VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlissCo Cannabis Corp. (CSE:BLIS) (FRA:GQ4B), ("BlissCo") or the ("Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Gap Assessment.

This Gap Assessment brings BlissCo one step closer to earning its Eudralex GMP certification that will allow the company to export to European markets, including the German market, once the Company has  also earned its sales license. It is estimated that demand for medical marijuana in Germany could ultimately reach 126,000 kg per year.

"Currently there are eight Canadian ACMPR Licensed Producers with licensed facilities that are GMP certified through the Eudralex European regulatory body. Based on the positive feedback we received at the completion of our two day GMP Gap Assessment, we are confident that BlissCo will earn our European GMP certification in Q4 2018," said BlissCo CEO Damian Kettlewell. "Once we earn our European GMP certification and an amendment to our ACMPR license to sell, which is under active review by Health Canada, our German distribution partner will be able to apply for an import certificate which will enable us to  export cannabis to fulfil the 720 kg supply agreement to Germany that we announced in June 2018."

Germany is expected to rely on imports to meet 100% of the country's medical cannabis demand until at least 2020.

"BlissCo has a state of the art ACMPR facility and our GMP Gap Assessment team was impressed with BlissCo's cultivation and operational setup. We feel that their facility has the potential to be one of the first 12 GMP certified facilities in Canada," says Deepak Anand, VP of Business Development for Cannabis Compliance Inc.

It is estimated that the international medical cannabis market could reach $100 billion in annual retail value in the next 5-10 years.

"Earning our European GMP certification and sales license amendment will enable BlissCo to service patients in Canada and medical distribution partners in Europe as we expand the BlissCo Ecosystem. Fulfilling agreements within the German market can also serve as a stepping stone to the rest of the European markets when and where medical cannabis is legal," said BlissCo CEO Damian Kettlewell.
