Press Release

Radient Technologies Inc. Announces Master Services Agreement with Medical Cannabis Supplier Bonify


Posted on: 26 Feb 18

EDMONTON, Alberta, Feb. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radient Technologies Inc. ("Radient" or the “Company”) (TSX-V:RTI) announces the signing of a Master Services Agreement (the “Agreement”) to produce a variety of cannabis extracts for Bonify (“Bonify”), a private, Manitoba-based Canadian-Licensed producer of medical cannabis.

Under the terms of this Agreement, Radient will use its proprietary microwave-based extraction platform and decades of extraction expertise to deliver “Extraction as a Service” to Bonify, an innovative, quality-driven Authorized Licensed Producer of Cannabis for Medical Purposes. From its Edmonton extraction facility, Radient will process Bonify’s cultivated cannabis material to deliver standardized cannabis oil products. Both Bonify and Radient remain open to the exploration of possible synergies for future collaboration beyond this Master Services Agreement.

The terms of this Agreement were reached on the basis of Radient’s ability to provide solutions for Bonify’s key production demands, including:

  • Increased purity -- Bonify’s product offerings are categorized into several varieties based on the ratio of bioactive content (tetrahydrocannabinol or “THC” and cannabidiol or “CBD”) they contain. Radient’s platform can consistently deliver extraction efficiencies of up to 98%, while nearly fully preserving cannabinoid terpene profiles, and enabling the standardization of the strength/dosage of active ingredients.
     
  • Cost efficiency -- Radient’s MAP™ extraction technology has the proven ability to generally extract more active compounds from valuable cannabis biomass than conventional extraction methods, usually resulting in higher yields with greater purity, while also decreasing time, energy and solvent used during production.
     
  • Scalability -- Bonify’s national and international market plans will require the processing of large quantities of cannabis into oils. Radient’s proprietary extraction technology has demonstrated throughputs of over 1,500 kg of biomass per day.

“We look forward to working with Bonify in delivering products that maintain the highest standards of quality assurance and consistency, at a scale that meets Bonify’s current and future growth plans,” commented Mike Cabigon, COO of Radient.  “This Agreement is another key milestone for Radient as we establish a leadership position within the cannabis value chain.”

Mark Smolenski, COO of Bonify, stated, “Our team is excited to partner with Radient to utilize their proven, cost-effective extraction platform for the production of innovative, high value, cannabis-derived products. The market for these products is growing at a rapid rate across the globe.  Through this Agreement, we will keep pace with this accelerating demand and strengthen our position as a leading provider of medical cannabis products.”
