Naturally Splendid (TSXV:NSP) NSPDF, +1.51% is pleased to announce a Letter of Intent (LOI) has been executed with Ambarii Trade Corporation (“Ambarii”) for the sale and distribution of Ambarii’s proprietary sublingual full spectrum hemp CBD tablets (“Ambarii CBD Tablets”) in Japan and South Korea. Ambarii is a wholly owned joint venture subsidiary of Lexaria Bioscience Corp’s (“Lexaira”) (otcqb:LXRP) (cse:LXX) and Joint Venture partner Neutrisci International Inc. (“Neutrisci”) (NU) (NRXCF) (1N9.F).
Under the terms of the LOI, Ambarii will manufacture and supply Ambarii CBD Tablets to Naturally Splendid for exclusive distribution in Japan and South Korea. In addition to the revenue generated from product sales, Ambarii will also receive a royalty on all sales.
Ambarii CBD Tablets are quick dissolving and offer a metered dose of full spectrum hemp oil, combined with the powerful antioxidant properties of pterostilbene. The tablets will be flavor variant with zero-sugar. Ambarii CBD Tablets represent a market first and the only commercially ready tablet of its kind.
Neutrisci is a Canadian public corporation specializing in the marketing, development and distribution of proprietary nutraceuticals. They develop effective marketing and branding strategies for nutraceutical partners around the world. Established in 2009, NeutriSci has focused on the market development of several breakthrough nutraceutical products.
Lexaria’s CEO Chris Bunka says, “Ambarii is moving quickly to establish commercial production and distribution. Our Joint Venture partner Neutrisci International (NU) and Lexaria, working together, hope to establish distribution for Ambarii products in other global locations. We’re pleased to be working with Naturally Splendid in this new enterprise.”
NeutriSci’s President, Glen Rehman stated, “This agreement establishes the first product distribution deal for the newly formed Ambarii. Together with our joint venture partner, Lexaria Bioscience, we are very excited to have made such significant progress with Ambarii. This agreement represents a significant milestone in the cannabinoid industry as it represents the completion of the first ‘plant to blood stream’ product of its kind. We look forward to working with Naturally Splendid on this exciting new venture.”
Hemp oil containing CBD is legal in Japan, and with a population of over 127 million, it represents one of the largest markets in the world. South Korea is expected to open its market to CBD from Hemp Oil soon, and its population of 50 million makes this an attractive market as well. Naturally Splendid has been working since 2015 to open distribution channels in both Japan and South Korea and expects these markets to contribute to meaningful revenue growth in 2017 and beyond.
Naturally Splendid CEO Dave Eto states, ” This initial agreement represents our continued efforts to penetrate the global Cannabidiol (CBD) market. We are very pleased to work with Neutrisci, who is a global leader in innovation, production, and formulation of clinically proven nutraceuticals. Our relationship with Neutrisci compliments our own strategy of being the first, being the best and different. This exclusive license for Japan and S.Korea supports our objective to offer a complete line of CBD containing products and to demonstrate our innovative focus. Together with Lexaria, Neutrisci and Ambarri, we believe we can develop and market products that will give Naturally Splendid a competitive advantage in this market space. Our goal is to now complete a definitive agreement.”
Dave Eto adds, “Naturally Splendid is also investigating a HempOmega(TM) infused, CBD sublingual chewable tablet, which could lead to a wider array of new products. Combining the IP and expertise of the companies involved creates a most exciting synergistic and dynamic business opportunity and we would like to thank Lexaria, Neutrisci and Ambarii as we collaborate on this exciting venture.”
