Marion, North Carolina–(Newsfile Corp. – March 25, 2020) – Greene Concepts Inc. (OTC Pink: INKW) is pleased to announce it has recently signed a purchase order agreement with the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians’ Pit Stop gas station and convenience store. This purchase order agreement serves as the first sales purchase order for Greene Concepts’ BE WATERTM bottled water brand.

In collaboration with Sunflower Consulting Group (SCG), Greene Concepts recently reached an agreement with the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians, out of Mountain Center, California, to offer its’ BE WATERTM within the soon-to-open Santa Rosa Pit Stop gas station and convenience store. The station, set to open late-April of 2020, will be located 1 ½ miles east of Bull Canyon Road on the south side of the highway 74. The convenient store offers shoppers a fresh experience along with modern amenities and room for future expansion. According to the National Association of Convenience Stores, an industry advocacy group, over the past decade convenience chains have increased sales inside their stores around 30%.

The convenient store will serve as a modern travel station with plenty of amenities to benefit the local community. The convenient store will also serve the numerous commuters passing along the Santa Rosa reservation on highway SR 1-74. According to the California Department of Transportation’s 2017 traffic volumes (see here), the area near SR I-74 and SR 371 receives an average daily traffic count of 3,450 vehicles with SR I-74 and SR 111 at Palm Desert reporting an average daily traffic count of 19,300 vehicles. Multiple visitors will have the opportunity to frequent the Santa Rosa Pit Stop and receive goods and services. According to a local newspaper (Idyllwild Town Crier) in its October 22, 2019 edition, a recent feasibility study reported positive outcomes for commuters to and from the desert area along with the surrounding community.

The new Santa Rosa Pit Stop gas station embodies one of the local area expansion projects which also includes a 28,000 square foot local park, a first of its kind, on the reservation. Sales of the BE WATERTM brand along with other convenient store items assists the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indian tribe with an additional revenue stream to allow the tribe to expand its assistance to tribal members to include infrastructure expenses, basic housing and educational needs for tribal members on and off the reservation.

The Santa Rosa Pit Stop manager Ray Suarez notes, “Ours is the first store in the country to carry the BE WATERTM brand. We are proud to ‘Be First’ in this operational venture and look forward to sharing a wonderful product with not only the citizens of the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians but also to all of the visitors who frequent our convenience store to enjoy a refreshing product that is both unique and of great quality.

A collective quote from the tribal board conveys, “We have deep roots in our environment and great respect for the forces of nature that surround us. Water is one of the world’s greatest forces and we are proud to see that Greene Concepts has not only turned this great force into an essence of purity but that they have offered a name to the product that enhances man’s inner soul, “BE WATERTM“. Be Generous, Be Kind, Be Strong, Be Courageous, Be Caring, Be Yourself….those traits described on the BE WATERTM label are a strong reminder to find that inner joy toward spiritual transformation. We are proud to take this next step with a company that cares so much about our way of life and intent on capturing a piece of our native spirit within its daily operations and strategic plans morally, ethically and operationally.”

Lenny Greene, CEO of Greene Concepts Inc. states, “We are extremely happy to announce that the first sales of our BE WATERTM brand is with the Santa Rosa Cahuilla Indian tribe. They embody the traits of our BE WATERTM product, Be Strong, Be Generous, Be Caring, Be Courageous. The tribal board leaders of the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians embody these traits through the work of successful alliances, a focus on sustainable housing and infrastructure for tribal members, economic development, charitable works, the support of its youth, tribal health, tribal longevity and tribal wellness.”

Mr. Greene continues, “The strength of the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians is second-to-none and an inspiration for us all. It is truly an honor to have our BE WATERTM brand associated within a community of such positive influence politically, economically and environmentally. I am particularly glad to see the community focused on environmental health to include the preservation of natural resources and the local support of Earth Day. My hope is to continue to expand the partnership between Greene Concepts and the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians in support of sustainable positive change, increased recognition of the wonderful people of the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians to include the tribe’s customs and traditions, and also the continued recognition and growth of our BE WATERTM brand across the southwest United States.”

About Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians

The Santa Rosa Indian Reservation is in Riverside County, between Palm Springs and Anza, and occupies 11,021 acres of land. The Reservation is composed of four non-contiguous parcels; the largest being in the area of Sew’ia, or New Santa Rosa (Vandeventer Flat) where residents of the Reservation reside. The three remaining parcels, which include Toro Peak where the Tribe operates a telecommunications relay station, are located east of the main parcel. Elevation ranges from 4,200′ elevation at Sew’ia (Cahuilla name for “New” Santa Rosa) to 8,700′ elevation at Toro Peak. Currently, there are 139 recognized Tribal Members (18 and over). Approximately 70 individuals live on the Reservation. The General Council (which consists of adult members 18 years of age and older) elects a Tribal Council for two-year terms. The Tribal Council consists of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and three Council members. The people of Sew’ia are one of eight Cahuilla Bands which include Cahuilla, Ramona, Los Coyotes, Torres-Martinez, Augustine, Cabazon, Agua Caliente, and Morongo. The Santa Rosa Reservation was established on February 2, 1907, under authority of the Act of 1891 as amended. The Act of April 17, 1937 authorized the Secretary of Interior to purchase 640 acres to be held in trust for the Tribe. All reservation land is tribally owned and un-allotted, though some of the land is under assignment and has been passed from generation to generation.

TransCanna Receives State-Wide Operating License

Now owns largest known fully licensed cannabis facilities in California

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 11, 2020) – TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: XETR) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lyfted Farms, Inc. (“Lyfted”), was successfully granted a Type 11 ‘Distributor’ license by the California Bureau of Cannabis Control for its 196,000 square foot Daly Avenue Facility.

This long-anticipated milestone marks the completion of all state and local licenses required for the Company to begin operations at its flagship cannabis processing facility in Modesto, California.

This state-wide license represents Lyfted’s most major milestone to date in meeting the distribution and production capabilities needed to meet the escalating demand for its products in the world’s largest cannabis market. The license was granted after three levels of approvals were achieved at the county and state level and will allow for the commencement of packaging, transport, wholesale, pre-roll assembly, labeling, testing, contract packaging (white-labeling), and of course distribution of cannabis products to all licensed retailers across the state.

“This is the most exciting development in our history and what everyone has been working towards,” says Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO. “Being granted a license at the state level is a long, costly, and complex process, and one that requires navigating and understanding a complex regulatory process. It’s a significant barrier to entry for most companies, so this marks a huge turning point for us. We are delighted to have achieved our biggest goal to date and excited to be able to better serve the demands of the California cannabis market.”

The Company is currently completing upgrades to the flagship Daly Facility. Commercial cannabis activities are expected to commence at Daly August 2020, via the deployment of a 16,000 square foot cannabis distribution center (Phase 1). To date, Lyfted has been able to process in excess of $1M USD/month in wholesale cannabis transactions out of a distribution space of 1,000 square feet from its Jerusalem Court facility. These upgrades will mean the Company now has 16,000 square feet of distribution space at its disposal as of August 2020.

“This exponential increase in capacity is incredibly exciting for investors,” says Blink, adding the Company has been focused on building out its wholesale and distribution business while awaiting its final license. “Having processed a million dollars’ worth of product out of a single one-thousand square foot facility, we are anticipating significant growth now that our 196,000 square foot operation is online.”

Lyfted anticipates hiring up to 250 full-time employees at the flagship site with a strong focus placed on social equity and a diverse workforce that is reflective of the communities it serves and operates in.
