HARBIN, China , February 1, 2012 (press release) – China Kangtai Cactus Biotech Inc. CKGT 0.00% , a vertically integrated grower, developer, manufacturer and marketer of a variety of cactus-based products in China, announced today that it has developed a new technique to apply to its cactus-based cigarette product.
