Ovation Science Provides an Update on its Topical Cannabis Research and Development Efforts

Ovation Science Inc. ("Ovation" or the "Company"), a topical and transdermal cannabis product development company with a patented skin delivery technology and backed by over twenty years of research and development, announces that it has developed new high dose CBD (Cannabidiol) formulations for both its "health and wellness" and its "beauty" lines. Although Ovation also has highly effective formulations that contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), Ovation formulates its CBD-only product from US grown hemp which contain no THC and therefore has no psycho active effects.

"Ovation is a cannabis research and development company and although we have over twenty-five topical formulations already developed including THC, CBD and combinations of the two, we wanted to expand the dosage range of our CBD formulations. We are very pleased to have developed a CBD transdermal cream formulation with 1500mg of CBD per ounce (per 30ml) which would give a consumer a 3000mg jar of transdermal CBD cream," said Terry Howlett, CEO of Ovation Science. "Additionally we have also formulated our beauty line with 200mg per ounce (per 30ml) for the anti-aging day and night creams and 2000mg for our body lotion (4 ounce bottle)." He added, "We believe that high dose CBD topicals are the future, particularly as consumers keep experiencing the benefit of using topical CBD (and THC) creams and lotions. We believe there is a demand for high dose CBD topicals and transdermal creams and we are excited to explore these new opportunities further with potential licensees."

CBD is believed to have a range of positive health benefits and therefore its popularity continues to grow amongst consumers. According to a ResearchAndMarkets.com February 2021 report, CBD derived from hemp, is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.2% from 2021 to 2028 owing to increasing demand and rising awareness. There are different products formats that consumers can use however CBD topicals can be an easy, simple alternative for consumers trying CBD for the first time. There is no universal dosage of CBD that is published. Consumers should discuss options with their healthcare provider as every person is different and it can be dependent on current medications, body weight, and other factors. Statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration or Health Canada. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

AMNESIA Media Launches Highlyte, The First AI-driven Software Platform To Help Cannabis Brands With Social Media Compliance

Developed by regulatory compliance experts from the digital gaming industries, HIGHLYTE BY AMNESIA empowers cannabis brands to grow their social influence while eliminating the risk of thousands in penalties and license revocation

Completing a successful $980,000 round of financing, AMNESIA Media today announced the launch of its effortlessly compliant software client HIGHLYTE, the first platform to use artificial intelligence to ensure social media safety in the highly regulated legal cannabis industry. Buffeted by rules which can be unclear and changeable from state to state, legal cannabis companies are frequently targeted for infractions by social media sites and regulators who are activated by the plant's national status as an illegal substance. Highlyte by AMNESIA highlights a company's potentially non-compliant text, images, and video before each posting goes live, thus avoiding damaging account deactivations and so-called "shadowban" practices that can be financially disastrous.

The stakes are high. Estimated to gross some $31 billion in national sales for 2021, a 41% increase over 2020 sales according to analyst BDSA, cannabis was recently named the fifth most valuable agricultural crop in the United States by a report from industry leader Leafly.com. Even so, marketing avenues in legal states are narrow and social media remains the No. 1 way for brands to distinguish themselves. Losing access can be ruinous.


NEKTR Set to Become the World's First Pro-Medical Cannabis NFT Gaming Platform

With its upcoming play-to-earn Cannabis NFT game Legendary Leaf (February 2022 release), NEKTR's message to the world is that "cannabis has a medical use that can benefit all of us."

A minimum of 10% of the NFT game revenue will go towards establishing a medical cannabis reimbursement program for NEKTR Holders and expanding more local and low cost access of this medically underrated plant throughout the world.

Nearly four years after legalizing recreational marijuana, California has finally opened the path to make smokable hemp and CBD infused foods and beverages legal. Governor Gavin Newson signed the bill earlier this month to legalize the sale of consumables derived from hemp, creating a regulatory framework for the manufacture and sale of hemp products like smokable hemp, and hemp infused foods. This new bill is welcome for many companies in the hemp industry, which has remained unregulated since the federal legalization of hemp and CBD. While companies are still waiting for California lawmakers to establish a tax scheme for hemp and hemp derivatives, they are allowed to sell their products in other states.  ...more
