$LXRP DehydraTECH Continues to Demonstrate Effectiveness in Lab Testing

Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) patented drug-delivery platform, DehydraTECH, has exhibited continued success in recent animal lab tests by delivering cannabinoids to the bloodstream faster than conventional cannabinoid formulations (http://nnw.fm/fsKW4). A recent article discussing the company reads, “Lab tests and actual licensed use in the cannabis industry have proved that DehydraTECH’s long-chain fatty acid (“LCFA”) formulation is able to deliver cannabinoids faster than formulations with medium-chain triglyceride (“MCT”) oils, such as coconut oil. DehydraTECH also offers the most advanced flavor and aroma-profile masking techniques in the industry. The groundbreaking technology could negate the need for artificial chemical masking agents or flavoring agents/sweeteners that mask the bitter flavors and aromas of cannabis. . . . Over the entire 60 minutes of the study, the DehydraTECH LCFA formulation delivered a CBD blood concentration level that was 334 percent higher than the level identified in animals that received the MCT oil formulation. The lab tests on animals compared how quickly a DehydraTECH formulation containing LCFA could deliver cannabinoids to the bloodstream, as compared to a concentration-matched conventional industry cannabinoid edible formulation with MCT oil. Coconut oil is commonly used due to its luxurious taste and mouth-feel, which can hide unpleasant cannabis flavors.”

$TCAN Featured in CannabisNewsAudio Broadcast, Evolution of Cannabis Industry

NEW YORK, June 21, 2019 — via CannabisNewsAudio — TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN) (XETR:TH8) announces the availability of an audio press release titled, “Acquisitions Reveal the Steadily Changing Shape of the Cannabis Sector.”

To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/T0d0X.

To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/G8nPH.

The growth of the legal cannabis industry started with a scattershot approach. TransCanna is just one of many companies that have grown into the market from relatively small beginnings. Some began with entrepreneurs seeing a new industry within which to operate. Others were experienced cannabis cultivators moving from the illegal to the legal market. Still others were pharmaceutical companies dipping their toes into a new medicine and, from there, into the recreational industry.

The contrasting approaches of small innovative companies and larger efficient ones together create excellent value. That’s the point the cannabis industry is now approaching and that TranCanna’s acquisitions are a part of.

About TransCanna Holdings Inc.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. is a Canadian-based company focused on providing integrated branding, transportation and distribution services, through its wholly owned California subsidiaries, to a range of industries including the cannabis marketplace.

$INMB Developing Innovative Drug Candidates to Treat Cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease

INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB), a diversified clinical-stage immunology company focused on developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to combat disease, is currently developing drug candidates INKmune and INB03, which may be used to treat cancer, and XPro1595, which targets neuroinflammation as a cause of Alzheimer’s disease. An article further discussing the company reads, “XPro1595 targets the microglial immune cells of the brain that are activated in many Alzheimer’s disease patients. These microglial cells are a cause of neuroinflammation that can kill nerve cells and promote synaptic dysfunction — the cause of dementia in Alzheimer’s. A phase I clinical trial in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, supported by the Alzheimer’s Association grant, is expected to be initiated in the summer of 2019. . . . Upcoming catalysts for INmune Bio include advancements in several clinical trials featuring INB03 and INKmune — both of which are focused on ‘taking the brakes off’ the body’s innate immune system to become a powerful weapon in the fight against cancer. INB03 is a checkpoint inhibitor that targets cells resistant to immunotherapy to instead become therapeutically effective; INKmune primes a patient’s own natural killer cells to move from a resting state to an active state to attack and eliminate residual disease (lingering cancer cells) after cancer therapy.”

About INmune Bio Inc.

INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB) is a publicly traded, clinical-stage biotechnology company developing therapies targeting the innate immune system to fight disease. INmune Bio is developing three product platforms: two products that re-engineer the patient’s innate immune system’s response to cancer and one product to treat neuroinflammation that is currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease. INKmune is a natural killer (“NK”) cell therapeutic that primes the patient’s NK cells to attack minimal residual disease, the remaining cancer cells that are difficult to detect, which often cause relapse. INB03 inhibits myeloid derived suppressor cells (“MDSC”), which often cause resistance to immunotherapy, such as anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors. XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation, which causes microglial activation and neuronal cell death. INmune Bio’s product platforms utilize a precision medicine approach for the treatment of a wide variety of hematologic malignancies, solid tumors and chronic inflammation.

$TGOD $TGODF Launches Global Strategic Hemp Division

  • Global CBD market expected to hit $22 billion within 3 years
  • TGOD to leverage HemPoland’s strong expertise in the European hemp CBD market
  • 158 acres of certified organic farmland located in Southern Ontario
  • Planting underway with first harvest expected within 12 weeks

TORONTO, June 20, 2019 - The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “TGOD”) (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce its expansion into the global organic hemp CBD market with the launch of its Global Strategic Hemp Division. This new division will leverage TGOD’s solid expertise in the European hemp CBD market to fuel growth and accelerate the development and commercialization of new products across its network of international partners.

“With the global CBD market expected to hit $22 billion in less than 3 years, it is clear that the segment is drawing substantial consumer demand,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD.  ”Our team has years of direct hands-on experience in the CBD space and we are excited to use this advantage to execute on a fast-moving market expansion strategy.  CBD is a wellness product and has a natural fit with TGOD’s certified organic positioning and the large segment of consumers who are increasingly demanding natural and organic products.  The time to act is now, and TGOD has the team, the infrastructure and the capital to establish a significant presence in this market.”

TGOD’s acquisition of HemPoland in 2018 will continue to provide the Company with significant intellectual property and valuable insights as its Global Strategic Hemp Division expands into emerging hemp CBD markets. HemPoland saw its revenue for the first quarter grow by nearly 30% quarter over quarter as demand for high-quality hemp CBD products in Europe gains momentum.

HemPoland has years of experience in cultivating and processing EU-registered hemp varieties, which are very similar to those currently allowed for cultivation in Canada. Given that the processing of industrial hemp flowers for CBD was illegal in Canada until October 2018, HemPoland’s experience in both research and development, as well as commercial extraction of hemp strains in an efficient manner, provides a distinct advantage to TGOD and its partners.

TGOD’s Global Strategic Hemp Division will offer significant support to the Company’s international partners by providing genetics, training on organic methods and standard operating procedures, as well as regulatory insights and other advisory support. This will allow for the production of consistent high-quality organic hemp and CBD in global markets. The division will initially work to support initiatives in Canada, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico, Poland and the U.S.A.

TGOD, through its European subsidiary, HemPoland, has already signed a distribution agreement with Mediakos, a leading German pharmaceutical distributor and has had in-depth discussions with co-packers and additional distributors to continue expanding its footprint across Europe.

The Company also plans to enter the U.S. hemp CBD beverage market through existing partnerships, providing TGOD with maximum flexibility and the ability to  go to market with hemp-based CBD beverages quickly and with a capital light model.

In Canada, The Green Organic Hemp Ltd. (“TGOH”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TGOD, has been licenced by Health Canada for the cultivation of organic hemp since 2018. TGOH grew a small test crop last year, and has successfully renewed the licence for the cultivation of a larger crop in 2019 on 158 acres of organic farmland in Southern Ontario. Planting activities are underway and the first harvest is expected within 12 weeks.

“Hemp is an incredible crop, one we can manufacture into mass market organic CBD products to establish an immediate market presence in Canada through tinctures and oils, while we prepare for the introduction of additional delivery methods such as vapes, beverages, edibles and topicals later this year,” added Athaide.

TGOH intends to supplement its own harvest with large offtake agreements from experienced Canadian organic hemp cultivators, with a potential increase to its internal production of 50,000 kgs. Wholesale hemp supply agreements have already been secured, allowing TGOH to begin domestic production of organic hemp CBD products. The Company has already signed toll processing contracts with Valens GroWorks and Neptune Wellness Solutions to quickly ramp up production volumes.

$PBIO Ultra High Pressure HUB Platform Featured at World’s Largest Food Science Conference

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO) today announced the featuring of its HUB platform of unique, ultra-high pressure instruments in three presentations at the world’s largest annual food science conference, the Institute of Food Technologists (“IFT”), held in New Orleans, Louisiana, earlier this month. According to the update, the presentations reported the use of PBIO’s HUB440 and HUB880 Explorer systems to advance understanding of the effects of high pressure processing (“HPP”) on serious food-borne pathogens in liquid food products and ground meat, as well as the decontamination of such pathogens. “The need for safer food is a world-wide concern.  In recognition, the United Nations proclaimed June 7, 2019 as the first World Food Safety Day,” PBIO President and CEO Richard T. Schumacher said in the news release. “HPP currently plays an important role in food safety: although this unique process is barely 20 years old, it has nonetheless already grown into an estimated $20 billion market.  By 2026, the projected market size of the high pressure processing food market could reach approximately $42 billion (Visiongain, 2016).  We believe that presentations such as Dr. Fouladkhah’s at this year’s IFT Conference will help generate awareness of our new, powerful yet affordable bench-top HUB family of products in the food industry, government, military, and academic laboratory environment, and that this added exposure will result in an increased demand for our HUB equipment in this large and growing market.”

  • The Green Organic Dutchman is building a name for itself as it works on production build-up from 2,000 kilograms of cannabis to 200,000 kilograms
  • The company has facilities in Canada and is making inroads in Europe and Mexico through pharmaceutical networks
  • In the United States, TGOD is finding access to the $20 billion functional beverage industry segment

The advent of indoor cultivation that’s suitable for the cannabis industry has changed the commercial production capacity of marijuana and medical-grade cannabis suppliers.

$OGI 420 with CNW – Poll Shows Americans want CBD as an OTC Drug

A survey conducted by Gallup has found that the majority of Americans who are familiar with CBD (cannabidiol) want it available as an over-the-counter drug. The results of the survey were released on Friday last week (June 14).

The CBD craze traces its roots to the cannabis reform movement, and it gained momentum when the Farm Bill 2018 became law last year. This bill legalized industrial hemp and all its derivatives, including CBD.

The survey involving 1,017 participants was conducted over the phone in a bid to get insights into the widespread appeal of CBD. The interviews were conducted from May 15-30.

In all, 39 percent of the people polled revealed that they want to see CBD available as an OTC drug while 21 percent said CBD should be accessed using a doctor’s prescription. 36 percent of the people polled revealed that they weren’t familiar with this particular compound of hemp and marijuana plants.

When Gallup focused on those who were familiar with CBD and asked them whether CBD should be purchased as an OTC drug or as a prescription drug, 61 percent favored the OTC option while 33 percent preferred to see it as a prescription drug.

The participants in the poll were also asked to rate how familiar they were with CBD. 14 percent looked at themselves as “very familiar” with it, 33 percent felt they were “somewhat familiar”, 17 percent felt they were “not too familiar” while 36 percent confessed that they “weren’t familiar at all” with cannabidiol.

Gallup again narrowed its attention to only those who categorized themselves as very familiar with cannabidiol and asked them for their opinion about the medicinal value of CBD. 90 percent of this group believed that CBD had therapeutic benefits.

Of those who thought CBD had medicinal benefits, 33 percent said it had “a lot of benefits”, 45 percent felt CBD had “some benefits” and 14 percent thought cannabidiol had “a few benefits.” 3 percent were neutral on the matter while 4 percent said cannabidiol didn’t have any medical benefits.

Commenting about their findings, Gallup wrote that most Americans already believe that CBD has medicinal value even if research has been slow in proving or disproving many of the therapeutic benefits attributed to CBD. Gallup is convinced that the fraction of people who think CBD is medicinal is most likely to grow as more people get exposed to this non-psychoactive compound.

This possibility takes on a greater degree of certainty given that the FDA has already been convinced enough of CBD’s therapeutic benefits to the extent of approving a drug targeting rare forms of epilepsy.

The pressure on federal agencies like the FDA and Congress to pass laws legalizing CBD as a food supplement and other uses is therefore going to increase as the months go by.

Cannabis industry analysts are of the opinion that the Gallup findings didn’t catch industry players like Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQB: PLPRF) and Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX.V: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) by surprise.

$GGBXF New Products from Cannabis Branding Experts Gaining Shopper Attention

New cannabis-infused products continue to hit shelves in major markets across North America, and into Europe. This has led to major competition among products on store shelves coming from branding and packaging innovators such as The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF), Green Growth Brands (CSE:GGB) (OTC:GGBXF), Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE:CURA) (OTC:CURLF), Green Thumb Industries Inc. (CSE:GTII) (OTC:GTBIF), and 1933 Industries Inc. (CSE:TGIF) (OTC:TGIFF).Much of this new cannabis wave is derived from an increase in availability of cannabis products, gaining approval in major markets.

One such market is Oregon, where Statista projects to be worth nearly $1 billion by 2022. Recently, The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) received final packaging approval from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) for 6 Wright & Well cannabis topicals and tinctures to be distributed in the Pacific Northwest state.

The initial 6 approved Wright & Well products are Be Chill Tincture (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source); Be Better CBD Tincture (CBD: hemp source); Be Better CBD Extra Strength Tincture (CBD: hemp source); Be Relieved Pain Gel (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source); Be Free Pain Balm (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source); and Be Loved Massage Oil (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source)

“The OLCC packaging approval is one of the most rigorous processes to complete before products can be legally manufactured and sold in Oregon,” said Penny Green, CEO of Yield Growth. “Now that we have successfully completed the process, we have cleared the final hurdle, and we expect manufacturing to be complete in early July, and sales to begin in late-July.”

The products will be distributed in Oregon by Nova Paths, an Oregon-based cannabis licensed distributor that has established relationships with over 400 licensed cannabis retail stores. Targeted towards wellness-minded consumers, the products incorporate the highest quality CBD, THC, hemp root oil and terpenes to support a healthy lifestyle.

The approval came on the heels of the company’s previous announcement of a line of cannabidiol (CBD) W&W products in California.

Yield Growth has seized upon the global CBD market as a huge opportunity. A new study from BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research projected this segment of the cannabis market alone could be worth $20 billion by 2024. This figure is a significant jump from estimated retail sales of CBD products in 2018, which ranged from $600 million to $2 billion.

In order to gain attention from new customers as this market continues to open up, targeted branding like that of Wright & Well products is needed. As giant mainstream retail chains such as CVS Health, Kroger, and Walgreens work towards carrying more cannabis-infused products on their shelves, it’s innovation from the products’ manufacturers that will likely be seen as being increasingly important through this cannabis revolution.

STRATEGIC ROLLOUTS OF NEW PRODUCTS

Getting products noticed requires creativity, and taking advantage of every potential platform. Capitalizing on a monthly subscriber base of over 3 million, The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) tapped beauty community ipsy, for its Urban Juve line of CBD-infused beauty products.

Urban Juve’s hemp root oil products became available for purchase on Shopper, ipsy’s ecommerce marketplace and will be featured in ipsy’s new product showcase, Glam Bag.

Urban Juve’s distribution goes far beyond ipsy, as it recently was announced for distribution of products in Greece and Cyprus. Overall the line has signed over 110 retail locations to sell its products in North America, and is now available through e-commerce sales in China, the US, Japan, South Korea and Germany.

The Urban Juve line of products continues to grow, with the latest announcement of its new line of CBD-infused skin care products, dubbed Urban Juve CBD Skin Essentials. The full-spectrum CBD products is expected to officially launch in the fall, using Urban Juve’s proprietary hemp root oil to maximize skin renewal. Urban Juve Skin Essentials will launch with two initial products: CBD Face Oil, CBD Facial Serum.

“Healthy, vibrant, glowing skin is the result of making right skin care choices,” said Bhavna Solecki, Director of Product Development at Urban Juve in the company’s accompanying press release. “Quality ingredients, thoughtfully formulated, ensure that your skin is nourished, supple and protected from environmental pollutants.”

$CNPOF $RIV $RIV.V Makes US$10 Million Investment in Plant Genetics Innovator ZeaKal

TORONTO and SAN DIEGO, June 19, 2019 – Canopy Rivers Inc. (“Canopy Rivers“, the “Company”) (TSXV: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) and ZeaKal, Inc. (“ZeaKal“) are pleased to announce an investment and strategic collaboration between Canopy Rivers and ZeaKal, a California-based plant science innovator with proprietary technologies that sustainably increase photosynthesis, improve plant yield and enhance nutritional profiles for a variety of agricultural crops. The investment from Canopy Rivers marks another significant corporate milestone this calendar year for ZeaKal, following the February announcement of its R&D collaboration (link) with Corteva Agriscience (NYSE: CTVA), the recently spun-out and NYSE-listed agricultural science division of DowDuPont.

ZeaKal’s proprietary technology, PhotoSeed™, increases a plant’s intrinsic photosynthetic capacity, meaning that PhotoSeed™ plants can convert more sunlight and carbon dioxide into energy for growth. This results in substantial improvement in seed and grain yield, as well as improved macronutrient profiles that drive an increase in both oil and protein content. For farmers, this means better productivity and profit margins; for consumers, this means higher nutritional profiles and an environmentally friendly way to meet growing global demand.  With multi-year field trials across diverse plant species in the United States, Canada and New Zealand, the initial commercial focus has been on major row crops. Following Canopy Rivers’ investment, ZeaKal intends to expand its program to include cannabis and hemp.

“Our investment in ZeaKal, the fifth consecutive international transaction for Canopy Rivers, builds on our thesis of selecting globally scalable and innovative processes, products, and technologies from complementary industries, and applying them to the cannabis and hemp economy,” said Mary Dimou, Director of Business Development at Canopy Rivers. “Plant sciences is a mostly overlooked but absolutely critical segment of the cannabis and hemp value chain, and we are seeking to address this gap with this investment. ZeaKal’s technology has already realized success across a number of crops during field trials, and these are crops that have been commercialized for decades. The application of this innovative technology throughout the Canopy Rivers portfolio and the cannabis and hemp industry at large could be a game changer.”

Canopy Rivers believes that ZeaKal’s PhotoSeed™ technology has the potential to translate into significant benefits for the cannabis and hemp industry. Due to prohibition, the cultivation of cannabis and hemp has lacked the agricultural research and advancements that have significantly improved the cultivation of other crops. Canopy Rivers believes that applying ZeaKal’s PhotoSeed™ technology to cannabis and hemp represents a significant step forward – with increased crop yield, higher oil production, additional grow cycles, and enriched cannabinoid output numbering among the potential benefits of the technology. While trials on cannabis and hemp have yet to begin, the positive results already achieved give Canopy Rivers confidence in ZeaKal’s experienced team and its ability to successfully optimize and adapt its technology for expansion into this industry.

“We are elated that Canopy Rivers, a cannabis and hemp industry authority, has selected ZeaKal as an agriculture partner,” said Han Chen, Chief Executive Officer of ZeaKal. “Beyond the capital, it is further validation that PhotoSeed™ is a next-generation blockbuster trait that can be utilized across diverse industries. With its rich domain and technical expertise, Canopy Rivers is supporting our entry into the cannabis and hemp markets with a technology we expect to be transformative for the sector.”

As a result of its US$10,000,000 investment, Canopy Rivers owns approximately 8.7% of ZeaKal on a fully diluted basis and holds an observer seat on ZeaKal’s board of directors.
