ST. PETERSBURG, FL, April 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FutureWorld (OTCQB: FWDG), a U.S. Diversified Holding Company formed to capitalize on the burgeoning technology markets globally, announces today that HempTech is to acquire interest in Verecis Corporation to further develop CaNNaTRAK® product line for the legal medical marijuana and the industrial hemp markets. Verecis has been a pioneer in Enterprise Asset Management industry for the Fortune 500 for more than a decade. Seed to sale control and effective tracking has become a choke point in the growth of the legal medical marijuana industry. HempTech, together with Verecis, will mitigate and alleviate this considerable concern for current States and any future States allowing the creation of the legal medical marijuana industry. Compliance and governance will be the big drivers in adoption and growth of the medical marijuana industry nationwide and globally. Without a proper compliance and governance framework, legal medical marijuana may encounter considerable roadblocks for mass acceptance and adoption. The acquisition will provide substantial ownership and rights to the intellectual property required for development, sale and expansion of CaNNaTRAK nationally. The acquisition detail will be noted on the forthcoming 8K.
CaNNaTRAK, as an Enterprise Asset Management System, tracks governance Licensing, Seed Sourcing, cultivation and point of sales of medicinal marijuana. CaNNaTRAK will utilize the latest in RFID hardware and enterprise grade backend software to track Cannabis all throughout its lifecycle for governance, monitoring and profitability. A typical application of CaNNaTRAK will be as following;
1- Cultivation - CaNNaTRAK will tag all Cannabis stalks for security and inventory purposes using passive and active RFID or Bar Codes.
2- Harvesting - CaNNaTRAK will validate the data between cultivated and harvested cannabis and provides efficiency matrix in conjunction with HempTech's SmartSense technology.
3- Processing - CaNNaTRAK's dataset from cultivation to harvest will evaluate the processing results and its efficiency. CaNNaTRAK will also monitor the licensing consideration before shipment to the retail centers or dispensers.
4- Packaging and Point of Sale - CaNNaTRAK will assess and control the quantity of the merchandise, its estimated retail value, its inventory level and finally record associated medical cards with dispensed cannabis at the point of sale.
5- Compliance - CaNNaTRAK will maintain licensing compliance and audit readiness with State, Local and Federal mandatory requirements.
6- Integration - CaNNaTRAK will integrate its technology with CaNNaBoX to maintain tight compliance in the case of the medical permits for dispensing marijuana.
Due to the State law, legal governance, compliance and tax reasons, we believe CaNNaTRAK will be an invaluable tool for legal compliance and profitability from growers to dispensers of the legal medicinal marijuana.
We are in the process of sales and marketing procedures for CaNNaTRAK in Colorado, California and other States. We expect to be the de facto ERP tracking system in the State of Florida with the approval of the Medical Marijuana by the end of 2014.
