Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO)

Penny Stock Tweets, Zacks, The OTC Reporter, Finance Registrar, MarketWatch, GuruFocus, Stock Beast, SmallCap Network, Stockhouse, and Promotion Stock Secrets reported earlier on Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Vitality Biopharma, Inc.’s dedication is to the development of cannabinoid prodrug pharmaceuticals, and to unlocking the power of cannabinoids for the treatment of serious neurological and inflammatory disorders. Since 2012, the Company has developed a unique capability to produce molecules via glycosylation. This is a form of enzymatic biosynthesis, which was originally developed to improve the taste of stevia. The platform is well suited for the discovery of new pharmaceutical products. OTCQB-listed, Vitality Biopharma has its headquarters in Los Angeles, California.

Late in 2015, Vitality successfully modified cannabidiol (CBD), which is not psychoactive. In continuing work, the Company has created a novel class of pharmaceuticals called cannabosides. Cannabosides, upon ingestion, can enable the selective delivery of THC and cannabidiol (CBD) to the gastrointestinal tract.

Vitality Biopharma can biosynthesize cannabinoid glycosides (cannabosides) via enzyme biosynthesis. The Company is one of only a very few groups in the world who know how to produce and work with the enzymes that perform glycosylation. It has been focused on it because the same enzymes are used to modify the taste of stevia (steviol glycosides).

Vitality Biopharma has developed a proprietary biosynthesis technology that can modify cannabinoids to create pharmaceutical prodrugs that have no psychoactivity and that can provide targeted disease treatment. The process involves small molecule glycosylation, where sugar molecules are attached to cannabinoids, creating new compounds called cannabinoid glycosides, or cannabosides.

The Company has introduced its lead cannabinoid drug formulation VITA-100 as a non-psychoactive prodrug of THC. Vitality is centering initial clinical development efforts on VITA-100, a proprietary THC cannabinoid drug formulation. The treatment indications it plans to evaluate in Phase 2 trials include inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome, and narcotic bowel syndrome (a severe form of opiate-induced abdominal pain).

Vitality Biopharma announced in April 2018 the pending establishment of a wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, Vitality Genetics, Ltd. This subsidiary will focus on and enable the performance of a wide assortment of cannabinoid genetics research and development (R&D) programs.

Vitality Biopharma announced in May the discovery of new antimicrobial activity of cannabinoids and its application for treatment of C. difficile-associated diarrhea and colitis. In experiments executed according to guidance by the Clinical Laboratory and Standards Institute (CLSI), Vitality determined that cannabinoids (including THC) are effective antibiotics for C. diff, VRE, and a variety of additional pathogens.

Last month, Vitality Biopharma announced that during a recent in vitro safety pharmacological screening study, its lead drug candidate VBX-100 demonstrated no signs of adverse pharmacological effects. This affirms its potential for extensive clinical use as a GI-targeted prodrug of THC. Vitality Biopharma has filed for intellectual property (IP) protection on greater than 100 different glycoside prodrugs. This includes VBX-100.

Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO), closed Monday's trading session at $1.99, even for the day, on 146,989 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 195,349 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.049/$2.369.

(PPCB), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Propanc Biopharma, Inc. is a clinical stage Biopharmaceutical Company headquartered in Australia. It concentrates on the development of new and proprietary treatments for cancer patients suffering from solid tumors such as pancreatic, ovarian, and colorectal cancers. The Company has developed a formulation of anti-cancer compounds, which exert manifold effects designed to control or prevent tumors from recurring and spreading throughout the body. Propanc Biopharma lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Propanc is developing a long-term therapy based on a pancreatic proenzyme formulation to prevent tumour recurrence and metastasis. The Company’s lead product is PRP. This is a novel, patented, formulation comprising two proenzymes mixed in a synergetic ratio. PRP is a solution for once daily intravenous administration of a combination of two pancreatic proenzymes, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen, for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Propanc Biopharma has received Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of PRP. The approved indication is one of the most lethal malignancies with a median survival of 6 months and a 5-year survival rate of less than 5 percent.

The Company (after extensive laboratory research and a limited amount of human testing) has evidence that PRP reduce cancer cell growth via promotion of cell differentiation; enhances cell adhesion and may suppress metastasis progression; and has no serious side effects and improves patient survival.

Development progress for PRP includes successful completion of a GLP-compliant, 28-day repeat-dose toxicity study with no toxicological findings after administration. This indicates a broad safety margin. It provides adequate data to support a safe starting dose for First-In-Human studies.

In addition, the FDA granted Orphan Drug Designation status to PRP for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Furthermore, a manufacturing process capable of purifying and stabilizing two active drug substances of the PRP formulation, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen were successfully developed.

In July, Propanc Biopharma announced that it entered national phase for two of its key patent applications from its intellectual property (IP) portfolio. The first patent application, which entered national phase in July, describes a method to eradicate cancer stem cells, and a second patent application, covering proenzyme compositions for the treatment of solid tumors, recently completed national phase entry in mid-July.

Propanc Biopharma filed the patent applications in all major international jurisdictions including the United States and Europe. It also filed the patent applications in key jurisdictions in Asia and South America. Both cover its lead product candidate, PRP, or use as an anti-cancer stem cell therapy that is set to enter clinical development.

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. One is its CURA Division and the other is its Aegis Division. CurAegis is now concentrating on commercialization strategies in diverse 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 and the myCadian™ watch enable the user and third parties to anticipate and prevent undesired or disastrous situations caused by the degradation of alertness. The Company completed its validation studies of the CURA System at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Rochester Medical Center. It 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 CURA System comprises hardware and software that measures numerous 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 reduction in a person’s alertness and to train persons on how to improve alertness levels.

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.

Pertaining to the Aegis Division’s Aegis Pump and Motor, it has eliminated the rotating piston group (the cylinders are stationary). This makes the pump very strong and easy to manufacture. The Company’s patented valving has been integrated to boost efficiencies at peak and off peak operation.

In September of 2015, the Z-Coach e-learning tool was acquired by CurAegis Technologies. The first of six Z-Coach e-learning modules, Z-Coach Aviation, was designed for aviation professionals.

If the CURA (Circadian User Risk Assessment) software detects an issue, Z-Coach creates a back-end solution required to induce change and improve behavior. This program is broken down into two parts: Z-Coach Education and Z-Coach Intervention.

Regarding the CURA System, it now works with iOS and Android phones. The Company has aligned the communications between its watch, the smart phone and its cloud.

The CURA System will make an individual aware of the importance of sleep in their daily life. It will show one how to easily change their behavior to make their life safer, healthier, and longer. Moreover, it gives a person accurate and relevant real-time information concerning their present and long-term sleep and fatigue health.

CurAegis Technologies is on schedule to have the technology for its MyCadian and other wearable products ready for sales and delivery in late March or early April 2018. The Company’s objectives are to make its axial piston hydraulic pumps and/or motors smaller, more efficient and considerably less costly to produce. CurAegis is expecting to have its initial pre-production prototype ready by the end of next month. The Company has tested and proven out a good portion of its technology’s goals.

CurAegis Technologies’ plan is to license its technology to major manufacturers. It may consider an exclusive licensing agreement for a period of time if it believes that it is the best way to reach original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and after-market customers.

CurAegis Technologies, Inc. (CRGS), closed Monday's trading session at $0.30, up 10.70%, on 23,465 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 19,514 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$0.74.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF).

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF) is focused on unlocking the value of existing large-scale U.S.-based lithium brine resources that can quickly be brought into production. The Company believes new lithium production can rapidly be brought on stream by minimizing project risks at selection stage; resource, political & geographic, and regulatory & permitting; and by leveraging advances in lithium extraction technologies and processes.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF) is focused on unlocking the value of existing large-scale U.S.-based lithium brine resources that can quickly be brought into production. The Company believes new lithium production can rapidly be brought on stream by minimizing project risks at selection stage; resource, political & geographic, and regulatory & permitting; and by leveraging advances in lithium extraction technologies and processes.

The Company’s flagship project is in southern Arkansas. The more than 180,000-acre “Smackover Project” is in the most prolific and productive brine processing region in North America. Agreements with large commercial brine operators in the region will allow Standard Lithium to utilize the extensive existing infrastructure, including brine supply and disposal pipelines, water, power and a trained workforce to fast-track project development timelines.

“Arkansas produces about 9.4 billion gallons of brine per year, according to 2010-2016 average statistics reported by the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission.”

Standard Lithium signed a binding MoU with global specialty chemicals company LANXESS Corporation and its U.S. affiliate Great Lakes Chemical Corporation with the purpose of demonstrating the commercial viability of extraction of lithium from brine (“tail brine”) that is produced as part of LANXESS’ bromine extraction business at its three Southern Arkansas facilities.

LANXESS’ land operations in Southern Arkansas encompass more than 150,000 acres, 10,000 brine leases and surface agreements and 250 miles of pipelines. LANXESS extracts the brine from its wells located throughout the area, and the brine is transported to the three Arkansas plants through a network of pipelines. The three bromine extraction plants currently employ approximately 500 people and process and reinject several hundred thousand barrels of brine per day.

Standard Lithium has developed a breakthrough rapid lithium extraction process that reduces the recovery time of extracting lithium from brine to as little as several hours vs. the current industry method that takes years. The process is also much more environmentally friendly with a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional processes. The company has a signed agreement to locate a demonstration scale lithium extraction plant inside one of LANXESS’ chemical plants in Southern Arkansas.

The Company has also signed an option agreement with NYSE-listed Tetra Technologies for the lithium rights for exploration, extraction, and possible commercial development on approximately 30,000 acres of brine leases in Southern Arkansas. The largest available land package.

Recent laboratory results of four brine samples recovered from two existing wells in Standard Lithium’s project area showed lithium concentrations ranging between 347-461 mg/L lithium, with an average of 450 mg/L lithium in one of the wells and 350 mg/L in the other. Geological modeling of the project area is complete, and a maiden resource report is on the horizon.

Market Opportunity

World demand for lithium continues to surge. The global lithium compounds market is projected to reach U.S. $5.87 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.22% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium-ion batteries are the fastest growing segment of the market.

Leadership

Standard Lithium’s commitment to being a premier, innovation-driven company focused on developing and commercializing new modern processes for lithium extraction is bolstered by the leading experts that comprise the company’s Scientific Advisory Council. Each member was selected because of their experience and expertise in areas that are central to and/or complement Standard Lithium’s current development plans. Standard Lithium recently welcomed to the Council world-renowned chemist Dr. Barry Sharpless, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.

Standard Lithium is led by a team of professionals with proven strong technical and project development skills. CEO Robert Mintak has a global network of industry contacts and is a pioneer in the rapidly evolving lithium space. COO and President Dr. Andy Robinson is an experienced geoscientist with 20+ years of experience and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. Dr. Robinson has worked on a wide range of projects in the resource, power and energy sectors in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.

The company recently appointed Robert Cross as non-executive chairman. Cross is an engineer with 25 years of experience as a financier and company builder in the mining and oil and gas sectors. He co-founded and serves as chairman of B2Gold, a top-performing growing gold producer which is expected to achieve nearly 1 million ounces of low-cost gold production in 2018.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (OTC: TGODF).

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to be featured as the Keynote Interview for the upcoming Green Market Summit this Friday, September 14, 2018 with CNBC's Jim Cramer. Also today, NetworkNewsWire covered the company’s announcement that it will present live at VirtualInvestorConferences.com on September 12, 2018, at 2:30 PM ET. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/Jdm3Z.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

The DeepMarkit platform integrates next-gen gamification engagement mechanics with interactive advertising industry standards and powerful visuals, including 3-D images. Customers may choose from both free and paid solutions suitable for campaigns of all sizes, targeting multiple channels on the web, mobile and social media.

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

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

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

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

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

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) has expanded its presence in the legalized cannabis space from its core Green FinCEN-compliant processing system, which creates a digital and cashless way for dispensaries and other legalized merchants to do business outside of the traditional banking system. Online signup has generated more applications for Green, according to REFG (http://nnw.fm/KElm1).

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (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 $0.0326, off by 6.86%, on 664,202 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 324,861 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF).

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF), a company that develops and implements new technologies for the energy industry, has engaged a software engineering firm to create blockchain applications for its PetroBLOQ platform, according to a company press release (http://nnw.fm/S8kTG).

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.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST).

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTC: ETST) anticipates uplisting to the OTCQB Venture Market after receiving a Form 10 registration statement filing date. The biotech company will begin filing annual reports with the SEC on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and periodic reports on Form 8-K. Additional reporting obligations include shareholder actions, proxies and stock ownership rules (http://nnw.fm/pDC4Y).

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.

Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:

  • Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
  • Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
  • KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.

Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.

In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.

The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.

Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.

Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.

The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.

Earth Science Tech’s products include CBD, a natural constituent of hemp oil derived from hemp stalk and seed. EST offers CBD in the form of vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, homeopathies, functional foods and other products delivered in such forms as capsules, tablets, soft gels, chewables, liquids, creams, sprays, powders and whole herbs. Earth Science products can be found at retail stores throughout the United States and are available for purchase through the internet.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST), closed the day's trading session at $0.673, off by 10.36%, on 5,506 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 12,336 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.4379/$3.8798.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY).

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.

The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.

A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.

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

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

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

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

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY), closed the day's trading session at $0.0008, up 14.29%, on 1,795,436 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 21,268,074 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $3.609/$16.00.

WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (TVTV) is a next-generation OTT (Over-the-top) television subscription service that manages live-stream broadcast programming rights across multiple devices, geographies and languages, providing viewers with personalized service that is truly “wherever” they may be watching TV.

WhereverTV’s patented Interactive Program Guide (IPG) technology currently handles over 125 live channels that are broadcasted securely over the Internet to any Internet-enabled device anywhere in the world. Many of the company’s channels are the same as those broadcasted by traditional cable and satellite companies. For example, the World News Now package includes One America News, RT News (Russia Today), Bloomberg TV, CBN News and EuroNews Live — the latter provides pan-European coverage in 350 million households in 155 countries. Other channel packages include Choice TV (a wide variety of popular options for the family), Spanish TV, Faith TV and Morocco TV, providing current genre-specific subscriptions for news, faith, drama, sports, movie, reality and children’s programming.

WhereverTV’s free app works with iOS and Android devices to cover the spectrum of mobile consumer needs, as well as with personal desktop or laptop computers through its over the top (OTT) platform. The platform delivers channels, shows and events to SmartTVs and digital media receivers that include Google Chromecast, AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV, iPhone, iPad, Android Smartphone and TabletPCs, with DVR recording functionality slated for future development.

The company, based in Fort Myers, Florida, was developed in 2007 as a solution to its founder’s frustration with the complexities of trying to stream English speaking content while abroad.  As the live-streaming market has developed over the decade since then, WhereverTV has gained recognition as a pioneer in next-generation content delivery systems.

WhereverTV’s strategy is to increase revenue-generating subscriptions worldwide through the acquisition of content that is desirable to consumers and deliverable anywhere a device can connect to the Internet. Prepaid accounts will be accessed through the cloud, and the IPG technology will allow users to make their viewing choices. The company has developed two separate divisions, one for worldwide distribution and one for Latin American distribution.

In 2017, the company acquired Digital Rodeo, LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company that delivers a rich mixture of music and videos from independent country artists, current arrests and legacy artists, as well as similar Florida-based companies Digital RodeoTV, LLC (Name changed to WhereverTV Country in 2018), Digital CrossTV, Inc., Digital PopTV, Inc., and Digital RockTV, Inc.

WhereverTV is transitioning from a development to operational company and in doing so we have refined our 2018 business model,” CEO Edward D. Ciofani stated. “Our business model calls for content acquisition from around the world, exclusive content development, Major Marketing Alliances, similar to the announced Google Chromecast for Latin America and major marketing initiatives including social media marketing. … There are a lot of content providers (channel providers) around the world that offer a uniquely diversified perspective of cultures, travel and lifestyle content.”

As an increasing number of people “Cord-Cutters” no longer subscribe to the traditional cable or satellite distribution but rather a simpler lower cost means of watching content. The streaming OTT industry is expected to grow to $62 billion by 2020 — nearly triple its revenues in 2015, per Goldman Small Cap Research. Future Market Insights estimated the North America OTT market alone at $16.29 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 17.4 percent through 2028. The arrival of 5G technology this year has the potential to accelerate the pace.

Auscrete Corp. (ASCK)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Auscrete Corp. (ASCK).

Auscrete Corp. (ASCK) is a building products manufacturer of environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient housing and commercial structures using a lightweight hybrid concrete material developed through a proprietary technology. Auscrete’s unique process produces a medium that is cost-efficient, extremely soundproof, offers high insulation values, requires very low maintenance, won’t burn, non-toxic, highly resistant to insects and mold, and resists damage from hurricane forces and earth tremors. It’s a more affordable, energy-efficient “green” construction material that can be utilized for building residential housing and commercial structures.

Affordable homes are increasingly becoming more difficult to purchase in the U.S. with the median price of a new home consistently rising while wages stay stagnant in many areas and mortgage rates rise. The average price of new homes sold in the U.S. in 2017 was nearly $385,000, according to Statista. The homeownership rate in the U.S. has been in decline since 2004, the report states, and now amounts to a little more than 64 percent of Americans.

Auscrete’s lightweight concrete product is described as an aerated concrete material following infusion of a specially designed foaming agent during manufacture. This technology enables the product to have millions of minuscule air bubble “aggregates” introduced and evenly distributed throughout the cast sections, which creates a unique, lightweight product without compromising strength or structural integrity. Each hybrid panel also incorporates a distinctive XPS insulation amalgamation that guarantees greater comfort in a wide range of climatic conditions and a reduction in heating and cooling costs. The final product is a light and strong concrete panel with an extremely high insulation value, as well as excellent fire resistance and sound-proofing qualities.

Auscrete’s product also offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, allowing architects and engineers to develop new design and construction concepts that take advantage of the product’s reduced weight, which is nearly half that of normal concrete. Each panel can be cast in large sections, a common size being 16-feet by 8-feet, for easier transportation and faster construction on site. Savings are enhanced, not only by the energy efficiency of each panel, but through the use of mass production techniques. Auscrete estimates the company can produce a ready-to-move-in turnkey house for around $100 per square foot, which is significantly less than the 2017 median list price of $148 per square foot in the U.S., according to a report by Zillow.

Auscrete is constructing its flagship, 10-acre facility in Goldendale, Washington, on initially 5 acres the company recently purchased with the option to purchase another 5 adjacent acres. This new campus will ultimately comprise of 6 buildings, including 3 production buildings of 25,000 sq. ft. with each production buildings’ capacity of 100 homes annually, giving this flagship facility the ability to produce 300 homes or equivalent commercial structures per year.

During this construction phase, Auscrete has leased a commercial building in Goldendale. The facility will be used as a temporary headquarters and will also serve as a refurbishing station for production equipment the company has developed and used in its prior production plant. John Sprovieri, CEO and founder of Auscrete Corporation, is at the helm of the company with Mike Young serving as vice president of internal operations and Otto Paulette controlling the in-house mechanical services.

Auscrete’s Investor Relations Director, Lee Odom said, “The company’s construction process has already attracted interest from many developers, contractors and builders, some with large tracts of land looking to make available, significant numbers of Affordable Homes throughout the Country. Additionally, there have been significant commercial projects offered including 300 room destination hotel resorts, correctional facilities, a shopping complex, and a court house along with a flood of inquiries from people who are looking for more affordable building options”.

“This could really launch the commercial aspect for?ASCK, apart from residential home production which so many investors are not yet aware of,” Odom said. “A strong combination of both will lead?ASCK?to better performance through all business cycles, thus continuing to enhance the shareholder values, which is always the ultimate goal of Auscrete Corporation.”

Auscrete Corp. (ASCK), closed the day's trading session at $0.04, off by 0.25%, on 5,650 volume with. The average volume for the last 60 days is 33,137 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0099/$32.90.
