Dutch Gold Develops Neuroprotective Protocols for Athletic Concussion Treatment

Company to Offer Certification Programs for Health Care Professionals

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2014) - Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI) (the "Company") (http://dutchgoldinc.com) today announced that it has developed treatment protocols for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) using Cannabidiol (CBD). The Company will begin offering certification programs for physicians, athletic trainers, and other healthcare professionals on December 4, 2014.

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is a progressive neurodegenerative disease caused by repeated brain trauma. Mild concussions and sub-concussive blows as well as concussions with loss of consciousness cause TAU protein expression (Tauopathy). Professional athletes such as football players, hockey players and soccer players are at risk for CTE. Additionally, collegiate and high school players may be at risk.

The Endocannabinoid System in the human brain normally protects the neuronal cells and regulates immune responses. CTE causes an endocannabinoid deficiency, which causes a significant decrease in circulating cannabinoids and damages CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors that bind to the endocannabinoids. Cannabidiol has been shown to provide anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and anti-convulsive effects.

"In developing the Medical Cannibis Manual, we have realized the need to a separate manual that focuses on the benefits of CBD," said Daniel Hollis, CEO of the DGRI. "Our research has led us to develop protocols that can be immediately used by patients to address CTE. This is a serious condition that impacts athletes of all ages and anyone who has been subjected to brain trauma such as our veterans."

The Company will host its first webinar on December 4, 2014 to begin the certification process. Interested health care professionals are invited to contact the Company at info@dutchgoldinc.com for further information.
