PhytoSPHERE Systems, a CannaVest Corp. Subsidiary, Significantly Increased Hemp Oil Production for 2014
PhytoSPHERE Systems Increases Production by Over 1500% From 2013
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CannaVest Corp. (OTC:CANV), the
world's leading cannabis-based investment company spearheading the development
of cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp oils and other industry-related products and
services, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, PhytoSPHERE Systems, has
increased its industrial hemp oil production over 1500% for the 2014 season. The
company has also increased its production capabilities to concentrate these hemp
oils into high value CBD-rich hemp oils, from the rate of several kilograms per
batch production cycle in 2013 to over twenty tons per batch production cycle
"With this drastic increase in our production and our refining capabilities, we
will continue to be able to significantly decrease our production costs and
increase our operating margins," stated Michael Mona Jr., President and Chairman
of the Board for CannaVest Corp. "The market interest in CBD-rich hemp oils has
significantly increased over the past year, due in large part to the many
remarkable documentaries and publicity surrounding the positive benefits of
cannabis, specifically natural cannabidiol. We are at the forefront of hemp oil
production today, and as the legal markets continue to expand we are one of the
few companies actually able to capture and benefit from that increased demand."
Over the past year, the Company released its flagship CBD-rich hemp oil product,
Real Scientific Hemp Oil(TM) (RSHO(TM)), and developed a multi-award winning
prototype CBD extract called CBD Simple, which won the 2013 High Times Cannabis
Cup competition in Amsterdam for Highest CBD Concentrate. This international
judging event featured entries by the most prominent growers, breeders and
producers of cannabis and cannabis products worldwide. CBD Simple also won the
2013 Seattle High Times Cannabis Cup and 2013 Michigan Medical Marijuana
Conference "Green Cup" contests for Highest CBD Concentrate. In addition, the
Company launched a line of popular everyday CBD-rich hemp oil supplements,
Cibdex(TM), now available in drops or capsules-and the world's first natural
hair and body care line with CBD-rich hemp oil, Cibaderm(TM).
These products can be purchased at the following sites:

"We are very pleased with the performance of our products in these competitions
and look forward to a strong performance in 2014," continued Mona Jr.
