Marijuana Company of America’s $MCOA Overview of 2017 Highlights $AERO $CBDS $CGRW $APH.ca $GBLX

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:47 AM on Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

15233 mcoa

2017 HIGHLIGHTS

  • MCOA became a fully reporting company by filing a Form 10 with the SEC in May of 2017
  • In Q1 2017, MCOA entered into a joint venture partnership with Bougainville Ventures, Inc
  • In Q3 2017, MCOA and Global Hemp Group, Inc. (CSE: GHG) (OTC: GBHPF) entered into a joint venture partnership to develop commercial hemp production and processing in New Brunswick
  • In October 2017, MCOA and GHG jointly entered into a letter of intent  with Space Cowboys, Inc.

Escondido, California–(January 3, 2018) – MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (OTC Pink: MCOA) (“MCOA” or the “Company“), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to announce its 2017 year-end review to its valued shareholders and interested parties.

Donald Steinberg, CEO of MCOA, said: I am the founder of multiple startups, including Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), which has a market cap of over 300 million dollars. I am aware of the challenges and opportunities these endeavors present, and the need for a strong foundation to build upon. Having experience in the structuring, development and operations of large global marketing companies in various industries, I believe Marijuana Company of America and its subsidiary hempSMART are poised to deliver significant value to our shareholders based on the foundations and accomplishments made in the past year. 

The Company has fulfilled its promise to its shareholders by becoming an audited and fully transparent reporting company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We are participating in the cannabis space with our leasing operation in Washington. The hempSMART team has developed a line of products that can be viewed at www.hempsmart.com. We completed joint hemp trials in New Brunswick, Canada with Global Hemp Group, Inc. in 2017, and we expect to be starting commercial production in Spring 2018. There are a number of other projects we are completing due diligence on. I am thankful to the teams at MCOA and hempSMART for their accomplishments and due diligence in working through these various projects.  We will continue to build upon the diligent work of the past year as we continue to move forward and execute our business plan.”

Updates on hempSMART Products

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, hempSMART, Inc., distributes industrial hemp based CBD wellness products via network marketing. In September 2017, the Company completely revamped its website and network marketing platform to provide customers and affiliates with the necessary tools needed to become successful in the expanding $1.9 Trillion Wellness Industry. The Company has successfully filed a patent application with the U.S Patent and Trademark Office for full patent protection on its proprietary CBD formulation: “hempSMART™ Brain.” Also in 2017, hempSMART released two new products: “hempSMART™ Full Spectrum Drops” (Orange, Mint, Lemon, and Strawberry) and “hempSMART™ Pain Capsules.” Several more products are in development and the Company anticipates their release in Q1 2018.

Filing Form 10 with SEC and Completing Audit

MCOA became a fully reporting company by filing a Form 10 with the SEC in May of 2017. A PCOAB registered audit firm (L & L CPAs PA) completed a two-year audit of the Company’s 2015 and 2016 financial statements. This is an integral step to qualifying the Company to uplist its trading tier with OTC Markets to the OTCQB. This is an important step in helping MCOA raise necessary capital to fund it projects and expand operations, as well as provide more transparent and reliable information to investors. Currently, the Company is in the process of preparing and filing an S-1 registration statement with the SEC in order to raise the necessary capital to fund its aggressive growth goals for 2018. Due to the inherent legal complexity of the cannabis industry, it took considerable effort to address SEC comments pertaining to disclosures of our business and corresponding products. We believe there is a great deal of shareholder value by the Company distinguishing itself from a majority of cannabis public companies that elect not to be fully reporting SEC filers.

Cultivation Joint Venture in Washington State

In Q1 2017, MCOA entered into a joint venture partnership with Bougainville Ventures, Inc. (“BV”), who plans to construct a 30,000 sq. ft. greenhouse cultivation facility in Oroville, WA. The facility will accommodate a Tier-3 production and processing I-502 tenant with years of experience in cannabis cultivation. In Q4 of 2017, MCOA completed financing of $800,000 in cash and 15 million shares of the Company’s common stock to complete the amended terms of the agreement. The delivery of the first pre-designed greenhouses, with full tracking and reporting protocols has arrived and completed construction of the six greenhouses, totaling in a one-acre footprint, is expected in Q1 2018. This joint venture project is solely for the purpose of cultivation and processing of legal marijuana within the state of Washington only and not beyond its borders. The Company will lease the turnkey property to the licensed tenant, thus acting solely as a landlord. As of December 31, 2017, the first greenhouse was purchased and in the process of being constructed.

JV with Global Hemp Group in Canada

In Q3 2017, MCOA and Global Hemp Group, Inc. (CSE: GHG) (OTC: GBHPF) entered into a joint venture partnership to develop commercial hemp production and processing in New Brunswick, Canada. MCOA and GHG have now completed the first phase of hemp trials, receiving research support from the Collége Communautaire du Nouveau Brunswick (CCNB). MCOA is granted a Right of First Refusal as the primary recipient of any raw materials produced from the project, which we expect will harvest its first commercial crop of 125 acres in Q4 2018.

MoneyTrac Technologies Investment

In July 2017, MCOA completed an investment of $250,000 into MoneyTrac Technology, Inc. (“MTT”), a subsidiary of Global Payout, Inc. (OTC: GOHE) in exchange for 15% equity position in the company, to help establish and market MTT as an alternative banking solution for the Cannabis industry. MTT currently has the ability to integrate and streamline electronic payment processing such as E-wallet, mobile applications, debit cards, and credit cards. Currently, MoneyTrac Technology has strategic partnerships with top cannabis services such as GreenRush, BlazeNow, High Grade Management Group, and PotSaver, which was a majority acquisition last October.

BeniHemp Investment

At the end of Q4, the Company announced an investment of $100,000 for a 25% equity stake in Convenient Hemp Mart, LLC’s “BeniHemp” branded products to target convenience stores for CBD product distribution. BeniHemp products will include topicals, tinctures, and edibles conveniently packaged in 1-day, 2-day, and 30-day supplies. The target market is convenience stores, smoke shops, gas stations and similar small retail businesses. The expectation is that there will be a full launch and website online in January 2018.

Space Cowboys, Inc.

In October 2017, MCOA and GHG (“the Companies”) jointly entered into a letter of intent (LOI) with Space Cowboys, Inc. (“Space Cowboys“). Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the Companies intended to invest US$2.5 Million in exchange for a 25% equity interest in Space Cowboys. However, the Companies are unable to complete due diligence and will not be moving forward with this project.

Joint Venture in Adelanto, CA

In March, MCOA entered into a joint venture agreement with GateC Research Inc. (“GCR”) for the purpose of developing a turnkey cultivation facility in Adelanto, California for leasing to GCR which owns a local permit for cultivation. GCR and MCOA are in the process of identifying and securing property to facilitate the project. MCOA will invest cash and stock to complete the agreement. With the recent legalization of cannabis for recreational use on January 1, 2018 in California, MCOA expects to focus its attention on actualizing this opportunity in California. This JV project is solely for the purpose of cultivation of legal marijuana within the state of California and not beyond its borders. The Company will act solely as a landlord in this JV.

Investor Relations

Also in 2017, MCOA engaged NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”) for the Company’s corporate communication solutions. NNW is a multifaceted financial news and publishing company that delivers a new generation of social communication solutions, news aggregation and syndication, and enhanced news release services. NNW’s strategies help public and private organizations find their voice and build market visibility. As part of the Client-Partner relationship with MCOA, NNW will leverage its investor-based distribution network of over 5,000 key syndication outlets, various newsletters, social media channels, blogs, and other outreach tools to generate greater brand awareness for the Company.

Marijuana Company of America Q4 2016 Outlook and Update $MCOA.us

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:46 AM on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

15233_mcoa

 

  • hempSMART Brain product release imminent
  • Offers brain support and protection
  • Product is first-of-its-kind
  • Fulfillment center prepared to manage distribution of orders
  • Members signing up for PreLaunch

BONSALL, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 18, 2016) –

MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC., (“MCOA” or the “Company”) (OTC PINK:MCOA), an innovative cannabis and hemp marketing and distribution company, is providing this update to keep our shareholders and prospective investors informed.

Our first product, hempSMART BRAIN, formulated with CBD or Cannabidiol as the core ingredient combined with high quality, clinically proven, branded ingredients to compliment the CBD to support brain health. There are new articles published daily regarding the benefits of CBD, hempSMART BRAIN was formulated to meet the growing demand for cannabinoid based neutraceutical products that assist in brain function.

The hempSMART Brain product is scheduled for release by the end of October. It was expected to ship by the second week of October, but delays in receiving key ingredients from suppliers has pushed back the ship date by approximately two weeks. Our fulfillment center is ready to manage distribution of orders and they are working very closely with hempSMART’s manufacturer, which will result in significant efficiencies of scale.

hempSMART Brain is a first-of-its-kind product. The synergistic blend of clinically verified natural brain support ingredients, blended with water soluble CBD, enables crossing of the blood-brain barrier to provide optimal brain support and protection.

hempSMART Brain was developed to address the increase in neurologic and neurodegenerative challenges that have prompted a surge in scientific research on prevention and/or reversal of brain and nervous system pathology. A variety of natural products have been shown, in clinical trials, to improve neurological and cognitive function and there has been a surge of products being marketed to improve brain function.

Marketing leaders are currently preparing for the Brain product roll-out. The hempSMART prelaunch website: hempSMART.com is now active and accessible to the Company’s members.

According to the Direct Selling Association, in 2015 over 20 million people in the U.S. were involved in direct selling, with total sales of $36.1 billion. More than 74 percent of the American public has purchased goods or services through direct selling. Worldwide sales are also strong with more than $154 billion in sales. This marketing and distribution method is incredibly effective at creating solid sales and loyal members, as well as brand awareness in the marketplace because the sales “force” are people that passionately believe in the company, product and the difference it can make in people’s lives. The energy they can invest into the education of potential customers is far more than any other sales model.

Another key driver in the affiliate marketing industry is compensation or commission that is based on performance. Affiliate leaders earn rewards and compensation for developing training systems for their personal sales “teams” within hempSMART. Based on this win-win business model, companies can grow rapidly due to the success of the customer, the affiliate and the entire direct sales process.

Over the years, thousands of affiliate marketing teams have been established to promote new products for launch. Our affiliate marketing leaders are well established, long-term professionals. They are testing the system as well as preparing their marketing organizations for the Brain product launch. The Company has a robust affiliate marketing program that is integrated into the hempSMART.com full website which was designed and developed by ApogeeINVENT. This user-friendly platform will help our affiliates track their commissions and provide resources, and helpful information for marketing the Company’s products.

“We have received significant interest in this product and we are looking forward to updating the financial markets and our shareholders as the product release takes place,” said CEO, Donald Steinberg.

The Club Harmoneous pilot program has been extended due to regulatory challenges under the current non-profit regulatory model in California. The Company will continue to work through these challenges to develop a unique operating model that can operate under the current regulatory framework as well as the upcoming licensing and regulatory structure proposed by the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA). The Company is also prepared for the passing of Prop 64 in November for the adult use of marijuana in California. The Company continues to work closely with Green Dot Collective in Los Angeles County to overcome some of the regulatory challenges and changes in California. Upon satisfactory completion of the Southern California pilot program, the Company will begin expansion to Northern California and other legal adult use and medical marijuana states.

Investors are invited to visit the MCOA IR Hub on Agoracom to post questions and receive answers, or review questions and answers already posted by fellow investors. In addition, the MCOA IR HUB provides a monitored forum for investors and prospective shareholders to communicate within a clean, professional environment.
