An important and expanding segment of the legal cannabis industry is the CBD market. Forbes reported that according to Matt Karnes of Greenwave Advisors, the CBD market is expected to reach the $3 billion mark by 2021. Currently, 15 states that allow CBD only - this is in addition to the 28 states plus DC that have legalized medical cannabis. A report by Research and Markets explains that one of the major drivers for this market is Health benefits of CBD oil. Cannabis-based CBD products have a relatively high content of THC compared with hemp-derived CBD products. As a result, cannabis-based CBD products can be used only when they are prescribed by doctors for medical purposes., Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) just earlier today announced breaking news that, "the details of the stock dividends related to the upcoming spinoff of all hemp-related assets including its China-based wholly owned foreign enterprise, CBD Biotechnology Co. Ltd. ("CBD Biotech") and its wholly owned United States subsidiaries,, Inc. ("Chinese Hemp Oil") and Hemp Logic, Inc. ("Hemp Logic").

Last month, the Company's subsidiaries achieved combined sales of over $100,000.00 and are well positioned to continue to achieve substantial growth into 2018 and beyond. CIIX plans to spin off all of its hemp related assets including, but not limited to, CBD Biotech, Chinese Hemp Oil and Hemp Logic into a single private company (the "New Company") with the goal being to bring the New Company into the public market in 12 to 18 months that follow. The New Company will issue one share of stock in the New Company for every four shares of CIIX's common stock held by investors as of the date of the spinoff, May 31, 2018.

According to CIIX's CEO, Warren Wang, "We want to provide our shareholders the opportunity to take advantage of this dividend; therefore, we encourage holders of our preferred stock to convert into common prior to May 31, 2018."

CIIX will continue to oversee the progress of the New Company. CIIX's CEO, Mr. Wang, and its CFO, Paul Dickman will serve on the board of directors of the New Company. CIIX is also currently evaluating potential independent board members for the New Company and individuals to join the management team.

CIIX has enjoyed success in helping to support various startup companies through its advertising and public relation related support services. Many of those startup companies have gone on to achieve strong stock prices. We look forward to the Company's spin off continuing this track record of success. Chinese Hemp Oil, Hemp Logic and CBD Biotech represent the Company's only involvement in the hemp industry, with its hemp-based CBD products; therefore, spinning off these entities will completely remove the parent, CIIX, from its involvement in the hemp industry, leaving the New Company to capitalize on the continuously growing hemp industry and other complimentary ventures.

"This is a great time to spin off CIIX's CBD focused assets as we continue to explore new ways to expand its core financial services business, including its recent move into the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology industry," according to, Inc.'s CFO Paul Dickman."
