MetaStat, Inc. (MTST)

First Penny Picks, StocksImpossible, Pumps and Dumps, Goldman Small Cap Research, Innovative Marketing, Club Penny Stocks Network, OTCBB Journal, and The MicrocapNews reported earlier on MetaStat, Inc. (MTST), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

MetaStat, Inc. is a personalized medicine company developing therapeutic and diagnostic treatment solutions for cancer patients. MetaStat develops and commercializes diagnostic products and novel therapeutics for the early and reliable prediction and treatment of systemic metastasis - the process by which cancer spreads from a primary tumor through the bloodstream to other areas of the body. OTCQB-listed, MetaStat is based in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Company’s emphasis is on breast, prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers, where systemic metastasis is responsible for about 90 percent of all deaths. Fundamentally, MetaStat’s core expertise includes an understanding of the mechanisms and pathways that drive tumor cell invasion and metastasis, as well as drug resistance to certain targeted therapies and cytotoxic chemotherapies.

The foundation of the Company’s function-based diagnostic platform technology is on the identification and understanding of the important role of the mena protein and its isoforms (a common pathway for the development of systemic metastatic disease in all epithelial-based solid tumors).

The design of the MetaSite Breast™ and MenaCalc™ product lines are to accurately stratify patients based on their individual risk of metastasis and to enable clinicians to better customize cancer treatment decisions through positively identifying patients with a high-risk of metastasis who need aggressive therapy and by sparing patients with a low-risk of metastasis from the damaging side effects and expense of chemotherapy.

The intention of the MetaSite Breast™ test is for use in patients with early stage (stage 1-3), invasive breast cancer who have node-negative or node positive (1-3), estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-negative disease.

The MetaSite Breast™ test measures the process of systemic metastasis. MenaCalc™, a platform of diagnostic assays, based on the measurement of the balance of the Mena protein isoforms, is broadly applicable in solid epithelial-based cancers.

In February of this year, MetaStat announced positive results and the successful completion of the pilot research project with Celgene Corporation. In preclinical models of aggressive breast cancer, data showed cancer cell invasion and metastasis was reversed via inhibition of a specific serine-threonine kinase responsible for activation of the MenaINV protein. Over-expression of the MenaINV protein isoform has been shown to play a vital role in driving progression and metastatic dissemination in aggressive types of solid tumors.

Last week, MetaStat announced that it presented positive results from preclinical studies showing treatment with MAPKAPK2 kinase inhibitors reverse MENA-driven aggressive tumor cell phenotypes and considerably decrease metastasis at the Cancer Dormancy and Residual Disease meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in Montreal, Quebec, which took place on June 20, 2018.

Mr. Douglas A. Hamilton, President and Chief Executive Officer of MetaStat, stated, “Until recently, the MENA pathway was considered to be an undruggable target. These results show inhibition of the MENA pathway and reversal of MENA-dependent phenotypes are possible by targeting MAPKAPK2. We are leveraging a proven and highly successful therapeutic strategy in oncology to develop proprietary first-in-class MAPKAPK2 kinase inhibitors.”

MetaStat, Inc. (MTST), closed Monday's trading session at $0.55, down 9.84%, on 1,500 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 60 days is 3,919 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.52/$1.41.

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight American Helium (AHELF).

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF) is a resource exploration company focused on the global growth of technology-driven demand for helium and the development of high grade helium resources in North America. Through such activities, it strives to contribute to the global helium inventory and become an industry leading producer.

The Canadian helium exploration and development company is led by an experienced management and technical team. The Company is currently focused on three properties in prolific areas for Helium exploration.

Recently, the company executed an agreement with Holbrook Basin Energy LLC of Golden, CO to undertake an exploration drill program in Arizona. The Arizona project location is in the “Four Corners” area where the States of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona meet, and in the helium productive Holbrook Basin, a well-established helium production district where concentrations of the gas are as high as 10%. The area has good potential for additional discovery and production. The abundant nature of the region has led to anecdotal statements over the years that “Arizona is the Saudi Arabia of helium.”

The Company holds 100 percent working interest and 87.5 percent net revenue interest in 12 federal leases at its Bruin Point property spanning across 17,000 acres in the Greater Uintah Basin, Carbon County, Utah (the Carbon County project). American Helium is undertaking preparations for the drilling of an exploration well, and as part of that process a Notice of Staking (NOS) has been filed with the offices of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Evaluation is currently ongoing to determine potential additional acquisitions in regions that are known for their helium production. The Company is planning exploration wells with the prospect of capturing new resources and improving the Company’s market position during the year.

The Company has also executed a project agreement with Yankee Resources LLC of Golden, CO and has appointed LoneTree Energy & Associates LLC to acquire certain acreage in SE Colorado. The project consists of two parts. The first objective is to re-drill two wells that have proven helium resources. Both were plugged and abandoned in the mid-nineties, offering the potential for near term production. The second part of the project will offer an exploration focus through the acquisition of land and a subsequent 3D seismic survey aimed at further defining areas of likely helium accumulations.

The company set up a Denver satellite office aimed at overseeing the regional operations in Utah better and at facilitating expansion in SE Colorado. Company President and CEO Frank Jacobs, a petroleum engineer with 35+ years of operational experience, will oversee U.S.-based operations.

Global helium demand is driven by a number of different industries. Primarily, the military, healthcare, nuclear, aviation and electronics. A colorless, odorless and non-toxic gas, helium is lighter than air and it has the lowest boiling point of all elements. This property makes it essential for a wide variety of tech based applications.

The U.S. ranks as the largest producer and consumer of helium. North America accounts for approximately a third of the world’s helium consumption (2.6 billion cubic feet of helium per year). The world’s annual consumption of helium is set at eight billion cubic feet per year. As far as production goes, the U.S. is responsible for 55 percent of the global helium supply. Qatar, Algeria and Russia come next.

The fact that production efforts have been centralized and focused in just a few countries has long been a source of industry concern. “The concentration of production among a handful of countries will continue to be the leading driver of uncertainty of helium supply and price volatility. We are working to identify, explore and place into production helium assets. With the right assets and the necessary funding we are confident we can achieve this objective ,” Frank Jacobs said.

The price of helium has doubled since 2010 because this unique gas cannot be substituted in its applications. In addition, a Qatar production blockage has had a massive negative impact on the helium supply. In the summer of 2017, Qatar’s RasGas closed down both of its plants, responsible for approximately 32 percent of the global helium demand. This shift has contributed to highly favorable supply and demand fundamentals for the remaining market players.

Experts predict that the demand for the gas will continue to grow in the years to come. The global helium market set to exceed $1.5 billion by 2020, advancing at a compound annual growth rate of 9 percent, according to Technavio analysts. Over 20 percent of the global helium demand is for healthcare applications. MRI machines are being installed in hospitals more frequently than ever before, potentially increasing the demand for helium in the medical industry. Innovative aerospace projects and technical applications are also expected to elevate the helium market forecasts in the years to come. Large corporations such as Google and Netflix have both been buying up significant amounts of helium, as the gas can increase the storage capacity of hard drives while also bringing down power consumption.

Additional information about the American Helium research and exploration activities will become available in the months to come. The company is positioning itself to capture the numerous opportunities stemming from increasing helium prices and the growing global demand.

American Helium (AHELF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2974, up 3.19%, on 126,795 volume with 29 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 14,881 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2755/$0.77.

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Koios Beverage Corp. (KBEV).

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) flagship product, Koios, is a GMP-certified dietary supplement. Made from natural ingredients and backed by science, Koios is designed to improve focus, memory, mental drive, clarity and energy. Growing worldwide market for nootropics as a safe way for people to boost brain function and earn a competitive edge. Non-prescription cognitive enhancers officially became a billion-dollar industry in 2015. Koios, via its GMP-certified and FDA-compliant lab, has developed nootropic products that are made only with high-quality, natural ingredients and are available prescription-free. Koios is available in stores and online and is distributed worldwide.

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) develops and distributes nature-based products that boost brain function, enhance health, and improve productivity. Its core vision is to help a billion people worldwide live more productively through the development of nootropics, which are supplements that improve cognitive abilities.

The company’s flagship product, Koios, is a GMP-certified dietary supplement. Made from natural ingredients and backed by science, Koios is designed to improve focus, memory, mental drive, clarity and energy. The company produces Koios in the following formulations:

  • Powder supplements containing nootropics as well as caffeine and lion’s mane and chaga mushrooms;
  • Vegan-friendly capsules;
  • Canned beverages containing nootropics along with MCT oil to burn fat and increase metabolism.

Not to be mistaken with prescription-only drugs which are at times used for similar effects, nootropics are over-the-counter dietary supplements; some of which, like Koios, contain ingredients that are currently used in the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The global field of nootropics is growing rapidly and expected to reach USD $6,059.4 Mn by 2024 with a CAGR of 17.9 percent from 2016 to 2024.

According to media reports, there is believed to be significant and growing use of nootropics among high-achieving students and professionals. The UK’s leading Guardian newspaper found that nootropics are commonly used in Silicon Valley by computer industry professionals who want to “hack” their minds and maximize their productivity without any possible negative effects on the brain.

Koios was born out of the personal struggles of its founder and CEO, Chris Miller, who has ADHD. Miller found that the symptoms of his condition held him back when navigating the competitive modern workplace. Unhappy with the effects of the Adderall he was prescribed, Chris began a search for a natural remedy that would improve his attention and mental capacity.

Speaking of his struggles at this time, Miller says, “Coffee and energy drinks were no longer helping me. Eventually, I was drinking so much caffeine that I was beginning to notice negative and troubling health effects.” He adds, “I believed there had to be a better way. Better technology that the earth was providing that I could implement and not only boost my daily performance but take care of my brain and body long-term.” After years of experiments and with the help of leading scientists, he developed Koios, named after the Greek Titan who represented rational intelligence.

Koios contains the following ingredients, among others:

  • Vitamin B12: Crucial for the function of the nervous system and the synthesis of DNA, B12 also helps in the creation of red blood cells.
  • Vitamin B6: This vitamin is crucial for brain development among children and brain function in adults. B6 is also important in the production of key hormones: serotonin, which regulates mood, norepinephrine, which helps us handle stress, and dopamine.
  • Huperzine A: Developed from the Chinese club moss plant, huperzine A is used on Alzheimer’s patients to boost their memories. It is also used to raise energy levels and alertness and is the subject of medical trials to test its efficacy when combined with other drugs.
  • Bacopa: Also known as brahmi, bacopa is an Indian herb used in Ayurvedic medicine to improve concentration and memory. Modern science has recognized its effectiveness, and it is used to treat symptoms caused by Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD and anxiety.
  • Ciwujia: Sports scientists have been interested in this herb since they heard of how mountain climbers in Tibet use it to boost their performance at high altitudes. Peer-reviewed research has shown that Ciwujia has clear positive effects on endurance.

A full breakdown of Koios’ active ingredients is available on the company website.

Additionally, safety is paramount for Koios, with all its products developed in a high-grade nutraceutical laboratory which is GMP-certified and in compliance with FDA guidelines. Koios only uses high-quality ingredients sourced from the best possible locations in order to deliver a product that is not only safe but also “one of the world’s greatest nootropic blends.”

The company’s products can be found online and in stores, both across the United States and internationally, via a continuously growing distribution network.

Koios CEO Chris Miller is supported by a team with strong credentials in medical supplement start-ups, corporate finance and sales, which includes CFO/Director Anthony Jackson, Director Scott Walters, Director Konstantine Lichtenwald and Vice President of Sales Gina Burrus.

With people seeking a mental edge and cognitive boost, Koios believes that there is an opening in the market for its nature-based, over-the-counter nootropics, especially when current prescription medicines have worrying side effects..

Koios Beverage Corp. (KBEV), closed the day's trading session at $0.23, even for the day, on 42,550 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2099/$0.5299.

Customers may choose from both free and paid solutions suitable for campaigns of all sizes, targeting multiple channels on the web, mobile and social media.

A team of seasoned, passionate gaming executives, led by president and CEO Darold Parken, has worked together for more than 15 years developing games and gaming systems that are still used today by some of the largest gaming companies in the world. This accomplished executive team founded Chartwell Technologies, acquired in 2011 by Amaya Gaming, which now is known as The Stars Group (Nasdaq: TSG) with a market cap of over $5 billion.

Gamify offers a selection of easily customizable gaming apps featuring a customer’s branded e-store in addition to tailored landing pages, technical support, real-time analytics, data collection and an engaging marketing campaign. Gamify’s patent-pending app comes complete with unique user incentives that draw consumers in with games and prizes, which in turn engages shoppers, turning them into buyers and building brand loyalty.

The gamification market is rapidly expanding and projected to be worth $22 billion by 2022, with a CAGR of 41 percent. DeepMarkit is the only publicly listed company focused solely on this exploding market that embraces any size of business, from the mom-and-pop shops to the blue-chip giants. DeepMarkit’s management team knows that increasing a customer’s conversion rate by a mere 1 percent has the potential to double revenue, which is why Gamify’s app and its ability to transform simple shoppers into engaged buyers is so compelling.

“Our marketing platform enables customers to build branded games that incentivize audiences, generate leads, and drive sales. Businesses need a way to stand out from the crowd,” Parken states in an investor’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97hJoRKR92k). “DeepMarkit’s gamification platform gives customers that way to stand out and it’s a way that they can afford. That’s the strength of our platform. For a relatively small amount of money, any business can create a very powerful, high quality customer engagement using gamification.”

DeepMarkit recently entered into a joint marketing agreement with ITN International (“ITN”), a global leader in trade show data capture and analytics. The agreement will enable the 1.5 million exhibitors at the 125-plus yearly events serviced by ITN to purchase a customizable campaign with prize delivery and branded games that can be used in collaboration with ITN’s lead retrieval solutions. DeepMarkit and ITN are currently integrating DeepMarkit’s patent-pending gamification platform directly into ITN’s exhibitor portal.

“We started DeepMarkit because we have a passion for games and we believe in the power of games, not just for entertainment but more importantly as a tool for business,” Parken said. “DeepMarkit is a gamification company. What we mean by that is that we create innovative ways to use games for business purposes. Games to generate customer leads, games to promote products, deliver rewards, build brand awareness and customer loyalty.”

Selected as the winner of the New Company/Product pitch competition at the Retail Global 2017 Conference held in Las Vegas, Gamify’s platform has also attracted a $1.5 million investment from Allstate International LLC in Hong Kong. The investment gives Allstate a 10 percent stake in DeepMarkit and a great opportunity to bring the Gamify platform into the burgeoning Asian gaming market.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (PRVCF).

Health sciences company PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) is developing innovative options for preventive and curative therapies using some of nature’s most compelling and creative pathways. The company’s Sol-gel delivery platform is expected to be the first sustained-release, CBD-based nose-to-brain delivery system targeting a range of indications including epileptic seizures, inflammation, pain and other neurological disorders, an article discussing the research states (http://cnw.fm/c8WLc).

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE:18H), headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a health sciences company dedicated to researching and developing innovative options for preventive and curative therapies utilizing organic and Nature Identical™ products. The company is strategically staking out select positions in the medically acute areas of diabetes and obesity, pain management, neurological disorders and cancer.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. had its beginnings in 2009 when Stephen Van Deventer, a seasoned businessman and venture capitalist, and Kimberly Van Deventer, a successful entrepreneur, met and formed a business partnership. The duo created Cornerstone Global Partners, a venture capital and business development company, and became involved in numerous ventures including building companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. Taking their interest in the health and wellness market further, the pair began researching how nature and science can work together to benefit health-conscious consumers. Coining and trademarking the word “PreveCeutical” – a combination of the words “preventive” and “pharmaceutical” – was a precursor to the company’s formation and incorporation in October 2015.

The company’s first product was developed in the Dominican Republic and is now marketed and distributed worldwide by PreveCeutical. It is a Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom product sold under the trade name CELLB9®. This product is an oral dilute solution infused with select peptides sourced exclusively from the blue scorpion (Rhopalurus princeps) found only in Caribbean nations. The active potentiated ingredients in CELLB9, which have been used in over 40 countries for over a decade, appear to support health at a deep, cellular level. PreveCeutical’s research team is using proprietary chemistry to generate Nature Identical™ peptides derived from natural compounds found in Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom with the goal of eventually treating, regulating and preventing cancer progression. Peptides are also being used to target an array of disease indications including metabolic disorders, pain management, cancers, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.

PreveCeutical is developing the first nose-to-brain delivery system of cannabinoids (CBDs) with a novel process that prepares insoluble drug-containing nano-micelles and successfully incorporating them into a proprietary sol-gels application, essentially creating a targeted drug delivery vehicle. Intended for use via a nasal spray, this unique formulation rapidly gels upon contact with mucosal tissue, which paves the way for direct nose-to-brain delivery. This novel application eliminates first pass metabolism (stomach, intestines, liver), potentially improving bioavailability and delivering extended time release formulations that may alleviate side effects of higher dosage therapeutics. This CBD-based patented formula is projected to be deployed in selected markets with licensed medical marijuana companies within 18 months.

PreveCeutical is working with four leading Australian research centers to develop a curative therapy for diabetes and obesity. This four-year program involves engineering a novel approach that selectively targets the gene that encodes for the protein PTP-1B, which is implicated and over-expressed in both type-2 diabetes and obesity. PreveCeutical’s gene-silencing technology would effectively “turn off” the genetic signal which leads to the over-production of this key protein molecule, bringing it back down to safe, normalized levels, and prevent the body from storing excessive fat. Diabetes kills one person every six seconds, with more than $800 billion spent globally on the disease.

Another exciting joint venture, established with Sports 1 Marketing, will focus on the therapeutic potential in the peptides and proteins connected to the Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom to potentially treat mild brain injury concussions. Developing a therapeutic product geared towards athletes who suffer from concussions could help alleviate suffering experienced by those who are affected by head trauma.

PreveCeutical Medical’s science and research team is led by Dr. Harendra (Harry) Parekh, Ph.D., who is based at the University of Queensland’s (UQ) Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE), and Dr. Makarand Jawadekar, Ph.D., whose 28 years of R&D experience with Pfizer Inc., is applicable in his role as chief science officer. Research collaborators include Dr. Rakesh Veedu, an emerging expert internationally in the field of molecular medicine, and Professor Grant Ramm, who is currently head of a leading medical research institute located in Brisbane, Australia.

PreveCeutical Medical is partnering with leading industry experts and companies in its quest to be a leader in the preventive health sciences sector. Its Research and Development partnership with UniQuest, the main commercialization company for the University of Queensland, provides PreveCeutical with the rights to all intellectual property arising from projects created under the agreement. PreveCeutical Medical Inc.’s management team brings an extensive portfolio of research experience, product development, deep corporate strategy and capital markets leadership to the company’s core.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCQB: PVOTF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF).

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCQB: PVOTF), based in Vancouver, Canada, is an emerging biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals that provide novel treatments for unmet healthcare needs. Pivot’s recent acquisition of BiPhasix ™ Transdermal Drug Delivery technology for the delivery of cannabinoids (CBD) to patients provides the answer for an age-old problem associated with cannabinoid-based therapies: the lack of a robust smoke-less delivery mechanism.

Research into the bioavailability of cannabinoid-based therapeutics shows that rates of absorption vary greatly between smoking cannabis to an orally-consumed product, with a difference noted even between individuals. Cannabinoids are degraded in the stomach and smoking may not appeal to patients for health or lifestyle reasons. Topical delivery, while a better alternative, has suffered from weak formulation issues. Transdermal cannabinoid delivery, on the other hand, could provide a better alternative route since it reduces side effects and bypasses other absorption issues. In addition, transdermal delivery provides the benefit of enabling patients to access a steady stream of medication over a prolonged period with fewer side effects.

Pivot Pharmaceutical’s newly created subsidiary, Pivot Green Stream Health Solutions Inc. (“Pivot Green Stream”), will focus on improving the bioavailability of cannabinoid-based and pharmaceuticals. BiPhasix™ has been tested in FDA and EMA approved human clinical trials, which have shown the delivery system enhances the bioavailability of many drugs and improves clinical outcomes. Pivot Green Stream is tasked with developing several natural health products containing cannabinoids (CBD) that can receive a Health Canada Natural Health Product (NHP) designation. This marketing method ensures a shorter development cycle and faster revenue generation opportunities.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc., which has positioned itself as a growing and crucial vertical in the cannabis industry, represents a compelling opportunity in the biotechnology field. The company’s plans include working with Licensed Producers (LP) and Licensed Dealers (LD) to bring newer therapies to patients. The company has also applied to list on the Canadian Stock Exchange (CSE).

The global medical marijuana market is expected to reach a value of $55.8 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing number of states and countries gaining approval for using cannabis in therapeutic applications is expected to continue driving the market forward.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals has assembled a highly experienced management team, bringing together a wealth of clinical, commercial, product development and financial experience. Among the many healthcare targets in Pivot’s pipeline are cancer supportive care, pain and inflammation, women’s sexual dysfunction, dermatology and eye disease.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V: DNAX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX).

BLOCKStrain Technology (TSX.V: DNAX) recently announced that it has added Derek Pedro to its advisory board, furthering the company’s expertise as it develops its software platform for licensed producers and industry stakeholders. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/DGEm5.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V: DNAX), a full-service software company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks cannabis intellectual property (“IP”) from genome to sale. It is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single source of truth for cannabis strains and their ownership.

With Canada set to legalize marijuana use for recreational purposes, and other jurisdictions following suit around the world, new challenges will emerge regarding the ability to provide a safe and legal inventory of a product that up until now was largely only available on the black market. Cannabis will be heavily tested and regulated by numerous regulatory bodies in Canada. The cannabis industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain specifically helps it address, including:

  • Mandatory Testing: Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient and streamlined, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster;
  • DNA Based Product Validation: The underlying blockchain technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product electronically so any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with that product from genome to sale;
  • Intellectual Property: Third, and perhaps most importantly, the BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. This is important for the industry’s growth as products evolve and develop. If a craft grower, for example, creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, it will be able to protect its intellectual property by simply registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain and locking that data into the blockchain. It will reside there forever and will be readily accessible in the event of future disputes, bringing a level of trust to the industry and ensuring licensing fees are paid to all players in the market.

VERIFICATION = CERTIFICATION

BLOCKStrain’s genetics verification process is authentic and incredibly effective. User groups register by creating an account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered and approved testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain verification administrators, with those results being added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.

Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Registration Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients and consumers are able to not only verify the test but can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain and, just like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified. Verification and certification are earned by all parties for their participation.

SAFE CONSUMER SUPPLY

BLOCKStrain demystifies the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies and consumers by creating a repository of cannabis genomes on an immutable, shared ledger. Thousands of cannabis strains exist and cultivators are breeding new strains all the time. The proliferation of cannabis strains can prove problematic for consumers since there are more than 500 known chemical compounds in a single plant. Furthermore, since several dozens of these compounds have been identified as pharmacologically active, it becomes more and more difficult for consumers to know what they are purchasing.

It is for this reason that being able to quantify the genetics, potency and equivalencies among cannabis products is crucial to the future of legalized cannabis. The difference is not so much in the name or brand attached to the cannabis, but the DNA of the plant itself. BLOCKStrain ensures product integrity, safety, regulatory compliance, product licensing and authenticity – all vital elements for the emerging cannabis industry.  This technology also bolsters the process of meeting government regulatory standards by providing real-time visibility of industry operations to agencies assigned to enforce and regulate cannabis activity.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

BLOCKStrain allows for the defense of intellectual property rights for the grower with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain itself. Proof of ownership for a specific strain of cannabis is paramount in a multibillion dollar industry. Real life ownership disputes have already begun in the industry with legal battles underway. Unfortunately, the framework for resolving these disputes has yet to be defined and they are not likely to be resolved anytime soon.

Consumers and regulators alike want to know whether a cannabis product grown and sold at a local dispensary is safe and meets quality control standards. BLOCKStrain enhances trust of origin from genome-to-sale as cannabis flows through the supply chain, verifying critical steps in the process such as who is growing the plant, which seed is planted and where did it come from, whether pesticides were used, how much was grown, which tests are used to establish quality and potency, where the product is transported and how, and whether possession limits are meeting regulatory standards.

In summary, BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform for cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their varieties into the public domain, all while compensating and rewarding them for their contributions.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX), closed the day's trading session at $0.38, off by 2.56%, on 558,950 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1049/$1.20.

To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/8bAXe. To read the original editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/VBs9c.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.

Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.

Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.

“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”

Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.

Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF).

QMC Quantum Minerals (TSX.V: QMC) (OTC: QMCQF) (FSE: 3LQ) is preparing to take on growing lithium demand as other Western producers struggle to stay in the lithium-ion battery game dominated by Asian producers. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/noZ1B.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) (OTC: QMCQF) 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 $0.2876, off by 4.13%, on 109,107 volume with 40 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 124,023 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0748/$1.46.

After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.

Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.

Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.

“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.

On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY), closed the day's trading session at $0.0015, off by 21.05%, on 13,503,244 volume with 433 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 8,054,154 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0018/$0.0402.
