Aurora Cannabis Inc. (the “Company” or “Aurora”) (TSX-V:ACB) (OTCQX:ACBFF) (Frankfurt:21P; WKN:A1C4WM) and WeedMD Inc. (TSXV:WMD) are pleased to announce that the companies have entered into a strategic relationship whereby WeedMD will provide wholesale dried medical cannabis to Aurora, and Aurora will provide best in class patient education services for WeedMD through its cannabis counselling and outreach unit CanvasRx.

WeedMD’s commitment under the agreement is to wholesale product to Aurora for demand above and beyond WeedMD’s own patient requirements. Pursuant to the agreement, WeedMD has made an initial sale to Aurora out of inventoried product, while ensuring that its retained supply is such that current and future patient needs can be met.


Aurora, in turn, will assist WeedMD with its patient education and outreach program through the Company’s CanvasRx unit. This makes available to WeedMD expert knowledge and experience in patient counselling, outreach and interaction, accelerating WeedMD’s ability to engage with its growing customer base.

“This is a win-win relationship benefiting both companies,” said Terry Booth, Aurora CEO. “We are always looking to expand our product offering, both in terms of quantity for sale and new strains, but we will only do so if we are highly confident that the new products meet the industry-leading Aurora Standard. We have been following WeedMD closely since we first met with their team three years ago, and are impressed with their rigorous commitment to Good Production Practices. We therefore believe WeedMD’s products will make a strong addition to our product portfolio, and we look forward to building a deeper relationship as both companies continue to expand.”

Bruce Dawson-Scully, CEO of WeedMD, added, “This relationship represents a cost-effective opportunity to accelerate our commercial development, as we become part of the growing medical market and prepare for future adult consumer use. We are very excited to be entering into a strategic relationship with one of the world’s leading cannabis companies, and benefit from their brand recognition, as well as their counselling, and sales and marketing know-how. Finally, the collaboration with Aurora’s CanvasRx, which has been an extremely valuable resource for medical cannabis patients across the country, will help us generate an important presence in the market.”
