VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemesis International Inc. (CSE: CSI) (OTC: CADMF) (FRA: CWAA) (the “Company” or “Chemesis”), is pleased to announce it has entered into a multiyear licensing deal with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes (a/k/a Jay and Silent Bob) for the development and promotion of cannabis products in the U.S., including flower, oils, extracts, pre-rolls, cones, edibles, and other consumer products having recreational adult and medicinal uses.
“Kevin Smith is many things to many people,” said Edgar Montero, CEO of Chemesis. “To us, he is one of the most prolific content creators of our generation and the foremost authority on all things comedy, comics, and superfandom. His fans respect him because he views the world with a critical eye for excellence and authenticity, but he also is able to sit back and enjoy the moment. What better way to enjoy the moment than with our products, and what better critics to assure their quality than Kevin and Jay.”
Kevin Smith is a filmmaker, actor, comic book writer, author and podcaster well known for his comedy film Clerks, which he also starred in as the character Silent Bob. Jason Mewes is also an actor known for his work in Clerks as the character Jay. Both Jay and Silent Bob have since appeared in Smith’s follow-up films Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Clerks 2 and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
Kevin and Jay also are renown for their internet presence with a collective social media footprint of 12.4 million followers, including personal accounts of 3.5 million on Twitter, 1.9 million on Instagram, and 3.8 million on Facebook. With numerous additional social media projects and podcasts, the full extent of their reach becomes immeasurable.
As a part of the exclusive licensing agreement, the company will issue $400,000 USD in stock based on the 5-day volume-weighted average price (“VWAP”) as of November 13, 2018. On each annual anniversary, $150,000 USD in stock is paid based on the previous 5-day VWAP. Products are scheduled for launch in Q1 2019.
Kevin will be with Chemesis on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at MJBizCon in Las Vegas at booth 1233. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Snoochie boochies!
