Pressure BioScience (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based instruments, consumables and platform-technology solutions to the worldwide life sciences and other industries, today announced that it has signed a binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to merge with Cannaworx, Inc. (USA) and its diverse portfolio of products and intellectual property. The merger will combine Cannaworx’s proprietary portfolio of consumer products with the application of PBIO’s breakthrough ultra shear technology (“UST”). Following the merge, the company will utilize its extensive intellectual property portfolio, consisting of a proprietary pressure platform, nanotechnology and advanced delivery systems, to disrupt markets including the booming U.S. hemp-derived CBD market. “We have been actively searching for an opportunity to participate in the end-product growth and upside we believe our UST platform creates and delivers. We are very excited to bring our companies together for what we believe to be a momentous inflection point in significant new growth and increased shareholder value,” PBIO president and CEO Richard T. Schumacher stated in the news release.

About Pressure BioSciences Inc.
Pressure BioSciences is a leader in the development and sale of innovative, broadly enabling, pressure-based solutions for the worldwide life-sciences industry. The company’s products are based on the unique properties of both constant (i.e., static) and alternating (i.e., pressure-cycling technology, or “PCT”) hydrostatic pressure. PCT is a patented, enabling technology platform that uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels to safely and reproducibly control bio-molecular interactions (e.g., cell lysis, biomolecule extraction). PBIO’s primary focus is in the development of PCT-based products for biomarker and target discovery, drug design and development, biotherapeutics characterization and quality control, soil and plant biology, forensics and counter-bioterror applications. Additionally, major new market opportunities have emerged in the use of its pressure-based technologies in the following areas: (1) the use of its recently acquired, patented technology from BaroFold Inc. (the “BaroFold” technology) to allow entry into the biopharma contract services sector, and (2) the use of its recently patented, scalable, high-efficiency, pressure-based Ultra Shear Technology (“UST”) platform to (i) create stable nanoemulsions of otherwise immiscible fluids (e.g., oils and water) and (ii) prepare higher-quality, homogenized, extended shelf-life or room-temperature, stable, low-acid liquid foods that cannot be effectively preserved using existing nonthermal technologies.
