Tauriga Sciences Inc. Secures GS1 Barcodes to Support the Upcoming Commercial Launch of its Cannabis/CBD Infused Chewing Gum Product Line
New York, NY, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: TAUG) (“Tauriga” or the “Company”), engaged in building its business 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 secured GS1 Barcodes (“barcodes”) to support the upcoming commercial launch of its Cannabis/CBD infused chewing gum product line (“CBD Gum”). These barcodes will be integrated into the designs of both the individual CBD Gum packs (“individual packs”) as well as the retail display boxes (each contains 10 individual packs). The barcodes obtained thus far are exclusive to the Mint Flavor CBD Gum product, which will comprise the entirety of the Company’s initial production run.
GS1 Barcodes are symbols that can be scanned electronically using laser or camera-based systems. They are used to encode information such as product numbers, serial numbers and batch numbers. Barcodes play a key role in supply chains, enabling parties like retailers, manufacturers, transport providers and hospitals to automatically identify and track products as they move through the supply chain. GS1 manages several types of barcodes. Each is designed for use in a different situation.
AN IMPORTANT COMMITMENT:
The Company wishes to confirm to its shareholders, that at all times, it will remain in compliance with both U.S. Federal and individual State rules and regulations & laws that govern this sector. At the same time, the Company will be constantly monitoring the legal landscape which may experience material change(s), at any point in the future.
Studies have shown that a chewing gum product may provide a superior delivery method for distributing its key active ingredients (such as CBD), in comparison to other oral dosage forms, such as: pills, capsules, beverages, and gummies. As an individual chews gum, the CBD is released from the gum quickly and is absorbed by the Oral Mucosa, rather than the Digestive System. Bypassing the Digestive Tract allows the CBD to maintain its inherent bioavailability, and it also means that the CBD gets absorbed by the body substantially faster than other forms of Oral Ingestion. Studies have also shown that CBD that is swallowed as capsules, beverages, gummies, or edibles delivers less than 10% of the CBD shown on each respective label. With CBD Infused Chewing Gum, an individual can get relief for aches and pains in rapid time, and at a dose that is potentially strong enough to make a noticeable difference, and delivered cost effectively without wasting the majority of the CBD consumed.
