Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) (the “Company” or “Chemistree”), is pleased to announce that its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, American CHM Investments Inc., has signed a letter of intent (LOI) to partner with Applied Cannabis Sciences of New Jersey (“ACS”), a New Jersey-based medical retail dispensary applicant in the upcoming New Jersey round of Request for Applications (RFA), which is anticipated in 2020.

Applied Cannabis Sciences has been established by a team of seasoned professionals from the legal medicinal and adult use marijuana industry whose collective experience exceeds 50 years and includes over 20 cultivation, processing, and manufacturing licenses across four states (Washington, Oregon, California, and Colorado) within the U.S. The ACS team is predominantly made up of professionals that reside and currently operate from New Jersey and maintain multiple strategic relationships. Recently appointed Chemistree board member, Nico Escondido, is a founding member of the ACS team.

The application, if successful, will provide ACS with a fully integrated cultivation, manufacturing/processing and retail sales license in the state of New Jersey of which there are currently only 12 issued.

“We are excited about partnering with ACS, a highly experienced group recognized in the medical and recreational cannabis space that bring a track record of innovation and success.    The potential to expand Chemistree’s presence outside of California and Washington state and ultimately introduce our signature brand Sugarleaf to the large New Jersey consumer base by partnering with ACS is consistent with our growth strategy,” stated Karl Kottmeier, President of Chemistree. “New Jersey is home to over nine million people currently being served by only 12 cannabis operators in its medical program. New Jersey is a logical place for Chemistree to expand into and bring the Sugarleaf brand to the New Jersey market. I would like to specifically thank Nico Escondido, our newest board member for the introduction to this exciting opportunity and I am impressed with the significant impact he is already clearly having on our Company.”

The terms of the partnership arrangement and LOI are not financially material.

Cannabis-related Practices or Activities are Illegal Under U.S. Federal Laws
The concepts of “medical cannabis” and “recreational cannabis” do not exist under U.S. federal law. The Federal Controlled Substances Act classifies “marihuana” as a Schedule I drug. Under U.S. federal law, a Schedule I drug or substance has a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use in the United States, and a lack of safety for the use of the drug under medical supervision. As such, cannabis related practices or activities, including without limitation, the manufacture, importation, possession, use or distribution of cannabis are illegal under U.S. federal law. Strict compliance with state laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve the Company of liability under U.S. federal law, nor will it provide a defence to any federal proceeding which may be brought against the Company. Enforcement of U.S. federal laws will be a significant risk to the business of the Company and any such proceedings brought against the Company may adversely affect the Company’s operations and financial performance.

Further information regarding the legal status of cannabis related activities and associated risk factors, including, but not limited to, risk of enforcement actions, risks that third-party service providers, such as banking or financial institutions cease providing services to the Company, and the risk that Company may not be able to distribute profits, if any, from U.S. operations up to the Company, are included in the preliminary short form prospectus of the Company filed in respect of the Offering, the Company’s annual information form and other documents incorporated by reference therein and in the Company’s Form 2A listing statement filed with the CSE and available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
