Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (SDIG)

The crypto biosphere is new on the horizon as China becomes a blockchain technology pioneer. While the United States fixates on taming the “rogue aspects of the crypto industry” within its borders, China has announced its intentions to launch its National Blockchain innovation hub in Beijing.

China Daily reported that the Chinese authorities established the center to experiment as well as develop technological blockchain innovations while maintaining an embargo on crypto currencies. The Science & Technology ministry of the country approved the center, saying the center will liaise with think tanks, local universities and blockchain enterprises to create a network to discover more abouto core blockchain capabilities. This center will specialize in the fundamental theories of blockchain and blockchain software and hardware, in addition to developing meaningful technologies for industrial applications.

The center will also pay attention to advancing technology that’s applicable in the country’s economy, as well as help cement blockchain as China’s base for digital infrastructure. The discoveries made will build China’s blockchain segment and expand its digitization.

Beijing Academy of Blockchain & Edge Computing (BABEC), known for the development of ChainMaker blockchain, was assigned the task of operating the new tech center, funded by a conglomerate of Chinese state-owned businesses, including China’s Construction Bank and China Unicom.

In February, the BABEC team disclosed the completion of computer cluster “Hive” on the ChainMaker, which enables domestically developed blockchain networks to synthesize 240M transactions every second (TPS). The ChainMaker has been deployed in a number of industries, including tax services, digital ID systems, and state services as well as supply chain financing. The launching of this innovation center underscores China’s desire to develop a blockchain having Chinese characteristics while the country seeks to advance as well as amalgamate blockchain technology outside of crypto, which is deemed a risk to China’s financial biosphere.

China leads in Central Bank Digital Currency development, with its digital yuan now in circulation in 17 of the country’s provinces, serving about 5.6 million merchants. In January, the People’s Bank of China updated information about this project, revealing that it will continue spreading out its pilot program.

In the end, the Chinese central bank will create a system that users could scan with a code and entrepreneurs can support business transactions with minimal costs to their clients. There were close to 200 digital yuan transactions across the country during the Spring Festival when China marked the lunar new year. This translated to more than 180 million e-CNY ($26.6 million).

As more institutional and nation-level players enter the blockchain space, more people are likely to pick interest in existing enterprises such as Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (NASDAQ: SDIG) as public mistrust of the new technology dissipates.

Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (SDIG), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.61, up 29.9255%, on 4,897,441 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 541,146 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.40/$14.43.

Coal is the sole largest source of carbon dioxide emissions from energy. This cheap fuel is also the primary fuel used in electricity generation globally. If we are to make headway in controlling the climate crisis, the use of coal must decrease significantly. This may not be easy as it sounds, however, especially because energy security is a vital part of the global economy.

So, how can we phase out the use of coal in favor of clean energy without running into any short-term energy issues? Below are a few suggestions from the International Energy Agency (IEA) on how this can be done.

  • The best time to start is now

Decarbonizing various sectors by significantly reducing coal-related emissions should be the first priority. The use of coal varies from one country to another, with the biggest consumers of the fuel being China, India, the United States, Germany, Russia, Japan and South Africa.

Given that coal made up more than 35% of all electricity generation in 2021, we have a lot to do, especially if we are to meet the targets set in the 2015 Paris Agreement.

  • Ramp-up generation of clean energy and infrastructure

Countries should focus on building infrastructure for the generation of clean energy from solar, geothermal and wind while those with existing infrastructure should focus on scaling up energy generation. The increasing use of cleaner energies, especially when provided at a subsidized rate, will significantly decrease the use of coal.

  • Introducing innovative financial strategies to speed up transition

Establishing the right policy frameworks and directing investments into the right channels to fund the transition to clean energy while also meeting the growing demand will help speed the transition and help enable change.

  • Restricting development of new coal-fired power plants

The IEA highlights the need to stop approving the construction of new coal plants while also slowing new projects. The agency also notes that the remaining plants will greatly benefit from carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies, which reduce the emissions from coal.

  • Find and implement solutions to reduce emissions in the short-term

Industries such as the steel and cement industries are far from ditching the use of coal completely, especially since there are currently no clean alternatives. In the short-term, increasing efficiency and switching fuels may help mitigate emissions. It should be noted, however, that new technologies will be needed in the long-term.

Additionally, public financial support, global cooperation and well-designed integrated approaches that incorporate the need for people-centered transitions are key components needed to successfully phase out the use of coal.

As the world gradually transitions away from coal, extraction companies such as Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) may have to pivot and evolve in order to remain relevant amid a shift away from coal.

Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (ARLP), closed Wednesday's trading session at $21.54, up 1.9886%, on 541,146 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 35.187M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $12.60/$27.63.

In order to power the future generation of electric cars, the Audi company recently teamed up with Redwood Materials to gather all batteries that can be recharged from consumer cell phones, laptops, and other everyday electronics. No less than 10 Audi dealers across the United States have made the decision to take part in the effort, with the company hoping that additional dealers will join in the months to come.

Consumers drop off the devices at dealer stores; the devices are then transported to Redwood establishments in Nevada to be sorted, recycled and rebuilt to produce lithium and cobalt — the two metals needed for the production of electric vehicle batteries.

The demand for lithium, cobalt and nickel minerals, which are mined from foreign mines with negative human and environmental impacts, has increased as more people gain interest in electric vehicles.

According to Alexis Georgeson, if consumer rechargeable batteries are recycled, this can lessen the forceful mining of the crucial minerals and aid in local production that satisfies the objectives of the government as well as those of the car manufacturers. While speaking to ABC News, Georgeson said the largest market for li-ion gadgets is the United States, where consumers are eager to replace these devices.

Redwood is also responsible for recycling lithium batteries from cars that have reached the end of their useful lives in order to extract the crucial minerals that are then reproduced into cathodes, a critical component in electric vehicle batteries. In addition, Redwood remanufactures anode oil from scrap metal obtained from Tesla’s Nevada gigafactory.

The possibility for recycling is enormous, since there is a rising need for automakers to incorporate recycled material in their automobiles in order to enjoy the new tax credit for electric vehicles that is dependent on automakers that source their metal components locally, whether through local mining or local recycling.

According to Redwood, in a li-ion battery, elements including lithium, cobalt, nickel, aluminum, copper and graphite can typically be recovered at a rate of above 95%. These resources can be subsequently used to create batteries for future EVs, returning straight to the supply network.

The United States chooses not to rely on other countries, such as China, to fulfill its environmental aspirations. However, recycled components currently account for only 20% of the world’s need for lithium and cobalt.

According to experts, local mines in Northern America must be located. The entire globe has adequate resources to sustain the expansion of electric vehicles by numerous startups such as NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO) if miners can extract minerals more safely without harming the ecosystem.

NIO Inc. (NIO), closed Wednesday's trading session at $10.5, up 1.8429%, on 35,925,516 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 35,115 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $8.375/$26.27.

Field Trip Health Ltd. (FTHWF)

We reported earlier on Field Trip Health Ltd. (FTHWF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Psychedelics have become very popular amid the reform movement. Legislators in different states across the country have even introduced measures to decriminalize and legalize psychedelics in an effort to stop criminalizing individuals over these drugs as well as allow their recreational and medicinal use.

Numerous studies have shown that psychedelics such as psilocybin and MDMA could be useful in the treatment of mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Below, we look at some of the latest developments on policy reform in different states thus far.

  • Missouri

Last week, Senator Thompson Rehder introduced a measure that would promote studies into the therapeutic potential of alternative therapies and drugs such as ketamine, MDMA and psilocybin.

The research would focus on the use of these psychedelics in end-of-life care as well as in the treatment of substance use disorder, treatment resistant depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The initiative also asks that the state’s Department of Health and Senior Services work with a VA medical center and a state-based hospital to conduct the studies.

Representative Tony Lovasco, another legislator in the state, also filed a resolution in January that would ensure that patients with serious mental health conditions have access to psilocybin.

  • Iowa

Representative Jeff Shipley of Iowa recently reintroduced a measure that would eliminate psilocyn and psilocybin from the state’s list of controlled substances. If approved, this decision would effectively legalize the substances.

The legislator introduced an identical bill in 2021. However, the bill was not approved after it stalled in the legislative committee.

  • Utah

Senate Minority Leader Luz Escamilla recently introduced an initiative that would legalize the administration of psilocybin therapy to individuals aged 21 and above. If approved, persons receiving hospice care or those diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, treatment-resistant anxiety and depression can access the treatment in a clinical setting.

Under this initiative, the Department of Health and Human Services would be responsible for the registration of psilocybin therapy providers and medical providers, while the Department of Agriculture and Food would be tasked with the regulation of production facilities that distributed the hallucinogenic mushrooms.

These are just a few of the psychedelic reform bills filed these past few weeks in the country.

In Virginia, a measure to set up a psilocybin advisory board and reschedule the substance to a lower classification under the state’s statute was approved by the Virginia Senate. And in Hawaii, the Senate recently advanced a measure to conduct research on psilocybin’s therapeutic benefits.

As these efforts to reform drug laws gather steam, for-profit companies such as Field Trip Health Ltd. (OTC: FTHWF) (TSX: FTHW) are hard at work developing therapeutics that will meet the rigorous requirements of the FDA before they gain approval for use by patients experiencing the indications for which the medications were developed.

Field Trip Health Ltd. (FTHWF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.072, even for the day, on 35,115 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1.044M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0177/$0.50.

This low-cost production facility is currently on standby, maintained in a state of readiness to respond to expected increases in demand.

In addition to being the largest uranium miner in the U.S., Energy Fuels’ overall portfolio also includes a pipeline of high-quality, large-scale exploration and development projects that are permitted or are in advanced stages of permitting, as well as an industry-leading U.S. NI 43-101 Mineral Resource portfolio.

FACTOID: Energy Fuels has led industry efforts over the past two-plus years to get the U.S. government to recognize the importance of domestically produced uranium, including the 2018 – 2019 Uranium Section 232, the ongoing Nuclear Fuel Working Group and the recently announced creation of the U.S. strategic uranium reserve. The U.S. is by far the largest consumer of uranium in the world, yet we import almost all of our requirements; Energy Fuels aims to change that.

Nuclear Market Potential

Multiple studies in top scientific journals have shown that nuclear power is cleanest and most economical way to produce reliable electricity as worldwide demand continues to soar. Nuclear power is presently the only available and affordable low-carbon power source that can meet both current and future baseload electricity demands while simultaneously reducing air pollution and mitigating climate change. U.S. nuclear power plants currently generate nearly 20% of the nation’s electricity overall and 55% of its carbon‐free electricity and even a modest increase in electricity demand would require significant new nuclear capacity by 2025. According to the World Nuclear Association (WNA), there are currently 441 operable reactors, with another 54 units under construction and 439 in various stages of planning; in addition, the WNA has identified a potentially massive supply/demand gap through 2040 of 1 billion pounds. These factors among others are expected to significantly drive increased demand for uranium.

Reasons Nuclear is Gaining Traction

  • Nuclear reactors emit no greenhouse gases during operation. Over their full lifetimes, they result in comparable emissions to renewable forms of energy such as wind and solar.
  • Unlike any other form of energy, the waste from nuclear energy is contained and managed securely. Used fuel is currently being safely stored for ultimate disposal or future reprocessing, and 96% of this waste can potentially be recycled.
  • Greater demand for clean electricity to power everything from homes to automobiles, reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

No. 1 U.S. Producer of Vanadium in 2019

Energy Fuels also produces vanadium as a byproduct of uranium production. Vanadium is designated a critical mineral, essential to the economic and national security of the United States. Energy Fuels was the largest producer of vanadium in the U.S. in 2019, and has significant high-grade, in-ground vanadium resources, as well as a separate high-purity vanadium production circuit at their White Mesa Mill, which is also the only conventional vanadium mill in the country. Crucial for use in the steel, aerospace, and chemical industries, vanadium plays a critical role in the production of high-strength and light-weight metallic alloys and demand is expected to increase across the globe.

Energy Fuels has several fully permitted and developed standby mines containing large quantities of high-grade vanadium, along with uranium, including:

  • La Sal Complex (Utah)
  • Whirlwind Mine (Colorado/Utah)
  • Rim Mine (Colorado)

Vanadium has also gained increased attention as a catalyst in next-generation high-capacity, “community-scale” batteries used for energy storage generated from renewable sources. Demand is only expected to grow as this market expands. With recent upgrades in its vanadium production operations, in 2019 Energy Fuels produced commercial levels of the highest purity (99.7%) vanadium in the mill’s history and can rapidly adjust production to meet volatile market conditions. Energy Fuels is one of the very few known avenues that provides investors access the vanadium market.

Rare Earth Element (REE) Production, Alternate Feed Material Recycling, and Land Cleanup

The White Mesa Mill also provides the company with diverse cashflow generating opportunities. Security of supply for Rare Earth Elements (REEs) supporting U.S. military and defense requirements is a major issue today. Energy Fuels has been approached by a number of entities, including the U.S. government, inquiring about the potential to process certain REEs at the mill. The White Mesa Mill is currently licensed to process certain REEs, including tantalum and niobium. And, early indications are that the mill can be utilized to produce several other REEs. The White Mesa Mill is also the only facility in North America licensed and capable of recycling alternate feed materials (AFMs). AFMs are essentially low-level waste materials that contain recoverable quantities of natural (or unenriched) uranium. The Company typically generates between $5 and $15 million per year from AFM recycling. Finally, Energy Fuels is seeking to become involved in the cleanup of legacy Cold War era uranium mines in the Four Corners region of the U.S., including on the Navajo Nation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has access to over $1.5 billion for the cleanup of just a fraction of the sites on the Navajo Nation. The White Mesa Mill is fully licensed to receive much of this material, we are one of the government’s lowest cost options, and we have the ability to recycle the material and produce usable uranium from it.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV).

BiondVax (NASDAQ: BVXV), a biotechnology company focused on developing, manufacturing andcommercializing innovative immunotherapeutic products primarily forthe treatment of infectious and autoimmune diseases, recentlyachieved key milestones. These include the demonstration ofstatistically significant positive results from a preclinicalin-vivo proof-of-concept study of its inhaled anti-COVID-19nanosized antibodies (“NanoAbs”). “Its lead NanoAb candidate,designed to treat COVID-19, has exhibited significant competitiveadvantages over existing oral therapies and monoclonal antibodies(‘mAbs’),” a recent article reads. “In the aforementioned study,BiondVax found that COVID-19-infected Syrian hamsters treated withits inhaled anti-COVID-19 NanoAb candidate had an average weightloss of 3.80% compared to 12.01% for the control group of animalstreated with placebo. In addition to the weight, researchers alsotracked eight additional parameters, including but not limited tosocial behaviors and heart rate, which suggested that the inhaledNanoAb therapy resulted in milder and shorter illness.” To view thefull article, visit

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative products for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases and other illnesses.

In collaboration with the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences (MPG) and the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG), both in Germany, BiondVax is developing a pipeline of innovative nanosized antibody (NanoAb) therapies addressing diseases underserved by current treatments and with large and growing markets, such as COVID-19, asthma and psoriasis.

NanoAbs, also known as VHH-antibodies or Nanobodies, are alpaca-derived nanosized antibodies that exhibit multiple significant competitive advantages over existing antibody therapies, including stability at high temperatures, superior binding affinity, more effective and convenient routes of administration and efficient production. BiondVax is uniquely positioned to advance nanosized antibody innovation from R&D through commercialization.

The company’s highly experienced and successful pharmaceutical industry leadership team includes former senior executives from Novartis, GSK and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Since its founding, BiondVax has executed eight clinical trials, including a seven-country, 12,400-participant Phase 3 trial of a prior influenza vaccine candidate, and it built, owns and operates a 20,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art GMP biologics manufacturing facility housing its laboratories, production facilities and offices.

Lead Candidate: Inhaled COVID-19 NanoAb

In December 2021, BiondVax signed definitive agreements with the Max Planck Society – parent organization of the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences– and the UMG to enter a strategic collaboration for the development and commercialization of innovative COVID-19 NanoAbs.

The company is planning a rapid development path that leverages its expertise and capabilities in biological drug development and manufacturing. BiondVax anticipates preclinical proof-of-concept results for an inhaled COVID-19 NanoAb by the end of 2022, with initial Phase 1/2a human clinical trial results expected in 2023.

The intended inhaled mechanism of delivery of BiondVax’s COVID-19 NanoAb formulation may serve as a significant differentiator when compared to approved monoclonal antibodies, which are injected. Inhaled delivery has shown to be cheaper, more convenient and likely safer for patients and providers.

NanoAb Pipeline: Psoriasis, Asthma and More

The COVID-19 NanoAb development agreement is part of a broader five-year research collaboration agreement signed in March 2022 covering discovery, development and commercialization of NanoAbs for several other disease indications with large market medical needs, including asthma, psoriasis, macular degeneration and psoriatic arthritis.

BiondVax has an exclusive worldwide license for development and commercialization of COVID-19 NanoAbs and exclusive options for similar worldwide licenses for NanoAbs for the above mentioned additional large market disorders currently underserved by approved therapeutic antibodies.

Academic research teams from MPG and UMG have verified strong affinity by the new NanoAbs to their biological target molecules and high thermostability. They have also demonstrated strong neutralization by several NanoAb candidates of their respective target molecules. Neutralization studies of the other NanoAbs are expected to begin later in 2022.

Based on the promising results, BiondVax will focus development efforts beginning with the following NanoAbs:

  • NanoAbs targeting IL-17 as drug candidates for the potential treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis
  • NanoAbs targeting IL-13 and NanoAbs targeting TSLP as drug candidates for the potential treatment of asthma

These are conditions for which the antibody target is validated by existing treatments and the mechanism of action is well understood. Both represent large medical needs and growing markets. BiondVax anticipates preclinical proof-of-concept for at least one of these NanoAbs in 2023. This is in addition to the aforementioned human clinical Phase 1/2a for the inhaled COVID-19 NanoAb therapy, which is also anticipated in 2023.

Market Opportunity

COVID-19 treatment, target of the company’s lead NanoAb therapy candidate, had an estimated market size of $22 billion in 2021.

Future BiondVax drug candidates will target conditions with large markets growing at attractive CAGRs.

The global asthma treatment market was valued at $18.08 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach $26.01 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period, according to Fortune Business Insights.

  • Recently, the California Department of Cannabis Control soughtthe legal opinion of the state Attorney General’s office onwhether or not interstate cannabis commerce will be viable,given the signing of a state bill to allow the transportationand distribution of cannabis products to other states
  • Should the letter yield a positive opinion, legal interstatecannabis commerce could be a game-changer for the Californiacannabis industry

As states, which have been largely responsible for every advance inlegal cannabis, of course, backed by the tolerance of the USDepartment of Justice, continue to evermore inch the industryforward, companies in the space are keenly watching. One of theseis REZYFi, a real estate-oriented mortgage company that primarily targetslicensed and permitted cannabis companies and owners of real estatewho lease to cannabis companies.

Is the Golden State indeed facilitating cannabis cross-statetrading? California marijuana regulators have had extensive discussionswith the state’s attorney general. Top state officials from theCannabis Control Department (DCC) laid out the lawsuit over howCalifornia might avoid federal restrictions if state authoritiesdecide to approve marijuana exports throughout state boundaries inan eight-page memo to the state AG’s office on Jan. 27, 2023.Executives in the cannabis sector and legal professionals expressedtheir opinions about the memo, labeling it a significantdevelopment that, if realized, would require more time. MatthewLee, DCC chief lawyer, and Nicole Elliott, DCC executive director,have requested that attorney general Rob Bonta express an opinionon whether exporting cannabis to other states would pose asignificant legal risk to California, given the state’s law oncontrolled substances. They pointed out that Congress is prohibitedfrom limiting how states manage their imports and exports by theconstitution. Should interstate commerce commence, there is likelyto be a flurry of activity among companies sending inquiries tocompanies such as REZYFi Inc. which specialize in providing alternative funding to marijuanaentities in need of a cash injection to boost operations and takeadvantage of market opportunities.

REZYFi, Inc. is a cannabis mortgage bank servicing the needs of both traditional and non-traditional consumers and businesses. Its target markets include licensed and permitted cannabis companies, owners of real estate who lease to cannabis companies, and companies and individual homeowners seeking a variety of real estate-related first and additional mortgage-based financing and project-specific financings, such as solar installations and real estate development projects.

ResMac has been in operation for 13 years, having closed more than 20,000 loans for more than 15,000 clients. The company expects to accumulate $285 million in retail origination in 2023, alongside $250 million in wholesale origination for the same period. ResMac is further targeting $600 million in origination through its mortgage correspondent operations for 2023.

Through its ResMac subsidiary, REZYFi operates as a direct lender and originator of residential mortgages, with active mortgage correspondent and mortgage servicing operations. Through its correspondent segment, ResMac primarily purchases and aggregates residential mortgages from trusted third-party originators.

The company intends to harvest the database of customers within its mortgage servicing operations as an essential source of additional growth, especially relative to the new alternative residential loan programs being offered.

  • Experience – REZYFi is led by a seasoned management team with significant expertise spanning a wide range of real estate and financing subsectors. The team also has extensive experience in the cannabis and hemp marketplace, which the company intends to leverage as it navigates the changing landscape of the cannabis industry while sourcing the best opportunities in the sector.
  • Network of Independent Brokers – Over the past five years, REZYFi has developed an extensive network of independent mortgage-related brokers and licensed loan officers. The company is currently training the network members on its new service offerings, with many already launching sales efforts. REZYFi believes this network will be a vital asset moving forward as other firms in the sector terminate relationships in the face of slowing mortgage business in a rising interest rate environment.
  • Proprietary Technology – REZYFi has invested heavily in designing, building and implementing proprietary automated/machine learning technology to shorten loan processing timeframes and increase efficiencies, allowing it to operate its legacy business at staffing levels meaningfully below those of its competitors.

Market Overview

REZYFi’s diversified approach to the real estate lending sector positions it to capitalize on growth in multiple verticals in the years to come.

In the first quarter of 2022, lenders issued 2.71 million residential loans, with the average balance for a first mortgage climbing to a record high of $298,324 in 2021, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. This trend is expected to continue, with Freddie Mac forecasting a 10.4 percent increase in home prices in 2022 and a 5.0 percent bump in 2023. Growth prospects in the cannabis industry paint a similar picture.

The National Association of Realtors® issued a report in April 2021 examining the correlation between cannabis legalization and real estate demand. In states where prescription and recreational cannabis use is legal, more than a third of surveyed agents reported an increase in demand for warehouses. Likewise, 23 percent of those surveyed reported an increase in demand for storefronts, and 28 percent observed increased demand for land. As other states look to join the 19 that have embraced full cannabis legalization, this rising demand could create an opportunity for REZYFi’s cannabis-focused initiatives.

In total, an analysis by market research firm Business Research Insights projects the global loan servicing market to reach a value of nearly $1.5 billion by 2028, up from $680.8 million in 2021. Those figures represent a CAGR of 11.0 percent during the forecast period of 2022-2028.

GeoSolar Technologies Inc. (“GST”) is a Colorado-based climate technology company and the creator of the Smart Green Home® system for newly built and existing residences and commercial buildings. The company is focused on revolutionizing the way we heat, cool and power homes with 100% natural energy sources. Its patent-pending integrated system harnesses energy from the earth and sun to power and purify homes and automobiles without the use of fossil fuels.

In a GST home, the sun’s energy is captured on the roof to generate all of the electricity required. Additionally, the consistent climate of the earth is used to keep the home at a perfect temperature year-round, and the company’s proprietary air purifying unit ensures that the air inside the home is safe and healthy.

GST’s home technology has been installed in multiple test homes in Colorado and achieved exceptional results, including some of the most impressive energy efficiency ratings (HERS) in the industry.

GeoSolar Technologies is currently accepting investment as part of a Regulation A+ offering. Everyone* can invest now for as little as $300. For more information, visit the company’s profile on Manhattan Street Capital and review its Offering Circular.

GeoSolar Technologies Inc. (“GST”) has been qualified by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to conduct a Regulation A+ capital raise. GST is already a publicly traded company who makes quarterly and annual filings with the SEC and is subject to quarterly PCAOB audits.

Upon completion of this Regulation A+ offering, the company intends to seek a listing of its stock.


The Decarbonization Movement

Soaring and unstable energy/fuel costs continue to highlight the importance of rethinking the traditional approach to powering homes, from top to bottom. While most everyone is well aware of the remarkable, multi-trillion-dollar opportunity the electric vehicle transformation offers to investors (in addition to the benefits to the climate problem), few recognize that the all-electric home market is as large as electric vehicles and equally important to reducing carbon emissions.

U.S. energy expenditures clocked in at $3,891 per person in 2018, leading to estimated spending of $1.3 trillion on energy that year alone. Despite this, fewer than 3% of U.S. homes are currently powered by solar. This number is poised to increase exponentially as both new and existing residences transition to zero carbon models.

GST estimates that if all the homes in America were powered by its technology, carbon pollution could be reduced by an estimated 1.9 trillion pounds per year, greatly reducing the negative impacts on our climate.


The GeoSolarPlus (“GSP”) system combines solar power, geothermal ground-sourced energy and other clean energy technologies into one fully integrated system.
Key benefits of the GSP system include:

  • Making a real planet-changing difference in reducing air pollution
  • Eliminating or significantly reducing homeowners’ future utility bills
  • Enjoying lifetime energy independence and protection from price escalation and energy shortages
  • Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from operation of home and daily life
  • Increasing home value
  • An integrated design for seamless operation of renewable energy systems

India Globalization Capital (NYSE American: IGC) (dba IGC Inc.) is reporting on its financial and corporateperformance for the third fiscal quarter 2023. Highlights of thereport include a focus on the company’s phase 2 clinical trial onIGC-AD1 for agitation in dementia from Alzheimer’s disease. Thecompany reports that the number of sites participating in the trialhas reached four: three sites in the United States and one site inCanada. In addition, based on patient enrollment and interest inthe study, the company plans to more than double the number oftrial sites, from the planned 4 or 5 sites to between 10 and 12sites. According to the report, the trial will include 146participants, with one-half receiving a placebo and the otherone-half receiving IGC-AD1. Over a six-week period, the trial willstudy the efficacy of IGC-AD1 in treating agitation in dementiafrom Alzheimer’s disease. The company noted that it is hoping tooffer the first natural tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”)-basedmedication for treating agitation in dementia from Alzheimer’sdisease. Another report highlight was net revenue for the company,which totaled $332,000, an increase of 133% compared to $142,000 inthe three months ended Dec. 31, 2021.

Veterans in Texas are fighting to defend the state’s hempindustry and push to expand its medical cannabis program during the state’slegislative meeting at the capitol. The vets and those who supportthem claim that they require access to delta-8tetrahydrocannabinol, a hemp product, to treat conditions such asPTSD, traumatic brain injuries and chronic pain. Like marijuana,delta-8 THC is widely available in Texas and can induce euphoria.It is distinct from the more popular commercial hemp substanceknown as cannabidiol (CBD), which can be found in a wide range ofgoods such as gummies, lotions and pet treats. Although CBD canmake a user feel a little more at ease, it won’t give users thesame high as delta-8 THC. A majority of states, including Texas,legalized hemp production after federal regulations were changed in2018 to remove hemp from the list of prohibited controlledsubstances. Hemp plants contain less THC, or the substance thatgives the drug its high, than marijuana does. The medicinalpotential of cannabis and its different compounds is attractingplenty of investor interest, and companies such as India Globalization Capital Inc. (NYSE American: IGC) are focused on bringing innovative FDA-approved, THC-basedtherapeutics to the market.

India Globalization Capital Inc. (NYSE American: IGC), through subsidiary IGC Pharma, develops, patents, and markets advanced THC-based drug formulations for the treatment of symptoms related to various diseases including but not limited to Alzheimer’s disease, Tourette syndrome, chronic pain, and pet seizures.

IGC’s leading drug candidate, IGC-AD1, has completed Phase 1 of a safety and tolerability trial and entered Phase 2 trials for treating agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s dementia, the first study in humans of a natural tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound plus another molecule ( As of September 2022, the IGC trial is the only ongoing Phase 2 trial of a natural THC-based formulation on Alzheimer’s patients.

The company’s other drug candidate, TGR-63, is an enzyme inhibitor that has shown in preclinical trials the potential to reduce neurotoxicity in Alzheimer’s cell lines. Both drug candidates have shown their ability to ameliorate beta amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s cell lines and improve memory in Alzheimer’s mouse models. Beta amyloid plaques are a key hallmark of Alzheimer’s and an important target of Alzheimer’s pharmaceutical drug development.

Neuro Psychiatric Symptoms (NPS) are not only debilitating for Alzheimer’s patients; they also place an immense emotional burden on their caregivers. Beyond reducing symptoms, IGC-AD1’s active molecules and TGR-63 have also shown promise in preclinical trials to reduce important hallmarks of Alzheimer’s including plaques and tangles, as well as improving the treatment of memory loss.

Over the past eight years, the IGC team has amassed a deep knowledge of cannabinoid science, including extraction, isolation, purification, and development. The company’s strategy is to leverage its unique end-to-end capabilities, platform, and expertise to develop a class-leading program and bring it to market quickly and cost efficiently to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

The company also has a family of cannabidiol (CBD)-based consumer products ( such as pain relief creams, pain relief gels, purpose gummies, tinctures, and capsules targeting women’s wellness, with a particular focus on premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and dysmenorrhea (period cramps). In addition, the company targets individuals that need sleep-aids with its specially formulated low melatonin cannabinoid gummies.

IGC has also introduced a low-calorie CBD- and caffeine-infused energy beverage brand ( that is currently available for purchase. The company’s brands are founded on the belief that effective natural solutions should be affordable and accessible to everyone. As the demand for natural products targeting women’s wellness and energy drinks continue to grow, these products are seeing strong traction in the market.

The company operates three facilities – a large GMP (Good Manufacturing Production Standards) certified facility that includes extraction, distillation, and manufacturing, in Washington State; a GMP-211 (pharmaceutical) grade facility in Maryland; and a facility licensed for controlled substances including cannabis in Bogota, Colombia, with complete access to legal licensed cannabis where the company conducts its testing.

In addition, the company’s development under Magistral Formulations is approved by INVIMA (Colombia National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute) to treat neurological disorders, non-oncological chronic pain, and mental disorders.

IGC’s intellectual property (IP) portfolio comprises of eight patents that it controls and seven patent applications. The portfolio includes #11,446,276, a patent for extreme low dose THC treatment of Alzheimer’s that was granted in September 2022.

The company is headquartered in Potomac, Maryland.


IGC-AD1 is the company’s leading drug candidate for the treatment and relief of Alzheimer’s symptoms. A significant amount of research on Alzheimer’s cell lines has shown that the active agents in IGC-AD1 reduce plaques and neurofibrillary tangles that are the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s. Further, micro-dosing of THC, as shown in cell lines, could increase the functioning of mitochondria and potentially promote the growth of new neural pathways (neurogenesis). The research shows that micro-dosing of THC affects the brain radically differently from the normal higher dosing of THC.

While there is a significant body of research showing that THC is neuro-toxic at normal levels of dosing, micro-dosing of THC has been shown to be non-toxic to neurons. With the results of these preclinical studies, the company developed an oral formulation, IGC-AD1. The company recently completed a safety and tolerability Phase 1 trial on Alzheimer’s patients and has initiated a Phase 2, multi-site, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the safety and efficacy of IGC-AD1 on agitation in participants with dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease at sites in the U.S. and Canada. IGC expects the Phase 2 trial to take between 9 and 12 months to complete, barring unknown factors such as, for example, a resurgence of COVID and the enforcement of lockdowns and travel restrictions.

With further successful trials and FDA approvals, IGC hopes to bring a drug based on natural THC as an effective treatment for agitation in Alzheimer’s to market.


The company’s other molecule, TGR-63, has been shown to reduce the neurotoxicity that impacts memory loss in preclinical trials with mice. On a dose dependent manner, transgenic Alzheimer’s mice treated with TGR-63 showed improvement in memory relative to control.

Both drug candidates, IGC-AD1 and TGR-63, have shown their ability to reduce the brain plaques associated with memory loss in Alzheimer’s in mice.

With further successful trials and FDA approvals, IGC hopes to bring TGR-63 as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease to market.

Market Opportunity

Alzheimer’s disease impacts over 55 million people worldwide and about 5.5 million individuals in the U.S. Over 70% of these patients face debilitating symptoms, including anxiety, depression, and agitation (Mendez, 2021). Agitation in dementia patients can include excessive physical movement and verbal activity, restlessness, pacing, belligerence, aggression, screaming, crying, and wandering.

In 2020, the estimated healthcare costs for Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. were $305 billion. Medicare and Medicaid covered about 70% of those costs, leaving considerable burden on patients and families. At the current rate of growth of Alzheimer’s and other dementia diagnoses, those costs are estimated to reach over $1 trillion by 2050.

Currently, there are no FDA-approved medications to alleviate the symptoms of dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease, providing a tremendous opportunity for formulations that can have an impact on quality of life and disease progression.

MetAlert Inc. (OTC: MLRT) is a pioneer in location sensitive health monitoring devices (estimated $47 billion industry in 2021) and wearable technology products (industry forecast to reach $174 billion by 2030).

With over 20 years of experience and an extensive patent portfolio (30+), MetAlert is a leader for consumers/patients afflicted with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism (ADA). This market represents approximately 2.9% of the world’s population (approximately 34 million people in 24 developed countries). Due to specific behaviors (problems with memory, adversity to wearing unknown items, etc.) of consumers/patients in this market segment, traditional products, such as an iPhone or Fitbit, are not a practical solution. This has created a significant market with very few competitors for MetAlert.

MetAlert and its subsidiaries are engaged in designing, developing, manufacturing, distributing, and selling products and services in GPS/BLE wearable technology, personal location, wandering assistive technology, and health data collection and monitoring. The company offers a global end-to-end hardware, software, and connectivity solution, in addition to developing two-way tracking technologies, which seamlessly integrate with consumer products and enterprise applications.

Using its award-winning, patented GPS SmartSole® as a hub for collecting and transmitting data to the cloud in real-time, MetAlert is expanding its value proposition to consumers and increasing its revenue per user (RPU) while creating the largest database of health statistics for ADA consumers/patients. MetAlert generates revenue from product sales, recurring subscriptions, intellectual property (IP) licensing, and professional services. The company has international distributors servicing customers in over 35 countries and is an approved U.S. military government contractor. Its customers include public health authorities and municipalities, emergency and law enforcement, private schools, assisted living facilities, NGOs, small business enterprises, senior care homes and consumers.

The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, with a sales office in London, England, and distributors across the globe.


  • GPS SmartSoles® HUB (launched Q4 2022) is a GPS/BLE-equipped insole that allows remote monitoring, data collection, and encrypted data transmission to the cloud.
    • Telehealth (available Q4 2022) allows access remotely to doctors and other health professionals on an as-needed basis. This service will also function as the prescribing doctor once Medicare reimbursement codes are established.
    • Concierge (available Q4 2022) provides 24/7/365 enhanced emergency response that coordinates with all relevant parties to quickly detect false alarms and escalate response as needed.
    • Bluetooth Enabled Devices (available Q1 2023) include third-party devices that collect vitals and other health data and connect with the GPS Smartsoles® HUB.
    • Artificial Intelligence (available Q1 2023) software will evaluate the Teradata of health information identifying trends and respond to preestablished alert thresholds.
  • Take-Along Tracker is a small GPS tracking device – less than three inches long – that works with 4G cellular service and will have the same “HUB” functionality as the GPS Smartsoles®. This versatile and affordable mini tracker boasts super long battery life, with up to 14 days of operation per charge.
  • RoomMate™ is a wall-mounted alert system that detects and alerts caregivers about patient behavior that could lead to falls and injuries. The system features 3D infrared and wall-mounted sensors, eliminating the need for any other physical installation or wearables. RoomMate™ offers patient privacy by design. Images are not stored, but all actions are logged. It’s a unique solution for looking after patients without intruding on their personal space.

Market Outlook

According to Grand View Research (Patient Monitoring Devices Market Size & Share Report, 2030), the global patient monitoring devices market size was valued at $47.0 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8% from 2022 to 2030. The expansion of the industry can be attributed to the rise in demand for monitoring devices used to measure, distribute, record, and display a variety of biometric data, including blood pressure, temperature, and blood oxygen saturation level.

The growing number of chronic disorders, such as diabetes, stroke, and kidney disease, are driving the demand for patient monitoring devices. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 422 million people globally have diabetes. Likewise, the number of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients (COPD) is increasing rapidly.

According to the WHO, around 235 million people suffer from asthma. As a result, peak flow meters, which are used to gauge respiration rate, are increasingly used. The market for patient monitoring devices is driven by the simplicity with which it is handled, transported, and remotely accessible. Major market players are engaging in a variety of tactics to expand the industry, including partnerships, cooperation, innovation, launches, and mergers.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, social segregation and quarantining procedures were put into place worldwide. Many people avoided regular hospital visits as a result. Many people now need routine home temperature and oxygen level monitoring to maintain track of their health, thereby demanding monitoring devices at home.

Various government programs are supporting the pandemic outbreak. The FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) for a few wearables and patient monitoring devices to improve access to medicines, monitor patients more closely, and lessen the risk of SARS-CoV-2 exposure to medical professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The growing popularity of wearable and remote patient monitoring devices is another factor fueling the market’s expansion. By fusing clinical symptomology with vital indicators, wearable technology helps in the diagnosis of many chronic diseases. Thus, there has been a dramatic rise in the usage of wearable technology to combat COVID-19.

The wearable medical device market is anticipated to reach $174.48 Billion by 2030, expanding at a 27.1% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2030), according to Market Research Future.

MetAlert identifies the total addressable market for its wearable patient monitoring tech for those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism at more than 34 million potential patients in North America, Europe, South Africa, and Asia.

Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD) is a product and brand marketing company investing in operations and technologies with disruptive potential. The company is focused on collaborating with real people in real-time to identify the emerging desires and behaviors poised to unlock new opportunities and pathways for growth. Sugarmade seeks to redefine the marketplace by nurturing an innovative and compelling relationship between brand, botany and business – resulting in both undeniable consumer value and an intriguing cross-pollination of revenue sources.

The company’s core strategic plan is centered on expanding its end-market access as a central player in the growing California cannabis delivery marketplace while developing its in-house cannabis production capacity to verticalize operations in the space. Through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions, Sugarmade intends to develop a full farm-to-door vertically integrated cannabis business.

Brand Portfolio

Sugarmade has investments in a number of subsidiaries with active operations in the California cannabis sector. These include:

  • NUG Avenue – Sugarmade owns a 70% stake in NUG Avenue, a cannabis delivery service based in Southern California providing hand-selected top-shelf products from Stiiizy, Kanha, PlugPlay and more.
  • BudCars – Sugarmade is an investor in cannabis delivery service of BudCars’ first operating location in Sacramento, California. BudCars is an online-shopping experience designed to provide new customers with an easy way to discover and order cannabis products within minutes.

Acquisition of Lemon Glow Company

On May 17, 2021, Sugarmade took a major step toward closing the loop on what its management team believes to be one of the most promising vertically integrated cannabis models in the thriving California market when it announced the signing of a definitive agreement for its acquisition of Lemon Glow Company Inc.

The Lemon Glow acquisition includes 640 acres of property, 32 of which have already been designated for outdoor cannabis cultivation. Per the company’s news release, the annual potential cultivation yield at the property is estimated to be approximately 4,000 pounds of dry trimmed cannabis flower per acre per year, which represents approximately 128,000 pounds, or 64 tons, of dry trimmed cannabis flower per year in total.

Notably, Sugarmade also benefits from the acquisition in terms of team capital, as Lemon Glow executive team members will stay on and become the core management team at the cannabis cultivation site, granting the operation over 30 years of cannabis cultivation experience.

“The Lemon Glow team are tremendous additions to the Sugarmade team,” Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade, commented in announcing the definitive agreement. “They have vast experience and established skills, as well as intricate knowledge of the property and its local grow context. That’s an enormous added value proposition in this deal. We look forward to bringing them on board, ramping up operations at the property, and taking key steps toward delivering on the promise of Sugarmade’s farm-to-door vision.”

Market Opportunity

The California cannabis industry has continued to record tremendous growth since voters approved a measure to legalize recreational use of the plant in 2016. According to data from MJBizDaily, California’s legal market hit $4.4 billion in sales in 2020, up from $2.8 billion in 2019 and $1.4 billion in 2018.

Those figures highlight California’s status as the largest legal cannabis market in the world. With roughly 28 million residents over the age of 21, California is more than twice the combined size of the four states (Arizona, New Jersey, Montana and North Dakota) that legalized cannabis in 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic was a key driver in the growth of cannabis delivery services throughout the state in 2020. One California cannabis delivery firm reported a 60% increase in new delivery customer sign-ups in the 30 days following the March 13, 2020, declaration of a national emergency. As a result of this boom, tech companies in cannabis ecommerce were able to dramatically increase their market share.
Sugarmade’s continued efforts to develop a farm-to-door vertically integrated cannabis business position it to capitalize on these trends as the California cannabis industry continues to expand moving forward.


Jimmy Chan is the CEO of Sugarmade. He is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, international manufacturing and importation. He is also the founder of, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.

Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.0001, even for the day, on 7,302,975 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7.303M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0001/$0.0009.
