(LWLG), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Lightwave Logic is a technology business centering on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high-speed fiber-optic data communications and telecommunications. The Company creates prototype electro-optic demonstration devices. OTCQB-listed, Lightwave Logic has its corporate office in Longmont, Colorado.

The Company is moving toward commercialization of next generation photonic devices using its high-activity and high-stability organic polymers for applications in data communications and telecommunications markets. Lightwave Logic is utilizing organic nonlinear electro-optical and all-optical polymers (plastic) as the basis for a series of proprietary (internal and licensed to external partners) advanced Integrated Optical Devices, which have extensive applications in telecommunications, data communications, and optical computing for use in commercial and military markets.

Lightwave Logic has integrated its proprietary Perkinamine™ chromophore technology with other chromophores based in part on elements of proprietary, in-licensed technologies. This has resulted in a strong and durable nonlinear organic electro-optical (EO) material that will be used in photonic device development. It is founded on Lightwave Logic's multi-chromophore approach that enables two or more chromophores to work together.

The Polymer Photonics Integrated Circuit (P2ICTM) is alike to an electronic integrated circuit. Nonetheless, it incorporates two or more optical functions or devices integrated onto a single substrate platform. The Company expects that P2ICsTM will become an important engine in the transceiver market over the next ten years. Lightwave is developing its P2IC into prototypes.

Lightwave Logic has its 50 Gbaud polymer modulator. The Company advanced from a 3 Gbps modulator to packaged 50 Gbps modulators in May of last year. In accordance with its annual plan presented at the May 2018 Annual Shareholder Meeting (ASM), Lightwave Logic continues its development of the 50 Gbaud (capable of 50 Gbps and above) packaged modulator prototypes. Furthermore, the Company has accelerated work on 100 Gbaud polymer modulators that it says are well ahead of any existing products on the market.

Lightwave Logic was granted, in December of 2018, US Patent number 10,162,111 entitled, "Multi-fiber/port hermetic capsule sealed by metallization and method". This brings the Company's total portfolio to 30 patents. In January, Lightwave Logic announced that it secured a new $25 million purchase agreement with Chicago-based institutional investor Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (LPC). With this agreement, and at Lightwave Logic's sole discretion, LPC has committed to invest up to $25 million in Lightwave Logic's common stock over a 36-month period.

Mr. Michael Lebby, Lightwave Logic's Chief Executive Officer, said, "The new agreement will assist the Company as we continue development and commercialization of our fiber optic products aimed at high-performance and high-growth markets driven by 5G and edge data centers."

(WIZP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Wize Pharma, Inc. focuses on the treatment of ophthalmic disorders. This includes dry eye syndrome (DES). The OTCQB-listed Company previously went by the name Star Night Technologies Ltd. It changed its corporate name to Wize Pharma, Inc. in July of 2015. A clinical-stage biopharmaceutical enterprise, the Company is headquartered in Hod Hasharon, Israel.

Wize Pharma has in-licensed certain rights to purchase, market, sell, and distribute a formula named LO2A. This is a drug developed for the treatment of DES, and other ophthalmological illnesses, including conjunctivochalasis (CCH) and Sjögren's Syndrome. Currently, LO2A is registered and marketed by its inventor in Germany and Switzerland for the treatment of DES, in Hungary for the treatment of DES and CCH, and in the Netherlands for the treatment of DES and Sjögren's Syndrome.

Wize Pharma is now conducting a Phase II trial of LO2A for patients with CCH and a Phase IV study for LO2A for DES in patients with Sjögren's. The Company announced in March of last year that it enrolled the initial patient in its Phase IV clinical trial in Israel for LO2A in the symptomatic treatment of dry eye syndrome (DES) in patients with Sjögren's syndrome. This randomized, double-masked study is evaluating LO2A versus Alcon's Systane® Ultra UD, an over-the-counter (OTC) lubricant eye drop product used to relieve dry and irritated eyes.

The design of the study (in addition to meeting marketing approval requirements in Israel) is to support Wize Pharma's clinical approval pathway for LO2A for the treatment of DES in patients with Sjögren's in other markets including the U.S., China, and Ukraine. LO2A is already approved in Israel for the treatment of DES.

This past November, Wize Pharma announced top line results from its Phase II clinical trial in Israel of LO2A for the symptomatic treatment of dry eye syndrome (DES) in patients with moderate to severe conjunctivochalasis (CCh). Wize Pharma's Chairman, Noam Danenberg, stated, "We are very pleased with these top line results and we look forward to analyzing the full results. We believe the full results from this study, will support our clinical development path and provide firm basis for presentation and discussions with the FDA for the approval pathway of LO2A in the U.S. and additional countries."

Last week, Wize Pharma announced that it signed an agreement with Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: CNBX) to form a joint venture (JV) company for researching, developing and administering cannabinoid formulations to treat ophthalmic conditions. Cannabics Pharmaceuticals is a global leader in personalized cannabinoid medicine centered on cancer and its side effects.

Chesapeake Gold Corp. centers on the exploration and development of precious metals projects in North America. Its management and technical team have an excellent track record. This team, with Francisco Gold Corp., discovered El Sauzal and Marlin, which are two Goldcorp, Inc. mines in Mexico and Guatemala. OTCQX-listed, Chesapeake Gold is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Company's major project is its 100 percent owned Metates gold deposit. This project is in Durango state, Mexico. Metates is one of the largest undeveloped gold and silver projects in the world. Independent Mining Consultants reported NI 43-101 (National Instrument 43-101) proven and probable reserves of 18.5 million ounces of gold, 526 million ounces of silver, and 4.2 billion pounds of zinc. The metal prices assumed for the reserves are $1,200 per ounce gold and $25 for silver per ounce at a cutoff grade of 0.35 g/t gold equivalent.

Metates has the option to be an initial 30,000 tpd or 60,000 tpd mine that expands to full nameplate capacity. A pre-feasibility study (PFS) by M3 Engineering indicates at the Phase 2 throughput rate of 120,000 tpd, yearly production over 25 years would be 659,000 ounces of gold, 16 million ounces of silver and 143 million pounds of zinc at a gold equivalent cash cost of $490 per ounce, net zinc credits.

Additionally, Chesapeake Gold's Mexico properties include Yarely, La Gitana, La Cecilia, and Tatatila. Yarely is an emerging diversified camp. Drilling has discovered a large porphyry system. The Company's U.S. property is Talapoosa. Talapoosa has an open pit resource of 1.2 million ozs of gold and 16 million ozs silver with first-rate exploration upside. Chesapeake's Guatemala property is El Escorpion.

This past December, Chesapeake Gold provided an update on the exploration work at its 100 percent owned Yarely Project in Sinaloa State and Tatatila Project in Veracruz State, Mexico. A Phase I drill program at Yarely in early 2018 tested three of six known prospects.

The drill results and related exploration activities reported in June of 2018. The drill program was successful in the discovery of a blind copper-molybdenum porphyry system at Loretos, a wide-ranging near-surface polymetallic skarn at Lucy, as well as a high grade gold-silver vein system at Spaniard-Central. The Company also reported on a host of other projects in its December update (https://bit.ly/2MTkpoo).

For 2019 at Yarely, the Goyo prospect will be systematically advanced to the drill stage and also follow-up exploration in several areas showing anomalous stream sediments. Yarely continues to be an emerging, diversified mineralized camp with numerous district scale prospects and the potential for future discoveries.

Chesapeake Gold Corp. (CHPGF), closed Monday's trading session at $1.36, even for the day, on 18,080 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 5,903 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.10/$2.11.

Nutritional High International, Inc. (SPLIF)

Wallet Investor, SECFilings.com News, Marketwired, SmallCapVoice, Daily Marijuana Observer, CFN Media Group, Barchart, Insider Financial, 4-Traders, The Street, and Promotion Stock Secrets reported previously on Nutritional High International, Inc. (SPLIF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Nutritional High International, Inc. centers on developing, manufacturing, and distributing products and nationally recognized brands in the hemp and marijuana-infused products industries. These include edibles and oil extracts for nutritional, medical, and adult recreational use. The Company works exclusively via licensed facilities in jurisdictions where such activity is permitted and regulated by state law. Nutritional High International is based in Toronto, Ontario and the Company lists on the OTCQB.

Pertaining to its Hemp-Infused Products segment, Nutritional High launched the first product in its Active Hemp category under the brand of "Nutritional Traditions". For this segment, first distribution will focus on California and Colorado by way of cannabis-related retail stores: medical marijuana dispensaries, vape lounges and headshops; and Food Supplement retail stores.

Regarding its Marijuana-Infused Products segment, the Company concentrates on developing, acquiring, and designing Marijuana-Infused Products (MIPs) and Marijuana Concentrate products and brands. With this segment, Nutritional High is establishing operations in Colorado and Illinois. The Company is working to expand into more U.S. States in support of its strategy to establish some of the first nationally-recognized brands for MIPs.

Last month, Nutritional High International announced that it entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) to purchase a controlling 51 percent interest in Tres Ojos Naturals, LLC d/b/a SolDaze, a limited liability company from Santa Cruz, California. SolDaze produces cannabis infused fruit snacks in California that undergo distribution by Nutritional High's distributor, Calyx Distributions.

Last week, Nutritional High International reported that effective February 1, 2019, the City of Sacramento Cannabis Policy & Enforcement rescinded local authorization for cannabis manufacturing for Pasa Verde, LLC, a subsidiary of the Company. Without local authorization in place, the California Department of Public Health was required to revoke Pasa Verde's state temporary manufacturing license.

This does not in any way affect the licensing of Nutritional High International's distribution operations under Calyx Brands, the temporary-licensed cannabis distribution subsidiary of the Company. Additionally, it has minimal impact on Company operations.

Mr. Jim Frazier, Nutritional High International's Chief Executive Officer, said, "While we had hoped to maintain the local authorization at FLI Labs NorCal and secure the BOP [Business Operating Permit] early on in the build-out period, this is a minor shift in our operations. We look forward to working with the City on a new BOP, completing the build-out and moving forward with fully compliant manufacturing, production and packaging operations at scale in Sacramento."

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 the launch of Cambium Plant Sciences ("Cambium"), located in Goderich, Ontario. Cambium, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Supreme Cannabis, aims to lead the agricultural revolution of cannabis genetics, redefining consumer experiences and cultivation economics across the global cannabis industry. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how SRUTF is making final preparations for this month's roll out of its oil products line to adult-use consumers in select Canada markets, taking yet another step forward in its push to "simply grow better" while it also develops its international operations. Additionally, the company was highlighted 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 $1.478, up 1.23%, on 355,250 volume with 531 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 690,188 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.04.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (OTC: TGODF).

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce it has received its oil sales licence from Health Canada pursuant to the Cannabis Act for its Hamilton, Ontario facility. The Company received its oils production licence in April of 2018 and subsequently installed a state-of-the-art supercritical CO2 extraction system, capable of processing ultra-pure, environmentally friendly, organic cannabis oils. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article examining how large indoor cannabis growers have been reporting big losses due to their energy inefficiency and are looking to improve efficiency with solutions from providers such as CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK).

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (NGTF).

Nightfood Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the innovative company solving America's $50-billion nighttime snacking problem, today announced that it is adding the 2019 'Product of the Year' logo to Nightfood ice cream packaging for its next production run. To view the full press release, visit http://nnw.fm/NR5By.

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.

Formulated by leading sleep and nutrition experts, including America’s most prominent sleep expert, Dr. Michael Breus, Nightfood’s higher protein/higher fiber, and lower sugar ice cream delivers great ice cream taste and texture, while minimizing sleep-disruptive ingredients such as caffeine, excess sugar, and excess fat and calories. 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.

Nightfood Inc. began its nationwide rollout of Nightfood ice cream in February 2019, successfully securing placement in Meijer supermarket locations in the Midwest with a concentration around the metropolitan areas of Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus and Milwaukee. 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.

Ice cream lovers in northern California will find Nightfood Ice Cream at various upscale, independent retail outlets in and around the San Francisco bay area serviced through a distribution agreement with Wonder Ice Cream Company, which services thousands of retail outlets from Bakersfield north to the Oregon border. Consumers can also purchase Nightfood ice cream online at BuyNightfood.com through the Company’s partnership with IceCreamSource.com.

Ice cream is now the 2nd most popular night snack choice, with almost half of all consumers reaching for ice cream after dark. 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.

Management believes the Half-Baked brand will give the Company a unique and defensible competitive advantage against other recreational edible brands. The Company believes tremendous opportunities currently exist to launch successful and legally compliant products in this space, and that such opportunities will continue to grow over time.

Management Team

Nightfood founder and CEO Sean Folkson is a formerly frustrated nighttime snacker whose late-night cravings led him to seek a better solution for himself and others through the creation, marketing and distribution of the Nightfood product line. Folkson also founded internet marketing company AffiliatePros.com which provided the startup capital to launch Specialty Equipment Direct, an online distributor of floor removal equipment that quickly grew to 7-figure revenues. Folkson received a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing from S.U.N.Y Albany, New York, in 1991.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

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.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH).

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) is a software development and mobile solutions company focused on the delivery of digital offerings to mobile devices. The company provides mobile offerings, delivery of mobile content, mobile payments solutions and products through a mix of direct offerings, partnerships, license agreements and joint venture arrangements. A multi-year transition from a transaction management company focused on transaction processing solutions and products for the payment processing and financial transaction markets to multiple business verticals deepens the company's commitment to deliver innovating solutions to end users who are using smart handset devices in radical new ways.

Consorteum Holdings, utilizing its Universal Mobile Interface™ ("UMI") solution, offers opportunities in numerous markets with its capacity to support fully regulated, regionally compliant financial and social transactions via web and mobile. The company's UMI technology has the capacity to provide solutions in FinTech, data analytics, secure payment processing, compliance lead transaction management and various digital social event sectors. The UMI platform allows cross operating system development to support all mobile devices while addressing the complex and highly regulated needs of the mobile FinTech industry.

Led by the development team at Consorteum's wholly owned subsidiary 359 Mobile Inc., the Company has created an end-to-end FinTech solution utilizing the company's UMI technology platform. Current mobile application and transaction solutions are plagued by poor experiences. Because UMI's technology platform is designed to work across innovative payment, experience and product solutions, 359 Mobile believes there are both direct and partnership opportunities for the 359 Mobile UMI solution.

Consorteum's primary sales and marketing strategy is focused on enabling and delivering solutions to the global mobile FinTech market with an emphasis initially on mobile gaming. The trend towards increased mobile gambling supports the need for a mobile platform such as the UMI to meet existing and new compliance regulations for the online gambling industry. The online gambling market is projected to double to nearly $1 trillion by 2021, according to a study by Juniper Research, with the majority of growth in this sector attributed to mobile devices. Consorteum's management team believes there are fresh opportunities in this sector such as Mobile Marketing Services providing one-to-one marketing experiences for consumers; offering real-time services to Mobile Sports Book operators; and providing fixed odds betting solutions as well as social-based transactional solutions.

Consorteum's management team includes Chairman and CEO Craig A.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTC: CHOOF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF).

Choom Holdings Inc. (OTC: 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 $0.405, off by 3.57%, on 327,072 volume with 218 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 608,924 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.285/$1.129.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

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 $0.02725, off by 1.98%, on 360,408 volume with 31 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 916,485 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.008/$0.075.
