Tauriga Sciences Inc. Signs MOU to Distribute and Sell Natural Wellness Products Throughout Asia
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (TAUG) or (“Tauriga” or the “Company”), a diversified life sciences company with interests in the natural wellness sector and in developing a proprietary synthetic biology platform technology, announced that it has signed a non-binding MOU with Japan-based iFlow, Ltd. (“iFlow”) to distribute and sell three new Tauriga-branded natural wellness products to the Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong regions (the “Territory”). iFlow is an innovative and entrepreneurial Asian marketing and distribution company with motivational products in health, lifestyle, education, business and finance. If a definitive agreement is reached, the partnership between the companies would enable Tauriga to reach Asian customers with an interest in natural healing. The intent of the parties is for the initial focus of the partnership to be on two different formulations of Tauriga’s proprietary TopiCanna topical cannabis cream and on Tauriga’s CannaCaviar brand of small soft gel supplements. In compliance with Japanese medical marijuana law, all three products would use oil that has been extracted from the stalk of the cannabis plant and that is higher in CBD (cannabidiol) and low in THC, hence providing wellness and healing properties without psychoactive effects. If the initial phase of the proposed partnership is successful in establishing the Tauriga natural wellness brand in the Territory, the two companies plan to extend the agreement to include additional Tauriga products, such as Tauriga’s new line of natural dietary supplements.
Tauriga’s Chairman & CEO Dr. Stella M. Sung commented, “iFlow has built an extensive network of consumers in Asia who are passionate about improving their quality of life in organic and natural ways. We believe that there is a strong and growing demand for Tauriga’s TopiCanna creams and CannaCaviar soft gel supplements. Our potential partnership with iFlow would allow us to quickly establish the Tauriga brand in Japan as we focus on creating and building recurrent revenue streams.”
In late September, Tauriga announced that it had restructured its Honeywood transaction into a License and Supply Agreement which provides Tauriga access to the Doc Green’s topical cannabis cream and future products. In addition, Tauriga Sciences owns unique formulations of cannabis cream it began developing while working with Honeywood, including Tauriga’s new TopiCanna line of topical cannabis creams for different healing properties. Tauriga has also launched Cannabis Complements, the Company’s own line of natural dietary supplements that address cannabis-related effects but that do not contain cannabis oil. Flagship products include IndiCalm, a relaxant and anxiolytic based on L-theanine; ClearNaze, a natural decongestant without stimulant or drowsiness effects; Satietiva, an amino acid-based appetite suppressant; and EndoCannabinoid Omega-3 Support (or MendCan), a highly pure, potent and palatable Omega 3 supplement.
Tauriga’s Chief Medical Officer Lawrence A. May, M.D. added, “Through the potential partnership with iFlow, we would be able to begin to provide effective natural health remedies on a global scale, promote wellness and start to build a profitable, sustainable patient- and consumer-centered business.”
