(WTER), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
The Alkaline Water Company, Inc. has developed an inventive, state-of-the-art, proprietary electrolysis beverage process. This process produces healthy alkaline water. The water is packaged and sold in 500ml, 700ml, 1-liter, 3-liter and 1-gallon sizes under the trade name Alkaline88®. Alkaline88's premier alkaline water is a pH balanced bottled alkaline drinking water enhanced with trace minerals and electrolytes. OTCQB-listed, The Alkaline Water Company is based in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Company currently packages and sells its alkaline water to more than 40,000 retail locations in all 50 states. The design of Alkaline88 is to encourage daily consumption of Alkaline Water through a consumer-oriented bulk delivery system aimed at removing expensive small bottles from the distribution supply chain. The production of Alkaline88 is at an 8.8 pH, intended to achieve optimal body balance.
The Alkaline Water Company incorporated 84 beneficial trace Himalayan minerals to make Alkaline88 especially unique to other pH waters. It uses an advanced Electrochemically Activated Water (ECA) system to create 8.8 pH drinking water without the use of any chemicals. The ECA process utilizes specialized electronic cells coated with a variety of rare earth minerals to produce scientifically engineered water. Alkaline88® is now available at select retailers in a 1.5-liter bottle and a 1-liter 6-pack.

(BIVI), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
BioVie, Inc. concentrates on the discovery, development, and commercialization of unique drug therapies for liver disease. At present, the clinical-stage Company is focusing on commercializing BIV201. This is a novel approach to the treatment of ascites due to chronic liver cirrhosis. BioVie has its head office in Beverly, Massachusetts. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.
BioVie states that BIV201 has the potential to improve the health of thousands of patients suffering from life-threatening complications of liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis, NASH, and alcoholism. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued US Patent No. 9,655,945 covering BioVie’s new drug candidate BIV201.
BIV201 has Orphan Drug designation for the most common of these complications, ascites, which represents a significant unmet medical need. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never approved any drug specifically for treating ascites. In addition to patient suffering, U.S. treatment costs for liver cirrhosis, including ascites and other complications, are estimated at greater than $4 billion annually.
BIV201 is a continuous infusion of the peptide terlipressin, first undergoing development for the treatment of refractory ascites. Terlipressin, dosed differently, is approved in about 40 nations for other complications of liver cirrhosis coming up from a similar disease pathway. Terlipressin is not available in the U.S.
BioVie announced in April of 2017 that it received notice from the FDA that the planned Phase 2a clinical trial of its new drug candidate BIV201 could begin. This was based on BioVie’s IND to conduct a study in patients with refractory or intractable ascites due to advanced liver cirrhosis.
In addition, BioVie was notified by the USPTO that its application for a core patent covering the use of BIV201 to reduce ascites formation in ambulatory patients was authorized. BioVie also announced in April of 2017 the signing of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). This is to conduct a Phase 2a clinical trial of BIV201 in patients with refractory or intractable ascites because of advanced liver cirrhosis.
BioVie announced in December of 2017 that the FDA granted Fast Track designation for BIV201 (continuous infusion terlipressin), the Company's patented Orphan drug candidate. BIV201 is now undergoing evaluation for the treatment of refractory ascites due to liver cirrhosis in a mid-stage (Phase 2a) US clinical trial.
Recently, BioVie announced that it achieved 50 percent enrolments of the patients in its open-label Phase 2a clinical study of BIV201 (continuous infusion terlipressin) for treating refractory ascites due to advanced liver cirrhosis.
Penny Markham, PhD, BioVie Chief Scientist, stated, “The patients we are targeting for BIV201 therapy are desperately ill and experience a miserable quality of life. Absent liver transplantation, their outcomes are very poor. We are pleased to be working on developing a novel drug candidate that could potentially improve their future.”
BioVie, Inc. (BIVI), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.05, up 16.28%, on 15,000 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 78,843 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.012/$0.27.

Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARPO)
OTC Markets, HotStockCafe, HighRisingStocks, Street Insider, OTC Stock Picks, and MarketWatch reported previously on Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARPO), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Aerpio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. centers on first-in-class treatments for ocular diseases. The Company’s lead compound is AKB‐9778. This is a small molecule activator of the Tie2 pathway. It is in clinical development for the treatment of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. A biopharmaceutical Company, Aerpio Pharmaceuticals has its corporate office in Cincinnati, Ohio.
AKB-9778 is currently in a Phase 2b study (TIME-2b) for the treatment of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR). This is a disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is a complication of diabetes caused by damage to blood vessels in the retina. AKB-9778 is undergoing development as a subcutaneous injection.
Aerpio Pharmaceuticals’ second program in development builds on its unique approach to targeting the Tie2 pathway. ARP-1536 is a humanized monoclonal antibody. It works by binding the extracellular domain of VE-PTP, inhibiting its ability to interact with the Tie2 receptor. This prevents the inactivation of Tie2. It also promotes vascular stability.
ARP-1536 is in pre-clinical development. Aerpio’s plan is to develop ARP-1536 in combination with anti-VEGF therapy for the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME).
The Company’s AKB-4924 is in Phase 1 clinical development. Aerpio’s plan is to develop it as a once-daily, oral treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). AKB-4924 is an innovative small molecule inhibitor of prolyl-hydroxylase domain enzymes (PHDs).
This week, Aerpio Pharmaceuticals announced the initiation of dosing in a Phase 1a, multiple-ascending dose study of its hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha) stabilizer, AKB-4924. AKB-4924 is a once-daily, oral, gut-restricted HIF-1 alpha stabilizer. It has been shown to improve disease indices in numerous models of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The goal of the current study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple daily doses of AKB-4924 in healthy volunteers.
Mr. Kevin Peters, MD, Aerpio Pharmaceuticals’ Chief Scientific Officer, said, “Unlike other HIF stabilizers that mainly affect HIF-2 and stimulate erythropoiesis, AKB-4924 is unique in that it preferentially stabilizes HIF-1 alpha, which has a profound anti-inflammatory and mucosal healing effect. These properties make it an ideal candidate for the treatment of IBD.”

Molori Energy, Inc. has current operations in the Texas Panhandle West Field. The Company’s operating team based in Borger, Texas has wide-ranging experience in the oil and gas industry in the Texas Panhandle. Molori Energy's business model is to deliver sustainable growth in shareholder value through focusing on exploiting its existing reserves, commercializing and developing discoveries, and pursuing selective acquisitions.
An oil and gas production enterprise, Molori Energy is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company formerly went by the name Taipan Resources, Inc. It changed its name to Molori Energy Inc. in January 2017.
Molori’s strategy has been to engage in low-risk well reactivations in the Texas Panhandle to produce steady cash flows. More than 60 wells have been reactivated so far. These are producing from the prolific Brown Dolomite formation.

Molori and Ponderosa Energy have identified a development opportunity in the Red Cave formation. The formation is common throughout its leases at a shallower depth of 2,100’ to 2,300’. Improved fracing technologies and completion techniques have shown the Red Cave to be an economic development target.
Molori Energy announced this past February a commercial oil discovery on its acreage in Moore County, Texas. The "Thompson 23-1R" well, operated by the Company, is a northern step-out well drilled in December 2017. The Thompson 23-1R well is directly north of the active development area of Adams Affiliates.
Recently, Molori Energy announced that it signed an LOI (Letter of Intent) to purchase a 100 percent WI of which Molori will be the operator of record in an additional roughly 5,100 gross acres of land in Moore, Potter, and Carson Counties, north Texas.
With this agreement, Molori Energy is to hold a 100 percent WI in the leases, some of which border lands where Adams Affiliates of Tulsa, Oklahoma is now developing oil and gas production from the Red Cave formation.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
CFN Media Group, the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry, announces publication of an article discussing The Supreme Cannabis Company (TSX-V: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1), and how the company could capitalize on early legalization struggles. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report highlighting the company which examines the recent news that the cannabis industry is seeing repeated waves of growth, creating challenges for supply and distribution. Additionally, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. is “One to Watch.”
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”
Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.
In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.
“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”
The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.
Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.
To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)
Market anxiety over the potential inability of cobalt to continue supplying lithium-ion computer battery production demand underscores the excitement junior explorer First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC) is experiencing as it finds increasing resource potential at its flagship project in Idaho.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2152, up 15.57%, on 371,990 volume with 137 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 208,791 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1382/$1.3041.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Biotechnology company Earth Science Tech (OTCQB: ETST) recently tapped into a growing sector of the massive cannabis industry by commencing work on the formulation of a full-spectrum CBD beverage. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/JoQ6B.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise.

Using encapsulation technology, Phivida uses full spectrum CBD-hemp oil (rich in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids) converted into a water-soluble delivery format, which enhances delivery and absorption of the cannabinoids into the human body – up to an estimated tenfold.
Encapsulated CBD is infused into functional beverages, food and supplements containing a proprietary blend of phytonutraceuticals studied to target a range of health and wellness conditions. Phivida tests every product for microbials, heavy metals, pesticides, residual solvents, terpenes, and potency to guarantee less than 0.3 percent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for a euphoric high) is present.
Federally legal under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD from Hemp Oil is a rapid growth market across the USA. When derived from marijuana, CBD remains a schedule one controlled substances, giving hemp derived CBD oil infused products a competitive advantage on regulations. On June 28, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (i.e. the “Farm Bill), lifting the USA Industrial Hemp laws to an agricultural commodity status and effectively removed hemp from the controlled substance list.
Earlier this year, another milestone court ruling also provided significant regulatory support for the US CBD-Hemp sector. In February 2018, the Supreme Court preceded over the HIA (Hemp Industry Association) vs. DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in a class-action suit concerning the issue of CBD extracted from hemp, and the legality of industrial hemp. In the final ruling the Supreme Court unequivocally determined that – when produced domestically under the Farm Bill – hemp (and its derivatives) are not a controlled substance.
The Supreme Court ruling also found the Farm Bill (as it relates to hemp) “pre-empts” the Controlled Substances Act. Congress has since exempted Farm Bill hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) giving the Farm Bill primary jurisdiction over the governance of the CBD-Hemp Oil industry in the USA.
The DEA further conceded it does not “seek to control cannabinoids,” and that only marijuana derived cannabinoids are governed under the Controlled Substances Act. In May of 2018, the DEA issued a formal directive to all federal agencies (e.g. US Customs and Border Patrol) stating that cannabinoids are not controlled substances unless derived from marijuana, and that the “mere presence of cannabinoids” in any product or derivative does not render it a controlled substance. The Supreme Court ruling also resulted in the mediation of a settlement in what is now the third successful HIA vs. DEA suit in over a decade.
In Canada, the Senate approval of Bill C-45 legalized the production, distribution and use of recreation cannabis – with edibles to be added in 2019. The bill will officially become law as of October 17, 2018, creating a legal framework for the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada including cannabinoid-infused beverages.

The company invests in diverse industries within the commercial, defense/aerospace, industrial, communication, medical, crypto-mining, hospitality, textile, and corporate investment/lending sectors. DPW has evolved and grown from being a leader in advanced power products. Through its subsidiaries, the company continues to be a leader and supplier of innovative technologies, advanced design and development services, and state-of-the-art power products and solutions.
Through its wholly owned Coolisys Technologies, Inc. subsidiary, DPW is committed to offering world-class technology-based solutions for critical applications and lifesaving services that are primarily driven by innovation. Coolisys targets to the defense, aerospace, naval, homeland security, medical, telecom, datacom and industrial markets. Its growth strategy centers on core markets that are characterized by “high barriers to entry” and require specialized products and services not likely to be commoditized. Through a portfolio of companies, Coolisys is engaged in developing and manufacturing advanced switching power products and power solutions that utilize a customized digital power management and resonant topology to attain:

DPW’s portfolio of wholly owned subsidiaries also includes Digital Power Lending, LLC (DPL), a California private lending company operating under Financial Lender’s License ##60DBO-77905. DPL is dedicated to strategically providing capital to small and middle-size businesses for an equity interest in addition to loan fees and interest. DPL provides secured and unsecured debt financing for public and private companies. These loans will typically have a six to 12-month maturity and range from $250,000-$5 million. DPL is active in bridge loans, receivable financing, inter company loans and micro loans. DPL will work with a network of company owned ATMs (terminals) in California, which will help utilize its CA Finance Lending License and enable the company to offer micro loans of up to $500 or less.
Management has over 50 years of Wall Street experience of investing in, and building companies. DPL’s desire is to bring world-class companies lending opportunities while allowing main street investors to participate.

Super Crypto Mining is a rapidly growing organization that recently strategically secured 25 mega watts to power the company’s mining farm. For crypto currency mining, locations with inexpensive power and secure capacity are minimal and hence costly. Having such a location allows the company to grow its mining business to more than 20,000 mining machines. Super Crypto Mining continues to purchase mining machines and explore opportunities to expand its services into other related areas including mining farm real estate investments, mining machine development, and mainstream blockchain projects.
DPW additionally has beneficiary ownership in MTIX International, Inc., the parent company of MTIX, Ltd. and I.AM, Inc.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) was featured today in a report by CannabisNewsWire which examines how the cannabis industry is seeing repeated waves of growth, creating challenges for supply and distribution. SinglePoint is one of the companies tackling distribution problems through the establishment of an online store selling CBD products.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
- Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
- Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
- Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.
SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), closed the day's trading session at $0.0268, up 5.10%, on 2,956,027 volume with 112 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 4,581,120 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.025/$0.133.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)
Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC:MCOA) was featured today in a report examining how CBD has long been a consistent performer of the overall cannabis market as industry leaders have enjoyed the flexibility of loopholes surrounding legalities, as well as a rising consumer sentiment toward alternative health options. Read this and more news for MCOA at: http://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-mcoa/. Also today, the company announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, hempSMART™, is launching a direct response television ad campaign in a strategic partnership with asseenontv.pro (ASONTV).
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.
The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.
The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.
Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program. Through hempSMART, MCOA’s strategic approach to the distribution of products is through a networking architecture geared to maintain customer loyalty and capture market share. The patent-pending product “hempSMART Brain,” is designed to revolutionize the safe and effective support of healthy brain function. The brand new product, HempSMART DROPS, is a full-spectrum CBD tincture formulated with hemp and fractionated coconut oils. The hempSMART marketing team has decades of experience, and is well positioned to take the hempSMART brand to a global audience.
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA), closed the day's trading session at $0.021, up 2.94%, on 12,096,978 volume with 411 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,055,844 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0199/$0.073.

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR)
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), a vertically integrated Canadian cannabis company, aims to be the top supplier of premium, non-irradiated cannabis to the Canadian medicinal and recreational-use markets. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/1TP7c.
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), a Health Canada Licensed Producer (LP) of cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), is an emerging Canadian cannabis leader founded by Medreleaf co-founder Tom Flow and a team of industry pioneers, successful start-up executives and top industry scientists. Flowr’s purpose-built cultivation facilities may be the most advanced in the industry, consistently generating high crop yields, delivering premium and ultra-premium cannabis products, and maximizing return on investment. The company also may be an R&D leader as it was selected by the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company as its exclusive Canadian cannabis R&D partner.
Flowr’s flagship facility, an 84,000-square-foot campus on seven acres in Kelowna, British Columbia, is engineered to grow premium cannabis in rooms that meet pharmaceutical industry production standards for cleanliness. This, along with exacting protocols designed by the Flowr team, enables Flowr to grow cannabis that meets Health Canada’s stringent standards without treating it with the taste- and smell-killing gamma irradiation that most other producers have to use to clean their product. Irradiating the plant – a process similar to pasteurizing food – impairs many of the important terpenes that provide the positive effects, flavors and scents of cannabis while strengthening unpleasant terpenes. Flowr’s products may deliver a better user experience, thus commanding premium prices.
Flowr’s cultivation facilities, built with proprietary, patent-pending systems, are designed to deliver yields targeted at 450 grams per square foot by the end of 2022, which is three times more efficient than the industry average of approximately 150 grams per square foot. By optimizing yield, the Company may produce significantly more cannabis flower on a smaller footprint than other producers, thus generating far high revenue per square foot and keeping costs much lower, leading to higher margins. The Kelowna facility is presently 20 percent operational with the remaining 80 percent slated to come online by early 2019. It is expected to produce up to 14,000 kg of premium, non-irradiated cannabis flower in 2019. With further enhanced yields and planned expansion of production facilities on the campus, Flowr will reach a total capacity of 60,000 kg annually in 2022.
Leading Flowr’s cultivation program is industry pioneer, company co-founder and Flowr president Tom Flow. Flow is widely recognized for his cannabis thought leadership and expertise building and operating cannabis cultivation facilities. Flow also co-founded MedReleaf and designed, built and set up SOPs for their flagship Marcum cultivation facility. Marcum has continued to be perhaps the most productive facility in the country prior to the Flowr flagship facility. Long one of Canada’s most efficient and profitable LPs, MedReleaf was acquired by Aurora for approximately C$3 billion. Flow and his team have designed and built a total of 17 cultivation facilities and secured three producer’s licenses under various Canadian regulatory regimes.
In March 2018, Flowr and the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company – a world leader in lawn and garden products – announced an exclusive strategic R&D alliance. After evaluating numerous Canadian LPs, Hawthorne chose to partner with Flowr based on the experience and expertise of the company’s cultivation and R&D teams and the company’s advanced growing capabilities.
Hawthorne will fund the construction of a 50,000-square-foot R&D facility that is integrated into Flowr’s Kelowna campus. This facility is North America’s first dedicated cannabis R&D facility focused on advancing cultivation techniques and systems. The facility will support researchers from both organizations and combine laboratories, indoor and greenhouse grow suites, training areas and genetics breeding areas in a single building. It is expected to open in early 2019. In addition to helping Flowr maintain its competitive advantage in cultivation, the company’s R&D program will keep it on the cutting edge of cannabis innovation.
Flowr is entering the market with three different brands to meet the growing demand for premium, non-irradiated cannabis in the medicinal and adult use markets:
- FlowrRx, featuring premium quality medicinal cannabis that enables patients to live better, fuller lives. A dedicated Client Services team will provide patients with personalized support while an R&D team develops innovative flower strains and premium products targeted to specific conditions. Patient well-being is considered at every stage of the process – from genetic selection to harvest, trimming and curing techniques. FlowrRx and its team of passionate scientists and leading cultivation specialists are dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of cannabis.
- Flowr is the company’s premium recreational adult-use brand featuring an active, West Coast-inspired lifestyle for the cannabis connoisseur and enthusiast market. Through the continuous innovation of procedures and practices, Flowr’s talented team of experts is crafting premium products that deliver unparalleled experiences.
- Ace Valley, an exclusive partnership with top-selling Ontario craft beer company Ace Hill, will bring Flowr’s premium product to the millennial and casual adult-use markets under the Ace Valley brand.
Flowr recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, the province’s sole legal wholesaler of non-medical cannabis, to supply premium and ultra-premium flower to the province’s retail outlets. The company has agreements with several major medical distributors and is in discussions about retail distribution with additional provinces where it believes it can obtain prices commensurate with the quality of the Flowr products. The company is also evaluating other market opportunities including export.
Flowr is poised to become the pre-eminent indoor premium cannabis grower in Canada and one of the country’s top five LPs. The company’s focus on yield, quality and price point and its team’s ability to grow at scale should drive high margins, significant growth and strong return on investment.
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), closed the day's trading session at $3.67, up 1.94%, on 98,867 volume with 120 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 149,739 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $3.11/$8.00.

(NASDAQ: NETE) (“Net Element” or the “Company”), a global technology and value-added solutions group that supports electronic payments acceptance in a multi-channel environment including point-of-sale (“POS”), e-commerce and mobile devices, announces the launch of Aptito, its comprehensive POS solution on PoyntSmart Payment Terminal. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how NETE is at the forefront of offering payment solutions to the cannabis industry.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT)
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (TSX-V: BCT) (OTCQB:BCTXF), an immuno-oncology focused biotechnology company with a proprietary targeted immunotherapy technology, is pleased to announce that Dr. Bill Williams, BriaCell’s president and CEO, was recently interviewed by Everett Jolly of Stock Day.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), based in Berkeley, CA, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of targeted immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer.
BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.
The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.
BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.
BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.
Breast Cancer Statistics
The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.
Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.
The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (BCTXF), closed the day's trading session at $0.083, even for the day, on 10,000 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 18,181 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.068/$0.1387.

Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP)
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (OTCMKTS: DVLP), an emerging leader in the Cannabis and CBD marketplace, is very excited to announce its Letter of Intent to acquire a rapidly growing Cannabis dispensary PoS advertising player, in a restricted stock and cash deal valued on a pre-acquisition basis at over $4 million.
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), an emerging leader in ancillary software and the cannabidiol (CBD) products marketplace, provides business services and/or products supporting the cannabis industry including an online retail business for CBD, hemp oil and health/wellness related products.
Global acceptance of cannabis and related CBD products continues to increase as North America advances toward favorable legislation. Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, and the United States has 30 states and the District of Columbia allowing either recreational or medical cannabis, or both. Voters in four additional U.S. states will consider marijuana initiatives on the November 2018 ballot. The global legal cannabis market is projected to reach USD$146 billion by the end of 2025, with a greater acceptance of medical cannabis products as a driving factor, according to Grand View Research.
DVLP is taking advantage of consumer demand for CBD products through its wholly owned Pura Vida Vitamins, LLC subsidiary, which recently launched a direct-to-consumer website (www.PuraVidaVitamins.com) and commenced sales of Pura Vida branded products. Pura Vida merchandise includes hemp and CBD-related products and other products focusing on health and lifestyle which are available through established wholesale and distribution channels. In addition, a line of CBD pet supplements and other products are in development.
DVLP recently acquired “Where’s Weed” (Layer Six Media LLC DBA “Where’s Weed”) and its primary asset, WheresWeed.com. Where’s Weed is an American cannabis technology company known for connecting medical and recreational cannabis users with trusted local marijuana businesses in their communities. As a rapidly growing community-based online resource for cannabis consumers with a host of user-friendly services, Where’s Weed offers a sophisticated mobile app with strong traction and powerful growth potential as the North American legal cannabis market continues to expand exponentially.
WheresWeed.com has a large and expanding reach with nearly 3 million pageviews per month. In addition, the WheresWeed mobile app, available in both iOS and Android, has been downloaded over 80,000 times, proving to be complementary to DVLP’s objective to capitalize on the massive growth curve in the marijuana space.
“The huge flood of new growers and producers is likely to create oversupply in the near term, narrowing margins for major producers,” says DVLP CEO Stavros Triant. “However, this should actually increase the net number of new consumers in the marketplace, further reinforcing the enormous growth potential for hub service providers in the space that are situated on high-traffic internet real estate, which is exactly how we view the Where’s Weed property.”
The company’s move into the lucrative C-store snack market was solidified with a material purchase order for CBD oils from a major distributor specializing in the snack foods and accessories to the convenience store and gas station market. The order represents significant progress as DVLP gears up its ready-made snack distribution strategy for its CBD products.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of our CBD product line with this distributor,” Triant states. “The C-Store strategy dovetails perfectly with our direct marketing strategy through our primary online retail channel, and we have indications from the distributor that, if this initial test order goes well, successive Purchase Orders could be significant and underpin strong sales growth in Q1 2019.”
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), closed the day's trading session at $0.03, off by 2.91%, on 1,225,529 volume with 99 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 748,824 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0125/$0.14.
