Recently, the Company has seen impressive growth over the course of the month of January, while simultaneously garnering significant support from the public as well as investors in the cannabis sector.
Early last week, Premier Health Group (PHGRF) (PHGI) announced that as part of its international expansion strategy, it has entered into a strategic partnership with China’a 360 Health, a healthcare subsidiary of 360 Security Technology.
