First Licenced Producer to bring innovative vaporizing technology to Canada
MARKHAM, ON, July 17, 2017 /CNW/ - MedReleaf Corp. (TSX: LEAF), North America's first and only ISO 9001 and ICH-GMP certified producer of cannabis-based pharmaceutical products, today announced a multi-year licensing and distribution agreement with Massachusetts-based CannaKorp Inc. ("CannaKorp"), makers of the world's first single-use, pod-based cannabis vaporizing system, the CannaCloud™.
The CannaCloud is a pod-based cannabis vaporizing system that uses precisely measured, sealed and tested CannaCloud Pods ("cPods") containing dried, ground cannabis flower that will be produced and packaged by MedReleaf in Canada. The CannaCloud gives cannabis users the predictability and assurance to know what they are inhaling every time, without the hassle of grinding, measuring, and packing traditional vaporization consumption devices.
"We are proud to partner with technology leaders like CannaKorp to be the first licensed producer in Canada to offer this innovative cannabis vapor delivery system", said Neil Closner, Chief Executive Officer of MedReleaf. "For those medical cannabis patients who prefer inhalation, CannaCloud presents a proven method of delivery with unique bioavailability benefits and avoids the health concerns associated with the combustion of cannabis. This agreement underscores MedReleaf's uniqueness in the marketplace and commitment to a patient-centric business model; providing a consistent, high quality, and healthy experience for our patients."
The CannaCloud vaporizer and the CannaCloud Pods - produced exclusively by MedReleaf and offered in a variety of unique strains and blends - will be available to patients on their online store pending regulatory approval. As part of the agreement, MedReleaf will fill, package, and distribute cPods.
"We carefully select our partners who share our vision and high standards so we are able to deliver patients an easy to use, predictable, and overall great experience," stated James Winokur, CannaKorp CEO and Co-Founder. "With their tremendous attention to quality assurance, MedReleaf represents exactly the kind of partner we've dreamed of to bring the first CannaKorp products to the Canadian market."
