TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nutritional High International Inc. (the “Company” or “Nutritional High”) (CSE:EAT) (OTCQB:SPLIF) (FRANKFURT:2NU) is pleased to announce that Weedmaps, the world’s first marijuana technology and media brand and the most comprehensive marijuana directory on the planet will be featuring the Company’s FLI brand as one of the top brands of cannabis oil vapes in the State of Colorado. Currently, FLI-branded products are being manufactured and distributed in Colorado by Palo Verde LLC (“Palo Verde”), the tenant at the Company’s Pueblo, Colorado facility. Palo Verde has been manufacturing FLI-branded vape cartridges, syringes and chocolates, and has recently launched “Dab” products, which contain 1,000 mg jars of cannabis oil distillate. FLI “Dab” products are targeted towards the cannabis concentrate “aficionado” who prefers to consume oil by “dabbing.”

Jim Frazier, CEO of the Company, commented: “We are very proud that the FLI-branded vape products manufactured by Palo Verde will be featured as one of the top 5 vape products in the vape and edibles categories for the State of Colorado less than 6 months after Palo Verde started utilizing our proprietary processes to extract and refine cannabis oil. And we, along with Palo Verde, are proud to be in collaboration with a premier marijuana company such as Weedmaps. The Weedmaps website and application enable marijuana users to easily find products by pinpointing the user’s location and providing the corresponding closest dispensaries carrying FLI-branded products.”

Mr. Frazer continued: “We intend to progressively introduce our FLI-branded products into California, Oregon, Washington, Canada and other jurisdictions as permitted by state law. We believe that our collaboration with Weedmaps will be a key ingredient to the brand’s inevitable expansion and success.”

Each FLI product line and SKU is featured on Weedmaps so users can easily view the variety of premium products associated with the brand. Being one of the top featured brands in the State of Colorado will help with FLI’s algorithm ranking so each branded product has a higher chance of being viewed and ultimately purchased.
