Organigram Receives Organic Certification for Recreational Cannabis

Organigram Holdings Inc., the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading licensed producer of cannabis, is pleased to announce its recreational cannabis plants and growing processes have been certified organic with Pro-Cert Organic Systems Ltd. (“Pro-Cert”). Pro-Cert is one of North America’s foremost certification bodies and is accredited by IOAS to provide third party certification to the Canadian Organic Standards. As a licensed producer of medical and adult-use recreational cannabis, Organigram is one of the most experienced organic producers in the industry. Organigram has worked closely with Pro-Cert to achieve the certification.

“We know that there is a significant consumer demand for organic cannabis products,” said Greg Engel, CEO Organigram. “We have been proud to offer our medical customers access to organic strains and are excited to be able to expand our offering to adult recreational consumers who value organic options.”

The Pro-Cert certification fortifies Organigram’s organic strategy and product offering, complementing the Company’s existing organic certification with EcoCert, who currently certifies the organic process for its medical products. The Company has been successfully producing organic medical cannabis and the option has proven to be one of the Company’s most popular strains for medical patients. The Pro-Cert certification also enables the Company to formalize its plans for the launch of ANKR Organics into the recreational marketplace, Organigram’s line of organic flower and organic edible extract oils.

“The ANKR brand reflects Organigram’s commitment to organic excellence, a responsiveness to the market and consumer preferences, and an understanding of the drivers of our future growth,” said Engel. “Organigram’s organic offering brings together the best of what we know about organic cultivation and product development and adds another high-quality offering to our product portfolio.”

ANKR is expected to launch in select Canadian markets later in 2019.
