VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemesis International Inc. (CSE:CSI) (the "Company" or "Chemesis") is pleased to announce it has entered into and closed a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of Desert Zen, a state-compliant, recreational and medicinal cannabis manufacturing, distribution, and transportation company based in Cathedral City, California. This acquisition will allow Chemesis to increase its resources and significantly expand its foothold in the rapidly growing California market. 

Desert Zen's current facility is licensed under state and local laws to manufacture, package, distribute, and transport quality cannabis products for recreational and medicinal uses. Desert Zen has a large existing network throughout the State of California that currently serves farmers and dispensaries, as well as other manufacturers, distributors, and transporters.  As a fully compliant cannabis manufacturer, distributor, and transporter working with other fully compliant vendors, Desert Zen is able to track all products, monitor safety, and ensure that all seed-to-sale laws are followed throughout the entire supply chain. Desert Zen's catalogue of products includes a variety of cannabis products and will also include Chemesis' flagship brand of California Sap premium cannabis oils.

"Statewide compliance at each regulatory level in California requires substantial effort, and Chemesis is pleased to continue its growth as one of the few fully compliant first movers in the California market," said Chemesis CEO Edgar Montero.  "Chemesis now has greater flexibility in its operations and can serve its customers more fully and efficiently.  In addition, the acquisition of Desert Zen brings new product manufacturing, distribution, and transportation opportunities to Chemesis' considerable oil extraction capabilities."

"Desert Zen is an established cannabis manufacturer, distributor, and transporter that continually is expanding its operations and will allow the Company to further execute its growth strategy in the State of California," said Mr. Montero. "The Desert Zen management team has a wealth of experience and an established network of growers, manufacturers, and dispensaries. As Chemesis continues to grow, acquisitions such as this will ensure Chemesis is able to build consistent, long-term value for the Company."

Chemesis International Inc. is acquiring 100% interest in Desert Zen in exchange for US$500,000 of the Company's common stock at a deemed value of CDN$1.00 per share, subject to a 36-month phased leak-out restriction.
