Chicago, Illinois, October 18, 2021 –– RSX Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a Cultivation Design Build (www.cultivationdesignbuild.com), a sales and marketing firm serving the controlled agricultural environment (CEA) market, announced its new grow facility solution in partnership with Sprung Structures (www.sprung.com) and Porta-King Grow Rooms (www.portaking.com).  This innovative, cutting-edge solution can deliver a completed exterior and interior structure at least 12 weeks faster than conventional construction, even without factoring in significant labor and commodity supply constraints currently impacting conventional construction projects.

To find RSX at MJBizCon, visit Sprung booth C8723 or Porta-King booth C8722.

Using our tension membrane and modular wall facility, with large in stock inventory, fast delivery and lowered installation times, a grower with 5,000 feet of plant canopy not only can get a head start on other newly licensed growers, but can generate almost $2.1 million in additional crop revenue, based on a dried flower yield of 65 grams per canopy square foot and a $2,000 wholesale price per pound of flower, both reasonable goals. Plus, our solution ensures that the grower meets any state-mandated post-licensure deadline to begin growing operations.

Speed to first harvest can also help growers with their product marketing and sales efforts as they can quickly gear up to meet needs within their market. Early market entry can mean higher wholesale prices and a quicker path to brand and customer loyalty, especially in markets that promote craft cultivation – such as IL, MI, NJ, and NY – where product consistency and quality become defining factors in cultivation success. Craft growers that can become first-to-market operators are also better positioned for highly profitable early exits via acquisition by larger multi-state operators.

Tension membrane buildings are more scalable and relocatable compared to conventional construction methods – giving growers the option to add space later or when regulations change or simply to achieve a phased building plan to meet budget requirements. Sprung structures also can withstand extreme climates (cold, seismic, fire resistance, hurricane rated) and carry 25-year guarantee on the blackout membrane for indoor facilities.  Cleanliness and biosecurity are both better with modular construction techniques.

Our superior and cost-efficient environmental control system is anchored by our new line of Neocision Spectra high-performance LED lights that are manufactured by BVV, a leading extraction and processing equipment manufacturer, which are independently tested by third party laboratories at a PPF efficacy of 2.85 μmols/J at 240 VAC and carry an industry leading 7-year warranty.

About RSX Enterprises, Inc.

RSX’s principals have provided lighting and facility design-build solutions for more than 500,000 square feet of indoor cultivation facilities over the past two years, including retrofits and new construction for commercial and craft growers. RSX’s service-oriented sales approach includes: (i) assessing existing facility concepts and financial budgets to define project objectives and timelines, (ii) preparing lighting and facility layouts which are used to develop systems requirements, (iii) advising on engineering design-build and equipment specifications, coordinating supply chain issues, and facilitating project management and troubleshooting, and (iv) coordinating equipment and systems procurement, timely delivery and vendor-provided commissioning.  RSX’s value-added proposition:  assist cultivators to effectively implement their capital programs, improve time to first harvest, lower operating costs, and increase yields and product consistency.

Keynote by Barrington Rutherford, SVP of Real Estate and Community Integration at Cresco Labs
CEs and CLEs Credit Certifications Available 

March 17, 2021 – New York – Mannada Events, a minority woman-owned cannabis professional education event production company based in New York City, will host its first Cannabis Real Estate Summit (“CRES”) on April 8, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST. 

The conference kicks off with a welcome from Chante Harris, SVP at Capalino & Company, and includes a keynote by Barrington Rutherford, SVP of Real Estate and Community Integration at Cresco Labs. Additionally, through specific program sessions, continuing education (CE) and continuing legal education (CLE) credits are available.

In a 2018 survey by Denver-based PropTech developer Apto, 76 percent of commercial real estate brokers handling cannabis deals in all states where it is legal in some form reported cannabis deals pricing above the market.

“Real estate is the backbone of the cannabis industry – you can’t obtain a legal license without securing a real estate location for your application,” said Mannada Founder and real estate attorney Kristin Jordan. “We want attendees to walk away with a better understanding of the massive opportunity in cannabis real estate and a roadmap of how to navigate the retail side of this nascent industry.”

The reality is that while a massive opportunity, real estate continues to remain a challenge for operators, with limited real estate availability, little to no federal banking for mortgages and fractured regulations from one state to the next.

“While some see real estate as boring, in the cannabis industry, it’s anything but,” said Barrington Rutherford, SVP of real estate and community integration at Cresco Labs. “There are huge opportunities in cannabis real estate for professionals who want to make the jump. There’s a considerable need for lawyers, engineers, designers and real estate intelligence needed in new legal cannabis markets.”

CRES is part of Mannada’s Cannabis Summit Series. Mannada also produces the weekly cannabis event listing, The Maze Calendar.

Being Facilitated Under a Schedule 1 Health Canada Dealer’s License

DENVER, Colorado, USA, August 18, 2020 /AxisWire/ Mydecine Innovations Group, Inc., (CSE:MYCO) (OTC:MYCOF) (FSE:0NFA) (“Mydecine™” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it is the first organization to exercise its cGMP(₁) capabilities under a special license to legally produce, transfer, sell, and export pharmaceutical-grade psilocybin, naturally derived from whole-mushroom extraction.

Under the coverage of a Health Canada Schedule 1 Controlled Drugs and Substances Dealer’s License, Mydecine™ has the full range of capabilities to extract fungi’s natural psychedelic compounds, such as psilocybin and psilocin from certain species of fruiting body mushrooms all the way through to distribution. Mydecine™ also has the ability to conduct the most advanced techniques to produce purified pharmaceutical-grade extract, then legally export its finished byproducts to its various research partners throughout the world, including but not limited to the Imperial College of London and Johns Hopkins University.

The Company is also capable of supporting commercial research institutions with product donations, including charitable contributions to provide its purified extracts and formulations to end-of-life distressed patients. The announcement comes on the heels of a recent landmark decision by Health Canada to permit four terminally ill patients to consume psilocybin mushrooms to ease their distress. This historic decision establishes a precedent that will pave the way for a wider adoption of psilocybin-based therapies.

“Mydecine’s breakthrough to legally supply naturally-sourced psilocybin within our spore-to-sale™ process will be a major advancement for mental therapeutics, due to the fact that these unique psychedelic compounds are both safe and effective for afflictions, such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD,” quoted Damon Michaels, COO and Co-Founder of Mydecine™.

There is still debate as to which is more successful in psychedelic-based treatments between naturally derived psilocybin or the use of a synthetic form. Given Mydecine’s full legal ability to access both types of active compounds, the Company is poised to internally answer that question as well as aid various qualified groups also conducting this type of research. In theory, there are a plethora of added benefits in regard to the entourage effect(₂) of naturally-sourced psilocybin versus the synthetic route. Additionally, Mydecine™ is developing a number of unique API’s(₃) from their naturally-sourced cGMP psychedelic extracts. Mydecine™ will also be conducting R&D to produce novel proprietary formulations by synergizing psychedelic fungi compounds with other various API’s; Mydecine™ will then attach their formulations to their exclusive delivery mechanisms. Mydecine™ plans to utilize these psychedelic medicinal formulations in various clinical environments around the world in aspiration to better the lives of many.

The Company notes that although several international companies and research institutions are permitted to utilize synthesized psilocybin, the process is extremely challenging and cost prohibitive(₄) with a single gram having the price tag of thousands of dollars. Being able to legally extract psilocybin from its natural source, Mydecine™ will hope to reduce these significant costs and improve the scalability of world-class research initiatives and novel therapies.

CEO and Director of Mydecine™, Joshua Bartch stated, “We are extremely grateful to have the ability to provide cGMP psychedelic API’s to qualified organizations, research partners, nonprofits, and clinical groups throughout the globe. We believe the reason current psilocybin-based research initiatives come with a very high cost using inefficiently produced synthetic psilocybin is simply due to a lack of capabilities and legal restraints. Mydecine’s legal capabilities through the dealer’s license will incorporate our range of abilities, which will be valuable for naturally-sourced medicine paired with new-age technology. We believe our achievement is the first-of-its-kind.”

1 Current Good Manufacturing Practices. GMP is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to the best quality standards.

2The“entourage effect” is a proposed mechanism by which active compounds act synergistically to modulate the overall effects of multiple active compounds working together to produce a polypharmaceutical medicine.

3Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient/s are single or poly ingredients in pharmaceutical medicines that are biologically active.

4 Current synthesized psilocybin applied to recent psychedelic research sells for ~$7-10k USD per gram.

Vancouver – July 21, 2020 /AxisWire/ Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. (CSE: MYCO) (OTCMKTS: MYCOF) (FSE:0NF) (“Mydecine” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Mindleap Health Inc. ( “Mindleap” ) has signed an agreement dated July xx, 2020  with Brightmind (“Brightmind”) to launch a comprehensive meditation program on Mindleap’s advanced digital health platform. Under the terms of the agreement Brightmind will provide specialised meditation content to Mindleap and Mindleap will make that content available for purchase on the platform. 

Brightmind is a leading meditation app that provides customized and practical instruction by world-class meditation experts. Brightmind offers a robust curriculum that is based on an approach to teaching developed over the past 40 years by the esteemed meditation educator Shinzen Young

Brightmind is the first and only app that makes Shinzen’s powerful system easily available. The Brightmind app has been downloaded over 100,000 times and has been featured by Apple in their coveted “New Apps We Love” section, as well as Forbes and Huffington Post. Shinzen’s system is so clear and well organized that neuroscience researchers at Harvard and other top universities use his system to design their experiments and have brought Shinzen on as a research consultant.

Mindleap Founder and CEO Nikolai Vassev commented: “Our vision is for a world where people can make lasting life changes by having advanced tools and access to expert mental health professionals right from the palm of their hand. Mindfulness can have numerous benefits, everything from decreased stress and sadness to increased levels of happiness and focus. Brightmind’s programs have provided radical transformations for thousands of people and the partnership with Mindleap should lead to more value for our customers and platform. 

Over the past 20 years, meditation and mindfulness-based programs have become increasingly popular. Doctors and mental health professionals are embracing meditation because scientific studies are beginning to show that it works, particularly for stress-related conditions. 

The market for meditation apps has exploded into the mainstream and shows little sign of slowing down. In 2019 alone, the meditation market reached $1.2 Billion (USD). Employers are embracing mindfulness training and leading apps like Headspace and Calm are reaching over 50 million downloads while commanding billion dollar valuations. The major players offer relatively simple and shallow meditation instruction, which their users quickly exhaust while Brightmind’s comprehensive and proven programs offer a much more robust value to end users.  

Meditation, when practiced and contextualized well, is one of the most effective methods for improving mental health. 

Brightmind Founder and CEO Toby Sola commented: “Meditation is a way to upgrade our mental software to meet the demands of our rapidly changing world. We have been hard at work to deliver exceptional programs and are thrilled to collaborate with Mindleap so we can deliver our programs to even more people.” 

The Brightmind Meditation program will be a part of five other digital health programs that will be offered on Mindleap later this fall. The scalability, consistency, and reduced costs to end users create more comprehensive and versatile offering for the Mindleap platform.

EUREKA, Calif. – July 21, 2020 – Papa & Barkley, the leading cannabis wellness company in California, best known for its award-winning topicals and tinctures, today announced the launch of its Releaf Gummies, a line of sugar-free, gluten-free, keto-friendly, zero-calorie, full spectrum, and solventless edibles. They come in four fruity flavors: Tart Apple and Berry Burst, which are vegan, and Juicy Orange and Wild Strawberry.   

Designed for health-conscious consumers, Releaf Gummies are Papa & Barkley’s first line of edible wellness products. Great for stress, anxiety, relaxation, sleep, and acute pain, each gummy contains 5mg of THC, making it easy for consumers to control and increase their dose as needed. 

According to Headset, a market data subsidiary of Nielsen, consumer demand for cannabis-infused gummies has surged in California since March, suggesting that consumers are purchasing more edibles due to concerns around respiratory health and COVID-19. During the ongoing pandemic, edibles has maintained its momentum as the top selling product category making up roughly 56% of legal cannabis sales in California during May this year.

Unlike the majority of gummies on the market, which are made with corn syrup, sugar, unnatural dyes and chemically-processed cannabis, Releaf Gummies are formulated with coconut oil infused solventless hash – the collection of ripe, cannabinoid-rich crystals of the cannabis plant. Papa & Barkley’s unique and proprietary chemical-free process maintains the full spectrum of the plant’s cannabinoids, terpenes and phytonutrients, resulting in a multi-dimensional, balanced mind and body sensation. Paired with clean and natural ingredients, Releaf Gummies are easily digestible and deliver a consistent effect. 

“Releaf Gummies are the only wellness gummies in California’s cannabis market designed for consumers with dietary preferences or restrictions, including athletes or individuals with health conditions that require a healthy diet,” said Papa & Barkley Co-Founder and Chief Products Officer, Guy Rocourt. “We partnered with Patricia Jones, the founder of Sistah’s Vegan, a black-owned business in our hometown of Eureka, to develop the vegan flavor profiles. From there, we created two additional fruit flavors using the same focus on health and clean ingredients.”

“As we grow, we remain committed to making clean and natural products that meet the health needs of our customers,” said Adam Grossman, Papa & Barkley Founder and CEO. “Our Releaf Gummies are addressing a gap in the market by providing consumers with delicious, sugar-free gummy options that, like all our products, are made without chemicals, are full spectrum, solventless, and use only natural ingredients.”

Each package of Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Gummies contains 100mg of cannabinoids in 20 gummies and costs $16. They are now available online and in dispensaries throughout California. To learn more, visit papaandbarkley.com/releafgummy/.

ABOUT PAPA & BARKLEY

All products are made using solventless, whole plant infusion processes with sun-grown cannabis and hemp flowers grown in the United States and produced in the company’s licensed, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

July 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Kind LED Grow Lights has announced the X², a game-changing innovation in commercial grow technology. Developed as the perfect solution to vertical racking and overhead grow operations, the X² was specifically designed for close proximity growing, capitalizing on valuable tiered growing space while maintaining a large coverage footprint and even PPFD output. This means increased harvest weight and quality, and unmatched potential for financial returns on your harvest.

The revolutionary concentric square design and unique diode arrangement of the X² definitively rejects the dated concepts and common shortcomings of popular LED fixtures, offering a more even PPFD across the canopy than the ubiquitous parallel bar design seen in commercial fixtures. This ensures you never sacrifice an inch of potential growth across the canopy or have to deal with any troublesome hotspots putting your harvest at risk, and ultimately increases production and overall plant health.

Every component of the X² has been over-engineered to withstand the rigors of commercial grow environments. Heat is potentially disastrous to electronic components, and the X²’s substantial heatsink means components remain cool, ensuring a safe grow environment and extending the lifespan of your fixture long beyond the competitors.

Taking cues from other award-winning lights in the Kind LED family, the X² features a 3-Channel fully customizable spectrum when paired with a compatible controller, enabling growers to match the needs of any plant at any stage of growth. This means only one fixture is needed to get the job done, from seed to harvest. When paired with a compatible controller, more than 500 X² fixtures can be controlled simultaneously.

“As a grower who first learned on LED lights over 10 years ago, I have always loved the possibilities that lay ahead,” said Brandon Okman, owner of Best Buds Botanical. “The X² by Kind LED has reached the pinnacle I hoped for. The raw science behind this light is something to be admired. From the quality build to the perfect balance of spectrum, you can tell they poured their heart and soul into this light. With the X² I can truly say we’ve reached the point of surpassing what your standard HPS can do. I’ve been able to save money on wattage and AC costs while improving my overall quality. Kind X² is the game-changer that this industry has been waiting for.”

“I have been testing the X² light against other LEDs on the market,” added Scott Bulkeley, lead cultivator at Top Shelf Cannaseurs. “Hands down, the X² has a far superior build quality over the other lights, which you can especially tell once you grow with one firsthand. It’s definitely been built to last and Kind didn’t cut any corners in the design, which is exactly what you want in a commercial light. Yield is similar to that what I’m used to with a DE light, which again, blows away the competition for LEDs. The control features are really easy to use and the added tunability feature is something no other company offers. This light is the whole package and then some, and I’m extremely happy with the results.”
