About Valens GroWorks Corp.
The Company recently completed the acquisition of Valens Agritech Ltd. (“VAL”). VAL is a biotechnology company based in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, focused on cannabis cultivation and research, with assets and improvements that include a state-of-the-art 17,000 square foot R&D facility located in Kelowna, British Columbia.
VAL has scheduled a final inspection to take place this week, under its application for a Controlled Drugs and Substances Dealer’s Licence (including the activities of cultivation, production (extraction), packaging, possession, sale, transportation, delivery and research), by the Regional Inspectorate of the Office of Controlled Substances of Health Canada, expected to be a three day process.
Post-licensing, Valens anticipates participation in several clinical trial programs researching the efficacy of medical cannabis for certain indications, and is seeking to capture a broad spectrum of medical marijuana users, as well as recreational users once legalized.
