Terra Tech Corp. Files Provisional Patent Application for Cannabis-Infused Rolling Papers
Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) (“Terra Tech” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated, cannabis-focused agriculture company, announced it has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for innovative cannabis-infused rolling papers. The inventive rolling papers, which are expected to launch in 2018, will be the latest addition to the Company’s portfolio of IVXX™ branded premium cannabis products, which includes flowers, concentrates, custom-rolled joints and edibles. As with all IVXX products, the rolling papers will be free of toxic pesticides, harmful molds and chemical residues.
The patent application covers the infusion of cannabis concentrates in rolling papers to achieve enhanced levels of active ingredients. Rolling papers with varying concentrations of cannabis concentrate, as well as with varying flavors and aromas, can be produced to achieve a personalized experience for the user. As part of Terra Tech’s aggressive IP protection program, the patent application is expected to ultimately mature into a fully enforceable issued patent to protect the Company’s proprietary technology.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, commented, “Infusing rolling papers with cannabis can enhance the user experience for adult-use and medical cannabis users alike, for example by customizing the amount of active ingredients available in a joint, without the need to manually add a concentrate to the flower in a joint. Furthermore, cannabis concentrate infused rolling papers can come in a range of different flavors. We are pleased to have filed this patent as we work toward growing our IP portfolio and expanding our range of premium quality cannabis products.”
Terra Tech’s proprietary IVXX cannabis products are grown and harvested under the safest and most beneficial conditions. All products are thoughtfully produced, rigorously tested and certified to the highest standards of potency and purity. They are sold in dispensaries across California and Nevada, including at Terra Tech’s ‘Blüm’ retail and medical cannabis in Oakland, CA, Reno, Nevada and Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as at third party dispensaries.
