April 3, 2019 – SOL Global Investments Corp. (“SOL Global” or the “Company“) (CSE: SOL) (OTCQB: SOLCF) (Frankfurt: 9SB) is pleased to announce that 3 Boys Farms, LLC (“3 Boys Farm“), which owns and operates one of the fourteen medical marijuana treatment center licenses in Florida, has received approval from the State of Florida’s Department of Health, Office of Medical Marijuana Use (“OMMU“) to begin processing and dispensing cannabis products at its new state-of-the-art extraction and processing facility in Indiantown, Florida. SOL Global is in the process of acquiring 3 Boys Farms through its previously announced acquisition of CannCure Investments Inc. (“Canncure“) pursuant to a binding share purchase agreement. Closing of the acquisition is expected to occur within the next week and remains subject to a number of closing conditions including receipt of all necessary corporate approvals, however SOL Global has already been approved to acquire and own Canncure and 3 Boys Farms by the OMMU.
Accordingly, 3 Boys Farms has dispensed its first approved cannabis product – a 300mg low-THC cannabis vaporizer pen – to its first qualified patient in Florida. The OMMU has authorized 3 Boys Farms to dispense said vaporizer pen products via delivery to qualified patients throughout the state, and the first delivery to a qualified patient was made on April 1, 2019.
3 Boys Farms has also sought approval from the OMMU to begin dispensing its other premium cannabis flower products to Florida’s patients, including its “Cathy’s Choice” flower line. “Cathy’s Choice” flower was developed in part by (and is named in honor of) Parrish, Florida resident Catherine Jordan, the renowned medical cannabis activist who was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 1986 and became among the most dedicated and outspoken advocates both in Florida and throughout the country for patients wishing to access medical cannabis. 3 Boys Farms holds the exclusive right via a binding licensing agreement to cultivate and dispense “Cathy’s Choice” flower.
Concurrent with this announcement, SOL Global is pleased to announce that 3 Boys Farm’s brand new, state-of-the-art GMP-certified processing and extraction facility in Indiantown, Florida has commenced full operations. 3 Boys Farm’s processing facility is part of a newly designed 33-acre site in Indiantown that will also house a 50,000 square-foot greenhouse and a 64,000 square-foot indoor cultivation, processing, and manufacturing facility. The site is strategically located less than 90 miles from South Florida, which is poised to become one of the largest cannabis markets in the state. The commencement of operations in the new greenhouse or indoor cultivation, processing and manufacturing facility remains subject to the receipt of all required governmental approvals from the Florida Department of Health, Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
3 Boys Farm’s current approved cultivation facility in Ruskin, Florida produces approximately 350 pounds of dried cannabis flower product per month.
