Abattis Completes Audit and Prepares to Launch Northern Vine Labs

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 24, 2017 / Abattis Bioceuticals Corp. (ATTBF) (CNSX:ATT) ("ATT" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of their annual audit. The delay in filing was due to an eventful year with new programs coming online and an aggressive strategy to cut non-core assets resulting in prolonged consolidations and subsequent review.

Management has been focusing their efforts on their Northern Vine Lab buildout after receiving their controlled substance dealers license ("CSL") in 2016. The lab setup has been expedited and is now approximately 45 days away from opening its doors to licensed producer and MMAR patient customers for cannabis testing and analytics. Issues surrounding quality control and massive cannabis product recalls from licensed producers by Health Canada have recently taken headlines in the press. Northern Vine Labs is strategically positioned in Langley, British Columbia and holds a considerable geographic advantage over their few competitors as the region has many MMAR growers looking to prove their products' quality.

Northern Vine Labs has the necessary licenses and controls in place to legally possess and work with the raw herb (cannabis) and its active ingredients. The company will provide analytical R&D and quality control testing on a large variety of cannabis based products, screening for cannabinoids, terpenes, microbiological contaminants, pesticides and residual solvents. The license also allows Northern Vine to formulate new products for licensed producers in Canada.

Updates: Since last week's release, Abattis, through its subsidiary Vergence Bioceuticals, delivered their first order, consisting of three pallets of Green Nature's dried berry products, to Sunrype. Although modest in size, this marks the beginning of Green Nature's sales cycle in what looks to be a busy year filled with trade shows and selling.

Lastly, negotiations with Raybot Science Co. and Abattis China Co. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Abattis) have been progressing well and Abattis will soon be testing Raybot's patented extraction methods in Canada. Raybot claims that its technology will allow for pure isolate derivatives of the Cannabis plant to be extracted at a fraction of the cost and in one seamless process as opposed to the 2-3 step extraction methods of CO2. Abattis continues to perform due diligence on this opportunity and will keep investors updated on their progress.
