VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 27, 2017) - Cannabix Technologies Inc. (CSE:BLO)(CSE:BLO.CN)(OTC PINK:BLOZF) (the "Company or Cannabix") developer of the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and the workplace, is pleased to announce that preliminary human subject testing during the month of March have produced excellent results. Cannabix is developing its FAIMS- (field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry) based marijuana breathalyzer for the detection of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol ("THC") in human breath. Testing using the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer Beta prototype device with human subjects after smoking THC cigarettes demonstrated the successful detection of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, in real-time. In addition to THC, several metabolites were identified in the breath of the human subjects including 11-hydroxy-delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and delta-9-carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol, and three other cannabinoids related to cannabigerol, were confirmed by mass spectrometry after the inhalation of cannabis.
