Attention:          Jeff Binder, Chairman and CEO
Dear Sirs/Mesdames:
The undersigned, Canaccord Genuity Corp., as sole bookrunner (the “Agent”), understands that CLS Holdings USA, Inc.  (the “Corporation”) proposes to issue and sell up to 33,333,333 special warrants of the Corporation (the “Special Warrants”) at a price of $0.45 per Special Warrant (the “Issue Price”) on a private placement basis for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $15,000,000.00 (the “Offering”).
The Special Warrants will be duly and validly created and issued pursuant to, and governed by, a special warrant indenture (the “Special Warrant Indenture”) to be entered into effective on the Closing Date (as hereinafter defined) between the Corporation and Odyssey Trust Company (or such other agent determined  by the Corporation and the Agent), as special warrant agent in respect of the Special Warrants (the “Special Warrant Agent”).  Each Special Warrant shall be automatically exercisable (without payment of any further consideration and subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments) into units of the Corporation (the “Units”), on the date (the “Automatic Exercise Date”) that is the earlier of: (i) the date that is five Business Days (as defined herein) following the date on which the Corporation obtains a receipt from the applicable securities regulatory authorities in the Province of Ontario and each of the jurisdictions in Canada in which the Special Warrants are sold (collectively, the “Securities Commissions”) for a (final) prospectus qualifying the distribution of the Units issuable upon exercise of the Special Warrants (the “Qualification Prospectus”) intended to be no later than August 31, 2018, and (ii) the date that is four months and one day after the completion of the Proposed Acquisition (the “Time of Expiry”). Any Special Warrants which have not been exercised prior to the Time of Expiry will be exercised on behalf of the holders thereof immediately prior to the Time of Expiry.
The Corporation will use its best efforts to obtain a receipt from the Securities Commissions for the Qualification Prospectus before 60 days following the Closing Date (the “Qualification Date”); provided, however, that there is no assurance that a Qualification Prospectus will be filed or that a receipt therefor will be issued by the Securities Commissions prior to the date that is four months and one day following the Proposed Acquisition. The Corporation will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Registration Statement (as defined herein) to be filed and declared effective by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) within time periods set forth in Sections 5(a), (b) and (c) below. In the event the Corporation has not received a receipt from the Securities Commissions for the Qualifying Prospectus before the Qualification Date, each unexercised Special Warrant will, at the Time of Expiry, be exercised such that the holder will receive, for no additional consideration, 1.1 Units (instead of one Unit) (the additional

0.1 Units are collectively referred to herein as the “Penalty Units”); provided, however, that any fractional entitlement to Penalty Units will be rounded down to the nearest whole Penalty Unit. Unless the context otherwise requires, any reference herein to “Units” shall include any Penalty Units issued by the Corporation in accordance with the terms of the Special Warrant Indenture.
In addition, the Corporation will grant the Agent an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) for the purpose of satisfying over-allocations, if any, and for market stabilization purposes by the Agent. The Over-Allotment Option shall entitle the Agent to offer for purchase and sale, in the Agent’s sole discretion, an additional 5,000,000 Special Warrants at the Issue Price. The Over-Allotment Option will be exercisable in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of the Agent, at any time prior to the Closing Date (as herein defined) of the Offering.
The description of the Special Warrants herein is a summary only and is subject to the specific attributes and detailed provisions of the Special Warrants to be set forth in the Special Warrant Indenture.  In the case of any inconsistency between the description of the Special Warrants in this Agreement and their terms and conditions as set forth in the Special Warrant Indenture, the provisions of the Special Warrant Indenture will govern.
Each Unit to be issued upon exercise of the Special Warrants shall consist of one common share of the Corporation (a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant”).  Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 36 months following the date that the Common Shares of the Corporation are listed on a recognized Canadian stock exchange at an exercise price of $0.65 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment in certain events as set out in the Warrant Indenture (as herein defined).  The Warrants issuable upon exercise of the Special Warrants will be created and issued pursuant to the terms of a warrant indenture (the “Warrant Indenture”) to be entered into on the Closing Date between the Corporation and Odyssey Trust Company (the “Warrant Agent”) in its capacity as warrant agent for the Warrants.  The description of the Warrants herein is a summary only and is subject to the specific attributes and detailed provisions of the Warrants to be set forth in the Warrant Indenture.  In the case of any inconsistency between the description of the Warrants in this Agreement and their terms and conditions as set forth in the Warrant Indenture, the provisions of the Warrant Indenture will govern.
Upon and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Agent hereby agrees to act, and upon acceptance hereof, the Corporation hereby appoints the Agent, as the Corporation’s exclusive Agent, to offer for sale by way of private placement on a “commercially reasonable efforts” agency basis, without underwriter liability, the Special Warrants to be issued and sold pursuant to the Offering and the Agent agrees to arrange for purchasers of the Special Warrants in the Designated Jurisdictions (as hereinafter defined) and in those jurisdictions outside Canada where the Special Warrants may lawfully be sold pursuant to the terms and conditions hereof.
The parties acknowledge that the Special Warrants, the Compensation Warrants (as herein defined), the Common Shares and Warrants issuable upon exercise of the Special Warrants and the Compensation Warrants, as applicable, and the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants and the Compensation Warrants have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act (as hereinafter defined) or the securities laws of any state of the United States and may not be offered or sold, except pursuant to exclusions or exemptions from the registration requirements of
- 2 -

the U.S. Securities Act and the applicable laws of any state of the United States in the manner specified in this Agreement and pursuant to the representations, warranties, acknowledgments, agreements and covenants of the Corporation and the   Agent and the U.S.  Affiliates (as hereinafter defined) contained herein and in Schedule “A” hereto.  All actions to be undertaken by the Agent in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. Persons in connection with the matters contemplated herein shall be undertaken through a U.S. Affiliate (as hereinafter defined).
Upon closing of the Offering, the gross proceeds of the Offering less 50% of the Agent’s Commission and all of the Agent’s Expenses and Corporate Finance Fee payable by the Corporation pursuant to the terms of the Agency Agreement (the “Escrowed Proceeds”) and a portion of the fees (including disbursements and applicable taxes) incurred to date by Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP will be delivered to and held by an escrow agent (the “Escrow Agent”) mutually acceptable to the Corporation and the Agent and invested in an interest bearing account (the Escrowed Proceeds, together with all interest and other income earned thereon, are referred to herein as the “Escrowed Funds”).
Upon the satisfaction of the following conditions (collectively, the “Escrow Release Conditions”) the Escrow Agent shall release from the Escrowed Funds: (i) to the Agent, the remaining 50% of the Agent’s Commission, and (ii) all remaining Escrowed Funds shall be released to the Corporation:

the receipt of all regulatory, shareholder and third-party approvals, if any, required in connection with the Proposed Acquisition;  and
(iv)
the Corporation shall not be in breach or default of any of its covenants or obligations under the Special Warrant Indenture of the Agency Agreement.
If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied on or before June 30, 2018 (the “Escrow Deadline”) or, if prior to such time, the definitive agreements in respect of the Proposed Acquisition are terminated or the Corporation has advised the Escrow Agent and the Agent, or announced to the public, that the Proposed Acquisition will not be completed (in any case, a “Termination Event”, and the date upon which such event occurs, the “Termination Date”), starting on the second Business Day following the Termination Date, the Escrowed Funds plus accrued interest shall be used by the Corporation to repurchase the Special Warrants at a redemption price per Special Warrant equal to the Issue Price plus a pro rata amount of any interest accrued in respect of the Escrowed Funds to the date of redemption.  To the extent that the Escrowed Funds (plus accrued interest) are not sufficient to purchase all of the Special Warrants on the foregoing terms, the Corporation hereby agrees to contribute such amounts as are necessary to satisfy any shortfall.

Section 5.  Filing of the Registration Statement
(a)
Registration Statement. The Corporation covenants with the Agent that the Corporation shall use its best efforts to prepare and file with the SEC within forty-five (45) calendar days after the Closing Date a registration statement (on Form S-3, S-1, or other appropriate registration statement form reasonably acceptable to the Purchasers) under the U.S. Securities Act (the “Registration Statement”), at the sole expense of the Corporation (except as specifically provided in Section 5(e) hereof), in respect of the Purchaser, so as to permit a public offering and resale of the Common Shares and Warrant Shares (collectively, the “Registrable Securities”) in the United States under the U.S. Securities Act; and (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to cause a Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC as soon as possible and not later than the earlier of (a) one hundred and twenty (120) calendar days from the date of filing the Registration Statement in the event of an SEC review of the Registration Statement, and (b) the fifth trading day (day on which the OTCQB is open for quotation) (each, a “Trading Day”) following the date on which the Corporation is notified by the SEC that the Registration Statement will not be reviewed or is no longer subject to further review and comments.  The Corporation will notify the Agent of the effectiveness of the Registration Statement (the “Effective Date”) within three Trading Days.  The initial Registration Statement shall cover the resale of 100% of the Registrable Securities, for an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 (as promulgated by the SEC pursuant to the U.S. Securities Act, as such rule may be amended from time to time, or any similar rule or regulation hereafter adopted by the SEC having substantially the same purpose and effect as such rule).
(b)
If the staff of the SEC (the “Staff”) or the SEC seeks to characterize any offering pursuant to a Registration Statement filed pursuant to this Agreement as constituting an offering of securities that does not permit such Registration Statement to become effective and be used for resales by the Purchaser as selling stockholder and not as an underwriter under Rule 415 at then-prevailing market prices (and not fixed prices), or if after the filing of the initial Registration Statement with the SEC pursuant to Section 5(a), the Corporation is otherwise required by the Staff or the SEC to reduce the number of Registrable Securities included in such initial Registration Statement and, to the extent applicable, any other registration statements for the resale of securities of the Corporation by selling stockholders which may be integrated at the request of the Staff or SEC (“Related Registration Statements”), and after commercially reasonable efforts the Corporation is unable to dissuade the Staff or the SEC of its position, then the Corporation shall reduce the number of Registrable Securities to be included in such initial Registration Statement as follows, until such time as the Staff and the SEC shall so permit such Registration Statement to become effective and be used as aforesaid: (i) all Warrant Shares will be removed from the Registration Statement pro rata between the selling stockholders included in the Registration Statement and, if applicable, pro rata with common shares issuable upon exercise of warrants being registered for resale by the selling stockholders included in Related
- 16 -

 
Registration Statements and pro rata with common shares issuable upon conversion of notes or other derivative instruments of the Corporation being registered for resale by the selling stockholders included in Related Registration Statements to the extent permitted by the registration rights of such selling stockholders and (ii) following removal of all Warrant Shares and, if applicable, all common shares issuable upon exercise of warrants contained in Related Registration Statements, all Common Shares will be cut back pro rata between the selling stockholders included in the Registration Statement and, if applicable, pro rata with any common shares being registered for resale by selling stockholders in Related Registration Statements to the extent permitted by the registration rights of such selling stockholders.
(c)
In the event of any reduction in Registrable Securities pursuant to Section 5(b) above, then, in relation to any Common Shares not covered by the initial Registration Statement, the Corporation shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause its legal counsel to deliver an opinion or such other documentation as may reasonably be required to effect sales of the Common Shares under Rule 144 and cover the costs related to such legal opinions.  In relation to any Warrant Shares not covered by the initial Registration Statement, the Corporation shall file no later than 6 months following the effectiveness of the initial Registration Statement, one or more new Registration Statements, in accordance with Sections 5(a) and 5(b) until (i) such time as all Warrant Shares required by Section 5(a) have been included in Registration Statements that have been declared effective and the prospectus contained therein is available for use by the Purchasers or (ii) all such Warrant Shares can be sold pursuant to the provisions of Rule 144.  Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, the Corporation’s obligations to register Registrable Securities (and any related conditions) shall be qualified as necessary to comport with any requirement of the SEC or the Staff as addressed in Section 5(b).
(d)
The Corporation will use reasonable commercial efforts to maintain the Registration Statement or post-effective amendment filed under this Section 8 effective under the U.S. Securities Act until the earlier of the date (i) all of the Registrable Securities have been sold pursuant to such Registration Statement or Rule 144, if available, or (ii) three years from the Effective Date (the “Effectiveness Period”).
(e)
All fees, disbursements and out-of-pocket expenses and costs incurred by the Corporation in connection with the preparation and filing of the Registration Statement and in complying with applicable securities and “blue sky” laws (including, without limitation, all attorneys’ fees of the Corporation, registration, qualification, notification and filing fees, printing expenses, escrow fees, blue sky fees and expenses and the expense of any special audits incident to or required by any such registration) shall be borne by the Corporation. The Corporation shall qualify any of the Registrable Securities for sale in such states as the Purchasers reasonably designate.  However, the Corporation shall not be required to qualify in
- 17 -

any state which will require an escrow or other restriction relating to the Corporation and/or the sellers, or which will require the Corporation to qualify to do business in such state or require the Corporation to file therein any general consent to service of process.  The Corporation at its expense will supply the Agent with copies of the applicable Registration Statement and the prospectus included therein and other related documents in such quantities as may be reasonably requested by the Agent.
(f)
If at any time or from time to time after the Effective Date, the Corporation notifies the Agent in writing of the existence of a Potential Material Event, the Agent shall not offer or sell any Registrable Securities or engage in any other transaction involving or relating to Registrable Securities, from the time of the giving of notice with respect to a Potential Material Event until the Agent receives written notice from the Corporation that such Potential Material Event either has been disclosed to the public or no longer constitutes a Potential Material Event.  If a Potential Material Event shall occur prior to the date a Registration Statement is required to be filed, then the Corporation’s obligation to file such Registration Statement shall be delayed without penalty for not more than thirty (30) calendar days.  The Corporation must, if lawful, give the Agent notice in writing at least two Trading Days prior to the first day of the blackout period.

- 52 -

 
proceedings, investigations or claims (but not including any amount for lost profits) and the reasonable fees and expenses of their counsel that may be incurred (collectively, the “Losses”) that may be suffered by, imposed upon or asserted against an Indemnified Party as a result of, in respect of, connected with or arising out of any third party action, suit, proceeding, investigation or claim that may be made or threatened against any Indemnified Party or in enforcing this indemnity (collectively the “Claims”) insofar as the Claims relate to, are caused by, result from, arise out of or are based upon, directly or indirectly, from or in consequence of the performance of professional services rendered to the Corporation by the Indemnified Parties hereunder or otherwise in connection with the Offering, excluding any Losses or Claims resulting from fraud, gross negligence or wilful misconduct, whether performed before or after the date hereof, or otherwise in connection with the matters referred to in this Agreement, including, without limitation:
(i)
any material breach of or default under any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of the Corporation in this Agreement or the failure of the Corporation to comply with any of its obligations hereunder;
(ii)
any information or statement (except any information or statement relating solely to an Indemnified Party and provided in writing by the Indemnified Party for inclusion in such document) contained in any of the Offering Documents or any other document or material filed or delivered by or on behalf of the Corporation pursuant to this Agreement being or being alleged to be a misrepresentation or untrue or any omission or alleged omission to state in those documents any material fact required to be stated in those documents or necessary to make any of the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances in which they were made;

any order made or any inquiry, investigation or proceeding instituted, threatened or announced by any court, securities regulatory authority, stock exchange or by any other competent authority, based upon any untrue statement, omission or misrepresentation or alleged untrue statement, omission or misrepresentation (except a statement, omission or misrepresentation relating solely to an Indemnified Party provided in writing by the Indemnified Party) contained in any of the Offering Documents or any other document or material filed or delivered by or on behalf of the Corporation pursuant to this Agreement, preventing or restricting the trading in or the sale or distribution of the Common Shares;
(iv)
the Corporation not complying with any requirement of the Canadian Securities Laws or U.S. Securities Laws, including the Corporation’s non-compliance with any statutory requirement to make any document available for inspection; or
(v)
any failure or alleged failure to make timely disclosure of a material change by  the Corporation, where such failure or alleged failure occurs during the
- 53 -

 
Offering or during the period of distribution or where such failure relates to the Offering or the Special Warrants and may give or gives rise to any liability under any Law in any jurisdiction which is in force on the date of this Agreement.
(b)
The Corporation agrees to waive any right it may have of first requiring an Indemnified Party to proceed against or enforce any other right, power, remedy or security or claim payment from any other person before claiming under this indemnity.

The Corporation will not, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent, settle, compromise, consent to the entry of any judgment in or otherwise seek to terminate any Claim in respect of which indemnification may be sought hereunder (whether or not any Indemnified Party is a party thereto) unless the Corporation has acknowledged in writing that the Indemnified Parties are entitled to be indemnified in respect of such Claim and such settlement, compromise, consent or termination includes an unconditional release  of each Indemnified Party from any liabilities arising out of such Claim without any admission of negligence, misconduct, liability or responsibility by or on behalf of any Indemnified Party.

- 54 -

 
authority  or any stock exchange or other entity having regulatory authority, either domestic or foreign, shall investigate the Corporation and/or the Indemnified Parties shall be required to testify in connection therewith or shall be required to respond to procedures designed to discover information regarding, in connection with, or by reason of the performance of professional services rendered to the Corporation by the Agent, the Indemnified Parties shall have the right to employ their own counsel in connection therewith, and the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel as well as the reasonable costs (including an amount to reimburse the Agent for time spent by the Indemnified Parties in connection therewith) and out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Indemnified Parties in connection therewith shall be paid by the Corporation as they occur.
(g)
To the extent that any Indemnified Party is not a party to this Agreement, the Agent shall obtain and hold the right and benefit of the above-noted indemnity in trust for and on behalf of such Indemnified Party.
(h)
