Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 25, 2020) -  Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (TSXV: EMH) (OTCQX: EMHTF) ("Emerald") today announced its joint venture for large-scale, low-cost, high-quality cannabis production, Pure Sunfarms, has begun shipping its first Cannabis 2.0 and bottled oil products. Shipments will initially be to British Columbia, with shipments to Ontario and Alberta planned to begin shortly.

Pure Sunfarms' vape cartridges feature full spectrum extract, which preserves the cannabinoids and terpenes from the original flower and maintains the aromas and flavors true to cultivar. Pure Sunfarms' Full Spectrum Vapes feature 0.5g of single-strain, BC-grown cannabis extract and are available in three of their best-selling high-THC indica and sativa strains: Afghan Kush, White Rhino, and Island Honey. Each vape cartridge is fitted with a ceramic mouthpiece, glass tank, ceramic heating coil, and is compatible with a standard 510 thread cartridge battery.

Pure Sunfarms' Pure Sun CBD Oil is made purely with BC-grown, whole flower Pure Sun CBD cultivar (aka Cannatonic), selected for its unique potential to produce consistently CBD-rich flowers. Pure Sun CBD Oil comes in a 30mL amber bottle, and is available in both a 1:10 or 1:30 THC:CBD formulation so consumers can tailor their CBD experience to meet their individual needs.

"At Pure Sunfarms, flower is at the core of what we do. It's our growing experience and our commitment to quality that has really inspired our evolution into Cannabis 2.0," said Mandesh Dosanjh, President & CEO, Pure Sunfarms. "All Pure Sunfarms' vape and oil products are made from our naturally-grown signature strains, always using the best parts of the flower, to provide a safe and smooth experience from start to finish."

Mr. Dosanjh added, "Pure Sunfarms has taken a pragmatic, thoughtful and measured approach to our product strategy, first establishing a commanding position in the dried flower market, and then leveraging our brand, reputation and experience to enter new, large, higher value product categories. Vapes have already become the second largest category with the Ontario Cannabis Store after dried flower, and bottled oils are the fourth largest category with the OCS after dried flower, vapes and pre-rolls1."

"Pure Sunfarms is positioned to leverage its scale and expertise, the foundation for its strong competitive performance to date in the cannabis dried flower market, to produce and sell well-priced value-added products such as bottled oils and vape products," said Riaz Bandali, CEO of Emerald. "With Pure Sunfarms' sharp focus on leadership in the product categories it enters, we welcome its entry into these notable segments of the market and their contribution to the joint venture's operating and financial performance."

Pure Sunfarms expects to begin its own extraction operations and will continue to add Cannabis 2.0 products to its portfolio in the months ahead.
