CHV, through Abba Medix Corp. (“Abba”) and Canada House Clinics Inc. (“CHC”), has gained significant traction in the Canadian medical cannabis market leveraging its heritage and focus on Veterans. Abba initiated its medical marketplace LP strategy during the summer of 2020 and has since grown medical revenues from $50K to $1M monthly. Abba now serves over 2,600 patients including over 1,600 Veterans. CHC continues its profitable growth now serving over 4,300 Veterans who are a significant driver to CHC’s overall patients purchasing over $30M of medical cannabis from Canadian Licensed Producers, including Abba, each year.
CHV, with the assistance of Montréal Cannabis Médical Inc. (“MTL Cannabis” or “MTL”), has completed Phase 1 of the IsoCanMed Inc. (“ICM”) facility retrofit and now grows using identical methodologies as MTL. With Abba now focusing on its medical marketplace, management has decided to lease out Abba’s cultivation space to Artisanal Cannabis Company Inc. (“Artisanal”), leveraging Abba’s cultivation space, Quality Assurance team, and provincial distribution licenses. Abba and Artisanal, a next generation grower centric cannabis company, have signed an agreement such that Artisanal can cultivate and bring its craft genetics to market using the Abba facility and licenses in exchange for consideration to cover Abba’s overhead as well as Abba’s participation in Artisanal’s sales through a royalty, while Abba concentrates on medical distribution and veteran customer care.
ICM completed the initial part of the facility’s retrofit on target and began populating its grow rooms in July. Since then, ICM has successfully harvested five crops totaling over 900kg of dried flower under the new growing methodologies implemented by MTL Cannabis. ICM’s standard operating procedures have been established and the production schedule at ICM has proceeded as planned with the yield from these initial harvests to be released for sale in the near term.
