CINCINNATI, OH & LOS ANGELES, CA , April 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Callitas Health Inc. (CSE: LILY, OTCBB: MPHMF, FWB: T3F2), (the "Company" or “Callitas”) an integrated clinical-stage pharmaceutical development and OTC consumer goods marketing company, focused on developing innovative technologies for weight management, female health and wellness, and cannabis delivery technologies today announced that it has signed multiple letters of intent with two separate California-based companies for the licensing, development, and marketing/sales of the Company’s proprietary, patent and trademark-pending CannaMint strips for THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol) respectively.
The CannaMint technology provides a unique opportunity for cannabis (THC) and CBD processors, distributers, dispensaries, retailers and marketing companies looking to distance themselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Callitas has modified its initial licensing-only business model to partner with and supply local and regional Cannabis or CBD businesses after seeing demand for its products.
“Our patented and patent-pending stimulated vasodilation of lingual blood vessels for increased blood absorption and bioavailability of THC and CBD provides a unique foundation to advance the delivery of cannabis,” said James Thompson, Callitas CEO and co-inventor for this patent-pending technology. “Given the demand for some game-changing delivery mechanisms for CBD and THC, we have changed and optimized our business model to commercialize this product in partnership with local and regional businesses. We began our partnerships in California, the largest cannabis market in the United States, and we intend to seek out additional opportunities in other legal cannabis states and countries, as well as with CBD marketing companies nationwide.
The signed letters of intent for the CannaMint distribution in California anticipate mid-five to mid-six figures upfront and annual exclusive license fees, research and development cooperation and wholesale supply agreement(s) for the CannaMint strips to the local partners. R&D collaboration with each partner should lead to additional product development; additional IP will be filed as necessary. Additional information on the distribution agreements will be forthcoming.
Now that Callitas has tested and validated this business model and has the supply and infrastructure in place, they are actively looking for additional business partners in Cannabis legalized states and countries to partner with. Interested parties can contact email@example.com more information and partnership inquiries.
