NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES TORONTO, April 29, 2019 — Canada House Wellness Group Inc. (CSE: CHV) (“Canada House” or the “Company”), a fully integrated medical cannabis company, announced today that it has signed a lease agreement for its licensed Cannabis Dispensary in Southeast Edmonton, Alberta and received a Major Development Permit to begin construction. Canada House’s first recreational dispensary will be conveniently located adjacent to the Company’s existing medical cannabis location. According to a recent report by the CBC, Alberta pot smokers are expected to spend about $940 million on legal weed by 2024, with the province becoming Canada’s second-largest market for cannabis behind Ontario. U.S.-based research firms BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research said in a new report Albertans spent about $216 million on medical and retail cannabis last year. The forecast predicts demand will more than quadruple in the next five years. By the end of February, there were 75 retail cannabis stores operating in Alberta, 24 of which are in Calgary. The province’s stores have combined to sell $33 million worth of legal marijuana since October 17, 2018.
“This is yet another positive step forward toward executing on our business plans and achieving our revenue and profit targets for fiscal 2020 and beyond,” said Michael Orrbrooke, Canada House’s newly appointed Chief Revenue Officer. “Conveniently located in Southeast Edmonton we look forward to serving the local community with an exceptional customer experience and a wide variety of Cannabis products and accessories available in the market,” added Orrbrooke. “A core philosophy of our business is delivering premium cannabis and quality care across all of our business lines,” added Canada House CEO Chris Churchill-Smith. “Our Edmonton dispensary provides us the opportunity to apply our expertise gained through Canada House Clinics, as a pioneer in cannabinoid therapy service offerings, in the recreational cannabis marketplace to offer premium products that are attuned to the specific desires of recreational consumers.”
