shareholders with the following update on the progress of its investee company, 
Liberty Herbal Technologies ("LHT").  In addition, the Company is announcing a

investment opportunities as they arise. 
hapac® Update 
Ananda owns 15% of LHT, the 100% owner of hapac®, a patent pending technology 
for vaping medicinal cannabis.  Ananda has the right of first refusal to 
finance the growth of the company for the next two years, potentially 
increasing Ananda's stake.  Following the investment, Melissa Sturgess, 
Executive Director of Ananda, was appointed  a director of LHT. 
The Company is pleased to report that production of LHT's vaporisers and hap® 
consumable packs (containing 4 hapac® sachets of 0.25g of medicinal cannabis 
each) has commenced in China.  The hapac® maker machine is being manufactured 
and will be delivered direct to Italy.  Please see 
or for images of the hapac® vaporiser, consumable packs, hapac® 
sachets and hap® point of sale materials. 
Three popular strains of CBD have been chosen for the launch of the product 
range.  The CBD contained sachets will be manufactured by Easyjoint in Italy, 
under licence from LHT.  First sales will be through Easyjoint's store in 
Milan.  Please visit 
Convertible Loan Facility 
The Company also announces that it has signed a GBP300,000 convertible loan 
facility agreement with Charles Morgan and Melissa Sturgess, both Directors of 
the Company (the "Loan"). 
The Loan carries an interest rate of 10 per cent per annum, can be drawn down 
in tranches of GBP10,000 and is repayable on the second anniversary of the first 
drawdown. Any amount drawn down on the Loan can be converted into ordinary 
shares of 0.2 pence in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a price of 0.75 pence 
per share, a premium to the current share price. 
The loan facility ensures the Company is able to take advantage of any 
significant investment opportunities that may arise, without delay.  No funds 
have yet been drawn down under the Loan facility.
