One year after President Joe Biden ordered a mass cannabis pardon and called for a review of marijuana’s status at the federal level, advocates and lawmakers are pushing for more marijuana action. President Biden based part of his campaign on cannabis reform and pledged to do things such as pardon Americans with cannabis-related convictions, something his administration set out to do a year ago.

However, cannabis advocates and lawmakers have long argued that the administration could do more to further cannabis reform in the country, calling on the Biden administration to fulfill its cannabis promises in full and on time.

Most agree that last year’s mass pardon followed by the directive to review marijuana’s federal status were major steps in the right direction. However, now that the mass pardon’s first anniversary has arrived, activists and lawmakers are urging the administration to take its cannabis action even further with the ultimate goal of finally putting an end to federal cannabis prohibition.

According to Congressional Cannabis Caucus cochair Representative Earl Blumenauer, the president must “send a clearer signal” that he fully supports cannabis legalization at the federal level. While Biden’s pardon and his call for a scheduling review were a critical step in the right direction, Blumenauer said “more is needed” to further cannabis reform in the country. This includes prioritizing efforts by Congressional lawmakers to “rationalize” America’s federal marijuana laws and reissuing Cole Memo protections, Blumenauer said.

Although last year’s mass cannabis pardons would theoretically benefit several thousand Americans saddled with cannabis possession on their records, advocates quickly pointed out that communities such as immigrants would be left out of the pardons. The 2022 pardons did not apply to people in federal prison, meaning people who are currently incarcerated in federal prisons for cannabis possessions have not been released. Furthermore, the pardon will not prevent Americans from being persecuted for cannabis possession in the future.

Cannabis Caucus cochair Representative Dave Joyce noted that while the federal government has indicated that it is keen on updating its approach to cannabis, he has seen little application of the administration’s rescheduling and expungement efforts over the past year. Consequently, Joyce said, he is “laser focused” on advancing bipartisan marijuana legislation in Congress to grant the state-level cannabis industry access to banking, incentivize cannabis expungement at the state level and prepare the federal government for marijuana legalization.

According to Joyce, such cannabis measures will force the Biden administration to take action and provide relief to the Americans still suffering from “unjust federal prohibition.”

Companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB) founded in Canada where marijuana is legal nationally hope that their neighbor, the United States, can also reform its cannabis laws so that citizens can benefit from this industry on a bigger scale through employment, entrepreneurship and so on.

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB), closed Friday's trading session at $0.5039, up 0.278607%, on 6,339,553 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 27.188M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.434/$1.62.

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

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is currently assessing the use of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA) within the context of crypto platforms. This move is geared towards enhancing safeguards for consumers in a market that has recently witnessed significant breaches on platforms such as FTX, and Axie Infinity. Under the EFTA legislation, electronic fund service providers must apprise users of their responsibilities regarding unauthorized transfers.

Rohit Chopra, director of the CFPB, announced the agency’s plans to delve further into the operational aspects of significant digital companies at a recent Brookings Institution meeting. The scrutiny extends to how these companies handle user data and their strategic approaches to the introduction or endorsement of private digital currencies. This initiative arises from a growing awareness of vulnerabilities in the cryptocurrency sphere, with unauthorized transfers becoming increasingly common.

To address these concerns, the CFPB is considering the release of more comprehensive guidelines that would clarify the boundaries and responsibilities outlined in the EFTA as they apply to digital currencies and the entities that manage them. Chopra also emphasized the urgent need to bring more stability to the cryptocurrency ecosystem. He referred to a 2021 report suggesting that the Financial Stability Oversight Council may have a role to play in this regard.

The council could potentially categorize specific cryptocurrency-related activities as critical components of settlement and payment processes, a move rooted in the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act. Such categorization would pave the way for stricter oversight, particularly in ensuring that instruments such as stablecoins fulfill their promise of stability.

Simultaneously, the CFPB is on the verge of introducing a well-drafted rule concerning personal financial data rights. This strategic step aims to accelerate the transition toward a transparent banking paradigm while emphasizing the importance of a robust framework for safeguarding user data.

The statement made by SDNY Judge Denise Cote that cryptocurrencies are best understood as falling under the category of “funds” presented a potentially revolutionary stance. If this reading were to become reality, it would represent a paradigm change, placing crypto platforms under the EFTA’s protective umbrella.

While this move unquestionably improves consumer protections, it also paves the way for crypto exchanges to face stricter regulatory obligations in the future.

As the CFPB intensifies its focus on the continuously evolving cryptocurrency landscape, industry participants, such as Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA), and consumers alike eagerly anticipate more nuanced and definitive policy guidance.

A Stockholm-based electric vehicle startup has begun manufacturing a mini-EV inspired by IKEA’s iconic flatpack design. Fellow Swedish company and EV startup Luvly took inspiration from IKEA’s flat-pack design and developed a small electric car that can be delivered in a flat-pack form. Dubbed the Luvly-O, the mini-electric car is reportedly so light and small that it can cut shipping-related carbon emissions by a significant margin.

The Luvly-O is the first-ever electric car to feature flat-pack delivery, and Luvly is hoping its super-lightweight frame and changeable batteries will make the mini-EV a much more sustainable transport option compared to other vehicles. Luvly cofounder and CEO Håkan Lutz says the mini electric car has an extremely light weight of just under 992 pounds (450 kilograms), less than 25% of the weight of the average modern car.

The mini-EV has a single-charge range of 62 miles (100 kilometers) and a 55-mile-per-hour top speed, making it suitable for daily commutes in most American urban areas where people travel an average of 37 miles per day. The mini-EV runs on two rechargeable and swappable 16-kilogram batteries that can be exchanged with a charged set to ensure the vehicle is consistently powered.

Similar small and lightweight electric cars have been a major hit in China, currently the world’s largest EV market, where companies such as Wuling and BYD have sold millions of electric cars. However, Lutz says the Luvly-O cannot be fully assembled by consumers, meaning you likely won’t be able to assemble your brand new Luvly-O in your garage.

Lutz says the vehicles will have to be assembled in a licensed vehicle plant before being shipped to consumers. He notes that the company is trying to adopt features such as nice design, sufficient quality and affordability, which have become synonymous with IKEA. Like the mini-electric cars making waves in China, the Luvly-O is a microcar, or “light urban vehicle” designed to navigate city streets with ease and efficiency.

Unfortunately, microcars are notorious for being unsafe because of their light frames, limited crumple zones and low weight, which increase the likelihood of their drivers suffering severe injuries. Lutz says lightweight vehicles such as the Luvly-O will have to prove to customers that they are safe before they can compete with regular vehicles.

Luvly looked to Formula One cars, which use light but strong materials, to develop a “sandwich structure” for the Luvly-O. The structure features an aluminum layer padded by lightweight plastic foam on both sides. The aluminum gives the frame strength and rigidity while the padding can absorb shock and protect the drive in case of an accident. Luvly still hasn’t conducted physical crash tests and is currently running computer simulations to determine the sandwich structure’s safety.

The EV industry is maturing and showing signs of segmentation, with entities such as Luvly looking to corner the microcar segment while the bigger companies, such as NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO), are battling to dominate the luxury EV market.

Scientists from the Paris Brain Institute have discovered that psychedelic drugs such as LSD and psilocybin (magic mushrooms) may be able to treat obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). French researchers are now investigating whether LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) may also be effective against OCD.

As barriers to psychedelic research have reduced in recent years, researchers across the world have begun studying the potential benefits and risks of psychedelic use in increased numbers. Initial research found that psychedelics may be effective mental-health treatments, and a growing body of research has consistently found that they can offer long-term relief against a myriad of mental-health conditions.

Scientific and public interest in psychedelics has exploded in recent years, thanks to a plethora of studies associating hallucinogens with major improvements in mental conditions such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a mental disorder that causes people to engage in repetitive behaviors called compulsions as well as experience recurring and uncontrollable thoughts (obsessions). In many cases, OCD symptoms can result in significant distress and make it difficult for affected individuals to take part in daily activities, especially if the condition is untreated.

Paris Brain Institute researchers have now discovered that psychedelics such as magic mushrooms and LSD have shown that they can reduce OCD symptoms in some individuals. The French scientists analyzed the experiences of OCD patients who used psychedelics in the past to determine if the drugs had any perceived effect on the patients.

Cognitive neuroscience post-doctoral fellow Anne Buot says the research team recruited 174 participants with OCD symptoms who had sporadic or regular contact with psychedelic drugs. According to the participants, psychedelic drug use resulted in fewer obsessive thoughts, a diminished need to engage in rituals, reduced avoidance behavior and anxiety, and more acceptance of their condition. According to the report, 30% of the patients said the positive effects lasted for more than three months, indicating that psychedelics could be a relatively effective OCD treatment for some people.

Current OCD treatment protocols involve cognitive-behavioral therapies as well as specific antidepressants that can alter brain chemical levels to alleviate symptoms. However, around 30% to 40% of OCD patients don’t respond to cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBT), and for those who do, it can often take weeks for the treatment to kick in.

With a flurry of studies finding that psychedelics can be effective against various mental-health disorders with few side effects, it was only natural that researchers would start investigating if the substances can also treat OCD, a condition said to affect 1 in 100 children and 1 in 40 adults in the United States.

However, the research team acknowledged their study’s limitations and asked that their findings be interpreted with caution. Buot notes that future research efforts will require contemporary approaches to fully understand how psychedelic experiences trigger the therapeutic benefits of hallucinogens.

It looks like the scientific community has only scratched the surface of the medicinal benefits of psychedelic compounds, and startups such as atai Life Sciences N.V. (NASDAQ: ATAI) could unearth even more medical applications for the hallucinogenic substances they are focusing on.

atai Life Sciences N.V. (ATAI), closed Friday's trading session at $1.28, up 2.4%, on 510,955 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 471,962 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.14/$3.65.

TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF)

QualityStocks, InvestorPlace and Cabot Wealth reported earlier on TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A federal court of appeals recently held oral arguments in a case addressing the constitutionality of the federal ban that prevents medical cannabis patients from buying or owning firearms. The proceedings unfolded before a three-judge panel of the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, where lawyers representing the Justice Department and Florida’s medical marijuana patients presented their respective arguments. The case has been extensively discussed through numerous briefings spanning over a year.

The plaintiffs’ attorney, Will Hall, outlined two key reasons supporting the federal ban’s unconstitutionality. Firstly, Hall argued that regardless of whether marijuana usage is lawful, committing a crime does not automatically deprive people of their Second Amendment rights. Secondly, he asserted that the Supreme Court has established new standards for evaluating gun limitations, declaring them illegal unless they are consistent with the historical background of the Second Amendment, which was passed in 1791. Hall said that prohibiting people who use medical cannabis is inconsistent with this historical setting.

While the Justice Department’s counsel conceded that illegal drugs were not widely used when the law was set, he argued that early laws restricting gun rights because of conditions such as mental health and intoxication serve as historical precedents consistent with the goal of the federal gun ban for regular cannabis users.

The discussion also delved into the definition of a law-abiding person whose Second Amendment rights should be safeguarded. One of the judges observed that it would seem incongruous to categorize state-registered medicinal cannabis patients as not adhering to the law in light of the federal rider, which has been extended yearly since 2014 and bans DOJ involvement in state medical-marijuana programs.

Both parties and judges acknowledged that the forthcoming Supreme Court case, U.S. vs. Rahima, which addresses the disarming of individuals with domestic violence injunctions, could influence the ruling in this case by clarifying whether Second Amendment rights can be systematically denied to nonlaw-abiding individuals for whatever reason.

The hearing also referenced a ruling by the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Daniels vs. the U.S., which declared the ban on marijuana users possessing firearms unconstitutional, even for recreational cannabis users. The DOJ expressed disagreement with this ruling, reiterating its reservations about the foundation of the decision.

The plaintiffs in the current case are seeking a narrow declaration, distinct from Daniels, specifically addressing state medical marijuana patients who are law compliant.

Several district court rulings have also questioned the constitutionality of the firearms ban for marijuana users, including cases in Oklahoma and Texas. Additionally, the ATF has voiced concerns regarding state laws allowing medical marijuana patients to obtain concealed carry gun licenses, citing potential risks and conflicts with federal firearm licensing policies.

Major marijuana companies such as TerrAscend Corp. (TSX: TSND) (OTCQX: TSNDF) are likely to follow this court case keenly since it would address one of the big concerns that many people have about using state-legal marijuana products, which are regarded illegal by the federal government.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Arizona Metals Corp. (TSX: AMC) (OTCQX: AZMCF).

Top industry executives in the copper industry say the market should prepare for a long-term supply squeeze of the red metal. Even though copper prices have softened in recent weeks and the market is expected to see a surplus in 2024, top executives predict supply shortfalls thanks to the limited number of copper mines that are under development. Copper producers have been warning about a reduction in ore quality and quantity for several months now, stating that the world currently doesn't have enough mines under development to meet the accelerating demand for copper. On top of its applications in industrial machinery, construction, and electrical equipment, copper also serves as a critical component in renewable energy infrastructure such as thermal, hydro, wind and solar energy. Consequently, the red metal is poised to see an almost exponential increase in demand over the next few decades as the United States, the European Union and the rest of the world transition from fossil fuels to clean energy as part of global efforts to mitigate climate change. Exploration companies such as Arizona Metals Corp. (TSX: AMC) (OTCQX: AZMCF) could find themselves at the forefront of bringing new copper production facilities online at a time when production is woefully inadequate to meet the expected surge in demand as energy systems transition away from fossil fuels.

Arizona Metals Corp. (TSX: AMC) (OTCQX: AZMCF) is a mineral exploration company engaged in advancing precious and base metal deposits in the state of Arizona. Its flagship copper-gold-zinc-silver asset is the Kay Mine Project, located in Yavapai County. The company also owns Sugarloaf Peak gold project in La Paz County.

The company in October 2022 received permit approval from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for two new drill pads, located approximately 1,200 meters west of the Kay Mine Deposit. These new pads will allow for testing of the company’s Western Target, while also allowing for drilling of additional coincident anomalies located between the Central and Western Targets. Construction of the drill road for the Central Target (located 500 meters west of the Kay Mine Deposit) is currently underway, with drilling expected to begin in November 2022. Road construction for the Western Target will begin upon confirmation of BLM acceptance of the company’s posted bond, with drilling expected to commence in Q1 2023.

The company is fully funded, with $60 million in cash as of June 30, 2022, to complete the remaining 18,000 meters planned for the Phase 2 program at Kay, as well as an additional 76,000 meters in the Phase 3 program (budgeted at $27 million), which will be used to test the numerous parallel targets heading west of the Kay Deposit, as well as the northern and southern extensions of the Kay Deposit.

Arizona Metals Corp. is based in Toronto, Canada.


Arizona Metals Corp. owns 100% of the Kay Mine property in Yavapai County, which is located on a combination of patented and BLM claims totaling 1,300 acres that are not subject to any royalties. An historic estimate by Exxon Minerals in 1982 reported a “proven and probable reserve of 6.4 million short tons at a grade of 2.2% copper, 2.8 grams per ton gold, 3.03% zinc, and 55 grams per ton silver.” The historic estimate has not been verified as a current mineral resource. None of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historic estimate were reported by Exxon, and no resource categories were used. Significant data compilation, re-drilling and data verification may be required by a “qualified person” (as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects) before the historic estimate can be verified and upgraded to be a current mineral resource. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify it as a current mineral resource, and Arizona Metals is not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource.

The company also owns 100% of the Sugarloaf Peak Property in La Paz County, which is located on 4,400 acres of BLM claims. Sugarloaf is a heap-leach, open-pit target and has a historic estimate of “100 million tons containing 1.5 million ounces (of) gold” at a grade of 0.5 grams per ton. The historic estimate at the Sugarloaf Peak Property was reported by Westworld Resources in 1983. The historic estimate has not been verified as a current mineral resource. None of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historic estimate were reported, and no resource categories were used. Significant data compilation, re-drilling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historic estimate can be verified and upgraded to a current mineral resource. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify it as a current mineral resource, and Arizona Metals is not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource.

The World Gold Council, an industry association representing gold producers with hundreds of mining operations in nearly 50 countries around the world, reports that global demand for gold during the first six months of 2022 was 2,189 tons, a 12% increase in demand over the same period in 2021. Demand came primarily from gold bar and coin investors, jewelry consumers, central bank purchases to bolster currency reserves and technology manufacturing.

The average price per ounce for the period was $1,871, marking a 1% year-over-year increase. The council reported gold mine production for the period was up 3% over 2021 at 1,764 tons. For the remainder of 2022 and into 2023, the council projects flat gold demand with possible slight increases in gold mine production. The council notes that unpredictable geopolitical factors, the Ukraine war for example, and likelihood of global economic slowdown could have significant near-term impact on gold demand and prices.

Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) .

Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) ("Longeveron" or "Company"), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing cellular therapies for life-threatening and chronic aging-related conditions such as hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), Alzheimer's disease and Aging-related Frailty, today announced the closing of its previously announced registered direct offering, priced at-the-market under Nasdaq rules, for the purchase and sale of 2,424,243 shares of its Class A common stock ("common stock") or common stock equivalents in lieu thereof, at a purchase price of $1.65 per share, or per common stock equivalent in lieu thereof. In addition, in a concurrent private placement, Longeveron issued unregistered Series A warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 2,424,243 shares of its common stock and unregistered Series B warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 2,424,243 shares of its common stock. The warrants have an exercise price of $1.65 per share and are exercisable upon the effective date of stockholder approval of the issuance of the shares underlying the warrants. The Series A Warrants and Series B Warrants have terms of five and one-half years and eighteen months from the date of issuance, respectively.

Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing regenerative medicines to address unmet medical needs for specific aging-related and life-threatening conditions. The Company’s research and therapies are aimed at improving the outcome of infants born with a life-threatening heart condition, as well as improving the healthspan for the aging population – the number of years a person is expected to live in relatively good health, free of chronic disease and disabilities of aging, with function and ability to perform activities of daily living.

Longeveron is involved in clinical trials in the following indications: Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), Alzheimer’s disease, and Aging-related Frailty.

The Company’s philosophy revolves around the idea that regenerative medicine may hold the potential to improve certain rare medical conditions and contribute to healthy aging. While there has been a remarkable rise in life expectancy over the last century due to medical and public health advancements, this increase in longevity has not been paralleled by the number of years a person is expected to live in relatively good health, free of chronic disease and disabilities of aging.

Longeveron’s lead investigational product is Lomecel-B™, an allogeneic Medicinal Signaling Cell therapy product isolated from the bone marrow of young, healthy adult donors. As humans age, they experience a decrease in immune system function, a decline in blood vessel functioning, chronic inflammation, and other issues. Clinical data has suggested that Lomecel-B™ may address these conditions through multiple mechanisms of action (MOA) that simultaneously target key aging-related processes.

The Company is headquartered in Miami, Florida.


Lomecel-B™ is being evaluated in multiple clinical trials for aging-related chronic diseases and other life-threatening conditions under U.S. FDA-approved Investigational New Drug applications. Lomecel-B™ has multiple potential mechanisms of action encompassing pro-vascular, pro-regenerative, anti-inflammatory, and tissue repair and healing effects with broad potential applications across a spectrum of disease areas.

The drug is made from special living cells called Medicinal Signaling Cells (MSCs) that are isolated from fresh bone marrow tissue that has been donated by adult donors aged 18 to 45. Once the MSCs have been isolated from the fresh bone marrow through a careful selection process, the cells are culture-expanded (allowed to replicate under controlled laboratory conditions) into the billions using specialized techniques and processes. After a specific number of expansion cycles, called “passages,” the cells are harvested, separated into specific doses (e.g., 50 million cells), and cryopreserved until future use.

These cells have been shown to have characteristics that allow them to be transplanted from a donor to host without triggering a harmful immune response in the recipient, and they can be administered on an outpatient basis in as little as 40 minutes after thawing. Because of these characteristics, Lomecel-B™ is considered an “off-the-shelf” product.

In some trials, such as for Alzheimer’s disease and Aging-related Frailty, Lomecel-B™ is administered via peripheral intravenous infusion, while, in the Company’s HLHS trial, Lomecel-B™ is administered via direct injection into the heart tissue.

Market Opportunity

Longeveron estimates the potential market size for Lomecel-B™ in the treatment of HLHS to be up to $1 billion annually, globally.

U.S. patients suffering from Aging-related Frailty are estimated using U.S. Census Bureau statistics to be approximately 8.1 million. That population potentially represents a market for Lomecel-B™ of between $4 billion and $8 billion globally per year, according to Company estimates.

Additionally, the Alzheimer’s Association puts the number of Americans with that disease at 5.1 million, highlighting another potentially addressable market for Lomecel-B™, that’s worth $5 billion to $10 billion annually.

Canada Nickel Company Inc. (TSX.V: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Canada Nickel Company Inc. (TSX.V: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF).

Canada Nickel (TSX.V: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF), a company that is advancing the next generation of nickel-sulphide projects, was in the spotlight during a recent interview released by The Watchlist by The Market Herald. During the interview, The Watchlist's Ryan Dhillon talked with Mark Selby, Canada Nickel's president and CEO. The two discussed the company's recent positive bankable feasibility study for its Crawford Nickel Sulphide Project. The report confirmed significantly improved economics from Canada Nickel's Preliminary Economic Analysis, with an after-tax NPV(8%) of $2.5 billion and IRR of 17.1%. Interviews released from The Watchlist by The Market Herald are designed to offer investors a quick snapshot of what they need to know about a company's important news through exclusive insights from company executives.

"This bankable feasibility study is a significant milestone for Crawford and a major step forward in demonstrating the value of our Timmins Nickel District and its potential to anchor a Zero Carbon Industrial Cluster in the Timmins-Cochrane region," said Canada Nickel CEO Mark Selby about the report. "Crawford is poised to be a leader in the energy transition through the large-scale production of critical minerals, including nickel and cobalt, and is expected to become the sole North American producer of chromium2, while also supporting Canada's climate objectives through industrial-scale carbon capture and storage."

Canada Nickel Company Inc. (TSX.V: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF) is advancing the next generation of nickel-cobalt sulfide projects to deliver the metals needed to power the electric vehicle (EV) revolution and feed the high growth stainless steel market. The company is one of only a few new sources of potential supply outside Indonesia and China.

Canada Nickel possesses industry leading nickel expertise and is focused on low risk, well established mining jurisdictions. The company has launched wholly owned subsidiary NetZero Metals Inc. to develop zero-carbon production of nickel, cobalt and iron and has applied in multiple jurisdictions to trademark the terms NetZero Nickel, NetZero Cobalt and NetZero Iron. Canada Nickel is also pursuing development of processes to allow net zero carbon production of these elements.

Canada Nickel is currently anchored by its 100% owned flagship Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulfide Project with large-scale potential located in the heart of Ontario’s prolific Timmins-Cochrane mining camp, adjacent to major infrastructure.

The company believes the EV industry and many other consumer sectors have an urgent need for zero-carbon metal this decade, not in 20-25 years as contemplated by some resource companies. Canada Nickel also believes that nickel supplies from Indonesia and other Pacific island nations, typically controlled by Chinese-owned companies, are not the answer for batteries needed by GM, Ford and the European automakers working to develop and manufacture EV models.

The company is headquartered in Toronto.

Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulfide Project

The Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulfide Project is the largest sulfide discovery since the early 1970s and contains the fifth-largest nickel sulfide resource in the world, based on Measured & Indicated resources, according to the latest update. The Crawford project is expected to be one of the largest base metal mines in Canada based on results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment. Early projections by Canada Nickel estimate that the project has the potential to produce 50,000 tons of nickel per year. The company is now in the final stages of completing the project’s feasibility study.

The project is projected to produce 2.8 tons of CO2 per ton of nickel equivalent production, which is 89% lower than the industry average of 34 tons of CO2 per ton of nickel equivalent production.

The company is taking significant steps toward developing the Crawford project as a net zero carbon producer. In addition to harnessing the natural ability of the project’s geology to act as a carbon sink through spontaneous reaction of the host rock once exposed to atmospheric conditions called mineral carbonation, Canada Nickel has discovered a new way to enhance carbon capture, termed In Process Tailings (IPT) Carbonation. This act of conditioning the tailings with a concentrated stream of carbon dioxide before deposition has been demonstrated at lab scale to achieve carbon capture at a rate 8-12 times faster than naturally occurring sequestration, achieving more than 60% of the capture that had previously taken six days.

These latest results move the company further toward production of Net Zero Nickel™ and generation of 21 tonnes of CO2 credits per tonne of nickel, which would produce an estimated average of 710,000 tonnes of CO2 credits annually and 18 million total tonnes of CO2 credits over the expected life of mine. IPT Carbonation does not require complex new technologies and major process modifications and could encourage the development of a net zero carbon industrial cluster centered around the Crawford project.

Canada Nickel in January 2023 announced that its latest test work results support the incorporation of carbon capture and storage into the Crawford project. The company believes that utilization of existing process streams should allow IPT to be efficiently engineered and incorporated into the project’s flowsheet, with an integrated feasibility study for the project expected in the second quarter of 2023.

In December 2022, Canada Nickel announced its engagement on Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (“Deutsche Bank”) and Scotiabank – two of the world’s leading investment banks with a broad base of mining and industrial expertise – as financial advisors for the equity component of the project financing for the Crawford project. In the same release, the company announced the completion of another significant permitting milestone by filing the detailed project description with the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada. Canada Nickel targets receipt of permits by mid-2025, with construction to immediately follow.

Additional Projects

The Reid Nickel Property is located just 16 kilometers southwest of Crawford, or 37 kilometers northwest of Timmins, and contains an ultramafic body with a target geophysical footprint of 3.9 square kilometers. Preliminary assay results from Canada Nickel’s summer/fall drilling program confirm the presence of mineralized dunite, as well as currently undefined higher-grade sections. Partial assay results confirm expected nickel grades. Nickel mineralization in serpentinized dunite was found in all 16 holes drilled to date.

The Sothman Nickel Property is located 70 kilometers south of Timmins. Five drill holes on the eastern half of the target anomaly confirmed the continuation of ultramafic lithologies, primarily peridotite, with moderate to strong serpentinization and variable amounts of mineralization throughout.

The company in December 2022 announced positive drilling results from its ongoing regional exploration campaign at its Reid and Sothman properties. These latest results continue to reinforce the success of Canada Nickel’s geophysical targeting approach and increase the probability of success at the company’s other 20-plus properties within its 42 square kilometers of geophysical targets.

Building on this momentum, Canada Nickel in December 2022 announced its entry into a deal to acquire a 100% interest in the past producing Texmont property situated between the company’s properties south of Timmins. As noted in the news release, the acquisition of the Texmont property provides near-term smaller scale production potential and is highly complementary to the company’s large-scale Crawford and regional nickel sulphide projects.

Market Opportunity

Global demand leaves the market fundamentally short of nickel in the medium- and long-term. Global primary nickel demand will likely reach 3 million tons in 2022, up from 2.4 million tons in 2020, according to the International Nickel Study Group (INSG).

The INSG says primary nickel production is forecast to hit 3.1 million tons in 2022. Indonesia, the world’s largest nickel miner, halted exports of unprocessed nickel ore in January 2020, due to a government-imposed ban. Indonesia has floated the concept of a nickel cartel whose member nations would exert influence over world nickel supply and prices, similar to OPEC’s pricing power over oil.

Benchmark Minerals, a leading EV supply chain research firm, projects that, by 2035, world demand for nickel will double from current levels to 6 million tons annually. That growing demand represents a need for new nickel production equivalent to 70 mines the size of Canada Nickel’s Crawford Project.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW).

Anyone who has browsed through online or physical stores has noticed that retailers have a propensity for slapping price tags that end with .99 on their products. This method has been a common practice in commerce for decades, and according to consumer behavior experts, ending product prices with .99 helps to sell more goods as consumers tend to resonate with the first digit of a price. Consequently, consumers are more likely to purchase a product worth $9.99 over a $10.00 product even though both products essentially cost the same. With e-commerce constantly growing and evolving as millions of retailers fight to attract the most consumer attention, psychological tricks such as the $.99 pricing strategy are becoming crucial to maximizing revenue and outperforming fellow e-commerce retailers. E-commerce platforms such as NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW) with a presence in countries around the world probably leverage AI systems to price products optimally for maximum appeal to customers, especially customers looking to buy healthcare products.

NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW), a next generation e-commerce platform, was created with vision and purpose to capitalize on high growth sectors and global markets. The company collaborates with businesses – large and small – to simplify and accelerate online commerce and uniquely enables customers and partners to optimize their e-commerce reach, presence and revenue. NextPlat recently launched a new e-commerce development program to provide American businesses with easy access to the massive Chinese consumer market.

Current Initiatives

NextPlat provides cutting edge technology in an advanced e-commerce ecosystem. The company is actively expanding its global network of online storefronts serving thousands of consumers, enterprises and governments. The company also has developed a next generation platform built for Web3 that enables the creation and sale of digital assets, as well as optimizing e-commerce transactions and business building activities. The company’s current initiatives include:

  • E-Commerce Development Program – In April 2023, NextPlat announced it had entered into a merchant sourcing agreement with Singapore E-Commerce Private Limited (“Alibaba”) and its Tmall Global e-commerce platform whereby the two companies will collaborate to increase the sale of products produced and sold by American companies to the multi-trillion-dollar Chinese consumer market. Alibaba’s Tmall Global e-commerce platform will provide NextPlat customers a turn-key solution through which products can be sold to the Chinese consumer market. The launch of the Florida E-Commerce Development Program is the first in a series of new NextPlat programs designed to assist U.S. businesses in expanding their online sales capabilities to reach new international customers in the Chinese market. NextPlat intends to rapidly expand this unique e-commerce development opportunity to businesses throughout the United States and all of North America, as well as Central and South America. The new development program features NextPlat’s turnkey global e-commerce solution for customers and leverages NextPlat’s relationships with key partners, including Tmall Global, China’s largest cross-border B2C online marketplace.
  • Progressive Care Inc. – In August 2022, NextPlat completed a strategic $7 million investment in Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD), a personalized health care services and technology company. In a news release announcing the investment, NextPlat CEO Charles M. Fernandez noted that the company is “committed to harnessing the power of digital technologies to capitalize on the ongoing digital transformation of Progressive Care and the entire health care industry.” NextPlat intends to accelerate Progressive Care’s digital health care transformation with the launch of a new e-commerce platform for health care products later this year.
  • NextPlat NFT Platform – Building on its existing e-commerce initiatives, NextPlat is working to bridge the gap between tangible and digital e-commerce marketplaces by incorporating burgeoning Web3 technologies. The company intends to launch a fully integrated NFT platform in the coming months that will enable brands to create, manage and authenticate digital assets while serving as a new source of revenue for NextPlat. Through this model, the company will receive a portion of the revenue generated from branded NFT drops, as well as subsequent secondary market transactions.
  • Global Telesat Communications and Orbital SatCom Corp. – Targeting both domestic and international markets, NextPlat’s subsidiaries leverage partnerships with major e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba, eBay and Walmart to serve a growing base that includes more than 50,000 corporate, governmental and individual customers. In total, the brands market more than 10,000 individual products, with a focus on satellite-based connectivity solutions. In addition to exploring accretive M&A opportunities, NextPlat aims to diversify its range of products and broaden its geographic footprint moving forward in an effort to better capitalize on the tremendous growth potential in the United States, Europe and Asia.

“Our goal for 2023 and beyond is to leverage our improved operational capabilities and enhanced leadership team as we expand our offerings in communications and connectivity into the high-growth health care market where we intend to launch an array of innovative new offerings,” Fernandez said in a March 2023 news release detailing the company’s record top-line performance. “Although there remain supply chain headwinds and the challenge of global inflation, we are confident that we have the right combination of market-tested expertise, technology and partnerships that will enable us to bring the power of e-commerce to more customers, brands and industries in the United States and abroad.”

Market Opportunity

The rapid growth of e-commerce over the last decade is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. According to data published by Forbes, roughly 20.8% of all retail purchases are expected to take place online in 2023, accounting for total sales of $6.31 trillion worldwide. It total, e-commerce sales are expected to grow by 10.4% YoY in 2023, accounting for a whopping 24% of all retail purchases by 2026.

For NextPlat, existing partnerships in the industry could be key to capitalizing on this growth. The Forbes report indicates that Amazon accounts for roughly 38.7% of e-commerce sales, while sites like Walmart, eBay and Alibaba round out the list of most visited e-commerce websites. Alibaba is especially interesting due to NextPlat’s recent strategic merchant sourcing agreement with Tmall Global. The Chinese market is “mammoth,” as a recent Alizila report noted. The country’s annual online retail sales of physical goods have nearly doubled in the last five years, reaching approximately 13.8 trillion yuan in 2022, which is nearly $2 trillion USD.

The health care portion of the e-commerce market is generating particularly bullish forecasts, bolstered by the continued adoption of the 340B Drug Pricing Program in the U.S., which requires most drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to covered entities at significantly reduced prices. Industry reports suggest that the global health care e-commerce market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 16.8% from 2022 to 2030, climbing to a value of more than $1.37 trillion by the end of the forecast period.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX).

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX, LEXXW), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has granted a new global, exclusive license to SulfoSyn Limited; the license is for the exclusive global use of all nonpharmaceutical applications of Lexaria's proprietary DehydraTECH-sulforaphane, including the right to authorize sublicenses. According to the announcement, Lexaria has already received an up-front cash payment, and the agreement outlines minimumongoing payments, royalties and manufacturing revenues. Nonpharmaceutical uses could include supplements, additives, foods, dietary ingredients and more. In addition to the license agreement, the two companies have a broader agreement that, for at least the next two years, Lexaria will conduct certain DehydraTECH-related manufacturing operations at its U.S. partner facility on behalf of SulfoSyn, which should also result in an increase in revenue to Lexaria. The announcement noted that the two companies started exploring the applicability of DehydraTECH upon sulforaphane late last year; results of that indicate that DehydraTECH confers certain superior qualities upon the sulforaphane molecule that are of commercial interest.

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.

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.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Knightscope, Inc. (NASDAQ: KSCP).

Knightscope (NASDAQ: KSCP), a leading developer of autonomous security robots ("ASRs") and blue light emergency communication systems, is continuing to add to its list of valued clients. The company has secured two more contracts for its K5 ASR, including a hotel in Athens, Georgia, and a Pre-K school in Vancouver, Washington.

According to the announcement, the hospitality market is recognizing the many advantages that Knightscope ASRs offer. The company has a growing list of hotels, resorts and convention centers that are committed to guest safety and realize the key role that security robots can play in the mission. "Guest experience is a hospitality business's main indicator of quality service, so it is imperative to provide a well-rounded encounter to entice new guests to give a hotel a try and encourage those customers to return again and again," stated the announcement. "Knightscope adds a branded and engaging element to that experience while keeping guests, employees and visitors safe."

Knightscope also noted that schools are the "bedrock" of the company's existence, pointing to its inception, which was a result of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. Consequently, education system contracts are particularly meaningful to the organization. "A Pre-K school in Vancouver, Washington, selected Knightscope to protect the future of America," the announcement continued. "The K5 ASR will patrol the perimeter of the school to ward off evildoers and act as a technological inspiration to these very impressionable children. It is an honor that Knightscope cannot put into words."

Knightscope, Inc. (NASDAQ: KSCP), founded in 2013 and based in Mountain View, California, is a leader in the development of autonomous security capabilities targeting to disrupt the $500 billion security industry. Knightscope’s technology uniquely combines self-driving technology, robotics, artificial intelligence and electric vehicles.

Knightscope designs and builds Autonomous Security Robots (ASRs) that provide 24/7/365 security to the places you live, work, visit and study. The company’s client list covers public institutions and commercial business operations, including multiple Fortune 1000 companies to date. These ASRs have been proven to enhance safety at hospitals, logistics facilities, manufacturing plants, schools and corporations. ASRs act as highly cost-effective complementary systems to traditional security and law enforcement officials, providing an additional advantage by continuing to offer uninterrupted patrolling capabilities across the country.

The company’s ASRs have assisted in the arrest of suspects involved in crimes ranging from armed robbery to hit-and-runs. Their machine-embedded thermal scanning capability even aided in preventing the breakout of a major fire. You can learn more about the crime fighting wins at

The company has achieved several milestones since its creation in 2013, including:

  • Establishing itself in a 15,000-square-foot facility located in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, where Knightscope designs, engineers and builds its technology (Made in the USA)
  • Operating for more than 1 million hours in the field and securing contracts across five time zones, from Hawaii to Rhode Island
  • Raising over $100 million since inception to build its technology from scratch and generating over $13 million in lifetime revenue, validating both the market opportunity and the technology

Growth Capital & Proposed Nasdaq Listing

With backing from more than 28,000 investors and four major corporations and over $100 million raised since inception, Knightscope is poised to be an industry leader in the future of public safety and security.

On December 1, 2021, Knightscope announced the commencement of an offering of up to $40 million of its Class A common stock, with shares to be listed immediately following closing on the Nasdaq Global Market under the ticker symbol ‘KSCP’. The offering is for up to 4 million shares priced at $10 per share. Learn more at

Company Mission – Reimagining Public Safety

Knightscope’s long-term vision has an eye on the greater good. The company’s mission is to make the United States of America the safest nation in the world while supporting the 2+ million law enforcement and security professionals across the country.

Crime has an estimated negative economic impact in excess of $2 trillion annually. As crime is reduced, positive impacts will likely be realized across several aspects of society, including housing, financial markets, insurance, municipal budgets, local business and safety in general.

Knightscope CEO William Santana Li was interviewed by Kevin O’Leary, more commonly known as Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful. When asked to explain how the benefits provided by the ASRs outrank a human doing the same job, Li said, “First, just the simple presence of a physical deterrent causes criminal behavior to change. Second, the machines are self-driving cars that patrol all around and recharge themselves. They also generate 90 terabytes of data per year. No human would ever be able to process that. The robots are intended to be eyes and ears for the humans, not a one-to-one replacement.”

The Knightscope solution to reduce crime combines the physical presence of ASRs, sometimes referred to as proprietary Autonomous Data Machines, with real-time onsite data collection and analysis. The ASRs are fitted with eye-level 360° cameras, thermal scanning, public address announcements and various other features that work in tandem with humans to provide law enforcement officers and security guards unprecedented situational awareness.

Those 90 terabytes of data are then formatted in a useable way, so law enforcement can leverage that information and execute their responsibilities more effectively.

Public Safety Innovation

The company’s recurring revenue business model is set up to mimic the recurring societal problem of crime, and it takes into consideration the fact that innovation in the security and public safety industry has been stagnant for decades. Because the traditional practices of the sector have remained unchanged for years, automation has potential to drive substantial cost savings – and significant improvement in capabilities.

Human security guards are one of both the largest expenses and the largest liabilities for companies. Knightscope’s robots are offered at an effective price of $3 to $9 per hour, compared with approximately $85 for an armed off-duty law enforcement officer and $15 to $35 for an unarmed security guard.

This innovation has the potential to drive considerable cost savings. Based on these estimates, manufacturing costs can be recovered as soon as the first year of operation.

Product Offerings

The company has nine patents and a framework of unique intellectual property. Knightscope currently offers a K1 stationary machine, a K3 indoor machine and a K5 outdoor machine. A K7 multi-terrain four-wheel version is in development.

The ASRs autonomously patrol client sites without the need for remote control, providing a visible, force multiplying, physical security presence to help protect assets, monitor changes in the area and deter crime. The data is accessible through the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC), an intuitive, browser-based interface that enables security professionals to review events generated by the ASRs providing effectively ‘mobile smart eyes and ears’. Learn more at

The ASRs and the related technologies were developed ground up by the company and are Made in the USA.

The Robot Roadshow

Knightscope has created the ultimate hybrid physical and virtual event, bringing its Autonomous Security Robot technologies to cities across the country for interactive and in-person demonstrations.

Each roadshow landing is hosted virtually by a Knightscope expert, and visitors can interact directly with each of the company’s ASRs and see the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC) user interface in action. Learn more at

This aim is critical, as, if left unchecked, a breeding pair of rats and their descendants can produce up to 15,000 pups after just one year.

The company strives for clean cities, efficient businesses and happy households – with a product that was scientifically designed to be effective without killing rats. SenesTech is committed to the sustainable, humane treatment of animals, improving the quality of all human life and enhancing environmental stewardship through the global application of its effective solution in fertility control technology.

SenesTech is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona.


SenesTech’s first product, ContraPest®, applies revolutionary technology to a global challenge that has persisted since the Middle Ages – the proliferation of rats in urban and agricultural settings. ContraPest® targets the reproductive capabilities of Norway and roof rats. As a highly palatable liquid, the formulation promotes sustained consumption, helping to reduce fertility in both male and female rats, bringing populations down and keeping them down.

The company’s flagship offering can be used as part of integrated pest management (IPM) programs – fitting seamlessly into all IPM programs – to help reduce reproduction and magnify the success of these protocols, or as a standalone solution for customers who want to reduce or eliminate the use of lethal rodent control methods.

In multiple, independent field deployments, ContraPest was shown to reduce rat activity over 90% when added to an existing IPM program.

ContraPest® is registered federally as a General Use Product.

Delivery Systems and New Products

In July 2023, SenesTech began to distribute a new delivery system for ContraPest®, the Isolate Bait System™. This new delivery system brings to market a simple design that enables more efficient deployment, incorporates an enhanced formulation of ContraPest® that is expected to provide improved performance of the fertility control bait in the field and is paired with a new bait station that is more space-efficient and economical.

The other delivery systems available for ContraPest include the Ultimate Bait System™, a tank and tray in a larger format for use with more severe infestations, and the Elevate Bait System™, a unique delivery system that targets above ground infestations, as with roof rats.

SenesTech, as of August 2023, is also in the final stages of releasing a soft bait formulation, which provides the unique attributes of proven fertility control in an industry-familiar format demanded by big box retailers, key e-commerce channels and leading industry pest management professionals.

Market Opportunity

According to SenesTech’s figures, rats cause over $27 billion in damage to public and private infrastructure annually in the United States. Rats also destroy 20% of the global stored food supply every year by consuming or contaminating it.

Rats are known to spread at least 35 diseases, globally posing a dangerous risk to public health and safety. Not only does this age-old problem persist despite extensive campaigns to eradicate it, but multiple sources have reported that post-COVID rat populations have boomed.

Poison-based control methods sicken rats, and they typically die slowly. An animal that eats a poisoned rat may also sicken or die. The global rodenticide market is projected to be worth $1.7 billion by 2026.

In one case study, results reported by the customer showed a $5,000 investment in ContraPest® saved more than $500,000 annually in reduced labor, loss and damage.

Management Team

Joel Fruendt is SenesTech’s President and CEO. He has 15 years of executive leadership in the vector and pest control industries as Vice President and General Manager of Clarke Environmental Inc., a leading vector and pest control products and services company.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight GEMXX Corp. (OTC: GEMZ) .

NetworkNewsAudio – GEMXX Corp. (OTC: GEMZ) announces the availability of a broadcast titled, "Safety, Stability and Upside in Uncertain Times."

To hear the AudioPressRelease, please visit: The NetworkNewsAudio News Podcast

To view the full editorial, please visit:

"Gold has proved, over hundreds and even thousands of years, to be a reliable store of value," stated a recent " U.S. News & World Report " article, which further observed that "whatever events happen, gold has a robust value that stays relatively consistent over time in terms of its purchasing power." The article notes that gold can compete against other relatively safe investments such as the U.S. dollar and treasuries, but "because the Fed's efforts to combat inflation appear to be working, gold looks increasingly attractive compared to assets like [treasuries]."

With that backdrop, the eye-popping progress made by GEMXX Corp. (OTC: GEMZ) in the past several months may prove to be particularly promising. The company reported a whopping 170% increase in revenues year over year in 2022, has no long-term debt, and is on a tear adding owned assets to the balance sheet.

GEMXX Corp. (OTC: GEMZ) is a mine-to-market enterprise specializing in gold, gemstone, and jewelry production. With ownership of mining resources, production facilities, and operational assets, the company maintains control over every aspect of its production process, from gold mining and gemstone extraction to jewelry manufacturing and global distribution.

As a prominent player in the industry, GEMXX stands out as a leading producer of high-quality finished Ammolite jewelry. Notably, it holds the distinction of being the sole public company engaged in Ammolite mining worldwide. In addition to its Ammolite operations, the company is actively involved in gold mining and prides itself on its ability to design and manufacture exquisite jewelry pieces and exceptionally rare, natural fossil decor items for clientele around the globe.

One of GEMXX’s key advantages lies in mining its own gold reserves to be utilized in its jewelry production. This strategic approach provides the company with a cost-saving edge over other producers in the market.

Ammolite is similar to black opal and is a biogenic gem like amber and pearl. It is derived from the fossilized shells of ammonites, a group of extinct marine nautiluses.

GEMXX’s world class gemstone cutters and jewelry designers are continuously leading the Ammolite industry. Its team believes in the company’s philosophy, vision and goals, and works every day to continue to drive the Ammolite industry to the forefront of the gem world.

The company has offices in Las Vegas and Hong Kong.

Projects and Operations

GEMXX has formulated an ambitious growth plan that, while challenging, is deemed attainable. The company’s strategy revolves around bolstering its market share through several key initiatives. Firstly, GEMXX aims to strengthen its position in current markets by nurturing and expanding existing relationships with customers and partners.

Secondly, the company plans to venture into untapped markets strategically. By identifying and targeting new areas, GEMXX seeks to establish a presence in regions that present promising opportunities for growth.

Additionally, GEMXX envisions growth through acquisitions. By considering and integrating key services, distribution networks and retail outlets into its fold, the company aims to consolidate its market position and capitalize on synergies for enhanced success.

To cater to the rising demand for its products, GEMXX has placed a primary focus on increasing gemstone production. The company’s southern properties, situated in Alberta, Canada, hold valuable deposits of rough Ammolite gemstone. By tapping into these resources, GEMXX is poised to meet the demand for its exquisite gemstone products and further fuel its expansion plans.


GEMXX possesses significant mineral assets in the form of a Mineral Work Permit covering an 800-acre area and two Ammonite Shell Mineral agreements encompassing 217 acres within the same region. The company’s management effectively operated mines in close proximity to these properties. Moreover, core sampling, along with fossil outcroppings on the riverbanks, confirms a substantial Ammolite resource present in these designated areas.

Both the Mineral Work Permit and the Ammonite Shell Mineral agreements grant GEMXX unrestricted access to all Ammolite resources within their respective demarcations. Notably, the company is not obligated to pay any royalties to third parties, thereby enabling GEMXX to fully capitalize on the potential of these valuable resources.

Furthermore, there are no stringent regulatory conditions that GEMXX must fulfill to gain or retain access to the Ammolite deposits. This freedom of access allows the company to proceed with its mining and production operations unimpeded, providing an advantageous position for future growth and success.

In March 2023, GEMXX made a significant announcement, revealing its acquisition of a 50% ownership stake in Crazy Horse Mining Inc., a Canadian gold mining company with assets situated in the province of British Columbia. As part of this deal, Crazy Horse’s assets, which encompass a 100% interest in two gold projects, called Snow Creek and Rosella Creek, spread across a substantial area exceeding 700 acres, now become part of GEMXX’s portfolio.

Under the terms of this strategic partnership, GEMXX and Crazy Horse will jointly share the expenses related to mining operations on these projects. Additionally, the two companies will share the gold produced from these ventures, leading to a collaborative and mutually beneficial arrangement.

Initial tests conducted on the property, combined with gold already recovered this season, confirm all expectations for the claims and substantiate the company’s estimated extraction target of over 100,000 ounces of easily recoverable gold. To validate and provide a more comprehensive assessment of this estimate, an S-K 1300-compliant Resource Report is scheduled to be conducted during the summer of 2023.

By acquiring this stake in Crazy Horse Mining Inc., GEMXX has positioned itself for further growth in the gold mining sector and is poised to capitalize on cost of goods savings in its jewelry business.

Market Opportunity

Leading independent market research companies such as Data Monitor and GIA estimate the worldwide market for luxury or premium lifestyle products, which include gems and jewelry, at over $90 billion annually and growing. Ammolite sales around the world have seen unprecedented growth over the past 20 years. Worldwide retail sales are now estimated to be over $100 million.

Ammolite jewelry and fossils are featured aboard cruise ships and can be found in specialty shops in almost every cruise port in North America. Asian markets have grown since feng shui master Edward Li called Ammolite the most influential stone of the new millennium, referring to it as the “Seven Color Prosperity Stone.” Home shopping channels in Japan, Australia, France, Germany, the UK, Canada and the U.S. have all featured Ammolite jewelry.

Ammolite and ammonites can also be found on many ecommerce sales platforms, including Amazon, eBay and Etsy. Ammolite is sold around the world in tourist and traditional jewelry markets. The company has established customers in home shopping channels, cruise tourism, jewelry retailers, Asian feng shui markets, Asian retail markets and ecommerce platforms.

Its team members have extensive backgrounds in every facet of the Ammolite business, allowing the company to excel in product development, maintain rigorous quality control measures, and maximize profitability. The breadth and depth of the GEMXX team’s experience enable the company to navigate the industry with precision, ensuring that GEMXX remains at the forefront of the Ammolite market. GEMXX leverages its collective wisdom to drive innovation, deliver exceptional products, and optimize business strategies to achieve long-term success.

Jay Maull is Founder, CEO and Chairman of GEMXX. With a career spanning more than three decades, he has been deeply involved in the Ammolite industry, from mining and production to marketing.

Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI).

Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI) is a publicly-traded company strategically positioned to capitalize on America’s unstoppable trend toward decentralized energy generation.

The energy grid in the U.S. is insufficient for the booming clean energy trend, and current infrastructure is limiting green energy distribution. Constructing the needed infrastructure to address this demand imbalance will cost billions and be far too slow, positioning decentralized systems, like those on offer from Correlate, in a key position for heightened demand.

Correlate has identified several key economic drivers powering the decentralized energy trend, including:

  1. Real Cost Savings – Customer pays zero money down and gets an instant electrical price discount to current rates.
  2. Massive Project Investment Funding – The International Energy Agency estimates that over one billion dollars per day will be invested in solar energy in 2023.
  3. Consistent Long-Term Incentives – The Inflation Reduction Act is a game-changer, supercharging renewables with $1.2 trillion in tax credits for 10 years of market support.
  4. Robust Customer Demand – Wood Mackenzie expects the U.S. solar industry to nearly triple in size over the next five years.

Correlate’s team of multi-decade experts who have worked with renowned global brands are positioning the company to make the most of this opportunity while consolidating a fragmented industry. Collectively, the team has developed, financed and deployed over $2 billion in clean energy projects to date.

Three-Pronged Strategy

Correlate is leveraging a three-pronged strategy aimed at driving shareholder value:

  1. Sell – Correlate seeks to finance, develop and profitably sell localized clean energy solutions and microgrids to industrial, commercial and residential customers.
  2. Retain – Correlate plans to retain ownership of some of these energy systems and thereby realize ongoing, reliable cash flow.
  3. Acquire – Correlate seeks to acquire proven renewable energy companies in order to exponentially grow earnings per share for investors.

This strategy is enhanced by current investment trends. Clean energy earnings are being sought after by investors. In Q4 2022, the median EBITDA multiple for green energy companies was 12.3x, according to Finerva.

Market Outlook

Over the next decade and beyond, renewable energy growth is expected to come primarily via decentralized systems like those offered by Correlate.
The Inflation Reduction Act enacted in late August 2022 is likewise expected to drive growth for the company by providing new tax incentives that reduce costs for clients and/or elevate returns to investors.

Commercial buildings consume more than 35% of the generated electricity in the U.S. and are underperforming in energy efficiency at every level. These buildings waste energy, emit too much carbon and are too costly for owners and occupants, but retrofits are not happening at the rate or scale needed.

In today’s real estate market, portfolio property owners own most commercial buildings, yet most building efficiency work is focused on single buildings, thereby missing the distinct needs of this owner class which are very different from traditional owner-occupiers. The diverse nature of commercial buildings, combined with technology and performance uncertainty, make simple energy optimization initiatives – which could greatly reduce energy use and improve building value – financially unattractive, resulting in slow adoption rates. CIPI’s financial instruments and software breakdown this issue, known as the ‘split incentive’, unlocking the majority of the addressable market.

A key portion of Correlate’s strategy relates to consolidation of what has been a fragmented industry. By uncovering opportunities to improve efficiencies through strategic M&A activities, the company intends to enhance profitability throughout its operations.

Management Team

Todd Michaels is President and CEO of CIPI and founder of Correlate. He formerly served as Vice President for Innovation at SunEdison and Senior Director Distributed Solar at NRG Energy.

He has held executive management roles at Solar Power Partners (acquired by NRG Energy), where he was a founding employee, SunEdison, and NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG). Most recently, Mr. Chen was founder and Managing Partner at Breakaway Energy Partners LLC – a distributed energy financing and market-making platform. To date, Mr. Chen and his teams have raised over $1.5 billion in financing across residential, commercial, and utility scale solar and energy storage projects representing over 400 MWs. He holds a B.A. in Environmental Chemistry from the University of California at San Diego and an MBA from the University of Southern California. He is also an advisor and early-stage investor to several startup companies in the renewable energy space.

Dave Bailey is Chief Revenue Officer of Correlate Inc. With over 15 years of executive sales, supply chain management, and energy efficiency experience, he is responsible for ensuring the success of the National Commercial Sales Unit across multiple regional project teams. Mr. Bailey created and launched the Transformation Services team while at Wesco for its multibillion-dollar Distributed Energy Resource division, formerly Westinghouse. His focus was on IoT-enabled efficiency and plant floor automation-based services. Before that, he spent several years in Global Account Sales Management, with GE Supply as a Program Manager, and is a Commercial Leadership Program graduate. Mr. Bailey received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Kentucky.

Jed Freedlander is the company’s Chief Development Officer. He has a background in infrastructure development and investment and a strong legal, commercial and finance acumen. Mr. Freedlander has a proven track record in leading complex public-private partnership (P3) and energy transactions and is instrumental in driving Correlate’s strategic development initiatives.

Roger Baum is Executive VP Operations at Correlate. With over 20 years of experience at Core Construction, he brings to the company a wealth of knowledge and a strong track record in delivering successful commercial construction projects.

Jason Loyet is Director of Solar Energy for Correlate Inc. He is a cleantech executive with over 20 years of experience leading high growth solar energy and software start-ups. Mr. Loyet is a U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Catalyst award winner for his work building the Solar Site Design technology platform. Before joining the solar energy industry in 2005, he founded and sold two software companies in the streaming media (GlobalStreams) and newspaper publishing (MyCapture) industries. Mr. Loyet currently serves as a Member of the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Solar Energy Industry Association (TenneSEIA).

Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI), closed Friday's trading session at $1.325, off by 5.3571%, on 6,012 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 3,889 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3501/$1.68.

Freight Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: FRGT)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Freight Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: FRGT).

Freight Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: FRGT) (“Fr8Tech”) is a technology company developing solutions to optimize and automate the supply chain process, providing a platform for B2B cross-border shipping in the NAFTA region. The company’s mission is to revolutionize cross-border shipping by providing carriers with increased growth opportunities and shippers with flexibility, visibility and simplicity for the once-complex process of international over-the-road shipping.

Freight Technologies, formerly known as Hudson Capital Inc., assumed its current name and ticker symbol on May 27, 2022. Its primary operating subsidiary and its marketplace are known as Fr8App, and it conducts operations throughout North America under the names of Fr8App and/or Freight App. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with multiple locations across the U.S. and Mexico.

The Fr8Tech Solutions Suite

Fr8Tech leverages artificial intelligence to provide cloud-based platforms aimed at automating the over-the-road transportation process, effectively reducing human touch points and expediting load booking times. The company’s suite of solutions includes:

  • Fr8app – A B2B marketplace powered by AI and Machine Learning offering a real-time broker portal to connect shippers with qualified carriers
  • Fr8Radar – A tracking solution providing shippers and carriers real-time locational data via Fr8app’s mobile solution or through integration with third-party GPS alternatives
  • Fr8TMS – A transportation management system designed to help shippers manage their freight and all of the documents involved in shipping transactions, including invoices, customs documents, confirmation rates and proof of deliveries
  • Fr8FMS – A fleet management system allowing transportation companies to better manage their fleets, reduce operational costs and provide better service to their customers

Commitment to the Environment

Through its core focus on technology, Fr8Tech seeks to reduce the carbon footprint of the logistics industry. Its solutions aim to minimize empty miles for transportation firms and reduce overall paper consumption.


Fr8University is an educational program offering classroom and on-the-job training for Fr8Tech team members. Through the program, employees learn in-depth business fundamentals and applications along the truckload freight industry value chain.

Led by corporate educator Mario Mena, Fr8University is designed as an investment in the company’s human capital, providing an opportunity to communicate Fr8Tech’s corporate culture while accelerating operational growth.

Market Outlook

Fr8Tech’s established foothold in Mexico is key to its current efforts to promote sustainable growth in the cross-border shipping industry. Ongoing disruption in U.S.-Chinese trade relations have strengthened Mexico’s status as the largest trading partner of the U.S., with cross-border annual freight spending estimated at $385 billion according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Annual domestic shipping in Mexico is estimated at $34 billion, while annual domestic shipping in the U.S. is estimated to total $732 billion.

Despite the size of this industry, fragmentation and inefficiencies prevail in the space. Thousands of legacy brokers, tens of thousands of shippers and hundreds of thousands of carriers still rely on outdated systems to arrange transport, spending hours on the phone negotiating pricing, waiting days to find trucks and drivers, preparing and printing forms, and operating without tracking or visibility. Add in cross-border complexity relating to customs and additional paperwork, and you have an industry ripe for technological disruption.

Fr8Tech’s recent revenue growth trends have highlighted the company’s efforts to capitalize on this opportunity. In 2021, Fr8Tech achieved revenues of $21.5 million, marking a year-over-year increase of 134%. The company issued revenue guidance for fiscal 2022 of $40 million in a February 9, 2022, press release, which would account for a further 86% year-over-year increase.

Management Team

Javier Selgas is CEO and a Director of Freight Technologies Inc. and Freight App Inc. He brings to the company over 15 years of experience developing technology and digital marketing strategies, including serving as Country Manager for Osigu, Spain, and as head of AJEgroup’s IT division for the Asia-Pacific region. Prior to joining Fr8Tech, Mr. Selgas founded digital marketing agency Lanzadera Online. He has also served as an IT consultant to major corporations, including Endesa and Ibermatica.

Mike Flinker is President of Fr8Tech. He has over four decades of experience in the transportation industry, with 30+ years focused on cross-border logistics. Prior to joining Fr8Tech, Mr. Flinker founded FLS Transportation, the largest cross-border logistics company in Canada. He also previously held positions with Clarke Transport Inc., Canadian Pacific and Reimer Express Inc. (a division of Roadway Express).

Paul Freudenthaler is the company’s CFO and Secretary to the company Board. He has over 30 years of financial expertise, having previously served as CFO for several leading companies across multiple countries, including Macquarie in Mexico, Old Mutual in Latin America and Ascentium Capital in the U.S. Mr. Freudenthaler’s experience include leadership roles from which he guided IPOs and M&A transactions.

Luisa Lopez is COO of Fr8Tech. She brings to the company 25+ years of management experience in logistics, supply chain, operations and customer service. Ms. Lopez previously served as a Director of Landstar, where she was responsible for commercial and client development strategies in the Mexican market. Additionally, she managed more than 2,000 transport units specialized in staff and school mobility while with Traxion in Mexico.

Freight Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: FRGT), closed Friday's trading session at $0.3774, off by 4.2132%, on 169,287 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 695,596 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2806/$8.60.
