BOULDER, Colorado and LOS ANGELES, September 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

- Director of Technology Stephen Keen to present on cultivation methods -  

Surna Inc. (OTCQB: SRNA), a technology company that engineers state-of-the art equipment for controlled environment agriculture (CEA) with special expertise in cannabis cultivation, be represented by Director of Technology Stephen Keen at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition. On September 9th at 9:50 am pacific time, Mr. Keen, an expert in indoor cultivation who led the innovation of Surna's Hybrid Building, will co-present "Indoor, Outdoor, or Greenhouse? Choosing the Right Cultivation Method for You."

Surna's revolutionary Hybrid Building design is a turnkey solution for climate-controlled buildings as a mix of an indoor cultivation facility and greenhouse. Surna worked closely with the senior engineering team at the University of Colorado in designing a scale model that demonstrates the unique features of the building, including proprietary ceiling structure, which allows for sunlight to reach a plant canopy, and the sealed environment, which minimizes the negative effects of outside air contamination such as pests and pathogens. Management expects to formally launch this turnkey solution for climate controlled buildings at the Marijuana Business Daily Conference in November with the scale model on site.

Statement About Cannabis Markets 

The use, possession, cultivation, and distribution of cannabis is prohibited by federal law.  This includes medical and recreational cannabis.  Although certain states have legalized medical and recreational cannabis, companies and individuals involved in the sector are still at risk of being prosecuted by federal authorities. Further, the landscape in the cannabis industry changes rapidly.  What was the law last week is not the law today and what is the law today may not be the law next week.  This means that at any time the city, county, or state where cannabis is permitted can change the current laws and/or the federal government can supersede those laws and take prosecutorial action. Given the uncertain legal nature of the cannabis industry, it is imperative that investors understand that the cannabis industry is a high-risk investment. A change in the current laws or enforcement policy can negatively affect the status and operation of our business, require additional fees, stricter operational guidelines and unanticipated shut-downs.
