“We are very excited about the growth in revenue company wide, which is a result of strong interest in our new format and SKU offerings, particularly in Quebec. We are continuing to stay disciplined on our core strategy of servicing the medical market with a laser focus on military veterans as well as continuing to cement our position as a leading LP in the Quebec adult use market,” comments Chris Churchill-Smith, CEO of Canada House. “We have made recent investments in our customer care team at Abba in order to maintain our excellent medical customer service standard to align with our growing medical patient base and we continue to aggressively pursue commercialization efforts of new and novel SKUs to the “Buy Local” Quebec market and other provinces.”
Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company announced:
• On February 18, 2021, a Cannabis 2.0 distribution agreement with Pure Extracts Technologies Corp. (CSE: PULL) (OTC: PRXTF) (XFRA: A2QJAJ) (“Pure Extracts”), a plant-based extraction company focused on cannabis, hemp, functional mushrooms and the rapidly emerging psychedelic sector. Under the terms of the distribution agreement, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Abba Medix Corp. (“Abba”), will distribute Pure Extracts’ line of concentrate products through its established provincial distribution channels.
• On February 16, 2021 that Abba had surpassed 650 active medical patient registrations, 400 of which are military Veterans.

Both the Company’s clinic division, Canada House Clinics (“CHC”), and Abba are oriented to serving the Veteran market in Canada, including providing services and support beyond medical cannabis. CHC also continues to see growth in its Veteran patient base, with recent initiatives accelerating growth to exceed 3,100 active Veteran medical registrations across Canada.
