Shared by: Marijuanaindex.com
LAS VEGAS, June 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GrowBLOX Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:GBLX), a biopharmaceutical company with state-of-the-art technologies in plant biology and cultivation designed to produce consistent medicinal cannabis, announced here today that it has received a $1.75 million funding commitment to enable GrowBLOX to complete construction and set-up operations at their MME Cultivation Facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. Pacific Leaf Ventures, LP has provided both the capital infusion and a license for their intellectual property including recognizable brand-names of cannabis and proprietary know-how for cultivation and cannabis extractions.
“This funding represents the final step in a series of prerequisites for the commencement of operations at our cannabis cultivation facility in Las Vegas,” said CEO Craig Ellins. He continued, “Our suite of technologies for tissue culture propagation of our proprietary strains, growing a safe and consistent MME product, and efficiently extracting the cannabis oils will all soon be on display at our state-of-the art facility. We are also pleased to announce that we have commenced construction of pre-fab “clean rooms” that we call Cultivation Labs and are targeting to complete construction of the new Cultivation Facility by mid-4th quarter in 2015. We believe that our Cultivation Labs will provide a pristine and consistent environment for growing and processing medical cannabis that will safeguard our proprietary technology and equipment, as well as our products. We also feel that our Cultivation Labs will ensure the security and integrity of the licenses from Pacific Leaf for its brand name cannabis strains and products that will be recognized by patients with reciprocal MME cards in adjacent states like California and Arizona. We believe that the experience of Pacific Leaf Ventures in cannabis cultivation and extraction makes our business relationship potentially far more valuable than any amount of capital invested.”
