CannaVest Provides Cannabidiol (CBD)-Rich Hemp Oil to HempMedsPX, HempMedsPX
Supplies Kannaway With CBD-Rich Hemp Oil 

SAN DIEGO, 2014-03-06 15:00 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
CannaVest Corp. (OTC:CANV), the world's leading hemp-based investment company
spearheading the development of cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp oils and other hemp
industry-related products and services, would like to clarify its relationship
with both General Hemp, LLC and Kannaway, LLC. 

Kannaway, LLC is marketed as a hemp lifestyle company with a focus on
nutritional wellness whose products contain CBD rich hemp oil. Kannaway was
founded in 2014 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Hemp, LLC. 

The sole owner of General Hemp is Stuart Titus. Mr. Titus formerly was a
consultant and advisor to CannaVest, and currently owns less than 2% of the
outstanding shares of CannaVest. Mr. Titus no longer has any affiliation with
CannaVest, and no person affiliated with General Hemp is employed by CannaVest
in any capacity. The sole relationship between CannaVest and General Hemp is
Mr. Titus' ownership of CannaVest stock. 

Products for Kannaway's business will exclusively be supplied by HempMedsPX,
LLC, which is a distributor of federally legal, hemp-based CBD products and a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA). HempMeds is the
master distributor and marketing company for CannaVest. As a result,
CannaVest's product offerings will be available to Kannaway for its business.
CannaVest has no ownership or other interest in Kannaway, and CannaVest solely
will act as a supplier of products to Kannaway. 

'We have received numerous telephone calls from the public leading us to
believe there is general confusion relating to our relationship to Kannaway,'
says Michael Mona III, Vice President of Operations for CannaVest Corp. 'Our
business focus continues to be on being the world's leading bulk CBD-rich hemp
oil supplier, and we intend to continue selling our product offerings to
HempMeds, which ultimately will allow Kannaway to launch and sustain its
business. We are excited that our products will be available to consumers
through the Kannaway model.'
