Breaking News: Blueberries Medical Corp Enters into Letter of Intent With El Manantial Medical Centers for Rapid Product Commercialization & Patient Acquisition; To Build Two Pharmacies to Support JV

Blueberries Medical Corp. (CSE: BBM) (OTC: BBRRF) (the “Company” or “Blueberries“), a leading Colombia-based licenced producer of medicinal cannabis and cannabis-derived products, has entered into a letter of intent (the “Letter Agreement”) dated February 13, 2019 for a joint venture (the “Joint Venture”) with Harmony and Life S.A.S., operating as El Manantial medical centers (“El Manantial”).

The Joint Venture will further the development and commercialization of Blueberries’ medicinal cannabis products through El Manantial’s rapidly growing patient base and collaboration with El Manantial’s team of physicians, pharmacists and technicians with deep expertise in a variety of medical areas. It will also provide a direct distribution channel to an established and rapidly growing patient by selling exclusively Blueberries’ cannabis-derived products. The Company has also set out to build two BPE (Good Elaboration Practices) certified pharmacies in support of the initiative which will provide additional sales channels for Blueberries’ products. Blueberries and El Manantial will also develop a treatment-focused medical education program designed to assist physicians in prescribing cannabis-based treatment plans to patients.

“Our joint venture with El Manantial provides an outstanding opportunity for Blueberries to develop medical products and acquire patients in the Colombian market”, stated Christian Toro, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “El Manantial is a respected leader in Colombia, and their focus on equitable access to medicine and patient care aligns with our goal of providing treatment to a broad spectrum of patients. The Joint Venture emphasizes communication with prescribing doctors and education of both doctors and patients which is expected to ensure that Blueberries is developing treatments that the medical community needs, and that a streamlined process is developed for the company to reach its patients.”

El Manantial is among the fastest growing networks of medical centers in Colombia, currently representing over 7,000 patients and expected to grow to over 50,000 patients over the next 36-month period as four new centers are projected to come online. This is an important development in Blueberries’ strategy to acquire patients and develop treatments with cannabis products, positioning Blueberries as a leader in the Colombian medicinal cannabis product market.

“This transaction will allow us the opportunity to work with the Blueberries team to develop new cannabis products and treatments, which can in turn be rolled out to our medical center network, offering patients the best possible care”, stated Dr. Andres Vidal, founder of El Manantial. “We plan for our prescribing physician education program to be an important step in supporting the widespread adoption of cannabis treatments in Colombia and globally.” Dr. Vidal, who has control and direction over El Manantial, is also a director of Blueberries.

Pharmacy Build-Out
Blueberries will make a strategic investment of up to C$400,000 in the construction of specialized pharmacies that are BPE (Good Elaboration Practices) certified. In addition to the pharmacies owned and operated by El Manantrial, the Company-owned pharmacies will also sell cannabis and cannabis-derived products exclusively from Blueberries. Completion of the build-out of the Company’s pharmacies is expected to occur during Q3 2019.
