VAPE Holdings Files Patent Application for Next Generation Cannabis-Derived Products

CHATSWORTH, CA / ACCCESSWIRE / May 11, 2015 / VAPE Holdings, Inc. (VAPE) (the "Company" or "VAPE"), a holding company focused on providing healthy, efficient, and sustainable vaporization products and management, consulting, branding, real estate and compliant packaging solutions to lawfully operating participants in the legal cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that it has filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for new composition of matter and methods, which the Company has designated the "NG 100 Series Patents."

With this federal regulatory filing, VAPE Holdings takes the first steps toward establishing new plant-derived compositions, extraction methods and related technologies for next generation cannabis-derived products. VAPE Holdings is known for its patent pending innovations in specialized ceramics for vaporization products. The internally licensed HIVE Ceramics product line is widely regarded as the gold standard of ceramic vaporizers in the industry.

"VAPE Holdings is very pleased to announce our commitment to the technology for Next Generation cannabis-derived products," stated VAPE Holdings Chief Executive Officer Kyle Tracey. "Our NG 100 Series provisional patent application is the first of several patent positions that the Company expects to file in the general area of plant essential oil extraction, modification and analysis," added Mr. Tracey.

The commitment of VAPE Holdings to Next Generation Cannabis IP is driven by the Company's Chief Science Officer, Dr. Mark Scialdone, and his proven track record of chemistry-based innovation and combined 20 years of science-based product development for E. I. DuPont de Nemours and through his own consulting company.

"The NG Series of property rights is a direct outgrowth of the VAPE Holdings commitment to developing new, safe and effective products for patients and consumers," explained Dr. Scialdone. "It's a natural extension to look, as we have, to the fundamental chemistry that happens when cannabis oils and concentrates are thermally vaporized."

VAPE Holdings expects to follow a licensing and royalty model in order to early on monetize and make its innovations available for use in FDA Investigational New Drug studies and through other types of collaborations.
