Puration and NCM Biotech Enter Agreement To Accelerate FDA Approval of Candidate Pharmaceutical Products Derived From Patented Cannabis Extraction Process

Dallas, Texas - April 4, 2017 – Puration, Inc. (USOTC: PURA) and NCM Biotech, Inc. today announced that NCM Biotech has licensed to PURA the right to utilize NCM Biotech’s patented cannabis extraction process to produce cannabis extracts for infusion into recreational, fitness wellness, alternative medicine and beauty products.  NCM Biotech exclusively owns U.S. Patent No. 9,199,960 entitled “METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING HERBACEOUS PLANT MATERIALS INCLUDING THE CANNABIS PLANT.”   The license of the process to PURA is the first and only license NCM Biotech has executed.

License Agreement To Accelerate FDA Approval of Candidate Pharmaceutical Products

NCM Biotech’s medical advisory team includes John N. Gaitanis, MD., Director of Child Neurology at Tufts Medical Center/Floating Hospital for Children;  Lloyd R. Saberski, M.D., Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Chronic Pain Management, Yale University, and John McMichael, Ph.D., President & CEO Beech Tree Labs.  Research and development with NCM Biotech’s patented process has demonstrated a high potential for bringing FDA approved pharmaceutical products to market for the treatment of multiple neurological disorders and cancer.  The license agreement with PURA is specifically designed to accelerate funding for the FDA approval process through proceeds generated by PURA’s sales of extracts for infusion into non-pharmaceutical consumer products.  Beech Tree Labs is slated to manage the FDA approval process.

“I have received doctor feedback from more than one of our research initiatives that extracts coming from NCM Biotech’s patented process are superior in purity and quality to any other available cannabis extracts,” said Frederick Ferri, CEO and Founder of NCM Biotech. “Some feedback has specifically indicated that a number of our candidate pharmaceutical products under development have a greater efficacy potential than GW Pharmaceutical products and candidate products.  We are very enthusiastic about working with Puration to rapidly ramp-up non-pharmaceutical extract sales offering the highest quality extracts available in the growing cannabis market, and in turn using those sales to fund our ongoing pharmaceutical product development and FDA approval process.”

PURA Introduces EVERx CBD Water: More Cannabis Infused Products Coming Soon

PURA recently launched its first cannabis infused consumer product. PURA introduced EVERx CBD Infused Bottled Water at the recent Arnold Schwarzenegger Annual Sports Festival, in Columbus Ohio.   PURA plans to introduce three new EVERx CBD Infused sports nutritional supplement products later this month in conjunction with the annual cannabis 420 celebration.

“The license agreement announced today is a substantial and strategic update to the joint venture agreement under which PURA and NCM have already been working,” said Brian Shibley, CEO of Puration. “The license agreement is a more reliable and financeable asset than the joint venture agreement. With the license agreement, we anticipate securing conventional financing to build a commercial extraction lab that can support the magnitude of sales interest we have already generated with just the introduction of one product so far.  In fact, look for the first of two anticipated lab facility announcements later this month.”

Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo April 22-23

PURA and NCM Biotech are both participating at the upcoming Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo April 22-23, in Fort Worth, Texas.  PURA’s EVERx Products will be featured in both the AmeriCanna Cafe tradeshow booth and in the NCM Biotech booth.  Come to the conference to learn more about PURA and NCM and the license agreement announced today.

Sales Up 50%; 2 More Dividends; Trump Actually Supports Cannabis And The Best Is Yet To Come

UFC #3 Ranked Women's Bantam Weight EVERx Spokesperson Juliana Pena

UFC #3 Ranked Women's Bantam Weight EVERx Spokesperson Juliana Pena

North American Cannabis Holdings (USMJ) and Puration (PURA) have started 2017 at a gangbuster rate, and we anticipate the pace to pickup from here.  We have initiated a transaction with Aternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) to launch a cannabis retail payment system, and another transaction involving Spanish Peaks ScrumpDelicacies and ML Capital Group (USOTC: MLCG) to enhance our cannabis infused edibles business with a luxury cannabis tour offering starting in Colorado and expanding into other regions.  The cannabis tour service will be similar to wine enthusiasts tours through Napa Valley and Tuscany.  We have launched the EVERx Cannabis Infused Sports and Fitness Nutritional Supplement Brand with a tremendously successful event at the Arnold Sports Festival, and we have seen our quarterly revenue numbers jump by nearly fifty percent.  Our humble beginnings back in 2013 initiated by four US Military Veterans inspired by the use of cannabinol (CBD) to ease the symptoms of a seizure disordered suffered by one of the Veterans’ daughters have now matured into a promising operation with blockbuster potential.

USMJ Is About To Do To Cannabis What NETFLIX Did To Cable And UBER Did To Taxis

USMJ is preparing to transform organizationally extending its lead in the cannabis sector even further ahead of the field of cannabis sector companies vying for investor attention.  No, that is not code for an impending reverse split.  A reverse split is not part of our plan to transform.  USMJ has honed and continues to improve upon a business model where it pilots a variety of cannabis enterprises and then rewards it investors by issuing stock in spinoffs of successful pilots ready to standalone.  The planned organizational transformation will be initiated by a strategic acquisition bringing new key talent and assets into USMJ, and in so doing, taking USMJ’s pilot and spinoff business model to a whole new level.  Nothing like USMJ’s pilot and spinoff business model exits in the cannabis sector, and what USMJ is about to introduce with this coming transformation will change the cannabis sector the way NETFLIX changed cable television and UBER changed taxi and limo service.

The Transformation Begins 4/20 2017

The annual cannabis industry 420 celebration is only a month away.  Watch out next week when USMJ and PURA announce a coming trade show exhibit in conjunction with this year’s 420 celebration as the first small part of the two Companies’ plan to introduce the industry changing transformation.  USMJ and PURA will be joined at the 420 trade show by the target acquisition that will catalyze USMJ’s transformation.  The trade show will also include the official launch of the AmeriCanna Cafe.  After acquiring the flagship City Blends Smoothie Cafe in located in Dallas in the summer of 2015 in order to develop a fast casual cannabis concept restaurant, USMJ will demo the AmeriCanna Cafe at the 420 conference to begin marketing license, franchise and partnership opportunities to restaurant investors. 

Nothing Proves Out A Pilot Opportunity Like Revenue

USMJ has published a business plan forecast for $2 million in revenue expected to result from the ongoing expansion of its existing pilot operations with the bulk of the revenue coming from its AmeriCanna Cafe pilot and live launch.  PURA has published a $3 million business plan revenue forecast based on the infusion of its proprietary cannabis extracts into foods and beverages.  Management of both Companies is enthusiastic about progress so far this year and confidently maintaining the previously published forecasts.

ALYI Is On Its Way And Spanish Peaks Has A Surprise

The dividend issue of PURA stock to USMJ shareholders was a long process, but one rich with experience that will be evident in the future issuance of dividends.  Management anticipates a more deliberate execution of the dividend issuance of ALYI stock to USMJ shareholder and of Spanish Peaks stock to PURA shareholders.  MLCG shareholders will also benefit from USMJ and PURA’s dividend experience in regard to the issuance of Spanish Peaks stock to MLCG shareholders.  While Spanish Peaks is currently a private company – spoiler alert – a Spanish Peaks reverse merger with an existing public company is in the works.  PURA and MLCG shareholders can anticipate receiving Spanish Peaks public stock in conjunction with the PURA MLCG Spanish Peaks transaction.  Stay tuned for future announcements to learn more.

Don’t Listen To The News – The White House Supports Cannabis

President Trump is a populist president and “populist” is not necessarily a dirty word. Meriam-Webster defines populist as “a member of a political party claiming to represent the common people.”  Now “populist” might be a dirty word if the actions of a politician only “claim” to represent the common people while the true intent is something else.  Populist politics is sometimes compared to parenting.  Parents shouldn’t always give children what they want.  Except voters aren’t children.  Please keep in mind, nothing here is intended to support or attack the Trump Presidency.  Our interest is very specifically in the eventual Federal legalization of cannabis, and in the meantime, a continued federal laissez fair policy toward states’ legalization of cannabis.  Our intent here is to cut through barrage of opinionated, riot inspiring news to take a sober look at the reality of the cannabis situation when it comes to what the Federal Government may or may not do in regard to the enforcement of federal cannabis laws. From our vantage point, we believe the media reaction to Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments and Jeff Sessions stick in the mud personal opinion about cannabis is much ado about nothing.

It’s difficult to argue that  President Trump is at least acting as a “populist” politician.  We’ll leave it to you to judge his true populist intent.  We believe giving voters what they want is a good thing and we hope that’s what President Trump is really up to. We won’t argue against characterizing President Trump as offensive.  President Trump seems to have a gift when it comes to offensiveness.  Many of us have a crotchety old relative, probably about President Trump’s age, that manages to insult everyone at the Thanksgiving table, but he’s family and everyone still loves him. 

So Press Secretary Spicer makes some disturbing comments about the Federal Government enforcing federal marijuana laws in spite of local state marijuana legalization.  However, a few days later, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement to counter balance Press Secretary Spicer’s earlier comments.  Attorney General Sessions talked about “responsible laws,” and acknowledging states’ rights to “pass the laws they choose.”  An optimistic interpretation of the disturbing statements followed by a balancing counter-statement might be that the Trump Administration is attempting to find a “populist” balance. While giving voters what they want might be a lofty idea, not all voters want the same thing. In fact, voters can often be at odds as to what they want.  Every issue in America can’t logistically be taken to a popular vote.  It might be sheer genius to test the waters on issues by suggesting an extreme policy; afterwards assessing the reaction to the extreme policy suggestion, and ultimately backing off from the extreme suggestion to simply implement a practical policy that the majority of voters can all tolerate.  Press Secretary Spicer just might be the White House sonar pinging for mines so the White House can steer clear and maneuver through populist waters.

Remember the transitive property from high school math?  If A=B. and B=C, then A=C.  Ok, so it appears that an anti-marijuana sentiment exists amongst those voters that put Trump in the White House.  President Trump, crotchety old relative charisma aside, might deserve some credit for trying to acknowledge the sentiments of those that elected him.  However, clearly the majority of Americans are pro marijuana legalization.  If President Trump is a true populist trying to give voters what they want (not just the voters that voted for him), and if the majority voters want legal marijuana, then A=C and President Trump’s Administration will not only support states marijuana laws, but eventual federal marijuana legalization overall.

Some may think President Trump is not a genuine populist and that he is only laying claim to a populist agenda in order to advance some nefarious counter agenda.  If that’s the case, let’s have faith that the American people will do what they do and rise to the occasion in the face of such treachery. Either way, if he’s a really a populist, legal cannabis is safe.  If he’s poser with a nefarious agenda, the American people will do what they do and cannabis is still safe.

Corporations Backing The Legalization Of Cannabis For Wellness Present Texas Teen With Commendation For Leadership And Bravery

Updated March 1, 2017 - Scroll To End To See Jaren's Commendation

Dallas, TX – March 1, 2017 - North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USOTC: USMJ) in conjunction with Puration, Inc. (USOTC: PURA), ML Capital Group, Inc. (USOTC: MLCG), City Blends Smoothie Cafe, and Nature Comfort Meds today announced the presentation of a Commendation for Leadership and Bravery to Jaren Suber in recognition of his dauntless six year battle against a rare pediatric brain cancer and his recent decision to lead the way for cancer patients everywhere by exploring the potential of cannabinol (CBD) treatment.  The award was presented yesterday at USMJ’s prototype AmeriCanna Cafe in the Dallas Metroplex.

JAREN Award.jpg

In conjunction with the commendation, Jaren, accompanied by his mother and father, will realize his lifelong dream of visiting the Hawaiian Islands.  The trip is made possible by MLCG and its subsidiary, Platinum Tours of Maui.  The Subers will embark on a luxury, one-week adventure, including airfare, 5-star accommodation and a “dream tour” across the island of Maui, created specifically for Jaren, culminating in a private helicopter excursion like no other.

Upon their return form Maui, Jaren is invited to visit a CBD cancer treatment trial for evaluation as a candidate for treatment.  The ongoing trial is being conducted by PURA’s joint venture partner, Natures Comfort Meds.

Jaren was diagnosed six years ago with Pineoblastoma, a rare pediatric brain cancer.  After years of battling his cancer with conventional treatments, Jaren recently decided to pursue cannabinol (CBD) treatment after receiving news in January this year that his cancer was progressing.  CBD comes from the cannabis plant.  It is a non-hallucinogenic cannabinoid that has been shown to have a number of medicinal benefits from treating arthritis to reducing cancer cells.

Jaren’s mother, Karen Suber recently came into USMJ’s prototype AmeriCanna Cafe located in the Dallas metroplex asking for CBD.  Karen shared Jaren’s story with Troy Suddarth when she visited the store.  USMJ purchased the City Blends Cafe licensed shop form Mr. Suddarth and he continues to work with USMJ running the store and helping to develop the AmeriCanna Cafe concept.  Troy was moved by Jaren’s story and jumped into action to rally USMJ resources and partnerships to do whatever could be done for Jaren.

Texas Teen With Rare Pediatric Brain Cancer Wants To Try CBD Treatment

February 25, 2017

Karen Suber recently came into North American Cannabis Holding’s (“USMJ”) prototype AmeriCanna Cafe located in the Dallas metroplex asking for cannabinol known commonly as “CBD.”  CBD comes from the cannabis plant.  It is a non-hallucinogenic cannabinoid that has been shown to have a number of medicinal benefits from treating arthritis to reducing cancer cells.   

Karen had read about USMJ’s work with Puration (“PURA”) to introduce a variety of cannabis infused consumer foods and beverages.  She was looking for something that might help her son, Jaren Suber, diagnosed six years earlier with Pineoblastoma, a rare pediatric brain cancer.  The Suber family received news in January this year, the Jaren’s cancer was progressing.

USMJ purchased a City Blends Smoothie Cafe licensed store in the Dallas Metroplex in 2015 as the foundation of a plan to build the AmeriCanna Cafe concept restaurant.  The purchased City Blends Smoothie Cafe is where Karen came to find CBD.  Her timing could be fortuitous. 

Texas is required to issue three medical cannabis licenses by September 1, 2017 under the Compassionate Use Act passed into law by Governor Gregg Abbot in 2015.  At the same time USMJ and PURA have collaborated to introduce their first CBD Infused product.  EVERx CBD Infused Bottled Water will be officially launched Friday, March 3, 2017 at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Annual Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio.

Karen shared Jaren’s story with Troy Suddarth when she visited the store.  USMJ purchased the City Blends Cafe shop form Mr. Suddarth and he continues to continues to work with USMJ running the store and helping to develop the AmeriCanna Cafe concept.   She told Troy about Jaren’s adventure at the White House visiting President Obama thanks to the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.  She shared how brave Jaren has been and how Jaren no longer wants to pursue chemotherapy, but is set on trying CBD.  She also mentioned Jaren’s dream of traveling to Hawaii.  She sent a link to Jaren’s GoFundMe account to raise funds for a trip to Hawaii.

Troy was moved by Jaren’s story and jumped into action to rally USMJ and PURA’s combined resources to do whatever could be done for Jaren.  PURA had recently entered into a business deal with ML Capital Group (“MLCG”), a company that happens to run luxury tours in Hawaii, and now in partnership with PURA, is introducing cannabis luxury tours.  Separately, PURA has a joint venture agreement with a not-for-profit organization called Natures Comfort Meds (“NCM”).  NCM has a patented process for extracting cannabinoids form cannabis.  NCM’s extracts are being used in trial treatments of various conditions and diseases to include the treatment of cancer.

On Tuesday, February 28th, 2017, at USMJ’s prototype AmeriCanna Cafe store in the Dallas Metroplex, Troy Suddarth, on behalf of USMJ, PURA, NCM and MLCG, will present Jaren and his family with a travel package to visit the Island of Maui in Hawaii.  He and his mom and dad will fly on Delta Airlines and Stay at the Grand Wailea Resort.  They will be transported by MLCG’s Platinum Tours and be invited on several excursions around the Island.  Upon their return, they will be invited to visit one of NCM’s treatment trials for evaluation as a candidate for CBD treatment.

CBD is an ideal component of a pre and post workout regime.  CBD works as an anti-inflammatory and relieves muscle spasms.  CBD also works to relieve pain.  CBD protects the heart, lungs and brain.  Often essential when it comes to high intensity and competitive training, CBD reduces nausea, increases appetite and aides sleep.  Ongoing research continues in regard to CBD as a treatment for sports related head trauma.  CBD is not just a good addition to an athletes training regime; It can be the foundation of a healthy wellness routine for everyone.

The bottled water market was valued at US $157.27 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach US $279.65 billion by 2020 (Transparency Market Research). Given the magnitude of the bottled water market, management plans to review first quarter performance and potentially increase the first year target at that time.

North American Cannabis Holdings and Puration Shareholders Update

Based on the personal experience of a founder with a daughter that discovered relief from a seizure disorder through the use of CBD, North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USMJ) entered the cannabis sector piloting various cannabis enterprises in the fall of 2013.  The idea was to find one specific enterprise through the piloting process on which the Company could concentrate all its efforts.  What USMJ management discovered instead, is that the cannabis sector at large was in need of a business that could continuously connect investors and cannabis enterprise entrepreneurs.  The spinoff last year of a cannabis extraction enterprise into Puration, Inc. (PURA) and the subsequent dividend of PURA stock to USMJ shareholders has been a milestone event in the construction of a sustainable operation that can continuously connect investors and cannabis entrepreneurs.  Now the Company has executed a second spinoff transaction with Alternet Systems, Inc. (ALYI) and more are in the works.

Marijuana Legalization: History In The Making

The evolving legalization of cannabis in the United States is a very exciting time that will leave its mark on the history of economics, medicine, and democracy.  Legalization has not only created a new industry with $7 billion in annual sales and expected to grow to $50 billion in annual sales over the next 10 years, it has brought relief to countless health issues that not only debilitate impacted individuals, but also end-up debilitating entire families both emotionally and economically.  The election of Donald Trump is a loud and boisterous message to the Federal Government, that Americans are not happy with business-as-usual in Washington DC.  Whether or not America will be happy with Donald Trump as an alternative is yet to be seen.  However, an even louder protest to business-as-usual in Washington DC has been overshadowed in the media by the multiple controversies surrounding Donald Trump.  On November 8th, 2016, in direct opposition to federal law, eight more states legalized marijuana.

The ‘Will-Of-The-People’ Finds A Way Around Federal Intransigence 

More than half of the 50 states in the United States have legalized marijuana now in direct opposition to federal law.  Not since the Civil War has the United States seen the exercise of such state power over federal authority.  While the media is frothing over tweets, offensive statements, and the selection of cabinet members whose names no one will remember even if their appointments are confirmed, they’re missing a history making precedence.  The citizens of the United States have rediscovered a founding fathers’ instituted check-and-balance that has been overlooked for a long-time.  U.S. citizens are invoking state-citizenship over U.S.-citizenship by voting for laws within their state on a matter where the U.S. government is not representing the will-of-the-people

Drilling down on the idea of “not-being-happy-with-business-as-usual-in-Washington-DC” might lead to a further refinement of “unhappy” that more specifically identifies the “root-cause” of “unhappiness.”    Evidence suggests that “root-cause” might be a Washington mentality that has transpired over time to rationalize a perversion of democratic capitalism with the idea that the will-of-the-people is subordinate to the will-of-Corporate-America.   How else could the Federal Government think a trillion-dollar bailout of failed corporations was in the best interest of U.S. citizens?  How disheartening to know that the Federal Government believes more in the executives that cratered the U.S. economy than in the entrepreneurial spirit and capacity of U.S. citizens at large to fill the void left in the aftermath of the failed fortune-500 executives.  Did it cross the mind of anyone working in the Federal Government that the inherent message of the bailout to American entrepreneurs was “you don’t have a chance”.  The Federal Government will use the taxes paid by citizens to subsidize the failure of large corporations (not to mention the lifestyles of the executives running large corporations) before they will allow entrepreneurs to introduce a new-way, a new-technology or a new-industry that advances the natural economic lifecycle of innovation and obsolescence.  The Federal Government delivered a message that upward mobility in America is dead.

With the election of Donald Trump and the ongoing legalization, the American People have responded to the Federal Government’s prioritization of Corporate America over Citizens.  Donald Trump is indeed a loud and boisterous response, but he may or may not be a solution.  The rolling state-by-state legalization of marijuana is a solution.  Legal marijuana is the will-of-the-people.  It’s creating jobs, generating taxes and providing medical benefit.  It’s inspiring entrepreneurialism and reigniting hope for upward mobility in America.  The will of the people has spoken through the Federalism instituted by the founding fathers as yet another check and balance to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness within the United States against the inevitability of periodic presiding government bodies that lose their way.  The process of marijuana legalization is bigger than just the legalization of marijuana.  The Marijuana legalization process is paving a path for the will-of-the-people to advance on multiple fronts in reclaiming a balanced democratic-capitalism that prioritizes the will-of-the-people over the ongoing subsidizing of outdated corporations and the idea that they are too-big-to-fail.  American Citizens clearly believe in the entrepreneurial spirit and capacity of the United States.  The state-by-state legalization of marijuana is just a first initiative of a repeatable state-by-state approach to reinstituting confidence in the entrepreneurialism of America amongst the state and federal law makers.  The days of politicians that prioritize the longevity of legacy corporations over the will-of-the-people are numbered.  Underneath all the media noise and uproar, the founding principles of America are prevailing.  The will-of-the-people has found a way.  Perhaps with a characteristically American sense of humor, marijuana has become the cornerstone of the latest historic renewal of America’s commitment to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Civil War, World War, Depression, Trade Unions, Civil Rights, and Anti-War Protests are only a few of the headlines in the history of defending and improving democracy and the American-way-of-life.  And now, the rebirth of Federalism through the legalization of marijuana is the latest headline in the history of defending and improving democracy and the American-way-of-life.

Proud To Be A Marijuana Advocating American – God Bless The USA

We live in a world today where entrepreneurs and investors have been separated by an entire industry – the financial services industry.  Financial advisors, fund managers and investment brokers stand between entrepreneurs and the investors that breathe life into the creative aspirations of entrepreneurs.  The financial industry interloping is far more pervasive than most might think.  Consider the common home purchase transaction.  The financial industry is there between buyer and seller.  Mortgage Origination firms provide the mortgage product that funds the purchase of the house, and in turn, the Mortgage Originator sells the mortgage to a Mortgage Servicer.  In light of the 2008 global financial crisis, its common knowledge now that the mortgage industry portion of the overall financial industry was not exactly doing its best in the interest of homeowners.  Bernie Madoff is an exceedingly notorious example of a fund manager not exactly representing the best interest of his investors.  In 2015 alone, regulators suspended or expelled over 1,000 financial brokerage professionals and suspended or expelled over 50 financial brokerage firms.  In spite of all the issues within the financial services industry, the Federal Government has hesitated and delayed the implementation of new Crowdfunding Laws bemoaning the potential problems with entrepreneurial firms raising funds directly from individual investors without the expertise of the Financial Industry intermediaries to protect the interest of individual investors from the intentions of entrepreneurs.

USMJ intends to break down the barriers between entrepreneurs and investors at least within the emerging legal marijuana market.  There is no shortage of entrepreneurial ideas springing up within the legal marijuana sector.  USMJ is exploring new ways to build partnerships between entrepreneurs and the investors that can breathe life into those entrepreneurs’ aspirations.  

USMJ is building that relationship around the public micro-cap corporate structures.  We take no shame in working with securities that are priced at one or two cents or less than a penny.  We are happy to build mutually beneficial relationships with investors that also take no shame in working with securities priced at one or two cents or less.  We recognize the statistical odds of a new business surviving in the long-term is low, let alone the possibility of a new business growing into a Fortune 500.  While we’ll make every effort to succeed in the long-term, our intention is to build candid relationships between our entrepreneurs and our investors that acknowledges the statistics surrounding long-term success of a young business. Accordingly, that candid relationship between entrepreneurs and investors will also recognize that investors can profit on a micro-cap public companies’ multiple milestone success, even though multiple milestone success may not add up in the end to a long-term success. 

Micro-cap public company share prices may increase dramatically in reaction to a milestone success – as much as 100%, or even 1000% and sometimes even more.  Following a milestone success, it is also not uncommon for a micro-cap public company’s share price to retrace back to its starting point prior to the milestone success.  Investors and entrepreneurs can enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship around the lifecycle of milestone successes that characterize the journey of an entrepreneurial enterprise.  Entrepreneurs can gain access to investment capital and investors can enjoy periodic opportunities to take profits when the entrepreneurs reach a next milestone.  Just as we take no shame in working with securities priced at one or two cents or less, we will take no shame in having tried our best to build a Fortune 500 company should we in the end fall short of that goal.

Spinoffs and Dividends

One of the business mechanisms we have implemented in order to reach more entrepreneurs and more investors is the inclusion of a spinoff and dividend strategy.  Last year, in 2015, USMJ spun-off a pilot cannabis extraction project by selling the related assets to a standalone micro-cap public company, Puration, Inc. (PURA). The intention from the onset of the deal with PURA was to issue PURA stock in a dividend distribution to USMJ shareholders.  The idea is to enhance the mutually beneficial relationship between the entrepreneurs and the investors for both the entrepreneurs and the investors.  The entrepreneurs have increased access to capital facilitated by an increase in investment activity incentivized with the offer of a dividend, and the investors have the opportunity to improve their profit potential not just through an increase in share price, but also with the payout of a dividend.  USMJ fought the learning curve on getting the PURA dividend issued, but finally got it issued earlier this month.  All eligible USMJ shareholders have received PURA common stock.  The issued stock is restricted, but shareholders are encouraged to seek exemption from registration avenues for removing restrictions.  USMJ and PURA are currently exploring a universal exemption from registration solution. We expect to publish guidance resulting from our exploration early in January.

Now the Company has executed a second spinoff transaction with Alternet Systems, Inc. (ALYI).  Ideally, with the lessons learned with PURA, the ALYI transaction will proceed more smoothly.  Additional spinoff transactions are in the works.  USMJ management firmly believes that through its ongoing spinoff experience, USMJ can build a formidable platform for launching one marijuana enterprise after another in a manner that provides micro-cap public company investors an unparalleled opportunity to profit from marijuana sector investments.

USMJ’s Future: MassRoots Meets E*Trade

Beyond USMJ’s spinoff and dividend strategy, the Company has another strategic acquisition in the works.  If the acquisition can come to fruition, USMJ obtains an impressive media capacity.  The intent is for USMJ to add a marijuana business sector social media

component to its overall operation.  USMJ is working to launch a social media platform for marijuana entrepreneurs to be able to communicate their vision directly to would be investors.  With the social media platform combined with the ongoing development and evolution of the USMJ spinoff and dividend model, USMJ becomes a marijuana sector specific business that in a Hollywood Movie Pitch sort-of –way, is MassRoots (MSRT) meets E*Trade (ETFC).  USMJ is building a business that lets marijuana sector entrepreneurs speak to marijuana sector investors and opt to invest in those entrepreneurs should they be so inspired.  As stated at the beginning of this presentation, USMJ is working to fill a void in the cannabis sector where investors and cannabis enterprise entrepreneurs can continuously and directly connect.

Thank you for your interest in USMJ.  We wish you all a happy and festive holiday season.

Cannabinoil (CBD) for Fitness and Wellness

CBD is an ideal component of a pre and post workout regime.  CBD works as an anti-inflammatory and relieves muscle spasms.  CBD also works to relieve pain.  CBD protects the heart, lungs and brain.  Often essential when it comes to high intensity and competitive training, CBD reduces nausea, increases appetite and aides sleep.  Ongoing research continues in regard to CBD as a treatment for sports related head trauma.  CBD is not just a good addition to an athletes training regime; It can be the foundation of a healthy wellness routine for everyone (CBD Athletic Recovery).

CBD Water and the North American Cannabis Holdings EVERx Brand

Puration has partnered with North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USMJ) to produce a beverage under the North American Cannabis Holdings EVERx Sports and Fitness Nutritional Supplement Brand Name. EVERx CBD infused water will be marketed and sold by Puration in a campaign designed to complement the comprehensive EVERx brand.  Puration is targeting an initial $1 million in 2017 sales of EVERx CBD infused water into the health conscious bottled water consumer market. The bottled water market was valued at US $157.27 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach US $279.65 billion by 2020 (Transparency Market Research). Given the magnitude of the bottled water market, management plans to review first quarter performance and potentially increase the first year target at that time.

USMJ and PURA Engage Third Prominent Cannabis Sector Public Company in Restaurant and Infused Food and Beverage Strategy

Dallas, Texas – September 22, 2016 – North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USMJ) and Puration, Inc. (PURA) today announced having engaged a third publicly traded company in the development of strategic plans to introduce a cannabis themed restaurant chain and cannabis infused food and beverage business within the State of Colorado.  The third company and potential new partner is already a prominent contender within the cannabis sector.

Cannabis Enterprise Startups Through Pilots and Spinoffs

USMJ entered the cannabis sector in 2013 with a strategy to pilot various cannabis sector enterprises.  The Company planned to facilitate the financing necessary to expand successful pilot projects by spinning projects off into standalone public companies.  PURA is the first spinoff. 

Market and Capital Expansion Through Strategic Partnership

With optimism for the cannabis sector not yet having quite bridged from enthusiasm-for-a-promising-potential-future to momentum-toward-a-foreseeable-emerging-market, USMJ and PURA management are adding strategic partnerships with existing cannabis sector companies to the existing spinoff strategy in order to bridge the gap from enthusiasm to momentum.

Last year USMJ acquired a fitness cafe as a foundation for piloting a cannabis themed cafe and restaurant. USMJ recently entered into a licensing agreement to roll out its AmeriCanna Cafe restaurant in Colorado:

North American Cannabis Holdings Enters $20 Billon Market Signing Initial $1 Million License Agreement with Rocky Mountain High Restaurant Group

PURA has refined a proprietary cannabis extraction process and executed its first agreement to infuse its extracts into food and beverages to be marketed in Colorado:

The consummation of the contemplated agreement with the prominent cannabis sector public company that is the subject of this press release would both expand the market potential of both USMJ and PURA’s opportunities and improve access to capital.

Puration Anticipates Boost To $3 Million Forecast From North American Cannabis Holdings $1 Million License Agreement With Rocky Mountain High Restaurant Group

Dallas, TX – August 12, 2016 – Puration, Inc. (PURA) today announced an anticipated boost to its previously announced $3 million revenue forecast.  A revenue source not included in Puration’s original forecast was added yesterday when North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USMJ) and Rocky Mountain High Restaurant Group signed a $1 million agreement to license the operation of North American’s AmeriCanna Cafe fast casual concept restaurant in turn looking to Puration to deliver all cannabis extracts to be infused into menu items.  While the North American Cannabis Holdings opportunity was not included in Puration’s preliminary forecast and does stand to contribute to Puration potentially exceeding the forecast, management is not yet raising its forecast as this time.

North American Cannabis Holdings is a cannabis enterprise incubator operationally piloting various cannabis sector business opportunities and further cultivating those pilots that show promise.  To date, this approach has resulted in the AmeriCanna Cafe business, the Puration cannabis extraction business which has been spun-off into a separate public holding company, and the EVERx sports and fitness supplement business. To learn more about North American Cannabis Holdings, visit the Company’s website – www.growusmj.com.

Puration Cannabis Extraction; $3 Million Forecast; $1 Million Contract To Date

Puration utilizes a highly refined cannabis extraction process to deliver consistent and high-quality cannabis extracts.  Puration recently announced an independent lab test certifying Puration CBD extract at 98% purity.  The Company’s business strategy is to develop collaboration agreements with food and beverage companies to co-market food and beverage products infused with Puration’s cannabis extracts.  Last week, Puration announced entering into a $1 million collaboration agreement to produce and co-market THC and CBD infused beverages.  The agreement is the first of three anticipated agreements with food and beverage companies to be announced in the coming weeks by Puration.
