CITY OF INDUSTRY, California, February 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Sugarmade, Inc., (OTC:SGMD) having secured access to important patents for the active packaging of cannabis, today announces its product development strategy. The technology the Company intends to introduce will not only help to better preserve cannabis, including THC levels, via control of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, humidity and thermodynamic cooling but will also significantly improve the safety of cannabis via the emission of food safe oxidizers to mitigate mold, bacteria and other pathogens, including powdery mildew.
"We believe these important patents will enable us to create an entirely new class of cannabis curing, transport and storage products," commented, Jimmy Chan, CEO. He further explains, "We plan to use this intellectual property to develop products that will enable cultivators and retailers to better preserve THC levels, while virtually eliminating any pathogens. Additionally, we will be able to apply the patents directly to the creation of home cannabis storage units that will prolong the enjoyment for consumers. We are currently designing laboratory testing protocols for these products to further validate our product concepts."
Sugarmade is currently working toward two initial products within the developing market for active packaging of cannabis. These include:
1) Dispensary/Home Storage Container. The Company's top priority is an active packaging enabled cannabis storage container that will better preserve THC and terp levels, while treating cannabis for pathogens.
2) Grower Cure Box. Proper curing of cannabis is not an easy process. The Company plans to develop a curing box that will enable home and professional cultivators to better manage the curing process via control of C02, O2, and moisture levels, while ensuring that desirable aromas are preserved and that pathogens, especially molds and mildews, do not spoil the cannabis during the process.
While the food industry has used modified atmosphere packaging for many years, recent advancements have given way to active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is a smart system that involves interaction between packaging components and the internal gas atmosphere within the package.
