All products in the line provide veterans and first responders with natural alternatives that are intended to ease symptoms related to health issues symptomatic of post-traumatic stress.

Under the terms of the letter of intent, Tactical Relief will contribute artwork, logos, package design and marketing for a series of cannabis tinctures and cannabis related products. On an ongoing basis, Tactical Relief will be financially responsible for the products' initial design and ongoing marketing throughout the sales areas.

“Tactical Relief is a patriotic brand with a powerful message,” said Adam Smith, a Green Beret, veteran, and US representative at Allied. “We launched this product to change the ways in which veterans and first-responders suffering from PTSD can choose to treat themselves, and with the Hollister Biosciences strategic alliance, we will be able to provide even more alternative treatments to those suffering. Part of the Tactical Relief mission is to use as many holistic treatment methods that have been shown to assist with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). This partnership with Hollister Biosciences will help move this mission forward.”

“It’s always been our vision to share the wellness benefits of the cannabis plant with as many people as we possibly can,” said Carl Saling, Founder, CEO and Director of Hollister Biosciences Inc. “We take great pride in providing only the highest quality products and innovation, and we are excited to be teaming up with TACTICAL RELIEF™ to reach new audiences and help out those who have sacrificed so much for us all.”
