OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 3, 2016) - GrowPros Cannabis Ventures Inc. ("GrowPros" or the "Company") (CSE:GCI) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a multi-dimensional joint venture agreement with Canadian Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations ("MMPR") license holder Delta 9 Bio Tech ("Delta 9") located in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
As per the terms of the agreement, Delta 9 and GrowPros will provide mutual consultation services including, but not limited to, the collaboration on the operations of Delta 9's expanding production location in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and GrowPros' proposed production facility located in Low, Quebec.
"After discussion with multiple licensed producers under the MMPR, I am extremely happy to be moving forward with Delta 9 as our strategic partner. The Delta 9 management has displayed a like-minded approach to patient services evident by their continued commitment to low cost operations and pricing. We have identified many areas where Delta 9's two plus years as a fully licensed producer will benefit GrowPros moving forward", stated Ryan Brown, GrowPros Chief Executive Officer.
"Delta 9 is excited to begin collaboration with GrowPros. We see this as a positive step towards expanding our client base and production footprint into eastern Canada with a strong focus on Quebec. We have identified areas in both production and customer service where the GrowPros' team will be able to provide significant value to the Delta 9's operations as we strive to provide high quality low cost medicinal cannabis to Canadians under the MMPR", stated John Arbuthnot, Delta 9s Vice President and Operations Officer.
The companies expect to enter into a definitive agreement on or before March 15th, 2016 and will then provide a more detailed outline.
