LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) ("ETST" or "the Company"), a unique biotechnology company focused on nutraceuticals, bioceuticals and dietary supplements, today announced it has executed an exclusive distribution agreement with Cromogen Biotechnologies ("Cromogen") focusing on the purchase of raw hemp-based CBD (Cannabidiol) rich oil. Moreover, ETST has placed its first major purchase order of raw hemp-based CBD (Cannabidiol) rich oil from Cromogen.

Under the terms of the agreement, Cromogen has appointed ETST as its exclusive distributor to formulate, market, and sell its raw hemp-based CBD-rich oil to Public Companies trading on the OTC Markets. ETST may further formulate, market and sell CBD-rich hemp oil on a non- exclusive basis to Non-OTC Market.
ETST has already initiated the required payment in order to secure a $350,000 purchase order of raw hemp-based CBD-rich oil. CEO of ETST, Harvey Katz PhD, stated, "As an emerging nutritional and dietary supplement hemp wellness company, ETST is looking forward to working jointly with Cromogen to create, develop and manufacture innovative products designed to promote health and wellness benefits by utilizing CBD (Cannabidiol). By leveraging Cromogen, ETST looks to have a significant cost advantage in the CBD arena. Cromogen's ability to scale provides ETST with flexibility to innovate and create significant inroads in this high growth market. ETST sees this as a very high growth opportunity that enables the company to market the highest level of CBD infused quality products with food safety certification."
Michael Brubeck, CEO of Cromogen, stated, "Earth Science Tech has proven to our organization that they can develop unique revenue channels not previously available. This new approach to the cannabidiol supplement industry is of great value to both Cromogen and Earth Science Tech and has already generated excitement on both teams. We look forward to showing the market the true value of this partnership."
Hemp oil is a well-known dietary supplement and the naturally occurring CBD in hemp is providing overwhelming evidence of significant health and wellness benefits. CBD possesses no psychoactive properties and therefore is a ready for market hemp based ingredient. According to scientific and clinical studies, CBD has the potential to help a range of conditions, including epilepsy, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pain, alcoholism, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, and various neurological disorders (Source: National Center for Biotechnology Information http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). CBD has demonstrated neurogenic and neuroprotective effects and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and abroad.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently considers hemp based Cannabinoids, including CBD, to be "food based" and therefore legal. These new non-psychoactive CBD-rich hemp oil products that ETST will look to market and distribute are legal and available to consumers in all fifty states and in more than forty countries. CBD (Cannabidiol), a naturally-occurring constituent of the industrial hemp plant, promotes and supports the nutritional health of aging bodies.

ABOUT: Cromogen Biotechnology applies a decade of research and development in plant science and phytocannabinoid studies to the manufacturing of cannabidiol-rich hemp foods and ingredients. The technology currently in place allows for the processing of 5 metric tons of hemp fiber per day, which can isolate trace amounts of phytocannabinoids as low as 300 parts per million. Common quality control concerns in the phytocannabinoid industry have been mitigated by Cromogen's R&D team through leveraging pharmaceutical processes and technology for hemp food and oil production.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
