(CSE: OILS) (OTCQB: OILFF) (FSE: L0MA) ("Nextleaf", "OILS", or the "Company"), the world's most innovative cannabis processor, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Nextleaf Labs Ltd.

The Amendment allows Nextleaf Labs to offer additional value-added services to its partners with a quicker and more seamless path to market. Furthermore, the Amended Licence provides Nextleaf with the necessary flexibility to add another revenue stream outside of the business-to-business market by launching its own house brand should the Company deem it accretive.

"The receipt of this licence amendment marks a significant milestone for Nextleaf, our commercial partners, and our investors," said Nextleaf CEO, Paul Pedersen. "The sales licence helps Nextleaf service our partners more efficiently. Speed-to-market and the ability to test products effectively are often just as important to our partners as the price per molecule. This sales amendment, alongside our recently announced research licence amendment, and our unrivaled technology positions Nextleaf as a top tier extraction partner. Lastly, the amendment allows us to create and manufacture our own brands and add to our bottom-line revenue as the industry waits for market equilibrium in the extracts segment."

Nextleaf's proprietary closed-loop automated extraction refinery, capable of processing up to 600 kilograms of cannabis or hemp biomass daily with only 2-3 operators per shift, is located at Nextleaf Labs in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia.
