Sep. 28, 2018

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan (September 28, 2018): CB3 Life Sciences Ltd. (“CB3” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of its strategic acquisition of certain intellectual property pertaining to a research and development program focused on Interleukin 37 (“IL-37”).

Development of the IL-37 intellectual property has been ongoing since 2012, led by CB3’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Larry Holbrook. Research into IL-37 is conducted worldwide, has received grants from a world-class Canadian university, and continues to show exceptional promise.

The Company is confident that this newly acquired intellectual property can be further exploited and used to develop breakthrough protein-based phyto-therapeutics for treatment of various forms of inflammation. As a novel anti-inflammatory drug candidate, CB3 believes it could be used in combination with current conventional therapies for treatment of several inflammatory diseases. The most noteworthy and challenging of these inflammatory conditions are rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, multiple sclerosis and psoriasis.

CB3 issued 674,834 common shares as consideration for the acquisition.
