(“AgraFlora” or the “Company”) (CSE: AGRA) (Frankfurt: PU31) (OTCPK: AGFAF) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Farmako GmbH (“Farmako”) – a GDP certified pharmaceutical wholesaler with a focus on the cannabinoid
therapy – has begun supplying STADAPHARM GmbH (“STADAPHARM”) with its proprietary THC Testkits (the “THC Testkits”). The THC Testkits were developed and produced by Farmako in-house and will be

Therefore, we as Farmako want to facilitate easier access to cannabinoid therapy for patients with a high burden of suffering via fair prices, reliable supply and efficient service for healthcare professionals. For us, cooperation is an important element of competition, only in this way can we develop the market for the benefit of patients.
