Nextleaf Solutions Ltd. (“Nextleaf”, “OILS”, or the “Company”) (CSE:OILS, OTCQB:OILFF, FSE:L0MA) is pleased to announce the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted the Company its fifth U.S patent pertaining to Nextleaf’s proprietary process of industrial-scale extraction, refinement, and purification of cannabinoids.

The latest U.S. patent relates to post-extraction processing which includes filtration, novel decarboxylation methodologies, and the targeted removal of pigments – all of which create greater efficiencies and higher throughput rates. The resulting cannabinoid distillate oil is tasteless, odourless, highly purified, and ready to formulate into a variety of standardized THC and CBD infused products.


The Company also received news of two patents issued from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office as well as from Intellectual Property Australia. These patents echo the precedent set by the United States Patent and Trademark Office validating Nextleaf’s industrial-scale extraction and post-extraction processing technology.

“As we’ve seen with transactions like Canopy Growth Corp’s US$330 million acquisition of Ebbu Inc. and its portfolio of pending patents, there is significant shareholder value creation through the formalization and protection of intellectual property,” said Paul Pedersen, Nextleaf Solutions CEO. “The difficulties cannabis companies have faced in turning intellectual property into patents point to a broader issue in the industry, where many companies tout their intellectual property, but few have successfully obtained exclusive rights to their inventions. Nextleaf being granted eight patents by three international patent offices in key markets such as Canada, Australia, and the United States validates our technology and further reinforces our vision to develop disruptive intellectual property for industrial-scale extraction, purification and formulation of cannabinoids.”

The OILS team remains focused on expanding its IP portfolio by developing and acquiring the industry’s most advanced, efficient, and scalable cannabis processing solutions, and positioning Nextleaf as the preeminent cannabinoid extraction technology company. By applying its IP, Nextleaf has the potential to vastly reduce the cost of CBD and THC oil production,
