About Cardiol Therapeutics

Cardiol Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDL) (TSX: CRDL) is a clinical-stage life sciences company focused on the research and clinical development of cannabidiol as an anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic therapy for the treatment of CVD. The Company's lead product candidate, CardiolRx™, is a pharmaceutically produced oral cannabidiol formulation that is being clinically developed for use in cardiovascular medicine. CardiolRx™ is currently being evaluated in a Phase II/III multi-national, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (the "LANCER" trial). LANCER is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CardiolRx™ as a cardioprotective therapy to reduce major cardiovascular and respiratory events in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 who have a prior history of, or risk factors for, CVD, and to investigate the influence CardiolRx™ has on key biomarkers associated with heart disease.

Cardiol has also received IND authorization from the FDA to conduct clinical studies to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CardiolRx™ in two orphan drug indications: (i) a Phase II multi-national, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in acute myocarditis, an important cause of acute and fulminant heart failure in young adults and the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in people less than 35 years of age; and (ii) a Phase II multicenter open-label pilot study in recurrent pericarditis (inflammation of the pericardium), which is associated with symptoms including debilitating chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue, and results in physical limitations, reduced quality of life, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations.

In addition, Cardiol is developing a subcutaneous formulation of cannabidiol for the treatment of inflammation and fibrosis associated with the development and progression of heart failure - a leading cause of death and hospitalization in the developed world, with associated healthcare costs in the U.S. exceeding $30 billion annually.

Hungry for Change: Investing in the Plant-based Food Industry

Animal agriculture is one of the top five sources of greenhouse gas emissions, much of which is directly attributable to livestock. It's been estimated by the United Nations, for instance, that the livestock sector represents approximately 14.5 percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions. Given the current international push for sustainability, this is a problem — and people are demanding a solution.

Driven by concerns about health, climate change and animal welfare, consumers are demandingethical and sustainable alternatives to meat, dairy, fish, and poultry. Nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of respondents to a survey on flexitarian diets would swap to plant-based alternatives because they're more ethical.

Unsurprisingly, this demand represents a considerable opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable investing. According to Bloomberg Intelligence, the global plant-based food market is expected to reach a total value of US$162 billion by 2030. A survey from the Food Institute shows that 79 percent of Americans from Generation Z choose meatless options at least once or twice a week.
