Nutritional High

Nutritional High International Inc.  (CSE: EAT) (OTCQB: SPLIF) reported revenue of $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2019 from the sale of Cannabis related products in California primarily via its wholly owned distributor, Calyx Brands Inc. The company also reported a gross profit of $1.5 million, but a net loss of $6.8 million. At the end of January 31, 2019, the company has now recognized a trailing-twelve-month revenue from Cannabis sales of approximately $17.6 million.

Jim Frazier, Nutritional High’s CEO said, “With Q2 2019, we continue to deliver on our results. We have maintained and increased our revenue base in California, while also successfully executing on margin enhancing initiatives. Our plan to expand in other major US jurisdictions are starting to take further shape. Green Therapeutics continues to make strides towards vertical integration in Nevada and we are also laser-focused on expanding our product and commercial footprint in Oregon and Washington.”

The company continues to expand its California product portfolio by signing a letter of intent in January 2019, to purchase a controlling 51% interest in Tres Ojos Naturals, LLC d/b/a SolDaze. In January 2019, the Company entered into a license and trademark agreement with Docklight, LLC of Seattle, Washington, providing Nutritional High the rights to produce, market and sell inhalable cannabis products (whole flower, pre-rolls and oil cartridges) in the state of Washington and Oregon, under the iconic brand Marley Natural, which is the official cannabis brand of Bob Marley. Additional brands secured as part of the Docklight License include Dutchy, Headlight, Irisa, Grail, and Martian Gardens, which together with Marley Natural, are the “Branded Products”.

Mr. Chris RebentischUSA COO and Founder of Infused, said, “Year to date, the Company has experienced a steady 54% growth in sales revenues over the same period last year. Sales in Q2 were lower than in the previous quarter due to the performance of our AMA subsidiary, which experienced slower than expected sales due to challenges with yield and access to supply. We are seeing dramatic increases in yield and quality since appointing an experienced master grower.”

On March 13, the company announced a non-brokered private placement of 10,000,000 units at $0.45 per Unit for total proceeds of $4.5 million and subsequently announced its close on March 15th as the Offering was fully subscribed by one place.

It’s time for your Daily Hit of cannabis financial news for July 25, 2018.

On the Site

New Mexico Sales

Though marijuana remains illegal in New Mexico for recreational use, the growth seen for medicinal purposes has surged in 2018, surpassing $50 million in sales, due in large part to a huge rise in patient enrollments.

According to data compiled by the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH), the 35 commercial cannabis producers in the state reported $51 million in sales in the first six months of the year. That marks a 27 percent increase year-over-year.

Nutritional High

On July 3, Nutritional High International Inc. (SPLIF) published a press release boasting Q3 revenues of $2,680,444 CAD, an increase of 408% over Q3 2017. That figure, however, differs from the Q3 financial statements Nutritional High filed with SEDAR. Nutritional High’s formal financial statements show lower 2018 Q3 earnings and the discrepancy remains unaccounted for. Nutritional High did not respond to a request for comment.

In March, Nutritional High acquired Calyx Brands Inc., a California-based distributor, for $3,433,784 CAD. In Q3, Calyx Brands posted sales $1,674,269 CAD, accounting for the majority of Nutritional High’s Q3 2018 revenue. This number is not misstated in Nutritional High’s July 3 press release.

In Other News

MedMen Enterprises

MedMen Enterprises Inc. (MMEN.CN) (MMNFF) and The Hacienda Company announced that MedMen has completed a strategic investment in The Hacienda Company, which owns Lowell Herb Co., a California-based cannabis brand known for its pack of pre-rolls called Lowell Smokes.

“Lowell shares a similar vision with MedMen that recognizes cannabis as a consumer product,” said Adam Bierman, MedMen CEO and co-founder. “As we continue to build and promote the MedMen retail experience, we believe that investing in top cannabis consumer brands like Lowell furthers our efforts to secure a loyal consumer base in this nascent industry while delivering growth and long-term value to our shareholders.”

Radient Technologies Inc.

Radient Technologies Inc.  (TSXV:RTI) has released its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018. The filing read, “The Company has incurred significant losses and generated no significant revenues in its recent history. The Company had a cumulative deficit of $62,010,103 as of March 31, 2018. As a growing business, Radient will likely need more capital than it currently has. The continued operation of the Company will be dependent upon its ability to generate operating revenues and to procure additional financing.”

Still, the company’s cash balance as of March 31, 2018, was approximately $21.9 million, up from $11.4 million on March 31, 2017. Long-term debt of over $8.1 million as of March 31, 2017, was extinguished through a series of pay-downs and restructuring initiatives. The Company completed a private placement with Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACBFF) for gross proceeds of $6.2 million. Aurora also converted its $2 million convertible debenture into 14.2 million units comprising of one common share and one common share purchase warrant

Novus Acquisition and Development, Corp.

Novus Acquisition and Development, Corp. ( NDEV), through its wholly-owned subsidiary WCIG Insurance Services, Inc., is a diversified insurance entity in health, liability, annuity and accident, and, the nation’s first carrier/aggregator offering a cannabis health plan announced continued expansion of its cannabis dispensary network that carries Novus Cannabis MedPlan in the U.S. The company has successfully added 13 dispensaries, cultivators, and manufacturers that offer anywhere from 30% to 50% on cannabis medications to the Novus Cannabis MedPlan patient member base.

On July 3, Nutritional High International Inc. (SPLIF) published a press release boasting Q3 revenues of $2,680,444 CAD, an increase of 408% over Q3 2017. That figure, however, differs from the Q3 financial statements Nutritional High filed with SEDAR. Nutritional High’s formal financial statements show lower 2018 Q3 earnings and the discrepancy remains unaccounted for. Nutritional High did not respond to a request for comment.

Nutritional High is a Toronto-based company that distributes edibles, concentrates, and oils. Nutritional High both develops its own products under its FLÏ flagship brand and acquires other brands for distribution and development. On July 18, Nutritional High announced a Letter of Intent to acquire a 51% interest in Bright Green Lights LLC (d/b/a J:MEDS), which produces cannabis-infused lozenges and mints.

In March, Nutritional High acquired Calyx Brands Inc., a California-based distributor, for $3,433,784 CAD. In Q3, Calyx Brands posted sales $1,674,269 CAD, accounting for the majority of Nutritional High’s Q3 2018 revenue. This number is not misstated in Nutritional High’s July 3 press release.

Nutritional High’s Q3 financial statements, though, do not show top-line revenue of $2,680,444 CAD. It’s unclear how the company arrived at this figure. In addition to the sales by Calyx Brands, Nutritional High reported earnings of $585,156 CAD from various asset holdings. Incorporating these earnings brings Nutritional High revenue total to $2,257,425 CAD, still short of their $2,680,444 figure.

Nutritional High reported 408% year-over-year growth by pointing to their Q3 2017 revenues of $527,227 CAD. This was income from asset holdings—specifically, interest on a loan to Palo Verde LLC and rent from real estate holdings. However, Nutritional High’s gross profits show more modest growth. In Q3 2017, Nutritional High’s revenue was entirely profit. But, in Q3 2018, income from their asset holdings was down and Calyx Brands contributed $1,346,722 CAD in COGS. Nutritional High’s gross profits were only $693,821 CAD.

Nutritional High “has been incurring operating losses and cash flow deficits since its inception,” according to their financial statements. In Q3 2018, they reported a net loss of $2,397,163 CAD—roughly the same as in Q3 2017. Nutritional High raised $8 million CAD in Q3 2018 and has $19,227,881 CAD in assets. With a solid amount of cash under its belt, it’s unclear why these numbers don’t add up and why the company didn’t respond for a request for clarity.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas, and if you’re like me, you still have some last minute shopping to do. But, have no fear! The Green Market Report has you covered for the cannabis enthusiasts in your life, both in legal states and nationwide. It can be a stressful time of year, but we’ve collected the best holiday strains and products to help ease your elf on the shelf anxiety and make your cannabis-loving friends and family happy as can be.

  1. THC Designs: 12 Holiday Strains

For the 12 days of Christmas, THC Designs has released 12 festive cannabis strains complete with holiday aromas and flavors, like spices, pine, and sugar plums. They have uplifting sativa-dominant strains for holiday parties, like XJ-13, as well as hybrids and indica-dominant strains to help with stress, migraines, and other pains the holidays can induce, like GG #4, Lemon Meringue, and Gelato #33. With 12 options to choose from, there is something for everyone on your shopping list.

“These strains will help get consumers into the holiday spirit and manage holiday stress during one of the best, but busiest, times of the year,” said Co-Founder Ryan Jennemann.

  1. Daily High Club’s Signature Smoking Supply Box

Daily High Club boxes are stuffed with high-quality smoking supplies like premium rolling papers, filters, and glass pieces. Because there’s no actual cannabis included in the kits, they can be shipped to all 50 states, making them a great gift for your 420-friendly family nationwide. Just in time for the holiday season, they teamed up with legendary pot-activist, Tommy Chong, to create Chong’s Choice box curated by the king of cannabis himself.

  1. Lowell Farms: One Ounce Tasting Flight

For your cannabis-loving buds in California, Lowell Farms has released their own gift box, filled with eight 1/8th jars of premium, organic flower.

For your edible loving, chocolate-fanatic friends in Colorado, Nutritional High has just released two chocolate bars for the holiday season. They have a premium milk chocolate bar and a dark chocolate with sea salt bar, each containing a total of 100 mg of THC, 10 mg per serving. These gourmet chocolates were the vision of CEO Jim Frazier, who manufactured chocolate for 20 years before entering the cannabis industry.

  1. CBD Goodies

CBD was all the rage this year, so treat your loved ones (or yourself) to some premium CBD products this holiday season. Phivida makes a CBD-infused iced tea specially designed to improve GI health, as well as other CBD products. Cannabinoid Creations also makes CBD drinkables, like CBD Hemp Soda in five different flavors, including ginger ale and honeydew melon.

Both of these products only contain CBD – sans THC – so they’re legal to ship to all 50 states. Plus, CBD doesn’t have psychoactive properties like THC, so it’s perfect for a loved one that’s curious about the medical benefits of cannabis, but doesn’t want to get “high”. I’m looking at you, grandma!

  1. Club M 24K Box

This last gift is ideal for that person who appreciates the finer things in life. Named the 24K MBox because it’s actually worth $24,000, it’s filled with 120 curated cannabis products and includes a two-year subscription to Club M, a private, VIP cannabis concierge service used by celebrities.

“Here at Club M, we have seen the California cannabis market blossom, and I thought this was a timely offering and these products represent not only the best, most notable items of 2017, but it also reflects the increasing expectations of the sophisticated cannabis consumer,” said Club M Co-Founder, Chris Husong.

Extremely limited, there are only five total available boxes this holiday season and only in California. However, for that exclusive someone in your life, it really is ideal. Included is a crystal-encrusted vaporizer with over 200 individually placed Swarovski crystals, 10 hand-rolled, gold-foiled cannagars, Royal Tips 24K gold blunt tip with 420 diamonds, limited edition strains, edibles, and topicals, plus 3.5 ounces of the highest quality flower from brands like THC Designs.
