Leading Edge Materials Corp. (LEMIF)

InvestorsHub and Stockhouse reported on Leading Edge Materials Corp. (LEMIF), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Leading Edge Materials Corp. acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Tasman Metals Ltd. via a plan of arrangement in August of 2016. The primary assets of the Company are in Scandinavia. Its core investments are matched to high growth markets, linked to the global shift to low-carbon energy generation and energy storage. The Company’s emphasis is on graphite, lithium, cobalt, rare earth elements (REEs), and tungsten. It has strong links to European research and innovation. OTCQB-listed, Leading Edge Materials is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Company’s assets and research focus are towards the raw materials for Li-ion batteries (graphite, lithium, high purity aluminium); materials for high thermal efficiency building products (graphite, silica, nepheline); and materials that improve the efficiency of energy generation (dysprosium, neodymium, hafnium).

Leading Edge Materials has 100 percent ownership of the fully permitted Woxna graphite facility. Additionally, the Company has 100 percent ownership of the Norra Karr rare earth element (REE) project.

Woxna is a fully permitted site. It has an open pit mine, a graphite processing facility, as well as a tailings storage dam already built. The site is currently permitted to feed 100,000 ton of graphitic rock per year. This allows for the production of roughly 10,000 tons of graphite concentrate. In July 2014, the Company commenced graphite production at the Woxna Graphite project.

Norra Kärr is one of the world’s main heavy REE resources. Norra Kärr is in southern Sweden, about 300 km SW of Stockholm. It has an unusual enrichment in the most critical REEs: dysprosium (Dy), terbium (Tb) and yttrium (Y).

This past January, Leading Edge Materials reported the final set of results from the second program of drilling completed at its 100 percent owned Bergby lithium project in Sweden. Drilling intersected regular high lithium grades. Also, drilling was notable for considerably increased tantalum grades versus previous drill holes.

Key results include BBY17025 intersecting 5.1m @ 361ppm Ta2O5 (tantalum oxide) from 25.1m depth; BBY17026 intersecting 2.8m @ 297ppm Ta2O5 from 49.2m depth; and BBY17030 intersecting 5.4m @ 1.60% Li2O, 155ppm Ta2O5 from 25.0m depth.

Key results also include BBY17031 intersecting 4.5m @ 1.31% Li2O, 164ppm Ta2O5 from 71.5m depth. Moreover, BBY17033 intersected 3.0m @ 1.33% Li2O, from 52.8m depth.

Leading Edge Materials is an active raw material industry representative within the EU Battery Alliance. This Alliance consists of greater than 50 of Europe's strongest corporate voices within the developing lithium ion battery sector, plus manifold support and government agencies. Leading Edge Materials is the only potential supplier of natural graphite anode material within the Alliance. This allowed its voice to be clearly heard concerning the sustainable supply of European raw materials.

Today, Leading Edge Materials provided an update on the first of a range of research projects targeted at capturing added value opportunities for the Norra Kärr rare earth element (REE) project in Sweden. A Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) completed on Norra Kärr in 2015 identified a variety of opportunities to improve project economics while lessening capital expenditure (Capex) and minimizing the environmental footprint of the project.

The Company has partnered with a research team lead by Prof. Julien Leclaire at the Institut de Chimie et Biochimie Moléculaires et Supramoléculaires (ICBMS) in Lyon, France. This partnership is to investigate the extraction and separation of hafnium and zirconium from a process material formerly considered to be waste.

Vycor Medical, Inc. (VYCO)

PennyStockScholar, FeedBlitz, OTCtipReporter, and Wall Street Resources reported earlier on Vycor Medical, Inc. (VYCO), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

OTCQB-listed, Vycor Medical, Inc. is a provider of distinct and first-class surgical and therapeutic solutions. The Company operates two business units - Vycor Medical and NovaVision. Both of these business units adopt a minimally or non-invasive approach. Vycor Medical has U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for brain and spine surgeries and regulatory approvals for brain in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe (EU – Class III), Korea, Japan, Russia, and Taiwan. Vycor Medical is based in Boca Raton, Florida.

The Company’s NovaVision provides non-invasive, computer-based rehabilitation targeted at a substantial and largely un-addressed market of people who have lost their sight because of stroke or brain injury. The NovaVision business unit develops and provides science-driven neurostimulation therapy and other medical technologies. This helps improve and partially restore sight in patients with neurological vision impairments.

Vycor Medical’s ViewSite™ Surgical Access Systems (VBAS) is a suite of clear cylindrical minimally invasive disposable devices. These have the potential for quicker, safer, and also more economical brain surgeries, as well as faster patient discharge.

The design of VBAS is to optimize neurosurgical site access and reduce patient risk. In addition, the design of VBAS is to expedite recovery and add tangible value to the professional medical community.

The Company’s proprietary Visual Restoration Therapy® (VRT) platform is clinically supported to improve lost vision resulting from stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), or other acquired brain injuries. VRT is the only FDA 510K cleared medical device in the United States targeted at the restoration of vision for neurologically induced vision loss.

Vycor Medical has developed NeuroEyeCoach™. This is a therapy that is highly complementary to VRT™. NeuroEyeCoach™ is a compensation therapy registered in the United States as a Class I 510(k) exempt device. The design of NeuroEyeCoach is to improve a patient's ability to scan their environment more efficiently. NeuroEyeCoach is NovaVision's eye movement compensation therapy for patients who have suffered a cerebral visual field disorder due to a stroke or brain injury.

In August, Vycor Medical reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017. The Company’s Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were $736,000 versus $779,000 for the same period the year prior.

Hummingbird Resources PLC (HUMRF)

MarketWatch, YCharts, Stockhouse, Mining Stock Valuator, 4-Traders, WalletInvestor, Barchart, Malibu Report, and Wallstreet Online reported on Hummingbird Resources PLC (HUMRF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Hummingbird Resources PLC is an emerging + 100,000 oz gold producer based in London, England. The Company has successfully built and commissioned its high-grade Yanfolila Gold Project in Mali. Hummingbird Resources’ team has 124 years experience in Africa on 61 projects, as well as 143 years operational experience. The Company’s aim is to become a substantial mid-tier producer.

Since its IPO (Initial Public Offering), Hummingbird Resources has considerably increased its worldwide resource inventory from an initial 0.8Moz to 6.4Moz across two countries, Mali and Liberia. The Company initially focused most of its resources on the Dugbe Gold Project in Liberia following the low-cost acquisition of Gold Fields’ gold assets in Mali in 2014. The Dugbe Gold Project is the largest known gold deposit in the nation.

Hummingbird has subsequently refocused its attention on the high grade Yanfolila Gold Project. Nonetheless, the Dugbe Gold Project remains an important component of the Company’s portfolio. Hummingbird Resources published a positive PEA (Preliminary Economic Assessment) in April of 2013. It is currently making progress with its Detailed Feasibility Study (FS).

The Yanfolila Gold Mine is situated in southern Mali. Yanfolila is a low cost, high grade open pit mining operation. It poured first gold in December of 2017.

The 2018 Exploration Program for the Yanfolila Gold Mine is targeting +50,000 m drilling at 6 deposits to convert an additional 400,000 ozs to Reserves. The Deposit is open on strike and at depth.

Regarding Yanfolila, the 2018 guidance is 105 - 115 KOZ.
Expansion is from the Gonka Deposit. There is the potential to increase production, as well as considerable life of mine extension potential.

In addition, Hummingbird Resources has a 34 percent stake in Cora Gold. Cora has its Sanankoro gold discovery: potential for a 1Moz+ standalone mine development. Stage 1 drilling is complete at the Sanankoro gold discovery with new targets identified and very encouraging high-grade gold intercepts.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (OTC: TGODF).

Cannabis-focused research and development company The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) today announced the launch of its new and comprehensive experiential patient and consumer website designed to deliver the ultimate online cannabis experience. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/yE9vM.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

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

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

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) was featured in a report today from CannabisNewsWire examining how one of the stereotypes that surround marijuana consumers is that they become forgetful when high on cannabis. However, a new study at the University of Florida has established that such a stereotype is just a myth.

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 $1.09, up 2.83%, on 55,125 volume with 94 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 206,650 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.775/$2.54.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF).

Premium cannabis producer 7ACRES, a wholly-owned subsidiary and flagship brand of The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1), now wears the mantle of ‘Brand of the Year’ after being recognized on December 3 at the 2018 Canadian Cannabis Awards presented by Lift & Co. (TSX.V: LIFT) in Toronto, Canada. 7ACRES was selected for the honor by a panel of industry professionals across a variety of sectors in the cannabis space, a news release states (http://nnw.fm/gLZh6).

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”

Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.

In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.

“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”

The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.

Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.

7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.

Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.

Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.

To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.

Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF), closed the day's trading session at $1.0604, up 0.69%, on 177,479 volume with 221 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 711,020 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.94/$2.79.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

The legal cannabis industry now has simple banking options thanks to Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG). According to the company, it is the only one offering licensed providers the ability to apply for a bank account online. In an industry with limited to no banking options, REFG is providing the accessibility and protection necessary for licensed cannabis companies to succeed.

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 $0.025, up 27.88%, on 536,045 volume with 47 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 397,279 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0127/$0.092.

Aziza Project LLC

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Aziza Project LLC.

The Aziza Project navigated several regulatory hurdles on its way to being one of the first security token offerings (“STOs”) in the hydrocarbon resource sector. A recent market shift aligns the company for even more success. To view the full article, visit http://ibn.fm/dtXSa.

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 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 Coins

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 Visionaries

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.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA).

CannabisNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled “Political Breakthrough Heralds the End of the Prohibition on Hemp,” featuring Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA). To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/3DVew. To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/vQ9t8. Also today, MCOA was featured in a report today from CannabisNewsWire examining how one of the stereotypes that surround marijuana consumers is that they become forgetful when high on cannabis. However, a new study at the University of Florida has established that such a stereotype is just a myth.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.

The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.

The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.

The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.

Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program. Through hempSMART, MCOA’s strategic approach to the distribution of products is through a networking architecture geared to maintain customer loyalty and capture market share. The patent-pending product “hempSMART Brain,” is designed to revolutionize the safe and effective support of healthy brain function. The brand new product, HempSMART DROPS, is a full-spectrum CBD tincture formulated with hemp and fractionated coconut oils. The hempSMART marketing team has decades of experience, and is well positioned to take the hempSMART brand to a global audience.

Technology and investment company SinglePoint (OTCQB: SING) was featured on this week’s episode of MoneyTV with Donald Baillargeon. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/qNh7M.

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.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD).

With floor votes passing this week in the House of Representatives and the Senate, the chances that the Farm Bill – H.R.2, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 – will be law before Yuletide have improved considerably. Such a development augurs well for Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD), a company focused on supplying equipment and technologies to support the legal cultivation, processing and storage of cannabis and other agricultural products, which recently made a substantial investment in the hemp space.

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.

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.

Management

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.

Continuous ad blocking rule updates are delivered via an Intellectual Property Cloud-based autonomous engine with ad blocking tracker and malware detection filters.

Cyberfort recently signed a letter of intent to acquire Just Content Software which includes the Just Content app, software and underlying source code. Just Content is an efficacious and multi-functional ad blocking app that safeguards families and businesses with proprietary “Home Safe Filter” and “Business Filter” products. The Just Content app is available on iTunes and protects against unsafe links, adult content, phishing sites and inflammatory hate speech found on the internet, among other potential backdoor attacks and cyberthreats. A due diligence review is underway and a final determination regarding this acquisition is anticipated within weeks.

“Cyberfort aims to become a leader in developing cutting edge ad-blocking protective software that keeps the internet safe for families and business, which in our highly technological and immediate information-access society is a significant concern. Acquiring Just Content furthers our commitment to provide the best and most effective ad-blocking software in the marketplace,” says Cyberfort CEO Daniel Cattlin.

Favorable government regulations promoting tightened web security is a major factor driving adoption of web content filtering solution along with the public’s growing desire to better manage network bandwidth consumption and protect their online security and privacy. Cyberfort’s objective is to protect the data and integrity of personal and business computing assets and defend those assets against any threat or attack. The company’s software also offers symbiotic ad-blocking capabilities to complement its cyber defense effectiveness.

As Cyberfort continues to innovate, the Vivio team intends to leverage the current user base as a sandbox to test and optimize future incremental developments targeting an enterprise suite of tools that can be integrated into sector specific areas of growth. Key areas of focus include mobile device management, bring your own device (“BYOD”), mobile app management and secure mobile browser.

The Cyberfort leadership team is headlined by Cattlin, who offers a new age perspective to the business with expertise in project and asset management and a background in corporate finance. Cattlin brings both the operational and financial understanding to take companies from start-up and early development to expansion and capital growth within a public environment.

Chief Technology Officer Tomas Mistrik helped his team deliver a variety of technological products including the Vivio ad-blocking app for iOS 10 and the Silicon Valley-based Synergykit platform for mobile developers.

Technology Development Manager Krishna Kumar brings more than 10 years of experience in the Information Technology industry where he provided powerful security and ad-blocking measures for companies such as CSC and PayPal India.

Senior Advisor Harish Doddala brings nine years of product management and software engineering experience, delivering results for Cisco, VMware, Oracle, IBM and Siemens.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS).

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS), headquartered in Los Angeles, California, is focused on supporting entrepreneurial growth within the fast-growing legal cannabis sector. Through a selective portfolio of subsidiaries, Cannabis Strategic Ventures offers outsourced personnel solutions tailor-made to match the growth dynamics of cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, dispensaries and other cannabis marketplace participants. The company also pursues investment opportunities in the areas of real estate, cultivation, extraction, distribution, packaging, dispensary operations, and branded products within the cannabis space.

The legalization of adult-use sales in California is expected to create nearly 99,000 cannabis industry jobs in the state by 2021, representing about a third of all cannabis jobs nationwide, and 146,000 jobs overall when indirect and induced efforts are considered, according to Arcview Market Research. By 2021, direct cannabis industry employment will top 291,500 FTE jobs, with a total employment effect of nearly 414,000 FTEs across all legal cannabis states, according to the report.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures believes its staffing capabilities will be in a similar state of demand. The company in April 2018 completed a definitive agreement to acquire Worldwide Staffing Group, Inc., which booked approximately $1.5 million in revenues in 2017.

Worldwide will operate within Cannabis Strategic Ventures as an independent and separate wholly owned subsidiary providing strictly non-cannabis related employment and staffing services.

The acquisition includes all intellectual properties, including formulations and technologies, and related accessories of Pure Applied Sciences.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures Pure Applied Sciences subsidiary, has a cannabis concentrate extraction services agreement with CP Logistics LLC (“CPL”), a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of Sunniva Inc. (CSE:SNN) (OTCQX:SNNVF). Under this agreement, CPL will perform white label services producing high quality, ultra-purified cannabis extracts out of its Sun-Oil Facility in Cathedral City, California, for Pure Applied Sciences under the Pure Organix brand name.
