INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB).

INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB), a clinical-stage immunology company focused on developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, today announced its receipt of United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) formal notice of allowance to Patent Application Serial No. 15/776,061. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/ULr9Z.

INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB) is a diversified clinical-stage immunology company developing novel therapies that target distinct parts of a patient's innate immune system to fight disease. Drug candidates INKmune™ and INB03 may be used to treat cancer while XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation as a cause of Alzheimer's disease. INmune Bio's product platforms utilize a precision therapy approach to promote the body's innate immune response to treat unsolved problems in medicine.

INmune Bio is the first biotechnology company to close an initial public offering (IPO) in 2019 and commence trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The company also received a "Part the Cloud" award from the Alzheimer's Association in 2018 which included a $1 million grant to advance INmune Bio's XPro1595 drug candidate.

INmune Bio's product pipeline targets three segments of concern:

  • Alzheimer's disease/dementia claims 5.5 million patients in the United States. INmune Bio views Alzheimer's as an immunologic disease which changes the drug discovery process, changes the way clinical trials are designed, and may provide hope for patients and caregivers.
  • Cancer residual disease which is expected to generate more than 1.7 million new cases yearly with an estimated 609,640 fatalities. INMB believe that converting resting Natural Killer ("NK") cells to primed NK cells, which kill cancerous cells on contact, is an important therapeutic strategy to help clear residual disease.
  • Resistance to immunotherapy. By preventing the proliferation and function of cells that resist immunotherapy, patients should have a stronger immune response to cancer cells and may respond better to other cancer treatments including immunotherapy and live longer.

INmune Bio Drug Candidates and Clinical Programs

INKmune is a biologic delivery system that primes a patient's resting NK cells to kill cancer. INKmune targets residual disease for patients that have completed initial cancer therapy (surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy) and have a low burden of disease with a high risk of relapse.

In late 2019, INKmune will start enrolling patients in a phase I/II trial for women with relapsed refractory ovarian cancer. In many patients, cancer relapse after seemingly effective cancer therapy is due to a failure of the patients own NK cells to eliminate minimal residual disease ("MRD").

Using a novel mechanism of action and a precision medicine approach, INKmune therapy should enhance NK cells' ability to eliminate residual disease.

INB03 is a checkpoint inhibitor that targets myeloid derived suppressor cells ("MDSC") which can produce an immunosuppressive shield that prevents a patient's own immune system from attacking the cancer. INmune Bio is currently completing a monotherapy INB03 phase I trial in patients with advanced solid tumors. The INB03 program will transition into a combination therapy clinical program in the summer of 2019 to prepare for a phase II trial in patients resistant to checkpoint inhibitors due to increased MDSC.

Treatment with INB03 should eliminate MDSC in the tumor microenvironment to allow checkpoint inhibitors to be therapeutically effective.

XPro1595 targets the microglial immune cells of the brain that are activated in many Alzheimer's disease patients. These microglial cells are a cause of neuroinflammation that can kill nerve cells and promote synaptic dysfunction – the cause of dementia in Alzheimer's.

The three-month, phase I trial is expected to enroll 18 patients in summer of 2019. It is designed to measure traditional and novel biomarkers of inflammation in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease who have neuroinflammation. The trial is supported by a $1 million "Part the Cloud" grant from the Alzheimer's Association. Inflammation, especially chronic inflammation, is being recognized as an important part of the pathology of many diseases including cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

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) is a knowledgeable and prosperous gas, liquids and biomass extractor and refiner using patented technologies for extraction and distillation processes. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/L44ry.

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.

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.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD).

Sugarmade Inc. (OTC:SGMD) today announces its placement in an editorial published by CannabisNewsWire ("CNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities in the cannabis industry. To view the full publication, titled “Hemp Set to Overtake Tobacco in Kentucky Amid Boom for Growers, Suppliers,” visit: http://cnw.fm/rWM36.

Sugarmade, Inc. (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. He is also the founder of CarryOutSupplies.com, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.

Arman Tabatabaei serves as operations consultant, providing high-level, day-to-day strategic guidance and tactical operational supervision for all aspects of the corporation’s business. He is an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting and profit and loss management.

Sugarmade specializes in growing and acquiring innovative brands to maximize value for company employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Sugarmade believes its future is very bright as the company expands operations within the cultivation sector and rapidly increases its revenue base. 6

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Organigram Holdings Inc. (OGI).

OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (TSX:OGI) (NASDAQ:OGI) was highlighted today in a publication from Livemoney, examining how the CBD story is exploding. At current pace, The Brightfield Group says CBD sales could explode to $23.7 billion by 2023.

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) is the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading Canadian licensed producer (“LP”) of high-quality cannabis and extract-based products. Founded in 2013, Organigram is focused on producing high quality, indoor-grown cannabis for patients and adult recreational consumers in Canada, as well as developing international business partnerships to expand the Company’s global footprint. 

The Company has distribution arrangements in all 10 provinces1. Organigram delivers industry-leading yields and maximizes quality cannabis production at the lowest cultivation cost per gram among publicly reporting Canadian LPs.

Financial Results

In Q2 2019, the Company reported record net revenue of C$26.9 million, cash cost of cultivation of C$0.65 per gram, industry leading gross margin of C$16 million or 60% and adjusted EBITDA of C$13.3 million or margin of 49%, positive for the third consecutive quarter.

Significant Expansion Plans with Streamlined Licensing Process

Located in Moncton, New Brunswick, Organigram’s production facility and research & development program includes a state of the art, indoor 3-tier cultivation system which maximizes facility square footage. Its Phase 4 expansion project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 for increased target production capacity of 113,000 kg/year (249,000 lbs)2. As the Company expands its cultivation and processing capacities, Organigram is able to file amendments to the existing facility and each new production area is largely a replica of previously licensed areas, which results in a relatively streamlined and predictable licensing process with Health Canada.

In addition to increased production capacity from Phase 4, Organigram’s Phase 5 expansion includes plans for additional extraction capacity and its own edibles facility. Construction is expected to be substantially completed in October 2019.

Proprietary Technology

The Company’s indoor facility allows for control of all critical facets of the lighting and environmental elements to drive maximum quality and yield in the plants. The Company’s in-house proprietary information technology system, called OrganiGrow, tracks grow cycles, environmental conditions and other factors to optimize cultivation.

Numerous design and automation improvements include automated potting, pre-roll and packaging machines, and larger propagation rooms with advanced environmental systems.

Well Positioned for Canada’s Legalization of Edibles and Other Derivatives Products

Through its facility expansions, partnerships and research and development, the Company is well-positioned to capture further growth from the legalization of edibles and derivative products expected in October 2019. Its initial product focus is on vaporizable products and edibles.

Organigram’s development of a shelf-stable, thermally stable, water-soluble and tasteless cannabinoid nano-emulsion formulation may provide for an initial onset of effect within 10 to 15 minutes in a beverage. Non-cannabis formulations with a similar molecule size are water-soluble in humans (i.e., absorbed through the bloodstream rather than requiring first-pass liver metabolism, which results in longer onset and duration uncertainty). The Company expects to receive research and development licensing in the near term, at which point testing will be conducted to confirm the onset and duration.

Organigram has entered into an exclusive consulting agreement with The Green Solution (TGS), a proven market leader based in Denver, Colorado for the development of commercial scale extraction and derivative product development in Canada. Organigram’s partnership with Canada’s Smartest Kitchen, a leader in food product development, will expand the Company’s edibles R&D program.

The Company recently announced a C$15 million investment commitment in a high-speed, high-capacity, fully automated production line with a capacity of 4 million kilograms of exceptional chocolate cannabis edibles per year.

Organigram also has a multiyear extraction contract with Valens GroWorks Corp. to produce extract concentrate for oils and other derivative products.

Disruptive Technology

Through its partnership with Hyasynth Biologicals Inc., a biotech company and leader in the field of cannabinoid science and biosynthesis, Organigram has invested in a potentially disruptive technology that uses patented yeast strains and enzymes to naturally produce cannabinoids without growing the cannabis plant. This process has the potential to create a global supply of pure cannabinoids at a fraction of the cost of traditional cultivation. Organigram views this investment as providing early access to what it expects to be the future of cannabinoid production – cost-effectiveness, purity and scalability.

International

Organigram believes there will be increasing demand for CBD in Canada and beyond. As such, the Company has invested in Alpha-Cannabis Germany (ACG) and expects to provide ACG with flower for conversion into extracts. ACG is a medical cannabis provider serving the largest legalized medical market in Europe. The Company anticipates entering into an agreement with ACB to purchase pure synthetic CBD isolate in the future.

Organigram is also invested in Eviana Health Corp. (CSE: EHC), a Serbian-based company with hemp farming and processing assets.

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. (the "Company" or "TGOD") (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF), a leading producer of premium certified organic cannabis, is pleased to announce that following its launch in Ontario at the end of August, which marked the Company's entrance into Canada's recreational market, initial demand has exceeded expectations. TGOD's high-THC signature strain, Unite Organic, is performing well online and at dispensaries, triggering a second order from the OCS earlier than initially anticipated.

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.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sproutly Canada, Inc. (SRUTF).

Sproutly Canada Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) today announces its placement in an editorial published by CannabisNewsWire ("CNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities in the cannabis industry. To view the full publication, titled “Technological Innovation Pushes Bounds of Edible Cannabis Market,” please visit: http://cnw.fm/9nHVN.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.

To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.

This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.

Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.

Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.

Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.

Management

Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOAD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOAD).

Innovative hemp and cannabis corporation Marijuana Company of America (OTCQB: MCOA, MCOAD) recently introduced its new joint venture, a premium-cannabis delivery service called VivaBuds, through a virtual launch party. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/uFA5S. Also today, the company was featured in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. The former head of the FDA has said that the conflict between the federal and state marijuana laws has created regulatory gaps which have given chance to tainted or substandard products to enter the market, resulting in the fatal lung injuries that have been reported recently. He hinted that federal action could put an end to this problem.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOAD) (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.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (IGNG).

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG) was highlighted today in a publication by Wall Street PR.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., a California corporation (“Grapefruit”), as of May 31, 2019, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (OTC: IGNG), a Delaware corporation whose shares of $.001 par value common stock are publicly traded on the OTCMarkets OTCQB Market under the symbol “IGNG.” IGNG is subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and files annual and quarterly reports pursuant thereto. Grapefruit holds licenses originally issued by the State of California in January 2018 to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products. Grapefruit’s management now owns a controlling interest in IGNG which now owns 100% of Grapefruit’s outstanding shares. As a result, IGNG’s financial reports will consolidate both IGNG’s and Grapefruit’s balance sheet, statement of operation and statement of cash flows and IGNG and Grapefruit will be operated as a single company. IGNG intends to change its name to Grapefruit and to obtain a more appropriate trading symbol as soon as possible. Hereinafter the combined companies will be referred to as “Grapefruit” or the “Company.”

Grapefruit’s corporate headquarters is in Westwood, Los Angeles, California. Grapefruit holds licenses to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products which were originally issued in January 2018 and is fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations to operate its cannabis manufacturing and distribution businesses.

The company is well-focused on sourcing only the “best of the best” raw cannabis materials to create the highest quality, most-trusted and consistent recreational and medical cannabis products for its customers. Grapefruit is committed to ensuring class-leading quality by rigorously testing the purity and potency of its raw materials throughout the manufacturing process and distribution chain.

Grapefruit owns and operates its fully licensed and compliant ethanol extraction laboratory located in the Coachillin’ Industrial Cultivation and Ancillary Canna-Business Park in Desert Hot Springs, California. The company’s extraction lab produces high quality, cannabis-derived distillate, also known as “honey oil,” from cannabis flower and “trim.” THC honey oil is one of base cannabis commodities which serves as the active ingredient in everything from infused edibles and tinctures/creams to the cartridges used in vapes and e-cigarettes. Honey oil often sells on the wholesale marketplace for thousands of dollars per liter, with pricing being dependent on quantity purchased, as well as other market factors such as the availability and cost of the underlying flowers and/or trim.

Grapefruit began its extraction operations in May 2019. Plans are in place to expand its honey oil production through the purchase of additional distillation equipment, which is expected to significantly increase the company’s production capacity by the fourth quarter of 2019. Grapefruit’s extraction lab is fully scalable and expansion will be built-out on a two-acre lot owned by Grapefruit at the Coachillin’ site adjacent to its current manufacturing and distribution operation.

Grapefruit selected the City of Desert Hot Springs for its cannabis extraction laboratory, because the city has created a friendly business environment for cannabis-based manufacturers, including incentives like the absence of taxes on cannabis oil production revenues. This affords Grapefruit a fundamental competitive market advantage over other Honey Oil producers.

The California cannabis regulatory scheme is unique in that it requires all cultivators (cannabis farms) and manufacturers (whether producing oils/distillates, infused edibles, tinctures creams or other cannabis products) to sell their products into the legal cannabis wholesale and retail markets exclusively through licensed distributors such as Grapefruit. Grapefruit initially obtained its California recreational and medicinal cannabis distribution license Jan. 4, 2018. In May 2019, Grapefruit was granted its provisional distribution license which is renewable annually, thereby cementing the regulatory foundation necessary to rapidly expand its distribution business.

Grapefruit’s distribution license affords it a twofold strategic advantage: first, to market and sell its own cannabis product lines to retailers throughout California; and second, to buy and resell bulk cannabis flowers and trim as well as all other legal cannabis products to properly licensed distributors and/or retailers throughout California.

The Coachillin’ Canna-Business Park, home to Grapefruit’s current operating facilities and adjacent two-acre parcel of land, is a 160-acre, self-contained legally mapped compound providing the Company with a fully permitted and serviced physical plant from which Grapefruit intends to establish a leading position in the booming California cannabis sector. The parcel was purchased by the Company prior to the Park’s full development, and the value of the land the Company owns has conservatively since doubled in value to over $2 million. Additional long-term benefits of the Coachillin’ compound include agricultural rates for power, which are currently $0.09 per kilowatt hour; the Park’s deep-water well that fully satisfies its need for water; and security expenses shared by all resident businesses. The Coachillin’ Park’s promoters also plan to position the Park, located only 10 miles north of rapidly growing uptown Palm Springs and less than 15 miles from the site of the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals as a must-see canna-tourism destination.

Grapefruit’s ultimate goal is to become a vertically integrated, seed-to-sale cannabis and CBD product company serving the California market. Moreover, it plans to roll-out its product lines in other states, such as Nevada, Illinois, Oregon, Colorado and Washington. Grapefruit has plans to build a large, all-inclusive facility that will house a 50,000-square-foot-plus indoor grow canopy, a large extraction laboratory designed to extract both THC and CBD cannabinoids via non-volatile (ethanol) and volatile (butane) processes, a manufacturing space to produce Grapefruit’s vape lines and CBD products, an FDA-certified kitchen for the production of Grapefruit edibles and a distribution facility to sell all products into the entire cannabis market. The indoor grow canopy operation will be outfitted and operated to produce ultra-high-quality flowers and buds, some of which, along with the high-quality trim resulting from cleaning and maintaining the grow, will provide biomass necessary to feed the company’s extraction laboratory. Fueled by this hand cultivated biomass, Grapefruit’s lab will continuously produce pesticide and heavy metal-free world class honey oil to both serve as the active ingredient in all of Grapefruit’s branded and unbranded products and meet the projected ever-growing demand for high quality honey oil in the California market.

Grapefruit’s motto – A High You Can Trust – embodies its philosophy and ethos, reminding consumers of the company’s commitment to manufacturing, procuring and distributing only the highest quality all-natural cannabis flower, concentrates and related products that are free from pesticides, heavy metals and bacteria. Grapefruit will target its products to all recreational cannabis enthusiasts’ as continuous, consistent cannabis products. By relentlessly adhering to these policies Grapefruit intends to become the Titleist of the Cannabis industry, known for unwavering quality and consistency.

Grapefruit is managed by a team of experts possessing the experience, skill and resources required to succeed in the competitive cannabis marketplace. Founded by brothers Bradley Yourist, CEO, and Daniel Yourist, COO, Grapefruit has expanded to become a group of industry professionals sharing a passion for all things cannabis. Both the CEO & COO are attorneys licensed to practice law the State of California who possess expert cannabis licensing and regulatory expertise and experience, which will allow Grapefruit to deftly navigate the ever changing California regulatory landscape and apply for new cannabis licenses at reduced costs when necessary, rather than having to acquire licenses that are often overvalued and/or pay outside counsel to handle such matters.

Grapefruit also has its own line of cannabis-infused concentrates and edibles. Among the brands now in stores or soon to be launched are:

  • Rainbow Dreams is a new lifestyle brand designed specifically for the recreational cannabis marketplace. The Rainbow Dreams brand captures the anything goes party vibe of the 1970s by offering an array of cannabis products, such as a line of vape carts with unique cannabis strains combined with all-natural flavors for a superior no-burn experience. Rainbow Dreams fills an important niche in the marketplace as a top shelf quality product line that is competitively priced.
  • Sugar Stoned, which Grapefruit acquired in the winter of 2018, has always been a popular cannabis edibles brand which terminated operations when recreational cannabis became legal and required a license in California. Grapefruit purchased the Sugar Stoned brand in 2019 and it is now a Grapefruit portfolio brand consisting of a premium quality cannabis-infused gummy line with eight different flavors: blue raspberry, cherry, grape, peach, pineapple, sour apple, strawberry and watermelon. Grapefruit intends to expand the brand in the near future through the release of a variety of infused cookies.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.214, off by 10.4603%, on 2,013,675 volume with 385 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 234,243 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.006095/$0.358999997.

Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR), an early stage research and development company focusing on modern healthy living solutions, is concentrating on developing into a vertically integrated company able to cultivate, manufacture and distribute hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) products.

Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR) is an early-stage research and development company bringing modern healthy living solutions to a multi-billion-dollar market. Cutting-edge technologies within the nutraceuticals, food and drug, and environmental purification sectors are creating a new kind of world culture – one where consumers are demanding access to products that promote health and stave off potential health dangers.

Acquisitions

The latest move will enable the company to grow its own hemp supply, giving it more control over the quality of its ingredients.

Partners

  • Surface to Air Solutions is the North American distributor of a patent-pending, water-based solution known as Purteq, a green technology that works similar to photosynthesis.
