Cannabix Hand-held THC Marijuana Breathalyzer is being developed to give law enforcement and employers the ability to test for recent consumption of the THC component of marijuana
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb 5, 2016) - Cannabix Technologies Inc. (CSE:BLO) (OTC PINK:BLOZF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has launched a new corporate video outlining its focus on developing a marijuana breathalyzer for law enforcement and the workplace. The new video can be viewed at www.cannabixtechnologies.com. The launch of the video comes on the heels of the Company announcing its licensing University of Florida US Patent 8,237,118 ("the Patent") in the area of breath analysis of controlled substances. The Company also announced a private placement where it intends to raise up to $1,000,000 via a non-brokered financing at $0.15 cents per unit. The proceeds of the financing will be used to develop a hand marijuana breathalyzer and related products.
Kal Malhi, President of Cannabix stated, " Drugged Driving is quickly replacing drunk driving as the leading cause of fatal collisions and law enforcement is in urgent need of a scientific tool to help enforce road safety from drug impaired drivers. Cannabix has been working with Dr. Rick Yost at the University of Florida and we have made immense progress in the development of a hand held marijuana breathalyzer. We recently exercised our option early on the patent license for FAIMS technology that will be the basis of our marijuana breathalyzer devices. We are in the process of filing intellectual property applications to protect products that will be developed based on this patent and FAIMS technology. We are also evaluating other technologies and collaborations that will further strengthen Cannabix's leading position in the field of a marijuana Breathalyzer and will provide updates as they occur."

About Cannabix Technologies Inc.
Cannabix Technologies Inc. is a leader in marijuana breathalyzer development for law enforcement and the workplace. Cannabix has established breath testing technologies in the pursuit of bringing durable, portable hand-held tools to market to enhance detection of marijuana impaired driving offences on roads at a time when marijuana is becoming legal in many jurisdictions globally. Cannabix is working to develop drug-testing devices that will detect Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC- the psychoactive component of marijuana that causes intoxication) using breath samples. This technology would be used to provide detection of use of THC at the roadside to identify drivers intoxicated by the recent use of marijuana. In particular, Cannabix is focused on developing breath testing devices for THC detection that would target recent use of THC, in contrast to saliva or urine testing for THC which can be invasive and take considerable time for laboratory analysis. The devices will also be useful for other practical applications such as testing employees in the workplace where intoxication by THC can be hazardous.
We seek Safe Harbor.
