In other industry developments and market performances of note:
Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) announced today its plan to create the world's largest publically traded cannabis industry supply company. Sugarmade and BizRight, LLC, one of the premier distributors and e-commerce marketers to the booming cannabis supply sector, have entered into a Letter of Intent for a Master Marketing Agreement where all BizRight products will be offered by Sugarmade. Upon the effective date of the definitive Master Marketing Agreement, all revenues for the iPower and all sub-branded products marketed by BizRight will be recognized by Sugarmade.
Mr. Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade commented, "We view the Los Angeles area as ground zero for the cannabis legalization revolution and this deal is designed to put Sugarmade and its shareholders right in the middle of the action. The new Sugarmade will be far larger than every other publicly traded supplier to the legal cannabis and hydroponic supply sector and in this business, size matters. The scale at which will be able to operate will allow us to lower manufacturing, warehousing, and transportation costs, and most importantly our cost of capital. This will allow the access to the capital we need to fund the many other business opportunities currently available in the growing cannabis marketplace. We think 2018 is be a very special year, not only for Sugarmade shareholders, but also for the many participants in this new and dynamic market sector." BizRight has been growing rapidly in the cannabis supply sector for several years. During 2017, BizRight is expected to produce at least $30 million in revenues and to be profitable. Growth for 2018 to over $40 million in revenue is expected. As compensation for the Agreement, Sugarmade will pay the owners of BizRight a combination of cash and common shares in Sugarmade.

"I originally became a Puration shareholder when I purchased the Puration distribution rights for Canada," said Brian Shibley, CEO of Puration. "I am a Canadian citizen and with my experience and contacts in Canada, I became interested some time ago in distributing Puration products in Canada. One thing has led to another and Puration has evolved. My interest in Puration has since grown, and so I have become the CEO. With the pending nationwide legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, combined with Puration's experience in cannabis extractions and making cannabis infused beverages, I am even more enthusiastic today about distributing Puration products in Canada then when I originally came to the company."
Kalytera Therapeutics Inc. (OTCQB: KALTF) (TSX-V: KALY.V) announced the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Allowance for US Patent Application 15/143,694 covering the use of cannabidiol ('CBD') in the treatment of graft versus host disease ('GVHD'). Securing a patent for this proprietary technology represents an important step forward for the Company in its work focused on the treatment of this serious and life-threatening disease. "We are delighted to receive this Notice of Allowance from the USPTO", said Robert Farrell, J.D., Kalytera's Chief Executive Officer. "There are currently few options to treat persons with GVHD, a critically underserved market. The results of the previous four clinical studies that evaluated CBD in the prevention and treatment of GVHD were exceptional and unprecedented. Based on that data, we believe that our proprietary CBD based therapeutic may provide a major advance in the prevention and treatment of this disease, and we anticipate that we will also soon receive Notice of Allowance for our US Patent Application 14/787,515 that covers both the use of CBD in the prevention of graft versus host disease, and the treatment of graft versus host disease." Kalytera has exclusive world-wide rights to the technology that is covered by both of these patents.
