Share:

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 9, 2021 / Agritek Holdings, Inc. (OTC:AGTK), a fully-integrated, active real estate investor and provider of popular hemp brands including RehabRx™, today announced that the Company is expected to complete required filings of its 10K Annual Report and Quarterly reports for 2019 and 2020 this month after final review and approval by its auditing firm, M&K CPAS PLCC. The Company has retained both legal and strategic advisors within the last month to ensure that it returns to up-listed status of a fully reporting company as soon as possible.

"Upon returning and up-listing as a fully reporting company, I believe Agritek Holdings will have multiple opportunities to grow our existing businesses within the cannabis sector and potentially entertain larger acquisitions with the help of our newly appointed advisory counsel and additions to our Board of Directors to be announced shortly. With a new majority Democratic Congress and recent legislative proposals favorable to the cannabis sector in the pipeline, we are excited to continue our renewed business strategy with increased transparency and credibility," stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings. "It took a tremendous amount of time and all of our effort and attention to complete our delinquent filings due to multiple corporate actions both proposed and pending, the COVID pandemic and limited access to corporate operations, and we are now ready and able to fully focus on our return to up-listed status and new deals in front of us," continued Friedman.

The Company recently announced it has executed a joint venture agreement through its wholly owned subsidiary Full Spectrum Biosciences with Biomedican and its biosynthesis platform for the production of CBG/CBGA cannabis compounds. Biomedican, is a California-based biotech company designing patented low-cost methods of growing high-value compounds at scale with proprietary yeasts. The Company recently announced it has successfully biosynthesized rare cannabinoid CBG/CBGA and is setting up large-scale production of its pharmaceutical-grade CBG/CBGA compounds, containing zero toxins and contaminants, and is 75-90% less expensive than current wholesale prices. Full Spectrum Biosciences, through its agreement with Biomedican, will be ready to ship in bulk orders CBG/CBGA material starting in Q3 or Q4 2021.

CBG naturally occurs at such trace amounts during the standard agricultural or cultivation process that it remains challenging to manufacture economically with high purity levels. The Company will now seek to produce high-purity, pharmaceutical-grade, toxin- and contaminant-free, low-cost CBG/CBGA at scale via biosynthesis. This process results in products that are high-quality, consistent, and bioidentical to the molecules found in nature, which is crucial to large-scale distribution.

CBG/CBGA is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, with early research suggests it has a range of bioactive properties in the body, including anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant functions. The known health benefits of CBG/CBGA include fighting inflammation, pain and nausea, as well as working to slow the proliferation of cancer cells. There is a significant amount of evidence that CBG/CBGA will be as impactful to the health and wellness market as CBD has become around the world.

Neither Full Spectrum Biosciences or Biomedican touch the plant or produce THC or any other psychoactive ingredients at any point in time during its biosynthesis process. According to legal opinion, Biomedican is outside of federal regulations, since the current regulations center around touching the plant or producing THC. This will allow the company to distribute CBG/CBGA into a wide variety of channels, including nutraceuticals, food/beverage, personal care/lotions, and cosmetics.
