Use claims include treating sleep apnea and preventing or rescuing drug-induced respiratory depression, and also for improving memory and cognition, treating schizophrenia and other central nervous system (CNS) indications.
The Company’s pharmaceutical candidates in development are derived from two platforms. One platform is the class of compounds called cannabinoids. This includes, in particular, Dronabinol. Dronabinol (D9-THC, D9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is an oral capsule drug product. Dronabinol (D9-THC) is a generic, orally active cannabinoid. It is undergoing testing for clinical efficacy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
RespireRx Pharmaceuticals (under a license agreement with the University of Illinois) has rights to patents claiming the use of cannabinoids for the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders. Two Phase 2 clinical trials have been completed. Both have demonstrated substantial reductions in sleep apnea produced by dronabinol.
Dronabinol is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for the treatment of anorexia in AIDS patients and nausea and vomiting in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy (Marinol®). It is a Schedule III drug available by prescription, with a low risk of addiction.
The other platform of medicines undergoing development by RespireRx is a class of proprietary compounds called ampakines.

biOasis Technologies, Inc. (BIOAF)
Zacks, OTC Markets Group, Venture Beat, PennyStocks24, Tailwinds Research Group, Midas Letter, Capital Cube, 4-Traders, Stockwatch, SmallCapFinancialWire, YCharts, and Uptick Newswire reported earlier on biOasis Technologies, Inc. (BIOAF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
biOasis Technologies, Inc. concentrates on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The delivery of therapeutics across the BBB represents the single greatest challenge in treating neurological disorders. The OTCQB-listed Company is developing and commercializing the xB3 platform, its proprietary blood-brain barrier delivery technology, to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases and disorders. A biopharmaceutical business, biOasis Technologies is based in Richmond, British Columbia.
The Company’s Transcend Platform is currently available to be licensed by biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies for the advancement of their neurotherapeutic programs. The Transcend Platform has realized a significant high level of success in dozens of studies at more than 20 third-party institutions and pharmaceutical companies. biOasis has attained full patent protection for its Transcend group of peptide carriers and linkers. The Transcend-peptide platform is presently referred to as the above-mentioned xB3 platform. It is part of the Company’s patented portfolio that is transforming therapeutic brain-drug delivery.
The Transcend Platform consists of a divers set of peptide carriers and linkers. These, together, provide transport solutions for an assortment of CNS therapeutics. These include monoclonal antibodies, enzymes, small molecules, and different kinds of gene therapies. Transcend is based on the naturally occurring human transport protein, melanotransferrin, also called MTf, CD228 and p97. MTf is found at low concentrations in the blood.
MTf is able to cross the BBB through a process named Receptor Mediated Transcytosis where MTf molecules attach to receptors on the cells of the BBB and is subsequently pulled through the cells and into the brain. With biOasis Technologies’ proprietary Transcend carrier, the MTf protein can be attached to therapeutics of different sizes and kinds.
biOasis Technologies and BioAgilytix have a strategic collaboration to partner on the development and validation of bioanalytical methods to support and advance the xB3 TM-001 program, BiOasis’ lead candidate to treat HER2+ brain cancer, to investigational new drug (IND) submission and into the clinic. BioAgilytix is a foremost provider of contract bioanalytical testing services with a specialization in large molecule bioanalysis.
This past November, biOasis Technologies announced data using its lead investigational candidate xB3-001 in an advanced positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging study in non-human primates suggest selective peripheral distribution. Additionally, this data indicates penetration of the lymphatic system with xB3-001.
In collaboration with Invicro LLC., whole-body distribution of xB3-001 was examined in the study employing advanced PET/CT imaging in non-human primates. Data from the study suggest a more selective peripheral distribution pattern for xB3-001 versus trastuzumab alone. Notably, the data also indicate that the xB3 platform has the potential to penetrate the lymphatic system as shown by the accumulation of xB3-001 in the cervical lymph nodes, which is not seen in trastuzumab alone.
This month, biOasis Technologies announced a joint research collaboration with a top pharmaceutical company. With this Agreement, biOasis will manufacture an antibody-peptide conjugate containing its xB3 peptide for in vivo measurement in the CNS, enabling direct evaluation of the xB3 platform’s delivery capabilities.

However, insufficient exploration and geological modeling has taken place to define a mineral resource. Centenera notes that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the delineation of a mineral resource.
Last year, Centenera Mining acquired Esperanza. It has an option to earn 100 percent interest for cash payments of US$2.3M over 6 years and the issuance of US$0.5M CT stock. The Esperanza Project is subject to a 2 percent Net Smelter Return (NSR) (right to buy 0.5 percent for US$1M cash).
The flagship Esperanza Cu-Au Project in San Juan Province has existing infrastructure nearby. The Project has a Copper-Gold Porphyry System. This year’s drill program is testing bulk tonnage potential. The goal is to drill, add value, and advance to joint venture (JV) or sale.
In June, Centenera Mining announced it received positive drill results from drill hole 18-ESP-027 at the Esperanza Copper-Gold Porphyry project. Drill hole 18-ESP-027 collared in mineralization and continued to drill mineralized rock to end of hole. Mineralization remains open at depth.
Highlights include 451m grading 0.30 percent copper equivalent, including 100m (10m to 110m) grading 0.42 percent copper equivalent. Furthermore, surface chip sampling along a new road cut situated to the south of drill hole 18-ESP-027 returned 82m grading 0.23 percent copper equivalent. This indicates that the mineralizing system continues at surface to the south, towards Target A, one of four priority drill targets at the Esperanza Copper-Gold Porphyry project.
Last month, Centenera Mining announced that it signed a definitive property option agreement for the Esperanza Copper-Gold Project comprising 32 mining claims in San Juan Province, Argentina. Centenera had earlier entered into a binding Letter of Intent (LOI) with an arm's length vendor, wherein the Company was granted the exclusive option to acquire a 100 percent interest in Esperanza.
Centenera Mining Corporation (CTMIF), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.0236, down 23.87%, on 13,000 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,942 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0081/$0.1684.
OceanaGold Corporation (OCANF)
TipRanks, InvestorsHub, Stockwatch, Dividend Investor, Stockhouse, WalletInvestor, OTC Markets, TradingView, SimVest, Stockscores, SmallCap Network, and Insider Monkey reported on OceanaGold Corporation (OCANF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OceanaGold Corporation is a mid-tier, high-margin, multinational gold producer. The Company has assets in the United States, the Philippines, and New Zealand. Its flagship asset is the Didipio gold-copper mine on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. In 2018, the Didipio underground is progressing to plan. OceanaGold is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. The Company’s Americas office is in Vancouver, British Columbia.
On the South Island of New Zealand, OceanaGold operates the largest gold mine in the country at the Macraes Goldfield, which comprises a series of open pit mines and the Frasers underground mine.
On the North Island of New Zealand, the Company operates the high-grade Waihi Gold Mine. It has commenced permitting of a 10-year mine life extension at Waihi.
OceanaGold operates the Haile Gold Mine in the United States. This is a top-tier, long-life, high-margin asset in South Carolina. In 2016, OceanaGold completed the construction of the Haile Gold Mine. Last year, the Company attained commercial production at Haile. This year, the Haile process plant expansion is underway.
OceanaGold also has a substantial pipeline of organic growth and exploration opportunities in the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions. This year, the Company is processing high grade ore from Coronation North.
OceanaGold has its Argentina Joint Ventures (JVs). It has the potential to earn-in up to 75 percent on each project in this fertile gold region.
Recently, OceanaGold announced the intersection of high-grade mineralization along two large veins (Martha and Empire) beneath the Martha Pit at Waihi in New Zealand. The results come from the latest round of drilling from two drill drives beneath the Martha pit. They form part of a more wide-ranging continuing exploration program, which includes surface and underground drilling.
Mr. Mick Wilkes, OceanaGold President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The latest drill results further demonstrates the significant mineralization that resides beneath the Martha Pit. These results are from a drill program that form only a subset of a much more extensive drill program along kilometers of combined strike and hundreds of meters of vertical vein extent. The exploration program is designed to unlock the million-ounce resource target at Waihi which we expect would sustain current mining operations out to 2030 at historical production levels."
In July, OceanaGold announced the intersection of more high-grade gold mineralization along the East Graben vein at its WKP prospect in New Zealand. The results come from the latest round of drilling. Continental began exploration of the WKP prospect in August 2017 with 1 - 2 diamond rigs drilling 8,005 meters in 17 holes to date. Since the November 2017 exploration update, 6,803 meters have been drilled at WKP centering on the potential of the East Graben Vein - one of three major low sulphidation epithermal gold-silver veins.
For the first half ended June 30, 2018, Continental Gold had Net Profit after tax of $89.1 million. This represents an increase of 45 percent versus the same period in 2017.
OceanaGold Corporation (OCANF), closed Tuesday's trading session at $3.42, up 2.70%, on 17,327 volume with 35 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 56,698 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.35/$3.74.

Listed on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB, Bravada Gold has its head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Bravada Gold explores for precious metals in well-established gold trends in one of the world's best gold jurisdictions. Currently, five of its Nevada properties are being funded by partners. In total this includes earn-in work expenditures of up to $6.5 million and payments to Bravada Gold of up to +$3.0 million in cash and shares.
Bravada Gold retains residual working or royalty interests. For 2017, the Company says that mine permitting continues on its Shoshone Pediment project. Bravada holds a royalty on eventual barite production.
Pertaining to its Wind Mountain project, Bravada Gold’s plan is to drill-test for high-grade “Hishikari-type” gold/silver vein mineralization beneath the existing disseminated resource at Wind Mountain. Regarding the SF property, the Company plans to drill-test for high-grade “Carlin-type” gold mineralization at the SF property.
Concerning the North Lone Mountain and South Lone Mountain projects, plans have not been finalized for Bravada’s two claim groups. However, Nevada Zinc continues to expand the footprint of zinc mineralization on its claims towards Bravada’s South Lone Mountain claims. Should Nevada Zinc complete the purchase of these claims, Bravada Gold will retain a royalty on base and precious metals.
In May of this year, Bravada Gold announced that it received notice that a third-phase drilling program is underway at its Baxter Low-sulfidation gold property in the Walker Lane Gold trend in Nevada. Kinross Gold U.S.A., Inc. plans to drill 8 to 12 reverse-circulation (R.C.) holes for roughly 2,600 meters. Kinross Gold U.S.A. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp.
The Baxter property comprises 240 unpatented lode claims (approximately 1,940 hectares) in the Walker Lane Gold trend of western Nevada.

Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how the Danish Ministry of Health has revealed that an executive order allowing local companies to export medical cannabis in bulk took effect on the first day of this year.

Headquartered in San Mateo, California, PLUS™ concentrates on producing edibles using extracts to ensure compliant, dosable and delicious products that provide a consistent cannabis experience.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
Mid-December 2018, cannabis-focused research and development company The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) announced the launch of a new informative website aimed at addressing the needs of both medical patients and recreational consumers.
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.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) this morning outlined plans to initiate preliminary metallurgical testing on a large lithium pegmatite sample to be obtained from the company’s 100-percent-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project in southeastern Manitoba. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/M67Mh.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.
QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.
The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.
North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.
The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.
QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens, and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.
The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2399, up 0.29%, on 11,689 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 66,977 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.9204.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) was highlighted today in a report by Investorideas.com, with the release of part one of a two-part series looking at the future of the CBD Pet Market and the companies looking to take a bite out of the growing global pet industry.
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 $0.02014, up 0.75%, on 2,984,753 volume with 197 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,055,112 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0106/$0.082.

Sunniva Inc. (CSE:SNN) (OTCQB:SNNVF), a North American provider of cannabis products and services, is pleased to announce a CAD $10.0 million non-brokered offering (the “Financing”) of convertible debentures (“Convertible Debentures”) to provide additional working capital in response to higher than anticipated near-term demand for Sunniva branded cannabis products which includes an additional USD $5.0 million in retail dispensary purchase orders.
Sunniva, Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTC: SNNVF) is a vertically integrated medical cannabis company operating in the world’s two largest cannabis markets – Canada and California – committed to delivering safe, consistent, high-quality products and services. Sunniva operates through its wholly owned subsidiaries: Sunniva Medical Inc., CP Logistics, LLC, Natural Health Service Ltd., and Full-Scale Distributors, LLC. Sunniva’s vision is to become the lowest cost, highest quality cannabis producer in the markets it serves by building large scale purpose-built cGMP-compliant greenhouses, offering best quality assurance with cannabis products free from pesticides, providing better patient and doctor access to cannabis education, and sourcing better therapeutic delivery devices.
The company is establishing sophisticated distribution channels, including Sunniva’s ownership of Natural Health Services cannabis clinics in Canada with over 95,000 active patients, to purchase the significant quantities of high quality Sunniva-branded and Sunniva private-labeled cannabis products.
Sunniva is an ancient English name which means, “Gift of the Sun.” Sunniva’s team of horticulturists, scientists and engineers is helping to set best practices for the industry, believing that sun-grown, solar-powered cultivation is the most sustainable and cost-effective way to grow high-quality, premium cannabis.
The Sunniva Family includes:
CP Logistics, LLC
Through its subsidiary, CP Logistics LLC, Sunniva is developing Sunniva Campus, a state-of-the-art, purpose-built greenhouse facility in Cathedral City, California. This modern purpose-built, agri-technology greenhouse will adhere to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations that assure proper design, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.
Phase 1 of the project includes a fully funded 325,000 square foot greenhouse capable of producing 60,000 kg per year of dry cannabis at capacity with operations commencing Q3 2018. Approximately 30 percent of initial total production will be converted into oils and extracts. Phase 2 is expected to increase the greenhouse by 165,000 square feet and grow production by about 40,000 kg per year.
These uniquely sealed greenhouses are designed to deploy custom, automation assembly line cultivation processes at a large scale. Energy consumption will be reduced while utilizing the energy of the sun and microclimatic controls to provide precise growing conditions. The greenhouse will recirculate air for more efficient climate control, and the company’s Integrated Pest Management System is designed to ensure every plant grown is certified clean and free of all contaminants and pesticides.
Sunniva Medical Inc.
Sunniva Medical Inc. is designing and preparing to break ground on the Sunniva Canada Campus encompassing 700,000 square feet of purpose-built cGMP greenhouse facilities in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. The total campus is expected to produce 100,000 kg of premium medical cannabis a year plus additional trim used for extraction.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN)
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) recently completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 4.4 million units at a price of C$0.50 per unit, for total gross proceeds of C$2.2 million. The funds are expected to help finance the company’s entry into California’s cannabis transportation and branding market.
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.

The company’s strategic advisors include individuals with extensive experience in branding, marketing, sales, distribution, production and supply chain management.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
CFN Media Group (“CFN Media”), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry, announces publication of an article discussing The Supreme Cannabis Co. (TSX: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1). Supreme is a licensed producer with an obsession with quality. Through its 7ACRES subsidiary, the company operates one of the most successful premium cannabis brands in the market with over 300,000 sq. ft. of grow space and rapidly growing revenue. Investors may want to take a closer look at the stock as it scales up in 2019 and beyond.
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. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”
Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.
In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.
“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”
The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.
Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.
To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF), closed the day's trading session at $1.2685, off by 2.42%, on 284,553 volume with 404 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 437,237 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.38.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to report drill results from its Iron Creek Cobalt Project in Idaho, USA, that extend mineralization at depth and continue to demonstrate thick mineralized areas between the two known zones as well as in the footwall and hangingwall of the current resource area.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.113, off by 5.36%, on 188,715 volume with 40 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 165,118 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.109/$1.019.
