The permit specifically lets the company export its medical cannabis oils, including its drops and sprays. It previously secured the necessary import permits from Australia's Department of Health. 

“The receipt of Health Canada Export Permits enables Aleafia Health to sell high-margin, value-added cannabis products across international borders for the first time, representing a major milestone as we augment our global distribution platform,” Chairman Julian Fantino said. “With among the largest cultivation and extraction footprints in Canada coming online, we will continue to look to new international markets.”

Aleafia Health is a vertically integrated cannabis health and wellness company with operations in cultivation, health clinics and cannabis education. Its shares slipped 2.2% to C$1.33 and nearly 1% to US$1.04 on OTC Markets.
