Dallas, TX – March 1, 2017 - North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USOTC: USMJ) in conjunction with Puration, Inc. (USOTC: PURA), ML Capital Group, Inc. (USOTC: MLCG), City Blends Smoothie Cafe, and Nature Comfort Meds today announced the presentation of a Commendation for Leadership and Bravery to Jaren Suber in recognition of his dauntless six year battle against a rare pediatric brain cancer and his recent decision to lead the way for cancer patients everywhere by exploring the potential of cannabinol (CBD) treatment. The award was presented yesterday at USMJ’s prototype AmeriCanna Cafe in the Dallas Metroplex.
In conjunction with the commendation, Jaren, accompanied by his mother and father, will realize his lifelong dream of visiting the Hawaiian Islands. The trip is made possible by MLCG and its subsidiary, Platinum Tours of Maui. The Subers will embark on a luxury, one-week adventure, including airfare, 5-star accommodation and a “dream tour” across the island of Maui, created specifically for Jaren, culminating in a private helicopter excursion like no other.
Upon their return form Maui, Jaren is invited to visit a CBD cancer treatment trial for evaluation as a candidate for treatment. The ongoing trial is being conducted by PURA’s joint venture partner, Natures Comfort Meds.
Jaren was diagnosed six years ago with Pineoblastoma, a rare pediatric brain cancer. After years of battling his cancer with conventional treatments, Jaren recently decided to pursue cannabinol (CBD) treatment after receiving news in January this year that his cancer was progressing. CBD comes from the cannabis plant. It is a non-hallucinogenic cannabinoid that has been shown to have a number of medicinal benefits from treating arthritis to reducing cancer cells.
Jaren’s mother, Karen Suber recently came into USMJ’s prototype AmeriCanna Cafe located in the Dallas metroplex asking for CBD. Karen shared Jaren’s story with Troy Suddarth when she visited the store. USMJ purchased the City Blends Cafe licensed shop form Mr. Suddarth and he continues to work with USMJ running the store and helping to develop the AmeriCanna Cafe concept. Troy was moved by Jaren’s story and jumped into action to rally USMJ resources and partnerships to do whatever could be done for Jaren.
Texas Teen With Rare Pediatric Brain Cancer Wants To Try CBD Treatment
February 25, 2017
Karen Suber recently came into North American Cannabis Holding’s (“USMJ”) prototype AmeriCanna Cafe located in the Dallas metroplex asking for cannabinol known commonly as “CBD.” CBD comes from the cannabis plant. It is a non-hallucinogenic cannabinoid that has been shown to have a number of medicinal benefits from treating arthritis to reducing cancer cells.
Karen had read about USMJ’s work with Puration (“PURA”) to introduce a variety of cannabis infused consumer foods and beverages. She was looking for something that might help her son, Jaren Suber, diagnosed six years earlier with Pineoblastoma, a rare pediatric brain cancer. The Suber family received news in January this year, the Jaren’s cancer was progressing.
USMJ purchased a City Blends Smoothie Cafe licensed store in the Dallas Metroplex in 2015 as the foundation of a plan to build the AmeriCanna Cafe concept restaurant. The purchased City Blends Smoothie Cafe is where Karen came to find CBD. Her timing could be fortuitous.
Texas is required to issue three medical cannabis licenses by September 1, 2017 under the Compassionate Use Act passed into law by Governor Gregg Abbot in 2015. At the same time USMJ and PURA have collaborated to introduce their first CBD Infused product. EVERx CBD Infused Bottled Water will be officially launched Friday, March 3, 2017 at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Annual Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio.
Karen shared Jaren’s story with Troy Suddarth when she visited the store. USMJ purchased the City Blends Cafe shop form Mr. Suddarth and he continues to continues to work with USMJ running the store and helping to develop the AmeriCanna Cafe concept. She told Troy about Jaren’s adventure at the White House visiting President Obama thanks to the Make-A-Wish-Foundation. She shared how brave Jaren has been and how Jaren no longer wants to pursue chemotherapy, but is set on trying CBD. She also mentioned Jaren’s dream of traveling to Hawaii. She sent a link to Jaren’s GoFundMe account to raise funds for a trip to Hawaii.
Troy was moved by Jaren’s story and jumped into action to rally USMJ and PURA’s combined resources to do whatever could be done for Jaren. PURA had recently entered into a business deal with ML Capital Group (“MLCG”), a company that happens to run luxury tours in Hawaii, and now in partnership with PURA, is introducing cannabis luxury tours. Separately, PURA has a joint venture agreement with a not-for-profit organization called Natures Comfort Meds (“NCM”). NCM has a patented process for extracting cannabinoids form cannabis. NCM’s extracts are being used in trial treatments of various conditions and diseases to include the treatment of cancer.
On Tuesday, February 28th, 2017, at USMJ’s prototype AmeriCanna Cafe store in the Dallas Metroplex, Troy Suddarth, on behalf of USMJ, PURA, NCM and MLCG, will present Jaren and his family with a travel package to visit the Island of Maui in Hawaii. He and his mom and dad will fly on Delta Airlines and Stay at the Grand Wailea Resort. They will be transported by MLCG’s Platinum Tours and be invited on several excursions around the Island. Upon their return, they will be invited to visit one of NCM’s treatment trials for evaluation as a candidate for CBD treatment.
