(PKTX), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
ProtoKinetix, Inc. is a molecular biotechnology company based in Marietta, Ohio. The Company has developed and patented a family of hyper stable, potent glycopeptides (Anti-Aging GlycoPeptide - AAGP™) that enhance engraftment and protection of transplanted cells utilized in regenerative medicine. ProtoKinetix lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
Due to the anti-inflammatory effect of AAGP™ molecules, ProtoKinetix is now targeting the direct treatment of diseases that have a major inflammatory component. The Company’s, AAGP™, is an antifreeze glycopeptide. It imitates a naturally occurring glycoprotein found in Arctic fish. Its AAGP™ molecule is helping to substantially improve the efficacy of Cell Transplant Treatments for diabetes. ProtoKinetix has extensive patent protection for its portfolio of anti-aging glycopeptides.
The Company’s anti-aging glycopeptide is trademarked AAGP™. This is a small (580.96 Daltons), stable, synthetic replica of the larger (>2,600 Daltons), less stable AFGP, which has been found to have protective properties in nature. The small size of AAGP™ enables it to penetrate cells. It permits it to pass through cell and capillary junctions in vivo.
Moreover, its bioactivity at a range of pHs (5.3-10.3) and temperatures (-196°C to 22°C) and efficiency at concentrations (1mg/ml) is well below its toxic dose (50mg/ml). This makes it a candidate to enter the next stages of translational research.

Timberline Resources Corp. (TLRS)
Zacks, MarketWatch, Amigo Bulls, InvestorsHub, Real Investment Advice, Market Screener, Marketbeat, and Gold Investment Letter reported earlier on Timberline Resources Corp. (TLRS), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Timberline Resources Corp. is a gold exploration and development company. Its operational focus is the State of Nevada. The Company’s flagship Talapoosa Project is a partially permitted, open-pit, heap leach gold project with low capital and operating costs and robust economics. Additionally, its exploration efforts have been focused on its 23 square-mile Eureka land package. This is one of the largest remaining undeveloped gold properties in Nevada. Timberline Resources is headquartered in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
The Company is refocusing its exploration efforts on advancing the Windfall and Lookout Mountain projects at its Eureka property. This is simultaneous with relinquishing its option to acquire the Talapoosa project. Regarding the Eureka land package, it includes Timberline’s Lookout Mountain project and a pipeline of earlier-stage projects that feature past gold production, historic gold estimates, and/or drill-indicated gold mineralization. Eureka is on the south end of Nevada’s Battle Mountain/Eureka Trend.
Timberline Resources continues to advance its Lookout Mountain and Windfall project areas at Eureka. The Company purchased a large block of patented and unpatented mining claims in 2012. These comprise primarily the entire Seven Troughs gold mining district near Lovelock in Pershing County, Nevada. The purchased property package covers 4,100 acres. It consists of 64 patented and 238 unpatented lode mining claims, all which are under a long-term lease agreement, along with 162 additional unpatented lode mining claims.
Timberline Resources announced this past August that it closed on the acquisition of ownership interests in two Nevada gold-copper mineral properties in the Battle Mountain mining district in Nevada from Americas Gold Exploration, Inc. (AGEI). This acquisition includes the right to earn into existing Joint Venture agreements with McEwen Mining, Inc. at the Elder Creek Project (Elder Creek Joint Venture), and with Lac Minerals (USA) LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation (LAC) at the Paiute Project (Paiute Joint Venture).
Earlier this month, Timberline Resources announced that a detailed gravity survey and analysis of historic geophysical survey data identified untested targets for high-grade, ''Carlin-style'' gold mineralization at the Lookout Mountain Project within its 23-square mile (60 km2) Eureka property. The gravity, CSAMT, induced polarization (IP), and magnetic data show distinct geophysical signatures over earlier identified high-grade gold mineralization on the property. These geophysical signatures were subsequently used to identify possible extensions of the mineralized zones and new targets for drilling.
Last week, Timberline Resources provided an update on drilling at the Elder Creek porphyry copper-gold project in the Battle Mountain Mining District of Nevada. The drilling program started in mid-September and is now finished.
Mr. Steven Osterberg, Timberline Resources’ President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are impressed with several hundred feet of drill core exhibiting extensive stock-work veining, intense mineral alteration, and visible iron, copper, and molybdenum sulfide mineralization. The drilling, combined with surface mapping and geophysical surveys, confirms that Elder Creek is a very large mineralized porphyry system. We look forward to the analytical results and additional drill testing."

Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO)
Stock Beast, SmallCap Network, and Promotion Stock Secrets reported previously on Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Vitality Biopharma, Inc.’s commitment is to the development of cannabinoid prodrug pharmaceuticals, and to unlocking the power of cannabinoids for the treatment of serious neurological and inflammatory disorders. Since 2012, it has developed a unique capability to produce molecules by way of glycosylation, a form of enzymatic biosynthesis that was originally developed to improve the taste of stevia. The platform is well suited for the discovery of new pharmaceutical products. Vitality Biopharma is based in Los Angeles, California.
The Company successfully modified cannabidiol (CBD) late in 2015, which is not psychoactive. In ongoing work it has created a novel class of pharmaceuticals called cannabosides. Cannabosides, upon ingestion, can enable the selective delivery of THC and cannabidiol (CBD) to the gastrointestinal tract.
Site-specific delivery could enable oral drug formulations of cannabinoids to provide therapeutic benefits. This is while lessening or avoiding the systemic delivery of THC into the bloodstream.
Vitality Biopharma can biosynthesize cannabinoid glycosides (cannabosides) through enzyme biosynthesis. The Company is one of only a very few groups globally who know how to produce and work with the enzymes that perform glycosylation. It has been centered on it because the same enzymes are used to modify the taste of stevia (steviol glycosides).
In October of 2017, Vitality Biopharma announced the achievement of a biosynthesis breakthrough. It developed a proprietary biosynthesis technology, which can modify cannabinoids to create pharmaceutical prodrugs that have no psychoactivity and that can provide targeted disease treatment. The process involves small molecule glycosylation, where sugar molecules are attached to cannabinoids, creating new compounds called cannabinoid glycosides, or cannabosides.
Vitality Biopharma has introduced its lead cannabinoid drug formulation VITA-100 as a non-psychoactive prodrug of THC. It is focusing initial clinical development efforts on VITA-100, a proprietary THC cannabinoid drug formulation. The Company’s plan is to complete a first-in-man clinical study in the first half of 2018.
The treatment indications it plans to evaluate in Phase 2 trials include inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome, and narcotic bowel syndrome (a severe form of opiate-induced abdominal pain). Last month, Vitality Biopharma announced the pending establishment of a wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, Vitality Genetics, Ltd. This subsidiary will concentrate on and enable the performance of a broad array of cannabinoid genetics research and development programs.
Vitality Biopharma is now planning limited operations in Canada. This is to benefit from Health Canada regulations concerning medical cannabis and the federal commitment to nationwide approval for adult use of cannabis.
This month, Vitality Biopharma announced the discovery of new antimicrobial activity of cannabinoids and its application for treatment of C. difficile-associated diarrhea and colitis. In experiments executed according to guidance by the Clinical Laboratory and Standards Institute (CLSI), the Company determined that cannabinoids (including THC) are effective antibiotics for C. diff, VRE, and an assortment of additional pathogens.
Vitality Biopharma filed a non-provisional international patent application on May 9, 2018, pursuant to the Patent Cooperation Treaty (Appl. No. PCT/US2018/031727) titled “Antimicrobial Compositions Comprising Cannabinoids and Methods of Using the Same.”
Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.685, up 3.37%, on 239,842 volume with 297 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 211,852 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.05/$2.37.

Mentor Capital transferred to the cannabis space from front-line cancer investments.
Mentor Capital takes a major position in the diverse members of its portfolio of participating companies. Nonetheless, it leaves operating control in the hands of the cannabis company founders.
Mentor participates in the legal recreational marijuana market. However, its favored focus is medical. The Company looks to facilitate the application of cannabis to cancer wasting, calming seizures, Parkinson’s disease, reducing ocular pressures from glaucoma, in addition to blunting chronic pain.
Mentor Capital announced this past February that it extended into the Colorado cannabis market with its new investment in Pueblo West Organics, LLC. Mentor Capital stated it would be pleased to make a series of cannabis focused investments with cannabis veteran and Pueblo Founder, Pat Leonard.
Mentor Capital has set up Mentor Partner II, LLC as a channel for this purpose. The initial investment is about $400,000 lease of a system for supercritical extraction.

EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF)
Dividend Investor, Marketwired, Streetwise Reports MarketWatch, Stockhouse, GuruFocus, 4-Traders, OTC Markets, Barchart, Investopedia, Investors Hub, and Stock Market Revolution reported on EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Established in 2016, EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. is a technology enterprise and near-term gold producer. The Company engages in the development and commercialization of environmentally-friendly formulas and technologies for the treatment of materials in the mining and E-Waste sectors. Its aim is to become a foremost gold producer through the “Urban-Mining” of end-of-life electronics and be a major player in the extraction of precious metals in the traditional mining space. EnviroLeach Technologies has its headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Utilizing its proprietary non-cyanide, non-acid based process, EnviroLeach extracts precious and base metals from ores, concentrates, and E-Waste using only Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved additives. The Company developed an inventive, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to cyanide and strong-acid based processes currently used for the extraction of precious metals from mineral ores, concentrates and E-Waste.
The process is alike to the standard cyanide vat leaching circuits used today. However, it is much safer and simpler. The patent-pending EnviroLeach formula consists of combining five non-toxic, FDA approved dry ingredients with ambient temperature water.
EnviroLeach Technologies and Mineworx Technologies successfully advanced their proven chemical formulas and mechanical processes last year with several additional proprietary and patent-pending breakthroughs. The new discoveries include significant enhancements to the proven EnviroLeach E-Waste process concerning improved leach kinetics, improved recoveries, metal complex stability, element selectivity, metal precipitation and the reusability of the primary solution.
The two companies also completed a series of successful pilot scale tests throughout 2017. They completed the design, engineering and construction of the first production scale, 10 tonne per day E-Waste processing plant, which was installed on-schedule and on-budget at the Memphis, Tennessee facility.
The EnviroLeach reagent is well suited for the leaching of gold in an agitated or vat leach type process. This includes the treatment of whole ores, gravity concentrates, flotation concentrates, as well as E-Waste. This segment of the market represents most of the global gold produced.
The Company states that the EnviroLeach process could be an effective alternative for many potentially economic gold deposits that are unable to secure permitting due to cyanide restrictions.
EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.80, up 3.65%, on 100 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 22,693 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.4783/$1.855.

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG)
NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled “Rising Global Economic Tide Lifts Yacht and Boat Firms High,” featuring Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (OTC: VMHG). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/V3cnh. To read the full editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/1MTjc.
Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG) is a world-class yacht sales, brokerage and consulting firm with a sprawling inventory of new and used boats, financing, insurance, documentation and recreational marine accessories. Located in Miami, Florida – the “yacht capital of the world” – Victory Marine has over 20 years of experience in an industry hailed as “an American pastime and economic engine” by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (“NMMA”).
According to the NMMA, marine sales reached $39 billion in 2017. To capture its share of this market, Victory Marine has established partnerships with several selective manufacturers and is pursuing opportunities for vertical growth. While the company’s near-term focus is on expansion of its inventory and sales team, its longer-term plans reflect the current state of the broader yacht industry.
Marine sales are at a 10-year high, and though yacht manufacturers are operating at full capacity, delivery of some products can take longer than 18 months. As a result, Victory Marine is taking steps to establish its own pipeline. Management is currently in negotiations with several yacht manufacturers to build the company its own unique, private-label design, which would enable Victory Marine to quickly deliver a superior product to its clients.
Demand for recreational boat trailers is also on the rise, with growth reported for nearly all powerboat segments. Florida continues to ride the top of that crest with sales of powerboats, trailers, and accessories up 10 percent in 2017 to $2.9 billion, followed by Texas ($1.7 billion) and Michigan ($982 million).
Victory Marine’s wholly owned Excalibur Trailers USA subsidiary is set to take advantage of this market, and is approved by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) to build custom marine aluminum trailers for recreational boats, as well as for commercial boat transport. Excalibur Trailers USA has filed the necessary paperwork to trademark its brand name and logo and is seeking a suitable manufacturing facility in South Florida for production of powerboat, sailboat, catamaran, powerboat and Jet Ski trailers.
Leading Victory Marine to capture its share of the market is company CEO Orlando Hernandez, whose experience in the marine industry includes negotiation, business planning, investor relations, operations management and sales. He is joined by veteran yacht broker Gary Beaver, who has more than 20 years of successful yacht sales and industry experience. Beaver brings to Victory Marine his portfolio of approximately 25 vessel listings, valued in excess of $10 million.
Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG), closed the day's trading session at $0.0999, up 11.12%, on 37,360 volume with 12 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 52,805 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0655/$0.97.

The larger corporate locale provides space for a growing customer service department, product fulfillment, opportunity and training rooms, as well as a video production suite.
“The opportunity to expand to the rest of this new building over the course of the next six to 12 months ensures we won’t have to move again anytime soon,” Sharing Services Inc. Chairman Robert Oblon said. “We are on track for very significant growth here in the U.S., as well as upcoming international expansion, so this move is in preparation for what’s in front of us.”
The company recently signed a joint venture agreement with Health Wealth & Happiness Limited (“HWH”) to expand its “Elepreneurs” brand and market its products throughout Asia.

“The enthusiasm of our attendees and the early success that we are experiencing is incredible considering our growth has been 100 percent organic, with almost no marketing from the company,” Oblon said. “I’m speechless by the dedication of our Elepreneur leaders and their entire teams, as they share our incredible line of products that have helped so many people.”
Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.
The law firm of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP has been retained as outside corporate counsel for all general business matters. The Dallas-based law firm will represent Sharing Services, Inc., and its subsidiaries as the company utilizes the direct selling channel for a significant component of its overall growth strategy.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, TGOD Acquisition Corporation ("SpinCo"), are pleased to announce that they have entered into a definitive arrangement agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") pursuant to which the Company will, subject to the terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement, effect the previously announced spin-off transaction (the "Spin-Off") whereby TGOD will distribute to TGOD shareholders (the "Distribution") unit purchase warrants of SpinCo (the "SpinCo Unit Warrants") by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement").
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.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSXV: SLL) (OTCQX: STLHF) (FRA: S5L), is pleased to announce that the Company has completed the construction of the prototype pilot plant for its proprietary selective crystallisation process, and is currently commissioning the plant for operation. The pilot prototype has been designed and fabricated in partnership with Saltworks Technologies Inc. and will be initially operated at their facility in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.
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.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
A growing market is supporting a wave of acquisitions and cross-company investments in the cannabis industry. One of the companies making a pick-and-shovel play is Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD), which is expanding its position in cultivation supplies through acquisitions and marketing agreements.
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. He is an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting and profit and loss management.
Sugarmade specializes in growing and acquiring innovative brands to maximize value for company employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Sugarmade believes its future is very bright as the company expands operations within the cultivation sector and rapidly increases its revenue base.
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD), closed the day's trading session at $0.1181, up 2.70%, on 1,894,921 volume with 205 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2,305,023 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0309/$0.43.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) was highlighted today in a report examining a new opinion poll in North Dakota suggesting that those in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana will take the day when the matter is voted upon during the midterm polls next month. This ballot measure comes after the state legalized medical marijuana two years ago and implementation is set to start next year.
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), VIVO has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.
“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” VIVO CEO Barry Fishman said.
VIVO owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.
VIVO has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with VIVO’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.
This global growth potential is illustrated by VIVO’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting VIVO’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.
VIVO’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with VIVO’s philosophy of quality and innovation.
VIVO’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.
Notably, VIVO also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.
With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, VIVO is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF), closed the day's trading session at $0.81, up 1.94%, on 260,363 volume with 239 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 594,890 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.682/$3.293.

CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY)
Biotechnology company CytoDyn Inc. (OTCQB: CYDY) is focused on providing real hope and help to the millions of people infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and those suffering from several devastating forms of cancer. The company’s lead product candidate, PRO 140 (leronlimab), is in advanced stages of clinical development as a therapy for HIV/AIDS, and plans to expand investigations with PRO 140 into cancer are underway. Nader Pourhassan, Ph.D., president and CEO of CytoDyn, updated shareholders during a recent conference call that was highlighted in a corporate summary from leading independent small cap media portal EmergingGrowth.com (http://nnw.fm/Lm4Xb).
CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY) is a biotechnology company focused on the clinical development and potential commercialization of a new class of HIV/AIDS therapeutics or viral-entry inhibitors intended to protect healthy cells from viral infection. The company’s pipeline includes its lead product, PRO 140 for multiple indications among which are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), colon cancer, and multiple sclerosis (MS), each in various stages of development. CytoDyn first approval is focused on HIV indications for two different HIV populations.
PRO 140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed at CCR5, a molecular portal that HIV uses to enter T-cells. PRO 140 works by blocking the predominant HIV (R5) subtype entry into T-cells by masking this required co-receptor, CCR5.
CytoDyn has completed one pivotal phase 3 clinical trials of PRO 140 use in combination with current drugs for population that has limited treatment options. PRO 140 is also currently in another phase 3 (investigative trial) for a second approval for another HIV population. HIV continues to be a major global public health issue. There is no cure for the disease that has claimed more than 35 million lives to date, according to the World Health Organization (“WHO”). In 2017, 940,000 people around the world died from HIV-related causes. There were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 with 1.8 million people becoming newly infected during that same year. The WHO estimates there were 21.7 million people globally receiving antiretroviral therapy (“ART”) in 2017.
HIV targets the immune system and weakens the body’s defense systems against infections and some types of cancer. As the virus destroys and impairs the function of immune cells, infected individuals gradually become immunodeficient which results in increased susceptibility to a wide range of infections, cancers and other diseases that people with healthy immune systems can fight off. The most advanced stage of HIV infection is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which can take from 2 to 15 years to develop depending on the individual.
PRO 140 functions by blocking the HIV co-receptor CCR5, a molecular portal HIV uses to enter T-cells, thus preventing the HIV virus from entering the cell. CCR5 is a protein located on the surface of white blood cells that normally serves as a receptor for chemicals that attract immune cells to the site of inflammation. Clinical trials to date indicate PRO 140 does not interfere with these normal CCR5 functions. Results from phase 1 and phase 2 human clinical trials have shown PRO 140 significantly reduces viral burden in people infected with HIV. Importantly, in a recent phase 2b clinical trial, PRO 140 demonstrated it can allow a subset of R5 strain of HIV population to replace their current HIV regimen (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy or “HAART.”) by a simple sub-cutaneous self-injectable dose of PRO 140 which is administered once a week. Some of those patients have received PRO 140 as their only therapy for almost four years.
The PRO 140 antibody appears to be a powerful antiviral agent with hardly any side effects, toxicity. More than 500 patients have used PRO 140 in clinical trial and no resistance has ever been developed in any patients including patients in monotherapy of PRO 140 for almost four years.
PRO 140, which is taken as an easy-to-use, weekly, subcutaneous self-administered dose, has almost no side effects or toxicity with no report of any serious adverse event related to PRO 140 in more than 500 patients in eight different clinical trial.
As we indicated earlier patients given PRO 140 showed no drug resistance on monotherapy for some almost four years while 76% of HAART patients developed a resistance to some portion of the lifetime drug regimen. Patient compliance with HAART is also the main reason why only 35% of HIV patients in US reporting complete viral load (VL) suppression which is VL<50 cp/mL.
In addition to its research into the powerful potential of PRO 140 for use in HIV patients, CytoDyn is pursuing PRO 140 as a therapeutic anti-viral agent in other non-HIV indications that could benefit from PRO 140’s ability to block CCR5. These immunologic indications include new reactions to cancer, transplantation rejection, autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation such as Multiple Sclerosis. The company sees the significant potential for multiple pipeline opportunities for PRO 140.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designated PRO 140 as a “fast track” product for HIV and granted Orphan Drug Designation to it for the prevention of GvHD in transplant patients. CytoDyn has initiated its first clinical trial with PRO 140 in an immunological indication for GvHD in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who are undergoing bone marrow stem cell transplantation. The company is also investigating PRO 140 in animal models of cancer progression and autoimmunity with positive results and has published its animal study results in GvHD in peer-reviewed journal.
CytoDyn president and CEO Nader Z. Pourhassan, Ph.D. joined the company in 2008 and is credited for purchasing PRO 140 from Progenics in 2012 and has taken a new path to approval for the product. He is the co-inventor of monotherapy path for PRO 140. He has taken PRO 140 development from phase 2 to Completed successful phase 3 in about four years. He now has more than 10 years of drug development experience and has overseen the rapid clinical development of PRO 140 as a therapy for HIV into two phase 3 for two different indications. He also initiated PRO 140 first immunological indication in GvHD (currently in phase 2). He is also involved in preclinical and clinical development of PRO 140 in additional immunological indications.?Dr. Pourhassan, who has more than 20 years of business development experience, has led CytoDyn’s capital market activities since joining the company in 2008. He received his Bachelor of Science from Utah State University, Master of Science from Brigham Young University, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah and is the author of three books.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.
The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.
The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT)
The battle against breast cancer is taking a technological turn amid an increasing drive to develop therapies that use the body’s own immune system to destroy life-threatening cancer cells. BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTCQB: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT) is on the front line of the battle and is currently testing its immuno-oncology biotechnology in phase I and IIa trials involving advanced-stage breast cancer patients.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), based in Berkeley, CA, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of targeted immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer.
BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.
The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.
BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.
BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.
Breast Cancer Statistics
The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.
Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.
The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (BCTXF), closed the day's trading session at $0.083, off by 2.35%, on 47,000 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 15,686 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.068/$0.139.

To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.
Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.
“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”
Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.
Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.
Terry Walker, P.Geol., vice president of exploration and chief geologist, is a highly experienced geologist. He has spent over 25 years in Chile’s mining industry and is well connected throughout the sector. Walker is co-founder of GeoServicios Piedra Dorada, an exploration and development services company focused on Latin America. He is a Qualified Person for the North American and Australian stock exchanges.
Lithium Chile is well funded and driven by a top-tier team with more than 100 years of combined experience in financing, mining exploration and development in the natural resources sector.
