VANCOUVER, March 3, 2020 – World-Class Extractions Inc. (CSE: PUMP) (FRA:WCF) (OTCQB:WCEXF) (the “Company” or “World-Class”), an innovation-driven company that deploys and manages purpose-built cannabis and hemp extraction and processing centres, congratulates Canntab Therapeutics Limited (CSE: PILL.CN) (“Canntab”) on receiving its Cannabis Standard Processing, and Sales for Medical Purposes License.
This achievement represents a significant milestone in the relationship between Canntab and World-Class, allowing the parties to move forward with their previously announced agreement to deploy and operate a World-Class cannabis and hemp extraction and processing centre at Canntab’s licensed facility in Markham, Ontario.
World-Class and Canntab expect to generate revenue from the extraction and processing of cannabis and hemp supplied by Canntab and other third-parties using World-Class’s biomass extraction and processing systems. World-Class has commenced the deployment of the BOSS C02 Extraction Systems along with peripheral equipment to Canntab’s Markham facility. A BOSS System can process up to 200 pounds of biomass per day into high-potency cannabis and hemp concentrates. Canntab’s Markham facility is scalable and further BOSS systems are expected to be deployed as demand increases.
Rosy Mondin, CEO of World-Class, remarked, “Our team at World-Class wishes to congratulate Canntab on its achievement, and we look forward to supporting Canntab’s growth as we work to deploy and manage our processing systems and technology within the Canntab facility. Together, Canntab and World-Class are targeting a multi-billion dollar high-growth market characterized by considerable barriers to entry and increased outsourcing need. Our relationship represents a long-term opportunity, and both Canntab and World-Class expect to generate revenue from these operations in 2020.”
Jeff Renwick, Chief Executive Officer at Canntab stated, “The agreement with World-Class will give Canntab the ability to do extensive work on fractional distillation and isolation for our cutting-edge formulation with individual cannabinoids using chromatography, paving the way for problem-solving medications.”
