Cannabis Global Discusses its Expected 50%+ Cost Advantage in THC-V and Other Exotic Cannabinoids for Beverage and Food Products
LOS ANGELES, CA — June 03, 2020 — InvestorsHub NewsWire — Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC: MCTC) (“Cannabis Global” or the “Company”), a cannabinoid and hemp extract science-forward company developing infusion and delivery technologies, today provides information on its Project Varin, a nearly complete research program implemented to develop novel production technologies for rare cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabivarin (THC-V), which is not scheduled at the federal level.
The program has produced meaningful technology breakthroughs, which have resulted in several patent filings. Via these technological developments, the Company has been able to significantly reduce the cost of exotic cannabinoids on a per-serving basis resulting in an expected cost advantage of greater than 50%.
“We think we have rewritten the exotic cannabinoid cost equation via our Project Varin. The minor exotics represent a new cost challenge for the industry, and we believe we have developed a strong and defensible solution,” commented Arman Tabatabaei, CEO of Cannabis Global. “Acquiring THC and CBD from plants within the Cannabaceae family is relatively easy as these cannabinoids are produced by nature in abundance. It is a very different issue relative to THC-V, CBN, and other exotics. With our patent pending technologies, we have been able to rewrite the cost equation for minor cannabinoids, while at the same time moving well beyond the purity possible from legacy technologies. While we are already at a 50% cost advantage to the competing technologies, most of which are still theoretical and not yet available on the market, we believe further travel down our cost curve is possible as we move into high volume manufacturing this month.”
The Company’s production technology is based on the pure THC-V. Cannabis Global expects to establish leadership relative to quality and purity with zero heavy metals, solvent residues, plant impurities, and no chance of cannabinoid microbial and mold proliferation. Other manufacturing processes require mitigation of these issues, whereas, with the Company’s technology, these simply cannot be issues as there is no introduction of foreign substances anywhere during the manufacturing process. The Company is moving into high volume manufacturing for THC-V over the coming few weeks.
In addition to the utilization of pure cannabinoids produced by state-of-the-art techniques, the Company has completed, via its Project Varin, an ultra-efficient production technique utilizing pharmaceutical-grade production equipment that is just now coming to market. The combination of the use of the pure cannabinoids, when applied to this internally developed and now patent pending manufacturing processes, yields what the Company believes is the most efficient exotic cannabinoid manufacturing process in existence.
Product and technology developments were a result of the Company’s Project Varin, which was implemented last year to invent new manufacturing and infusion technologies for rare cannabinoids, such as THC-V. The Company plans to utilize the developed technologies in similar applications for other rare cannabinoids, with work on cannabinol (CBN) already underway.
THC-V is not scheduled at the federal level. The Company’s THC-V products contain zero tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), far below the acceptable federal level of 0.3%, and zero heavy metals, pesticide and herbicide residues, nitrates and other impurities that are contained in most cannabis and hemp products.
