Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 21, 2020) – The Hash Corporation (the “Company”, or “HashCo”), a Canadian company positioning itself to focus on the production and sale of cannabis-based hashish and other cannabis products, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a long-term collaboration agreement (the “Collaboration Agreement”) with Medz Cannabis Incorporated (“Medz Cannabis”), an Ontario-based, privately-owned company licensed for the cultivation, processing and sale of medical cannabis under the Cannabis Act. The Collaboration Agreement, which opens up opportunities in the regulated cannabis industry within Canada for the Company, is expected to enable the Company to deliver a suite of specialty hash products to the Canadian market as early as Q3 2020.
“This collaboration represents a significant step towards bringing our suite of unique products to the discerning Canadian consumer. We are extremely thrilled to work with Medz Cannabis to secure the requisite approvals, and expect to generate revenue from the Processing Space in the near term,” said Chris Savoie, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
Under the terms of the Collaboration Agreement, Medz Cannabis will provide the Company with up to 2,500 square feet of processing space (the “Processing Space“) within a licensed facility owned by Medz Cannabis and located in Toronto, Ontario (the “Facility“), to process, package and distribute cannabis-based hashish and other cannabis concentrates (collectively, the “Products“). In addition, Medz Cannabis will assist the Company in obtaining the requisite regulatory approvals to produce and sell the Products and make use of the Processing Space, and supply the Company with cannabis bi-products and biomass required by the Company to produce the Products. Under the terms of the Collaboration Agreement, the Company will pay to Medz Cannabis a 3.5% royalty on all revenues generated on the sale of the Products produced in the Processing Space (the “Subject Products“), and a 5% royalty on the tolling or service rate charged by the Company on service contracts relating to the Subject Products.
In connection with the Collaboration Agreement, the parties have also entered into an offer to lease in respect of the Processing Space. The parties are expected to enter into a formal lease agreement, as well as a supply and branding agreement in due course, to set out certain additional terms on which the Company will make use of the Processing Space, and the terms on which the Company and Medz Cannabis will process and sell the Products.
