Agritek Holdings, Inc. Announces Expansion Plans For Additional 900 Acres In Pueblo, Colorado For CBD Research Cultivation Farm And New Infused Products Agreement

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/14/17 -- Agritek Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AGTK) www.AgritekHoldings.com, a fully integrated, active real estate investor for the cannabis sector and consultant for multiple cannabis brands today announced that the Company has agreed and entered into negotiations to purchase the surrounding nine-hundred (900) acres of its' existing 80 acre Hemp planned research site in Pueblo, Colorado.

Currently, Agritek Holdings owns eighty (80) acres with water and mineral rights for its planned Hemp research project for production of CBD infused products. The Company has now been given the first right and accepted the offer to purchase the surrounding nine-hundred (900) acres making it one of the largest operating Hemp research projects seeking approval by the state.

Through the almost 1,000 acre operation, Agritek Holdings will seek to become the largest tissue culture and genetics propagator of cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabis genetics in the US. The Company's primary focus will be in creating and patenting genetic strains of true medical marijuana and hemp-based CBDs. Using tissue culture, combined with its patented hydroponic pod technology, the Company can create identical, pathogen-free plantlets that can be used to create highly standardized hemp-based CBDs that are THC free in content. The first beta pod is unit already in place on the property.

The Company's Industrial Hemp license partner will enable the Agritek funded operation to cultivate, handle, transport, process, and distribute unlimited quantities of hemp through its 1,000-acre hemp research farm in Pueblo. Through the Pueblo operation, the company expects to harvest at least 350,000 pounds of dry flower each year for extraction into oil at its research and development facilities once completing the license and build out process. Once the oils are extracted, they will include cannabinoids like THCV for obesity/diabetes, CBG for sleep aid, and the more widely known CBD.

According to the Hemp Business Journal, the hemp industry generated $688 million in sales last year, representing a 22% compound annual growth rate. The industry organization believes that the hemp industry will reach $1.8 billion by 2020, driven primarily by the rise of hemp-based, or cannabidiol (CBD) products. These products could eventually make a dent in the $17.7 billion market for opioids, especially given emerging research and political pressure. While there are many different opportunities in the space, the market still remains quite fragmented with few companies that have reached a commercial model for consistent production.

"The addition of 900 acres for our research hemp grow to our existing 80 acres in Pueblo, Colorado once complete, will put Agritek Holdings in a category of a major manufacturer and provider of CBD products for multiple jurisdictions. We have already signed agreements to white label product under our brand for tinctures, soft gels, sublingual strips now available as well as additional products including pain creams and beverages. With our existing land holdings, we have additionally entered into binding agreements to provide pharma grade CBD isolate and land contracts to some of the largest providers in our industry. We at Agritek Holdings look forward to continuing to expanding our reach within the sector and creating shareholder value as we move into 2018", stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings.
