Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO)
SmallCap Network, Stock Beast, and Promotion Stock Secrets reported earlier on Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Vitality Biopharma, Inc.’s dedication 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, the Company has developed a unique capability to produce molecules through 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 has its corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California.
Late in 2015, the Company successfully modified cannabidiol (CBD), which is not psychoactive, and in continuing work has created a novel class of pharmaceuticals named 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 reducing or avoiding the systemic delivery of THC into the bloodstream.
Vitality Biopharma completed preclinical pharmacokinetics studies with its proprietary THC glycosides to analyze their bioavailability. It has confirmed that large concentrations can be delivered orally without significant transit of THC to the brain, enabling their formulation within pharmaceuticals where drug psychoactivity will be reduced or eliminated.
The Company can biosynthesize cannabinoid glycosides (cannabosides) by way of enzyme biosynthesis. Vitality Bippharma is one of only a very few groups around the world who know how to produce and work with the enzymes that perform glycosylation. It has been focused on it because the same enzymes are used to modify the taste of stevia (steviol glycosides).
The Company has obtained positive results demonstrating antimicrobial activity of cannabinoids. It filed for patent protection on the use of cannabinoid compounds for the treatment of microbes. This includes Clostridium difficile and other "superbug" pathogens.
Vitality Biopharma announced in October 2017 the achievement of a biosynthesis breakthrough. It has developed a proprietary biosynthesis technology that 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 named cannabinoid glycosides, or cannabosides.
Vitality Biopharma has introduced its lead cannabinoid drug formulation VITA-100 as a non-psychoactive prodrug of THC. The Company is focusing initial clinical development efforts on VITA-100, a proprietary THC cannabinoid drug formulation. Its plan is to complete a first-in-man clinical study in the first half of this year.
The treatment indications Vitality Biopharma 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).
Mr. Robert Brooke, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Vitality Biopharma, said, “As independent clinical studies are demonstrating the therapeutic effects of THC, we are well positioned with our VITA-100 gut-restricted prodrug formulation.”
Vitality Biopharma submitted an orphan drug designation request for VITA-100 to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). With approval, VITA-100 would be designated as an orphan drug for the treatment of pediatric ulcerative colitis (UC), a form of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.
Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.67, up 1.83%, on 58,252 volume with 176 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 219,780 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.05/$2.37.

BioCorRx is based in Anaheim, California.
The BioCorRx® Recovery Program comprises two main components. The first component consists of an outpatient implant procedure performed by a licensed physician. The implant delivers the non-addictive medicine, naltrexone, an opioid antagonist, which can substantially decrease physical cravings for alcohol and opioids.
The second component is a one-on-one proprietary counseling program. It is particularly tailored for the treatment of alcoholism and other substance abuse addictions for those receiving long-term naltrexone treatments.
In addition, the Company has expanded the support structure to include 12 months of a peer-support system using trained recovery specialists. Moreover, BioCorRx is developing a patent pending injectable form of naltrexone.
BioCorRx also has a research and development (R&D) subsidiary, BioCorRx Pharmaceuticals. Currently, this subsidiary is developing a new injectable naltrexone technology (BICX101) via a partnership with TheraKine Ltd.
BioCorRx’s plan is to seek Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for BICX101 and/or its naltrexone implant product(s). BICX101 is a sustained release, injectable naltrexone for the treatment of opioid abuse and alcoholism.
Last month, BioCorRx announced a pilot for the BioCorRx® Recovery Program in collaboration with the One Day at a Time Program (ODAAT). This is a program funded by the City of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania.
This will be a paid demonstration pilot in which the BioCorRx Recovery Program will be utilized to treat a number of individuals suffering from opioid and alcohol use disorders. The ODAAT program assists greater than 56,000 residents of Philadelphia.
Earlier this month, BioCorRx announced that following the pre-Investigational New Drug (pre-IND) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and based on the FDA’s responses to BioCorRx’s development plan for BICX102, it has extended Dr. Balbir S. Brar’s agreement as VP of Drug Development for the BioCorRx Pharmaceuticals subsidiary for an additional one year period.
Dr. Brar has more than 25 years of experience in drug and device development. This includes international regulatory submissions for greater than 50 INDs, 510(k)s and 505(b)(2)s, and also approval of 8 NDAs for drugs now in the marketplace.
Last week, BioCorRx announced the results of its pre-IND meeting with the FDA. The FDA judged the 505(b)(2) pathway as an acceptable route for approval for BICX102. The 505(b)(2) pathway is intended to provide an abbreviated route to approval with less study requirements than traditional applications. BICX102 is a sustained release naltrexone implant for the treatment of opioid and alcohol use disorders.
BioCorRx, Inc. (BICX), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.09, up 6.64%, on 94,424 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 268,336 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0426/$0.282.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB:SGMD) today announces the signing of a binding Definitive Agreement to acquire Sky Unlimited, LLC, which through its AthenaUnited.com operations and website offers multiple popular hydroponic brands to several growing agricultural cultivation sectors. As a result of this acquisition, Sugarmade is raising its revenue guidance for calendar 2019 from $30 million to $70 million. Sugarmade expects this acquisition to be highly accretive to common shareholder value. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article explaining how, now that the legal marijuana and global cannabis markets have exploded, a spotlight is shining bright on the cultivation and growing services segment of the industry, which includes Hydroponic systems and accessories. Additionally, CannabisNewsWire released a report featuring the company which examines that fact that this year will see the largest U.S. hemp crop since changes to federal law created an avenue for production to start again, turning over decades of fallowed industry. And how SGMD is profiting from this development by expanding from hydroponics into investment in hemp production, broadening its cannabis-related portfolio.
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.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH)
American Premium Water Corporation (OTC Pink: HIPH) (the “Company”) announces it has acquired proprietary “Hydro-Nano” Energy, CBD and THC-Cannabis infusion formulations. After months of negotiations, the Company has acquired proprietary infusion formulation technology that will boost its market share by allowing its product stand above any current or future competition.
American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), headquartered in Playa Vista, California, is a diversified holding company, manufacturer, distributor and marketer of branded consumer products. HIPH, the acronym for “Hi-Power of Hydro,” maintains a portfolio of subsidiaries catering to the health-conscious consumer and luxury fashion brand connoisseur. The company’s two main pillars focus on the development of health and beauty biotech, dedicated to unlocking the power of hydrogen and nanotechnologies. Paired with cannabidiol or “CBD” in a unique beverage, the technology is proving to be a significant health and wellness option for astute consumers.
Among the company’s holdings are:
- LALPINA Hydro beverages mix hydrogen with nanotechnology into consumer beverages that combine the best of health, nutrition and fitness to deliver short and long-term therapeutic health benefits. LALPINA Hydro utilizes atomic molecular hydrogen, or diatomic hydrogen, which converts antioxidants in the body to H2O to further enhance hydration, which helps increase endurance, reduce lactic acid and melt away fatigue. Over 500 peer-reviewed articles demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 150 different human disease models.
- LALPINA Hydro CBD is a technically superior CBD-infused beverage. Using hydro and nanotechnology, LALPINA Hydro CBD encapsulates water molecules with cannabidiol molecules, making them infinitely more bioavailable and accelerating delivery to the body’s cells and tissues. Each bottle of LALPINA Hydro CBD contains 3 million nanograms of CBD free from the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). HIPH is the first to introduce a hydro-nano CBD-infused beverage on the market, which is a more effective delivery mechanism for administering CBD into the blood stream than traditional beverages or oils, with up to a 90 percent higher absorption rates.
The company recently signed a distribution agreement for its subsidiary, LALPINA Hydro CBD, to sell its beverages to two SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) e-commerce channels: SingleSeed.com and DIGSHydro.com. SING is a technology and investment company with a portfolio that includes mobile payments, blockchain solutions and ancillary cannabis services. HIPH will drop ship its product to the customers.
HIPH CEO Ryan Fishoff said the e-commerce arrangements “could bring in excess of a million of revenue over the life of the agreement.” The agreement serves as a pillar of the company’s e-commerce distribution strategy, driving awareness and impressions for the LALPINA brand.
In addition, HIPH seeks to market emerging fashion brands and leverage its relationship with classic retail partners while incorporating disruptive blockchain technologies to expand its retail footprint with the following:
- Gents, a producer of luxury hats and other fine accessories and apparel, was acquired in September 2017. Gents is distributed across many luxury retail outlets including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and other high-end channels. The company added the Worthy streetwear brand to its portfolio in June 2018.
- HIPH also acquired the license to operate the FashionCoinX exchange, a blockchain exchange focused on creating utility tokens for the fashion industry, and created THRD Coin, a multi-branded utility rewards token that is also the first token to be traded on the exchange. The company is leveraging its retail footprint and expertise in the fashion and apparel space with the burgeoning blockchain sector.

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG)
Victory Marine Holdings (OTCPK.VMHG) announced today the Company’s presence at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. The show, one of the largest shows in the world, will feature more than 1,500 boats and over 110,000 visitors from more than 50 countries. The company stated that they have numerous clients coming into town for the show and they expect to be very active showing boats and working on additional listings. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how VMHG has announced a renewed focus on ensuring effective communication with shareholders and potential investors. The company is putting effort in enhancing brand awareness and the launch of a new website is one of the steps towards achieving the goal, according to a press release (http://nnw.fm/U8MUb).
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 $0.1499, up 3.45%, on 1,290 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 54,573 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0621/$0.97.

United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM) (OTC: UBMCF) (FWB: 0UL)
NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled “Vanadium: The World’s Critical Element Fueling a Major Trade War,” featuring United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE: UBM) (FWB: 0UL). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/0Ao3L. To read the full editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/VqeO7.
United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM) (OTC: UBMCF) (FWB: 0UL) is a vanadium exploration company focused on becoming the first vanadium producer in North America. The company’s flagship project is the Wray Mesa Project, an exploration-stage vanadium property located in Montrose County, Colorado. The property consists of over 107 contiguous mining claims on about 3000 acres. United Battery Metals recently announced that it has tripled its vanadium rich land package in Colorado and Utah. The claims are located on land where both the surface and mineral ownership is held by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) of the U.S. Department of Interior. Valid unpatented mining claims grant the holder the right of mineral possession as allowed by the General Mining Law of 1872, subject to the various state and federal rules and regulations pertaining to mineral exploitation.
Global demand for vanadium as a strategic metal has exploded in recent years. Vanadium price surges have hit recent highs of approximately $22.63 per pound from about $9 per pound last year.? As a result, mining companies are returning to exploration efforts for vanadium.
The Wray Mesa Project area is part of the La Sal Creek District, which has a long history of exploration and production efforts with records showing drill exploration likely started there in the late 1940s with geologists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Atomic Energy Commission, then continued from the 1960s through the 1980s with private sector interests involved. Based on historical records, the Wray Mesa Project appears to have very good to excellent potential with an inferred resource of 500,000 pounds of uranium- and a current estimated vanadium resource of 2,640,000 pounds as per the last 43-101 prepared in 2013 by Anthony Adkins who is a qualified geologist.
The world’s vanadium demand is set to increase significantly as China implements tighter controls over this critical element as it is used in infrastructure to strengthen steel. With trade war tensions mounting, the U.S. will likely be in dire need of a domestic supply of vanadium for use in steel plants opening nationwide and grid power storage. In fact, the White House has deemed vanadium one of 35 critical elements to United States national and economic security (USGS). US Steel announced additional plants opening nationwide, and this bull market in domestic steel production is likely to increase the demand for a domestic source of vanadium as China has begun restricting vanadium exports to the U.S. amid mounting tensions between the two countries over tariffs and certain critical elements such vanadium.
UBM utilized resource estimation software to model the mineralization detected in a number of the 715 historical and 24 recent drill holes within the project area. Results of the model run, minus the estimated effects of the historic mining, identify an indicated resource of approximately 85,500 short tons at an average grade of 0.16% eU308 for a total of 271,000 pounds of contained uranium. Inferred resources total 57,400 short tons at an average grade of 0.15% of eU308 for a total of about 169,000 pounds of contained uranium. The vanadium resource for the two categories, based on a conservative V:U ratio of 6:1, is 1,626,000 (O.95% average grade) and 1,014,000 (0.88% average grade) pounds, respectively.
Vanadium has multiple uses in modern society including being used in vanadium redox flow batteries (“VRFBs”), car charging stations, nuclear power plants and in steel manufacturing. An article in Mining.com notes that vanadium pentoxide (V2O5), which is used in the production of VRFBs used in energy storage systems, breached US$20 a pound in September 2018 for the first time since 2005, a four-fold increase from the start of 2017.
California recently announced that all homes and mid rises must install solar panels by 2020. Vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs) are by far the most superior batteries for large scale energy storage systems and the reason why the Vanadium Redox Flow batteries will dwarf the lithium battery demand. California was the first to announce this green initiative and many experts expect that the revolution will be implemented nationwide in the near future.
Vanadium is one of the 35 minerals deemed critical to the national security and economy of the United States. Among the important uses of vanadium are the following:
- Fast-charging VRFBs have unique characteristics making them especially attractive when compared to conventional batteries. VRFBs can operate at any temperature, be charged and discharged at the same time, have greater design flexibility and a 25-plus year lifecycle. VRFB’s promise to be a major player in the green energy storage revolution because they are 100 percent reusable, recyclable, are nonflammable, compact, able to provide large grid energy storage, can be fully contained and are seen as a viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries.
- VRFBs can be used in a variety of energy storage applications including microgrids, during peak shaving periods and for load leveling, as an uninterruptible power supply, for wind and solar farms, and as an off-grid power supply.
- Approximately 85 percent of vanadium produced is used as ferrovanadium or as an additive to strengthen and harden steel used for applications in axles, crankshafts, gears, surgical instruments and tools, knives, jet engines, high-speed airframes, dental implants, and in seamless tubing for the aerospace, defense and bicycle industries.
- Vanadium alloys are used in nuclear reactors because of the metal’s low neutron-absorbing properties.
The management team at United Battery Metals Corp. includes president, CEO and Director Matthew Rhoades, the former State Geologist for New Mexico and an accomplished professional geologist with direct working experience in exploration and development projects at numerous deposits and mines throughout the American West, Canada, Mexico and South America. He is joined by George Sharpe, a qualified Mineral Exploration Geoscientist, QP, MCIM and CGT, with over 23 years of global mineral exploration in iron coal, gold, base metals, rare earths, uranium, PGE’s, diamonds, iron and industrial minerals.
United Battery Metals Corp. (UBMCF), closed the day's trading session at $1.025, up 2.57%, on 216,291 volume with 226 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 90,608 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.65/$1.58.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) was highlighted today in a report by Livemoney examining how small companies are today’s innovators as we soldier on into a world of cannabis and cryptocurrencies.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
- Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
- Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
- Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards.

The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.
SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR)
October has been a busy month for Canadian cannabis companies, perhaps none more so than premium cannabis company The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR). The Company, which began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in late September, bucked industry trends by completely filling its purchase orders from three provinces before adult use legalization, launched a new cannabis brand in partnership with the team from Ace Hill Beer, broke ground on its first-of-its-kind R&D facility, and kicked off its medical sales program.
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), a Health Canada Licensed Producer (LP) of cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), is an emerging Canadian cannabis leader founded by Medreleaf co-founder Tom Flow and a team of industry pioneers, successful start-up executives and top industry scientists. Flowr’s purpose-built cultivation facilities may be the most advanced in the industry, consistently generating high crop yields, delivering premium and ultra-premium cannabis products, and maximizing return on investment. The company also may be an R&D leader as it was selected by the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company as its exclusive Canadian cannabis R&D partner.
Flowr’s flagship facility, an 84,000-square-foot campus on seven acres in Kelowna, British Columbia, is engineered to grow premium cannabis in rooms that meet pharmaceutical industry production standards for cleanliness. This, along with exacting protocols designed by the Flowr team, enables Flowr to grow cannabis that meets Health Canada’s stringent standards without treating it with the taste- and smell-killing gamma irradiation that most other producers have to use to clean their product. Irradiating the plant – a process similar to pasteurizing food – impairs many of the important terpenes that provide the positive effects, flavors and scents of cannabis while strengthening unpleasant terpenes. Flowr’s products may deliver a better user experience, thus commanding premium prices.
Flowr’s cultivation facilities, built with proprietary, patent-pending systems, are designed to deliver yields targeted at 450 grams per square foot by the end of 2022, which is three times more efficient than the industry average of approximately 150 grams per square foot. By optimizing yield, the Company may produce significantly more cannabis flower on a smaller footprint than other producers, thus generating far high revenue per square foot and keeping costs much lower, leading to higher margins. The Kelowna facility is presently 20 percent operational with the remaining 80 percent slated to come online by early 2019. It is expected to produce up to 14,000 kg of premium, non-irradiated cannabis flower in 2019. With further enhanced yields and planned expansion of production facilities on the campus, Flowr will reach a total capacity of 60,000 kg annually in 2022.
Leading Flowr’s cultivation program is industry pioneer, company co-founder and Flowr president Tom Flow. Flow is widely recognized for his cannabis thought leadership and expertise building and operating cannabis cultivation facilities. Flow also co-founded MedReleaf and designed, built and set up SOPs for their flagship Marcum cultivation facility. Marcum has continued to be perhaps the most productive facility in the country prior to the Flowr flagship facility. Long one of Canada’s most efficient and profitable LPs, MedReleaf was acquired by Aurora for approximately C$3 billion. Flow and his team have designed and built a total of 17 cultivation facilities and secured three producer’s licenses under various Canadian regulatory regimes.
In March 2018, Flowr and the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company – a world leader in lawn and garden products – announced an exclusive strategic R&D alliance. After evaluating numerous Canadian LPs, Hawthorne chose to partner with Flowr based on the experience and expertise of the company’s cultivation and R&D teams and the company’s advanced growing capabilities.
Hawthorne will fund the construction of a 50,000-square-foot R&D facility that is integrated into Flowr’s Kelowna campus. This facility is North America’s first dedicated cannabis R&D facility focused on advancing cultivation techniques and systems. The facility will support researchers from both organizations and combine laboratories, indoor and greenhouse grow suites, training areas and genetics breeding areas in a single building. It is expected to open in early 2019. In addition to helping Flowr maintain its competitive advantage in cultivation, the company’s R&D program will keep it on the cutting edge of cannabis innovation.
Flowr is entering the market with three different brands to meet the growing demand for premium, non-irradiated cannabis in the medicinal and adult use markets:
- FlowrRx, featuring premium quality medicinal cannabis that enables patients to live better, fuller lives. A dedicated Client Services team will provide patients with personalized support while an R&D team develops innovative flower strains and premium products targeted to specific conditions. Patient well-being is considered at every stage of the process – from genetic selection to harvest, trimming and curing techniques. FlowrRx and its team of passionate scientists and leading cultivation specialists are dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of cannabis.
- Flowr is the company’s premium recreational adult-use brand featuring an active, West Coast-inspired lifestyle for the cannabis connoisseur and enthusiast market. Through the continuous innovation of procedures and practices, Flowr’s talented team of experts is crafting premium products that deliver unparalleled experiences.
- Ace Valley, an exclusive partnership with top-selling Ontario craft beer company Ace Hill, will bring Flowr’s premium product to the millennial and casual adult-use markets under the Ace Valley brand.
Flowr recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, the province’s sole legal wholesaler of non-medical cannabis, to supply premium and ultra-premium flower to the province’s retail outlets.

DPL is dedicated to strategically providing capital to small and middle-size businesses for an equity interest in addition to loan fees and interest.

Super Crypto Mining is a rapidly growing organization that recently strategically secured 25 mega watts to power the company’s mining farm.
