SANTA ANA, Calif., June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Kush Bottles, Inc. (OTCQB: KSHB), a dynamic sales platform that provides unique products and services for both businesses and consumers in the cannabis industry, announced today the opening of a new Product Development and Genomics Lab to produce innovative terpene formulations. The lab will be located in San Diego, California, an internationally renowned biotech hub.
The company has appointed Wayne Green as Director of Science & Innovation. In this role, Green will oversee development of terpene-based products, as well as direct TerpsOnTerps.com, Kush Bottles’ terpene knowledge base and online marketplace.
According to a market study released by Technavio, the global aroma chemicals market is expected to reach $4.968 billion by 2021. Terpenes hold the largest share of this global sector, accounting for 36.8% of the market.
Terpenes are produced naturally in plants and trees, and are used worldwide in a variety of products such as fragrances, flavors, and biofuels.
Green joins Kush Bottles with over 20-years experience in the biotechnology sector, where he focused on the development of natural products and genomic technologies with agricultural and pharmaceutical applications. Prior to joining Kush Bottles, Green co-founded Trinity Terpenes, where he led the creation and development of authentic terpene profiles. Prior to that, Green led a team of scientists at Yulex in a genomics breeding program. He also developed a natural biocide that utilized terpenes, and led field trials showcasing its potential as a replacement to synthetic pesticides.
“Wayne’s unique mix of skills and experience in genomics breeding and as an entrepreneur make him an excellent choice to lead Kush Bottles’ expansion into the terpene business,” Nicholas Kovacevich, Chief Executive Officer of Kush Bottles, said. “We look forward to his leadership role in developing and evaluating natural-chemical products that expand our product portfolio.”
