Livewell Canada signs binding term sheet to supply hemp-derived CBD to Tilray

LiveWell Canada Inc. has signed a binding term sheet to supply Tilray Inc. with hemp-derived CBD isolate in North America.

Under the terms of the agreement, and subject to the governing laws of the local jurisdictions (possession, sale and distribution), LiveWell will supply Tilray a minimum of 150 kilograms per month of wholesale CBD isolate cultivated and processed from hemp commencing in February 2019, through to July 2019. The amount then increases to a minimum of 300 kg/month for the remainder of the contract, until December 2019. Tilray has the option to increase the amount of CBD supply purchased to 500 kg/month, and there is an additional 12-month renewable option.

The deal follows the ending of hemp prohibition in the United States. On December 12, 2018, the U.S. Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill, was passed by U.S. Congress. The 2018 Farm Bill legalizes hemp and removes it from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). CBD and other cannabinoid products extracted from hemp are also removed from the CSA. The bill must still be signed by President Trump, who has signalled support.

“We are pleased to have a strong partner such as Tilray in this emerging market,” said David Rendimonti, President and CEO of LiveWell Canada. “With the legal barriers lifting, we believe the market for hemp CBD could exceed all forecasts because of the huge shift to self-directed care and wellness among consumers.”
