Sutter Gold Mining, Inc. engages in the exploration of mineral properties. The Company primarily explores for gold deposits. Sutter currently controls a considerable land position of the Mother Lode in California. The Company has advanced work and exploration programs completed on surrounding land holdings. Sutter Gold Mining has its management office in Lakewood, Colorado. It has its mine office in Sutter Creek, California. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Sutter Gold Mining has two projects. One is the Lincoln Project situated in Amador County, on the California Mother Lode Gold Belt. The other is the Santa Teresa Project situated in the Northern Baja area of Mexico.

Regarding Mexico and the Santa Teresa Concession, the Company entered into an exclusive option agreement with The Alamo Group in October of 2006 to acquire a 100 percent interest in the Santa Teresa Mineral Concession. Santa Teresa is in the historic El Alamo gold mining district, southeast of Ensenada. The property is positioned contiguous to and on strike with the past-producing Princessa Mine.

Sutter Gold released in 2009 the assay results from the initial 32-hole Phase 1 program. The results included intercepts as high as 21.10 grams per ton or 0.62 ounces of gold per ton across 1.35 meters and 16.68 g/t of gold across 3.1 meters. These results continued to reveal the potential of this underexplored district. In addition, the results confirmed manifold high-grade veins up to 260 meters along strike from the historic Princessa Gold Mine and that all known structures remain open in all directions.

Sutter Gold Mining also holds the rights to the geologically similar, high-grade El Alamo district of northern Baja in Mexico. This is where historic mining to the water table produced mined grades of 30 to 60 g/t gold.

MustGrow Biologics Corp. (CSE: MGRO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight MustGrow Biologics Corp..

MustGrow Biologics Corp. (CSE: MGRO) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. People with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) often suffer from depression and bouts of suicidal ideations. Research shows these people can treat this depression with marijuana.

MustGrow Biologics (CSE: MGRO) is an agricultural biotech company focused on developing and commercializing its patented technology that is a natural biopesticide and biofertilizer for use as a fertilizer, nematicide, pesticide and fungicide. MustGrow’s novel and proprietary solutions utilize organic components refined from mustard seed to provide high quality, organic pest control to growers facing challenges associated with soil-borne diseases and pests such as nematodes. The company’s technology provides an all-natural, effective, safe and easy-to-use solution for farmers seeking to raise healthy crops without the use of pesticides.

Nematodes, or microscopic worms, are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth. A handful of soil will contain thousands of nematodes, many of which are parasites of insects, plants or animals. Most plant-parasitic nematodes feed on the roots of plants, damaging the root system and reducing the plant’s ability to absorb water and nutrients (http://nnw.fm/Qkz21). For the past 50 years, nematodes have been controlled using chemical nematicides, but the Environmental Protection Agency now restricts or bans many of the chemical?formulations.

MustGrow’s technologies provide nematode control that is equal and often superior to synthetic alternatives, resulting in elevated yields and increased returns for the grower. The global economic impact of soil-borne nematodes is estimated at nearly $100 billion in lost crops per year. The American Phytopathological Society (http://nnw.fm/3HGuT), an international nonprofit scientific organization dedicated to the study and control of plant diseases, estimates that plant-pathogenic nematodes are responsible for 14 percent of crop losses worldwide.

MustGrow’s technology refines mustard seeds to concentrate the plant’s natural organic compounds that form Allyl isothiocyanate (“AITC”), which serves the plant as a natural defense system against pests and diseases. As a result, MustGrow’s novel product offers first-class performance, is 100 percent natural, and its fertilizer product is listed for organic use by the Organic Materials Review Institute (“OMRI”) under specifications set by the USDA’s National Organic Program.

MustGrow’s initial technology was a granular pre-plant soil biofumigant and biofertilizer containing the active ingredient AITC, a proven nematicide, fungicide and fertilizer. The company has completed 110 independent third-party field trials on fruit and vegetable crops. As a biofertilizer, MustGrow’s product is registered with Health Canada and the EPA in all U.S. states as OMRI-certified. It is also registered for use as a biopesticide by the EPA in key fruit and vegetable growing U.S. states (except California) and with Health Canada. MustGrow is finalizing a new liquid delivery platform with increased concentration of the same active ingredient (AITC) that can be applied through drip lines to meet the demands of today’s growers.

Results of tests completed to date show that MustGrow continues to provide innovative solutions with broad based applications within agriculture. Validated field trial results include:

  • 100 percent control of root-knot nematodes in strawberry crops as compared to methyl bromide
  • 55 percent tomato crop yield increase
  • 95 percent control of Pythium root rot in lettuce fields
  • 70 percent reduction in Verticillium root severity in cucumbers
  • Market Opportunity

Market Opportunity??

MustGrow is also testing the potential application of its technology to the cannabis industry, which is projected to grow to nearly $22 billion in the U.S. by 2020. While there are no uniform guidelines for pesticide use in the cannabis industry, state-by-state regulations in the U.S. do exist which has led to instances of pesticide-tainted cannabis showing up in tested products, leading to recalls and threats of lawsuits. Health Canada recently published regulations for mandatory testing for pesticides in cannabis that are now in effect for all growers.?MustGrow’s?potential application for cannabis production shows that when its product is used as a pre-plant/pot soil treatment, it may significantly help control many soil-borne diseases, pathogens and pests, including nematodes, fusarium, rhizoctonia, and botrytis (gray mold) that affect the cannabis plant. Cannabis consumers are increasingly demanding organic products free from chemicals and have shown they are willing to pay a premium for high-quality organic cannabis. MustGrow is currently running cannabis soil trials and is seeking Health Canada approval for use of its product on cannabis.?

Global crop protection is a multibillion-dollar market that is expected to surge over the next five years. Sales of nematicides are set to grow by 33 percent to $1.43 billion by 2022, while biopesticides are projected to leap by 94 percent to an estimated?$9.5 billion by 2022. MustGrow is targeting the global nematicide industry with products that include an innovative pre-plant soil treatment. Solutions for the global biopesticide industry include seed treatment technologies, fungicides and nematicides.??

MustGrow’s groundbreaking technologies use novel plant compounds to provide superior crop protection naturally.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC).

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) was featured today in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how hemp farmers all over the country can finally heave a sigh of relief after the U.S. Department of Agriculture released its long awaited interim final rule on hemp. Senator Cory Gardner applauded the USDA soon after the regulations were announced, thanking it for “moving forward on hemp rulemaking and recognizing hemp production as an agricultural activity.” He said that legal hemp has the potential to be a major boon to agricultural communities across Colorado, giving farmers another viable and profitable option for their fields.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.

Advanced Extraction Technologies

For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:

  • LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
  • PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
  • Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.

Delta Purification® Technology

HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:

  • Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
  • Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
  • Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.

Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts

HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.

Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.

re3™ Technology

Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.

The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.

Sales and Offtake Agreements

HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.

Project Construction

HTC has focused the Canadian implementation of its BOOM (build, own, operate and maintain) extraction tolling strategy on a location near Regina, Saskatchewan. HTC is currently constructing a 19,000-square-foot GMP Euro compliant extraction tolling facility on six acres of land that will include biomass processing, extraction, implementation of DeltaSolv™ technologies and Delta Purification® systems, distillate and refining equipment, laboratory quality control and testing operations, and on-site office and admin facilities.

Wonderfilm acquired 51% ownership in the joint venture structure and immediately began attaching its own productions to Wonderfilm Global. The joint venture represents a significant opportunity for Wonderfilm, changing how the company does business.

The intention behind Wonderfilm Global is to keep distribution margins in-house that previously went to other companies. Since most Wonderfilm movies are relatively low-risk and easy to sell because they feature desirable cast and genre, third-party distribution companies were previously earning approximately 10%, plus expenses, on Wonderfilm movies without any level of risk. Now, revenue is generated through presales of Wonder?lm projects and, at times, third-party films. The average Wonder?lm movie is pre-sold for $5million, garnering $500,000 to $750,000 per sale as a commission. These commissions now stay in-house with Wonder?lm Global, and the company expects to sell 10 to 12 third-party films between fall 2019 and fall 2020, generating roughly $6 million in commission income.

A further revenue source is generated from theatrical sales through a 50/50 upside split once the minimum sales threshold is met.

Wonder?lm Global has offices in Vancouver, Beverly Hills, London, Ireland, Seoul and China.

Wonderfilm Business Model

Wonderfilm productions are structured to begin generating a return to the company as soon as the camera starts rolling.

Return Before a Film is Delivered: Producer fee line items are included in each production budget. These range from $50,000 to $500,000, depending on the total budget, and are paid to Wonderfilm most commonly on the first day of principle photography.

Distribution: Wonderfilm Global charges sales and distribution fees within each production budget to cover its presale costs.

Note: Wonderfilm’s productions are all structured to minimize risk by matching budget to funds available.

Return After a Film is Delivered: Unsold presale territories are countries or territories left off of a film’s presale list, either for strategic reasons or because the broadcaster/distributor is waiting to see the completed film. These outside-the-budget distribution sales become Wonderfilm profit centers.

Sales overages once contracted presale threshold is surpassed.

The company’s film library grows with each new production, adding to future sales revenue. Depending on the agreement, exploitation rights for future worldwide sales return to Wonderfilm four or seven years after delivery. As of October 2019, Wonderfilm’s growing film library comprises 18 titles for future exploitation.

Note: The nature of the film business is that box office revenue lags production up to a couple of years.

$50 Million Wonderfilm Production Fund (WPF):

Wonderfilm is in the process of raising $50 million to establish a Wonderfilm Production Fund (WPF). WPF is designed to consolidate traditional production financing models into a single diversified, asset-backed debt instrument.

The WPF is a highly specialized investment vehicle with noncorrelated market returns normally reserved for institutional banks and specialty lenders, and it would pay 8% interest directly from each Wonderfilm movie or series budget and not from corporate funds. These same interest payments are already added to each production budget, as the company currently closes a separate financing for every film. The WPF would significantly streamline Wonderfilm’s production rate, adding revenue more quickly and broadening the yearly production slate.

For fund investors, the WPF is a dedicated production-financing vehicle designed to offer a risk-moderated approach to investing in film finance. The managed process provides structure and reassurance that are normally experienced only when working with an institutional lender that has a dedicated staff and resources.

All projects being financed are for Wonderfilm productions, with the fund collateral fully secured by receivables, including presale contracts, government incentives, or a guarantee from Wonderfilm for any unsecured amounts as may be permitted.

Wonderfilm Media Corporation (OTC: WDRFF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.1538, up 18.3077%, on 167,276 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 46,038 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.075099997/$0.504400014.

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Organigram Holdings Inc. (OGI).

Organigram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: OGI) (TSX: OGI), the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading licensed producer of cannabis, today announced that the company was honored with the Top Product Award in the High THC Bottled Oil Category for its medical product, Rossignol, at the November 8 Canadian Cannabis Awards Gala in Toronto. To view the full article, visit http://cnw.fm/xibB3. Also today, OGI provided a corporate update today and announced details for its fiscal fourth quarter ended August 31, 2019 (“Q4 2019”) and full year 2019 conference call. The Company is scheduled to report its fourth quarter and full year earnings results for its fiscal year ended August 31, 2019 on Monday, November 25, 2019 before market open. Furthermore, the company was highlighted in a publication from Motley Fool, examining how marijuana is expected to be one of the fastest growing industries on the planet over the next decade. This strong double-digit annual growth rate is a big reason why investors have flocked to pot stocks in droves over the past three-plus years.

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) is the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading Canadian licensed producer (“LP”) of high-quality cannabis and extract-based products. Founded in 2013, Organigram is focused on producing high quality, indoor-grown cannabis for patients and adult recreational consumers in Canada, as well as developing international business partnerships to expand the Company’s global footprint. 

The Company has distribution arrangements in all 10 provinces1. Organigram delivers industry-leading yields and maximizes quality cannabis production at the lowest cultivation cost per gram among publicly reporting Canadian LPs.

Financial Results

In Q2 2019, the Company reported record net revenue of C$26.9 million, cash cost of cultivation of C$0.65 per gram, industry leading gross margin of C$16 million or 60% and adjusted EBITDA of C$13.3 million or margin of 49%, positive for the third consecutive quarter.

Significant Expansion Plans with Streamlined Licensing Process

Located in Moncton, New Brunswick, Organigram’s production facility and research & development program includes a state of the art, indoor 3-tier cultivation system which maximizes facility square footage. Its Phase 4 expansion project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 for increased target production capacity of 113,000 kg/year (249,000 lbs)2. As the Company expands its cultivation and processing capacities, Organigram is able to file amendments to the existing facility and each new production area is largely a replica of previously licensed areas, which results in a relatively streamlined and predictable licensing process with Health Canada.

In addition to increased production capacity from Phase 4, Organigram’s Phase 5 expansion includes plans for additional extraction capacity and its own edibles facility. Construction is expected to be substantially completed in October 2019.

Proprietary Technology

The Company’s indoor facility allows for control of all critical facets of the lighting and environmental elements to drive maximum quality and yield in the plants. The Company’s in-house proprietary information technology system, called OrganiGrow, tracks grow cycles, environmental conditions and other factors to optimize cultivation.

Numerous design and automation improvements include automated potting, pre-roll and packaging machines, and larger propagation rooms with advanced environmental systems.

Well Positioned for Canada’s Legalization of Edibles and Other Derivatives Products

Through its facility expansions, partnerships and research and development, the Company is well-positioned to capture further growth from the legalization of edibles and derivative products expected in October 2019. Its initial product focus is on vaporizable products and edibles.

Organigram’s development of a shelf-stable, thermally stable, water-soluble and tasteless cannabinoid nano-emulsion formulation may provide for an initial onset of effect within 10 to 15 minutes in a beverage. Non-cannabis formulations with a similar molecule size are water-soluble in humans (i.e., absorbed through the bloodstream rather than requiring first-pass liver metabolism, which results in longer onset and duration uncertainty). The Company expects to receive research and development licensing in the near term, at which point testing will be conducted to confirm the onset and duration.

Organigram has entered into an exclusive consulting agreement with The Green Solution (TGS), a proven market leader based in Denver, Colorado for the development of commercial scale extraction and derivative product development in Canada. Organigram’s partnership with Canada’s Smartest Kitchen, a leader in food product development, will expand the Company’s edibles R&D program.

The Company recently announced a C$15 million investment commitment in a high-speed, high-capacity, fully automated production line with a capacity of 4 million kilograms of exceptional chocolate cannabis edibles per year.

Organigram also has a multiyear extraction contract with Valens GroWorks Corp. to produce extract concentrate for oils and other derivative products.

Disruptive Technology

Through its partnership with Hyasynth Biologicals Inc., a biotech company and leader in the field of cannabinoid science and biosynthesis, Organigram has invested in a potentially disruptive technology that uses patented yeast strains and enzymes to naturally produce cannabinoids without growing the cannabis plant. This process has the potential to create a global supply of pure cannabinoids at a fraction of the cost of traditional cultivation. Organigram views this investment as providing early access to what it expects to be the future of cannabinoid production – cost-effectiveness, purity and scalability.

International

Organigram believes there will be increasing demand for CBD in Canada and beyond. As such, the Company has invested in Alpha-Cannabis Germany (ACG) and expects to provide ACG with flower for conversion into extracts. ACG is a medical cannabis provider serving the largest legalized medical market in Europe. The Company anticipates entering into an agreement with ACB to purchase pure synthetic CBD isolate in the future.

Organigram is also invested in Eviana Health Corp. (CSE: EHC), a Serbian-based company with hemp farming and processing assets.

Experienced Executive Team

  • CEO Gregory Engel has 30 years of national and international experience in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, cannabis, and consumer packaged goods (CPG), and most recently served as CEO of Tilray Inc. where he was instrumental in the company becoming the first Canadian exporter of medical cannabis, as well as establishing several trailblazing industry standards

The system is designed and engineered for ease of use, allowing users to farm year-round in any location of the world, supporting the company’s mission to provide customers with the ability to cultivate their own organic “superfoods.”

GrowPod Design & Function

GrowPod is a modular, stackable and mobile vertical growing environment specifically engineered to maximize yield and automation. GrowPods are available as a vertical pod, stacker pod or custom-built pod.

The Stacker Pod is a certified organic soil system that offers growers multiple levels of planting in order to maximize space and produce options with different fruits and vegetables. The Vertical Pod utilizes a vertical hydroponic system. It is affordable, scalable, efficient, automated and sustainable. The output provides customers with fresh and clean produce year-round in any climate. The Custom Pod is built to suit the farmer’s specific crop and grow goals.

Each 320-square-foot GrowPod container will have an annual production capability of up to four times that of outdoor growing methods, dramatically increasing profitability to the grower. The controlled environment of the GrowPod ensures efficient power and water usage in growing a wide range of horticultural and agricultural products in all environments and climates.

Thanks to a combination of hydroponic and certified organic soil systems, crop yields are higher, faster, and more consistent that conventional means. Customers can enjoy an average of eight higher yield crop cycles anywhere in the world.

GrowPod Features:

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP).

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) was featured today in a publication from HempWireNews, examining how hemp farmers all over the country can finally heave a sigh of relief after the U.S. Department of Agriculture released its long awaited interim final rule on hemp. Senator Cory Gardner applauded the USDA soon after the regulations were announced, thanking it for “moving forward on hemp rulemaking and recognizing hemp production as an agricultural activity.”

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary DehydraTECH™ technology for improved taste, rapidity and delivery of bioactive compounds, including nicotine and cannabinoids. To achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset, consumers traditionally defaulted to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering these substances through a patented process within edible food products, thus eliminating all the harmful health consequences of smoking.

Lexaria’s technology is unique in that it takes advantage of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) food ingredients processed with its patented DehydraTECH technology to improve taste, remove odor and decrease the time to onset of bitter-tasting drugs. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise and has existing cannabinoid licensing agreements with companies in Canada and the United States. Lexaria has also developed its own hmep-oil brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within popular foods such as coffee, tea and supplements. These brands include ViPova™, TurboCBD™ and ChargD+™.

Virtually unique across both the hemp and the cannabis industries, Lexaria has successfully entered into a R&D and product development partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Only a small handful of hemp or cannabis-related companies have achieved formal relationships with Fortune 500 industry leaders, demonstrating the wide applicability of Lexaria’s technology.

In June 2019, building on its original 2015 independent, third-party laboratory in vitro lab experiments, which confirmed the absorption levels of cannabidiol (“CBD”) into human intestinal cells rose by 499% through the utilization of the DehydraTECH technology, Lexaria completed a series of animal studies using an enhanced formulation of its DehydraTECH technology. The results of the animal studies using the enhanced DehydraTECH formulation showed an increase of CBD delivery into the blood when compared to generic industry MCT coconut-oil formulations by 811%. In addition, the animal studies also showed delivery of 1,937% more CBD into animal brain tissue after 8 hours using the enhanced DehydraTECH technology when compared to generic industry MCT coconut-oil formulations.

Lexaria also has completed the first phases of its collaborative research program with the Canadian government’s National Research Council (the “NRC”) under which several studies were designed to optimize Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology, enabling delivery of API’s within foods, beverages, capsules and other ingestible formats. These studies investigated the lipophilic active agent classes including cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine using advanced analytical techniques, including mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance testing, with the results of the studies confirming that Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology did not create any covalent-bonded new molecular entity (“NME”). Whenever an NME is created, regulatory bodies such as FDA and Health Canada routinely require extensive health, safety and efficacy studies prior to that product’s release into the marketplace. That the NRC program failed to find evidence of an NME suggests products utilizing the DehydraTECH technology may require a less burdensome regulatory pathway.

Results from this R&D have helped support B2B relationships with Fortune 500 companies. Lexaria has four distinct subsidiaries that focus on different market sectors: hemp/CBD; pharmaceutical; cannabis; and nicotine. In August 2019, Lexaria was issued its cannabis research and development licence from Health Canada which will allow Lexaria to continue its further investigations in-house of its DehydraTECH technology in connection with cannabinoids, along with ongoing work with vitamins, NSAIDs, PDE5-inhibitors, nicotine and other molecules.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong and growing intellectual property portfolio. As of the August 2019, the company’s patent portfolio includes ~60 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world; and 16 patents granted to date. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the U.S. and internationally by the end of 2019 and beyond. Some of its more recent areas of investigation have included human hormones and erectile dysfunction substances, among others. Lexaria’s granted patent portfolio related to cannabinoid delivery is one of the largest in the world.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology to third-partners and has signed licensing agreements with start-up companies as well as with a Fortune 100 industry leader. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has contributed to several multi-hundred million-dollar valuations over the course of his career. He is supported by a growing team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed Monday's trading session at $0.593475, off by 4.2782%, on 54,505 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 89,981 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.399800002/$1.6875.

OriginClear (OTC: OCLND)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight OriginClear (OTC: OCLND).

Deeply committed to its slogan – above and beyond clear water – OriginClear Inc. (OTC: OCLND) provides companies with much more than simply water treatment solutions. As companies opt for OCLN’s proprietary water treatment systems, they are also meeting new Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) standards, which are fast becoming an invaluable distinction in the investing world.

OriginClear (OTC: OCLND) leads the self-reliant water revolution, deploying advanced technologies at the point of use, with modular, prefabricated systems that create durable assets and water independence for industry, commerce and agriculture.

Failing infrastructure and the rising cost of water are driving businesses to treat their own water. OriginClear leads this megatrend with on-premise systems enabling very high purification and recycling levels that centralized systems cannot achieve.

Systems installed at the point of use become productive assets for businesses that also increase property values. And OriginClear helps corporations improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) standings with world-class water management.

Operations & Markets

OriginClear leads a new generation of water companies that focus on meeting the needs of businesses looking for compact, advanced technologies that can be shipped to and installed at the point of use. The company manufactures and distributes its professional-grade water treatment and conveyance products to commercial and industrial properties, fielding both direct and indirect sales channels to reach end-market clients such as hotels and resorts, real estate housing developments, office buildings, military installations, schools, farms, food and beverage manufacturers, industrial warehouse, oil and gas producers, and medical and pharmaceutical facilities.

From its Texas-based factory, OriginClear designs and prefabricates an entire line of plug-n-play containerized units called Modular Water Systems™ that enable water purification, recycling and wastewater management.


Industrial Pretreatment Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) designed by Daniel M. Early, using reinforced thermoplastic modules.

These onsite modular products provide clients with water independence through ownership and operational control over water quality, enabling them to increase productivity while reducing environmental, health and safety risks from pollution, contamination and corrosion. Modular water products are trusted to balance performance with cost-effectiveness, enabling business users to go well beyond municipal standards for water quality, therefore achieving high levels of satisfaction for their own customers, and improved sustainability for their properties.

OriginClear’s water treatment equipment can boost real estate asset value as a fundamental capital improvement, combined with long-lasting water savings for the corporate bottom line.

Product Portfolio

OriginClear groups its products into three main categories:

  1. Water Treatment: achieving high grade purification.
  2. Water Conveyance: water transportation and pumping.
  3. Advanced Technologies: commercialization of innovative technologies.

OriginClear’s complete line of compact, on-site, point-of-use products include: advanced purification systems that are skid, rack-mounted and containerized for reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, media filtration, disinfection, water softening, ion exchange and electrodeionization (EDI), combined as needed in small to medium commercial and industrial applications, and custom-build projects. Water conveyance products include pump and lifting stations, modular storage tanks, and control monitoring panels.

OriginClear’s line of modular water products and systems is key to the self-reliant water treatment revolution as they create “instant infrastructure” – fully engineered, prefabricated and prepackaged systems that use durable, sophisticated materials. The units are available in standard capacities for onsite closed-loop systems at commercial business locations.

The company’s rugged wastewater treatment plants, highly reliable pump stations, and premium water purification units typically offer 25 percent lower initial costs over conventional systems, with greater quality and full connectivity. These pump stations and wastewater treatment products utilize high density thermo-plastics (HDPE) and proprietary, innovative prefabrication methods and materials that deliver the longest life and strongest products.

Breakthrough Technologies

OriginClear has a long history of innovation through its OriginClear Technologies division, which is responsible for identifying leading-edge technologies to solve today’s toughest challenges. These advanced technologies are the centerpiece of the division’s international licensee network. The technologies are developed in OriginClear Technologies, and licensees integrate them into their own products.

Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) and Advanced Oxidation (AOx™) are the principal, well-proven technologies.

EWS is OriginClear’s breakthrough water cleanup technology which utilizes a catalytic process to concentrate and eliminate suspended solids in the worst commercial and industrial wastewater.

AOx is OriginClear’s proprietary advanced oxidation technology which generates a dense cloud of ozone, hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radicals, dramatically reducing or eliminating dissolved organic microtoxins, including bacteria and viruses, hormones, drugs, pesticides such as Roundup, and synthetics. AOx has also been shown to effectively reduce harmful chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide – the “rotten egg” smell in crude oil that reduces its value.

Through international licensing and partnerships, OriginClear’s advanced technologies are being adopted to treat tough water problems in East and South Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and North America.

Market Opportunity

In just 10 years, the global water services market has doubled into a trillion-dollar industry, driven by improper sanitation and water scarcity. Only 20 percent of all sewage and only 30 percent of all industrial waste are ever treated. Additionally, water leakage results in the loss of 35 percent of all clean water across the planet; reducing that percentage by half would provide clean water for 100 million people. This is a situation of great danger, but also great potential.

The statistics demonstrate that we can no longer rely on the efficiencies of giant, centralized water utilities to meet these challenges. An increasing number of businesses are starting to take notice, instead conducting their own water treatment and recycling. Whether by choice or out of necessity, those businesses that do invest in onsite water systems get a tangible asset on their business and real estate, and can enjoy better water quality at a lower cost.

Out of the public’s eye and with OriginClear’s help, a growing number of self-reliant businesses are building Decentralized Water Wealth™ for themselves while also helping their community. They know that environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing guidelines, which represent $22 trillion of assets under management around the world, specifically note the key indicator of how well corporations manage their water.

OriginClear is a key enabler of ESG water management for corporations that are increasingly responsible for what was once delegated to central utilities. For example, when a corporation manages its own water, and uses OriginClear’s proprietary hybrid treatment methods, it can significantly reduce both water use and nutrient footprints (carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus) in one compact package.

These hybrid processes feature advanced blackwater treatment with advanced clean water processing. They can convert toxic nutrients to less harmful compounds, and even capture them for beneficial reuse purposes, as shown in OriginClear’s recent case study.

Revenue Growth through Synergy

Since OriginClear acquired it in 2015, Progressive Water Treatment has generated steady revenues in the range of a million dollars a quarter. It is now the Fabrication and Manufacturing Division for the whole company. The team at Modular Water Systems, headed by Chief Engineer Daniel M. Early, is responsible for overall design and high-level engineering. It relies on the Fabrication and Manufacturing Division to add incremental revenue for its modular product line, without requiring large increases in personnel.

OriginClear believes that these two business units can develop growing revenues through synergy and ultimately help achieve overall profitability. OriginClear also seeks to acquire profitable water companies that can complement the synergy of its existing units and accelerate both revenues and profitability. However, acquisitions are neither guaranteed, nor essential to OriginClear’s continued growth.

 

Leadership

OriginClear’s management team brings strong leadership and a background in managing business operations, sales, technologies, and finance. The team combines idealism with solid commercial skills, achieving a triple bottom line of environmental, social and financial gain.

Riggs Eckelberry – Chairman, CEO and Co-founder

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (IGNG).

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. People with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) often suffer from depression and bouts of suicidal ideations. Research shows these people can treat this depression with marijuana.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., a California corporation (“Grapefruit”), as of May 31, 2019, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (OTC: IGNG), a Delaware corporation whose shares of $.001 par value common stock are publicly traded on the OTCMarkets OTCQB Market under the symbol “IGNG.” IGNG is subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and files annual and quarterly reports pursuant thereto. Grapefruit holds licenses originally issued by the State of California in January 2018 to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products. Grapefruit’s management now owns a controlling interest in IGNG which now owns 100% of Grapefruit’s outstanding shares. As a result, IGNG’s financial reports will consolidate both IGNG’s and Grapefruit’s balance sheet, statement of operation and statement of cash flows and IGNG and Grapefruit will be operated as a single company. IGNG intends to change its name to Grapefruit and to obtain a more appropriate trading symbol as soon as possible. Hereinafter the combined companies will be referred to as “Grapefruit” or the “Company.”

Grapefruit’s corporate headquarters is in Westwood, Los Angeles, California. Grapefruit holds licenses to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products which were originally issued in January 2018 and is fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations to operate its cannabis manufacturing and distribution businesses.

The company is well-focused on sourcing only the “best of the best” raw cannabis materials to create the highest quality, most-trusted and consistent recreational and medical cannabis products for its customers. Grapefruit is committed to ensuring class-leading quality by rigorously testing the purity and potency of its raw materials throughout the manufacturing process and distribution chain.

Grapefruit owns and operates its fully licensed and compliant ethanol extraction laboratory located in the Coachillin’ Industrial Cultivation and Ancillary Canna-Business Park in Desert Hot Springs, California. The company’s extraction lab produces high quality, cannabis-derived distillate, also known as “honey oil,” from cannabis flower and “trim.” THC honey oil is one of base cannabis commodities which serves as the active ingredient in everything from infused edibles and tinctures/creams to the cartridges used in vapes and e-cigarettes. Honey oil often sells on the wholesale marketplace for thousands of dollars per liter, with pricing being dependent on quantity purchased, as well as other market factors such as the availability and cost of the underlying flowers and/or trim.

Grapefruit began its extraction operations in May 2019. Plans are in place to expand its honey oil production through the purchase of additional distillation equipment, which is expected to significantly increase the company’s production capacity by the fourth quarter of 2019. Grapefruit’s extraction lab is fully scalable and expansion will be built-out on a two-acre lot owned by Grapefruit at the Coachillin’ site adjacent to its current manufacturing and distribution operation.

Grapefruit selected the City of Desert Hot Springs for its cannabis extraction laboratory, because the city has created a friendly business environment for cannabis-based manufacturers, including incentives like the absence of taxes on cannabis oil production revenues. This affords Grapefruit a fundamental competitive market advantage over other Honey Oil producers.

The California cannabis regulatory scheme is unique in that it requires all cultivators (cannabis farms) and manufacturers (whether producing oils/distillates, infused edibles, tinctures creams or other cannabis products) to sell their products into the legal cannabis wholesale and retail markets exclusively through licensed distributors such as Grapefruit. Grapefruit initially obtained its California recreational and medicinal cannabis distribution license Jan. 4, 2018. In May 2019, Grapefruit was granted its provisional distribution license which is renewable annually, thereby cementing the regulatory foundation necessary to rapidly expand its distribution business.

Grapefruit’s distribution license affords it a twofold strategic advantage: first, to market and sell its own cannabis product lines to retailers throughout California; and second, to buy and resell bulk cannabis flowers and trim as well as all other legal cannabis products to properly licensed distributors and/or retailers throughout California.

The Coachillin’ Canna-Business Park, home to Grapefruit’s current operating facilities and adjacent two-acre parcel of land, is a 160-acre, self-contained legally mapped compound providing the Company with a fully permitted and serviced physical plant from which Grapefruit intends to establish a leading position in the booming California cannabis sector. The parcel was purchased by the Company prior to the Park’s full development, and the value of the land the Company owns has conservatively since doubled in value to over $2 million. Additional long-term benefits of the Coachillin’ compound include agricultural rates for power, which are currently $0.09 per kilowatt hour; the Park’s deep-water well that fully satisfies its need for water; and security expenses shared by all resident businesses. The Coachillin’ Park’s promoters also plan to position the Park, located only 10 miles north of rapidly growing uptown Palm Springs and less than 15 miles from the site of the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals as a must-see canna-tourism destination.

Grapefruit’s ultimate goal is to become a vertically integrated, seed-to-sale cannabis and CBD product company serving the California market. Moreover, it plans to roll-out its product lines in other states, such as Nevada, Illinois, Oregon, Colorado and Washington. Grapefruit has plans to build a large, all-inclusive facility that will house a 50,000-square-foot-plus indoor grow canopy, a large extraction laboratory designed to extract both THC and CBD cannabinoids via non-volatile (ethanol) and volatile (butane) processes, a manufacturing space to produce Grapefruit’s vape lines and CBD products, an FDA-certified kitchen for the production of Grapefruit edibles and a distribution facility to sell all products into the entire cannabis market. The indoor grow canopy operation will be outfitted and operated to produce ultra-high-quality flowers and buds, some of which, along with the high-quality trim resulting from cleaning and maintaining the grow, will provide biomass necessary to feed the company’s extraction laboratory. Fueled by this hand cultivated biomass, Grapefruit’s lab will continuously produce pesticide and heavy metal-free world class honey oil to both serve as the active ingredient in all of Grapefruit’s branded and unbranded products and meet the projected ever-growing demand for high quality honey oil in the California market.

Grapefruit’s motto – A High You Can Trust – embodies its philosophy and ethos, reminding consumers of the company’s commitment to manufacturing, procuring and distributing only the highest quality all-natural cannabis flower, concentrates and related products that are free from pesticides, heavy metals and bacteria. Grapefruit will target its products to all recreational cannabis enthusiasts’ as continuous, consistent cannabis products. By relentlessly adhering to these policies Grapefruit intends to become the Titleist of the Cannabis industry, known for unwavering quality and consistency.

Grapefruit is managed by a team of experts possessing the experience, skill and resources required to succeed in the competitive cannabis marketplace. Founded by brothers Bradley Yourist, CEO, and Daniel Yourist, COO, Grapefruit has expanded to become a group of industry professionals sharing a passion for all things cannabis. Both the CEO & COO are attorneys licensed to practice law the State of California who possess expert cannabis licensing and regulatory expertise and experience, which will allow Grapefruit to deftly navigate the ever changing California regulatory landscape and apply for new cannabis licenses at reduced costs when necessary, rather than having to acquire licenses that are often overvalued and/or pay outside counsel to handle such matters.

Grapefruit also has its own line of cannabis-infused concentrates and edibles. Among the brands now in stores or soon to be launched are:

  • Rainbow Dreams is a new lifestyle brand designed specifically for the recreational cannabis marketplace. The Rainbow Dreams brand captures the anything goes party vibe of the 1970s by offering an array of cannabis products, such as a line of vape carts with unique cannabis strains combined with all-natural flavors for a superior no-burn experience. Rainbow Dreams fills an important niche in the marketplace as a top shelf quality product line that is competitively priced.
  • Sugar Stoned, which Grapefruit acquired in the winter of 2018, has always been a popular cannabis edibles brand which terminated operations when recreational cannabis became legal and required a license in California. Grapefruit purchased the Sugar Stoned brand in 2019 and it is now a Grapefruit portfolio brand consisting of a premium quality cannabis-infused gummy line with eight different flavors: blue raspberry, cherry, grape, peach, pineapple, sour apple, strawberry and watermelon. Grapefruit intends to expand the brand in the near future through the release of a variety of infused cookies.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG), closed Monday's trading session at $0.1123, off by 0.088968%, on 16,928 volume with 11 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 324,851 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.006095/$0.358999997.
