Sugarmade’s SmelPro Cannabis Transport System Featured in GreenCoast Hydroponics to Move Chain-Wide


City of Industry, Calif., March 21, 2017 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), announces its SmelPro™ cannabis transport system, which enables nearly smell-proof and discrete shipping of cannabis, is now being carried in select GreenCoast Hydroponics stores and is being featuring in the retailer’s Van Nuys store. Sugarmade is planning additional manufacturing runs of the product in order to supply the SmelPro product across all GreenCoast locations.

“We designed SmelPro™ and CannaShroud after months of field research with growers and dispensaries,” commented Jimmy Chan, CEO. “With SmelPro™ odors are almost eliminated and security for transport personnel greatly improved. It’s also a great looking product with built to last features and available initially in four popular colors and camouflage. We are currently seeking ways to improve manufacturing lead times in order to ensure an uninterrupted supply to GreenCoast and other retailers.”

“If you transport product, you need to check out SmelPro™. It provides something the industry has never seen before – Nearly odor-free transport of high value product,” commented Christian Gligori of GreenCoast. “We invite Los Angeles-based cannabis industry participants to GreenCoast’s Van Nuys, CA. location at 16705 Roscoe Blvd to view the advanced features of the SmelPro™ product. This is truly the best way we have seen to discretely transport cannabis.”

The SmelPro™ product is a significant improvement over currently available transport units used in the cannabis sector. The product utilizes the unique inner liner from the Company’s CannaShroud™ product, which is a combination of two plastic film types – High Density Polyethylene (PE) and Polyamide (PA). The PA portion of the liner has oxygen transmission rate of only 60 and a carbon dioxide rate of only 16 (cm3•m-2•d-1), compared to PE alone, which has rates of 600 and 220, respectively. Odor transmission is further reduced via active carbon filtration and a unique dual zip locking closure technology that prevents air from entering the package, while sealing in the odors. The SmelPro™ units are designed to be easy to carry or to be worn as a backpack.

Sugarmade Plans Leadership in Cannabis Active Packaging 


City of Industry, Calif., February 21, 2017 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), announces the completion of an agreement allowing the Company to introduce a new and revolutionary set of intelligent and active packaging systems for cannabis transport and storage. These products will allow cultivators and retailers to preserve THC levels, protect trichomes and save terpenes, while helping to mitigate pathogen levels, all of which are critical to the marketing and enjoyment of high-quality cannabis flowers.

“We plan to lead the market in advanced transport and storage for the fast growing cannabis industry,” commented Jimmy Chan, CEO. “Currently, cannabis flowers have a very short shelf life. The trichomes that protect the cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids are extremely sensitive to handling, atmosphere gases, humidity and light. Current methods of transport and storage are very unfriendly to trichome preservation, resulting in millions of dollars in lost profits for cultivators and retailers and reduced enjoyment by consumers. Our aim is to lead the market in fixing these problems for the fast growing cannabis marketplace.”

Through the use of patent protected technologies, Sugarmade will offer transport and storage containers that will actively create the ultimate protective environment within transport and storage containers, while also applying food safe oxidizers to mitigate pathogens to make cannabis safer. Sugarmade and its licensor partner, Cannabis Active Packaging, Inc., are currently in the applications development process and are actively developing prototypes for testing in the laboratory environment.

While the food industry has used modified atmosphere packaging for many years, recent advancements have given way to active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is a smart system that involves interaction between packaging components and the internal gas atmosphere within the package. The intellectual property on which Sugarmade will base its new products takes active packaging one step further by adding intelligence to the packaging, which will allow for active feedback to the consumer and tracking throughout the entire supply chain.

Sugarmade Readies Sriracha Seasoning Stix Launch – Receives Over 60,000 Sign Ups for Free Shipping 


City of Industry, Calif., February 15, 2017 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), today announces it is in the final stages of preparation for its product launch of Sriracha Seasoning Stix, under its licensing agreement with Irwindale, California-based Huy Fong Foods, Inc., the maker of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce.

Sriracha Seasoning Stixs are encapsulated Huy Fong Sriracha Sauce and other seasonings in the form of a “stick” which are inserted into meat, fish and poultry prior to cooking. Sriracha Seasoning Stixs are a hard solid at room temperature, but as heat is applied the sticks begin to liquefy allowing the meat fibers to act like a sponge absorbing all the delicious Sriracha flavors.

“We could not be more excited about our upcoming Sriracha Seasoning Stix launch, commented Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade. Thus far, interest is off the charts with our websites site already receiving more than 60,000 sign ups for free shipping and our offer for free samples exceeding capacity on the first day. We think the culinary world is in for a seriously delicious treat with Sriracha Seasonings Stix.”

This week, Sugarmade committed to a lease on a fully licensed commercial manufacturing facility in conjunction with its partner in this venture, Seasoning Stix International, LLC, with move in occurring over the next few days. State of the art manufacturing equipment has been acquired and the process of shipment and installation has begun.

“Mr. Chan continued, “For the past few months, we struggled with finalizing the unique, state of the art manufacturing process and locating a licensed production facility. We have now solved these issues, enabling us to accelerate our timetable. As a result, we expect to begin production of Sriracha Stix and other Seasoning Stix blends as soon as the installation process is complete.”

Sugarmade Sets Strategy for Cannabis Active Packaging – Designing Laboratory Testing Protocols 


City of Industry, Calif., February 10, 2017 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), having secured access to important patents for the active packaging of cannabis, today announces its product development strategy. The technology the Company intends to introduce will not only help to better preserve cannabis, including THC levels, via control of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, humidity and thermodynamic cooling, but will also significantly improve the safety of cannabis via the emission of food safe oxidizers to mitigate mold, bacteria and other pathogens, including powdery mildew.

“We believe these important patents will enable us to create an entirely new class of cannabis curing, transport and storage products,” commented, Jimmy Chan, CEO. “We plan to use this intellectual property to develop products that will enable cultivators and retailers to better preserve THC levels, while virtually eliminating any pathogens. Additionally, we will be able to apply the patents directly to the creation of home cannabis storage units that will prolong enjoyment for consumers. We are currently designing laboratory testing protocols for these products to further validate our product concepts.”

Sugarmade is currently working toward two initial products within the developing market for active packaging of cannabis. These include:

1) Dispensary/Home Storage Container. The Company’s top priority is an active packaging enabled cannabis storage container that will better preserve THC and terp levels, while treating cannabis for pathogens.

2) Grower Cure Box. Proper curing of cannabis is not an easy process. The Company plans to develop a curing box that will enable home and professional cultivators to better manage the curing process via control of C02, O2, and moisture levels, while ensuring that desirable aromas are preserved and that pathogens, especially molds and mildews, do not spoil the cannabis during the process.

While the food industry has used modified atmosphere packaging for many years, recent advancements have given way to active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is a smart system that involves interaction between packaging components and the internal gas atmosphere within the package.

Sugarmade to Utilize Patents to Create Cannabis Active Packaging Market 


City of Industry, Calif., February 1, 2017 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), today announces it has entered into a Letter of Intent to develop and market patent protected active packaging for the cannabis industry. The technology the Company intends to introduce will not only better preserve cannabis, including THC levels, via control of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, humidity and thermodynamic cooling, but will also significantly improve the safety of cannabis via the ability to emit food safe oxidizers and other treatments to mitigate mold, bacteria and other pathogens, including powdery mildew.

While the food industry has used modified atmosphere packaging for many years, recent advancements have given way to active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is a smart system that involves interaction between packaging components and the internal gas atmosphere within the package. The intellectual property on which Sugarmade will base its new products takes active packaging one step further by adding intelligence to the packaging, which will allow for active feedback to the consumer and tracking throughout the entire supply chain.

“We are very excited about this high-tech packaging and the already issued patents, which protect the intellectual property,” commented Jimmy Chan, CEO. “This packaging will enable us to help growers, dispensaries and consumers extend the shelf life of cannabis while making the product much safer for consumption. We plan to be the first company to offer active and intelligent packaging to the fast-growing cannabis industry. We believe this is especially important considering the developing standards in California and other jurisdictions that have recently approved recreational use.

While the drying and curing process, if done correctly, kills most of the microorganisms present in cannabis, certain types of bacteria and fungi are quite resistant to drying. Through this active packaging technology, oxygen levels can be lowered and carbon dioxide levels increased effectively putting everything in the container to “sleep”, thus slowing cellular respiration and extending shelf life.

The patented technologies also control humidity within the package, which is vital not only for retail and consumer storage, but also during the critically important curing process. Lastly, a significant portion of the intellectual property concerns the application of food safe oxidizers to treat and further retard the growth of many pathogens that may be present, such as powdery mildew, which is a growing problem within the cannabis market place.

Sugarmade Enters Multi-Billion Dollar Cannabis Industry after recently reporting Revenue Growth to $4.35 Million from $2.9 Million - See Below



Sugarmade Announces DabBox(R) – Non-Stick PTFE Cannabis Concentrate Packaging System


City of Industry, Calif., November 16, 2016 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), today announces DabBox(R) cannabis concentrate packaging with a unique PTFE concentrate containment system. DabBox is a unique point of sale display package that allows cannabis retailers to brand concentrates via custom printed packaging, while providing consumers high value packaging that eliminates waste, while significantly reducing odor.

DabBox utilizes virgin Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) due to its unique properties. Virtually nothing sticks to PTFE making it a nearly perfect packaging material for the very sticky cannabis concentrates that are fast gaining in popularity. Additionally, due to its high molecular weight, PFTE is non-reactive to cannabis, which virtually eliminates seepage of the expensive concentrate into the packaging materials. PTFE is also an excellent odor barrier.

“Almost ten years ago, we revolutionized custom printed packaging for the quick service food industry,” commented Jimmy Chan, CEO. This taught us how to produce custom printed materials at a fraction of the prices charged by the large packaging and printing companies, allowing us to control a significant portion of that market. We believe we can do the same for cannabis packaging. We plan to offer highly cost effective custom printed DabBox products to cannabis industry members at very reasonable prices in lots as low as 100 units. Not only are DabBox’s great concentrate containers, but these unique products can also be printed with product and/or brand logos to help marketers create brand equity to help them growing their businesses.”

DabBox will be available in half gram and full gram concentrate packaging sizes. The retail display version will be available with preprinted generic labeling or with custom printing based on customer provided logos or graphics. The premium DabBox product will also feature generic or custom printing, but will also include a unique silicon and virgin PTFE containment tray that will prevent loss of concentrate product, allowing the consumer to utilize all of the concentrate.

Sugarmade Announces CannaShroud Cannabis Transport System


City of Industry, Calif., November 3, 2016 - Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), today announces its CannaShroud™ cannabis transport packaging system specifically designed to allow for discrete and protected transportation of cannabis. The product is available immediately for vendor orders at the Company’s new website, www.CannaShroud.com, and will be stocked in local dispensaries and hydroponic supply stores and will be available to consumers online over the coming months.

“With more than a decade in the packaging business, CannaShroud is a product line we are very well equipped to deliver to the growing cannabis marketplace, “commented CEO Jimmy Chan. “We designed this product in conjunction with legal growers and dispensary personnel to solve their specific needs to improve transport security and discretion. We are already taking orders for the products.”

CannaShroud is a two-piece cannabis transport packaging system. The inner liner is polyethylene with a unique dual zip lock that seals air from entering the package and seals in the odors from contents, all while optimizing moisture preservation. The liner is specifically designed to prevent airflow, while not being so thick that it becomes difficult to load materials or to handle. The liners are sized to exactly fit the outside carton, which makes up the second section of the packaging. The cartons are discretely labeled with generic shipping labels or are blank as not to reveal the contents being shipped. CannaShroud will be available in four sizes to suit the specific shipping needs of the growing cannabis industry.

Mr. Chan continued, “Members of the cannabis industry are constantly worried about theft of product during transport. CannaShroud will allow for discretion of shipments and increased piece of mind for both the shipper and the owner of the products being shipped.”

About SeasoningStixs

In 2014, Sugarmade, Inc. made an investment in SeasoningStixs International, LLC. Seasoning Stixs owns a set of patents for a unique food science technology that allows for the seasoning of meats, fish and poultry from the inside out. Sugarmade, Inc. and SeasoningStixs International, LLC have recently entered into negotiations for Sugarmade to acquire the Company and its patents.

Professional chefs and home cooks know how extremely difficult it is impart flavors into meats, fish and poultry. Applying seasoning to the outside prior to cooking is of limited use and it also can produces bad flavors as a seasoning burns during the cooking process. Applying seasoning after cooking is also of limited use because very little of the flavors penetrate into the food. To compensate for these inadequacies, cooks have turned to marinades in order to impart flavor to not only to the outside of the food, but also in an attempt to flavor the inside of the meat.

However, any serious food scientists will tell you that marinades are of limited use and typically penetrate less than one quarter of an inch into the meat, fish or poultry. This inability to impart flavor directly into meat has been an issue for chefs, average cooks and backyard barbecue enthusiasts for generations. We can seasoning meat, fish and poultry from the inside out.By combining aspects of food science, high-tech manufacturing processes and healthy eating we have developed and patented a new process for seasoning meats, fish and poultry from the inside out. We call this revolutionary food science technology SeasoningStixs.

To understand how Seasoning Stixs work a little bit of food science education is required. One of the main issues that food scientist will explain to you relative to seasoning meat is that meat is mainly water. Water cannot be compressed, but must be displaced and until the water moves out of the way the seasoning cannot get into the meat fibers to flavor the dish. If water could be displaced from the meat fibers prior to cooking, seasoning would be easy, but of course this simply isn't possible. Fortunately, as the meat, fish or poultry is grilled, roasted, barbecued or otherwise heated, the water is displaced through evaporation. As this water displacement occurs the optimal time for seasoning the meet also occurs. This is where Seasoning Stixs are specifically designed to perform.

As heat is applied during the cooking process, the fibers of the meat begin to open up as water begins to evaporate. At approximately 100°F the Seasoning Stixs begins to change from a hard solid back into a powdered solid, which is taken up into the meat fibers in a similar manner to how water is absorbed by a sponge. Thus, the meat is seasoned from the inside out imparting fantastic flavors that had previously been impossible to obtain.

The process of imparting flavors from the inside out with SeasoningStixs works equally well you are roasting, brazing, grilling or barbecuing. Cooks who have begun to embrace sous vide methods should especially be interested in Seasoning Stixs as while sous vide does provide very precise temperature and timing control, the method imparts little to no flavors that are obtain via other cooking methods. Seasoning Stixs will allow the sous vide cook to impart desired flavors directly into the meat from the inside out.
