Altitude Organic Forms Strategic Alliance With Cannapages.com and CannaMerchant POS Software Continues Sales Growth

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Altitude Organic Corporation (PINKSHEETS: ERBB), a leading national, publicly-traded medical marijuana company, announced today it has strategically aligned with medical marijuana advertiser and point-of-sale software support company Cannapages.com. The two companies have executed a website design and web hosting agreement. The two companies also have agreed to a discounted advertising and software support agreement for pending Arizona Altitude Organic Medicine dispensaries.

Cannapages.com has recently launched its Arizona medical marijuana advertising section, which is currently being developed. The website is designed to help patients locate medical marijuana dispensaries, accessories, attorneys, physicians, and other businesses related to the cannabis industry. The new CANNAENGINE™ website feature allows individuals the opportunity to search for businesses based on a desired category and geographic location.

Cannapages.com business consultants also install and provide software support to dispensary owners using the CannaMerchant (www.CannaMerchant.biz) point of sale system for the medical marijuana industry. Altitude Organic has begun using the system at both Colorado Springs locations recently. CannaMerchant has seen its number of dispensary accounts grow from around 60 to 100 accounts since its last press release with Altitude Organic Corporation in February. The company is pleased to reveal it is working on its new touch screen interface and 'speed use' applications for launch in Arizona when dispensaries begin opening after the summer. CannaMerchant.biz built in accounting software and seed-to-shelf inventory tracking has been created to provide seamless medical marijuana regulatory compliance at all stages of operation. The system is built for multiple dispensary locations being serviced by a management company.

"We are pleased to announce our strategic alliance with Cannapages.com in Arizona," stated Brian Cook, president of Altitude Organic Corporation. "Working with Cannapages and using CannaMerchant.biz seed-to-shelf inventory tracking will continue to help us provide the best services for our clients under management. Our Altitude Organix dispensary management business model will provide the state of Arizona a multi-dispensary compliance road map for making legal business transactions after decades of the illegal marijuana trade being conducted outside of tax and regulation. Nothing could be more critical to the industry's development than bringing wide-scale organizational oversight to the new legal cannabis industry. Cannapages just joined the NCIA, National Cannabis Industry Association (www.thecannabisindustry.org). The trade group continues to help its members align their businesses while expanding the cannabis industry's voice nationally and on Capitol Hill."
