Invictus MD Provides an Update on Harvest by Acreage Pharms Ltd.
PRESS RELEASE INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP. (“Invictus MD” or the “Company”) (TSXV: IMH; OTC: IVITF; FRA: 8IS) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Acreage Pharms Ltd. (“Acreage Pharms”), a licensed producer under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”), completed its first two successful harvests earlier this month. Acreage Pharms, utilizing its pesticide free growing systems, anticipates two harvests to take place the first week of September.
Trevor Dixon, CEO of Acreage Pharms commented “The yields from both of the first two harvests exceeded expectations. The additional two harvests in the first week of September will utilize the entire grow space which will maximize yields and generate sufficient data to determine anticipated annual production rates. Acreage Pharms will be in a position to receive the license to sell once the QA team has analyzed the results of the third-party lab tests. This will be a significant milestone for Acreage Pharms.”
The initial harvests in this purpose built, state-of-the-art production facility along with the highly capable, cultivation team that uses Good Production Practices, has resulted in high quality, non-irradiated medical cannabis.
