The Company takes this action concurrently with the impending release of the Company's new skin care product line: The Hempery TM. On May 20, 2015 please visit www.thehempery.com to purchase "The Hempery" skin care product line all made in the USA.
The Board has been impressed with the progress and relentless work ethic of Greta since she began. Her passion and leadership led the Board to its unanimous decision to elect her President and CEO and continue to let her grow the business model. We are equally pleased to announce that Dr. Dorothy Bray remains on the Board of Directors, and the Company will continue to benefit from Dr. Bray's extensive clinical expertise. Both Dorothy and Greta serve on the Cannabis Science Inc (OTC: CBIS) Advisory Board. Cannabis Science has a vested interest in the success of OmniCanna.
Ms. Gaines' first endeavor as CEO and President is to bring to market a skin care line of products she developed called The Hempery. The skin care items are the Hempery Miracle Oil, the Hemp Milk Body Wash, the Hemp Lotion Bar, Hemp Rose Soap and Hemptastique Lip Balm. The products' "feels as good as it heals" TM slogan was chosen because they contain an abundance of hemp seed oil and coconut oil—some of the most nutrient and protein rich ingredients available for deep moisturizing of the skin.
The initial release of the products is planned to coincide with the Patients Out of Time Ninth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, May 21-23, 2015 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Alongside Cannabis Science Inc (OTC: CBIS), The Hempery will have a presence as a sponsor for a golf tournament and products will be available to sample and for sale.

Greta has displayed a lifelong pattern of success in business from her early days as the first women's extreme snowboarding world champion to running her own snowboarding camps for women. Greta went on to produce her own television programming on the shows she hosted for Oxygen and ESPN 2. She furthers her success in the entertainment industry with multiple southern-rock album releases. Ms. Gaines has owned and operated her own record label since 1999, through which she has learned marketing, distribution and production.

This makes Ms. Gaines' renowned voice in the market vital to the Company, as the Company believes that women will be the first to invest in and use OmniCanna products.
"My relationship with the Company and its Board has been amazing since the beginning; I was privileged to be brought onto the team a couple of years ago when OmniCanna Health Solutions purchased some of my products. It is an honor to have made the progress we have and I am excited at what the prospects are for the company going into 2016," stated Ms. Gaines, Director, President and CEO, OmniCanna Health Solutions, Inc.
"The timing is perfect for Greta's appointment which comes right as we have gotten final approval to release The Hempery products. We feel that our financial filings, delayed because of a third-party auditor issue, will be up to date and current by the end of the year. We are confident that we will also benefit from a full line of products and cash flow," stated Robert Kane, Director and CFO.

About The Hempery
The Hempery products truly are nature's perfect skin care because they contain an abundance of pure hemp seed oil and coconut oil. Hemp seed oil has been called "nature's perfect food for humanity." A rare protein known as globule edestins is found only in the hemp seed and it mimics the globulin found in blood plasma. Hemp contains all the essential amino acids necessary for human life. Coconut oil also contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful medicinal properties. Skin is the largest and fastest growing organ in the body. Since skin absorbs a large part of what we put on it—why not use the most regenerative and nourishing substances available? The base of all the products in The Hempery collection is the unique pairing of hemp seed oil and coconut oil—an ultra nutritious treat for the skin. Your skin can now experience the miracle of their benefits every day.
