  • The Green Organic Dutchman is a producer of first-rate organic cannabis
  • The company recently provided a construction update on its Valleyfield and Hamilton operations
  • TGOD and the Greek government have had discussions concerning the nature of proposed operational plans in the country

Established in 2012, The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) focuses on the production of premium certified organic cannabis. The company’s organic process includes living soil, sustainable energy and laboratory certification and testing. Its organic processes are certified by Ecocert, one of the most astute organic certification organizations. The company’s operational emphasis is on medical cannabis markets in Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as the Canadian adult-use market. Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, The Green Organic Dutchman is working on becoming the largest organic cannabis enterprise in the world.

TGOD is one of the lowest cost, highest quality producers in Canada and has one of the most diverse, experienced and proven management teams in Canada (http://ibn.fm/ZZX7E). The company produces farm grown, high quality organic medical cannabis in small batches. It does so employing organic craft growing principles. Its organic products are free from pesticides, herbicides and synthetic nutrients. Fundamentally, TGOD’s processes produce 100 percent non-irradiated premier organic cannabis grown in living soil.

Recently, TGOD provided a comprehensive construction update on its domestic Valleyfield, Quebec, and Hamilton, Ontario, operations. Major progress has been made toward the completion of both facilities. In January 2018, construction started on the 2,700 sq. ft. breeding facility in Valleyfield. In April 2018, the facility was completed. Moreover, in June 2018, it received a cultivation license (http://ibn.fm/jF5zC).

The engineering design improvements optimize facility throughput. This, in tandem with organic specific modifications, provides a forecast domestic productive capacity boost from 156,000 kg to 202,500 kg.

Regarding the Hamilton operations, TGOD has modified major systems from the original design. Furthermore, the company has re-engineered the whole harvesting process to enhance production uptime and facility throughput. Therefore, this has resulted in increased productive capacity from 14,000 kg to 17,500 kg. TGOD has grown and successfully harvested numerous crops in the pilot facility. It has also stored product for its forthcoming medical pilot launch.

In a news release, Brian Athaide, TGOD’s chief executive officer, said, “Not only have we addressed the important redesign requirements, we have also made significant improvements to the operating capacity and capital timing of our facilities, resulting in an additional 46,500 kgs of productive capacity.”

In addition, TGOD recently commented on the Greek Ministry of Agriculture’s press release and CNN’s (Greece) coverage (dated January 25, 2019) related to TGOD’s proposed Greece operations (http://ibn.fm/zNtfS). TGOD and the Greek government have had advanced talks regarding the nature of the proposed plans. Since early 2018, TGOD has been in communication with different Greek Ministries, including the Ministry of Rural Development and Food. The company is waiting on a license for the production of medicinal cannabis. TGOD has confirmed plans to build and commission a multi-phased facility, subject to licensing from the Greek government.

With a funded capacity of 219,000 kg, TGOD offers a compelling opportunity for perceptive investors. TGOD is constructing 1.64 million sq. ft. of facilities across Ontario, Quebec, Denmark and Jamaica. The company, with its global initiatives, is at the frontline of production of premium certified organic cannabis.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) Creates Unique Opportunity in Global Cannabis Industry

  • Big corporations are investing in the cannabis industry
  • Major tobacco company provides financing for LXRP
  • LXRP boasts revenue streams within the nicotine industry and opportunity in other sectors
  • Lexaria is a unique company doing business on its own terms

The cannabis industry is experiencing impressive growth thanks to both legal and social changes worldwide, and big corporations are stepping up to invest. In a new Audio Press Release (“APR”), CannabisNewsAudio praised Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) (http://ibn.fm/sR2IL) for building a large funding deal on its own terms. The APR, ‘Outside Investment, New Technology Support Growing Cannabis Industry’, highlighted Lexaria’s ability to create subsidiaries specializing in the use of DehydraTECH.

Through the deal, Lexaria Nicotine LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lexaria, has received an initial investment in the amount of $1 million – with the option for funding to increase to up to $12 million – from one of the world’s largest tobacco companies; the capital has been earmarked for research and development (http://ibn.fm/ChHLT). Lexaria will maintain its independence, while the investing company receives only minority ownership of the subsidiary. This unique arrangement allows the tobacco company to buy into LXRP without Lexaria actually selling any of its parent company.

Lexaria is strategically positioned to benefit from new revenue streams based on this deal. The company will receive royalties on any nicotine products created with DehydraTECH and be able to showcase its unique technology to other industries.

In addition to Lexaria Nicotine, LXRP has three more wholly owned subsidiaries that are working in various industries to create new deals on Lexaria’s terms.

  • Lexaria CanPharm Corp. focuses on providing DehydraTECH to the global cannabis industry
  • Lexaria Hemp Corp. focuses on providing DehydraTECH to the hemp-based food and supplements industry
  • Lexaria Pharmaceutical Corp. focuses on licensing DehydraTECH to the pharmaceutical sectors

DehydraTECH is a drug-delivery platform patented for cannabidiol and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, as well as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and psychoactive cannabinoids. The technology is an enabling platform that works across multiple industries, thereby providing a large base of consumers with healthier forms of consumption than lighting up.

LXRP and DehydraTECH stand out among the competition. The company has a total of 10 patents issued with more than 50 patents pending worldwide. Few companies within the cannabis industry have attracted the attention of Fortune 500-type corporations, and even fewer are inking deals on their own terms. Lexaria Bioscience is one such stand-out.

Such capabilities are expected to enable the extraction of data derived from Internet-connected devices like barcode readers. This way, the e-commerce platform will accumulate valuable product data to ensure effective supply chain management.

The annual shareholder letter also highlighted the key Pacific Software milestones of 2018. During the year, the company opened an office in Hong Kong and incorporated HyperSoft Ventures as a wholly owned subsidiary.

As far as 2018 accomplishments go, Pacific Software also announced that it has completed the development of e-commerce platform solutions and features for the company’s subscribers. Some of these features include smart contracts, digital marketing, customs levies, search/match applications, blockchain solutions, advertising and more.

The shareholder letter concluded with a brief statement outlining plans for 2019 and beyond, underlining Pacific Software’s commitment to work hard as to maintain the rapid pace of development from 2018. The business plan provides for further expansion into the commercial markets of Brazil and China with product, business and staffing development.

Pacific Software is an emerging development technology corporation that focuses on investments, mergers and acquisitions of software-based technological solutions and platforms. The company boasts a major strength in terms of B2B and B2C e-commerce blockchain solutions development – its utilization of the IBM Hyperledger Blockchain Backend as a Service (“BaaS”) infrastructure. The Pacific Software trade platforms is expected to improve product traceability and digitize the trade process.

  • President of ETST’s partner for the manufacturing of Hygee attended fair with Quebec delegation
  • Launch of Hygee, which tests women for sexually transmitted infections, is expected in first half of this year
  • ETST recently launched an international marketing campaign for the device

Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST), a biotech company that markets and develops hemp cannabinoid products, plans to introduce its Hygee medical testing kit in the first half of this year. As part of that strategy, the company showed Hygee at Arab Health 2019, the largest annual medical trade fair in the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”) region (http://ibn.fm/KMW9t).

ETST has formed a strategic partnership for Hygee’s manufacture with Dermagate, a company that specializes in the production of dermatology and wound-care products. Gaétan Houle, president of Dermagate, represented ETST at Arab Health 2019 and was accompanied by an eight-company delegation organized by the Quebec Minister of the Economy and Innovation. Houle was also scheduled to attend a reception at the Canadian Consulate and meet with other Canadian trade ministers based in MENA countries.

Hygee is a medical self-sampling kit designed for women to use in the detection of STIs, starting with chlamydia. Dr. Michel Aubé, ETST’s CEO and chief science officer, said in a news release that the company’s goal at the show was to make key business contacts and connect to the MENA region’s health care industry and market.

In a news release, Houle said, “As previously announced, Hygee is on its way to being certified ISO-13485, and soon after, it will be licensed by the U.S. FDA and Health Canada. Moreover, ETST will apply for licensing Hygee in at least five other countries. This is notable, as many of North America’s largest medical device companies will attend Arab Health 2019, as will manufacturers and distributors from around the world.” An estimated 4,000 companies from 66 countries were scheduled to attend the fair, showing products and services to more than 84,000 visitors and nearly 6,000 dignitaries.

Based in Doral, Florida, ETST produces and sells CBD products, as well as dietary supplements for the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical fields. The company is focused on the cannabidiol, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sectors, as well as the development, through subsidiaries, of medical devices and research. ETST’s goal is to become a world leader in the CBD space.

ETST holds several wholly owned subsidiaries. Cannabis Therapeutics is an emerging biotechnology company. KannaBidioiD manufactures and distributes in the recreational sector. Earth Science Foundation Inc. is becoming a nonprofit and accepts grants and donations to conduct studies. Earth Science Pharmaceutical develops medical diagnostic tools and vaccines, while Canna Inno Laboratories Inc. provides ETST with access to government grants.

The agreement will allow the 7,500-plus members of the Federation of the Industries of the State of Rondônia (“FIERO”) to enlist as subscribers to Pacific Software’s in-development BOAPIN platform, a cross-border, multifaceted, B2B and B2C e-commerce resource designed to improve the standards of international commodities trade. In the case of the import/export market between Brazil and China, the platform is helping to establish a ‘Digital Silk Road’ connecting producers and buyers, particularly for agricultural commodities.

The global agriculture industry is increasingly becoming the focus of some market uneasiness, as scientists and consumers alike express fears about land use policies, environmental impacts and population health crises. One world policy researcher referred to current industrial practices as “unsustainable” (http://ibn.fm/zAWFN), while, in Germany, a large group of protesters from diverse parts of the country recently used an international agricultural fair to voice their concerns about large-scale farming (http://ibn.fm/3ciSN) and imbalances hindering smaller growers’ operations. Technological innovations have become critical to responding to the global challenges people face (http://ibn.fm/LYfGY), and the trend has created a market space for businesses such as Pacific Software Inc.

Pacific Software’s focus on developing an e-commerce platform to improve the standards of international commodities trade is expected to create an unprecedented best practices potential. In the process, the company is making it easier for producers of differing sizes within the largest countries on their respective continents to compete for space based on the quality of their products and their processes (http://ibn.fm/yIJIy), using smart contract technology to improve product certification, market data analysis, commodities searches and cross-border payment avenues.

China has been the world’s leading trading nation for much of the past decade, surpassing the United States in many quarters (http://ibn.fm/Kvkng). In 2016, China exported $2.3 trillion worth of commodities and imported $1.2 trillion. The country’s gross domestic product that year was $11.2 trillion, and its GDP per capita was $15,500 (http://ibn.fm/b1sig). The European Union, Asian nations and the United States have been China’s primary trade partners, but the United States has created new hurdles for its trade relationship with China during the last couple of years, and Pacific Software’s role in boosting Brazilian trade could be just the beginning of a sea change for multiple South American nations.

In July, Pacific Software signed a letter of intent with the governor’s office of Rondônia, declaring a mutual interest in promoting exporters to China (http://ibn.fm/mHAZf). The FIERO subscription agreement, announced on January 29, provides “opportunities and functionalities not readily available with current supply chain solutions” for the Brazilian agricultural businesses, and BOAPIN’s China-based social marketing program will strengthen the branding of goods from Rondônia by streamlining information shared through international trade.

“We are pleased to partner with Pacific Software and leverage its trade portal BOAPIN.com to promote regional business of Rondônia,” FIERO Chairman Marcelo Thomé da Silva de Almeida stated in a news release. “Together we aim to further the reach of the great products from our region.”

The BOAPIN platform is set for launch during the first quarter of this year, and the service’s website is currently under development (http://ibn.fm/qjWt9), according to PFSF. The platform will store product information digitally while ensuring tracking and recording capabilities through the Internet of Things. IBM’s Hyperledger Blockchain Backend as a Service (“BaaS”) infrastructure provides the technological power behind BOAPIN.
