This submission is the final stage in Just Kush's strategy and efforts to obtain regulatory approval for Cannabis Licensing, which has included the buildout and upgrading of its facility, and compliance with all of Health Canada's Cannabis Licensing requirements. The AOR submission was orchestrated and shepherded by Cannabis Compliance Inc. ("CCI"), a respected firm with a proven track record for success in this area.

Completion of the AOR involved certifying the readiness of the facility itself, and producing an attestation video and comprehensive report with evidence supporting the Company's adherence to Health Canada's standards and requirements for Cannabis Licensing.

"We are extremely gratified that we have reached the culmination of all our planning and efforts to effect the AOR submission," said Will Rascan , President and CEO of Liberty Leaf . "Special thanks goes out to the hard work by the Just Kush team. Our confidence level in the success of this submission, as well as the expertise of CCI as a part of the team, is exceptionally high."

Just Kush Quality Manager, Robert Jackman , is very pleased with the results: "The due diligence on the part of everyone involved has really paid off. It was very important to take the time to get this right, and to draw upon the efforts of the experts we brought in."

About Just Kush

Just Kush plans to cultivate premium strains of cannabis, selected for different levels of CBDs and THCs.

The company has a production facility situated on 13 acres in the Okanagan Valley near Oliver, B.C. and is currently in control of an MMAR licence to cultivate medicinal cannabis. It is also an applicant for cannabis licenses that will enable it to cultivate, process and sell cannabis for the medicinal and recreational markets.

With legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada , Just Kush plans to scale-up its proprietary craft grow technologies. With attention to detail, and aeroponic small-batch methods, production can be scaled to satisfy the demands of both the much larger recreational market that has now become a reality in Canada and medicinal markets globally.
