Tweed Launches Community Engagement Centres and Acquires Interest in Cannabis Extracts Research Company

SMITHS FALLS, ON , Sept. 04, 2015 /CNW/ - Tweed Marijuana Inc., ("Tweed" or the "Company") (TWD.V) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire MedCannAccess ("MCA") by way of amalgamation in an all-equity transaction that aims to bring the Company's customer experience to new levels.

Through the integration of MCA, Tweed and its subsidiaries will be able to offer in-person client services through MCA's existing network of community engagement centres in the key market of Ontario , making Tweed the first Licensed Producer in Canada to offer in-person services in the medical marijuana industry.

"Tweed has always placed a heavy emphasis on customer service. Until today that meant people could call us and talk to a Customer Care associate or find us on social media to learn more about our products and services," said Bruce Linton , Chairman and CEO of the Company.  "Now they can walk into a physical location and get that same level of service, face to face."

Existing MCA centres in Guelph , Etobicoke , and Hamilton will offer unmatched support to local physicians and the broader healthcare community, while providing patients with consultation and registration services at absolutely no cost.

"The MCA team is comprised of individuals who have been integrated into their local cannabis and medical communities for years," said MCA's VP of Business Development, Rade Kovacevic. "Working with Tweed, we can enhance support for our patients locally and engage at the community level like never before."

Through the acquisition of MCA, Tweed will also acquire a 33% stake in CannScience Innovations Inc. ("CannScience"), a drug development company based out of the MaRS Centre in Toronto working collaboratively with the University Health Network.  CannScience conducts in-depth extracts research, with the ultimate goal of delivering standardized metered dosing in a range of alternate delivery methods, a priority for the Company as the emerging cannabis extract market evolves. CannScience's lead product in development incorporates the Generex Biotechnology Corporation proprietary RapidMist™ drug delivery technology, which is specially engineered to propel metered doses into the buccal cavity where the active pharmaceutical ingredient is absorbed, providing patients with a safe, simple, and easy way to achieve rapid on-set with no deposit in the lungs.

Finally, the acquisition will see Tweed obtain a library of fully phenotyped, award-winning, proprietary genetics produced by Humber Valley Seeds.  These unique genetics will provide Tweed with a more diverse product offering and open up new opportunities for breeding and product development.

Terms of the all equity deal to acquire MCA include: $1,500,000 in Tweed shares issued immediately upon closing of the transaction and $4,240,000 in Tweed shares contingent upon meeting certain milestones including expansion of in-person client services milestones, key personnel deliverables, CannScience meeting certain research-related milestones, and achieving international expansion objectives.

With an ever-increasing platform for delivering a variety of product lines across a number of growing platforms, Tweed is well positioned to service the needs of patients across Canada . The addition of MCA to the Tweed team will further enhance the Company's accessibility to patients and doctors, while its equity stake in its new partner CannScience will differentiate the company as the cannabis oil market develops.

Here's to Better Future Growth.
