Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF)

MarketWatch, 4-Traders, OTC Markets, Barchart, Dividend Investor, Investors Hangout, OtcStockWatch.com, and Penny Stock Hub reported on Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A mineral exploration and development company, Bluestone Resources, Inc. concentrates on advancing its 100 percent owned Cerro Blanco Gold and Mita Geothermal Projects in Guatemala. On February 14, 2018, the Company announced that its common shares began trading on the OTCQB Venture Marketplace. Bluestone Resources trades now on the OTCQB Venture under the symbol "BBSRF". Its common shares continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "BSR". Bluestone Resources has its corporate headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Cerro Blanco Project economics and updated mineral resource estimate for Cerro Blanco indicates a strong project with an expected nine-year mine life producing 952,000 ounces of gold and 3,141,000 ounces of silver. Initial capital expenditures estimated in the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) to fund construction and commissioning is estimated at US$170.8 million with all in sustaining cash estimated to be US$490 per ounce of gold produced. The Cerro Blanco Project is a classic hot springs-related, low sulphidation gold-silver deposit.

Last month, Bluestone Resources provided an update concerning the permitted Mita Geothermal Project situated adjacent to Bluestone’s Cerro Blanco Gold Project in Guatemala. The Mita Geothermal Project is in southeast Guatemala, roughly 160 kilometers by road from the capital, Guatemala City. The Company’s Board of Directors approved a flow test program to further test select geothermal wells with the aim of upgrading the confidence level of the known geothermal reservoir. The data collected will provide the foundation for the development strategy going forward.

A total of 19 geothermal wells have been drilled at the Mita Geothermal Project. This includes nine slim holes and ten standard diameter wells. US$60 million has been invested into this Project so far.

The Mita geothermal resource was discovered in the late 1990’s during gold exploration in southeastern Guatemala. Bluestone Resources controls the necessary surface rights for the Mita Geothermal Project and the Cerro Blanco Project. The Cerro Blanco Gold Project is not dependent on the Mita Geothermal Project. However, Company Management’s belief is that there are potential synergies between the two, which enhance the economics of the Cerro Blanco Gold Project beyond what was outlined in the PEA.

In addition, in January, Bluestone Resources announced an update on the exploration and in-fill drilling program now taking place at its Cerro Blanco Gold Project. The work is being undertaken in combination with the start of the Feasibility Study (FS) announced on September 18, 2017.

Recent results include numerous high-grade underground channel sample assays, for example 270.5 g/t Au and 637 g/t Ag over 2.5 m, which continue to confirm the bonanza-style veins and vein swarms at Cerro Blanco. Three drill rigs are presently operational on surface. Furthermore, an underground in-fill drill program has now started.

Last week, Bluestone Resources announced the creation of a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). This is to provide impartial advice and peer review over the Cerro Blanco FS, expected to be completed by the end of this year. This Committee will help identify risks and opportunities working closely with Bluestone Resources’ Management and Consultants on material technical elements of the project.

A.L (Alf) Hills will Chair the Technical Advisory Committee. The composition of the committee will be made up of six members. These are Alf Hills, Allan Moss, Roger Nendick, Donald Scott, Robert Sim and Ward Wilson.

Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $1.1256, down 3.83%, on 600 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 3,177 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.8593/$1.35.

Titan Medical, Inc. (TITXF)

BullRally, PennyStockVille, StockRich, OTC Markets Group, CoolPennyStocks, HotOTC, MadPennyStocks, and Sharemkt Tips reported earlier on Titan Medical, Inc. (TITXF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Titan Medical, Inc. centers on the design, development, and commercialization of a robotic surgical system for application in minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Currently under development, the Company’s SPORT Surgical System includes a surgeon-controlled robotic platform that features multi-articulating instruments for performing MIS procedures via a single port. A medical device company, Titan Medical is based in Toronto, Ontario. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

The SPORT Surgical System is a unique single incision robotic surgical system. It has undergone development based on clinical user needs. It is covered by 14 patents and 37 pending applications.

The SPORT Surgical System provides access to underserved market segments, such as ambulatory surgery centers. Regarding Open Display, the 3D high definition 32-inch display provides a first-rate balance of surgical immersion and situational awareness in the Operating Room (OR).

Titan’s surgical system includes a workstation that provides a surgeon with an advanced ergonomic interface to the robotic platform for controlling the instruments and also provides a 3D high-definition endoscopic view inside a patient's body.

Titan Medical is planning to commercialize its single incision surgical system - first in Europe and then in the United States.

Earlier this month, Titan Medical announced the granting of Canadian Patent CA 2973227 and CA 2973235. These patents are related generally to control methods for robotic surgical systems. This includes the provision of select autonomous control and safety functions that enable optimal controllability of robotic instruments during use.

The methods describe alignment control of robotic instruments, including snake-like or multi-articulated instruments as utilized in the SPORT system that are important for facilitating movement within the abdomen. Corresponding patent applications are pending in the United States and Europe. Titan anticipates future issuances in numerous jurisdictions.

Last week, Titan Medical reported the successful first use of its SPORT Surgical System in Europe. These studies in general and urologic surgery at the Institute of Image-Guided Surgery at the Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire de Strasbourg, France are part of the feasibility and validation studies intended to support regulatory submissions.

Mr. David McNally, Titan Medical President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “After our installation of the SPORT system at IHU Strasbourg earlier this month, surgeons have now successfully completed the first preclinical single-port robotic surgeries in Europe using the SPORT system. We are honored that highly-regarded surgeons …directed and performed a variety of abdominal, oncologic and urologic procedures. These first-use studies provide valuable insight into procedures we may focus on during commercialization.”

Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF)

Gold Investment Letter and Real Pennies reported earlier on Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Bravada Gold Corp. is a Nevada-focused exploration and development company. It has a large portfolio of high-quality properties. These properties encompass a range of development stages. This is from early-stage exploration to advanced-stage exploration and pre-development. Bravada Gold is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Bravada Gold retains residual working or royalty interests. The Company explores for precious metals in well-established gold trends in one of the globe’s best gold jurisdictions. At present, five of its Nevada properties are being funded by partners. In total this includes earn-in work expenditures of up to $6.5 million and payments to Bravada Gold of up to +$3.0 million in cash and shares. Bravada holds a royalty on eventual barite production on its Shoshone Pediment Project.

Regarding its Wind Mountain project, the Company’s plan is to drill-test for high-grade “Hishikari-type” gold/silver vein mineralization beneath the existing disseminated resource at Wind Mountain. Concerning the SF property, Bravada plans to drill-test for high-grade “Carlin-type” gold mineralization at this property.

Pertaining to the North Lone Mountain and South Lone Mountain projects, plans have not been finalized for Bravada Gold’s two claim groups. However, Nevada Zinc continues to expand the footprint of zinc mineralization on its claims towards Bravada’s South Lone Mountain claims. Should Nevada Zinc complete the purchase of these claims, Bravada will retain a royalty on base and precious metals.

This past December, Bravada Gold announced that drilling is underway at its 100 percent owned low-sulfidation Wind Mountain project. Two reverse-circulation holes are planned, one roughly 450m deep and the other roughly 750m deep. The design of the holes is to be proof-of-concept holes. More holes may be added depending on drilling costs and results. The Wind Mountain Project is the Company’s past-producing gold/silver property in north-western Nevada.

Last month, Bravada Gold reported that two proof-of-concept holes were completed in December and early January at the Wind Mountain Project. The reverse-circulation holes were drilled about 1,500m apart.

Alteration and geochemistry indicate that the southerly hole intersected mineralization with characteristics of being up-dip from a feeder zone. In addition, the northerly hole intersected characteristics of being down-dip from a feeder zone. This indicates that the feeder lies between these holes. Each hole intersected a low-angle fault, which separates the Tertiary volcanic and sedimentary host rocks from Mesozoic metamorphosed basement rocks.

Recently, Bravada Gold announced that it received notice that Coeur Explorations, Inc. elected to relinquish its option to purchase Bravada's interest in the Quito property positioned along the Austin Gold trend in central Nevada. Since July of 2015 Coeur Explorations has been funding Bravada Gold, as Operator, in the conduct of exploration at Quito, with recent focus upon completion of permitting to allow drilling this year at the Quito Extension target.

This target was developed during the 2016 exploration program. Around US$600,000 has been received by Bravada Gold by way of this funding, which has been credited to its earn-in obligations to earn its interest in Quito.

Mr. Joe Kizis, Bravada Gold President, said, "Exploration work funded by Coeur has greatly advanced Quito to a 'drill-ready' stage. Bravada will continue to permit four drill sites and plans to drill 4 to 6 holes for 1,600m beginning in the third quarter of 2018 with the intent to test the down-plunge extension of the high-grade mineralization that occurs along the intersection of two primary faults and several secondary faults; this target has not been tested to depth."

Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.085, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 19,475 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0732/$0.2567.

The Company’s mission is to create clean and consistent products in medical grade facilities. It is now looking at expanding its mark into Washington, Oregon, California, and Arizona.

Corix Bioscience’s methods enable it to create and breed new and existing plant strains from tissue cells free of any pathogens or disease. The Company grows these plants to maturity and extracts the oils that are the "medicine" portion of the plant.

Corix Bioscience has purchased 100 percent of Pharmaceutical Development Corp. This enables Corix to commence selling its proprietary cannabis products internationally.

Pharmaceutical Development's manufacturing facility is in Lesotho, South Africa. It received the first cannabis license in all of South Africa.

Pharmaceutical Development has an export treaty. This treaty allows them to export cannabis and CBD oil to about 30-plus different countries in the European Union (EU), Canada, Australia, Mexico, Brazil and New Zealand.

Last month, Corix Bioscience announced that it will joint venture (JV) with ChampRX for its products. Corix will provide ChampRX with a 100 percent THC free product centered on athletes. Corix will be their official CBD manufacturer and a 25 percent equity holder in ChampRX.

In addition, Corix Bioscience will have access to the marketing for ChampRX and its partners. With this agreement, Corix will provide the science and manufacturing behind the products and ChampRX will market and promote the product. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) recently decided to remove cannabidiol (CBD) from its list of banned substances in 2018.

Highlights from the past three months for Corix Bioscience include a rewarding harvest of industrial hemp in Carson City, Nevada; and purchasing $1mm worth of processing equipment fully in cash (without financing).

Highlights also include acquiring Pharmaceutical Development Corp LTD in Lesotho, South Africa; shipping its first set of samples to Switzerland and beginning marketing in the European market, as well as creating the aforementioned Joint Venture with ChampRX.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V:PQE) (OTCQX:PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF). Today, Petroteq Energy Inc. closed trading at $1.11099, up 0.66%, on 49,409 volume with 66 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 62,638, and its 52-week low/high is $0.015/$1.8892.

Blockchain technology has a wide range of applications across different industries, and Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF), a leading developer and provider of proprietary technology for the energy industry, has just demonstrated one more. The company’s innovative PetroBLOQ blockchain platform is a pioneer development in the oil and gas industry, aiming to take the shared economy concept one step further by making a number of industry intermediaries redundant and, consequently, reducing the cost of transactions in supply chain management (http://nnw.fm/6ZWyG).

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQB: PQEFF), with headquarters in Canada, seeks to create the world's largest pure-play cobalt exploration and development company. The company's current focus is on its Greater Cobalt Project located in Silver Centre, Ontario. The company is also in the midst of a three-way merger with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc. and on completion First Cobalt will control over 10,000 hectares of prospective land and 50 historic mining operations in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario, Canada, as well as a mill and a permitted refinery facility.

The merger agreements with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc., announced earlier this year, will result in a combined land position of more than 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) in the Cobalt Camp containing approximately 50 past cobalt/silver producers and working mines. Initial test results from a mineralogical assessment of sample material taken from various historical mines located throughout the Cobalt Camp show both cobalt-rich and silver-rich mineralization styles. Samples taken at the former Bellellen mine, located within the Greater Cobalt Project in Ontario, show high grade cobalt assays, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site.

Petroteq Energy Inc. 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.

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, Petroteq Energy Inc. and its mining interests are primed for success.

Petroteq Energy Inc. 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.

ABcann Global (TSX.V:ABCN) (OTCQB:ABCCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ABcann Global (ABCCF). Today, ABcann Global closed trading at $1.60, up 15.94%, on 779,435 volume with 803 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 777,744 and its 52-week low/high is $0.6171/$3.2929.

ABcann Global Corporation (TSXV:ABCN) is pleased to announce that it has closed its bought deal financing, as previously announced on January 29, 2018, of: (i) 11,500,000 units (each, a “Unit”) of the Company at a price of $3.50 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $40,250,000; and (ii) 30,000 6.0% unsecured convertible debentures (each, a “Convertible Debenture”) of the Company at a price of $1,000 per Convertible Debenture, for aggregate gross proceeds of $30,000,000.

ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) ABcann Medicinals, Inc. is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed Canadian medical marijuana producers under Canada's federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), ABcann has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space. The company currently owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario. Additionally, ABcann owns 65 acres of real estate with proper zoning and existing infrastructure in place to support the construction of another production facility of up to one million square feet.

In a November 2016 report, market research firm Canaccord Genuity Group forecasted that the medical marijuana market in Canada could see sales in excess of $8 billion by 2024, creating a sizable opportunity for the country's licensed producers (LPs). The research firm also noted that the "rigorous process of becoming a licensed producer of cannabis in Canada imposes significant barriers to entry and there will be a shortfall of supply in a legalized market in the short-term." This market barrier serves as a strategic advantage for ABcann as it prepares for its highly-anticipated IPO, which is currently scheduled for April 2017.

Canaccord's synopsis of the Canadian cannabis industry is supported by recent market activity, as companies sporting one of the illustrious Canadian government licenses for medicinal production have recorded strong growth following IPO. Canopy Growth (OTC: TWMJ), one of the largest fully-licensed Canadian marijuana growers, saw share prices skyrocket by more than 700 percent in the months following its initial offering. Aphria Inc. (OTC: APHQF), another licensed grower, climbed by more than 900 percent following its IPO. Other companies that have recorded huge growth since going public include Aurora Cannabis (OTC: ACBFF), climbing nearly 900 percent, and SupremePharma (OTC: SPRWF), which soared more than 1,300 percent.

With these market trends in mind, ABcann's impending IPO is one that prospective investors in the marijuana sector will want to explore. Recalls from some of the biggest players in the Canadian cannabis industry have highlighted the considerable learning curve that LPs face in today's market, which makes ABcann's proven track record in the market all the more noteworthy. The company has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis, including the thoughtful omission of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that allows ABcann to minimize the risks of variance in its yields and ensure the creation of consistently high-quality products.

This technique, which the company calls the ABcann Advantage, has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with ABcann's current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry. This global growth potential is illustrated by ABcann's partnership with Israel's Syqe Medical, producer of the world's first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting the company's production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that ABcann's production technologies put it "in a class with the best in the world" in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

ABcann's entry into the public sector is being guided by a seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board that feature well over a century of combined industry experience. Ken Clement, the company' founder and executive chairman, has been the key component and driving force behind ABcann's development since its inception. His vision of standardized production and dosage sets ABcann apart in the medical cannabis sector. Clement is joined on the company's management team by CEO Aaron Keay. Keay brings more than a decade of capital markets experience to ABcann, having played a role in raising approximately $250 million for public and private market issuers.

Notably, ABcann also has access to the 'Father of Cannabis Research', Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and he has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.

With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, ABcann is well-positioned to compete in the rapidly-expanding Canadian medicinal cannabis industry. These factors, along with the company's ongoing global expansion into the European, Australian and Israeli markets, show why ABcann Medicinals' upcoming public offering fits the bill as "Canada's Next Medical Marijuana IPO."

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF). Today, Choom Holdings Inc. closed trading at $0.58, up 5.45%, on 96,988 volume with 61 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 50,181, and its 52-week low/high is $0.1099/$0.8612.

Choom (CSE: CHOO; OTCQB: CHOOF) today announced the appointment of Chris Gagan as Senior Vice President of Marketing to lead its brand strategy and execution.  Reporting to Chief Executive Officer, Chris Bogart, Mr. Gagan will provide overall leadership and guidance to the marketing function and all its specialities, as well as provide insight into the overall corporate strategy.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) channels the laid-back spirit of Hawaii to the Okanagan region of British Columbia with a generous nod to the inspirational, yet unofficial, history of the 1970s "Choom Gang," a group of buddies in Honolulu (including former President Barack Obama) who knew how to relax with "choom," the local's term for marijuana. Choom's trademark slogans pivot off another unconventional phrase ("Say Hello to…"), bringing a heady dose of good times and good friends together as the company invites investors to "Say Hello to Choom™" as it lights up the adult recreational cannabis market in Canada.

Choom™ has been an ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicant since November 2013 in Vernon, B.C. The company's first application has received security clearance and is now in the detailed review stage. They also recently announced their second late-stage ACMPR application, which is in its confirmation of readiness stage. Cannabis Compliance Inc. has been retained to help expedite Choom's initial license applications to ensure the company's readiness for legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada mid-summer 2018.

True to the company's character, Choom™ is retrofitting two large facilities – No. 1 in Vernon, B.C., and No. 2 on Vancouver Island – to house its cannabis growing facilities. Phase 1 of the Vernon property will provide Choom™ with 6,800 square feet of growing space, capable of producing 660 kg/year of cannabis at an estimated revenue of $6.6 million, excluding oils. The company expects this facility to be completed by July 2018, the same month that Canada is expected to formally legalize recreational marijuana for adult use. A potential Phase 2, to be completed by the end of 2018, would add another 6,800 square feet for a total of 1,500 kg/year capacity, which would nearly double No. 1's revenue. A Level 9 vault is also planned with a storage capacity of 15,000 kg. While the No. 2 facility on Vancouver Island is smaller – 4,500 square feet – its retrofit is also slated to be completed by July 2018. Plans include doubling this space as well, which would add about $9 million in annual revenue, excluding cannabis oils.

Choom™ announced its retail dispensary strategy with the intention of establishing market leadership in reaching the Canadian cannabis consumer. The partner program is already in the retail space design stage as the company seeks to build a chain of branded retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where recreational cannabis is legal. Choom™ Stores will have a cool, modern layout and design created to emit an authentic "Aloha" vibe. Choom™ is all about producing high-grade cultivars and curating them for a bigger audience.

A savvy, experienced management team includes Chris Bogart, president and CEO; John Oh, R.P.I.C., Operations Manager; Robert Bayrack, Master Grower, S.P.I.C.; and Adrian Robinson, Strategic Advisor. Bogart has over two decades of international experience in capital markets and was a co-founder of InMed Pharmaceuticals and Magnum Uranium. He has structured complex equity financing transactions in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Bogart is joined on the Board of Directors by Kevin Pull, Stephen Tong and John Oh.

While the medical marijuana industry is expected to double by 2021 to 500,000 registered users, the true highlight of the recreational cannabis represents the key cultural shift set to launch in Canada. With an estimated $4.9B to $8.7B retail market coming, now is the right time for a Recreation Brand like Choom™ to be involved in this growing industry. Establishing and maintaining Choom™ premium brand loyalty is a key factor in the company's growth strategy. Get ready to "Say Hello" to opportunity, good times and good friends with Choom™.

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX). Today, ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. closed trading at $0.66, up 0.46%, on 28,245 volume with 33 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 203,080 and its 52-week low/high is $0.40/$1.83.

Market analysis company ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) this morning released details of the stock dividends related to the company’s anticipated spinoff of its hemp-related assets including its China-based wholly owned foreign enterprise, CBD Biotechnology Co. Ltd. and its wholly owned United States subsidiaries, ChineseHempOil.com, Inc. and Hemp Logic, Inc.

Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.

Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.

CIIX is also leveraging its financial expertise to enter into the burgeoning CBD industry, which within a few years has grown from a relatively invisible sector to a billowing market expected to reach $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020.

The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.

Under a wholesale agreement with a reputable CBD health brand, CIIX is launching the world's first online CBD health products store published in the Chinese language. The site, www.ChineseCBDoil.com, caters to a growing number of Chinese people awakening to the numerous health benefits of CBD oil for treatment of a variety of conditions such as anxiety, stress, poor sleep, Alzheimer's disease, and more. CIIX expects to launch this website at the end of January 2017, and plans to sell CBD-infused products via online and in-store.

In conjunction, CIIX's cannabis-focused "Yelp"-style mobile app is in development as a platform for Chinese people to review and discuss various cannabis products. The app will be the first marijuana social media mobile app designed for Chinese-speaking customers worldwide. Disclaimer

Skinvisible, Inc. (SKVI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Skinvisible, Inc. (SKVI). Today, Skinvisible, Inc. closed trading at $0.0214, up 0.94%, on 70,000 volume with 11 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 216,183 and its 52-week low/high is $0.02/$0.33.

An outbreak of the deadly influenza A (H3N2) virus has devastated families across the United States this winter. Traditionally, the elderly and the very young are most vulnerable to the flu, but, this time around, it is attacking people of all ages. This outbreak follows on the heels of the potent H7N9 avian influenza virus, which has the potential to spread globally, although largely confined to China at present. Hand hygiene is vital to reduce the risk of contracting these flu strains. Skinvisible, Inc. (OTCQB: SKVI) has developed a unique hand sanitizer, DermSafe®, which offers long-term protection against harmful microbes.

Skinvisible, Inc. (SKVI) through its wholly owned subsidiary Skinvisible Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is a Research and Development company whose patented Invisicare® technology can be used to revitalize or create new medical or skincare products, allowing a company that licenses Skinvisible's formulations to sell their own patented product and combat generic competitors.

A prescription dermatology product can generate $100 million or more a year, with the potential to lose 50-90% of that revenue when it goes off patent. Preserving that revenue is why the licensing of a product made with Invisicare is a very desirable option for many companies. The Company has developed a pipeline of 40 products using Invisicare, with a primary focus on optimizing the performance and increasing the value of "gold standard" dermatology drugs and licensing them to international and multi-national companies in the pharmaceutical, over-the-counter and cosmeceutical markets.

Invisicare® is a high performance topical and transdermal delivery system which enhances the delivery of drugs and other ingredients to and through the skin. The key to Skinvisible's patented technology and trademarked Invisicare® family of polymer delivery vehicles is its formula and process for combining hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers into stable complexes in water emulsions. Invisicare® can be a key component of life cycle management, extending the life with a new patent-protected product, dramatically expanding the company's revenue stream.

Independent studies of Invisicare® have shown the following benefits:

  • Active ingredients stay on the skin for up to four hours or more and resist wash off and rub off.
  • Delivery method results in improved efficacy, reduced skin irritation and lower required dosage.
  • Unique formulations are non-drying and provide the ability to control the release of active ingredients.
  • Products form a protective barrier, which means normal skin respiration and perspiration occur and the product wears off as part of the skin's natural exfoliation process.

Terry Howlett, President, founder and CEO of Skinvisible Inc., said the Company has more than 15 years of scientific research and product development experience. All development is conducted using stringent pharmaceutical standards. The Company has licensed a number of its formulations including a prescription hemorrhoid cream in the USA, its anti-aging Kintari® line of products and DermSafe®, its non-alcohol hand sanitizer to a licensee in China. Producing licensed products for the booming cannabis industry is also an important element of the company's business strategy.

Skinvisible's foray into the rapidly expanding market for medicinal and recreational cannabis products is already underway with the development of the company's first hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) products. Skinvisible has negotiated an exclusive licensing deal in Canada with Canopy Growth Corporation, one of the world's leading cannabis companies. As part of the company's overall growth strategy, Skinvisible is also negotiating with a Licensed Producer in Las Vegas where Skinvisible scientists will develop THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) products for the legal recreational and medical marijuana market for the USA. Notably, Skinvisible is actively pursuing potential licensees through-out the world where medical cannabis is legal. These licensees will have the exclusive right to manufacture and distribute Skinvisible's cannabis products within their territory.

"We are excited about the results we are already seeing just with our hemp-derived CBD products," Howlett says. "Our science shows that our CBD products release almost four times that of market leaders and our transdermal product had an 81% penetration rate at 6 hours. These results are significant and provide the difference between ordinary cannabis products and ones enhanced by Invisicare."

The Company's business model includes out-licensing its formulations for a development fee, license fee and on-going royalties in addition to selling its Invisicare polymers to its licensees. Disclaimer

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE:LXX) (OTCQB:LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP). Today, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. closed trading at $1.37, up 0.74%, on 171,446 volume with 343 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 488,100 and its 52-week low/high is $0.27/$2.54.

NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for business, today announces the audio version of Lexaria Bioscience Corp.’s (CSE:LXX) (OTCQX:LXRP) recent press release: “Lexaria Bioscience Corp. Enters Global Licensing Agreement with Neutrisci International Inc. (TSX-V:NU) (OTCQB:NRXCF).” To hear the Lexaria Bioscience Corp. AudioPressRelease (APR) version, visit: http://nnw.fm/IgDv2. To read the original press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/4LfAe.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body's gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria's products and others on the market is the company's disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the "unusual" taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company's technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria's processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government's National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria's unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience's business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company's patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria's lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world's most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria's revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company's growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets. Disclaimer

Veritas Pharma's management and R&D team comprises decades of pharmaceutical, clinical and scientific research expertise into several key industry leaders. Lui Franciosi, PhD, who has over 20 years of experience conducting pharmaceutical and medical device studies in academia and industry, leads the company as its CEO. In addition to a team of trained technicians and students working out of academic facilities, Veritas Pharma is pleased to have a renowned group of scientists on board to lead its research efforts.
