VPOR Discusses Positive Effect Of U.S. Government Reclassifying CBD Enhanced Products From Schedule 1 to Schedule 3; Pending International Distribution Deals

MIAMI, October 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Vapor Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: VPOR), ("Company" or "Vapor Group"), today

released a Management Update discussing the positive effect of the U.S. Government's reclassifying CBD enhanced products from Schedule 1 to Schedule 3 and discusses pending international distribution deals.

DEA Clarifies Cannabinoids Legality 

Earlier this year, the Drug Enforcement Agency released an internal directive regarding the presence of cannabinoids in products and materials made from the Cannabis plant that clarified the position that cannabinoids are in fact not illegal of themselves and that it depends upon the legal source of the product those cannabinoids are in which determines if that product falls in or outside of the Controlled Substances Act. The directive states: "Products and materials that are made from the cannabis plant and which fall outside the CSA definition of marijuana are not controlled under the CSA. Such products may accordingly be sold and otherwise distributed throughout the United States without restriction under the CSA or its implementing regulations. The mere presence of cannabinoids is not itself dispositive as to whether a substance is within the scope of the CSA."

"Accordingly, any product that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection determines to be made from the cannabis plant but which falls outside the CSA definition of marijuana may be imported into the United States without restriction under the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act. The same considerations apply to exports of such products from the United States, provided further that it is lawful to import such products under the laws of the country of destination."

This change in status bodes well for the Company that has recently, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Royal CBD, Inc., launched a website at http://www.royal-cbd.com with an extensive line of over 30 high quality CBD oil products, including vapes, oils, creams, edibles and a specialized line for pets. All the products contain CBD derived from U.S.-sourced hemp and many are offered in a range of CBD oil concentrations to meet varying consumer needs and tastes.

Plus, since the directive allows for both exports and imports, the Company is in the process of expanding sales into Canada where the Company's already speaking with numerous distributors to handle the Company's products.

In that same vein, the Company has also engaged with a cutting-edge e-commerce marketing firm located in Israel, that is capable of vastly expanding Royal CBD's sales footprint multi-nationally.

Yaniv Nahon President of the Company, said, "Since the DEA directive was released, we have taken steps to expand our marketing and sales of our products both nationally and internationally and will continue to provide updates as to our continued progress in this process. We firmly believe that these international associations will significantly increase the Company's revenues."
