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

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ABcann Global (ABCCF). Today, ABcann Global closed trading at $0.903, up 1.69%, on 384,775 volume with 334 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 302,722 and its 52-week low/high is $0.6171/$1.25.

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: The Canadian government’s commitment to legalize recreational cannabis in July 2018 is touted as an opportunity for investors to profit from the ongoing green blitz. Gearing up for the anticipated spike in consumer demand, cannabis-related businesses are lining up steady sources of supply from the country’s licensed producers (LPs). The alcohol and tobacco industries are also preparing to get their hands on the plush opportunities of legalized recreational cannabis. One of Canada’s earliest licensed cannabis producers, ABcann Global Corp. (OTCQB: ABCCF) (TSX.V: ABCN) (ABCCF Profile), is well-positioned to capitalize on the market’s expansion with its computer-controlled growing platform that helps it produce more than 250 grams of cannabis per square foot each year, placing it among the highest yields within the Canadian sector.

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."

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF). Today, First Cobalt Corp. closed trading at $0.576, up 1.53%, on 76,113 volume with 54 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 68,972, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3148/$0.67.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF) is pleased to announce Cobalt One Ltd. (ASX:CO1) shareholders have approved the merger with First Cobalt, with 99.995% of votes cast in favor. Trent Mell, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are one step closer to creating the largest pure play cobalt company in the world. We look forward to seeing First Cobalt shares trade on the ASX, as this dual listing will bring a much larger shareholder base and added liquidity."

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF), 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.

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.

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.

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.

At the center of this initiative is the ChineseInvestors Method, a unique integration of a disciplined investing process, web-based tools, personalized instructions and support. Using this strategy, CIIX provides reliable market information to help investors make informed investment decisions and meet their individualized financial goals.

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 $0.056, up 11.33%, on 121,458 volume with 16 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 153,229 and its 52-week low/high is $0.003/$0.33.

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

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF). Today, Algae Dynamics Corp. closed trading at $0.10, up 11.11%, on 5,000 volume with 1 trade. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 7,942 and its 52-week low/high is $0.0001/$0.62.

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF) is focused on developing proprietary research and products involving botanical oils derived from cannabis and algae.

The original core of the company's product development strategy was the extraction of Omega-3 fatty acids from certain strains of algae with high concentrations of DHA to create various nutraceutical products. As a result of the many demonstrated health benefits of other botanical oils, most notably cannabis oil, Algae Dynamics developed a strategy aimed at developing products that combined the health benefits of algae and cannabis oils. Capitalizing on the burgeoning demand for cannabis oil and other smoke-free alternatives to marijuana consumption will help support ongoing initiatives to create and market research-driven product formulations.

Although the company is publicly traded in the U.S., business is conducted in Canada with no exposure to U.S. federal regulation involving cannabis. The Canadian cannabis oil extraction marketplace is projected to grow from C$1 million in 2015 to C$1.7 billion in 2020, which is more than a 1,000-fold increase. With the Government of Canada indicating a target date for full legalization on or before July 2018, numerous opportunities for sales in extracts and oils will open up very soon.

Using Colorado as a comparable example, a study performed by Mackie Research Capital found that 45% of dried marijuana users in the state would eventually convert to marijuana extracts and oils. This is because most consumers taking cannabis for medical purposes are increasingly looking for delivery systems that do not involve smoking marijuana. The market's attractiveness can be further realized when considering that the Canada's licensed producer marketplace is far less competitive with 45 current licensed producers for the whole country vs. 624 licensed cultivators in Colorado.

Collaborating with prominent Canadian universities is a core part of the Algae Dynamics' plan to bolster cannabis extraction expertise, develop premium products and add to its portfolio of intellectual property. Through its agreements with the University of Waterloo and the University of Western Ontario, the company is focusing primarily on the use of extracts from cannabis oil and algae oil in the context of cancer as well as the development of new pharmacotherapies for mental health.

Near-term goals include expanding research and development work with existing and new Canadian universities, securing supply/service agreements with licensed producers, and submitting an application to Health Canada to become a licensed producer of medical marijuana and ultimately have a license to sell products derived from cannabinoids. Algae Dynamics also owns a proprietary technology for the cultivation of low cost, highly pure algae biomass, which will be developed as a vertical integration strategy in the future to support the need to source algae oil for research-driven product formulations. The management team leading these initiatives has nearly a century of beneficial experience spanning from management and process experience to successful fund raising and commercialization.

As part of its key objective to be the #1 research Canadian cannabis oil research-driven product formulator, the company has also formed a strong team of scientific and strategic advisors that complement ongoing R&D relationships and initiatives. Individuals who support the company's initiatives include Dr. Jonathan Blay PhD, FRSB, FIBMS, Csci, CBiol, who performs research and product development on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of colorectum, pancreas, breast and prostate cancers; and Dr. Steven Laviolette, BSc, PhD, who performs research and product development on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia.

With such a strong foundation laid in the areas being pursued, Algae Dynamics is well positioned to execute on its carefully developed business plan to fast-track to revenue growth while having a longer-term strategy to build a sustainable enterprise-building opportunity in a rapidly expanding market.

RJD Green Inc. (RJDG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight RJD Green Inc. (RJDG). Today, RJD Green Inc. closed trading at $0.0082, up 9.33%, on 85,000 volume with 4 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 1,796,219, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0031/$0.029.

RJD Green Inc. (RJDG) is a holding company with a focus on acquiring and managing assets and companies in three divisions. These initial high-growth enterprise opportunities offer diversity in separate recession resistant markets. The division holdings include:

  • RJD Green Healthcare Services – provides services to reduce cost and enhance management and operational capabilities in the healthcare sector.
  • Earthlinc Environmental Services – provides green environmental services and technologies.
  • Silex Holdings – acquires specialty construction and industrial manufacturing assets.

RJD Green Healthcare Services, through its wholly owned subsidiary IOSOFT Inc., provides proprietary software and IT support for medical billing, healthcare claims adjudication, and electronic payments between healthcare payers and providers.

IOSOFT provides targeted offerings for healthcare providers, provider networks, physicians and hospitals, and clearinghouse companies.

Earthlinc Environmental Solutions was formed to bring forward green-applied technologies and offer environmental services with a focus on North America. The division's first acquisition, Animal Waste Management, is launching operations of a patented, fully developed technology for processing waste produced on commercial poultry and hog farms. Development of this technology was supported by the University of Arkansas and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. This important technology improves the farm's productivity and is competitively priced with the current expense of handling waste removal at these sites.

The company's third division – Silex Holdings Inc. – was formed to acquire and manage high-growth assets and business enterprises in the industrial and construction specialty services sectors. With its first acquisition of Silex Interiors, a manufacturer, distributor and installer of counter tops, cabinets and related kitchen and bath products, the division is poised to expand into major national markets through internal expansion, acquisition and franchising. The company is modeled to operate a minimum of four corporately owned locations with 12 to 18 franchise locations nationwide.

RJD Green seeks to participate as owners, partners or in joint ventures in a wide range of business enterprises. The company's goal of creating a successful, enjoyable business enterprise for its company team and staff, along with its business partners and investors, is paired with the goal of maximizing the business potential of the enterprise by enhancing profits and the quality of the company.
