Arista Financial Corp. (ARST)

Wallet Investor, OTC Markets, Newsfilter.io, Stockhouse, Market Exclusive, Investors Hangout, InvestorsHub, Simply Wall St, Morningstar, Dividend Investor, TradingView, and Seeking Alpha reported earlier on Arista Financial Corp. (ARST), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Arista Financial Corp. is a financial service holding company. It seeks to take advantage of the present vehicle finance marketplace by way of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Arista Capital. The Company provides innovative financing options to small lenders. It acts as a funding source to finance the lending activities of other asset-based lenders who are in need of considerable capital to grow their lending base. Arista Financial has its head office in Short Hills, New Jersey. The Company lists on the OTC Markets.

Arista Financial participates in the above-mentioned market via an array of funding arrangements. This includes debt financings, loan purchases or direct loan participations. The Company’s belief is that although small asset based lenders have limited access to capital after the financial crisis required to enable growth, these lenders have a very well managed and maintained origination, underwriting and administrative infrastructure. These lenders also have substantial expertise and experience in their specific area of lending.

Arista has accessed this experience and infrastructure by participating with these lenders in their lending opportunities. Therefore, it provides these small lenders with an ability to make additional loans that they otherwise would not be able to do either directly through a loan participation program with Arista or indirectly by allowing Arista to make the loan that they administer and hence better use their infrastructure.

Arista Financial seeks to partner with other experienced lending companies to make or buy equipment based loans where the collateral can be readily valued and easily repossessed if necessary and the rates are appropriate for the risk. The Company has seen this opportunity in the transportation equipment area. It has started to make and purchase transportation equipment loans (i.e. trucks). In addition, it will look at additional market areas if they have the same economics.

Arista Financial provides Financing options to equipment leasing companies to grow their portfolios. Regarding Portfolio Acquisitions, it acquires lease portfolios from the leasing companies and it continues to service those leases. Concerning Portfolio Growth Funding, this structure has allowed Arista’s partners to increase their own portfolio because of their ability to respond quickly and fund the transaction. Pertaining to a Line of Credit, having a line of credit allows leasing companies to bridge gaps in their present ability to self-fund transactions.

This past June, Arista Financial announced that it intends to enter the mortgage industry. The Company is expanding its lending capabilities to include mortgage products and services. It has already commenced the process of conducting extensive due diligence on a number of potential acquisition opportunities in the mortgage lending industry especially related to entities that have experience or the capability to do reverse mortgages.

Moreover in October 2019, Arista Financial announced that it will enter the mobility industry. It intends to carry out its activities in the mobility industry directly and also through a newly created majority-owned subsidiary, Arista Mobility Group Ltd.

(LXGTF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A medical device company, Lexington Biosciences, Inc. is developing the HeartSentry. This is a new non-invasive diagnostic device to measure and monitor cardiovascular health through assessing the function of a person's vascular endothelium. This is the vital innermost lining of a person's cardiovascular system. The Company’s aim is to become a leader in the development of clinical grade cardiovascular self-measurement solutions for home and clinical use. Lexington Biosciences has offices in Vancouver, British Columbia; and Reno, Nevada.

Lexington is engaged with the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and other regulatory agencies on the required product approvals for the HeartSentry. HeartSentry targets the fast-growing self-measurement medical device sector. The design of the HeartSentry unit is to use Bluetooth and Cloud technology to provide up-to-date and accurate readings of an individual’s total cardiovascular health via electronic monitoring for risk-assessment and treatment effectiveness targeting the prevention of heart attack and stroke.

HeartSentry is its flagship, and first device currently advancing to commercial deployment. The HeartSentry core technology underwent development at the University of California Berkeley over a fifteen-year research and development (R&D) period involving many research studies and product iterations resulting in a portfolio of numerous pending and issued patents licensed to Lexington Biosciences.

Lexington Biosciences announced earlier this year the completion of the initial HeartSentry study conducted at San Francisco Bay-area Diablo Clinical Research. Lexington Biosciences’ goal is to make HeartSentry accurate, fast, and cost effective so it can become the standard of care for cardiologists, general practitioners, and ultimately patients for first line evaluation of a person's cardiovascular health.

Over this past summer, Lexington Biosciences completed its first phase of clinical testing at Diablo Clinical Research. The results of the study validated safety protocols, provided Lexington with critical information for product iteration, algorithm development, and clinical testing protocol refinement in preparation for the forthcoming multi-center clinical study series.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (OTC: GRYN)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN).

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: GRYN) was featured today in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how the 2018 Farm Bill was instrumental in pushing the hemp industry from restriction to one worth billions of dollars. The legislation legalized the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp, classifying hemp as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC content. On condition that farmers grew the crop under state and tribal programs, and they adhered to the rule on THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), they were free to farm hemp.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN) is a full-scope, premium hemp cultivation and branding enterprise focused on the cultivation and processing of industrial hemp for the purpose of extracting cannabidiol (CBD). With more than 25 years of experience in agricultural science and innovation, Green Hygienics aims to become one of the largest providers of industrial hemp-derived CBD products on the planet.

Green Hygienics’ business model includes generating revenues from the sale of hemp and premium-grade CBD products, creating trusted global consumer brands, developing valuable intellectual property (IP) and growing rapidly through strategic acquisitions. With direct regard to acquisitions, the company acts as a business accelerator and a vertical integrator supporting rapid growth and development of companies with extraordinary potential.

Innovation – the Future of Commercial Cultivation

The greatest challenge of the cannabis industry is determining how to deliver a safe and premium-quality product on a consistent basis; antiquated production methods are riddled with recalls and are unsafe from a cultivation production standpoint. Green Hygienics’ solution is to employ scientific methodology combined with sustainable farm practices to achieve optimal soil refinement. The company’s objectives are to produce higher yields and a superior product on a consistent basis to always remain compliant through diligent testing. A secure, premium-quality supply chain is the foundation for the company’s operations.

Green Hygienics’ cultivation approach is based on scientific measurements and data analysis, which transform the cultivation environment into a laboratory environment to deliver superior product.

State-of-the-Art Processing

Processing hemp to produce the finest-quality CBD is a complex, multistage process that should be performed with adherence to the highest standards. Once harvested, the hemp must be carefully handled, dried and stored to prepare it for CBD extraction. Each and every step must be given full care and attention. Green Hygienics’ ambition is to create state-of-the-art infrastructure, employ the latest large-scale processing technologies and adhere to strict quality management systems.

The company strives to constantly develop innovations in industrial hemp for CBD cultivation and to create solutions that lower costs, deliver higher yields and address the challenges of large-scale production.

Brand Development, Marketing and Direct Sales

One of the core drivers of the Green Hygienics business model is to develop or acquire unique brands with global distribution potential. The company sees the market becoming increasingly competitive, and establishing Green Hygienics’ own distinct, trusted brands will be important. By controlling its own supply chain, the company can also leverage strategic advantages in the marketplace, such as the ability to deliver a “best in class” product on a consistent basis. Successful branding is demonstrated by a positive response to a company’s customer service, reputation and products, and Green Hygienics Holdings is acutely aware of the value in this.

Ahead of the Curve

The clear competitive advantage Green Hygienics holds over industry peers is cultivating premium product within the upper-scale product category more efficiently than anyone else in the industry. Currently, the average-size hemp farm in North America is 9 acres. Green Hygienics addresses the challenge of scalability through its farming methodology.

The company’s objective is to produce a higher quality of product at a lower cost and to deliver the finest-quality product to consumers without exception.

In today’s market, inefficient companies and those that produce an inferior product will become vulnerable or disappear, adding considerable value to companies like Green Hygienics that efficiently innovate and operate. The premium cannabis market will continue to achieve higher pricing, and the demand will stabilize. At the end of the day, successful branding backed by superior product will cause companies like Green Hygienics to rise above the competition.

Outlook

Companies within the cannabis sector, states and lawmakers are still figuring out how legislation, consumer demand and innovations will shape the industry. As a safeguard and for long-term resilience, Green Hygienics is preparing for the next plateau with proprietary cultivation and processing systems and tightly controlled growth environments that enable containment of production costs, delivery of higher yields and production of a premium product. These margins will provide the company with a strategic advantage within an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Green Hygienics is constantly studying the market dynamics in North America and abroad and anticipates that both the domestic and international markets will appreciate and be willing to pay a premium to those companies that can deliver best-in-class products.

In line with this expectation, the company’s additional objectives are to secure investment, enhance its balance sheet and increase its value through profitable operations as well as through acquiring and owning the real estate or land it builds upon. Over the long term, this will help Green Hygienics grow in value, provide leverage for rapid expansion and offer security for investors. The company will be positioned to capitalize on any opportunity within the industry or to acquire distressed assets, which is part of its growth strategy.

Green Hygienics plans to establish lead brands starting in the California market, to secure trademarks, and to develop and secure intellectual property assets with regard to cultivation and processing.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN), closed Friday's trading session at $2.00, up 1.0101%, on 1,050 volume with 4 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,722 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.224999994/$2.48000001.

Wonderfilm has several potential breakout films in its development/production queue.

Note: Potential breakout films are not factored into company’s revenue projections.

Wonderfilm Global Distribution

At the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Wonderfilm officially launched Wonderfilm Global, a new film, television and media foreign sales/distribution joint venture with 101 Films and Paul McGowan.

Wonderfilm acquired 51% ownership in the joint venture structure and immediately began attaching its own productions to Wonderfilm Global. The joint venture represents a significant opportunity for Wonderfilm, changing how the company does business.

The intention behind Wonderfilm Global is to keep distribution margins in-house that previously went to other companies. Since most Wonderfilm movies are relatively low-risk and easy to sell because they feature desirable cast and genre, third-party distribution companies were previously earning approximately 10%, plus expenses, on Wonderfilm movies without any level of risk. Now, revenue is generated through presales of Wonder?lm projects and, at times, third-party films. The average Wonder?lm movie is pre-sold for $5million, garnering $500,000 to $750,000 per sale as a commission. These commissions now stay in-house with Wonder?lm Global, and the company expects to sell 10 to 12 third-party films between fall 2019 and fall 2020, generating roughly $6 million in commission income.

A further revenue source is generated from theatrical sales through a 50/50 upside split once the minimum sales threshold is met.

Wonder?lm Global has offices in Vancouver, Beverly Hills, London, Ireland, Seoul and China.

Wonderfilm Business Model

Wonderfilm productions are structured to begin generating a return to the company as soon as the camera starts rolling.

Return Before a Film is Delivered: Producer fee line items are included in each production budget. These range from $50,000 to $500,000, depending on the total budget, and are paid to Wonderfilm most commonly on the first day of principle photography.

Distribution: Wonderfilm Global charges sales and distribution fees within each production budget to cover its presale costs.

Note: Wonderfilm’s productions are all structured to minimize risk by matching budget to funds available.

Return After a Film is Delivered: Unsold presale territories are countries or territories left off of a film’s presale list, either for strategic reasons or because the broadcaster/distributor is waiting to see the completed film. These outside-the-budget distribution sales become Wonderfilm profit centers.

Sales overages once contracted presale threshold is surpassed.

The company’s film library grows with each new production, adding to future sales revenue. Depending on the agreement, exploitation rights for future worldwide sales return to Wonderfilm four or seven years after delivery. As of October 2019, Wonderfilm’s growing film library comprises 18 titles for future exploitation.

Note: The nature of the film business is that box office revenue lags production up to a couple of years.

$50 Million Wonderfilm Production Fund (WPF):

Wonderfilm is in the process of raising $50 million to establish a Wonderfilm Production Fund (WPF). WPF is designed to consolidate traditional production financing models into a single diversified, asset-backed debt instrument.

The WPF is a highly specialized investment vehicle with noncorrelated market returns normally reserved for institutional banks and specialty lenders, and it would pay 8% interest directly from each Wonderfilm movie or series budget and not from corporate funds. These same interest payments are already added to each production budget, as the company currently closes a separate financing for every film. The WPF would significantly streamline Wonderfilm’s production rate, adding revenue more quickly and broadening the yearly production slate.

For fund investors, the WPF is a dedicated production-financing vehicle designed to offer a risk-moderated approach to investing in film finance. The managed process provides structure and reassurance that are normally experienced only when working with an institutional lender that has a dedicated staff and resources.

All projects being financed are for Wonderfilm productions, with the fund collateral fully secured by receivables, including presale contracts, government incentives, or a guarantee from Wonderfilm for any unsecured amounts as may be permitted.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight SinglePoint, Inc. (SING).

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) was highlighted in today's edition of the Cleantech and Climate Change Podcast, talking about today's problems and solutions for the future. Listen to the Podcast: http://ibn.fm/yydjO.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.

SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.

SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:

  • A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
  • A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
  • A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
  • Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
  • Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
  • Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.

SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.

Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.

SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), closed Friday's trading session at $0.00785, up 1.9481%, on 4,363,356 volume with 142 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 3,000,290 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.007/$0.028799999.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF).

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF) was featured today in a publication from CBDWire, examining how HTPRF is approaching its end of year operations riding high on a series of strategic decisions designed to establish a modular, economical production chain for obtaining hemp, extracting profitable chemical compounds and distributing those compounds through sales-to-consumer marketplaces. Also today, the company was featured in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. A wave of marijuana legalization has been sweeping across the U.S., and its genesis can be traced to Colorado and Washington approving marijuana legalization initiatives way back in 2012. In each biennial election that followed, additional states followed through with their own marijuana legalization initiatives, and experts believe 2020 will be a landmark year for marijuana.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.

Advanced Extraction Technologies

For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:

  • LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
  • PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
  • Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.

Delta Purification® Technology

HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:

  • Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
  • Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
  • Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.

Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts

HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.

Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.

re3™ Technology

Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.

The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.

Sales and Offtake Agreements

HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.

Project Construction

HTC has focused the Canadian implementation of its BOOM (build, own, operate and maintain) extraction tolling strategy on a location near Regina, Saskatchewan. HTC is currently constructing a 19,000-square-foot GMP Euro compliant extraction tolling facility on six acres of land that will include biomass processing, extraction, implementation of DeltaSolv™ technologies and Delta Purification® systems, distillate and refining equipment, laboratory quality control and testing operations, and on-site office and admin facilities.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF) is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees and culture of innovation. The company aims to grow the world’s best legal cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. Supreme Cannabis calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol, “FIRE,” a testament to the company’s passion for cannabis and obsession with quality.

Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as one of Canada’s most premium cannabis producers, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.

A key piece of Supreme Cannabis’ ability to fulfill its mission is its flagship brand, 7ACRES, a wholly owned subsidiary that operates a 440,000-square-foot hybrid cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario. 7ACRES is focused on building a core competency in scaled high-quality cannabis production. With a best-in-class cultivation facility producing a competitive product that fuels a leading premium brand, Supreme Cannabis has achieved a differentiated advantage in cultivation IP, products and branding. The company’s foundational investment in premium cultivation has secured it a leadership position in the industry as the Canadian market becomes more competitive and matures.

Since legalization, 7ACRES has brought five premium flower strains to market in Canada. The demand for 7ACRES product continues with the company’s most recent launch of Jack Haze, a new proprietary premium cultivar. The company’s first sativa-dominant strain, Jack Haze offers rare sensory characteristics, delivering high THC content with a terpinolene forward profile, including a complex aroma with notes of citrus, pine and warm spice. As it develops its next winning strain, 7ACRES continues to prioritize subjective quality. In the Canadian cannabis market, this approach has established 7ACRES as a well-known premium brand that commands premium pricing coast-to-coast.

In addition to 7ACRES, Supreme Cannabis has built a diversified portfolio of focused consumer-driven brands:

  • Sugarleaf by 7AC – this new brand widens Supreme Cannabis’ product offerings and targets consumers who are looking for more refined, milder consumption experience as they discover their own cannabis taste preferences and desires. Product formats under this brand are focused on offering consumers elegant and convenient cannabis experiences.
  • Blissco — dedicated to providing wellness focused consumers with premium cannabis products, education, and outstanding customer care. Blissco is focused on bringing its collection of premium whole-flower CBD oils to market.
  • Truverra — focused on being a global leader in the development, production and marketing of hemp and cannabis-derived medicinal products with clinically proven efficacy. With over 25 SKUs sold online in the UK and Europe, Truverra is ideally positioned to address emerging international cannabis opportunities.
  • Khalifa Kush Enterprises — formed through a prestigious international partnership with Khalifa Kush Enterprises (KKE) Canada, the Canadian counterpart to the popular U.S. cannabis brand KKE formed by Wiz Khalifa. Together, Supreme Cannabis and KKE Canada are developing and launching a lineup of premium cannabis products, including a future line based on the well-known Khalifa Kush strain.

Each of Supreme Cannabs’ brands and partnerships have been strategically identified and designed to support the company’s mission to enhance the lives of consumers through positive cannabis experiences. Equally important to delivering desirable consumer experiences is the infrastructure supporting the company’s brands and products. From seed to sale, supreme cannabis continues to build an impressive group of operating assets that serve key functions throughout the value chain:

  • Cultivation – for starters, there is Supreme Cannabis’ foundational flagship asset, its 440,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario. With over 600 employees, 24 grow rooms, and best-in-class processing equipment and procedures, this facility is expected to reach an annual production capacity of 50,000 kilograms in the near-term. In this purpose-built facility, the company grows small-batch high-quality cannabis from 10,000-square-foot grow rooms and completes a proprietary hang-dry for up to two weeks.
  • Extraction – with the acquisition of Blissco in fiscal 2019, in addition to the Blissco wellness brand, Supreme Cannabis gained a 12,000-square-foot dedicated extraction facility in Langley, BC. This facility conducts both C02 and ethanol extraction and with the recent receipt of its oil sales license from Health Canada, it now produces Blissco branded CBD oils and expects to fill vaporizer pods for a partnership between the company’s 7ACRES brand and Pax Labs.
  • Manufacturing – most recently, the company announced its 107,000-square-foot processing, packaging and manufacturing facility in Kitchener, naming the facility Supreme Cannabis Kitchener. In Q4 FY2020, the company expects to begin whole flower packaging and pre-roll manufacturing for Supreme Cannabis brands at the Kitchener Facility. In the long-term, in additional to processing its own inputs, Supreme Cannabis intends generate incremental revenue by packaging, distributing and branding third-party cannabis inputs from quality-focused cultivators.
  • R&D and Product Testing – In Q1 FY2020, Supreme Cannabis closed the acquisition of Truverra and acquired a 5,000-square-foot facility licensed under Canadian Clinical Cannabinoids Inc. in Scarborough, Ontario (“Supreme Cannabis Scarborough”). Supreme Cannabis Scarborough provides R&D space for the company to test new products and develop medicinal science intellectual property. In the near-term, with the legalization of 2.0 cannabis products, this centre for innovation will be testing and bringing concentrate products to market under the 7ACRES brand.

Supreme is committed to continue to identify new opportunities to grow and strengthen its impressive portfolio of operating assets and brands and scale its strong Canadian business globally.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX).

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) was highlighted today in a publication from Channelchek, examining how gene therapy is a biological product that mediates its effect by transcription and/or translation of transferred genetic material by integrating into the host genome. It is administered as nucleic acids, viruses, or genetically engineered microorganisms. In gene therapy, a normal gene is inserted into the genome, often via a viral vector, to replace an abnormal gene responsible for causing a certain disease.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) is a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.

Research and Development

Genprex holds a portfolio of 30 issued and two pending patents covering its technologies and targeted molecular therapies. The company’s research and development program is focused on identifying and developing leading-edge gene therapies that can be used alone or in combination with other therapies for treatment of cancer.

Genprex’s initial product candidate is Oncoprex™, an immunogene therapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Oncoprex works by interrupting cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis (or programmed cell death) in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.

Preclinical research is being conducted with the goal of developing Oncoprex to be administered with targeted therapies in other solid tumors, and with immunotherapies in NSCLC and other solid tumors. In addition, Genprex has conducted and plans to continue research into other tumor suppressor genes associated with chromosome 3p21.3, as well as other potential applications of the company’s immunogene therapy platform.

Clinical Trials

Genprex is currently conducting the second phase of a phase I/II clinical trial at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The company plans to expand its clinical program by adding a new clinical study evaluating Oncoprex™ in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor for treatment of Stage IV or recurrent NSCLC. In research presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., Genprex’s collaborators showed that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 checkpoint inhibition has a significantly greater anti-tumor effect in lung cancer than either agent alone. The research also shows that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 blockade has synergistic activity in upregulating natural killer (NK) cells, correlating with prolonged survival in mice.

TUSC2 (Tumor Suppressor Candidate 2) is a tumor suppressor gene that is absent or deficient in cancer cells of many different cancer types.

The Market

Genprex technologies seek to bridge a critical gap by combining with targeted therapies and immunotherapies to provide treatments to large patient populations who would otherwise not be candidates for those therapies or who have become resistant to them. Genprex technologies are being developed to overcome genomic limitations which are inherent in targeted therapies and immunotherapies in order to provide new treatment solutions to large cancer populations, such as those with lung cancer.

Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for about 85 percent of all lung cancers, according to the American Cancer Society (“ACS”). Despite radical advances in drug development and novel therapeutic standards, survival for late stage lung cancer has not improved significantly in the past 25 years.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF).

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. A wave of marijuana legalization has been sweeping across the U.S., and its genesis can be traced to Colorado and Washington approving marijuana legalization initiatives way back in 2012. In each biennial election that followed, additional states followed through with their own marijuana legalization initiatives, and experts believe 2020 will be a landmark year for marijuana.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), VIVO has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.

“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” VIVO CEO Barry Fishman said.

VIVO owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.

VIVO has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with VIVO’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.

This global growth potential is illustrated by VIVO’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting VIVO’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

VIVO’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with VIVO’s philosophy of quality and innovation.

VIVO’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.

Notably, VIVO also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.

With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, VIVO is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF), closed Friday's trading session at $0.158, off by 2.4089%, on 38,520 volume with 36 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 137,376 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.139899998/$0.930000007.

LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (OTC: LVVV)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (LVVV).

LiveWire Ergogenics (OTC: LVVV) expects to perform well during 2020 as industry analysts project the market for cannabis products will increase to $80 billion over the next decade, according to a recent AP article (http://cnw.fm/r01nN). To view the full article, visit http://cnw.fm/sbY1G.

LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (OTC: LVVV) is a forward-thinking company specializing in identifying and monetizing current and future trends in the health and wellness industry. The company recognizes significant potential in the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry and operates at the forefront for acquisition and management of licensed cannabis real estate locations and the research, development and commercialization of high-end products for distribution throughout California.

During the past two years, LiveWire has diligently researched, secured, designed and set up several fully compliant and permitted cannabis operations in locations in California, including a state-wide distribution license from the Bureau of Cannabis Control. The company is focused on acquiring compliant real estate properties for cannabis operations and entering into operation agreements and strategic alliances to build teams of carefully selected and vetted operators, horticulturists, extractors, distributors and establish research partnerships. Its current portfolio of cannabis operations consists of the following properties:

PODs and Distribution in Coachella, California

For the past year, LiveWire has operated high-tech, state-of-the-art production structures, or “PODs” for its cannabis nursery business. Coachella is also home to the company’s statewide distribution headquarters. Both entities operate under LiveWire’s majority owned subsidiary, GHC Ventures. The company is currently in the process to strategically centralize all operations at its recently acquired Paso Robles facility, Estrella Ranch.

Estrella Ranch in Paso Robles, California

Through its subsidiary, Estrella Ranch Partners LLC, LiveWire acquired a 265-acre historic ranch property in Paso Robles, Calif. Estrella Ranch has a longstanding history, once owned by George R. Hearst, the eldest grandson of the late William Randolph Hearst, developer of Hearst Communications, and is considered among the finest ranches in California and the gem of the California Central Coast. LiveWire is transforming this property into the world’s first “Estate-Grown Weedery” with plans to develop it into a vertically integrated, high-end cannabis facility and wellness retreat in California. The stunning property, located in the heart of the world renown California wine country, currently houses three spacious residences, storage areas, and elaborate equestrian facilities with four barns and numerous stables. LiveWire is designing a truly unique property that features indoor and outdoor cannabis operations, including large outdoor and indoor cannabis production. Long-range plans include adding teaching and luxury recreational facilities focused on providing a comprehensive and unique cannabis-related retreat experience.

 

The Paso Robles Nursery

LiveWire has begun the build-out and will soon begin production in its 22,000-square-foot secure indoor cannabis nursery facility in Paso Robles, Calif. The project includes the conversion of two existing buildings with sufficient power capacity and abundant water supply. Floor plans include more than 10,000 square feet of canopy devoted to “mother” plants and separate clone storage; additional space has been identified for flowering plants. Within the two buildings, the nursery also contains research and development areas, rooms for cannabis waste and storage, record keeping and staging space, security offices, a conference room and additional designated locations required for permit approval and compliance.

LiveWire has spent significant resources to research and maneuver a complex legal environment and confirm the economic and environmental feasibility of potential LiveWire cannabis operations in different locations throughout the state of California. All LiveWire operations comply with California state law and local ordinances. To fully capitalize on these highly valuable assets, LiveWire is seeking funding to accelerate the development of its business plan.

GHC Ventures Subsidiary

GHC Ventures, LiveWire’s Coachella-based distribution division, employs a consumer-driven market approach that provides retailers access to a wide range of new high-end cannabis products, all serviced through the licensed and reliable GHC supply chain and distribution network.

GHC Ventures’ distribution network is available exclusively to licensed manufacturers that pass LiveWire’s stringent legal and environmental qualification process. This enables LiveWire to provide a large and solidly structured legal distribution network for all qualifying third-party operators in California. LiveWire is actively seeking to work with licensed operators who are enthusiastic and qualified to ensure the delivery of high-caliber and legal cannabis products for the fast-growing California medical and recreational cannabis markets.

Research Partnerships

LiveWire has established two independent research teams with world-renowned experts in their respective fields to pursue application of cannabis derivatives to specific targeted medical ailments. The company is also establishing research partnerships to explore the application of cannabinoid-based products to target specific ailments or conditions with large “sufferer” populations for both human and veterinarian applications. Possible applications may include dosing verification of zero-pesticide products for quality brands via its 7X Pure Cannabis Dosing and Verification System.

LiveWire has also engaged a highly qualified research team and advisory board to explore the opportunities in the unexplored yet highly valued equine space. The company has entered into consulting and/or advisory board agreements with high-caliber individuals from the medical and international-performance equine sector and is currently exploring strategic relationships with the veterinary departments of leading local and domestic universities and medical facilities.

7X Pure™ Dosing and Verification System

LiveWire Ergogenics is developing its “7X Pure Compliance and Dosage Verification System” intended to provide third-party verification of cannabis material origin, potency, purity, dosage and labeling, securing each product with a digital identity and clearly identifiable chain of custody.

The 7X Pure system will be completely secure, transparent and verifiable, protecting the confidentiality of growers’ and manufacturers’ intellectual property while providing retailers, consumers, government officials and others verification that the growers’ and manufacturers’ claims are true.

The system is designed as a parallel service to the seed-to-sale data provided by marijuana tracking software, will help growers and manufacturers meet increasing compliance requirements related to logistics, quality and transparency. It will also provide a high level of assurance to everyone from end users to municipalities.

Acquisitions & Operations

To maximize the utilization of its fully compliant locations and the licenses granted throughout California, LiveWire has begun and continues to pursue acquisitions of and/or strategic alliances with qualified cannabis companies and consultants. LiveWire will apply a strict regimen to the acquisition of operators, carefully utilizing its experience and legal standing in the California cannabis market for the selection of qualified operators.

Market Opportunity

Legal marijuana is the fastest-growing industry in the United States. Twenty-nine states have already legalized medical marijuana, eight states have approved it for recreational use, and more are following suit. Once the trend toward legalization expands to all 50 states, marijuana could become larger than the organic food industry, according to a new report obtained by The Huffington Post.

The U.S. marijuana industry is forecast to generate annual revenues ranging from $17 billion to $35 billion by 2021. The combined legal medical and recreational market has grown by roughly 30 percent, reaching $6 billion during 2017, according to The Marijuana Business Factbook. The same study projects the market will increase 300 percent to top $17 billion by 2021. During 2017 recreational sales grew by 80 percent, reaching $1.8 billion, not yet accounting for sales of the biggest revenue producer, California, which will only commence with recreational sales in 2018.

Business Model

LiveWire’s diligent approach to the cannabis sector is based on extensive environmental and legal research to predetermine the feasibility of the locations it selects for operations. The company pursues a carefully selected approach of acquiring, licensing and managing self-contained and permitted real estate properties for the development and distribution of its products and leasing to third party operators. LiveWire avoids the complications and high start-up cost of the typical large “growing” operations, instead focusing on becoming the market leader in research, cloning and verification, producing and distributing high quality brands.

Management Team

LiveWire’s team of experienced corporate managers and innovators are leading the company’s plans to capture increasing market share from different and often underserved market sectors in the cannabis industry. LiveWire intends to utilize its team’s experience to accelerate the development and/or acquisition of new properties, product offerings, and companies.

Bill Hodson, CEO & Chairman of the Board
Bill Hodson is responsible for the strategic direction of the firm’s development, branding, sales and marketing strategies.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO).

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.

The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.

Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”

Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.

The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.

Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.

This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.

The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed Friday's trading session at $1.013, up 6.6316%, on 5,173 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 12,523 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.600600004/$4.0300002.
