This past May, Saker Aviation Services announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Revenue and Net Loss in the three months ended March 31, 2017 of $2,041,261 and $152,119, respectively, were down 31.2 percent and $338,485, respectively, versus Revenue of $2,967,080 and Net Income of $186,366 in the three months ended March 31, 2016.
Mr. Ron Ricciardi, President of Saker Aviation Services, said, "The first quarter of 2017 was challenging, as anticipated. The final phase of air tour reductions, which occurred on January 1st and is now at the full 50 percent, was the primary driver of our results. The reductions are targeted against 2015 activity while Q1 2016 enjoyed full and unfettered activity, which negatively impacted the year-over-year comparisons. In fact, Q1 2016 tour activity exceeded 2015 by over 36 percent. Further burdening results was the Easter holiday, which occurred in Q1 in 2016 but in Q2 in 2017. Given that these are extraordinary factors, we anticipate that future quarters will not be influenced to the same extent as Q1, though the reductions will continue to challenge year-over-year comparisons."

Greystone Logistics, Inc. (GLGI)
Zacks, MarketWatch, and Trading View reported on Greystone Logistics, Inc. (GLGI), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Greystone Logistics, Inc. reprocesses and sells recycled plastic, and designs, manufactures, sells, and leases high-quality 100 percent recycled plastic pallets. These provide logistical solutions needed by a wide variety of industries. These industries include food and beverage, agricultural, automotive, chemical, and pharmaceutical and consumer products. Greystone Logistics is the largest 100 percent recycled plastic pallet manufacturer in the United States. A "Green" manufacturing and leasing enterprise, Greystone Logistics is headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The Company’s technology, including that utilized in its injection molding equipment, and its proprietary blend of recycled plastic resins and patented pallet designs, enables fast production of high-quality pallets and at lower costs than many processes. The recycled plastic for its pallets helps control material costs. This is while lessening environmental waste.
Greystone Logistics provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin. The excess plastic not used in the production of pallets undergoes reprocessing for resale. The Company’s products include rackable, nestable, display, monoblock, as well as stackable pallets. In addition, its products include picture frame web-top pallets and web-top pallets. Furthermore, the Company sells recycled plastic that undergoes reprocessing into pellet form. It also provides pallet leasing services.
Concerning obtaining or selling resin or excess plastic, Greystone Logistics buys HDPE scrap, pellets, purchings, dust, shavings, and parts. The Company sometimes sells some excess pelletized Santoprene, HDPE and comingled-baled scrap TPU and ABS car bumpers.
Greystone Logistics offers recycled pallets for sale including full picture frame and three skids models and IBC pallets. Plastic pallets last 10-50 times longer than wood; have residual (trade-in) value; are recyclable; have a high coefficient of friction with anti-skid design for top, bottom, and fork lift tine contact; have considerably lower life cycle costs (cost per trip), and are suited for closed loop systems. Plastic pallets have no exposed nails, wood chips, or broken boards on manufacturing or warehouse floors. This prevents fork lift issues.
This past April, Greystone Logistics reported that sales for the three months ended February 28, 2017 totaled $8,693,851 versus $5,280,480 for the prior period. This represents an increase of $3,413,371, or 65 percent.
Sales for the nine months ended February 28, 2017 were $25,759,823 versus $15,270,671 for the prior period. This represents an increase of $10,489,152, or 69 percent. The Company said in April that there continues to be a backlog of sales for a wide range of its products.
Greystone Logistics, Inc. (GLGI), closed Monday's trading session at $0.47, up 4.42%, on 22,999 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 26,790 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.336/$0.60.
Empire Petroleum Corp. (EMPR)
Nebula Stocks reported earlier on Empire Petroleum Corp. (EMPR), and we are highlighting the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Empire Petroleum Corp. involves in the exploration and development of oil and gas interests in North America. It owns interest in the Gabbs Valley prospect and interest in the South Okie prospect. The Gabbs Valley prospect is an area of about 34,186 gross acres in Nye and Mineral Counties, Nevada. The South Okie prospect encompasses 110 net acres of oil and gas leases in Natrona County, Wyoming.
The Company previously went by the name Americomm Resources Corp. It changed its corporate name to Empire Petroleum Corp. in August of 2001. The Company operates in the Independent Oil & Gas industry in the Basic Materials sector.
Formed in 1983, Empire Petroleum is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In February of this year, Empire Petroleum announced it was approved to upgrade its common shares from the Pink® Open Market to the OTCQB® Venture Market under the trading symbol “EMPR”, effective January 30, 2017.
Empire Petroleum has conducted wide-ranging geological studies, conducted a seismic survey, carried out a geochemical imaging survey, conducted satellite and gravity studies and drilled two test wells on the Gabbs Valley Prospect. The additional studies of such data and the assistance of geological and engineering consultants led the Company to conclude that more drilling was warranted. The determination was that a new test well should be drilled using a different method of drilling.
Empire Petroleum drilled the Paradise Unit 2-12 well to a depth of 4,250 feet before drilling problems caused them to halt drilling. The Company recovered small amounts of oil containing paraffin that may have been restricting the oil flow. Swab tests failed to increase the oil flow and Empire suspended operations on the well.
The Company assigned the lease and the 1-12 and 2-12 wells to the other leasehold owners from which Empire had taken a farmout. Empire Petroleum does feel the prospect has significant geological merit since the main target, being the Triassic formation, was not reached in either of the two test wells.
Empire Petroleum and Sierra Nevada Oil, LLC centered their activities on the exploration and development of around 36,750 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) leases situated on a surface anticline in Gabbs, Nevada. Three exploratory wells were drilled on the leases.
Empire Petroleum announced in December of last year, that it entered into an Agreement (Contribution Agreement) with Masterson West, LLC, regarding a newly-formed entity, Masterson West II, LLC (MWII). Upon closing, Empire Petroleum will own up to a maximum of 50 percent of MWII if it delivers $18,000,000 with a proportionate decrease down to 25 percent of Masterson West II at the lower end of the range. These oil and gas properties are in Moore and Potter Counties in the Texas Panhandle. The wells to be included in the transaction chiefly target the Red Cave formation.
Empire Petroleum Corp. (EMPR), closed Monday's trading session at $0.2999, up 19.96%, on 20,635 volume with 10 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 4,105 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.04/$0.30.

CurAegis Technologies, Inc. (CRGS)
InvestorsHub and OTC Markets reported on CurAegis Technologies, Inc. (CRGS), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
CurAegis Technologies, Inc. develops and markets advanced technologies in the areas of power, safety, and wellness. The Company consists of two independent divisions - its CURA Division and its Aegis Division. CurAegis is currently centering on commercialization strategies in different technologies. These include the CURA system, which includes the myCadian™ watch that measures degradation of alertness and sleep attributes; the Z-Coach e-learning education and training tool, and the Aegis hydraulic pump. CurAegis Technologies is based in Rochester, New York.
The CURA System comprises hardware and software that measures many metrics to establish that a person's ability to perform a task or job appears to be degrading. The CURA division is developing a proprietary technology and family of products designed to measure the decrease in a person’s alertness and to train persons on how to improve alertness levels. The CURA™ system and the myCadian™ watch enable the user and third parties to anticipate and prevent undesired or disastrous situations caused by the degradation of alertness.
CurAegis Technologies completed its validation studies of the CURA System at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Rochester Medical Center. The Company earlier said that it can now state that it can predict a person’s fatigue level, at close to laboratory accuracy, in real-time.
The Z-Coach e-learning tool was acquired by CurAegis Technologies in September of 2015. The first of six Z-Coach e-learning modules, Z-Coach Aviation, was designed for aviation professionals.
Additionally, the Company’s Aegis hydraulic pump (Aegis Division) is an innovative hydraulic design. Its goal is to deliver better efficiencies in a package that is smaller and lighter than contemporary technologies.
Regarding the Aegis Division’s Aegis Pump and Motor, it has eliminated the rotating piston group (the cylinders are stationary). This makes the pump very robust and easy to manufacture. The Company’s patented valving has been integrated to increase efficiencies at peak and off peak operation.
Concerning the CURA System, CurAegis Technologies is on schedule to have its system set for shipments in Q3. Moreover, concerning Aegis Pumps and Motor, the new motor is in development and the Company’s prototype is scheduled to be available this month.

PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB)
OTCJournal, PennyStockLaboratory, SmallCapNetwork, Cannabis Financial Network News, BUYINS.NET, MyBestStockAlerts, InvestorPlace, Goldman Small Cap Research, Damn Good Penny Picks, Penny Picks, Darth Trader, Wall Street Corner, Penny Stock General, PennyStockInformer, Fast Money Alerts, Penny Stock Beats, Stock Shock and Awe, The Stock Psycho, and Stock Market Media Group reported earlier on PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. focuses 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 utilized 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, PharmaCyte Biotech has its corporate headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The OTCQB-listed 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” roughly the size of the head of a pin. It encapsulates living cells, not drugs.
Each capsule can enclose about 10,000 cells. This number can differ depending upon the size of the cells encapsulated. PharmaCyte Biotech is advancing its new treatment for pancreatic cancer into the clinic in the United States, with study sites in Europe and Australia.
Additionally, the Company is developing treatments for cancer based upon chemical constituents of the Cannabis plant, named cannabinoids. It 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.
In June, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that it successfully completed the comprehensive characterization of its proprietary cell clone known as 22P1G.
The 22P1G cells constitute the cells in the Master Cell Bank (MCB), which were prepared and tested by the Company’s contractor, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories.
The cells from the MCB will serve as the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in PharmaCyte’s Cell-in-a Box® capsules, which will be used (together with low doses of the cancer prodrug ifosfamide) for the treatment of locally advanced, non-metastatic, inoperable pancreatic cancer (LAPC) in the Company’s planned clinical trial.
Last week, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that it successfully completed a study on the stability after “hand thawing” syringes of the Cell-in-a-Box® encapsulated cells. The data obtained from this “hand thawing” study is compulsory by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The results of the “hand thawing” study announced show that the viability of the cells remains essentially the same for a minimum of 30 minutes at room temperature. This serves to define the time that the interventional radiologist has to implant the Cell-in-a-Box® capsules after thawing to ensure cellular viability within the patient.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0596, down 5.40%, on 2,554,210 volume with 118 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 3,258,540 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0302/$0.105.

This trial is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile, safety, and efficacy of multiple doses of CBD for the prevention of GvHD following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). The proposed study will take place at the Rabin Medical Center, Beilinson, and the Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, in Israel.
GvHD is a multisystem disorder. It is a common, life-threatening complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT) procedures. GvHD occurs when the transplanted donor cells attack the patient’s organs. This includes the skin, gastrointestinal tract, liver, lungs, as well as eyes.
Kalytera Therapeutics’ continuing Phase 2b clinical study evaluating the use of CBD in the prevention of GVHD is expected to be completed early 2019. The Company has enrolled patients at clinical sites in Israel. To speed up the enrollment process the Company is in the process of expanding the study to include two additional sites in Australia. Upon completion of the Phase 2b clinical study, Kalytera will commence preparations for the pivotal Phase 3 clinical study that will be required for FDA approval.
Earlier this month, Kalytera Therapeutics announced it will meet with the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) of the FDA on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. The meeting is to discuss manifold aspects of the Company’s planned registration study evaluating cannabidiol (CBD) for the treatment of acute graft versus host disease (GVHD).
Additionally, this month, Kalytera announced that it entered into an agreement with Beetlebung Pharma, Ltd. (BPL) for an option to acquire all rights to medical cannabis products in development by BPL for the treatment of dermatologic diseases and women's health.
With this agreement, Kalytera will have the option to license from BPL certain proprietary medical cannabis formulations that can initially be brought to market in jurisdictions that have already approved access to cannabis for medical purposes. Kalytera Therapeutics’ belief is that this will provide a more near-term path to revenues, versus the lengthier process required for commercialization following FDA approval.

ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF)
Globally licensed cannabis company ABcann Global Corp. (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) this morning announced the introduction of FIRESIDE, its first recreational cannabis brand. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/5EDrz.
ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), ABcann has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.
“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” ABcann Global CEO Barry Fishman said.
ABcann Global owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.
ABcann has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique, which the company calls the ABcann Advantage, has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with ABcann’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.
This global growth potential is illustrated by ABcann’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting ABcann’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.
ABcann’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with ABcann’s philosophy of quality and innovation.
ABcann’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.
Notably, ABcann also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.
With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, ABcann is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.
ABcann Global (ABCCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.901, up 6.25%, on 246,051 volume with 195 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 215,539 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.65/$3.2929.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG)
Cannabis-focused financial services company Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) recently partnered with Paper Lantern, LLC to create the nation’s largest mobile hemp CBD processing service. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/aLjV0.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.
Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.
StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.
“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.042, up 6.87%, on 157,396 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 535,509 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING)
SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) was a featured company on this week’s episode of MoneyTV with Donald Baillargeon. MoneyTV is an internationally syndicated television program discussing “money and what makes it happen.” To view the full interview, visit: http://ccw.fm/nL1qm. To view the full press release, visit: http://ccw.fm/24Gp6.
SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
- Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
- Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
- Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.
SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

Sunniva, Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF)
NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how vertically integrated cannabis company Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) has announced an agreement to produce top-quality cannabis extracts for Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) (http://nnw.fm/59hlR).
Sunniva, Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) is a vertically integrated medical cannabis company operating in the world’s two largest cannabis markets – Canada and California – committed to delivering safe, consistent, high-quality products and services. Sunniva operates through its wholly owned subsidiaries: Sunniva Medical Inc., CP Logistics, LLC, Natural Health Service Ltd., and Full-Scale Distributors, LLC. Sunniva’s vision is to become the lowest cost, highest quality cannabis producer in the markets it serves by building large scale purpose-built cGMP-compliant greenhouses, offering best quality assurance with cannabis products free from pesticides, providing better patient and doctor access to cannabis education, and sourcing better therapeutic delivery devices.
The company is establishing sophisticated distribution channels, including Sunniva’s ownership of Natural Health Services cannabis clinics in Canada with over 95,000 active patients, to purchase the significant quantities of high quality Sunniva-branded and Sunniva private-labeled cannabis products.
Sunniva is an ancient English name which means, “Gift of the Sun.” Sunniva’s team of horticulturists, scientists and engineers is helping to set best practices for the industry, believing that sun-grown, solar-powered cultivation is the most sustainable and cost-effective way to grow high-quality, premium cannabis.
The Sunniva Family includes:
CP Logistics, LLC
Through its subsidiary, CP Logistics LLC, Sunniva is developing Sunniva Campus, a state-of-the-art, purpose-built greenhouse facility in Cathedral City, California. This modern purpose-built, agri-technology greenhouse will adhere to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations that assure proper design, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.
Phase 1 of the project includes a fully funded 325,000 square foot greenhouse capable of producing 60,000 kg per year of dry cannabis at capacity with operations commencing Q3 2018. Approximately 30 percent of initial total production will be converted into oils and extracts. Phase 2 is expected to increase the greenhouse by 165,000 square feet and grow production by about 40,000 kg per year.
These uniquely sealed greenhouses are designed to deploy custom, automation assembly line cultivation processes at a large scale. Energy consumption will be reduced while utilizing the energy of the sun and microclimatic controls to provide precise growing conditions. The greenhouse will recirculate air for more efficient climate control, and the company’s Integrated Pest Management System is designed to ensure every plant grown is certified clean and free of all contaminants and pesticides.
Sunniva Medical Inc.

This facility will produce pesticide-free products and will convert trim to extracted products such as cannabis oil that can be used for drug delivery formats such as capsules, dissolvable strips, vaporization cartridges, tinctures and creams.
Sunniva and Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth”) recently announced a large take or pay supply agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Canopy Growth will purchase up to 45,000 kilograms of dried cannabis annually commencing Q1 2019, which includes the distribution of Sunniva branded products.

The development of this architecture will serve as an online commercial portal to service Pacific Software’s B2B accounts in the sectors below.
For application of its Agri-blockchain based system, Pacific Software will target farm-to-consumer exports to increase transparency, combat theft and counterfeit products, and reduce the health risks associated with shipping “tainted” agricultural products to other countries.
Perceiving blockchain as an ideal mechanism for the complexities of the cannabis industry, Pacific Software will strive to improve the transparency, compliance, and efficiency of the “seed-to-sale” supply chain in states where the plant is legal.
With the misuse of opioids on the rise worldwide, Pacific Software aims to apply its blockchain-based system to track opioids from pharmaceutical production to consumers and attempt to identify “Bad Actors” in the supply chain and fight against the global epidemic.
The portal will be structured in a B2B format where clients will pay the company transaction fees, royalties, cash, cash equivalents and other forms of compensation to utilize its Hyperledger blockchain applications for their business models.
As the company executes these strategies, each Hyperledger blockchain-based system designed may be organized separately in wholly owned subsidiaries. To enhance its portfolio of holdings, Pacific Software may consider investments in companies where selected markets have imminent profitable results, providing appreciable value for investors and shareholders.
Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF), closed the day's trading session at $4.00, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 47 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $4.00/$4.00.

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) CEO Warren Wang said in a recent SmallCapVoice interview that he expects to expand CIIX’s previously announced ATM network to eventually include the Canadian cities of Vancouver and Toronto. Focusing on international growth, he also announced that the company will offer its Bitcoin Trading Academy online courses in Asia to reach a larger audience (http://ccw.fm/uP8aJ).
Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.
Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)
Fully integrated oil and gas company Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is boosting its footprint within the Utah Oil Sands Region where the company’s Asphalt Ridge facility is located, CEO David Sealock stated in a recent news release (http://nnw.fm/0oRbZ). The company has signed a letter of intent to pursue additional acreage and resources within the state from Mareton Alliance LP, meeting a key initiative that Petroteq has been pursuing this year.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil and gas exploration and production on mineral leases it owns in Texas with Accord GR Energy Inc. and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ, the Company’s collaboration formed with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC: BITCF). PetroBLOQ’s novel blockchain-based oil and gas supply chain management platform is currently being co-developed by the two companies.
PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.
“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy CEO Alex Blyumkin.
In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry. “API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.
Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.
The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 3,000-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Liquid Extraction System.
The company’s Texas location includes an ownership interest (46%) in 7,000 acres under mineral leases with Accord, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company that focuses on the development and recovery of heavy oil reserves and deposits. Two enhanced, licensed oil recovery technologies designed to increase oil recovery from more than 80 shallow oil wells on the property are expected to substantially improve the recovery rates of heavy oil deposits in this area. In both the Utah oil sands and traditional oil patch Texas project, the Company, its subsidiaries and Accord are using proprietary technologies, processes and methodologies to recover heavy oil, providing a distinct, strategic economic advantage for Petroteq Energy and its shareholders.
The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.
The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed the day's trading session at $0.87, off by 2.24%, on 439,690 volume with 294 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 218,103 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.28/$1.8892.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC) is reaping rewarding reports from its exploration to extend a historic resource in Idaho’s prolific Cobalt Belt. The project is an example of industry efforts to establish North American sources of the metal so vital to high-tech batteries and other modern tech applications, and First Cobalt’s portfolio indicates its potential in leading the effort. Having stable North America-based operations and sources could help avoid unpredictable future problems, such as Panasonic’s recent sudden cut off of a cobalt supplier due its relationship with Cuba.
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.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2728, off by 2.57%, on 337,829 volume with 114 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 220,472 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.242/$1.3041.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS)
NetworkNewsWire released a report on Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) detailing how, 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. Also today, NetworkNewsWire discussed the production supply agreement announced with vertically integrated cannabis company Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF).

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.

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.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H)
Now that some 44 nations around the globe have passed laws allowing marijuana for medical use, the market is set for rapid expansion in the coming years. Industry analysts Grand View Research estimate that the global medical marijuana market will reach a value of $55.8 billion by 2025, as the range of therapies for cannabis multiplies (http://cnw.fm/8dEr3). Much of this expected demand will be driven by treatments for chronic pain, but applications are also likely to be developed for a number of other ailments, such as anxiety, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), that appear to benefit from cannabis prescription. As a result of these developments, PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) has launched a medicinal cannabis division that will also advance the company’s vision of becoming a global preventive health care company.
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.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (PRVCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.028, off by 11.95%, on 931,535 volume with 95 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 555,393 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.002/$0.20.
