Opens the Door for Licensing Opportunities
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 3, 2018 / CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTCQB: CLSH) "CLS," a development stage diversified cannabis company operating as Cannabis Life Science, is pleased to announce that it has received a notice of allowance from the U.S. patent office for its proprietary extraction and conversion methodology.
The proprietary extraction process differs from others that typically use ethanol, supercritical CO2 or butane. The resulting finished product is cleaner and provides for more Delta 9 THC. The Company intends to deploy its proprietary extraction and conversion technology upon completion of its pending acquisition of Oasis Cannabis. Additionally, the Company will look to license its patented extraction process.
Jeff Binder, Chairman and CEO of CLS, stated, "Extraction is a very important and valuable process as the quality and value of the finished product is largely impacted by the quality of its extraction. We are focused on increasing yields and the quality of yields and feel our process gives us a major leg up relative to others in the industry. We have dedicated considerable amounts of resources to this endeavor and to receive this allowance from the US patent office is a milestone for the company. I am truly appreciative of all the efforts and contributions of our team and wish to personally thank our chief scientist and co-founder, Ray Keller."
Oasis Cannabis is a fully integrated cannabis operation in Nevada. Las Vegas-based Oasis Cannabis' (http://oasiscannabis.com) operations include a grow, extraction, conversion and processing facility, and a retail dispensary. CLS has now executed a definitive agreement to acquire the Oasis Cannabis companies. A non-refundable cash deposit has been paid by CLS. The closing of the transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of conditions, is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2018.
