The Agreement enables Harvest One to sell its LivRelief InfusedTM topical creams on Canopy's Spectrum Therapeutics' online medical store via an extension of its licensing agreement with Valens Agritech Ltd ("Valens"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Valens Company.

"We are very pleased to work with Canopy Growth via our licensing agreement with Valens to distribute Harvest One's LivRelief InfusedTM brand of topical creams in Spectrum Therapeutics' online store," said Gord Davey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harvest One. "This is an amazing opportunity for our teams to work together to bring these top selling infused pain topical creams to more patients. Our collaboration with Canopy, through its Spectrum Therapeutics medical division, and The Valens Company will accelerate the distribution of our LivReliefTM infused topicals nationally and provide product access to more consumers."
Mr. Davey continued, "Our innovative infused topical creams, with their effective and differentiated delivery system, have resonated well with consumers, establishing LivRelief InfusedTM as a market leader in the infused topicals category. We look forward to working with Canopy and their Spectrum Therapeutics team to bring world class products, along with great educational support, to patients. Strategically, this lines up well with Harvest One's plans to expand nationally and globally with our LivReliefTM infused brand. This Agreement also strengthens our commitment to Harvest One shareholders to expand our position as a leader in health and wellness products."
