Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) has engaged the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia (UBC) to identify and quantify anti-inflammatory and other bioactive compounds in its hemp root oil derived by Yield Growth’s proprietary extraction methods.

Established in 1908, UBC is considered a top academic institution in Canada and internationally. According to US News and World Report, UBC ranks #2 in Canada and #6 worldwide for Plant and Animal Science.


Once Yield Growth has identified and analyzed the bioactive compounds in its hemp root oil, it plans to complete the development of a state-of-the-art, unique and proprietary extraction system at the property it plans to purchase in Chilliwack, B.C.  UBC will test for specific compounds that are known to have therapeutic benefits. According to publicly available research, hemp root oil can contain terpenes. These natural absorption promoters are considered the most effective category of compounds for this purpose. The research also indicates that there is a high bioavailability of hemp root oil that is due to the transdermal properties of terpenes and triterpenoids found in the root.

Hemp root oil is Yield Growth’s biggest discovery and innovation in what the Global Wellness Institute describes as a multi-trillion-dollar wellness industry. Yield Growth has researched ancient Ayurveda extraction methods and combined them with modern science to produce hemp root oil that preserves the health benefits of the plant. Yield Growth is commercializing over 50 products—which include hemp root oil derived from its proprietary extraction method—and is currently selling products through retail stores and online under the brand Urban Juve. Through ongoing work with UBC, Yield Growth will continue to develop unique products through its patent-pending extraction technology—and enhance the bioavailability of botanicals through the skin.
