(NEIK), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Northstar Electronics, Inc. works in the aviation, defense, and marine industries. The OTCQB-listed Company has a wide-ranging history of developing and manufacturing defense and commercial electronic and mechanical systems. Established in the late 1990’s, Northstar Electronics is headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Northstar Electronics’ subsidiary is Northstar Sealand Enterprises Ltd. (NSEL).
The Company carried out design and manufacturing contracts for diverse divisions of Lockheed Martin Corp. Additionally, Northstar designed, manufactured, and sold its own sonar-based system to commercial customers.
Northstar Electronics has moved towards making and selling its own independent systems, since the end of the aforementioned contracts. At present, the Company is undergoing restructuring to move forward with a renewed emphasis on the development of a new aviation business and also carry out work to develop unique sonar systems.
Subsidiary NSEL is jointly owned by Northstar Electronics and Sealand Aviation Ltd. Both companies have many years of experience in working with certified commercial aircraft and government military contracts. NSEL is working to acquire the global rights to a “Turbo-Prop” single engine industrial airplane from an international leader in the aerospace industry. The timeline for the final agreement with the subsidiary company that owns the rights to the airplane has been extended.
The chief applications for the airplane are in “Agriculture and Rapid Response Forest Fire Fighting (RRFFF).” NSEL is continuing its evaluation of the “Cloud Seeding” market. Moreover, Northstar sees substantial potential in the field of Counter Insurgency (COIN). Company Management is exploring future possibilities in this sector.
Northstar Electronics is moving ahead with its expansion from being an aerospace contract manufacturer to becoming an “Original Equipment Manufacturer” (OEM) with its own products. The Company made significant progress in the purchase of the worldwide rights to a single engine “Turbo Prop” airplane from a major overseas aerospace company.
Last week, Northstar Electronics provided an update to its shareholders on an important milestone achieved by its subsidiary, Northstar Sealand Enterprises Ltd. (NSEL), on a major acquisition. Northstar Electronics and NSEL have been working closely with a major international Aerospace Company with the goal to acquire the international rights and IP (Intellectual Property) for a high-performance Turbo-Prop industrial aircraft.
The Aerospace Company recently presented the main details of this complex transaction to the Canadian government’s Industry, Science and Education Department (ISED). The plan was met with positive and enthusiastic feedback from the department’s representatives.
This confirmation of interest in the transaction, and its eligibility for considerable “Offset” credits under ISED’s Industry Trade and Benefits program, will now accelerate the planned transaction through the Aerospace Company’s internal review processes. Northstar Electronics is moving ahead with its plans to provide financial support for the endeavour. The Company is aligning key investors and financial instruments. NSEL continues its pre-sales efforts and its preparations for a fast and efficient ramp-up to production.

Alltemp, Inc. (LTMP)
MissionIR, Stock Communications Group, Dividend Investor, 4-Traders, InvestorsHub, GuruFocus, The Street, Investors Hangout, Barchart, StockInvest, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, Morningstar, Wallet Investor, Market Screener, and Capital Cube reported earlier on Alltemp, Inc. (LTMP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Alltemp, Inc. is a developer of proprietary, environmentally-friendly, refrigerant technologies. The Company has developed a proprietary refrigerant technology, called alltemp®. This is a proven replacement for many global refrigerants that have adversely affected the worldwide environment. Alltemp is based in Westlake Village, California.
alltemp®’s refrigerants are for the commercial and residential markets. 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 quickly 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® refrigerants have broad applications. These range from Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), to refrigeration and foam insulation, to industrial solvents. alltemp® solutions provide 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 successfully completed two years of early adopter testing of its alltemp® refrigerant at several Fortune 100 companies' facilities for its Montreal and Kyoto Protocol compliant refrigerant. Furthermore, test results revealed that alltemp® yielded significant average savings in energy consumption. This is while maintaining capacity.
Alltemp announced in January 2018 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 other developed countries.
Alltemp announced in March 2018 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.
Alltemp has its R-410A replacement refrigerant, designated alltemp® H. Like the Company’s other refrigerants, alltemp® H is engineered to use the same anti-corrosive and non-flammable alltemp® core technology that provides major energy efficiencies and meets ASHRAE A1 safety classification standards.
R-410A was designed to replace R-22, which has a substantial environmental impact and Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP). The lower the GWP value, the better the refrigerant is for the environment. R-410A has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) rating of 2,088. Its predecessor R-22 has a GWP rating of 1700.
Alltemp, Inc. (LTMP), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.056, up 17.83%, on 96,100 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 84,069 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0399/$0.34.

In 2017, Centerra Gold produced 785,316 ounces of gold and 53.6 million pounds of copper. The Kumtor Mine in the Kyrgyz Republic has produced greater than 11.5 million ounces of gold between 1997 and the end of 2017.
The Mount Milligan Mine in British Columbia is a long life, low-cost gold/copper mine. The Company’s assets also include the former Boroo Mine in Mongolia that produced more than 1.8 million ounces of gold from 2004 to 2016. It is now in care and maintenance waiting for the development of the Gatsuurt Project.
Centerra Gold’s assets also include the late stage Kemess development project in British Columbia, and the Greenstone development project in the Province of Ontario.

Tonogold Resources, Inc. (TNGL)
PennyFix, 24hGold, StreetInsider, Simply Wall St, InvestorsHub, Stockhouse, 4-Traders, OTC Markets, and WalletInvestor reported on Tonogold Resources, Inc. (TNGL), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
A leading junior mining company, Tonogold Resources, Inc. concentrates on developing advanced stage projects in the Americas. The Company’s management team has over six decades of combined experience in the mining space. Tonogold Resources’ commitment is to consolidating a 5 Million Gold Oz portfolio in combined resources in the short term as well as reaching production stage on its flag-ship project in the United States.
Tonogold Resources has its head office in La Jolla, California. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
In October of 2017, Tonogold Resources announced that it entered into a binding agreement with Comstock Mining, Inc. (LODE), which among other things, provides Tonogold Resources an exclusive right to earn a 51 percent controlling interest in 1,162 acres of mining claims in the highly prospective Comstock Lode area in Virginia City, Nevada. This includes the Lucerne Deposit, positioned in the Storey and Lyon Counties.
In January 2018, Tonogold Resources announced that it entered into a binding agreement with a private Mexican company, which provides Tonogold an exclusive right (but not obligation) to acquire 100 percent interest in the Claudia, Promontorio, and Montoros gold/silver properties in Durango, Mexico for total consideration of $7.3 million in cash.
This acquisition potentially adds high quality gold-silver advanced exploration projects to the Company’s pipeline in a safe and recognized mining-friendly and cost competitive jurisdiction. Highlights of this acquisition also include a low cost option fee and attractive acquisition value per gold equivalent ounce based on the historical resources.
Earlier this month, Tonogold Resources announced that it entered into the second phase of its option agreement with Comstock Mining and recently paid the scheduled $2 million to Comstock, pursuant to the agreement dated October 3, 2017. The decision by Tonogold follows a detailed six-month technical and economic assessment of the Lucerne deposit by the Company’s technical consultants, Mine Development Associates (MDA), of Reno, Nevada, which included the development of a new resource model.
Currently, the resource and preliminary economic pit design work completed by MDA has provided Tonogold Resources with confirmation that the resource at Lucerne is likely to support a technically and economically viable mining operation. However, more data validation and verification will be required before MDA are able to provide Resource and Reserve estimates suitable for production planning and public reporting.
Tonogold Resources, Inc. (TNGL), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.1505, off by 16.39%, on 2,100 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 19,398 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.003/$0.2458.

(BFGC), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Bullfrog Gold Corp. is a mineral exploration company listed on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB. The Company has a strong asset portfolio with large prospective gold exploration projects located in productive mining districts within the south-western United States. Bullfrog Gold principally explores for gold, silver, and other metals. Bullfrog Gold has its head office in Grand Junction, Colorado.
The Company has its Bullfrog Project. The Bullfrog Project is approximately three miles northwest of the town of Beatty and 116 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. The Bullfrog Gold Project is in the prolific Walker Trend. Barrick Gold Corp. produced 2.1 million ounces of gold during the 1990’s from the main Bullfrog open pit, the northern one third of which is presently controlled by Bullfrog Gold.
In addition, Bullfrog Gold's lands include the entire Montgomery-Shoshone (M-S) deposit, from which Barrick produced an additional 220,000 ounces of gold. Additionally, the M-S area produced 70,000 ounces averaging 0.47 gold ounce per ton from underground mining operations in the early 1900's.
Bullfrog Gold executed an option in October 2014 to purchase 12 strategic patented claims situated contiguous to its lands and that include the north-east half of the M-S open pit mine. In March of 2015, the Company exercised a lease/option to purchase 6 patented claims, 20 unpatented claims, and 8 mill site claims from Barrick Bullfrog, Inc.
The M-S and Bullfrog deposits are amenable to heap leaching. They can support a mine cut-off grade of 0.2 g/t for leaching at coarse ROM sizes. Bullfrog Gold announced in June 2017 a base case, maiden resource estimate of 525,000 ounces of gold averaging 1.02 g/t on its Bullfrog Gold Project.
Bullfrog Gold announced in July 2017 the leasing of an additional 24 patented mining claims and the staking of 62 new mining claims at its Bullfrog Gold Project. The new lands may permit more expansions to the Montgomery-Shoshone (M-S) and Bullfrog open pit mines, have a number of worthy exploration targets, and provide more sites for heap leach pads and other project facilities.
This past August, Bullfrog Gold announced that Tetra Tech, Inc.'s NI 43-101 resource report on the Bullfrog Gold Project was posted on the website www.bullfroggold.com. The results of the report were released on June 27, 2017.
The results included measured and indicated (M&I) resource estimates of 525,000 ounces averaging 1.02 g/t using a gold price of $1200/oz and a base case cutoff grade of 0.36 g/t. Inferred resources were estimated at 120,000 ounces of gold averaging 1.20 g/t. The estimates are supported by a database, which includes 1,262 holes containing 155 miles of coring and drilling.
Bullfrog Gold Corp. (BFGC), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.13415, up 2.40%, on 81,000 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 70,133 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.035/$0.1799.
SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV)
Marketbeat.com, RedChip, TopPennyStockMover, SmallCapVoice, PennyStocks24, OTC Stock Review, Penny Stock Rumble, Streetwise Reports, The Green Baron, Greenbackers, OTCJournal, FeedBlitz, AllPennyStocks, OTC Stock Review, Explicit Penny Picks, Free Investment Report, Free Penny Alerts, Gladiator Stocks, InsidersLab, KillerPennyStocks, and Ox of Wallstreet reported on SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
SANUWAVE Health, Inc. is a shock wave technology business. Its initial focus is on the development and commercialization of patented non-invasive, biological response activating devices for the repair and regeneration of skin, musculoskeletal tissue, and vascular structures. SANUWAVE Health researches, designs, manufactures, markets and services its products internationally. SANUWAVE Health is headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia.
The Company applies its patented Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression (PACE®) technology in wound healing, orthopedic/spine, plastic/cosmetic, and cardiac conditions. Its portfolio of regenerative medicine products and product candidates activate biologic signaling and angiogenic responses. This produces new vascularization and microcirculatory improvement. This helps in restoring the body's normal healing processes and leads to regeneration of tissue.
SANUWAVE’s lead product candidate for the global wound care market, dermaPACE®, is CE marked across Europe. It has Canada, Australia, and New Zealand device license approval for the treatment of skin and subcutaneous soft tissue. In the U.S., dermaPACE is now under the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) de novo petition review process for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Diabetic foot ulcer treatment additionally has approval in South Korea.
SANUWAVE’s belief is that it has demonstrated that its technology is safe and effective in stimulating healing in chronic conditions of the foot (plantar fasciitis) and the elbow (lateral epicondylitis) via its U.S. Class III PMA approved OssaTron® device, and also stimulating bone and chronic tendonitis regeneration in the musculoskeletal environment through the use of its OssaTron, Evotron® and orthoPACE® devices in Europe, Asia, and Asia/Pacific. Moreover, there are license/partnership opportunities for the Company’s shock wave technology for non-medical uses. This includes energy, water, food, and industrial markets.
In December of 2016, SANUWAVE Health announced that it, in partnership with Ortho-Medico, a member of B&Co, Herzele, Belgium, is sponsoring ongoing clinical investigation on diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). The trial will be conducted by the VUB (Free University of Brussels) and UZ Brussel (University Hospital).
Previous work in 2015 at this hospital found that DFU patients, treated in-home with the dermaPACE system, responded positively to the treatment. The trial will take the home-care procedures, used in a limited basis, and extend them to a randomized, controlled trial of 100 subjects. The intention of the trial is to compare the effectiveness of in-home treatment of DFUs utilizing dermaPACE versus in-home treatment of DFUs using standard of care only. The trial will help to provide evidence that dermaPACE can be used outside the clinical setting and increase the potential for increased sales in Europe.
In February 2017, SANUWAVE Health announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued SANUWAVE patent number 9,566,209 titled "Shock Wave Electrodes with Fluid Holes", which has an expiration date on June 21, 2033. The patent relates to a new construction of the spark gap electrodes employed to generate acoustic pressure shock waves in the Company’s devices that allows a longer useful life for the applicators.
Recently, SANUWAVE Health announced that it is entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with eKare, Inc. This is to develop novel wound care analysis and management solutions. Linking SANUWAVE's dermaPACE® wound treatment device with eKare's inSight® 3D wound imaging and analytics system, the two companies will work to produce the industry's most complete wound management solution. eKare’s commitment is to the design and development of wound assessment solutions utilizing the most contemporary machine intelligence, computer-vision, as well as mobile technology.
SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.22, up 7.32%, on 553,748 volume with 142 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 132,125 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1353/$0.642.

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF)
Canadian licensed producer of premium cannabis products The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF) is releasing its fourth quarter 2018 results on Thursday, April 4, 2019, as the company announced in a press release (http://nnw.fm/D4t4J). The results will be released via a conference call and webcast after the close of the financial markets. NOTE TO INVESTORS: The latest news and updates relating to FLPWF are available in the company’s newsroom at http://nnw.fm/FLPWF.
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF), a Health Canada Licensed Producer (LP) of cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), is an emerging Canadian cannabis leader founded by Medreleaf co-founder Tom Flow and a team of industry pioneers, successful start-up executives and top industry scientists. Flowr’s purpose-built cultivation facilities may be the most advanced in the industry, consistently generating high crop yields, delivering premium and ultra-premium cannabis products, and maximizing return on investment. The company also may be an R&D leader as it was selected by the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company as its exclusive Canadian cannabis R&D partner.
Flowr’s flagship facility, an 84,000-square-foot campus on seven acres in Kelowna, British Columbia, is engineered to grow premium cannabis in rooms that meet pharmaceutical industry production standards for cleanliness. This, along with exacting protocols designed by the Flowr team, enables Flowr to grow cannabis that meets Health Canada’s stringent standards without treating it with the taste- and smell-killing gamma irradiation that most other producers have to use to clean their product. Irradiating the plant – a process similar to pasteurizing food – impairs many of the important terpenes that provide the positive effects, flavors and scents of cannabis while strengthening unpleasant terpenes. Flowr’s products may deliver a better user experience, thus commanding premium prices.
Flowr’s cultivation facilities, built with proprietary, patent-pending systems, are designed to deliver yields targeted at 450 grams per square foot by the end of 2022, which is three times more efficient than the industry average of approximately 150 grams per square foot. By optimizing yield, the Company may produce significantly more cannabis flower on a smaller footprint than other producers, thus generating far high revenue per square foot and keeping costs much lower, leading to higher margins. The Kelowna facility is presently 20 percent operational with the remaining 80 percent slated to come online by early 2019. It is expected to produce up to 14,000 kg of premium, non-irradiated cannabis flower in 2019. With further enhanced yields and planned expansion of production facilities on the campus, Flowr will reach a total capacity of 60,000 kg annually in 2022.
Leading Flowr’s cultivation program is industry pioneer, company co-founder and Flowr president Tom Flow. Flow is widely recognized for his cannabis thought leadership and expertise building and operating cannabis cultivation facilities. Flow also co-founded MedReleaf and designed, built and set up SOPs for their flagship Marcum cultivation facility. Marcum has continued to be perhaps the most productive facility in the country prior to the Flowr flagship facility. Long one of Canada’s most efficient and profitable LPs, MedReleaf was acquired by Aurora for approximately C$3 billion. Flow and his team have designed and built a total of 17 cultivation facilities and secured three producer’s licenses under various Canadian regulatory regimes.
In March 2018, Flowr and the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company – a world leader in lawn and garden products – announced an exclusive strategic R&D alliance. After evaluating numerous Canadian LPs, Hawthorne chose to partner with Flowr based on the experience and expertise of the company’s cultivation and R&D teams and the company’s advanced growing capabilities.
Hawthorne will fund the construction of a 50,000-square-foot R&D facility that is integrated into Flowr’s Kelowna campus. This facility is North America’s first dedicated cannabis R&D facility focused on advancing cultivation techniques and systems. The facility will support researchers from both organizations and combine laboratories, indoor and greenhouse grow suites, training areas and genetics breeding areas in a single building. It is expected to open in early 2019. In addition to helping Flowr maintain its competitive advantage in cultivation, the company’s R&D program will keep it on the cutting edge of cannabis innovation.
Flowr is entering the market with three different brands to meet the growing demand for premium, non-irradiated cannabis in the medicinal and adult use markets:
- FlowrRx, featuring premium quality medicinal cannabis that enables patients to live better, fuller lives. A dedicated Client Services team will provide patients with personalized support while an R&D team develops innovative flower strains and premium products targeted to specific conditions. Patient well-being is considered at every stage of the process – from genetic selection to harvest, trimming and curing techniques. FlowrRx and its team of passionate scientists and leading cultivation specialists are dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of cannabis.
- Flowr is the company’s premium recreational adult-use brand featuring an active, West Coast-inspired lifestyle for the cannabis connoisseur and enthusiast market. Through the continuous innovation of procedures and practices, Flowr’s talented team of experts is crafting premium products that deliver unparalleled experiences.
- Ace Valley, an exclusive partnership with top-selling Ontario craft beer company Ace Hill, will bring Flowr’s premium product to the millennial and casual adult-use markets under the Ace Valley brand.
Flowr recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, the province’s sole legal wholesaler of non-medical cannabis, to supply premium and ultra-premium flower to the province’s retail outlets. The company has agreements with several major medical distributors and is in discussions about retail distribution with additional provinces where it believes it can obtain prices commensurate with the quality of the Flowr products. The company is also evaluating other market opportunities including export.
Flowr is poised to become the pre-eminent indoor premium cannabis grower in Canada and one of the country’s top five LPs. The company’s focus on yield, quality and price point and its team’s ability to grow at scale should drive high margins, significant growth and strong return on investment.
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), closed the day's trading session at $6.03, up 1.34%, on 90,357 volume with 183 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 264,804 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.74/$8.42.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) was highlighted today in a publication from Investorideas.com looking at the Canadian cannabis landscape and the numerous companies ensuring not only a brick and mortar footprint, but also creating a significant online e-commerce presence as well.
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 $0.7281, up 1.39%, on 96,452 volume with 68 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 342,243 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.413/$1.52.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)
Sproutly Canada (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G), a Canadian-licensed producer (“LP”), recently acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market its patent-pending aqueous phytorecovery process (“APP”) technology. A recent article discussing the technology reads, “Fundamentally, Sproutly Canada is uniting advanced cannabis cultivation and transformational technologies to redefine the cannabis industry. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/Y8iWi.
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.
To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.
This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.
Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.
Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.
Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.
Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

At Robert Half, Dolo held the position of vice president for more than eight years, as well as other senior roles in both operations and sales. He also sits on an advisory committee and a board position for two nonprofits in Vancouver, BC.

He was awarded a PhD in biochemistry from Princeton University and is a former faculty member at the National Cancer Institute and Scripps Research Institute. Sen is the inventor on five U.S. patents and numerous international patents and patent-pending applications.
Chief Financial Officer Craig Loverock is a chartered professional accountant with over 20 years of experience in accounting and finance roles in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. He has extensive expertise in public company reporting and transactional experience, having served as the senior financial advisor to the chairman at Magna International and acting as chief compliance officer and CFO for a private equity firm.

Sharing Services Global Corporation (SHRG), headquartered in Plano, Texas, is a diversified holdings company focused on reshaping how entrepreneurs succeed today.

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 company recently signed a joint venture agreement with Health Wealth & Happiness Limited (“HWH”) to expand its “Elepreneurs” brand and market its products throughout Asia.

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.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
British Columbia-based company Quantum Minerals (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is engaged in the exploration and development of its flagship property, the Irgon Lithium Mine Project. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/1IN5n.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.
QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.
The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.
North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.
The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.
QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens, and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.
The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2041, up 7.82%, on 22,024 volume with 16 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 59,763 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.5122.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN)
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN, XETR: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced and upsized brokered private placement of units, generating aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$16.0 million.

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.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade Inc. (OTC:SGMD) 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, “Hemp Boom Leads to Cultivation Supply Shortages,” please visit: http://cnw.fm/In8IB.
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’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife. Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.
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.
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. He is an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting and profit and loss management.
Sugarmade specializes in growing and acquiring innovative brands to maximize value for company employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Sugarmade believes its future is very bright as the company expands operations within the cultivation sector and rapidly increases its revenue base. 6

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC PINK: REFG), a leading provider of regulatory-compliant financial services for state-sanctioned marijuana, today announced that it will open a customer service center to serve customers from its recently launched Go! payment system. Following the high response rates, the company will open the center ahead of schedule.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.
Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.
StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.
“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.029, off by 1.36%, on 1,751,289 volume with 64 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 953,350 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.008/$0.075.
