NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQB: TRTC) ("Terra Tech") or (the "Company"), a vertically integrated cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced that IVXX, the Company's proprietary brand of premium cannabis products, is now available at 60 additional medical cannabis collectives located in Orange and San Bernardino Counties, California.
"Not only is this order the largest to-date, it also demonstrates rising brand awareness, increased store penetration, and our expanding geographic footprint," said Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech. "The market's appetite for high-quality flowers, joints and concentrates is a testament to our long-term strategy, and this large order reaffirms the positive traction we're seeing so far this quarter."
This large IVXX order follows California Governor Jerry Brown's recent signing of three bills that comprise the Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act, which establishes a Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation. Scheduled to go into effect in 2018, the legislation creates the framework to issue permits, tax and regulate the medical marijuana industry, and also lays the groundwork for for-profit medical cannabis operations in California.
"The Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act laws are a true milestone for the industry," continued Mr. Peterson. "They mark the beginning of a new era for the IVXX brand, Terra Tech and the medical cannabis sector as a whole. When they go into effect, Terra Tech's subsidiary IVXX will no longer be required to operate on a not-for-profit basis."
IVXX products are only available to qualified patients through permitted medical cannabis dispensaries that are in full compliance with California Prop 215, SB 420 sections 11362.5 & 11362.7 of HSC. The company has also launched a full website, IVXX.com, in support of the brand. Through the website, patients and brand enthusiasts will be able to learn more about the products offered by IVXX, find local retailers, as well as purchase IVXX branded gear. The Oakland-based lab will be producing all of the concentrates for IVXX.
