Alkane Resources Limited is a gold production company with a multi-commodity exploration and development portfolio. It is currently focused on gold exploration, production, as well as investment. Alkane has projects and operations located in the Central West of New South Wales, eastern Australia. In addition, the Company is a gold producer via its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tomingley Gold Operations (TGO). Alkane Resources has its head office in Burswood, Australia. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets’ OTCQX.
Alkane Resources also maintains offices and operations in eastern Australia. This includes Narromine Shire – home of its producing gold mine, Tomingley Gold Operations and its highly prospective tenement package. Furthermore, Alkane has an office in Parkes Shire – home of its Peak Hill Gold Mine and further exploration tenements. Additionally, the Company has an office in Dubbo Regional Council LGA – home of its world-class, construction-ready, multi-commodity Dubbo Project.
Alkane Resources’ most significant project is the Dubbo Project, owned by Alkane subsidiary, Australian Strategic Materials (ASM), which stands to become a strategic and significant international producer of zirconium, certain rare earths, hafnium and niobium. The Dubbo Project has a potential mine life of 70-plus years. It is the most advanced project of its kind outside China.
The gold operations at Tomingley are approximately 50 kilometers south-west of Dubbo in Central West NSW. Operated by Tomingley Gold Operations (TGO), the wholly-owned subsidiary of Alkane Resources, the gold processing plant was commissioned on time and on budget in January of 2014. It has been operating at the design capacity of 1Mtpa from early 2014.
Mining at Tomingley is based on four gold deposits (Wyoming One, Wyoming Three, Caloma and Caloma Two.) Open cut mining occurred on the deposits until early in 2019 producing 60,000 to 80,000 ounces of gold per year. Underground mining began in early 2019 from the bottom of the Wyoming One pit.
Alkane Resources has made a discovery of significant porphyry gold-copper mineralization at its Boda prospect, within the Northern Molong Porphyry Project (NMPP) in central west NSW. The NMPP incorporates three exploration licences, encompassing an area of 110 km2 of the northern Molong Volcanic Belt. The area is considered highly prospective for large porphyry gold-copper mineralization, as demonstrated by the world class Cadia Valley porphyry district, situated to the south of the volcanic belt.
In September, Alkane Resources reported drill results from its Tomingley Gold Project in central west NSW, showing further significant gold intercepts within the “Tomingley Gold Corridor”. Drilling is taking place to seek to define an initial inferred resource at the San Antonio and Roswell prospects with a nominal 40 meter by 40 meter drill hole spacing to a 200 meter vertical depth. Assay results have now been received for the next 5,000 meters of drilling, with intercepts ranging between 2.33 g/t and 26.1 g/t.
The resource definition drilling is part of a wide-ranging regional exploration program centered on the immediate mine area to the south of Tomingley with the goal of providing additional ore feed, either at surface or underground, in the future to Tomingley Gold Operations (TGO).

OTC Markets, Research and Markets, Emerging Growth, Simply Wall St, Last10k, Small Cap Network, Market Screener, InvestorsHub, Stockopedia, Dividend Investor, Wallet Investor, Street Insider, PR Newswire, 4-Traders, GuruFocus, MarketBeat, Stockhouse, and Morningstar reported previously on Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. operates as a drug discovery company. It uses biomarker technology to identify enzyme targets related with serious common diseases and designs novel compounds to attack those targets. Its product pipeline is primarily centered on inhibitors of protein phosphatases, used alone and in combination with cytotoxic agents and/or X-ray and immune checkpoint blockers. A clinical-stage pharmaceutical enterprise, Lixte Biotechnology Holdings has its head office in East Setauket, New York. The Company’s shares trade on the OTCQB.
Lixte Biotechnology has identified molecular signaling pathways altered in disease states. It has also designed compounds that can safely target them in animal models. The Company’s present drug portfolio includes inhibitors of serine/threonine protein phosphatases critical to cell division and DNA damage repair and inhibitors of protein deacetylases, which regulate pathways of gene expression and protein degradation.
The phosphatase inhibitors enhance the effectiveness of cytotoxic anti-cancer drugs in general and radiation therapy. This makes them potentially useful for the treatment of numerous cancers in combination with existing standard chemotherapy regimens and with the developing targeted cytotoxic therapies of personalized cancer medicine.
Furthermore, in a pre-clinical study done with scientists under collaborative research and development agreements at the National Institutes of Health, Lixte Biotechnology’s lead compound, LB-100, enhanced the antitumor activity of a major immune checkpoint inhibitor. Therefore, this raises the possibility that in addition to improving the efficacy of standard cytotoxic anti-cancer drugs, Lixte’s phosphatase inhibitors may potentiate immunotherapy regimens (Ho 2017).
This past July, Lixte Biotechnology announced that the first patient was enrolled in its Phase 1b/2 study of the safety and therapeutic benefit of the Company’s lead clinical compound, LB-100, in patients with low and intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who have failed or are intolerant of standard treatment (NCT03886662).
Dr. John S. Kovach, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Lixte Biotechnology, said “Because there are no standard treatments for patients with refractory MDS, from a statistical standpoint as few as 7 objective responses among the first 47 patients would be considered encouraging and justify proceeding to a Phase 3 trial. Of course, we hope that in the current trial LB-100 will be associated with even higher rates of objective benefit to these patients allowing us to move to Phase 3 before reaching 47 entries.”
Lixte Biotechnology has signed a clinical trial agreement with the Spanish Sarcoma Group (Grupo Español de Investigación en Sarcomas, GEIS) to support a Phase 1b/randomized Phase 2 study of doxorubicin, the international standard for initial treatment of advanced soft tissue sarcomas (ASTS), in comparison to doxorubicin plus LB-100.

A gold exploration company, Contact Gold Corp. concentrates on leveraging its properties, people, technology and capital to produce district scale gold discoveries in the State of Nevada. The Company's land position consists of 275 km2 of target rich mineral tenure hosting many known gold occurrences, ranging from early- to advanced-exploration and resource definition stage.

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI)
Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) was highlighted in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how, globally, industrial hemp is used in more than 250,000 products, and interest in this versatile plant doesn’t seem to have peaked just yet. For the first time, the World Ag Expo is going to feature a hemp pavilion where there will be space for exhibitors and a stage for seminars during the expo due to take place in February 2020.
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.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC)
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC), a gas, liquids and biomass extractor and refiner, recently reported financial results for the second quarter and six-month period ending June 30, 2019 (http://cnw.fm/t2btS). To view the full article, visit http://cnw.fm/8kJWk.
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.
Advanced Extraction Technologies
For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:
- LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
- PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
- Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.
Delta Purification® Technology
HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:
- Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
- Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
- Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.
Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts
HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.
Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.
Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.
The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.
Sales and Offtake Agreements
HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.
HTC has focused the Canadian implementation of its BOOM (build, own, operate and maintain) extraction tolling strategy on a location near Regina, Saskatchewan. HTC is currently constructing a 19,000-square-foot GMP Euro compliant extraction tolling facility on six acres of land that will include biomass processing, extraction, implementation of DeltaSolv™ technologies and Delta Purification® systems, distillate and refining equipment, laboratory quality control and testing operations, and on-site office and admin facilities.
Chairman, CEO and Director Lionel Kambeitz is a recognized professional in business development and international business relations. He has played a founding role in many other Canadian and U.S.-based companies. Kambeitz has executive experience in a variety of industries including energy, agriculture, food production engineering, and manufacturing.
Jeff Allison, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Director, has over 20 years of experience in corporate finance and business development. Prior to joining HTC in 2005, Allison as Vice President assisted with the founding and setup of CUCORP Financial Services in Saskatchewan.
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.385, up 35.0877%, on 161,300 volume with 26 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 200,115 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.079999998/$1.24.

Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR)
Consumer wellness brand cultivator Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) is rapidly building its revenue-generating operation thanks to the September completion of acquisition plans for hemp oil product manufacturer Solace Management, a company whose portfolio includes 57 SKUs of consumer wellness goods and pet care products (http://cnw.fm/f9IK2).
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.

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.

Skyline Medical’s patented, FDA-cleared STREAMWAY System is the first true, direct-to-drain fluid disposal system designed specifically for medical applications such as radiology, endoscopy, urology and cystoscopy procedures. The STREAMWAY system is changing the way healthcare facilities collect and dispose of potentially infectious waste fluid by connecting directly to a facility’s plumbing system to automate the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluids.
The STREAMWAY minimizes human intervention for better safety and improves compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines. The STREAMWAY eliminates canisters, carts and evacuated bottles, which reduces overhead costs and minimizes environmental impact by helping to eliminate the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills annually in the United Sates.
Skyline has achieved sales in five of the seven continents through both direct sales and distributor partners.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF)
Petroteq Energy (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF), a fully integrated, surface oil sands clean recovery mining oil company with proprietary technology, recently secured additional funding and made considerable headway toward its Asphalt Ridge heavy-oil extraction facility expansion plans. To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/GzwD7.
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 Wednesday's trading session at $0.1747, off by 12.65%, on 410,017 volume with 88 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 235,796 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.112099997/$1.00.

Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR)
Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR) was featured today in a publication from CBDWire, examining how the popularity of CBD is growing constantly, with market forecasts indicating that the global CBD industry is likely to reach $22 billion by 2022 (http://cnw.fm/1nijW). One of the main reasons CBD’s popularity has exploded as of late is related to its multiple health benefits, according to clinical research. Various studies carried out over the years indicate that CBD has anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and cognitive-boosting qualities. Also today, the company was highlighted in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how, globally, industrial hemp is used in more than 250,000 products, and interest in this versatile plant doesn’t seem to have peaked just yet. For the first time, the World Ag Expo is going to feature a hemp pavilion where there will be space for exhibitors and a stage for seminars during the expo due to take place in February 2020.
Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR) is an early-stage research and development company bringing modern healthy living solutions to a multi-billion-dollar market. Cutting-edge technologies within the nutraceuticals, food and drug, and environmental purification sectors are creating a new kind of world culture – one where consumers are demanding access to products that promote health and stave off potential health dangers.
Neutra is concentrating on developing into a vertically integrated company able to cultivate, manufacture and distribute hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) products. Hemp-based CBD consumer products generated sales of up to $390 million in 2018 with projections pointing to a $3 billion market by 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.
Neutra’s new broadened scope, which includes the commercialization of newer, more effective products, aims to capitalize on this worldwide boom. Our company is seeking new and exciting opportunities that can accelerate Neutra’s mission to bring these products to a wider demographic. Our work reflects a renewed dedication to supporting a better body, environment and life for people around the globe.
- Vivis – Neutra is expanding its market presence in the rapidly growing hemp-derived CBD market with a letter of intent to acquire Vivis, an emerging retail brand of hemp-based health and nutritional products. Vivis’ hemp-derived CBD products are third-party certified as contaminant-free and of consistent quality and potency. Consumers are increasingly looking for this certification when they buy hemp-based CBD products. With Vivis as the new retail face of Neutra, the company is expecting greater interest in its expanding portfolio of branded products moving to market.
- J3 Holdings – The signing of a letter of intent to acquire J3 Holdings includes the company’s land and warehouse, as well as a license to cultivate hemp and refine it into usable forms. Neutra has concentrated its early efforts developing business networks and on developing hemp-based CBD products, including supplements and creams. The latest move will enable the company to grow its own hemp supply, giving it more control over the quality of its ingredients.
- Surface to Air Solutions is the North American distributor of a patent-pending, water-based solution known as Purteq, a green technology that works similar to photosynthesis.
- ZeroBlast uses a durable, non-toxic, anti-microbial solution to eliminate all contaminates and kill germs on contact for a period of up to 90 days.
Neutra president and CEO Sydney Jim provides strong executive leadership, a network of business contacts and experience implementing solid corporate strategy. Jim has a proven track record of adding value for public company shareholders. He founded Global Visionary Investments where operational support is provided to seven different companies and their subsidiaries. Jim was also the CEO of First Titan Energy, a microcap public company where he was responsible for restructuring the corporate structure, deal sourcing, and leading the company in mergers and acquisitions.
