Vancouver, B.C., January 18, 2018 – MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE: MYM) (the “Company” or “MYM”) is pleased to announce that it and its subsidiary, Sublime Culture Inc., have entered into a consulting agreement with Sasha Przytyk, who will act as Master Breeder at the Sublime facility in Laval, Québec.
As Master Breeder, Mr. Przytyk will be responsible for developing a comprehensive Cannabis seed breeding and production program for Sublime Culture and MYM. His initial focus will be to search out and select source seed varieties from breeders and reputable international seed houses. In parallel, Sasha will design and conduct an ongoing research program, to evaluate and analyze seed strains under varying conditions. In the long term, Sasha promises to create improved, proprietary varieties through selection and hybridization, to supply the Canadian and international cannabis seed market.
Sasha has extensive experience in the medicinal cannabis and horticultural sector. He is a designated cannabis grower, licensed through Health Canada’s MMAR and AMCPR programs since 2009. Sasha was the first private recipient of a Health Canada Industrial Hemp Research license in Québec. He is currently the owner of a cannabis seed brand-management company, Shazam Farms International Inc.
Sasha has extensive experience as a guest speaker and delegate at international cannabis conferences and symposiums. He is also an accomplished publisher in the field, writing numerous articles on hemp and its cultivation.
Sasha established “The Joint Doctor” and “High-Bred Seeds” as world-renowned seed brands. Through the revolutionary strain “Lowryder,” he introduced the concept of autoflowering cannabis. Lowryder is recognized worldwide as the first 100% autoflowering variety and The Joint Doctor has been dubbed the “Father of Autoflowering.” Widely adopted by seed companies today, autoflowering strains now represent approximately 40% of the European seed market.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sasha to the MYM team as Master Breeder. His experience in the hemp, cannabis, and horticultural industry is unparalleled,” said Rob Gietl, MYM’s CEO. “Sasha’s innovation in seed technology will prove to be a valuable asset to the shareholders of MYM as growing cannabis becomes increasingly accepted and adopted around the world.”
Pursuant to the five-year consulting agreement, which is with Mr. Przytyk’s company, Shazam Farms, Sasha will receive a signing bonus of $25,000, paid in 7,062 MYM common shares at a deemed price per share of $3.54.
