A TSX video was made to honor the Company’s selection that provides more insight into its 2018 dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2) foliar spray prospects for faster plant growth. It can be found under Investors – Investor Materials at www.blueoceannutra.ca as well as an updated February 2018 Corporate Presentation and Business Plan ex-forecasts.

About BlueOcean (TSX VENTURE:BOC)
BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. is a Canadian publicly-listed company (TSX VENTURE:BOC).
The Company’s mission is to accelerate all value plant growth naturally, safely, and economically using its patented advanced CO2 technologies.
The Company’s sole focus is working with its plant grower partners and agri-industrial partners in proving and adopting its CO2 technologies for specific growers’ plant yield needs.
The CO2 technologies work by transferring CO2 gas into water and foliar spraying for use across the entire plant leaf surface area, which is a semi permeable membrane. The dissolved concentrated CO2 then penetrates leaf’s surface area naturally like concentrated nicotine dissolves through human skin into the bloodstream from a nicotine patch.
Foliar spraying natural nutrients and chemicals on plant leaves has been used for over 60 years by millions of indoor and outdoor plant growers. To date, outdoor growers have not had any way to enhance plant CO2 gas uptake for faster growth.
The indoor method of CO2 gassing to enhance plant yields has also been used for over 60 years. However, over 50% of the CO2 gas is typically lost and becomes a greenhouse gas. Current greenhouse CO2 gassing levels used are not ideal for worker health and safety.
The Company’s safer CO2 technologies can be used by both greenhouse and outdoor plant growers with minimal CO2 gas lost when CO2 is applied by foliar spray.
Target markets for CO2 foliar spray are the global retail food market at $8 trillion per year (Plunkett Mar 28 2017), the global retail non-food plant market at an estimated $1 trillion per year of which $770 billion/y is tobacco (British American Tobacco website) and the high value legal retail cannabis market that may be $50 billion per year by 2022 (Bay St Analyst estimates).
The Company’s CO2 technologies are commercially proven, scalable and easily adopted into existing irrigation systems. The economic revenue model is compelling to its grower and agri-industrial partners.
