the global landscape for countries where clearly defined regulatory

production operations, such as those currently being implemented in Canada,
Chris Hansen's financial expertise and global business experience working
with governments and international agencies focused on agricultural
development projects will be extremely beneficial for Vida Cannabis.

"Vida Cannabis is intent on staking a leadership position as the premium
producer of marijuana as the world rapidly evolves from an environment of

now able to flourish. I look forward to working with Chris and welcome him to
the Vida board."
