WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GrowLife, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT), a diversified company operating in the legal cannabis industry which develops, markets and deploys products and services of legal cannabis, is pleased to announce the completion and review of its commissioned study on practical uses and most lucrative therapeutic applications for medical grade cannabis with one of the country's premiere botanical labs. GrowLife's senior management has identified several near-term opportunities for development and partnership using the guidance from the report and which are synergistic with the Company's core strengths and stated growth initiatives.
In 2013, GrowLife engaged Medicus Research, LLC to provide a comprehensive review of worldwide scientific literature on the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana. Medicus Research is a premier organization engaged in clinical trials across various disciplines and is uniquely staffed to concentrate on early stage botanical drugs and the related published medical literature.
"The completed Medicus report has been invaluable to our understanding of the current state of the medical science of legal cannabis," stated Sterling Scott, CEO, GrowLife Inc. "The data is tantamount to a geologist's assay, providing us a guide to the lowest risk and highest probability of success in market segments for therapeutic applications. Review of the worldwide state of the science with our advisors has enabled us as planned to efficiently refine our targets for future operational expansion and Joint Venture."
"To that end, I believe we are very close to completion of at least one new Joint Venture that will allow GrowLife to have a presence in one of the most compelling and perhaps profitable sections of legal cannabis," added Scott. "The Medicus study provides us with a tremendous advantage. While we are not likely to make the study available to protect our proprietary interests, portions of the substantive conclusions of this work will be made available to the public from time to time through one of our official websites."
