$INMB Announces Potentially Strong Link Between Obesity and Alzheimer’s

LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 21, 2019  — INmune Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB), an immunology company developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, announced today that Dr. Malú Tansey presented data that show the use of INmune Bio’s lead compound, XPro1595, appear to mitigate the exacerbation of Alzheimer’s-like pathology triggered by a high fat and high fructose diet in mice. Dr. Tansey was the lead speaker at a press conference during the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) 49th Annual Meeting, today in Chicago.

 “The new data strengthen our findings that a potential connection between diets rich in fat and sugar and chronic inflammation can lead to an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease,” said Malú Tansey, Ph.D., Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease at the University of Florida College of Medicine. “With more than 93 million obese people in the U.S., according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, understanding the link between obesity and Alzheimer’s disease is more relevant now than ever. By targeting inflammation with XPro1595 we may be able to effectively treat neurodegenerative diseases.”

XPro1595 is a novel anti-inflammatory drug that blocks inflammation by selectively neutralizing soluble tumor necrosis factor and it is currently being studied in Australia in a Phase I clinical trial for patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease who have biomarkers of neuroinflammation.

Dr. Tansey is a leader in the field of neuroinflammation and immune system responses in modulating the gene-environment interactions that determine risk for development and progression of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases.

“Finding new ways to stop, treat and prevent Alzheimer’s has been the holy grail of researchers for decades,” said R.J. Tesi, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of INmune Bio. “With more than 200 failed trials, the Company believes that its  novel approach to target neuroinflammation has the potential to change the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.”

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia and is characterized by chronic inflammation and the decline in cognitive function and neuronal loss. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5.8 million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and by 2050 the numbers are projected to increase up to 14 million individuals. Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States with no cure or way to stop or slow the progression of the disease. Currently, there are approximately 47 million people living with Alzheimer’s disease worldwide.

$TGODF Former FDA Boss Calls for Federal Regulation of Marijuana Markets

October 17, 2019

On Monday, Scott Gottlieb, the former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner, said that the federal government should be given the authority to regulate states’ marijuana programs.

In a CNBC appearance, Scott Gottlieb said that the increase in vaping related lung illnesses calls for the need of a federal regulatory system that would give the agencies power to enforce industry standards on all facets of the legal cannabis market such as the potency of THC and the proper methods of consumption.

Although the official was previously not clear on the extent of federal government involvement citing that the vaping problems are due to conflicts between the state and federal laws– he did not say which would be his preferred policy fix. However, last week in a Wall Street Journal editorial, he provided some clarification by saying that federal drug scheduling laws for marijuana should be reformed to offer limited regulations and promote more research on cannabis.

During a TV interview, Gottlieb said that enforcing marijuana prohibition is not politically practicable anymore and that Congress should approve a federal law that allows the enactment of appropriate supervision by the regulatory authorities.

Although he is not in support of the legalization of recreational marijuana and if possible he would like it to shut down completely, the reality of the situation is that many states have already legalized it; thus, any federal system formed would have to accommodate recreational cannabis.

When he was asked if all the states would be in a position to implement all the regulations he has proposed, Gottlieb said no, because some states do not have the capacity nor the resources to control what is being sold in their legal dispensaries as well as shutting down the black market.

He said that for this to be possible, federal authorities are a necessity.

The regulatory model Gottlieb is envisioning is one where the FDA and agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration could control the potency of the products, the manufacturing process, the ingredients, and the purpose for which the products are made.

Gottlieb further added that by federalizing marijuana and allowing recreational consumption, they would be in a position where they can limit the types of cannabis products being sold, their potency, and the forms in which it can be consumed. However, he still thinks vaping products should be banned.

He said that the federal agencies should enact strict measures on medical cannabis while holding them to a higher standard and allowing recreational use of the product with lower concentrations of THC, which poses less harm that vaping e-liquids.

He concludes by saying that compromising is right where you allow some form of recreational consumption of marijuana, which is in low concentration in the states allowing it instead of leaving it as it is today where there are no federal laws governing marijuana in those state-legal markets.

Industry analysts believe that companies like VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTCQX: VVCIF) and The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) could be seeing lots of sense in the proposals of the former FDA chief.

$INMB Presentation of Data on XPro1595 at SfN Annual Meeting

Data on Neuroinflammation and Alzheimer’s Disease to be Presented by Dr. Malú Tansey; Presentation Selected for Meeting’s Press Conference

LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 17, 2019 — INmune Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB), an immunotherapy company developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, announced today a poster presentation related to the company’s program in Alzheimer’s disease at the upcoming Society for Neuroscience (SfN) 49th Annual Meeting, to be held Oct. 19–23 at McCormick Place in Chicago. In addition, INmune Bio announced that this presentation has been selected for presentation during the meeting’s press conference.

Presented in a poster by Malú Tansey, Ph.D., Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease at the University of Florida College of Medicine, the data from studies involving the use of INmune Bio’s XPro1595 demonstrate the critical role of the immune system on an individual’s genetic risk in the context of environmental exposures, such as a diet high in fat and sugar, for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.   The Company believes that  XPro1595 is a next generation anti-inflammatory that crosses the blood-brain barrier to affect neurodegenerative diseases by selectively inhibiting soluble tumor necrosis factor.

“It’s become clear that neurological disorders can arise from or be exacerbated by innate immune dysfunction and chronic inflammation resulting from both genetic and environmental factors such as diet,” said Dr. Tansey. “Harnessing the power of the immune system could potentially delay or perhaps even prevent some of these neurological disorders. Our results provide a compelling rationale for moving forward with a clinical trial in early Alzheimer’s disease patients.”

The SfN Annual Meeting is the premier venue for neuroscientists to present emerging science, learn from experts, forge collaborations with peers and explore new tools and technologies related to the brain and the nervous system.

Poster Details

Session: Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias: Therapeutic Strategies III

Poster number: 564

Presentation Title: Soluble tnf mediates obesogenic diet‑induced alterations in peripheral and brain immunophenotype in a model of Alzheimer’s disease

Time and Date: 1:00 PM, Oct. 22

$BHAT to Launch New Product AR Dinosaur at China Toy Expo

XIAMEN, China, Oct. 16, 2019 — Blue Hat Interactive Entertainment Technology (“Blue Hat” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BHAT), a producer, developer and operator of augmented reality (“AR”) interactive entertainment games and toys in China, today announced that it will launch its new AR Dinosaur toy at the 18th China International Toy Fair (China Toy Expo) which takes place between October 16-18, 2019 in Shanghai, China. Along with the AR Dinosaur, a range of Blue Hat’s popular products will also be on display at the Fair, including the AR Racer, AR Need a Spanking, Bouncing Bubble, and AR Construction Truck products.

New Product Release – AR Dinosaur

AR Dinosaur is an educational toy designed for children aged 5 years and over. Through interactions with the AR Dinosaur physical toy and its mobile application, children can learn a range of information about dinosaurs. The AR Dinosaur is available in five different types of dinosaur, and is enhanced with augmented reality technology.

The AR Dinosaur comes with five physical AR cards that can be placed under the toy to activate its AR features, allowing children to gain knowledge about dinosaurs in an interactive and engaging way. Blue Hat’s advanced research and development allows each type of AR Dinosaur to have their own personality and emotions, which they express by turning their head when they hear a user’s voice, and by making sounds to express how they are feeling. A mobile application designed for the product offers an encyclopedia of information about different types of dinosaur to further enhance the educational value of the product, which will be available for download in the coming months.

Classic Popular Products at the Expo

AR Racer is a car-racing mobile game played using a small physical toy car placed onto the user’s mobile device screen. Users can virtually race one another via a simulated racing track and can also engage in individual races. The physical toy car uses non-adhesive materials to stick to a designated area of the mobile device. Blue Hat’s photosensitive recognition technology allows the toy car to be used as a controller such that when a player encounters an obstacle in the mobile game, the toy car will respond with entertaining actions, such as flashing lights and vibrations that enhance the user experience. 

AR Need a Spanking is an exciting combat game which is played using a ladybug-shaped electronic toy. Blue Hat’s infrared induction technology allows the user’s mobile device to serve as a control panel by which the user controls the movement of the toy for game play in battle dynamics, while simultaneously moving the toy in reality. The user’s mobile device shows a display of virtual enemies while also capturing the position of the toy in the real world, allowing the user to approach or escape its combatants. The program embedded in the toy is used to establish a variety of fun, unique game play mechanics.

Bouncing Bubble is a product designed using specific environmentally-friendly and toxic-free liquid allowing for larger, stronger bubbles that won’t easily pop. Children can bounce these bubbles using a paddle or gloves like ping pong balls, for an extra level of fun than can be provided by conventional bubble products.

The AR Construction Truck product comprises a traditional toy construction truck model which is enhanced with additional interactive features. The product’s accompanying mobile application gives children an audiovisual introduction to the respective features of different construction vehicles, and allows simulated AR operation of the vehicle’s movement, lights and doors.

$YGYI University of Pennsylvania to Study CBD Use in Dogs

Every decade or two, there are medical discoveries made that thoroughly shake up the entire pharmaceutical industry. Drugs such as penicillin, insulin, and thorazin not only changed the scope of how severe medical conditions could be treated, but they were instrumental in helping thousands, if not millions of people, live more comfortable and healthy lives.

CBD is, without a doubt, this decade’s superstar. More and more people have started to take notice as testimonials and tons of anecdotal evidence about cannabidiol’s effectiveness pile up. CBD works against pain, inflammation, anxiety, and a host of other conditions quite well. So well, in fact, that people have begun thinking about how CBD can be applied more radically; there’s a new study that will…

$OGI Cannabis 2.0: Canada Set to Legalize CBD Topicals and Beverages

Palm Beach, FL – October 15, 2019 — Over the next three days, Canada will legalize CBD all over again.  Just a year after legalizing dried cannabis flower, oils, and sprays, Canada will now legalize edibles, beverages, and topicals this Thursday, October 17, potentially creating sizable opportunity for growth.  Interesting to note, according to analysts at Deloitte, up to 60% of Canadians would use cannabis edible products.  That’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF), Aphria Inc. (NYSE:APHA) (TSX:APHA), Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB) (OTCQX:CWBHF), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (TSX-V:OGI) (NASDAQ:OGI), and GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (NASDAQ:GWPH).

The Yield Growth Corp.

$CNPOF $RIV.V Receives Milestone Health Canada Licence Amendment

TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2019 – Canopy Rivers (“Canopy Rivers“) (TSX: RIV, OTC: CNPOF), a venture capital firm specializing in cannabis, today announced that its portfolio company James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation (“JWC“) (TSXV: JWCA, OTCQX: JWCAF) received a Health Canada licence amendment allowing for cannabis production in four new flowering rooms at its flagship facility in Kitchener, Ontario.

“We believe that this licence amendment demonstrates Health Canada’s recognition of JWC, the quality of its operations, and its disciplined approach to expansion,” said Olivier Dufourmantelle, Chief Operating Officer, Canopy Rivers. “Through its supply agreement with TerrAscend, JWC has an active role in the Canopy Rivers ecosystem. We’ve seen that companies that work together, thrive together, and we think this Health Canada approval will enable JWC to increase production and further collaborate within the Canopy Rivers ecosystem.”

The additional flowering rooms are part of an ongoing program to expand JWC’s existing production capacity. At full-scale, the facility will measure 345,000 square feet. Like the previously licensed space, the newly licensed areas will be equipped with JWC’s proprietary GrowthSTORM™ Dual Droplet™ System. GrowthSTORM™ is an aeroponic method that sees plant roots suspended in the air and misted at regular intervals using specified nutrient solutions adapted for the system. When combined with the GrowthSTORM™ Management system, this method delivers a precise cultivation technique with the ability to collect and analyze data to continually deliver consistent, high-quality cannabis. More information on GrowthSTORM™ can be found on JWC’s website.

Once fully operational, the new flowering rooms will double the facility’s current licensed production capacity from 22,000 square feet, to approximately 44,500 square feet. The additional spaces are composed of two pods, each consisting of two flowering rooms, with each room containing approximately 5,500 square feet of cultivation space.

$SRAX Sidesteps a Bullet by Doing What’s Right Amid $55 Billion Tech Data Sector Slump

October 11, 2019

  • New privacy laws in California place SRAX ahead of the competition
  • Privacy has always been a consumer right for SRAX
  • Building a reliable, opted-in consumer dataset has long-term, recurring revenue potential for SRAX

SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX), a digital marketing and consumer data management technology company, has developed a consumer-managed data marketplace where people can own and earn from their data. As new privacy laws come into play in California, Los Angeles-based SRAX is already ahead of the competition.

BIGtoken, built by SRAX, offers a secure and transparent environment for consumers to own and earn from their data. Long before California law makers were writing legislation that valued the privacy of individuals over the agenda of big players (i.e. Facebook, Google, Amazon), SRAX was putting the consumer in the driver’s seat. Founded in 2010, the company has sought from the beginning to provide highly valued, consumer-powered data that reveals brands’ core consumers. By providing the consumer with essential key control, the company has unlocked the true value of data.

While other companies are adjusting budgets to cover the cost of compliancy to a new California law by January 1, 2020, BIGtoken has already sidestepped the legal data issue because it requests users’ permission for data sharing when those users initially sign up for the platform. BIGtoken puts control in the hands of the consumer by providing the right to privacy, awareness and choice from the get-go (http://nnw.fm/oZiY0). Once users sign up, they are able to determine and make decisions on how much of their information is shared and to whom. For SRAX, privacy has always been a right.

Doing the right thing from day one has placed SRAX a step ahead in the industry. Competitors in digital marketing and consumer data management will be spending up to $55 billion to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) (http://nnw.fm/4HAjK). The bill gives California residents the right to be informed about how companies gather and use their data, an ideal that is an integral component of BIGtoken’s core mission. BIGtoken has been building consumers’ trust, resulting in an increase of consumer opted-in data made available to brands, making that data far more valuable than information collected through data mining.

SRAX is building reliable, opted-in consumer data set that will have a long-term recurring revenue stream. As consumers become more aware of the value of their data, they naturally expect to be compensated for it. The larger social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat are experiencing consumer backlash as questions are being asked and more privacy laws are going into effect.

The CCPA appears to be only the beginning as consumers become more aware of their data rights and demand more of those entrusted with it. Privacy laws at both the state and federal level will continue to change and impact the way marketers reach consumers. As consumers become more empowered and informed, SRAX will continue to meet their high expectations.

$OGI CBD Oil Social Event Hosted in Birmingham

October 11, 2019

Ever since cannabidiol (CBD) was legalized in Alabama, CBD shops and social events have been popping up like weeds all over the state. Most of them are geared at destigmatizing CBD and pushing their products. On Monday, HempWorx hosted its social event in Jefferson County, and people were invited to come learn all about CBD (and purchase a product or two).

One of the main problems CBD has faced is its continued association with its psychoactive cousin THC. Despite cannabidiol having no psychotropic effects, the two are often lumped together. Thus, the negative light in which THC is usually cast bleeds over onto CBD. It is this stigma that these social events seek to break.

Topher Black, a sales representative from HempWorx, says that most of the people he meets either know all about CBD or have no clue where to even begin. That’s where he steps in, educating them on CBD, where it comes from, and all its benefits.

He explains that there’s a big difference between CBD and THC. Cannabidiol is extracted from the hemp plant while THC comes from marijuana, and they both affect the body in very different ways. While THC will get you high, CBD affects the body differently. It can reduce chronic pain and inflammation, help manage stress and anxiety, among a host of other benefits. HempWorx offers both products that have trace amounts of THC and those that have zero THC content.

Although the state still has a limited number of licensed CBD merchants, folks have long since started planting hemp since it was legalized. The demand for CBD products is there, but it’s still not high enough to warrant an influx of sellers into the market. A few sellers are making a killing, though; some people are selling CBD infused beer, there are CBD infused menus in some coffee shops, and some spas and massage parlors are offering the product too. While the numbers are still low, people are becoming more and more aware of CBD’s host of medical benefits. As word spreads, chances are more people will be willing to give the product a try.

Holding such social events for CBD is an ingenious idea because CBD is still steeped in negative stereotypes, and it has such restrictive marketing regulations that advertising is virtually impossible. These events are therefore a great way to educate the public on CBD, its benefits. Experts believe that CBD industry actors like Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR) and Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI) applaud the creativity that went into organizing the CBD social event.

$TGODF The Psilocybin Mushroom Story Could be the Next Big Investment Boom

Palm Beach, FL – October 10, 2019 –  As the cannabis market booms, another drug may soon follow in its footsteps — psilocybin mushrooms.  Already, we’re seeing a groundswell of interest.  In fact, activists in California are working on getting its decriminalization added to the 2020 ballot.  The proposed amendment – called the California Psilocybin Decriminalization Initiative—would revise state drug laws to decriminalize the “personal possession, storage, use, cultivation, manufacturing, distribution in personal possession amounts, according to Marijuana Moment.  Better, the U.S. FDA already granted “breakthrough status” to COMPASS Pathways’ psilocybin-assisted therapy in October 2018, which allows the FDA assist in the development of a promising drug to treat serious illnesses.  In addition, researchers at New York University found psilocybin mushrooms caused a “rapid and sustained” reduction in anxiety and depression in patients with cancer, as reported by the Financial Post. As excitement builds, it’s opening a range of opportunity for companies that have already established launching cannabis products including The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF),  GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH), Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY), Aphria Inc. (NYSE:APHA) (TSX:APHA), and The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX:TGOD)(OTCQX:TGODF).

The Yield Growth Corp.(CSE:BOSS)(OTCQB:BOSQF) BREAKING NEWS:The Yield Growth Corp. just announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Flourish Mushroom Labs Inc. has completed the acquisition, announced on September 24, 2019, of a catalogue of mushroom formulas as the foundation of a mushroom edibles business.  The formulas and know-how acquired relate to formulations that may be used to create ready to eat packaged food products or packaged food products that may be mixed with mushroom varietals of the consumer’s choice. The formulations include soups, teas, hot cocoa, elixirs  and truffles.  Flourish has engaged the developers to create additional products to add to the base catalogue and commercialize the formulas,  going to market first with mushroom based soups and coffees.  “Learning and memory are the core cognitive functions of the human brain,” says Penny White, Yield CEO.” With a rapid decline of age affecting the population cognitive deficit is leading to many neurological diseases. Flourish recognizes the early prevention needed for declining learning and memory to conduct research into creating edible products combining  the mushroom medicine for a broad potential market.” Included in the acquisition is know-how and research related to edible mushrooms that could be used in the formulations and various health benefits that can accrue to people eating those mushrooms, as determined by researching data published from clinical trials and from knowledge of  Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine.  The varieties of mushrooms to be used in the formulations include Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Reishi, Shitake, Chagas, Cordyceps and other wild varietals.  The research and data on health benefits are included in the acquisition by Flourish.  Flourish purchased the formulations and all know-how and data related to the formulations with the issuance of 120,000 common shares of Yield Growth at a deemed value of $0.25 per share.

Other related developments in Yield Growth’s industry include: 

 

GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (NASDAQ:GWPH) just announced that the European Commission (EC) has approved the marketing authorization for EPIDYOLEX for use as adjunctive therapy of seizures associated with Lennox‑Gastaut syndrome (LGS) or Dravet syndrome, in conjunction with clobazam, for patients 2 years of age and older. The approval paves the way for the launch of the medicine across Europe.  “The approval of EPIDYOLEX marks a significant milestone, offering patients and their families the first in a new class of epilepsy medicines and the first and only EMA-approved CBD medicine to treat two severe and life-threatening forms of childhood-onset epilepsy,” said Justin Gover, GW’s CEO. “This approval is the culmination of many years of dedication and collaboration between GW, physicians and the epilepsy community. We believe patients and physicians deserve access to rigorously tested and evaluated cannabis-based medicines, manufactured to the highest standards and approved by medicines regulators, and we are delighted to be the first to offer this solution to the epilepsy community.”

 

Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY) announced it has entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Tilray, through a wholly-owned subsidiary of High Park Holdings Ltd. (will acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of 420 Investments Ltd., an adult-use cannabis retail operator headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.  FOUR20 provides adult-use cannabis consumers with a premium retail experience focused on high quality product selection, education and community. FOUR20 currently operates six licensed retail locations and has 16 additional high-traffic locations secured in desirable locations in Alberta, including Canmore, Calgary and Edmonton.

Aphria Inc. (NYSE:APHA) (TSX:APHA) issued the following statement in regards to Aleafia Health Inc.’s termination of the Company’s wholesale cannabis supply agreement with Emblem Corp.  “We are disappointed that Aleafia has chosen to terminate its Agreement with Aphria Inc. The Company had every intention of fulfilling its obligations under the Agreement. As a large shareholder of Aleafia, Aphria made good faith efforts to ensure continuation of the Agreement understanding it was in the best interest of all parties involved. However, the termination of this legacy Agreement frees up significant supply allowing the Company to service its brands that are in high-demand across the country.”  The Parties are contractually obligated to negotiate for a period of 30-days following the receipt of a formal notice of termination. If the Parties fail to arrive at any agreement or settlement within the 30-days, and if Aleafia initiates a formal claim for damages, the Company intends to vigorously defend itself.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX:TGOD)(OTCQX:TGODF) announced that it is reviewing financing alternatives in order to complete construction at its facilities in Ancaster, Ontario and Phase 1a at Valleyfield, Quebec. As previously disclosed, the Company had been engaged in discussions for ordinary course commercial bank facilities and equipment leasing. However, due to changing market conditions, those sources of financing have been unavailable on acceptable terms within the timeframes required, leading the Company to commence a review of additional alternatives. The Company currently has no debt and $56.7 million in cash available in Canada, including $40.2 million in restricted cash allocated to capital expenditures. Construction at Ancaster is largely complete with all grow rooms licensed by Health Canada and approximately 6 weeks left before substantial completion of the processing facility. The evidence package for this final component is expected to be submitted to Health Canada by the end of November for licensing. The Company will prioritize any financing secured to accelerate commercial production in order to ramp-up revenues.

$PBIO BaroShear K45 System Creates Water-Soluble CBD Oil

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based technology and products to the worldwide life sciences and other industries, has developed a revolutionary CBD processing system, the BaroShear K45, which effectively solves the water solubility issue found in most of today’s oil-based CBD products. An article discussing the company reads, “Development of the BaroShear K45 system began following the company’s in-depth analysis of the CBD market, which showed a common, yet critical production issue facing CBD manufacturers – the poor water solubility of today’s oil-based CBD products means that the beneficial properties of CBD are inadequately available for absorption in the body. . . . ‘After much diligence and analysis, we concluded that we have the expertise and experience to successfully address this critical issue,’ Richard T. Schumacher, president and CEO of PBIO, stated in an August 2019 shareholder report (http://cnw.fm/18gKi). ‘Consequently, we pulled significant hours away from many of our staff over the past few months and had them focus on the development of an instrument system – based on our patented UST platform – that would increase the water-solubility, and thus the absorption, of CBD Oil. We succeeded; the result of that success is the BaroShear K45 processing system.’”

$GGBXF Key Requirements for Starting a Successful CBD Brand

October 10, 2019

In recent years, cannabidiol has become a lot more mainstream than it used to be and the CBD industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. It’s clear that CBD isn’t going anywhere, and entrepreneurs have been flocking to the industry to have a piece of the pie. Every enterprise requires adequate preparation, and starting a successful CBD brand isn’t different. Liam McGreevy and Elliott Findon of Ethnopharm Limited had these tips to share to entrepreneurs looking to join the industry;

Have a Clear Understanding of the Laws and Regulations

Policies on CBD marketing and sale aren’t quite standardized. Having a deep understanding of the local legislation on CBD and other cannabinoids is crucial for business success. Non-compliance could lead to hefty fines and even convictions. Seek legal counsel on matters like product labeling, marketing and other matters that could have legal or regulatory implications. You don’t want the FDA, FTC or other regulators breathing down your neck, do you?

Set Up the Business

Every business needs a cohesive internal structure to run effectively. Relevant legal documents will play a significant role in protecting the business’ and the owner’s interests. Making sure all the relevant documents are in place will ensure operations run smoothly.

Get a Bank Account

You’ll need a place to put all the stacks of money you’ll be making, so it’s wise to get a bank account. Unfortunately, the banking industry is still wary about interacting with CBD merchants. The line between what’s legal or not is pretty thin, and most banks are afraid of being linked with money laundering services. Rome wasn’t built in a day, though, and it’ll take a while before the banking industry is entirely on board. Some banks are supportive, though, while some businesses register as non-CBD entities to access banking services. Do your homework and find a bank that will do business with you.

Brand, Brand and Brand

Building a brand image goes a long way in attracting and retaining customers. Carry out extensive market research and identify your target market. Having your target audience in mind will help you craft a brand that the market will identify with and accept. This is especially important in the CBD industry which has been flooded by a lot of startups jostling for a share of the booming market.

Find Suitable Suppliers

Once you’ve taken care of all that, now you have to stock up. You have the option of getting bulk ingredients or finished products, white-label, private label, or bulk CBD. There’s a whole lot of suppliers, and you’ll have to choose the option that suits you and your business most. Remember, be mindful about getting reputable suppliers of quality products because CBD is largely consumed for health reasons, so your business could tank if the consumers develop questions about the quality of what you sell.

Experts believe that CBD industry players like Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (OTCQB: IGNG) and Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE: GGB) (OTCQB: GGBXF) have managed to get a foothold in the industry by mastering the concepts above, and much more.

$SRAX BIGtoken Platform Benefits Customers, Marketers Alike

Digital marketing and consumer-data-management technology company SRAX (NASDAQ: SRAX) has developed the BIGtoken platform, a consumer-managed data marketplace where people can own and earn from their data. An article discussing the company reads, “The platform offers benefits for both customers and marketers. BIG Rewards enables marketers to engage BIGtoken’s nearly 16 million users to participate in brand research and exclusive offers. This exponentially expands BIGtoken’s commercial capabilities and helps to solve data problems across the digital marketing and advertising industry. Additionally, through the BIGtoken platform, consumers are equipped to own and earn from their data. As consumers become more aware of the value of personal data, an expectation of privacy and options for compensation for the release of that data is building. Consumers are fighting back against large social-media platforms that overstep expected boundaries regarding data collection. Not only are customers recognized and rewarded through this platform, but marketers benefit as well, creating a mutually beneficial relationship unlike any of its kind in the data space.”
