ICC Labs Inc. Completes First Indoor Harvest and Proceeds with Sowing of Outdoor High CBD Varieties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/20/17 -- Editors Note: There are five figures associated with this press release.

ICC Labs Inc. ("ICC Labs" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: ICC), a fully licensed producer and distributor of medicinal cannabinoid extracts, recreational cannabis and industrial hemp products in Uruguay, is pleased to announce the details of two recently completed milestones and its goals for fiscal 2018.

Successful Indoor Harvest

ICC Labs completed its first indoor-grown and fully organic harvest of medicinal cannabis at the Company's 21,528 sq. ft. greenhouse situated on company-owned land in the Department of Canelones, Uruguay. This achievement demonstrates ICC Labs' ability to execute its goals and successfully ramp up its operations in anticipation of becoming a leader in the production of cannabinoid extracts in Latin America and the world.

Alejandro Antalich, Chief Executive Officer of ICC Labs, commented: "Our goal is to take care of every detail in the production process, from seed to sale, to ensure that our end products are 100% traceable, of excellent quality and suited for intended use.

Further, the successful completion of ICC Labs first indoor harvest sets us up for a great 2018, as we expect ICC Labs' medicinal operations to mature from their development stage. This harvest of 4,000 plants also provides the raw material to start producing the Company's first 30-millilitre bottles of its branded cannabidiol ("CBD") oil, 'Bidiol', in a temporary laboratory situated in Uruguay's free trade zone "Science Park", which the Company will use until it completes construction of the first permanent CBD extraction laboratory in South America.

Sowing of Outdoor High-CBD Varieties

ICC Labs is a first-mover in the nascent outdoor medicinal cannabis production industry in Latin America. It is currently in the process of sowing 400 acres of seeds of high-CBD cannabis varieties in Uruguay in accordance with the Company's authorizations from the Uruguayan Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries.

The Company believes that 400 acres of planted high-CBD cannabis varieties will provide sufficient feedstock (up to 150,000 kg of dried CBD flowers) for the Company to operate its permanent extraction laboratory, once constructed, at full capacity for one year.

Alejandro Antalich, the Chief Executive Officer of ICC Labs, commented: "Our long-term vision for ICC Labs is that of a supplier of medicinal cannabinoid products to the greater Latin American market. As such, we are seeking to lay the foundations that will allow us to supply a potential market comprised of more than 400 million people in Latin America.

Our recently revised emphasis on the medicinal cannabinoids market coincides with a momentous year in certain Latin America countries as the liberalization of the medicinal cannabis market continued. This year alone, Argentina, Mexico, Peru and Paraguay joined Brazil, Uruguay and Chile in approving important pieces of legislation that will allow the use of medicinal cannabis."

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
