(OTCQX: MDCL) ("Medicine Man Technologies" or "Company"), a rapidly growing, vertically integrated cannabis operator, today is pleased to announce that it has entered into binding term sheets to acquire 100% of the assets of Green Equity S.A.S. ("Green Equity"). The acquisition will provide Medicine Man Technologies with additional licenses and intellectual property (IP) for cultivation, manufacturing, extraction, exportation, and R&D, increasing its capabilities and service offerings to becoming a vertically integrated operator.

"This pending acquisition secures our strategy for international growth, beginning with our entry into Colombia," said Mr. Andy Williams, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Medicine Man Technologies. "We have proven the success of our rollout in Colorado and have developed a world-class reputation that now is ripe with opportunities. We believe that our early entry into the market will allow us to further our goal of becoming a major global player in the cannabis industry and create tremendous value for our shareholders."
Medicine Man Technologies will pay $5.4 million for Green Equity, consisting of $450,000 in cash and 1,292,427 shares of common stock at $3.83 per share. Following the Company's recent financing with Dye Capital & Company, Medicine Man Technologies has a strong balance sheet to support its growth initiatives.
