Saint Petersburg, FL, July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --HempTech Corp. (OTC: HTCO), a provider of advanced Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) with sophisticated automation and analytical tools for the agricultural industry including legal medical cannabis, announces today that it is in the process of co-applying for Medical Marijuana Treatment Center (MMTC) license in the State of Florida with its sister companies, FutureLand Corp & CB Scientific.
Under the new regulations, enacted on November 8, 2016, Florida will accept new applications for Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MMTC) -- entities that acquire, cultivate, possess, process (including development of related products such as food, tinctures, aerosols, oils, or ointments), transfer, transport, sell, distribute, dispense, or administer marijuana, products containing marijuana, related supplies, or educational materials to qualifying patients and caregivers.
Under the new Florida State law, selling the marijuana flower is not permitted. The permitted medicines are in the form of derivatives such as food, tinctures, aerosols, oils, or ointments. This is where the expertise of CB Scientific in formulation and medical devices will shine the most alongside HempTech’s ability to help grow pure medicinal quality marijuana flowers.
The Company and its partners are in discussion with other seasoned operators in the legal marijuana States to begin the application process for the Medical Marijuana Treatment Center (MMTC) license in the State of Florida. The Company will partner immediately with its sister companies; FutureLand Corp and CB Scientific (for testing, extraction technology, formulation and delivery devices) and Biotica Pharmaceutical (for medical research and discovery). We expect to file and receive one of the available licenses in the coming month, if not, we will receive one with the expansion of the future licensing.
On the technology side, we have been working diligently in establishing relationship with current license holders in the State of Florida and Nevada bringing state-of-the-art grow technologies to their facilities for better yield and profitability. We are also planning on applying for grow licenses in the State of Oregon alongside what our sister company FutureLand already owns.
According to Forbes, Colorado and California may be ground zero for medical marijuana, but Florida could quickly catch up. A new report from New Frontier Data with market data provided by Arcview Market Research projects that Florida's market will grow to $1.6 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 140%. That would make it half the size of California's projected $2.6 billion market and top the projected $1.5 billion medical marijuana market for Colorado.
