DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / November 3, 2016 / United Cannabis Corporation (CNAB) (the "Company" or "United Cannabis") today announced that it has signed a Memo Of Understanding "MOU" with A Puerto Rican Health Management Company, whereby United Cannabis will make available its proprietary Prana formulation, delivery methods, software and professional network, sufficient to launch a complete cannabis based product and support facility for the country of Puerto Rico.

United Cannabis' Chief Technology Officer, Tony Verzura, commented on the announcement, "We meet with a lot of different groups that show an interest in our products and services world-wide. We have been in this space for over four years, and we have learned from experience that it is imperative we choose the right partner.

I personally met with the group in California and I was immediately impressed with their vision for Prana."
