Cannabis Wheaton Income (TSXV:CBW) announced it closed the acquisition of all shares of the company RockGarden Medicinals.
As quoted in the press release:
The Acquisition furthers the Company’s streaming platform strategy by providing the Company additional resources and regulatory tools to help accelerate Wheaton Licensing Program participants’ pathway to licensing under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the “ACMPR“).
Located in Carleton Place, Ontario, RockGarden is a privately owned licensed producer of cannabis pursuant to the ACMPR. On August 25, 2017 RockGarden was granted a cultivation license (the “License“).
Hugo Alves, President of Wheaton Income commented, “When we set the strategy for Wheaton Income it was about building a dynamic platform that promoted sustainable growth for both the industry and our shareholders. The acquisition of RockGarden will act as a strategic tool to help us with on-going partnerships and opportunities, but most importantly the development and execution of our existing and prospective streaming relationships.”
