USEI Cannabis Expands Marketing of Vape Pens With Lollipopvapor and Will Attend MJBA Summer Seattle Vendor Fair as a VIP Sponsor

SANTA CLARITA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/14 -- USEI CANNABIS INITIATIVES CORP, A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDARY OF U.S. ENERGY INITIATIVES CORPORATION, INC. (OTC Pink: USEI) (PINKSHEETS: USEI) is pleased today to announce that USEI Cannabis and Lollipopvapor, are actively expanding its vapor pen partnership to a nationwide audience to proliferate our "Real McCoy Genuine Product" to become a national brand. Vapor Pens are devices will allow patients and recreational users to consume dry herbs, oil extracts, CBD and waxes (to extract their beneficial essence) undetected without the telltale aroma of tobacco or cannabis; utilizing a device that vaporizes the media into a pleasant vapor.

There are currently 22 states that have approved medical cannabis usage (estimated 8 million daily cannabis users and growing daily) and vapor pens are an excellent product that is legal for usage in all of those states and more. The demand for our products is ever increasing and our Lollipopvapor partnership can be a major contributor to the supply in the market with unique products consumers are seeking.

According to Anthony Miller CEO "On June 28 & 29 we will attend the MJBA Vendor Fair Summer event in Seattle. This is the 3rd event that we a have attended in the state of Washington; sponsored by the Marijuana Business Association. This is the first time that we are attending as a sponsor, and it will probably not be the last event that we will sponsor with them. Our goals are to expand our footprint into the state of Washington where in just weeks the cannabis industry will be open for business for medical and recreation just like Colorado. We are actively seeking for partnerships with growers and 502 licensees to expand USEI's business in the state. One of our goals is to establish a 'Real McCoy Genuine Product' retail store in the state to expand our vapor pen business in Washington. We have had a presence in the state of Washington since 2005 and we believe that this is and added advantage for us, as we attempt to gain our market share here. We will not limit our business just to the vapor market; we intend to penetrate all cannabis markets in this state; that are possible and legal. During this MJBA event we will sample our edible products and display a wide variety of pens for oil, wax and dry herb for the attendees. Note: we are still working in the state of Colorado and making progress everyday however, the pace is much slower than expected and announced. We will continue to press on in Colorado till we reach our goals".

"USEI and Lollipopvapor have been receiving deliveries of product and we expect delivery of a significant amount of inventory coming on a consistent basis and look forward to expansion into every state in the U.S since there are currently no limitations where we can market these products. Check out some images of our products on Twitter... many additional images will be on our website soon," further commented Miller.

About: Lollipopvapor: "We have a successful, proprietary line of Nicotine based flavor products which already produced gross sales in its first year of nearly 1 Million dollars. It's exciting to be adding Cannabis devices with such an experienced company who has such close ties to not only the broad industry but quality relationships with these individual dispensaries. We will be supplying USEI Cannabis with a mix of entry level and very high end devices and, where requested, we will be branding their name (The Real McCoy Genuine). Lollipopvapor and USEI Cannabis will share in the proceeds of the sale of these devices Nationwide where USEI Cannabis will enjoy 40% of the net revenues. We are satisfied with this percentage of product share as we feel it will allow our footprint to grow tremendously in the industry moving forward. I also feel we are just touching the tip of the iceberg and are working to offer other product solutions to USEI Cannabis and others."

MJBA Vendor Fair Summer: The best b2b trade event for Washington's I-502 growers, processors and retailers -- and many professional businesses who serve them. Enjoy live product demonstrations, receive educational information, savory cooking demonstrations and sample incredible new products. Special VIP Speakers and Entertainment will be there.

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
