Terra Tech Expands Offering of Pre-Filled Cannabis Oil Cartridges
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) ("Terra Tech" or the "Company"), a vertically-integrated, cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced it has expanded its offering of the IVXX Vape Product line with the launch of the "Z92" cartridges, the second line of cannabis oil cartridges. This follows the launch of the Company's original Z35 cannabis oil cartridge line in April 2016.
Terra Tech's pre-filled cartridges are offered in a variety of cannabis strains which are easy-to-use and are conveniently designed for vaporizers as well. IVXX Z92 cartridges have a Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content level between 75 to 85 percent compared with the 60 to 68 percent of the Z35s. Made from local, sustainably grown cannabis that has been cleanly extracted using supercritical CO2, the oil is lab-formulated for consistency, and lab-tested for purity and potency. Through its low heat refinement technique and a unique filtering method, the Company maintains the natural terpene profile of each strain. There is no reintroduction of terpenes or flavor enhancers at any time in the process, as is true with all IVXX products.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, commented, "We successfully launched our first line of pre-filled cartridges in April 2016 which is currently being sold through our retail stores and Callow Distribution. We are seeing significant demand as we ramp up production to grow market share and cater to a wider client base. This new line of 500mg cartridges contains higher-potency cannabis oil and is designed for use with our IVXX Vape product line. We continue to develop a whole suite of different cartridge types to appeal to different preferences in the market."
David Weidenbach, CEO of Presley Holdings, the parent company of Callow Distribution commented, "I've really enjoyed working with Derek and the entire Terra Tech team throughout the development process. The significant demand for vape cartridges has been well established in the California market as consumers are more educated than ever. With this type of market demand comes the equivalent in consumer options. Therefore, if Callow was going to support an IVXX vape line, we needed to do it with the intention of doing it better. This is accomplished by providing consumers consistent, high quality oil with no additives and superior delivery hardware we can stand by. This is coupled with highly competitive prices conducive to the maturity of the California vape market. Callow does business with people, not products. Terra Tech's team is comprised of good people and I look forward to what the future holds."
Terra Tech assembles the pre-filled cartridges at its IVXX Extraction Lab, and distributes them via its Blüm retail locations in Nevada and California, and via Callow Distribution, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Presley Holdings. Callow Distribution, the exclusive distributor of Terra Tech's IVXX product line, is a wholesale distributor that specializes in the brand development and product placement of cannabis products throughout the state of CA.
