LEAMINGTON, ON,

Dec. 4, 2017 /CNW/ - Aphria Inc. ("Aphria" or the "Company") (TSX: APH and US OTC: APHQF) today announced that it has entered into an agreement to become a medical cannabis supplier to Shoppers Drug Mart.

Subject

to Health Canada's approval of Shoppers Drug Mart's application to be a licensed producer, under the terms of the agreement the Company will supply Shoppers Drug Mart with Aphria-branded medical cannabis products. It is expected the products will be sold online, as Canadian regulations currently restrict the sale of medical cannabis in retail pharmacies.

"We have an impeccable record cultivating and producing high-quality, medical-grade cannabis," said Vic Neufeld, CEO of Aphria. "These traits make us a strong partner for an organization looking to serve and support Canadian patients."

CONFERENCE CALL ON DECEMBER 4, 2017

Management will hold a conference call on December 4, 2017 at 5:30 pm ET to discuss the supplier agreement between Aphria and Shoppers Drug Mart. Interested participants may take part by dialing (888) 231-8191. A replay of this call will be available until January 4, 2018 by dialing (855) 859-2056 with the passcode 6395256.
