TEMPE, AZ - (NewMediaWire) - October 01, 2015 - American Green, Inc. (OTC PINK: ERBB) announced today that it has finalized the Joint Venture Agreement with Calyptic LLC of Grants Pass, Oregon and will begin offering high-quality cannabis brands, under license with American Green, through authorized channels in the State of Oregon.
The outdoor harvest in Oregon began this past Sunday under the glow of the blood moon followed by the full lunar eclipse with the moon also closer to earth than at any time this year. Add to that, the fact that it was the second full moon of the month, making for truly perfect conditions for an outdoor marijuana harvest. "We were inspired, " said Aaron Hathaway-Neel, Calyptic partner. "It was a memorable way to start off the harvest and we won't likely experience this again."
Today, October 1, 2015, is the first day that marijuana for recreational use is legal throughout the state of Oregon.
The harvested material will cure before being pre-rolled and packaged for dispensaries in Eugene and throughout Oregon. Trim from the plants will undergo the proprietary Calyptic extraction process resulting in a golden nectar for medical marijuana patients and adult recreational marijuana customers.
Pre-rolls and nectar will be sold under license and packaged bearing the American Green name. The major focus of American Green packaging is brand awareness and shelf life. Typically, product is sold unwrapped or in non-airtight containers. As a result, the product tends to "de-gas" quickly and lose quality and effectiveness.
"The pre-rolls will be branded 'FlowerSticks' and are the first products produced under license bearing American Green branding. Colorado will be next. Our goal is to become nationally recognized as a brand known for quality, consistency, and fresh product. The American Green product rollout has begun," stated Stephen Shearin, American Green president.
