MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc. (OTCPINK: FITX), a nutritional supplement company focusing on active lifestyles, today announced its entrance into the Medical Marijuana Sector via Hemp Protein Powder, our Naturals Line, Hemp-plex (www.HempNorthamerica.com) and Chia-plex (www.ChiaNorthamerica.com).
Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc. being headquartered in Michigan, a marijuana "friendly" state which created the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP), a state registry program. The state law provides protections for the medical use of marijuana and allows participants to legally possess, use, buy and grow medical marijuana. We are aggressively looking to acquire licenses and brands in the industrial hemp and medical marijuana industry in order to capitalize on this growing market sector.
Jeff Thomas states, "With thousands of people in our home state and other participating states nationwide, it seemed a perfect fit to launch Hemp-plex Chocolate Brownie flavor to fulfill their nutritional needs. Creating partnerships in the Medicinal marijuana sector may open doors into the distribution and launch of other infused medical marijuana products which will be produced in a GMP Certified and FDA Compliant factory the same one used for all of the Creative Edge Nutrition products."
According to the Long Beach Business Journal in their article titled "The Business of Medical Marijuana" the medical cannabis industry alone was worth about 1.7 billion in 2011, according to a report by the financial news firm See Change Strategy. That figure could reach nearly $9 billion nationwide in five years, as more states are likely to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes.
One of the top reasons to potentially switch to hemp protein powder is that it's not made from a processed milk product. This is also great news if you're lactose intolerant, have difficult digesting whey or casein protein powders. Speaking of digestion, hemp contains a large amount of fiber along with its protein content, making it about as natural of a protein powder as you'll find. It has a complete protein source, includes all 9 essential amino acids, high in Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
The Chia seed is an abundant source of omega-3 oils, protein, antioxidants and dietary fiber. Flavor-neutral chia absorbs liquid and forms a gel, which helps to support hydration and tame the appetite. Chia cuts cravings for food, reports suggest that Chia seeds may help weight loss, by slowing the speed our bodies break down carbohydrates, which stabilizes blood sugar levels, and even by blocking some uptake of calories.
Bill Chaaban commented, "While Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc. was exhibiting at Expo West in Anaheim the buzz of the show was Hemp and Chia seed. With our Metabolic extreme and Alpha Drive launched along with our Amino Plex and Hyper Infusion ready for sale in April 2013, the Hemp-Plex and Chia-Plex was the natural progression. Our Centro-Plex whey protein will also be launched shortly after this introduction. We are proud to introduce these new innovative proteins which will complement our existing product lines, as Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc. generated over $2.5 million in revenue last year.
