GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 9, 2017) - CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: CGRW), a Liaison and Consultant providing turnkey solutions to licensed growers, announces the meeting of a major company benchmark as Licensed Grower, Category One Botanicals, LLC, completes their first major harvest cycles and initiates marketing and distribution of wholesale retail Marijuana products in the State of Colorado.
Dr. John P. Janovec, COO, stated, "As Facility Administrator, I am pleased to announce that Category One Botanicals has completed the process of curing bulk product from the first two harvest cycles at Colorado Buffalo Ranch Facility I. Despite the challenges we encountered, the Crew managed to pull off an impressive harvest of about 250 pounds of product that has been divided into 'Buds' and 'Shake/Trim,' with another approximate 50 pounds of product being harvested and processed this week. Mandatory potency and microbial contamination tests were conducted successfully, so the storeroom is now stocked with packages now for wholesale distribution to licensed retailers in the State of Colorado. The potency test results for the most prized strains range from around 15% to 22%, but the genetic catalog also includes strains with a high CBD:THC ratio, something to preserve for future research and development. The diversity of fragrances characterizing the hand-trimmed 'Buds' is remarkable, ranging from sweet-fruit-berry, citric, and mint, to spicy-clove-black pepper, sweet-musky-skunk, and diesel. The best of the bulk 'Buds' will be distributed specifically to retail dispensaries, while the bulk 'Shake' will be sold to a Retail Marijuana Processing Facility for production of extracts (oils, resins, waxes, etc.)."
Rod Clawson, Managing Member of Category One Botanicals, added, "Some days I find it hard to believe that we have come so far in such a short time since initiating licensed operations in late July 2016. One would be hard pressed to find a team of such high caliber as that found in the CannaGrow Holdings Staffing Program, combining literally over one hundred years of experience in project development, construction, facility management, and botanical and horticultural sciences. As Managing Member of Category One, I am now focused on executing a marketing strategy that is aimed at getting wholesale Marijuana products out the door. Our first demo samples of strain-specific products are now in the process of being transferred to licensed retailers for review and consideration based on current inventory and production schedules over the coming weeks-months. Those retailers include small to large dispensaries, as well as a high-demand brand backed by a renowned icon in the world of modern music."
