Cardax, Inc. (CDXI)

Zacks, Street Insider, 4-Traders, Barchart, InvestorsHub, Market Exclusive and Stockhouse reported on Cardax, Inc. (CDXI), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Cardax, Inc. is a development stage Life Sciences Company headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii. It dedicates chiefly all its efforts to developing consumer health and pharmaceutical products that it believes will provide many of the anti-inflammatory benefits of steroids or NSAIDS through targeting many of the same inflammatory pathways and mediators, however with exceptional safety profiles. Cardax’s shares trade on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

Cardax is preparing proprietary nature-identical products and related derivatives by way of total synthesis to provide scalable, pure, and economical therapies for diseases where inflammation and oxidative stress are strongly implicated. This includes, but is not limited to, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, dyslipidemia, metabolic disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hepatitis, cognitive decline, macular degeneration, and prostate disease.

The Company’s initial principal emphasis is its astaxanthin technologies. Astaxanthin is a strong and safe, naturally occurring, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant without the adverse side effects characteristic of anti-inflammatory treatments utilizing steroids or NSAIDS (including immune system suppression, liver damage, cardiovascular disease risk, and gastrointestinal bleeding).

Cardax’s ZanthoSyn® is its first product to help consumers safely address their inflammatory health. The Company says that ZanthoSyn® is a physician recommended, anti-inflammatory supplement for health and longevity, which features astaxanthin with optimal absorption and purity.

ZanthoSyn® contains astaxanthin, which is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) according to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. The safety and efficacy of Cardax’s product candidates have not been directly evaluated in clinical trials or confirmed by the FDA.

Cardax entered into a mutual exclusivity agreement with General Nutrition Corporation (GNC) in 2017 for ZanthoSyn. The exclusivity agreement builds on Cardax’s previously announced national rollout of ZanthoSyn across GNC's more than 3,200 U.S. corporate stores.

It now designates GNC as the exclusive "brick-and-mortar" retailer of ZanthoSyn in the U.S. The exclusivity agreement encompasses the use of ZanthoSyn as a human dietary supplement, with an initial term of two years and provides for automatic renewals. GNC is the leading specialty retailer of health, wellness, as well as performance products.

Recently, Cardax announced that it engaged industry veteran and orphan drug expert, Frederick D. Sancilio, Ph.D., to launch its orphan drug development program. Dr. Sancilio has more than four decades of pharmaceutical industry experience. This includes founding and running a leading contract research organization (CRO), which contributed to over 2,000 drug product registrations in the United States, Asia, and Europe.

Last week, Cardax announced its results for Q2 of 2018. Revenues from sales of ZanthoSyn®, the Company’s premium astaxanthin dietary supplement for inflammatory health and longevity, grew greater than four times, to $272,049 in Q2 2018 from $66,237 in Q2 2017. Revenues for the six-months ended June 30, 2018 also grew strongly to $585,359 from $174,227 for the same period the year prior. These results mainly reflect sales to GNC propelled by the strong sell-through rate of ZanthoSyn® in Hawaii and also an accelerating sales trend in California, Nevada, and New York.

Cardax, Inc. (CDXI), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.195, even for the day, on 12,500 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 16,975 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.17/$0.34.

OTC Markets, 4 Traders, ProcativeInvestors, and MarketWatch reported on Liberty One Lithium Corp. (LRTTF), and we also highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Liberty One Lithium Corp. is a developing exploration company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. It focuses on the acquisition and development of high grade lithium brine deposits. Lithium is an important component of batteries, which power everything from cars to smartphones, laptops, and power tools. The Company sees lithium as an opportunity to participate in the diversification and continued growth (and protection) of a strong international energy policy. Liberty One Lithium lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

The Company’s initial prospects are in Argentina’s “Lithium Triangle” and Utah’s Paradox Basin. They are situated in historic sources of high grade lithium-bearing brines. Historic resource indicates potential to produce large volumes of brine on-site.

In Argentina, Liberty One Lithium’s Pocitos West prospect comprises more than 39,000 acres (15,857 Ha) in the middle of the well-known lithium triangle. It is in the Pocitos Salar, Los Andes Department, Western Salta Province, Argentina.

In Utah, the Company’s North Paradox property comprises 233 placer claims covering 4,480 acres located upon the Paradox Basin in Grand County, Utah, 15 kilometers west of the town of Moab, in southeastern Utah.

In June of 2017, Liberty One Lithium announced the closing of a mineral option and joint venture (JV) agreement with Millennial Lithium Corp. (Vancouver, British Columbia). The agreement grants Liberty One Lithium the sole and exclusive right and option to acquire up to an 80 percent undivided beneficial right, title, and interest in the Pocitos West project in Argentina.

In mid-December 2017, Liberty One Lithium announced the activation of plans to speed up activities at the Company’s flagship "North Paradox" property in Grand County, Utah. The presence of the Cane Creek mine immediately southeast of Liberty One Lithium’s property that has been producing potash for more than 45 years demonstrates the efficacy of production processes alike to those envisaged for the mining of lithium in the area.

Liberty One Lithium earlier affirmed 2018 plans to start an evaluation of its promising “North Paradox” property within the Paradox Basin in Grand County, Utah. Log data at the Utah Geological Survey library indicates the area appears rich with supersaturated brines. In addition, nearby long-term mine operations effectively demonstrate the climatic efficacy for traditional evaporative production processes.

Alltemp, Inc. (LTMP)

InvestorsHub and Seeking Alpha reported previously on Alltemp, Inc. (LTMP), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Alltemp, Inc. is a developer of proprietary, environmentally-friendly, refrigerant technologies. It has developed a proprietary refrigerant technology, named alltemp®. This is a proven replacement for numerous global refrigerants, which have adversely affected the global environment. Alltemp is headquartered in Westlake Village, California. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

On April 27, 2017, Alltemp announced the closing of its merger with CSES Group, Inc. Source Financial, Inc. changed its name to Alltemp, Inc. and completed the merger with CSES Group.

alltemp® is the Company’s solution for the replacement of R-407c, R-134a, R-404a, and HCFC-22, known as R-22, but which is rapidly being phased out in all developed nations because of environmental concerns over its strong effect on the depletion of the Earth's ozone layer. alltemp®’s refrigerants are for the commercial and residential markets.

alltemp® refrigerants have wide-ranging applications. These range from Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), to refrigeration and foam insulation, to industrial solvents.

alltemp® solutions provides a sustainable, eco-friendly, true drop-in refrigerant. It meets the Montreal/Kyoto Protocols and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) standards with the lowest Global Warming Potential for any non-flammable HFC. alltemp® yields a 27 percent average decrease in kWh, without loss in capacity.

Alltemp has successfully completed two years of early adopter testing of its alltemp® refrigerant at a number of Fortune 100 companies' facilities for its Montreal and Kyoto Protocol compliant refrigerant. Also, the test results revealed that alltemp® yielded considerable average savings in energy consumption. This is while maintaining capacity.

This past November, Alltemp announced results of a corrosion study, comparing the efficacy of alltemp® refrigerant versus R-134a refrigerant. Alltemp engaged Intertek to perform ANSI/ASHRAE 97 testing on alltemp®. Key data shows that alltemp® lessens corrosion in comparison to conventional refrigerants.

In January 2018, Alltemp announced that it released a new refrigerant alternative for R-404A applications called alltemp® 4. This is a drop-in refrigerant. R-404A has one of the highest GWPs (Global Warming Potential) of any HFC refrigerants. It is quickly being phased out in the European Union (EU) and also other developed countries.

This month, Alltemp announced that flashpoint chamber testing conducted by DEKRA Insight confirmed that alltemp® refrigerant has zero flammability. A minimum of 20 different chamber tests in the liquid phase and 20 vapor phase tests, with temperatures as high as 60º C = 140º F, revealed zero flammability and no ignition with alltemp® refrigerant. This week, Alltemp announced that Applied Research Laboratories (ARL) testing confirmed that alltemp® refrigerants outperformed six different major refrigerants - MO-99, Nu22, 407c, R-404a, 134a, 448a(M40).

ARL conducted testing, in accordance with AHRI 210/240 standards, on a 1/2hp walk-in system for refrigeration, a 2-ton split system for HVAC, and a 4-ton split system for HVAC using alltemp®, MO-99, Nu22, 407c, R-404a, 134a, and 448a(M40).

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

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

The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. (TSX: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, 7ACRES, has obtained Health Canada approval for six additional flowering rooms totaling 60,000 sqft of additional production space at its facility in Kincardine, Ontario. Also today, the company was featured in the Venture Breakfast Bits, by 24/7 Market News.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”

Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.

In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.

“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”

The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.

Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.

7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.

Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.

Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.

To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.

Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF), closed the day's trading session at $1.69925, up 1.75%, on 625,848 volume with 681 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 595,220 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.04.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF).

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSXV: VIVO, OTCQB: VVCIF) ("VIVO" or the "Company") today announced the commencement of the Company's observational study on the use of cannabinoids as therapy for chronic pain (the "Study"). Also today, the company announced that wholly-owned subsidiary, ABcann Medicinals Inc., has received approval from Health Canada to begin cultivation in the expansion of its Vanluven Road facility in Napanee, resulting in a doubling of the Company's Ontario cultivation capacity. Cultivation in the expanded area will commence immediately. Additionally, the company was featured in the Venture Breakfast Bits, by 24/7 Market News.

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 $0.8353, up 11.67%, on 566,628 volume with 276 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 380,345 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.413/$1.71.

Also today, the company was highlighted in an article looking at how Nightfood’s new ice cream was formulated by sleep and nutrition experts to be sleep-friendly. This means eliminating or minimizing things that are sleep disruptive (excess fat, excess sugar, excess calories) and adding in minerals, amino acids and enzymes that research indicates can support better sleep.

Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), a pioneering consumer goods brand development company headquartered in Tarrytown, New York, owns Nightfood, Inc., creator of delicious, award-winning and better-for-you ice cream formulated by sleep and nutrition experts, and its wholly owned subsidiary MJ Munchies, Inc., which seeks to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. Known as “The Nighttime Snack Company,” Nightfood Inc. is focused on improving the late-night snacking choices of consumers while solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem.

Nightfood Ice Cream

Nightfood’s higher-protein and sleep-friendly ice cream won the 2019 Product of the Year Award in a survey of over 40,000 consumers. The annual Product of the Year survey, the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, is conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research. In beating out the other finalists, consumers indicated that Nightfood’s one-of-a-kind innovation and unique value proposition made it a clear-cut winner in the ice cream space and a brand they were highly motivated to try. Winners of the 32-year-old award have been shown to outperform category sales performance by over 38 percent.

Less than two months since manufacturing their first pint of ice cream, Nightfood has now secured distribution in more than 13 states, and has received extensive media coverage from outlets such as USA Today, Fox Business’ Mornings With Maria, Parents Magazine, The Food Network, MarketWatch, The Washington Post, Business Insider, Bustle, and more.

With the Product of the Year award and millions in media coverage, Management has publicly stated their goal of securing nationwide distribution in over 10,000 retail outlets by March 31, 2020.

The addition of certain minerals, enzymes and amino acids, which research suggests can support sleep quality, is another bonus. Nightfood only uses hormone-free milk, is certified Kosher, and offers eight original flavors, five of which are gluten-free. Nightfood ice cream also uses all-natural sweeteners with no Erythritol, no sucralose, or other artificial sweeteners.

More than 37,000 consumers across the country have already requested coupons for the company’s newly launched Nightfood ice cream by entering a giveaway hosted at NightfoodIceCream.com which includes a chance to win a one-year supply (96 pints) plus a freezer for storage. The coupon program is being run in conjunction with PromotionPod, which has previously conducted successful campaigns for brands such as Chobani, Halo Top, and BodyArmor.

A distribution agreement with New England Ice Cream Corporation (NEIC) will also place Nightfood ice cream in outlets located throughout Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

According to IRI Worldwide, 44 percent of all snack consumption occurs between dinner and bedtime, representing a consumer spend of over $1 billion weekly on nighttime snacks in the U.S. alone. Market research giant Mintel recently released a report identifying nighttime specific food and beverages as one of their most “compelling and category changing” trends for 2017 and beyond.

Nightfood has developed a dynamic infographic resource that clearly illustrates the size and scope of the largely untapped nighttime snack category (http://NightSnacking.com). Americans everywhere are likely to identify with the infographic’s results that vividly illustrate late night snacking by age group, popular snack choice, and amount of money spent each week on feeding after-hour snack attacks. Available in eight delicious flavors, Nightfood ice cream can help consumers satisfy nighttime cravings in a better, healthier, more sleep-friendly way.

MJ Munchies, Inc.

MJ Munchies, Inc., was formed in 2018 as a new, wholly owned subsidiary of Nightfood Holdings, Inc. to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. The Company intends to market some of these new products under the trademarked brand name “Half-Baked” and has entered into a Letter of Intent that allows Global Consortium Inc. (OTC: GCGX) subsidiary Infused Edibles to receive an exclusive license to manufacture and distribute marijuana and CBD-infused products under the Half-Baked brand.

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Phivida Holdings Inc. (PHVAF).

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTCQX: PHVAF) today announces its placement in an editorial published by CannabisNewsWire ("CNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities in the cannabis industry. To view the full publication, titled “CBD Beverages – Possible Next Big Disruptor in the Drinks Industry,” visit: http://cnw.fm/Ww8vG.

Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with operations in San Diego, Calif., Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF)  is a premium food and beverage company that focuses on whole plant nutrition and natural ingredients that help best maintain overall health and balance in the human body. The company infuses active hemp into a variety of premium foods, beverages and supplements and is poised for global distribution. Phivida is guided by a team of Fortune 500-caliber executives focused on a new strategic portfolio of products and brands, comprehensive consumer research, new product and brand development, improved visual identity and packaging design, and a strong distribution strategy.

The company’s mission is to become a leader in whole plant solutions by providing holistic remedies for a more natural alternative to pharmaceuticals and by guiding people toward a healthy lifestyle. Phivida embraces and celebrates a return to organic, natural, plant-based foods and beverages and a focus on holistic health and wellness.

Publicly traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE: VIDA) and the OTCQX Best Market in the U.S. (OTC: PHVAF), the company’s strong balance sheet carries CAD$13 million with no debt or loans with ~60 million shares outstanding, and the company is now well-capitalized to fund major mainstream distribution with a solid structure that is poised for long-term growth.

Management

Phivida’s management team includes president and CEO Jim Bailey, former president of Red Bull Canada and global chief marketing officer for Merrell Outdoors; Chief Marketing Officer Michael Cornwell, former chief marketing officer for Samsung New Zealand and the former director of marketing for Red Bull Canada; and Doug Campbell, former director of sales for Red Bull North America, who, as Phivida’s chief commercial officer, is tasked with driving new sales revenue growth.

The Science

Using encapsulation technology, Phivida uses full spectrum CBD-hemp oil (rich in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids) converted into a water-soluble delivery format, which enhances delivery and absorption of the cannabinoids into the human body – up to an estimated tenfold.

The whole plant hemp extract is infused into functional beverages, food and supplements to target a range of health and wellness conditions. Phivida strives to lead the industry in product quality through high-quality ingredients and best-in-class testing. The Company has partnered with Flora Labs to test and ensure consistency and potency of all products. Flora Labs is a world-class testing lab with stringent QA and QC quality assessment protocols and will provide Phivida with ongoing impartial quality testing.

Regulations

Federally legal under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD from hemp oil is a rapid growth market across the U.S. When derived from marijuana, CBD remains a schedule 1 controlled substance, giving hemp-derived CBD oil-infused products a competitive advantage on regulations. On June 28, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (i.e. the “Farm Bill), lifting the U.S. Industrial Hemp laws to an agricultural commodity status and effectively removing hemp from the controlled substance list.

Earlier this year, another milestone court ruling also provided significant regulatory support for the U.S. CBD-hemp sector. In February 2018, the Supreme Court presided over the HIA (Hemp Industry Association) vs. DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in a class-action suit concerning the issue of CBD extracted from hemp and the legality of industrial hemp. In the final ruling, the Supreme Court unequivocally determined that hemp (and its derivatives), when produced domestically under the Farm Bill, are not a controlled substance.

The Supreme Court ruling also found the Farm Bill (as it relates to hemp) “pre-empts” the Controlled Substances Act. Congress has since exempted Farm Bill hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), giving the Farm Bill primary jurisdiction over the governance of the CBD-hemp oil industry in the U.S.

The DEA further conceded it does not “seek to control cannabinoids” and that only marijuana-derived cannabinoids are governed under the Controlled Substances Act. In May of 2018, the DEA issued a formal directive to all federal agencies (e.g., U.S. Customs and Border Patrol) stating that cannabinoids are not controlled substances unless derived from marijuana, and that the “mere presence of cannabinoids” in any product or derivative does not render it a controlled substance. The Supreme Court ruling also resulted in the mediation of a settlement in what is now the third successful HIA vs. DEA suit in over a decade.

In Canada, the Senate approval of Bill C-45 legalized the production, distribution and use of recreational cannabis, with edibles to be added in 2019. The bill officially became law as of Oct. 17, 2018, creating a legal framework for the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada including cannabinoid-infused beverages.

The larger corporate locale provides space for a growing customer service department, product fulfillment, opportunity and training rooms, as well as a video production suite.

“The opportunity to expand to the rest of this new building over the course of the next six to 12 months ensures we won’t have to move again anytime soon,” Sharing Services Inc. Chairman Robert Oblon said. “We are on track for very significant growth here in the U.S., as well as upcoming international expansion, so this move is in preparation for what’s in front of us.”

“The enthusiasm of our attendees and the early success that we are experiencing is incredible considering our growth has been 100 percent organic, with almost no marketing from the company,” Oblon said. “I’m speechless by the dedication of our Elepreneur leaders and their entire teams, as they share our incredible line of products that have helped so many people.”

Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (OTCQB: PCRCF).

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (FRANKFURT: NXFE) today provides Cyclops, nickel/cobalt project development update, next steps and battery metals market commentary.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE) is a Canada-based exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of production-grade cobalt deposits, a key raw material input for the growing lithium-ion battery industry.

Pacific Rim Cobalt and its Cyclops Nickel-Cobalt Project, located in the Depapre District, Jayapura Regency, Papua Province, Republic of Indonesia, is uniquely positioned in a region with potentially the largest source of cobalt outside of Africa. Strategically located near China, the world’s largest cobalt buyer, the Cyclops Project is a laterite (iron-hosted) mineral prospect, rich in cobalt and nickel. Cobalt consumption in China is on-track to use over 8,000 tonnes of cobalt annually by 2021 for electric vehicle production alone and is projected to remain the world’s largest cobalt consumer for many years to come.

Global demand for renewable power is fueling a massive shift from traditional energy supply chain economics to cobalt-reliant lithium-ion batteries, the world’s most widely used power source for portable applications such as electric vehicles and other high-tech applications.

Pacific Rim Cobalt management has concluded that strategic access to major markets offers the most important factor to servicing the rising demand for cobalt. The company’s acquisition of its initial asset in Indonesia offers near surface, strong nickel-cobalt mineralization in an area with excellent infrastructure including a nearby workforce, supplies, sealed roads, ocean access, nearby port facility and gentle topography. The project area, nestled on the north coast of Papua, Indonesia, establishes Pacific Rim Cobalt well within the economically attractive ocean-going transportation range to Asia and its lucrative, growing industrial markets.

Exploration efforts are currently focused on establishing a maiden compliant resource for the Cyclops project, both in historically identified and drill-tested prospects as well as previously unexplored areas of the claims. During the first nine months of 2018, the company focused on assembling the necessary agreements to access northern areas of the project hosting historically identified mineralized zones. Mapping, sampling and a mini-bulk sample within the mineralized zones has been completed, along with a small-scale program in the previously unexplored far southern area of the project. With surface access to priority targets now established, Pacific Rim Cobalt will initiate drilling and extract additional mini-bulk samples for further metallurgical testing.

“We are excited and optimistic about the unique possibility of developing this project into an asset that will add shareholder value and position the company to play a future role in the battery metals supply chain,” Pacific Rim Cobalt CEO Ranjeet Sundher recently stated (http://nnw.fm/u1HNs). “We expect the near-surface nature of cobalt/nickel mineralization at the Cyclops project will lend itself well to low-cost, logistically straightforward drilling. We thus anticipate the opportunity to undertake a resource calculation study, as well as ongoing metallurgy and process option testing, will present itself in the near future. It’s going to be a busy year ahead, and we look forward to getting the drills turning and building value.”

Pacific Rim Cobalt’s world-class management team includes Sundher, who has over 20 years of capital markets experience. Sundher is also president of Canrim Ventures Ltd., a Singaporean advisory firm specializing in early stage project finance and structure. He previously founded Indogold Exploration, a Jakarta-based mining service firm, and has raised over $40 million for companies in which he was a founder/partner.

Chief Financial Officer Steve Vanry has 25 years of professional experience in senior management positions with public and private natural resources companies, providing expertise in capital markets corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, accounting and financial reporting.

Andre Talaska serves as country manager and technical supervisor. He has over 30 years of experience in the mining and exploration industry and has held senior positions with several companies in Australia and southeast Asia. Shakir Juffry, business development/engineering, is a chemical engineer and extractive metallurgist by background training who has over 20 years of experience in the Indonesian mining and minerals exploration field. Toto Suarto Sajali, operation and development manager, is a mining engineer with over 15 years of experience in Indonesian project assessment, development and operations.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (OTCQB: PCRCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2033, up 9.13%, on 87,325 volume with 21 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 29,081 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0701/$0.469.

To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/ry0U3. To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/In8IB. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article examining how, although CBD-based products have been commercially available in the UK for some time, they appear to be gaining greater mainstream use and acceptance, as big-name companies invest increasing amounts of money in the development of CBD-based products.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential.

Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.

Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.

Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.

Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.

Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.

Sugarmade division CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30-40 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.

Management

CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation. He is also the founder of CarryOutSupplies.com, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.

Arman Tabatabaei serves as operations consultant, providing high-level, day-to-day strategic guidance and tactical operational supervision for all aspects of the corporation’s business.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA).

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, hempSMART, Ltd., a corporation organized in the United Kingdom, will officially launch the Company’s industrial hemp CBD formulated hempSMART™ products in the United Kingdom during the Company’s March 23, 2019, launch event in London. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article examining how, although CBD-based products have been commercially available in the UK for some time, they appear to be gaining greater mainstream use and acceptance, as big-name companies invest increasing amounts of money in the development of CBD-based products.

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.

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

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

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSXV: SLL) (OTCQX: STLHF) (FRA: S5L) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal offering (the “Offering”), including the partial exercise of the over-allotment option. A total of 11,390,500 units (the “Units”) of the Company were issued at a price of $1.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of $11,390,500. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Market Opportunity

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

Leadership

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

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

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

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

Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $0.6687, off by 4.47%, on 88,437 volume with 74 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 53,116 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.59/$1.56.
