Key Milestones During Q3 2022
Glacial Gold™ Anytime 1:1 Glacial Fresh Mint and Distilled 30:30 Oil launched in the Ontario Cannabis Store (“OCS”) and are now available at retail stores across Ontario and online at www.OCS.ca.
Nextleaf announced its expansion into the “Capsules” category, with Glacial Gold™ THC softgels. Product expected to launch in B.C. retail stores this fall.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office granted the Company its 18th issued U.S. patent.
Nextleaf announced a strategic agreement (the “Agreement”) with Hempcrete Natural Building Ltd. (“Hempcrete Natural”), an international construction company creating carbon neutral communities through sustainable, renewable, and stronger buildings. The Agreement permits Hempcrete Natural, on a non-exclusive basis, to commercialize certain Nextleaf intellectual property, specifically, a U.S. patent related to hemp biomass processing.
The Company announced it produced D9-tetrahydrocannabinol acetate (D9-THC-OAc, delta-9-THC-OAc, THC-OAc), colloquially referred to as THC-O (“THC-O”) under its Health Canada Research Licence in anticipation of commercialization. Nextleaf has validated its manufacturing process of THC-O through third-party analytical testing. The Company is of the understanding that THC-O is not subject to excise tax as it does not meet the definition of “Total THC” as defined under the Excise Act 2001, which is aligned with the definition of the same in the Cannabis Act.
Key Milestones Subsequent to Q3 2022
Nextleaf announced the launch of a new one-gram, Glacial Gold™ CBD 3:1 Vape in the Company’s signature berry lemonade flavour. The new CBD 3:1 Vape will build off the success of the Glacial Gold™ Session THC Vape and Anytime 1:1 Vape by offering an additional tier of potency at the accessible price point and quality the legacy brand is known for.
In July, the Company announced it had validated its technology to produce THC-free Broad Spectrum CBD distillate (“THC-Free CBD”) from industrial hemp feedstock.
Nextleaf announced the launch of its first THC-Free CBD product. Glacial Gold™ Rise & Shine CBD Drops is a broad-spectrum alternative to CBD isolates, perfect to start the day without the risk of intoxication. Nextleaf expects Glacial Gold™ Rise & Shine CBD Drops to be available first in adult-use channels in British Columbia and nationally through medical cannabis distribution partners in the fall.
The consolidated financial statements of the Company for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and accompanying MD&A have been filed with the securities regulators and are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Company’s issuer profile.
