Dividend Investor, Stockwatch, Capital Cube, Cardinal Weekly, Investors Hangout, Insider Mole, Stockopedia, Penny Stock Hub, Stockhouse, InvestorsHub, Wallmine, OTC Markets, Barchart, MarketWatch, and 4-Traders reported earlier on Wize Pharma, Inc. (WIZP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Wize Pharma, Inc. focuses on the treatment of ophthalmic disorders. This includes dry eye syndrome (DES). The OTCQB-listed Company previously went by the name Star Night Technologies Ltd. It changed its corporate name to Wize Pharma, Inc. in July of 2015. A clinical-stage biopharmaceutical enterprise, the Company is headquartered in Hod Hasharon, Israel.
Wize Pharma has in-licensed certain rights to purchase, market, sell, and distribute a formula named LO2A. This is a drug developed for the treatment of DES, and other ophthalmological illnesses, including conjunctivochalasis (CCH) and Sjögren's Syndrome. Currently, LO2A is registered and marketed by its inventor in Germany and Switzerland for the treatment of DES, in Hungary for the treatment of DES and CCH, and in the Netherlands for the treatment of DES and Sjögren's Syndrome.
Wize Pharma is now conducting a Phase II trial of LO2A for patients with CCH and a Phase IV study for LO2A for DES in patients with Sjögren's. The Company announced in March of last year that it enrolled the initial patient in its Phase IV clinical trial in Israel for LO2A in the symptomatic treatment of dry eye syndrome (DES) in patients with Sjögren's syndrome. This randomized, double-masked study is evaluating LO2A versus Alcon's Systane® Ultra UD, an over-the-counter (OTC) lubricant eye drop product used to relieve dry and irritated eyes.
The design of the study (in addition to meeting marketing approval requirements in Israel) is to support Wize Pharma’s clinical approval pathway for LO2A for the treatment of DES in patients with Sjögren's in other markets including the U.S., China, and Ukraine. LO2A is already approved in Israel for the treatment of DES.
This past November, Wize Pharma announced top line results from its Phase II clinical trial in Israel of LO2A for the symptomatic treatment of dry eye syndrome (DES) in patients with moderate to severe conjunctivochalasis (CCh). Wize Pharma's Chairman, Noam Danenberg, stated, "We are very pleased with these top line results and we look forward to analyzing the full results. We believe the full results from this study, will support our clinical development path and provide firm basis for presentation and discussions with the FDA for the approval pathway of LO2A in the U.S. and additional countries."
Last week, Wize Pharma announced that it signed an agreement with Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: CNBX) to form a joint venture (JV) company for researching, developing and administering cannabinoid formulations to treat ophthalmic conditions. Cannabics Pharmaceuticals is a global leader in personalized cannabinoid medicine centered on cancer and its side effects.
This agreement will become effective subject to receipt of an expert opinion, within 30 days from the date of signing, describing the regulatory pathway for eye drops containing cannabinoids. Upon effectiveness, Wize Pharma shall issue 900,000 shares of its common stock to Cannabics Pharmaceuticals. Cannabics shall issue 2,263,944 shares of its common stock to Wize. This agreement will expire if the parties have not approved a business plan by June 30, 2019.

(COCP), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. develops novel antiviral therapeutics as treatments for serious and/or chronic viral diseases. The Company uses unique technologies and Nobel Prize winning expertise to create first- and best-in-class antiviral drugs. The design of these technologies, including its nucleoside chemistry expertise and market-centered approach to drug discovery, are to efficiently deliver small molecule therapeutics, which are safe, effective, and convenient to administer. A biotechnology enterprise, Cocrystal Pharma is headquartered in Bothell, Washington.
The Company’s proprietary technologies revolve around a structure-based drug discovery strategy teamed up with extensive nucleoside experience. Utilizing techniques called protein cocrystallization and X-ray crystallography, Cocrystal Pharma quickly identifies novel binding sites, identifies critical inhibitor-protein interactions, and optimizes the structure of the inhibitor in a highly rapid iterative fashion. The Company has identified promising, preclinical stage antiviral compounds for unmet medical needs. These include hepatitis, influenza, and norovirus infections.
Cocrystal is developing a series of compounds that are potent non-nucleoside and nucleoside inhibitors of hepatitis C NS5B RNA dependent RNA polymerase, a replication enzyme vital to viral replication and are highly conserved between all hepatitis C genotypes. Therefore, inhibitors of this enzyme are likely to have multi- or pan-genotypic activity.
In addition, the Company is developing compounds that inhibit hepatitis C helicase and NS5A, two enzymes important for viral replication. Cocrystal has also identified a picomolar inhibitor of NS5A; another crucial viral replication protein.
Last month, Cocrystal Pharma announced that it entered into an exclusive license and collaboration agreement with Merck to discover and develop certain proprietary influenza A/B antiviral agents. With this agreement, Merck will fund research and development (R&D) for the program, including clinical development. Merck will be responsible for global commercialization of any products derived from the collaboration. Cocrystal Pharma will be paid an undisclosed upfront sum. Cocrystal is eligible to receive payments related to designated development, regulatory and sales milestones with the potential to earn up to $156 million and undisclosed royalties on product sales.
Additionally, last month, Cocrystal Pharma announced safety and preliminary efficacy data for its U.S. Phase 2a study evaluating CC-31244 for the ultra-short treatment of HCV infected individuals.

The treatment was well tolerated with no study discontinuations because of adverse events. Eight of 12 subjects achieved the primary efficacy endpoint of sustained virologic response at 12 weeks after completion of treatment (SVR12). SVR12 is defined as undetectable virus in blood 12 weeks after completion of treatment and considered a virologic cure.

With this precision, high grade precious and base metal veins can undergo extraction without dilution. The thermal unit can be set up to extract a specific corridor. Thermal Fragmentation could be utilized as a stand-alone method or as a first-rate complement to any conventional hard rock mining operation.
Nippon’s flagship gold property is Rocmec 1. This is a fully permitted project in Quebec. The project includes a 100-meter deep, two-compartment shaft, and an 844 meters’ decline, allowing access to four levels (50, 90, 110 and 130 meters).
The Company also has its Courville-Maruska exploration property in Courville Township, about 32 kilometers’ northeast of Val-d'Or, Quebec. The property comprises 20 mining claims encompassing an area of roughly 800 hectares. The property is on a gold-bearing quartz vein system.
Furthermore, Nippon has its Denain Project. This project covers two contiguous mining properties (Venpar and Vauquelin) totaling 24 mining titles. The Denain Project is around 60 km east of Val d'Or, Quebec.
Nippon Dragon Resources has a strategic partnership agreement with Val d’Or Resources (VOR). The partnership agreement will enhance Nippon Dragon’s position as an industry leader with its exclusive and patented Thermal Fragmentation technology. Via the creation of a new entity, Rocmec Gold, Inc., the new partnership is expected to substantially expand Nippon Dragon’s reach within Canada and other important markets.
Recently, Nippon Dragon Resources announced that following the sale of a thermal fragmentation unit to its client, Metalfer Mining D.O.O, the Unit was shipped, received, inspected by border authorities and released to the client. In June, Nippon’s technical team started its customary four week orientation, training and implementation programme of its thermal fragmentation mining method at Metalfer’s mining site in Majdan Mountain district of Serbia.
Metalfer chose four of its employees with mechanical and heavy equipment experience to be trained to operate the Unit. This training programme covers all elements related to safety issues, hands-on instructions, operational usage, production and servicing of the Unit.

Zacks, YCharts, Stockhouse, The Street, 4-Traders, Dividend Investor, Wallet Investors, and OTC Markets reported on Hochschild Mining PLC (HCHDF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Hochschild Mining PLC engages in the exploration, mining, processing, and sale of silver and gold deposits in the Americas. A precious metals enterprise, the Company is a leading underground precious metals producer focusing on high grade silver and gold deposits.
Hochschild Mining is headquartered in Lima, Peru. The Company also has a corporate office in London, United Kingdom (UK) and an office in Argentina.
Hochschild Mining currently operates four underground mines. Three are in southern Peru and one is in southern Argentina. All of the Company’s underground operations are epithermal vein mines. The primary mining method used is cut and fill. The ore at Hochschild’s operations is processed into silver-gold concentrate or dore.
Regarding present operations, Inmaculada is the Company’s flagship asset. Inmaculada is a 20,000 hectare two-third gold and one-third silver mine consisting of 40 mining concessions located in the Ayacucho Department in southern Peru.
The Arcata unit is situated in the Department of Arequipa in southern Peru. It is approximately 300 kilometers from the city of Arequipa, on a 47,000-hectare site. Arcata is a 100 percent owned underground operation.
The Pallancata silver/gold property is positioned in the Department of Ayacucho in southern Peru, roughly 160 kilometers from the Arcata operation. Pallancata commenced production in 2007. Hochschild Mining owns 100 percent of the operation.
The San Jose silver-gold mine is in Argentina, in the Santa Cruz province, 1,750 kilometers south-southwest of Buenos Aires. The property covers a total area of 50,491 hectares.

Last month, Hochschild Mining announced that it delivered a new record half of attributable production with 268,237 gold equivalent ounces or 19.9 million silver equivalent ounces chiefly driven by considerable increases at Inmaculada and Pallancata, and another strong result from the 51 percent owned San Jose mine.

BioVie, Inc. (BIVI)
Wealth Insider Alert reported previously on BioVie, Inc. (BIVI), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
BioVie, Inc. focuses on the discovery, development, and commercialization of inventive drug therapies for liver disease. Currently, the clinical-stage Company is concentrating on commercializing BIV201. This is a novel approach to the treatment of ascites due to chronic liver cirrhosis. BioVie has its corporate headquarters in Beverly, Massachusetts. The Company’s shares trade on the OTCQB.
BIV201 is a continuous infusion of the peptide terlipressin, first undergoing development for the treatment of refractory ascites. Terlipressin, dosed differently, is approved in approximately 40 nations for other complications of liver cirrhosis coming up from a similar disease pathway. Terlipressin is not available in the United States.
BioVie states that BIV201 has the potential to improve the health of thousands of patients suffering from life-threatening complications of liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis, NASH, and alcoholism. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued US Patent No. 9,655,945 covering the Company’s new drug candidate BIV201.
BIV201 has Orphan Drug designation for the most common of these complications, ascites, which represents a major unmet medical need. The FDA has never approved any drug specifically for treating ascites. In addition to patient suffering, U.S. treatment costs for liver cirrhosis, including ascites and other complications, are estimated at over $4 billion per year.
In April 2017, BioVie announced that it received notice from the FDA that the planned Phase 2a clinical trial of its new drug candidate BIV201 may begin. This was based on BioVie’s IND to conduct a study in patients with refractory or intractable ascites due to advanced liver cirrhosis.
Furthermore, the Company was notified by the USPTO that its application for a core patent covering the use of BIV201 to lessen ascites formation in ambulatory patients was authorized.
Additionally, BioVie announced in April 2017 the signing of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). This is to conduct a Phase 2a clinical trial of BIV201 in patients with refractory or intractable ascites because of advanced liver cirrhosis.
In November 2017, BioVie reported that a second patient was dosed with the Orphan drug candidate BIV201 (continuous infusion terlipressin) in a mid-stage Phase 2a clinical trial of patients suffering from refractory ascites due to advanced liver cirrhosis. The design of the study is to evaluate 6 patients with refractory ascites. In October 2017, the first patient completed 28 days of treatment with BIV201 and entered the post-therapy observational period.
Recently, BioVie announced that the FDA granted Fast Track designation for BIV201 (continuous infusion terlipressin), the Company's patented Orphan drug candidate. BIV201 is now undergoing evaluation for the treatment of refractory ascites due to liver cirrhosis in a mid-stage (Phase 2a) US clinical trial, with two of the planned six patients having been treated with this therapy so far. The results for all six refractory ascites patients planned for the Company’s Phase 2a clinical trial of BIV201 are expected by Q2 of 2018.
BioVie, Inc. (BIVI), closed Monday's trading session at $0.038, down 5.00%, on 266,064 volume with 17 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 41,278 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.012/$0.25.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX-V: VIVO, OTCQX: VVCIF) ("VIVO" or the "Company"), a licensed cannabis producer offering premium medical and adult-use products and services, today announces that the Company's subsidiary, ABcann Medicinals Inc. ("ABcann"), has received approval from Health Canada for its most recent license amendment request allowing for the sale of cannabis oil.
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), VIVO has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.
“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” VIVO CEO Barry Fishman said.
VIVO owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.
VIVO has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with VIVO’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.
This global growth potential is illustrated by VIVO’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting VIVO’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.
VIVO’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with VIVO’s philosophy of quality and innovation.
VIVO’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.
Notably, VIVO also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.
With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, VIVO is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF), closed the day's trading session at $0.7019, up 0.91%, on 858,870 volume with 285 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 360,140 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.413/$2.289.

BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.
The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.
BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.
BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.
Breast Cancer Statistics
The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.
Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.
The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.

The company’s organic process includes living soil, sustainable energy and laboratory certification and testing. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article looking at companies in the cannabis space worth further investigation. January’s bull run for the cannabis industry led to a natural correction, it looks like the sector is gaining support for its next push, there are several opportunities in the cannabis space you should begin researching.
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.

In addition, TransCanna also completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) for total gross proceeds of C$2.2 million, which will be used to fund its general working capital for the next 12 months including its entry into California’s cannabis transportation and branding market, per a prospectus filed on SEDAR in December (http://nnw.fm/lMN9w).

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.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF) was highlighted today in a report published by StockPrice.com. The marijuana stock market has occupied media headlines over the course of the past couple of years, during the course of which top players in the industry saw huge boosts in investor interest. With the increase of capital and new business entering the market, the cannabis sector has shown serious promise in terms of generating potential opportunities.
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.

In a new Audio Press Release (“APR”), CannabisNewsAudio praised Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) (http://nnw.fm/iY84s) for building a large funding deal on its own terms.
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 $1.30, off by 2.99%, on 67,565 volume with 110 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 183,875 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF)
FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) a royalty company for the U.S. licensed medical cannabis industry is pleased to announce that further to its news release of January 11, 2019 wherein it announced the closing of the first tranche of its oversubscribed Secured Convertible Debentures (“Debentures”) financing of $2.4 million, FinCanna has upsized and closed the second and final tranche of the financing for an additional $2.4 million. The aggregate proceeds of this financing total $4.8 million.
FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) is a royalty company aiming to be the capital partner of choice for high-growth, best-in-class businesses operating in the licensed U.S. medical cannabis industry. Primarily focused on the burgeoning California cannabis market, FinCanna leverages extensive investment expertise and industry experience to benefit its shareholders and portfolio companies.
Medical Cannabis Market
According to Ameri Research, the global market for licensed medical cannabis is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 21%, on track to exceed $63.5 billion by 2024. Within this market, FinCanna has identified considerable opportunity in California, the fifth largest economy in the world and the largest medical cannabis market in North America. Arcview Group forecasts California’s legal cannabis industry will grow at 21.1% CAGR to $6.5 billion in 2020, generating more than $1 billion in tax revenue.
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. This model provides an alternative or complement to debt and equity financing, allowing investees to maintain financial flexibility and control of their business rather than entering into arrangements that may include restrictive debt structures or giving up an ownership stake.
FinCanna’s portfolio includes Cultivation Technologies, Inc. (“CTI”), a team of experts from Fortune 150 agriculture, medical cannabis, law, engineering and technology companies. FinCanna is providing funding to CTI for its planned, fully entitled, large-scale indoor medical cannabis facility to be developed in Coachella, California.
CTI has established an interim medical cannabis extraction facility (the “Interim Facility”) that will produce licensed medical cannabis products until the Coachella Project is complete. CTI is currently expanding its product line, Coachella Premium, to include vaporizer cartridges. Initial market feedback gathered during the product development phase indicates that Coachella Premium’s vaporizer cartridges offer a unique proposition within the vaporizer market, one of the fastest growing verticals in the cannabis market.
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.
Additionally FinCanna has entered into a royalty agreement with Green Compliance, a provider of point-of-sale software solution (“ezGreen”) for licensed medical cannabis dispensaries and cultivators. Green Compliance helps its customers comply with both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and State Laws by ensuring patients’ confidential data is being handled properly, helping to protect from possible security breaches and financial and criminal liability resulting from potential violations.
FinCanna has also signed binding term sheet with Oakland, California-based Gram Co Holdings, subject to due diligence by FinCanna. 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. Such forward looking statements are based on assumptions regarding the construction, completion and operations of CTI’s proposed facility, including that CTI will obtain the financing required to build and equip its proposed facility, that CTI will obtain the additional financing required operate the facility, that construction facility is completed on time and budget, that CTI obtains state licenses to operate on a permanent basis, and that the equipment used in the cultivation of medical cannabis performs at scale in a similar way it performs at CTI’s pilot tests.
