Hollywood, May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTC PINK: ETST), an innovative biotech company focused on cannabis CBD-based (industrial hemp), cannabinoid research and development, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and its subsidiary, Cannabis Therapeutics Inc., are proud to announce the launch the first Orange Blossom CBD Oil product in the Hemp CBD Industry along with its new Hemp Pet CBD product and Organic Chocolate line produced as a result of the joint venture with Karmavore Superfoods partnership.

In the ongoing pursuit of ultimate health, wellness, and innovation to be leading Industrial High Grade Hemp CBD brand, Dr. Michel Aube and ETST’s team of scientists have formulated the first High Grade Hemp CBD Strawberry Orange Blossom Oil in the Hemp CBD market as mentioned in April. The oil is based off Earth Science Tech’s Full Spectrum Industrial Cannabidiol (CBD) Hemp Oil mixed with Natural Strawberry Flavoring, Coconut Oil (MCT), and Orange Blossom Honey sourced from Florida. The combination of the natural strawberry and orange blossom honey masks the CBD oil flavor extremely well, having the perfect blend of flavor and sweetness.

“Based on our sample test studies, it’s the best tasting CBD oil available, and we foresee it being a huge hit. Not only does it taste amazing, but the orange blossom honey adds an extra benefit as an allergy inflammation suppressant due to the increase effect of the polyphenol and flavonoid that boosts the effects of the alkaloid in CBD. Moreover it has been shown that the bioavailable polyphenolic constituents of the Citrus sinensis (scientific name of Orange Blossom) can accumulate prevalently at intestinal level where, according to me, it could synergize with CBD to preserve a good digestive health,” stated Dr. Michel Aube, ETST’s CEO & CSO.

ETST is also excited to announce the launch of its new organic raw chocolate line developed through a strategic joint venture partnership with Karmavore Superfoods (announced January 2017). This new product line of superfood-based organic raw chocolate, infused with ETST’s High Grade Hemp CBD, will initially consist of raw chocolate with vanilla roasted almonds, raw chocolate jungle peanut butter cup, and raw chocolate mini jungle peanut butter cups, with additional products in development. The addition of Karmavore’s CBD products will enable ETST to include edibles to its growing line of CBD related products already including oils, powder and veggie caps. Karmavore’s CBD raw chocolate sales have been rapidly growing and have shown to be very popular with tremendous industry excitement and increasing demand.

ETST’s CBD chocolate edibles are specifically formulated by Karmavore Superfoods using ETST’s Full Spectrum Industrial High Grade Hemp CBD Oil, with various other superfood ingredients intentionally selected for their nutritional density, and health and metabolic benefits. They are low in sugar and refined sugar free, preventing sugar rushes and crashes allowing the brain to better process the effects of the CBD and raw chocolate. The combined ingredients not only offer a delicious therapeutic product but, the synergistic combination of healthy fats, antioxidants, and CBD offers an abundance of therapeutic benefits, which have tremendously positive effects on our sense of wellbeing, comfort and calmness. Not only do these products taste amazing, they are also incredibly healthy and extremely effective at delivering CBD throughout the body’s cells.

So how does it work? There is a cannabinoid neurotransmitter called Anandamide found in raw chocolate. Anandamide is a naturally endogenous cannabinoid found in the brain and nervous system which greatly affects our mood and feelings of overall well-being. CBD and Anandamide are keys that fit into cannabinoid receptor sites in mammals. Like a “lock-in-key” system, anandamide in chocolate helps the CBD better penetrate the cell walls making the beneficial effects of CBD more readily available and effective in the body. Raw chocolate’s Anandamide specifically influences cells that affect mood, memory, appetite, pain perception, with similar medicinal benefits as THC.

In even higher concentrations than Anandamide, raw chocolate also contains cannabinoid breakdown inhibitors N-oleolethanolamine (OEA) — a weight gain inhibitor in mice, and the anti-inflammatory molecule N-linoleoylethanolamine (18:3 NAE). These two compounds inhibit the metabolic breakdown of Anandamide and could potentially inhibit the breakdown of other cannabinoids including CBD and THC, causing them to remain in the body longer, allowing smaller doses to be more effective and beneficial. Theobromine, a caffeine-relative found in raw chocolate is a vasodilator and helps deliver nutrients and chemicals into the body’s tissues and may also act as a CBD and Anandamide enhancer, also exaggerating their effects and benefits.

Brian Miller, Karmavore Superfood’s founder & CEO said, “It has been a great pleasure working with ETST since we started almost a year ago. I feel they have the best, most effective CBD oils we’ve tried. Their team has been great to work with and are extremely passionate about what they do. I have been meeting with Dr. Michel Aube and working on some new innovative products and potential new distribution avenues. I very much look forward to continuing to developing our business relationship — and of course making ridiculously healthy and effective CBD edibles more available and accessible.”

Gabriel Aviles, ETST’s Chief Sales Officer confidently and excitedly said, “the excitement and demand for our new Strawberry Orange Blossom and Organic Chocolate Edible Line has been amazing. We have been receiving countless pre-orders, positive results on our new revamped look, and our sales are projected to really take off with all of our new products attracting new accounts and much larger orders.”

Nickolas S. Tabraue, ETST’s President & COO updates the market, “I’m excited to have our new products released after a few setbacks, but it was truly well worth the wait. Our new packaging and design is much cleaner having our band truly stand out in store shelves, and our new flavored CBD Oil, Organic Chocolate CBD line, and Pet CBD have been completed properly offering the best quality to our loyal and much appreciated customers/accounts. We strive to be innovative, offering only the best quality, delivery, and flavored CBD, as well as evolving as company by offering a true branded experience. We still look to be on track with our patent pending CBD compounds and we plan on updating our stakeholders as soon as we finalize a very exciting opportunity that has risen.”

ETST continuously plans on updating its shareholders on the above mentioned studies and new products as further progress and development occurs.
