Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) Caps a Year of Achievement by Doubling Revenues

  • Portfolio of hemp-derived CBD products
  • Opening of new production facilities
  • New subsidiaries, acquisitions and joint ventures

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTC: ETST) is celebrating another year of accomplishment. In 2017, the company churned out a series of advancements that included the launch of new subsidiaries and products and an acquisition, along with entry into marketing, manufacturing and distribution agreements. It also commenced pre-launch human trials of a new product designed to join the fight against opioid addiction. As a result, 2017 revenues were almost twice as much as in 2016. Now, even though the stock is trading at around $1.00, a price target of over $4.00 has been set.

Earth Science is making waves in the hemp-derived cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device markets. The company’s activities range from R&D to production to marketing and distribution. It continues to build the networks and infrastructure to launch new products, embarking on a number of joint ventures and acquisitions, and launching new subsidiaries. It has created a new division, Cannabis Therapeutic Inc., to develop proprietary cannabinoid-based nutraceuticals and pharmaceutical products based on its existing CBD patent.

The company also acquired Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., which will allow it access to Canadian government grants. Grant applications have already been filed, and the company anticipates that its first request will be approved in Q1 2018. Earth Science expects that, through this new subsidiary, about half of all R&D expenditures will be covered by grants. A joint venture with Karmavore SuperFood is set to manufacture a new chocolate product, and one with Varsity Group, LLC, a kanna ingredient based e-liquid company, will give Earth Science a presence in the recreational vape/smoke market. Kanna, widely consumed in South Africa, is thought to decrease anxiety.

With these platforms in place, the ETST pipeline is filled with goodies like the CBD Organic Chocolate line and the Strawberry Orange Blossom CBD oil, as well as a pet CBD oil. Earth Science also plans to create two new cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three new advanced cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products in collaboration with Smart Medicine, Inc. an independent laboratory based at Le Centre Québecois d’Innovation en Biotechnologie (“CQIB”) in Laval, Québec. In addition, Earth Science is developing proprietary prophylactic therapies to prevent breast cancer, and a treatment to help women with aggressive breast cancer. Additionally, seizing on an opportunity to enter the recreational vape/smoke market, the company launched a new wholly-owned subsidiary, KannaBidioid Inc., in its joint venture with Varsity Group, LLC, to manufacture and distribute vapes/e-liquids and gummy edibles.

In 2017, new manufacturing and shipping facilities were opened. Earth Science commenced leasing a manufacturing facility for the production of the MSN-2 medical device and began the first round of negotiations with foreign health authorities for commercialization of the product. MSN-2, designed to protect women and their future babies from chlamydia, will be launched in 2018 in select countries. In addition, ETST signed an agreement with the Centre de Développement Bioalimentaire du Québec (“CDBQ”), a major force in the agro-food industry in Canada. Based in La Pocatière, Quebec, CDBQ specializes in helping companies develop the processes needed to take a prototype agro-food or nutraceutical product to industrial-scale production for the marketplace. CDBQ boasts a bio-food incubator, which encompasses a 30,000 square foot, $10 million facility that houses seven separate factories equipped with cutting-edge equipment and technology.

Earth Science is also working with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) to conduct an amini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device enters molecular diagnostic trials. The company has started pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD oil mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels.

The hemp-derived CBD market is projected to grow at a CAGR of about 53 percent until 2020, positioning it as the fastest-growing sub-segment within the multi-billion dollar legal cannabis and hemp market. With an eye on that expanding market, ETST plans to launch a Regulation A+ Tier 2 round of financing in 2018. The goal will be to raise $4 million to complete all planned projects.

These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.

Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.

The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) Sees Golden Opportunity in Arkansas Brine Fields

  • Standard Lithium recently completed option agreement on 33,000-acre lease in longtime commodities-producing region
  • Company expects existing historical data to streamline quick turnaround in resource estimates
  • Lithium exploration gaining popularity as tech industry companies seek to shore up supply lines
  • Recent drilling order announcement clearly puts Administration on side of energy industry

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) is exploring the possibility that oil resource-rich Southern Arkansas could become a large source of lithium amid demands for the modern tech commodity.

Since 1920, the Smackover region’s oil fields near the state’s boundary with Louisiana have been a major employer, even though the boom years ended about a decade after the first large discovery. The oilfield brine byproduct was long considered a nuisance, but, in time, it came to be celebrated for chemicals with fire-retardant properties. Following a second round of mineral exploration, Arkansas has become the world’s largest producer of bromine.

A modern need to augment the scarce mineral resources that make up the high-tech, high-efficiency lithium-ion batteries in so many mobile phones and other Internet-connected consumer electronics, as well as electric vehicles, is fueling what could become a game-changing third round of mineral excitement in the region. Automakers and other companies competing in a global marketplace are jostling with each other to secure a steady supply chain well before an actual need for more lithium-ion battery components exists.

Lithium-ion batteries are also significant players in mass storage systems for electrical power grid operators. As the systems look for longer capacity in their storage technology, lithium is expected to remain a key player (http://dtn.fm/uHC8w), particularly as the cost of the batteries continues to fall. However, electric vehicles and governmental demands for ‘clean energy’ are expected to dominate the market for the batteries in the coming decade or more.

Standard Lithium, which considers part of its mission to minimize resource and political risks in its exploration efforts, considers the 33,000 acres of Smackover Formation brine leases it signed an option agreement for this month to be fertile ground, given the area’s long history of brine production; significant existing infrastructure; access to roads, power and water; and the trained workforce in the region, as well as its existing brine extraction, processing and re-injection permitting regime.

“Due to the wealth of already-available data from our new project area, we can start the process of compiling a maiden resource estimate for this large lease package extremely quickly, with a minimum of additional intrusive investigation,” President and COO Andy Robinson stated in a news release about the agreement issued on January 8 (http://dtn.fm/Pgrm1).

The existing infrastructure and data would allow Standard Lithium its best chance of quickly adding resources to its assets.

The company states that Arkansas produces the equivalent of 42.6 million cubic meters, or 9.38 billion gallons, of brine per year, based on the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission’s reported average brine production from between 2010 and 2016. Almost all of those billions of gallons of brine came from the Smackover Formation.

The Smackover Formation itself extends through Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, and it has produced billions of barrels of brines during the last eight decades from an “extensive and extremely well characterized” aquifer, according to the company’s analysis.

Standard Lithium also has a significant lithium exploration project under way in Southern California’s Mojave Desert. Having a large domestic source for lithium-ion batteries would help satisfy concerns about a secure supply chain in United States markets that currently see half of their lithium supply come from imports. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the United States reported only 38,000 tons of defined lithium reserves.

“The U.S. has a lot more untapped lithium resources than economically mined reserves at this point,” USGS mineral commodity specialist Brian Jaskula said in a February report (http://dtn.fm/hAv4t). In addition, the recent government order opening offshore waters to drilling (http://dtn.fm/Wd23D) is a clear indication of Administration support for the overall tapping of oil resources.
