Cannabis Based CHILLO Energy Drink (RTXBQ) Appearing on Texas Retailers' Shelves

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 13, 2014) - Republic of Texas Brands, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RTXBQ) thru it's totally owned Cannabis-Holdings.com website has started delivering CHILLO-energy drink product to various wholesale and retailers in the State of Texas. CHILLO-energy products will be available in select retailers primarily in Northern Texas and will be available statewide as test store results are determined and distribution chains are widened.

One of the first retail locations to stock CHILLO-energy products is the Raceway convenience store located in Rockwall Texas. RaceWay is a contractor-operated chain of stores, which has grown to over 300 stores across 12 states in the Southeast. RaceWay's roots go back almost 80 years.

We expect to reach 100% market saturation in the coming weeks for all of the Dallas based Paper, Pipes and Vapes locations as we have shipped products to several of these stores and that CHILLO may already be on many of these retailers' shelves.

"We have received orders from the Republic of Texas Brands store located at AMAZON.com and we look forward to adding additional sku's on the Amazon.com and all of the other websites that we plan to market the Cannabis-Holdings product lineup." Say's Randy Safford COO. "It is too early to project 2014 sales for the CHILLO product but based on initial results and enthusiasm we already believe sales will far surpass our original expectations."

"Final negotiations are not yet complete but we plan on introducing a tea based cannabis drink in the coming weeks and a line of THC free edibles that will complement the CHILLO-energy line and will be marketed to the same wholesale and retail operations. We expect to order and receive the initial shipments sometime this spring."
