ACACIA DIVERSIFIED HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCQB: ACCA) ANNOUNCES NEW CANNA-CURES OPERATIONS

Clearwater, Florida, Aug. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Acacia Diversified Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: ACCA) (the “Company”) today announced that its wholly-owned Canna-Cures Research & Development Center, Inc. subsidiary (Canna-Cures), has launched its first research and development center in Colorado with plans to open a second center in Florida in the upcoming months. In conjunction with that opening, Canna-Cures officially launched the Dahlia's Botanicals Endocannabinoid Nutraceuticals product line for in-store purchases and anticipates online availability in the near future. A portion of the proceeds from our Dahlia's Botanicals line will be awarded to the Canna Moms 501(c)(3) organization in support of its continuing public education and awareness campaign.

Canna-Cures will continue to play a major role in Acacia’s distillation and formulation of Cannabis extracts with a vision and focus on filing medical patents relating to the methodology and formulation of its products as the Company’s MariJ Pharmaceuticals subsidiary continues moving forward with its cannabis oil extraction and processing operations.

Rick Pertile, President and CEO of Acacia said: "The timing was right to open our centers and to provide support to the Canna Moms movement while simultaneously treating seizures in children with our high-quality hemp extract CBD tinctures. It has been a long wait for the right timing and location of our initial openings, but we believe this is it!”

The Company is currently engaged in an offering of its Common stock and convertible debentures to fund the forward expansion and growth of its two subsidiary operations.
