James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation (TSXV:JWCA) (“JWC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that on June 14, 2018, it entered into a letter of intent (“LOI”) with Medipharm Labs Inc. (“MediPharm”) pursuant to which the parties have agreed to negotiate a potential commercial arrangement whereby MediPharm will initiate a cannabis concentrate program for JWC that will involve JWC providing MediPharm with dried cannabis to use for the purposes of creating cannabis oil (the “Program”).
Upon execution of a definitive agreement in respect of the Program and subject to the bulk transfer approval of Health Canada, JWC will ship dried cannabis to MediPharm which MediPharm will use to produce cannabis oil. The parties intend that under the Program, MediPharm may provide cannabis oil to JWC or to other licensed producers of medical cannabis at the direction of JWC. Alternatively, JWC may release the cannabis extract for use by MediPharm. The Program will be established at no capital cost to JWC; however, MediPharm will charge JWC processing fees for the cannabis oil produced, and the revenue earned on sales of cannabis oil by MediPharm will be shared between MediPharm and JWC.
The parties intend that the term of the Program will be three years. This will provide JWC with a strategy for providing cannabis oil to patients.
Nathan Woodworth, JWC’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “JWC is a licensed producer of medical cannabis located in Kitchener, Ontario. By exclusively employing our proprietary aeroponic platform, GrowthStorm™, we are able to grow clean and consistent medical cannabis in our state of the art facility. JWC grew from starting as a family business, founded on family values. Since our inception as a group of patients and growers under the MMAR, we have remained focused on providing the best possible patient experience. We are very excited to enter into a relationship with MediPharm, which will allow us to provide our patients with convenient, effective edible cannabis oil products. The relationship with MediPharm will facilitate and expedite our ability to obtain the necessary licence amendments which will enable us to produce and then sell extract products derived from our quality-controlled plant material. We strongly believe that this is an important option for many patients, as an alternative method of dosing and ingestion. In its relationship with MediPharm, JWC will be able to provide a line of cannabis oils which will perfectly complement the other products offered by the Company.”
The implementation of the Program is subject to the completion of each parties’ due diligence and the negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement in respect of the Program.
