XCHC Changes Corporate Name to "Endocan Corporation"; Medical Cannabis Industry-Driven Branding Campaign Begins with Name Change and Continues into the Arizona Dispensary Opening
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The X-Change Corporation (NASDAQ OTC: XCHC), a U.S. Company specializing primarily in cannabinoid formulation-based health and wellness solutions, is pleased to announce that the Company's Board of Directors has selected the name Endocan Corporation as the new, industry-driven name of the Company. The name change began with the Nevada Secretary of State filings yesterday. The next steps will include FINRA for a symbol change to match the new name. The Endocan™ name change will have no effect on the Company's share structure, corporate organization, business model operations, or corporate governance.
The Company has established two subsidiaries in The Netherlands, including Endocan B.V., for the Company's expanding European operations. In the United States dispensary owners will be licensed to use the Company's brands and formulations for retail distribution through licensing agreements with the Endocan™ brand name. Endocan Corporation now serves as the enhanced brand and refined image to be used in conjunction with all of the Company's activities, products, and services. The updated and revised Company website and corporate collateral package, will be released shortly.
Endocan™ was chosen by the Board as a direct reference to the endocannabinoid system of the human body. The endocannabinoid system is a group of neuromodulatory compounds and their receptors that are involved in a variety of fundamental physiological processes including pain-sensation, immune function, stress, sleep, mood, appetite, and memory. Cannabinoids from plants, including those found in the Cannabis genus, as well as those autonomously produced within living biological systems, work together in the operation of the endocannabinoid system. The modulation of this system is the basis for cannabinoid-based medical treatments to assist patients to improve their health and well-being.
"The Company's branding is an essential component in our messaging to reflect the nature of our cannabinoid based products that we are developing to treat a variety of illnesses," stated Dr. Dorothy Bray, President of Endocan Corporation.
