September 10, 2019 – Vancouver, BC: The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (FSE:YG3) is pleased to announce it has licensed its patent pending proprietary technology for extracting key chemical compounds from hemp to its wholly owned subsidiary Yield Botanicals to establish a CBD extraction business in the U.S.
Yield Botanicals is well positioned to capitalize on substantial growth in the CBD market. It’s licensed patent pending technology shows early promise of significantly increasing the yield of valuable chemical compounds per kilogram of hemp root input during the extraction process, as tested by an independent lab. Yield Botanicals intends to use the same technology as part of the CBD extraction process to increase the yield of CBD from hemp. It also intends to conduct research and development using the technology to create a water soluble CBD for beverages and to create a CBD nano-emulsion to enhance transdermal bioavailability of topical products. Yield Botanicals also intends to conduct further research regarding a non toxic plant based surfactant it has identified to enable creation of clean CBD products.
Yield Botanicals intends to do a capital raise to set up a CBD extraction facility in Oregon, U.S., where Yield Growth has existing partnerships and a distribution network. Yield Botanicals will supply Yield Growth’s umbrella of brands with high-quality full spectrum and terpene rich CBD distillate. Yield Botanicals also intends to supply other brands, including licensed brands obtaining white label manufacturing services from Yield Growth.
The new dedicated CBD extraction business will benefit Yield Growth, whose umbrella of product brands require a steady supply of quality CBD. Together the companies will create a robust CBD supply, product branding and distribution network.
According to the Brightfield Group, the legal U.S. CBD market is expected to grow from $618 million in 2018 to $23.7 billion by 2023. However, the current market is highly fragmented, indicating an opportunity for new brands. In 2019, 1% of companies had sales above $40 million or were sold in more than 1,000 stores, and 93% of companies had sales of less than $1 million or were sold in less than 100 stores.
