Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemesis International Inc. (CSE:CSI), a vertically integrated global leader in the cannabis industry (the “Company”), announces it has increased its ownership stake in SAP Global (“SAP”) from 51% to 80%.  SAP is a California Corporation that controls legal cultivation and manufacturing licenses for the new state-of-the-art facility, where the Company will manufacture and distribute medical and recreational THC and CBD products for the California market.

With recreational cannabis legal in California, SAP's flagship facility and operations strategically located in Cathedral City, California, have the legal standing necessary to meet the California medical and recreational application requirements, which in turn will facilitate the sale of over-the-counter and holistic cannabis products.

SAP is able to process up to 2,000 lbs of agricultural trim and yield as much as 200 lbs of clean, compliant cannabis oil per day at its flagship facility.  This capacity is intended to provide Chemesis with a consistent revenue stream with products that are essential to the industry and cater to both the medical and recreational cannabis markets in California.  To increase its ownership of SAP to 80%, the Company committed and paid an additional $700,000 CDN toward additional capital expenditures at the flagship facility.

The Company also is pleased to announce the acquisition of the California Sap brand and product catalogue, which includes the effective and easy to use cannabis oil Gramqul and Vape Cartridges.  As part of the acquisition for the California Sap brand, the Company issued $500,000 USD in stock at a deemed price of $1.00 CDN per share.  The stock is subject to a 36-month lock-up/leak-out. 

“We are extremely pleased to be expanding upon the originally planned capacity at our flagship facility.  SAP’s management team has been consistently and highly awarded within California and the industry at large for over a decade with respect to its extraction techniques and oils, topicals, e-liquids, and other cannabis products utilizing THC, CBD, and full-spectrum cannabinoids.  The addition of the California Sap brand and products are great complements to the SAP facility and management and important milestones for Chemesis.  These efforts demonstrate Chemesis’ commitment to quality and efficiency in both medical and recreational markets and form the cornerstone of the enterprise we are building,” said Edgar Montero, CEO of Chemesis.
