TORONTO, Jan. 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Pure Global Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V:PURE; OTC: PRCNF; FRA:1QS) (the "Company" or "Pure Global") an integrated, growth-oriented life sciences and consumer products cannabis company, through its subsidiary PureSinse Inc. ("PureSinse"), is excited to announce that Health Canada has issued PureSinse a Sales License under the Cannabis Act.
Eligible and pre-registered Canadian medical patients can soon select from two dozen premium cannabis products offered by PureSinse, via its newly launched eCommerce website at PureSinse.com. The Company is committed to supporting medical cannabis patients by emphasizing the quality of and access to the products they need. The Company anticipates growing to 70 SKUs (stock-keeping units) by mid-2019, including adding extracted oil products, and vape pens.
PureSinse continues to demonstrate commitment to the medical community by leading one of the largest real-world evidence-based clinical studies in conjunction with the Appletree Medical Group and one of the largest Clinical Research Organizations in the world. The clinical data, which will be collected from thousands of patients, will provide necessary data points for guidance in the therapeutic benefits of specific cannabis strains for commonly reported medical symptoms. This evidence will guide PureSinse's future pharmaceutical product and consumer product development plans and provide the medical community with published peer reviewed observational data on the efficacy of medical cannabis for a range of conditions.
As part of the Sales Licence, the Company can also sell products into the adult-legal consumer market through provincially licensed retailers, for which it is launching uniquely curated lines of consumer products tailored to specific market segments.
"This is a significant milestone for us and something we have been vigorously preparing for over the last several months," said Malay Panchal, CEO of Pure Global. "We feel the medical community has been hugely underserviced with poor patient and physician education, and product offerings, areas we hope to be trail blazers in and make a significant contribution to in 2019," added Mr. Panchal.
