FSD Pharma Receives Cannabis Sales License from Health Canada

– New license positions FSD to serve the growing medicinal use markets –

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/FSDDF?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#FSDDFlt;/agt;–FSD Pharma Inc. (CSE:HUGE) (OTCQB:FSDDF) (FRA:0K9) (“FSD” or the
“Company”), announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary FV Pharma
Inc. has received its Sale for Medical Purposes license to sell cannabis
under the Cannabis Act (Canada). The license went into effect
on April 18, 2019.

The license allows the current FSD facility to supply and sell cannabis
products. The company anticipates receiving the amended sales license
that will include the sale of dried and fresh cannabis flower in the
near future.

Dr. Raza Bokhari, Executive Co-Chairman and CEO congratulated the FSD
Pharma team, shareholders and stakeholders on this much anticipated
achievement. Dr. Bokhari stated, “Our sales license is a key development
for FSD Pharma and a huge success and step forward for our Cobourg
Facility.”

“We have achieved this milestone thanks to the efforts of our dedicated
team. We are exceptionally proud of this achievement and look forward to
accelerating our efforts,” commented Dr. Sara May, President of FV
Pharma Inc.

Zeeshan Saeed, President and Founder, added, “The granting of our sales
license allows FSD to serve the growing medicinal use markets in Canada.
We intend to quickly scale up production at our current facility, while
continuing to build out the plant to add additional grow capacity. In
addition, our sales license opens the door for our
partner Canntab Therapeutics to commence sales of its suite of novel
cannabis oral dose delivery platforms, including CBD and THC capsules,
in Canada and global markets. We expect that this will provide an
immediate benefit to both parties, since FSD is entitled to a share
of Canntab’s revenue from sales as a result of the collaboration and
profit sharing agreement that we entered into this past fall.”

Anthony Durkacz, Founder and Executive Co-Chairman of the board speaking
on behalf of the FSD Pharma Board of Directors stated, “We are proud of
the leadership at FSD Pharma. This industry is transforming very rapidly
and the leadership has positioned the company well to generate top tier
revenue from our medicinal grade cannabis production.”
