VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 29, 2020 – Mountain Valley MD Holdings Inc. (the “Company” or “MVMD“) (CSE: MVMD) (FRA: 20MP) is pleased to announce that Mountain Valley MD Inc. (“Mountain Valley“) has completed the first portion of a multi-prong strategic agreement with Circadian Wellness Corp. (“Circadian“), a privately held Ontario corporation that is focused on the rapidly emerging global mushroom space.
The Company has completed the previously announced transaction pursuant to a share purchase and exchange agreement (the “SPA“) to sell its wholly owned subsidiary, Mountain Valley Medicinals Inc. (“MVM“) and its related assets which include the company’s property on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada (the “MVM Property“), which to date has not been built on, advanced or utilized for any current operations, for the amount of $1,000,000 CAD, made up of a combination of cash and a 9% equity stake in Circadian. This is part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to shift away from ownership of physical property and idle assets, towards focusing on monetizing licenses against its more lucrative technology patent portfolio.
MVMD has been working closely with Circadian on proprietary formulations for mushroom-infused products that achieved a significant increase in overall molecule efficacy with the Company’s Quicksome™ desiccated liposome technology applied across a variety of rapid dissolve oral products. Circadian plans on bringing a broad line of naturally derived mushroom products to the global marketplace, with many of the extracts coming from the old growth forests found on the MVM Property.
“Our partnership with Circadian Wellness is a perfect example of how MVMD is zeroing in on our specific value-add in the health and wellness space,” stated Dennis Hancock, President and CEO of Mountain Valley MD. “Providing our global nutraceutical, vaccine and pharmaceutical partners with unprecedented product and market advantages through strategic technology licensing agreements is core to how our business will scale exponentially.”
The internal formulation and testing work the Company has completed for Circadian across a variety of mushroom molecules has reached desired efficacy targets while using up to 1/50th of the raw mushroom extracts versus comparable tincture dosing. The Company believes the dramatic increase in bioavailability across convenient and easy-to-use rapid dissolve Quicksome™ oral delivery formats will position Circadian Wellness products as a leading contender in the rapidly growing mushroom marketplace.
MVMD and Circadian are now working to finalize the commercial licence agreement as contemplated in an executed binding letter of intent (the “LOI“) based on applying MVMD’s Quicksome™ technology to mushroom nutraceutical products, with the anticipation of completion in January, 2021.
Circadian is a privately held Ontario corporation in the business of mushroom cultivation, extraction, clinical research and development, and end-user consumer health and wellness products and retreats (www.circadianwellness.com).
