Segra International Corp. (“Segra” or the “Company) is pleased to announce that its application to produce cannabis under Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Segra Biogenesis Corp., has progressed to “active review” status. This progress places the Company in the final stage of the ACMPR application process, which precedes the issuance of a license allowing Segra to produce and sell micropropagated cannabis plantlets. Segra continues its diligent work with Health Canada to complete its large-scale cannabis micropropagation facility, which is designed to produce up to 50 million cannabis plantlets a year, for the Canadian market and other legal jurisdictions worldwide.

“We are very pleased with the recent news regarding our application and would like to thank our whole team for all of their hard work to achieve this milestone,” said Todd McMurray, President/CEO. “We believe that one of the more difficult hurdles encountered in the application process is behind us and look forward to continuing our momentum.”
