About The Canadian Bioceutical Corporation

BCC, formerly Allegiance Equity Corporation, is an Ontario corporation that, for over two decades has been developing unique standardized mass-market nutraceutical products for the treatment of common ailments where present pharmaceutical treatments and over-the-counter products fail to meet the needs of patients. BCC has targeted markets having clearly identified product deficiencies and dissatisfied consumers afflicted with a variety of medical conditions. BCC obtains regulatory approval and patents for these unique compounds and formulations and may produce and distribute or license its products for royalty revenues.

BCC's principal brands are CinG-X™, Reliéva™, and Psorberine™ and FertaMax™. Additionally BCC, through its wholly-owned subsidiary BioCannabis Products Ltd. and, subsequent to receiving its MMPR license from Health Canada and the potential revision of the related regulations, intends to develop and market a series of new cannabis-based branded medicinal products to address this rapidly-evolving market.

Investors should be aware that companies cannot legally conduct a medical marijuana business without a license from Health Canada and that there is significant time and cost required to obtain such a license. As a publicly-traded company publicizing its intention to enter the medical marijuana industry, BCC urges potential investors in any company in this sector, to become familiar with the required resources and the related risks, costs implications and time required before a company will be able to begin licensed operations. There is no assurance that any company announcing its intent to enter the medical marijuana industry will be successful in obtaining a license or in creating shareholder value.
