Spyder Cannabis Inc. (TSXV: SPDR) ("Spyder" or the "Company"), an established Canadian cannabis and vape retailer, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Spyder Cannabis Subco Inc. ("Spyder Subco"), has received Retail Store Authorization ("RSA") from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (the "AGCO") for its cannabis dispensary located at 776 Liverpool Rd., Unit 4, Pickering, Ontario, L1W 1S2.

Pending completion of a Pre-Store Opening Inspection by the AGCO, Spyder Subco will then be permitted to begin operating its second cannabis dispensary in Ontario under the SPDR Cannabis brand selling recreational cannabis products and consumption accessories.

Dan Pelchovitz, CEO of Spyder Subco, commented, "This new retail store is expected to be one of the first licensed dispensaries permitted to open in Pickering that has a growing population of approximately 100,000 residents and draws from a labour force of nearly 6 million from across the GTA. Leveraging our recent 180 Smoke acquisition, we have also begun converting two vape retail locations in Oshawa and Niagara Falls into cannabis dispensaries. We anticipate to apply for RSAs for these locations upon completion of our buildouts. We are excited to further our retail footprint across Ontario in underserved communities with our brand name and best-in-class customer service."
