VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announced it has completed the acquisition of eight wellness beverage formulas designed to be infused with CBD and THC and one capsule product intended to treat hangovers.
The formulas have been developed to offer various health benefits, including an energy boost, hangover treatment, brain function boost, anxiety reduction, improved immunity, toxin removal and reduced inflammation. The formulations were developed in India and are based on Ayurvedic medicine using botanicals, fruit extracts and spices.
Yield Growth issued 200,000 shares and 200,000 warrants to purchase shares at $0.60 per share for the acquisition, and is obligated to pay net revenues from sales of 2%.
“We are excited to move forward with the development of our CBD and THC infused beverages as these products are expected to be fully legal in Canada within the year,” says Penny Green, Yield Growth President and CEO, “We are now in discussions with several licensed cannabis processors in Canada to manufacture our cannabis products and we are also in talks with hemp farmers and licensed cannabis producers to source CBD and THC for our products.”
Yield Growth is aggressively developing hemp and cannabis products, with over 50 SKU’s expected to hit the market in 2019. In addition to developing cannabis topicals and beverages, Yield Growth recently incorporated UJ Edibles Inc. and is developing an acquisition and licensing strategy to build a line of cannabis edibles for distribution in Canada and the United States.
According to Investopedia, edibles will mark a huge industry in Canada gearing up for launch before October 17, 2019 and edibles alone could become a billion dollar industry in the years to come. According to a February 2, 2019 article, Investopedia says to “expect a THC-infused beverage market to crop up as a subcategory of the larger edibles space. These products could include THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused juices, waters and seltzers or coffees. CBD products may be marketed as “health” drinks aimed at reducing anxiety and inflammation without generating a “high” feeling in the same way that THC does.”
According to Forbes, Mark Hunter, the president and CEO of Molson Coors, believes that the beverage market will account for up to 30% of the edibles market–up to $3 billion per year.
