Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: TAUG), a diversified life sciences company with interests in the natural wellness sector and in developing a proprietary synthetic biology platform technology, recently announced that it has signed a non-binding MOU with Japan-based iFlow, Ltd. ("iFlow") to distribute and sell three new Tauriga-branded natural wellness products to the Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong regions (the "Territory"). iFlow is an innovative and entrepreneurial Asian marketing and distribution company with motivational products in health, lifestyle, education, business and finance. If a definitive agreement is reached, the partnership between the companies would enable Tauriga to reach Asian customers with an interest in natural healing. The intent of the parties is for the initial focus of the partnership to be on two different formulations of Tauriga's proprietary TopiCanna topical cannabis cream and on Tauriga's CannaCaviar brand of small soft gel supplements. In compliance with Japanese medical marijuana law, all three products would use oil that has been extracted from the stalk of the cannabis plant and that is higher in CBD (cannabidiol) and low in THC, hence providing wellness and healing properties without psychoactive effects. If the initial phase of the proposed partnership is successful in establishing the Tauriga natural wellness brand in the Territory, the two companies plan to extend the agreement to include additional Tauriga products, such as Tauriga's new line of natural dietary supplements.
Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQB: TRTC) recently announced they have completed testing and formulating compounds at their cannabinoid extraction facility in Northern California and are now moving into production. The company will be producing a variety of oils, waxes and other mediums of concentrated cannabinoids. In March of this year the company announced they are developing a research and industrial extraction facility focused on the medical cannabis market. The facility was built in response to what the company views as an increase in demand for high grade CBD as well as other cannabis extracts. On September 9, 2014 the company's Board of Directors unanimously voted to allow the company to engage in the production, extraction and retail sale of medical cannabis if done so in full accordance with the state and local medical marijuana laws(ordinances) in which they operate. This allows the company's executive team to transparently operate in the medical cannabis market.
