LOS ANGELES / ACCESSWIRE / May 29, 2014 / Tauriga Sciences Inc. (OTCQB: TAUG) or ("Tauriga" or "the Company"), a diversified life sciences company with a proprietary microbial fuel cell technology and a pending acquisition in the medicinal cannabis space, has entered into its first retail distribution agreement for its new line of natural medicine products. Tauriga's natural medicine product line is expected to launch this summer and will include non-cannabis containing candies, gums and supplements with proprietary formulations designed to address unwanted cannabis-related effects such as increased appetite, anxiety, and reduction in memory and cognitive function. The Company's first retail distribution agreement for these products is with SpeedWeed, a leading medical marijuana delivery service serving areas of Southern California in strict accordance with California regulations and health and safety codes.
Tauriga's cannabis-free natural medicine products have been developed for medical marijuana patients by Dr. Lawrence May, Tauriga's Chief Medical Officer and former Executive Vice President and Chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of Herbalife International. Dr. May states, "We believe that there is an important market need for premium natural health care products for the growing population of legitimate marijuana patients. Tauriga's new product line uses ingredients that are classified as 'generally recognized as safe' (GRAS) and that are supported by scientific and clinical literature."
SpeedWeed founder and CEO, A.J. Gentile, added, "We are pleased to serve as a retail distributor and test market for Tauriga's innovative natural medicine products. We believe these products can improve the experiential component for our clients, and our ability to offer new ancillary products is another example of our commitment to customer service. We look forward to further developing our relationship with Tauriga as we continue to grow our customer base with high customer ratings."
Tauriga plans to increase its presence in the overall natural medicine sector beyond medicinal cannabis-containing products. Company Chairman & CEO, Dr. Stella M. Sung states, "Ultimately, we hope to launch an integrated family of natural health care products that will improve the overall experience of the medical marijuana patient and encourage them to use medical marijuana responsibly. Furthermore, we believe our non-cannabis products may be sold through many different channels, which will potentially allow us to more quickly access markets and early revenues."
