Corix Bioscience, Inc. Announces Joint Venture with ChampRX

IRVINE, CA, Jan. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corix Bioscience Inc. (OTCQB: CXBS) today announced that it will joint venture with ChampRX for its products. Corix will provide ChampRX with a 100% THC free product focused on athletes. Corix will be their official CBD manufacturer and a 25% equity holder in ChampRX. Both companies will be ring sponsors for Shannon Briggs’s next title fight. Corix will also have access to the marketing for ChampRX and its partners. Under the terms of the agreement, Corix will provide the science and manufacturing behind the products and ChampRX will market and promote the product.  

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) recently decided to remove cannabidiol (CBD) from its list of banned substances in 2018.

“The recent WADA decision has opened up a large market of athletes. Being able to produce a THC free product on a consistent basis is our strength and vital to these athletes. The strong benefits of non-THC based CBD oil can now be exploited. This will be the first of many deals in the athletic arena. We have a number of upcoming meetings with other large athletic organizations, which should generate a number of new contracts,” commented Michael Ogburn, Corix Bioscience CEO.

"The Prohibited List review involves a very extensive stakeholder consultation process over the course of nine months," said Olivier Higgli, Director General, in an official statement. "In reviewing the List, experts examine such sources as: scientific and medical research; trends; and, intelligence gathered from law enforcement and pharmaceutical companies in order to stay ahead of those that endeavor to cheat the system."

While CBD will be permitted next year, the WADA notes that CBD extracted from the cannabis plant may also contain varying concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which remains a prohibited substance. This means that athletes will need to exercise extreme caution when taking CBD products to ensure that they contain zero trace of THC. Extensive drug testing will be in place to ensure that there are no trace amounts of the banned psychoactive cannabinoid.

In 2015, the WADA tested over 300,000 athletes worldwide with around 4% showing signs of cannabinoids in their system, which under previous regulations included CBD and would automatically disqualify any athlete testing positive. Under the new regulations, even trace amounts of THC could disqualify athletes, which makes it important to ensure that any CBD products consumed contain absolutely no THC content.

The marketing of the products will begin immediately with several telephone and print interviews during the remainder of the month.  This will include major athletic publications and national TV networks.

“This is an exciting partnership for our company. This industry is accelerating very quickly. When we couple our unique science with the notoriety of the principals at ChampRX we will be able to generate sizeable sales beginning almost immediately. Our goal is to become the leading distributor and tissue culture propagator of CBD in the world and this is another big step in that direction.  Our biggest competitive advantages of strong genetic engineering, unsurpassed purity and worldwide industry licenses will allow us to scale our operations very quickly,” stated Ogburn.
