VICTORIA, British Columbia, Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (TSXV:EMH; OTCQX:EMHTF) (“Emerald”) announced today that Northern Vine Canada Inc. (Northern Vine), a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerald, successfully completed the export of cannabis oil to the United States on May 25 pursuant to an import permit from the federal U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The cannabidiol (CBD)-containing cannabis oil is expected to be used by a US biopharmaceutical company to develop its proprietary cannabinoid technology for medical research and development and for its manufacturing process for future clinical trials.

In addition, Northern Vine successfully imported isolated cannabigerol (CBG) from Spain on June 27 for medical research and development of plant-based therapies with unique cannabinoid profiles. Northern Vine also recently received cannabinoid oil imports for medical research and development from Netherlands and Colombia, and has been approved for cannabinoid oil imports from China.

Northern Vine is a Licensed Dealer (“LD”) under the provisions of the Canadian Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. An LD is permitted to carry out certain business activities that Emerald is not permitted to undertake as a Licensed Producer (“LP”) under Access to Cannabis for Medical Purpose Regulations (“ACMPR”), including the import/export of cannabis and cannabis oils as well as the manipulation, formulation, dosage form, strength or package size of cannabis, including mixtures with other additives, controlled substances, and non-controlled substances, expanding possible research and product innovation opportunities for Emerald.

“We are one of the few companies with DEA approval in the United States allowing us to support  the development of novel cannabis-based medical-use drugs.  This is representative of our capabilities focused on international clinical development,” said Chris Wagner, CEO of Emerald. “Importing unique isolates from sophisticated international producers for our own research and development  is also aligned with our focus of driving the development of novel cannabis-based products to improve lives around the world.”
