Valens GroWorks Corp. is a CSE-listed company with an aggressive acquisition strategy in progress, providing management, consulting, testing and support services to domestic and international licensees, as well as financing the buildout of established, fully-licensed operations.

(www.suprathc.com), a Health Canada Dealers-Licenced cannabis testing lab with an established scientific team supporting its operations, positioning to provide sector-leading analytical and proprietary services to Licensed Producers and ACMPR patients.

The Company's mission is to be the most profitable, fully-integrated Plants to Premium Products ("P2P") cannabis-focused company through the creation of a "Best Practices, R&D-backed, end-to-end Global Bioscience Platform".
