"The commitment by Supreme's CEO John Fowler to 'premium and ultra premium cannabis' aligns with BlissCo's values of excellence and sustainability. Supreme's medical cannabis is receiving positive reviews from ACMPR patients and we are confident that BlissCo's future patients will embrace these premium products," says BlissCo's CEO, Damian Kettlewell.
- Supreme has completed a $3,000,000 strategic equity investment in BlissCo - giving Supreme a 10% equity ownership in the Company. This investment was part of the concurrent private placement completed at the time of listing in the amount of $5,605,213.
- Supreme's wholly owned subsidiary 8528934 Canada Ltd. o/a 7ACRES has entered into a two year definitive supply agreement (the "Supply Agreement") with BlissCo. 7ACRES will supply BlissCo with a minimum of 1,000 kilograms of premium quality dried cannabis on a take-or-pay basis over a twelve-month period starting July 1, 2018.
Further information regarding the Company is set forth in the Company's listing statement ("Listing Statement"). A copy of the Listing Statement is available under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.
BlissCo is constructing an urban Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation (ACMPR) cultivation facility with a focus on being a high-volume packager, processor and distributor of medical cannabis and recreational cannabis when it is legal in Canada, which is currently anticipated to be the summer of 2018. It took ownership of its 12,600 sq. ft. industrial facility in Langley, British Columbia in Q3 2017 and considering the May 2017 changes Health Canada announced to the licensing process BlissCo is confident that its license will be earned shortly after completing construction in March 2018.
With an ACMPR cultivation and then a sales license BlissCo will grow and sell dried cannabis and cannabis oil to approved medical patients through its online portal and service excellence call centre. BlissCo will focus on high volume sales opportunities in the legal cannabis market when individual distribution models are established by Canadian provinces and territories.
