HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI)

Simply Wall St, 4-Traders, Infront Analytics, Morningstar, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, BUYINS.NET, Stockhouse, Dividend Investor, and Wallet Investor reported earlier on HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company headquartered in Tampa, Florida. It discovers, develops, and plans to commercialize front-line therapeutics for patients with cancer. The Company is looking to repurpose the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved antifungal pharmaceutical itraconazole as a potential treatment for cancer. HedgePath Pharmaceuticals lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

HedgePath is the exclusive United States licensee of a patented formulation of itraconazole, called SUBA-Itraconazole. Clinical studies have shown it to have more bioavailability than generic itraconazole. The Hedgehog signaling pathway is a significant regulator of cellular processes in vertebrates. This includes cell differentiation, tissue polarity, as well as cell proliferation.

The Company believes (based on published research) that inhibiting the Hedgehog pathway could delay or possibly prevent the development of certain cancers in humans. Leveraging research undertaken by key investigators in the field, HedgePath’s plan is to explore the effectiveness of SUBA-Itraconazole as an anti-cancer agent and to pursue its potential commercialization.

The design of “SUBA technology” (which stands for “Super Bioavailability”) is to improve the bioavailability of orally administered drugs that are poorly soluble. SUBA-Itraconazole is a patented formulation developed by Mayne Pharma. It has improved absorption and substantially reduced variability in comparison to generic itraconazole.

In August of 2018, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed HedgePath’s present clinical and regulatory pathway related to the Company’s SUBA™-Itraconazole as a treatment for Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) in patients with Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome (BCCNS, or Gorlin Syndrome).

This past December, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals announce that it entered into a revised Supply and License Agreement (SLA) with its majority stockholder Mayne Pharma Ventures Pty Ltd (Mayne Pharma), an affiliate of Mayne Pharma Group Limited. With the new SLA, Mayne Pharma will assume control of the regulatory and clinical development program for SUBA®-Itraconazole for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome (SUBA-Itraconazole BCCNS) in expectation of conducting a worldwide Phase 3 pivotal clinical trial based on results attained in the Phase 2(b) trial conducted by HedgePath in the United States. Mayne Pharma will immediately assume responsibility for all future SUBA-Itraconazole BCCNS-related expenses.

Cell Source, Inc. (CLCS)

InvestorsHub and OTC Markets reported on Cell Source, Inc. (CLCS), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Cell Source, Inc. is a Biotechnology Company listed on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB. The Company concentrates on developing cell therapy treatments established on immunotherapy and regenerative medicine. Its principal product is the Veto-Cell immune system management technology. Cell Source has its headquarters in New York, New York.

Cell Source’s Veto-Cell immune system management technology is an immune tolerance biotechnology. It enables the selective blocking of immune responses. The Company’s Veto-Cell technology is utilized in varied applications. These include bone marrow transplantation, veto-cell in transplantation, anti-cancer, and also non-malignant diseases.

The patented Veto-Cell technology addresses one of the most fundamental challenges in human immunology. This challenge is: how to tune immune response so that it tolerates specific “desirable” foreign cells while continuing to attack all other potential threats.

Veto cells disable the attack of the immune system on the bone marrow transplantation (BMT) only, without other side effects. The Veto cells act as “decoys” that attract, and then kill, the T-cell clones directed at the transplant.

The Veto cells continue “on guard” in the body for lengthy periods of time to further limit rejection. Therefore, the transplantation is accepted by the body without compromising the rest of the immune system.

The principal goal in developing Veto Cells is to have a meaningful and potentially widespread impact on the field of bone marrow and major organ transplantation. In addition, Veto Cells can be combined with other cell therapy treatments to improve their effectiveness. In preclinical studies, Veto Cells have been shown to increase efficacy and persistence of genetically modified cells.

Along with its Veto Cells technology, Cell Source has its Megadose Drug Combination technology. The method of action includes stem cells overcoming rejection by outnumbering immune rejecting cells, and drugs reduce the need for immune suppression.

The Company has a substantial Intellectual Property (IP) Portfolio, exclusively licensed to it from the Weizmann Institute of Science by way of Yeda Research and Development Company Ltd. covering Dr. Yair Reisner’s technologies.

Dr. Yair Reisner is former Chairman of the Department of Immunology of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science. He pioneered “mismatched” BMT (partial versus full donor/recipient match) with his patented “Megadose” cell therapy treatment.

In essence, Cell Source’s corporate mission is to transform the fields of transplantation, cancer treatment, and reversal of vital organ disease, using its pioneering immune tolerance and organ regeneration technologies.

Cell Source, Inc. (CLCS), closed Monday's trading session at $0.80, up 56.25%, on 100 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2,078 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2601/$1.09.

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.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)

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

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of pressure-based instruments, consumables and related services for the global life sciences industry, today announced that its president and CEO, Richard T. Schumacher, was featured on the Uptick Newswire Stock Day Podcast with Everett Jolly. To listen to the full interview, visit http://nnw.fm/xiZ1j. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/13gNZ.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $2.67, up 16.09%, on 56,278 volume with 113 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7,505 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.52/$5.00.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF).

The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc (OTCQX: SPRWF) was highlighted as one of a handful of marijuana stocks gaining momentum as the market has continued to demonstrate its strength despite the fact that, at times, conversation surrounding cannabis can become less than beneficial. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report featuring the company which examines the recent news that legislators in Minnesota have introduced a bill that is intended to legalize recreational marijuana for adults in the state.

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 $1.6279, off by 5.35%, on 1,131,193 volume with 1,473 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 389,305 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.04.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF).

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF) was highlighted today in a report published by Investorideas.com, as a special edition of The AI Eye hit the wires, which looks at how this technology is disrupting multiple industry verticals and shifting them into a new era of efficiency.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF) is focused on unlocking the value of existing large-scale U.S.-based lithium brine resources that can quickly be brought into production. The Company believes new lithium production can rapidly be brought on stream by minimizing project risks at selection stage; resource, political & geographic, and regulatory & permitting; and by leveraging advances in lithium extraction technologies and processes.

The Company’s flagship project is in southern Arkansas. The more than 180,000-acre “Smackover Project” is in the most prolific and productive brine processing region in North America. Agreements with large commercial brine operators in the region will allow Standard Lithium to utilize the extensive existing infrastructure, including brine supply and disposal pipelines, water, power and a trained workforce to fast-track project development timelines.

“Arkansas produces about 9.4 billion gallons of brine per year, according to 2010-2016 average statistics reported by the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission.”

Standard Lithium signed a binding MoU with global specialty chemicals company LANXESS Corporation and its U.S. affiliate Great Lakes Chemical Corporation with the purpose of demonstrating the commercial viability of extraction of lithium from brine (“tail brine”) that is produced as part of LANXESS’ bromine extraction business at its three Southern Arkansas facilities.

LANXESS’ land operations in Southern Arkansas encompass more than 150,000 acres, 10,000 brine leases and surface agreements and 250 miles of pipelines. LANXESS extracts the brine from its wells located throughout the area, and the brine is transported to the three Arkansas plants through a network of pipelines. The three bromine extraction plants currently employ approximately 500 people and process and reinject several hundred thousand barrels of brine per day.

Standard Lithium has developed a breakthrough rapid lithium extraction process that reduces the recovery time of extracting lithium from brine to as little as several hours vs. the current industry method that takes years. The process is also much more environmentally friendly with a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional processes. The company has a signed agreement to locate a demonstration scale lithium extraction plant inside one of LANXESS’ chemical plants in Southern Arkansas.

The Company has also signed an option agreement with NYSE-listed Tetra Technologies for the lithium rights for exploration, extraction, and possible commercial development on approximately 30,000 acres of brine leases in Southern Arkansas. The largest available land package.

Recent laboratory results of four brine samples recovered from two existing wells in Standard Lithium’s project area showed lithium concentrations ranging between 347-461 mg/L lithium, with an average of 450 mg/L lithium in one of the wells and 350 mg/L in the other. Geological modeling of the project area is complete, and a maiden resource report is on the horizon.

Market Opportunity

World demand for lithium continues to surge. The global lithium compounds market is projected to reach U.S. $5.87 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.22% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium-ion batteries are the fastest growing segment of the market.

Leadership

Standard Lithium’s commitment to being a premier, innovation-driven company focused on developing and commercializing new modern processes for lithium extraction is bolstered by the leading experts that comprise the company’s Scientific Advisory Council. Each member was selected because of their experience and expertise in areas that are central to and/or complement Standard Lithium’s current development plans. Standard Lithium recently welcomed to the Council world-renowned chemist Dr. Barry Sharpless, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.

Standard Lithium is led by a team of professionals with proven strong technical and project development skills. CEO Robert Mintak has a global network of industry contacts and is a pioneer in the rapidly evolving lithium space. COO and President Dr. Andy Robinson is an experienced geoscientist with 20+ years of experience and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. Dr. Robinson has worked on a wide range of projects in the resource, power and energy sectors in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.

The company recently appointed Robert Cross as non-executive chairman. Cross is an engineer with 25 years of experience as a financier and company builder in the mining and oil and gas sectors. He co-founded and serves as chairman of B2Gold, a top-performing growing gold producer which is expected to achieve nearly 1 million ounces of low-cost gold production in 2018. He was also co-founder and chairman of Bankers Petroleum Ltd.; co-founder and chairman of Petrodorado Energy Ltd.; and until October 2007 was the non-executive chairman of Northern Orion Resources Inc. He also was previously the chairman and CEO of Yorkton Securities Inc., and a partner in investment banking with Gordon Capital Corp. in Toronto. Cross has an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo (1982) and received an MBA from Harvard in 1987.

Following a multi-million-dollar financing in Q1 2018, Standard Lithium is well-positioned to meet its upcoming milestones including two maiden resource reports and the launch of its breakthrough rapid lithium extraction technology.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $0.9705, off by 4.85%, on 168,951 volume with 108 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 41,705 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.59/$1.95.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST).

Earth Science Tech (OTCQB: ETST), a Florida-based biotechnology company focused on cannabis and cannabinoid research and development, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, sees new opportunity in the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/j1Ee5.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.

Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:

  • Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
  • Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN)

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

The demand for cannabis-related real estate has increased significantly in San Diego after the recent legalization and approval of three additional industrial properties for planned marijuana production (http://nnw.fm/LkRj9). While this increases the challenge for many marijuana growers, it could give an advantage to companies such as Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (OTC: GRYN), whose aeroponics growing system requires limited land and resources, as compared to traditional growing techniques.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN) is a full-scope, premium cannabis cultivation company targeting the high-end medical and adult-use recreational market. With more than 25 years of experience in agricultural science and innovation, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company will grow by generating revenues from the sales of premium grade cannabis products, developing and licensing valuable IP, making strategic acquisitions, and creating trusted global consumer brands.

The company has integrated and is developing its own IP assets related to proprietary systems and apparatus, software, algorithms and custom-engineered hardware. This provides ultimate efficiencies in a commercially controlled cultivation environment. Utilizing the advantages of hybrid-aeroponics, Green Hygienics creates a sterile growing environment that produces consistent, high-quality product while maintaining the lowest possible carbon footprint. The company utilizes state-of-the-art, quality-controlled commercial cultivation methodology to assure production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis at much higher yields and greatly reduced costs.

Hybrid-aeroponics produces quality cannabis faster than traditional methods since it doesn’t require natural sunlight or soil and can be operational and produce plants anywhere. Plants grown under aeroponic conditions receive water and nutrients directly to their roots via a fine mist in a controlled environment, dramatically reducing spoilage while keeping the product organic and the environment pest-free. The plants are given the exact amount of nutrients and moisture precisely when needed. Green Hygienics maintains ultimate control over every aspect of this cultivation process, which allows the company to operate with conservation of natural resources in mind. The technology that uses 90-95 percent less water and does not require the use of pesticides or fungicides.

Additionally, the company’s state-of-the-art engineered, controlled environments include electrical, mechanical and HVAC designs that meet mandatory fire and energy codes while improving energy efficiency significantly.

Through these practices, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company continues to develop and incubate software as well as engineer hardware to provide additional control over the commercial cultivation method.

Royalty Model & Portfolio

FinCanna’s “whole capital” solution for businesses in the licensed medical cannabis sector includes the provision of capital investment for a percentage of their future revenues. The FinCanna Capital Solution utilizes a royalty arrangement to deliver capital, in order to facilitate the growth or other specific objectives of its investees, and ensure the business opportunity is optimized.

The Interim Facility can process up to 6,000 pounds of biomass per month, the equivalent of approximately 3.7 million grams of raw oil per year, with room for expansion. It is expected that the completed Coachella Project will be able to process 30,000 to 50,000 pounds of biomass per month, or the equivalent of 18 million grams to 30 million grams of raw oil per year.

Gram Co is a cannabinoid research and refinement facility focused providing B2B and B2C products and services to licensed medical dispensaries, infused product manufacturers, and numerous others in the cannabis supply chain. The company is also retrofitting a large, state-of-the-art medical cannabis extraction laboratory, which is expected to be operating in 2018.

The foregoing contains forward-looking statements regarding Cultivation Technologies Inc. (“CTI”) which are subject to risks, uncertainties and contingencies which include, but are not limited to the statements relating the future construction and completion of the CTI medical cannabis facility in Coachella, California, and the projected biomass processing and raw oil production at the facility.
