Phase I and II drilling this year returned high-grade gold and copper intersections from shallower skarn zones. Many high-priority targets, including porphyry, will be the emphasis of Phase III drilling.
Broadway Gold Mining previously announced the discovery of a new latite porphyry zone of mineralization at its Madison project in the legendary Butte-Anaconda mining region of Montana.
Mr. Duane Parnham, Broadway Gold Mining’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Broadway's technical team has successfully delivered on a fourth major milestone worthy of additional testing by discovering a porphyry system underlying the shallower skarn zones, which were mined in the past and expanded in our recent drilling. Although indications suggest a typical copper porphyry alteration system is present, this new mineralization discovered at Madison exhibits similar characteristics to the latite porphyry hosted at Barrick's Golden Sunlight Mine (GSM) located 36 kilometers away in Whitehall, Montana."
Recently, Broadway Gold Mining announced that, as a result of its recent porphyry discovery, it has staked additional ground to cover favorable geological and geophysical targets in the area of its 100 percent-owned Madison copper-gold project.
The new claims are contiguous to the south of the Company’s active exploration area. The new claims extend the current Madison property footprint to 2,514 acres.
Broadway’s Phase III drilling program continues. The Company is fully funded for completion of the program. Deeper geophysical targets from the 2017 survey appear to trend through the original property boundary onto the newly acquired claims.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF), a leading producer of premium certified organic cannabis, is pleased to announce that it is hosting site visits for analysts at its Hamilton and Valleyfield facilities on September 19-20. Beyond construction timelines, for the first time the Company is sharing Canadian production ramp-up and other updates which are available on TGOD's website at www.tgod.ca. Also today, the company was highlighted in a publication from Financialnewsmedia.com, examining how recent articles, like one in Investopedia, show that there is no denying that 2018 was a major year for the legal cannabis industry.
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.

Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTC: CHMJF)
Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTC: CHMJF) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. Food safety companies have for long used radio frequency technology to disinfect food. Now this technology is being adopted by the marijuana industry in order to kill pathogens like mold and mildew while maintaining the quality of the marijuana.
Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTC: CHMJF), an investment company focused on the U.S. and international cannabis sectors, provides turnkey solutions for the regulated cannabis industry. The company leverages managements' expertise and decades of experience in the cannabis industry to acquire and develop vertically integrated cannabis assets. Chemistree recently closed on a purchase of prospective cannabis cultivation property in California, made a first investment in the Canadian cannabis industry, owns assets in the State of Washington used to operate an established retail cannabis brand, and has an active pipeline of assets in place to grow its portfolio.
Chemistree offers industry leading expertise across all areas the cannabis business and in its growth as a public or private company.
- Investment and funding for rapid growth
- Vertical integration solutions
- Construction, design and/or optimization of indoor or outdoor cultivation facilities
- Reputation management & influencer outreach
- Branding and Packaging
- Social Media and Media outreach
With the marketing of cannabis companies and their products in its infancy, the company believes the industry offers tremendous opportunity for growth in the U.S. and abroad. Chemistree initially targeted the Pacific Northwest for investment and, following its recent California property purchase, expects to expand vertically across the United States in areas where it has a competitive business advantage.
Through its wholly owned CHM Desert LLC subsidiary, Chemistree owns 9.55 acres of undeveloped land in Desert Hot Springs, California. The property is zoned as Light Industrial Lands Designated for Marijuana Cultivation, and local zoning ordinances allow as a conditional use the location of up to three onsite cannabis cultivation buildings of 68,000 square feet each, along with support space that would support production of 55,000 pounds/year.
Through its wholly owned Chemistree Washington Ltd. subsidiary, Chemistree acquired physical assets used in the cultivation, production and distribution of cannabis. The Washington assets are currently under lease to Sugarleaf Farm LLC, which operates the Sugarleaf brand of retail cannabis products in the State of Washington. Sugarleaf Farm is a Tier 3 cannabis producer and processor whose products are sold in about 125 retail outlets. Chemistree has indicated the relationship with Sugarleaf may provide the company with additional opportunities to become involved in the marketing of Sugarleaf products.
Chemistree funded these acquisitions and investments with the proceeds of two non-brokered private placement financings completed earlier this year under the regulations of the Canadian Securities Exchange, totaling CAD$4.5 million. In conjunction with the private placements, the company was granted approval by the CSE for a change of business to become an Investment Issuer. This funding is expected to provide the company "maximum flexibility to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available in the cannabis industry in Canada and the U.S."
Chemistree also has a strategic investment in Pasha Brands Ltd., a British Columbia based cannabis company with multiple internationally recognized brands. Pasha has a proven history in cannabis retailing and its proposed Licensed Processing (LP) facility on Vancouver Island is in the final stage of the application for government approval. The LP facility is expected to assist in licensing selected craft growers of cannabis and expanding the distribution of locally grown product. The investment represents less than 10% of Chemistree's working capital.

Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR)
Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR), a global science-led consumer health care company that builds and markets some of the world’s most loved cannabis products and brands, continues to achieve its stated strategic goals. Financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2019, show Geyser Brands reporting revenues of $79,434, representing an 81 percent gross profit margin.
Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) is a consumer healthcare company that builds and markets some of the world's most loved cannabis products and brands in the nutraceutical, cosmetics, food and beverage and pet sectors. Using its proprietary nanotechnology formulation, the company delivers creams, beverages, baked goods and tincture formulations with superior bioavailability and water solubility.
The efficacy of most hemp?products is restricted as the insoluble nature of the molecules prevents most of the product from permeating the skin or entering the body system. Geyser Brands solves this insolubility problem with an advanced delivery system that quickly and efficiently transports therapeutic agents directly to the bloodstream for maximum absorbency.
Made with all-natural materials, NanoFusion technology offers an array of advantages: enhances penetration for deeper skin penetration; improves the transport of active ingredients for site-specific targeting; delivers active ingredients across cell membranes for release within the cell; provides longer shelf-life and stability of molecules.
Geyser Brands operates a 7,000-square-foot facility in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, where its initial cannabis cultivation generated the first revenues out of the company's cultivation license granted in October 2018. Geyser Brands is approved as a licensed producer in compliance with Health Canada standards, which allows the company to pursue its processing and sales license. Obtaining this license will enable the company to extend its products and brands into the regulated Canadian cannabis market and directly to the consumer medical market.
Geyser Brands's integrated production chain and formulation lab develops innovative products using high-quality hemp and CBD for healthy lifestyle brands while its R&D lab produces product formulations designed to enhance bio-availability of hemp and CBD and shelf stability while maintaining all-natural ingredients and ensuring premium quality.
Geyser Brands will continue to seek opportunities to invest into the research and development of unique high-quality proprietary strains and technologies that target specific health-related conditions such as pain and inflammation reduction, insomnia, digestive issues and other commonly known ailments.
Among the brand formulations in Geyser Brand's portfolio are:
- Apothecary all-natural Hemp Terpene Pain Cream with optimal skin permeation
- Prohibition Cold Brew Mocha designed with water soluble hemp molecules
- Apothecary health products created to deliver fast-acting and high bioavailability in a spray formulation
- Baked hemp infused pet products, designed to alleviate anxiety and pain, created with NanoFusion for dosage control
Since 2014, Geyser Brands' CEO and Co-Founder Andreas Thatcher has been a principal at Rhizome Group, an entertainment company focused on building media IP through creative and market development. He previously was a founding partner at Rhizome Capital LLC, a U.S.-based media?investment?company specializing in marketing and distribution financing, and worked in the Investment Banking industry in?London and Toronto. Thatcher holds a master's degree in economics.
CFO Barry McKnight obtained his bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia and is a Chartered Professional Accountant and?Certified Management Accountant registered in British Columbia. McKnight has over 20 years of experience as the principal of Barry D. McKnight Inc. He formerly was also a director of Indigo Sky Capital Corp. and has been the CFO and a director of the Company since 2016 and Corporate?Secretary of the Company since 2017.
Geyser Brands's Co-Founder Brad Kersch brings a strong business background with over 20 years of experience in?successful startups and working?with Fortune 500 companies. He spent his early years in the advertising and?marketing field and went on to form Hyperware, a clothing?company that sold branded clothing to retailers across Canada?before selling to clothing giant Ocean Pacific (OP). Kersch?became the president of Shoreline Studios, Canada's largest and?oldest?studio for film and TV. In 2014 he started Solace Management Group, a hemp product company focused on pet, cosmeceutical, and nutraceutical markets. As of February 2019, Geyser Brands signed a non-binding LOI to acquire Solace Management. Upon completing the proposed Solace acquisition, Geyser Brands intends to launch into the execution phase of its plan — to take its brands global through retail and digital direct-to-consumer experiences, launching its hemp-infused cannabis brands and products in the U.S., European Union, and Asia, and its CBD-infused line of products in jurisdictions where the therapeutic ingredient is legal.
Kuldip Gill, head of Geyser Brands' R&D program, has more than 35 years of experience in the cannabis industry. Gill built the largest manufacturing facility?in the lower mainland in Surrey, British Columbia, complete with R&D, analytical and quality control labs approved by both the FDA and Health Canada. He has to date created over 3,500 formulas, most notably Lakota pain relief gel. Gill's experience and proven track record is evident in the strongly marketable formulations he has developed and sold worldwide.

CloudCommerce (OTCQB: CLWD)
CloudCommerce (OTCQB: CLWD) recently launched its core flagship solution SWARM, an end-to-end data-science and market-behavior solution that employs artificial intelligence (“AI”) to help businesses with audience generation. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/SAnr7.
CloudCommerce (OTCQB: CLWD) is a leading provider of audience-driven business intelligence and marketing solutions. Together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, CloudCommerce delivers invaluable end-to-end business intelligence and marketing solutions through a range of services and capabilities.
SWARM is an end-to-end solution that applies advanced data science, behavioral science, artificial intelligence and market research techniques to deliver powerful audience-driven business intelligence that converts opportunities into business success.
Through marketing, brand perception, customer-relationship management, human-resources management and operational logistics applications, CloudCommerce’s SWARM solution helps businesses determine who to talk to, what to say and how to motivate targeted audiences to take meaningful action.
Marketers have largely taken a blanket approach to communication. The same messages are often sent across an entire customer audience with little regard for how different groups of people communicate, build communities and develop their purchasing habits. When marketers do segment audiences, they use objective selection criteria such as income, geography, education or purchase history to deduce attitudes or intentions.
However, research shows that motivations and feelings are much more accurate at predicting behavior. The challenge for businesses is that these factors are also the hardest to gather from audience data. CloudCommerce provides that audience-intelligent data through SWARM, its proprietary behavioral-science approach to audience creation and communication. Through SWARM, CloudCommerce helps marketers identify consumer motivations and triggers in order to effectively predict and influence actions. When companies influence action, they can change opinions, gather support, motivate purchases and inspire change.
In a fast-developing global business intelligence market estimated to grow from $16.3 billion in 2016 to $34.3 billion by 2022, CloudCommerce stands apart as an innovator and true partner, able to deliver data-driven intelligence and solutions that enable its customers to strengthen their brands, deliver their messages and reach their goals.
THE SWARM—Intelligent Audience Building
The core of the CloudCommerce solution – and what separates CloudCommerce from other audience data companies – is the company’s unique approach to audience building. The concept of “personas” has been around for decades, but CloudCommerce takes that concept to the next level. The SWARM was developed to identify not only who to talk to but also what to say in order to motivate target audiences to take meaningful action. Using CloudCommerce’s proprietary clustering and behavioral analysis techniques, businesses can identify target audiences and deliver messages that are more focused and efficient. CloudCommerce not only helps its client partners find the right people to talk to but also identifies the most powerful message to send.
BUZZ—Behavior-Based Market Research
Market research is evolving. Research techniques developed and used today are more sophisticated and backed by strong data science. Despite these changes, many traditional research firms have failed to innovate: small sample sizes, survey design bias, improper weighting and gut-intuition sampling are just some of the issues that plague the market-research industry. Through BUZZ, CloudCommerce has automated the market research process to provide a level of statistical depth beyond what traditional firms can offer. BUZZ offers businesses the ability to put their finger on the pulse of the marketplace in the moment. Using a wide range of internal and external data sources such as customer data, social media activity, and micro and macro trends, BUZZ deduces attitudes, emotions and opinions.
HIVE—Redefined Geographic Targeting
Conventional geographic audience targeting is outdated. Arbitrary units of location such as counties, cities, DMAs and regions were created centuries ago based on land-rights ownership. Their use in understanding people’s behavior, purchase habits and underlying values is minimal. CloudCommerce has found a much more powerful, efficient and effective way of targeting by clustering people into granular geographic tribes called HIVES. HIVES are defined by attributes such as common language (e.g., colloquialisms), shared experience and narratives (e.g., climate, history), and concentrated demography and biology (e.g., ethnicity, age). Based on the needs of its clients, CloudCommerce can completely redraw the geographic lines based on various Hive selection criteria. Using this exclusive HIVE approach, CloudCommerce clients experience more efficient and effective marketing, make more intelligent business decisions and enjoy more growth.
HONEY—Advanced Reporting and Visualization
Advanced-audience, data-analysis technologies are useless if they don’t produce simple, powerful and actionable business intelligence. HONEY comes with user-friendly reporting and visualization tools to organize and explain all of the advance-data science into a simple-to-understand format for decision makers. HONEY combines the intelligence of client CRM data with third-party consumer data and targeted market research to create a powerful foundation for any audience-intelligence solution.

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI)
Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) was featured today in a publication from Financialnewsmedia.com, examining how consumer demand is a powerful force. It can make or break a product or even an industry… but the increasing consumer appetite for Cannabis – CBD infused products are showing that it can even stabilize the market even in the midst of a temporary downturn in the industry. Also today, the company was highlighted in a publication from Motley Fool, examining how, four weeks from today, laws governing the rollout of derivatives will officially go into effect in Canada. A derivative is an alternative cannabis consumption product that's not already been approved.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF) was highlighted in a publication from Financialnewsmedia.com, examining how the cannabis industry is on a tremendous upswing, with numbers expected to reach $31.4 billion by the year 2021.
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”
Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.
In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.
“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”
The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.
Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.
To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FRA: TH8)
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) ("TransCanna" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced acquisition of all of the outstanding equity interest in Tres Ojos Naturals LLC, doing business as SolDaze, a limited liability company based in Santa Cruz, California.
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FRA: TH8) brings together a rapidly growing portfolio of cannabis and hemp-related brands and services, with a closed-loop ecosystem approach rooted squarely in the company’s ownership of a 196,000-square-foot, vertically integrated facility in California. The company has developed a two-year, four-phase plan aimed at developing proprietary brands and creating a self-contained ecosystem that ensures reliability, consistency, quality and scale.
TransCanna’s cannabis facility in Modesto, California, is strategically located less than a three-hour drive from the majority of all major cities in the state. The tri-level building provides internal control of everything needed for the seed-to-sale cycle, from growing and manufacturing to extraction, bottling, transportation and distribution. The facility, which recently went through an US$8 million renovation, is upgraded with a premium quality HVAC system and highly insulated roof to help reduce power costs, which already are some of the lowest in California.
The company has set 2020 goal for implementation of its full-service software platform, 420 Global, which will interact with every aspect of production flow, business development and the sales process.
Acquisitions slated to be completed in June include Goodfellas Group LLC, a full-service advertising and marketing agency for the U.S. cannabis and hemp industries. Under the deal, TransCanna will also be acquiring Daily Cannabis Goods, a pre-rolled brand with nominal start-up costs and superior SKU velocity with cannabis products available at more than 30 dispensaries throughout California.
The company has moved to acquire organic hemp-infused CBD coconut oil Biovelle (www.Biovelle.com). Biovelle is non-GMO, vegan and gluten free, with coconut sourced from plantations in the Philippines and American grown hemp from farms in Colorado.
TransCanna has also moved to further secure a growing foothold in cannabis edibles via a non-binding letter of intent with Persuasion Brewing Co., located near the company’s flagship facility in Modesto. The goal is to establish a Persuasion Brewing division at the main facility, which will produce a variety of different CBD infusion non-alcoholic beers.
Similarly, the company has recently executed a non-binding LOI with SolDaze (Tres Ojos Naturals, LLC) to gobble up the branding asset package of this California manufacturer of cannabis-infused fruit snacks (www.soldazesnacks.com).
TransCanna’s management team consists of seasoned agriculture and consumer goods-oriented veterans.
Director, CEO and Chairman James Pakulis has 30 years of experience working with public and private entrepreneurial companies in a variety of emerging sectors. He has been on the front lines of the California cannabis industry for nearly a decade. He was CEO and chairman in 2010 of General Cannabis, Inc., which wholly owned the popular Weedmaps brand. Pakulis oversaw the growth of General Cannabis from pre-embryonic stages to over $16 million in revenue in less than two years, reaching a market cap of approximately $480 million.
Director and President Arni Johannson brings over 30 years of investing experience in the Canadian capital markets. He has built and or funded over 50 startups from around the world. He is president of Canadian Nexus Ventures and has been instrumental in providing guidance to pre- and post IPO companies, as well as guidance and oversight for corporate governance.
Stephen Giblin, board director, is an accomplished leader in the global hospitality, technology and real estate industries with a demonstrated track record of value creation. Juan Pablo Flores, independent director, is an attorney with more than 25 years of legal experience with a strong background in municipal, government, real estate, corporate and general civil law litigation.
The company’s strategic advisors include individuals with extensive experience in branding, marketing, sales, distribution, production and supply chain management.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF)
Fully integrated, surface-oil sands mining oil company Petroteq Energy (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is continuing to exhibit the potential of its proprietary technology through licensing and lab testing while performing maintenance and upgrades at its Utah production site. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/3c7tV.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: 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 sands exploration and production on mineral leases in Vernal, Utah, and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
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 2,500-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 Clean Oil Recovery Technology (CORT) System.
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 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. 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 Chairman 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 Inc. (PQEFF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.2623, off by 2.3091%, on 280,916 volume with 76 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 242,893 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.112099997/$1.07720005.
