Cannabis Wheaton Congratulates Its Partner Beleave Inc.

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 19, 2017) - Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. (TSX VENTURE: CBW) ("Cannabis Wheaton", "CW", or the "Company") is pleased to report that First Access Medical Inc., the wholly-owned subsidiary of CW's partner Beleave Inc. ("Beleave") (CSE - BE) has been granted a cultivation license under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the "ACMPR"). Beleave becomes CW's fifth licensed producer partner.

Chuck Rifici said "We want to congratulate Beleave on this major milestone and achievement! The Beleave team are an incredible group of professionals and industry leaders and we could not be happier for them on obtaining their cultivation license. In addition to their fantastic cultivation facility, the Beleave team has consistently demonstrated leadership in promoting the advancement of cannabinoid based science by entering into research partnerships to investigate cannabinoid purification methods, cannabinoid genetics and potential therapeutic uses of cannabinoids for pain management. Today we celebrate Beleave's success and look forward to working with Beleave as we execute Cannabis Wheaton's business plan of creating a world-class, risk mitigated financing and distribution platform."

DEAL TERMS WITH BELEAVE

The parties will work cooperatively to identify an appropriate second site to be acquired and developed by a newly formed special purpose subsidiary of Beleave ("NewCo"). The proposed second site is expected to be located in Ontario and will be designed to accommodate an estimated 200,000 square feet of cultivation space (the "Proposed Site").

Once such the Proposed Site and construction budget for the new facility have been agreed on by the parties, CW will provide, among other things: (i) up to $5 million to fund the purchase of the Proposed Site; and (ii) all necessary funding to complete the construction of the new facility. In return, CW will receive a 49% equity interest in NewCo and 50% of the proceeds (net of certain costs) of future wholesale or retail sales completed by NewCo.

The agreement remains subject to a number of conditions precedent, including availability of financing on the part of CW, receipt by Beleave of applicable Health Canada and other regulatory approvals, due diligence by the parties, execution of a definitive agreement and the ability of the parties to agree on future construction budgets and timelines.

1 These are estimates based on current funding commitments and assume that CW has provided the streaming partner with the aggregate contribution amount set out in each streaming agreement. Some agreements have floating valuations which can impact ownership percentages at time of funding. 2 Represents equity in a new applicant.

"Early-Stage" indicates that the streaming partner's application is currently being reviewed internally by such streaming partner to determine whether it will amend its current application for resubmission pursuant to the ACMPR, acquire an existing LP or enter into a joint venture with an existing LP whereby such existing LP will use the streaming partner's current facility and related application materials to submit an LP application pursuant to the ACMPR.

"Pre-Affirmation" indicates that the LP applicant has yet to successfully proceed past the "Review" stage of the licensing processing. Once an LP applicant completes the "Review" stage of the licensing process, Health Canada will issue an "Affirmation Letter" which requires among other things, the LP applicant to provide an affirmative response to Health Canada that all necessary security features are present, installed and operational at the proposed facility. Upon providing an affirmation response to Health Canada, a Pre-Licensing Inspection will be scheduled for the proposed facility.

CORPORATE DEVELOPMENTS

Cannabis Wheaton also wishes to disclose that is in the final stage of negotiation with a potential streaming partner who is currently a licensed producer with a cultivation and sales license pursuant to the ACMPR. Should a transaction be consummated, the potential streaming partner would become Cannabis Wheaton's 15th streaming partner and sixth licensed producer.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD
