LAS VEGAS, NV, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Player’s Network, Inc. (OTCQB:PNTV), a publicly traded diversified holding company operating in media and marijuana, announced today a strategic partnership and Development Agreement with NightFood Holding, Inc. (OTC: NGTF) to develop a CBD infused line of nighttime snacks.
NightFood is a category leading, sleep-friendly, functional-food and better-for-you snack company, which is fully reporting and publicly traded. Yesterday, NightFood announced the engagement of Marijuana Accelerator’s Managing Director Jeffrey Robinson as a consultant to advise the company on the creation of an edibles line of cannabidiol (also known as CBD) infused products which would enter the cannabis marketplace under a new brand name, yet to be established. Marijuana Accelerator is a Division of PNTV currently working on unique, scalable projects which utilize technology to better serve the marijuana industry.
Green Leaf Farms Holdings (Green Leaf), a subsidiary of PNTV, is working with Mr. Robinson and NightFood to start developing a line of CBD-infused nighttime edibles. Green Leaf will be responsible for the cultivation and extraction of the CBD oils to infuse into the new line of products, which would be formulated to support and promote better sleep. Green Leaf will ensure NightFood is fully compliant with all Nevada Cannabis rules and regulations including, but not limited to; labeling and recipes. In addition, Green Leaf will provide all sales and distribution to dispensaries throughout the State.
Marijuana Accelerator will provide general consulting services to NightFood under the direction of Mr. Robinson. The primary focus will be creating partnership opportunities, increase distribution of existing non-cannabis products and distribution of new cannabis products nationwide.
WeedTV.com, a wholly owned subsidiary of PNTV, will assist NightFood in marketing their new cannabis and existing non-cannabis products to their audience. WeedTV.com will develop a NightFood channel and will assist with professional video production services and build an audience. The video content will be displayed throughout the WeedTV.com network via cross promotion with related products and services.
NightFood has created a unique coupon code for PNTV’s shareholders to try their product. Please visit www.nightfood.com and enter the coupon code PNTV to receive 30% off their current line of NightFood nutrition bars. This is a non-cannabis, non-CBD product, which is formulated as a better, healthier, sleep-friendly line of nighttime snacks to be eaten when cravings (or munchies) inevitably surface at night.
“NightFood is the first example of how a company can benefit tremendously from the entire business model of PNTV and how the accelerator acts as a catalyst in finding hidden gems,” says Brett H. Pojunis, member of PNTV’s Board of Directors and Co-Managing Director of Marijuana Accelerator. Pojunis continued “NightFood’s business model begs the question, why hasn’t anyone successfully done this yet? Sean Folkson (CEO of NightFood) is first to the nighttime nutrition market with a real solution, and we are thrilled to be along for the ride while we address this multi Billion dollar problem!”
“One of my lifes passions is connecting smart people and amazing projects,” says Jeff Robinson, Co-Managing Director of Marijuana Accelerator. Robinson continued, “NightFood is a perfect example of an amazing project that simply needed to be connected with the right people.“
“The reason we brought Jeff on board was to accelerate and streamline our path to market. Through this relationship, we believe we can implement a plug-and-play approach. Product development, regulatory, and marketing challenges can all be handled by a team that already has a world of experience in the space,” says Sean Folkson, CEO of NightFood. Folkson continued, “The NightFood branding, formulations, and consumer targeting and messaging will remain unchanged. And, in a short period of time, Robinson, Pojunis and I have been able to put together a roadmap to enter into the CBD edibles market hopefully creating tremendous shareholder value for NGTF.”
