ST. PETERSBURG, FL, Aug. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. (OTC:GCAN) ("the Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired Green C Corporation through a Share Exchange Agreement dated July 31, 2018.

On July 31, 2018, the Company and Green C Corporation (Green C") closed on a Share Exchange Agreement whereby the Company issued to the holders of Green C's common stock a newly designated Preferred Stock titled Series A Convertible Preferred Stock ("Series A") for all of the issued, and outstanding shares of common stock of Green C. Upon closing, Green C became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Further details of the transaction can be found in the Company's 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov.

Green C is a Canadian company focused on innovative drug delivery systems for the Cannabis industry and has an exclusive worldwide license for PharMedica's "Eluting Transmucosal Patch Platform (ETP)" for non-invasive drug delivery for use in the Cannabis field. Some of the major advantages to the drug delivery platform include its rapid onset or slow, controlled and sustained release delivery capabilities. Green C has leveraged the ETP technology to manufacture a controlled and sustained release dose of Cannabinoids all on one oral patch.

As part of the transaction, the existing directors of GCAN will be stepping down and new directors and officers will be appointed. Mr. Aitan Zacharin, former founder and director of Fuse Science and an experienced public biotech executive, will be leading the Company as its CEO. Mr. Mark Radom will serve as the Company's chief legal officer, and corporate counsel. "I am honored and excited to be leading GCAN as a biotechnology innovator in the Cannabis space," said Mr. Zacharin. "We have licensed a technology that comes from decades of research and development of a novel delivery system, which improves drug bioavailability with improved efficacy." "I look forward to working with our team in an effort to bring this important innovation to the global Cannabis market, and address a real unmet need for millions of patients."

The Company is pleased to announce that its common stock is now quoted under the symbol "GCAN." The Company's market capitalization consists of 29,580,969 outstanding shares, and 10 million shares of authorized preferred stock as of July 31, 2018. Upon receipt of the date stamped designation of the newly formed Series A, the Company will issue 10,000,000 shares of the Series A to the former Green C shareholders.

The Company will be submitting its application in the coming weeks to OTC Markets to be uplisted to the OTCQB.

Outgoing director of GCAN, Wayne Anderson, had this to say about the transaction, "I wish to thank our loyal shareholders who have been exceptionally patient during the process of publicly listing GCAN. We have exhausted numerous hours completing our due diligence on the best path for GCAN in the Cannabis sector. We are confident that Green C's drug delivery technology licensed from Pharmedica coupled with their stellar management team will lead GCAN to be a leader and innovator in the rapidly growing Cannabis industry. I look forward to working with the new management team over the next month as Green C transitions into GCAN and takes the helm."
