Sugarmade, Inc. Press Release:
City of Industry, Calif., February 21, 2017 – Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB:SGMD), announces the completion of an agreement allowing the Company to introduce a new and revolutionary set of intelligent and active packaging systems for cannabis transport and storage. These products will allow cultivators and retailers to preserve THC levels, protect trichomes and save terpenes, while helping to mitigate pathogen levels, all of which are critical to the marketing and enjoyment of high-quality cannabis flowers.
“We plan to lead the market in advanced transport and storage for the fast growing cannabis industry,” commented Jimmy Chan, CEO. “Currently, cannabis flowers have a very short shelf life. The trichomes that protect the cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids are extremely sensitive to handling, atmosphere gases, humidity and light. Current methods of transport and storage are very unfriendly to trichome preservation, resulting in millions of dollars in lost profits for cultivators and retailers and reduced enjoyment by consumers. Our aim is to lead the market in fixing these problems for the fast growing cannabis marketplace.”
Through the use of patent protected technologies, Sugarmade will offer transport and storage containers that will actively create the ultimate protective environment within transport and storage containers, while also applying food safe oxidizers to mitigate pathogens to make cannabis safer. Sugarmade and its licensor partner, Cannabis Active Packaging, Inc., are currently in the applications development process and are actively developing prototypes for testing in the laboratory environment.
While the food industry has used modified atmosphere packaging for many years, recent advancements have given way to active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is a smart system that involves interaction between packaging components and the internal gas atmosphere within the package. The intellectual property on which Sugarmade will base its new products takes active packaging one step further by adding intelligence to the packaging, which will allow for active feedback to the consumer and tracking throughout the entire supply chain.
