NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc. Announces Formation and Licensing of Distribution Company, Green Thumb Distributors, Inc.

 Addition of Distribution Arm Completes Vertical Integration

Alameda, California, Oct. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc. (“NewBridge” or the “Company”), (OTCQB: NBGV), a company focused on the emerging and dynamic legal and regulated cannabis industry, today announced that it has completed the formation of Green Thumb Distributors, Inc. (“Green Thumb”).

Green Thumb has applied for Type 11 distribution licenses in California which will allow for the transporting of cannabis goods as well as laboratory testing, quality assurance review, ensuring compliance with all packaging and labeling requirements and storage of cannabis goods. Since the start of 2018, California has required both adult use and medical marijuana to pass through a distributor before reaching a retailer. A new 5,000 square foot warehouse located in the “Green Zone” of Oakland, California will be operational later this year.

Bob Bench, Interim President of NewBridge commented, “The formation of Green Thumb Distributors completes NewBridge’s vertical integration along with the acquisitions we recently completed that includes:  genetics, cloning, cultivation, extraction, consulting, and education. Taken together, the acquisition of the consortium of companies in California, the subsequent $3 million capital raise, and now the formation of Green Thumb, delivers on our team’s commitment to build out a fully integrated vertical cannabis platform and provides NewBridge with a strong foundation for rapid growth and expansion as we continue to build a world-class portfolio of companies and assets within the legal cannabis industry.”
