The Hydroponics Company Ltd (ASX:THC) has reached a licensing agreement with National Access Cannabis (NAC) of Canada.

The agreement gives THC immediate access to NAC’s intellectual property that will assist in the development of a professional clinic model, offering THC a unique path to market in Australia.

David Radford, chief executive, said: “Having visited their medical clinic in Ottawa, I believe that the quality processes and care that they have developed for their patients has a real and exciting place in the Australian marketplace.

“We will be working with the State Governments and Physicians to rapidly integrate this unique, quality assured program for the betterment of the Australian patients.

The agreement provides for a transfer of technology, knowledge and intellectual property for 10 years in Australia and New Zealand, with a further option to extend by 10 years.
