About True Leaf

Founded in 2013, True Leaf has two main operating divisions: True Leaf Medicine Inc. and True Leaf Pet Inc. The Company’s goal is to provide federally-approved cannabis products that will be sold across Canada and the United States. True Leaf Medicine Inc. was launched in July 2013 to become a licensed producer of medicinal cannabis for the Canadian market. True Leaf Medicine Inc. has been granted approval by Health Canada to build its grow facility and will be subject to a Health Canada security inspection upon completion to allow for the cultivation, manufacture, and distribution of cannabis products. Currently, True Leaf does not have a license to produce cannabis.

Established in 2015, True Leaf Pet Inc. markets hemp-based products for the pet industry. The Company launched the True Hemp™ pet supplement line in Canada, the United States, and Europe, becoming one of the first hemp-based pet product lines to be marketed worldwide. True Hemp™ North American products are free of CBD and THC.

Risks of Investment in True Leaf

An investment in True Leaf has a high degree of risk including common to early stage companies such as small equity market capitalization and public float, which may impair the liquidity of this investment.  The Company can make no assurances about the success of its products, or its licensing or marketing efforts; consequently investors in True Leaf may lose some or all of their investments. True Leaf does not have a license to produce cannabis. Cannabis, marijuana, and any products containing THC and CBD are illegal in the United States of America, notwithstanding laws of several states to the contrary.  Further, transportation of such products across state lines or across national boundaries remains a Federal Offense in the United States of America, as well as the use of any federally chartered financial institution for transmittal or deposit of funds related to the sale of such products. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that True Leaf will receive a license to produce cannabis from Health Canada, and even if it were to receive such a license, there can be no assurance that it can import its products into the United States for market or sale, or to repatriate the proceeds of such sales for the benefit of investors in this offering.
