Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE:CANN) (“Heritage” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the advancement of its previously announced Joint Venture Partnership (“JV”) with Empower Clinics Inc. (CSE: CBDT) (“Empower”) based in Sandy, Oregon, USA.

In September 2019, Heritage announced it had entered into a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to form a 50/50 ownership JV with Empower for the extraction of hemp for CBD oil production, and formulated CBD products. The JV is equally funded by both parties and since formation CDN$250,000 has been provided to the JV.


Heritage is now advancing the JV with the order and installation of extraction and post-production equipment units at Empower’s existing licenced hemp processing facility in Sandy, Oregon, in order to immediately begin performing hemp-based product manufacturing for proprietary formulations, tolling services, and third-party white labelling services for other distributors throughout the United States.

The proprietary branded products will be distributed through Empower’s corporately owned physician staffed health clinics in Oregon and Arizona, online at www.sunvalleyhealth.com and in upcoming new franchise locations which currently have access to over 165,000 patients.

Additionally, related downstream equipment is now being installed including gel cap processing, tincture bottle and vape cartridge filling, as well as labelling, packaging, storage and shipping services, to offer full-service end-to-end products to third parties.

Heritage is providing training and supervision related to the proprietary methods of extraction and oil production that is already being successfully produced in Canada by Heritage.

“Having the backing of an experienced partner with the financial strength of Heritage Cannabis is proving to be so beneficial for the development of our first extraction facility”, said Steven McAuley, Chief Executive Officer of Empower. “Together, we have already identified numerous opportunities to bring new orders to the JV facility ensuring we leverage the capacity we are building.”

“We are very pleased to be advancing our U.S. strategy through this mutually beneficial partnership with Empower, which provides Heritage ease of access to the world’s largest cannabis market”, stated Clint Sharples, Chief Executive Officer of Heritage. “The installation of extraction units is the next phase of the JV and another step toward successfully furthering our growth strategies.”
