Medical Marijuana Stock News: Marapharm Ventures Inc. (OTCQB: $MRPHF) (CSE: $MDM) Kelowna, B.C. Announces a Laboratory for Research and Development of Marijuana for its Washington Property


KELOWNA, British Columbia - April 4, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Marapharm (OTCQB: MRPHF) (CSE: MDM) (FSE: 2M0) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with AlphaPheno Inc. ("Alpha") of Washington state to build a laboratory on the 13.6-acre-site of Marapharm's property. Alpha, in conjunction with Veritas Pharma Inc., an emerging discovery and IP development company, will enter into a joint venture arrangement for the research and development ("R&D") business. Alpha holds a Tier 3 cultivation and processing license and therefore is permitted to apply for and hold an R&D license. With an extensive list of cannabis genetics and existing cultivation space, Alpha is applying for a marijuana research license to leverage the synergy with Veritas in the U.S. market. The agreement is conditional on acceptance of the application. The license will provide the holder with the ability to produce, process, and possess marijuana to test chemical potency and composition levels, to conduct clinical investigations of marijuana-derived drug products, to conduct research on the efficacy and safety of administering marijuana as part of medical treatment, and to conduct genomic and or agriculture research. Veritas will provide the R&D thesis, programs, equipment, and laboratory standards and protocol for a focused R&D approach. Veritas will also determine the key qualified personnel required to execute these programs. A new laboratory will be constructed within Marapharm's buildings, which are occupied by Alpha.
"The R&D laboratory will be a welcome addition to the cannabis campus and is a reason for other cannabis businesses to look to us for a facility. Veritas, (VRT and VRTHF), is a public company, of which Marapharm owns 15 million shares, so entering into a joint venture with Veritas represents another level of commitment", said Linda Sampson, Marapharm's CEO.
