NORFOLK COUNTY, ON, Jun 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Target Group Inc. (OTCQB: CBDY) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Canary Rx Inc. ("Canary") has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with CANABC Services Ltd. ('CANABC') to provide consulting and distribution services to Micro License applicants.
CANABC is a medical and regulatory consulting firm that has assisted more than 8,000 patients to obtain medical cannabis documents from Health Canada. Based in Kelowna, British Columbia, the company's consultants have worked with patients across Canada since 2007. With support from Canary, CANABC will now offer a comprehensive suite of consulting services to assist Micro Cultivation, Processing and Nursery applicants to obtain a license under the Cannabis Act.
"Over the years, CANABC has met with hundreds of medical growers, many of which now wish to obtain Micro Licenses, yet don't feel equipped to navigate Health Canada's complex regulatory environment. We want to support these growers to get licensed, and stay licensed", said Lawrence Bintner, President & CEO of CANABC.
Micro License applicants, often referred to as 'craft' growers, face many obstacles as they attempt to prepare a compliant facility and processes, obtain a license from Health Canada, and meet the ongoing regulatory compliance requirements. In contrast to traditional consulting firms, CANABC will provide fully-customized Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Good Production Practices (GPPs) prepared by a Quality Assurance Specialist, and assist Micro's with ongoing compliance once licensed. Additionally, Canary will offer distribution services to Micro Cultivators that are restricted to selling cannabis to Licensed Producers under the current regulations.
"Canary understands that individuals and companies seeking Micro Licenses are often highly skilled and experienced growers. Everyone deserves an opportunity to participate in the cannabis industry, and we want to support Canadian growers in their efforts to become licensed", said Jake Weinstein, Co-Founder & COO at Canary. "Consumers will benefit from the quality and diversity that craft growers can offer".
