Experion Partners with Leading Hemp Supplier to Secure Access to Hemp-based CBD
VANCOUVER, BC September 17, 2019 (FSCwire) Experion Holdings Ltd. (TSXV: EXP) (OTCQB: EXPFF) (FRANKFURT: MB31), formerly Viridium Pacific Group Ltd today announced that Experion Holdings Ltd. (“Experion” or “the Company’’), entered into a non-binding term sheet (the ‘’Term Sheet’’) with True North Cannabis Corp. (‘’True North’’), a Canadian hemp harvest service provider with a core focus on facilitating the supply of bulk, extract-ready, pre-concentrated, tested high potency hemp-based CBD. The Term Sheet contemplates guaranteed access to top quality CBD Biomass that is explicitly processed and manufactured ready for extracting high quality CBD oils for value-added products. Experion will also make an equity investment in True North.
Mr. Jay Garnett, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are excited to partner with an emerging leader in hemp aggregation in the CBD extraction space. Partnering with True North provides Experion with access to low-cost, high-quality, extract-ready hemp material for processing. We believe that Experion will be able to leverage hemp-derived CBD products as a critical entrant into the emerging US and International markets as hemp-derived CBD products become more widely accepted.
The Term Sheet contemplates that Experion will receive a right of first refusal on True North’s premium hemp-based CBD Biomass. To start, Experion will have access to 6,000 kilograms of high-potency hemp-based CBD Biomass for the 2019 harvest season and at least 6,000 kilograms for every year going forward. The terms of a supply agreement, if executed by Experion and True North, may differ from those outlined in this press release.
Mr. Jay Garnett further commented, “As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, consumers will look to different forms of cannabis, a trend we are already witnessing, and we believe CBD from Hemp will form the basis of an expanding category. Our partnership with True North will enable Experion to aggregate up to 6,000 kilograms of high-potency hemp-based CBD Biomass which is a highly economical extraction model for us starting in 2019. Furthermore, it allows us to adjust our capacity needs each year without being beholden to a specific number of kilograms. Finally, we also believe that in order to remain competitive, it is important to have strategic partners specializing in outdoor grow. Our arrangement with True North provides excellent flexibility at a low-cost, and the ability to produce desired products for our customers and revenue for our shareholders.”
