Artelo Biosciences, Inc. (ARTL)
NetworkNewsWire, Zacks, StockPulse, Momentous News, Stockhouse, Market Exclusive, Stockwatch, Trading View, Investing.com, Simply Wall St, and Proactive Investors reported previously on Artelo Biosciences, Inc. (ARTL), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Artelo Biosciences, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company that centers on the development of therapeutics that modulate the endocannabinoid system. The Company is quickly advancing a portfolio of broadly applicable product candidates designed to address significant unmet needs in multiple diseases and conditions. These include cancer, pain, and inflammation. The Company formerly went by the name Reactive Medical, Inc. It changed its name to Artelo Biosciences, Inc. in April of 2017. Established in 2011, Artelo Biosciences is headquartered in La Jolla, California.
The Company’s belief is that a biopharmaceutical approach will lead to novel and high-impact therapeutics that harness the full potential of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a widespread neuromodulatory system. It plays a vital role in human central nervous system (CNS) development, synaptic plasticity, and the response to endogenous and environmental insults.
Artelo Biosciences’ business model is to develop manifold pharmacological approaches to ECS modulation. Candidate therapeutic compounds within its current portfolio are based on targeting cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoid transport inhibition.
Artelo’s pipeline encompasses many mechanisms for endocannabinoid system modulation. Specific programs now in development include ART27.13 – a high-potency GPCR Agonist (anorexia, cancer). Programs in development also include ART12.11 - proprietary cocrystal (multiple indications), and ART26.12 – a FABP5 Inhibitor (cancer, pain).
In November, Artelo Biosciences announced that positive non-clinical data with its Fatty Acid Binding Protein 5 (FABP5) inhibitor program under development in collaboration with The Research Foundation of the State University of New York Stony Brook, were published in the October 2019 issue of The Prostate, a premier peer-reviewed journal. (Docetaxel/cabazitaxel and fatty acid binding protein 5 inhibitors produce synergistic inhibition of prostate cancer growth, Carbonetti et. al, The Prostate, 2019, 1-11).
Mr. Gregory D. Gorgas, Chief Executive Officer of Artelo Biosciences, said, “We are very encouraged by the results of the combination of FABP5 inhibitors with standard of care therapy for prostate cancer. This data builds on previously published single-agent results in prostate cancer and we are looking forward to advance ART26.12, our FABP5 inhibitor program, toward human studies as rapidly as possible.”
This week, Artelo Biosciences announced the appointment of experienced industry executive Mr. John W. Beck to its Board of Directors. Mr. Beck brings over 31 years of financial and strategic operational experience, including 15 years at publicly traded life science companies. He is succeeding Georgia Erbez on the Board and has been appointed as Chair of the Audit Committee.

(PMCB), and today choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. concentrates on developing targeted treatments for cancer and diabetes applying its signature live cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®. This unique and patented technology is being used as a platform upon which treatments for many kinds of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built. A clinical stage biotechnology Company and OTCQB-listed, PharmaCyte Biotech has its corporate office in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The Company is also working towards improving the quality of life of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on developing treatments for other kinds of solid cancerous tumors. PharmaCyte’s treatment for pancreatic cancer involves low doses of the recognized anticancer prodrug ifosfamide, together with encapsulated live cells, which convert ifosfamide into its active or "cancer-killing" form.
The capsules are placed as close to the cancerous tumor as possible. This is to enable the delivery of the highest levels of the cancer-killing drug at the source of the cancer. The live-cell encapsulation technology that the Company employs is a way to enclose living cells in protective “cocoons” around the size of the head of a pin. It encapsulates living cells, not drugs. PharmaCyte Biotech is advancing its new treatment for pancreatic cancer into the clinic in the United States, with study sites in Australia and Europe.
Furthermore, the Company is developing treatments for cancer built upon chemical constituents of the cannabis plant, called cannabinoids. PharmaCyte is studying ways to exploit the benefits of Cell-in-a-Box® technology in optimizing the anticancer effectiveness of cannabinoids, while minimizing or outright eliminating the debilitating side effects typically associated with cancer treatments.
Recently, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that its partner, Austrianova, successfully encapsulated the live cells used in PharmaCyte’s therapy for its planned clinical trial in patients with locally advanced, non-metastatic, inoperable pancreatic cancer (LAPC). The cells are currently growing and dividing inside the Cell-in-a-Box® capsules.
PharmaCyte Biotech’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Kenneth L. Waggoner, said, “We are now in the process of monitoring the growth and division of the live cells as they spend more time in a ‘nutrient bath.’ This will allow the cells to continue to grow and divide and then completely fill the capsules. Once the capsules are completely full of live cells, they will be placed into syringes and frozen. Austrianova will then commence testing the capsules in the frozen syringes to finalize PharmaCyte’s clinical trial material.”

True Nature Holding, Inc.’s business plan considers a roll-up of businesses in the compounding pharmacy industry.

The Company is targeting the acquisition of pharmacies that serve the human, and in some cases, pet markets. True Nature Holding has its corporate office in Atlanta, Georgia.
True Nature Holding’s focus is on the consolidation of the compound pharmacy industry. Its plan is to acquire a series of businesses that specialize in compounding pharmacy activities, primarily direct to consumers, and to doctors and veterinary professionals. Pharmaceutical compounding is performed in compounding pharmacies. It is the creation of a specific pharmaceutical product to fit the exclusive need of a patient.
The Company has acquired 100 percent of the membership interests of Newco4pharmacy, LLC. Newco4pharmacy is a development stage business targeted at establishing a network of compounding pharmacies.
True Nature is creating a blend of human and veterinary businesses, and a balance of cash oriented operations, and more usual insurance based operations. The Company expects to create three operating subsidiaries to hold its planned acquisitions, while maintaining its present holding company structure for the publicly held entity. The expectation is that all the new subsidiaries will be wholly-owned, single member LLC's, controlled and managed by the public company.
True Nature Holding’s intention is to establish a joint venture (JV) for-profit subsidiary; True Nature Community Health, Inc. This will be owned by the public company, and a newly formed not-for-profit entity; The True Nature Community Health Foundation. It is launching this new initiative targeted at supporting the need for lower cost pharmaceuticals within the medically underserved small town and rural marketplaces.
True Nature Holding is in the process of acquiring the newly formed subsidiary; True Nature Community Health, Inc. (Community Health Subsidiary). It will have an 80 percent ownership in the Community Health Subsidiary. The remaining 20 percent ownership will be held by not-for-profit organizations.
Recently, True Nature Holding released an update to its shareholders on its strategy. This includes potential acquisitions, financing prospects, and its position concerning plans to participate in the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain space.
Regarding acquisitions, Dr. Jordan Balencic, Chairman, and interim Chief Executive Officer, said, "First, in alignment with our current business model, we have three near-term acquisition prospects at this time. The smallest is an asset acquisition involving the operating assets of a compounding pharmacy operation near West Palm Beach, Florida… Secondly, we have had some discussions with a group of investors who hold interests in a set of clinics, diagnostic facilities, and pharmacies, generally in Florida, mostly in the Dade and Broward county markets.”
Dr. Balencic continued, "We have continued conversations with other pharmacy operators with whom we have had long-term relationships, and subject to terms and financing, could move on those in early 2018 as well as the others previously mentioned."

This news follows the company’s recent announcement that it hired MSourceIdeas and Mr. Lionel Binnie to spearhead major distribution through the hotel pantry and college campus verticals.

Known as “The Nighttime Snack Company,” Nightfood Inc. is focused on improving the late-night snacking choices of consumers while solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem.
Nightfood Ice Cream
Nightfood’s higher-protein and sleep-friendly ice cream won the 2019 Product of the Year Award in a survey of over 40,000 consumers. The annual Product of the Year survey, the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, is conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research. In beating out the other finalists, consumers indicated that Nightfood’s one-of-a-kind innovation and unique value proposition made it a clear-cut winner in the ice cream space and a brand they were highly motivated to try. Winners of the 32-year-old award have been shown to outperform category sales performance by over 38 percent.
Less than two months since manufacturing their first pint of ice cream, Nightfood has now secured distribution in more than 13 states, and has received extensive media coverage from outlets such as USA Today, Fox Business’ Mornings With Maria, Parents Magazine, The Food Network, MarketWatch, The Washington Post, Business Insider, Bustle, and more.
With the Product of the Year award and millions in media coverage, Management has publicly stated their goal of securing nationwide distribution in over 10,000 retail outlets by March 31, 2020.
Formulated by leading sleep and nutrition experts, including America’s most prominent sleep expert, Dr. Michael Breus, Nightfood’s higher protein/higher fiber, and lower sugar ice cream delivers great ice cream taste and texture, while minimizing sleep-disruptive ingredients such as caffeine, excess sugar, and excess fat and calories. The addition of certain minerals, enzymes and amino acids, which research suggests can support sleep quality, is another bonus. Nightfood only uses hormone-free milk, is certified Kosher, and offers eight original flavors, five of which are gluten-free. Nightfood ice cream also uses all-natural sweeteners with no Erythritol, no sucralose, or other artificial sweeteners.
More than 37,000 consumers across the country have already requested coupons for the company’s newly launched Nightfood ice cream by entering a giveaway hosted at NightfoodIceCream.com which includes a chance to win a one-year supply (96 pints) plus a freezer for storage. The coupon program is being run in conjunction with PromotionPod, which has previously conducted successful campaigns for brands such as Chobani, Halo Top, and BodyArmor.
Nightfood Inc. began its nationwide rollout of Nightfood ice cream in February 2019, successfully securing placement in Meijer supermarket locations in the Midwest with a concentration around the metropolitan areas of Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus and Milwaukee. A distribution agreement with New England Ice Cream Corporation (NEIC) will also place Nightfood ice cream in outlets located throughout Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
Ice cream lovers in northern California will find Nightfood Ice Cream at various upscale, independent retail outlets in and around the San Francisco bay area serviced through a distribution agreement with Wonder Ice Cream Company, which services thousands of retail outlets from Bakersfield north to the Oregon border. Consumers can also purchase Nightfood ice cream online at BuyNightfood.com through the Company’s partnership with IceCreamSource.com.
Ice cream is now the 2nd most popular night snack choice, with almost half of all consumers reaching for ice cream after dark. According to IRI Worldwide, 44 percent of all snack consumption occurs between dinner and bedtime, representing a consumer spend of over $1 billion weekly on nighttime snacks in the U.S. alone. Market research giant Mintel recently released a report identifying nighttime specific food and beverages as one of their most “compelling and category changing” trends for 2017 and beyond.
Nightfood has developed a dynamic infographic resource that clearly illustrates the size and scope of the largely untapped nighttime snack category (http://NightSnacking.com). Americans everywhere are likely to identify with the infographic’s results that vividly illustrate late night snacking by age group, popular snack choice, and amount of money spent each week on feeding after-hour snack attacks. Available in eight delicious flavors, Nightfood ice cream can help consumers satisfy nighttime cravings in a better, healthier, more sleep-friendly way.
MJ Munchies, Inc.
MJ Munchies, Inc., was formed in 2018 as a new, wholly owned subsidiary of Nightfood Holdings, Inc. to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. The Company intends to market some of these new products under the trademarked brand name “Half-Baked” and has entered into a Letter of Intent that allows Global Consortium Inc. (OTC: GCGX) subsidiary Infused Edibles to receive an exclusive license to manufacture and distribute marijuana and CBD-infused products under the Half-Baked brand.
Management believes the Half-Baked brand will give the Company a unique and defensible competitive advantage against other recreational edible brands. The Company believes tremendous opportunities currently exist to launch successful and legally compliant products in this space, and that such opportunities will continue to grow over time.
Nightfood founder and CEO Sean Folkson is a formerly frustrated nighttime snacker whose late-night cravings led him to seek a better solution for himself and others through the creation, marketing and distribution of the Nightfood product line. Folkson also founded internet marketing company AffiliatePros.com which provided the startup capital to launch Specialty Equipment Direct, an online distributor of floor removal equipment that quickly grew to 7-figure revenues. Folkson received a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing from S.U.N.Y Albany, New York, in 1991.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC)
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF), a hemp biomass cultivation, extraction, formulation and refining entity, is positioned for a truly soaring bottom line driven by major investments and acquisitions in the fast-growing cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinoid market. The company recently closed a private placement with gross proceeds of $10 million to finance 25 million units of the company (http://cnw.fm/8fBRa) – proceeds used to fund growth plans.
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.
Advanced Extraction Technologies
For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:
- LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
- PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
- Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.
Delta Purification® Technology
HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:
- Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
- Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
- Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.
Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts
HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.
Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.
Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.
The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.
Sales and Offtake Agreements
HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (CSE:SPR) (OTCQB:SRUTF) (FSE:38G) is pleased to announce the delivery of its first shipment of CALIBER flower to Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (“AGLC”), marking its entrance into Canada’s recreational cannabis market. Adult recreational cannabis consumers in Alberta will soon have the opportunity to enjoy CALIBER’s Berry White and Lemon Z strains which will be available for purchase on Alberta’s only legal online recreational cannabis store, AlbertaCannabis.org as well as in many of the over 350 licensed physical cannabis retailers, the most out of any Canadian province. This news immediately follows the announcement from December 3rd, 2019, that Sproutly’s wholly-owned subsidiary Toronto Herbal Remedies (“THR”) signed a Supply Agreement with AGLC.
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: 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.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight InsuraGuest Inc..
InsuraGuest this morning announced that it is now live with Wisp Resort(R), a four-season ski, golf and mountain recreational destination resort in the mountains of western Maryland. The integration provides specialized insurance coverage that employs InsuraGuest’s proprietary InsurTech software as the first line of defense for the resort property and its guests. InsuraGuest Insurance Agency administers the product for hotels and vacation rental properties throughout the United States through Crum & Forster. To view the full press release, visit http://nnw.fm/2kh2Q.
InsuraGuest Inc. is a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) company utilizing its proprietary flagship InsurTech software platform to provide specialized insurance products to end users in the business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) markets. The company’s first focus is on the B2B hotels and vacation rentals sectors, where its API integrates with the clients’ property management systems to offer guests a specialized guest protection policy. The platform and policy combination “InsurTech” product helps transfer the exposure to liability away from the client/property while guests benefit from potential accident and loss coverage during their stay.
InsuraGuest’s platform is currently capable of integrating with approximately 70 different hotel and vacation rental property management systems, giving it access to roughly 40,000 properties worldwide.
The company continues to pursue expansion opportunities and recently signed a Letter of Intent with a master general agent in the United Kingdom and Europe to distribute its platform and products to hotel and vacation rental markets in those regions, as well as plans to expand to Asia in 2020.
Protecting Guests, Enhancing Customer Experience
InsuraGuest is the first line of defense for both the property and the guest.
InsuraGuest is purchased by the hotel or vacation rental “property,” which offers the policy to each registered guest and its occupants for an additional fee. The specialized policy affords coverage for theft of personal property while in the hotel, as well as accidental medical expense and accidental death and dismemberment, up to the policy limits of $2,500 to $50,000.
The U.S. hotel industry generated more than $218 billion in annual revenues in 2018, an increase of $10 billion from the previous year, according to STR’s 2019 HOST Almanac. The European market is more than double the size of the U.S. market. According to Oxford Economics, there were 6.4 billion nights stayed in the world, with 2.6 billion hotel nights in Asia, 2.8 billion nights stayed in Europe, and 1.1 billion nights in the United States. Additionally, $100 billion was spent on vacation rentals in the United State alone, where there are approximately 4.5 million second homes are being managed by a third-party rental company.
With distribution in Europe and the United States, InsuraGuest’s demographics combined will total 3.9 billion nights stayed, and will more than double its vacation rental opportunities.
Within this burgeoning, high-demand industry is risk of liability to guest injury. For example, gym injuries are among the top five most common hotel accidents. Without proper hedges in place, the property may be liable in a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
Though the potential for accidents, slip and falls and mishaps can be widespread, it can be covered under the InsuraGuest Specialized Guest Protection Policy to provide guests a worry-free and enjoyable stay that potentially increases loyalty for the property.
- Targeting hotels and vacation rentals, a multi-billion-dollar industry
- Providing the first line of defense in case of accident, loss or death
- Expanding distribution reach with footing in European hotel and vacation rental markets
- Expansion into Asia by 2020

Sigma Labs Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB)
Sigma Labs Inc.’s (NASDAQ: SGLB) exclusive, in-process quality-control platform for metal-additive manufacturing was featured at the SGLB booth at Formnext 2019, the industry’s premier global conference held November 19-22, 2019, in Frankfurt, Germany. SGLB, the leading developer of quality assurance software for the commercial 3D metal-printing industry, participated at the event, where more than 850 exhibitors and almost 35,000 attendees gathered to view an impressive display of digital manufacturing capabilities. To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/BnVR6 Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how SGLB enables operators of machines making 3D metal parts to offset emerging quality problems, sustain part quality and avoid rejects through its in-process quality-assurance software. To view the full article, visit http://nnw.fm/BnVR6.
Sigma Labs Inc. (SGLB) is the only provider of in-process quality-assurance software to the commercial 3D printing metal industry that enables operators of machines making 3D metal parts to offset emerging quality problems, sustain part quality, and avoid rejects. Sigma’s software is the singular solution that enables both real-time, in-process detection of quality control manufacturing irregularities for critical metal parts and then provides the operator the actionable information needed to adjust and mitigate the developing anomaly. Sigma Labs’ software represents a paradigm shift in the quality control process for the manufacture of 3D printed metal components. The nascent 3D metal printing industry is on the verge of radically altering the speed and technical complexity of manufactured parts. Further, it makes possible just-in-time availability of critical components – all at reduced cost, time, waste and weight. 3D printing, heralded as the fourth industrial revolution in manufacturing, will only truly surpass traditional techniques when the additive manufacturing industry moves from “post process” quality control to “in process” quality assurance.
For the industry to move from prototype manufacturing of critical components to economically viable commercial production, the 3D metal printing industry must find ways to dramatically increase production speed and quality yields, and to dramatically decrease the excessive cost of quality control. To achieve these prerequisites and move 3D metal printing into the mainstream, parts must be inspected and certified during the manufacturing process rather than after. Parts in the production process that are developing signs of quality control problems must be identified in real-time and alerts must be issued. The problem, along with the solution, must then be communicated to the machine operator to implement repairs.
Revolutionizing Additive Manufacturing
Sigma Labs, with its PrintRite3D® brand, has established a new benchmark in the development and commercialization of real-time computer aided inspection (“CAI”) solutions. Sigma Labs resolves the major roadblocks and costly quality control challenges that impede the 3D manufacture of precision metal parts. The company’s breakthrough computer-aided software product revolutionizes commercial additive manufacturing, enabling non-destructive quality assurance during production, uniquely allowing errors to be corrected in real-time.
Sigma Labs was founded in 2010 by a team of Los Alamos National Labs scientists and engineers to develop and commercially license advanced metallurgical products for the military ordinance, dental implants, and then for additive manufacturing (3D printing). After assessing 3D metal printing technology and the costly, inconsistent quality control issues, Sigma Labs concluded that the enormous potential of 3D metal printing could only scale up if in-process quality-assurance tools were developed to observe, manage and control the manufacturing complexities in such a manner that reliability and repeatability of very high precision quality metal parts could be achieved in the process. Sigma Labs’ patented and third-party validated software has achieved these objectives and now delivers the critical elements needed to unleash the promise of 3D metal printing.
Sigma Labs’ products and services are engineered, manufactured and qualified for use in the highly demanding and hyper precise production environments of the aerospace, defense, transportation, oil and gas, biomedical and other precision-dependent industries.
Additive metal manufacturing combines multiple processes and parts into one single 3D printed part. Due to variances in the additive manufacturing process, parts of consistent quality currently can’t be reliably produced in either large or small quantities without substantial postproduction inspection and rejection costs. Parts are inspected after production using CT scans and other means, so the manufacturer doesn’t know until the very end which of the finished parts meet design specifications. This means lost time, lost profits and inability to economically scale up production.
Sigma Labs solves this problem with its patented, in-process quality control technology that informs operators and engineers how to improve both the manufacturing process and quality by capturing meaningful data about inconsistencies in real-time. Sigma Labs is also partnering with OEMs, working toward the visionary introduction of revolutionary closed-loop control that will bypass the machine operator and automatically make in process corrections by reducing machine variations.
Sigma Labs’ next generation technology gives manufacturers the ability to make fast, virtual real-time adjustments so that each finished part is uniform and within critical specifications, thereby improving production quality, decreasing end-users’ risks and waste, and increasing profits and speed to market. Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D® IPQA Software monitors and assesses the quality of each production part in the 3D additive manufacturing process – layer by layer, and in real-time. This has never been available until now.
Sigma Labs maintains a strong intellectual property portfolio consisting of trade secrets, process know-how and 34 patents either granted, pending or awaiting pre-publication around the globe. These patents encompass the fundamental technologies underlying Sigma Labs’ melt pool process control, data analytics, anomaly detection, signature identification, and future “closed-loop control” of 3D metal printing.
Providing advanced quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry is currently a $1.4 billion addressable market expected to grow to $3.9 billion by 2023. Integrating Sigma Labs’ groundbreaking software helps arm the industry with a necessary catalyst to help enable and optimize the fourth industrial revolution in manufacturing.
Sigma Labs’ global client base includes 23 installations across 19 different users. Tier-1 OEM enterprises and end-users such as Siemens, Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney and others are currently evaluating PrintRite3D® for production lines.
John Rice, CEO and chairman of the board of directors, has extensive experience as a CEO, lead negotiator, turnaround expert, business financier and crisis management executive/consultant. Prior to becoming chair and CEO of Sigma Labs, he was the CEO of a successful turn-around of a Coca-Cola Bottling Company.

Willow Biosciences Inc. (CSE: WLLW) (OTCQB: CANSF)
Willow Biosciences Inc. (CSE: WLLW) (OTCQB: CANSF) was featured today in a publication from CBDWire, examining how, with demand for the hemp extract at an all-time high, tons of CBD sellers have flooded the market looking to cash in on the insane demand.
Willow Biosciences Inc. (CSE: WLLW) (OTCQB: CANSF) is a leading developer of biosynthetic production systems for high-value, plant-derived active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) and intermediates. The company’s cannabidiol (“CBD”) yeast-based biosynthesis program produces a high yield, ultrapure, low-cost and scalable manufacturing solution for pharmaceutical, food, beverage and personal care consumers of CBD.
The company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Willow’s proprietary yeast-based lab strains produce CBD, tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), and cannabigerol (“CBG”), as well as certain minor and novel cannabinoids.
The company’s expertise in the esoteric field of biosynthesis and in delivering commercial fermentation pathways for the production of pharmaceutical-grade compounds grew from its origins in opiate research. Willow recently delivered a de novo biosynthesis pathway in yeast for thebaine, a key precursor API used as a feedstock in the manufacture of semi-synthetic opiates such as naloxone (used to reverse opioid overdose) and several common analgesics. Led by Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Peter Facchini, Willow’s research team discovered and patented numerous previously unknown genes coding for core catalytic pathway enzymes, as well as a number of additional non-pathway, yet commercially-essential, accessory genes.
Utilizing this proven synthetic biology platform, Willow’s research team has already begun producing cannabinoids at lab scale, using yeast as the host cell “factory.” This biosynthetic fermentation-based process is capable of producing pharmaceutical grade CBD in 10 days – far less time than traditional plant-based extraction methods.
Willow anticipates its technology can be scaled to produce hundreds of kilograms per batch of cannabinoid API at less than $1,000 per kilogram, thus costing approximately 60% less than current chemical synthesis methods and 90% less than conventional plant-based extraction methods.
Willow and Noramco Inc., the world’s largest producer of high-quality synthetic cannabinoid APIs and other controlled substance APIs for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, have an exclusive, worldwide Joint Development Agreement (“JDA”) to design a yeast-based biosynthesis platform for the production and distribution of a highly pure CBD isolate.
The mutually exclusive agreement calls for Willow to be responsible for optimizing yeast strains in a biosynthetic process to generate ultrapure CBD at high yield and substantially lower cost compared to current methods. Noramco will leverage its decades of experience in producing and delivering CBD and pharmaceutical APIs by being responsible for the scale-up, regulatory submission, marketing and distribution of products manufactured under the JDA.
Each company will invest comparable funds, will retain the intellectual property associated with their respective scopes of work and share equally in gross profits from sales of products manufactured under the JDA.
The agreement with Noramco (http://nnw.fm/Mz1vW) addresses the increasing demand for CBD-based APIs and other CBD-infused products by pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, consumer packaged goods, beverages and other industry sectors.
The U.S. market potential of cannabinoids is significant, with industry analysts projecting $50 billion in cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical sales and $16 billion in CBD consumer goods retail sales by 2025. As of June 2019, 34 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands have legalized cannabis for medical use. Another 13 states and territories have approved recreational cannabis for adult use while other states are considering similar measures.
The cannabinoid API market continues to evolve with CBD and other cannabinoid-based treatment options currently in clinical trials for indications such as post-traumatic stress syndrome, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, chronic pain, schizophrenia, cancer treatments and other challenging unmet medical conditions.
Willow is fully funded after raising $29 million via private placement and $8 million in exercised warrants by Tuatara Capital Fund II, L.P. Proceeds of the funding will be used to enhance the existing laboratory space in Calgary and Vancouver, Canada, and in San Francisco, California. The company anticipates exiting 2020 with $15.8 million in cash.
President and CEO Trevor Peters is an experienced executive who co-founded four startup companies in the past 15 years. He has raised over $1 billion in equity and debt financings at various stages of corporate development and has been integral to successful transactions totaling over $4 billion on sale. Mr. Peters previously was chief financial officer at Caracal Energy Inc., which sold to Glencore plc in 2014 for $1.8 billion.
Chief Financial Officer Travis Doupe has over 18 years of experience in financial leadership roles, principally in the international oil and gas industry, where he provided corporate strategic direction while overseeing all aspects of financial operations. Mr. Doupe is the treasurer and a member of the board of directors of the Canada Council for the Americas – Alberta and holds a CA-CPA designation and earned a bachelor’s degree in management from the University of Calgary.
Dr. Peter Facchini, Chief Scientific Officer, has been professor of plant biochemistry in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary since 1995. He is recognized internationally as a leader in plant specialized metabolite biosynthesis. Dr. Facchini is the Canada Research Chair in Plant Metabolic Processes Biotechnology and has published more than 150 research papers and scholarly articles. Dr. Facchini received a PhD from the University of Toronto and conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Kentucky and Université de Montréal.

MCTC is at the cutting-edge of the cannabis industry’s trends with its emphasis on polymeric nanotechnology. This is not to be confused with the more basic oil-in-water nano-emulsions currently marketed to the food and beverage industry. The company’s polymer-based particles offer significant loading of active ingredients and unmatched flexibility and customization, allowing for myriad combinations of cannabinoids with unique performance characteristics. MCTC believes polymeric nanotechnology particles will be a critical technology area for the cannabinoid formulation marketplace.
The company continues to build its R&D program, specifically researching the development of improving methods to make cannabinoids available to living systems. Instrumental in the research program is the development of novel polymeric nanoparticles and nanofibers. These have the potential to elevate the potential of cannabinoid products in the following ways (http://nnw.fm/cK3Bl):
- Significantly improving bioavailability
- Allowing for ultra-high loading rates
- Enhancing customization of cannabinoid combinations
- Improved dosing precision
- Providing more control in release parameters
MCTC leadership understands the importance of developing intellectual property (IP) in the ever-evolving cannabis industry. A recent Forbes article described IP as “critical for creating true differentiation between companies and their product and service offerings” (http://nnw.fm/57Fjh). Recognizing the importance of IP, MCTC has been consistent in its application for patents to protect its innovative nanotechnology applications.
MCTC has now filed four patents on its cannabinoid delivery technology systems:
- The company first collaborated with Cannabis Nanosciences Inc. on technologies. This became the basis for its first patent filing on an innovative edible dissolvable film for cannabinoid ingestion.
- Its second patent filing for cannabinoid nanoparticles combined TPGS, a water-soluble form of vitamin E.
- Its third patent filing involved a unique 4th dimension, 3D printed cannabinoid delivery system for beverages.
- Its fourth patent, considered its most significant, broadly covers many aspects of nanoparticles and nano fibers comprising one or more cannabinoids disposed at least partially within a water-soluble medium.
MCTC collaborated with Marijuana Company Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA) subsidiary hempSmart Inc., under a hemp extract and CBD product supply agreement wherein hempSmart will utilize its extensive network of marketing partners to market MCTC’s powered drink mixes and other CBD edibles online. These products are designed for the dry beverage and edibles sector and will be supplied by MCTC. They incorporate the company’s patent-pending cannabinoid infusion technologies and will be trademarked as Hemp You Can Feel (TM) and Gummies You Can Feel (TM).
MCTC CEO and chairman Arman Tabatabaei boasts 15 years of management and operations experience and is considered an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting, and profit and loss management. He has acted as a consultant with Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTCQB: NUGS) and played an instrumental role in improving operations at Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) relative to the company’s hydroponic growth supplies initiatives.
MCTC founder and director Robert Hymers also brings a seasoned perspective, having had significant experiences in the cannabis industry and as a financial executive and consultant. He is the managing partner of Pinnacle Tax Services in Los Angeles and was previously CFO and director of Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA). He is currently a member of the Strategic Advisory Board at Massroots Inc. and acts as a consultant to both Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. and Sugarmade Inc. Hymers’ background in tax accounting, auditing, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance has immense value in his current position at MCTC Holdings.
MCTC Holdings Inc. (MCTC), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.39, off by 10.3448%, on 2,867 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 12,594 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.075000002/$3.00.

Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSXV: WNDR) (OTC: WDRFF)
When My Big Fat Greek Wedding landed in theaters nearly 20 years ago, the inauspicious film centered on ethnic minority tropes was met by underwhelming praise from reviewers, one of whom noted the “slight but agreeable comedy” … “lacks cinematic flair. It looks (http://nnw.fm/BwR8k) more like a film designed for the small screen. But … it has a good-natured personality.” Thanks to the mutable nature of the Internet, a modern updating of the review adds that the film “became an unexpected theatrical hit,” gaining a reputation as the second highest-grossing American romantic comedy in film history (http://nnw.fm/Cr59Y). The movie parlayed the production company’s $5 million budget into about $250 million (inflation-adjusted to $368.7 million) in revenues, and in the process helped establish a business model that British Columbia-based film production house Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSX.V: WNDR) (OTCQB: WDRFF)is taking all the way to the bank.
Wonderfilm Media Corporation (TSXV: WNDR) (OTC: WDRFF) main business is the worldwide production of high-quality feature films and episodic television.

Wonderfilm Global Distribution
At the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Wonderfilm officially launched Wonderfilm Global, a new film, television and media foreign sales/distribution joint venture with 101 Films and Paul McGowan.
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.

Endonovo Therapeutics Inc. (ENDV)
Endonovo Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ENDV) ("Endonovo" or the "Company"), announced today it has determined to effect a 1-for-1,000 reverse stock split of the Company’s issued common shares. The reverse stock split will take effect, and the Company's common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the OTCQB, after the reverse split has completed FINRA review under the existing ticker symbol "ENDVD".
Endonovo Therapeutics Inc. (ENDV) develops, manufactures and distributes evolutionary medical devices focused on the rapid healing of wounds and reduction of pain, edema and inflammation on and in the human body. These wearable, non-invasive medical devices are designed to deliver the company’s proprietary, patent protected Electroceutical™ Therapy targeting inflammation, cardiovascular diseases, chronic kidney disease and central nervous system (“CNS”) disorders.
In accord with its mission to transform the field of medicine through innovation, Endonovo’s bioelectric Electroceutical™ devices harness bioelectricity to restore key electrochemical processes that initiate anti-inflammatory processes and growth factors in the body necessary for healing to rapidly occur. Endonovo’s current portfolio of commercial-stage devices address chronic kidney disease, liver disease non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), cardiovascular and peripheral artery disease (PAD), and ischemic stroke.
SofPulse® Electroceutical ™ Therapy is an easy-to-place, non-invasive device that delivers pulsed electromagnetic frequencies to enhance post-surgical recovery. Used as a stand-alone therapy or integrated into any treatment protocol, SofPulse®’s targeted pulsed electromagnetic field (tPEMF) transmits gentle pulses to the tissue causing a positive biological effect to help reduce swelling and accelerate the body’s natural recovery process. The low levels of electromagnetic fields are completely safe and are 1000 times lower than those emitted by a mobile phone.
Because SofPulse® lessens the pain of post-surgical recovery, the patient requires far less prescription medications, thereby minimizing or eliminating the adverse side effects of narcotics and anti-inflammatory medication. Studies have shown a greater than 2.2-fold reduction in narcotic use over the first 48 hours post-procedure. Patients with less pain and medication may move around sooner, which further stimulates the body’s natural response to healing.
Endonovo’s Electroceutical™ Therapy is cleared by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the palliative treatment of pain and post-surgical edema (swelling) and is CE-marked in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) for the promotion of wound healing and the palliative treatment of pain and post-surgical edema.
