RavenQuest Completes First Cannabis Shipment to Australia
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RavenQuest BioMed Inc. (CSE: RQB OTCQB: RVVQF Frankfurt: 1IT) (the “Company” or “RavenQuest”), one of Canada’s most innovative cannabis companies, announces it has successfully completed its first shipment of medical cannabis to Australia. RavenQuest cannabis was shipped to Medcan Australia (“Medcan”), a federally licensed Australian medical cannabis provider.
“On November 8, 2019, Medcan took delivery of a nominal supply of cannabis which originated from RavenQuest’s Edmonton facility, grown using RavenQuest’s Orbital Garden cannabis grow technology. While the size of the shipment is nominal, what is important is that we were able to execute the shipment to our Australian partners without any serious delays or snags in the process. During this test shipment, the process went very smoothly which we believe will allow us to quickly go to the next level with Australia, shipping larger quantities to our partner, Medcan,” stated George Robinson, CEO of RavenQuest.“For those unfamiliar with the Australian market, it is a burgeoning cannabis marketplace with a regulatory framework that resembles Canada’s medical marijuana laws circa 2001-2010. Pricing in Australia is very favourable for producers, and we look forward to shipping more of our high-quality, Orbital Garden-grown cannabis to our Australian friends,” Robinson continued.Medcan CEO, Craig Cochran, commented, “After receiving our first RavenQuest cannabis shipment, we can confirm that RavenQuest’s cannabis quality meets our high product standards, which is a testament to their precision-controlled indoor cultivation methods. Even more importantly, it allows us to provide high-quality cannabis to our patients.”Founded in 2016, Medcan has a singular vision to provide Australian patients with a high-quality, fair-priced cannabis product. With a vertically integrated model, Medcan is licenced under the Australian Office of Drug Control to cultivate, produce, manufacture, export and import high-quality medicinal cannabis products for both clinical trials and individual patient access throughout Australia.For more information, please access RavenQuest’s investor presentation, fact sheet and videos here.Follow RavenQuest:
