VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Abattis Bioceuticals Corp. (the “Company” or “Abattis“) (CSE:ATT) (OTC:ATTBF) is pleased to announce the formation of a new partnership (the “Partnership”) with Faculty Brewing Co. (“Faculty Brewing”), a Vancouver-based craft brewery, to develop a hemp-infused, cannabinoid-rich, THC-free craft beer. Pursuant to a research services agreement between Abattis and Faculty Brewing, Abattis will conduct research and development activities related to the development of a hemp-infused, cannabinoid-rich, THC-free craft beer, or a line of such beers, for Faculty Brewing.
“Our exciting partnership with Faculty Brewing positions us as one of the first Canadian companies to secure an agreement for research and development, analytical and regulatory services relating to a hemp- and cannabis-infused beverage,” said Rob Abenante, President and CEO of Abattis. “By aiming to develop a line of functional beers, each based on a different type of hemp extract, we hope to have a product that is compliant and market-ready as soon as Health Canada releases its new regulatory framework for hemp and cannabis-infused beverages,” added Mr. Abenante.
