Chemesis International Inc. Acquires Intellectual Property for High-Quality Cannabis Extraction
Chemesis acquires the IP and physical extraction equipment for a methodology that utilizes a low-temperature process to produce a high concentration cannabis oil that preserves all constituents and phytocannabinoids
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Chemesis International Inc. (CSE: CSI) (OTC: CADMF) (FRA: CWAA) (the “Company” or “Chemesis”), announces it has acquired intellectual property (“IP”) and the physical equipment for an extraction methodology to preserve all of the phytocannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis utilizing a low-temperature process to create “live resin”. The method will allow the Company to produce a unique variety of finished goods such as tinctures, shatters, vapes, oils and other consumer products that can be varied to achieve desired potencies of different cannabinoids and terpenes.
The Company will relocate the extraction assets, which are currently situated in a licensed facility in San Diego County, CA, to its extraction facility in Cathedral City, CA. The sales staff will be retained and integrated into the Chemesis operations with the focus expanding to the entire family of brands. This will provide the Company a third extraction method to complement its current ethanol and butane hash oil (BHO) methods. The low temperature extraction will preserve 100% of the natural cannabinoids, increasing yields and eliminating many of the operating costs normally associated with other method processes such as winterization, filtration and evaporation.
This new methodology will allow the Company to bring forward a variety of new products to the marijuana and hemp markets that have not been altered by high heat or solvents, which can degrade the quality of cannabinoids. With this transaction, the Company has initial monthly purchase orders in excess of $200,000USD.
“The new IP we have acquired will allow Chemesis to manufacture products for consumers that will be among the highest quality and potency in the market,” said CEO, Edgar Montero. “Chemesis intends to leverage this technology throughout our family of brands to target consumers that are looking for both high quality and cannabinoid entourage effects. The Company also believes the addition of this IP showcases our continued focus on products that are leading the industry in both extraction methodology and product innovation.”
Under the terms of this partnership, Chemesis will issue 1,597,633 shares priced at a deemed value of $1.69CDN. The stock issued is subject to 36-month lock-up/leak-out guidelines.
