MANCHESTER, N.H., Sept. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Management of QED Connect Inc. (OTC Pink:QEDN) announced today that their wholly owned subsidiary, Emerald Med Farms Inc., will be expanding their medical marijuana market reach. The Company is applying for the licensing for the development of cannabidiol (CBD) oils and marijuana edibles.
The Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. It is known to be an anti-inflammatory agent that is more effective than aspirin. The Cannabidiol has properties that relieve convulsions, inflammation, anxiety and nausea, as well as demonstrating positive results in preventing some cancer cell growth.
Besides adding new green houses and converting existing structures into climate controlled drying and curing areas, a commercial grade kitchen for production of "world class" edibles and a full laboratory will be constructed on their 300 acre property in Mendocino County, California. The laboratory will meet the requirements for high quality CBD oil extraction.
The company will incorporate a Carbon Dioxide (Co2) extraction process instead of the more commonly used Butane based extraction. Butane extraction is a cheaper procedure that carries risk of explosion hazard and can ultimately infuse the oils with toxic heavy metals. Whereas, the Co2 extraction process Emerald Med Farms will be employing carries little to no risk of fire or explosion. Also, because Co2 is essential to humans and plants, the pressurized Co2 is considered a safer liquid solvent. Once the oil is processed there is no Co2 residue left behind. This Co2 method is regularly used for products like decaffeinated coffee, beer hops, and a wide range of pharmaceutical precursors.
GM and VP of operations at Emerald Med Farms, Steve Amato, went on to say, "With this expansion of our market efforts we believe we're on track with our goal of becoming a leader in the medical marijuana industry by providing the highest quality and purity products."
