Furthermore, Project 1493 and Green Spirit RX will lead all marketing efforts in Puerto Rico to ensure cannabis consumers are educated on Dragonglass and its benefits.1
Dragonglass is made using a multi-patent pending technology that allows consumers to consume cannabis in a variety of different methods, flavors and colors. The dried activated THC powder or flake is all natural, and contains zero calories, sugar, fat, alcohols and is 100% vegan. The powder or flake is produced via a proprietary water-based cannabinoid infusion method, which allows users to expect onset within 7-15 minutes. Dragonglass will come in a variety of flavors that include mint, cinnamon, lemon-lime and even Cayenne for cooking. Dragonglass can be administered sublingually, ingested, micro dosed, and added to foods or drinks.2
“We are tremendously pleased with the agreement to bring Dragonglass to cannabis consumers in Puerto Rico,” said CEO of Chemesis, Edgar Montero. “Chemesis believes the patent-pending proprietary technology could revolutionize the industry in Puerto Rico with its fast onset and versatile methods of consumption. Natural Ventures will continue to increase its capabilities to serve the increasing demand of Puerto Rico’s cannabis industry.”
Under the agreement, Project 1493 will provide formulas, equipment, technology, and training to manufacture Dragonglass at Natural Ventures’ Puerto Rico facility. Under the agreement, Chemesis International and Project 1493 LLC. have a 50/50 net profit split.
