$LXRP Impact of Technology on CBD Edible Space Featured by CannabisNewsAudio

NEW YORK, May 31, 2019 — via CannabisNewsAudio – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) today announces the availability of a CannabisNewsAudio Broadcast titled, “Disruptive CBD Delivery Technology Could Revolutionize World of Cannabis Consumer Products, Edibles.”

Consider what [Lexaria BioScience Corp.’s DehydraTECH] technology could mean for the CBD edibles space. At 15 minutes, the DehydraTECH formulation achieved 475% higher concentrations and to levels not seen or achieved by MCT. This puts DehydraTECH on par with inhalation in terms of how fast acting it is, something which has been a brass ring to the edibles industry for many years.

Rapid uptake by the body’s various tissue systems as opposed to valuable raw ingredients being flushed down the toilet because of minimal absorption — that is a huge selling point to consumers. And DehydraTECH technology provides the additional benefit of enabling lower drug-dosage quantities, an important point to consider given that “Lexaria has every reason to believe that virtually identical results would have been achieved if THC was instead the cannabinoid under examination [in the aforementioned animal studies], consistent with subjective human clinical studies Lexaria’s partners have conducted with edible THC products.”

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.

Lexaria Bioscience has developed and out-licenses its disruptive delivery technology, which promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness of lipophilic active molecules. Lexaria has multiple patents pending in over 40 countries around the world and has patents granted in the United States and Australia for utilization of its DehydraTECH delivery technology. Lexaria’s technology provides increases in intestinal absorption rates, more rapid delivery to the bloodstream, and important taste-masking benefits for orally administered bioactive molecules including cannabinoids, vitamins, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules.

$YGYI 420 with CNW – Arizona Celebrates Court Decision on Concentrates as Sales Soar

In a 7-0 emphatic decision, the Supreme Court of Arizona has quashed a ruling by the Court of Appeal to the effect that marijuana concentrates, such as hashish, were not included in the law which legalized medical marijuana in the state.

This case arose after Yavapai County convicted a patient with a valid medical marijuana card issued by the state for possessing hashish. In their ruling delivered on Tuesday (May 28), the justices affirmed that the law legalized all forms of the cannabis plant, including the concentrates made from any segments of the plant that manufacturers deemed fit for processing.

For over a year, the decision of the Court of Appeal had stood and restricted the potentially explosive growth of the cannabis concentrates industry since the court ruling had excluded concentrates from the products envisaged by the 2010 law.

The cannabis extracts sold in medical marijuana dispensaries across the state include soda, candy, vape pens, food and many other products. Records show that the sale of cannabis concentrates is growing at a faster pace when compared to marijuana flower. For example, in the year ending April 2019, sales of cannabis flower grew by 33 percent while sales of concentrates surged by 71 percent in the same period. The 71 percent growth doesn’t include cannabis edibles.

It would therefore have been damaging (and strange) if the highest court has upheld the decision of the lower court. Many jurisdictions where medical marijuana is legal only allow extracts, such as cannabis oil, tinctures, creams, gels and ointments. These include Pennsylvania which only accepted smokable cannabis recently.

It is noteworthy that the dispensaries and manufacturers, such as Item 9 Labs, only paused cannabis concentrate sales briefly after the Court of Appeal ruling and then continued business as usual after their legal teams advised them that there was no legal basis for banning the concentrates.

The legal counsel of those companies has now been vindicated after the Supreme Court pronounced itself on the matter.

Patients have welcomed the latest ruling since the decision ensures that they will continue accessing marijuana concentrates. Many of the patients on the medical marijuana program are either unable or unwilling to smoke medical marijuana. Concentrates also provide a precise way to determine the dosage consumed, an attribute which is vital if the desired therapeutic effects are to be attained.

Lindsey Bartels, a patient who lives in Tempe and has battled chronic pain for years, admitted as much when she said cannabis oil allows her to live a normal life. Youngevity International Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI), Wildflower Brands Inc. (CSE: SUN) (OTCQB: WLDFF) and the entire cannabis industry welcomes the court decision in Arizona which has given patients like Lindsey Bartels hope that they will continue having access to cannabis concentrates which have proved immensely helpful in improving the quality of their lives.

“The ANKR brand reflects Organigram’s commitment to organic excellence, a responsiveness to the market and consumer preferences, and an understanding of the drivers of our future growth,” says Engel. “Organigram’s organic offering brings together the best of what we know about organic cultivation and product development and adds another high-quality offering to our product portfolio.”

$GNPX Featured by NetworkNewsAudio Discussing Gene Therapy & Cancer

NEW YORK, May 31, 2019 — via NetworkNewsAudio – Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ:GNPX) announces the availability of a NetworkNewsAudio publication titled, “Biotechs That Successfully Combat Cancer Could See Blockbuster Returns.”

To hear the NetworkNewsWire Audio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/LbI7g.

To read the full editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/0CFNt.

Preliminary results show that Oncoprex has the potential to become an effective add-on therapy for the treatment of deadly non-small cell lung cancer. Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ:GNPX) plans to expand the current erlotinib-Oncoprex trial to multiple research centers and conduct more new trials.

If Phase II results are as positive as preliminary indications, it could spark a rally in the shares and possibly even lure a large biotechnology or pharma company to sign a high-value partnership with Genprex. Should such a strategic partnership to commercialize Genprex’s technology transpire, it could potentially generate enormous value for the company’s shareholders.

Without any of this in the bank, Noble Financial has already pegged the stock to reach $5 a share, nearly triple from today’s closing price. With such positive preliminary results and blockbuster potential, it is possible that Noble’s target price might even be low.

About Genprex Inc.

Genprex Inc. is a clinical stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients, based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.

$LXRP Disruptive Potential of CBD Delivery Technology Featured by CannabisNewsWire

NEW YORK, May 30, 2019 — via CannabisNewsWire – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) today announces its placement in an editorial published by CannabisNewsWire (“CNW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities in the cannabis industry.

To view the full publication, titled “Disruptive CBD Delivery Technology Could Revolutionize World of Cannabis Consumer Products, Edibles,” please visit: http://cnw.fm/IF1hP.

The demand for CBD products now appears to be nothing short of historic, with CPG (consumer packaged goods) companies having never witnessed such an insatiable appetite for a new product type before. CBD, THC and others of the 100 or more cannabinoids found in cannabis appear to show strong potential for gobbling up market share across massive, vulnerable consumables industries, ranging from soft drinks and snack foods to alcoholic beverages and pet aides.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of edible CBD is being delivered to the human body in an inefficient manner, with most of the CBD simply ending up in the toilet. Typical CBD-infused products utilize industry-standard delivery methods such as MCTs (medium-chain triglyceride) like coconut oil. Such MCTs are a somewhat crude but straightforward approach, offering a rich texture and “mouth feel” but promising only limited delivery of CBD. Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) DehydraTECH(TM) patented formulations  have considerable disruptive potential amid the ongoing CBD boom, with recent multi-objective animal studies showing a clear advantage over industry standards, in terms of how efficiently edible forms of cannabinoids enter the bloodstream.

About Lexaria Bioscience Corp.

Lexaria Bioscience has developed and out-licenses its disruptive delivery technology, which promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness of lipophilic active molecules. Lexaria has multiple patents pending in over 40 countries around the world and has patents granted in the United States and Australia for utilization of its DehydraTECH delivery technology. Lexaria’s technology provides increases in intestinal absorption rates, more rapid delivery to the bloodstream, and important taste-masking benefits for orally administered bioactive molecules including cannabinoids, vitamins, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules.

Even though gene therapy is closing in on cancer, it remains as yet an unpredictable industry. However, biotech companies are in a feverish hunt for breakthroughs, and gene therapy could hold the keys. Tremendous advances have been made in gene-based therapeutics, and companies, such as Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ:GNPX), with the potential to make breakthroughs could deliver blockbuster returns.

Genprex is collaborating with MD Anderson Cancer Center to further develop and test its patented multimodal technology, currently in a Phase II clinical trial. The company recently caught the attention of a research-driven investment bank, Noble Financial, which initiated coverage of Genprex with an Outperform rating and a price target that’s about triple current levels.

In accordance with the terms of the Arrangement, each TGOD shareholder of record as of the Distribution Record Date who confirmed that such shareholder is not a U.S. Shareholder (as defined below) and elected to receive SpinCo Unit Warrants will receive 0.15 of one SpinCo Unit Warrant for each TGOD share held as of the Distribution Record Date.

Each SpinCo Unit consists of one common share of SpinCo (“SpinCo Share“) and one-half of one SpinCo Share purchase warrant (a “SpinCo Warrant“). Each SpinCo Warrant is exercisable into one SpinCo Share (a “SpinCo Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of $1.25 per SpinCo Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date the SpinCo Shares commence trading on a recognized stock exchange (the “Listing Date“), subject to certain acceleration provisions, including, without limitation, in the event SpinCo announces a financing at a price per security equal to or greater than $1.25. The SpinCo Shares comprising part of the SpinCo Units will be subject to a contractual escrow period commencing on the Distribution Date and ending six months after the Listing Date. The SpinCo Warrants and SpinCo Shares issuable upon the exercise of the SpinCo Warrants will be subject to a contractual escrow period commencing on the Distribution Date and ending twelve months after the Listing Date. No exchange of share certificates or DRS statements representing existing TGOD shares will be required under the Arrangement.

U.S. SHAREHOLDERS

The SpinCo Unit Warrants to be distributed pursuant to the Distribution will not be registered under the laws of any foreign jurisdiction, including the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“).

$TCAN Strict Acquisition Strategy Featured in CannabisNewsAudio Broadcast

NEW YORK, May 30, 2019 — via CannabisNewsAudio — TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN) (XETR:TH8) announces the availability of a CannabisNewsAudio Broadcast titled, “Hunt for Perfect Acquisitions Reshapes Cannabis Industry.”

To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/6OdMP.

To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/eLJi2.

Over the past 18 months, TransCanna has evaluated more than 100 California companies with an eye to acquisition. Strict vetting has whittled these options down to a handful of qualified deals, which TransCanna’s leadership team is pursuing. The company’s evaluation process is deliberate and selective, with an eye to ensuring that every addition plays an essential part in TransCanna’s long-term strategy.

It appears the company’s extreme due diligence on each potential transaction is paying off. In the past 30 days, TransCanna has announced two significant acquisition targets with signed LOIs: Lyfted Farms and SolDaze. It is reasonable to assume more acquisitions are in the works that, conditional upon closing, could certainly bring top-line revenue into the company before year-end.

$OGI fulfills gap in Canadian CBD Market with Edison CBD Oil

MONCTON, NB, May 29, 2019 – Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI), the parent company of Organigram Inc. (the “Company” or “Organigram”), a leading licensed producer of cannabis, is pleased to announce it has recently shipped more than one hundred and thirty thousand units of pure cannabidiol (CBD) oil destined for markets across Canada.

The recent legalization of adult-use, recreational cannabis in Canada has resulted in an increased demand for CBD, a naturally occurring compound in cannabis which has no psychoactive effect.

“Since legalization, Canadian consumers have proven themselves to be not only receptive to, but surprisingly well educated about, the benefits of CBD,” says Greg Engel, CEO, Organigram. “Consumers have embraced the idea of cannabis as it relates to overall wellness. While medical patients have long since discovered the potential benefits of CBD, we didn’t anticipate how that awareness would translate into the recreational market but are pleased to be able to help meet this consumer demand.”

Organigram attributes its ability to respond to growing CBD demand in part to the success of its strategic relationships and ongoing inputs from its provincial partners.

As previously announced, Organigram has a long-term agreement in place with 1812 Hemp, a New Brunswick-based industrial hemp research company. Initially, the deal offered Organigram access to approximately 6,000 kg of dried hemp flower harvested in the fall of 2018 which the Company purchased and sent for extraction in the first calendar quarter of 2019. In addition, Organigram has a right-of-first refusal on future procurement of hemp from 1812 Hemp which is expected to increase significantly over 2018 levels in 2019 and beyond.

Likewise, as announced in early 2019, Organigram’s multi-year extraction contract with Valens GroWorks Corp. means Valens will continue to extract cannabis flowers and trim from Organigram’s Moncton operation as well as hemp to produce extract concentrate. As anticipated, this concentrate is now being used by Organigram to produce cannabis oils. Following legalization of derivative based products, the Company plans to use the concentrates in the production of derivative edible and vaporizable cannabis products.

“The CBD market here in Canada and around the world represents a rapidly growing opportunity,” explains Engel. “At Organigram, we are committed to developing the capacity and relationships that deliver the supply, expertise and quality our customers are looking for while being able to scale up quickly to meet the increasing demand of the global medical and adult recreational cannabis markets.”

Organigram’s CBD oil is currently packaged in 25 ml bottles with a concentration of 10mg/ml of CBD.

About Organigram Holdings Inc.
Organigram Holdings Inc. is a TSX Venture Exchange and NASDAQ Global Select listed company whose wholly owned subsidiary, Organigram Inc., is a licensed producer of cannabis and cannabis-derived products in Canada.

Organigram is focused on producing the highest-quality, indoor-grown cannabis for patients and adult recreational consumers in Canada, as well as developing international business partnerships to extend the company’s global footprint. Organigram has also developed a portfolio of legal adult use recreational cannabis brands including The Edison Cannabis Company, Ankr Organics, Trailer Park Buds and Trailblazer. Organigram’s primary facility is located in Moncton, New Brunswick and the Company is regulated by the Cannabis Act and the Cannabis Regulations (Canada).

$TCAN Featured by CannabisNewsWire Discussing Cannabis Industry and Acquisition Strategy

For those involved in the cannabis industry, it’s easy to get sucked into a gold-rush mind-set. The slightest whiff of marijuana promises fat profits, and every company with a leaf logo looks like a sure thing. But as in any sector, one can find both good and bad options for purchase and investment. For companies set on a strategy of mergers and acquisitions, such as TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN) (Frankfurt: TH8), it’s just as important to be smart as it is to be buying.

Having performed a successful IPO on January 9, 2019, TransCanna is still a relatively new player in the market — but one that appears to be well positioned to make the most of both big markets and industry expertise. Headquartered in Canada, the only G7 country to have nationally legalized recreational cannabis, TransCanna has access to the talent pool and wealth of expertise that Canada has developed. The company has developed a two-year, four-phase plan aimed at developing proprietary brands and creating a self-contained ecosystem that ensure reliability, consistency, quality and scale.

$RIV $RIV.V $CNPOF Subsidiary Receives Final Cultivation Licence

Final 190,000 sq. ft. Greenhouse Licensed. Total of 700,000 sq. ft. of Production and Processing Infrastructure Now Fully Licensed

MIRABEL, QC, May 28, 2019 – Les Serres Vert Cannabis Inc. (“Vert Mirabel”), a subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) (“Canopy Growth”) and a portfolio company of Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSXV: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) (“Canopy Rivers”) has received its final cultivation licence from Health Canada. All 700,000 sq. ft. of operating space at Vert Mirabel is now licensed for cannabis production. Vert Mirabel was established in December 2017 between Canopy Growth, Canopy Rivers, and Les Serres Stéphane Bertrand (“Bertrand”).

“We are thrilled that the operational infrastructure at Vert Mirabel is now fully online with over 500,000 sq. ft. already in production,” said Olivier Dufourmantelle, Chief Operating Officer, Canopy Rivers. “Vert Mirabel is a key asset for Canopy Rivers as it provides exposure to a commercially scaled source of locally grown, premium quality cannabis for distribution into Québec and across the country.”

The licence for Vert Mirabel increases the facility’s growing space by 190,000 sq. ft. It brings Canopy Growth’s total Canadian licensed production footprint to approximately 4.6 million sq. ft, another step towards its nearly 5.6 million sq. ft. national platform. The Vert Mirabel facility leverages Bertrand’s multi-generational greenhouse operational expertise to produce high-quality cannabis.

“The final licence for Vert Mirabel strengthens our operations and will allow us to increase supply to meet the recreational market demand,” said Mark Zekulin, President and co-CEO, Canopy Growth. “From everyone at Canopy Growth, we congratulate the Bertrand family and their team for achieving a fully licensed, large-scale cannabis operation in under 18 months.”

Bertrand is a large-scale greenhouse operator and, prior to converting to cannabis, it was the largest producer of pink tomatoes in Canada. “We are proud to announce that our venture with Canopy Growth and Canopy Rivers has reached this milestone,” said Stéphane Bertrand. “Obtaining this licence will allow us to pursue our production goals in order to expand our footprint to meet the needs of the Québec market.”

Here’s to Future Growth (in Québec).

$TCAN Award-Winning Cannabis-Infused SolDaze Introduces New Spicy Mango Line

(CSE:TCAN: XETR: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that SolDaze, a company with which TransCanna has recently signed an LOI to acquire its business and assets (the “Acquisition”) (see May 15 press release), has begun receiving pre-orders for its new Spicy Mango line of cannabis-infused mango snacks.

SolDaze is a CBD/THC organic mango-infused snack line and has received numerous awards, including first place for packaging design and second place for infused edibles at the 2018 Emerald Cup.

“The pre-book orders for our spicy mango are tracking ahead of the pre-booked orders when we launched our original cannabis-infused mango line,” states Shawn Shevlin, president of SolDaze, Inc. “We did significant flavor profile testing to come up with a recipe that allows the flavor of the mango to not be overpowered by the spice. There is a nice, even sweetness with a mild spice kick. We feel this flavor reaches all consumers and our dispensaries that we are selling into as well as our distributors.”

Mike Bitar, co-founder of the East of Eden dispensary, states, “We are expecting the release of the SolDaze spicy mango flavor to fit nicely in our locations and largely increase the sales in the SolDaze mango line.”

Jim Pakulis, CEO of TransCanna, states, “TransCanna and SolDaze are working as expeditiously as possible to complete the acquisition of SolDaze and incorporate their lines into the TransCanna portfolio.  To help streamline this process, we’ve hired Shaun as an employee of TransCanna and are immediately able to utilize his vast knowledge in the agriculture, cannabis and branding sectors.”

$LXRP with Nanotech Delivers Increased Quantities of CBD into Brain Tissue

Kelowna, British Columbia / May 28, 2019 – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the “Company” or “Lexaria”), a drug delivery platform innovator, announces recent animal testing proves that combining Lexaria’s DehydraTECHTM delivery technology with generic nanotech techniques delivers 1,137% more cannabidiol (“CBD”) into animal brain tissue following oral ingestion than certain existing industry formulations.

BACKGROUND

On March 20, 2019, Lexaria announced it was beginning a series of animal studies with multiple objectives that included developing a better understanding of how effectively edible forms of cannabinoids cross the blood-brain-barrier (“BBB”) to enter brain tissue. Results from these studies continue to generate additional data.

In this arm of animal study, Lexaria combined its DehydraTECH delivery technology with a standard form of nanotechnology and analyzed subsequent delivery into brain tissue following oral ingestion. Lexaria earlier proved in 2018 through two series of animal tests that its DehydraTECH delivers nicotine across the BBB more effectively than industry standards. This new research sought to confirm whether the same is true for cannabinoids. Lexaria also tested for differences in brain delivery rates between its patented long chain fatty acid (“LCFA”) CBD formulations without nanotech processing with those of medium chain triglycerides (“MCT”).

TEST RESULTS

In each arm of the Lexaria animal studies, 10 male Sprague-Dawley rats were orally administered CBD at the rate of 25mg per kg of bodyweight. Delivery of CBD into the brain was reported 8 hours after dosing.

In working with nanoemulsion processing equipment, Lexaria has developed a methodology to combine DehydraTECH with nanoemulsification for specific performance applications. Lexaria does not work with inorganic materials for purposes of nano-transformation since inorganic materials manipulated with nanotech have at times indicated poor health outcomes in animal testing. Lexaria’s patented formulations rely only on Generally Recognized As Safe (“GRAS”) organic ingredients.

  • – The Lexaria DehydraTECH LCFA formulation without nanotech achieved an average brain tissue accumulation level that was 246% higher than the average for those animals that received the MCT oil formulation (p=0.0013).- The Lexaria DehydraTECH LCFA formulation WITH nanotech achieved an average brain tissue accumulation level that was 1,137% higher than the average for those animals that received the MCT oil formulation (p=0.0178).

CONCLUSION

DehydraTECH has now been proven in several series of animal tests in 2018 and 2019 to greatly assist the delivery of drugs including nicotine and cannabinoids across the BBB. Demonstration of the effectiveness of DehydraTECH together with nanoemulsification greatly expands the applicability of the technology both for conventional edible dosage forms and for consumable liquid and beverage dosage forms that are gaining ever increasing popularity.

Lexaria will make available to its licensed corporate clients throughout North America the benefits of Lexaria’s recent technological advances through existing and new technology license agreements as rapidly as it is possible to customize each unique client formulation.

The full universe of classes of drugs that might be more efficiently delivered across the BBB using DehydraTECH has not yet been quantified but, in part owing to the fact that certain profound advantages might be exploited within the pharmaceutical industry, Lexaria does expect to conduct additional work during 2019 to try to determine what some of those drug classes may be. Lexaria will utilize its wholly-owned Lexaria Pharmaceutical subsidiary to pursue opportunities outside of cannabinoids and nicotine related to more effective BBB transport of other drug classes.

About Lexaria

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. has developed and out-licenses its disruptive delivery technology that promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness of lipophilic active molecules. Lexaria has multiple patents pending in over 40 countries around the world and has patents granted in the USA and in Australia for utilization of its DehydraTECH(TM) delivery technology. Lexaria’s technology provides increases in intestinal absorption rates; more rapid delivery to the bloodstream; and important taste-masking benefits, for orally administered bioactive molecules including cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules.

$TGODF Listed Among Five of the Most Popular Cannabis Stocks to Watch in 2019

Palm Beach, FL – May 28, 2019 – It’s become tough to ignore the cannabis story.  Over the last year, Canada approved its recreational use.  More U.S. states are legalizing.  Corporate America is using CBD and hemp oil in everything from lotions and pain balm to beverages.  President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law.  Congress has even submitted a cannabis bill that could legalize cannabis at the federal level. Even better, according to Arcview Market Researcher and BDS Analytics, global spending on cannabis is expected to rocket 38% this year to $16.9 billion up from $12.2 billion in 2018.  Along the way, it’s creating sizable sales opportunity for several companies, including The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF), Aleafia Health Inc. (TSX-V:ALEF) (OTC:ALEAF), The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (OTC:TGODF), Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX-V:RIV)( OTC:CNPOF), and Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB) (OTC:CWBHF).

The Yield Growth Corp.(CSE:BOSS)(OTCQB:BOSQF) BREAKING NEWS:  The Yield Growth Corp. just announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Wright & Well, has developed a dedicated line of CBD products which are set to be manufactured in California this summer.  The collection contains less than 0.3% THC, in compliance with the US Farm Bill for legal sale across the United States.  The new Wright & Well CBD line includes CBD Full Spectrum Tinctures, Body Balm, Body Gel and Body Oil. Yield Growth approaches product development with uncompromising quality. The unique formulations of the balm, gel and oils are founded on Ayurvedic wellness principals,  and include as a key ingredient Cannabis Sativa Root Extract,  made using Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve’s patent pending extraction technology.

The CBD products will be manufactured at an FDA registered laboratory and manufacturing facility in California which follows cGMP guidelines. Yield Growth is currently building a CBD product-specific B2C e-commerce website to take consumer orders, and a B2B portal to process retail orders as well.  These orders will be routed through Yield Growth’s existing enterprise resource planning system, which will then generate shipping orders to a fulfillment center in California. This development will be built using the underlying architecture of the recently launched fully functional e-commerce platform www.urbanjuve.com.

“The supply chain and manufacturing and fulfillment processes we have set up in California are scalable and will allow us to manufacture and sell many CBD products beyond our Wright & Well brand,” says Penny Green, Yield Growth CEO, “Within a few months we will have product manufacturing and distribution channels set up for all 3 legal streams in the cannabis industry: non-cannabinoid hemp, hemp derived CBD, and full THC.  We are now in talks with potential licensing and joint venture partners to allow us to grow our business at an accelerated rate.”  For more information about BOSS, please visit:  https://yieldgrowth.com/investors/

Other cannabis-related developments from around the markets include:

It will contain the company’s branded Symbl oils, oral sprays and dried flower products. The value of the Order is expected to generate proceeds from the sale of cannabis exceeding $0.7 million. In the first 38 days of Q2 2019, including the revenue to be obtained from the Order, the Company has received adult-use cannabis product orders from three Canadian provincial governments of over $1.2 million in gross revenue, representing significant growth when compared to the sale of cannabis revenues generated during 2018. “We are extremely pleased to report the largest ever cannabis sale in our Company’s history,” said Aleafia Health CEO Geoffrey Benic. “Furthermore, with our Niagara Greenhouse and Outdoor Grow expansion in a plant-ready state, the assets are now in place to scale our cannabis health and wellness vision exponentially and build on today’s results.”

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd.(TSX:TGOD)(OTCQX:TGODF) just obtained approval from Health Canada, under the Cannabis Regulations, to expand operations into its new state-of-the-art building located in Hamilton, Ontario. The 20,000 square feet indoor facility is going to be used for cannabis cultivation; planting will start in the coming weeks.  “This is yet another important milestone for our team as we continue to ramp up production with a focus on executional excellence,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD. “We have pioneered the concept of sustainably growing all-natural, certified organic cannabis at scale. The product we are able to offer Canadians is clean, pesticide-free and undeniably premium.” The newly built facility is the second of three buildings at TGOD’s Hamilton site, which will have a total size of 166,000 square feet when all are completed later this summer, and an annual production capacity of 17,500 kgs.
