Toronto, Ontario, October 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – North Bud Farms Inc. (CSE: NBUD) (“NORTHBUD” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide shareholders an update on our corporate activities.
Construction of Our Cannabis Production Facility in Low, Quebec:
NORTHBUD and its team have been hard at work finalizing some minor design changes to our proposed facility located on 95 acres of agricultural land in Low, Quebec. NORTHBUD has received a detailed timeline for construction from our builder, NGA Construction Inc., and is on schedule to have the facility completed and an evidence package submitted to Health Canada in Q1 2019. We are pleased to report the facility budget is on target.
All infrastructure implementation has been completed and physical facility construction will begin, October 17, 2018.
As previously disclosed in our prospectus, NORTHBUD, through its wholly-owned subsidiary GrowPros MMP Inc. which was acquired from Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. in February 2018, is pursuing a license under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). In this regard, NORTHBUD has engaged Cannabis Compliance Inc. to assist in the migration of the ACMPR application to the CLTS which goes into effect after the implementation of the Cannabis Act on October 17, 2018. NORTHBUD will be making amendments in order to take advantage of favourable changes that have been implemented under the Cannabis Act.
Key New Hires:
NORTHBUD is pleased to announce the hiring of Magda Farid who will serve as our head of Quality Assurance and Compliance. Ms. Farid previously served as head of quality assurance for HEXO Corp. (formerly known as The Hydropothecary Corporation), a licensed producer under the ACMPR, in addition to multiple roles as Quality Assurance Manager in the pharmaceutical industry with companies such as McKesson and Trillium Health Care Products Inc. Ms. Farid has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Ottawa with a double major in biochemistry and nutrition.
“NORTHBUD is very pleased to be able to bring on a quality assurance manager with experience in both the cannabis and pharmaceutical industries,” said Ryan Brown, CEO and Founder of North Bud Farms Inc.
