2. Portfolio news - Harvest One Cannabis
HVT, through it's wholly-owned subsidiary United Greeneries Ltd. ("United Greeneries") today announced that it has entered into an agreement to become a medical cannabis supplier to Shoppers Drug Mart.
Shoppers Drug Mart is Canada's leading drug store retailer with more than 1,300 pharmacist-owned locations from coast to coast.
Under the terms of the agreement, HVT will supply Shoppers Drug Mart with Satipharm branded medical cannabis products. The products will be sold online, as Canadian regulations restrict the sale of medical cannabis in retail pharmacies.
This marks the first time that Satipharm branded cannabis will be available for purchase. Working in conjunction with Shoppers Drug Mart in an effort to help consumers make specific, educated decisions about their purchases, Satipharm will be available in a continuum of products, each colour coded to indicate their place on the progression from the high THC of SatiWhite(TM) to the high CBD of SatiPurple(TM). At launch, United Greeneries will produce and ship an Indica variety of SatiSilver(TM) and a hybrid variety of SatiGreen(TM).
HVT represents 59% of the MMJ portfolio.
