September 10, 2014 - Vancouver, British Columbia – Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company” or “Vodis”) (CSE: VP / FSE: 1JV)) is pleased to announce it has entered into an exclusive sales and distribution Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with SynMatrix Inc. (“Synmatrix”) for SynMatrix’s proprietary LED lighting technology which has been specifically engineered for growing medical marijuana.
Vodis will become an exclusive Canadian and American distributor of Synmatrix’s LED lighting technology, which can be used for indoor grow operations, which have traditionally provided the best quality marijuana.
SynMatrix’s LED lighting is the marketable result of 8 months of beta testing and development between Vodis management and Synmatrix. The lights have the potential to cut down on both electricity and cooling costs and are cheaper to purchase than traditional HID bulbs.

About Lighting Needs in Marijuana Grow Operations
Most indoor grow operations use High Pressure Sodium (“HPS) or Metal-Halide (“MH”) lamps that use a significant amount of electricity and generate a large amount of heat in an indoor greenhouse or grow facility. Up to 80% of a traditional indoor grow facility, using these lights, will see 80% of its operating expenses incurred in electricity for lighting and cooling.
