$NUGS $SNNVF PureOrganix Now in Dispensaries in California

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2018 — via NetworkWire — Pure Applied Sciences, a wholly own subsidiary of Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS), has announced that “PureOrganix™,” their brand of high-quality concentrate, organic and pure cannabis oils that conform with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), is now available in dispensaries in California. Furthermore, PureOrganix™ plans to expand its national and international shelf-presence in states with legal markets and Canada in the next year.

“Having our brand available to consumers is a huge milestone for PureOrganix™; we have spent months refining our formulation, branding and designing our product to appeal to our target demographic.  We are excited for PureOrganix™ continued expansion into legal cannabis retail stores and believe this growth highlights the growth of the cannabis industry. Equally important, this confirms our belief that as the cannabis industry expands into the mainstream, consumer demand for high-quality and pure products continues to increase. PureOrganix™ stands for quality and we look forward to increasing our shelf presence in dispensaries throughout the United States and internationally, in Canadian markets,” said Simon Yu, CEO, Cannabis Strategic Ventures. “The PureOrganix™ growth affirms Cannabis Strategic Ventures belief that there is incredible opportunity to create unique cannabis consumer branded products and expand into other sub-sectors of the cannabis marketplace.”

Cannabis Strategic Ventures acquired Pure Applied Sciences and its brand PureOrganix™ in February 2018. In July 2018, Pure Applied Sciences entered a non-exclusive cannabis concentrate extraction services agreement with CP Logistics LLC (“CPL”), a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of Sunniva Inc. (CSE:SNN) (OTCQX:SNNVF). Under the agreement, CPL performs white label services producing high quality, ultra-purified cannabis extracts out of its Sun-Oil Facility in Cathedral City, California, for Pure Applied Sciences under the PureOrganix™ brand name. Under this model, Pure Applied Sciences exclusively develops brand, marketing and licensing opportunities for distribution to legal retail stores.

A September 2018 market report by Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics has estimated that Americans will spend $2.9 billion on concentrates this year, 49% more than last year. In 2014, concentrates only accounted for 10% of all cannabis sales, but that number is expected to climb to 27% this year.

“Concentrates are already revolutionizing the way cannabis is being consumed. The PureOrganix™ brand has already captured a strong following and praise for the products and is poised for tremendous growth as their products become more available in cannabis retail environments,” added Yu.

About Cannabis Strategic Ventures
Cannabis Strategic Ventures is a Los Angeles based firm that incubates, develops and partners with category leaders within the cannabis sector. The Firm’s NUGS brand experience provides mentorship and a range of essential services to emerging and existing Cannabis consumer brands. The Company recently completed a name and symbol change from Cascade Energy, Inc. Cannabis Strategic Ventures is publicly traded on the U.S. Over the Counter Market with the stock symbol NUGS.

$DPW Latest Spike in Development of Digital Asset Mining Facilities for Cryptomining Operations

Palm Beach, FL – (October 18, 2018) – Cryptomining remains a lucrative arm of the overall cryptocurrency marketplace as leaders in the industry aim to capture value through advanced mining techniques and state of the art facilities. Operations have exploded overseas including in China, but now the United States has an amazing opportunity to step up and start taking part in creating mega facilities, or data centers with high computational power for mining that supports the transactions on the blockchain.  Through the expansion of data and mining facilities, mining companies are leveraging advanced technology in order to increase the efficiency of digital asset extraction. Various research reports forecast that cryptomining will push cryptocurrency prices even higher in 2019, as the overall market cap of all cryptocurrencies surpassed $700 billion earlier this year according to Coin Market Cap. Due to this, the mining economy is only expected to continue growing at a steady rate throughout the next few years.  Active tech companies in the markets this week include Mining Power Group, Inc. (OTC:RCGR), Seven Stars Cloud Group Inc. (NASDAQ:SSC), Xunlei Limited (NASDAQ:XNET), DPW Holdings Inc. (NYSE:DPW), Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET) (OTC:GLNNF).

Mining Power Group, Inc. (OTCPK:RCGR) BREAKING NEWS:  Mining Power Group announced today that its majority-owned subsidiary, Northway Mining, LLC, (“Northway”) which offers highly specialized data center hosting services for cryptomining, has acquired an additional 66,000 square foot building, located at 2 Flint Mine Road, Coxsackie, New York, for use as a cryptomining data center.

The Company had previously announced that it had acquired a majority interest in Northway Mining, which included real estate assets of substantial value including 30 acres of flat surrounding land that can be used for future expansion of Northway’s data center facilities. Northway at that time had 5000 square feet of secure crypto mining space. This transaction provides additional square footage for the Company’s planned expansion.

Northway is a cryptocurrency mining hosting facility that provides hosting, electricity, cooling, maintenance, insurance, downtime coverage, OS installation (GPU) assistance, setup & security, and more, including especially low rates for electricity, that reduces client costs and is a major competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Dror Svorai President and CEO, stated, “This additional 66,000 square foot facility also has 15 Megawatts of power on site, expandable to 100 Megawatts, and, with a power station literally next door, we now have a 1000 Megawatt capability. This purchase represents over a $1Million investment, long term, in the facility given that $950,000 was paid for the building which will now have over $50,000 additional invested in it in improvements to facilitate the data center operations. This acquisition will allow us to quickly accommodate a substantial number of additional clients, generating more revenues for the Company.”    Read this and more news for Mining Power Group at http://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-rcgr

$PBIO New HUB880 Explorer Enables Researchers to Reach Higher Pressure Levels

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO) recently unveiled the HUB880 Explorer, a high-pressure based system that will empower public health, microbiology, food science, agriculture and other research scientists to study the manner in which pressure can kill food pathogens. A recent article discussing the company reads, “Through the use of the new HUB880 Explorer, researchers will become capable of reaching higher pressure levels and working with larger sample sizes. This way, the manner in which pathogens contribute to spoilage and safety hazards will be studied more thoroughly. Because of this enhancement, the HUB880 Explorer could potentially lead to higher revenue levels in the foreseeable future, Dr. Lawrence noted. … Pressure BioSciences President and CEO Richard T. Schumacher said that the company is concentrating its efforts in two fields – pressure-based research instruments for use in scientific research settings and the Ultra Shear Technology, which is a scalable food processing method. The aim of UST is to address the limitations of using standard high-pressure processing and other food processing technologies in the quest to develop a scalable, enabling food processing method that can result in safer, great tasting, longer shelf-life, clean label (no chemical additives) food.”

Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) has taken a significant step in adapting its payment processing technology to the specific challenges of the tourism and hospitality industry through its recently announced partnership with VIP Systems, an advanced technology integrator already working in the hospitality industry space (http://nnw.fm/R48hV).

“VIP Systems is a leading technology integrator with vast experience deploying complex point of sale solutions for some of the biggest brands in the travel and hospitality industry; adding payments to its offerings will create new revenues for VIP Systems and enable us to create more guest-centric value-added offerings,” Vlad Sadovskiy, Net Element’s president of integrated payments, stated in the announcement of the venture.

“This partnership brings together technology and value-added offerings that are set to streamline processes and create additional revenue for our clients at the point of sale,” VIP Systems Executive Vice President Edward Genin added. “Since inception, VIP Systems has been committed to providing its clients with the best quality integration services. The partnership with Net Element is another example of our commitment to this mission.”

VIP Systems is a preferred provider of tech solutions for well-known brands such as Marriott International, Choice Hotels International, Simon Property Group, Hotwire Communications, Morgans Hotel Group, InterContinental Hotels Group and Related Group.

Net Element operates a payments-as-a-service transactional model and a platform for value-added services that benefit small- to medium-sized businesses in the United States and select emerging markets. Internationally, the company’s strategy is to leverage its omni-channel platform to provide flexibility where diverse banking, regulatory and demographic conditions exist.

The partnership’s product is named the VIP Payments solution, designed as tech that works seamlessly with computerized Property Management Systems (PMS) utilized by businesses, particularly hotels, to govern property, personnel and legal operations through a single software system. It manages online and mobile payments compatibly with leading global distribution systems (GDS) utilized by travel industry service providers to manage real-time vacancies in rooms, etc., including the Amadeus and Sabre brands.

$RIV.V 420 with CNW – $FB Lifts Ban on Weed Searches Ahead of Canadian Legalization

While the U.S. customs authorities may be unsure about how to respond once recreational marijuana becomes legal in Canada, social media giant Facebook has taken the step to stop preventing search results from showing in case a user is looking for cannabis pages, articles and organizations, among other kinds of related content.

Facebook has been filtering out any search results connected to cannabis for more than a year. This action was in line with the platform’s rules that barred illegal products and substances from being traded or trafficked using the platform.

That is now bound to change as Facebook users from around the globe will now be able to access marijuana-related content using the search feature of the platform.

However, there will be a condition to accessing cannabis information. Only verified pages, personalities and organizations will be listed in the search results.

Facebook currently has two signs of verification, a blue and grey verification mark. The blue mark is reserved for brands, media companies and public figures. Other verified cannabis accounts or pages will have the grey verification mark.

The verification process starts with the marijuana business giving Facebook a phone number which is listed publicly. The social media platform then makes an automated call to that number and the receiver is expected to enter a 4-digit code once he or she is prompted to do so during the phone call.

Previously, government marijuana dispensaries, advocacy agencies and other organizations could not be found on Facebook due to the restrictions designed into the search algorithm of the social media platform.

The changes in the laws of different countries and states has motivated the change of heart at Facebook in order to enable Facebook users to access marijuana content without any undue limitations.

It is worth remembering at this point that marijuana video content could be accessed even when the restrictions on cannabis were in force. The algorithm changes being rolled out will have no effect on access to such video content.

The move by Facebook has been welcomed by cannabis advocacy groups, such as Marijuana Policy Project, who said that it was long overdue for the social media platform to change how it regards marijuana.

Many polls show that the public wants marijuana to be decriminalized, and many jurisdictions have passed laws permitting marijuana use for either medical or recreational purposes. Facebook and other platforms should therefore start looking at marijuana favorably since it is now legal in many countries or jurisdictions. Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) and Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX.V: RIV) must be pleased by the change made by Facebook.
