Nutritional High Issues Statement on Responsible Use and Commitment to Customer Health and Safety

TORONTO, Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nutritional High International Inc. ("Nutritional High" or the "Company") (CSE: EAT, OTCQB: SPLIF) and its flagship brand, FLÏ™ (“FLÏ”) would like to reiterate their commitment to the health and safety of its customers and support the safe use of cannabis products.

Our business philosophy is built on a foundational belief in consuming cannabis in the safest, most natural way possible and that you have every right to know what you are putting in your body. This driving philosophy ensures our products are made with minimal ingredients and the highest quality extracts. Customer health and safety is our top priority, and it is for this reason that we abstain from using any cutting agents or fillers in the manufacturing of FLÏ branded products. All FLÏ products are produced using pure, not cut, THC distillate, enhanced with propriety blends of all-natural plant-derived terpenes.

We understand the heightened concerns around the recent national news coverage surrounding fake, “black market” THC vaping devices being linked with health concerns. Following a recent investigation, The New York Department of Health found Vitamin E Acetate to be present in nearly all the vaping devices submitted for testing, which is believed to be the main contributing factor to the aforementioned health concerns. This is the result of unlicensed producers using cutting agents or fillers during the manufacturing process, as their practices are not governed by any regulations. To ensure the safe and responsible use of cannabis products we recommend always purchasing products and accessories from licensed retailers, in licensed compliant packaging.

If you have any concerns regarding the antigenicity of your FLÏ products contact us @ www.getfli.com. Provide your contact information, name of the dispensary where you purchased the product, product name, batch number, license number, and the production date. A FLÏ customer ambassador will follow-up within one business day.
