Northstar Announces Manufacturing And Distribution Deals Signed For First Medical Marijuana Product

NEW YORK: Northstar Global Business Services, Inc., Symbol (OTCPink: MDIN) today announced that it has executed an agreement with Kush Creams, one of the leading Medical marijuana growers and distributors based out of Washington state, to not only manufacture Northstar’s first medical marijuana product, Snorenz Medicated©, but also to distribute the product to marijuana dispensaries throughout the State.

The deal has Kush Creams starting a significant manufacturing run immediately, in order to have enough inventory for the initial orders. It is expected that approximately a hundred dispensaries will start out carrying Snorenz Medicated, and that number is expected to grow significantly as the product begins to capitalize on Snorenz’s existing brand awareness.

Once dispensaries that already carry various Kush Creams products see that Snorenz Medicated is available, it is fully expected that the penetration of the market will increase very quickly. Northstar maintains that its research has shown that many legal marijuana users are already taking some form of Marijuana at night in order to relax and sleep better. Adding THC (the chemical compound contained in marijuana that causes intoxication) to the popular Snorenz formula, not only delivers a good dose of THC, but also lubricates the throat, helping with the “dry mouth” often associated with marijuana, as well as the normal anti-snoring benefits that have made Snorenz Northstar’s biggest seller.

Ah Warner: Back To Cannabis Basics

WASHINGTON: It’s a chilly fall morning in Seattle, and so in need of warm sustenance I go ahead and order a large coffee and a bear claw and settled down in a corner table at Uptown Espresso to await the arrival of Ah Warner.

Founder and CEO of Cannabis Basics, Ah is at the center of the Women of Weed movement here in Seattle, and a part of the vibrant topicals scene in the Puget Sound that includes Gig Harbor-based Kush Creams, Sequim’s Sativa Valley, and Seattle’s Vita Verde.

Warner is no stranger to the sativa scene. She has been involved in one way or another with the Hemp and Cannabis scene since the nineties.  Way ahead of her time, it seems the world —and the marketplace – are now ready for a line of fertile hempseed and premium cannabis-infused botanical topical treatments (“please don’t call them lotions”).

Women of Weed: Morgan, Ah Warner, Giana Lampreda, Daniela Bernhard

Ah unpacks her bag and shows me the Cannabis Basics line , a wide selection of healing products that includes: Sole’s Desire Repair Cream, Satin Skin, XXXBody Rescue Balm, Naked Lip Butter, The Remedy Pain Stick, and introducing Ink 20/20 – a relief stick for recent tattoo recipients.

Winner of the Hemp Times 1999 Bioneer award for “Outstanding Achievement in Body Care,” Ah also is a Washington sales representative for Dixie Botanicals and Wicked Wick, and a member of the NORML Women’s Alliance.

And if that weren’t enough, Ah co-founded Women of Weed with her business partner, Shawn DeNae Eddy, six months ago. Their mission statement: “To Build a Safe Community for Like Minded Women to Support and Nurture Our Individual Goals.”

The WOW meeting I attended last week was packed wall-to-wall with professional business women from every cannabis category  —packaging, retail, products, legal, testing, media, medibles, real estate, networking and sharing tales from the front lines.  The Women of Weed are force to be reckoned.

You can catch Ah Warner next month, speaking at the 2nd Annual Marijuana Business Conference and Expo on the topic of Ancillary products in the burgeoning 502 marketplace.
