FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaya Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:KAYS), released today three video clips included in its annual shareholder meeting held Wednesday, December 20, 2017. The clips include an inside look at the Company’s Kaya Shack™ stores, an overview of cannabis and cannabis-infused products sold at Kaya Shack™ stores, and an architect rendition of the to-be-constructed Kaya Farms™ and Kaya Manufacturing and Production Complex.

The Annual Shareholder meeting included discussions by Kaya Holdings’ CEO Craig Frank and Special Advisor W. David Jones on the current political environment, the state of the U.S. cannabis sector, Kaya Shack™ operations and performance, plans for the launching of Kaya Delivers Home Delivery Service, the Kaya Farms™ build out, new brands to be released in 2018, and the Company’s recently announced cannabis-for-opioids program, Kaya Cares.

In discussing Kaya Shack™ stores and the enhancements expected in 2018, CEO Frank stated, “During 2018 it is our plan to complete all the unique aspects for each store, and upon completion, launch a highly visible marketing effort to position the stores as centers of culture and activity in Salem.”

In discussing Kaya Farms™ Special Advisor Jones stated, “The law limits only the size of the flowering canopy, for which we have selected the maximum sizes permitted… regulations also permit us to dedicate additional space for medical marijuana cultivation and research. The Company plans to use some of this dedicated space – about 10,000 square feet – to grow cannabis for our Kaya Cares opioid-cannabis swap program, and other medical cannabis related endeavors.”

Craig Frank, CEO of Kaya Holdings also confirmed that the video of the full meeting, including the half hour question and answer segment, will be released over the coming week  with the launch a new Kaya Holdings website.
