Nautilus Minerals has offices in Brisbane, Australia; Canada; and in Kavieng, New Ireland, Papua New Guinea, and Nuku'alofa, Tonga, South Pacific.
A seafloor resource exploration business, Nautilus explores and develops the ocean floor for copper, gold, silver, and zinc SMS deposits. Furthermore, the Company explores for manganese, nickel, copper, and cobalt nodule deposits. Nautilus has its copper-gold project named Solwara 1. It is under development in the territorial waters of Papua New Guinea (PNG).
The Solwara 1 deposit sits on the seafloor at a water depth of about 1600 meters. Solwara 1 contains a copper grade of approximately 7 percent. This compares with land-based copper mines, where the copper grade today averages 0.6 percent.
Gold grades of substantially more than 20 g/tonne have been recorded in some intercepts at Solwara 1. The average grade is roughly 6 g/tonne. Moreover, the Company holds highly prospective exploration acreage in the western Pacific (granted and under application), and in international waters in the Central Pacific.
Nautilus Minerals is currently negotiating the terms of an agreement with arm's length third parties. This would involve the establishment of a new joint venture company (the Vessel JV) to be owned by the third parties and Nautilus' subsidiary, Nautilus Minerals Niugini Limited (NMN).
The purpose of the Vessel JV would be to fund the acquisition of the Production Support Vessel (PSV) that Nautilus had previously arranged to be obtained through MAC Goliath Pte Ltd (MAC) and the integration expenses of installing the mining equipment on the PSV. The Vessel JV would own and operate the fully integrated PSV.
Yesterday, Nautilus Minerals announced that it and Deep Sea Mining Finance Ltd. agreed to extend the maturity date of the existing secured loan facility that is currently due on February 8, 2019, for 28 days ending on March 8, 2019.
Nautilus continues to seek short and long term funding solutions. This is while assessing its options, including different restructuring options. Negotiations with various third parties continue.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)
Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) ("PBI" and the "Company") today announced that the Company will host a teleconference to discuss its Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 financial results and to provide a business update. Anyone interested may listen to the teleconference either live (by telephone) or through a replay (by telephone or via a link on the Company's website approximately one day after the teleconference).
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.
The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.
Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”
Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.
The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.
Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.
This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.
The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.50, up 1.45%, on 2,260 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 17,248 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.52/$4.10.

Ever since voters in Maine approved a ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016, the state had never formulated rules to regulate the commercialization of adult-use cannabis even if residents were allowed to grow a limited number of cannabis plants soon after the midterm vote that paved the way for recreational marijuana. Two years later, the state has released its draft rules indicating how the recreational market will be regulated.
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.

Using its proprietary nanotechnology formulation, the company delivers creams, beverages, baked goods and tincture formulations with superior bioavailability and water solubility.
The efficacy of most hemp?products is restricted as the insoluble nature of the molecules prevents most of the product from permeating the skin or entering the body system. Geyser Brands solves this insolubility problem with an advanced delivery system that quickly and efficiently transports therapeutic agents directly to the bloodstream for maximum absorbency.
Made with all-natural materials, NanoFusion technology offers an array of advantages: enhances penetration for deeper skin penetration; improves the transport of active ingredients for site-specific targeting; delivers active ingredients across cell membranes for release within the cell; provides longer shelf-life and stability of molecules.
Geyser Brands operates a 7,000-square-foot facility in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, where its initial cannabis cultivation generated the first revenues out of the company's cultivation license granted in October 2018. Geyser Brands is approved as a licensed producer in compliance with Health Canada standards, which allows the company to pursue its processing and sales license. Obtaining this license will enable the company to extend its products and brands into the regulated Canadian cannabis market and directly to the consumer medical market.
Geyser Brands's integrated production chain and formulation lab develops innovative products using high-quality hemp and CBD for healthy lifestyle brands while its R&D lab produces product formulations designed to enhance bio-availability of hemp and CBD and shelf stability while maintaining all-natural ingredients and ensuring premium quality.
Geyser Brands will continue to seek opportunities to invest into the research and development of unique high-quality proprietary strains and technologies that target specific health-related conditions such as pain and inflammation reduction, insomnia, digestive issues and other commonly known ailments.
Among the brand formulations in Geyser Brand's portfolio are:
- Apothecary all-natural Hemp Terpene Pain Cream with optimal skin permeation
- Prohibition Cold Brew Mocha designed with water soluble hemp molecules
- Apothecary health products created to deliver fast-acting and high bioavailability in a spray formulation

He formerly was also a director of Indigo Sky Capital Corp. and has been the CFO and a director of the Company since 2016 and Corporate?Secretary of the Company since 2017.
Geyser Brands's Co-Founder Brad Kersch brings a strong business background with over 20 years of experience in?successful startups and working?with Fortune 500 companies. He spent his early years in the advertising and?marketing field and went on to form Hyperware, a clothing?company that sold branded clothing to retailers across Canada?before selling to clothing giant Ocean Pacific (OP).

Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF)
SmallCapVoice.com, Inc. and Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (OTC QB: NGTF), a pioneering consumer goods brand development company that owns both Nightfood, Inc. and MJ Munchies Inc., announced today that the Company is featured in a new audio interview at SmallCapVoice.com, Inc.
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.
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.
Jim Christensen, vice president of Nightfood Ice Cream, is the former Vice President of Ice Cream Sales with global ice cream giant Unilever. In his over 20 years at Unilever, Jim led sales and distribution initiatives for brands such as Ben & Jerry’s, Klondike, Breyers and Good Humor. Christensen joined the Nightfood team in June of 2018 with the directive to launch Nightfood ice cream rapidly into national distribution through supermarket, drug, convenience and other channels. Understanding that the overwhelming majority of at-home ice cream consumption occurs in the hours before bed, Christensen has identified Nightfood as the next evolution in better-for-you ice cream.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST), a Florida-based biotechnology company focused on cannabis and cannabinoid research and development, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, is well-positioned to take advantage of the growing demand for cannabinoid products by offering the highest purity and quality cannabinoids on the market.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the "Company" or "Lexaria"), a drug delivery platform innovator, announces that it has entered a definitive 5-year agreement, via its subsidiary Lexaria CanPharm ULC, to provide Lexaria's patented DehydraTECHTM technology to a private California-based cannabis company for its utilization in certain cannabis-based beverages to be produced and sold in the states of California and Nevada.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including nicotine and cannabinoids. To achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset, consumers traditionally defaulted to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering these substances through a patented process within edible food products, thus eliminating all the harmful health consequences of smoking.
Lexaria’s technology is unique in that it takes advantage of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) food ingredients processed with its patented DehydraTECHTM technology to improve taste, remove odor, and decrease the time to onset of bitter-tasting drugs. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise and has existing cannabinoid licensing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the United States, and internationally. Lexaria has entered into a R&D partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within popular foods such as coffee, tea, and supplements. These brands include ViPova™ and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Lexaria has conducted multiple rounds of studies including in vivo and human clinical. In absorption studies conducted on rats, for example, Lexaria detected nicotine in the animal’s bloodstream just two minutes after it entered the stomach. In a randomized, double blinded human clinical study, cannabidiol (CBD) was measure in the human bloodstream at a 317% higher rate 30 minutes after swallowing a capsule processed with DehydraTECH than a non-enhanced capsule of equal strength.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D have helped support B2B relationships with Fortune 500 companies. Lexaria has four distinct subsidiaries that focus on different market sectors: Hemp/CBD; Pharmaceutical; Cannabis; and Nicotine.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong and growing intellectual property portfolio. As of the end of 2018, the company’s patent portfolio includes 53 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world; and 10 patents granted to date. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the U.S. and internationally in 2019 and beyond. Some of its more recent areas of investigation have included human hormones and erectile dysfunction substances, among others.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third-partners and has signed royalty deals with start-up companies as well as with a Fortune 100. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has contributed to several multi-hundred million-dollar valuations over the course of his career. He is supported by a growing team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.0175, off by 4.01%, on 125,878 volume with 133 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 133,624 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp., (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) (OTC PINK: QMCQF) ("QMC" or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on the company's 100% owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project located within the prolific Cat Lake-Winnipeg River rare-element pegmatite field of S.E. Manitoba, which also hosts Cabot Corporation's nearby Tantalum Mining Corporation of Canada ("TANCO") rare-element pegmatite.
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 $0.18, off by 5.31%, on 136,500 volume with 31 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 46,463 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.512.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. Ever since voters in Maine approved a ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016, the state had never formulated rules to regulate the commercialization of adult-use cannabis even if residents were allowed to grow a limited number of cannabis plants soon after the midterm vote that paved the way for recreational marijuana. Two years later, the state has released its draft rules indicating how the recreational market will be regulated.
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
