Golden Arrow Resources Corp. (GARWF)
Money and Markets and FutureMoneyTrends reported earlier on Golden Arrow Resources Corp. (GARWF), and we also highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Golden Arrow Resources Corp. is an explorer and prospect generator. The Company’s focus is on identifying, acquiring, and advancing precious and base metal discoveries with the objective of defining first-class deposits. Its main emphasis is on advancing its flagship Chinchillas Silver Project in Jujuy Province, Argentina. Golden Arrow Resources is a member of the Grosso Group; a management company specializing in resource exploration. Golden Arrow Resources has exploration offices in Ciudad de Mendoza, Argentina.
The Company’s other Argentina projects include the Antofalla Silver-Gold-Base Metal Project in Catamarca Province; and the Don Bosco Copper-Gold Project and the Caballos Copper-Gold Project, both in La Rioja Province.
Additionally, projects include the Mogote Copper-Gold Project; the Pescado Gold Project; and the Frontera District - Potrerillos Gold-Silver Project. All of these projects are in San Juan Province.
The Chinchillas Silver deposit will be developed into a satellite open-pit mine. The Chinchillas Silver Project features low capex (capital expenditure) and fast-tracked development utilizing infrastructure from the Pirquitas mine. It has a positive pre-feasibility study with strong economics and immediate production income from the Pirquitas mine operation.
Golden Arrow Resources formed a Joint Venture (JV) with Silver Standard Resources, Inc. announced on May 31, 2017. This JV is called Puna Operations, Inc. (POI). It was created to hold the Chinchillas project and the Pirquitas project, which consists of the San Miguel open pit mine that ended mining operations in January 2017 (the Pirquitas Pit), and the associated mineral processing facilities and tailings facility (the Pirquitas Operation) in Argentina. POI is 75 percent owned and operated by Silver Standard, and owned 25 percent by Golden Arrow Resources.
Puna Operations has received approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) that allows for the exploitation of the Chinchillas silver lead zinc deposit in Jujuy Province, Argentina. This paves the way for expected delivery of first ore from Chinchillas to the Pirquitas mill in the second half of this year, eventually reaching planned life of mine annual average production of 8.4M ounces silver equivalent.
Golden Arrow Resources has also formed a 100 percent owned subsidiary named “New Golden Explorations, Inc.” This subsidiary will seek a listing on the stock exchange to access funding for future exploration. Golden Arrow’s intention is to initially give up 40 percent and retain a 60 percent carried interest on new discovery values.
At present, New Golden Explorations is exploring. It plans on drilling three very advanced prospects to realize new discoveries. Exploration restarted on all the projects on January 7, 2018. This created a second value stream for shareholders of Golden Arrow.
Recently, Golden Arrow Resources announced that it started the first diamond drill program at the Antofalla silver-gold-base metal project in Catamarca Province, Argentina. The program is planned to include up to 3,000 meters of drilling on numerous targets, which were delineated in the 2017 surface exploration and trenching programs.

InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a fully integrated, cannabinoid-based biopharmaceutical company. It takes advantage of its proprietary bioinformatics and biosynthesis platform technologies to develop novel therapeutics for the treatment of diseases with high unmet medical needs. The Company previously went by the name Cannabis Technologies, Inc. It changed its name to InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in October of 2014. InMed has its corporate headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
A preclinical stage biopharmaceutical business, InMed Pharmaceuticals specializes in the research and development (R&D) of novel, cannabinoid-based prescription drug therapies employing novel drug delivery systems. The Company conducts research, discovery, preclinical, regulatory, manufacturing and commercial development activities for its product candidates.
InMed Pharmaceuticals is presently developing pre-clinical product candidates. These comprise INM-750 for the treatment of Epidermolysis bullosa; INM-085 for the treatment of glaucoma; and INM-405 for the treatment of pain.
The Company’s lead product, INM-750 has numerous mechanisms-of-action in the skin to deliver symptomatic relief. These include accelerated wound healing, pain reduction, itch reduction, inflammation reduction, and also antimicrobial activity.
InMed’s INM-085 has a proprietary deliver system. INM-085 uses a one x per day hydrogel formulation. This is to address the major issues of non-compliance (dosing frequency, side effects and adherence). The Company’s INM-405 is centered on local administration for Peripheral Pain Management. INM-405 for Pain is targeting topical administration.
In March, InMed Pharmaceuticals announced the publication of a peer-reviewed article in Drug Delivery and Translational Research.

The article was co-authored by Dr. Sazzad Hossain, InMed Pharmaceuticals’ Chief Scientific Officer.
The Company originally announced completion of this study in October of last year. These proprietary data support what InMed believes to be a first-in-class nanoparticle-hydrogel formulation for cannabinoid delivery to the eye, resulting in enhanced drug uptake through the cornea and lens. The patent family for this discovery is now at the provisional stage. It will be converted to a PCT filing during this year.
InMed Pharmaceuticals is using its proprietary bioinformatics assessment tool to identify bioactive compounds in the cannabis plant, which have the potential to have physiological impacts on specific diseases. The objective is to identify new drug candidates that optimize therapeutic benefit while limiting adverse effects.

(NNOMF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Nano One Materials Corp. is developing patented technology for the low-cost production of high-performance battery materials used in electric vehicles, energy storage and consumer electronics. The Company’s mission is to establish its patented technology as a leading platform for the worldwide production of a new generation of nanostructured composite materials. Nano One Materials has its head office, laboratory, and pilot facility in Burnaby, British Columbia. The Company also has an office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The processing technology addresses fundamental supply chain constraints through enabling broader raw materials specifications for use in lithium ion batteries. The process can be configured for a range of diverse nanostructured materials. In addition, it has the flexibility to shift with developing and future battery market trends and a varied range of other growth opportunities. Nano One Materials has 2 U.S. patents granted and numerous more pending in the U.S. and foreign jurisdictions.
The novel three-stage process uses equipment common to industry. The Company has constructed a pilot plant to demonstrate high volume production and to optimize its technology across a range of materials.
The core technology assembles low-cost raw materials in solution (including lithium, cobalt, magnesium) at high rates of production, before industrial driers and kilns complete the reaction. The three-stage process can produce many types of ceramic powders. It is already being engineered, with industrial partners NORAM and BC Research, for high volume production and fast commercialization.
At present, Nano One Materials has active contribution agreements with the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), Sustainable Development Technology Canada, and the Automotive Supplier Innovation Program – all programs of the Government of Canada. Collectively, these funding sources are projected to extend the Company’s operating capital into Q1 2020.
In August, Mr. Dan Blondal, Nano One Materials’ Chief Executive Officer announced the launch of a project centered on improving the durability of lithium ion cathode materials with the support of the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP). NRC IRAP will support the Company’s project to develop Coatings for High Durability Lithium ion Battery Cathodes. NRC IRAP will contribute up to $349,000 in non-dilutive and non-repayable funds between August 1, 2018 and May 31, 2020.
Mr. Blondal previously announced that its Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cathode material, and the cost of making it, are outperforming international benchmarks and could be a disruptive force in the lithium ion battery market space. He said, “Major cathode producers have begun evaluating our LFP and initial results are consistent with the excellent battery performance we’ve been measuring in our lab. The preliminary economic modeling is also very compelling with LFP production costs conservatively estimated at 10 to 30 percent below industry standards.”
LFP is the cobalt-free, low cost, high durability, as well as safest cathode material of choice for lithium ion batteries. It is used in e-buses, e-bikes, power tools and grid storage systems for renewable energy. Presently, LFP is produced through either hydrothermal or solid-state methods.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) through its subsidiaries specializes in assisting clients who are cannabis farmers and manufacturers get recognized by end consumers who in turn purchase their products. TransCanna offers or will be offering services to support almost every aspect of the cannabis-related eco-system; from branding and design, to transportation and distribution, to marketing and sales.
California’s legalized adult-use recreational marijuana market opened for business January 1, 2018. The state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control is responsible for regulating all commercial activities in the state including cultivation, distribution and transportation. Moving cannabis products in the California marketplace is extremely challenging due to municipal and state laws and regulations, which can differ among cities and counties. Since cannabis remains illegal under federal law, Department of Transportation regulated companies are barred from participating in the market, which means companies looking to excel in the sector must hold a state-issued distributor license from the Bureau of Cannabis Control.
TransCanna has already entered into an Intellectual Property Rights and Royalty Agreement for the Track & Trace software platform required by the state of California. TCM Distribution, the operating company managed by TransCanna, has received a transportation and distribution permit from the city of Adelanto and a temporary transportation and distribution permit from the state of California. TransCanna has also executed a land lease to build a 10,000-square-foot transportation and distribution facility in Adelanto.
TransCanna is strategically creating a distribution network throughout California that places its facilities no further than a three-hour drive from most any client. The company is in the process of leasing or purchasing properly licensed and permitted warehouses strategically located throughout California along with new secure trucks, sprinter vans and/or armored vehicles.
TransCanna plans to create its own portfolio of branded products for the cannabis and hemp sectors. The company’s management team intends to translate the skills, knowledge and experience gained from a combined 60 years of branding and marketing experience in the music, professional sports and alcohol industries into TransCanna and the cannabis industry.
As part of the “TransCanna Way,” the company intends to manage most aspects of the supply chain from upper end procurement, branding, transportation and distribution, to marketing and sales.
Leading TransCanna as its CEO and chairman is James Pakulis, who has three decades of experience working with public and private entrepreneurial companies in a variety of emerging and high-growth sectors. He is formerly the president and a director of Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. (CSE: LDS) (OTCQB: LDSYF), a vertically integrated cannabis-related entity operating in California. Pakulis was chairman and CEO of General Cannabis Inc. which from 2010 to 2012 owned WeedMaps.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Nicotine LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX), has entered into a definitive agreement with Altria Group Inc. (NYSE: MO) to fund the research & development of Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECH™ technology. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing the development and out-licensing of LXRP’s disruptive delivery technology that promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and quicker onset of lipophilic active molecules. To view the full publication, titled “Definitive Agreement Marks Milestone for Alternative Nicotine Delivery Options,” visit: http://nnw.fm/xbD2Z.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including nicotine and cannabinoids. To achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset, consumers traditionally defaulted to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering these substances through a patented process within edible food products, thus eliminating all the harmful health consequences of smoking.
Lexaria’s technology is unique in that it takes advantage of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) food ingredients processed with its patented DehydraTECHTM technology to improve taste, remove odor, and decrease the time to onset of bitter-tasting drugs. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise and has existing cannabinoid licensing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the United States, and internationally. Lexaria has entered into a R&D partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within popular foods such as coffee, tea, and supplements. These brands include ViPova™ and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Lexaria has conducted multiple rounds of studies including in vivo and human clinical. In absorption studies conducted on rats, for example, Lexaria detected nicotine in the animal’s bloodstream just two minutes after it entered the stomach. In a randomized, double blinded human clinical study, cannabidiol (CBD) was measure in the human bloodstream at a 317% higher rate 30 minutes after swallowing a capsule processed with DehydraTECH than a non-enhanced capsule of equal strength.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D have helped support B2B relationships with Fortune 500 companies. Lexaria has four distinct subsidiaries that focus on different market sectors: Hemp/CBD; Pharmaceutical; Cannabis; and Nicotine.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong and growing intellectual property portfolio. As of the end of 2018, the company’s patent portfolio includes 53 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world; and 10 patents granted to date. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the U.S. and internationally in 2019 and beyond. Some of its more recent areas of investigation have included human hormones and erectile dysfunction substances, among others.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third-partners and has signed royalty deals with start-up companies as well as with a Fortune 100. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has contributed to several multi-hundred million-dollar valuations over the course of his career. He is supported by a growing team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.59, up 7.43%, on 694,314 volume with 675 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 188,319 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

Cyberfort Software, Inc. (CYBF)
At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (Jan 8-11, 2019) in Las Vegas, the cybersecurity focus appeared to be on the Internet of Things (IoT). The proliferation of digital devices such as smart watches and home sensors connected to the internet has made the “threat landscape exponentially increase”, posing a headache for cybersecurity professionals (http://nnw.fm/JBo1p). Nevertheless, many consumers are unperturbed. A study conducted by McAfee, the computer security company, found that “58% of 2,000 consumers surveyed said they don't believe that they are responsible for ensuring their personal devices are secure.” Maybe an introduction to the innovative products from Cyberfort Software, Inc. (OTC: CYBF) that incorporate Content Filtering and Ad-Blocking may change minds.
Cyberfort Software, Inc. (CYBF) is a cybersecurity technology company specializing in the acquisition and development of security software, content filtering, and ad blocking technology. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Cyberfort Software is actively dealing with various cyber threats through the development of innovative protection technologies designed for mobile, personal and business tech devices across multiple platforms.
Committed to the idea that everyone – from individuals to global corporations – should be able to enjoy a digital future free of malicious attacks robbing them of privacy and security, Cyberfort is working to strengthen its portfolio of cybersecurity IPs and stay one step ahead of cyberthreats. The growing plethora of tech devices enveloping everyday life opens the door to increasing cyberattacks through a stunning array of sophisticated cyberthreats. Protecting organizations and individuals with proactive security postures and protective measures is a key component of Cyberfort’s strategy to develop cybersecurity solutions that are smart, simple and efficient.
The company’s 2016 purchase of Vivio, a provider of pioneering AI content filtering and software protection, underscores Cyberfort’s commitment to cybersecurity. Vivio, an iOS 10 ad blocking app, currently serves over 10,000 unique users across iPhone, iPad and Mac. Vivio makes web browsing better, faster and more satisfying by blocking ads and reducing data usage, which also helps save battery life. Continuous ad blocking rule updates are delivered via an Intellectual Property Cloud-based autonomous engine with ad blocking tracker and malware detection filters.
Cyberfort recently signed a letter of intent to acquire Just Content Software which includes the Just Content app, software and underlying source code. Just Content is an efficacious and multi-functional ad blocking app that safeguards families and businesses with proprietary “Home Safe Filter” and “Business Filter” products. The Just Content app is available on iTunes and protects against unsafe links, adult content, phishing sites and inflammatory hate speech found on the internet, among other potential backdoor attacks and cyberthreats. A due diligence review is underway and a final determination regarding this acquisition is anticipated within weeks.
“Cyberfort aims to become a leader in developing cutting edge ad-blocking protective software that keeps the internet safe for families and business, which in our highly technological and immediate information-access society is a significant concern. Acquiring Just Content furthers our commitment to provide the best and most effective ad-blocking software in the marketplace,” says Cyberfort CEO Daniel Cattlin.
Favorable government regulations promoting tightened web security is a major factor driving adoption of web content filtering solution along with the public’s growing desire to better manage network bandwidth consumption and protect their online security and privacy. Cyberfort’s objective is to protect the data and integrity of personal and business computing assets and defend those assets against any threat or attack. The company’s software also offers symbiotic ad-blocking capabilities to complement its cyber defense effectiveness.
As Cyberfort continues to innovate, the Vivio team intends to leverage the current user base as a sandbox to test and optimize future incremental developments targeting an enterprise suite of tools that can be integrated into sector specific areas of growth. Key areas of focus include mobile device management, bring your own device (“BYOD”), mobile app management and secure mobile browser.
The Cyberfort leadership team is headlined by Cattlin, who offers a new age perspective to the business with expertise in project and asset management and a background in corporate finance. Cattlin brings both the operational and financial understanding to take companies from start-up and early development to expansion and capital growth within a public environment.
Chief Technology Officer Tomas Mistrik helped his team deliver a variety of technological products including the Vivio ad-blocking app for iOS 10 and the Silicon Valley-based Synergykit platform for mobile developers.
Technology Development Manager Krishna Kumar brings more than 10 years of experience in the Information Technology industry where he provided powerful security and ad-blocking measures for companies such as CSC and PayPal India.
Senior Advisor Harish Doddala brings nine years of product management and software engineering experience, delivering results for Cisco, VMware, Oracle, IBM and Siemens.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
CannabisNewsWire ("CNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING), a client of CNW focused on acquiring companies that will benefit from the injection of growth capital and technology integration. To view the full publication, titled “New Laws Set Up US Cannabis Industry for Explosive Growth,” visit: http://cnw.fm/KtA55. Also today, the company announced that its subsidiary, SingleSeed, has added a new vertical to its robust line up in the launch of a new CBD product for dogs, available on SingleSeed.com. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/TxH2a.
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 the day's trading session at $0.0199, up 3.11%, on 2,607,867 volume with 177 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,414,862 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0106/$0.09.

Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP)
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (OTCMKTS: DVLP) (“DVLP” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the Cannabis, Hemp, and CBD marketplace, is excited to announce the broad nationwide expansion of its Where’s Weed segment, and its primary assets, the Where’s Weed Mobile App and WheresWeed.com, representing an online and mobile cannabis services hub that focuses on fast, secure, and efficient discovery, purchasing, and delivery scheduling of cannabis in both recreational and medical markets in the United States and Canada.
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), an emerging leader in ancillary software and the cannabidiol (CBD) products marketplace, provides business services and/or products supporting the cannabis industry including an online retail business for CBD, hemp oil and health/wellness related products.
Global acceptance of cannabis and related CBD products continues to increase as North America advances toward favorable legislation. Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, and the United States has 30 states and the District of Columbia allowing either recreational or medical cannabis, or both. Voters in four additional U.S. states will consider marijuana initiatives on the November 2018 ballot. The global legal cannabis market is projected to reach USD$146 billion by the end of 2025, with a greater acceptance of medical cannabis products as a driving factor, according to Grand View Research.
DVLP is taking advantage of consumer demand for CBD products through its wholly owned Pura Vida Vitamins, LLC subsidiary, which recently launched a direct-to-consumer website (www.PuraVidaVitamins.com) and commenced sales of Pura Vida branded products. Pura Vida merchandise includes hemp and CBD-related products and other products focusing on health and lifestyle which are available through established wholesale and distribution channels. In addition, a line of CBD pet supplements and other products are in development.
DVLP recently acquired “Where’s Weed” (Layer Six Media LLC DBA “Where’s Weed”) and its primary asset, WheresWeed.com. Where’s Weed is an American cannabis technology company known for connecting medical and recreational cannabis users with trusted local marijuana businesses in their communities. As a rapidly growing community-based online resource for cannabis consumers with a host of user-friendly services, Where’s Weed offers a sophisticated mobile app with strong traction and powerful growth potential as the North American legal cannabis market continues to expand exponentially.
WheresWeed.com has a large and expanding reach with nearly 3 million pageviews per month. In addition, the WheresWeed mobile app, available in both iOS and Android, has been downloaded over 80,000 times, proving to be complementary to DVLP’s objective to capitalize on the massive growth curve in the marijuana space.
“The huge flood of new growers and producers is likely to create oversupply in the near term, narrowing margins for major producers,” says DVLP CEO Stavros Triant. “However, this should actually increase the net number of new consumers in the marketplace, further reinforcing the enormous growth potential for hub service providers in the space that are situated on high-traffic internet real estate, which is exactly how we view the Where’s Weed property.”
The company’s move into the lucrative C-store snack market was solidified with a material purchase order for CBD oils from a major distributor specializing in the snack foods and accessories to the convenience store and gas station market. The order represents significant progress as DVLP gears up its ready-made snack distribution strategy for its CBD products.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of our CBD product line with this distributor,” Triant states. “The C-Store strategy dovetails perfectly with our direct marketing strategy through our primary online retail channel, and we have indications from the distributor that, if this initial test order goes well, successive Purchase Orders could be significant and underpin strong sales growth in Q1 2019.”
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), closed the day's trading session at $0.02, up 0.25%, on 1,333,405 volume with 78 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 346,783 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.012/$0.14.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Rav Kumar, PhD as the Company's Chief Science Officer. Dr. Kumar will lead The Green Organic Dutchman's Science & Innovation Division and oversee all aspects of science-related initiatives including TGOD's science portfolio encompassing advanced and innovative global product lines for patients and consumers. Dr. Kumar will help drive innovation from concept to commercialization at the Company.
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.
Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.
Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.
TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.
Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.
Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.
TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.
Earth Science Tech’s products include CBD, a natural constituent of hemp oil derived from hemp stalk and seed. EST offers CBD in the form of vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, homeopathies, functional foods and other products delivered in such forms as capsules, tablets, soft gels, chewables, liquids, creams, sprays, powders and whole herbs. Earth Science products can be found at retail stores throughout the United States and are available for purchase through the internet.

United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM) (OTC: UBMCF) (FWB: 0UL)
United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM) (OTC: UBMCF) (FWB: 0UL) is a vanadium exploration company focused on becoming the first vanadium producer in North America. The company’s flagship project is the Wray Mesa Project, an exploration-stage vanadium property located in Montrose County, Colorado. The property consists of over 107 contiguous mining claims on about 3000 acres. United Battery Metals recently announced that it has tripled its vanadium rich land package in Colorado and Utah. The claims are located on land where both the surface and mineral ownership is held by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) of the U.S. Department of Interior. Valid unpatented mining claims grant the holder the right of mineral possession as allowed by the General Mining Law of 1872, subject to the various state and federal rules and regulations pertaining to mineral exploitation.
Global demand for vanadium as a strategic metal has exploded in recent years. Vanadium price surges have hit recent highs of approximately $22.63 per pound from about $9 per pound last year.? As a result, mining companies are returning to exploration efforts for vanadium.
The Wray Mesa Project area is part of the La Sal Creek District, which has a long history of exploration and production efforts with records showing drill exploration likely started there in the late 1940s with geologists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Atomic Energy Commission, then continued from the 1960s through the 1980s with private sector interests involved. Based on historical records, the Wray Mesa Project appears to have very good to excellent potential with an inferred resource of 500,000 pounds of uranium- and a current estimated vanadium resource of 2,640,000 pounds as per the last 43-101 prepared in 2013 by Anthony Adkins who is a qualified geologist.
The world’s vanadium demand is set to increase significantly as China implements tighter controls over this critical element as it is used in infrastructure to strengthen steel. With trade war tensions mounting, the U.S. will likely be in dire need of a domestic supply of vanadium for use in steel plants opening nationwide and grid power storage. In fact, the White House has deemed vanadium one of 35 critical elements to United States national and economic security (USGS). US Steel announced additional plants opening nationwide, and this bull market in domestic steel production is likely to increase the demand for a domestic source of vanadium as China has begun restricting vanadium exports to the U.S. amid mounting tensions between the two countries over tariffs and certain critical elements such vanadium.
UBM utilized resource estimation software to model the mineralization detected in a number of the 715 historical and 24 recent drill holes within the project area. Results of the model run, minus the estimated effects of the historic mining, identify an indicated resource of approximately 85,500 short tons at an average grade of 0.16% eU308 for a total of 271,000 pounds of contained uranium. Inferred resources total 57,400 short tons at an average grade of 0.15% of eU308 for a total of about 169,000 pounds of contained uranium. The vanadium resource for the two categories, based on a conservative V:U ratio of 6:1, is 1,626,000 (O.95% average grade) and 1,014,000 (0.88% average grade) pounds, respectively.
Vanadium has multiple uses in modern society including being used in vanadium redox flow batteries (“VRFBs”), car charging stations, nuclear power plants and in steel manufacturing. An article in Mining.com notes that vanadium pentoxide (V2O5), which is used in the production of VRFBs used in energy storage systems, breached US$20 a pound in September 2018 for the first time since 2005, a four-fold increase from the start of 2017.
California recently announced that all homes and mid rises must install solar panels by 2020. Vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs) are by far the most superior batteries for large scale energy storage systems and the reason why the Vanadium Redox Flow batteries will dwarf the lithium battery demand. California was the first to announce this green initiative and many experts expect that the revolution will be implemented nationwide in the near future.
Vanadium is one of the 35 minerals deemed critical to the national security and economy of the United States. Among the important uses of vanadium are the following:
- Fast-charging VRFBs have unique characteristics making them especially attractive when compared to conventional batteries. VRFBs can operate at any temperature, be charged and discharged at the same time, have greater design flexibility and a 25-plus year lifecycle. VRFB’s promise to be a major player in the green energy storage revolution because they are 100 percent reusable, recyclable, are nonflammable, compact, able to provide large grid energy storage, can be fully contained and are seen as a viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries.
- VRFBs can be used in a variety of energy storage applications including microgrids, during peak shaving periods and for load leveling, as an uninterruptible power supply, for wind and solar farms, and as an off-grid power supply.
- Approximately 85 percent of vanadium produced is used as ferrovanadium or as an additive to strengthen and harden steel used for applications in axles, crankshafts, gears, surgical instruments and tools, knives, jet engines, high-speed airframes, dental implants, and in seamless tubing for the aerospace, defense and bicycle industries.
- Vanadium alloys are used in nuclear reactors because of the metal’s low neutron-absorbing properties.
The management team at United Battery Metals Corp. includes president, CEO and Director Matthew Rhoades, the former State Geologist for New Mexico and an accomplished professional geologist with direct working experience in exploration and development projects at numerous deposits and mines throughout the American West, Canada, Mexico and South America. He is joined by George Sharpe, a qualified Mineral Exploration Geoscientist, QP, MCIM and CGT, with over 23 years of global mineral exploration in iron coal, gold, base metals, rare earths, uranium, PGE’s, diamonds, iron and industrial minerals.
United Battery Metals Corp. (UBMCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0653, up 6.18%, on 331,959 volume with 49 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 271,128 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.059/$1.58.

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF)
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with operations in San Diego, Calif., Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF) is a premium food and beverage company that focuses on whole plant nutrition and natural ingredients that help best maintain overall health and balance in the human body. The company infuses active hemp into a variety of premium foods, beverages and supplements and is poised for global distribution. Phivida is guided by a team of Fortune 500-caliber executives focused on a new strategic portfolio of products and brands, comprehensive consumer research, new product and brand development, improved visual identity and packaging design, and a strong distribution strategy.
The company’s mission is to become a leader in whole plant solutions by providing holistic remedies for a more natural alternative to pharmaceuticals and by guiding people toward a healthy lifestyle. Phivida embraces and celebrates a return to organic, natural, plant-based foods and beverages and a focus on holistic health and wellness.
Publicly traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE: VIDA) and the OTCQX Best Market in the U.S. (OTC: PHVAF), the company’s strong balance sheet carries CAD$13 million with no debt or loans with ~60 million shares outstanding, and the company is now well-capitalized to fund major mainstream distribution with a solid structure that is poised for long-term growth.
Phivida’s management team includes president and CEO Jim Bailey, former president of Red Bull Canada and global chief marketing officer for Merrell Outdoors; Chief Marketing Officer Michael Cornwell, former chief marketing officer for Samsung New Zealand and the former director of marketing for Red Bull Canada; and Doug Campbell, former director of sales for Red Bull North America, who, as Phivida’s chief commercial officer, is tasked with driving new sales revenue growth.
Using encapsulation technology, Phivida uses full spectrum CBD-hemp oil (rich in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids) converted into a water-soluble delivery format, which enhances delivery and absorption of the cannabinoids into the human body – up to an estimated tenfold.
The whole plant hemp extract is infused into functional beverages, food and supplements to target a range of health and wellness conditions. Phivida strives to lead the industry in product quality through high-quality ingredients and best-in-class testing. The Company has partnered with Flora Labs to test and ensure consistency and potency of all products. Flora Labs is a world-class testing lab with stringent QA and QC quality assessment protocols and will provide Phivida with ongoing impartial quality testing.
Federally legal under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD from hemp oil is a rapid growth market across the U.S. When derived from marijuana, CBD remains a schedule 1 controlled substance, giving hemp-derived CBD oil-infused products a competitive advantage on regulations. On June 28, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (i.e. the “Farm Bill), lifting the U.S. Industrial Hemp laws to an agricultural commodity status and effectively removing hemp from the controlled substance list.
Earlier this year, another milestone court ruling also provided significant regulatory support for the U.S. CBD-hemp sector. In February 2018, the Supreme Court presided over the HIA (Hemp Industry Association) vs. DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in a class-action suit concerning the issue of CBD extracted from hemp and the legality of industrial hemp. In the final ruling, the Supreme Court unequivocally determined that hemp (and its derivatives), when produced domestically under the Farm Bill, are not a controlled substance.
The Supreme Court ruling also found the Farm Bill (as it relates to hemp) “pre-empts” the Controlled Substances Act. Congress has since exempted Farm Bill hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), giving the Farm Bill primary jurisdiction over the governance of the CBD-hemp oil industry in the U.S.
The DEA further conceded it does not “seek to control cannabinoids” and that only marijuana-derived cannabinoids are governed under the Controlled Substances Act. In May of 2018, the DEA issued a formal directive to all federal agencies (e.g., U.S. Customs and Border Patrol) stating that cannabinoids are not controlled substances unless derived from marijuana, and that the “mere presence of cannabinoids” in any product or derivative does not render it a controlled substance. The Supreme Court ruling also resulted in the mediation of a settlement in what is now the third successful HIA vs. DEA suit in over a decade.
In Canada, the Senate approval of Bill C-45 legalized the production, distribution and use of recreational cannabis, with edibles to be added in 2019. The bill officially became law as of Oct. 17, 2018, creating a legal framework for the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada including cannabinoid-infused beverages.
