PALM BEACH, Florida, February 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Rising number of cannabis-based products and services display

the robust growth of the overall cannabis industry as investors and consumers alike rush to get involved in the budding market.  Cannabis and legal marijuana companies in focus today include: Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC:SGMD), Acology Inc. (OTC:ACOL), Vitality
Biopharma, Inc. (OTC:VBIO), FBEC Worldwide, Inc. (OTC:FBEC) and MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB:MSRT).

Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC:SGMD) today announces it has entered into a Letter of Intent to develop and market patent protected active packaging for the cannabis industry. The technology the Company intends to introduce will not only better preserve cannabis, including THC levels, via control of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, humidity and thermodynamic cooling, but will also significantly improve the safety of cannabis via the ability to emit food safe oxidizers and other treatments to mitigate mold, bacteria and other pathogens, including powdery mildew. Read this and more news for SGMD at

While the food industry has used modified atmosphere packaging for many years, recent advancements have given way to active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is a smart system that involves interaction between packaging components and the internal gas atmosphere within the package. The intellectual property on which Sugarmade will base its new products takes active packaging one step further by adding intelligence to the packaging, which will allow for active feedback to the consumer and tracking throughout the entire supply chain.

"We are very excited about this high-tech packaging and the already issued patents, which protect the intellectual property," commented Jimmy Chan, CEO.  "This packaging will enable us to help growers, dispensaries and consumers extend the shelf life of cannabis while making the product much safer for consumption. We plan to be the first company to offer active and intelligent packaging to the fast-growing cannabis industry. We believe this is especially important considering the developing standards in California and other jurisdictions that have recently approved recreational use.
