TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 11, 2016) - PharmaCan Capital Corp., doing business as Cronos Group (TSX VENTURE: MJN) ("Cronos Group" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Peace Naturals Project Inc. ("Peace"), has shipped its first export of premium medicinal marijuana to Germany.
"This export marks an important milestone in Cronos Group's strategic global expansion and the beginning of a long, fruitful relationship between Peace and Pedanios GmbH ("Pedanios")," said Mike Gorenstein, Cronos Group's CEO. "We're passionate about providing top quality medicine to patients and are excited that, together with Pedanios, we will be able to deliver on our shared vision of compassionate care."
"With cannabis being approved for distribution in Germany and the forthcoming legislative changes in Germany to classify marijuana as a prescribable narcotic medicine, we believe that the need for product will grow fast and strong," said Patrick Hoffmann, Managing Director of Pedanios. "With German regulation only allowing distribution but not production within Germany, Pedanios is pleased to have found a high quality supply of cannabis from the Peace Naturals Project. This partnership enables us to introduce premium cannabinoid profiles to German patients."
"With the approval of Health Canada and German regulators, we are now able to help make German lives a little bit better," said Jeff Jacobson, Vice President of Corporate Operations at Peace. "We will continue to work tirelessly with Pedanios so that German patients have access to the same quality medicine that we deliver to our patients in Canada."
