This will include a corporate blog with more frequent updates on the company’s work and monthly videos with Dr. Aube and his team.

Over the past several weeks, executives from Earth Science Tech have been meeting with the R&D team from Smart Medicine. In the last weekly meeting, several milestones were discussed and progress has been made. Formulations for the company’s three varieties of High Grade Industrial Hemp CBD Oil nutraceutical formulas have been completed. The company is moving forward quickly on its International Application for Provisional Patents, and this progress was discussed. Formulations leveraging ETST’s U.S. Provisional Application N. 62/061,577, filed October 8, 2014 and ETST’s U.S. Provisional Application No. 62/102,538, filed January 12, 2015 to oxidative stress for athletes, individuals with chronic inflammation, and women during peri-menopause and menopause are being actively developed as part of the new Women’s Health initiatives the company recently announced, (https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/04/11/958716/0/en/Earth-Science-Tech-Inc-Targets-Breast-Cancer-and-Other-Women-s-Health-Issues-in-New-Cannabis-CBD-Based-Pharmaceutical-Drug-Development-Initiatives.html). The resulting formulas are expected to be beneficial for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer, and cancer patients as well. The first formula is expected to be finished and ready for testing in mid 2017.

“The applications of nutraceuticals that leverage ETST’s U.S. Provisional Application N. 62/061,577 and ETST’s U.S. Provisional Application No. 62/102,538 to prevent oxidative stress are near endless,” said CEO & CSO Dr. Michel Aube, “We see a tremendous market that goes far beyond the initial scope we were pursuing, and things are moving very quickly. We are quite optimistic with the results we have seen thus far.”

The company is expecting to have its High Grade Industrial Hemp CBD Patent pending formulas ready to be sold in stores by the end of 2017.

“After speaking with Michel and hearing the optimism coming from the development work being completed, we’re expanding our horizons,” said CSO Gabriel Aviles, “We are expecting to be able to reach a great deal of new customers with our niche provisional patent products. Q3 and Q4 will be huge for us in terms of gaining a foothold on these markets.”

“In addition to all of the hard work our scientific teams are doing, we are still on track to launch our Pet CBD products and revamped packaging we mentioned in March (https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/03/30/947031/0/en/Earth-Science-Tech-Inc-Expands-Marketing-Campaign-to-MassRoots-OTC-MSRT-Natural-Awakenings-Magazine-and-Enhances-Product-Packaging.html), as well a new flavored High Grade Hemp CBD Oil with added therapeutic properties (new to the market) and therapeutic edibles as early as this May. We plan on sharing these new exciting innovative products as we get closer to launching. Our team has been working hard on making sure to be the forefront in the CBD industry and making sure we can continue helping and positively changing individual’s lives.” concluded President & COO Nickolas Tabraue.
