EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) reports today that it has signed a royalty-bearing commercial sublicense (the “License”) with Glasshouse Botanics Inc. (“Glasshouse Botanics”). Glasshouse Botanics cultivates high-quality medicinal cannabis at its licensed facility in Ontario, Canada. The License grants Glasshouse Botanics a non-exclusive right to use EnWave’s proprietary Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) dehydration technology for the drying of cannabis in Canada.

Under the terms of the License, Glasshouse Botanics will pay EnWave a usage-based royalty tied to the weight of finish dried cannabis dried using the REV™ machine.

Glasshouse Botanics will lease a small-scale 10kW REV™ machine for three months to initiate commercial production of dehydrated medical cannabis using EnWave’s REV™ technology. Glasshouse Botanics will have the option to purchase the 10kW REV™ machine at the completion of the three-month lease in order to extend the term of the License. All other terms of the License are confidential.

About EnWave

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, legal cannabis and pharmaceutical sectors. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up eight distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Partnership, NutraDried LLP, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.

EnWave has introduced REV™ as the new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms:
1.    nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour;
2.    powderREV® which is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point, and
3.    quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
An additional platform, freezeREV®, is being developed as a new method to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies. More information about EnWave is available at www.enwave.net.
