VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2014) - West Point Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WPO) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has added Andrew Davies, one of Europe's foremost experts in cannabinoid research as an Advisor to the Company.
Andrew Davies is the CEO of STI Pharmaceuticals Ltd., a leading cannabinoid research company based in London, England. STI Pharmaceuticals develops investigational products for a wide range of clinical research.
Andrew has over 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry and was instrumental in securing the first US IND for synthetic Cannabidiol (CBD) at Yale University. Andrew is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and holds a BEng from the University of Liverpool and an International Executive MBA from the University of Middlesex Business School, London.

Rav Mlait, president and CEO states: "We are seeing a significant ramp up in the use of Cannabidiol (CBD) for a wide range of health ailments. CBD is a non-psychoactive natural compound that has been shown in scientific and clinical studies to possess beneficial properties in the treatment of various conditions, including epilepsy, seizures, arthritis, diabetes, MS, PTSD, skin cancer and other neurological disorders. Recent headlines from several U.S. states, where advocates are demanding that laws be changed to allow easier access to CBD for the treatment of epileptic seizures, are capturing the attention of researchers, legislators and investors worldwide. Several U.S. states have recently introduced or passed bills to legalize the use of CBD in the treatment of epilepsy and other debilitating conditions. We see several potential business opportunities related to the research and development of CBD. Expert researchers like Andrew Davies have been on the front line of CBD development for many years."
At this time, there are no transactions in place, nor is there any assurance that a transaction will be concluded in the future.
We seek Safe Harbor.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
