3) Avoids first-pass liver metabolism
4) Increases bio-absorption by 5-10X
The Company’s DehydraTECHâ„˘ technology is patent-protected for multiple APIs: Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, Nicotine and Fat soluble vitamins.

Today’s podcast features news announcements from Aphria Inc. trading on the TSX as APH and US OTC as APHQF, Emblem Corp. trading on the TSX-Venture as EMC, LIVEWELL CANADA INC. trading on the TSX-Venture as LVWL, Koios Beverage Corp. trading on the CSE as KBEV and the OTC as SNOVF and Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc., trading on the TSX-VENTURE as TBP and the OTCQB as TBPMF.
Aphria Inc. today announced that it completed its largest international shipment of cannabis oil to date to Australian medical life science company, Medlab Clinical Limited (“Medlab”). The shipment is part of the previously announced agreement between Aphria and Medlab in which Aphria produces and supplies high-yield cannabis extracts for Medlab to be used in a human trial to test the management of intractable pain in oncology patients – the first trial of its kind globally.
For the purposes of the clinical trial, Aphria has provided a high-CBD cannabis oil and a high-THC cannabis oil, both of which were designed specifically for Medlab. Once at Medlab, the products are then combined with Medlab’s patented medicine delivery system, NanoCelleâ„˘. Medlab’s clinical trial is posited to provide an effective and efficacious pain therapy targeted to advanced cancer pain, that rivals standard opioid use. The product formulation, manufacturing, and final product validation have met the TGO93 standard set by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (“TGA“) and permits have been approved by Health Canada.
Emblem Corp. announced today that it has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities in Natura Naturals Inc. (“Natura”) that it does not already own for $25 million in cash, $12.5 million in mortgage financing and 26,102,941 common shares of Emblem. Based on Emblem’s 45 day VWAP of $1.36, the implied transaction value is $76 million (inclusive of Natura shares already owned by Emblem). On completion of the Transaction, Emblem will further its aggressive approach to sales growth both domestically and internationally backed by robust supply from the Natura greenhouse.
Based in Leamington, Ontario, Natura operates a 662,000 sq ft licensed greenhouse that is currently undergoing a phased conversion and retrofit that is expected to bring up to 15,000 kg of annualized cannabis production online in 2018. Once completed in 2019, the facility is expected to bring total annualized cannabis production capacity to approximately 70,000 kg per year.
The entering into of the LOI follows Emblem’s recently announced $3 million equity investment in Natura and the entering into of a 3,000 kg per year supply agreement.
