Inaugural Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS) and True Promise Beauty CBD-Based Product Line Set to Be Launched by Year-End 2018

  • The first products resulting from the joint venture between Cannabis Strategic Ventures and True Promise Beauty are scheduled to be launched by the end of 2018
  • The CBD-based luxury cosmetics line will feature face, skin and hair care products
  • These products feature innovative formulations that aren’t currently available; the two companies hope to achieve strategic success in a constantly expanding luxury skin care market

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) and True Promise Beauty have announced the development of LYXR – a new line of cannabidiol (CBD)-based luxury skin and hair care products. The entire LYXR line will be developed from ingredients like hemp-derived phytocannabinoids and other natural components, according to a company announcement on September 20, 2018 (http://ibn.fm/KSKKD).

Cannabis Strategic Ventures and True Promise Beauty will first launch a face mask that is made from a CBD isolate. The applications of CBD in the cosmetic industry are numerous. Cannabidiol is believed to have anti-aging hydrating properties, as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Upon the full development of the LYXR range, the line will feature face, hair and skin care products. According to an official announcement, LYXR products will become available for purchase in early winter 2018.

The news came as a week earlier, on September 13, 2018, Cannabis Strategic Ventures and True Promise Beauty announced a strategic partnership aimed at the development of innovative skincare products. Under the terms and conditions of the agreement, Cannabis Strategic Venture acquired access to a proprietary hemp-derived CBD-infused formula developed by True Promise Beauty. In addition, the company gained access to well-established distribution channels (http://ibn.fm/i0Ywi).

Cannabis Strategic Ventures CEO Simon Yu said in a news release that LYXR provides an amazing opportunity for the introduction of cannabis science in the world of luxury cosmetic products. According to True Promise Beauty President Gail Johnson, the partnership will create a product line that’s brand new to the marketplace. CBD, combined with viable cosmetic formulas developed by experienced chemists, could potentially revolutionize the topical approach to skincare, haircare and body care, Johnson said.

A 2017 report suggests that the global personal care product market is bound to grow to $650.1 billion by 2024 (http://ibn.fm/QYIwv). The face mask market alone is forecast to register an increase of $8 billion by 2020.

LYXR’s initial distribution will target existing distribution networks in the U.S. Product developers believe that the scientifically-proven benefits of CBD will enable cosmetics developers to enter a new era marked by innovative proprietary formulas.

Based in Los Angeles, California, Cannabis Strategic Ventures focuses on supporting entrepreneurial growth within the legal cannabis industry. The company has a selective portfolio of subsidiaries aimed at offering outsourced personnel solutions that are tailor-made to address the needs of various companies specializing in the sector, including cultivators, dispensaries, manufacturers and other cannabis market areas.

True Promise Beauty was founded by Gail Johnson, an Emmy-nominated makeup artist. Johnson’s primary aim was to develop high quality products that even actors and actresses could use to get instantaneous skin rejuvenation. The company has well-established distribution channels with companies such as L’Oréal (OTC: LRLCY), Beauty Systems Group and Salon Centric.

Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) Payments Platform Supports Omni-Channel Marketing

  • The spread of digital devices is promoting omni-channel marketing
  • Customers want the convenience of paying any which way
  • NETE platforms handle over 100 different payment options in over 40 currencies
  • Company intends to launch subscription-based payment processing with Payment Club, Inc.

The days when retailers waited hopefully for customers to visit their High Street locations are long gone. In this digital age, consumers are pursued and wooed wherever they congregate, which could be a news site, an online forum or a social media platform. They may be using a desktop, a tablet, or, very likely, a smartphone – different devices that require different configurations for accepting payments. As a result, the retailer whose shopping cart can only accept orders from one of these will be missing out, while his savvy competitor, using a service from Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE), offers a smooth, seamless shopping experience to customers. Net Element is a global fintech provider with technology that facilitates acceptance of electronic payments in an omni-channel environment.

Our shopping expeditions are decidedly different from those undertaken by Mom and Pop. Research by Google (http://ibn.fm/6bIu4) reveals “that consumers want more information and customized experiences during their shopping journey: Two in three shoppers who tried to find information within a store say they didn’t find what they needed, and 43% of them left frustrated. And 71% of in-store shoppers who use smartphones for online research say their device has become more important to their in-store experience.”

The evolution and spread of digital devices has fundamentally altered our approach to commerce. Importantly, consumers now rely on their PCs and smartphones to “window shop” products. After this initial research, actual sales may be realized in a variety of ways.

Regardless of the channel, Net Element has a platform to handle it. The solutions offered by the company enable merchants of all sizes to accept and process over 100 different payment options in more than 40 currencies, including credit, debit and prepaid payments. Net Element also provides merchants with value-added services and technologies, including integrated payment technologies, point-of-sale solutions, security solutions, fraud management, information solutions and analytical tools.

Net Element owns and operates the following subsidiaries:

  • Digital Provider – A leading provider of SMS messaging and mobile billing solutions
  • Aptito – A next-generation, all-in-one, cloud-based restaurant management and point-of-sale payments platform using wireless technology
  • PayOnline – A fully integrated, processor-agnostic electronic commerce platform
  • Unified Payments – An award-winning, customized mobile billing and payments solution, recognized by Inc. Magazine as the No. 1 Fastest Growing Company in America in 2012

Recently, Net Element announced that its Unified Payments division had, through its partnership with an institutional investor, arranged a $5 million credit facility for Payment Club to drive its growth initiatives (http://ibn.fm/5N6JC). Unified Payments will soon be launching subscription-based payment processing services through the alliance with Payment Club, Inc., expanding its services in cashless payment acceptance.

Tilray, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: TLRY) Status as Global Pioneer in Cannabis Production, Distribution Reinforced by Earnings, Growth

  • First medical cannabis producer in North America to meet rigorous standards of GMP certification, supplying cannabis flower and extracts
  • Canadian federally-licensed cannabis cultivator, processor and distributor
  • Q2 2018 revenue increased to $9.7 million, up 95.2 percent over second quarter of 2017
  • Multinational distribution network makes Tilray medical cannabis available to patients in 11 countries on five continents
  • Raised $163.6 million in a successful IPO in July 2018 and $55 million from leading institutional investors prior to IPO
  • Agreements signed to supply medical cannabis via Canadian pharmacies and recreational cannabis to adult-use consumers in seven Canadian provinces and territories
  • Received U.S. government approval to import cannabinoid study drug to UC San Diego for clinical trial for treatment of essential tremor, a neurological disorder

Tilray, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY), a global pioneer in cannabis research, cultivation, production and distribution, continues to build an international footprint in the cannabis space with a long list of “firsts” in the cannabis industry. As one of only a few cannabis companies with a U.S. stock listing, Tilray’s stock has been a favorite of investors, soaring more than 10-fold since its initial public offering in July. Tilray’s diverse management team of industry leading experts includes PhD research scientists, master horticulturalists, engineers and patient advocates, in addition to backing by billionaire investor Peter Thiel.

Tilray’s aggressive pursuit of agreements to supply premium cannabis products to not only the Canadian market, which is poised to become the first G7 country to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide in October, but to any country that has legalized cannabis. Among its most recent announcements, the company has:

  • Executed a non-binding letter of intent with IntelGenx Corp. to co-develop and commercialize oral film products infused with recreational and medical cannabis (http://ibn.fm/OAFLK)
  • Received approval from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to import a medical cannabis supply drug for a clinical trial on essential tremor at the University of California San Diego Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research (http://ibn.fm/dXv4s)
  • Regulatory permits approved for export to Germany of medical cannabis flower and full-spectrum medical cannabis oil for patient use (http://ibn.fm/BAgNU)
  • Currently supplying products for several different clinical trials in partnership with universities, hospitals and governments in Australia and Canada (http://ibn.fm/gIv0T)
  • Established wholly owned subsidiary High Park Company to produce and distribute a broad-based portfolio of cannabis brands and products in Canada; an investment totaling $100 million that’s expected to grow the company’s Canadian workforce to more than 500 in the next several years

In Deloitte’s 2018 cannabis report (http://ibn.fm/4vTb5), the research firm frames the total cannabis market in Canada as “significant” and one that has “spurred innovation, entrepreneurship and jobs.” Canada’s medical and recreational cannabis market is expected to generate $7.17 billion in total sales in 2019.

Brendan Kennedy, president and chief executive officer of Tilray, notes the company’s strong start to 2018 and offers insight to its future plans in a second quarter earnings report to stakeholders (http://ibn.fm/WNKql).

“Tilray is well-positioned to continue to pioneer the development of the global medical cannabis market and to become a leader in the adult-use cannabis market in Canada,” Kennedy states in the report. “In the second quarter, we generated significant revenue growth as a result of our global strategy, our multinational distribution network and our commitment to research, innovation, quality and operational excellence.”

Financial highlights in the report include an increase in revenue to $9.7 million, up 95.2 percent compared to the second quarter of 2017; a 97 percent increase in total kilogram equivalents sold compared to the prior year; and an average net selling price per gram increase from $6.20 to $6.38.

Business highlights in 2018 to date show Tilray’s successful IPO and funding received from institutional investors that brought $218.6 million to the company; signed agreements to supply cannabis to adult-use consumers in seven Canadian provinces and territories and signed strategic agreements with Sandoz Canada, a division of Novartis, to collaborate on the creation and sale of co-branded and co-developed non-combustible medical cannabis products. Agreements or LOIs were also signed with Shoppers Drug Mart Inc., Canada’s largest pharmacy chain, and Pharmasave, one of Canada’s leading independent pharmacy chains, to provide Tilray products once certain legal steps have been met.

Exports to Argentina, South Africa and the United Kingdom now make Tilray products available in 11 countries on five continents. The company also launched High Park Holdings Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary formed to serve the pending adult-use market in Canada, in addition to the launch of the CANACA brand, which celebrates the historic moment in Canada as it becomes the first G7 nation to federally legalize cannabis for adult-use.

Tilray’s company culture promotes experience, precision, research and care for its customers and clients. Its precisely formulated products are cultivated to meet exacting patient needs and come in two primary forms – extracts and dried flower. Tilray’s product line centers on active ingredients and standardized, well-defined preparations with a focus on patient safety and efficacy. The company’s clinical research program is designed to evolve current scientific understanding of the therapeutic value and risks of cannabinoid-based medicines. Tilray’s flagship production facility is located in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) Expands North American Footprint for Chinese-Language News, CBD Product Market

  • ChineseInvestors.com sees astounding 28,859 percent revenue growth in CBD product brands
  • Company tapping into economic potential of huge ethnic Chinese population in China and North America
  • Company delivers education and analysis in Chinese on all aspects of cryptocurrency production and trade

A financial information company dedicated to empowering Chinese-speaking investors and building on the market potential of cannabis-infused health and wellness products is announcing the expansion of its footprint in North America with the opening of offices in eastern Canada. ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) issued a news release on September 17 stating that it now has a sales and support office in Richmond, British Columbia, in addition to its headquarters in San Gabriel, California, and other corporate satellites in New York City and Shanghai.

The new British Columbia offices are located in the heart of Richmond’s busy financial district in the Pacific Business Centre, a prime location in close proximity to major Canadian banks, SkyTrain stations, shopping plazas and the neighboring Service Canada Centre, according to the news release (http://ibn.fm/fKGtp).

“With 54% of Richmond, British Columbia’s population representing individuals of Chinese ethnicity, we are in the optimal Canadian location to serve our target market,” CEO Warren Wang stated in the release, noting ChineseInvestors.com’s “long history of delivering quality, innovative subscription and educational services to Chinese globally.”

China’s citizens comprise the world’s largest national population — estimated this month to be at over 1.4 million people or 18.54 percent of the total planet’s population, according to the United Nations (http://ibn.fm/QVLdp). Ethnic Chinese people’s presence in North America mirrors their global anthropological status — they make up the largest subset of the diverse Asian American community (http://ibn.fm/ArsNy) and are collectively a potential economic engine.

ChineseInvestors.com is focused on delivering market analysis and education in the Chinese language to assist investors striving to participate in market activity. In November, the company launched a news and investment education portal covering strategies and opportunities to capitalize on the rising star of cryptocurrency and blockchain markets, including trading guidelines, market commentary and analysis. After the beginning of the new year, the company began producing a daily cryptocurrency video newscast in Chinese in conjunction with independent news agency Wall Street Multimedia.

ChineseInvestors.com’s fiscal year-end report adds that the company’s gross operating revenues experienced a 41 percent year-over-year increase primarily as a result of consumer product sales tied to its subsidiaries’ hemp brands. Its hemp oil and liquor products were the primary reason its sales grew from $1,308 the previous May to $377,719 this year — an astounding 28,859 percent increase. Revenues from the company’s cryptocurrency brands grew from $19,453 to $206,648 during the year (http://ibn.fm/VP0OL).

The company plans to establish a cryptocurrency ATM network with an online coin-to-coin exchange for Chinese cryptocurrency investors, and to dedicate more resources to marketing its hemp-based CBD products as the government regulatory climate continues to yield to popular clamor for greater legalization of hemp as an agricultural commodity. Eventually, ChineseInvestors.com expects to spin off its CBD division, ChineseHempOil.com, Inc. In the meantime, the company has set its sights on moving into more U.S. states, Toronto and Japan, Wang told MoneyTV (http://ibn.fm/CQTPf).

Wang said that he hopes the CBD spinoff will take place by year-end as part of a drive to list on the OTC or a national exchange such as Nasdaq in the coming months.

“We intend to continue to expand our consumer division by dedicating more resources to marketing hemp-based CBD products both domestically and in China,” Wang stated in the interview. “At the same time, we will continue to offer our core financial subscription services with a focus on increasing subscription revenues through targeted marketing of the Company’s new cryptocurrency subscription services and educational products.”

  • Global mining waste management market expected to reach 233.56 billion tons by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.1 percent from 2017-2022

TMSR Holding Company Limited (NASDAQ: TMSR), together with its subsidiaries, is providing a clear choice for companies producing industrial solid waste in China that are looking for a clean alternative to traditional waste disposal. Recognized as an industry leader in the research, development, production and sale of solid waste recycling systems and zero emissions process systems for the industrial and mining sectors in the People’s Republic of China, TMSR operates through its wholly owned business divisions: Shengrong Environmental and Wuhan HOST Coating Materials.

The solid waste recycling industry in China continues to grow, even after the Chinese government banned the import of 24 categories of recyclables and solid waste by the end of 2017. The country’s high demand for limited resources, rising concerns about the environment and urbanization are fueling the industry’s growth. Revenue for the solid waste recycling industry in China grew at an annualized rate of 13.5 percent from 2014-2018 to an estimated $16.2 billion, according to an industry report issued by IBISWorld (http://ibn.fm/fzCYM).

Shengrong’s patented equipment can process aluminum slag, copper mine tailings, iron mine tailings, red mud manganese tailings and molybdenum tailings, among many others. Unlike traditional chemical-based recovery methods, the company extracts resalable metals from the waste without generating any pollution. The residues are processed to manufacture high-quality construction materials, turning polluted solid waste into valuable industrial materials with zero discharge (http://ibn.fm/wQvZJ).

Trends of industrial waste recycling include innovative business models and disruptive technologies including “green technologies” such as those offered by TMSR. By supporting principles of sustainability, TMSR provides end users in the solid waste recycling markets a clean alternative that significantly reduces solid waste discharge into the environment, reducing energy use and pollution while creating value for businesses and extending products’ life-cycles.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) Sees Uplisting to OTCQB Venture Market as Key to Goal of being Global Leader in Cannabinoid Market

  • Biotech company is focused on becoming a worldwide leader in R&D and sale of hemp-derived, CBD-based nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements
  • ETST is developing three new CBD formulas in Canada under a provisory patent; it is also clinical testing its Hygee medical device for detecting sexually transmitted diseases in women
  • With its Form 10 Registration Statement filing now effective, ETST will begin reporting annual, quarterly and periodic financial statements

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) anticipates that its uplisting to the OTCQB Venture Market will enable it to reach global recognition and increase liquidity as a leader in the hemp-based CBD space in several fields, such as cannabinoid products. It also develops innovative medical devices designed for multi-national marketing (http://ibn.fm/IArhk).

The Florida-based company seeks to raise its recognition level and perform more R&D for the CBD industry. ETST manufactures, markets and distributes its own cannabinoid products, including capsules and oils. It is a leader in the medical cannabis markets, with its products available at retail health food stores and e-liquid smoke shops.

“Historically, up-listing to the OTCQB and being fully reporting has resulted in greater liquidity and awareness,” Nickolas S. Tabraue, president, director and chairman of ETST, stated in a news release (http://ibn.fm/kFLuV). “We are committed to the higher level of corporate and financial disclosures required as an OTCQB fully reporting company, demonstrating our commitment to our loyal shareholders.”

Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI) Coffee Business Takes to the High Seas, Boosts Profits

  • Two-year contract brings company’s CLR Roasters coffee brand to patrons, crews of international cruise line
  • YGYI CEO appointed to board of directors of Direct Selling Association, a national trade organization representing direct selling industry
  • Q1 2018 revenues rose by 11 percent over Q1 2017 at $43 million, with gross profits increasing to $25 million
  • YGYI enters $7.7 billion cannabis market with HempFX product line

Leading omni-direct lifestyle company Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI) is making enviable strides among several sectors of the direct selling industry as it expands its brands and offerings in multiple markets. Among the latest highlights is an expansion into the lucrative cruise line industry with the signing of a two-year contract to provide the company’s CLR Roasters coffee to over 60,000 crew members serving on 60 ships, along with passengers of three luxury cruise ships, a company press release states (http://ibn.fm/mlaSV).

“We are very proud of the footprint we have established in the cruise line industry and this new contract establishes us as a worldwide player in the space. We are hopeful that this relationship will lead to other opportunities among this prestigious operator’s other six cruise line brands,” Ernesto Aguila, president of CLR and founder of the Café La Rica Brand, stated in the news release. “We are quite enthusiastic about this opportunity to expose our coffee and custom blends to such a large organization.”

CLR Roasters LLC is a fully integrated coffee business with multiple brands including Café La Rica, the official “Cafecito” of the Miami Marlins, and Jose’s Java House, a single serve consumer brand. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, CLR Roasters owns two coffee plantations and a wet and dry processing mill located in the high mountains of Matagalpa, Nicaragua, that’s able to process over 30 million pounds of green coffee on an annual basis. Coffee produced by CLR Roasters is certified by numerous organizations to ensure that its exquisite quality, phenomenal taste and environmental sustainability exceeds industry standards, as the company notes on its website

Created through the 2011 merger of Youngevity Essential Life Sciences with Javalution® Coffee Company, today’s Youngevity International Inc. is a virtual worldwide Main Street of products and services under one corporate entity that supports a healthy and empowered lifestyle. Among the Top 100 Global Direct Selling Companies, Youngevity offers products from the six top selling retail categories, including health/nutrition, home/family, food/beverage (including coffee), spa/beauty, apparel/jewelry and a range of innovative services.

Youngevity has also introduced a new line of three proprietary blends of hemp-derived cannabinoid products – Soothe, Relax and Uplift – that gives the company a foothold in the $7.7 billion cannabis market. The company expects to introduce the HempFX (Trademarked) product line to the public soon, with the official launch anticipated to take place by October 2018, a news release states (http://ibn.fm/apRnO).

“Hemp-derived cannabidiol aligns with what we do very well,” Steve Wallach, CEO of Youngevity, stated in the news release. “We’ve taken what we know about essential nutrients, along with decades of knowledge specializing in natural, plant-based nutrition and their most beneficial nutrients and put that knowledge to work to develop high-end cannabidiol products.”

As a testament to Youngevity’s success and influence in the direct selling industry, Wallach was recently appointed to the Direct Selling Association (“DSA”) board of directors. With nearly three decades of sales and network marketing experience, Wallach has successfully guided Youngevity from a domestic seller to a worldwide marketer of products and services that support a healthy and empowered lifestyle. Youngevity’s Q1 2018 revenues increased 11 percent over Q1 2017 at $43 million, while total company revenues in FY 2017 were recorded at $165.7 million, according to a July 2018 investor relations fact sheet (http://ibn.fm/Z4Agf).

“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve on the DSA Board of Directors,” Wallach stated in a news release (http://ibn.fm/iwm6P). “I look forward to helping advance the association’s global membership initiatives and being at the forefront of positive change in our industry.”

The DSA is a national trade association that represents the direct selling industry and advocates on behalf of its 200-plus member companies. Its board consists of 22 industry leaders who serve as officers and directors, as nominated and elected by their peers. In addition to leading and directing the affairs of the association, board members are charged specifically with promoting the DSA code of ethics. Board leadership also carries government relations, education and research responsibilities.
