TORONTO, CANADA – (July 12, 2017) – Gilla Inc. (“Gilla” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: GLLA), the fast-growing designer, marketer and manufacturer of E-liquid for vaporizers and developer of cannabis concentrate products, today announced that the Company’s Toronto-based subsidiary, Gilla Enterprises Inc., has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with one of Canada’s premier Licensed Producers (the “LP”) under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (Canada) (“ACMPR”). The LOI calls for Gilla to collaborate with the LP to provide a cannabis vapor solution for distribution to the LP’s extensive client base in Canada. The proposed device and packaging will be submitted to Health Canada to obtain any necessary approvals post signing of a definitive agreement.
Under the terms of the LOI, the Company and the LP would enter into a definitive agreement to provide both private-label and branded cannabis vapor solutions (the “Licensed Products”) for the LP to produce and distribute in Canada through the LP’s authorized distribution channels. The Company will work with the LP to develop full scale production-level standard operating procedures that will be used to manufacture the Licensed Products to comply with Health Canada’s ACMPR requirements; including device selection, packaging and other regulated criteria. As consideration for the license and rights to be granted under the definitive agreement, the Company would receive a ten percent (10%) royalty on gross revenues generated from sales of the private-label products. Furthermore, royalties generated from the sales of Gilla branded products will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
“This is a great leap forward for our cannabis concentrate division,” stated Mr. Graham Simmonds, Chair and CEO of Gilla. He added, “We have put a tremendous amount of work into the development of these products which will receive a higher level of scrutiny than most cannabis vape products have endured to date. Working with a market-leading partner in both quality and overall industry sales provides Gilla with a powerful platform to demonstrate the competitive edge of our proprietary cannabis products and ability to grow our footprint throughout Canada. We will also continue to pursue additional licensing agreements to broaden our market reach into additional jurisdictions as we see fit.”
