BERKELEY, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:TAUG) ("Tauriga" or the "Company"), a diversified life sciences company with interests in the natural wellness sector and in developing a proprietary synthetic biology platform technology, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Honeywood LLC ("Honeywood") has successfully transitioned into its new Berkeley, California based headquarters and production facility. This new Honeywood headquarters complex includes: corporate offices for administrative activities, a substantially improved production facility, and laboratory space for research and development ("R & D") activities. Additionally Honeywood has moved its CO2 extraction machine into this new facility and is gearing up for another production run in the near future. In addition to its Doc Green's topical cannabis cream, which is already available in dispensaries in California, Honeywood has developed Vapura, a soon-to-be-launched medicinal cannabis vapor cartridge that attaches to an e-cigarette battery and produces an effective and flavorful cannabis vapor.
Since its inception, Honeywood has been responsible for overseeing the product development of Doc Green's Healing Collective, formulating and licensing its line of Doc Green's Therapeutic Healing Cream, a cannabis infused shea butter lotion, that delivers the healing power of cannabis through the skin without psychoactive side effects. Doc Green's itself is a California not for profit entity operating under California laws, regulations, and guidelines applicable to the State's medicinal cannabis industry. Doc Green's lotion was the first professionally packaged and widely distributed cannabis product on the California market, and has won much acclaim including a first ("1st") prize award at the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup ("Cannabis Cup") for Best Non-Edible Medically Infused Product.
Honeywood is a key component in Tauriga's natural wellness business. Honeywood is currently focused on increasing its capacity to produce and develop products, and is actively pursuing expansion opportunities in California as well as in other states where medical marijuana is legal. By completing the merger with Tauriga, Honeywood is confident that the quality of the management team and the access to working capital will enable both the acceleration of organic growth and expansion to new markets, resulting in new and greater revenues.
