Canada House is Positioned to Leverage its Newly Awarded Sales License and Will Have EU-GMP Certified Medical Grade Cannabis Ready for Patients by July 2019
TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Canada House Wellness Group Inc. (CSE:CHV) (“Canada House”) announced today that Abba Medix Corp. (“Abba”), CHV’s wholly owned Licensed Producer, has successfully completed its Pickering, Ont. facility and has commenced full scale operations of the cultivation of pharmaceutical-grade, handcrafted quality cannabis. This news comes only a few weeks after Abba being awarded its full sales license from Health Canada.
As an industry leading fully integrated medical cannabis company providing patient-specific cannabinoid therapy products and services, Canada House looks forward to completing its first full harvest of EU-GMP certified cannabis by July 2019. The facility anticipates annual production of between 2,000kg and 3,000kg as it enters into anticipated perpetual harvests every 3 weeks. This production represents annualized projected revenues of between $17m – $25.5m (based on current medical market prices) in addition to the existing $4-5M of revenues forecast from CHV’s clinic division, Canada House Clinics.
“Today is a monumental day for Canada House. Entering into full commercial scale production at our Pickering facility is one of the most significant milestones in our Company’s history. This will be the catalyst that will enable Canada House to further enhance shareholder value. With plants in the flowering room, and product coming to market mid year 2019, we see this as a critical step in our growth from a revenue, cashflow and profitability perspective as this will enable us to work towards the maturation of our company’s financial health with a line towards profitability this calendar year,” commented Chris Churchill-Smith, CEO of Canada House. “We take pride in the quality of our processes, our product and our team and look forward to continuing to distinguish ourselves as a leader in patient education, cannabis therapy services and now in the production of clinically focused cannabis cultivation and sales,” continued Churchill-Smith.
Abba is focused on premium genetics, and proven craft production techniques that are expected to produce some of the highest quality EU-GMP certified cannabis in the marketplace.
With the Pickering, Ont. facility now fully operational, Canada House is now approaching the provincial distributors for supply agreements. Abba expects to commence production and distribution of extract products and edibles later this year.
