Emblem launches new line of Oil Capsules

Capsules are latest addition to the Company’s growing line of innovative medical cannabis products

TORONTO, Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emblem Corp. (TSXV: EMC, OTCQX: EMMBF) (“Emblem” or the “Company”), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Emblem Cannabis Corporation, today announced the launch of a new line of 10mg Emblem Oil Capsules, providing its growing list of 6,000+ patients with a pre-dosed treatment format. This convenient capsule formulation is designed to help patients better manage their treatment through precise dosing of their cannabis medication.

“Patient-focused treatment options are key drivers of Emblem’s innovation pipeline. As a patient-first provider, we’re continuing to develop products that meet our patients’ needs now and into the future,” said Nick Dean, CEO, Emblem Corp. “Accessing a variety of distribution channels is also a critical factor in our business strategy, and we are pleased to offer our medical cannabis products direct to patients through www.emblemcannabis.com, and soon through our supply agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart, which recently received its Federal Medical Sales License.”

“Patients want access to medical cannabis in formats that are discreet and easy-to-use, with established dosing,” added Wayne Kreppner, President of Medical, Emblem Corp. “The precision found in Emblem’s Oil Capsules addresses this and allows patients to easily track their medication and adjust as needed, while giving healthcare professionals another mode of administration that resembles traditional medications.”

The 10mg Emblem Oil Capsules offer a consistent patient experience formulated with three chemovar specific formats - High THC (10mg THC per capsule), High CBD (10 mg CBD per capsule) and Balanced (6mg THC/10 mg CBD per capsule). The capsules are odorless, flavourless and vegan, and suitable for patients already established on a cannabis oil dosage of 10mg or more. Patients can expect the same high quality in the Emblem Oil Capsules as found in the rest of Emblem's line of oil products, which includes Atmosphere oral dose-metered sprays and Emblem Oils.

Emblem plans to introduce additional dosage strengths of its oil capsules in the coming months to further address the medical needs of new patients or those wishing to titrate their dosage.
