ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (ARFXF)
Insider Financial, Uptick Newswire, Dividend Investor, Capital Cube, Penny Stock Hub, 4-Traders, Streetwise Reports, Stockhouse, TradingView, Investopedia, Wallmine, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, and OTC Markets reported previously on ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (ARFXF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. focuses on discovering and developing precision medicine therapeutics to treat neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Alzheimer's disease (AD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). The Company’s lead product is PMN310 in Alzheimer’s disease. ProMIS Neurosciences has offices in Toronto, Ontario and Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
ProMIS Neurosciences’ proprietary target discovery engine is based on the use of two complementary techniques. The Company applies its thermodynamic, computational discovery platform-ProMIS™and Collective Coordinates - to predict novel targets known as Disease Specific Epitopes (DSEs) on the molecular surface of misfolded proteins. Utilizing this unique precision medicine approach, ProMIS is developing novel antibody therapeutics and specific companion diagnostics for AD and ALS.
The Company uses its proprietary technology platform to create highly selective antibodies. Its lead programs are following a “best in class” strategy targeting Amyloid beta in Alzheimer’s disease, with advantages over ”first in class” therapy from Biogen (aducanumab).
ProMIS’ PMN310 is on course to further confirm differentiation from likely “first in class” Biogen’s aducanumab. Furthermore, PMN310 is on course to start clinical trials in 2019 and potentially superior clinical data versus aducanumab in late 2021 soon after aducanumab expected approval.
For Alzheimer’s disease, ProMIS Neurosciences’ most advanced priority program, three validated product candidates have been designated. These are PMN310, PMN350, and PMN330. In January of 2018, ProMIS announced that its lead product candidate for Alzheimer's disease (AD), PMN310, showed absence of binding to amyloid beta (Aβ) plaque in and around blood vessels in AD brain samples in a preclinical study directly comparing PMN310 to other Aβ-directed antibodies.
ProMIS Neurosciences announced this past October the identification of novel targets on misfolded, pathological forms of tau. It said that the development of antibody therapeutics that selectively block these toxic forms of tau constitutes an exciting approach to treating Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Last month, ProMIS Neurosciences announced the identification of a number of monoclonal antibody (mAb) drug candidates, which selectively target toxic forms of the protein alpha-synuclein, considered to be a root cause of Parkinson's disease (PD).
Dr. James Kupiec, the Company’s Chief Medical Officer, stated, "We used our proprietary discovery platform to generate several antibody drug candidates for Parkinson's disease that precisely target only the toxic forms of alpha-synuclein. Selectivity represents the essential feature of a successful antibody therapy, for it is critical that treatment not hinder normal forms of alpha-synuclein that play an important functional role in the brain.”
ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (ARFXF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.262, up 2.54%, on 73,200 volume with 37 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 125,175 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.138/$0.415.
Azucar Minerals Ltd. (AXDDF)
Tip Ranks, Streetwise Reports, GuruFocus, Morningstar, Investorx, Stockwatch, The Street, Penny Stock Hub, Barchart, Dividend Investor, Stockhouse, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, Market Screener, 4-Traders, and Interactive Brokers reported earlier on Azucar Minerals Ltd. (AXDDF), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Azucar Minerals Ltd. is an exploration company with a mandate to thoroughly explore the El Cobre project in Veracruz, Mexico. The Company was formerly known as Almadex Minerals Limited. It changed its name to Azucar Minerals Ltd. in May of last year. Azucar Minerals has its corporate office in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQX.
Azucar Minerals holds a 100 percent interest in the El Cobre project, subject to Net Smelter Returns (NSR) royalty interests, assuming production from the property exceeds 10,001 tonnes per day of ore, totaling 2.25 percent which can be reduced to 2.0 percent through the payment of US$3.0 million.
The El Cobre project is a roughly 7,300 Ha property. It covers manifold gold-rich porphyry targets, as demonstrated by recent drilling. Azucar Minerals is fully permitted for drilling and funded for an active exploration campaign this year. El Cobre is 75 kilometers northwest of Veracruz city.
The El Cobre project is road accessible. It is situated in an area of first-rate infrastructure, close to a power plant, highways and rail systems. The project has four copper-gold porphyry targets - Encinal, El Porvenir, Norte, and Villa Rica. The porphyries are defined by distinct copper-gold soil anomalies, discrete positive magnetic features, and an extensive shallow IP chargeability anomaly.
In late February, Azucar Minerals announced that it hit 18.00 M of 0.51 g/t Au and 0.43% Cu at the Villa Rica Target, El Cobre Project, Mexico. The Company announced results from its continuing drilling program at the El Cobre porphyry copper-gold project in Veracruz State. Drilling is now taking place at the Villa Rica target, the Norte zone and in the Porvenir/Encinal area.
The results reported are from the Villa Rica area, a large (approximately 2.5 by 1 km) altered area defined by high magnetics responses with local zones of elevated copper, gold and molybdenum in soil. Hole EC-18-052 and 054 were drilled underneath the earlier announced hole EC-17-037.
Both EC-18-052 and 54 hit porphyry mineralization (EC-18-052 hit 18.00 meters that averaged 0.51 g/t gold and 0.42% copper). The intercepts in the three holes suggest that the mineralized intrusive has been clipped and the drilling has not cut across the potential porphyry body so far. More drilling is taking place in the Villa Rica area based on these results.
Azucar Minerals Ltd. (AXDDF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.221, down 7.69%, on 28,774 volume with 19 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 58,368 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.215/$1.29.

Individuals hoping to gain exposure to the movement of the markets have two primary options: spend a lot of time and effort researching public companies, or put faith into a fund.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
Cannabis-focused research and development company The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) this morning announced its entry into a multi-year extraction services contract with Valens GroWorks Corp. (CSE: VGW) (OTCQB: VGWCF), a licensed provider of cannabis products and services specializing in various proprietary extraction, distillation, cannabinoid isolation and purification technologies. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report featuring the company, detailing how, increasingly, novices and seasoned traders alike are turning to mutual funds for their stability and ease of use.
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.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN)
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. The House Judiciary Committee in Kentucky voted on Wednesday (March 6) to pass a bill that would legalize medical cannabis in the state. The bill will now be sent to the Rules Committee of the Assembly. House Bill 136 was co-sponsored by 43 members out of the 100 members in the entire lawmaking chamber. This bill intends to create a Department for Alcoholic Beverage and Cannabis Control. This agency will then design a medical cannabis program for the state.
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. Pakulis oversaw the company’s growth from zero to over $16 million in annual revenue in less than 24 months.
The company’s strategic advisors include individuals with extensive experience in branding, marketing, sales, distribution, production and supply chain management.

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 $1.60, up 3.90%, on 870,702 volume with 1,068 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 521,291 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.04.

Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP)
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (OTC PINK: DVLP) ("DVLP" or the "Company"), an emerging leader in the Cannabis and CBD industries, is proud to announce the completion of its acquisition of Infusionz, LLC (CBD Infusionz), a manufacturer of CBD based products. CBD Infusionz offers it's broad product line through it's website, https://www.cbdinfusionz.com/, retail outlets and contract manufacturing agreements.
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), an emerging leader in ancillary software and the cannabidiol (CBD) products marketplace, provides business services and/or products supporting the cannabis industry including an online retail business for CBD, hemp oil and health/wellness related products.
Global acceptance of cannabis and related CBD products continues to increase as North America advances toward favorable legislation. Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, and the United States has 30 states and the District of Columbia allowing either recreational or medical cannabis, or both. Voters in four additional U.S. states will consider marijuana initiatives on the November 2018 ballot. The global legal cannabis market is projected to reach USD$146 billion by the end of 2025, with a greater acceptance of medical cannabis products as a driving factor, according to Grand View Research.
DVLP is taking advantage of consumer demand for CBD products through its wholly owned Pura Vida Vitamins, LLC subsidiary, which recently launched a direct-to-consumer website (www.PuraVidaVitamins.com) and commenced sales of Pura Vida branded products. Pura Vida merchandise includes hemp and CBD-related products and other products focusing on health and lifestyle which are available through established wholesale and distribution channels. In addition, a line of CBD pet supplements and other products are in development.
DVLP recently acquired “Where’s Weed” (Layer Six Media LLC DBA “Where’s Weed”) and its primary asset, WheresWeed.com. Where’s Weed is an American cannabis technology company known for connecting medical and recreational cannabis users with trusted local marijuana businesses in their communities. As a rapidly growing community-based online resource for cannabis consumers with a host of user-friendly services, Where’s Weed offers a sophisticated mobile app with strong traction and powerful growth potential as the North American legal cannabis market continues to expand exponentially.
WheresWeed.com has a large and expanding reach with nearly 3 million pageviews per month. In addition, the WheresWeed mobile app, available in both iOS and Android, has been downloaded over 80,000 times, proving to be complementary to DVLP’s objective to capitalize on the massive growth curve in the marijuana space.
“The huge flood of new growers and producers is likely to create oversupply in the near term, narrowing margins for major producers,” says DVLP CEO Stavros Triant. “However, this should actually increase the net number of new consumers in the marketplace, further reinforcing the enormous growth potential for hub service providers in the space that are situated on high-traffic internet real estate, which is exactly how we view the Where’s Weed property.”
The company’s move into the lucrative C-store snack market was solidified with a material purchase order for CBD oils from a major distributor specializing in the snack foods and accessories to the convenience store and gas station market. The order represents significant progress as DVLP gears up its ready-made snack distribution strategy for its CBD products.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of our CBD product line with this distributor,” Triant states. “The C-Store strategy dovetails perfectly with our direct marketing strategy through our primary online retail channel, and we have indications from the distributor that, if this initial test order goes well, successive Purchase Orders could be significant and underpin strong sales growth in Q1 2019.”
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), closed the day's trading session at $0.0195, up 9.00%, on 5,049,671 volume with 207 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1,959,411 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0122/$0.14.

Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF)
Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. The House Judiciary Committee in Kentucky voted on Wednesday (March 6) to pass a bill that would legalize medical cannabis in the state. The bill will now be sent to the Rules Committee of the Assembly.
Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) is a medical device technology provider focused on addressing dermatological needs in the multi-billion-dollar cosmeceutical industry. The company’s effective, non-invasive and pain-free skin care is based on proprietary technology which has received Class II medical device status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Therma Bright’s portfolio includes products, devices and treatments that have both cosmetic and medicinal or therapeutic benefits, such as for relief of pain, itch and inflammation resulting from more than 20,000 types of insect and marine life bites and stings, including bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitos, black flies and jellyfish.
The Company’s current focus is to market its products online through various social media networks, and to eventually re-establish relationships with major North American and Global retailers.
The company currently has two products on the market and another in the research and development phase:
InterceptCS™ is a thermal therapy device for the treatment and prevention of cold sores caused by the herpes simplex Type 1 virus*. Symptoms typically include sores around the mouth and lips which InterceptCS™ treats by application of controlled topical heat with no risk of burning the skin. When used at the first sign of an oncoming cold sore application of InterceptCS™ can prevent symptoms from developing. Infrared energy and light from the device penetrate the skin killing cells infected with the virus.
InterceptCS™ is available without prescription and comprises a battery powered ergonomic hand-held unit and a disposable single-use treatment activator. Therma Bright has completed prototyping of multi-use activators for InterceptCS™. The company plans to bring to market 5, 10 or 20 multi-use activations at prices that will offer customers greater value than the current single-use activator.
The other Therma Bright product currently under development is TherOZap™, a next generation thermal therapy device powered by the company’s core technology, which is approved by the FDA as a Class II medical device for the relief of the symptoms of insect bites. Therma Bright is testing a new easier-to-use prototype of the device for effectiveness against Zika virus and other diseases carried by mosquitos. Once the technology proves effective, Therma Bright intends to seek regulatory approvals and extend the prototype enhancements to a new commercial version of TherOZap™.
Therma Bright is also conducting research and development on a unique thermal therapy device that would incorporate medical grade cannabis or cannabidiol (“CDB”) sourced from hemp as a cream or gel to provide relief of back, knee and other joint pain. In preparation, the company has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary to hold any technology for use or application of cannabis. Once approvals are secured, the company plans to sell the device through licensed cannabis producers or retailers across Canada and in international markets where use of cannabis has been legalized. The company has initiated trademark and patent protection for its thermal therapy technology incorporating medical cannabis. Therma Bright has indicated it will seek an acquisition to help further development of this product.
A report by market intelligence firm Mordor Intelligence put the global cosmeceuticals market at a value of nearly US$47 billion in 2017 and projects it to be worth more than $80 billion by 2023, growing at a rate of almost 9.5 percent annually. Medical research estimates that somewhere between 20 percent and 40 percent of the population suffer occasional cold sore outbreaks. In Canada those figures would mean five to 10 million people, and in the U.S. some 40 million to 80 million, with recurring cold sores, representing a substantial potential market for Therma Bright.
Rob Fia serves as Therma Bright chairman and CEO. Fia has extensive contacts in the investment community and the financial sector as well as knowledge of various Canadian stock exchange listing processes and requirements. His 18 years in the investment business has included equity research and advising promising early stage companies on corporate finance. Therma Bright CFO Victor Hugo is a senior financial analyst at Marrelli Support Services Inc., for which he provides CFO, accounting, regulatory compliance, and management advisory services to companies listed on the TSX, TSX Venture Exchange and other Canadian and US exchanges.
**Based on double blind placebo study, the InterceptCS™ is approved by Health Canada for the claim “For prevention of cold sores when used within 3 hours of the onset of the prodrome.” The InterceptCS™ is not approved by the United States FDA or any claim of clinical indication, clinical efficacy, and/or cure or prevention of disease.
Therma Bright, Inc. (OTC: THRBF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0278, even for the day. The average volume for the last 3 months is 5,750 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0099/$0.29.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. Individuals hoping to gain exposure to the movement of the markets have two primary options: spend a lot of time and effort researching public companies, or put faith into a fund. A solid investment strategy is key to keeping pace with inflation and reaching your financial goals, but the significant risk and volatility that can come with investing in a small group of companies is a real turn-off for most part-time investors.
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 $0.74239, off by 3.84%, on 353,386 volume with 183 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 387,325 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.413/$1.79.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST), an innovative biotech company based in Florida, is actively pursuing a dual listing of its common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”). In December 2018, ETST engaged the counsel of Fasken, a full-service law firm with offices in Canada and worldwide, to assist with the process, including preparing and filing the required documentation (http://nnw.fm/vk7aI).
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. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.
Earth Science Tech’s products include CBD, a natural constituent of hemp oil derived from hemp stalk and seed. EST offers CBD in the form of vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, homeopathies, functional foods and other products delivered in such forms as capsules, tablets, soft gels, chewables, liquids, creams, sprays, powders and whole herbs. Earth Science products can be found at retail stores throughout the United States and are available for purchase through the internet.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST), closed the day's trading session at $0.7349, off by 0.01%, on 39,431 volume with 27 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 31,153 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.421/$2.45.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN)
As the regulatory framework has changed dramatically over the past few years, the number of companies entering the cannabis sector has increased exponentially. In 2017 alone, there were 28,000 companies active in the field in the United States (http://nnw.fm/JiMU7). Growth continued throughout 2018, when the legal marijuana industry reached $10.4 billion and created over a quarter of a million jobs (http://nnw.fm/4luBN). Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: GRYN) is already capitalizing on its proprietary cultivation technique. New developments have turned the company into a science-driven cultivation leader as it employs aeroponics-based 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. The company’s science-based approach reveals any growth anomalies before the human eye can see them. This makes it possible to monitor all facets of production, identify cultivation problems based upon scientific data, and implement immediate corrective action, if needed.
The future of commercial cannabis cultivation hinges on using science to control the growing environment in order to remain competitive and deliver a premium grade of product on a consistent basis. The company holds a competitive advantage through its ability to produce premium cannabis products at a significantly lower cost per gram than direct competitors and others in the cannabis industry.
Innovations within the sector that create efficiencies and successful brands will become highly valued. Green Hygienics and its forward-thinking management team are constantly studying the market dynamics of the cannabis industry in North America and abroad while actively pursuing possible expansion opportunities. The company is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and establishing operations in San Diego, California, targeting the $5 billion California cannabis market.
Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN), closed the day's trading session at $0.51, off by 1.92%, on 34,378 volume with 19 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 26,153 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.061/$0.61.

Wildflower Brands Inc. (CSE: SUN) (OTCQB: WLDFF) is a public cannabis company developing and designing brands that focus on plant-based wellness and health products. Wildflower markets its full-spectrum CBD products to retailers in the health and wellness space throughout the United States and in legal cannabis markets in accordance with regulations marketing its THC and CBD products.
Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Wildflower employs a unique and holistic business model that encompasses research and development, manufacturing, distribution, marketing and retail. First launched in 2012 as a private company with a cannabis-focused brand, Wildflower went public in 2014 and has since reached numerous significant milestones in its drive to create brands that work in synergy toward becoming a global wellness brand leader.
Gathered within the growing family of Wildflower brands are the following entities:
- Wildflower Wellness is known for its reputable brand, uncompromising quality and mission to connect people with the healing power of plants. Wildflower Wellness offers CBD vaporizers, capsules, tinctures, soaps and topicals that are backed by a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. Wildflower Wellness offers a full lineup of full spectrum CBD extract infused products made in the U.S. in Wildflower’s GMP facilities which are always third-party lab tested for quality assurance and accurate labeling.

Expansion plans into Canada are underway with discussions centered on retail acquisitions and Wildflower launching into over-the-counter market with its CBD product line. Global expansion is a key part of Wildflower’s strategy with initial plans aimed at specific international markets where regulatory hurdles are less restrictive.

City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR)
City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR) (formerly Icon Exploration Inc.) (the "Company" or "City View Green") trading through the facilities of the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") under the symbol "CVGR" is pleased to announce that Budd Hutt Inc., a retail focused cannabis company which City View Green owns a 19.99% stake in, has appointed Mr. Craig Belcher as CEO.
City View Green Holdings Inc.'s (CSE: CVGR) (formerly Icon Exploration Inc.) primary objective is to create a well-diversified company focused on assessing and potentially acquiring targets in the cannabis industry. Icon Exploration recently signed a formal share exchange agreement relating to its proposed acquisition of privately held City View Green (“CVG”), a vertically integrated cannabis company incorporated under the laws of Ontario, Canada. CVG’s application to Health Canada for an A6ccess to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) license is now at the in-depth review stage of the licensing process.
CVG is preparing a 40,000-square-foot growing facility near Toronto to produce pharmaceutical-grade cannabis once its ACMPR license is granted. About half of the facility will initially be outfitted with state-of-the-art LED lighting, HVAC and dehumidification systems, and automation technologies to optimize the quality, safety and consistency of cannabis production. About 4,000 square feet will be devoted to an extraction laboratory featuring an ultra-efficient CO2 supercritical extraction process with plans to include ethanol extraction technology in the future.
Another 4.3 acres remains available for future construction of up to 125,000 square feet of grow and extraction space. Production plans include producing high quality edible products, distillates, and water-soluble products for the rapidly expanding CBD-infused (cannabidiol) beverage market.
Icon and CVG have assembled a talented team that includes a Master Grower with cannabis-industry experience to manage indoor grow operations and an extraction expert whose expertise in developing and launching new products was honed while working in Washington state’s cannabis sector. Having gained experience in the Washington state market the extraction expert has a number of brand ideas and recreational cannabis products that became popular in the Washington market as well as a number of in-licensing branding opportunities available to CVG. CVG has also negotiated an agreement with a private company seeking 37 retail cannabis licenses in Alberta, Canada, that provides a reciprocal exchange of shares, product, shelf space and distribution lines. Early discussions with various entities in Europe to arrange an off-take agreement for CBD oils and extracts are also underway.
The Canadian medical cannabis market has steadily been growing with an average 10 percent increase in patients each month. Now that the Canadian federal government has legalized recreational cannabis for adult users nationwide, analysts project a compound annual growth rate of nearly 78 percent from 2018 to 2021, reaching an estimated $3 billion by 2021, ArcView Market Research reports. One study from Deloitte pegged the potential economic impact of legalized medical and recreational marijuana in Canada – including transportation, licensing fees and security – at more than $22 billion over the coming years. Health Canada’s most recent data show that sales of cannabis extracts grew 961 percent in the second quarter of 2017, compared to an 89 percent increase in growth of dried cannabis during the same period.
City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR), closed the day's trading session at $0.19, off by 9.52%, on 293,042 volume with 76 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2,257,195 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.145/$0.465.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)
Warren Buffett, ‘the Oracle of Omaha’, famously said, “A truly great business must have an enduring ‘moat’ that protects excellent returns on invested capital.” By a moat, the legendary investor meant some competitive advantage that would sustain the enterprise by protecting its market from rival firms. A patent, like the one issued to Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA), can work just as well, he said (http://nnw.fm/8ZzVK).
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.
The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.
The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.
Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program. Through hempSMART, MCOA’s strategic approach to the distribution of products is through a networking architecture geared to maintain customer loyalty and capture market share. The patent-pending product “hempSMART Brain,” is designed to revolutionize the safe and effective support of healthy brain function. The brand new product, HempSMART DROPS, is a full-spectrum CBD tincture formulated with hemp and fractionated coconut oils. The hempSMART marketing team has decades of experience, and is well positioned to take the hempSMART brand to a global audience.
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA), closed the day's trading session at $0.0118, off by 2.48%, on 12,952,263 volume with 330 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 13,625,856 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0115/$0.0499.
