GrowLife, Inc. (OTC: PHOT) (formerly Phototron Holdings, Inc.), a leading technology supplier to the hydroponic growing industry today announced that it has acquired and is actively developing Cannabis.Org as an information portal for the medical marijuana industry. Details regarding the creative content, celebrity-sponsor/contributors and release plans will be announced in Q4 2012, closer to the full release of the website.
GrowLife CEO Sterling Scott explained: “There are a very limited number of immediately recognizable portals for our industry like Cannabis.Org. GrowLife is very fortunate that our prominent position in the industry has allowed us this exciting opportunity to promote industry advocacy and events along with links that allow merchandising of technology and lifestyle products. Cannabis.Org will also be a powerful venue for our celebrity sponsors to reach millions of new potential customers in our core demographics.”
SearchCore, Inc. (OTCBB: SRER), (OTCQX: SRER) acquired another highly recognizable industry portal, Marijuana.Com, in a cash transaction for a reported $4,200,000 in November 2011. According to GrowLife CEO Sterling Scott, the rights transfer to GrowLife for Cannabis.Org was a stock only transaction.
GrowLife’s acquisition of Cannabis.Org and its development plans are part and parcel of the continued development of GrowLife, Inc. as a lifestyle company to compliment its premier hydroponic equipment brands.
