NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

HempFusion Wellness Inc. (TSX:CBD.U) (OTCQB:CBDHF) (“HempFusion” or the “Company”), a leading health and wellness company offering premium probiotic supplements and products containing CBD, announces that it intends to amend the terms of its previously announced brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of convertible debenture units (the “Units”) led by Research Capital Corporation (the “Agent”) as sole agent and sole bookrunner.

Pursuant to the Company’s press release dated March 1, 2022, the Company announced its intention to offer up to 3,000 Units at the issue price of US$1,000 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to US$3.0 million, with each Unit being comprised of: (i) US$1,000 principal amount of 10% senior secured convertible debentures of the Company (the “Convertible Debentures”) which will be convertible into common shares of the Company (each a “Common Share”) at a conversion price of US$0.15 per Common Share, subject to adjustment in certain events (the “Conversion Price”) and maturing on the date that is three (3) years from the date the Units are issued (the “Maturity Date”); and (ii) 3,333 common share purchase warrants of the Company (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of US$0.20 per Common Share (the “Warrant Exercise Price”) until the Maturity Date.

The proposed amendments to the terms of the Offering are as follows:

- The Company will offer up to 2,233 Units for gross proceeds of up to US$2,233,000, plus a 15% over-allotment option granted to the Agent (up to an additional 335 Units); - The number of Warrants included in a Unit will be increased to 5,000 Warrants; - The Conversion Price will be amended to US$0.10 per Common Shares; and - The Warrant Exercise Price will be amended to US$0.14 per Common Share.

On March 18, 2022, the Company issued an initial tranche of Units (the “Existing Units”) under the Offering. The terms of the Existing Units will be amended in accordance with the amendments to the Offering noted above. Holders of the Existing Units will be asked to provide written consent to the amendments to the Convertible Debentures and Warrants contained in the Existing Units. In accordance with Toronto Stock Exchange policy, the amendment to the exercise price of the Warrants contained in the Existing Units will take effect on April 27, 2022. In addition, the Company issued broker warrants to the Agent in connection with the closing of the purchase of the Existing Units. The Company intends to amend the terms of those broker warrants to amend the exercise price to US$0.11 per Common Share, with such amendment taking effect on April 26, 2022. None of the Existing Units or the Broker Warrants previously issued were issued to insiders of the Company.

The Company has agreed to pay the Agent, upon closing of the Offering, a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering (including in respect of any exercise of the over-allotment option), subject to a reduction for certain orders on a “president’s list”. In addition, the Company will issue such amount of broker warrants equal to 7.0% of the number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures (based on the Conversion Price) exercisable for one common share at the price of US$0.11 per Common Share.

All other terms of the Units, including the terms of the Convertible Debentures and the Warrants remain the same.

The above noted amendments are subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
