Canntab's Legal Counsel on intellectual property, Gavin Bogle of Magyar, Bogle & O'Hara LLP said, "The allowance of Canntab's patent by the Australian Patent Office continues to further provide fundamental intellectual protection for Canntab's innovative tableting technology and even further validates the years of research and development the Company has conducted. The Company now has patent protection in the USA, Canada and Australia providing an international scope to the Company's expanding portfolio of issued patents."

Canntab believes its hard pill formulations are superior to all other medical CBD and THC delivery systems since they are true pharmaceutical grade delivery systems which provide superior ingredient stability, enhanced bioavailability, and provide customizable and precise dosing, as opposed to the widely available gel capsule products from other suppliers.

Canntab has eleven pending patent applications internationally and three patents which have now been granted. Canntab has developed both patented and patent pending technologies to deliver standardized medical cannabis extract in a variety of extended-release/ sustained-release pharmaceutical grade delivery systems.

Cann Global Limited Purchase Order

Canntab is also pleased to announce that further to an announcement made on October 26, 2020, Canntab has now received an initial purchase order in the amount of $406,200 with its Australian partner, Cann Global Limited of Australia ("Cann Global"). The initial purchase order includes 6 sku's comprised of 2.5mg THC, 5mg THC, 12.5mg CBD, 25mg THC, and combined caplets (a hard coated tablet in the shape of a capsule) with 5mg THC/ 25mg CBD and 2.5mg THC/ 12.5mg CBD.

Cann Global has already received its import license from the Australian Government Department of Health while Canntab is waiting for an Export License approval from Health Canada to fulfil and ship the order. The products ordered by Cann Global will be distributed throughout Australia to medical distributors, including Doctors, Pharmacies, and Hospitals. Canntab will update its shareholders as soon as its Export License has been approved.

Larry Latowsky, CEO of Canntab said, "These are 2 major milestones that confirms our proprietary formulations are unique and different from other product offerings in the global marketplace. Intellectual property is at the root of our value proposition and having been granted our first Australian patent and our third patent overall in less than 5 months further confirms our leading position as the go to company for precise dosage and pharmaceutical grade tablets and caplets for the medical market containing THC, CBD or many combinations of THC and CBD." Mr. Latowsky added "we are completing production of our first order and are in the final stages of approval with Health Canada for the proper export permits that will allow us to ship our order to Australia. With recent developments in the Australian market and the increasing acceptance of medical cannabis we are quite confident that our partnership with and supply to Cann Global will contribute to our planned growth."
