Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE:CANN, OTC:HERTF) (“Heritage” or “Company”) announces it has partnered with Brock University (“Brock”) to further its research of cannabis tissue culture and contribute to the advanced understanding of the medical benefits of cannabis.

“Brock is committed to supporting the rapidly expanding cannabis industry in Niagara and across the country through research and innovation that improves competitiveness while deepening our understanding” said Brock’s Vice-President, Research Tim Kenyon. “The partnership will benefit in the future from Brock’s new Validating, Prototyping and Manufacturing Facility, which is expected to open in 2021.”
