EnWave Signs Royalty-Bearing License for Drying Cannabis in Canada with Glasshouse Botanics

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) reports today that it has signed a royalty-bearing commercial sublicense (the "License") with Glasshouse Botanics Inc. (“Glasshouse Botanics”). Glasshouse Botanics cultivates high-quality medicinal cannabis at its licensed facility in Ontario, Canada. The License grants Glasshouse Botanics a non-exclusive right to use EnWave’s proprietary Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) dehydration technology for the drying of cannabis in Canada.

Under the terms of the License, Glasshouse Botanics will pay EnWave a usage-based royalty tied to the weight of finish dried cannabis dried using the REV™ machine.

Glasshouse Botanics will lease a small-scale 10kW REV™ machine for three months to initiate commercial production of dehydrated medical cannabis using EnWave’s REV™ technology. Glasshouse Botanics will have the option to purchase the 10kW REV™ machine at the completion of the three-month lease in order to extend the term of the License. All other terms of the License are confidential.

About EnWave

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products. 

REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with innovative, disruptive companies in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over thirty royalty-bearing licenses to date. In addition to these licenses, EnWave established a Limited Liability Corporation, NutraDried Food Company, LLC, to manufacture, market and sell all-natural dairy snack products in the United States, including the Moon Cheese® brand. 

EnWave has introduced REV™ as a disruptive dehydration platform in the food and cannabis sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently offers two distinct commercial REV™ platforms:

1. nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour; and

2. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
