VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) (Frankfurt: YG3) announces its subsidiary Urban Juve has received positive national media attention from two of Canada’s leading lifestyle magazines -- Zoomer and Elle Canada -- reaching approximately 3-million readers in print and online editorial. 

Elle Canada’s May 2019 issue says: “While the topical benefits of cannabis sativa-plant-derived ingredients are much hyped (they are said to be anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal…), scientific consensus is still out. Here’s what empirical evidence tells me...Urban Juve anti-aging serum is the best serum I’ve tried in years. One drop coats my entire face and gives me the softest, silkiest skin of my life. Is it due to the brand’s signature hemp root oil? Or perhaps another ingredient in the mix...hyaluronic acid or sea buckthorn oil? It doesn’t matter to me -- it works.”

After sampling the unisex anti-aging serum, Zoomer reports in its April 2019 issue: “We love Urban Juve's anti-aging serum, which smells divine and is made with hemp root extract."

According to Magazines Canada, in 2016 Elle Canada was ranked in the top three women’s magazines in Canada with 1.6M monthly subscribers, and Zoomer is disclosed to have approximately 1.4M subscribers.

“Our work to support the debut of the first two Urban Juve products included product sampling for journalists and beauty product reviewers,” says Penny Green, Yield Growth CEO. “The objective feedback that has resulted in national magazine coverage reinforces the high standards of excellence we have attained with our hemp-root oil infused skin care products.”

Further near term promotional and marketing highlights planned include a more robust Urban Juve website launching at the end of April, e-commerce deployment in Asia, as well as a major presence in June at The Lift & Co. Cannabis Expo in Toronto, a premier consumer cannabis trade show with more than 250 exhibitors.
