DC Brands SeeksTO Become a Financing and Service Provider to the
Colorado Marijuana Industy

 

Denver, April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DC Brands International, Inc.  (OTCQB: HRDN)  ("DC Brands" or the "Company") is excited to announce that it is changing its corporate focus to
become a financing and service provider to the growing Colorado Marijuana Industry.  DC Brands, through its newly formed and 80% owned subsidiary, DC Brands  Green Investments, LLC, intends toprovide accounting security, compliance, payroll processing and tax services toy licensed Colorado medical and recreational marijuana businesses.
 
Due to current banking restrictions many fully licensed Colorado marijuana growers and sellers are forced to business in only cash.  This creates many challenges in banking, paying employees, remitting taxes, etc.  The Company currently has a one million dollar commitment  from an existing financing partner and is in discussions with several others for additional offers to fund this new business opportunity.
 
Bob Armstrong, the CEO and CFO stated, "We believe that refocusing the company as a comprehensive service provider to this rapidly expanding local industry will provide the best opportunity to maximize our shareholder value and reduce the debt on or balance sheet.  He continued "We are also currently working closely with local Colorado Marijuana attorneys to ensure that our activities will not create any "ownership position" as a licensed grower or seller in the eyes of the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division of the Department of Revenue - the regulatory body of the state's marijuana industry."
 
The Company anticipates closing on a contract with its first client within the next 30 days.

On his part, CFO and acting CEO of DC Brands International, Bob Armstrong, stated, “This is a very exciting next step in building our relationship with Village Tea.”

http://www.worldteanews.com/news/village-tea-mamaki-blending-together

Village Tea Company will introduce an assortment of Mamaki based products as the first product in its new line of exotic functional “teas” from around the world which will be launched early next year. Mamaki is an herbal plant that is native to the Big Island of Hawaii that has been used for centuries by native Hawaiians for various medicinal purposes.  Native Hawaiian’s have traditionally used Mamaki to lower high blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, relieve stress and fatigue, reduce stomach problems, mitigate liver and bladder problems and to relax tense muscles prior to childbirth.  Mamaki is also credited in helping to maintain balance for diabetes in some people and is used as an anti-depressant.

Because of the local legend of the reported health benefits of the plant,  Mamaki has garnered attention outside of the Hawaiian Islands. These reports  have led to several recent studies by various universities and institutions to study the plant to determine its composition and potential benefits. Studies have shown, that Mamaki contains high levels of three beneficial polyphenols and abundant concentrations of healthful miner

Studies have shown, that Mamaki contains high levels of three beneficial polyphenols and abundant concentrations of healthful minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc. These concentrations are higher than that of many other tea’s such as green teas and black teas which have been proven to have known antioxidant properties. Based on these studies and other variables, Mama-Kii has cultivated the plant for the purposes of developing and creating loose leaf tea beverages. They are the largest grower and producer of Mamaki in Hawaii.
