HEMP BioSciences Inc. a Wholly-owned Division of WEED Inc. Receives Full Suite of Industrial Hemp Licenses From State of Arizona

WEED Inc. subsidiary will begin buildout of its cGMP certified kitchen to begin manufacturing of consumer-packaged goods

TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via IBN – WEED Inc. (OTCQB: BUDZ), (“WEED,” “HEMP” or the “Company”), a global cannabis and hemp bioresearch company based in the U.S. focused on the development and application of cannabis–derived compounds for the treatment of human and animal diseases, announces today that it intends to expand into consumer packaged goods utilizing the Company’s rare Landrace strains including Original Panama Red, Acapulco Gold, Red Bud Colombian and Santa Marta Gold.

Nicole Marie Breen, COO of HEMP BioSciences Inc., said: “HEMP has been issued all required licenses for Industrial HEMP; Growing, Nursery, Harvester, Transporter and Processor licenses under Title 3-Chapter 2-Article 4.1 of The Arizona Department of Agriculture. With the renewal of our hemp licenses, we are now in the process of acquiring a cGMP certification to ensure the highest quality products, while protecting the public in this highly regulated industry. We believe HEMP’s CBD gummies, oils, cremes, tinctures, balms, both broad and full spectrum, will maximize the entourage effects under the strictest manufacturing processes globally.”

Jeffery Miller, CEO of HEMP BioSciences, adds: “Hemp is a botanical class of cannabis sativa cultivars belonging to the same plant species Cannabis Sativa L. Our hemp is carefully processed under supercritical CO2 extraction of hemp flowers. Our cGMP kitchen will provide a pure, clean complete extraction process that yields the maximum levels of hemp’s natural phenotypes with natural terpenes added for the perfect flavor and textures. This provides increased absorption, higher bioavailability and greater effectiveness for the consumer or patient.

“HEMP’s proprietary strains vary in phytochemical properties that contain no more than 0.3% THC in dried condition for sale under our current licensing,” Miller continued. “Our products are high in active phytonutrients and are grown, cultivated, harvested and processed in the USA. Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae…. Happy New Year!”

WEED, Inc.’s Subsidiaries past comments:

WEED Israel (Cannabis) Ltd. “After over 4 years of putting human clinical trials and product development on hold due to COVID and now the war, WEED Israel is still poised and anxious to build out our global brands in both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical categories, starting with women’s health and veterans’ ailments (PTSD) to healthy green alternative medicines,” stated Elliot Kwestel, managing director of WEED Israel (Cannabis) Ltd. based outside Jerusalem.

Kwestel further commented, “WEED Israel looks to enrich and expand our clinical trials with both THC and cannabinoid studies to promote healthy living for generations to come.”

WEED Australia Ltd. and The Cannabis Institute of Australia (C.I.A.), our Australian non-profit arm, based in Queensland on the Gold Coast.

Corporate Director Patrick Brodnik stated, “With the new rules out governing cannabis and hemp in Australia and the announcement in February 2021 to allow over-the-counter CBD medicines in pharmacies, now after Covid, timing is perfect to begin our clinical trials in Israel and Australia to bring new curative products to market as we close out COVID mandates this year.”

Managing Director Amanda Brunskill-Scott commented, “Next year, in 2024, the future of USA & Australia decriminalizing cannabis and hemp globally will prove to be a giant leap forward for worldwide cannabis legalization.”

WEED Hong Kong Ltd. Director Nicole Breen agrees, “The pandemic has affected all of us on a worldwide basis. Healing our planet with natural therapies, treatments and eventual “cures” utilizing nature’s own Cannabaceae plant with its many properties, both with high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) compounds, I believe will change the force of medicine forever in the years to come. We look forward to an exciting year-end and a Prosperous 2024”
