The Company formerly went by the name SmooFi, Inc. It changed its corporate name to NuLife Sciences, Inc. in December 2016. NuLife Sciences is headquartered in Newport Beach, California. The Company operates through two wholly-owned subsidiaries, NuLife Medical and NuLife BioMed.

NuLife Sciences is focusing on an inventive, patented, proprietary method, the above-mentioned 'NuLife Technique’. The Company said that this technique could potentially eliminate the need for an organ or tissue match and the necessity for anti-rejection drugs in human organ transplant. With the Discovery phase completed, the Company’s intention is to enter a Preclinical phase involving animal experiments in collaboration with Florida International University and Nova Southeastern University.

The NuLife Technique was developed through 15 years of dedicated research. The result has been numerous breakthroughs in hematopoietic research and transplant techniques. The objective of the research was to address the issues of organ compatibility and the need for anti-rejection drugs in the donor

NuLife’s technique is versatile. Additionally, it is suitable for an array of clinical indications. NuLife Sciences has extensive patent and Intellectual Property (IP) protections in place.

The aim of the study is to prove that the NuLife Technique is viable.

NuLife Sciences, through NuLife Medical, announced in September plans to commercialize its lead compound, lyophilized Cytokine Concentrated Plasma (lyoCCP) in Ecuador.

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 $0.77, up 29.19%, on 568,191 volume with 266 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 64,763, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3148/$0.67.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V:FCC) (OTCQB:FTSSF) is pleased to announce shareholders of CobalTech Mining Inc. (TSX-V:CSK) have approved the merger with First Cobalt, with 95% of votes cast in favour. Trent Mell, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We now have approval from CobalTech and Cobalt One shareholders to finalize the three-way merger and we look forward to closing both transaction over the next 2 weeks. First Cobalt now controls approximately 45% of the prospective land in the Cobalt Camp. This historic mining camp has never seen the required land consolidation to permit district-scale exploration and we will remain very active in 2018.”

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.

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

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ABcann Global (ABCCF). Today, ABcann Global closed trading at $1.13, up 20.34%, on 1,511,063 volume with 1,047 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 310,602 and its 52-week low/high is $0.6171/$1.25.

NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring ABcann Global (TSX.V:ABCN) (OTCQB:ABCCF), a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis and one of the earliest licensed Canadian medical marijuana producers. The publication, titled, "Outsized Demand in Canada's Cannabis Market Triggers Upswing in Smart Money Flowing North," highlights the surge of investment capital to Canada's licensed producers (LPs) ahead of the country's pending legalization of recreational marijuana. To view the full publication, visit: https://www.networknewswire.com/outsized-demand-canadas-cannabis-market-triggers-upswing-smart-money-flowing-north/

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."

Veritas Pharma, Inc. (CSE:VRT) (OTC:VRTHF) (FRT:2VP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Veritas Pharma, Inc. (VRTHF). Today, Veritas Pharma, Inc. closed trading at $0.398, off by 1.49%, on 34,218 volume with 21 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 35,355 and its 52-week low/high is $0.171/$0.48.

Veritas Pharma Inc. (CSE:VRT) (OTC:VRTHF) (FRT:2VP) announces that the scientists of its research arm, Cannevert Therapeutics Ltd. ("CTL") will be presenting their first peer-reviewed research of its cannabis strains targeting pain at the British Pharmacological Meeting (BPS) in London, UK from December 11-13, 2017.

Veritas Pharma, Inc. (CSE: VRT) (OTCQB: VRTHF) is an emerging pharmaceutical and IP development company publicly traded in Canada, the United States and Germany. Through its recently acquired 80 percent stake in Cannevert Therapeutics Ltd., also known as Veritas' R&D arm, the company is clinically profiling various marijuana cultivars to pharmacologically connect unique strains with specific disease conditions. Veritas Pharma's goal is to perform clinical trials to prove the efficacy of the designated lead cannabis strains and to market the clinically effective cultivars as prescription medicines in a fast-track protocol.

ORHub, Inc. (ORHB)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ORHub, Inc. (ORHB). Today, ORHub, Inc. closed trading at $0.42, off by 10.64%, on 73,955 volume with 14 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 35,655 and its 52-week low/high is $0.20/$2.09.

ORHub, Inc. (OTC: ORHB), today provides a business update and announces a special warrant exercise price of $0.35 per warrant for all Series. Recent Corporate Highlights:

  • Signed a 5-year revenue agreement (http://nnw.fm/t97Fx) with a three-hospital system in Southern California, recognized as one of the "100 Great Hospitals in America" by Becker's Hospital Review.
  • Entered into an agreement with a US News & World Report Top 20 Medical School for a fully paid installation.
  • Secured the commitment of three additional hospitals; implementation details and dates forthcoming in a future press release.
  • Expanded our channels for revenue to include medical technology companies, as well as plans for product offerings to payors, pharmaceutical companies and government agencies.

ORHub, Inc. (ORHB) is a cloud-based software platform designed to transform the business of surgery into a value-based model. The platform empowers care providers at every stage of the surgical process to collaborate, organize, deliver, measure, and reimburse in one intuitive, easy-to-use program. This significantly decreases cost and improves outcomes by eliminating inefficiencies, duplications of effort, and errors and omissions that result from siloed processes in outdated software and poor handoffs from one part of the care process to another.

The need for ORHub is clear. Health care costs are out of control at more than 17% of US GDP, which equates to over $3 trillion per year. With costs rising every year due to an aging population and increasingly expensive treatments, providers are under severe pressure to become more efficient and reduce costs. This is happening because payors are aggressively reducing reimbursements and finally moving away from fee-for-service and toward a performance-based reimbursement system referred to as value-based health care.

Accurately measuring the cost of treating a condition and relating that cost to the patient's outcome is at the heart of value-based health care. Institutions that have adopted this model have reaped savings of 20-40% on their overall cost of care. Unfortunately, today's siloed IT systems are fundamentally at odds with this process. Legacy health care solutions come from a fee-for-service world and have reinforced the problem and produced a system with erratic quality and unsustainable costs. Most health care applications today are incremental improvements on these existing systems or are simple digital implementations of antiquated pen-and-paper processes.

Providers wanting to practice value-based health care need value-based software. ORHub creates a value-based solution that will revolutionize surgical care delivery by tracking the cost of treating a condition from diagnosis to discharge, and tracking outcomes that resulted from that treatment.

In an industry where major IT rollouts traditionally cost millions of dollars and take an average of eighteen months, pilot installations of ORHub have been completed in less than a month. By avoiding integration with legacy systems completely through a radically comprehensive and collaborative approach, providers see results right away. This approach produces real-time metrics in a uniform manner at any institution, which makes it ideal for large providers looking to make improvements across the board at multiple facilities.

ORHub started as a pilot program developed in cooperation with a major Southern California hospital. It has since expanded operations into a second facility at the number two non-profit hospital system in the US. Three additional pilot programs are scheduled prior to a national launch. The company has raised more than $1.6 million as of January 2017.

The company is also a showcase member of the startup program at Microsoft, which has been a key partner by providing financial assistance, strategy, introductions to influencers and mentors, and access to its sales organization who see ORHub as an exciting partner to expand the utilization of Microsoft Surface devices and Azure Cloud. Microsoft is funding a major case study in partnership with Intel about the impact of ORHub on participating institutions to be concluded sometime in Q2 2017.

ORHub's leadership team is helmed by Colt Melby, who was appointed CEO in 2016 and has been crucial to developing and executing the company's business strategy. Mr. Melby's extensive business experience includes the NASDAQ uplisting of Smith and Wesson (now American Outdoor Brands), CUI Global Inc., and Quest Resource Holdings Corp. His wealth of information and relationships have been vital in helping the company go from concept to production in institutional medicine in less than a year.

Delivering surgical care to a single patient is a complex process that may take half a dozen companies and more than a dozen departments cooperating inside and outside the care facility. ORHub simplifies and streamlines this process by enabling vendors, providers, and surgeons to collaborate on providing care. Disclaimer

HighCom Global Security, Inc. (HCGS)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight HighCom Global Security, Inc. (HCGS). Today, HighCom Global Security, Inc. closed trading at $0.02, up 23.46%, on 51,842 volume with 9 trade. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 58,566 and its 52-week low/high is $0.006/$0.10.

HighCom Global Security, Inc. (HCGS) is a manufacturer and distributor of protective products for military and law enforcement personnel. The Corporation operates under two segments, BlastGard Defense Group and Highcom Security.

BlastGard is a blast mitigation specialist with proprietary material proven to effectively mitigate blasts and suppress fires resulting from explosions. The company's patented BlastWrap® technology acts as a "virtual tent" to effectively mitigate blast effects and suppress post-blast fires. This unique technology works by triggering physical and chemical processes to dissipate blast energy, thereby reducing the aftermath of acoustic and shock waves, peak overpressure, reflected peak overpressure, impulse and afterburn. The remaining, significantly reduced energy is transmitted at a slower, more sustainable level. Notably, BlastWrap does not dispense chemical extinguishants; uses neither alarms, sensors, nor an activation system; and is nontoxic and ecologically friendly.

Similarly, the company's BlastGard MTR trash receptacles dramatically reduce lethal threats posed by the detonation of an improvised explosive device (IED). Equipped with Triple Wall Technology, BlastGard MTR mitigates primary fragments, secondary fragments, mechanical effects (shock/blast pressure) and thermal effects (contact and radiation burn) from the fireball, after-burn and resultant post-blast fires.

BlastGard's primary market focus lies on providing blast effects mitigation solutions for customers operating in the commercial sector, military, law enforcement and government agencies. With a vision of being recognized as the leading provider of environmentally responsible solutions to protect lives and structures from the hazards associated with fire and explosions, the company is capable of addressing a wide array of industry applications spanning from fire suppression for naval vessels and merchant ships to protection of buildings against vehicle bombs.

This vision is supported by the ban of Halon extinguishing agents, as outlined in the Montreal protocol, which effectively establishes BlastWrap® as the only blast and fire suppression means available for most applications, including adaptation for underwater use.

The company's position at the head of the blast suppression market has helped BlastGard attain a number of government awards, including designation of its BlastWrap® product as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology and placement on the "Approved Products List for Homeland Security." This designation was extended in early 2017, meaning that BlastWrap® is approved for use by the Department of Homeland Security under the SAFETY Act until November 2021.

HighCom Security, develops, tests, manufactures and distributes body armor and personal protective equipment, including more than two dozen NIJ (National Institute of Justice) compliant hard and soft armor products. Highcom Security has a 20-year history of producing quality armor with no operational failures and no recalls of its American made products.

Highcom Security was founded in 1997 and has produced close to 1 million pieces of armor for the Global community. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified and the first company in the world to be BA 9000:2012 certified compliant.

For the past decade, Highcom Security has also been able to offer some of the largest armor manufacturers with private label/OEM hard armor solutions for end use by military and law enforcement agencies globally, a market reach obtained because of the company's reputation for innovative technology, exceptional customer service and superior quality performance.

Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (TSX.V: MOON) (OTC: BMOOF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (BMOOF). Today, Blue Moon Zinc Corp. closed trading at $0.0301, even for the day. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 37,286 and its 52-week low/high is $0.008/$0.087.

Blue Moon Zinc Corp. (TSX.V: MOON) (OTC: BMOOF), a mineral exploration company, is focused on developing its advanced-stage, wholly owned Blue Moon zinc project in central California. The project sits within Mariposa County, an area of active mines and exploration projects since it was part of the California gold rush era. Blue Moon's 525 acres of mineral rights are assigned to patented and unpatented claims accessible by a gravel road off a nearby highway with main utility lines nearby.

The Blue Moon deposit is one of many located in the Foothills Massive Sulphide Belt in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. The property has a long history of exploration and saw small-scale mining during World War II. The current project, to be mined by underground methods, contains an estimated 3.70 million tons with a grade of 8.33% zinc equivalent for approximately 377 million pounds of zinc in the indicated category and another 4.09 million tons with a grade of 7.84% zinc equivalence for approximately 395 pounds of zinc in the inferred category. Significant bi-products of copper, silver and gold are also indicated. The deposit is open at depth and along strike with a high likelihood of expansion.

Current spot prices for zinc is approximately $1.40 per pound, which increases the potential returns of the Blue Moon project.

The historical database shows extensive plans to put the Blue Moon project into production, including several scoping and optimization studies. Past environmental work performed, along with an historical permit and reclamation plan approved for certain underground development, highlights past local county support for the project. These historical studies and permits are expected to help fast track the project's progress as they form an excellent base for the upcoming Preliminary Economic Assessment and later feasibility study.

Among the significant historical studies conducted is a 1998 metallurgical report that shows recovery rates of 95 percent for zinc and lead, 93 percent for copper, 65 percent for silver and 70 percent for gold (http://nnw.fm/U1ckE). The report indicates that simple processing methods will produce premium concentrates with easy separation of the economic minerals.

Blue Moon CEO Patrick McGrath, who has 20 years of experience in financing and executive roles in the junior mining public sector, is joined by a management team with successful track records in leading and participating in significant mineral discoveries with development-stage mining companies. The Blue Moon team also includes a member who permitted and built the Soledad mine in southern California in 2016 and a member who re-started the Mesquite mine in southern California. Local knowledge and know-how is key. The company also plans to engage a recognized third-party engineering firm to prepare a preliminary economic assessment report, expected for release in the first quarter of 2018, to demonstrate the economic viability of the Blue Moon mineral resources.
