Experion Receives License to Extract and Produce Cannabis Oil
October 9, 2018 — Viridium Pacific Group Ltd. (“Viridium” or the “Company”) (TSXV: VIR) (OTCPink: VIRFF) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Experion Biotechnologies Inc. (“Experion”), has received an amended license from Health Canada allowing for the production and possession of cannabis oil. The license permits Experion to purchase oils, create oils through the extraction process, conduct formulations, and destroy and store finished goods.
This licensing achievement is the key first step for Experion to participate in the cannabis derivatives market, which currently involves products such as basic oils and dosed gel capsules for medical purposes, and future recreational products, including edibles, distillates for vaporizer devices, infused beverages, and non-ingested products, such as topical creams and lotions.
Experion will start to produce cannabis oil within its current facility located in Mission, British Columbia and expects to become production capable with an oil processing sales license under the Cannabis Act in early 2019, in time for the expected legalization of edibles and infused beverages for the adult use market in Canada.
Mr. Jarrett Malnarich, Viridium CEO, commented, “We believe that a great deal of the next generation of cannabis products will be designed around cannabis extracts. Experion has achieved another important licensing milestone with the extraction amendment, which brings our company another step closer to our vision of building a leading, integrated cannabis company, operating across Canadian and international markets.”
Viridium Pacific Group Ltd. is the parent company of operating subsidiaries involved in horticultural production, (Experion Biotechologies Inc.) property development (Fish Trap Ventures Ltd.), and human resource management (Stave Lake Services Ltd.) Experion Biotechnologies Inc., is a Health Canada licensed producer of cannabis, which operates in an 8,300 square-foot indoor facility outside of Mission, BC.
