LAKE ELSINORE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aquentium, Inc. (OTCQB: AQNM), a manufacturer of ozone air and water purification systems for commercial businesses, announced today that the company will begin manufacturing ozone air and water purification equipment designed for use by legal growers of medical marijuana in the United States and internationally.
“Aquentium believes that America is at the beginning of a 'Green Rush,' an ever-increasing interest in the rapidly growing industry surrounding what seems to be the beginning of the end of marijuana prohibition. There are now 18 states that permit medical marijuana for people suffering from a multitude of serious illnesses and disorders, while residents in the state of Washington and the state of Colorado have already voted for legalization regarding recreational use,” stated Aquentium President Mark Taggatz.
The Aquentium ozone air systems are designed to eliminate unwanted odors, while the Aquentium water systems are designed to enhance growing by killing germs and diseases. Treating water with ozone will kill damaging bacteria and will sterilize the root base and growing media while providing roots with extra oxygen.
“Ozone is one of the most effective bactericides known. Waterborne diseases are controlled by the injected ozone, which destroys fungi, pathogenic bacteria, viruses and organochlorines. These disease-causing microbes can greatly reduce plant growth and yields or even destroy entire crops. Once it has done its job, any excess ozone will break down into oxygen, which super oxygenates the nutrient solution, promoting rapid healthy root development. Ozone is not harmful to beneficial aerobic bacteria that thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. Plants grow faster and healthier, producing higher yields,” added Taggatz.
Proponents of medical marijuana argue that it can be a safe and effective treatment for the symptoms of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, pain, glaucoma, epilepsy, and other conditions. They cite dozens of peer-reviewed studies, prominent medical organizations, and the use of marijuana as medicine throughout world history.
