Maricann Launches First Cannabidiol (CBD) Formulation Utilizing Patented Drug Delivery Technology in Germany
TORONTO, Aug. 13, 2018 – Maricann Group Inc. (CSE:MARI)(FRANKFURT: 75M)(OTCQB:MRRCF)(“Maricann” or the “Company) is excited to announce the official launch of MariPlant, the Company’s European nutraceutical line of business. MariPlant products will be available for sale in Germany through www.mariplant.de beginning on August 20, 2018, with strategic expansion planned throughout the European Union. Maricann’s first product launch is a soft gel formulation loaded with 25mg of CBD that utilizes the multi-patented VESIsorb® delivery system to ensure optimum absorption and bioavailability.
“Maricann is pleased to bring a superior CBD product to the German marketplace. This development symbolizes a significant move to strengthen our global leadership position as we introduce the first of many patented formulations that utilize VESIsorb,” Stated Ben Ward, CEO.
Maricann’s product launch represents many first-to-market milestones in the German cannabis industry, including the first:
- VESIsorb® formulation specifically adapted for cannabinoids;
- Standardized CBD product with measured and proven stability data; and
- Formulation with a strategic CBD:BCP (beta-caryophyllene) ratio of 4:1
In 2017, through a commercialization agreement with SourceOne Global Partners, Maricann acquired the supply rights to VESIsorb® for use with cannabis for human consumption in Canada, Germany, and other territories.
Multiple clinical studies have demonstrated the absorption and bioavailability benefits of VESIsorb®, a science-backed drug delivery technology with a robust portfolio of international patents. VESIsorb® has now been successfully adapted to optimize the performance of cannabis formulations in the human body. Since 2007, close to 200 million consumers in all six continents have safely and effectively used a natural product formulated with VESIsorb®.
According to Jesse Lopez, CEO and founder of SourceOne Global Partners, Maricann’s commitment to building an immediate infrastructure for German market leadership has pioneered a new standard for cannabis products in Europe. “Maricann has all of the critical elements to champion the VESIsorb® drug delivery system in the emerging global cannabis industry. With a focus on innovation and clinical research, they also have the financial strength to build awareness and educate consumers on these superior product applications,” Lopez said.
