VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewLeaf Brands Inc.’s (CSE:NLB) (NLBIF) (FSE:0NF) (“NewLeaf Brands” or the “Company”) wholly owned subsidiary, We Are Kured, is pleased to announce that the company plans to launch the  Veteran Pen (“Veteran Pen”) as well as introduce a Veteran charity program.  The Veteran Pen, a mint flavored pen which will come in a camouflage color scheme and will be added to the expanding We Are Kured product offerings.

The Company will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Veteran Pen to select charities that directly benefit veterans all over the United States.

Chief Executive Officer of NewLeaf Brands, Josh Bartch, commented,  “As a company it is imperative that we pay close attention to our customers and identify the best way that not only our products can be of help but also on how we can help give back and play our part.  We have seen a drastic increase in the amount of veterans that our product lines have helped in a multitude of areas they struggle with derived from their loyal and honorable service, such as help with sleeping, PTSD and of course pain management.  Roughly twenty-two Veterans in the United States alone commit suicide every single day and to me this number is staggering.  Not only are we introducing a pen specifically tailored to the men and women that have served but also we look forward to taking a chunk of the proceeds and donating it to charities that directly help our veterans.”
