Exactus Applauds Executive Chairman, Jonathan Gilbert on Launch of Impact Biosciences Corp.

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactus Inc. (EXDI), a healthcare company pursuing opportunities in Hemp derived Cannabidiol (CBD) products, applauds its Executive Chairman of the Board, Jonathan Gilbert, on the launch of Impact Biosciences Corp.

Jonathan Gilbert, cannabis industry veteran, and founder and former CEO of SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE:SOL) (9SB.F) (SOLCF), whose wholly owned subsidiary, Scythian Biosciences Inc. (“SBI”), is seeking to list SBI as a new public company on the Canadian Stock Exchange (“CSE”) following a successful capital raise and spinout.

Philip Young, CEO of Exactus said, “We are proud to compliment Jonathan on his new venture and believe there are many great benefits from the use of cannabinoids. There is a large gap in the availability of controlled clinical trial data demonstrating the health benefits of this amazing plant, and we look forward to seeing the research that is produced by Jonathan’s efforts as well as data we intend to develop. Together we will raise the level of the clinical understanding and generate data meaningful to the use of CBD and all cannabinoids.”

SBI will be renamed “Impact Biosciences Corp” (“Impact”) and will continue to pursue a drug application for the prevention and treatment of concussions and traumatic brain injury with its proprietary Cannabinoid combination drug candidate with the University of Miami. Impact's mission is to become the first accepted drug regimen for concussive treatment. Impact has a collaboration with the University of Miami and its world-renowned neuroscientific team to conduct pre-clinical and clinical trials of its drug regimen.

Exactus is a new leader in the industrial hemp CBD industry with a mission to become the most trusted CBD brand. Exactus is setting the industry standards on transparency and quality with every product and will support clinical research that increases the education of consumers and healthcare providers to help patients suffering from various chronic illnesses.

Today the Exactus Inc. ticker symbol for its common stock will revert back to "EXDI" (EXDI). As a result of the Company's one-for-eight reverse stock split which became effective March 11, 2019, the Company's common stock had been trading on a post-split basis under the temporary trading symbol "EXDID" for 20 trading days.

Recently, Exactus announced that it placed its first million-dollar product order from its partner and largest shareholder Ceed2Med.  The availability of the tinctures, gel caps and topical lotions puts Exactus in a strong position to meet the consumer demand generated from Hemp Healthy®, the company’s direct to consumer platform.  Coinciding with the recently announced Exactus One World 200-acre Oregon farm acquisition, this ensures Exactus the quantity, quality controls and capabilities sufficient to ensure product availability through 2020.
