(ZZZOF), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Zinc One Resources, Inc. concentrates on the acquisition, exploration and development of prospective and advanced zinc projects in mining-friendly jurisdictions. Its key assets are the past producing Bongará Zinc Mine Project and the Charlotte-Bongará Zinc Project in Peru. The Company formerly went by the name Rockridge Capital Corp. It changed its corporate name to Zinc One Resources, Inc. in January 2017. Zinc One Resources is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Company acquired Forrester Metals, Inc. in June of 2017. As a result, it acquired the Bongará Mine and Charlotte-Bongará Projects. Both host high-grade, nonsulphide zinc mineralization at or near the surface. At the Bongará Zinc Mine the mineralization is concentrated along and proximal to a NW – trending anticlinal axis over approximately 2.5 kilometers.

The Bongará Zinc Mine was mined in 2007 and 2008 by a previous owner by open-pit methods, dried at the site, and then shipped 540 kilometers westward to the coast where it was processed via a Waelz kiln. This is a processing technology usually applied to flue dust from steel mills to recover zinc. In August 2008, the mine was closed down mainly due to a drop in the price of zinc at that time.

The exploration upside at Charlotte-Bongará includes greater than 8,000 meters of drilling. This includes results of 29.5% Zn across 15.5 meters, 26.1% Zn across 12.5 meters, and 29.7% Zn across 11.5 meters.

Last month, Zinc One Resources announced the first National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) Mineral Resource estimate for its Bongará Zinc Mine project in north-central Peru. Watts Griffis and McOuat Limited (WGM) prepared the estimate for the Company. A supporting NI 43-101 technical report will be available under Zinc One Resources’ profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.zincone.com within 45 days of this release (dated February 5, 2019).

Yesterday, Zinc One Resources announced the results of voting at the Company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) of shareholders that took place on March 13, 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Shareholders at the AGM approved all matters. This included the appointment of the four incumbent directors - Dr. William C. Williams, Mr. Barry Girling, Mr. Greg Crowe, and Mr. Gunther Roehlig, for the following year, the re-appointment of Charlton & Co. LLP as auditors of Zinc One Resources, and the renewal of the Company's 10 percent rolling stock option plan.

HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (INTI)

Simply Wall St, 4-Traders, Infront Analytics, Morningstar, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, BUYINS.NET, Stockhouse, Dividend Investor, and Wallet Investor reported earlier on HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (INTI), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company headquartered in Tampa, Florida. It discovers, develops, and plans to commercialize front-line therapeutics for patients with cancer. The Company is looking to repurpose the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved antifungal pharmaceutical itraconazole as a potential treatment for cancer. HedgePath Pharmaceuticals lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

HedgePath is the exclusive United States licensee of a patented formulation of itraconazole, called SUBA-Itraconazole. Clinical studies have shown it to have more bioavailability than generic itraconazole. The Hedgehog signaling pathway is a significant regulator of cellular processes in vertebrates. This includes cell differentiation, tissue polarity, as well as cell proliferation.

The Company believes (based on published research) that inhibiting the Hedgehog pathway could delay or possibly prevent the development of certain cancers in humans. Leveraging research undertaken by key investigators in the field, HedgePath’s plan is to explore the effectiveness of SUBA-Itraconazole as an anti-cancer agent and to pursue its potential commercialization.

The design of “SUBA technology” (which stands for “Super Bioavailability”) is to improve the bioavailability of orally administered drugs that are poorly soluble. SUBA-Itraconazole is a patented formulation developed by Mayne Pharma. It has improved absorption and substantially reduced variability in comparison to generic itraconazole.

In August of 2018, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed HedgePath’s present clinical and regulatory pathway related to the Company’s SUBA™-Itraconazole as a treatment for Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) in patients with Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome (BCCNS, or Gorlin Syndrome).

This past December, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals announce that it entered into a revised Supply and License Agreement (SLA) with its majority stockholder Mayne Pharma Ventures Pty Ltd (Mayne Pharma), an affiliate of Mayne Pharma Group Limited. With the new SLA, Mayne Pharma will assume control of the regulatory and clinical development program for SUBA®-Itraconazole for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome (SUBA-Itraconazole BCCNS) in expectation of conducting a worldwide Phase 3 pivotal clinical trial based on results attained in the Phase 2(b) trial conducted by HedgePath in the United States. Mayne Pharma will immediately assume responsibility for all future SUBA-Itraconazole BCCNS-related expenses.

HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (INTI), closed Monday's trading session at $0.064, up 1.5873%, on 30,000 volume with 4 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 3,199 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.040150001/$0.319999992.

This past November, FieldPoint Petroleum announced financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2018. Mr. Phillip Roberson, President and Chief Financial Officer, said, "Revenues were down year over year due primarily to the sale of our Apache Bromide production, which occurred in 2017. The Apache Bromide was a high operating cost asset that did not contribute significantly to the bottom line. We did not have a similar sale in 2018, although we are considering that possibility in the future. I am pleased to announce that we have been able to extend our forbearance agreement with Citibank until March 31, 2019, giving us some latitude to evaluate and consider merger, acquisition, and financing opportunities that have been difficult to pursue under a shorter forbearance period."

Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. (LEXG)

MicroCap Daily, Insider Financial, Penny Stock Tweets, Epic Stock Picks, OTC Markets, and The Wolf of Penny Stocks reported on Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. (LEXG), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. concentrates on the acquisition and development potential of lithium brines and other precious metals that demonstrate high probability for near-term production. The Company is currently focusing on sales and distribution of the Sonic Cavitation Ltd. technology and the acquisition of oil and gas related assets in the U.S. and Canada. An exploration and development company, Lithium Exploration is based in Phoenix, Arizona.

Lithium Exploration’s commitment is to developing assets and technologies in Oil & Gas, and Waste Treatment. The Company is developing an ultrasonic generator for different field applications in the oil and gas industry. The technology provides lower cost, low energy solutions to many pre-existing processes within these markets.

Lithium Exploration’s Oil & Gas assets consist of the White Top Field. This asset is positioned onshore in Southwest Louisiana. The cumulative production to-date is 32 million barrels. Current production is 120 barrels of oil per day.

The Company has partnered with Sonic Cavitation (SonCav) to develop SonCav's patented technology for the treatment of hydrocarbon fluid stocks and waste water. The SonCav generator is skid mounted for easy mobility to even the most remote field locations. At present, SonCav is field ready for customers across North America. SonCav runs off of 3 phase electricity. It produces no on-site emissions.

Lithium Exploration announced this past March that its partners in the White Top project were making major progress on the preparations to close on the eventual acquisition of the field and development strategy. The seismic data has been totally processed.

Lithium Exploration stated that it continues to impress all parties that have looked at it. The Company has a royalty interest in the future development of the major oil and gas opportunity in Louisiana.

Lithium Exploration’s Blockchain efforts in the oil and gas industry are moving forward. The Company has been incubating a Blockchain concept, which will make it much easier and more transparent for investors who are not part of the oil and gas ecosystem to participate in investment opportunities.

Nonetheless, the Company is not spending any money on those efforts until after the completion of the royalty acquisition. Lithium Exploration is looking to partner with a couple of external companies to establish the Blockchain marketplace that it will manage.

This month, Lithium Exploration announced that preparation and permitting was initiated at its oil project in SW Louisiana. The expectation is that the pad undergoing preparation will host the drilling of the first three target locations.

A joint team of internal and external geophysicists have prepared the locations. This team has identified these locations in a specific fault block, using the processed seismic data collected last year versus historical production from the field, and determined that these locations will be the most productive. The team has put a projection of 800K to 1.4M barrels of oil from this fault block that can be simultaneously extracted by drilling three wells at different depths.

Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. (LEXG), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0059, up 31.1111%, on 26,501 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 79,031 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.003/$0.018899999.

Streetwise Reports, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, OTC Markets, Stockhouse, and Investing News reported on Anfield Energy, Inc. (ANLDF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Anfield Energy, Inc. engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of mineral properties in the United States. The Company is a uranium development and near-term production enterprise. Anfield is concentrating on two production centers - the Irigary ISR (in-situ recovery) processing plant in Wyoming and the Shootaring Canyon Mill in Arizona/Utah. Anfield Energy is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Company’s commitment is to becoming a top-tier energy-related fuels supplier through creating value via sustainable, efficient growth in its energy metals assets. Its uranium assets comprise conventional mining claims and State leases in southeastern Utah, Colorado, and Arizona. Anfield’s conventional uranium assets include the Velvet-Wood Project, the Frank M Uranium Project, and the Findlay Tank breccia pipe.

The Company’s key asset is the Shootaring Canyon Mill in Garfield County, Utah. The Shootaring Canyon Mill is strategically located within one of the historically most prolific uranium production areas in the United States. Furthermore, it is one of only three licensed uranium mills in the United States. In 2017, Anfield Energy continued advancing the Shootaring Canyon Uranium Mill license towards operational status with the Utah Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control.

Concerning the Irigaray ISR Processing Plant (Resin Processing Agreement), the Company’s ISR mining projects are in the Black Hills, Powder River Basin, Great Divide Basin, and Laramie Basin, Shirley Basin, and Wind River Basin regions in Wyoming. These consist of 2,667 federal mining claims, 56 Wyoming State leases, and 15 private leases acquired from Uranium One in September 2016.

Anfield Energy’s Clarkson Hill project consists of roughly 500 acres of the mineral holdings of the Company. The Clarkson Hill project includes 25 unpatented mining lode claims situated about 20 air miles southwest of Casper, Wyoming.

Anfield will evaluate the feasibility of adding a vanadium processing facility to its Shootaring Canyon uranium mill. This reflects its intention to capitalize on potential opportunities as vanadium continues to become an even-more relevant commodity in the energy sector.

Anfield Energy announced in December of 2017 a conceptual vanadium exploration target at its Velvet-Wood Mine in Utah. BRS Engineering completed an Exploration Target report, entitled "Velvet-Wood Vanadium Exploration Target, National Instrument 43-101, Utah, U.S.A.", with effective date of December 11, 2017 that provides a vanadium exploration target of between 6.3Mlbs and 9.7Mlbs at a grade of between 0.4 percent V2O5 and 0.61 percent V2O5.

Anfield engaged BRS Engineering to update the Company’s NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) related to the Velvet-Wood Mine to include a vanadium milling circuit as part of a production scenario.

This past April, Anfield Energy announced the acquisition of an extensive exploration database of mining projects centered chiefly on uranium and vanadium properties in the Western U.S. The new database, together with the Company’s already considerable uranium database, constitutes one of the largest depositories of uranium exploration data in the Western U.S.

Also in April, Anfield Energy announced that it identified vanadium exploration targets in its recently-acquired exploration database of mining projects in the Western U.S. The targets are in Colorado and Utah. They are considered complementary to the Company’s Utah-based Shootaring Canyon mill as Anfield Energy could include a vanadium processing circuit on this asset. Additionally, these vanadium projects could serve as a potential extended vanadium project pipeline beyond the Velvet-Wood uranium/vanadium project.

Anfield Energy, Inc. (ANLDF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.1109, up 22.1366%, on 7,898 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 21,941 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.090800002/$0.344300001.

Natcore Technology, Inc. (NTCXF)

Stockhouse, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, OTC Markets, Business Insider, and StreetInsider reported on Natcore Technology, Inc. (NTCXF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Natcore Technology, Inc. concentrates on using its proprietary Foil Cell technology to considerably lower the costs and improve the power output of solar cells. The Company is creating the next generation of solar cells. Natcore is developing two main technologies. These are low-cost, all-back-contact solar cell structures, and Black Silicon cells.

A solar R&D company, Natcore Technology is headquartered in Rochester, New York. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

The Company’s Foil Cell (All Back Contact Solar Cell) uses a high-speed, low temperature laser process. Natcore’s Black Silicon technology streamlines the path to low solar cell reflectance.

Natcore Technology has its Natcore Laboratory in Rochester. This is a 19,000 sq. ft. facility. It has 8,000 sq. ft. of ‘class 10,000’ clean room. The Company engages in the full solar cell process at this laboratory - from bare silicon wafer to working cells.

Regarding the Company’s Foil Cell Structure, the process involves multilayer foil metallization. Key features/properties include low cost contact metals and simplified manufacture. This includes low capital equipment cost, small factory footprint, and low temperature processing.

Natcore Technology has established exclusive licenses and/or joint research agreements with Rice University, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Fraunhofer ISE and the University of Virginia. The Company has received 33 patents; 32 patents are pending.

Yesterday, Natcore Technology announced it significantly streamlined the fabrication method for its pioneering Natcore Foil Cell™. This allows for even lower-cost production methods.

The Company is targeting greater than 25 percent real-world efficiency for its eventual production solar cells. This is approximately a 25 percent performance improvement over numerous high-end commercial cells being installed today.

The use of laser processing to create the Company’s unique, all-back-contact cell structure has been eliminated and replaced by a carrier selective contact process. This is combined with a foil metallization, which can be inexpensively made with high-speed roll-processing methods. Natcore has started an accelerated development program to produce a prototype with the new process, and also include production cost and efficiency modeling by independent authorities.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC).

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.

Advanced Extraction Technologies

For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:

  • LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
  • PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
  • Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.

Delta Purification® Technology

HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:

  • Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
  • Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
  • Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.

Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts

HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.

Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.

re3™ Technology

Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.

The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.

Sales and Offtake Agreements

HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.

Project Construction

HTC has focused the Canadian implementation of its BOOM (build, own, operate and maintain) extraction tolling strategy on a location near Regina, Saskatchewan. HTC is currently constructing a 19,000-square-foot GMP Euro compliant extraction tolling facility on six acres of land that will include biomass processing, extraction, implementation of DeltaSolv™ technologies and Delta Purification® systems, distillate and refining equipment, laboratory quality control and testing operations, and on-site office and admin facilities.

Leadership

Chairman, CEO and Director Lionel Kambeitz is a recognized professional in business development and international business relations. He has played a founding role in many other Canadian and U.S.-based companies. Kambeitz has executive experience in a variety of industries including energy, agriculture, food production engineering, and manufacturing.

Jeff Allison, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Director, has over 20 years of experience in corporate finance and business development. Prior to joining HTC in 2005, Allison as Vice President assisted with the founding and setup of CUCORP Financial Services in Saskatchewan.

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.

The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.

Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”

Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.

The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.

Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.

This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.

The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed Monday's trading session at $2.65, even for the day, on 2,460 volume with 12 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,725 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.25/$4.0999999.

Trxade Group Inc. (TRXD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Trxade Group Inc. (TRXD).

As independent pharmacy businesses struggle to overcome various challenges, the U.S. is facing a growing problem with the so-called ‘pharmacy deserts’ phenomenon, which results in entire areas left without pharmacy services. One of the main reasons that so many smaller, independent industry players close down shop is that they cannot successfully compete against large pharmaceutical chains. Companies like Trxade Group Inc. (OTCQB: TRXD) are working to reverse the trend.

Trxade Group Inc. (TRXD) is an integrated pharmaceutical services company that offers a unique combination of a web-based purchasing platform (www.trxade.com) for transactions between independent pharmacists and drug distributors (B2B); a network of pharmacies with E-Hub software; a mail order pharmacy; and warehouse and drug delivery services. This synergistic combination of product offerings and superior data analytics is poised to benefit all stakeholders and consumers within the pharmaceutical industry.

Trxade will leverage and scale its fully integrated model to execute the following growth strategies:

  • Increase share of pharmacist drug purchasing
  • Additional SKUs and expand product breath
  • Partner with Specialty and International Mfg.
  • Expand mail order licenses to all 50 states
  • Scale Delivmeds for consumer delivery nationwide
  • Integration with telemedicine
  • M&A Opportunities within drug value chain

Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Trxade's overarching corporate strategy is to penetrate the existing retail independent pharmacy marketplace and diversify the company's pharmaceutical mix with additional specialty and acute care products. Trxade is advancing on this mission by focusing on three key niches in the health care market.

Business-to-Business (B2B)

The $330 billion U.S. pharmaceutical industry is comprised of more than 65,000 pharmacy facilities and 1,500 state-licensed suppliers. Roughly 24,000 of these facilities are independent pharmacies, which collectively spend approximately $93 billion a year on branded and generic drugs.

Trxade targets these independent pharmacies, leveraging a robust, "E-Bay/Kayak-like" technology platform with optimum buyer/seller pricing algorithms, product availability, and predictive data analytics features.

Trxade currently serves and transacts with more than one-third (10,250) of these independent pharmacies and facilitates over $10 million of drug purchases a month!

Consumer

Trxade also targets the "consumer side" of the pharmaceutical industry, aiming to lower prescription drug costs by attacking the inefficient value chain; offering drug price transparency and efficient buying; and, delivering drugs DIRECT to independent pharmacists and consumers.

The company operates a full-service mail order pharmacy for U.S. consumers, as well as a mobile app called "Delivmeds" (http://www.delivmeds.com) which enables SAME DAY home delivery of dispensed prescriptions.

Retail

Trxade's Managed Services Organization ("TrxadeMSO") enables its member independent retail pharmacies to get patients, process orders, and deliver or ship prescriptions to patients. TrxadeMSO provides access to encompassing network of pharmacies through the E-Hub software, allowing for timely and comprehensive medication fulfillment.

These offerings ensure the best-suited pharmacy receives the patient's information, thereby ensuring appropriate medication coverage based on the patient's location, payor coverage, and medication access/inventory. This will save the clinicians and their staff time as they benefit from efficiency and enhanced workflow management in script processing and fulfillment.

Health Care Market

The U.S. health care market currently hovers near $4 trillion and is expected to grow as the general population ages. This growth will have greater impact on consumers as out-of-pocket expenses also rise. Additionally, drug costs are paced to increase faster than the overall health care and well above inflation.

Drug pricing is variable, and reimbursement is squeezing profits. This provides significant opportunity for the Trxade model of price visibility and profit optimization.

Trxade's fair online market platform targets the nation's retail community and independent pharmacies, of which there are approximately 24,000 nationwide. TRxADE has found that independent pharmacies, in order to be cost-effective, often operate with minimal staff and conduct up-to-the minute price checks. The TRxADE S2P platform gives these pharmacists the ability to easily compare the price of drugs offered by various suppliers and select the most favorable deals, saving money by taking advantage of best purchase pricing.

TRxADE's programs include:

  • TRxADE Exchange, which opens and widens the distribution channel to the retail, community pharmacy. A purchasing pharmacy can view products from manufacturers, buying groups, and wholesalers on a real-time and continuous basis. This approach significantly enhances the competitive spirit of the exchange where the lowest price exists for each product at any given point in time. TRxADE has become a competitive tool for all progressive entities and is recognized for its easy searching of hard-to-find generic pharmaceuticals at substantially reduced prices.
  • RX Guru™ is an industry-leading price prediction model that integrates product shortage insight into pharmacy acquisition benchmarks ("PAC") to ascertain trends and pricing variances that result in significant purchasing opportunities. RX Guru affords members the opportunity to continuously benefit from real price purchasing opportunities that are concealed from the rest of the industry.
  • Product Shortage Database – TRxADE maintains the most comprehensive retail, specialty and acute care pharmaceutical product shortage database in the country. Other industry competitors mainly restrict their efforts to specialty and acute care product shortages and narrowly research oral generic products. TRxADE's advanced prediction tools help members source those hard-to-find products at affordable costs in a timely and easy-to-search process.

Management Team

Trxade's management team is rich in expertise within the pharmaceutical supply chain and is supported by a base of advisors and contractors who are experts in related fields of the pharmaceutical sector.

Suren Ajjarapu – Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and Secretary

Suren Ajjarapu has served as Trxade's chairman of the board, CEO and secretary since 2014, and as the chairman of the board, chief executive officer and secretary of Trxade Nevada since its inception.

To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/nAbW2. To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/0DwFn.

(SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential. Sugarmade’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife. Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.

Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.

Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.

Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.

Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.

Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.

Sugarmade division CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30-40 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.

Management

CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.

The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.

The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.

The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.

Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program.
