Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC)
InvestorsHub, Small Cap Exclusive, Marketbeat, Investors Hangout, Stockhouse, Insider Financial, StockNewsUnion, Stock Invest, InvestorPoint, and StocksTrade reported on Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. is an emerging growth coal technology business. It holds patented process technology and other intellectual property (IP), which converts raw coal into a cleaner burning fuel. The Company’s trademarked end products, "Pristine™" coals, are substantially more efficient, less polluting, more cost-effective, and provide more heat than untreated coal. Clean Coal Technologies is based in New York, New York.
The Company’s clean coal technology may reduce about 90 percent of chemical pollutants from coal. This includes Sulfur and Mercury. Therefore, this resolves emissions issues affecting coal-fired power plants. Its technology deals with the extraction of the volatiles in liquid form from lower ranking coals.
Upon the moisture being removed from the targeted coal, the liquid volatiles are used via an “absorption” process to fill the pores of the coal that have been dehydrated. More liquid volatiles are used by way of an adsorption process to coat the coal. The result is a major improvement in the coal ranking through increased caloric content (BTU’s), and a stable low moisture feedstock for power generation.
Clean Coal Technologies has its Pristine-SA technology. This is a development stage technology designed to eliminate 100 percent of the volatile material in feed coal. Additionally, the Company has its legacy technology, Pristine™. The design of it is to remove moisture and volatile matter (VM), as per client-specified requirements.
Clean Coal Technologies’ Pristine M technology is a patented, low-cost coal dehydration technology. The Pristine M process begins with the extraction of volatile material in liquid form from lower ranking coals.
This past January, Clean Coal Technologies announced that it appointed a Senior Representative and Advisor to the Company for the Indo-Pacific region. In addition, it announced that it was granted a divisional patent for its Pristine Technology in the People's Republic of China (PRC).
In March, Clean Coal Technologies announced that its forthcoming shareholder meeting will take place on April 30, 2018. Furthermore, the Company confirmed that its test facility has moved from the AES coal-fired power plant in Oklahoma to Wyoming.
Robin Eves, Clean Coal Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer & President, said, "We are pleased to confirm that our test facility operation at AES in Oklahoma is now completed and was successful. The facility has been moved to Wyoming where reassembly plans are underway. The reassembly will take into account significant input from the University of Wyoming that will help to showcase the many applications of our patented Technologies and will incorporate enhancements following the course of our latest schedule of tests .
Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (CCTC), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.09229, down 0.76%, on 205,341 volume with 27 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 147,230 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.073/$0.15.
Oncolix, Inc. (ONCX)
SmallCapVoice, Stockwatch, Dividend Investor, Investopedia, Barchart, Stockhouse, OTC Markets, Stockopedia, and InvestorsHub reported on Oncolix, Inc. (ONCX), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Oncolix, Inc. is developing Prolanta™ for the treatment of ovarian, uterine, breast, and other cancers. A clinical-stage biotechnology company, it has a US FDA-cleared (Food and Drug Administration) IND to commence human testing of Prolanta™ in its first indication, the treatment of ovarian cancer. The Phase 1 clinical trial is now in progress. Oncolix has its corporate headquarters in Houston, Texas.
Prolanta™ is a prolactin receptor antagonist (or blocker). It has demonstrated efficacy in xenograft models by way of a unique mechanism of action, autophagy. There is strong preclinical evidence Prolanta™ may be effective in breast, prostate, and other cancers, in addition to ovarian cancer.
Oncolix believes Prolanta™ has the opportunity to treat a wide array of human cancers. It states that there is substantial scientific evidence that human prolactin are associated with the growth of manifold cancers as well as the development of resistance to common chemotherapies. The Company believes Prolanta™ will be effective against numerous cancers as a stand-alone therapy and also as part of combination therapy.
Prolanta™ is undergoing evaluation in an open-label dose escalation Phase 1 clinical trial in patients with advanced ovarian cancer. Patients are divided into three dosing groups (cohorts). Each sequential cohort will evaluate a higher dose of Prolanta™. Patients will be evaluated over a 99-day period.
In the current Phase 1 dose-escalation safety trial for the treatment of ovarian cancer, so far there have been no observed serious adverse events. Furthermore, there have been no dose-limiting toxicities. The FDA has approved the designation of Prolanta™ as an Orphan Drug for the treatment of ovarian cancer.
At the end of January, Oncolix announced that it sponsored additional research with MD Anderson Cancer Center. The research will evaluate Prolanta™ for the potential treatment of additional gynecological cancers, more specifically uterine cancer. Prior research funded at the MD Anderson Cancer Center resulted in the discovery of the mechanism of action of Prolanta™ (autophagy) and preclinical evidence of efficacy in ovarian cancer.
Mr. Michael T. Redman, Oncolix Chief Executive Officer, said, “Because Prolanta has the potential to treat all gynecological cancers, it is only fitting that we expand our focus to uterine cancer. Like ovarian cancer, more than 80 percent of uterine cancer cells overexpress prolactin receptors, which are the molecular target for Prolanta™. Similarly, the unmet medical needs for uterine cancer are similar to ovarian cancer.”
Oncolix, Inc. (ONCX), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.0248, up 6.90%, on 38,323 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 133,779 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.016/$0.195.

Cerebain Biotech Corp. (CBBT)
Greenbackers, Viral Stocks, and Wall Street Mover reported on Cerebain Biotech Corp. (CBBT), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Cerebain Biotech Corp. centers on the creation and clinical development of a minimally invasive implantable device and a synthetic drug solution. A development-stage medical device enterprise, the Company formerly went by the name Discount Dental Materials, Inc. It changed its corporate name to Cerebain Biotech Corp. in June 2014.
Cerebain Biotech lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB. The Company is based in Costa Mesa, California.
Cerebain Biotech’s technology has allowed for the development of a medical device that can be implanted using a minimally invasive procedure. Upon implantation, through what will most likely be a same-day surgery procedure, patients may not have to undergo surgery again using this treatment method.
Cerebain’s device leverages the clinically observable, positive impact that omentum stimulation has on cognitive function as related to dementias, and in particular, Alzheimer’s disease. The Company’s patent-pending device is implanted in the omentum. The omentum is a protective layer of skin that protects the abdominal organs.
The design of the device is to stimulate the omentum in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Omental stimulation has been shown to improve cognitive function in patients with dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Cerebain Biotech will evaluate the effect of omental stimulation at different intervals and levels of stimulation to measure the device’s ability to slow, stop or reverse the progression of Alzheimer’s disease on patients. The Company’s novel device approach is supported by research and patient outcomes.
Cerebain Biotech has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Neurodegenerative Diseases, Mossakowski Medical Research Centre in Poland. The purpose of the MOU is to commence testing of Cerebain’s Medical Device upon completion of development. Moreover, Cerebain has a manufacturing agreement with Sonos Medical, a medical device supplier.
At the beginning of March, Cerebain Biotech announced that its intention is to begin the search process to partner with a Contract Research Organization (CRO). The search comes as the Company prepares for clinical trials and the FDA application process in combination with the development and testing of its medical device for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Furthermore, in March, Cerebain announced that its strategic partner, Sonos, added key personnel to its staff to facilitate the acceleration in development of the company’s medical device.”

To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/KGql0. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing some of the finer points about why SNNVF is “One to Watch” for investors.
Sunniva, Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) is a vertically integrated medical cannabis company operating in the world’s two largest cannabis markets – Canada and California – committed to delivering safe, consistent, high-quality products and services. Sunniva operates through its wholly owned subsidiaries: Sunniva Medical Inc., CP Logistics, LLC, Natural Health Service Ltd., and Full-Scale Distributors, LLC. Sunniva’s vision is to become the lowest cost, highest quality cannabis producer in the markets it serves by building large scale purpose-built cGMP-compliant greenhouses, offering best quality assurance with cannabis products free from pesticides, providing better patient and doctor access to cannabis education, and sourcing better therapeutic delivery devices.
The company is establishing sophisticated distribution channels, including Sunniva’s ownership of Natural Health Services cannabis clinics in Canada with over 95,000 active patients, to purchase the significant quantities of high quality Sunniva-branded and Sunniva private-labeled cannabis products.
Sunniva is an ancient English name which means, “Gift of the Sun.” Sunniva’s team of horticulturists, scientists and engineers is helping to set best practices for the industry, believing that sun-grown, solar-powered cultivation is the most sustainable and cost-effective way to grow high-quality, premium cannabis.
The Sunniva Family includes:
CP Logistics, LLC
Through its subsidiary, CP Logistics LLC, Sunniva is developing Sunniva Campus, a state-of-the-art, purpose-built greenhouse facility in Cathedral City, California. This modern purpose-built, agri-technology greenhouse will adhere to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations that assure proper design, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.
Phase 1 of the project includes a fully funded 325,000 square foot greenhouse capable of producing 60,000 kg per year of dry cannabis at capacity with operations commencing Q3 2018. Approximately 30 percent of initial total production will be converted into oils and extracts.

These uniquely sealed greenhouses are designed to deploy custom, automation assembly line cultivation processes at a large scale. Energy consumption will be reduced while utilizing the energy of the sun and microclimatic controls to provide precise growing conditions. The greenhouse will recirculate air for more efficient climate control, and the company’s Integrated Pest Management System is designed to ensure every plant grown is certified clean and free of all contaminants and pesticides.
Sunniva Medical Inc.
Sunniva Medical Inc. is designing and preparing to break ground on the Sunniva Canada Campus encompassing 700,000 square feet of purpose-built cGMP greenhouse facilities in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. The total campus is expected to produce 100,000 kg of premium medical cannabis a year plus additional trim used for extraction. This facility will produce pesticide-free products and will convert trim to extracted products such as cannabis oil that can be used for drug delivery formats such as capsules, dissolvable strips, vaporization cartridges, tinctures and creams.
Sunniva and Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth”) recently announced a large take or pay supply agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Canopy Growth will purchase up to 45,000 kilograms of dried cannabis annually commencing Q1 2019, which includes the distribution of Sunniva branded products.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF)
Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) is pleased to announce that Hasbrouck Geophysics Inc. has successfully completed a large-scale gravity geophysical survey at the Company’s Cadiz Dry Lake Project, in the Mojave area of California.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) is a Canadian-based energy exploration and development company that is building one of the largest portfolios of high quality, domestic U.S. lithium brine assets. Its data and technology driven project development model is grounded in knowledge, opportunity and speed. Standard Lithium is led by an innovative and results-oriented management team with a strong focus on technical skills. The company has acquired several prospective lithium brine projects with known geological values consistent with producing basins, including its primary focus, the Bristol Dry Lake, California brownfield project that is permitted for related mineral production with accompanying world class infrastructure which are expected to contribute to faster, lower cost exploration and commercial development programs.
Recent results from a geophysical survey of the 25,000-acre Bristol Lake site suggest a high concentration of lithium-bearing brines are present throughout the company’s mineral lease agreement claims. Standard Lithium’s strategic partner in the venture, National Chloride Corporation of America, is well established in the region. All necessary infrastructure is on site, which gives Standard Lithium immediate access to conduct exploration brine sampling, lithium extraction, evaporation and processing activities, all within a fast-track project development schedule.
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.
Standard Lithium’s determination to provide battery-grade lithium materials is bolstered by its recently appointed Scientific Advisory Council. These leading lithium extraction scientists and process engineers will oversee and direct the necessary lithium extraction process testing work. In addition to the Bristol Lake Brine Project, the company signed a Memorandum of Understanding in August with an unnamed New York Stock Exchange-listed company on an option for Standard to acquire lithium exploration and productions rights on 30,000 net brine acres overlying the Smackover formation in a region with a history of commercial-scale brine processing. Management believes lithium-bearing brines are likely present in this area. Smackover brines are metal-rich brine anomalies in reservoir rocks along the Gulf Coast from east Texas to Florida known to be a prime lithium resource. This resource may be one of the most promising ones to develop, given that a large-scale brine extraction, processing and reinjection industry is already well established.
Recently, Standard Lithium closed a multi-million dollar private placement offering, which allows the company to advance its current projects and pursue strategic acquisitions in the lithium sector. The company is well positioned with significant exploration opportunities featuring low cost production costs, easy transport, proximity to demand, and access to innovative production methodology.”
Standard Lithium Ltd. (STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $0.3499, up 16.25%, on 24,161 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 47,599 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.125/$1.15.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC, ASX: FCC, OTCQB: FTSSF) today announces it has initiated a study of the First Cobalt Refinery, located in the Canadian Cobalt Camp, intended to help the Company estimate the capital requirements for a future restart and expansion of the Refinery.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.602, up 0.33%, on 165,021 volume with 104 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 205,539 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3148/$1.3041.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF)
Choom™ (CSE: CHOO; OTCQB: CHOOF) announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Island Green Cure Ltd ("IGC") an advanced-stage cannabis production license applicant under Health Canada's Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how CHOOF has built a strong leadership team to meet the challenge of the arduous licensing and regulatory processes required by the industry, when it comes to preparing for cultivation and retails sales.
Choom Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: CHOOF) (CSE: CHOO) channels the laid-back spirit of Hawaii to the Okanagan region of British Columbia with a generous nod to the inspirational, yet unofficial, history of the 1970s “Choom Gang,” a group of buddies in Honolulu (including former President Barack Obama) who knew how to relax with “choom,” the local’s term for marijuana. Choom’s trademark slogans pivot off another unconventional phrase (“Say Hello to…”), bringing a heady dose of good times and good friends together as the company invites investors to “Say Hello to Choom™” as it lights up the adult recreational cannabis market in Canada.
Choom™ has been an ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicant since November 2013 in Vernon, B.C. The company’s first application has received security clearance and is now in the detailed review stage. They also recently announced their second late-stage ACMPR application, which is in its confirmation of readiness stage. Cannabis Compliance Inc. has been retained to help expedite Choom’s initial license applications to ensure the company’s readiness for legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada mid-summer 2018.
True to the company’s character, Choom™ is retrofitting two large facilities – No. 1 in Vernon, B.C., and No. 2 on Vancouver Island – to house its cannabis growing facilities. Phase 1 of the Vernon property will provide Choom™ with 6,800 square feet of growing space, capable of producing 660 kg/year of cannabis at an estimated revenue of $6.6 million, excluding oils. The company expects this facility to be completed by July 2018, the same month that Canada is expected to formally legalize recreational marijuana for adult use. A potential Phase 2, to be completed by the end of 2018, would add another 6,800 square feet for a total of 1,500 kg/year capacity, which would nearly double No. 1’s revenue. A Level 9 vault is also planned with a storage capacity of 15,000 kg. While the No. 2 facility on Vancouver Island is smaller – 4,500 square feet – its retrofit is also slated to be completed by July 2018. Plans include doubling this space as well, which would add about $9 million in annual revenue, excluding cannabis oils.
Choom™ announced its retail dispensary strategy with the intention of establishing market leadership in reaching the Canadian cannabis consumer. The partner program is already in the retail space design stage as the company seeks to build a chain of branded retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where recreational cannabis is legal. Choom™ Stores will have a cool, modern layout and design created to emit an authentic “Aloha” vibe. Choom™ is all about producing high-grade cultivars and curating them for a bigger audience.
A savvy, experienced management team includes Chris Bogart, president and CEO; John Oh, R.P.I.C., Operations Manager; Robert Bayrack, Master Grower, S.P.I.C.; and Adrian Robinson, Strategic Advisor. Bogart has over two decades of international experience in capital markets and was a co-founder of InMed Pharmaceuticals and Magnum Uranium. He has structured complex equity financing transactions in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Bogart is joined on the Board of Directors by Kevin Pull, Stephen Tong and John Oh.
While the medical marijuana industry is expected to double by 2021 to 500,000 registered users, the true highlight of the recreational cannabis represents the key cultural shift set to launch in Canada. With an estimated $4.9B to $8.7B retail market coming, now is the right time for a Recreation Brand like Choom™ to be involved in this growing industry. Establishing and maintaining Choom™ premium brand loyalty is a key factor in the company’s growth strategy. Get ready to “Say Hello” to opportunity, good times and good friends with Choom™.
Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF), closed the day's trading session at $0.7317, up 0.65%, on 165,699 volume with 181 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 121,814 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.125/$0.8612.

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.

Hiku Brands Co. Ltd. (DJACF)
Hiku Brands Company Ltd. (CSE:HIKU) (OTC:DJACF) and WeedMD Inc. (TSX-V:WMD) (OTC:WDDMF) (FSE:4WE) ("WeedMD"), are pleased to announce that today they have entered into a definitive agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") to merge both companies, creating an industry leader (the "Transaction").
Headquartered in British Columbia’s picturesque Okanagan Valley, Hiku Brands Co. Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) iis a premium cannabis lifestyle brand growing high-quality handcrafted cannabis flower. Hiku’s wholly owned subsidiary is a licensed producer of cannabis under the ACMPR that has requested its Pre-Sales License Inspection, the last step prior to receiving a license to sell cannabis under the ACMPR. Hiku’s Dominion Facility is a state-of-the-art ACMPR licensed production facility capable of producing approximately 660 kg year of dried cannabis flower. Hiku’s second facility, a 22,580 sq ft warehouse, “the FUTURE LAB”, is targeting its Phase 1 completion by Q2 2018 and once the facility is fully built-out utilizing an industry leading multi-tier system powered by LED lighting provided by Fluence BioEngineering, Hiku’s annual production capacity is expected to be in excess of 5,000 kgs. Hiku was founded by the proven entrepreneurial team that started SAXX Underwear®.
On December 21, 2017, Hiku and TS Brandco Holdings Inc. (“Tokyo Smoke”) announced that they have entered into a binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to merger the two companies and create a uniquely positioned cannabis company combining a best-in-class craft cannabis producer with an award-winning lifestyle brand and retail-focused cannabis company. It is anticipated that the combined company resulting from the merger will use the name “Hiku Brands Company Ltd.” (“Hiku”) to refer to the brand house containing premium cannabis brands DOJA, Tokyo Smoke, and Van der Pop.
Hiku recently closed on a $10 million strategic equity investment from Aphria Inc. (“Aphria”) (TSX:APH and US OTC: APHQF) to expand their product offering ahead of the recreational market.
Upon completion of the merger, Hiku will have a robust cash position of approximately $31 million, which it plans to invest in expanding its cannabis production capacity, growing its retail footprint, and adding select brands to its portfolio through highly strategic and complementary acquisitions.
