VANCOUVER, Feb. 4, 2019 /CNW/ – Zenabis Global Inc. (“Zenabis”) (TSXV: ZENA) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a supply agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart.

Shoppers Drug Mart may purchase dried marijuana and cannabis oil (once Zenabis receives its licence to sell oil) from the Zenabis medical branded product line, subject to any and all regulations. Shoppers also has the right to purchase all future products available as laws and regulations allow. Zenabis branded medical cannabis products will then be sold online at cannabis.shoppersdrugmart.ca, as regulations do not allow the sale of medical cannabis in retail pharmacies.

“We are very excited to provide Shoppers Drug Mart with Zenabis products,” said Andrew Grieve, CEO of Zenabis. “This partnership is very important to us and our strategic goals as a company moving forward, as it strengthens our commitment to serving medical patients across Canada.”
