Puration Inc (OTCMKTS:PURA), the tiny CBD-infused water company, is now under the spotlight as the CEO made mention in an interview that LA Libations, the innovation arm of Coca-Cola, is showing interest in the company’s Everx CBD Sports Water.
Beverages are one of the key segments in the cannabis industry to watch as they could have instant market appeal sending the cannabis industry into every household.

PURA operates a U.S. Patented Cannabis Extraction process and sells its extracts for infusion into a variety of consumer products to include beverages, foods, nutritional supplements, and cosmetics.
Resulting from their own design and engineering, the company’s water purification systems include personal water filter bottles, collapsible water pouches, replacement filters, and travel filters.

According to the press release, PURA debuted its EVERx CBD Sports Water early last year at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Arnold Sports Festival. EVERx has since become the leading CBD infused beverage in the sports nutrition marketplace. The company reported 600% sales growth in the second quarter of this year and recently announced a $1 million annual revenue benchmark being potentially within reach for 2018. The company has its first THC infused beverage, THCSavor, under development and has recently announced a letter of intent to acquire a company with a third cannabis sector beverage. The acquisition is anticipated to be completed later this month.
Plus, PURA also announced it would be spinning off its cannabis cultivation business. According to the release, “The spinoff is part of the overall strategy for Puration to concentrate ongoing business development efforts on the company’s flourishing cannabis-infused beverage business. The spinoff announced last week has been effected through the execution of a securities exchange agreement with Nouveau Life Pharmaceuticals, Inc., (OTC: NOUV). PURA has sold its cannabis cultivation business in exchange for a convertible purchase note issued by NOUV. All of the NOUV common shares issued in conversion of the purchase note are slated for distribution to PURA shareholders in a dividend distribution following a recapitalization of NOUV.”
Carrying a capital value in the market of $10.15M, PURA has a solid balance sheet and plenty of momentum. The bulls will leave the stock if more news does not come out soon, but this might be one to hold onto as all of cannabis might be lifted as Legalization looms across the border.
