VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 17, 2016) - Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYX) ("Calyx" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Cannigistics Agri-Solutions Corp. ("Cannigistics") has launched its first consumer facing Cloud (LEAFHub) which is based on the company's innovative "FocusPoint" Software Platform.

LEAFHub will be Canada's first real-time, mass communication consumer cloud that provides the Canadian Medical Marijuana user a safe and secure forum to discuss, compare, evaluate, or otherwise locate and comment on the various products available in the market today. "We are confident that over time, the LEAFHub Cloud will become a very popular destination with both consumers and licensed producers," states President and CEO, Roger Forde.

The next LEAFHub Cloud to launch will be Washington State, followed by Colorado, and ultimately (depending on the November 8th, 2016 referendum) California.

As each state may potentially have thousands of potential consumers, it necessary they each have their own unique implementation of the LEAFHub Cloud to ensure that any and all specific state laws are recognized and adhered to.

LEAFHub Cloud could easily become a standard method of consumer mass communication and information exchange for both the recreational and medical marijuana industry in these states.

The rollouts of these Clouds are scheduled to begin the 2nd week of November 2016 with an anticipated completion date by the 3rd week of December 2016.
