NEW YORK, NY, Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: TAUG) (“Tauriga” or the “Company”), a revenue generating Company that operates through the development, distribution, and licensing of proprietary products as well as the evaluation of potential acquisition opportunities and equity investments, today announced that it has commenced the production of its proprietary Cannabigerol (“CBG”) isolate infused version of Tauri-Gum™ (“CBG Tauri-Gum™”). Each blister pack of this CBG Tauri-Gum™ will contain 8 tablets of chewing gum (10mg CBG per tablet). The flavor that has been selected for this CBG Tauri-Gum™ is Peach-Lemon (instead of Starfruit-Peach, as originally contemplated). The product will be Kosher Certified, Vegan Formulated, NON-GMO, Gluten-Free, and Allergen-Free. The MSRP has been set at $19.99 per Blister Pack / $199.99 per Retail Box.
Over the past two months, the Company has experienced strong levels of interest and indications of demand for this CBG infused version of Tauri-Gum™. The Company believes that this product is truly innovative and has the potential to enhance the value of its Tauri-Gum™ brand as well as drive revenue growth.
Cannabigerol (“CBG”) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that plays an important role in the biochemistry of the cannabis plant. CBG acts as a chemical precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. This conversion typically takes place 6-8 weeks in the flowering cycle. CBG is present only in trace amounts in most cannabis strains however, some hemp strains are specifically cultivated to generate higher yields of this cannabinoid.
CBG holds promise to be a key constituent in the overall medicinal benefits cannabis may provide. As cannabis research continues to rapidly evolve, CBG may emerge as one of the most therapeutically applicable and diverse cannabinoids to offer a wide range of possible remedies.
CBG is not scheduled by the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances. In the United States, it is not a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act as long as it is not produced from the controlled parts of the cannabis plant.
The Company expects that its “Peach-Lemon Flavor” CBG Infused version of Tauri-Gum™ will be available to the retail marketplace, during late March 2020.
