Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 16, 2020) – Sweet Earth Holdings Corp. (CSE: SE) (FSE: 1KZ1) (OTC PINK: SEHCF) (“Sweet Earth“) pleased to announce that it has developed a proprietary online shopping portal for discerning pet owners. The portal, www.sweetearthpets.com focuses on CBD infused pet treats, provides valuable information on CBD usage for pet owners, and features seven of its popular dog treats.

Each product in our line is comprised of high-quality ingredients, which are further enriched with CBD. The pet treats only use natural organic ingredients and are void of chemicals often found in the standard brands. Similar to all Sweet Earth products, production begins with proprietary seeds planted on its Applegate Valley, Oregon farm. Sweet Earth Hemp CBD is non-GMO and contains no pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. All of Sweet Earths’ organic dog treats are fortified with Vitamin E as a natural preservative.

The seven dog treats sold on Sweet Earth’s pet treat portal are:

  • Beef & Cheddar Potato CBD
  • Apple Carrot Oat CBD 
  • Antioxidant Blueberry Flax CBD
  • Pumpkin Flax CBD
  • Sweet Potato Cranberry CBD
  • Peanut Butter Crunch CBD
  • Turkey & Sweet Potato CBD 

The Company is also in the final stages of developing cat treats and will provide an update when completed.

On September 23, 2020, the Company announce that it has signed a Definitive Supply Agreement with Thoughtful Brands Inc. (“Thoughtful Brands“) to supply dog treats under Thoughtful Brands’ Nature’s Exclusive brand.

According to Dogs Naturally[1], research shows that CDB dog treats are effective dog supplements for:

  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Anxiety
  • Digestive issues
  • Neurological disorders (such as seizures and epilepsy)
  • Blood disorders

Recently, Today’s Veterinary Business, wrote that the U.S. pet treat market reached US$6.7 billion in 2019, with CBD, the largest growth component[2] within the pet treat sector. The journal’s research also provides insight into key trends in a sector that has continued to grow at an average 3% CAGR.

  • Online sales of pet snacks have rapidly grown from 0% to 13%. A catalyst of eCommerce’s rapid market expansion is attributed to the platform’s ability to educate consumers on products prior to purchase.
  • Dog owners are increasingly focused on quality snacks that are produced locally, as highlighted by the decrease in sales of import treats. Made in the USA[3] has become a key factor in consumer purchasing.
  • 11% of dog owners have purchased dog supplements or treats containing CBD or hemp; however, as highlighted in Figure 1, the segment is far outpacing the overall growth of the pet snack and supplement sector.

Brightfield Group[4]  estimates the US CDB pet market will increase from less than US$100 million in 2018 to approximately US$1.8 billion in 2023.

The 104% CAGR highlights a product with rapid expansion and penetration into the growing pet snack sector.

Today’s Veterinary Business[5], a leading publisher on animal health, states that U.S. pet treat market reached US$6.7 billion in 2019. Within the pet treat sector, CDB products proved to maintain the highest growth rate[6]. In addition, online sales of pet snacks have also rapidly grown from 0% to 13%.

Sweet Earth also maintains a portfolio of products that includes facial and body care, men’s, spa, hemp, and muscle products that are sold on its website, https://sweetearthskincare.com.

PURA 1-for-1 Shareholder Dividend of PAOG Shares on Track

Newsfile

Published

on

Dallas, Texas–(Newsfile Corp. – October 30, 2020) – PAO Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: PAOG) and Puration, Inc. (OTC: Pink: PURA) today released an update on the process underway for PAOG to issue PAOG shares to PURA shareholders in a dividend distribution.

PAOG acquired a cannabis cultivation operation from PURA earlier this year in a transaction that includes issuing PAOG shares to PURA shareholders. The target distribution ratio calls for PURA shareholders receiving one share of PAOG for every one share of PURA owned.

PAOG has executed two acquisitions in recent months and managed to ramp up and organize acquired cannabis pharmaceutical research assets as necessary to execute a contract prerequisite to developing its acquired cannabis pharmaceutical research assets into an FDA approved drug. PAOG admits the dividend distribution process has lagged behind the acquisition and pharmaceutical development contract efforts. Last week, after completing the pharmaceutical development contract, PAOG management and PURA management committed to rapidly completing the dividend issuance.

Since initiating the joint rapid dividend completion effort, PAOG has filed to redomicile the company to Wyoming and increase the authorized number of shares in order to have the necessary inventory to execute the dividend distribution. PAOG has also engaged the services of the company’s transfer agent to manage the dividend distribution of PAOG stock to PURA shareholders. Once the move to Wyoming is complete, PAOG will file with the necessary financial regulatory authority to finalize the dividend details. PAOG anticipates a definitive dividend distribution announcement will be forthcoming within the next two weeks.

PAOG is excited to make PURA shareholders also PAOG shareholders.

The developing PAOG and PURA partnership includes PAOG participating in PURA’s new hemp lifestyle brand strategy, called Farmersville Brands and headquartered on a 72-acre property currently under contract for acquisition by PURA. In conjunction with PAOG’s newly acquired cultivation business, PAOG plans to build a pharmaceutical grade, indoor hemp cultivation operation and lab on PURA’s Farmersville property.

Look for more information coming soon from both PURA and PAOG.

“This is also the story of how my wife and I entered a forbidden world of drug users, and found it to be enchanted. MDMA opened up our lives to new friends, fun, and freedom. It’s also helped us navigate the aging process as we transitioned from middle age into our sixties and seventies.” – Charley Wininger

Wininger’s writing and personal narrative shows how MDMA can be a tool for healing and connection. This is why this particular psychedelic compound is being studied to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with Phase 3, peer-reviewed trials taking place at research sites in the U.S., Canada, and Israel. (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, 2020). At the current pace, MDMA will be a prescription medication in the U.S. by 2023.

In a recent Forbes article, Charley referred to MDMA as “super glue for relationships“. He and his wife are open to giving candid interviews about how MDMA helps to strengthen their connection.“It can help you connect with yourself, with your loved ones and with the world at large, [which] is especially important now when we live in a time of isolation and fear.” – Charley Wininger (Forbes)
