Las Vegas, April 28, 2015 – Medican Enterprises Inc. (OTCBB:MDCN) (“Medican” or “the Company”), a merchant bank and bio-pharmaceutical company in the emerging global marijuana industry, has signed a letter of intent to acquire TWYNS, a company that provides branding services for enterprises in the Cannabidiol (CBD) business. The transaction is valued at approximately $1,000,000, all in stock. TWYNS should add approximately $400,000 to Medican’s revenue annually, and Medican is obligated to fund the operations of TWYNS at $12,000 per month.
Ken Williams, CEO of Medican Enterprises, stated, “The acquisition of TWYNS would be a strategic move by Medican, linking as it would the CBD market with the THC market while maintaining an arm’s length distance between them.”
“In both cases, branding is going to be important because we believe that the cannabis will be a cottage industry for the foreseeable future. Each jurisdiction where it is legal will be demanding fees and licenses. TWYNS will provide local growers, product manufacturers and distributors with a reliable ‘seal of approval’ that ensures quality and provides the consumer with a reliable benchmark. The model is Coca-Cola’s very successful bottling distributor arrangement.”
CBD is a cannabinoid devoid of the psychoactive effect made from the hemp plant, and not from marijuana.
TWYNS will offer trademarks and copyrights on commercial art work, association with the Egbert Ecclestein character, and the formula E = marijuana X cannabidiol squared, or E=mc2, in addition to the mark TWYNS. In exchange, it will receive royalties from CBD sales around the world starting with Hemp Health Inc. of Carlsbad, California, which imports CBD and produces a wide variety of health products from it including tinctures, capsules and vapes.
TWYNS will also provide packaging to CBD and THC dispensaries offering windows for both — the empty window in the copyrighted trademarked box can be filled with their own or the customer’s choice of THC. TWYNS will receive a fee to rent out the window space, and there is also the prospect of selling an empty bottle to fill the window with a THC of the customer’s choice.
TWYNS will also be free to license growers of cannabis anywhere and for the growers it will be an opportunity to gain recognition over and above the local promotion they would otherwise be limited to. Salves, lotions, edibles, anything related to the hemp or cannabis market can be E-MC2 approved, of course in exchange for a royalty or fee.
Jay Gordon of TWYNS said, “We are changing the landscape of the cannabis market. Even though CBD is known to have or is being studied as helpful for many ailments and conditions, it’s commonly been associated with marijuana since they are sister plants. While marijuana is gaining widespread acceptance it is subject to many restrictions. Conversely, CBD is not and can be sold everywhere. The best CBD is made from hemp, has little to no THC and is not subject to the myriad or restrictions that surround THC. Most of the states that have approved medical marijuana are doing so because of the therapeutic value of the CBD.”
