LACHUTE, Quebec, July, 29th 2020 — Cannabista is pleased to announce the acquisition of new facilities formerly owned by Lyo-San Inc.

The acquisition of this new building, representing a total area of 40,000 square feet, is very good news for the company and another asset that will support its growth as well as its cannabis processing activities in accordance with specific pharmaceutical standards. Furthermore, the surrounding land representing a total area of 600,000 square feet will certainly allow the company to expand its activities in the future. On phase 1, the company will be able to support annually an extraction, drying and refining capacity of over 100 tons of biomass.

Since the building is already HACCP and FSSC2200 certified, this will simplify the granting of the GMP and EU-GMP certification and allow the company to reach the highest standards required by the pharmaceutical industry. The building also includes two fully equipped laboratories that will be used for research and to develop new patented products.

By acquiring these new facilities, Cannabista will benefit from state-of-the-art equipments certified for the food industry and that can be adapted to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical sector.

Finally, its proximity to an international airport represents an important strategic and logistical advantage to market the products across borders.
