VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integrated Cannabis Company, Inc. (CSE: ICAN, OTCQB: ICNAF) (“Integrated Cannabis”), is pleased to announce the completion of a Letter of Intent (LOI) to distribute X-SPRAYS™ products throughout the clinics and doctors’ offices of Empower Clinics Inc. (CSE: EPW; FRA: 8EC) (“Empower”), a leading owner and operator of medical cannabis and wellness clinics in the United States (US).
The companies have recently engaged with their marketing and distribution teams to streamline the logistics of rolling out new products in the Empower clinics. Integrated Cannabis will distribute all of its CBD-infused X-SPRAYS™ including; CBD, Sleep, Recover, Libido and Energy throughout the Empower ecosystem.
“We believe this milestone marks another significant move for distribution of X-SPRAYS™ in key markets across the United States. In addition, we believe this alliance will help increase awareness from credible sources about alternative treatments for those struggling with opioid addiction, pain, anxiety, sleep issues and people seeking overall well-being,” said Mr. John Knapp, CEO of Integrated Cannabis. The Company expects to sign a definitive agreement with Empower in the coming weeks.
“We are very excited about our partnership with X-SPRAYS as we believe it brings leading technology and treatment for the most common conditions our patients face. X-SPRAYS state of the art product formulations and unique metered dosage help consistently deliver a world class product,” said Mr. Craig Snyder, CEO of Empower.
As of August 31, Empower has more than 25,000 patients under care across 15 locations with medical cannabis treatments in Oregon, Washington and Illinois. The patient base in Oregon represents approximately one-third of the state’s total medical card issuance. In addition, Empower has an historical patient database of more than 120,000 in the two states.
On September 12, Empower announced the opening of its flagship Chicago clinic. In Illinois, the company seeks to expand its operations and achieve a leadership position as it executes on parallel national clinic and product strategies. There is currently an opioid epidemic in the United States and the company’s announced Chicago facility closely followed the endorsement by Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner of medical cannabis as a frontline treatment and alternative for patients with a new statewide measure he signed into law on Aug 28.
Empower is a leading owner and operator of medical cannabis and wellness clinics, as well as a developer of medical products in the US, focused on enabling individuals to improve and protect their health.
