American Green Acquires OG Tea

Commits to Cultivation in and Beyond the Legal Cannabis Market

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2014) - American Green, Inc. (OTC Pink: ERBB) (PINKSHEETS: ERBB) announced today that it has acquired the OG Tea Corporation ( whose primary business supplies a system of veganic products specially designed to promote the healthy growth of general produce. The acquisition adds top and bottom line revenues to American Green and strengthens its relationship with entities throughout the legal cannabis industry while providing an opportunity to sell products into the multi-billion dollar agriculture market. After reviewing the market potential, the company expects to increase OG Tea's revenues from over $1,000,000 for the next calendar year, based on current sales, to at least $3,300,000 in top line revenues for American Green in the next fourteen months with the additional sales and marketing expertise contributed by the company.

OG Tea permeates the soil with beneficial microbes and mycorrhiza, thus squeezing out bad bacteria, pathogens, molds, and mildews. These microbes help break down nutrients in the soil making them more readily available to the plants while improving water retention and plant immunity. One of the company's most sought-after products is its Veganic Special Sauce (VSS) which is now registered as a specialty fertilizer in several states, including California, giving the company the ability to be carried on the shelves of large-scale outlets such as Home Depot. The company has a variety of veganic products already in use with more in testing and production.

"For many years we have observed market forces producing an environment that has fostered amazing innovation from entrepreneurs, talented cultivators, and scientists alike to develop methods for maximum yield of pure products with a minimum of resources. From this knowledge, we are confident that utilization of OG Tea products already proven inside the legal cannabis market, will also have a significant impact on cultivation outside the legal cannabis market," says Stephen Shearin, American Green president.

"Committing to OG Tea should send a clear signal of our intent to earn revenues while reducing the carbon footprint of food production by enabling local farms to realize superior crops and reinvigorate both local economies and the soil in all types of cultivation," adds Shearin.

"We looked into the future and saw ourselves as part of something larger by pairing with the right organization. By joining OG Tea with the American Green team, we create the perfect platform for all of us to bring unique cultivation techniques generated by the science of the cannabis industry to big agriculture," says Dustin Pebbles, COO at OG Tea. "We have spent countless hours contributing to the rebuilding of the viability within the world's food sources. Decades of using chemical-based and synthetic nutrients on our agriculture has depleted the nutritional value and overall health of our fruits and vegetables. We need to replenish beneficial microbes and organic nutrients in the earth's soil which can in turn pass those benefits on to the source of our food supplies. We, at OG Tea, could not be more excited to have a company like American Green sharing our vision. We look forward to helping all sectors of agriculture with the products of OG Tea."

"Our model is based on using advanced science to create world-class products and at the same time create an easy to use, affordable product that produces outstanding results," adds Jeff Webster, founder and CEO at OG Tea. "Our products focus on beneficial biology that works symbiotically with the plant's roots system to produce results such as: a decrease in water usage, a decrease in fertilizer use, an increase in yield, more nutrient-dense results, more robust smells and flavors in fruits and flowers, an increase in essential oils, and best of all, sustainable and clean to the Earth. We believe what we offer scales globally. Our goal and dream has always been to release revolutionary products that will change the way we look at crop production, fertilization, and pesticide use," Webster concludes.

Details about the integration of OG Tea and Truth Lighting will be managed as part of American Green's Jurassic Cultivation System will be made available in the coming weeks. Be sure to visit the company's newly designed website, and sign up for the company's emails alerts to stay current on news.

American Green became the first publicly-traded medical marijuana dispensary brand in the world, back in 2009. The Company now is keenly focused on developing, retailing, branding, and establishing commercial cultivation solutions under its proprietary American Green name along with our partners who are licensed retail medical marijuana dispensaries. American Green believes that the renewal of the legalized cannabis industry in the United States will aid in getting our economy back on its feet through increased employment in all related sectors -- retail, real estate, contracting, farming and more. Additional revenues, fueled by taxing cannabis sales, and the decreased cost of housing prisoners who are no longer in prison for possession of cannabis should contribute to the renewal. Hard work and a clear vision propel American Green into the future. The centerpiece of our company is ZaZZZ, our unique automated vending solution designed specifically around American Green's licensed proprietary patent technology.
