C21 Investments Supplements its Notice regarding Temporary Filing Relief

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 31, 2020) - C21 Investments Inc. (CSE: CXXI) (OTCQB: CXXIF) (the "Company") today supplements its news release from May 28, 2020, regarding its reliance on temporary regulatory filing relief, pursuant to the British Columbia Securities Commission's blanket order, BC Instrument 51-515 Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (the "Exemption"), and comparable exemptions in other Canadian provincial jurisdictions.

As a result of logistical delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is relying on the Exemption to postpone the release of its January 31, 2019 audited annual financial statements, and management's discussion and analysis (the "Annual Filings"). The Company is otherwise required to release its Annual Filings on or before June 1, 2020 pursuant to National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations, which is now estimated to be filed on or before July 14, 2020 in reliance of the Exemption.

The Company has imposed an insider trading blackout pending the release of its Annual Filings. Members of management, directors and other insiders will comply with the Company's insider trading policy and the guidelines described in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions, until the Annual Filings have been released.

There have been no material business developments in the Company's operations which have not previously been disclosed.

The CSE has not accepted responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release
