InvestorPlace, QualityStocks, MarketClub Analysis, MarketBeat, StreetInsider, StockMarketWatch,, Greenbackers, Hit and Run Candle Sticks, Barchart, Stock Market Watch, WealthMakers, StockOodles, StreetAuthority Daily, TopStockAnalysts, Wall Street Resources and smartOTC reported earlier on HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (HIVE), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

When cryptocurrencies were first introduced, they promised to deliver low to zero transaction costs, unlimited withdrawals and purchases, fast transaction speeds, and enhanced security and privacy. These features set crypto apart from centralized currencies and attracted millions of users in just a few years. However, the anonymity, security and privacy offered by blockchain also drew in criminals who were looking for a way to move their ill-gotten gains away from the prying eyes of law enforcement.

A 2021 report by blockchain analysis firm Chainalysis revealed that criminals laundered a whopping $8.6 billion in cryptocurrency in 2021 alone. The report stated that criminals are transferring billions of dollars’ worth of cryptos to services that seemed to be tailor-made for money laundering, stating that law enforcement could deal a major blow to crypto-based crime by disrupting these services.

A Europol Report from January points to criminal networks with a flair for large-scale money laundering that have adopted cryptocurrencies and begun offering money-laundering services to other criminals.

During the 6th Global Conference on Criminal Finances and Cryptocurrencies hosted by Europol at The Hague, experts conceded that the proliferation of blockchain and crypto has “facilitated new forms of crime.” Speakers, who included representatives of European law enforcement, speakers and experts from major cryptocurrency analysis firms, said criminals are increasingly adopting crypto as it expands into “practically every nation and sector.”

Cryptos have been involved in match-fixing within sports, drug smuggling and, alarmingly, financing the acquisition, manufacture and possession as well as export of weapons of mass destruction. Even so, Europol believes that blockchain has “unique characteristics” that will allow law enforcement to investigate all forms of organized crime syndicates along with the money laundering networks they use to move their funds. Furthermore, blockchain will also make it possible to recover stolen money.

Addressing organized crime on blockchain will call for the right capacity and tools as well as cooperation, the report observed. Europol stated that regulators, law enforcement, the private sector and all the entities involved in combating crime are already working to address the rise of money laundering via blockchain. This includes recently passed legislation that would ensure cryptos are treated like other assets from a legal perspective.

More specifically, the new regulations will require that crypto exchanges collect and then store identifying data for people making cryptocurrency transactions and turn that data in to authorities conducting money-laundering investigations. This would allow authorities to make definitive strikes against criminal networks that have turned to blockchain to launder their money.

As law enforcement registers successes against criminal entities looking to exploit the strengths of blockchain technology, the entire industry, including companies such as HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: HIVE) (TSX.V: HIVE), is likely to enjoy widespread adoption as it cements its reputation as a technology that is here for everyone’s good.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (HIVE), closed Monday's trading session at $5.12, up 0.195695%, on 1,272,984 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1.268M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.8201/$28.00.

The Russia-Ukraine war has had a domino effect on global coal demand that could significantly benefit coal exporting countries such as Australia. With Russia, which is one of the world’s largest coal suppliers, essentially booted out of the global coal market, Australia has seen its coal prices soar.

Before Russia invaded Ukraine, many European countries had began shutting down their coal-fired power plants in favor of cleaner energy sources. In the wake of Russia’s unprovoked invasion, plenty of countries condemned the attack and urged Russia to cease its war effort and withdraw from Ukraine.

Furthermore, western countries issued a series of economic sanctions against the country, such as cutting down on Russian energy imports to cripple its economy and halt Russia’s unprovoked invasion.

Russia, which is one of the top energy producers in the country, retaliated to these sanctions by cutting gas exports to the rest of Europe, plunging the region into an even deeper energy crisis. European countries were forced to fire up their coal power plants for energy generation despite pledging to move away from coal. And, although some countries turned to cheap Russian coal as a stopgap measure, an impending ban on coal from Russia means they will have to find other alternatives fast.

Australia, currently the fifth-largest producer and second-largest exporter of coal on the planet, has stepped in to fill the shoes left by Russia. Data compiled by OPIS shows that recently spot physical coal at the Newcastle port in Australia was priced at an all-time high of $436.71 per ton. This is almost three times more that the spot physical coal prices at the same time last year.

In addition, ICE Futures Europe reported a 5% price jump to $463.75 a ton for October Newcastle futures, the highest prices have been since January 2016. And benchmark coal prices in Europe have also soared to record highs due to uncertainty over Russian gas exports and predictions for increased coal demand.

High prices have also been fueled by expectations of weather disruptions at key Australia coal mines in the wake of a forecast that predicted heavy La Nina rains in late 2022 that have increased fears of a supply crunch. A note from Morgran Stanley analysts revealed that any “severe disruptions” to coal shipments from Australia could cause the price of high-calorific coal to skyrocket to untold highs. Heavy La Nina rains have impacted Australian coal mines in the past, with coal output from Queensland and New South Wales states being reduced by 20% to 30% during a 2010–2011 severe weather event.

The high prices Australian coal is enjoying on the world market are also benefiting other industry players such as Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) since buyers are scrambling to obtain coal from every source available before winter sets in and energy use hikes.

Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (ARLP), closed Monday's trading session at $25.36, up 0.078927%, on 831,206 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 827,930 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $8.63/$27.63.

InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: INM) is a global leader in the manufacturing and clinical development of rare cannabinoids. InMed is a clinical stage company developing cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drug candidates, as well as manufacturing technologies for pharmaceutical-grade rare cannabinoids.

The company is dedicated to delivering new therapeutic alternatives to treat conditions with high unmet medical needs. The company is also developing a proprietary manufacturing technology to produce pharmaceutical-grade rare cannabinoids in the lab and has recently announced an LOI to acquire a leading rare cannabinoid manufacturer.

Research and Technology

There are more than 100 rare cannabinoids found in only trace amounts in the cannabis plant, together making up less than 1% of the plant’s biomass. InMed is initially focused on the therapeutic benefits of cannabinol (CBN) in diseases with high unmet medical need. Preclinical studies of CBN demonstrated an excellent safety profile and showed CBN has potential for therapeutic benefit over other cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

Evidence suggests there may be great therapeutic potential in rare cannabinoids. Each has a specific chemical structure, and different cannabinoids have been observed to have distinct physiological properties in humans, including therapeutic potential for specific diseases as well as unique safety profiles. CBN is the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in InMed’s two lead programs for dermatological and ocular diseases.

InMed’s most advanced compound, INM-755, is a CBN topical cream under clinical development for the treatment of epidermolysis bullosa, a severe genetic skin disorder. To date, INM-755 has been evaluated in two Phase 1 clinical trials in healthy volunteers. InMed has filed Clinical Trial Applications in several countries as part of a global Phase 2 clinical trial of INM-755 (cannabinol) cream in epidermolysis bullosa. Responses from the National Competent Authorities and Ethics Committees are expected throughout the summer of 2021.

InMed is also involved in developing INM-088, an ocular CBN formulation being researched for the treatment of glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness in the developed world. InMed is currently evaluating several formulations to deliver CBN into the eye to address issues of dosing frequency, side effects and treatment penetration. INM-088 is being designed for topical delivery to the eye. This localized delivery results in very little drug being absorbed or migrating into the bloodstream, thus minimizing potential adverse side effects. INM-088 shows promise to reduce intraocular pressure and provide neuroprotection of the eye.


The limited availability of rare cannabinoids like CBN makes them economically impractical to extract directly from the plant for pharmaceutical use. InMed is developing IntegraSyn, a cannabinoid synthesis manufacturing system to create rare cannabinoids in the lab that are bioidentical to the compounds derived from the cannabis plant. IntegraSyn uses multiple standard pharmaceutical processes and has achieved a cannabinoid yield of 5 grams per liter, surpassing commercial viability and significantly exceeding currently reported industry yields. InMed is now focusing on manufacturing scale-up to larger batch sizes while continuing process optimization, targeting increased cannabinoid yield and further reducing overall cost of goods.

BayMedica Inc. Acquisition

On June 29, 2021, InMed announced it had entered into a non-binding letter of intent to acquire BayMedica Inc., a private company based in Nevada and California that specializes in the manufacture and commercialization of rare cannabinoids.

As noted in the news release, BayMedica is a revenue-stage biotechnology company leveraging its significant expertise in synthetic biology and pharmaceutical chemistry to develop efficient, scalable and proprietary manufacturing approaches to produce high quality, regulatory-compliant rare cannabinoids for consumer applications. BayMedica is currently commercializing the rare cannabinoid CBC (cannabichromene) as a B2B supplier to distributors and manufacturers marketing products in the health and wellness sector. BayMedica is planning additional rare cannabinoid launches for the coming year.

Pursuant to the indicative terms of the LOI, InMed and BayMedica intend to negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement under which InMed would acquire 100% of BayMedica in exchange for 1.6 million InMed common shares to be issued to BayMedica’s equity and convertible debt holders, with any such issued InMed common shares being subject to a six-month contractual hold period.

Market Outlook

There is a rapidly growing demand for rare cannabinoids. However, their low natural concentration makes traditional harvesting of these compounds cost prohibitive. Biosynthesis allows production of rare cannabinoids in the lab that are bioidentical to compounds found in nature, with significantly higher yields which reduce costs. Biosynthesis can produce pharmaceutical-grade, bioidentical, THC-free compounds at a cost that’s 70 to 90 percent less than wholesale prices of naturally harvested rare cannabinoids.

Cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals are expected to overtake the market as rare cannabinoids become less expensive and more available. According to Statista, the value of the consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals in the United States is forecast to grow to $25 billion by 2025 and to $50 billion by 2029, with cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals used to treat health conditions including pain, respiratory conditions, autoimmune conditions and more.

Agreement with KOITO

KOITO Manufacturing Co. Ltd., the world’s premier Tier 1 auto lighting supplier, originally started an evaluation of Cepton’s MMT® based lidars in 2018. In 2020, KOITO made an investment in Cepton aimed at accelerating the company’s development and enabling KOITO’s industrialization of high-performance and high reliability lidar sensors for ADAS and autonomous vehicle (AV) applications.

Through this collaboration, Cepton was able to secure the largest ADAS lidar series production award[1] with General Motors as a sole source in the automotive space. The award covers GM vehicles for the initial period of 2023-2027.

On August 5, 2021, the two companies deepened their relationship when KOITO committed to invest a further $50 million in Cepton’s business through its participation in a Private Investment in Public Equity (PIPE) offering of shares of common stock of Growth Capital Acquisition Corp. in connection with Cepton’s recent merger.

Collaboration with GM

On July 13, 2021, Cepton announced that it had secured an ADAS lidar series production award from a leading, Detroit-based global automotive OEM – the biggest lidar production award by any OEM to any lidar company. It was later clarified that the OEM was General Motors, and Cepton’s lidar is part of GM’s ADAS Ultra Cruise system.

GM is “expected to deploy Cepton lidars in its next generation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) across multiple vehicle classes and models – not just luxury cars.” As such, the agreement marks the potential for “an industry-first, mass-market adoption of lidar technology for automotive ADAS, with an anticipated deployment in consumer vehicles starting in 2023.”

On July 28, 2021, Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) distributed an article on Medium noting, “Ford has been engaged with Cepton almost since their inception in 2016, both for R&D collaboration and small-scale deployments. Cepton LiDAR are deployed in some of [Ford’s] smart city projects. Based on Ford’s guidance, Cepton delivered a custom version of their LiDAR to enable R&D on advanced ADAS features.”

FuelPositive Corp. (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTC: NHHHF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight FuelPositive Corp. (NHHHF).

FuelPositive (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) has announced that it will be addressing attendees of the H.C. Wainwright 24th Global Investment Conference being held in New York from Sept. 12 to 14, 2022. The company’s CEO and Board Chair Ian Clifford will be providing a corporate update to conference attendees, as well as meeting with a series of registered investors, both in person and virtually. FuelPositive’s presentation, for which the main focus will be the company’s onsite, containerized green ammonia production system, is scheduled for Sept. 12 at 3 p.m. ET. Interested parties should visit to register for the conference and/or book a meeting with FuelPositive.

FuelPositive Corp. (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTC: NHHHF) is a growth stage company focused on licensing, partnership and acquisition opportunities building upon various technological achievements. The company is committed to providing commercially viable and sustainable clean energy solutions, including carbon-free ammonia (NH3), for use across a broad spectrum of industries and applications.

FuelPositive is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

Hydrogen Economy Problems and FuelPositive’s Carbon-Free Technology

The hydrogen economy is currently facing many challenges. Traditional NH3 manufacturing exists on a massive scale, but centralized facilities result in some of the world’s most concentrated CO2 emissions. In total, an estimated 200 million metric tonnes of NH3 are consumed each year, with greater than 80% utilized by the agricultural sector. NH3 is also being positioned as a viable alternative to fossil fuels.

FuelPositive’s flagship carbon-free ammonia technology provides an innovative solution to these environmental concerns. Developed by Dr. Ibrahim Dincer and his team, the company’s platform allows for the in-situ production of NH3 in an entirely sustainable manner, using only water, air and sustainable electricity.

The production of hydrogen is energy intensive, but it is just one variable hindering the growth of the hydrogen economy. Other hurdles include:

  • Storage – The storage of hydrogen by compression or liquification are both cost prohibitive and unsustainable.
  • Distribution – The distribution network for effective hydrogen deployment has yet to be developed, as the extreme high-pressure distribution requirements to transport hydrogen would result in enormous infrastructure costs.
  • End Use – R&D on the transportation-related end use applications for hydrogen is in its infancy, but almost any vehicle on the road today can be easily converted to run on NH3 at a considerably lower cost per mile traveled when compared to traditional fossil fuels.

A key benefit of FuelPositive’s patent-pending, first-of-its-kind carbon-free NH3 technology is its flexibility. The process allows for small, medium or large-scale production of NH3 on location, minimizing or even eliminating the challenges and volatility associated with storage and transportation to end use. As such, with an appropriately sized FuelPositive system and access to renewable energy, the end use applications for the company’s platform are nearly infinite.

Manufacturing Partnership

On May 19, 2021, FuelPositive announced its selection of National Compressed Air Canada Ltd. (“NCA”) to undertake manufacturing of the company’s Phase 2 hydrogen-ammonia synthesizer commercial prototype systems for carbon-free ammonia production.

In a news release detailing the partnership, FuelPositive CEO Ian Clifford noted, “This critical milestone for FuelPositive will confirm the broad application potential for our technology and is the backbone of our Carbon-Free Hydrogen-NH3 offering. Partnering with the knowledgeable and experienced team at NCA on this commercialization project will bring our development-stage program to life.”

Global Ammonia Market Outlook

The global ammonia market was valued at $52.71 billion in 2017 and is forecast to reach $81.42 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.59%, according to data from Fior Markets (

The agricultural industry consumes more than 80% of global NH3. Smaller percentages can be attributed to the waste, water treatment, refrigerants, antiseptic, textile, mining and pharmaceutical industries.

One of the most polluting industries on the planet consists of conventional agribusinesses. These polluters are responsible for more greenhouse emissions per year than transportation. This is where FuelPositive’s technology is expected to be extremely beneficial.

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.

American Cannabis Partners

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight American Cannabis Partners.

Decades of cannabis policing have significantly impacted society, especially among Black and Brown communities that were much more likely to be arrested and incarcerated for cannabis offenses despite similar use rates to White people. More than two decades after states first started legalizing cannabis, tens of thousands of people are still affected by cannabis convictions, either languishing in jail or failing to integrate into society due to their criminal records. For most cannabis reform activists, efforts to legalize the drug have had a major focus on social and criminal justice to help alleviate the damage done by the decades-long war on drugs. This has often been through provisions requiring social equity applicants to be given a leg up in their state cannabis industries as well as the expungement of prior cannabis records. Sealing and expunging prior cannabis offenses has been a talking point of most activists in the country as having a criminal record can have lifelong negative impacts on an individual. These moves on the criminal justice front complement the other benefits that come from legalization and allowing state-legal companies such as American Cannabis Partners to operate and provide jobs, pay taxes and boost the local economy.

American Cannabis Partners (ACP) is a multi-state cannabis company with 560,000 square feet of licensed canopy space for cultivation and one retail license. The company is nationally headquartered in Trinity County of Northern California’s Emerald Triangle.

ACP is focused on three complementary business segments: real estate, acquisition & development of proprietary assets, and ongoing cultivation operations. Led by a seasoned management team with 30+ years of canna-business experience, ACP’s strategy is to capture opportunities in real estate and licensing in states that have recently passed cannabis legalization legislation, thereby equipping the company to capitalize on Federal interstate commerce opportunities.

Through its current cultivation operations, ACP supplies approximately 80% of its whole flower products for manufacturing, distribution and retail licenses. With the remaining 20%, the company supplies its proprietary strains to select California distributors and its own Michigan retail location under its exclusive in-house brand, ZÜK.

History of American Cannabis Partners

In 2014, Stephen Jordan, President of ACP, took on the Director of Operations position for a U.S.-based company operating in the Jamaican cannabis space. Over the course of his three-year tenure in this role, Jordan developed a number of relationships that would help serve as the basis of American Cannabis Partners.

One such relationship was with Junior Gordon, a cultivation lead grower from Jamaica’s Westmoreland Parish. Jordan immediately saw the value of Gordon’s unique skillset and credentials, and Gordon recognized Jordan’s heartfelt vision of bringing Jamaican culture to the rapidly developing U.S. cannabis space.

Guided by that mission, ACP’s unchanging goal is to improve the lives of individuals through cannabis and business.

Current Operations

Since its founding in 2018, privately-owned American Cannabis Partners has established a foothold in two key U.S. cannabis markets – California and Michigan. In total, the company has acquired 12 cannabis licenses, including 20,000 sq. ft. of cultivation licenses in California and 540,000 sq. ft. of cultivation licenses & one retail license in Michigan.

ACP’s IP portfolio features three proprietary strains sold exclusively through the company’s wholly owned ZÜK brand, as well as proprietary data collection and mining systems supporting its cultivation and retail operations.

Plans for Expansion

American Cannabis Partners is pursuing additional growth in the cannabis sector through multiple planned initiatives. These include:

  • Submitting applications for additional cultivation licenses at the company’s Trinity County, California, location;
  • Planning land acquisition and project development strategies for expanding operations to its third U.S. state beginning in the second quarter of 2022; and
  • Planning land acquisition and project development strategies for expanding operations to its fourth U.S. state beginning in the second quarter of 2024.

ACP is currently exploring expansion opportunities through partnerships and joint ventures in New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Nevada, Arizona, Missouri and Massachusetts.

Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX).

After decades of cannabis criminalization and anti-cannabis propaganda, certain stereotypes about cannabis users have become entrenched in the public mind. The stereotypical image of a cannabis user as an apathetic “lazy stoner” who spends his days getting high, polishing off Doritos and generally contributing nothing to society is one example. Tons of people, especially older generations that grew up in the era of the drug war, tend to believe this stereotype. However, a new study has revealed that the stereotype of cannabis users as unmotivated and lazy is far from factual. Researchers found that there was no difference in reward-based behavior and apathy among people who used cannabis at least once a week and people who didn’t use cannabis at all. Furthermore, the researchers discovered that cannabis users tend to experience more pleasure than people who abstain from using cannabis. As more of these baseless stereotypes are disproved by science, the world is likely to see more people trying cannabis and even taking an additional step forward by growing their own plants using the handy micro gardens commercialized by companies such as Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX).

Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX) is in the business of selling and distributing self-contained, automated, indoor “micro-farms” called Grow Pods, along with related equipment and supplies. Additionally, the company designs and sells patented proprietary medical-grade plastic containers, known as the Medtainer®, that store and grind pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids.

ACTX is the leading distributor of Grow Pods. With a controlled environment, food and herbs can be grown without pesticides, harmful chemicals or risk of pathogen contamination, and with low energy consumption. Restaurants, grocery stores, non-profits, MSOs and entrepreneurs can use Grow Pods to ensure a fresh supply of ultra-clean produce year-round.

The company entered the Grow Pod business in October 2020 with its acquisition of all shares of Advanced Container Technologies Inc., a California corporation. As of February 28, 2022, ACTX is exploring the acquisition of the assets and the assumption of some or all of the liabilities of GP Solutions Inc., the developer and manufacturer of Grow Pods, for which ACTX is currently the sole U.S. distributor.

Because Grow Pods can be located almost anywhere, produce can be grown closer to the point of consumption and harvested at its peak, providing nutritious fruits and vegetables where needed. Indoor micro-farms, utilizing a practice known as vertical farming, have attracted the attention of governments and universities, which are now promoting vertical farming as a way to combat food insecurity and inequities.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has stated that vertical farming “is no longer a futuristic concept.” The department is enthusiastic about vertical farming, particularly those utilizing repurposed shipping containers, such as Grow Pods. Arizona State University reports that vertical farming reduces water use by 90 percent compared to conventional farming but produces 10 times the crop yield.


Grow Pods

One of the company’s main business units is focused on selling advanced, self-contained hydroponic containers called Grow Pods. These unique and innovative automated systems are essentially micro-farms that can be placed virtually anywhere and, with their controlled and specially filtered environment, allow cultivation of a wide variety of crops, 365 days a year. The Grow Pod controlled environment offers major advantages for the production of high-value crops. The ability to grow year-round and the ability to cultivate in a smaller footprint using less water and power are some of the primary advantages of the system. Grow Pods offer constant temperature, humidity and airflow control, as well as automated watering and lighting schedules for optimal growth and minimal labor requirements, regardless of crop.


ACTX meets the needs of the pharmaceutical and medical markets, including the cannabis and hemp industries, with patented packaging systems. The company designs, customizes, brands and sells proprietary medical grade plastic containers that can store pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids, with a special built-in feature that can grind solids and shred herbs. The company’s flagship container product is the patented Medtainer®, a child resistant, medical-grade herb container and grinder that is water-tight, air-tight and smell proof. Packaging in the cannabis industry is critical, with numerous stringent regulations about how cannabis products must be packaged and labeled. ACTX also offers custom-branded, compliant vacuum seal bags and other retail container solutions.

Equipment and Supplies

ACTX markets and sells two principal products: Grow Pods, which are specially modified insulated shipping containers manufactured by GP Solutions Inc., in which plants, herbs and spices may be grown hydroponically in a controlled environment, and Medtainers®, which may be used to store pharmaceuticals, herbs, teas and other solids or liquids and can grind solids and shred herbs. The company also markets and sells various products related to Grow Pods and the Medtainer®, as well as providing private labeling and branding services for purchasers of Medtainers® and certain related products.

GP Solutions manufactures and sells other products, such as humidity controllers and LED lighting systems for vertical farming. The company’s specially designed lighting panels are programmed to emit the exact wavelength of light that each crop requires. The system has a daybreak-to-nightfall feature that gives plants the proper chromatic signals to grow rapidly and fruitfully. High efficiency LED light strips supply the crops with a red and blue light spectrum required for photosynthesis in the spectrum that plants need most.

Market Overview

The global vertical farming market is expected to reach $33.02 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research. The market is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 25.5 percent from 2022 to 2030, according to Grand View. Escalating production of biopharmaceutical products, including cannabis, is anticipated to drive the market. The building-based segment of the market is expected to register a significant CAGR of 27.8 percent over the projected period. In addition, the climate control segment is expected to see high growth.

The global cannabis packaging market is expected to reach $14.34 billion by 2028, according to analysis by Reports and Data. The analysis forecasts 1,700 percent growth in cannabis users by the end of 2026, with packaging likely observing a whopping 26.42 percent growth in the forecast period. There are significant barriers to entry in the cannabis packaging market, giving an advantage to companies already established in the sector. These barriers include developing a thorough knowledge of the myriad regulations that govern cannabis packaging (which differ in each state), and child-resistance requirements.

  • Goldman Sachs’s yearly report on the global music industry expects music streaming revenues to reach $89.3 billion in 2030, with paid streaming contributing $55.6 billion and ad-funded streaming contributing $33.7 billion of the total
  • Friendable’s 360-degree artist platform offers independent music artists the tools they need to produce, distribute, and market their music while generating (and keeping) revenue

The highly coveted yearly music industry update released by Goldman Sachs strives to answer the billion-dollar question – how much will the music industry be worth in 2030? The update suggests that global music streaming revenues will reach $89.3 billion in 2030, with paid streaming contributing $55.6 billion and ad-funded streaming contributing $33.7 billion. Goldman Sachs analyst Lisa Yang and a team of colleagues penned the company's report citing that the reduced increase in its projection numbers is driven by higher paid streaming annual revenue per user and ad-funded streaming assumptions. The decrease also includes the decline in physical sales ( On average, artists lose 90% of streaming revenue to record labels, 10% to booking agents, and 15-20% of overall income to managers. The fees are not the only problem; most artists feel a lack of support and a lack of control, in addition to their financially burdensome strict financial contracts. In the changing landscape of the music industry, labels must be willing to adapt, and Friendable’s (OTC: FDBL) 360-degree streaming artist platform offers the solution for them to do that.

Friendable Inc. (FDBL) is a mobile technology and marketing company focused on connecting and engaging users through its proprietary mobile and desktop applications. Launched July 24, 2020, the company’s flagship offering is designed to help artists engage with their fans around the world and earn revenue while doing so. The livestreaming platform supports artists at all levels, providing exclusive artist content ‘Channels’, LIVE event streaming, promotional support, fan subscriptions and custom merchandise designs, all of which serve as revenue streams for each artist.

With Fan Pass, artists can offer exclusive content channels to their fans, who can use their smartphones to gain access to their favorite artists, as well as an all-access pass to all artists on the platform. Additionally, the Fan Pass team will deploy social broadcasters to capture exclusive VIP experiences, interviews and behind-the-scenes content featuring their favorite artists – all available to fan subscribers on a free trial basis. Subscriptions are billed monthly at $3.99, or about the cost of downloading a couple of songs, and VIP experiences are available at a fraction of the cost of traditional face-to-face meetups.

Friendable Inc. was founded by Robert A. Rositano Jr. and Dean Rositano, two brothers with over 27 years of experience working together on technology-related ventures.

The Fan Pass Mobile & Desktop App

Friendable Inc. launched its Fan Pass platform as a solution for artists and their fans as the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated shutdown have continued to severely hamstring the entertainment industry as a whole. Through Fan Pass, the company aims to reach artists at all levels looking to alter their touring schedules to include ‘Virtual Touring’, new revenue sources and innovative fan engagement opportunities that are expected to become permanent fixtures of artists’ touring routines moving forward.

Fan Pass creates an ecosystem that embraces fans of all kinds, feeding diehard followers and developing lasting connections with more casual supporters. Through the app, qualified artists are provided with a custom designed, exclusive ’Fan Pass Channel’ where they can invite fans and social followers from anywhere around the world to join in chats and live events – allowing fans to experience all there is to see of an artist in one place. Artists earn revenue from monthly fan subscribers, merchandise sales, tickets sold for virtual streaming events and generally from all content views or impressions on their channels. All content views and sales of every kind are reported to each artist through their dashboards, including real-time payout and earnings information.

Fan Pass’ exclusive ‘All Access VIP’ option provides fans with access to content, such as:

  • Live performances or online concerts
  • Backstage meetups before, during or after events
  • Livestreams of studio sessions
  • Behind-the-scenes footage of music video and photo shoots
  • Special interviews and one-on-one videos
  • Streams highlighting the artists’ daily lives

The Fan Pass platform is extremely intuitive, bringing each artist through a streamlined onboarding process, including building out artist ‘Channels’, scheduling LIVE events and designing special edition merchandise to be offered solely through exclusive Fan Pass merchandise stores.

“With the global pandemic disrupting the entertainment industry in such a profound way, artists have had to look to digital distribution and live virtual performances in order to maintain any earning opportunities. Fan Pass and our team are determined to provide solutions and support to all artists, their fans and the industry in general. We are excited about the opportunity we have to shape the future of virtual entertainment, revenue generation and artist/fan engagement,” Robert A. Rositano Jr., CEO of Friendable Inc., stated in a news release.

Market Opportunity

Artists rely heavily on revenue streams that are not often seen by those without intimate industry knowledge. When it comes to traditional performances, the sale of VIP/backstage or meet & greet passes to boost revenue can often become the majority of the artist’s annual tour revenue. Data provided by one of the company’s original entertainment partners, The Kluger Agency (TKA), suggests that as much as 18-23% of artists’ annual tour revenue has historically been derived from these VIP experiences.

The World Economic Forum reports that, in 2020, the six-month-plus disappearance of live music concerts is estimated to have cost “the industry more than $10 billion in sponsorships,” and individual artists are feeling the loss the most. Fan Pass is helping to bridge this gap, providing more affordable virtual VIP experiences that can be offered simultaneously to fans around the world.

While it’s free for artists to join, Fan Pass leverages a monthly subscription model paid by fans to generate revenues. These revenues are shared with all channel artists. In exchange for its platform features, live streaming tools, bandwidth, processing and handling, Fan Pass earns platform fees on each separately ticketed event, as well as splits with each artist on subscriber fees and merchandise designed and sold on the platform.

The U.S. video streaming industry is expected to hit $7.08 billion in value in 2021, with an estimated 100 million internet users watching online video content every day, according to data from The same report suggests that 45% of live video audiences would pay for exclusive, on-demand video from a favorite team, speaker or performer. Through Fan Pass, Friendable Inc. is uniquely positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.

Friendable App

The company’s second application, Friendable, is an all-inclusive platform where users can meet, chat and date. The app has exceeded 1.5 million total downloads, with over 900,000 historical registered users and more than 580,000 historical user profiles.

Friendable Inc.’s Next Phase of Growth

To facilitate its next phase of growth, Friendable Inc. is seeking an additional $1 million in equity investment, with a follow-on funding that meets or exceeds $5 million. The company intends to utilize its relationships to secure the lowest cost of capital available, as these funds will drive technology advancements, increase head count, fund marketing initiatives and secure additional celebrity talent aimed at bringing larger fan audiences to each released event. These initiatives will assist in building recurring monthly (fan) subscribers, effectively generating recurring monthly revenue for each artist, as well. The next phase of growth is expected to play a key role in accelerating the company’s download and conversion of data for subscription revenue and merchandise sales.

The company’s primary goal is to establish Fan Pass as a premier brand and mobile platform dedicated to connecting and engaging users around the world. In support of this goal, it has entered into a partnership with Brightcove targeting OTT platform expansion, including leaders such as iOS, Android, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku and WWW.

In the highly competitive video streaming market, Friendable Inc. has tapped into an unmet demand from today’s ever-present ‘omni-users’ for constant contact with celebrities and influencers. Via Fan Pass, the company offers investors an opportunity to gain a stake in an organization catering to this new breed of omni-users and their influencers.

The application’s potential is clearly illustrated by the interest it has generated in recent weeks. From September 4 to October 12, the Fan Pass platform added 246 new artists, accounting for a 410 percent increase in just six weeks.

“We are extremely encouraged by the ongoing swell of interest as the value of our Fan Pass platform continues to resonate in the artist community,” Friendable CEO Robert A. Rositano Jr. stated in a news release. “We believe the live streaming functionality, our full-circle offering and diverse revenue opportunities the platform offers will continue to drive exponential growth as management remains focused on building long-term shareholder value.”

QSAM Biosciences Inc. (OTCQB: QSAM)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight QSAM Biosciences Inc. (OTCQB: QSAM).

Osteosarcoma is a rare bone cancer that most often affects the long bones in the legs and arms. Although it occurs most often in young adults, older adults and younger children are also at risk of developing osteosarcoma. This type of bone cancer is often characterized by bone pain and swelling, with younger people usually experiencing these symptoms around the upper arms or knees. The National Organization for Rare Disorders estimates that some 750 to 1,000 individuals are diagnosed with the disease each year in the United States with some 450 of them being the age of 20. Furthermore, recent research has revealed that Black individuals aged 10 to 24 years old are more likely to develop osteosarcoma compared to other racial/ethnic groups. Research is also taking place with the aim of finding effective treatments for osteosarcoma. For example, QSAM Biosciences Inc. (OTCQB: QSAM) has a drug in clinical development targeting pediatric osteosarcoma. The success and eventual approval of this formulation could go a long way toward helping patients suffering from this debilitating condition.

QSAM Biosciences Inc. (OTCQB: QSAM) is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on bringing to market targeted therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals. The company is committed to advancing the fight against cancer through the discovery, development and delivery of effective treatment options for adult and pediatric patients.

QSAM Biosciences was founded in 2020 by Executive Chairman Dr. C. Richard Piazza and CEO Douglas Baum. It is headquartered in Austin, Texas.


CycloSam®, QSAM Biosciences’ initial technology, is a clinical-stage bone targeting radiopharmaceutical invented by world-renowned scientists at IsoTherapeutics Group LLC. By leveraging a patented, low specific activity form of Samarium-153 (resulting in far less undesirable europium impurity) and what management believes to be a superior chelating agent in DOTMP, CycloSam is designed to selectively target sites of high bone mineral turnover to deliver a prescribed tumor-killing dose of radiation to the bone tumor sites while minimizing radiation exposure to nearby healthy tissue. These parameters are currently being tested in an FDA-cleared clinical trial.

CycloSam® has been shown in laboratory testing to cause significantly less (30x less) buildup of long-lived radionuclidic impurities than prior FDA-approved drugs, which management believes will enable the ability to safely administer therapeutic doses via higher and multiple-dose regimens and effectively expand its potential clinical utility to therapeutic uses in areas of high unmet medical needs.

The indications for CycloSam® currently being evaluated by QSAM Biosciences include:

  • Metastatic Bone Cancers – On April 28, 2022, QSAM Biosciences announced that the first patient had commenced treatment in its clinical trial evaluating CycloSam in patients with metastatic bone cancer. As noted in the release, the study is a Phase 1 open-label, dose-escalation trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability, dosimetry, and preliminary efficacy of CycloSam®.
  • Pediatric Osteosarcoma/Ewing’s Sarcoma – On February 2, 2022, the company announced that the U.S. FDA has granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to CycloSam for the treatment of osteosarcoma. Combined with a previously granted orphan drug designation for osteosarcoma received in 2021, this milestone “may allow QSAM to potentially bring CycloSam® to market more rapidly through additional incentives and eligibilities,” according to CEO Douglas Baum.
  • Bone Marrow Ablation – In a 2020 single patient Investigational New Drug (IND) study, an investigator concluded that high-dose CycloSam® can be administered safely to ablate bone marrow in advance of a stem cell transplant with no apparent renal toxicity and no unexpected adverse events attributable to the drug.

QSAM Biosciences’ preclinical and clinical development pipeline is supported by a strong IP portfolio. The company has secured 14 patents across three distinct patent families spanning the U.S., Japan, Canada and the European Union.

Market Outlook

Through its ongoing development of CycloSam®, QSAM Biosciences is targeting multiple large and underserved market opportunities. According to the American Cancer Society, roughly 400,000 new cases of malignant bone metastasis are diagnosed annually in the U.S. alone. Additionally, QSAM will pursue indications for osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma that are the most common primary malignancies of bone tissues in children.

Despite this pressing need, the current standard of care for bone cancer is aggressive and suboptimal, leading to marginal success with significant side effects and poor long-term survival prognosis. As a result, QSAM Biosciences estimates a sizable market opportunity for its development pipeline.

  • Bone Metastasis has an estimated total addressable market of $20 billion in the U.S. based on total new cases and comparable drug pricing.
  • Osteosarcoma/Ewing’s Sarcoma have a total addressable market of roughly $125 million in the U.S. based on approximately 1,000 new cases in 2021.
  • The total addressable market for Bone Marrow Ablation is projected at $1 billion, with an estimated 32,000 procedures completed annually.

The company anticipates that the ability to administer CycloSam® for higher and multiple-dose regimens may expand its clinical utility for therapeutic uses in additional areas of high unmet medical needs.

Lexaria began developing DehydraTECH in 2014 and has since continued to strengthen and broaden the technology. The company has no plans to create or sell Lexaria-branded products containing controlled substances. Instead, Lexaria licenses its technology to other companies around the world to offer consumers the best possible performance across an array of ingestible product formats.

The company’s technology is best thought of as an additional layer that providers of consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription drugs, nicotine and CBD products can utilize to improve the effectiveness of their own existing or planned new offerings. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies, including a world-leading tobacco producer for the research and development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products, and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products.

DehydraTECH is suitable for use with a wide range of product formats including pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, consumer packaged goods and over-the-counter capsules, pills, tablets and oral suspensions.

DehydraTECH Technology

Lexaria’s DehydraTECH is designed specifically for formulating and delivering lipophilic (fat-soluble) drugs and active ingredients. DehydraTECH increases their effectiveness and improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients enter the bloodstream. The major benefits to a subject ingesting a DehydraTECH-enabled drug or consumer product can be summarized by the following:

  • Speeds up delivery – the effects of the product are felt by the subject in just minutes.
  • Increases bioavailability – the technology is much more effective at delivering a drug or product into the bloodstream.
  • Increases brain absorption – animal testing suggests significant improvement in the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier.
  • Improves drug potency – more of the ingested product is made available to the body, so lower doses are required to achieve the desired effect.
  • Reduces drug administration cost – lower doses mean lower overall drug costs.
  • Masks unwanted taste – the technology eliminates or reduces the need for sweeteners.

Lexaria has demonstrated in animal studies a propensity for DehydraTECH technology to elevate the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier by as much as 1,900 percent, initiating additional new patent applications and opening possibilities for improved drug delivery.

Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated, with cannabinoids and nicotine, the ability to increase bio-absorption by up to five to 10 times, reduce time of onset from one to two hours to just minutes, and mask unwanted tastes. The technology is to be further evaluated for additional orally administered bioactive molecules, including antivirals, cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine.

Market Outlook

Lexaria’s ongoing research and development efforts are mainly focused on development of product candidates across several key segments:

  • Oral Cannabinoids – a market estimated to be worth $18.4 billion in 2021 and expected to reach $46.2 billion by 2025.
  • Antivirals – an estimated $52.1 billion market in 2021 that’s expected to grow to $66.7 billion by 2025.
  • Oral Mucosal Nicotine – smokeless tobacco products, a $13.6 billion market in 2018, is forecast to grow at 7.2 percent annually through 2025.
  • Human Hormones – estrogen and testosterone replacement therapies represented a $21.9 billion market in 2019, with a forecast CAGR of 7.7 percent through 2027.
  • Ibuprofen and Naproxen – NSAID sales totaled $15.6 billion globally in 2019 and are projected to reach $24.4 billion by 2027.
  • Vitamin D3 – the global market size was $1.1 billion in 2021, growing at 7 percent per year and expected to reach $1.7 billion in 2026.

Odyssey Group International Inc. (OTC: ODYY)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Odyssey Group International Inc. (OTC: ODYY).

  • Medical costs for concussions total $20 billion in the United States, a need for which there is no FDA-approved treatment
  • The CDC estimates that more than 50% of people suffering a traumatic brain injury become moderately or severely disabled and have shorter life spans
  • Odyssey provides a portfolio of diverse technologies and related medical products to meet the unmet medical needs of concussion and TBI patients

Each year, medical costs in the United States for concussions total $20 billion ($400 billion worldwide). There is a significant unmet medical need for treatments for concussions in the medical landscape, with most diagnosed patients sent home with a standard of care involving rest, analgesics for headaches, and anti-depressants. Repeat concussions can lead to early dementia and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (“CTE”), with the likelihood of athlete head injury recurrence totaling 75% ( Currently, there is no FDA-approved drug treatment for concussions, with the CDC noting that about 50% of people with traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) will experience decline in their daily lives or die within five years of their injury, while 57% will become moderately or severely disabled ( Odyssey Health (OTC: ODYY), a medical technology company focused on lifesaving medical products that offer technological and clinical advantages over current standards of care, is moving forward in its quest to meet the unmet needs of concussion patients. Recently, the company announced that its investigational agent PRV-002, a fully synthetic, nonnaturally occurring neurosteroid intended to treat concussion, was reported to be safe and well tolerated in a small cohort of volunteers. The company is currently in the process of selecting clinical sites and developing the Investigator’s Brochure for a Phase 2 trial (

Odyssey Group International Inc. (OTC: ODYY) is a medical technology company focused on developing lifesaving medical products that offer technological and clinical advantages over current standards of care.

The company’s portfolio of product technologies is diverse, featuring four unique medical products in development. Odyssey’s goal is to deliver superior products with enhanced clinical utility and market potential, thereby yielding a high rate of return for its shareholders and partners. It is guided by a senior management team with significant experience relating to refining technologies, building commercial systems and forging strategic partnerships.

Product Portfolio


Odyssey has two pharmaceutical products in development:

  • PRV-002 is a novel compound for the treatment of concussion, which currently has no FDA-approved drug. In pre-clinical studies, PRV-002 has been shown to significantly improve both neuroscore and memory score following injury in rats subjected to concussion models. Importantly, the first-in-class novel neurosteroid demonstrated no drug-related toxicity in these trials.
    • PRV-002 is currently being evaluated in a phase I clinical trial for the treatment of concussion, with phase II trials planned for launch in Fall 2022. Odyssey has also highlighted the potential of PRV-002 for additional indications such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and chromic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
  • PRV-001 is a novel compound intended to treat Niemann-Pick disease, a rare neurodegenerative-lysosomal storage disorder that affects an estimated 1 in 150,000 individuals in the U.S., demonstrating a 5x higher incidence in Middle Eastern populations.
    • Odyssey expects to receive Orphan Drug designation from the FDA for PRV-001, which would accelerate its pathway to FDA approval and provide seven years of market exclusivity.

Medical Devices

Odyssey is also developing two medical device candidates:

  • CardioMap® is intended to provide early, non-invasive testing for heart disease. The system offers a number of potential advantages over traditional EKGs, including requiring less training to operate, offering heightened sensitivity and coming in a small and portable form factor. CardioMap is being developed for a 510(k) regulatory pathway, which requires a study to demonstrate equivalence to legacy EKG offerings.
    • When approved, CardioMap is expected to be the only device in its class that has a predictive value, illustrating ‘grey’ areas where deterioration has begun but not yet led to pathology. Odyssey expects this feature to provide a powerful incentive for doctors to use the CardioMap device in end markets such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, rehabilitation centers and sports medicine practices.
  • Save-A-Life (SAL) is a patented, single-action, instantaneous, handheld, mechanical anti-choking device that creates a vacuum chamber in the mouth to dislodge throat obstructions in a matter of seconds, all without harm to the victim. The device is currently in development, with a proof of concept established.
    • Odyssey believes that, once FDA-approved, its anti-choking device will quickly become the “accepted” standard and leader in the treatment of choking incidents globally. Its low-cost manufacturing and convenient portable design give SAL a competitive edge over competing devices utilizing cumbersome masks.

Market Opportunities

Odyssey’s varied development pipeline positions it to address a number of sizable market opportunities with significant unmet medical need. Concussions alone currently account for medical costs of roughly $10-15 billion annually in the U.S., despite the lack of a currently approved FDA drug treatment. This need is particularly apparent in the military and sports industry, where the likelihood of athlete head-injury recurrence is estimated at 75%.

It is for this reason that, in March 2021, Odyssey announced the formation of a sports advisory board featuring well-known athletes supporting the company’s efforts to enhance public awareness of traumatic brain injuries and concussions, as well as the need for an FDA-approved therapy. Members of Odyssey’s sports advisory board include NFL Hall of Famers Kurt Warner & Brett Favre and two-time Olympic gold medalist Abby Wambach.

With its CardioMap platform, Odyssey is targeting the global cardiac monitoring market, which was valued at $28 billion in 2021 by Insight Partners and forecast to reach $43 billion by 2028.

Save-A-Life targets a similarly underserved market. Choking is the fourth-leading cause of death in children, and approximately 5,000 choking deaths occur each year in the U.S. While 95% of these deaths result from in-home incidents, current choking rescue devices fail to address in-home applications.

Management Team

Joseph Michael Redmond is the President, CEO and Chairman of Odyssey. He has over 30 years of commercial experience in medical device companies, previously serving as CEO of Parallax Health Sciences Inc., V.P. of Business Development for DxTech Inc. and V.P. of Sales and Marketing for Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. While at Bioject, Mr. Redmond helped raise over $15 million in capital, entered into several licensing and distribution deals with major biotech and pharmaceutical companies and grew the market cap of the company from under $10 million to over $400 million. He started his career at Abbott Labs and holds a B.A. from Denison University.

Christine M. Farrell is the company’s CFO and Secretary. Prior to joining Odyssey, Ms. Farrell was Vice President of Finance for Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. She also held accounting and financial management positions with Spar-Tek Industries, a manufacturer of high quality and cutting-edge technology for the plywood industry, and Action Machinery, a seller of new and used robotic machine tools and equipment. Ms. Farrell holds a B.A. in Accounting from the University of Washington and an M.B.A. from Willamette University.

Dr. Jacob W. Vanlandingham is Odyssey’s Head of Drug Development. Dr. Vanlandingham holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience with a molecular biology focus. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, American Society for Nutritional Sciences, National Neurotrauma Society, Faculty for Undergraduate Research in Neuroscience and the International Association of Medical Science Educators.

Odyssey Group International Inc. (OTC: ODYY), closed Monday's trading session at $0.147, off by 0.675676%, on 37,040 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 37,040 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.11/$0.64.
