CARSON CITY, NV, Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Pharmagreen Biotech, Inc., (OTCM: PHBI) (“Company”) provided commentary on the burgeoning cannabis production market following its recent legalization October 17, 2018. Pharmagreen CEO Peter Wojcik provided the following observations in conjunction with how the Company believes its Cannabis Biotech Complex, currently under construction in B.C., Canada, will help solve the infancy stage production issues facing the sector.
“Recently published news indicates that several leading producers of cannabis have experienced significant production issues, in particular mildew and mold, causing lost crop cycles and the inability to meet Health Canada production quality guidelines. We believe through our proprietary tissue culture process our resulting cannabis starter plantlets for sale to licensed producers, which are healthy, disease fee and pest free, will enable producers to yield high quality crops that meet all production guidelines and contribute positively to maintaining a healthy and regular supply to the public. Utilizing our starter plantlets will also enable growers to maximize their production space by eliminating the need for mothers and clone rooms, thereby driving potential revenue growth, increasing their flowering space and resulting revenue potential. We provide value added services and products to the licensed cannabis industry.”
Mr. Wojcik added, “We are also pleased to provide shareholders a scientific update on the Company’s all female plantlets for CBD isolate production as well as the consulting services to be performed at the planned Cannabis Biotech Complex. We will provide cultivation consulting services focused on the development of optimal nutrient feeding schedules for Pharmagreen’s proprietary strains, as well as that of our client’s strains, to greatly reduce the risk of potential nutrient lockup, stunting the plants’ growth and causing a reduction in plant size and yield. For growers seeking additional protection from potential loss of proprietary strains due to plant theft or plant death or for long term off-site genetics preservation in a lab environment, the Biotech Complex will offer the proprietary service of live tissue cultures storage utilizing Pharmagreen’s cold storage technology.
“The Company is also excited about its ‘CBD Dana’ strain, all female plantlets for CBD Isolate production. ‘CBD Dana’ hemp plants can yield close to 200 kg of CBD Isolate in one acre, as opposed to planting from hemp seed which yields approximately 7 KG of CBD Isolate per acre. ‘CBD Dana’ strain is a hemp plant with 14% CBD and less than .3% THC, third party lab verified, which also allows for International shipping of plantlets without the restrictions currently in place for marijuana plants. The world’s largest CBD market is in the United States and as emphasized by the FDA, CBD consumer products are to be derived from hemp plants, making our ‘CBD Dana’ strain, with female plants only, the optimal CBD farming model.”
Mr. Wojcik concluded, “Given the growth of the cannabis market and its inherent learning curve there is a clear need for a specialized company to supply the growers with the highest quality tissue cultured plantlets, and other beneficial services to consistently maximize each and every crop. We believe in conjunction with our strategic partner Alliance Growers Inc., (CSE: ACG) (OTCQB:ALGWF.QB), our shared vision and infrastructure will entrench us as a leader in the cannabis production sector while we remain focused on building long term shareholder value.”
