MJardin premium cultivated product now available to Ontario consumers under the Flint and Embers brand
DENVER and TORONTO, Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MJardin Group, Inc. (“MJardin” or the “Company”) (CSE: MJAR) (OTCQX: MJARF), a leader in premium cannabis production, today announced that it has received approval, and executed a master service agreement (the “MSA”) with the Ontario Cannabis Store (the “OCS”), for the sale of its premium, high quality cannabis in the Ontario market, under the Flint and Embers brand.
The OCS approval and MSA, which immediately enable MJardin to make its product available to consumers in Ontario, is an important step in MJardin’s evolution from a pure play cultivator to a consumer-centric company, servicing the needs of retail consumers, in-line with the 2020 strategic plan. As a result, the Company expects increased revenues from same flower production given the higher realized price per gram at the retail sales level, while getting market recognition and consumer brand awareness under the Flint and Embers banner.
“I am extremely pleased to announce the signing of our MSA with the OCS,” stated Pat Witcher, CEO of MJardin. “This will enable MJardin to provide our high quality, high-THC flower to the largest consumer market in Canada, under our Flint and Embers brand. As I have mentioned throughout the year, this is another important step in our strategic plan as we bring our Canadian assets online and transition away from wholesale business into being a strong, consumer-facing brand.”

Caution Regarding Cannabis Operations in the United States
Investors should note that there are significant legal restrictions and regulations that govern the cannabis industry in the United States. Cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under the US Controlled Substances Act, making it illegal under federal law in the United States to, among other things, cultivate, distribute or possess cannabis in the United States. Financial transactions involving proceeds generated by, or intended to promote, cannabis-related business activities in the United States may form the basis for prosecution under applicable US federal money laundering legislation.
While the approach to enforcement of such laws by the federal government in the United States has trended toward non-enforcement against individuals and businesses that comply with medical or adult-use cannabis programs in states where such programs are legal, strict compliance with state laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve the Company of liability under US federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any federal proceeding which may be brought against the Company. The enforcement of federal laws in the United States is a significant risk to the business of the Company and any proceedings brought against the Company thereunder may adversely affect the Company’s operations and financial performance.
