Nemaura Medical, Inc. is a medical technology business with its corporate headquarters in Loughborough, England. The Company is developing the wireless sugarBEAT® disposable adhesive skin-patch as a non-invasive, needle-free, pain-free, and affordable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system for adjunctive use by diabetics.
Nemaura Medical’s patient-friendly technology has the potential to transform health monitoring through providing real-time, tailored feedback on glucose, lactate, and other important body performance metrics. Nemaura Medical’s shares trade on the NasdaqCM.
Nemaura’s patented BEAT™ technology (passing a mild, non-perceptible electric current across the skin) draws a small number of selected molecules, such as glucose, into a patch placed on the skin. These molecules are drawn out of the interstitial fluid. The patch (via a sensor) measures the amount of that molecule present, converting it into a meaningful concentration value for clinical diagnosis or preliminary guidance for self-treatment.
The BEAT™ technology will allow remote continuous monitoring of chronic diseases and health conditions. It is to replace traditional invasive methods of diagnosis and healthcare observation procedures.
The SugarBEAT® App can be pre-downloaded on a user’s smart device. There is an optional sugarBEAT® handheld reader (applicable where a user chooses not to use their own smart device). sugarBEAT® provides accurate glucose measurement. SugarBEAT® consists of a reusable transmitter containing a daily-disposable adhesive skin-patch.

HealthLynked centers on improving healthcare through connecting patients with their healthcare providers. The HealthLynked Network focuses on the efficient, secure exchange of medical information between patients and their healthcare providers.
The cloud-based HealthLynked Network lets patient's medical records move with them. This is so one’s medical records are not fragmented in manifold healthcare systems and/or EHR systems.
HealthLynked profile information safeguards that doctors don't prescribe potentially harmful medications in case a patient forgets to mention one or more present medications while talking to their doctor. Moreover, the HealthLynked Healthcare Summary page allows patients to keep their medical records updated. This helps physicians to be more productive and provide valid medical care.
Healthcare experts can easily be in touch with patients. They can provide their advice in case of emergencies via the Telemedicine Portal. The HealthLynked Healthcare Summary permits patients to maintain a complete medical profile in coordination with physicians. All information is systematically categorized. As a result, physicians have a total overview of patient health without them having to fill unnecessary paperwork.
This past September, HealthLynked announced it has created more than 880,000 HealthLynked Provider base profiles for every physician in the United States. The creation of the HealthLynked provider network is a vital step in allowing the Company’s patient members to search, geo-locate, and ultimately "Lynk" to any healthcare provider anywhere in the U.S.
Last month, HealthLynked announced its Q3 2017 financial results. It reported revenue of $480,723, and an operating loss of $512,153, which included roughly $135,500 of legal, accounting and other expenses related to the Company’s continuing public filings and investor relations cost and about $158,500 of incremental salary, benefits and other costs related to investment in initial sales and marketing efforts, and software development of the HealthLynked Network.
This was offset by a decrease in Naples Women’s Center’s general and administrative expenses of roughly $45,000, versus Q3 of 2016. The results compare with revenue of $516,798 and an operating loss of $482,570 in Q2 of 2016.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
Consumers are switching to electric vehicles faster than previously thought, making an expected boom in demand for battery-grade lithium ever more real. Standard Lithium (TSXV: SLL) (OTC: STLHF) stands to profit as they bring new supplies online.
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.
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.
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. He was also co-founder and chairman of Bankers Petroleum Ltd.; co-founder and chairman of Petrodorado Energy Ltd.; and until October 2007 was the non-executive chairman of Northern Orion Resources Inc. He also was previously the chairman and CEO of Yorkton Securities Inc., and a partner in investment banking with Gordon Capital Corp. in Toronto. Cross has an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo (1982) and received an MBA from Harvard in 1987.
Following a multi-million-dollar financing in Q1 2018, Standard Lithium is well-positioned to meet its upcoming milestones including two maiden resource reports and the launch of its breakthrough rapid lithium extraction technology.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $1.22, up 18.45%, on 339,240 volume with 220 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 29,485 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.604/$2.23.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)
PressureBioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) ("PBI" or the "Company"), a leader in thedevelopment and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based instruments, consumables,and platform technology solutions to the worldwide life sciences industry,today announced the sale of the first two instruments from its newest line ofhigh-pressure based instrument systems, the HUB880 Explorer.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.
The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.
Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”
Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.
The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.
Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.
This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.
The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.95, up 12.86%, on 1,965 volume with 10 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1,753 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.70/$5.00.

NUGL Inc. (NUGL)
Despite the U.S. federal government’s reluctance to legalize cannabis over the past several years or even encourage its use in scientific research, the medical marijuana industry has grown state-by-state and in other countries, along with a burgeoning acceptance of recreational marijuana use to such a point that consumers have become acquainted enough with cannabis to develop preferences for specialty strains and outlets. That consumer development parallels growing diversification within the cannabis industry, as companies step forward to fill a variety of service and product needs, and that, in turn, has created a niche for an enterprising cannabis industry search engine company named NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL).
NUGL Inc. (NUGL) is focused on leading the evolution in business relations, development and organic data in the cannabis industry with a distinct platform. In this effort, it has developed a leading-edge, first of its kind search app and online directory for the marijuana industry that provides a one-stop source and listings for dispensaries, strains, doctors, lawyers, service professionals, vape shops, hydro stores and brands.
Headquartered in Chino Hills, California, which is home to a projected $5 billion legal marijuana marketplace, NUGL is on track to become a major asset for the global cannabis industry and related services sectors. The company recently established a strategic partnership with Thinklogic and appointed CEO Chris Adams to NUGL’s growing board of directors.

Each of the category rankings allow users to leave comments and choose among a 5-star rating among all categories or as few as they wish. The software’s rating platform allows for customization and transparency for users while providing invaluable feedback to shops and professional services.
“This is a major feature that is critical to our community,” said Jeff Odle, NUGL’s CTO. “Enhanced ratings will be a definitive difference validating our organic listings and raising the standard for the industry. We want the users to know what they are getting before they step into a store or sign up for a service.”
NUGL is growing its team of developers and launching new features on an ongoing basis. The company is ahead of an impressive timeline, which includes building blocks for scalability and massive growth.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) was highlighted today in an article on the massive impact of CBD on the healthcare product industry, which continues to be widely apparent as consumers increasingly show a preference for alternative methods of medicine. A new report by the Brightfield Group estimates the CBD market is growing at a faster rate than anticipated, reaching sales of $22 Billion by 2022.
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.
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.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Biotechnology company Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) yesterday announced that it has been approved for uplisting to the OTCQB Venture Market. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/n75oI. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how ETST has taken another major step in its mission to become a global leader in the research, development and sale of hemp-derived, CBD-based pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and dietary supplements, amid the ongoing surge in cannabinoid therapeutics.
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 $0.80, up 5.33%, on 53,670 volume with 57 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 12,990 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.324/$1.62.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)
Amid concerns worldwide about the deleterious effects of pollutants on the planet’s ecosystems, oil and gas industry players such as Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) continue building the visibility of their efforts to be environmentally conscious, and Petroteq’s current real-time rollout of proprietary technology that will extract oil in a closed-loop, zero-harm process puts it in a vanguard position for touting energy and environmentalism’s compatibility.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil and gas exploration and production on mineral leases it owns in Texas with Accord GR Energy Inc. and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ, the Company’s collaboration formed with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC: BITCF). PetroBLOQ’s novel blockchain-based oil and gas supply chain management platform is currently being co-developed by the two companies.
PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.
“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy CEO Alex Blyumkin.
In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry. “API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.
Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.
The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 3,000-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Liquid Extraction System.
The company’s Texas location includes an ownership interest (46%) in 7,000 acres under mineral leases with Accord, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company that focuses on the development and recovery of heavy oil reserves and deposits. Two enhanced, licensed oil recovery technologies designed to increase oil recovery from more than 80 shallow oil wells on the property are expected to substantially improve the recovery rates of heavy oil deposits in this area. In both the Utah oil sands and traditional oil patch Texas project, the Company, its subsidiaries and Accord are using proprietary technologies, processes and methodologies to recover heavy oil, providing a distinct, strategic economic advantage for Petroteq Energy and its shareholders.
The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.
The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed the day's trading session at $1.09, up 0.93%, on 261,864 volume with 184 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 396,145 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2899/$1.8892.

WhereverTV’s prepaid, no-contract, subscription television services are delivered to a variety of devices including AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Google Chromecast, smartphones, Tablet PCs, streaming media players, computers and connected TVs.
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.
WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (TVTV), closed the day's trading session at $0.06, even for the day. The average volume for the last 3 months is 26,571 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.041/$0.460.

Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) (OTC: KBEVF)
Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE:KBEV)(OTC: KBEVF) (the "Company" or "Koios") is pleased to announce it has entered into a distribution agreement with Western Functional Beverages, a leading distributor of healthy, functional drinks targeting the fitness crowd in the State of Wyoming.
Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV) (OTC: KBEVF) develops and distributes nature-based products that boost brain function, enhance health, and improve productivity. Its core vision is to help a billion people worldwide live more productively through the development of nootropics, which are supplements that improve cognitive abilities.
The company’s flagship product, Koios, is a GMP-certified dietary supplement. Made from natural ingredients and backed by science, Koios is designed to improve focus, memory, mental drive, clarity and energy. The company produces Koios in the following formulations:
- Powder supplements containing nootropics as well as caffeine and lion’s mane and chaga mushrooms;
- Vegan-friendly capsules;
- Canned beverages containing nootropics along with MCT oil to burn fat and increase metabolism.
Not to be mistaken with prescription-only drugs which are at times used for similar effects, nootropics are over-the-counter dietary supplements; some of which, like Koios, contain ingredients that are currently used in the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The global field of nootropics is growing rapidly and expected to reach USD $6,059.4 Mn by 2024 with a CAGR of 17.9 percent from 2016 to 2024.
According to media reports, there is believed to be significant and growing use of nootropics among high-achieving students and professionals. The UK’s leading Guardian newspaper found that nootropics are commonly used in Silicon Valley by computer industry professionals who want to “hack” their minds and maximize their productivity without any possible negative effects on the brain.
Koios was born out of the personal struggles of its founder and CEO, Chris Miller, who has ADHD. Miller found that the symptoms of his condition held him back when navigating the competitive modern workplace. Unhappy with the effects of the Adderall he was prescribed, Chris began a search for a natural remedy that would improve his attention and mental capacity.
Speaking of his struggles at this time, Miller says, “Coffee and energy drinks were no longer helping me. Eventually, I was drinking so much caffeine that I was beginning to notice negative and troubling health effects.” He adds, “I believed there had to be a better way. Better technology that the earth was providing that I could implement and not only boost my daily performance but take care of my brain and body long-term.” After years of experiments and with the help of leading scientists, he developed Koios, named after the Greek Titan who represented rational intelligence.
Koios contains the following ingredients, among others:
- Vitamin B12: Crucial for the function of the nervous system and the synthesis of DNA, B12 also helps in the creation of red blood cells.
- Vitamin B6: This vitamin is crucial for brain development among children and brain function in adults. B6 is also important in the production of key hormones: serotonin, which regulates mood, norepinephrine, which helps us handle stress, and dopamine.
- Huperzine A: Developed from the Chinese club moss plant, huperzine A is used on Alzheimer’s patients to boost their memories. It is also used to raise energy levels and alertness and is the subject of medical trials to test its efficacy when combined with other drugs.
- Bacopa: Also known as brahmi, bacopa is an Indian herb used in Ayurvedic medicine to improve concentration and memory. Modern science has recognized its effectiveness, and it is used to treat symptoms caused by Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD and anxiety.
- Ciwujia: Sports scientists have been interested in this herb since they heard of how mountain climbers in Tibet use it to boost their performance at high altitudes. Peer-reviewed research has shown that Ciwujia has clear positive effects on endurance.
A full breakdown of Koios’ active ingredients is available on the company website.
Additionally, safety is paramount for Koios, with all its products developed in a high-grade nutraceutical laboratory which is GMP-certified and in compliance with FDA guidelines. Koios only uses high-quality ingredients sourced from the best possible locations in order to deliver a product that is not only safe but also “one of the world’s greatest nootropic blends.”
The company’s products can be found online and in stores, both across the United States and internationally, via a continuously growing distribution network.
Koios CEO Chris Miller is supported by a team with strong credentials in medical supplement start-ups, corporate finance and sales, which includes CFO/Director Anthony Jackson, Director Scott Walters, Director Konstantine Lichtenwald and Vice President of Sales Gina Burrus.
With people seeking a mental edge and cognitive boost, Koios believes that there is an opening in the market for its nature-based, over-the-counter nootropics, especially when current prescription medicines have worrying side effects..
Koios Beverage Corp. (KBEVF), closed the day's trading session at $0.3941, off by 0.48%, on 484,230 volume with 228 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 375,036 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.001/$0.5121.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING), a client of NNW focused on acquiring companies that will benefit from the injection of growth capital and technology integration. To view the full publication, titled “Gambling and Tech Companies Charge into American Sports Betting Market,” visit: http://nnw.fm/RaN3D.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
- Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
- Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
- Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.
SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), closed the day's trading session at $0.0261, off by 8.23%, on 6,797,180 volume with 256 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 3,715,992 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.02349/$0.133.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
Owing to recent surges in the price of its Canadian-listed shares, The Green Organic Dutchman’s (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) market cap recently exceeded $2 billion. To view a detailed quote, visit: http://nnw.fm/Cui0U. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article analyzing how the Cannabidiol (CBD) infused products market continues to experience rapidly rising consumer demand as its multi-billion dollar revenues climb higher.
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.
