Cannabis Science Negotiates an Additional 200 Acres in California and 100 Acres in Nevada for Indoor and Outdoor Grow and Production Operations, Keys for Large-Scale Nationwide Growth Strategy

/ -- IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 19, 2016) - Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC PINK: CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabis-based medicines, today announced they are in the process of negotiating for another couple of major new drug development property deals, this time for two properties, a 200-acre California property and a 100-acre property in Nevada.

The deals would give the company a combined access to well over ten million sq. ft. for large-scale drug development grow and production operations. This added capacity will allow the company to bring products from concept to clinical trials much faster in addition to improving the company's output capabilities from a manufacturing standpoint.

The two property deals are located in California and Nevada respectively. The focus is to immediately grow to harvest for high levels of CBD extractions with low THC levels for applicable non-psychoactive delivery methodologies.

"I'd say our plans are moving right along nicely to expand our footprint across the country. We were very pleased by the excitement our investors shared with us as we closed the McDermitt Tribe deal in Nevada. These deals are on a whole new level, and we are moving fast," said Director, President, CEO & Co-Founder, Raymond C. Dabney. "With the demand we saw for partners and tenants in Nevada, it makes sense for us to continue seeking expansion in this avenue, as we feel it is one of the most effective ways we can create sustainable growth for our company, our partners, and our shareholders."
