Minerco Finalizing R&D on The Herbal Collection(TM)

HOUSTON, May 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), parent company of Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., announced its new branded product line, The Herbal Collection™ ("THC"), is finalizing the research and development (R&D) stage. The THC brand will initially launch an assortment of ready to drink (RTD) teas enhanced with micellized Cannabidiol(CBD).

After more than one year of market research and multiple consultations with industry experts and the scientific community, Minerco is positioning The Herbal Collection brand to exploit the existing gaps in the category and further enhance THC with proven micellization technology.

Micelles are the atom sized stable aggregates of surfactant molecules, which form spontaneously in surfactant solutions. Put simply: Micellization is the scientific process of coating a particle in a surfactant solution to yield a higher potency at delivery.

The Herbal Collection has finalized the formulation and packaging of the initial test product. The coming product lineup will be led by an all-natural Green Tea with Honey drink, containing CBD in a micellized format. The market test will take place in Southern California through Minerco/Level 5's majority-owned distributor, Avanzar Sales and Distribution.

"After more than 16 months of research, development and consumer trials, we have finalized our enhanced, high tech, and unique product line, The Herbal Collection. We believe our RTD teas in a 20 oz. format, combined with healthful CBD and our delicious flavor profile, will set a new standard in the cannabis infused product category," said V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "The process of perfecting our THC brand took longer than we had initially planned due to the exacting science involved. But the lengthy process has ensured our scientific and strategic placement in the space. Additionally, it has allowed us to see what works and what doesn't work in this burgeoning category."

About CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound in cannabis that has shown to offer beneficial medical effects to the body without the psychoactive effects associated with THC. Studies have found CBD's to be an effective treatment for a large variety of ailments including minor pain, inflammation, social anxiety, stress and paranoia. Recently, California Pacific Medical Center found that CBD's turns off a gene that causes cancer cells to metastasize, or spread. A clinical trial in Germany found CBD to be as effective in treating schizophrenia as common antipsychotic medication with far fewer side effects.
