CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 4, 2019 / The healthcare stock market has garnered copies amounts of media attention over the course of the past few years, as more people have come to understand the variety of benefits of introducing cannabis as a means of treatment for a myriad of ailments. Over time, in an effort to further these advancements in the healthcare industry, legislators have sought to pass positive legislation in favor of legalizing marijuana, resulting in the passing of the US Farm Bill as well as other laws around the world.

Aurora Cannabis Inc (ACB) today announced that its extraction technology partner, Radient Technologies, has received its Standard Processing License from Health Canada. Back in 2016, Aurora considered Radient's operations to be potentially harmful to the cannabis industry because of their ability to achieve higher throughputs than was possible with bench marking tech at the time, resulting in Aurora's decision to invest in the Company.

Terry Booth, Aurora's CEO, stated that ''Early on we identified that the ability to extract cannabis and hemp at large-scale while preserving quality would be a crucial competitive advantage to address the rapidly growing market for derivative products, such as vapes pen solutions, softgels, edibles, and beverages. With the upcoming new regulations permitting additional form factors and Radient's recent receipt of its processor license, we are in a strong position to rapidly expand production of a broad portfolio of extract-based products, tying in well with the significant scale-up of our global cannabis and hemp operations.''
