COPENHAGEN, Denmark, 21 February 2022 – DanCann Pharma A/S (SS: DANCAN) (“DanCann Pharma” or the “Company”), a Danish company powered by cannabinoids, hereby announce that CEO Jeppe Krog Rasmussen (“Jeppe” or “Jeppe Krog Rasmussen”) has just been named one of Denmark's greatest business management talents by the leading Danish newspaper Berlingske.

Jeppe Krog Rasmussen is co-founder, CEO and member of the board of DanCann Pharma, a Danish bio-pharma company focusing on research, development, production and sales of medical cannabis and approved drugs containing cannabinoids.

The Company was founded in 2018 by fellow entrepreneurs Jeppe Krog Rasmussen and Morten Martinsen. Jeppe with a business school background and experience in investments, Morten as a relatively newly trained biologist - and both with great interest in the possibilities specified in the Danish Pilot Programme for medical cannabis.

Jeppe Krog Rasmussen comments:

- DanCann Pharma was created with a vision of being able to make a difference - a real alternative - for the many who cannot get adequate help through treatment with conventional medicine. We want to put an end to the stigma that medical cannabis and treatment with cannabinoids has carried for decades.

Jeppe Krog Rasmussen was the youngest ever Danish CEO for a listed company and has since the Company's early start been able to see the value of DanCann Pharma increase significantly. In fact, the Company's Market Cap reached an all-time-high of DKK 175 million at the end of 2021, in less than four years after the establishment.

An IPO in November 2020 and several subsequent capital injections have made it possible for the Company to press the start button in the high-tech production facilities in Biotech Pharm1 and thus start test production of the biomaterial, which in 2022 in larger volumes will be sold in selected export markets. In October 2021, DanCann Pharma acquired the wholesale company CannGros and at the same time acquired import and distribution licenses for the Danish market, which made DanCann Pharma the market leader in Denmark with the only three approved products on the market under the Danish Pilot Programme for medical cannabis.

Further comments from Jeppe Krog Rasmussen:

- The spring of 2022 will be used to obtain the necessary EU-GMP-certifications so that both production and quality systems comply with industry standards. The application for approval of the facilities was sent to the Danish Medicines Agency in January 2022 and we expect to have everything in place during mid-2022.
