Aurora Cannabis to acquire 8% of Choom Holdings
2018-06-13 08:02 ET - News Release
Mr. Terry Booth reports
AURORA CANNABIS TO BE LEAD INVESTOR IN CHOOM HOLDINGS PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Aurora Cannabis Inc. intends to complete a $7-million investment in Choom Holdings Inc., whereby Aurora will receive 9,859,155 common shares from Choom's treasury, priced at 71 cents per share, representing an 8-per-cent ownership interest.
Choom currently operates two late-stage applicants under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). Choom has agreements in place to acquire two additional late-stage applicant craft growers in British Columbia and Saskatchewan, including a facility in Sooke, B.C., anticipated to receive its cultivation licence from Health Canada in the third quarter of 2018.
The relationship between Aurora and Choom germinated through Aurora Pro, the platform through which the company delivers a variety of services to industry participants, including cultivation, genetics, regulatory consultancy and market development services. The Aurora Pro platform was developed by Aurora to interact with craft growers who are faced with potentially unreasonable entry barriers to the adult usage market in Canada.
Choom's strategy is to develop a carefully curated portfolio of high-grade cannabis strains with ideal characteristics for craft growing, targeting the premium segment of the adult consumer use market. Choom continues to develop a sophisticated brand, high-grade products and an elevated in-store customer experience. Images of the company's concept cannabis retail outlets can be found on-line.
To date, Choom has secured rights to 17 retail leases in highly defensible locations throughout Alberta. Applications to obtain a cannabis retail licence for these outlets have been submitted. Choom also has seven leases secured in B.C. and licences will be applied for upon commencement of the licensing program in B.C. Choom furthermore intends to play an important role in the Saskatchewan retail market and has a robust strategy in place to develop its presence in this market.
"Our investment in a consumer-focused brand with a strong retail strategy offers Aurora additional growth opportunities through supply, retail and distribution to the adult consumer use market, and provides a good example of the functioning of Aurora Pro," said Terry Booth, chief executive officer of Aurora. "Choom has established a well-developed brand, supported by deep roots within the British Columbia cannabis community and a passion for high-grade, handcrafted product. We're excited to strengthen our relationship with the team at Choom and help amplify their market reach as they continue to execute on their differentiated craft growing philosophy and their unique retail strategy."
Chris Bogart, president and CEO for Choom, added: "Teaming up with what we consider to be the most dynamic licensed producer with exceptional strength throughout the entire cannabis value chain, we believe, will prove to be a key growth accelerator for Choom. Both companies have a very strong focus on the entire customer experience, key in establishing exceptional brands. This investment by Aurora is a strong signal to our markets and our shareholders that Choom's strategy meets with the highest standards in the industry."

Aurora Cannabis to Acquire Cannabis Science Leader Anandia Laboratories Inc.
Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora” or the “Company”) (ACB.TO) (ACBFF) ( Frankfurt : 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) and Anandia Laboratories Inc. (“Anandia“) announced today that they have signed a binding term sheet whereby Aurora intends to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of privately-held Anandia in an all share transaction valued at approximately $115 million on a fully diluted basis (the “Transaction”).
Led by CEO and co-founder Jonathan Page , PhD, one of the industry’s most widely recognized cannabis experts, Anandia is considered the industry leader in science, genetics, and independent cannabis product testing. Dr. Page was the first scientist to sequence the cannabis genome and provide deep insights into the biosynthesis of cannabinoids and the interplay between cannabinoids and terpenes.
Anandia’s COO and co-founder, John Coleman , PhD, brings over 20 years of experience in drug research and commercialization as a natural product chemist. He previously worked in the biotech industry, most recently leading the team identifying new drug targets for the federally funded Centre for Drug Research and Development.
Anandia’s intellectual property (“IP”) includes the exclusive rights to a number of key genes in the cannabinoid pathway, as well as patents pending for genetic markers. The strength of Anandia’s expert staff, proprietary assets and know-how will provide Aurora with a very significant advantage in developing new cannabis cultivars. For instance, genome-based variety development and technological fortification can tailor metabolite (cannabinoid and terpene) profiles, improve disease resistance, enhance crop yield and optimize flowering time, and can be employed to develop specialized cultivars for oil production.
In advance of the forthcoming legalization of the adult use market and the significant associated growth, Anandia intends to expand its R&D, product testing, and product development facilities to meet both domestic and international demand, including the development of:
Anandia follows a three-pronged approach to creating value for its clients licensed under Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) and intends to continue to do so following completion of the Transaction:
Combining with Aurora gives Anandia access to significant new market opportunities in Canada and internationally through Aurora’s global footprint. Furthermore, leveraging Aurora’s capabilities and capacity in facility development, the combination will accelerate the construction of Anandia’s testing and product development laboratory in Vancouver , and a unique, purpose-built cannabis breeding facility ahead of Canadian adult-use legalization,
Anandia’s Product Testing
Anandia’s cannabis testing services will remain operationally independent of Aurora. These services will remain intact and Anandia is committed to continuing to serve all clients, including Licensed Producers and patient-growers, and Anandia is committed to maintaining complete data confidentiality. Anandia will continue to build capacity to take on the increased sample volume arising from legalization, including expansion to its new testing facility in Vancouver .
“This is a transformative acquisition that expands our science capabilities in the upstream segment of the seed-to-sale cannabis value chain, significantly boosting plant-based innovations in cultivation, enabling accelerated product development, and, ultimately, enhancing our margin profile going forward,” said Terry Booth , CEO of Aurora. “Anandia has a fantastic, complementary corporate culture and some of the best and brightest minds in the cannabis industry, including Dr. Jonathan Page , the first scientist to sequence the cannabis genome. By adding Dr. Page and the Anandia team to the existing Aurora and CanniMed research infrastructure, we are assembling a unique, world-class research group to capitalize on the many exciting opportunities the cannabis plant offers society.”
Dr. Jonathan Page , Anandia’s co-founder and CEO, added, “Anandia is already on its way to developing a world-leading library of cannabis genetics coupled with in-depth genomic analysis. We expect our breeding efforts to be accelerated through access to Aurora’s financial resources and scientific expertise, as well as through the addition of Aurora’s multiple cultivation sites. Anandia and Aurora are strong believers in research and science-based solutions. Joining forces with Aurora allows us to continue to provide best-in-class testing services to our customers, while rapidly advancing cannabis science for the benefit of patients, consumers and growers.”

Canopy to go ahead with pot trials to treat insomnia
2018-06-12 09:58 ET - News Release
Mr. Mark Zekulin reports
MEDICAL CANNABIS LEADERSHIP FROM CANOPY GROWTH AND SUBSIDIARY SPECTRUM CANNABIS
Canopy Growth Corp. has provided the following updates on its medical cannabis program and has reaffirmed its strong commitment to medical cannabis, the patients who depend on it and the health care professionals who prescribe it.
Historic clinical trial milestones
Marking a major milestone for medical cannabis in Canada, a phase IIb in-human clinical trial application was submitted by Canopy Health Innovations Inc. to evaluate the use of medical cannabis in the treatment of insomnia. Having received approval to proceed with these clinical trials in the form of a no objection letter (NOL) from Health Canada, Canopy Health will now proceed with these robust clinical trials, in collaboration with a leading Canadian research institution.
In light of the significant potential for cannabis in treating a range of medical conditions, this is the first in a planned series of trials to investigate and quantify the therapeutic effect of cannabis and cannabinoids across a selection of indications with significant unmet needs, working toward the ultimate goal of patented, insurance-eligible cannabinoid-based medicines.
World-class leadership for a global industry
As previously announced, starting in July, 2018, Dr. Mark Ware will commence his role as the company's chief medical officer. Under his leadership the company will continue to lead the global medical cannabis industry forward with a focus on research, product innovation and stakeholder education in the numerous regions where Spectrum Cannabis operates, including Latin America, Australia, Europe and North America.
Patients-first pricing mentality
Honouring the company's commitment to affordable medical cannabis and pricing predictability for patients, Canopy Growth is pleased to inform patients that, upon the passing of the Cannabis Act, the company will absorb the proposed excise tax on all Spectrum Cannabis products sold in Canada. Affordability is a key consideration for patients. It is important today to show leadership and reduce the price burden placed on customers, while the company works toward insurance eligibility for medical cannabis.
On top of this, all Spectrum Cannabis dried flower products will be priced at $8.50 per gram or less. If a registered customer is currently paying more for a Spectrum flower product this means new savings, and if they are paying less that price will remain the same. As always, Spectrum Cannabis products available on-line through the Tweed Main Street website are eligible for the company's industry-first compassionate pricing program that assists those on limited incomes afford their medicine.
"Using Canada's rich ecosystem of researchers and established cannabis stakeholders as a centre of expertise, Spectrum's global expansion is rooted in sophistication," said Mark Zekulin, president, Canopy Growth. "We are proudly a research- and patient-focused company that will continue to drive the cannabis innovation agenda forward around the world."
Here is to future growth.
About Canopy Growth Corp.
Canopy Growth is a world-leading diversified cannabis and hemp company, offering distinct brands and curated cannabis varieties in dried, oil and softgel capsule forms.

Aurora Cannabis pleased with passage of Bill C-45
2018-06-08 04:40 ET - News Release
AURORA CANNABIS WELCOMES HISTORIC SENATE VOTE TO LEGALIZE THE ADULT USAGE OF CANNABIS IN CANADA
"This truly is a monumental day for Canada and the cannabis movement, with the ground-breaking Senate vote to pass Bill C-45 representing a major milestone, strengthening our global leadership in the cannabis sector, and making this country the first in the Group of Seven Nations (G7) to take this historic step," said Terry Booth, CEO. "We applaud the government's intelligent and rational public policy, initiating wholesale legislative changes - focused on clearly defined objectives - to reduce the negative impact of prohibition, while establishing a well-regulated system designed to protect public health and public safety. We must also salute and congratulate the advocates, the activists and the passionate who for decades, and often at great personal risk, spoke up, sat in, appealed laws, wrote new ones, ran studies, educated, and changed perceptions towards ending criminal prohibition."
"We are very pleased with today's vote, but more important work remains, particularly with respect to how our industry is allowed to operate and profile itself in order to meet Canadian adult consumer expectations," added Mr. Booth. "In addition, with legalization alone, the burden of prior non-violent cannabis-related convictions and charges will continue to carry a significant and unacceptable negative impact on many Canadians, disproportionately affecting individuals from marginalized populations. Aurora believes the government must now urgently consider amnesty for non-violent cannabis-related offenses, and will continue advocating on this important topic. Furthermore, we will continue our advocacy to obtain tax-exempt status for medical cannabis in support of Canada's patients whose quality of life has greatly improved through cannabis-based therapies. Medical cannabis currently is the sole prescribed medicine in Canada upon which any tax is charged, and we will continue our pursuit to correct this oversight."
Mr. Booth concluded, "With the implementation of Bill C-45 around the corner, we will continue our high-paced execution and deliver innovations, industry-leading customer care, and rapidly growing production capacity to this significant and exciting market. We will bring the Aurora Standard to the adult consumer market, delivering a uniquely satisfying customer experience."
Aurora Cannabis Enters into Global Softgel Business with Capcium Inc.
Strategic Investment Secures 19.99% Ownership of a Softgel Production Leader
EDMONTON, June 7, 2018 - Aurora Cannabis Inc. ("Aurora" or the "Company") (TSX: ACB) (OTCQB: ACBFF) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) and Capcium Inc. ("Capcium") announced today that the companies have signed a strategic agreement to produce high quality cannabis-based softgels for patients. Additionally, Aurora has acquired a 19.99% ownership interest in Capcium by way of a non-brokered private placement for consideration of $10 million.
Capcium, a privately-owned Montreal-based global leader in softgel manufacturing, has emerged as one of the leading manufacturers in the cannabis industry. Production of high-precision dosage controlled softgels is an extensive and complex process. Capcium, through its pharmaceutical and encapsulation experience, has developed expertise that is ready to be applied to the cannabis industry and deliver high-volume production capacity.
Capcium intends to use the proceeds from the Aurora investment to expand its cutting-edge cannabis softgel manufacturing business, which includes the construction and operation of a large, state-of-the-art facility, to be completed in Q4, 2019.
In advance of this new Capcium facility, and to accelerate time to market, Capcium and Aurora have agreed to immediately establish a high-volume, state-of-the-art softgel manufacturing operation at Aurora Vie, the Company's cannabis production facility in Pointe-Claire, Québec. Softgel sales from this facility are anticipated to commence (subject to Health Canada approval) by the end of Summer 2018. Capcium will be the exclusive manufacturer of Aurora's North American cannabis softgel products. The agreement also contemplates Capcium being the company's preferred global manufacturer of softgel cannabis products.
"This investment in Capcium reflects our strategic objective to further expand our differentiated, higher-margin product offerings," said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. "Capcium's extensive know-how has enabled it to develop an advanced technology for the high-volume production of cannabis-based softgels. This provides us with a strong competitive advantage, positioning us well to build a leading position in the production and sale of value-added cannabis products globally. We are proud that Aurora quickly is becoming the partner of choice in the cannabis industry, and we look forward to capitalizing with Capcium on the significant opportunity that softgels represent."
Sylvain Duvernay, CEO of Capcium, added, "Teaming up with what we believe to be the most innovative Licensed Producer with excellent international distribution channels, greatly enhances our growth prospects. We are delighted that Aurora and Capcium will become long-term partners, and look forward to bringing Québec made softgel cannabis products to Canada and to the global markets."
Aurora and Capcium believe the benefits of the transaction are significant for all shareholders. Aurora's brand leadership, quality products, customer care, innovation and deep product knowledge will be a strong complement to Capcium's well-established softgel manufacturing expertise. This deal will establish Québec as a world leader for cannabis value added products by leveraging the experience and expertise of two innovative companies with Québec operations, while creating highly-skilled Québec-based employment in the rapidly expanding cannabis sector.

Aurora Cannabis Launches New Cannabis Product Line – Aurora Frost
Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora” or the “Company”) (ACB.TO) (ACBFF) ( Frankfurt : 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) today announces the launch of new product line called Aurora Frost . This new dried cannabis product line represents the highest potency offering of any Aurora product launched to date at over 35% THC.
Aurora Frost products are produced from premium whole flower. The products, generally known throughout the industry as kief, consist primarily of trichomes, the resinous glands rich in active pharmaceutical ingredients, including terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD.
Aurora’s in-house technology team successfully developed a new and proprietary technology used to efficiently produce high volume, GMP compliant, Aurora Frost products, based on a process that finely trims the trichomes from the cannabis flower.
Beginning today, Aurora Frost is shipping in convenient, child-safe, certified glass bottles. Products are sold in one gram increments, priced at $35 per gram ( $25 per gram for compassionate pricing patients). Like all Aurora products, Aurora Frost comes with publicly available third party independent laboratory results on potency, terpene profile, and contaminant analysis.
“Successfully developing a proprietary, fine trimming and GMP compliant technology needed to produce these high-quality products at commercial scale, provides us with a remarkable advantage in addressing this niche of the cannabis market,” said Terry Booth , CEO. “Aurora now makes this high potency medical cannabis available to its patients, reflecting the Aurora Standard of innovation and patient care.”
SMITHS FALLS, ON, May 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) ("Canopy Growth" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired Daddy Cann Lesotho PTY Ltd., trading as Highlands ("Highlands").
Based in the Kingdom of Lesotho ("Lesotho"), Highlands holds a license to cultivate, manufacture, supply, hold, import, export and transport cannabis and its resin. Lesotho is a high altitude mountainous kingdom that boasts over 300 days of sunshine per year and was the first African nation to legalize medical cannabis in 2017. It has ideal humidity and growing conditions for greenhouse cultivation. Together with very low operating and resource costs, this places Canopy Growth in a position to produce large quantities of high quality medical cannabis at a low cost. Lesotho is also strategically positioned for the future medical cannabis economy of Southern Africa including the potential market of South Africa, with a population of over 55 million people, where medical cannabis laws are being developed.
"Lesotho is Canopy Growth's first step into Africa and we look forward to working with the strong local team at Highlands to establish production and distribution capabilities consistent with Canopy's global standard for high-quality, regulated medical cannabis products," said Mark Zekulin, President, Canopy Growth.
Combining the domestic and regional knowledge of Highlands with the global experience and expertise of Canopy Growth is the latest example of the Company establishing a meaningful local presence. With the objective of future local production to serve the regional market, these operations are part of Canopy Growth's commitment to the Lesotho economy including supporting job creation and lasting community engagement.
All key members of Highlands's management team will continue to lead the organization as part of the Canopy Growth family.
"We're excited to join the Canopy Growth family and bring together our strong entrepreneurial experience and local knowledge in the region with Canopy Growth's track record and quality standards in the global medical cannabis industry," said Jody Aufrichtig, Founder, Highlands. "Lesotho and Southern Africa have enormous potential and we look forward to building a responsible medical cannabis business across the region."
Under the terms of the agreement, the Company issued 666,362 common shares in the capital of the Company to the sole shareholder of Highlands on closing and, subject to meeting certain milestones, the Company will issue up to an additional 333,281 common shares to the sole shareholder of Highlands for a total of up to 999,643 common shares based on the 30 day volume weighted average price of $28.763 of Canopy Growth's common shares on the TSX as of May 11, 2018. The total value of the consideration payable by the Company under the terms of the agreement is approximately $28.8 million.
This marks the fifth continent of operations for Canopy Growth who has market presence in North and South America, Oceania, Europe, and now Africa.

Aurora Cannabis signs distribution deal in Germany
2018-05-28 07:55 ET - News Release
AURORA CANNABIS SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH HEINRICH KLENK GMBH & CO. KG
Aurora Cannabis Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary Pedanios GmbH, has signed a collaboration agreement with Heinrich Klenk GmbH & Co. KG, one of Europe's largest medicinal plant companies. Klenk, whose products are carried in over 25,000 pharmacies throughout Germany and Europe, has been importing, exporting and processing medicinal plants and herbal raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry for over 90 years.
Under the terms of the agreement, Aurora has launched a new cannabis brand in Germany called Cannabis Klenk which is produced in Canada, imported by Pedanios, and sold to German pharmacies through Klenk's existing and wide-reaching pharmaceutical wholesale distribution network. Klenk has an unmatched reputation in Germany, both for the quality of its products, and for the reliability of its distribution network.
"Klenk is a fantastic partner for Aurora, enabling us to add to our already leading presence in the German market with one of the country's most widely recognized medicinal plant brands and most comprehensive distribution networks," said Neil Belot, chief global business development officer. "Operating for over 90 years, Klenk is one of the most trusted partners to the pharmaceutical wholesale and pharmacy sectors. This, we believe, will help further destigmatize the use of medical cannabis in Germany and accelerate growth. Klenk's decentralized distribution capabilities ensure short supply lines throughout the entire country, greatly increasing our market reach, while reducing the need to invest heavily in our own sales and fulfilment capabilities."
Klenk and its medicinal plant products are synonymous with quality and are made available across Germany and Europe through decades-long relationships with the leading European pharmaceutical wholesale distributors. Cannabis Klenk branded products are currently held in over 20 distribution hubs located across Germany to facilitate fast and uncomplicated access, as well as same-day delivery service to pharmacies where available.

....sicher ist das mit Vorsicht zu geniessen. Als Cronos zur Nasdaq avisierte schoss der Kurs hoch - kaum dort ging es rasant bachab, da habe ich einen gewaltigen Schuh voll rausgezogen. Es hiess die Leerverkäufer hätten sich dort ihr Mütchen gekühlt, mit Erfolg - grrrrrrr
Ist hier jemand dabei? Mich dünkt der Kurs interessant, allerdings stellt sich mir die Frage, ob das Unternehmen nicht etwas viel am Hals hat mit seinen Grossinvestitionen?
Z.B.bei CGC gefiel mir der Verlauf recht gut, ich sorge mich zwar, weil sie an die US-Börse wollen. Das ist teuer und falls dort dann doch mal wieder ein Verbot befohlen wird, wäre das recht gefährlich für die Investierten. Trauen kann ich nicht mehr recht, wenn man dort Einzug hält. Nicht wegen CGC. Aber die wechselden Meinungen und Bestimmungen und Diktate dort, für diese Branche, dünken mich unabsehbar.
Ich habe heute zwei Nachrichten. Eine finde ich gut, die andere finde ich für mich nicht so beruhigend.
Nun, dies ist die gute Nachricht:
SMITHS FALLS, ON, May 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy Growth" or the "Company") (TSX: WEED) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding agreement (the "Agreement") to purchase, subject to certain conditions, the remaining 33% stake of BC Tweed Joint Venture Inc. ("BC Tweed") not currently owned by the Company. The consolidation of the two largest licensed cannabis facilities in the world into full Canopy Growth ownership cements the Company's commitment to shareholder value through scale production.
Canopy Growth, upon closing of the transaction, will issue up to $374 million worth of shares in the Company, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to the minority shareholders of BC Tweed (the "Operators"). Payments are milestone-based and will be released over four years based upon the achievement of certain production milestones. The Operators, multi-generational cultivators, will continue to manage the BC-based operations for a period of 5 years.
The BC Tweed greenhouses represent a meaningful share of the entire Canadian production landscape with up to 3 million square feet of greenhouse growing capacity. Since the formation of BC Tweed in October of 2017, already over 1.7 million square feet has been licensed for production to meet to oncoming recreational cannabis demand across the country.
"Our provincial distribution agreements, commitment to quality and value-add processing, and leading brand portfolio position Canopy Growth as the market share leader in Canada's future recreational cannabis market," said Bruce Linton, Chairman & CEO, Canopy Growth. "Consolidating BC Tweed fully under the Canopy ensures that the full value of our strategic position is realized by Canopy shareholders."
Under the terms of the Agreement, subject to approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and certain other conditions, the Company will issue $374 million worth of common shares in the capital of the Company based on the volume weighted average price per common share for the 20 trading day period ended May 11, 2018 (the "VWAP"). The Company will also pay $1 million in cash as a non-refundable deposit against the purchase price. In addition, the Company will issue $20 million worth of common shares in the capital of the Company at the same VWAP in connection with an option to acquire certain future infrastructure from the Operators, subject to certain conditions. The transaction is anticipated to close in early July, following the negotiation of definitive agreements.
Und diese hier, naja, ist Vertrauenssache, finde ich.-

The strain Super Critical is available now as part of Tweed's elite CraftGrow line, and AB Labs anticipates shipping their other strains in the near future.
"Canadian medical cannabis patients value product diversity and we're committed to offering them an industry leading curated lineup from Tweed and our CraftGrow partners," said Mark Zekulin, President, Canopy Growth. "We're excited to welcome AB Labs product as the newest CraftGrow addition to the Tweed Main Street online store".
"The Canadian cannabis industry is diverse, dynamic and thriving, with valuable partnerships being forged every day," said Invictus founder and CEO Dan Kriznic.

I'm pleased to report that Invictus remains on track for achieving its substantial cultivation and harvest goals across 2018, and delivers more and more strains and cannabis volume into Canada's thriving consumer marketplace as Canada approaches legalization of the adult market. To further accommodate this the Company has developed a multifaceted sales strategy aimed to target each channel for sales and distribution such as establishing supply agreements and product calls with provincial governments and licensed producers, developing retail storefronts across Western Canada, and continuing to focus on the medical cannabis sector."
Tweed's highly curated CraftGrow line works only with top producers cultivating Canada's finest cannabis, and AB Labs is honored to have been the second cultivator to successfully transfer cannabis products to be sold though the e-commerce platform.
The Super Critical strain from AB Labs available on the platform is a high-yielding 50/50 hybrid of sativa and indica, a mix of Big Bud, Skunk and White Widow. The combination of exceptional yield plus superb flower makes it a favorite among growers.
AB Labs continues to make continuous progress on its 40,000 square foot Phase 2 facility, which once completed AB Labs will total 56,000 square foot of production capability. To-date in Phase 2 the interior demolition has been completed, cleaned and sanitized and all upgrades to the electrical and HVAC systems have also been completed.

The Company's wholly owned subsidiary Acreage Pharms Ltd. ("Acreage Pharms"), located in West-Central Alberta on 150 acres, has approximately 40,000 square feet of cannabis ready production with its recently completed Phase 2 expansion. The Company intends on expanding to 120,000 square feet by the end of 2018 once Phase 3 is complete.
Invictus also owns 50% of AB Laboratories Inc. ("AB Labs"), a licensed producer under the ACMPR located in Hamilton, Ontario. AB Labs currently operates in a 16,000 square foot facility and recently acquired a facility adjacent to the existing property that will allow for a total of 56,000 square feet of cultivation space expected to be ready for production by June 2018. During the first quarter of 2018 AB Labs submitted a secondary license to Health Canada for a nearby property on 100 acres under the name AB Ventures Inc. ("AB Ventures").
Combined, the licensed producers owned by Invictus expect to have approximately 200,000 square feet of cannabis production capacity by the end of 2018 and 520,000 square feet of cannabis production capacity by the end of 2019.

Canopy Growth's Canopy Health files provisional patents
2018-04-23 08:23 ET - News Release
Mr. Bruce Linton reports
CANOPY HEALTH INNOVATIONS FILES A SUITE OF ADDITIONAL CANNABIS-RELATED PATENTS
Canopy Health Innovations, the partly owned biopharmaceutical research and development affiliate of Canopy Growth Corp., has, alone or with its subsidiary Canopy Animal Health or through its joint venture Beckley Canopy Therapeutics, filed eight provisional U.S. patents pertaining to the delivery and application of cannabis and cannabinoid-based therapeutics in certain indications.
Specifically, the eight patent applications relate to the following:
In addition to updated applications relating to earlier Insomnia patent applications, this brings the total number of U.S. provisional patent filings (including Canopy Animal Health and Beckley Canopy Therapeutics) to 39.
These filings are part of a concerted plan to bring to patients and health care providers innovative medicines and health products targeting disease areas with substantial medical needs. As part of this plan, Canopy Health and its affiliates are collaborating with respected world-class academic researchers and clinicians, and working with leading research organizations and regulators in jurisdictions of interest to develop and register these breakthrough products.
"As global medical markets emerge the trend among regulators favours highly regulated and highly repeatable medical cannabis options," said Bruce Linton, chairman and chief executive officer, Canopy Growth. "Through Canopy Health's work we are bulding a body of knowledge around cannabinoid medicine that will lead to its inclusion in mainstream health care for the benefit of patients."
Canopy Health and its affiliates continue their practice of filing provisional patents in the United States, which is common in the field of intellectual property generation and protection. Patents are first filed in the United States to create a priority date and allow for future filings in other selected jurisdictions, including Canada.
Although cannabis is not presently federally legal in the United States for commercial purposes, it is still the most common "first to file" jurisdiction for intellectual property generation and protection activity pertaining to cannabis and cannabinoids.
Here's to future growth.

Aurora Cannabis acquires Agropro, Borela hemp outfits
2018-09-12 08:22 ET - News Release
AURORA CANNABIS ACQUIRES EUROPE'S LARGEST ORGANIC HEMP COMPANY
Aurora Cannabis Inc. has acquired Europe's largest producer, processor and supplier of certified organic hemp and hemp products, Agropro UAB, as well as hemp processor and distributor Borela UAB.
Agropro, a hemp seed contracting and processing company, and its sister company Borela UAB, a processor and distributor of organic hulled hemp seeds, hemp seed protein, hemp flour and hemp seed oil, currently has 1,600 hectares (4,000 acres) under contract, potentially yielding more than one million kilograms of organic hemp with additional contracts available to expand to more than 3,000 hectares across Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland.
Previously, the companies were focused exclusively on the production and sale of hemp-seed-based products to markets across Europe, North America and Asia. Each year, very substantial quantities of CBD (cannabidiol) containing hemp biomass were left on the field unutilized.
Postacquisition, Aurora intends to extract, refine and productize the organic hemp biomass into a wide range of organic CBD-based wellness products to generate new and significant revenue streams in this burgeoning market. With increasing recognition of the medical and general health benefits of CBD-based products, Aurora continues executing on a CBD-focused strategy that covers the entire value chain, from supply, through genetics research and clinical trials, to product development and distribution to various domestic and international markets across five continents.
In addition to the CBD-related market potential, hemp is an increasingly sought-after food supplement and meat substitute for the large and rapidly growing health food, vegetarian and vegan markets, due to its high protein content. Through its majority-owned subsidiary Hempco, Aurora is already executing on a number of hemp food market opportunities, and intends to integrate Agropro's organic supply and distribution with Hempco's to enhance market access and accelerate growth of high-margin, premium hemp-based product offerings.
On Feb. 1, 2018, Borela's hemp grain processing facility became the only European hemp company to receive a BRC quality certificate, enabling Borela to supply supermarkets with its product. Borela's operations have also received USDA Organic, Eco-Cert, as well as other certifications, enabling the company to market premium products across large markets.
The organic certification achieved by both Agropro and Borela will enable the launch of new premium products, positively impacting the company's margin profile for hemp-based products.
"Agropro's position as Europe's leading producer of premium organic hemp along with the significant and previously unutilized CBD production from the large quantities of currently discarded biomass, makes this an accretive acquisition and one that positions Aurora well to become a global leader in organic CBD-based wellness products," said Terry Booth, chief executive officer.
Neil Belot, chief global business development officer, added: "With our industry-leading team of crop and plant scientists, extraction and product formulation expertise, and wide-reaching global distribution networks and partnerships, we anticipate increasing production, extraction, refinement and supply of CBD, as well as other hemp-based food products. With a broad European footprint, extensive contracted land agreements and solid existing revenue streams, Agropro and Borela provide further expansion of our international footprint, while playing an important role in the execution of our CBD wellness and hemp-based food products strategy."
Skirmantas Nikstele, co-founder and chief executive officer of Agropro, added: "As the largest producer, processor and supplier of organic hemp products in Europe, we have developed a strong reputation for quality and consistency with our customers across the globe. Through Aurora, we gain access to a wider distribution network, as well as an access to industry-leading science to help ramp up production, while enhancing margins through the introduction of new products, proven production techniques and robust genetics."
Hemp -- superfood with high market growth
The hemp plant is made up of three components. Seeds, which are used in food and personal care products, leaves and flowers, which produce cannabidiol (CBD), used in medical products, supplements and beauty products, and stalk, which produces fibre and hurd, used in paper products, building materials, clothing and other textiles.
Hemp seed oil offers the richest and most balanced source found in nature of essential fatty acids (EFAs), such as omega 3 and omega 6 oils. EFAs play a very important role in critically important processes, such as detoxification and the formation of brain cells, hormones and neurotransmitters. Hemp seed is not only rich in essential fatty acids, it also represents an important source for amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Essential amino acids are not produced by our bodies, and therefore must come from food. Hemp seeds contain all nine essential amino acids, as well as other nutritionally important vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc, carotene, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium and enzymes.
These characteristics have resulted in strong continued market growth of hemp-based products. Grand View Research (industrial hemp market size, share and trends analysis, 2018) anticipates the industrial hemp market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 14.0 per cent to $10.6-billion (U.S.) by 2025. The hemp seed market, as a subcategory, is anticipated to show even stronger growth.
With Agropro and Borela, Aurora has acquired a very substantial supply of organic hemp seed products, as well as the capacity to process the raw material into products, and the international distribution channels to sell these. Market reach will be further strengthened through integration with Hempco, while Aurora's science teams will be spearheading research into cultivation yield enhancements, as well as further medical and wellness applications.
Terms of the transaction
Aurora purchased 100 per cent of the issued and outstanding shares of Agropro UAB and Borela UAB for total cash consideration of 5,364,000 euros (approximately $8.1-million (Canadian)) and common shares of Aurora equivalent to 960,000 euros (approximately $1.4-million (Canadian)), based on the five-day volume-weighted average price as of Sept. 10, 2018. In addition, Aurora will also refinance existing debt totalling 2,076,000 euros (approximately $3.1-million (Canadian)) and provide a finder's fee totalling 1,517,400 euros (approximately $2.3-million (Canadian)).
Headquartered in Edmonton, Alta., Canada, with financed capacity in excess of 570,000 kilograms per year and sales and operations in 14 countries across five continents, Aurora is one of the world's largest and leading cannabis companies. Aurora is vertically integrated and horizontally diversified across every key segment of the value chain, from facility engineering and design to cannabis breeding and genetics research, cannabis and hemp production, derivatives, high value-add product development, home cultivation, and wholesale and retail distribution.

Medreleaf Bradford verfügt über eine großvolumige Kohlendioxid-Extraktionsanlage, die die Ölproduktion erheblich steigern wird und in Erwartung des Erhalts der Verkaufslizenz erhebliche Mengen an Derivaten vorrätig hält. Aurora Eau, eine 48.000 Quadratfuß große Einrichtung mit einer Produktionskapazität von 4.500 Kilogramm pro Jahr, wurde speziell für die GMP-Standards (Good Manufacturing Practices) der Europäischen Union entwickelt und repräsentiert die nächste Entwicklung der Indoor-Grow-Anlagen von Aurora. Aurora Eau wurde gebaut, um Flexibilität in allen wichtigen Produktionsparametern zu ermöglichen, um die aktuellen exotischen Sorten des Unternehmens sowie neue Stämme, die noch nicht eingeführt wurden, und neue Genetik, die für den medizinischen Gebrauch und den Gebrauch für Erwachsene bestimmt sind, optimal anzupassen. Aurora Eau liegt in Lachute, Que., Und liegt auf einem 46 Hektar großen landwirtschaftlichen Nutzland, das Aurora für 136.000 Dollar für künftige Expansionszwecke erwerben kann. Dies würde die gewichtete Präsenz des Unternehmens in Quebec erweitern und zusätzliche Kapazitäten für die künftige Produktentwicklung und den Vertrieb bieten. Das Unternehmen wird sich wie auch seine anderen Einrichtungen im Rahmen der Verpflichtung des Unternehmens zum Aurora-Standard und zur weiteren Diversifizierung der Lieferkette auf dem Weg zu einer EU-GMP-Zertifizierung fortentwickeln. Bis heute hat Aurora zwei EU-GMP-Anbauanlagen in Kanada sowie eine EU-GMP-zertifizierte Einrichtung in Deutschland, die von ihrer hundertprozentigen Tochtergesellschaft Aurora Europe GmbH betrieben wird, für den Import, die Freisetzung und den Vertrieb von Cannabis. Der Anbau begann in Eau Der Anbau hat bei Aurora Eau begonnen, nachdem eine Mischung aus Klonen und ausgereiften Pflanzen mit einem maßgeschneiderten, umweltfreundlichen Transporter erhalten wurde, der von Auroras hundertprozentiger Tochter B.C. Nordlichter. Der neue Transporter ermöglicht es Aurora, große Mengen von Klonen und Müttern kostengünstig zu transportieren, was eine schnelle Ansiedlung neuer Einrichtungen ermöglicht. Nach dem erfolgreichen Transfer ist Aurora Eau jetzt in voller Produktion. Managementkommentar "Wir sind stolz auf die Errungenschaften von Aurora Eau und mit sieben Produktionslizenzen sind wir außerordentlich gut positioniert, um sowohl auf dem kanadischen als auch auf dem internationalen Markt weiter auf dem Markt zu bestehen", sagte Terry Booth, Chief Executive Officer von Aurora. "Mit der großtechnischen Produktion bei Aurora Sky haben wir die Möglichkeit, die Produktion von Aurora Eau in Nischenmärkten zu investieren, wodurch wir unsere Markenbekanntheit steigern und unser Margenprofil verbessern. Unsere neue Ölproduktionslizenz in Bradford erhöht unsere Produktionskapazität weiter höhermargige Öle und treiben Wachstum. "

Aurora Cannabis Closes $200 Million Debt Facility with BMO
Historic Financing with a Canadian Tier 1 Bank Provides Additional Capital to Drive Growth
EDMONTON, Sept. 4, 2018 - Aurora Cannabis Inc. ("Aurora" or the "Company") (TSX: ACB) (OTCQB: ACBFF) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) today announced that it has closed its previously announced debt facility with the Bank of Montreal ("BMO"). The facility consists of a $150 million term loan and a $50 million revolving credit facility (together, the "Loans"), both of which mature in 2021. Included in the facility is an option to upsize the facility to $250 million total following the implementation of Bill C-45 on October 17, 2018, subject to agreement by BMO and satisfaction of certain legal and business conditions.
The debt facility is primarily secured by Aurora's production facilities, including Aurora Sky, Aurora Mountain, and Aurora Vie. Strategically located at Edmonton International Airport, Aurora Sky is the world's most technologically advanced cannabis facility, projected to produce in excess of 100,000 kg per year of high-quality, low-cost per gram, cannabis upon completion.
"We are incredibly proud to have successfully closed this historic debt facility supported by a premier Canadian bank, BMO, who understands our needs and potential. This is both a reflection of the rapidly maturing nature of the broader cannabis industry and strong validation of the economic potential of Aurora's best-in-class, technologically advanced production facilities," said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. "With BMO and the syndicate lenders, Aurora gains significant runway to expansion opportunities that will positively contribute to our long-term margin profile and provide accelerated entry into multiple international markets. This additional capital positions us well to continue building the pre-eminent global cannabis company with a focus on vertically integrated, geographically and horizontally diversified assets."
Glen Ibbott, CFO of Aurora, added, "The closing conditions of this debt facility included stringent due diligence of Aurora's current production facilities as well as a thorough review of Aurora's projected revenue growth across all of our divisions. With our extremely strong balance sheet, Aurora is well positioned to execute on our business strategy, including accelerated development and launch of new products, continued rapid expansion of our domestic and international operations, and entry into new global markets."
Pursuant to the agreed upon conditions of the Loans, Aurora may, at its discretion, repay the balance of the Loans without penalty, at any time. The pricing of the Loans is a set margin over the BMO CAD Prime Rate or a Bankers' Acceptance of appropriate term. Based on the current BMO CAD Prime Rate, the interest payable is expected to be in the mid to high 4% per annum range over the term of the Loans. Additional details on this new sector benchmark debt facility can be found in the Company's documents that have been filed on www.sedar.com.
Headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with funded capacity in excess of 570,000 kg per year and sales and operations in 14 countries across five continents, Aurora is one of the world's largest and leading cannabis companies. Aurora is vertically integrated and horizontally diversified across every key segment of the value chain, from facility engineering and design to cannabis breeding and genetics research, cannabis and hemp production, derivatives, high value-add product development, home cultivation, wholesale and retail distribution.
Highly differentiated from its peers, Aurora has established a uniquely advanced, consistent and efficient production strategy, based on purpose-built facilities that integrate leading-edge technologies across all processes, defined by extensive automation and customization, resulting in the massive scale production of high quality product at ultra-low costs. Intended to be replicable and scalable globally, these production facilities are designed to produce cannabis of significant scale, with high quality, industry-leading yields, and ultra-low per gram production costs. Each of Aurora's facilities is built to meet European Union (EU) GMP standards, and its first production facility, the recently acquired MedReleaf Markham facility, and its wholly owned European medical cannabis distributor Aurora Europe GmbH, have achieved this level of certification.
In addition to the Company's rapid organic growth and strong execution on strategic M&A, which to date includes 10 companies acquired – MedReleaf, CanvasRx, Peloton Pharmaceutical, Pedanios, H2 Biopharma, Urban Cultivator, BC Northern Lights, Larssen Greenhouses, CanniMed Therapeutics, and Anandia – Aurora is distinguished by its reputation as a partner of choice and employer of choice in the global cannabis sector, having invested in and established strategic partnerships with a range of leading innovators, including: The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD), Radient Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RTI), Hempco Food and Fiber Inc. (TSXV: HEMP), Cann Group Ltd. (ASX: CAN), Micron Waste Technologies Inc. (CSE: MWM), Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO), Namaste Technologies Inc. (TSXV: N), Evio Beauty Group (private), Wagner Dimas (private), CTT Pharmaceuticals (OTCC: CTTH), Capcium Inc. (private), and Alcanna Inc. (TSX: CLIQ).

Cannabis-Aktien: Canopy Growth, Aurora Cannabis und Co brechen ein – droht Ärger aus den USA?

Die boomende kanadische Cannabis-Industrie scheint den USA ein Dorn im Auge zu sein. Wie das Magazin Politico berichtet, gibt es Überlegungen, gegen Pot-Investoren sowie -Arbeiter ein Einreiseverbot zu verhängen. Die Hintergründe für den Vorstoß liegen auf der Hand: Frisches Öl ins Handelsstreit-Feuer zwischen den USA und Kanada gießen.
Wie ein hochrangiger Beamter für Grenzkontrollen gegenüber Politicoverlauten ließ, könnten Marihuana-Raucher aus den USA verbannt werden. "Unsere Beamten werden nicht alle Einreisenden fragen, ob sie Marihuana konsumieren. Aber wenn Fragen in diese Richtung führen oder ein entsprechender Geruch aus dem Auto kommt, könnten wir eine Befragung durchführen", so Todd Owen.
Viel Rauch um wenig
Den USA geht es weniger um den Cannabis-Konsum an-sich. Eher geht es den Vereinigten Staaten darum, von der boomenden Industrie in Kanada überrollt zu werden. Schließlich wird dem Cannabis-Markt ein Multi-Milliarden-Potenzial nachgesagt. Zudem enstehen eine Vielzahl neuer Arbeitsplätze in der Branche.
Trotzdem sorgte der Bericht für stark fallende Notierungen bei den Cannabis-Aktien. Canopy Growth verlor im regulären Handel knapp 14 Prozent, Aurora Cannabis neun Prozent. Cronos, auf die sich die Shortseller von Citron Research eingeschossen haben, verlor ebenfalls gut zehn Prozent an Wert. Ein großer Pot-Stock konnte sich, zumindest im regulären Handel, mit einem satten Plus aus der Affäre ziehen: Tilray. Wie das Cannabis-Unternehmen gestern vorbörslich bekannt gab, werde man fortan Cannabisöl und -blüten nach Deutschland liefern. In der Spitze schoss das Papier auf 127,27 Dollar. Ein neues Rekordhoch. Nachbörslich verlor die Tilray-Aktie dann doch über fünf Prozent.
Nichts für schwache Nerven
Der Cannabis-Sektor ist in den vergangenen Wochen heiß gelaufen. Kein Wunder, dass die Cannabis-Aktien in der Folge mit satten Kursverlusten reagierten. Davon sollten sich investierte Anleger jedoch nicht verunsichern lassen. Fakt ist: Die Legalisierungswelle rollt, in Kanada wird es am 17. Oktober 2018 soweit sein. DER AKTIONÄR hat in der neuen Ausgabe die Branche genauer unter die Lupe genommen und erklärt in der Story, welche Aktien noch kaufenswert sind.

CocaCola möchte Cannabis-Drinks herstellen und befindet sich offenbar in Gesprächen mit Aurora. Die Gespräche sollen weit fortgeschritten sein.
Offenbar Gespräche mit Aurora
Coca-Cola will Cannabis-Drinks herstellen
Die Gespräche laut Insidern seien "ziemlich weit fortgeschritten".
An alkoholische Getränke hat sich Softdrink-Riese Coca-Cola bereits herangewagt. Nun will der Konzern einem Medienbericht zufolge auch cannabishaltige Drinks entwickeln. Sie sollen gegen Schmerzen und Krämpfe wirken.
Coca-Cola hat offenbar Interesse am Einstieg in die Herstellung von cannabishaltigen Getränken. Dem kanadische Business-Sender "BNN Bloomberg" zufolge verhandelt der Konzern diesbezüglich mit Aurora, einem der größten kanadischen Cannabis-Hersteller. Die Nachricht versetzte Aurora-Anleger sogleich in einen Kaufrausch: Die Aktien stiegen an der Börse in Toronto um bis zu 22 Prozent auf 10,42 Dollar.
Coca-Cola und Aurora teilten in getrennten Erklärungen mit, man schaue sich die Entwicklung am wachsenden Markt von mit Marihuana versetzten Getränken genau an. Ansonsten kommentiere man aber keine Marktspekulationen. Auch "BNN Bloomberg" zufolge gibt es keine Garantie dafür, dass die Gespräche erfolgreich verlaufen. Die beiden Unternehmen werden demnach wahrscheinlich aber Drinks entwickeln, die bei Schmerzen, Entzündungen und Krämpfen wirken, meldete der Sender unter Berufung auf Insider. Die Gespräche seien "ziemlich weit fortgeschritten".
Bei den mit Marihuana versetzten Getränken geht es um den Wirkstoff Cannabidiol (CBD), der als nicht suchtfördernd oder berauschend gilt. Dem Deutschen Hanfverband zufolge gilt CBD zudem als relativ arm an Nebenwirkungen. Als Ausnahmemedikation bei schweren Erkrankungen kann Cannabis in Deutschland seit März letzten Jahres gegen Schmerzen verordnet werden. Aus der Hanfpflanze wird aber auch das "high" machende Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) gewonnen.
Kanada und einige US-Bundesstaaten haben Marihuana auch für nicht medizinische Zwecke als Genussmittel legalisiert. Nach dem US-Bundesrecht bleibt der Handel damit aber verboten, weshalb viele US-Konzerne vorsichtig sind.
Bisher haben sich nur Alkohol-Hersteller auf den Markt vorgewagt. So hat der Hersteller von Corona-Bier Constellation Brands mehr als vier Milliarden Dollar in Canopy Growth - ebenfalls aus Kanada - investiert, um auf Cannabis basierende Getränke zu produzieren. Analysten rechnen nun damit, dass auch der Cola-Rivale Pepsi an dem Markt interessiert sein dürfte.
