(VAPE) (the “Company”), a holding company focused on providing efficient, healthy and sustainable vaporization products, is pleased to announce that its premier HIVE Ceramics branded product line has successfully expanded its multi-channel distribution plan and is now more widely available to consumers, improving its position for market penetration and maximum growth. The multi-channel distribution strategy has expanded very quickly over the past few months and includes several national and international distributors, over 1,100 authorized dealers and itsHiveCeramics.com e-commerce site.

Vape Holdings recently entered into a wide-scale distributor relationship with GotVape.com  for the U.S. distribution of its HIVE Ceramics product line. GotVape.com, founded back in 2001, is an industry leading Vaporizer Health Network, boasting the top online vaporizer retail site in the world as well as an expansive nationwide wholesale distribution chain.  GotVape.com is extremely excited to introduce the HIVE Ceramics product line to their established customer base, and has already received their first HIVE order as of last week.

Additional distributor relationships have been finalized to distribute HIVE products throughout Canada.

When Pot Stocks Aren’t So High: Looking In The Bargain Bin For Opportunity

The US has been caught in the midst of a new market revolution, which is legalized marijuana. Some states go the medical route and others have found huge success by way of legalized recreational marijuana.

Marijuana Sector Positioned to Move Higher as FDA Reviews Drug’s Status

WHITEFISH, MT / June 30, 2014 / The Marijuana Index(TM) traded marginally lower last week after MedBox Inc. (OTC:MDBX) and CannaVEST Corp.’s (OTC:CANV) moves lower offset GW Pharmaceuticals plc’s (NASDAQ:GWPH) modest gains.

Top gainers included Tauriga Sciences Inc. (TAUG), which jumped more than 60% after saying that it remains on track with its Honeywood acquisition to commercial products in the medicinal cannabis sector, and Vape Holdings Inc. (VAPE), which jumped more than 40% after reporting results from the soft launch of its e-commerce website HiveCeramics.com last week. The largest decliners included Easton Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC:EAPH), which fell nearly 20% last week.

Cannabis regulatory initiatives and news were mixed last week. While the United Nations warned about a rise in cannabis-related medical cases following legalization efforts, the U.S. FDA indicated that it would reconsider marijuana’s status as a Schedule I Controlled Substance. Legalization efforts have also gained ground in many U.S. states, with Oregon and Alaska becoming two battlegrounds for recreational legalization efforts over the coming year.

Vape Holdings Reports Results From Soft Launch of Its E-Commerce Website at HiveCeramics.com

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Vape Holdings, Inc. (VAPE) (the “Company”), a holding company focused on providing healthy and sustainable vaporization products, is pleased to announce its new e-commerce platform at HiveCeramics.com.  On the heels of the first wave of wholesale sales of its premier HIVE Ceramics brand product line, the Company has expanded its sales reach direct to the consumer.

The HiveCeramics.com website brought in over 300 retail sales and saw over 58,000 hits last month alone – over 12,000 of them unique visitors – without a full e-commerce site, full product line or any paid or formal advertising.  Thus far the Company has relied on word-of-mouth, various social networking accounts, and industry reputation to guide interest.

“We have worked diligently since acquiring HIVE just over two months ago to establish our wholesale distribution platform, partnering with authorized dealers across the country and internationally.  The opening of the HiveCeramics.com e-commerce site is the next step in our multi-channel expansion plan of the HIVE brand,” stated Kyle Tracey, CEO, Vape Holdings, Inc.

“As I have said repeatedly, we are overwhelmed with the positive reception the industry has given to the HIVE Ceramics product line in just its first few months in the market,” added Tracey.  “We now plan to implement a streamlined marketing and advertising campaign to drive web traffic and online sales revenue.”

Growlife And Vape Holdings Enter LOI To Fund And Develop Pharmaceutical Grade Processes For Cannabis Extractions

COMPANIES TO SHARE EXPERTISE TO PURSUE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE ‘FUTURE OF CANNABIS’

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — GrowLife, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT), a diversified company operating in the legal cannabis industry which develops, markets and deploys products and services of legal cannabis, is pleased to announce a Joint Venture (JV) with Vape Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:VAPE) to fund the research and development of patentable technology to create pharmaceutical grade extractions from cannabis.

Each Company will bring its specific expertise to the Joint Venture; GrowLife providing Equipment Manufacturing while Vape Holdings provides guidance for the process technology and concentrate formulas. Cannabis extractions are a rapidly growing market segment of the legal cannabis market, and believed by many, including the partners, to be a significant part of the future of cannabis as consumers transition from the carcinogens often included with historical methods of drug delivery, to the more modern, safer, and efficient systems reliant on cannabis extracts. To that end, the partners in the Joint Venture are intent on introducing medical, food and pharma grade practices into the cannabis industry; from cultivation to extraction to delivery.  The Joint Venture looks to service a void in the industry with regard to SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) and GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices), which are instrumental in all regulated food and pharma grade production/manufacturing.

“While we are pleased that Dr. Gupta’s recent and excellent feature on cannabis medicine in Weed 2 showcased to many the value and benefits of cannabis extractions and concentrates, we have been working for some time to establish practices and products ready for this growing market sector,” stated Sterling Scott, CEO, GrowLife Inc. “We have been advocates for cannabis-as-medicine via efforts such as our own Cannabis.org, and Mr. Tracey has devoted his career to developing better and more efficient means of drug delivery.”

“Cannabis and its derivatives enter the bodies of millions of people every day and with the increased acceptance of cannabis as medicine and recreational drug, this trend will only grow in the coming years,” stated Kyle Tracey, CEO, Vape Holdings, Inc. “We need to become more cognizant of what we are putting into our bodies. If your morning orange juice wasn’t manufactured by certain standards to which we’ve become accustomed, would you still drink it? Would it taste the same? We must begin to apply similar quality standards and best practices for cannabis.  Our JV with GrowLife is a strong step in the right direction.”

The parties have agreed to negotiate the terms of a Joint Venture agreement (“Agreement”) and other ancillary agreements as may be necessary to effectuate the intent of the parties. It is the intention of the parties to execute a definitive joint venture agreement on or before April 20, 2014.
