Spotlight Companies |

Invictus MD Strategies Corp.'s (IMH:CA) licensed production facility under the access to cannabis for medical purposes regulations, Acreage Pharms Ltd., located near Edson, Alta., utilizing a multiroom indoor perpetual growing methodology, will begin its first harvest the first week of August, with the second harvest occurring the following week. The company anticipates a harvest to take place approximately monthly going forward.

Invictus MD is further pleased to announce that Acreage Pharms has received its development permit for phase 2 and has broken ground initiating construction on its 27,800-square-foot purpose-built, multiple-room production facility. All contractors and suppliers necessary for the project have been scheduled. Invictus MD has committed to investing $6.0-million, which will be used to finance the costs of constructing the production facility.

"Following our successful harvest at the AB Laboratories production facility as announced earlier, and by securing the development permit for our Alberta production facility, with $30-million cash available and the majority earmarked for building production capacity, Invictus MD is prepared for an exciting year of growth," said Dan Kriznic, executive chairman and chief executive officer, Invictus MD. "Led by one of the industry's most experienced teams, we are strongly focused on building our shareholder value. With 250 acres of cultivation space that stretches from Alberta to Ontario, allowing for purpose-built production facilities rather than retrofitting existing buildings, our large land package allows for building cultivation facilities as demand increases and we will continue the disciplined but agile execution of our business strategy, and further establishing our leadership position as Canada's cannabis company," added Mr. Kriznic.

Invictus MD also announced that Paul Sparkes and Josef W. Hocher have been appointed to the company's board of directors.
