AXIM Biotechnologies’ focus is on unique, proprietary delivery mechanisms for the introduction of cannabinoids and finding solutions for conditions for which there is presently no effective treatment. The Company is advancing its patented controlled-release cannabinoid gum in studies covering a number of indications.
AXIM’s IP portfolio now includes two fully issued patents – one patent permitting the use of CBD (cannabidiol) in controlled-release, functional chewing gum, and another patent for chewing gum containing natural and synthetic cannabinoids for the treatment of pain, and 15 patent applications in varying stages of approval.
AXIM’s flagship CanChew Plus® contains 10mg of cannabidiol (CBD) obtained from industrial hemp plants. In addition, the Company has its CanChew+ 50®. This product contains 50 mg of CBD. CanChew+ 50®is undergoing clinical trials in patients with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
AXIM Biotechnologies’ pipeline of Intellectual Property (IP) protected cannabinoid-based products also includes MedChew Rx™. This THC/CBD cannabinoid controlled-release chewing gum is to address pain and muscle spasticity in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. It is the world’s first patented cannabinoid controlled-release chewing gum.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA) announced this past February that its major investment company AXIM Biotechnologies successfully executed its first-ever proprietary current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) methodology in the extraction and microencapsulation of cannabinoid molecules for a variety of pharmaceutical delivery formats from cGMP-produced medicinal cannabis.
This breakthrough makes AXIM Biotechnologies the only Company worldwide with the ability to harness the proprietary procedure and provide Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) of such purity from naturally extracted cGMP sources.

The Lost City Project is in the south-eastern part of the Republic of Ecuador, in the Province of Morona-Santiago.
The Project consists of circa 208,000 hectares in 42 concessions occupying the central part of the Cordillera de Cutucu. The concessions extend about 95 km along the Cordillera.
Furthermore, Aurania has three projects in Canton Valais, Switzerland. These are Siviez (Uranium, Copper and Gold), Marécottes (Uranium), and Mont Chemin (Gold). All of these projects are 100 percent held via the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary AuroVallis SARL.
At the end of May, Aurania Resources reported the discovery of a new epithermal zone approximately eight kilometers south of the "Crunchy Hill" region. This new discovery is called "Yawi".
Furthermore, two diatremes (breccia bodies) were found in close by outcrop. The Company states that presumably there is a geological connection between the diatremes and the mineralization.
Rocks in the area are clay-and sericite-altered. Preliminary XRF (x-ray fluorescence) analysis indicates anomalously high levels of mercury and arsenic in selected samples. These are natural pathfinder elements for precious metals. They can be used to vector in to the mineralization.
Aurania's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Keith Barron, said, “The samples from Yawi that have been collected to date have the most impressive epithermal textures I have seen in my career, and the Latorre area contains anomalous levels of arsenic, antimony, mercury, selenium, thallium and silver.”

Zenosense, Inc. (OTC: ZENO)
NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Zenosense (OTC:ZENO), a client of NNW and healthcare technology developer focused on transformational, disruptive medical diagnostic projects. To view the full publication, titled “Diagnostics Play Critical Role in Medical Sector,” visit: http://nnw.fm/8ZAlr.
Zenosense, Inc. (OTC: ZENO) (the “Company”) is a healthcare technology developer that participates in transformational, disruptive medical diagnostic projects; particularly handheld devices used at the Point of Care which are displacing slow and expensive laboratory tests.
Zenosense is primarily focused on the development and commercialization of MIDS Cardiac™ through the Company’s joint venture ownership in MIDS Medical Limited (“MML”). MIDS Cardiac is in development as a cost-effective, handheld Point of Care (“POC”) diagnostic device and disposable test strip for the early, rapid detection of suspected acute myocardial infarction (“AMI”, or “heart attack”).
Identification of very low levels of cardiac markers can significantly accelerate critical triage, diagnosis, treatment and disposition of patients reporting chest pain. Cardiac troponin is well documented as the preferred biomarker for diagnosis of AMI, with evidence continuing to demonstrate that high sensitivity troponin is the most powerful prognostic biomarker for the assessment of cardiovascular risk in the general population. However, highly sensitive troponin assays are currently available only on state of the art, central laboratory analyzers. These analyzers are extremely expensive, not generally available at the POC and slow to turnaround results (typically 60 minutes) when time is critical.
True, high-sensitivity devices are not available in smaller handheld devices at the POC, where they are most needed. This is because the optical detection systems generally used in central laboratory analyzers cannot be effectively miniaturized.
MIDS Cardiac uses the patented MIDS technology platform, exclusively available to MML. Instead of using conventional optical detection, MIDS can detect and quantify assay beads nano-magnetically. This means it can be incorporated in a small device expected to achieve highly sensitive detection levels, which can support true high sensitivity cardiac biomarker tests in emergency settings, at the POC.
Harnessing world-class expertise, the MML laboratory is located at the prestigious Sci-Tech Daresbury campus in the U.K., internationally recognized for leading-edge, scientific research and commercial development. MML has the sole rights to the MIDS technology platform, which is protected by patent applications already granted in China and the USA, and applications now in the national phase in all other key geographic areas.
MIDS Cardiac aims to provide a single troponin I or T test within 3 minutes and three panel assay (additional cardiac biomarkers) on a disposable test strip within 8 minutes, using a hand-held device costing a fraction of the price of laboratory analyzers.
MIDS Cardiac should only require a pin prick of blood for a single assay test carried out on an easy-to-use, disposable microfluidic test strip. MIDS Cardiac is being designed to be operated quickly by minimally trained personnel, producing a simple to interpret result in emergency settings, even in the back of an ambulance.
Initial testing of the electronic and microfluidic components of the MIDS Cardiac “Hybrid Strip” system was completed in November 2017. The Hybrid Strip system used for development testing aims to replicate as closely as possible a fully integrated Lab on Chip MIDS test strip set-up. Development testing was conducted on both the assembled hybrid unit and its electronic and microfluidic components separately, focusing mainly on the electronics of the magnetic sensing system.
Testing revealed that a variety of brands and sizes of commercially available assay beads could be magnetically detected in very low quantities, including samples of beads that were previously undetectable. In several instances, the current “limit of detection” appeared to already be at or near to the range advised by MML’s assay consultants as suitable for a high sensitivity troponin assay.
Dr. Nasser Djennati, MML’s Managing Director and Chief Scientific Officer, said; “These results come in at the very high end of detection expectations, even at this Hybrid Strip stage. As we move forward into true Lab on Chip construction, I expect detection levels to improve further still.”
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the western world, accounting for more than 17 million deaths in Europe and the United States alone. Nearly 20 million patients each year visit an emergency room with reports of chest pain, with hundreds of millions spent on unnecessary admissions to the hospital. Zenosense Inc. is confident MIDS Cardiac will deliver unparalleled levels of accuracy, speed, reliability, ease of use and cost savings, making it the future device of choice for hospitals, emergency rooms, medical practitioners, paramedics and in low-resource settings.
The MIDS technology is also seen as having a far wider application, with the platform being capable of performing Point of Care immunoassay tests for a vast array of common healthcare concerns, a market projected to be worth $23.7 billion per year worldwide by 2019. The medical testing market as a whole is projected to be worth $53.34 billion by 2021. Zenosense believes the MIDS technology could be the most significant advance in diagnostic testing services in decades.
Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO), closed the day's trading session at $0.43, up 8.72%, on 544,756 volume with 161 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 254,501 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.15/$0.895.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCQB: PVOTF)
Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE: PVOT / OTCQB: PVOTF / FRA: NPAT) ("Pivot" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it will file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Clinical Trial Application (CTA) with Health Canada to begin human clinical trials of PVT-005, the Company's pharmaceutical drug candidate for the treatment of Female Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD).
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.
Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF), closed the day's trading session at $0.339, off by 0.29%, on 77,025 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 135,836 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.047/$2.46.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF)
CFN Media Group (“CFN Media”), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry, announces publication of an article covering Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE:CHOO) (CNSX:CHOO) (CHOO.CN) (OTCQB:CHOOF), formed with the sole intent of creating a recreational brand for Canada, and recent corporate developments including a strategic investment by Aurora Cannabis Inc.
Choom Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: CHOOF) (CSE: CHOO) channels the laid-back spirit of Hawaii to the Okanagan region of British Columbia with a generous nod to the inspirational, yet unofficial, history of the 1970s “Choom Gang,” a group of buddies in Honolulu (including former President Barack Obama) who knew how to relax with “choom,” the local’s term for marijuana. Choom’s trademark slogans pivot off another unconventional phrase (“Say Hello to…”), bringing a heady dose of good times and good friends together as the company invites investors to “Say Hello to Choom™” as it lights up the adult recreational cannabis market in Canada.
Choom™ has been an ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicant since November 2013 in Vernon, B.C. The company’s first application has received security clearance and is now in the detailed review stage. They also recently announced their second late-stage ACMPR application, which is in its confirmation of readiness stage. Cannabis Compliance Inc. has been retained to help expedite Choom’s initial license applications to ensure the company’s readiness for legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada mid-summer 2018.
True to the company’s character, Choom™ is retrofitting two large facilities – No. 1 in Vernon, B.C., and No. 2 on Vancouver Island – to house its cannabis growing facilities. Phase 1 of the Vernon property will provide Choom™ with 6,800 square feet of growing space, capable of producing 660 kg/year of cannabis at an estimated revenue of $6.6 million, excluding oils. The company expects this facility to be completed by July 2018, the same month that Canada is expected to formally legalize recreational marijuana for adult use. A potential Phase 2, to be completed by the end of 2018, would add another 6,800 square feet for a total of 1,500 kg/year capacity, which would nearly double No. 1’s revenue. A Level 9 vault is also planned with a storage capacity of 15,000 kg. While the No. 2 facility on Vancouver Island is smaller – 4,500 square feet – its retrofit is also slated to be completed by July 2018. Plans include doubling this space as well, which would add about $9 million in annual revenue, excluding cannabis oils.
Choom™ announced its retail dispensary strategy with the intention of establishing market leadership in reaching the Canadian cannabis consumer. The partner program is already in the retail space design stage as the company seeks to build a chain of branded retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where recreational cannabis is legal. Choom™ Stores will have a cool, modern layout and design created to emit an authentic “Aloha” vibe. Choom™ is all about producing high-grade cultivars and curating them for a bigger audience.
A savvy, experienced management team includes Chris Bogart, president and CEO; John Oh, R.P.I.C., Operations Manager; Robert Bayrack, Master Grower, S.P.I.C.; and Adrian Robinson, Strategic Advisor. Bogart has over two decades of international experience in capital markets and was a co-founder of InMed Pharmaceuticals and Magnum Uranium. He has structured complex equity financing transactions in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Bogart is joined on the Board of Directors by Kevin Pull, Stephen Tong and John Oh.
While the medical marijuana industry is expected to double by 2021 to 500,000 registered users, the true highlight of the recreational cannabis represents the key cultural shift set to launch in Canada. With an estimated $4.9B to $8.7B retail market coming, now is the right time for a Recreation Brand like Choom™ to be involved in this growing industry. Establishing and maintaining Choom™ premium brand loyalty is a key factor in the company’s growth strategy. Get ready to “Say Hello” to opportunity, good times and good friends with Choom™.
Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF), closed the day's trading session at $0.929, up 3.22%, on 786,743 volume with 545 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 544,210 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.18/$1.10.

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF)
American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF) is positioned to bridge the helium supply gap with its estimated 7.85 billion square feet of helium reserves in Utah. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/e8xT5.
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 $0.2604, off by 12.29%, on 13,730 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 17,145 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2583/$0.77.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the nominees listed in the management information circular dated May 25, 2018 were elected as directors of First Cobalt. Detailed results of the vote for the election of directors held at the annual and special shareholders meeting June 26, 2018 are set out below. meeting on June 26, 2018.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
