NEWTON, Mass., NEW YORK, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MariMed Inc., (OTCQB:MRMD) today announced that it has signed an exclusive global licensing agreement with Vitiprints™ for the worldwide production and distribution rights in all existing and future legal cannabis markets. The agreement extends to all cannabis products made using Vitiprints’ proprietary technology, including liquid ingredient formulation, printing process, and the resulting array of dissolvable products.
“Our exclusive agreement with Vitiprints puts MariMed on the forefront of precision-dosed branded cannabis products and technology that will, above all, delight consumers with a revolutionary product category and experience,” said Robert Fireman, MariMed CEO. “This innovative technology enables creation of infused cannabis products which can be specifically designed for dosage, flavor, and supplements to achieve the desired effect or result. These products can be manufactured at speeds and efficiencies that will create cost savings for producers and consumers, while generating significant incremental revenue streams for MariMed from sales and sublicensing agreements.”
The patent-pending Vitiprints technology – a first for the cannabis industry -- is already under development for consumer consumption in other industries. For MariMed, the platform combines multiple layers of marijuana ingredients, such as cannabinoids, terpenes, graphic design elements and other ingredients, into a paper-thin low-calorie product that is delivered sublingually, transdermally, or by drinking when dissolved in any liquid. The product can be used to create its own beverage or tea or as an enhancement to other beverages. Achieving total control over the ingredient layers, the platform further enables precision dosing and fast absorption, without the additional fillers commonly found in cannabis and nutraceutical products. This product transports easily in purses, pockets, and wallets with seamless discretion and convenience.
“MariMed’s management immediately recognized the advantages Vitiprints offered for flexibility in production, dosage, and design and how this is a game changing array of products for the cannabis industry,” stated Andrew Ferber, Co-founder and CEO. “We chose to partner with MariMed from the myriad of cannabis companies because their strategic vision and goals are aligned with ours and we have confidence their extensive experience as multi-state operators with a growing national distribution network will help us quickly penetrate the U.S. and international cannabis markets. We will continue to work with MariMed to develop new innovative products for this emerging industry.”
MariMed expects to complete test marketing of the dissolvable product sets in a MariMed-managed facility within 90 days, then launch in legal states across the country, and finally expand worldwide via sublicense agreements with qualified manufacturers and distributors. Products will be available on shelves as early as the end of Q4 2018.
“Vitiprints is ideally suited and ‘future proof’ against the widely differing and ever-changing cannabis regulations regarding dosing, formulation and appearance, enabling instant modification via the user interface versus a complete product redesign,” said Ryan Crandall, MariMed VP of Brand and Licensing. “Furthermore, we are able to engage customers by using printed design layers as a touch point into our customer education and engagement portal, in turn generating loyalty and feedback. It’s a dream come true for product development and marketing teams,” Crandall added.
