Aurora Launches Same-Day Medical Marijuana Delivery in Calgary

Service Will Expand to Edmonton and Red Deer in June

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Aurora Cannabis Inc. (CSE:ACB)(FRANKFURT:21P)(OTCQB:ACBFF)(WKN:A1C4WM) ("Aurora" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that the Company has launched same-day delivery of medical cannabis orders to registered customers in Calgary and surrounding communities, an area encompassing a population of 1.2 million people.

Effective immediately, medical cannabis patients who are registered with Aurora can now order products Monday to Friday by noon Mountain Time (MT), and have their order delivered by or before 8:00 pm MT the same day. This service is offered to patients in the City of Calgary, as well as Airdrie, High River, Okotoks, Strathmore and Cochrane, and comes at no cost to Aurora customers. In June 2016, Aurora will extend same-day delivery to Edmonton and surrounding municipalities including Nisku, Sherwood Park, St. Albert, Spruce Grove and Fort Saskatchewan, as well as Red Deer.

Launching the same-day delivery service required Aurora's Information Technology team to develop and build customized software - unique to Aurora - that integrates with the Company's existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, to ensure seamless order processing, inventory management, and secure delivery protocols.

"We are very proud to bring this innovative commitment to our customers, and by next month we will be able to offer same-day delivery to an area covering the majority of the population of Alberta," said Neil Belot, Chief Brand Officer. "Our objective has always been to provide the best client care in the industry, ensuring patients have fast, hassle-free access to a broad range of the highest quality cannabis products. This is yet another manifestation of the Aurora Standard, our promise to drive innovation and continuously enhance the experience of our customers."
