PBIO Adds CA Based Cannabis Quality, Innovation, and Social Equity Leader Crème de Canna to List of Distributors Selling PBIO’s Ultra-Fast Acting and Highly Effective All-Natural Nano-CBD Topical Spray
Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB:PBIO) (“PBIO” or the “Company”), a global leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, high-pressure-based equipment, consumables, and specialty testing services to the worldwide biotherapeutics, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, food and beverage, and other industries, and Crème de Canna (CdC), a Santa Cruz County based leader in the development, manufacture, and supply of premium quality and innovative cannabis products, today announced their commercial agreement for the supply and distribution of PBIO’s UltraShear™-processed nanoemulsified CBD (“UltraShear Nano-CBD”) in a hemp-derived, best-in-class, super-fast acting, highly bioavailable, all natural, preservative-free, and highly potent (40 mg/ml) Nano-CBD Topical Spray.
Mr. Jeffrey N. Peterson, PBIO’s Chairman, explained: “CdC’s founding partners were among the earliest innovators in California’s emerging cannabis industry. Their relentless focus on controlling quality from plant selection and growth through to product design, manufacture, and finished products has distinguished and equipped them for survival and success through the tumultuous history of this industry. Since its formal founding in 2010, Crème de Canna has been recognized as the oldest “social equity” licensed manufacturer and distributor of cannabis products in CA. In addition to their web-based marketing and distribution capabilities in CA and beyond, they have recently partnered with Catalyst, a leading chain of California dispensaries, providing CdC with a new, highly respected, and successful sales channel.”
Mr. Peterson continued: “CdC’s history, principles, and performance made them an attractive partner for our early efforts in developing and testing UST-processed nanoemulsified THC oral spray products in CA. Their team has worked closely with us to produce small batches of Nano-THC Oral Spray for consumer focus group testing, with notable success reported in several previous PBIO press releases. Upon PBIO’s recent development and release of a Nano-CBD Topical Spray with our first few distribution partners, it was an obvious next step for the CdC team to partner with us to seize the opportunity to lead as a CA-based distribution partner.”
Mr. Jonathan Kolodinski, Founder and CEO of CdC, commented: “For the first time ever, the opportunity to purchase Creme de Canna products outside of California has arrived. Crème de Canna is bringing its long-established domain expertise in crafting innovative, high-quality cannabis products in CA to new frontiers. We plan to actively distribute this new, UltraShear-processed, super-fast acting, high potency, and highly bioavailable Nano-CBD Topical Spray worldwide wherever CBD commerce is legally allowed. We are delighted to add this best-in-class Nano-CBD Topical Spray to our product line! Our team is excited about our partnership with PBIO and the opportunities they are opening with their disruptive UltraShear technology platform, now being introduced for cannabis products. CdC will be quickly launching this preservative-free, all plant-based Nano-CBD topical spray on our website, thus making this unique product available soon for purchase from CdC nationwide.”
Mr. Richard T. Schumacher, President and CEO of PBIO, added: “This agreement between our companies for the supply and distribution of PBI’s stable, highly absorbable UltraShear Nano-CBD Topical Spray is for a minimum of two years and is expected to generate over $1.0 million in revenue for PBIO in the first year alone. Jonathan Kolodinski has been an early and courageous innovator in the cannabis field in California and is a proven winner in this challenging growth industry. We are honored and excited to partner with Jonathan and his team at Crème de Canna on this next generation UltraShear Nano-CBD product, and likely on additional products to follow.”
About Crème de Canna
Inspired by the ever-expanding knowledge base on the medicinal and therapeutic benefits of cannabis, the Créme de Canna team is driven by a vision of providing the highest quality and most effective legal cannabis products to the world.
In 2010, Créme de Canna was born and began supplying the State of California with legal medical cannabis products. Early success and attention were earned with their cannabis-infused ice cream, including flavors like Bananabis Foster and Straw-Mari Cheesecake, providing exciting and delicious ways to enjoy cannabis for the medical-cannabis patients of California, under the prop 215 medical cannabis laws. Following success with ice cream products, they opened one of the first cannabis dispensaries in Santa Cruz, California, providing a first of its kind, world class experience in buying locally grown and sourced cannabis products.
Integrity, unwavering focus on quality, an enviable record of product and industry awards, growth through sustainable practices, and community involvement, facilitated Créme de Canna’s path through the hurdles of California’s prop 64 Cannabis Legalization in 2018, poising it for a new era of product innovations, partnership, and growth. The Crème de Canna brand is now best known for its California THC products ranging from premium Live Resin Extracts to Cured Extracts, Diamond Infused Flower and Pre Rolls, Full Spectrum Oil, Hash Gummies and Body Cream.
