DENVER, April 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bang Holdings Corp. (OTCQB:BXNG), through its subsidiary Bang Digital Media (the “Company”), a digital advertising company that provides content and its influencer-based marketing network to the legal cannabis industry, today announced its early success with its public relations campaign for the upcoming launch of the International Church of Cannabis (“Church”) in Denver, Colorado.

Bang recently announced a contract to launch and manage all of the digital media for the Church on March 22, 2017. Since implementing this contract, the Company has garnered international press coverage from several renowned global media outlets based outside of the United States, including France, Australia, England, India, Russia, and Kenya - in addition to the significant amount of major media and news outlets across the United States.

“We have been live with Dr. Drew discussing the International Church of Cannabis, we’ve been featured on TMZ twice, and we’ve been written about in the New York Post, Huffington Post, Denver Post, Russia Today, MSN, AOL, and organizations as far as Switzerland, Germany, Poland, India and Australia,” said Steve Berke, Chief Executive Officer of Bang Digital Media.

“The level of global interest in the International Church of Cannabis is a true testament to the ability of our unique marketing platform to successfully target cannabis enthusiasts around the globe; one of the fastest growing and lucrative demographic markets.  It truly has been a humbling experience to play such an instrumental role in introducing this peaceful movement to the world.”   

In addition to a public relations program, Bang’s contract also provides for Bang Digital Media to handle all of the digital strategy and social media management for the Church. Further, the Company is building out a unique social media website and app, along with delivering video production and content creation.

“We believe that the International Church of Cannabis is one of the most incredible and breathtaking organizations that Denver has to offer,” said Berke. “I believe, in time, the Church will help to completely reboot the stereotype of the average cannabis enthusiast.”

Based on last year’s 4/20 performance, Bang Digital Media expects to achieve several substantial media hits across all platforms on 4/20. The Company believes that its cross-promotion campaign should also favor its ‘International Church of Cannabis’ crowdfunding campaign.
