Bonify Signs Cannabis Concentrate Program Agreement With MediPharm Labs Inc.

TORONTO, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MediPharm Labs Inc. ("MediPharm" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Cannabis Concentrate Program Agreement dated July 31, 2018 (the "Agreement") with 6779264 Manitoba Ltd. (O/A Bonify) ("Bonify"). Pursuant to the Agreement, the parties have entered into a commercial arrangement whereby Bonify will provide MediPharm with dried cannabis to use for the purposes of creating purity-assured cannabis oil (the "Program").

Subject to the bulk transfer approval of Health Canada, Bonify will ship dried cannabis to MediPharm which MediPharm will use to produce cannabis oil. The parties intend that under the Program, MediPharm may provide cannabis oil to Bonify or to other licensed producers of medical cannabis at the direction of Bonify. Alternatively, Bonify may release the cannabis extract for use by MediPharm. The Program will be established at no capital cost to Bonify; however, MediPharm will charge Bonify processing fees for the cannabis oil produced, and the revenue earned on sales of cannabis oil by MediPharm will be shared between MediPharm and Bonify.

Dalbir Bains, Bonify’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "This initiative with MediPharm is aligned with our mission to help make our patient and customer lives better by offering smoke free cannabis products. Bonify intends on being a leader in providing derivative cannabis products targeted at customers who are seeking alternatives to traditional pharmaceuticals and over the counter products. We look forward to working with MediPharm on this exciting initiative."

Pat McCutcheon, MediPharm’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re very excited to provide an elevated oil strategy to Manitoba’s elite cannabis cultivators. We’re thrilled to be linking provinces together through quality and innovation in product development.”

The Program will be for an initial term of one year.
