PALM BEACH, Florida, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

As the legal

marijuana and cannabis industry continues to grow and mature, the expansive growth has produced a wide array of opportunities for companies to realize a booming benefit in new business, such as providers of product development & launches, technological
advanced growing services, cutting-edge lighting solutions and other aspects of grow operations to keep up with rapidly rising consumer demand. The cannabis/legal marijuana market continues to influence growth and opportunities for companies such as: AV1 Group, Inc. (OTC: AVOP), Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. (OTC: RMHB), MassRoots, Inc. (OTC: MSRT), mCig, Inc., (OTC: MCIG), Greengro Technologies, Inc. (OTC: GRNH)

AV1 Group, Inc. (OTC: AVOP), a publicly traded investment and holding company announced today that the Company, through a wholly owned subsidiary CannaLighting in partnership with Apollo Smart Lights a provider of intelligent LED lighting solutions, has finished beta testing its proprietary prototype LED system for cannabis in Denver, Colorado and is preparing for launch of sales and marketing.

Apollo, who will manufacture the lighting product for the Company, has also granted the Company an exclusive license to market Apollo's line of products for Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada and Mexico... all prime cannabis growth territories. Read this and more news for AVOP at

The new LED system addresses and solves a key problem common to all 'horticulture' growers... the timing from vegetative to bloom. The system enables this process to proceed as quickly as possible and increases cost effectiveness of the growth cycle.

The LED lighting sector is an intricate key to the indoor agricultural environments that these harvesting facilities represent, since the majority of these crops are grown indoors. U.S. retail cannabis sales will rise more than five-fold, from an estimated $2.2-$2.6 billion in 2014 to $7.4-8.2 billion in 2018, according to an article recently published by Marijuana Business Daily.
