BURLINGTON, Ontario – November 25, 2020 – Rapid Dose Therapeutics Corp. (“RDT” or the “Company”) (CSE: DOSE), a Canadian life sciences company focused on innovative drug and active ingredient delivery solutions, is pleased to announce it signed a definitive agreement with ESJ Enterprises, LLC. RDT has licensed ESJ to produce Ultrapure THC (U-THC™) Delta 9 distillate using the RDT’s proprietary CBD to THC conversion technology.

Jason Lewis, RDT SVP Business Development said “Despite COVID-19 market challenges, RDT continues to demonstrate its focus on novel technological advancements. In conjunction with our licensee we have proven the commercial capability of consistently producing Ultrapure THC Delta 9 distillate in mass quantities. THC from CBD derived from hemp is a major breakthrough in the cannabis industry. We can help manage global distillate shortages and allow consumers to benefit from an ultrapure regulated THC product.”

In conjunction with the McMaster University research team lead by Drs. James Mcnulty and Alex Nielsen, RDT has developed a process using its Genius Conversion Catalyst™ (GCC™) to transform CBD isolate into THC distillate with a selective Delta 9 or Delta 8 outcome at a rate of 99%.  ESJ has worked with RDT to create a scalable process facility that can produce up to 100 kg of Ultrapure THC (U-THC™) Delta 9 distillate per day. By combining the steady supply of high-quality Isolera Extracts CBD isolate with the RDT GCC process, an unlimited amount of U-THC™ distillate is possible.

Production of the first 400 kg of U-THC™ distillate will be completed in Oklahoma prior to December 15, 2020 to fill a backlog of demand in the state. Continuous production of the Ultrapure THC will commence in Michigan in December 2020 to ensure cannabis processors there can meet their market supply requirements.

Jack Tatum, ESJ CEO, said “The combined effort of RDT and ESJ has created a unique way to solve the massive and continuous supply issues facing producers in most states. We are pleased with the working relationship and the joint focus on producing Ultrapure THC products with the intent to change the THC distillate market dynamics globally. The ESJ team has the equipment and proven experience to deliver on its contracts and quality promise and will continue to expand production.”
