VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlissCo Cannabis Corp. (FRA:GQ4B) (CSE:BLIS), (“BlissCo”) is pleased to announce that just days after news of legalization in Canada, the company is receiving a supply of premium dried cannabis from The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX-V:FIRE) this week.
This dried cannabis will enable BlissCo to apply for a sales amendment to its ACMPR license for the purpose of supplying its domestic and global ecosystem partners in nations where medical cannabis is federally legal.
“We are right on schedule with the submission of this application to receive an amendment to our ACMPR license to permit us to begin sales in late September,” said Damian Kettlewell, CEO of BlissCo Cannabis Corp. “The transition to significant revenue growth is the key milestone that we have been focused on as we have laid the groundwork for almost five years. We continue to make positive steps towards realizing our vision of creating an iconic Canadian cannabis brand.”
This cannabis will be packaged into five, ten and thirty gram containers which will allow BlissCo to, in mid-July, apply for an amendment to its ACMPR license to allow dried cannabis sales in domestic markets and apply for export permits for international markets.
Additionally, BlissCo’s Ecosystem has initiated the exploration of business development plans that will continue to develop the company’s global network of strategic alliances, ultimately supporting the company’s efforts to foster relationships in the international market.
"We have been watching the development of BlissCo for some time and have been impressed by Mr. Kettlewell's retail and distribution strength, industry connectivity and vision for the cannabis industry in British Columbia and Western Canada." said John Fowler, CEO of Supreme Cannabis. "Like Supreme, British Columbians have a passion for high-quality cannabis and we look forward to [continuing our work with] Mr. Kettlewell and his team at BlissCo."
