VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Juva Life Inc. (CSE: JUVA) (OTCQB: JUVAF) (FRANKFURT: 4VV) (“Juva Life,” “Juva” or the “Company”), a life science company with pharmaceutical research and development and consumer-facing operations in cannabis production and distribution, announced today the launch of the Company’s first in-house branded product, a concentrate line called “Secret Sauce,” as part of a strategic effort to diversify wholesale lines into branded products.
“Expanding upon our successful five-star delivery service and flower products, Juva’s first in-house branded product represents a strategic decision to expand into high-growth product categories like concentrates,” said Doug Chloupek, CEO and Founder of Juva. “Our customers trust the quality, safety and transparency of our products. The Secret Sauce concentrate line is what our customers are asking for, and we look forward to expanding the Juva product offerings across more regions in California through both Juva Delivery and our strong retail partnerships.”
The concentrate brand launches at an ideal time in the market, with concentrates representing the fastest-growing category for cannabis products, accounting for 26.6% of market share, according to a recent report by ArcView, in partnership with BDS Analytics. Secret Sauce will be available through distributors and through Juva Delivery, a division of vertically integrated Juva Life, Inc., which also offers contactless pre-payment options through Paytender, a secure, fee-free online payment service.
Each product begins with meticulously selected cultivars grown at the Company’s 30,000-square-foot Stockton, California, cannabis cultivation facility. Once harvested and cured, the material is then moved to a manufacturing partner for final processing and statewide distribution. Currently available at select cannabis retail outlets in the California region, Secret Sauce will launch at additional storefronts in the coming weeks.

Juva Life’s pharmaceutical research and life sciences division is working to identify the method of action behind cannabis’ anecdotal ability to control pain and inflammation. The Company recently identified non-cannabinoid compounds JUVA-019 and JUVA-041, on which the Company has filed patent applications and has conducted preclinical research showing that the compounds are effective as stand-alone compounds in inhibiting inflammation by modulating certain biomarkers in the body. JUVA-019 and JUVA-041, which the Company has nominated as drug candidates for further preclinical investigation, are currently advancing through phenotypic models of chronic diseases of aging.
The Company would also like to announce that on January 6, 2022, 3,175,000 stock options and 10,000,000 compensation warrants were canceled. On March 25, 2022, the Company granted 17,220,000 stock options exercisable at $0.32 per stock option for a period of 10 years to consultants, employees, and directors of the Company. The stock options have varying vesting terms.
