Hiku’s Licensed Cannabis Producer Receives Notification of Pre-Sales Inspection
February 5th, 2018
Hiku Brands Company Ltd. (“Hiku” or the “Company”) (CSE: Hiku), Canada’s first vertically-integrated cannabis brand house, is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary DOJA Cannabis Ltd. (“DOJA”), a licensed cannabis producer under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the “ACMPR”), received notification from Health Canada that the company’s pre-sale inspection has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 13, 2018. The Pre-Sales License Inspection is the last step prior to the issuance of a Sales License under the ACMPR.
“As there are currently only 26 independent companies with cannabis sales licenses under the ACMPR in Canada, receiving confirmation of our Pre-Sales License Inspection from Health Canada is a major milestone for Hiku. I’m extremely proud of our cultivation team, the dedication to their craft shows in the very high-quality flower being produced at our licensed facility. Our team’s ability to execute has allowed us to advance to the Pre-Sales License Inspection ahead of schedule and faster than our peers. We look forward to the day when we can sell DOJA-branded cannabis to our valued customers and growing list of pre-registered patients.” said Alan Gertner, CEO of Hiku.
Hiku is focused on handcrafted cannabis production, immersive retail experiences, and building a portfolio of iconic, engaging cannabis lifestyle brands. Hiku is differentiated as the only Canadian craft cannabis producer with a significant national retail footprint and a growing brand house including premium cannabis lifestyle brands DOJA, Tokyo Smoke, and Van der Pop.
Hiku’s wholly owned subsidiary, DOJA Cannabis Ltd., is a federally licensed producer pursuant to the ACMPR, owning two production facilities in the heart of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. The company operates a network of retail stores selling coffee, clothing and curated accessories, across British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
Hiku has entered into supply partnerships with Aphria Inc. (“Aphria”) (TSX: APH) (OTCQB: APHQF) and WeedMD Inc. (TSXV: WMD) (“WeedMD”) to ensure Hiku’s brands will be able to scale in 2018 and beyond.
