Sproutly Receives Processing License from Health Canada


VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sproutly Canada, Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FSE: 38G) (“Sproutly
or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that the Company’s
wholly-owned subsidiary, Toronto Herbal Remedies Inc. (“THR”), a
licensed producer under the Cannabis Act, has received a processing
licence from Health Canada effective March 29, 2019 (the “Processing
”). The Processing License allows THR to produce cannabis oil
and related products, and will also allow the Company to conduct certain
research and development activities, including the formulation of
proprietary beverage products.

“We are making steady progress towards achieving Sproutly’s mission of
delivering a safe and consistent whole plant experience from cannabis,
with a lead position in the beverage market. The Processing License
grant is a major milestone towards the path to commercializing our
cannabis beverages and other edible products. Specifically for cannabis
beverages, we can now continue to advance our formulation work at our
own production facility as we prepare for the legalization of cannabis
beverages later this year,” said Keith Dolo, CEO & Director. “Our plan
is to deliver cannabis beverages that will not only look and taste
great, but also where consumers will feel the cannabis effects within
five minutes and dissipate within 90 minutes. With Infuz2O’s
fast onset and fast offset characteristics the experience is more
similar to drinking a beer, compared to traditional cannabis oils that
have an unpredictable, multi-hour experience.”

“We have completed a substantial amount of formulation work to-date with
our proprietary, naturally produced, water soluble cannabinoids, which
we have named Infuz2O. With the grant of our Processing
License, we can extend formulation development work with the cannabis
strains which we plan on utilizing in our cannabis beverages in Canada.
It also allows us to perform the required shelf-stability and other
necessary testing to be ready for the legalization of cannabis beverages
later this year,” commented Dr. Arup Sen, Chief Science Officer &
Director. “In addition to the anticipated launch of our cannabis
beverages utilizing Infuz2O, we are equally excited about
commercializing products containing our Bio Natural Oils, which provide
substantially different characteristics than other oil-based products on
the market today. Our Bio Natural Oils deliver the full-spectrum of
cannabinoids and terpenes of the strain from which they are made, and
thus empower the consumers to enjoy the experience of their preferred
strain of choice in an edible form, ” he added.

About APP Technology

APP Technology is a proprietary process exclusively licensed from
Infusion Biosciences Inc. (“Infusion Biosciences Inc.”) for
certain jurisdictions. The technology is able to gently recover both the
water-soluble bioactive materials as well as the plant’s oil-based
materials and other phytochemicals present in the plant which include
beneficial terpenes, vitamins, micronutrients and other plant oils. The
technology uses a patent pending process, proprietary reagents and
trade-secrets to accomplish this. APP Technology produces two unique
finished ingredients from cannabis and hemp plants:

  • Infuz2O – A
    naturally water-soluble cannabis solution which fully dissolves in
    water and can be directly added in beverage formulations to deliver
    the effects of cannabis with a fast onset time of less than 5 minutes,
    clearing (offset) within 90 minutes; and,
  • Bio Natural Oil – Cannabinoid oils directly infused into
    natural oils for edibles or topical application while retaining strain
    specific characteristics.

The development of Infusion Biosciences’ APP technology and the creation
of its Infuz2O and Bio Natural Oil, is based on over 12 years
of R&D on the recovery of water soluble phytochemicals from medicinal
plants and over 25 years in discovery and development of biotechnology
and pharmaceutical drugs.
