The Company owns Pumpkin Hollow, which is the only major, shovel-ready and fully-permitted copper project in North America. Nevada Copper is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Company’s Pumpkin Hollow, located in Nevada, has considerable reserves and resources including copper, gold, silver, and also a large iron resource. Initial production is planned by the end of 2019. The Pumpkin Hollow property hosts two near-term production mines -- one underground and one, globally-significant, open pit. Pumpkin Hollow was discovered by US Steel in 1960 utilizing airborne magnetic surveys.
Pumpkin Hollow is a high-grade skarn/Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) deposit. It is positioned within a porphyry copper district, which has a large metal endowment in deposits controlled by Nevada Copper and several other companies.
Pumpkin Hollow has a substantial deposit size. In addition, several opportunities exist to increase mine life via resource expansion and exploration drilling. The open pit mine is one of the least capital-intensive copper projects worldwide. Moreover, it has an estimated 23-year project life.
Nevada Copper has advanced pre-construction activities at Pumpkin Hollow. The Company has secured long-lead items. Procurement agreements to order SAG and Ball Mill’s for the processing plant, and mobile mining equipment, have been signed.
Cementation USA, Inc., a foremost, international mining contractor has been hired to prepare the shaft for re-sinking which, at roughly 1900 feet, is just 250 feet from completion. In addition, Nevada Copper has started transitioning infrastructure from care and maintenance to active status. The Company has ordered long-lead underground mining equipment.
Yesterday, Nevada Copper announced results from the first two holes of its 2018 open pit diamond drill program, at its 100 percent-owned, fully-permitted Pumpkin Hollow Project. The earlier announced program aims to expand the North Pit deposit and convert previously untested areas, historically classified as waste, to ore.
The first two holes encountered multiple zones of mineralization. This includes intersections that are wider and higher grade than adjacent holes. This includes hole NC18-01, with zones such as 42.7 meters true thickness averaging 2.05 percent copper. More drilling is continuing in Northern Extension and Core Area Zones.
Mr. Matt Gili, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nevada Copper, said, "We are pleased to see this successful start to the 2018 open pit drill program. These first holes both expand mineralization to the north and in the core of the North Pit, and are part of an ongoing drill program with the objective of extending mineralization and converting waste to ore in the open pit."

Aziza Project LLC
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Aziza Project LLC.
Amid revived interest in the potential of Southern Africa’s oil and gas exploration prospects, Aziza Project LLC’s tokenized oil and gas fund is offering investors a foundation building opportunity to fund a new era of hope for the 630 million people who currently have no access to the power grid and typically depend on wood and paraffin for their energy needs.
Aziza Project LLC is a fund that tokenizes high potential oil and gas businesses in Africa, enabling them to raise funds for profit and social good. Aziza Project and its tokenization approach aims to address the obstacles associated with traditional fundraising by taking advantage of the benefits of blockchain technology to eliminate the cost and need for middlemen and complex administration. Aziza Project’s token, the Aziza Coin, is an asset-backed mid-to-long-term security token.
The First in the Fund
The vision for Aziza Project’s primary business is to light up Africa, bringing electricity to the 630 million people who currently have no access to the grid and typically depend on wood and paraffin for their energy needs, and in the process to deliver excellent returns to investors.
Through Aziza Coin, Aziza Project owns 20% of Africa New Energies (ANE), which holds rights to a 22,000-square-kilometer prospective hydrocarbon concession in Namibia. This potentially world-scale oil and gas deposit in eastern Namibia, bordering Botswana and the Kalahari Desert, could transform the region’s energy supply and provide a powerful boost to growth in Namibia. By using big data algorithms, the ANE project will be developed at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
In 2017 ANE rejected a $500 million unsolicited bid in the belief that this prime asset can deliver far more for investors, the local community and the people of Africa. The bid rejection has been superseded by an innovative fundraising model to unlock the value that ANE data indicates is under the ground. This sparked the genesis of Aziza Project, the creation of an oil and gas fund set up to raise capital to take ANE and other high potential oil and gas businesses to the next level smartly and efficiently.
Aziza Project is seeking to raise $60 million through the sale of Aziza Coins, an asset-backed security token compliant with the Ethereum blockchain’s ERC20 standard. The asset, a 20 percent interest in ANE, is estimated to be worth $100 million based on the value of the unsolicited bid. Funding raised by the Aziza Coin Initial Coin Offering, which began in October 2018, will be used to finance a 10 well drilling program for ANE’s Namibian concession and to develop an oil and gas fund. Proving a hydrocarbon resource will result in significant value creation for Aziza Coin holders. Proving of the project’s estimated 1.6 billion barrels of oil equivalent resource could value ANE at $3.1 billion, which would result in Aziza Project’s holding to potentially be worth up to $620 million.
The Aziza Coin seeks to create significant investor value that marries a compelling business case with the efficiency of crypto. People who buy Aziza Coins will have an indirect fractional ownership of the assets held by Aziza Project. And with tokens listed on exchanges, investors will have a degree of liquidity that private company shareholders do not have and with greater access to real returns. Aziza Coin token holders are the sole economic beneficiaries of Aziza Project’s investments and are assured that at least 51 percent of funds will be used to buy back tokens anytime a profit is made in a calendar year.
Typical investment funds charge a myriad of fees and administrative charges. These will not be present within Aziza Project LLC, with no annual fees, exit fees or salary expenses. The vision is to get as much of the investor’s dollar into the assets under management, and then on exit get as much of the asset value back to the investor. Aziza Project believes that tokenization of assets and securities is the future. Distributed ledger technology will be the catalyst for the benefit of both investors and businesses forging their way.
The Aziza Coin ICO is different because its management team is very clear on valuations and laser-focused on the broader objective established by Aziza Project. The Aziza Coin is an asset-backed security token with a strong management team grounded in blue-chip corporate backgrounds and established real-world businesses.
CEO Robert Pyke has a professional background that covers consumer goods, consultancy and now cryptocurrency. Much of his career was spent at Unilever where he worked in a variety of finance roles, rising to become finance director for Unilever’s €20bn turnover Beauty and Personal Care division.
Aziza Project co-founder Shakes Motsilili has an Investments Administration background and worked for several years at Momentum Wealth as head of Actuarial Support. He resigned in 2012 to become an entrepreneur with a vision to electrify the whole of Africa.
Brendon Raw, CTO, is a South Africa-based software developer and investor in the energy technology, property and digital media sectors. Brendon was lead developer on the sales and revenue system of the one of the most valuable internet companies of its day – excite@home and was BP’s tactical application developer, creating several mission-critical commodity trading systems.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
With the end in sight for the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, which contains provisions likely to grant hemp full agricultural legalization, and revenues from existing hemp products rising, hemp farmers are seeing reasons for excitement this fall. Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD) has made the most of this opportunity through investment in Hempistry, a hemp cultivator with big plans for expansion.
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.

SinglePoint (OTCQB:SING), a fully reporting technology company providing mobile payments, ancillary cannabis services and blockchain solutions, recaps the year, providing insight to company initiatives and progress as well as acquisitions, both past and future. In 2018, SinglePoint acquired two companies, which led the company toward significant revenue growth. The company is expecting to top $1 million for 2018 and expects to triple that in 2019 with additional acquisitions and continued growth of current portfolio companies.
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. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. 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.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ (OTC: REFG) proprietary, wide-ranging card processing solution certifies secure and speedy transactions for clients. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/YmGv6. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article examining how this year saw three Canadian cannabis companies introduce marijuana capsules on the market, following the lead taken by Tilray last year.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.
Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.
StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.
“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.019, even for the day, on 199,804 volume with 31 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 446,993 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
Standard Lithium (TSX.V:SLL) (OTC:STLHF) was highlighted today in a report by FN Media Group explaining how, amid the race to capture the lead with new developments in EV’s, lithium-ion batteries, and energy storage technologies, the pressure is mounting on global energy metals developers and existing producers to keep up with secure qualified supply to this growing demand from nations and global corporations for raw materials.
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. Standard Lithium recently welcomed to the Council world-renowned chemist Dr. Barry Sharpless, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.
Standard Lithium is led by a team of professionals with proven strong technical and project development skills. CEO Robert Mintak has a global network of industry contacts and is a pioneer in the rapidly evolving lithium space. COO and President Dr. Andy Robinson is an experienced geoscientist with 20+ years of experience and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. Dr. Robinson has worked on a wide range of projects in the resource, power and energy sectors in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.
The company recently appointed Robert Cross as non-executive chairman. Cross is an engineer with 25 years of experience as a financier and company builder in the mining and oil and gas sectors. He co-founded and serves as chairman of B2Gold, a top-performing growing gold producer which is expected to achieve nearly 1 million ounces of low-cost gold production in 2018. He was also co-founder and chairman of Bankers Petroleum Ltd.; co-founder and chairman of Petrodorado Energy Ltd.; and until October 2007 was the non-executive chairman of Northern Orion Resources Inc. He also was previously the chairman and CEO of Yorkton Securities Inc., and a partner in investment banking with Gordon Capital Corp. in Toronto. Cross has an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo (1982) and received an MBA from Harvard in 1987.
Following a multi-million-dollar financing in Q1 2018, Standard Lithium is well-positioned to meet its upcoming milestones including two maiden resource reports and the launch of its breakthrough rapid lithium extraction technology.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $0.896, off by 2.14%, on 12,699 volume with 22 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 51,040 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.604/$2.09.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTC: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FSE: 38G) ("Sproutly" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the hiring of Melise Panetta to the senior leadership team as Vice President of Sales and Marketing to focus on the Company's branding, marketing and sales objectives of becoming a leading cannabis formulations company focused on beverages.
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTC: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.
To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.
This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.
Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.
Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.
Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.
Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

He was awarded a PhD in biochemistry from Princeton University and is a former faculty member at the National Cancer Institute and Scripps Research Institute. Sen is the inventor on five U.S. patents and numerous international patents and patent-pending applications.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX-V: VIVO, OTCQX: VVCIF) (“VIVO” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Canna Farms Limited (“Canna Farms”), was recognized as the Top Reviewed Licensed Producer of the Year at the recent Canadian Cannabis Awards. The award, announced on November 29, 2018 and chosen by Lift & Co., was based on the overall volume and quality of reviews of Licensed Producers on the Lift.co website.
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 $0.60, off by 4.18%, on 380,564 volume with 222 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 445,282 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.618/$3.29.

Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTC: CHMJF)
Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE:CHM, OTCQB:CHMJF, FRA: CM1) (the “Company” or “Chemistree”) is pleased to announce the following significant developments as provided by its licensee partner managing the cultivation, processing and delivery to points of sale of the Sugarleaf branded suite of products. Also today, the company was highlighted in a report from MicroSmallCap, explaining how a divide is already happening in these early days of cannabis legalization in major markets such as Canada and California.
Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTC: CHMJF) an investment company focused on the U.S. and international cannabis sectors, provides turnkey solutions for the regulated cannabis industry. The company leverages managements’ expertise and decades of experience in the cannabis industry to acquire and develop vertically integrated cannabis assets. Chemistree recently closed on a purchase of prospective cannabis cultivation property in California, made a first investment in the Canadian cannabis industry, owns assets in the State of Washington used to operate an established retail cannabis brand, and has an active pipeline of assets in place to grow its portfolio.
Chemistree offers industry leading expertise across all areas the cannabis business and in its growth as a public or private company
- Investment and funding for rapid growth
- Vertical integration solutions
- Construction, design and/or optimization of indoor or outdoor cultivation facilities
- Reputation management & influencer outreach
- Branding and Packaging
- Social Media and Media outreach
With the marketing of cannabis companies and their products in its infancy, the company believes the industry offers tremendous opportunity for growth in the U.S. and abroad. Chemistree initially targeted the Pacific Northwest for investment and, following its recent California property purchase, expects to expand vertically across the United States in areas where it has a competitive business advantage.
Through its wholly owned CHM Desert LLC subsidiary, Chemistree owns 9.55 acres of undeveloped land in Desert Hot Springs, California. The property is zoned as Light Industrial Lands Designated for Marijuana Cultivation, and local zoning ordinances allow as a conditional use the location of up to three onsite cannabis cultivation buildings of 68,000 square feet each, along with support space that would support production of 55,000 pounds/year.
Through its wholly owned Chemistree Washington Ltd. subsidiary, Chemistree acquired physical assets used in the cultivation, production and distribution of cannabis. The Washington assets are currently under lease to Sugarleaf Farm LLC, which operates the Sugarleaf brand of retail cannabis products in the State of Washington. Sugarleaf Farm is a Tier 3 cannabis producer and processor whose products are sold in about 125 retail outlets. Chemistree has indicated the relationship with Sugarleaf may provide the company with additional opportunities to become involved in the marketing of Sugarleaf products.
Chemistree funded these acquisitions and investments with the proceeds of two non-brokered private placement financings completed earlier this year under the regulations of the Canadian Securities Exchange, totaling CAD$4.5 million. In conjunction with the private placements, the company was granted approval by the CSE for a change of business to become an Investment Issuer. This funding is expected to provide the company “maximum flexibility to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available in the cannabis industry in Canada and the U.S.”
Chemistree also has a strategic investment in Pasha Brands Ltd., a British Columbia based cannabis company with multiple internationally recognized brands. Pasha has a proven history in cannabis retailing and its proposed Licensed Processing (LP) facility on Vancouver Island is in the final stage of the application for government approval. The LP facility is expected to assist in licensing selected craft growers of cannabis and expanding the distribution of locally grown product. The investment represents less than 10% of Chemistree’s working capital.
Company Chairman Justin Chorbajian is co-owner of the largest chain of privately owned hydroponic retail shops in Canada. He also cofounded a group of companies that manufacture and distribute hydroponic equipment. He is a frequent contributor to Growing Exposed, the leading video series dedicated to cannabis cultivation. Company President Karl Kottmeier is a former investment advisor with 20 years of experience listing, financing and administering companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange. He has raised more than $150 million in equity capital for ventures. Chemistree CFO Doug Ford has been general manager of Dockside Capital Group Inc., a private merchant banking and venture capital firm serving emerging growth companies. Sheldon Aberman, the most recent member of the Board, has managed, designed and created industry leading grow room designs around the world. Additionally, he has built several leading brands such as Frost Box and Black Label and is an expert in the accessory market (vape pens, silicon mats and extraction tools etc.).
Data firm Statista has forecast the U.S. legal cannabis market will be worth more than $24 billion by 2025. New Frontier Data, which focuses exclusively on the cannabis industry, projects the value of the Canadian domestic cannabis market that same year at CAD$9.2 billion.
Chemistree Technology Inc. (CHMJF), closed the day's trading session at $0.395, off by 3.96%, on 178,325 volume with 161 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,314 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.268/$0.7158.

Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com (CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.
Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.
At the center of this initiative is the ChineseInvestors Method, a unique integration of a disciplined investing process, web-based tools, personalized instructions and support. Using this strategy, CIIX provides reliable market information to help investors make informed investment decisions and meet their individualized financial goals.
CIIX is also leveraging its financial expertise to enter into the burgeoning CBD industry, which within a few years has grown from a relatively invisible sector to a billowing market expected to reach $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020.
The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.
Under a wholesale agreement with a reputable CBD health brand, CIIX is launching the world’s first online CBD health products store published in the Chinese language. The site, www.ChineseCBDoil.com, caters to a growing number of Chinese people awakening to the numerous health benefits of CBD oil for treatment of a variety of conditions such as anxiety, stress, poor sleep, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. CIIX expects to launch this website at the end of January 2017, and plans to sell CBD-infused products via online and in-store.
In conjunction, CIIX’s cannabis-focused “Yelp”-style mobile app is in development as a platform for Chinese people to review and discuss various cannabis products. The app will be the first marijuana social media mobile app designed for Chinese-speaking customers worldwide.
ChineseInvestors.com (CIIX), closed the day's trading session at $0.58, off by 4.92%, on 185,254 volume with 106 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 533,789 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.365/$1.58.

Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP)
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (OTC: DVLP) announced the launch of a new software division while attending MJBizCon in Las Vegas – a major marijuana business conference that took place from November 14 to 16. The new division, Greener Grows (www.GreenerGrows.com), will provide valuable information to cannabis growers through an online sharing experience.
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), an emerging leader in ancillary software and the cannabidiol (CBD) products marketplace, provides business services and/or products supporting the cannabis industry including an online retail business for CBD, hemp oil and health/wellness related products.
Global acceptance of cannabis and related CBD products continues to increase as North America advances toward favorable legislation. Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, and the United States has 30 states and the District of Columbia allowing either recreational or medical cannabis, or both. Voters in four additional U.S. states will consider marijuana initiatives on the November 2018 ballot. The global legal cannabis market is projected to reach USD$146 billion by the end of 2025, with a greater acceptance of medical cannabis products as a driving factor, according to Grand View Research.
DVLP is taking advantage of consumer demand for CBD products through its wholly owned Pura Vida Vitamins, LLC subsidiary, which recently launched a direct-to-consumer website (www.PuraVidaVitamins.com) and commenced sales of Pura Vida branded products. Pura Vida merchandise includes hemp and CBD-related products and other products focusing on health and lifestyle which are available through established wholesale and distribution channels. In addition, a line of CBD pet supplements and other products are in development.
DVLP recently acquired “Where’s Weed” (Layer Six Media LLC DBA “Where’s Weed”) and its primary asset, WheresWeed.com. Where’s Weed is an American cannabis technology company known for connecting medical and recreational cannabis users with trusted local marijuana businesses in their communities. As a rapidly growing community-based online resource for cannabis consumers with a host of user-friendly services, Where’s Weed offers a sophisticated mobile app with strong traction and powerful growth potential as the North American legal cannabis market continues to expand exponentially.
WheresWeed.com has a large and expanding reach with nearly 3 million pageviews per month. In addition, the WheresWeed mobile app, available in both iOS and Android, has been downloaded over 80,000 times, proving to be complementary to DVLP’s objective to capitalize on the massive growth curve in the marijuana space.
“The huge flood of new growers and producers is likely to create oversupply in the near term, narrowing margins for major producers,” says DVLP CEO Stavros Triant. “However, this should actually increase the net number of new consumers in the marketplace, further reinforcing the enormous growth potential for hub service providers in the space that are situated on high-traffic internet real estate, which is exactly how we view the Where’s Weed property.”
The company’s move into the lucrative C-store snack market was solidified with a material purchase order for CBD oils from a major distributor specializing in the snack foods and accessories to the convenience store and gas station market. The order represents significant progress as DVLP gears up its ready-made snack distribution strategy for its CBD products.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of our CBD product line with this distributor,” Triant states. “The C-Store strategy dovetails perfectly with our direct marketing strategy through our primary online retail channel, and we have indications from the distributor that, if this initial test order goes well, successive Purchase Orders could be significant and underpin strong sales growth in Q1 2019.”
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), closed the day's trading session at $0.0159, off by 2.45%, on 141,649 volume with 19 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 814,808 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0125/$0.14.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) is a research-driven company that has developed and out-licenses its DehydraTECH technology – a drug delivery platform. It is the only company globally with a patent issued for oral delivery of all cannabinoids.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.
The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.05, off by 11.02%, on 133,617 volume with 178 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 237,510 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.775/$2.54.
