TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 7, 2017) - Platinex Inc. (CSE:PTX)(CSE:PTX.CN)(CNSX:PTX) ("Platinex" or the "Company") has signed a forty five day Letter of Intent with Cannabee Products, Inc. ("Cannabee") to acquire Cannabee in a share purchase agreement.

Founded in 2009 by Co-CEOs David DeGeeter and Liani Johnson, Cannabee is a PhytoCannabinoid Research & Development Incubator, nestled in the Coachella Valley of Southern California. Since its formation, Cannabee has been dedicated to medical efficacy, and serviced over 70 Medical Marijuana dispensaries in California alone, while developing their expansive catalog of patient tested, doctor recommended product offerings across the three main delivery platforms of Inhale, Ingest or Apply.

James R. Trusler, President & CEO of Platinex, states: "We are excited with the prospect of expanding into the large market in California by acquiring the high-profile medical marijuana development and marketing firm, Canabee Products, Inc."

Cannabee Products
The Cannabee Sku List focuses on the provision of more traditional medical cannabis delivery mechanisms that help patients "find their balance" through choosing from a novel list of product offerings.

Cannabees's most recent R&D project came to fruition with the Non-Provisional Patent Filing (both US & Int.) of their latest creation: Water Soluble Cannabinoid Inclusion Complexes; trademarked as "Hydroxican" [i.e. a phytocannabinoid complex compound(s)]. These unique PhytoCannabinoid compounds can be based on either a CBD only structure or a Full Plant structure (contains THC). The Cannabee Hydroxican Patent recently received notification from the USPTO confirming that the Hydroxican Compounds have received a "Class 514 Bioavailable Drug (DOAI)" Classification.

Cannabee's goal is to continue to develop PhytoCannabinoid IPs to "patent granted" status, and begin pharmaceutical drug development.
