LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Sep 12, 2017) – Freedom Leaf, Inc, (OTCQB: FRLF) The Marijuana Legalization Company ™, is pleased to announce that it is collaborating with two privately owned European companies for product development and global marketing to provide a variety of Freedom Leaf branded products with Rare Cannabinoids, CBG, (Cannabigerol) in addition to its popular CBD, Cannabidiol.
Freedom Leaf, Inc, CEO Clifford J. Perry announced, “These new products, along with our hempOLOGY brand products, will put Freedom Leaf at the forefront of the therapeutic cannabinoid industry.”
Perry has hailed Freedom Leaf Iberia licensee, Federico Pando, for his work in bringing these new products to the public. Freedom Leaf is staking its claim to foreign markets starting with Europe with plans to be in Central and South America as well as other countries around the world. The market for Hemp is expanding in many countries even faster than the United States. Serious revenue is available from exploring these different markets around the world.
Mr. Pando also was instrumental in Freedom Leaf’s recently signed Letter of Intent to acquire the Spanish organic hemp grower, Green Market Europe, and the acquisition of the Spanish websites, LaMarihuana.com, the oldest and most popular Spanish language cannabis website, and Marihuana-Medicinal.com, the biggest Spanish language medical cannabis site.
Mr. Pando explained that the CBG (Cannabigerol) crystal and other cannabinoids can be added to a variety of products, including the transdermal patches that Freedom Leaf is developing in collaboration with a privately owned European firm with more than 20 years’ experience in transdermal technology.
The Cannabigerol crystal has a 97% purity and comes with Food Grade HACCP, Hazard analysis and critical control points and GMP, Good Manufacturing Practices certification. The plant comes from an EU Certified Industrial Hemp strain and CBG is not psychoactive; it can be sold over the counter in many countries.
The Hemp strain used has the rarest chemotaxonomy (Level 4) which only produces CBG.
Although no medical claims are being made for any of the products, in various studies there are indications that Cannabigerol may relieve pain, reduce seizures and convulsions, slow bacterial growth in certain species, reduce inflammation systemically, induce sleep, inhibit cancer cell growth, stimulate the growth of new brain cells and promotes bone growth. Some of the other conditions under study include glaucoma, inflammatory bowel diseases, anti-inflammatory disorders, epilepsy and chronic pain.
CBG samples have already been shipped and delivered to product development facilities in Colorado and California.
Freedom Leaf, Inc. is currently collaborating with Spanish scientists isolating other rare cannabinoids. Some of the ongoing research includes strains with THCV, Tetrahydrocannabivarin, which suppresses appetite and CBC, Cannabichromene, which has been shown to aid with depression.
Pando stated, “Our transdermal patches will have a very competitive price and be sold over the counter and online worldwide. We expect to have an aggressive online marketing campaign to get the attention of mainstream consumers who have not been cannabis users.”
The transdermal patches will be available in 2018, but other products containing CBG and some Freedom Leaf branded rare cannabinoids may be available in the fourth quarter of this year.
Freedom Leaf´s hempOLOGY brand is already marketing its unique combination of CBD enhanced Ayurvedic herbs in vaping cartridges and in topicals. Other cannabinoids may be added to the hempOLOGY product line.
ABOUT NuAxon Tech, the manufacturer of large capacity CO2 Supercritical Extraction units, has 17 years of experience in extraction process technology and manufacture of large capacity extraction units over other comparable units, which will serve as a huge plus for Freedom Leaf Inc.
According to NuAxon Tech, CO2 extraction is “the best method of extracting therapeutic compounds from a plant. When CO2 is captured and compressed it becomes a lipophilic solvent. It is exceptional and efficient at retrieving the oils and fats from plants, some herbal extractions are as concentrated as 250 to 1.” With proprietary “high flow rate pump” reducing processing time to “as low as 90 minutes per batch,” NuAxon’s CO2 Supercritical Extraction unit can deliver a much higher output than competitive brands.
