(NIO), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Nio Inc. (NYSE: NIO), a multinational automobile manufacturer based in China, recently revealed its plans to launch a mass-market electric vehicle. The company, which specializes in the design and development of high-end sedans and SUVs, wants to center its new brand on the wider consumer market, with a focus on families.

The new brand, dubbed Le Dao, is expected to launch in the second quarter with its first product launch in the third quarter. Large-scale deliveries are set to begin in the last quarter of the year.

Nio, founded in November 2014, provides premium cars with additional services such as access to houses under its umbrella. Despite this, the company’s monthly car deliveries haven’t yet matched up to the growth recorded by its competitors.

Another electric car startup based in China, Xpeng Inc., is also planning to launch a mass-market brand in collaboration with DiDi Global Inc., a leading mobility technology platform. Xpeng plans to target the $20,580 (150,000 yuan) price range.

Currently, China leads in electric-car charging infrastructure, with 2.7 million electric vehicle chargers. This is a huge number, especially when compared to America’s 130,000 chargers. In China, there’s a charger for every seven cars, while in the United States, there’s a charger for every 18 cars.

Chargers in China are also more powerful, providing four kilowatts an hour. In America, chargers offer one kilowatt an hour.

So, why is this important for retail investors?

For starters, the launch of Le Dao underlines the increasing competition in the electric car market, particularly in China. Such developments could influence Nio’s market share as well as its success in this competitive industry.

Secondly, entering the mass-market segment will allow Nio to tap into the increasing demand for environmentally friendly options for transportation with a focus on families. The shift toward this market also presents an opportunity for retail investors to assess the company’s position and possible market success.

The company’s decision to venture into the mass market may open Nio up to strategic partnerships with other players in the industry. Retail investors may find benefit in monitoring the company as collaborations or alliances could influence Nio’s future prospects as well as its growth trajectory.

Additionally, the company’s move into the mass-market segment shows its commitment to expanding its consumer base beyond the luxury market. This move may attract more consumers, which leads to increased volumes in sales and revenue growth, an appealing opportunity for retail investors.

Furthermore, a successful launch and subsequent acceptance of its mass-market brand may greatly impact Nio’s financial performance.

Nio Inc. (NIO), closed Monday's trading session at $4.91, up 0.408998%, on 56,419,441 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1.122M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $4.78/$16.18.

Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (SDIG)

In recent years, the landscape of cryptocurrency has witnessed significant transformations. In addition to the stimulus-fueled boom of 2021, venture capital (VC) companies invested an astounding $33 billion in blockchain and cryptocurrency startups.

However, subsequent events such as the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hikes triggered a series of bankruptcies and collapses within the crypto market, including Terra (LUNA) and FTX. Further, despite initial optimism, the concept of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) encountered setbacks, including more than $3 billion in losses due to DeFi hacks in 2023. Moreover, the ongoing Bitcoin bull run underscored a lack of confidence in alternative coins.

Yet, amid these fluctuations lies an intriguing possibility at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology. Reflecting on past cycles prompts us to envision a landscape where AI intertwines with crypto.

Previously, DeFi evolved into centralized entities such as BlockFi and Celsius Network, blurring the lines between CeFi and DeFi. To revitalize DeFi, a renewed focus on user experience and security is imperative. With that as a backdrop, he zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine (zkEVM) emerges as a promising solution enhancing network throughput and simplifying user experiences while fortifying security.

Moreover, AI applications, which inherently generate vast amounts of data, face scalability challenges on blockchain networks. Here, solutions such as Polygon zkEVM pave the way for innovations such as AI-generated artwork tokenized as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

The synergy between smart contracts and AI sets the stage for a more autonomous and efficient financial infrastructure. Through composability, where smart contracts interact across various protocols, the foundation for innovation is laid. Composability facilitates innovation across three layers: morphological, atomic and syntactic. This modular approach resembles Lego bricks, allowing for the seamless integration of different protocols, such as Compound, which enables users to supply liquidity without intermediaries. Liquidity providers earn interest in the form of cTokens, which can be utilized across compatible protocols.

However, managing the complexity arising from composability poses a challenge, one that AI is well-equipped to address. With its ability for superhuman processing, AI can optimize market efficiency by monitoring real-time data and coordinating transactions across platforms, potentially mitigating market inefficiencies and reducing human error.

The convergence of blockchain technology and AI extends beyond financial markets, with implications for various sectors. Projects such as Fetch.AI exemplify this trend, offering open-access protocols to connect Autonomous Economic Agents and facilitate transactions through AI-driven networks.

As the value of AI-crypto tokens surges, democratizing access to AI agents becomes paramount. FET token, for instance, aims to facilitate AI deployment and incentivize network participants, driving growth in the AI market.

Looking ahead, the integration of AI and blockchain promises a future where AI agents interact seamlessly with decentralized protocols, revolutionizing decision-making processes. While institutional adoption remains a hurdle, open-access ecosystems and innovative projects such as the Allora Network and Injective Protocol are poised to reshape the landscape.

Indeed entities such as Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (NASDAQ: SDIG) may already be exploring vible ways to leverage the convergence of AI and crypto in order to improve their offerings to customers and investors.

Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (SDIG), closed Monday's trading session at $4.05, up 2.0151%, on 400,073 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 12.631M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $3.46/$12.50.

Human rights groups are urging the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) to ramp up efforts to exclude “dirty gold” from the exchange’s supply chain. The LBMA oversees the worldwide over-the-counter (OTC) bullion market and has a global membership of nearly 150 refiners, traders, producers, fabricators and miners.

Referring to itself as the global precious metals authority, the London Bullion Market Association sets global standards for how companies in the mining space mine, refine and trade precious metals, including gold and silver. While the association has certainly taken steps to prevent gold associated with criminality or human rights abuses from entering its supply chain, rights groups say conflict gold still ends up in the London gold market.

A recent letter from eight mining analysis organizations to the London Bullion Market Association noted that LBMA-vetted refineries still obtain gold from “questionable sources” and allow conflict gold to infiltrate the global supply chain. According to the letter, these refineries also aren’t mitigating the environmental harm and human rights violations associated with gold mining and refining.

In response, the LBMA sent an email stating it was looking forward to discussing several proposals at an upcoming London event. The association has issued several initiatives to prevent conflict gold from passing through its refiners and legally entering bank vaults, including the establishment of the Good Delivery List (GDL), a list that outlines refiners the LBMA considers to be reputable gold sources. Members of the list are reportedly backed by due diligence systems put in place by the LBMA and are allowed to trade freely on the gold market.

However, the rights organizations said that while LBMA systems have seen “slight improvements” over the past three years, many of the refiners on its list have been found to source gold from suppliers linked to human rights abuses, money laundering, and land and water pollution. As a result, they say the exchange has allowed gold associated with human rights issues or environmental degradation to enter the worldwide gold market. The letter cited instances exposed by researchers or the media in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America but did not specify any of the refineries said to be involved with questionable gold suppliers.

The groups also said that gold refiners don’t make enough effort to engage with the communities around gold mines. The letter also noted that refiners often take advantage of the lack of strict reporting requirements to be less transparent about where they source their gold.

There is need for the entire industry to identify more robust mechanisms through which the gold from known miners such as Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX) can be clearly distinguished from the gold linked to conflicts, rights abuses and other forms of criminality.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX), closed Monday's trading session at $45.35, up 0.554324%, on 7,754,774 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 505,939 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $32.825/$46.485.

Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTBIF)

(GTBIF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A recently conducted survey has determined that the number of Canadians purchasing marijuana legally has increased. Data published by Statistics Canada earlier this month shows that more than two-thirds of marijuana consumers are buying the drug legally. The survey received responses from 5,185 adults 25 to 44 years of age and 2,251 individuals aged 18 to 24.

It determined that within the last 12 months, almost 72% of those surveyed exclusively purchased marijuana from legal markets.

When queried why they bought from legal sources, 38% of respondents stated that they did so because of product safety, nearly 13% wanted to follow the law, and almost 17% did so because it was convenient. The willingness to purchase legal products was confirmed by a separate report published earlier this month, which highlighted that recreational marijuana sales by provincial authorities rose by 15.8% annually, totaling about $4.7 billion in spending.

The latest survey also observed an increase in the number of individuals who admitted to using legal marijuana in the past 12 months, with the figure moving from 53% two years prior to 61% in 2023.

These findings demonstrate the ongoing success of the country’s marijuana policy and the legal market’s consolidation since recreational marijuana was legalized in 2018. They also indicate that most consumers buy primarily from legal shops whose products are tracked and are safer, which displaces the illegal market.

The survey also examined marijuana consumption, determining that roughly 34% of individuals aged 25 to 44 and 38.4% of those aged 18 to 24 years admitted to using the drug in the past year. This is in comparison to more than 15% of individuals aged 45 and above. Additionally, about 10% of individuals aged 25 to 44 and 8.7% of individuals aged 18 to 24 years reported that they used marijuana almost daily or daily in the same period. This is in comparison to almost 5% of individuals aged 45 and above. This suggests that daily or almost-daily use of marijuana is more common in younger populations.

Interestingly, the survey also determined that while there were no gender differences among those below 45 years of age, men aged 45 and above were more likely than women to admit to daily marijuana use. The findings also demonstrated different purchasing habits based on gender, with 62.7% of women buying edibles, compared to nearly 52% of men.

With regard to popular product groups, the survey found that cannabis flowers and edibles were the most popular across age groups surveyed in the last 12 months.  Additionally, nearly 71% of men preferred purchasing cannabis flowers. This is in comparison to about 48% of women.

As more people in Canada shift from buying black-market products, the cannabis industry is set to grow even more in a way that U.S.-based companies such as Green Thumb Industries Inc. (CSE: GTII) (OTCQX: GTBIF) can hope to enjoy once legal reforms become instituted at the federal level.

Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTBIF), closed Monday's trading session at $13.47, off by 3.1632%, on 389,773 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 592,460 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $6.42/$14.30.

Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (TCNNF)

InvestorPlace, QualityStocks, MarketBeat, Wealth Insider Alert, Daily Trade Alert, Top Pros' Top Picks, Cabot Wealth, The Street, Trades Of The Day, Profit Trends, TradersPro, The Online Investor, StreetInsider and Prism MarketView reported earlier on Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (TCNNF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Vice President Kamala Harris, speaking at the White House to a group of individuals who received pardons related to marijuana offenses, expressed her support for the legalization of cannabis, marking a potential change in the administration’s stance as the November elections approach. An attendee at the meeting disclosed Harris’s statement, which came after her public call for the DEA to expedite the rescheduling of marijuana.

Harris, who had previously advocated for cannabis legalization as a senator and during her 2020 presidential campaign, has not publicly championed the cause since joining President Joe Biden’s ticket. Throughout the campaign and her tenure as vice president, she has aligned herself with President Biden’s more moderate approach, focusing on ending cannabis-related incarceration and providing pardons for select offenses.

The White House hosted a diverse group for the discussion, including Governor Andy Beshear of Kentucky, rapper Fat Joe, and others, reflecting the administration’s efforts on marijuana clemency. Harris’s call for cannabis legalization, while made in private, marks a significant departure from the administration’s previous reluctance to embrace federal marijuana reform openly.

Despite the administration’s reluctance to endorse federal legalization, Biden has pardoned numerous individuals for federal marijuana possession and directed agencies to review marijuana scheduling.

In the public portion of the meeting, Harris emphasized the urgency of rescheduling cannabis, criticizing its current classification alongside drugs such as heroin. However, Harris acknowledged that rescheduling alone wouldn’t equate to federal legalization. She recognized the complexity of the issue and the need for further action beyond mere reclassification.

Although the White House recorded the closed-door discussion, including Harris’s remarks on legalization, no materials have been released yet.

Harris’s evolution on marijuana policy — from her prosecutorial days in San Francisco to her current support for legalization — reflects a nuanced journey. While the primary focus of the meeting was on the administration’s clemency initiatives, it also served as a strategic move to win over voters, particularly young voters, in light of the upcoming November elections.

Social media was recently abuzz with commentary about Biden’s congressional speech, in which he acknowledged his cannabis pardons and administrative actions. However, his mischaracterization of the pardons, implying they expunge records, could pose legal challenges for recipients.

Nonetheless, it seems Harris is taking on the role of spokesperson for the administration’s cannabis policy leading up to the elections, potentially benefiting both her and Biden’s campaigns.

Leading cannabis industry companies such as Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (CSE: TRUL) (OTCQX: TCNNF) are unlikely to be too excited by the statements attributed to the vice president because the industry has learned that it takes a lot more than opinions to enact reforms at the federal level, especially on matters of drug policy.

Lexaria, a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, recently hired a Contract Research Organization to perform their second GLP-1 human pilot study which will test a dissolvable DehydraTECH-GLP-1 oral dose formulation

The announcement follows Lexaria's WEIGHT-A24-1 animal study announcement examining diabetes and weight loss effects of DehydraTECH-processed GLP-1 drugs and cannabidiol alone and in combination

The move aligns with the company's resolve to focus on their ability to enhance the delivery of GLP-1 diabetes and obesity drugs

At the beginning of the year, Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator for enhanced drug delivery platforms, announced its intention to double down on GLP-1 clinical studies for the 2024 calendar year. This followed a successful, active year of R&D in 2023, which saw impressive results from its patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology for the improved delivery of GLP-1 agonists (glucagon-like peptide 1) used to treat type 2 diabetes and weight loss. According to Chris Bunka, the company's CEO, these initial results fueled the management's optimism in this new direction, emphasizing its superior pharmacokinetics and safety/efficacy performance of GLP-1 drugs when formulated with the technology.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. The company’s patented technology, DehydraTECH™, improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules. DehydraTECH promotes fast-acting, less expensive and more effective oral drug delivery and has been thoroughly evaluated through in vivo, in vitro and human clinical testing.

DehydraTECH is covered by 21 issued and more than 50 pending patents in over 40 countries around the world. Lexaria’s first patent was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in October 2016 (US 9,474,725 B1), providing 20 years of patent protection expiring June 2034. Multiple patents have been awarded since then and are expected in the future.

Lexaria has also collaborated with the National Research Council (NRC), the Canadian government’s premier research and technology organization. The company has been granted patent protection for specific delivery of nicotine, vitamins, NSAIDs, antiviral drugs, cannabinoids and more.

Currently focused on pioneering innovative solutions in the digital content landscape, the company’s goal is to provide cutting-edge and diverse content experiences to a global audience.

In February 2024, Bravo finalized a deal to acquire Streaming TVEE Inc.’s assets, marking a pivotal step in establishing its flagship offering, aptly named TVee NOW™. The acquired assets provide the company with the technology and foundation to soon offer streaming services including Video-On-Demand (VOD) and linear TV, often referred to as traditional broadcast TV, which encompasses cable and satellite networks, through a joint venture with Pythia Experiences.

TVee NOW™ plans to offer a wide range of on-demand content, including movies, series, concerts and original programming, at minimal or no cost to viewers. The service, set for beta launch in Q1 2024, will be accessible across various devices, with dedicated apps available on platforms such as Roku, Apple and Google Play stores, reinforcing Bravo’s commitment to innovation and audience accessibility.

Bravo’s Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming platform is specifically crafted to deliver content directly to viewers via the internet, accessible through a browser or freely downloadable apps on smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.

Bravo’s planned strategic approach for content is to first integrate partnered Free Ad-Supported TV (FAST) channels, programmatic advertising and a tiered revenue sharing model.

Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (FRA: OF6B) (OTC: GXRFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (OTC: GXRFF) .

Earlier this week, Texas announced that it would be pulling the plug on its multibillion-dollar investment with BlackRock. This comes after the state determined that BlackRock was boycotting energy companies.

BlackRock is a multinational investment company and the biggest asset manager globally with trillions in assets under management. Aaron Kinsey, chair of the state's Board of Education, revealed that the decision was made in agreement with a 2021 state law focused on distancing Texas and its public funds from financial institutions that boycotted the oil and gas sector. In a statement, Kinsey stated that the state's Permanent School Fund had a duty to protect schools in Texas by safeguarding and growing the roughly $1 billion in yearly oil and gas royalties managed by the state's General Land Office. BlackRock seems to be encountering serious blowback in its efforts to champion ESG implementation. However, not all is lost as many companies, such as Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (OTC: GXRFF) (FRA: OF6B), are already implementing these principles given the wide-ranging benefits that such an undertaking can bring.

Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (OTC: GXRFF) (FRA: OF6B) is a public oil and gas exploration, exploitation and development company focusing on conventional oil and gas reservoirs in Western Canada. The company uses its experience to develop, acquire and drill assets with potential for primary and secondary recovery.

Prospera is primarily focused on optimizing hydrocarbon recovery from legacy fields through environmentally safe and efficient reservoir development methods and production practices. It is in the midst of a three-stage restructuring process aimed at prioritizing cost effective operations while appreciating production capacity and reducing liabilities.

The company is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


Prospera’s core properties include more than 42,000 cumulative acres across Cuthbert, Luseland and Heart Hills in Saskatchewan and Red Earth and Pouce Coupe in Alberta. In total, the company estimates that there are half a billion barrels of oil in place at these sites accounting for 20+ years of forward project lifespan, with as little as 8% of total reserves having been recovered via legacy vertical well technology.

Restructuring Initiative

In 2021, Prospera enacted a top-down reorganization. The early results of these efforts were on display in May 2023, when the company reported a three-fold year-over-year increase in annual revenue for 2022 alongside drastically reduced operating costs and record-high cash flow from operations.

Prospera noted in the news release that it has positioned itself in 2023 to execute the second phase of its development plan aimed at increasing production through medium-oil development in Alberta and leveraging horizontal wells to capture the significant remaining reserves in Saskatchewan.

During the company’s investor summit in August 2023, Prospera CEO Samuel David provided more information regarding this three-phase strategy:

Phase I

Prospera completed the first phase of its restructuring by optimizing operations at its existing assets and addressing legacy arrears and non-compliance issues.

At the beginning of this transformation, the company was producing just 80 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day. In Q4 of last year, Prospera peaked at nearly 1,200 BOE per day. Its breakeven is around 500 barrels per day, illustrating the opportunity for free cash flow. This prospect has driven Prospera’s capital development and optimization in recent quarters.

After a temporary slowdown in production due to harsh winter conditions, Prospera is currently producing about 800 BOE per day and anticipates an additional 300-500 barrels of daily production following the completion of ongoing site maintenance work.

This sustained increase has pushed the company’s NPV from roughly $3 million prior to the restructuring efforts to approximately $72 million today.

In an effort to build on this progress and maximize its available resources, Prospera piloted two horizontal reentries to assess a potential horizontal well transformation at its properties.

Phase II

Following up on the optimization efforts of Phase I, Prospera aims to commence a horizontal well transformation at its properties in the coming months. Based on its pilot wells from Phase I, the company has proposed 10 horizontal well locations at its Cuthbert and Heart Hills properties.

Prospera has likewise proposed eight medium light oil direction wells at its Alberta property, and it is exploring strategic acquisitions aimed at expanding its core area and diversifying its product mix.

Other facets of Phase II include piloting an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) application and continuing to execute its liability management goals and ESG initiatives. Prospera has already abandoned 60 vertical wells as part of its three-year LMR plan to reclaim surface land and reduce the environmental footprint of its operations.

Phase III

Beginning next year, Phase III of Prospera’s corporate redevelopment strategy will focus on continuing the company’s horizontal modular development to appreciate production and optimize recovery of remaining reserves. Prospera intends to implement full-scale EOR applications based on the results of its Phase II pilot program, which is forecast to optimize recovery by greater than 10%.

Prospera also intends to continue its acquisition strategy to diversify its product mix. Its goal, as detailed by in August 2023 investor summit, is to attain 50% light oil, 40% heavy oil and 10% gas – all while continuing to eliminate carbon emissions as part of its existing ESG initiatives.

Poised for Growth

Following its transformational efforts in 2022, Prospera is poised to achieve record growth in 2023. The company has forecast significant reductions in production costs through 2024, alongside sizable increases in daily production.

Prospera is currently exploring strategic acquisition targets to potentially increase its production beyond 5,000 BPD while expanding its reserve base to a billion barrels.

Market Opportunity

While the oil and gas industry faces long-term geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty, there is a clear trend to secure supply in the short term. According to Deloitte, the global upstream industry ended 2022 with some of the highest free cash flows on record, driving reinvestment in hydrocarbons and overall investment in clean energy.

The Energy Information Administration recently forecast a dip in global oil inventories over each of the next five quarters, placing upward pressure on oil prices. The agency further forecasts a YoY increase in fuel consumption, exacerbating the effects of OPEC+ production cuts that are set to remain in place through 2024.

For Prospera, these forecasts are promising. The company aims to build on its recent financial growth in the coming months (Prospera reported a three-fold YoY increase in revenue to $13.9 million in 2022), hitting a projected $57 million in total revenue by the end of 2024 while working to expand its core area holdings through accretive M&A transactions.

Leadership Team

Prospera is led by a team with extensive, diverse petroleum industry experience spanning both reservoir management and operations of oil and gas assets. The team boasts a proven track record of reorganizing companies, structuring financing arrangements and positioning for growth.

Samuel David is the company’s President and CEO. He brings to Prospera over 32 years of experience in operation, development and management of oil and gas assets and companies. Mr. David holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Calgary. His background consists of both engineering and executive management experience with majors Petro-Canada, AEC Oil & Gas (now EnCana / Cenovus) and Husky Energy, as well as founding and operating juniors Ventura Energy and First West Petroleum. Mr. David has proven expertise in corporate planning, production, reservoir engineering, depletion strategies, EOR, property evaluations, acquisitions and divestitures.

George Magarian is VP Subsurface for Prospera. He is a professional petroleum geologist (APEGA) with over 36 years’ experience in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. After graduating with an Honors B.Sc. degree in Earth Science from the University of Waterloo, Mr. Magarian spearheaded many successful exploration programs, conducted evaluations for improved recovery schemes and assessed/exploited unconventional oil reservoir opportunities. He has held roles of increasing responsibility, from exploration geologist at oil industry major Petro-Canada and intermediates Anderson Exploration and Jordan Petroleum, to geoscience manager and VP exploration at junior companies Ionic Energy, Gentry Resources and Westfire Energy.

Chris Ludtke is the company’s VP Finance & Accounting. He is a high functioning finance leader with extensive expertise in finance, budgets and planning, accounting, economic evaluation, management, governance and sound decision making. Mr. Ludtke has 20 years of experience within the oil and gas, clean energy and renewables industries, including 12+ years working for Husky Energy before moving into an executive role in the junior oil and gas and hydrogen space. He graduated from the University of Lethbridge (Bachelor of Management) and is a Chartered Professional Accountant in the Province of Alberta.

Matthew Kenna is the CFO of Prospera. He has over 30 years’ experience leading organizations and helping them expand, drive efficiencies and grow profitability.

MedCana adds to portfolio with strategic acquisition of two cannabis companies

First acquisition represents "leap forward" in SFWJ's commitment to innovation, excellence within the cannabis sector

Second company holds key production, processing and exportation licenses that will strengthen MedCana's operational chain

Software Effective Solutions (d/b/a MedCana) (OTC: SFWJ) is growing its footprint in the cannabis space through savvy acquisitions. In the past few months, MedCana, a leading holding company in the cannabis industry, has announced two new acquisitions as the company keeps its eye on making strategic additions to its portfolio.

Software Effective Solutions Corp. (d/b/a MedCana) (OTC: SFWJ) is a global infrastructure and holding company in the cannabis industry. MedCana currently has five companies focused on pharmaceutical cannabis production, as well a software company focused on managing processes for plant-to-patient operations. The recent acquisition of an irrigation and greenhouse technology company has rounded out MedCana’s portfolio of holdings.

MedCana’s focus is on developing clients and companies in Latin America, initially in Colombia, and partnerships with laboratories, research facilities and hospitals throughout the world. MedCana is building the technology, laboratories, growing facilities and scientific teams to provide premium pharmaceutical-grade cannabis extracts to the world.

MedCana’s goal is to be the world’s premier resource for pharmaceutical cannabis products. The company believes its advantage is its global view and reach. From initial cultivation to final product, MedCana aims to help partners produce pharmaceutical CBD and other extracts that will have no equal.

The company’s mission is to utilize its technology to partner with and develop companies that provide premium pharmaceutical-grade cannabis extracts with absolute integrity, sustainability and social responsibility. MedCana’s team of pharmaceutical scientists includes some of the most respected chemists in the world. They aim to ensure that the company’s customers and partners create premium cannabis extracts that meet the growing worldwide demand. MedCana’s software is designed to ensure traceability and quality from seed to finished product.

MedCana is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with offices in Colombia.


MedCana announced in May 2023 the beginning of full-scale production of non-THC cannabis for export to Europe in response to high demand in that market. This expansion comes after the successful completion of full crop cycle testing and infrastructure development at production sites in Columbia.

The recent acquisition of the assets of Tokan Corp., a software company focused on creating an enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform for the cannabis industry, and Eko2O S.A.S., a greenhouse and irrigation engineering company, has positioned MedCana for explosive growth in the region.

As a MedCana subsidiary, Eko2O SA will increase the company’s revenue potential in Central and South America. The subsidiary specializes in the construction and distribution of greenhouses and sophisticated irrigation platforms. A positive outlook has resulted from the company’s expansion as it investigates new opportunities for greenhouse and irrigation system installations in Panama and Uruguay. These opportunities are expected to accelerate Eko2O’s development and strengthen its position as a top supplier of innovative agricultural solutions in cannabis and other sectors that are quickly moving to high technology agricultural production.

In addition, MedCana has started talks with the government in Argentina about possible incentives for beginning operations in that country as part of its ongoing worldwide development strategy. Support from the Argentinean government and the start of new operations there would greatly increase MedCana’s market share in Latin America and solidify the company’s position as the market leader in the cannabis industry.

Market Opportunity

According to a report by Grand View Research, a San Francisco-based market research and consulting company, the global cannabis extract market was valued at $3.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 20% from 2023 to 2030 to be worth more than $15 billion.

Growing demand for cannabis extracts, including oils and tinctures, and the increased legalization of marijuana for the treatment of different chronic ailments like arthritis, Alzheimer’s, anxiety and cancer are driving the expansion of the industry. The marijuana derivative industry is flourishing due to a greater understanding of its various medical benefits.

Management Team

Jose Gabriel Diaz is CEO of MedCana. He has successfully built, grown and sold multiple telecom companies. He was senior vice president of sales at IP Communications, a national high-speed data provider. He also founded Reallinx, a national data carrier later sold to GTT Communications. Additionally, he is currently president of the A.E.M. Business and Entrepreneurship Association in Austin, Texas.

Claudio Jiménez Cartagena, QF, Ph.D. is Chief Scientific Officer at MedCana.

Electric boats offer an impressive list of benefits for boating enthusiasts

New partnership establishes exclusive distributorship agreement for south Florida, includes "milestone" order for VMAR's Phantom

Nautical Ventures Marine Group has ordered 50 units of VMAR's Phantom, a boat constructed from fully recyclable materials

The advantages of electric propulsion are spreading beyond the roads to the waterways. Boat enthusiasts see the importance of sustainability as they consider electric boats, but they are recognizing other perks as well. The swell of support for electric boats can be seen in many ways, including the recent news from Vision Marine Technologies (NASDAQ: VMAR), a global leader and innovator in the performance electric recreational boating industry. The company received a purchase order for 50 units of its Phantom model from Nautical Ventures Marine Group, a premier provider of maritime products and services (

Vision Marine Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: VMAR) is a global leader and innovator within the performance electric recreational boating industry. The company is engaged in designing and manufacturing electric outboard powertrain systems and related technology. It strives to be a guiding force for change and an ongoing driving factor in fighting the problems associated with waterway pollution by disrupting the traditional boating industry with electric power, in turn directly contributing to zero pollution, zero emission and a noiseless environment.

Vision Marine manufactures hand-crafted, highly durable, low maintenance, environmentally friendly electric recreational powerboats. The company’s business segments include the sale and rental of electric boats, with the majority of its revenue attributable to electric boat sales.

The designs and technology applied to Vision Marine’s boats result in enhanced performance, higher speeds and longer range. Put simply, Vision Marine boats offer a smoother ride than a traditional internal combustion engine motorboat.

The company is headquartered in Montreal.


Vision Marine’s flagship E-Motion™ 180E electric marine powertrain is the first fully electric outboard powertrain combining advanced battery pack, inverter and high efficiency motor with proprietary union assembly between the transmission and motor. Vision Marine’s E-Motion and related technologies in this system utilize extensive control software and are uniquely designed to improve the efficiency of the outboard powertrain. As a result, both range and performance are enhanced.

More than a powerful electric outboard motor, the 180E is a complete powertrain package. The high-tech, marine-specific motor is equipped with multi-sensor captors and independent cooling, providing 180 horsepower.

An onboard charging system allows for quick and easy charging from any shore outlet, whether the vessel is in or out of the water. It implements cutting-edge marine battery packs that are IP67 certified and built to withstand the harshest marine environments. The system is glycol cooled with a controlled heat exchanger, ensuring optimal performance and longevity. A stainless-steel casing protects the battery from corrosion and physical damage over time.

The 180E is built to be integrated with many boat models produced by other marine manufacturers. Since boat manufacturers rarely build their own engines, instead choosing to source them from engine manufacturers, Vision Marine believes the 180E propulsion system can in the future end up powering nearly every recreational boat.

Market Opportunity

According to a report from Future Market Insights, a certified market research organization, the global electric boats market is expected to grow from a value of $5.6 billion in 2023 to $15.1 billion by 2033, achieving a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period.

Factors driving growth include rising seaborne commerce activities, a flourishing marine tourism industry and stringent emissions regulations aimed at reducing pollution. In addition, government support for electric speedboat adoption, advances in technological development and research and forecast expansion of needed charging infrastructure are credited as growth drivers.

An emphasis on reducing carbon emissions and encouraging consumer adoption of eco-friendly boats is also likely to drive expansion of the market, the report states.

Management Team

Alexandre Mongeon is Co-Founder and CEO of Vision Marine Technologies. He has served as CEO since 2014. Prior to that, he imported high-performance boats from the United States to Canada for more than 15 years. During much of that time, he also worked as a designer and contractor and managed several new construction projects on the waterfront in and around Montreal. He is a graduate of the School of Construction in Laval, Quebec, with a specialization in electrical systems.

Xavier Montagne is Chief Technical Officer at Vision Marine. Prior to joining the company, he was the CEO of Mac Engineering for six years. While there, he was the electric powerline architect of the Renault Trezor concept car (awarded 2016 Best Concept Car), technical designer of the Zoe E-sport race car driven in Formula-E races from 2016-2019 and senior battery designer for Forsee Power, SAFT, Renault and Peugeot in Europe, to mention a few of the many projects he headed. He received an electronic engineer diploma from IFITEP Paris Polytech in France.

Kulwant Sandher is CFO at Vision Marine. He is a Chartered Professional Accountant with more than 25 years of experience in business and finance.

All ZDPY properties are occupied by commercial cannabis tenants, company anticipates $2.5+ million from its property investment portfolio in 2024

Changing regulations and attitudes towards cannabis use are transforming the industry, leading to new opportunities in the real estate sector. Zoned Properties (OTCQB: ZDPY), a technology-driven property investment company, focuses on seizing direct-to-consumer real estate opportunities in the rapidly growing and regulated cannabis market.

Zoned Properties Inc. (OTCQB: ZDPY) is a technology-driven property investment company focused on acquiring value-add real estate within the regulated cannabis industry in the United States. The company aspires to innovate within the real estate development sector, focusing on direct-to-consumer real estate that is leased to best-in-class cannabis retailers.

The company is redefining the approach to commercial real estate investment through its standardized investment process backed by its proprietary property technology. Zoned Properties has developed a national ecosystem of real estate services to support its real estate development process, including a commercial real estate brokerage and a real estate advisory practice.

With a decade of national experience and a team of experts devoted to the emerging cannabis industry, Zoned Properties is addressing the specific needs of a modern market in highly regulated industries. The company targets commercial properties that face unique zoning or development challenges, identifies solutions that can potentially have a major impact on their commercial value and then works to acquire the properties while securing long-term, absolute-net leases.

Zoned Properties targets commercial properties that can be acquired and rezoned for specific purposes, including the regulated and legalized cannabis industry. It does not grow, harvest, sell or distribute cannabis or any substances regulated under United States law.

The company is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona.


The company’s investment properties are located in Arizona, Michigan and Illinois, with 100% occupancy and a weighted average lease term over 10 years. Each of the company’s leased properties is occupied by a commercial cannabis tenant. The company is expecting rental revenue from its property investment portfolio of greater than $2.5 million in calendar-year 2024.

Zoned Properties maintains a portfolio of properties that it owns, develops and leases. As of February 2024, the company leases land and/or building space at the six properties in its portfolio to licensed and regulated cannabis tenants in areas with established cannabis regulations and zoning procedures. Four of the leased properties are zoned and permitted as regulated cannabis retail dispensaries, and two of the leased properties are zoned and permitted as regulated cannabis cultivation and processing facilities.

The company considers the two cultivation sites in its portfolio as legacy properties and may consider selling or leveraging those properties to unlock equity and create capital availability in the future. The Zoned Properties investment thesis has evolved over the years as the cannabis industry has emerged, and the company is currently focused on investing capital into direct-to-consumer properties, located in state-markets with robust cannabis consumer demand in the industry.

Zoned Properties is in pursuit of property acquisitions that can be characterized as consumer-facing, retail dispensary properties that are positioned to be leased to retail dispensary cannabis tenants under net leasing structures. As of September 2023, the company has agreements in place to acquire new investment properties with new cannabis tenants located in Arizona, Missouri and Illinois. The company plans to initiate and target its investment process in Ohio and Maryland.

With a strategic shift in focus to direct-to-consumer real estate that is leased to best-in-class cannabis retailers in the industry, the company will continue to utilize its competitive edge when identifying excellent investment properties. Zoned Properties has a full pipeline of acquisition prospects and continues to utilize an extremely disciplined capital allocation approach.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX).

Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes, has closed on its registered direct offering. The offering, which was priced in accordance with NASDAQ guidelines, iincluded the sale and issuance of 1,542,112 shares of common stock (or prefunded warrants in lieu thereof) and warrants to purchase up to 1,542,112 shares of common stock.

According to the announcement, the warrants have an exercise price of $4.09 per share and are exercisable on the date of issuance; they will expire five years following the date of issuance. Genprex plans to use the funds from this offering for working capital and general corporate purposes. In addition, the company amended certain existing warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 194,248 shares of GNPX common stock that were previously issued to investors in March 2023 and July 2023. H.C. Wainwright & Co. acted as the exclusive placement agent for the offering.

To view the full press release, visit

Genprex Inc. (GNPX) is a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.

Research and Development

Genprex holds a portfolio of 30 issued and two pending patents covering its technologies and targeted molecular therapies. The company’s research and development program is focused on identifying and developing leading-edge gene therapies that can be used alone or in combination with other therapies for treatment of cancer.

Genprex’s initial product candidate is Oncoprex™, an immunogene therapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Oncoprex works by interrupting cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis (or programmed cell death) in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.

Preclinical research is being conducted with the goal of developing Oncoprex to be administered with targeted therapies in other solid tumors, and with immunotherapies in NSCLC and other solid tumors. In addition, Genprex has conducted and plans to continue research into other tumor suppressor genes associated with chromosome 3p21.3, as well as other potential applications of the company’s immunogene therapy platform.

Clinical Trials

Genprex is currently conducting the second phase of a phase I/II clinical trial at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The company plans to expand its clinical program by adding a new clinical study evaluating Oncoprex™ in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor for treatment of Stage IV or recurrent NSCLC. In research presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., Genprex’s collaborators showed that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 checkpoint inhibition has a significantly greater anti-tumor effect in lung cancer than either agent alone. The research also shows that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 blockade has synergistic activity in upregulating natural killer (NK) cells, correlating with prolonged survival in mice.

TUSC2 (Tumor Suppressor Candidate 2) is a tumor suppressor gene that is absent or deficient in cancer cells of many different cancer types.

The Market

Genprex technologies seek to bridge a critical gap by combining with targeted therapies and immunotherapies to provide treatments to large patient populations who would otherwise not be candidates for those therapies or who have become resistant to them. Genprex technologies are being developed to overcome genomic limitations which are inherent in targeted therapies and immunotherapies in order to provide new treatment solutions to large cancer populations, such as those with lung cancer.

Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for about 85 percent of all lung cancers, according to the American Cancer Society (“ACS”). Despite radical advances in drug development and novel therapeutic standards, survival for late stage lung cancer has not improved significantly in the past 25 years.

Senior Management

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer J. Rodney Varner, JD, is a co-founder of Genprex and has served in these roles since August 2012. He has more than 35 years of legal experience with large and small law firms and as outside general counsel of a Nasdaq-listed company. Varner has served as counsel in company formation, mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, other business transactions, protection of trade secrets and other intellectual property, real estate, and business litigation. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and has been admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Court and the U.S. Tax Court.

Julien L. Pham, M.D., MPH, is president and chief operating officer of Genprex. In March 2013, Dr. Pham co-founded RubiconMD, a healthcare IT company that connects primary care providers to specialists for additional guidance and opinions on medical cases and served as its chief medical officer. He has served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and is a board-certified internal medicine doctor and nephrologist.

Ryan M. Confer, MS, has served as Genprex chief financial officer since September 2016. Confer has more than 10 years of executive experience in planning, launching, developing, and growing emerging technology companies and has served in the chief operating and chief financial roles for non-profit and for-profit entities since 2008. Confer has also served as an international business development consultant for the University of Texas at Austin’s IC2 Institute, where he focused on evaluating the commercialization potential of nascent technologies in domestic and international markets applicable to technology incubator programs associated with the University. Confer holds a BS in finance and legal studies from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and an MS in technology commercialization from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.

Jan Stevens, RN, is vice president of Clinical Operations. Stevens has nearly 20 years of comprehensive clinical operations experience in the biopharma industry and a specialization in early-to-late stage oncology companies. Stevens joined the company to help support the various clinical development programs for Oncoprex™.
