The law firm of Federman & Sherwood has launched an investigation of CannaVEST Corp. (OTC: CANV) (“CANV” or “the Company”) for possible violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and/or breaches of fiduciary duty by the Company’s officers and directors during the period of May 20, 2013 and April 3, 2014.

Federman & Sherwood’s investigation surrounds whether the Company violated specific sections of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the Company’s failure to disclose that its financial statements for the first three (3) quarters of 2013 were allegedly false and misleading and could not be relied upon. CannaVEST further stated that assets acquired related to PhytoSPHERE Systems was not allocated properly and in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), and therefore sales and cost of sales for the Company's quarter ended March 31, 2013 were incorrect. Following these revelations by CANV on April 3, 2014, the value of CANV shares declined by approximately 20 percent after the market closed on that day.
