Forward-Looking Statements
Statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K may be "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as "anticipate", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend" and similar expressions, as they relate to the company or its management, identify forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the company's business based, in part, on assumptions made by management. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may, and probably will, differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements due to numerous factors. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this release. Information on the Acacia or MariJ Pharmaceuticals websites does not constitute a part of this Current Report.
Section 8 – Other Events
Item 8.01 Other Events
On November 29, 2017, Acacia Diversified Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) disseminated a press release to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, MariJ Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“MariJ”), had received a License to Operate: Manufactured Food Establishment certificate issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.  The license was issued on November 8, 2017 and is valid through June 30, 2018.  Company principals believe that this license validates the organic and food grade quality material that MariJ is able to produce from its mobile extraction labs on various farms in Colorado.  This license acquisition is a highly significant achievement for the Company as it facilitates operation of the MariJ mobile extraction lab fleet.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
