FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Puget Technologies (OTCBB: PUGE) announced today its Cannabis BioTech subsidiary has executed a consulting agreement with Kenneth Morrow, a leading international medical marijuana consultant, to round out the company’s research and development team.
The California based Morrow is a prominent international cannabis authority with more than 30 years’ experience. A globally recognized expert on production and delivery techniques and practices, Morrow serves as a consultant for some of the world’s largest companies involved in the advancement of medical marijuana. He has appeared on both CNN and 60 Minutes to discuss industry developments.
Morrow is the founder and owner of Trichome Technologies, which is involved in pioneering and evolving the cannabinoid industry and researching terpenes in marijuana. Terpenes are aromatic plant compounds found to have numerous health benefits.
President and CEO of Puget Technologies Ron Leyland said, “We welcome Ken to our team and look forward to making great strides in our goal of developing and producing superior delivery options for patients who cannot or do not desire to smoke marijuana.” He added, “On par with the world’s best, Ken’s vast experience with cannabis projects across the globe will be a tremendous asset to Cannabis BioTech.”
Amid changing attitudes about marijuana, Cannabis Biotech is dedicated to developing medicinal cannabinoid delivery options using scientific research and methodologies. The investigations conducted at Cannabis BioTech are expected to add to the growing body of data demonstrating marijuana’s medicinal benefits.
According to a recent Pew Research report, for the first time in more than 40 years a majority of Americans favor legalization of marijuana use. Numerous countries, 20 U.S. states and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical marijuana.
Morrow said, “As new generations of freer-thinking voters replace the declining population of baby boomers, we are about to experience a huge shift in attitudes about the value of medical marijuana. Firsthand knowledge will demonstrate medical cannabinoid products are safer and more effective than many synthetic, toxic medications currently in use.”
