PHOENIX, AZ (Marketwire – April 11, 2011) – Altitude Organic Corporation (PINKSHEETS: AMNG), a national publicly-traded medical marijuana company, announced today it has partnered with medicinal beverage producer Dixie Elixirs to create the Altitude Organix medical marijuana infused beverage line. Dixie Elixirs (http://dixieelixirs.com/) has chosen Altitude Organic Corporation to become its first private label production partner. Medical patients often prefer to use cannabis products without having to be exposed to the harmful effects smoking can cause lung tissue. The medicated beverages are a preferred delivery method of medicinal cannabinoid molecules such as THC, CBN, and CBD. These beverages are an excellent option for patients with respiratory illnesses or aversions to smoking. Altitude Organix beverage labels and promotional content will be viewable at (http://altitudeorganiccorp.com/) beginning this coming Wednesday, April 13th.

CEO of Altitude Organic Corp, Brian Cook, stated, “We want to thank Tripp Keber, Dixie Elixirs’ Managing Director, and his staff for the tour of their state-of-the-art production facility which we recently visited in Denver, Colorado. This state licensed bottling facility is a clear indication of Dixie’s commitment to regulatory compliance, quality production, customer satisfaction, and scientific testing. Dixie’s facility is second to none in our new industry. Upon Arizona state approval, we would like to build a collaborative production facility that will create more jobs and bring new commercial manufacturing and distribution to Arizona. A new bottling facility supplying the entire state patient base could grow exponentially after the state begins approving dispensaries sometime in August likely. Dixie Elixirs is also a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association (www.thecannabisindustry.org) and we have come together since meeting with the organization in Washington, DC. I greatly look forward to working closely with Dixie Elixirs going forward.”
Tripp Keber, Managing Director of Dixie Elixirs, LLC, added, “This strategic partnership with Altitude Organic Corporation is an exciting day for both of our companies and the MMJ industry itself. The past twelve months represents a tremendous amount of hard work and effort on Dixie’s behalf and this investment is beginning to pay off. We are confident that our branded and tested THC infused medicinal elixirs will be well received by MMJ patients as we roll out the co-branded offering.” Keber added, “I have been very impressed with the Altitude Organic management team and find their approach to this new industry to be in line with Dixie’s. This is a milestone for MMJ patients across the United States!”
