DENVER, CO, Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: MDCL) (“Medicine Man” or “Company”), one of the United States' leading cannabis branding and consulting companies is pleased to provide an update on international client and partnership activity.
The Company has recently entered into a contract for cultivation support with a German-based applicant competing for up to seven of the ten tender bids related specifically to growing medical cannabis in Germany. Medicine Man Technologies will be providing substantial support to the client in advance of the issuance of any final award, including indoor GMP-compliant facility design services, operating plan guidance, and cultivation standard operating procedures, among other deliverables.
The agreement marks Medicine Man Technologies’ first European-based medical cultivation client and further expands the Company’s international presence that includes partnerships with Canadian and South African clients. The Company is actively exploring additional international opportunities with prospects from both South America and Australia that are seeking the best efficiencies and product quality from both indoor and greenhouse-based growing environments.
Joshua Haupt, Medicine Man’s Chief Cultivation Officer stated, “I am very pleased this opportunity has come our way and believe that we will be able to deliver to a superior indoor cultivation experience and knowledge base that should provide for a very solid foundation on which our Client may build their German brand presence.”
This German client was referred to Medicine Man Technologies by an Israeli group with whom the Company plans to develop an independent partnership for further international expansion of our Cannabis related products and services, in particular focusing on GMP based indoor and greenhouse cultivation facility design and deployment.
Medicine Man Technologies is also pleased to announce the formation of a working relationship with Orion GMP Solutions (www.oriongmp.com) which should help ensure that the Company’s cultivation facility designs meet GMP standards where required internationally as well as here in the US.
Brett Roper, Medicine Man’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “We continue to experience a substantial increase in international inquiries as Medicine Man’s reputation and new client pipeline continues to grow. These inquiries have been driven by a need among cannabis growers internationally to create both a highest quality, GMP based indoor growing environment as well as a desire to enhance the overall efficiency of operating cultivation related facilities. Our relationship with Orion GMP Solutions should allow us to quickly advance our already efficient designs to meet GMP standards where required globally. As a Company, we remain confident that our superior cultivation methodologies as demonstrated by the Three-A-Light ® and Success Nutrients ® brands provide a tangible competitive advantage to Medicine Man Technologies’ clients and are convinced that new relationships such as these provide us with a unique value in being able to generate quality inquiries that will lead to strong long-term relationships in the industry.”
