Vancouver, BC, February 7, 2020 – Hollister Biosciences Inc. (CSE: HOLL, FRANKFURT: HOB) (the “Company” or “Hollister”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent (the “LOI”) to complete a Joint Venture Agreement (the “Joint Venture” or the “Agreement”) with Tactical Relief, a Veteran-founded hemp-based CBD oil brand. Upon completion of the Agreement, Hollister and Tactical Relief will collaborate on the development and marketing of cannabis tinctures throughout the California market.
Branded under Tactical Relief, the first cannabis tincture to be manufactured will feature a 20:1 ratio of THC to CBD, recognized for its medicinal properties in treating PTSD. True to the manufacturing mission of Hollister, the 20:1 tincture is crafted in small, artisanal batches for optimal quality and made from premium California-grown cannabis.
Under the terms of the Agreement, Tactical Relief will contribute artwork, logos and package design for a series of cannabis tinctures. On an ongoing basis, Tactical Relief will be financially responsible for all design and marketing. Hollister will be responsible for all aspects of production and procurement of underlying materials. All production of cannabis products will take place under Hollister’s supervision and licenses, and Hollister will be responsible for all costs associated with production and shipping. Tactical Relief and Hollister will further explore the development and marketing of additional cannabis-based tinctures, as well as expanding into out-of-state markets over coming years.
Tactical Relief’s new tincture(s) will be distributed exclusively by Hollister’s distribution partner, Indus Holdings Inc. (CSE: INDS) and is anticipated to be in dispensaries throughout California by March 01, 2020. An estimated 5% net profits of all sales will be donated to charity. Revenue generated on the tincture product line will be shared 60:40 between Hollister and Tactical Relief.
“Tactical Relief is a patriotic brand with a powerful message,” said Adam Smith, a Green Beret veteran, and Co-Founder of the Tactical Relief brand and US representative at Allied. “We launched this product to change the ways in which veterans and first-responders suffering from PTSD can choose to treat themselves, and with the Hollister Biosciences strategic alliance, we will be able to provide even more alternative treatments to those suffering. Part of the Tactical Relief mission is to use as many holistic treatment methods that have been shown to assist with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). This partnership with Hollister Biosciences will help move this mission forward.”
“It’s always been our vision to share the wellness benefits of the cannabis plant with as many people as we possibly can,” said Carl Saling, Founder, CEO and Director of Hollister Biosciences Inc. “We take great pride in providing only the highest quality products and innovation, and we are excited to be teaming up with TACTICAL RELIEF™ to reach new audiences and help out those who have sacrificed so much for us all.”
