This is the foundational core of the Company's motivation to continue investing resources into cannabinoid research, professional education, and product development. Diamond CBD's commitment to science is embodied in the Company's exhaustive testing requirements, starting with its proprietary hemp oil and extending to every single product brought to market.

"This advantageous acquisition empowers the Company to continue building a growing presence in the marketplace with its entrance into the CBD essential oil manufacturing sector.

First Capital Ventures Inc. and Diamond CBD Inc. will become a new wholly-owned subsidiary for PotNetwork Holdings, Inc., bringing the Company back into the thriving Marijuana marketplace. Sunrise Auto Mall continues as the Company's existing wholly owned subsidiary, and Management's strategy remains to continue operations.

He concluded: "We are keenly focused on enhancing the overall revenue generating potential and shareholder value of our Company, and want to once again thank our shareholders for their continued support as we embark on this new endeavor." This acquisition, involving the mobilization of a new revenue generating operation, demonstrates Management's resolute drive to become a notable contender, capitalizing on the expansion of the cannabis industry.

The size of the market for legal marijuana in the United States was projected to grow to $7.1 billion in 2016, according to a report by New Frontier and ArcView Market Research. That represents 26% growth over the previous year, according to research cited on Forbes.com website.

Diamond CBD has been an innovative leader in this industry for years. The products are distributed in all fifty states, USA-made, and produced with CBD derived from the industrial hemp plant. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), CBD may be effective in controlling epileptic seizures, reducing pain and inflammation, and may also be an effective treatment for mental health disorders, such as addiction and various forms of psychosis.

The Company intends to keep shareholders fully updated as events continue to unfold.
