Cannabis and CBD products are becoming more socially accepted and consumer awareness regarding these products continues to grow, which is making many companies focus more on brand building with their current product offerings, with one of the key market drivers being quality and consistency.

Nielsen predicts that, “By 2025, the U.S. hemp-derived CBD market could be a $6 billion industry when considering legalized sales of food and beverage products containing CBD from hemp.”

Real Brands, Inc. (OTC:RLBD), a leading brand building company in the legal Hemp-Derived CBD consumer products category, is targeting CBD categories including: ingestibles, edibles and topicals. The Company recently announced signing a Letter of Intent with Wonder Labs, LLC to create a joint venture to leverage Real Brands brand building and sales capabilities with Wonder Labs product development and production capabilities. The joint venture will focus on accelerating development of innovative hemp derived CBD and other unique high-value consumer products and launching these products online and through traditional retail channels.

“As we prepare to launch our HempAid®, Humboldt Brands®, Omegahemp™ and CBD Pharmacy™ brands, we have identified areas where we might benefit from additional resources,” said Real Brands CEO, Jerry Pearring. “By combining certain of Real Brands resources with Wonder Labs, we expect both parties will benefit from the other parties distinct strengths while creating a joint venture that is broader in scope than either company individually,” said Pearring.

“As the hemp derived CBD consumer products marketplace evolves, new product innovation and speed to market are becoming increasingly important,” commented Wonder Labs CEO Vicky Arbelaez-Scoates. “We believe this joint venture not only enhances our efforts in these areas, but it also favorably impacts multiple other aspects of our existing operations as well.”

Real Brands will have a controlling interest in the joint venture while assuming and performing all management and operational functions of the joint venture. In addition, Wonder Labs will initially contribute a new consumer product brand with innovative formulas while overseeing production of all products developed and launched by the joint venture through its affiliated owned and operated GMP and FDA certified manufacturing facility.
This follows the company closing its previously announced acquisition of the proprietary CBD formulas from Integrative Medicine US of Coral Springs, Florida. The formulas consist of Ancient Chinese and other Ancient Herbal Remedies that are paired with the latest scientific breakthroughs in endocannabinoid systems, nutrients and hemp derived CBD.

Aphria Inc. (TSX: APHA) (NYSE: APHA) has been seeing some successes with their cannabis brands in the Canadian market having recently announced that all five of its medical and recreational brands, as well as its subsidiary, Broken Coast Cannabis' Head Grower were recognized at the 6th Annual Canadian Cannabis Awards presented by Lift & C.
Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) and Aubrey Drake Graham ("Drake") recently announced that they have entered into agreements to launch the More Life Growth CompanyTM, a fully licensed producer of cannabis, based in Drake's hometown of Toronto, Canada.
"When we first began talks with Drake we were extremely inspired by and aligned with his vision to bring best-in-class cannabis products to the world," said Mark Zekulin, CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation. "Drake's perspective as a culture leader and entrepreneur combined with Canopy Growth's breadth of cannabis knowledge will allow our new company to bring an unmatched cannabis experience to global markets."
Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: NEPT) (TSX: NEPT), a health and wellness company focused on extraction, purification and formulation of cannabinoids, announced that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. to co-develop hemp-derived CBD products for the mass retail and health & wellness markets. App Connect Service, Inc. is also a party to the agreement to provide related branding strategies and promotional activities.

With professional athlete Scott Piercy, World-renowned PGA Tour Professional Golf Pro signing on as brand ambassador for Real Brands and music icons Snoop Dog and Drake lending their names to new products, the industry is ramping up for a real battle of the brands.

Special Edition of AI Eye-Podcast with VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Talking Energetika Smart City Contract in Mexico City

Investorideas.com issues a special edition of The AI Eye, reporting on recent news from VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (CSE:VSBY) (OTC:VSBGF)

VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp (CSE:VSBY.C)

POINT ROBERTS, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — AI Eye Podcast – CEO of VSBLTY Groupe Technologies (CSE: $VSBY) (OTC: $VSBGF) Discusses Deployment of Energetika’s Smart City Contract with Mexico City

Investorideas.com, a global investor news source covering Artificial Intelligence issues a special edition of The AI Eye, reporting on recent news from VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (CSE:VSBY) (OTC: VSBGF) (5VS.F), a leading retail software and technology company using artificial intelligence.

Listen to the podcast:
https://www.investorideas.com/Audio/Podcasts/2019/111119-AI-Eye-VSBY-Energetika.mp3

VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (CSE:VSBY) (5VS.F) (OTC:VSBGF) and intelligent lighting solutions provider Energetika’s smart city contract with Mexico City has begun deployment. Investorideas.com caught up with VSBLTY co-founder and CEO, Jay Hutton for an interview in which he explained how this smart city contract goes further than what is standard.

Hutton said that while smart city solutions typically cover commercial properties, VSBLTY and Energetika are also bringing application to residential spaces.

“When you look at smart cities, often you see a focus on commercial applications,” he said. “This deployment is certainly that, but in addition to that it extends the reach of the security umbrella to residences. So this becomes really compelling. Not only are you delivering security and camera capabilities, but [also] video analytics and access to city services and 9-1-1 on a mobile interface.”

Another distinguishing feature of this contract is the element of collaborative security. In the press release, Hutton describes this as “Where citizens, law enforcement and technology will work together to affect how a higher level of security is achieved”. He further explained how this collaborative aspect brought residents into the security network with their consent.

“By including [residences] in that collaboration, we’re extending the actual smart camera network to [them],” he said. “We’re not requiring residents to buy their own camera and have their own sealed off camera network. We’re now enveloping the city network that includes residences, if they wish to opt in.”

Hutton pointed out however, that taking advantage of this brings clear benefits to residences.

“Of course, it’s an enormous value for them if they opt in,” he said. “They become part of this camera-based neighborhood watch and a collaborative environment where they’re sharing video of events and crimes that may or may not be interesting to law enforcement.”

At the heart of the collaboration between the two companies is the combination of Energetika’s lighting infrastructure with VSBLTY’s AI-inspired video analytics.

“The idea here is combining lighting with camera technology and sensor technology to provide a public good – an outcome which is security based,” Hutton said.

The press release indicates that the technology is being deployed via security kits, which Energetika CEO, Rodrigo Calderon says “Consists of high definition cameras equipped with VSBLTY facial recognition and analytics, wireless alarms, motion sensors and panic buttons integrated with high LED facade light fixtures.” Hutton broke down the utility of security kits:

“A security kit is simply a light for the facade or doorway of a residence, a camera outside that doorway, a complement of sensors for door sensors and alarms, and a [mobile] application that allows for immediate access to 9-1-1 and city services – all of that combined under a single application umbrella.”

Looking at the wider regional market, Hutton said that though each community has its own specific issues to address, the solutions can be applied to great effect throughout the market.

“Mexico City has its own set of unique issues, problems and speed bumps for sure, but growth is really almost a certainty,” he said. “Right now the same architecture, idea, concept and approach is being proposed to other municipalities, governments and other places in Central and South America.”

DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Special Edition Cannabis Stocks Potcast: Podcast Interview with CEO of WeedMD Inc.

In today’s podcast, Innvestorideas.com interviews Keith Merker, CEO of WeedMD Inc. (TSXV: WMD) (OTCQX: WDDMF), an Ontario-based, licensed producer (LP) and distributor of medical-grade cannabis. Merker discusses the Company’s most recent news and developments, as well as both the medical and recreational markets in Canada.

The company recently completed its inaugural 27-acre outdoor harvest and secured Health Canada’s approval for its purpose-built outdoor processing facility in Strathroy, Ontario. The stand-alone, 50,000 sq. ft. custom-built structure, located on WeedMD’s 158-acre Strathroy property is now being used to dry, process and cure all outdoor-cultivated cannabis in 2019 and is built to process and store more than 40 tons of dried cannabis biomass.

As one of the first and only Canadian LPs successfully cultivating cannabis both in a hybrid greenhouse and outdoors, Merker commented on the Company’s recent harvest from its outdoor grow saying: “This is a big disruptor for the company, as well as going forward for the industry. We successfully pulled down north of 20,000 cannabis plants. Some of our flagship strains like our Ghost Train Haze or our Pedro's Wine Gums for instance were seven feet wide by seven feet tall and producing well over a kilogram of bud per plant.”

Outdoor Harvest video here.

“With the pace of our outdoor harvest now accelerating, this licence amendment comes at the perfect time,” said Merker. “The harvest has been very successful so far and this represents another milestone as we continue to disrupt traditional modes of cultivation. WeedMD now expects to take a leadership position in Canada for low-cost, high-cannabinoid biomass.”

WeedMD Inc. is the publicly-traded parent company of WeedMD Rx Inc., a federally-licensed producer of cannabis products for both the medical and recreational markets. The Company owns and operates a 158-acre state-of-the-art greenhouse, outdoor and processing facility located in Strathroy, Ontario and is currently licensed to produce approximately 50,000 kg. WeedMD also operates CX Industries Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of WeedMD Inc. CX Industries operates out of the Company’s fully-licensed 26,000 sq. ft. Aylmer, Ontario production facility which specializes in cannabis extraction and processing. WeedMD has a multi-channeled distribution strategy that includes selling directly to medical patients, strategic relationships across the seniors’ market and supply agreements with Shoppers Drug Mart as well as six provincial distribution agencies where WeedMD’s adult-use brand Color Cannabis is sold.

Merker also discussed the rollout of “Cannabis 2.0” for WeedMD saying: “We have been extracting on site since 2017, but we were doing so at a smaller scale. We do have the experience in-house in producing our own oil and tinctures for the cannabis market. We've implemented more industrial-scale production and processing and extraction. First of all we will be producing the ingredients, from the standpoint of crude, winterized crude all the way to distillate. The easiest products for us to get to market right now are, quite frankly for the vape products. That's something we’re going to be present in the market with and that makes a lot of sense right now for us a company.”

Merker went on to comment on some of the difficulties affecting the medical market, how the company has successfully built its “Color” brand in the recreational market and what investors can look to expect next from WeedMD.

The Company will release its quarterly financials after market close on Thursday, November 28, 2019 followed by a conference call with management on Friday November 29, 2019 at 10 A.M. Eastern Time to report its Q3-19 financial results and operational outlook. The call will be hosted by Keith Merker, CEO and Nichola Thompson, CFO. Call-in details can be found here.

New York Gets a Taste of iDrink

Sino United Worldwide Consolidated Ltd. (OTCMKTS:SUIC)

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, November 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — SUIC and iDrink Expand Again — this time Into the Big Apple
by Michael Kryton, EQUITY IR contributing writer

Having established themselves in Southeast Asia, SUIC (Sino United Worldwide Consolidated OTC: SUIC) and iDrink Technology have boldly stepped up their marketing initiatives with a move into New York to install two iDrink smart beverage vending machines.

iDrink is becoming known as IoT’s Internet of Beverages with its self-service, mobile payment, money-making machine. The 4-touchscreen advertising monitors on the machine offer marketers and advertisers a new channel to reach consumers with promotions and offerings.

[iDrink’s 4-touchscreen advertising monitors on the machine offer marketers and advertisers a new channel to reach consumers with promotions and offerings.]

iDrink’s approach has two distinct agendas with its IoT beverage vending machines. Firstly, iDrink engages customers through the use of its Drink Coin cryptocurrency. Secondly, it creates an ecosystem for retailers, stockers, investors and brand partners. The use of hashtags and QR codes connects consumers to various venues; certainly, New York offers plenty from sports venues and theatres to restaurants, clubs and more.

iDrink, which is becoming known as the most efficient beer and beverage dispensing system in the market today, is fueling the value network at the right time. The beverage market in North America maintained relatively stable growth from 2014 to 2018. By 2018, the North American beverage market reached US$394.56 billion, ranking first in the global market and forecasters see exponential growth ongoing with no end in sight. This is good news for investors.

iDrink’s partner, SUIC, who boast a respected track record in global development, recognizes the strategic opportunity to deploy influencer and experiential marketing as well as the opportunity to leverage its Drink Coin cryptocurrency. SUIC’s goal is to ensure that iDrink’s positive brand image is secure and stable while taking advantage of added value segments.

Additionally, the vending machines support marketing strategies focused on localization. With the ability to advertise through the machines via IoT, advertisers and marketers can make meaningful and direct connections with consumers in their area. This is where technology can drive growth.

SUIC iDrink’s sales and marketing teams also plan to work directly with local operators such as breweries, merchants, partners, and distributors, to accelerate the development of new channels, partner marketing, and support sales training and initiatives.

SUIC and iDrink realized early that, to spur interest in the market, the smart vending machines would have to produce significant revenue for operators — and that means access to high volume traffic. With the ability to place machines in supermarkets and shopping malls, in addition to aforementioned venues, iDrink is exposed to a high volume of ready-to-go — and ready-to-buy — consumers. This means that operators with ten or more iDrink machines will see substantial revenue that may go into the millions.

The volume of consumption data gathered and consolidated by iDrink is not only significant in volume and detail, but once uploaded to its blockchain-enabled iDrink Smart Vending Machines, it ensures that the connection to each individual consumer is highly relevant.

Thanks to SUIC’s experience providing Blockchain services to five sectors including: “Logistics & Trade”, “Vehicle & Transportation”, “Finance & Coin”, “Medical & Healthcare”, and “Fintech”, iDrink is staying ahead of the curve. In a very short time, the joint venture between SUIC and iDrink has jumped across oceans from Taiwan and Southeast Asia to North America.

It appears that the world is rapidly developing a thirst for iDrink. Investors have every reason to say “cheers” to that reality.

About Sino United Worldwide Consolidated Company The Sino United Worldwide Consolidated Company provides Venture Financing and Blockchain services to five sectors including: “Logistics & Trade”, “Vehicle & Transportation”, “Finance & Coin”, and “Medical & Healthcare”, and a new addition, “Fintech.” The addition of the Fintech sector to SUIC’s Blockchain services includes a comprehensive update in which SUIC will build up its own internal capabilities by actively starting a Blockchain training program, developing a 3rd generation Smart Contract Blockchain under the SUIC brand, and using these capabilities to offer a comprehensive ICO consultancy. Shareholders of SUIC will be exposed to the diverse application of blockchain services in various parts of the economy. Additionally, existing and potential customers can benefit from this company’s diversified portfolio of technologies and consulting services in the four sectors. As one of the first publicly traded technology companies, SUIC serves as an innovative leader by integrating these five sectors. To learn more, please visit www.sinounitedco.com.
