YIELD GROWTH Announces it has Completed Formulations and Selected THC strains for 9 Cannabis Products to be Sold in Oregon, USA

February 12, 2019 – Vancouver, B.C. –  The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announce that it has finalized product formulations and selected all THC and CBD strains for its first 9 products to launch in Oregon through a 400 retail distribution network.

 

Pursuant to its agreement with a licensed cannabis processing facility in Oregon, Yield Growth subsidiary UJ Topicals’ branded products will be launching in the Oregon legal cannabis market.   The products include CBD and THC oils, Analgesic Topical Gel with THC and CBD, Pain Balm with THC and CBD, Massage Oil with THC and CBD, and 3 types of capsules containing THC and Ayurvedic herbal formulations, blended with ingredients that have been used to treat arthritis and chronic pain.  All of the cannabis topical products have been formulated based on Urban Juve proprietary formulas, for which 11 provisional patents have been filed in the U.S.

 

“We have formulated our products with very high concentrations of THC and CBD for maximum effect,” says Penny Green, CEO of The Yield Growth Corp. “It’s our hope that Oregon residents will embrace our cannabis products as viable treatments for chronic pain.”

 

Cannabis treatment is effective for chronic pain and nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, according to a 2017 report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

 

Chronic pain is the most common reason given for medical marijuana prescriptions in the U.S., and chronic pain affects an estimated 100 million Americans, according to an article in healthaffairs.org.

 

According to Statista, in 2018, legal sales of  cannabis amounted to nearly 10 billion U.S. dollars, and sales are projected to be over $16 billion in 2021, of which the State of Oregon is expected to account for almost $1 billion.

YIELD GROWTH Announces Completion of FDA Compliant Evaluation with Human Subjects to Establish an SPF Factor of 31 for Urban Juve’s Sunscreen Formula

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 29, 2019 — The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (C:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) (Frankfort: YG3) announces completion of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) compliant tests on human subjects to evaluate the effectiveness of Urban Juve’s proprietary sunscreen formula by determining a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) on human skin of 31.

 

SPF Factor 31 established for Urban Juve’s Sunscreen

 

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, SPF 30 product blocks 97% of UVB rays. Both the American Academy of Dermatology and the Canadian Dermatology Association advise using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.  Urban Juve’s sunscreen formula also passed the FDA broad spectrum test.  Sunscreen products that pass the FDA broad spectrum test are allowed to be labeled as “Broad Spectrum”, meaning they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  According to the FDA, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Current estimates are that one in five Americans are at risk of developing skin cancer in their lifetime. Exposure to natural and artificial ultraviolet (UV) light has a direct impact on a person’s risk of developing skin cancer — despite age or skin type.

 

Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve’s sunscreen contains natural ingredients and is free of petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, sulfates and parabens. Yield Growth subsidiary UJ Topicals has the rights to infuse this sunscreen formula with Cannabidiol (CBD).

 

According to Statista, the global sun care market value was approximately $15.83 billion U.S. dollars in 2015, and is forecasted to reach $24.91 billion by 2024. 

 

The SPF evaluation for the Urban Juve sunscreen formula was completed by a fully independent testing facility at a laboratory in New York City, New York, USA, in compliance with FDA rules and regulations.

Markets for CBD Products to Explode with New U.S. Hemp Legislation

FN Media Group Presents USA News Group News Commentary

 

 

LOS ANGELES – January 23, 2019 – USA News Group – By removing hemp from the Controlled Substances Act via an amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill, U.S. Congress appears to have cleared a path for American companies interested in using hemp and its extracts. Retailers selling those products are predicted to see an explosion in market share as a result.

 

The market for CBD products is already significant and has increased the worth of a growing list of so-called mainstream cannabis participants including MariMed Inc. (OTC: MRMD), Canopy Growth Inc. (TSX: WEED) (NYSE:CGC) and Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX:CRON).

 

While the retail market for marijuana is booming, the CBD products business appears to be about to swing the doors wide open. One early innovator in the space is The Yield Growth Corp., which is attracting plenty of interest. The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) has developed a line of wellness and beauty products that make the most of what the hemp plant can offer legally, as well as offering the opportunity to infuse those products with THC or CBD where legal.

 

Food is a logical leader

 

The hemp is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fats, protein and other nutritional benefits, and it provides what’s described as a “nutty flavor” that goes well in foodstuffs. You can find hemp seeds, hemp milk and hemp-based meat alternatives at specialty grocery stores if you look. Those are made mostly from hemp imported from Europe, Canada and elsewhere. Based on the legalization of hemp, the demand for hemp foods will increase and with it, broader access to domestic U.S. hemp.

 

All food and drinks infused with CBD will still have to be approved and regulated by the FDA, but that appears to be a small barrier for such a lucrative market.

 

Health supplements and wellness

 

Many people would like the nutritional benefits of hemp without having to eat hemp seeds or a veggie burger. Hemp and hemp-derived CBD extracts, proteins and its isolates are a quicker, easier way to consume. Hemp-seed oil and extracts have also been shown to help with skin and hair disorders. In fact, CBD has been shown to possess potential benefits in dealing with everything from anxiety, sleep and pain disorders to epilepsy.

 

Hemp and hemp-seed supplement makers are expected to continue to operate without much change, but CBD supplements will probably have to alter their terminology, along with the CBD infused food and drinks. Clearly there is going to a be a whole new supply of products entering chains like Whole Foods, and even stores like Kroger and Safeway.

 

Cosmetics and beauty products

 

Already one of the largest sectors of hemp-based products in America, cosmetics made with the plant is about to get bigger. You can find lotions, lip balms, soap, lipstick, makeup and a variety of beauty products made with hemp and hemp-derived CBD at retailers and online.  With legal hemp, expect more physical shelf space to be devoted this line as the hemp popularity increases.

 

A first-mover in this category is The Yield Growth Corp., whose unique approach aims to sell its base products nearly anywhere in the world, and then capitalize on any market that has legalized recreational use of THC or CBD. In this way, they are opening new markets with the legalization as a pathway to larger market share.

 

The Yield Growth Corp. has multiple major brands to provide a portfolio in the developing CBD space. Under the brand Urban Juve, they currently support a set of nearly 50 products that are launching in 2019. Based in Canada, the company has already completed 26 Health Canada registrations. The initial launch will consist of base products only.

 

The Yield Growth Corp. also has granted CROP Infrastructure Corp., which grows, produces, and sells cannabis products, the rights to distribute Urban Juve products in Italy. CROP has a foothold in California, Nevada, and Washington State, and have recently expanded into Jamaica looking to capitalize on the ideal growing conditions there.

 

Pet treats and toys

 

There’s a growing body of research showing that hemp and CBD extracts can help our pets similar to the ways they help us. Already veterinarians and pet owners are using hemp-seed extracts for nose and ear afflictions; CBD is also being widely adopted to treat anxiety and pain among dogs and cats without harmful side effects of some mainstream therapies. Of course, these produces will be regulated by the FDA. And since hemp fibers make a tough, durable rope or toy for chewing and tug-of-war, our furry friends will be chewing on hemp more often, too.

 

Legislation Means A Huge New Playing Field That’s Wide Open

 

Already market watchers say industrial hemp may be yield bigger cash crop than marijuana, with its seeds, stalks, fibers and cannabinoids all used to make the innovative products. There are a number of commonplace goods we use every day that will be impacted by hemp legalization.

 

Cannabis and hemp supporting companies already moving on opportunities in the now wide-open marketplace can gain a significant edge from the new products. These include:

 

MariMed Inc. (OTCQB:MRMD) provides turnkey solutions to cannabis cultivators, producers, and dispensaries. The company specializes in solutions for securing and operating facilities, manufacturing and processing, dispensary, layouts, and designs, merchandising and sales. They have assisted clients with securing state-issued cannabis operating licenses in eight states with licensed partners and distributors in RI, DE, NV, MA, and MD and working with manufacturers in CA, CO, AZ, OR, WA and ME.

 

Canopy Growth Inc. (TSX:WEED) (NYSE:CGC) is the world’s largest diversified cannabis company. Canopy boasts a wide offering of distinct brands and curated cannabis varieties in dried, oil and capsule forms.

 

Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX:CRON)  is hoping to grow through providing medical marijuana to international markets. The company has an exclusive cannabis supply agreement with Pohl-Boskamp, which distributes products to more than 12,000 pharmacies in Germany. Cronos is participating in a joint venture to supply medical marijuana to Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia.

YIELD GROWTH Enters New Vertical with Definitive Agreement to Acquire 8 Wellness Beverage Formulas for CBD Infusion

January 17, 2019 – Vancouver, B.C. –  The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) is pleased to announce it has entered into a definitive agreement with Bhavna Solecki and Vivek Taneja (“vendors”) to purchase eight wellness beverage formulas designed to be infused with CBD and THC, in addition to a capsule product intended to treat hangovers (the “Night Before Anti-Hangover Capsules”).

 

The formulas have been developed to offer various health benefits, including an energy boost, hangover treatment, and formulas to boost brain function, reduce anxiety, improve immunity, remove toxins and reduce inflammation. The formulations were developed in India based on Ayurvedic medicine using botanicals, fruit extracts and spices.

 

Bhavna Solecki is a natural health practitioner and is engaged in research in Ayurvedic science.  She has been involved in creating and developing products for Yield subsidiary Urban Juve.  Vivek Taneja is an engineer with over 25 years of experience in the beverage industry developing processes for Coca-Cola, Nestle and other beverage companies.

 

Pursuant to the agreement, Yield has agreed to pay the vendors $100,000 to acquire the assets, payable in 200,000 shares and 200,000 warrants to purchase shares at $0.60 per share for one year.  Additional compensation will be paid for filing of a provisional patent and passing stability and preservative testing and commercial launch of the products.  In addition, the vendors are entitled to a 2% royalty of net revenues.

 

Following the acquisition, Yield Growth subsidiary, UJ Beverages will pursue stability and preservative testing and development of a beverage brand and alliances with licensed cannabis manufacturers in Canada and various states in the U.S.

 

“We are very excited to acquire these formulas as the first acquisition for our cannabis beverage line,” says Yield CEO Penny Green.  “We intend to leverage the expertise and international distribution channels that we have developed for our topicals products.”

 

According to analysts at Canaccord Genuity, cannabis and CBD-infused beverages have the potential to outperform cannabis products, reaching up to 20% of the market for cannabis-containing consumables by 2022.

YIELD GROWTH Announces 2nd Manufacturing Run of Product & U.S. Expansion

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 15, 2019 – The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) is pleased to announce a second manufacturing run of 5,000 units of its Urban Juve Lip Balm in response to the product’s warm reception from customers and retailers.

 

Urban Juve Lip Balm is currently available for sale in Canada through www.urbanjuve.comand through retail outlets in Canada.

Yield Growth is at the beginning of its road map to become the world’s largest cannabis topicals company.  Its subsidiary, Urban Juve, is commercializing its catalogue of over 50 products and building international distribution channels.

 

Developed and manufactured in Vancouver, Urban Juve Lip Balm is currently available for sale in Canada through urbanjuve.com and through retail outlets in Canada. It retails for $10 – $15.  Canadian retailers can purchase Urban Juve lip balms in 20-unit display boxes.

 

Given the recent adoption of the US 2018 Farm Bill, Urban Juve is currently designing packaging for the United States market and will soon be selling hemp-based products to retailers in the US.  Urban Juve is targeting key retailers in North America including stores specializing in skin care and makeup such as Sephora and Ulta Beauty, specialty grocers such as Whole Foods, wellness chains such as Planet Organic and Sobeys, and pharmacies with a focus on personal care products and cosmetics such as Shoppers Drug Mart and London Drugs.

 

The North America beauty and personal care products market was valued at US$93.81 billion in 2017 and is likely to reach US$110.28 billion by 2026, according to inkwoodresearch.com.

 

Grounded in ancient Ayurvedic principles, Urban Juve’s proprietary lip balm formulation is crafted with natural ingredients including hemp oils.  The lip balm – like all Urban Juve products —  is made without parabens, mineral oil, sulphates, artificial fragrances, dyes, formaldehyde forming agents and phthalates, and  is never tested on animals.

 

Containing a nourishing combination of hemp root oil and hemp seed oil, Urban Juve lip balm helps repair and moisturize dry, chapped lips. Hemp root oil has been used in Ayurvedic formulations for thousands of years, but Urban Juve is the first company in Canada to use the ingredient in cosmetic formulations. Both antioxidizing and anti-inflammatory, hemp root oil promotes healing and helps increase the absorption of other active ingredients.

 

Urban Juve Lip Balm also contains beeswax, coconut oil and castor oil, which create a barrier that seals in moisture and protects against the elements. Cooling peppermint essential oil provides instant relief.

 

The lip balm, the first product to be launched by Urban Juve, was launched less than two months ago.

 

Profit margins for concentrates and infused products in the cannabis sector are estimated at around 32% – significantly higher than those typically realized by alcohol, soft drinks, and cigarettes, according to the 2016 Marijuana Business Factbook.

About The Yield Growth Corp.

YIELDING THE HIGHEST RESULTS

 

We develop Cannabis and wellness-related assets which includes acquisition, development, marketing and sales of wellness products and technology solutions, led by an Ayurvedic-inspired wellness line of topical and therapeutic consumer products, Urban Juve.

 

The Yield Growth Corp. is a diverse team of business executives dedicated to rapid, sustainable financial growth for businesses with viable models for success. The team’s experience spans across venture capital, international investor relations, licensing, intellectual property strategies, and corporate governance best practices in North America. Its directors and officers have experience at multi-billion dollar international companies including MAC Cosmetics, Aritzia, Skechers, Pepsi and Coca-Cola.

 

Yield Growth owns 100% of Urban Juve Provisions Inc., a company subsidiary and its principal asset. Urban Juve is an Ayurveda-inspired skin care and beauty brand that rejuvenates and nourishes from within: spirit to skin. Urban Juve’s key ingredient — cannabis sativa hemp root oil — combines with natural and pure essential oil-based formulations to create quality products that are now available online and will soon be available at select retail stores across Canada.

 

As Yield Growth’s consumer flagship, Urban Juve is a bold brand rooted in the organic synthesis of ancient knowledge and modern techniques to create exceptional beauty and wellness solutions. Ayurvedic knowledge delineates three general categories or skin types, which Urban Juve has translated as Vitalize, Balance and Align, each with its own dedicated range of skin and body care formulations. Urban Juve has created unique formulas for more than 50 pending beauty and wellness products, has registered with Health Canada 26 products containing cannabis sativa hemp oil and has filed 11 provisional patent applications in the United States. Urban Juve’s line of Ayurveda-inspired holistic skin care products are now sold in Canada, with distribution agreements signed for the United States and Italy.

 

The Urban Juve Distinction

 

The Ayurvedic knowledge and recipes at the heart of Urban Juve take root in a lifetime of experience applied to holistic health care. Now, the brand is flowering into a trusted range of custom-crafted, patented recipes and blends. The formulas centre around the medicinal properties of the root of cannabis sativa, also known as hemp root.

 

In India, Ayurveda makes use of Cannabis in more than 80 traditional herbal formulas with results that range beyond mere physical and aesthetic impact. Oil that has been extracted from the hemp root is recorded in ancient medicine as providing skin repairing and anti-inflammatory effects. As this critical ingredient is balanced and formulated with companion botanicals and carrier oils, it stimulates the healthy regrowth of skin at the molecular level. By promoting the natural death of unhealthy cells, Urban Juve’s recipes renew and restore skin’s health in a fashion that transcends conventional notions of cosmetics. Urban Juve is more than skin-deep beauty, it is a full embrace of the restorative properties of the natural world.

 

Urban Juve Product Launches

 

Urban Juve’s introductory product line include: an anti-aging serum and a lip balm. The Anti-Aging Serum ($85 CDN) incorporates the soothing qualities of hemp root and hemp seed oil with a proprietary blend of essential oils. This tailored combination absorbs into and hydrates skin cells.

 

The Urban Juve Lip Balm ($10 CDN) creates a soothing protective layer with coconut oil and beeswax, which provides a healthy, hydrating environment for the critical hemp root and seed oils to moisturize and freshen. A hint of peppermint tops off the formula for a fresh feeling, flavour and aroma.

 

The company is currently manufacturing another ten products and within its first year expects to grow to offer as many as 50 SKUs. These may include massage and body oils, face mists, moisturizer, deodorant, and topical creams for acute and chronic pain.

 

A modern, Ayurveda-inspired wellness brand, Urban Juve is focused on the nourishment, rejuvenation and transformation of the body from the inside out. Urban Juve inspires wellness-conscious consumers to #findyourjuve with personalized and carefully crafted, Cannabis Sativa-infused cosmetic and therapeutic products.

 

Ayurveda-Inspired Brand

 

We revel in old-world traditions – tapping into the ancient medicinal knowledge of Ayurveda, to create products focused on our actual body biology needs.

 

Hemp Oil Infused Products

 

All of Urban Juve’s products contain natural Cannabis Sativa and hemp oil – a powerhouse oil packed with antioxidants, essential amino acids and vitamins and minerals, including calcium, potassium, magnesium, copper, folate, vitamins B-6 and E.
