September 18, 2019 – Toronto, Ontario – Matica Enterprises Inc. (MMJ – CSE) (MMJFF – OTCQB) (39N – Frankfurt) (“Matica” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the status of the applications for licences for both Standard Processing and Sales For Medical Purposes by RoyalMax Biotechnology Canada Inc. (“RoyalMax”) for the Dorval facility. Samples from the first, second, third, fourth and fifth crops have been dried (198.24 Kg dried weight) and have been submitted for independent laboratory testing. Upon receipt of the currently outstanding independent laboratory results, expected this month, RoyalMax intends to submit for both a Standard Processing Licence and a Sales For Medical Purposes licence.
Boris Ziger CEO of Matica, notes that “Initial testing has yielded THC levels from a low of 8.20 to a high of 14.18% for crop four. RoyalMax staff and consultants have been working to refine and enhance the quality of the crops for its THC content and its overall aroma and appearance to provide a superior experience for the end consumer. Visual site inspection of the fifth crop suggests that they may have achieved their goal.”

Matica may elect to pay the final $400,000 earlier to receive the additional 5% earlier.
