Elio Motors, Inc. (ELIO)
The Verge, Zacks, Green Car Reports, OTC Markets, Marketbeat and Green Car Congress reported earlier on Elio Motors, Inc. (ELIO), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Elio Motors, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, and sells automobiles. It concentrates on developing the ultra-high-mileage, low-cost, three-wheel Elio vehicle for mass production in the United States. Elio Motors was founded by car enthusiast Mr. Paul Elio. The Company’s first manufacturing site will be a former General Motors plant in Shreveport, Louisiana. Elio has its corporate office in Phoenix, Arizona.
The three-wheel Elio is engineered to achieve a highway mileage rating of up to 84 mpg. This is while providing the comfort of amenities including power windows, power door locks, air conditioning and cruise control, accompanied by the safety of manifold air-bags and an aerodynamic, enclosed vehicle body. Each Elio comes equipped with a Safety Management System. This includes three airbags, a unibody frame, an Anti-Lock Braking System, and 50 percent larger crush zones than similar vehicles.
Elio is American made. It is engineered to deliver the highest safety standards. Elio gets up to 84 MPG highway due to its inventive design. Gas mileage is determined by how much wind resistance there is on a vehicle. Elio is half the width of a regular car; therefore it gets twice the mileage. The Company’s four ‘must-haves” include excellent MPG (miles per gallon); uncompromised safety; an All-American pedigree; and low price.
In September of 2018, Elio Motors announced that it entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a Fortune 500 OEM (original equipment manufacturer), to provide the engine foundation as part of a new powertrain for the Elio vehicle. The Company projects that the new powertrain will result in $120 million in research and development (R&D) cost savings.
Elio Motors is working with the engineering team at Roush to develop a new Elio prototype utilizing the OEM powertrain. Roush will integrate the new powertrain into Elio's prototype so as to commence preliminary testing procedures. These testing procedures will prepare the Elio for production.
Elio Motors, Inc. (ELIO), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.85, up 7.56%, on 730 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2,587 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.269/$5.15.
Birchcliff Energy Ltd. (BIREF)
Top Stocks News, OilandGas360, Canadian Insider, Energy Now, Simply Wall St, GlobeNewswire, Stockhouse, Trading View, Marketbeat, Stockwatch, Business Insider, and Market Screener reported previously on Birchcliff Energy Ltd. (BIREF), and today we are highlighting Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Birchcliff Energy Ltd. explores for, develops, and produces natural gas, crude oil, and natural gas liquids in Western Canada. An intermediate oil and natural gas company, it has operations concentrated within its one core area, The Peace River Arch Of Alberta. Birchcliff has considerable in-house technical expertise and experience on the Peace River Arch. Established in 2004, Birchcliff Energy is based in Calgary, Alberta.
The Company has focused assets in the Peace River Arch Area of Alberta on the Montney/Doig Resource Play. It essentially has a 100 percent working interest (WI); 99 percent of production is operated. Birchcliff has a large, contiguous undeveloped land base with an average 89 percent WI.
Birchcliff Energy has significant control of infrastructure. This includes the 100 percent owned and operated 340 MMcf/d Pouce Coupe Gas Plant (PC Gas Plant). In addition, the Company has a low decline production base (estimated 20 percent in 2019), and a top tier cost structure driving peer leading profitability.
Furthermore, Birchcliff Energy has a 2P reserve life index (RLI) of approximately 35.6 years as at December 31, 2018. The Company had 385 (380.6 net) Montney/Doig horizontal wells drilled as at December 31, 2018. Moreover, Birchcliff had 6,365.8 net future potential Montney/Doig horizontal drilling locations as at December 31, 2018.
Birchcliff Energy’s key strategic attributes include 18 gross (15.1 net) Montney sections contiguous to existing BIR infrastructure. There is the potential for 4 Montney intervals (Montney D1, D2, C, Basal Doig/Upper Montney). Birchcliff drilled a 6 well pad in Q1 2019. It is to be completed and brought on production in Q3 2019. The strategic land acquisition provides additional liquids rich drilling inventory to fill the Pouce Coupe Gas Plant.
The acquisition included roughly 700 boe/d of legacy production. The acquisition was evaluated chiefly on land acquisition metrics and future drilling opportunities. The construction of the 340 MMcf/d PC Gas Plant is in six separate phases and is on time and on budget.
Birchcliff Energy’s production averaged 74,884 boe/d in Q1 2019. This represents a 2 percent decrease from 76,323 boe/d in Q1 2018. The decrease was mainly attributable to the timing of bringing new production on-stream and natural production declines, partially offset by incremental production from new horizontal oil and natural gas wells brought on production. For Q1 2019, the Company drilled 13 (13.0 net) wells and brought 12 (12.0 net) wells on production.
Birchcliff Energy Ltd. (BIREF), closed Thursday's trading session at $2.0884, up 0.02%, on 96,206 volume with 97 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 29,170 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.099/$9.00.

Silex Systems Limited (SILXY)
Stockaholics, Penny Stock Hub, Speculating Stocks, Proactive Investors, Wallet Investor, OTC Markets, OTC.Watch, Investing.com, and 4-Traders reported beforehand on Silex Systems Limited (SILXY), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Silex Systems Limited is a high-technology company based in Australia. It focuses on the delivery of the innovative and disruptive SILEX Laser Enrichment Technology as the next generation technology for the worldwide uranium enrichment industry. The Company invented and initially developed the ‘SILEX’ laser-based uranium enrichment technology in Sydney during the 1990’s. Silex Systems lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQX.
The ‘SILEX’ laser-based uranium enrichment technology was licensed exclusively in 2006 to GE-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment LLC (GLE). GLE is a business venture presently consisting of GE (51 percent), Hitachi (25 percent) and Cameco (24 percent). Silex and GLE jointly continue to commercialize the technology for potential deployment in the United States. Silex Systems scientists Dr. Michael Goldsworthy and Dr. Horst Struve invented the SILEX technology in the mid 1990’s at Lucas Heights, Sydney.
In essence, the SILEX technology is an inventive laser-based process. It has the potential to economically separate uranium isotopes as well as commercially valuable isotopes of a number of other elements. Its advantages over other uranium enrichment processes include inherently higher efficiency resulting in lower costs. Advantages also include a smaller environmental footprint than centrifuge and diffusion plants. Furthermore, it has greater flexibility in producing advanced fuels for next generation small modular reactors (SMR's). The SILEX technology is also expected to have the lowest capital costs of all enrichment technologies.
Silex subsidiary Translucent, Inc. developed a novel set of semiconductor materials known as ‘crystalline Rare Earth Oxides’ (cREO™). These are for application to the manufacturing of next generation semiconductor devices used in wireless communications, power electronics and other advanced semiconductor industries.
Silex Systems recently provided an update on its recent activities. Silex is working towards finalization of a binding purchase agreement for the restructure of SILEX technology licensee GE-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment LLC (GLE). This follows the signing of a Term Sheet on February 5, 2019 that provides the key terms for a proposed joint purchase by Silex and Cameco of GE-Hitachi’s (GEH) 76 percent interest in GLE. Subject to obtaining U.S. Government approvals, the proposed restructure of GLE would result in Silex Systems acquiring a 51 percent interest, and Cameco increasing its interest in GLE from 24 percent to 49 percent.
Regarding the Translucent cREO™ technology and IQE, IQE Plc (LON: IQE), who acquired Translucent’s unique cREO™ semiconductor materials technology in March of 2018, disclosed on March 20, 2019 in the commentary to its full year results that positive progress continues to be made in the commercialization of cREO™ for application in many of its key target markets. A perpetual royalty of between 3 percent and 6 percent will be payable to Translucent on the sale of any IQE products globally that use the cREO™ technology, with minimum annual royalties due to start being paid in FY2020 for the first 6 years.
Silex Systems Limited (SILXY), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.40, up 8.53%, on 225 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 78 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.56/$1.572.

(PMCB), and today choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. concentrates on developing targeted treatments for cancer and diabetes applying its signature live cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®. This unique and patented technology is being used as a platform upon which treatments for many kinds of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built. A clinical stage biotechnology Company and OTCQB-listed, PharmaCyte Biotech has its corporate office in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The Company is also working towards improving the quality of life of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on developing treatments for other kinds of solid cancerous tumors. PharmaCyte’s treatment for pancreatic cancer involves low doses of the recognized anticancer prodrug ifosfamide, together with encapsulated live cells, which convert ifosfamide into its active or "cancer-killing" form.
The capsules are placed as close to the cancerous tumor as possible. This is to enable the delivery of the highest levels of the cancer-killing drug at the source of the cancer. The live-cell encapsulation technology that the Company employs is a way to enclose living cells in protective “cocoons” around the size of the head of a pin. It encapsulates living cells, not drugs. PharmaCyte Biotech is advancing its new treatment for pancreatic cancer into the clinic in the United States, with study sites in Australia and Europe.
Furthermore, the Company is developing treatments for cancer built upon chemical constituents of the cannabis plant, called cannabinoids. PharmaCyte is studying ways to exploit the benefits of Cell-in-a-Box® technology in optimizing the anticancer effectiveness of cannabinoids, while minimizing or outright eliminating the debilitating side effects typically associated with cancer treatments.
Recently, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that its partner, Austrianova, successfully encapsulated the live cells used in PharmaCyte’s therapy for its planned clinical trial in patients with locally advanced, non-metastatic, inoperable pancreatic cancer (LAPC). The cells are currently growing and dividing inside the Cell-in-a-Box® capsules.
PharmaCyte Biotech’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Kenneth L. Waggoner, said, “We are now in the process of monitoring the growth and division of the live cells as they spend more time in a ‘nutrient bath.’ This will allow the cells to continue to grow and divide and then completely fill the capsules. Once the capsules are completely full of live cells, they will be placed into syringes and frozen. Austrianova will then commence testing the capsules in the frozen syringes to finalize PharmaCyte’s clinical trial material.”
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.0387, up 0.58%, on 549,611 volume with 36 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1,648,214 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.035/$0.0885.

Top Stock Analysts, Club Penny Stocks Network, The Street, Streetwise Reports, All Penny Stocks, Stock News Now, Wise Alerts, plrinvest, Investors Underground, Real Pennies, PennyStocks24, Top Penny Stock Movers, Street Insider, Street Authority Daily, and The Microcap News reported previously on Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (PVCT), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical-stage oncology and dermatology Biopharmaceutical Company. It is developing new therapies for the treatment of solid tumor cancers and dermatologic diseases. The Company`s investigational oncology drug is PV-10. PV-10 is an oncolytic immunotherapy enrolling patients in Phase 3 clinical trials for metastatic melanoma. Provectus Biopharmaceuticals has its head office in Knoxville, Tennessee.
PV-10 is an ablative immunotherapy under investigation in solid tumor cancers. PV-10 is a 10 percent solution of small molecule and halogenated xanthene Rose Bengal. It undergoes administration through direct injection into solid tumor cancers, including melanoma, liver, and breast. It is not designed to rely on a single pathway, receptor or antigen to work. There is no known resistance.
The intention of PV-10 is to kill only diseased cells upon injection into tumors. Provectus Biopharmaceuticals has received orphan drug designations from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its melanoma and hepatocellular carcinoma indications. The Company completed Phase 2 trials of PV-10 as a therapy for metastatic melanoma, and of PH-10 as a topical treatment for atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.
PH-10 is a topical investigational drug for dermatology and is a topical hydrogel formulation. It yields selective delivery of rose bengal disodium to epithelial tissues. Regarding PH-10 for psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, a mechanism of action study is underway to measure the clinical and cellular response to PH-10's active investigational agent. A total of 226 subjects have been treated with PH-10 in Phase 1 or Phase 2 Clinical Trials.
Provectus Biopharmaceuticals announced this past November that it was granted orphan drug designation (ODD) by the FDA for small molecule oncolytic immunotherapy PV-10 for the treatment of neuroblastoma. This is a non-Central Nervous System (CNS) pediatric solid tumor. Intratumoral injection of PV-10 can yield immunogenic cell death (ICD) in solid tumor cancers and stimulate tumor-specific reactivity in circulating T cells. ODD status was earlier granted to PV-10 for the treatments of metastatic melanoma in 2007 and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in 2013.
Recently, Provectus Biopharmaceuticals announced that orphan drug designation (ODD) status was granted by the FDA to small molecule oncolytic immunotherapy PV-10 for the treatment of ocular melanoma (to include all melanoma disease affecting the eye and orbit). The FDA grants ODD status to medicines intended for the treatment, diagnosis or prevention of rare diseases or disorders that affect less than 200,000 people in the United States. ODD status qualifies companies for certain benefits. These benefits include seven years of market exclusivity following marketing approval, tax credits on U.S. clinical trials, eligibility for orphan drug grants, as well as waiver of certain administrative fees.
Provectus Biopharmaceuticals and the Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutics Investigators Consortium (POETIC) also recently announced that OncoTargets and Therapy (OTT) published preclinical results from in vitro and animal tumor model studies on PV-10 for the treatment of neuroblastoma. POETIC is a group of 10 top-tier academic medical centers developing new pediatric cancer therapies.
The work was led by Dr. Aru Narendran and his team at the University of Calgary’s POETIC Preclinical and Drug Discovery Laboratory. Prior preclinical and clinical studies by other researchers have shown that intratumoral injection of PV-10 can yield immunogenic cell death in adult solid tumors and stimulate tumor-specific reactivity in circulating T cells.
According to the POETIC authors, “Our studies provide preclinical proof-of-concept data on the efficacy of PV-10 in neuroblastoma. Mechanistically, we have found that PV-10 acts by disrupting lysosomes, inducing cell cycle changes and initiating cell death by apoptosis. We have also identified several commonly used treatments with which PV-10 shows synergistic anti-tumor activity. Furthermore, we have validated the efficacy of PV-10 in vivo, using neuroblastoma xenograft mouse experiments.”
Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (PVCT), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.0489, up 1.88%, on 59,945 volume with 11 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 215,632 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.011/$0.078.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN)
Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: GRYN), a full-scope premium cannabis cultivation company targeting the high-end medical and adult-use recreational markets, is moving to purchase over 824 acres of prime pasture in California’s San Diego County with an eye toward planting hemp – the nation’s newest legal crop. Now in escrow, the ranch property will provide Green Hygienics Holdings with room to grow hemp in California’s rapidly expanding cannabis industry, which reaped approximately $2 billion in total sales in 2018, according to Benzinga (http://nnw.fm/2jgS7).
Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN) is a full-scope, premium cannabis cultivation company targeting the high-end medical and adult-use recreational market. With more than 25 years of experience in agricultural science and innovation, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company will grow by generating revenues from the sales of premium grade cannabis products, developing and licensing valuable IP, making strategic acquisitions, and creating trusted global consumer brands.
The company has integrated and is developing its own IP assets related to proprietary systems and apparatus, software, algorithms and custom-engineered hardware. This provides ultimate efficiencies in a commercially controlled cultivation environment. Utilizing the advantages of hybrid-aeroponics, Green Hygienics creates a sterile growing environment that produces consistent, high-quality product while maintaining the lowest possible carbon footprint. The company utilizes state-of-the-art, quality-controlled commercial cultivation methodology to assure production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis at much higher yields and greatly reduced costs.
Hybrid-aeroponics produces quality cannabis faster than traditional methods since it doesn’t require natural sunlight or soil and can be operational and produce plants anywhere. Plants grown under aeroponic conditions receive water and nutrients directly to their roots via a fine mist in a controlled environment, dramatically reducing spoilage while keeping the product organic and the environment pest-free. The plants are given the exact amount of nutrients and moisture precisely when needed. Green Hygienics maintains ultimate control over every aspect of this cultivation process, which allows the company to operate with conservation of natural resources in mind. The technology that uses 90-95 percent less water and does not require the use of pesticides or fungicides.
Additionally, the company’s state-of-the-art engineered, controlled environments include electrical, mechanical and HVAC designs that meet mandatory fire and energy codes while improving energy efficiency significantly.
Through these practices, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company continues to develop and incubate software as well as engineer hardware to provide additional control over the commercial cultivation method. The company’s science-based approach reveals any growth anomalies before the human eye can see them. This makes it possible to monitor all facets of production, identify cultivation problems based upon scientific data, and implement immediate corrective action, if needed.
The future of commercial cannabis cultivation hinges on using science to control the growing environment in order to remain competitive and deliver a premium grade of product on a consistent basis. The company holds a competitive advantage through its ability to produce premium cannabis products at a significantly lower cost per gram than direct competitors and others in the cannabis industry.
Innovations within the sector that create efficiencies and successful brands will become highly valued. Green Hygienics and its forward-thinking management team are constantly studying the market dynamics of the cannabis industry in North America and abroad while actively pursuing possible expansion opportunities. The company is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and establishing operations in San Diego, California, targeting the $5 billion California cannabis market.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. If you were wondering how fast marijuana could become a mainstream substance, the Church of England has just provided further proof that this once heavily stigmatized plant is getting the recognition and acceptance that it deserves. The Church of England has instructed its number crunchers to start making investments in medical marijuana companies.
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.

Endonovo Therapeutics Inc. (ENDV)
Endonovo Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ENDV) ("Endonovo" or the "Company"), a commercial-stage developer of non-invasive Electroceutical™ therapeutic devices, announced today its initial plans and strategy for a national rollout of its SofPulse® targeted pulsed electromagnetic field (tPEMF) therapy device to hospitals throughout the United States.
Endonovo Therapeutics Inc. (ENDV) develops, manufactures and distributes evolutionary medical devices focused on the rapid healing of wounds and reduction of pain, edema and inflammation on and in the human body. These wearable, non-invasive medical devices are designed to deliver the company’s proprietary, patent protected Electroceutical™ Therapy targeting inflammation, cardiovascular diseases, chronic kidney disease and central nervous system (“CNS”) disorders.
In accord with its mission to transform the field of medicine through innovation, Endonovo’s bioelectric Electroceutical™ devices harness bioelectricity to restore key electrochemical processes that initiate anti-inflammatory processes and growth factors in the body necessary for healing to rapidly occur. Endonovo’s current portfolio of commercial-stage devices address chronic kidney disease, liver disease non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), cardiovascular and peripheral artery disease (PAD), and ischemic stroke.
SofPulse® Electroceutical ™ Therapy is an easy-to-place, non-invasive device that delivers pulsed electromagnetic frequencies to enhance post-surgical recovery. Used as a stand-alone therapy or integrated into any treatment protocol, SofPulse®’s?targeted?pulsed electromagnetic field?(tPEMF)?transmits gentle pulses to the tissue causing a positive biological effect to help reduce swelling and accelerate the body’s natural recovery process. The low levels of electromagnetic fields are completely safe and are 1000 times lower than those emitted by a mobile phone.?
Because SofPulse® lessens the pain of post-surgical recovery, the patient requires far less prescription medications, thereby minimizing or eliminating the adverse side effects of narcotics and anti-inflammatory medication. Studies have shown a greater than 2.2-fold reduction in narcotic use over the first 48 hours post-procedure. Patients with less pain and medication may move around sooner, which further stimulates the body’s natural response to healing.
Endonovo’s Electroceutical™ Therapy is cleared by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the palliative treatment of pain and post-surgical edema (swelling) and is CE-marked in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) for the promotion of wound healing and the palliative treatment of pain and post-surgical edema. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) has also certified Electroceutical™ Therapy for the treatment of chronic wounds.

City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR)
Budd Hutt Inc. ("Budd Hutt" or the "Company"), a private company of which City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR), a company listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange ("CVG" or "City View") holds a 19.9% equity interest, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire eight pre-license retail cannabis store locations in the Alberta market.
City View Green Holdings Inc.'s (CSE: CVGR) (formerly Icon Exploration Inc.) primary objective is to create a well-diversified company focused on assessing and potentially acquiring targets in the cannabis industry. Icon Exploration recently signed a formal share exchange agreement relating to its proposed acquisition of privately held City View Green (“CVG”), a vertically integrated cannabis company incorporated under the laws of Ontario, Canada. CVG’s application to Health Canada for an A6ccess to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) license is now at the in-depth review stage of the licensing process.
CVG is preparing a 40,000-square-foot growing facility near Toronto to produce pharmaceutical-grade cannabis once its ACMPR license is granted. About half of the facility will initially be outfitted with state-of-the-art LED lighting, HVAC and dehumidification systems, and automation technologies to optimize the quality, safety and consistency of cannabis production. About 4,000 square feet will be devoted to an extraction laboratory featuring an ultra-efficient CO2 supercritical extraction process with plans to include ethanol extraction technology in the future.
Another 4.3 acres remains available for future construction of up to 125,000 square feet of grow and extraction space. Production plans include producing high quality edible products, distillates, and water-soluble products for the rapidly expanding CBD-infused (cannabidiol) beverage market.
Icon and CVG have assembled a talented team that includes a Master Grower with cannabis-industry experience to manage indoor grow operations and an extraction expert whose expertise in developing and launching new products was honed while working in Washington state’s cannabis sector. Having gained experience in the Washington state market the extraction expert has a number of brand ideas and recreational cannabis products that became popular in the Washington market as well as a number of in-licensing branding opportunities available to CVG. CVG has also negotiated an agreement with a private company seeking 37 retail cannabis licenses in Alberta, Canada, that provides a reciprocal exchange of shares, product, shelf space and distribution lines. Early discussions with various entities in Europe to arrange an off-take agreement for CBD oils and extracts are also underway.
The Canadian medical cannabis market has steadily been growing with an average 10 percent increase in patients each month. Now that the Canadian federal government has legalized recreational cannabis for adult users nationwide, analysts project a compound annual growth rate of nearly 78 percent from 2018 to 2021, reaching an estimated $3 billion by 2021, ArcView Market Research reports. One study from Deloitte pegged the potential economic impact of legalized medical and recreational marijuana in Canada – including transportation, licensing fees and security – at more than $22 billion over the coming years. Health Canada’s most recent data show that sales of cannabis extracts grew 961 percent in the second quarter of 2017, compared to an 89 percent increase in growth of dried cannabis during the same period.
City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR), closed the day's trading session at $0.11, even for the day, on 2,000 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 218,077 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0949/$0.465.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
CFN Media Group ("CFN Media"), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry, announces publication of an article discussing Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP). Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report highlighting the company, which examines the recent news that DehydraTECH(TM) is credited as part of the major appeal of Nuka Enterprises LLC’s 1906 cannabis edibles.
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 $0.8508, off by 2.20%, on 20,823 volume with 46 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 104,504 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTCQB: NUGS)
Los Angeles-based Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. (OTC: NUGS) today announces it is finalizing negotiations for a series of strategic transactions that could reshape the California cannabis marketplace. Under the terms of the agreements, which are being negotiated and are not final, the Company will gain significant indoor, outdoor and greenhouse cannabis cultivation operations; an existing cannabis retail presence; a team of highly experienced cultivators and managers; and a direct cash infusion from a strategic investment group. Also today, the company was highlighted in a publication from Financialnewsmedia.com, examining how, since the early 1960’s… or maybe even earlier… people in the U.S. have been growing cannabis/marijuana for personal use and for sale on the black markets. They would set up crop locations in remote areas, or in a clearing in a forest, or in the middle of corn fields. Some even used nets like the military to hide their operations from the air! All of these techniques were eventually foiled by the authorities over time… which caused the ‘outlaw’ cannabis growers to move their operations inside to escape detection.
Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTCQB: NUGS), headquartered in Los Angeles, California, is focused on supporting entrepreneurial growth within the fast-growing legal cannabis sector. Through a selective portfolio of subsidiaries, Cannabis Strategic Ventures offers outsourced personnel solutions tailor-made to match the growth dynamics of cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, dispensaries and other cannabis marketplace participants. The company also pursues investment opportunities in the areas of real estate, cultivation, extraction, distribution, packaging, dispensary operations, and branded products within the cannabis space.
The legalization of adult-use sales in California is expected to create nearly 99,000 cannabis industry jobs in the state by 2021, representing about a third of all cannabis jobs nationwide, and 146,000 jobs overall when indirect and induced efforts are considered, according to Arcview Market Research. By 2021, direct cannabis industry employment will top 291,500 FTE jobs, with a total employment effect of nearly 414,000 FTEs across all legal cannabis states, according to the report.
Cannabis Strategic Ventures believes its staffing capabilities will be in a similar state of demand. The company in April 2018 completed a definitive agreement to acquire Worldwide Staffing Group, Inc., which booked approximately $1.5 million in revenues in 2017.
Worldwide will operate within Cannabis Strategic Ventures as an independent and separate wholly owned subsidiary providing strictly non-cannabis related employment and staffing services. As Worldwide continues to expand its operations in general clerical and administrative, marketing, accounting, and other verticals, Cannabis Strategic Ventures will leverage the subsidiary’s expertise to expand its business operations further into the cannabis staffing arena, with an emphasis on the California markets.
Cannabis Strategic Ventures’ BudHire™ subsidiary is an outsourced employment service specifically designed to meet the needs of growing cannabis-related business operations, utilizes a proven recruiting formula to match the most qualified candidates to a broad spectrum of cannabis-related jobs. Under the BudHire™ brand, Cannabis Strategic Ventures offers temporary, seasonal, permanent staffing solutions, as well as professional employment organization services and human resources consulting to the cannabis industry.
Cannabis Strategic Ventures portfolio also includes Pure Applied Sciences Inc. and its brand “PureOrganix™,” a line of high quality concentrate, organic and pure cannabis oils that conform with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and meet FDA guidelines for Active Pharmaceuticals Products (API). The acquisition includes all intellectual properties, including formulations and technologies, and related accessories of Pure Applied Sciences.
Cannabis Strategic Ventures Pure Applied Sciences subsidiary, has a cannabis concentrate extraction services agreement with CP Logistics LLC (“CPL”), a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of Sunniva Inc. (CSE:SNN) (OTCQX:SNNVF). Under this agreement, CPL will perform white label services producing high quality, ultra-purified cannabis extracts out of its Sun-Oil Facility in Cathedral City, California, for Pure Applied Sciences under the Pure Organix brand name.
The management team at Cannabis Strategic Ventures believes there is incredible opportunity to carve-out and control specific industry niches, to create unique cannabis consumer branded products, and to expand into other sub-sectors of the cannabis marketplace.
Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTCQB: NUGS), closed the day's trading session at $0.75, off by 11.76%, on 280,413 volume with 164 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 62,034 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.748/$5.94.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE)
Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (FRANKFURT: NXFE) is pleased to announce additional results from its ongoing 2019 shallow vertical diamond drilling program at its flagship Cyclops, nickel/cobalt development project, Indonesia. The drilling is part of a multi-faceted exploration program aimed at confirming historical results and producing a resource estimate in late 2019. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how growth in demand for batteries is pushing up nickel production around the world.
Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE) is a Canada-based exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of production-grade cobalt deposits, a key raw material input for the growing lithium-ion battery industry.
Pacific Rim Cobalt and its Cyclops Nickel-Cobalt Project, located in the Depapre District, Jayapura Regency, Papua Province, Republic of Indonesia, is uniquely positioned in a region with potentially the largest source of cobalt outside of Africa. Strategically located near China, the world’s largest cobalt buyer, the Cyclops Project is a laterite (iron-hosted) mineral prospect, rich in cobalt and nickel. Cobalt consumption in China is on-track to use over 8,000 tonnes of cobalt annually by 2021 for electric vehicle production alone and is projected to remain the world’s largest cobalt consumer for many years to come.
Global demand for renewable power is fueling a massive shift from traditional energy supply chain economics to cobalt-reliant lithium-ion batteries, the world’s most widely used power source for portable applications such as electric vehicles and other high-tech applications.
Pacific Rim Cobalt management has concluded that strategic access to major markets offers the most important factor to servicing the rising demand for cobalt. The company’s acquisition of its initial asset in Indonesia offers near surface, strong nickel-cobalt mineralization in an area with excellent infrastructure including a nearby workforce, supplies, sealed roads, ocean access, nearby port facility and gentle topography. The project area, nestled on the north coast of Papua, Indonesia, establishes Pacific Rim Cobalt well within the economically attractive ocean-going transportation range to Asia and its lucrative, growing industrial markets.
Exploration efforts are currently focused on establishing a maiden compliant resource for the Cyclops project, both in historically identified and drill-tested prospects as well as previously unexplored areas of the claims. During the first nine months of 2018, the company focused on assembling the necessary agreements to access northern areas of the project hosting historically identified mineralized zones. Mapping, sampling and a mini-bulk sample within the mineralized zones has been completed, along with a small-scale program in the previously unexplored far southern area of the project. With surface access to priority targets now established, Pacific Rim Cobalt will initiate drilling and extract additional mini-bulk samples for further metallurgical testing.
“We are excited and optimistic about the unique possibility of developing this project into an asset that will add shareholder value and position the company to play a future role in the battery metals supply chain,” Pacific Rim Cobalt CEO Ranjeet Sundher recently stated (http://nnw.fm/u1HNs). “We expect the near-surface nature of cobalt/nickel mineralization at the Cyclops project will lend itself well to low-cost, logistically straightforward drilling. We thus anticipate the opportunity to undertake a resource calculation study, as well as ongoing metallurgy and process option testing, will present itself in the near future. It’s going to be a busy year ahead, and we look forward to getting the drills turning and building value.”
Pacific Rim Cobalt’s world-class management team includes Sundher, who has over 20 years of capital markets experience. Sundher is also president of Canrim Ventures Ltd., a Singaporean advisory firm specializing in early stage project finance and structure. He previously founded Indogold Exploration, a Jakarta-based mining service firm, and has raised over $40 million for companies in which he was a founder/partner.
Chief Financial Officer Steve Vanry has 25 years of professional experience in senior management positions with public and private natural resources companies, providing expertise in capital markets corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, accounting and financial reporting.
Andre Talaska serves as country manager and technical supervisor. He has over 30 years of experience in the mining and exploration industry and has held senior positions with several companies in Australia and southeast Asia. Shakir Juffry, business development/engineering, is a chemical engineer and extractive metallurgist by background training who has over 20 years of experience in the Indonesian mining and minerals exploration field. Toto Suarto Sajali, operation and development manager, is a mining engineer with over 15 years of experience in Indonesian project assessment, development and operations.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade Inc. (OTC:SGMD) announces the availability of an audio press release titled, “Demand for CBD Places Power in Hands of Extraction Providers.” To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/48P8p. To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/3TxSW.
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

Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF)
Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) is a medical device technology provider focused on addressing dermatological needs in the multi-billion-dollar cosmeceutical industry. The company’s effective, non-invasive and pain-free skin care is based on proprietary technology which has received Class II medical device status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Therma Bright’s portfolio includes products, devices and treatments that have both cosmetic and medicinal or therapeutic benefits, such as for relief of pain, itch and inflammation resulting from more than 20,000 types of insect and marine life bites and stings, including bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitos, black flies and jellyfish.
The Company’s current focus is to market its products online through various social media networks, and to eventually re-establish relationships with major North American and Global retailers.
The company currently has two products on the market and another in the research and development phase:
InterceptCS™ is a thermal therapy device for the treatment and prevention of cold sores caused by the herpes simplex Type 1 virus*. Symptoms typically include sores around the mouth and lips which InterceptCS™ treats by application of controlled topical heat with no risk of burning the skin. When used at the first sign of an oncoming cold sore application of InterceptCS™ can prevent symptoms from developing. Infrared energy and light from the device penetrate the skin killing cells infected with the virus.
InterceptCS™ is available without prescription and comprises a battery powered ergonomic hand-held unit and a disposable single-use treatment activator. Therma Bright has completed prototyping of multi-use activators for InterceptCS™. The company plans to bring to market 5, 10 or 20 multi-use activations at prices that will offer customers greater value than the current single-use activator.
The other Therma Bright product currently under development is TherOZap™, a next generation thermal therapy device powered by the company’s core technology, which is approved by the FDA as a Class II medical device for the relief of the symptoms of insect bites. Therma Bright is testing a new easier-to-use prototype of the device for effectiveness against Zika virus and other diseases carried by mosquitos. Once the technology proves effective, Therma Bright intends to seek regulatory approvals and extend the prototype enhancements to a new commercial version of TherOZap™.
Therma Bright is also conducting research and development on a unique thermal therapy device that would incorporate medical grade cannabis or cannabidiol (“CDB”) sourced from hemp as a cream or gel to provide relief of back, knee and other joint pain. In preparation, the company has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary to hold any technology for use or application of cannabis. Once approvals are secured, the company plans to sell the device through licensed cannabis producers or retailers across Canada and in international markets where use of cannabis has been legalized. The company has initiated trademark and patent protection for its thermal therapy technology incorporating medical cannabis. Therma Bright has indicated it will seek an acquisition to help further development of this product.
A report by market intelligence firm Mordor Intelligence put the global cosmeceuticals market at a value of nearly US$47 billion in 2017 and projects it to be worth more than $80 billion by 2023, growing at a rate of almost 9.5 percent annually. Medical research estimates that somewhere between 20 percent and 40 percent of the population suffer occasional cold sore outbreaks. In Canada those figures would mean five to 10 million people, and in the U.S. some 40 million to 80 million, with recurring cold sores, representing a substantial potential market for Therma Bright.
Rob Fia serves as Therma Bright chairman and CEO. Fia has extensive contacts in the investment community and the financial sector as well as knowledge of various Canadian stock exchange listing processes and requirements. His 18 years in the investment business has included equity research and advising promising early stage companies on corporate finance. Therma Bright CFO Victor Hugo is a senior financial analyst at Marrelli Support Services Inc., for which he provides CFO, accounting, regulatory compliance, and management advisory services to companies listed on the TSX, TSX Venture Exchange and other Canadian and US exchanges.
**Based on double blind placebo study, the InterceptCS™ is approved by Health Canada for the claim “For prevention of cold sores when used within 3 hours of the onset of the prodrome.” The InterceptCS™ is not approved by the United States FDA or any claim of clinical indication, clinical efficacy, and/or cure or prevention of disease.
Therma Bright, Inc. (OTC: THRBF), closed the day's trading session at $0.022, even for the day, on 250 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 19 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.009/$0.029.
