Healthier Choices Management Corp Announces October Launch of its Next Generation Q-Cup Concentrates Device

HOLLYWOOD, FL, Sept. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Healthier Choices Management Corp. (OTC:HCMC) today announced the October launch of the Q-Unit, a U.S. Patented device made specifically for vaping concentrates. The Q-Unit, which boasts a mechanism that prevents the concentrates from coming in direct contact with the heating element, allows consumers to vape uncut pure extract from a pure quartz cup, with the convenience of an "on-the-go" device.

Unlike THC oil pens, which have come under public scrutiny as a result of recent severe lung illnesses and deaths, the Q-Unit is specifically designed to allow the consumer to vape pure extract, without the need for any cutting agents. Vitamin E acetate, a cutting agent which is generally accepted as benign in the forms of pill ingestion and topical application, is suspected of being causally related to the recent illnesses and deaths. 

Medical experts are saying that when used as a cutting agent, Vitamin E acetate vaporizes and is inhaled into the lungs along with the THC. However, when this substance cools, it turns into a grease-like substance, which is what may be causing the severe damage to the users' lungs.

"While there is much speculation right now as to the cause of the recent tragic illnesses and deaths linked to vaping THC, a major focus has been the addition of Vitamin E acetate to THC oils as a cutting agent/preservative. Concentrates rarely contain such cutting agents, which could make vaping concentrates the better alternative, at least in the short term," said Jeff Holman, CEO of HCMC.

Mr. Holman continued, "While we agree that the long-term effects of vaping in general need to be studied, HCMC remains committed to inventing and making vaping products as safe as they can be. Our U.S. Patented Q-Coil, which is not yet on the market, provides a potential solution for the ongoing concern of heavy metal toxins being ingested during the vaping process. We are redoubling our efforts to incorporate that patented technology into devices as quickly as possible."

Mr. Holman concluded, "In an effort to bring this potentially safer Q-Coil technology to the masses more quickly, in both e-cigarette and THC pods, we are also considering licensing this technology to a company, or companies, that already have significant market share in the spaces."

The new Q-Unit device also provides vastly greater efficiency, which cuts down on waste and allows the consumer to maximize the use of their expensive concentrates.

The new Q-Unit device is anticipated to be available in our company owned stores, dispensaries in select states, and online at www.theqcup.com by late October.

The Company markets the Q-Cup technology under the vape segment; this patented technology is based on a small, quartz cup called the Q-Cup, which a customer partially fills with either cannabis or CBD concentrate (approximately 50mg) purchased from a third party. The Q-Cup is then inserted into the Q-Cup Tank or Globe, that heats the cup from the outside without coming in direct contact with the solid concentrate. This Q-Cup technology provides significantly more efficiency and an "on the go" solution for consumers who prefer to vape concentrates either medicinally or recreationally.
