May 8, 2014 (Newswire.com) - BOSTON -- Verde Media Group Inc. (OTC: VMGI) and its Biotech Division ("VMBD") announce they have entered into negotiations for an overseas contract and ongoing joint venture in Asia to produce Cannabidiol oils "CBD" using select strains of Cannabis. The contract will be a joint venture with Phoenix Energy "PXE" that will co-finance 50% of the project cost. Using proprietary technologies developed by VMBD, highly concentrated CBD oil will be extracted and prepared for importation and distribution to the wholesale market.
CBD is a non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid that can be blended in food products for realizing medical benefits such as chronic pain treatments, cancer pains and neuro-protection for those afflicted by multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. The joint venture would use these selected strains highly concentrated in CBD and is expected to produce $5M revenues per annum.
