NAPANEE, ON, Jan. 23, 2020 /CNW/ – VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSXV: VIVO, OTCQX: VVCIF) (“VIVO” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce its common shares (the “Common Shares“) will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX“) effective as of market open on January 24, 2020, under the current trading symbol of VIVO.

“We expect that by the end of Q1 2020, our cannabis 2.0 products will be available for sale in seven provinces, which is a significant achievement considering the recent opening of the market,” Mr. Fishman continued. “We are proud of our suite of 2.0 products and look forward to our customers having the opportunity to experience them for themselves.”
