NetworkNewsWire Announces Publication on Anticipated Demand as Canada Prepares for Legalization of Recreational Marijuana

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2017) - NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring ABcann Global Corp. (OTCQB: ABCCF) (TSX VENTURE: ABCN), a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis and one of the earliest licensed Canadian medical marijuana producers.

The publication, titled, "Canadian Licensed Producers Prepare for Recreational Cannabis Legalization, Expect Significant Growth in Demand," highlights the anticipated surge in demand for cannabis products when recreational marijuana becomes legal in Canada mid-2018, and the responsibilities licensed growers have in the booming industry.

"...the Canadian government has relaxed its licensing approval process, and established growers such as ABcann Global Corp. (OTCQB: ABCCF) (TSX.V: ABCN) have a head start. Focused on producing premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis, ABcann (ABCCF Profile) has developed a proprietary computerized system to control marijuana growing, which enables it to replicate the cultivation environment of any geographical location in the world. This level of control guarantees a consistent product of superior quality that is repeatable from batch to batch, something that is demanded by both physicians and patients. The company's innovative system uses controlled lighting, organic fertilizers and soil media to deliver natural, safe products at high yields. Through strict environmental control of temperature, humidity and water, ABcann is able to eliminate the need for pesticides, which can taint supply.

"Cultivation requires capital, and with $40 million in the bank, ABcann is especially well-positioned to increase its production capabilities. A hefty portion of this cash is from a $30 million investment with Cannabis Wheaton (OTCQB: CBWTF) (TSX VENTURE: CBW) to fund the construction of additional ABcann production facilities. ABcann currently operates a licensed 14,500-square-foot Vanluven facility located in Napanee, Ontario, and the company is gearing up to break ground on its new 150,000-square-foot Kimmet facility in Napanee. Even with the new facility, ABcann has plenty of wiggle room, as it also owns 65 acres of land for future development with full infrastructure already in place, which will be able to accommodate another growing facility estimated at 1.2 million square feet."

About ABcann Global Corporation

ABcann was one of the first companies to obtain a production license under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, which it received on March 21, 2014. It obtained a sales license on December 31, 2015. ABcann's flagship facility, in Napanee, Ontario, contains proprietary plant-growing technology, including environmentally-controlled chambers capable of monitoring and regulating all variables in the growing process. This approach and the systems in place allow ABcann to produce organically grown and pesticide-free, high-yielding plants, which, in turn, can generate high-quality products that are consistent from batch to batch. ABcann is able to control environmental and nutrient demands, tailor-made for a particular strain of cannabis, without the variation that is typical when producing large quantities in less-controlled, larger rooms and greenhouse-type structures. ABcann's modular approach to systems technology eliminates scale-up risk and allows ABcann to locate anywhere in the world and maintain consistency and quality of product.
