TORONTO, July 9, 2018 /CNW/ - Aleafia Health Inc. (TSXV: ALEF) (OTCQX: ALEAF) ("Aleafia") or (the "Company"), one of Canada's leading, vertically integrated medical cannabis companies with a unique patient-focused, healthcare solution, is pleased to provide an update further to the press release dated July 6, 2018, on the acquisition of the 160,000 square foot cultivation facility located in Grimsby, Ontario.
Aleafia is pleased to report that the zoning variance required by Aleafia for the Grimsby facility was accepted and passed late Friday afternoon. As previously disclosed, the Company expects to close on the transaction in late July, after completion of the 20 day appeal process.
Since executing the agreement to acquire the facility, Aleafia has been meticulously working through the due diligence process and has found that the facility is expected to provide even more value from a cultivation perspective than initially anticipated.
Working with well respected engineers and contractors in the cannabis cultivation space, Aleafia has found that the facility, in its current state, is expected to be up and running sooner than anticipated and under the budget originally developed.
"Having only been working with the Aleafia team a very short time, I am pleased to find that as I dig deeper into the inner workings of the company, the foundation for growth is unlimited." said Geoff Benic, CEO. "Getting intimately familiar with the new facility has given me comfort in our ability to continue to grow our company both organically and by way of additional acquisitions."
At the meeting late Friday afternoon, Mr. Benic addressed the Grimsby town council, thanked them for their support and reiterated Aleafia's continued mission to be leading corporate citizens while supporting the local economy.
