FinCanna Capital Corp (CSE:CALI) a royalty company for the US licensed medical cannabis industry, has advanced US $1.25 million, the initial tranche of capital, to its investee company Refined Resin Technologies Inc. (“Refined Resin”) of Oakland, California.

Refined Resin is retrofitting a legally zoned, large, state-of-the-art medical cannabis extraction laboratory, in Oakland, California and is targeting to be in operation by late 2018 or early 2019. Refined Resin’s principals have extensive experience in extraction, manufacturing and business operations and intend to be premier producers of bulk quantities of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) distillate and various high-value concentrates produced via hydrocarbon-based solvent extraction.


This is the first in a series of tranches of capital that will be advanced to Refined Resin over the next few months as key milestones are accomplished in accordance with the terms of the Royalty Agreement previously announced. FinCanna with its recently completed financing of C$6.8 million is currently fully funded to make the additional payments when certain milestones are met.

Royalty payments to FinCanna from Refined Resin are equal to 11.75% on the first US$160 million of annual revenues payable in perpetuity subject to certain buy-back options.

The capital will be applied to the implementation of Refined Resin’s three-phase development strategy leading to commercial launch of its operation. Refined Resin is a cannabinoid research and refinery company that provides B2B and B2C products and services to licensed dispensaries and distributors in the medical cannabis supply chain.

This initial tranche of capital will be applied to the first phase of Refined Resin’s three-phase development strategy that includes:

Facility Design Phase: The production facility layout will be finalized, architectural, mechanical and engineering drawings will be completed, key equipment suppliers identified, equipment design and production specifications will be negotiated and finalized. In addition, the key pieces of equipment will be ordered. Considerable work has already been completed in this initial development phase.

Build-Out Phase: Final budgets based on completed architectural, mechanical and engineering drawings will be established, necessary construction permits will be acquired, specialized contractors will be engaged, and on-site physical construction will be completed, including the installation of all key production equipment.

Pre-Commercial Production Phase: All key pieces of production equipment will be operationalized, hiring of production staff will be completed, equipment will be commissioned into service, training and production trial runs will be completed, equipment will be calibrated and optimized, and sales and marketing efforts will be ramped up leading to full scale commercial launch.

The company’s intention is to become a premier producer of bulk quantities of THC distillate and various high value concentrates produced via hydrocarbon-based solvent extraction.

“We are very pleased to initiate funding of Refined Resin’s highly detailed three phase development strategy that will culminate in full commercialization,” said Andriyko Herchak, President and CEO of FinCanna Capital. “Refined Resin’s principals have extensive experience in extraction, manufacturing, business operations and marketing that has been evident in their ability to articulate a thorough development plan identified in this release. We believe they have the capabilities to launch and grow a highly lucrative business that will deliver substantial value to our shareholders.”

Throughout the entire development process, Refined Resin will be meeting with key suppliers, distributors and potential customers in support of its commercial launch.

Refined Resin plans to also provide white-labeling services to licensed brands and infused product manufacturers who do not have direct access to compliant production facilities. Brands and manufacturers who work in conjunction with Refined Resin will also be able to utilize in house distribution and marketing expertise as part of their value add service offering.

Lobe Sciences Ltd. (CSE: LOBE) (OTC Pink: GTSIF) (“Lobe” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the launch of preclinical research studies using psilocybin and N-Acetylcysteine (“NAC”) for the treatment of mild traumatic brain injuryconcussion (“mTBI”) with post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”). The study is in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of scientists and physicians at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine under the lead of Michael E. Hoffer, M.D., professor of otolaryngology and neurological surgery.

NAC has been shown to be safe and efficacious in a phase I human clinical study in treating military personnel who had suffered mTBI. The initial research focus is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the combination of psilocybin and NAC using broadly accepted rodent models. Final results are expected in 2021. Once this is established, more specific work can examine dose response, medicine uptake, and medicine levels. The research team at the Miller School of Medicine has conducted prior studies involving NAC with mTBI and has a license from the United States Drug Enforcement Administration to conduct research using Schedule I controlled substances, which includes psilocybin.
