Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS) Gearing Up to Grow More than 200,000 Square Feet of Product

  • Supply shortfalls bedevil California cannabis
  • NUGS on the lookout for grow facilities with existing infrastructure
  • Cultivation capability expected to complement retail and distribution divisions

The decision by enterprising California outfit Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) to enter the cannabis cultivation space could not have come at a better time (http://ibn.fm/dllEt). Supply in California is struggling to satisfy demand, resulting in a shortage of compliant product statewide. Even though the supply bottleneck is not entirely unexpected given the size of California’s market, which is projected to cross the $5 billion mark by 2019, it has been aggravated by new, tighter regulations that, very likely, resulted in the recall and destruction of product already on the market. As a result, additions to supply like those being planned by NUGS will be welcomed by consumers, who have been beset not only by product shortages, but also by limited choice and high prices (http://ibn.fm/Q3vZP).

Cannabis Strategic Ventures has already embarked on pre-acquisition due diligence for prospective cultivation properties located in states that have legalized cannabis. The company has identified several cannabis grow facilities in California and has begun analyzing these for possible acquisition. It is targeting several locations with areas exceeding 200,000 square feet that have existing cultivation infrastructure in place, since it wants to move into cultivation very quickly. NUGS believes that an involvement in cultivation will allow it to realize synergies that will reduce costs and augment the benefits offered by its retail brands. The acquisition of grow facilities will strengthen the strategy of vertical integration and diversification. NUGS plans to operate in the cannabis HR space, leveraging the institutional expertise of the Worldwide Staffing Group, which it is in talks to acquire. The cannabis staffing services will be under the aegis of subsidiary BudHire.

Through another subsidiary – Pure Applied Sciences (PAS) – NUGS markets the PureOrganix brand. This is a line of high quality concentrate, organic and pure cannabis oils that conform to Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and meet FDA guidelines for Active Pharmaceuticals Ingredients (API). PAS has started production of Halo Filters, a patent pending, cannabis smoke filtration pre-roll cone. The Halo Filters line is based on an internally developed filtering technology that utilizes ultra-high quality fibers and proprietary manufacturing methodologies. Halo Filters reduce the harsh taste in cannabis smoke, as well as the levels of harmful chemicals, heavy metals and other toxins, while maintaining optimum taste and cannabinoid levels. Cannabis smoke can contain up to eight times the cyanide, three times the ammonia and two times the nitrous oxide of tobacco smoke.

NUGS has also cut an agreement to acquire the Fitamins CBD brand (http://ibn.fm/QgeZO). Products under the brand consist of vitamin- and hemp-derived CBD formulations, which will be distributed through Fitamins’ network of 600+ wholesalers catering to the Asian-American market. The agreement between the companies calls for Fitamins to produce a proprietary CBD product as part of NUGS’ brand portfolio, initially targeting United States distribution networks and eventually expanding into Asian markets that have legalized CBD products.

NUGS has now completed the acquisition of The Asher House Pet CBD brand, a line of U.S. hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) supplements for pets that has been garnering national attention. Increased market share and revenues are expected as NUGS provides the infrastructure to support enhanced marketing programs. With a finger in so many cannabis pies, NUGS is sure to find some that are good to the taste.

  • For three months ended August 31, 2018, core investor relations and subscription sales generated $497,560, or 70 percent of CIIX’s $712,360 total revenue
  • Warren Wang, CEO of CIIX, eyes greater FY2019 distribution of industrial hemp-based CBD products, both domestically and in China, for CBD Biotech enterprise
  • SeeThruEquity, LLC, in update, sees CIIX as having upside potential if it can achieve renewed traction on investor relations and execute on cannabis and cryptocurrency strategies

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc.’s (OTCQB: CIIX) core businesses of investor relations and subscriptions drove 70 percent of its 1Q19 revenues, the company reported. It also had 70 percent higher YOY sales for its first quarter (http://ibn.fm/niMS4). At the same time, CIIX sees CBD Biotech, its wholly-owned foreign enterprise, delivering higher CBD product distribution in FY2019, both domestically and in China. It also reported an 800 percent increase in product sales led by ChineseHempOil.com, Inc. in 1Q19.

The CBD division, which includes CBD Biotech, Hemp Logic, Inc. and ChineseHempOil.com, Inc. (http://ibn.fm/fQa2J), is expected to deliver greater CBD product distribution due to larger marketing resources supplied by the company and an improved business, regulatory and political landscape in China, the company said. Prior, CIIX had also detailed plans to spin off its CBD division in the future.

CIIX presented at the National Investment Banking Association (NIBA) investment conference held at the Crowne Plaza Times Square hotel in New York City on October 31-November 1. It discussed its first quarter 2019 performance.

“CBD hemp sales in China continue to be the foundation of our focus. Our subscription services will continue to provide a steady revenue stream along with the new educational services covering the cryptocurrency market.” Wang said in a news release. “With increased marketing resources devoted to our industrial hemp-based CBD products, we anticipate a productive fiscal year 2019.”

CIIX in 1Q19 reported a YOY increase of $90,000 from its subscription revenues. Investor relations and subscriptions represent its business roots. CIIX is a diverse company with an international audience of Chinese-speaking investors. It is active in cryptocurrency education and the cannabis industry.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) Developing Products for Healthy Changes in the Lives of Individuals

  • Offering women affordable, discreet and anonymous testing for sexually transmitted infections
  • Formulating a full spectrum CBD beverage focused on immunity with possible benefits to cancer treatment
  • Providing a unique product line for optimal relaxation, enhanced focus and assistance with nicotine reduction therapy

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) is a biotech company developing and marketing health-oriented CBD products and continually expanding its product line to positively change individual lives. The company is doing this through the creation of products like its Hygee medical devices, a CBD beverage and KannaBidoiD products.

Hygee medical devices provide women access to cost-effective testing while protecting their privacy. This self-sampling kit allows woman to discreetly test for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Similar to a feminine hygiene panty liner, the device is worn for four hours to collect a cervical cell sample. Once collected, the sample is then mailed to the Procrea Fertility lab where it is tested for STIs. This is a positive step forward for women who lack easy access to health care and desire an anonymous, discreet means of testing. The device has already been proven successful in detecting chlamydia and is being tested for similar results for gonorrhea. In the near future, testing will be added for additional STIs and non-STI infections.

ETST has started formulating a full spectrum CBD beverage focused on immunity. The company is utilizing its University of Central Oklahoma Provisional Patent with the help of Dr. Aube, his advisory team and current manufacturing operations near its headquarters (http://ibn.fm/HLclV).

A study conducted by the University in 2015 found that ETST’s hemp oil solution, used in appropriate CBD concentrations, had the ability to stimulate important immune cells called macrophages.  According to a press release from January 26, 2015 (http://ibn.fm/Jb0v2), lead investigator Dr. Wei R. Chen and his team believed that “the effects of hemp oil enriched with CBD on immune cells may be used to improve cancer treatment, particularly in combination with other treatment modalities.”

ETST has a unique product line called KannaBidoiD (KBD). KBD is a formulation of Kanna and CBD that is distributed in CBD infused edibles and vape products. Kanna is believed to decrease anxiety and, when combined with ETST’s CBD, provides optimal relaxation and enhanced focus while assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.

ETST offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade cannabinoids on the market. It aims to bring to market therapies for the treatment of certain targeted medical conditions, putting individuals’ health back into their own hands.

Payment Technology Developer Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) Helps the World Meet its Money Flow Needs

  • Net Element payment processing tech options assist industries according to individualized needs
  • Partnership with Russian bank set to boost country’s aging financial network
  • Most recent reports show growing net revenues as company prioritizes market needs close to home

In a world where emerging business enterprises are continually searching for ways to move money when the businesses don’t fully conform to the rigid expectations of the banking and lending community, payment processing technology providers such as Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) are helping to keep markets flowing on a global scale and providing a foundation for investors to stand on as they uphold entire industries.

Net Element’s decision to join its mobile payments operations with multi-channel subsidiary PayOnline increased its ability to serve small and medium-sized businesses and their customers with a growing number of payment options. The company works to adapt its platform so it can fit the individual needs of store front businesses and unbanked and web-based enterprises — all of which serve their customers in a variety of different ways.

While the company has scaled back its European activities, its recently announced partnership with Sputnik Bank in Russia to provide third-party bank processing to other banks throughout the country (http://ibn.fm/SefZV) shows its ability to work in the international arena and its drive to establish financial services wherever the need presents itself.

“We believe this is the first bank to provide a wholesale service to other Russian banks and if executed properly could be a huge success,” the company stated in a news release. “In the future, this entity could even be spun off into its own independent fintech company like many of the banks in the US have done.”

The news release added the company’s belief that all of Russia’s banks use in-house systems, many of which have not been upgraded to modern standards since the systems were created in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution in the early ‘90s.

“Sputnik is expected to move its own in-house system over to this venture and will sell the processing service to small banks, third-party vendors, value-added resellers, credit organizations and sales organizations. Due to economies of scale of bank and payment processing, one large entity can more efficiently manage a system and the smaller banks will be able to outsource their IT at what is expected to be a much lower cost,” the company continued.

Closer to home, Net Element’s VIP Payments solution offers technological capabilities to hotel and tourism industry enterprises (http://ibn.fm/qLgmf); Netevia offers a subscription-based, transparent online payments solution for brick and mortar businesses’ e-commerce and B2B needs (http://ibn.fm/oDv91); Aptito provides support to the restaurant industry (http://ibn.fm/roG0r); and Unified Mobile Payments is designed with the kiosk and truck vendor in mind (http://ibn.fm/uB0ji).

“We work directly with payment card networks and banks so that our merchants do not need to manage the complex systems, rules, and requirements of the payments industry,” the company stated in its most recent 10-Q quarterly report.

Net Element’s 8-K report issued during the same period states that the company had a net revenues increase of $16.46 million for the three months ended June 30 of this year, which was an increase of two percent over the second quarter of 2017. The company’s net revenues for the six months leading up to the most recent reporting was up nine percent over the previous year to $32.45 million.
