Medbox Executes Consulting Agreement with Licensed Medical Cannabis Laboratory and Cultivation Center in Canada
Date:12/11/2013

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (OTC Markets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com), a leader in providing industry specific consulting services and patented systems to the medical and retail industries, announced execution of a consulting agreement with a cannabis research and development laboratory licensed and permitted by Health Canada. According to the terms, Medbox has been engaged in an ongoing consulting role as the lab transitions to cannabis producer and distributor. The laboratory is currently one of only a few allowed to cultivate and study cannabis in Canada for use in medicinal applications. With Medbox's help, the laboratory is poised to be one of the first to have a producer and distribution license granted in the new Canadian medical cannabis market. 

"The laboratory we are working with already possesses a level 6 clearance and exemption to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) in Canada for research and development of cannabis, and is truly best suited to transition into the production and delivery distribution model that Health Canada has adopted," stated Dr. Bruce Bedrick, CEO of Medbox, Inc. "We are extremely excited about working alongside this laboratory as they start legally selling their medicine to the patients of Canada. We look forward to divulging the name of the laboratory once they achieve additional permitting through Health Canada as a licensed producer/distributor. In the meantime, we have agreed to maintain our client's anonymity during the application process, while still adhering to relevant disclosure requirements as Medbox transitions to becoming a fully reporting company."

Company executives further commented that the deal allows Medbox to benefit in the following ways:

  • Consulting revenue to Medbox, through a wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, on all sales of medical cannabis products in the Canadian market sold by the licensed producer/distributor on a perpetual basis.
  • Development and product placement in Canada of next generation Medbox Technology that is outfitted with additional security features that will allow the equipment to act as a "medicine vault" – meeting or exceeding all specifications set forth in Canadian law for storage of controlled substances. These product enhancements will allow for equipment placements in doctors' offices and cultivation centers to monitor dispensing of medications to facility staff prior to reaching the end user, in strict accordance with Health Canada's regulatory framework.
  • Development of cannabis genetics that target specific health ailments that can be mass-produced and marketed in the United States, once such activities are federally permitted in the United States.  

"This is by far our most exciting deal to date. Our knowledge, know-how, and access to capital have put us in a position to generate revenue in an emerging market on pace for exponential growth," stated Vincent Mehdizadeh, Chief Operations Officer at Medbox, Inc. "While we are encouraged by the leaps and bounds that we have seen in the United States, with new markets opening up in various countries globally, we would be remiss if we did not capitalize on opportunities in other jurisdictions that are 100% condoned on a federal level."

Company executives reiterate that these Canadian activities are meant to enhance the company's core business in the United States and will help the company be in a "first mover" position once an open market exists in the United States.

"Medbox has existing relationships with over 150 dispensary operators in the United States as a technology supplier and industry consultant," Mehdizadeh stated. "We anticipate that this number will grow to over 500 dispensaries within the next few years. These relationships are extremely valuable and allow for us to market medicinal products to these dispensaries once the United States government allows for such activities to occur. We are uniquely positioned to fill that need when the time comes."
