MONTREAL, July 5, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - Lumiera Health Inc. (TSXV: NHP) (the "Company" or "Lumiera "), a company specializing in the development and commercialization of natural health products, is pleased to provide an update to announce that the corporate strategy and plans that were put place in 2021, are continuing to prove successful with Lumiera's first half of 2022 improving its sales by +40% compared to last year first half results.
The increase in the Company's sales has been driven by increased retail and online distribution which has led to trial and repeat purchases of Awaye™ natural pain relief cream and Bazzzics™, a natural non-addictive sleep aid.
"We are very proud to see that the strategies and plans we put together and have been executing are driving considerable growth, both in online and retail channels." says Carlos Ponce, CEO of Lumiera Health.

As we keep expanding national distribution and begin sales in the US, we look forward to continuing our growth."
Q2 financial statements will be released on or before July 29, 2022.
