VANCOUVER, [May 5, 2021] - Segra International Corp, a leading cannabis agriculture technology company, is pleased to announce its first successful shipment of numerous premium Cannabis cultivars to one of the first licensed medical cannabis producers in Germany. Under the licensing agreement, Segra's team has curated specific cultivars to meet the chemical potency range requirements necessary to produce licensed medical cannabis in Germany.
"Segra's Verified Segra-Stock plantlets offer medical cannabis cultivators the option to introduce genetics to their facilities while maintaining phytosanitary standards for pharmaceutical-grade cannabis cultivation," said Jamie Blundell, CEO of Segra International. "Building on our recent shipments to South Africa, this agreement again demonstrates Segra's ability to fulfill plantlet orders from our lab in Vancouver to literally any corner of the globe. Our distribution model builds upon a well-established global regulatory system developed by agricultural titans such as Dole Fruit and Driscoll's companies. This model makes it possible for tissue culture plants to ship internationally in full compliance with phytosanitary import restrictions. Furthermore, contrary to the huge hurdles cannabis licensed producers face in exporting dry flowers and formulary cannabis products, our young plant products are being welcomed by federal regulators in emerging cannabis markets. This is especially true with regulators who see the critical importance that their nation's growers have access to clean stock from top-performing cultivars against the backdrop of an increasingly competitive cannabis industry landscape."

The company's proprietary technologies empower its clients to drive financial performance and mitigate risk while exploring the next frontier of optimized cultivation practices for the rapidly evolving cannabis consumer.
