American Green Enters Managed Services Sector for Medical Marijuana

Utilizes Own Products for Vertical Integration

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - American Green (OTC: ERBB) announced today that it has signed a Managed Services agreement with Herbal Elements Dispensary and Cultivation located in Eagle County Colorado opening up another sales channel and further bolstering its seed to sale business model. American Green has created revenue driven model through which it will provide administrative, compliance, business, and cultivation direction to state licensed cannabis facilities. Under this agreement, American Green will assist Herbal Elements in the build-out and expansion of its cultivation operations -- adding expertise and in-house products such as Jurassic Water Systems, OG Tea nutrients and Truth full-spectrum lighting. Herbal Elements is already a pioneer in the legal medical cannabis business in Eagle County, Colorado. With access to American Green's network and products, including contacts with CBD-rich proprietary strains of cannabis, the companies are embarking on a long-range plan to incorporate vertical integration with quality control to the medical cannabis sector. American Green will continue to collaborate with legal cannabis businesses to provide them and their patients and/or clients with the means to gain access or obtain verifiable, high quality products.

After assembling premier cultivation assets, including a vast knowledge base, through acquisition American Green has set its sights on a business strategy that goes well beyond simple consulting or sales. Instead, by utilizing a steadily increasing database of partners and contacts, it will supply legal cannabis businesses with all the necessary tools for adding revenues to their bottom lines, while relieving them of compliance, administrative and strategic burdens. American Green will continue to develop industry specific administrative and legal knowledge while fostering maximum yields of the highest quality products for its strategic partners and client businesses.

"Managing and maintaining our operation has provided a successful ongoing business, but without material infusion and additional knowledge, expansion at a greater rate than normal growth is not possible," says Greg Honan, owner of Herbal Elements. "We already use OG Tea and are very pleased with the results. Adding cutting edge technologies, proprietary knowledge, and access to unique strains of cannabis are what is necessary to get ahead and maintain a lead in an ever more competitive market."

"Working with Greg allowed ZaZZZ to get legs and through that we've established a flourishing relationship. Sharpening the point on the model that will be a significant part of our continued growth was an easy decision," says Stephen Shearin, American Green president. "Vertical integration is a tried and true model. Employing it as part of a managed service strategy provides multiple revenue streams through our suite of offerings. With two additional projects in Arizona and another in Washington set to launch, we believe this will add over $100,000 in new revenues per month by January, with rapid ongoing growth in the coming year. Almost every dispensary we contact for ZaZZZ has a cultivation facility and vice versa, all of it on top of our current general sales efforts. We project a banner year as our efforts come to fruition," Shearin concludes.

Greater detail on the company plans will be available on Tuesday, September 30 2014 as part of the Cannabis Investor Webcast ( We invite all our current and prospective shareholders to familiarize themselves with the site and plan to join us for a live presentation to be held at 3PM Eastern.

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.
