- MCTC Holdings Inc.’s work to develop cannabis-based infusion technologies has resulted in a compound that is a legitimate replacement for alcohol beverages
- The alcohol replacement technology is revolutionary because while based on hemp, levels are so low the hemp extracts utilized register on testing equipment as undetectable
- The company’s latest IP will form the basis of an ongoing series of products that will make up the company’s Hemp You Can Feel™ brand and may also be licensed as a white label product for other companies
Cannabis infusion technology is a new frontier in the fast-expanding industry derived from society’s newfound interest in the once-outlawed and sometimes still-illicit leafy green plant’s possible pain-relieving properties and other potential health applications. Infusion technology allows key chemical components to be extracted from the plant and mixed into food and beverage products as beneficial ingredients. Innovative infusion technology developer MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC) is building a unique intellectual property portfolio of hemp extract and cannabinoid infusion technologies, thus far filing four patents within this area of the marketplace.
MCTC recently announced a new class of hemp infusion technology designed to replace alcohol in many beverages, to be marketed under its Hemp You Can Feel™ brand.
“While the technology is based on hemp extracts, levels are many magnitudes lower than are typically seen in the marketplace,” CEO Arman Tabatabaei stated in a November 25 news release (http://ibn.fm/TaXGJ). “In fact, certified laboratory testing utilizing High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) certified undetectable levels of hemp extracts and cannabinoids. Simply put, we believe this is a revolutionary technology for the marketplace and a legitimate replacement for alcohol in many beverages.”
One of MCTC’s primary purposes since its reorganization in June has been to develop cannabis-based polymeric solid nanoparticles and nanofibers that can be added into consumer products and used topically on the skin. Nanotechnology has been used in the food and medicine industries for some time to turn extremely small substances such as polymers into delivery mechanisms – postal carriers, in effect – that posit beneficial compounds into a consumer’s bloodstream on an express delivery basis, bypassing the snail mail route of the digestive system.
The company has developed an innovative, edible, dissolvable film, a water-soluble form of vitamin E, a unique 3D-printed cannabinoid delivery system for beverages, and a broad-property means of delivering nanoparticles and nanofibers as its pending patents, in partnership with its research wing.
MCTC adds, however, that the minuscule technology used for infusion purposes in this newest patent application are not based on its nanoparticle research.
“One of the biggest technological challenges was stabilizing the formulation into a substrate. We were fortunate that our researchers were able to work with a major food ingredient manufacturer that provided the exact expertise and associated non-GMO technologies allowing us to complete the last piece of the research puzzle,” Tabatabaei stated. “This development was most certainly an interdisciplinary success based on extensive collaboration between our researchers and others in the food sciences industry.”
The newest addition to the intellectual property portfolio will be followed by a series of IP that are ultra-clean, non-GMO and 100 percent natural in their makeup to be used in a host of beverage and food formulations for “unparalleled relaxation” while allowing the consumer to avoid the negative health effects of alcohol consumption.
MCTC will use the technology for its unfolding Hemp You Can Feel™ product brand but will also license the technology and white label-produce products at its Los Angeles production facility, “as appropriate.”
Fortune Business Insights analysts forecast the cannabis-infused beverage substrate of the cannabis industry will see a valuation of $2.05 billion by 2026, marking an increased CAGR of 37.13 percent from its 2018 level of $173.76 million (http://ibn.fm/SQBED). A recent Arcview Research report predicts the overall cannabis edibles market, including candies, chocolates and pills, could exceed $4.1 billion in Canada and the United States alone by 2022 (http://ibn.fm/pSqxW).
