VANCOUVER, May 8, 2017 /CNW/ - THC BioMed Intl Ltd. ("THC" or the "Company") (CSE:THC) announces that it has purchased Clone Shipper LLC for USD $1,000,000. The Issuer will now add the Clone Shipper Business to its existing operations.
Clone Shipper is a U.S. based company, specializing in packaging products for the transportation of live plants.
We are extremely pleased to have completed this very strategic purchase of Clone Shipper. THC intends to continue building these great products in the USA.
"The Global demand for securely shipping live plants is increasing with the legalization of Medical Cannabis. This is the early formation of our presence within the international Cannabis market place. We look forward being a part of every Cannabis live plant that is shipped Globally. We will vigorously protect any infringements on our patents and continue to register patents worldwide "commented John Miller, THC BioMed Intl CEO and President.
THC management believes that Clone Shipper is currently the only device that meets Canadian and Federal International laws governing the transportation of controlled, live plants.
In recognition of the demand we have launched a separate product called "THC Clone Shipper" that is specifically designed to meet regulations surrounding the transportation of controlled substance plant.
We applaud the Canadian government on its move to legalize Recreational Marihuana. THC looks forward to supporting Recreational home growing once Recreational Marihuana is legalized. Home growing is expected to play a major role within the implementation of legalization, as it will dramatically alleviate the supply shortage anticipated upon legalization. While it is recognized that not all participants will have the desire to grow at home, we believe a sizable amount of the Canadian population will participate in Recreational home growing and BioMed has begun expansions in anticipation.
"We have worked hard to produce a product that will grow under the most stressful conditions. Furthermore, our strains have been bred to ensure that the end product has a distinct herbal odor, and burns a less pungent marihuana smell.
"We want to deliver the most potent, cleanest, clearest product in every aspect" stated John Miller. We look forward to introducing our THC Sativa Strain. It is a landrace strain with high levels of THCV. THCV a Cannabinoid that is rarely spoken about or researched, it is only found in certain strains, and THC believes that this cannabinoid will become very important in the future.
THC BioMed currently ships the most live Cannabis plants in Canada, and has the widest selection of strains available.
THC BioMed anticipates introducing its Dried marihuana products for sale at $420 per gram by Q3. THC BioMed has structured pricing to reflect its mandate of providing patients with accessibility to medicinal cannabis.
