(the “Company” or “Nutritional High“) (CSE:EAT)(OTCQB:SPLIF)(FRANKFURT:2NU) is pleased to announce that is has entered into a Purchase Agreement to acquire property in northern California, where the Company intends to extract cannabis oil and manufacture cannabis infused products.

“After several months of searching, we are pleased to have found a suitable property to establish a state-of-the-art extraction and edibles manufacturing facility,” said Jim Frazier, CEO of Nutritional High. “California, as the largest cannabis market in the world with a well-developed and competitive market place, will be an exciting challenge that I know we will meet. California is home to a large population of sophisticated cannabis consumers and represents a tremendous opportunity to broaden the reach of our premium branded marijuana oils and infused products.  Many of our innovations, which we have introduced to Palo Verde in Colorado, were developed and perfected in California, and now we look forward to bringing our brands, approach, and expertise back to California consumers.”
