anewco-228x300Cannabis Sativa, Inc is a developer of cannabis strains and a seller of cannabis-infused products. It has two subsidiary companies: Kush and Wild Earth Naturals.

Founded in Utah in 2014, Cannabis Sativa, Inc was originally a tanning salon company called Ultra Sun Corp. In July 2013, it acquired Wild Earth Naturals, Inc, which marked its transition into the herbal care sector. It became Cannabis Sativa, Inc in November 2013, and in July 2014, it announced that former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson has become its CEO and President.

Today, Cannabis Sativa, Inc is based in Mesquite, Nevada. It trades in the OTC markets as CBDS and its market cap is pegged at USD 120.26 M.

Its recently-acquired subsidiary Kush serves as its research and development division. The subsidiary, also known as Kush Cosmetics, has so far produced two strains of medicinal cannabis. One is the patent-pending CTA strain, which is described as potent, and the other is the proprietary NTZ strain.

In addition, Kush has developed a proprietary marijuana delivery system using lozenges. According to the company, this delivery method is better than smoking or eating edibles because with lozenges, users can control dosages more easily. Another product of Kush is a proprietary cannabis-based trauma cream formula.

The subsidiary Wild Earth Naturals, on the other hand, produces and sells hemp oil-infused products for skin care and pain management. Some of these products are a headache reliever called “Release” and a muscle or joint pain reliever called “Recover”. It also has a skin care line called “Skin Garden”, which features face and body creams and a lip balm.

Cannabis Sativa, Inc is led by Johnson as its CEO and President, alongside Kush founder Steve Kubby, who serves as the company’s Chairman.
