Naturally Splendid (TSXV:NSP) announces that further to its January 3rd, 2018 news release, NSE is pleased to announce that after a brief term as interim CEO, NSE has now appointed Mr. Douglas Mason as permanent CEO.

Douglas Mason has over 25 years of experience in the public markets, having served as a senior officer and director for a number of public companies, including 20 years as President and CEO of well-known beverage companies Jolt Cola and Clearly Canadian Beverage Corporation. Doug has been credited as one of the pioneers of the New Age Beverage category. Doug also has extensive experience in financings and acquisitions in capital markets, raising over $200 million over the past 25 years.


Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. Douglas Mason states, “Since stepping in as interim CEO at NSE, we have made a number of tactical and strategic moves that position the company to take advantage of multiple opportunities in the healthy lifestyle market including, food supplements, superfood ingredients, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals as well as pet and animal feed markets. With positive steps such as the recent liquidation of our facility in Saskatchewan, securing additional expertise on regulatory matters and product formulation, and beginning the process of our Dealer License application, we are positioning NSE to implement our various strategic initiatives to drive significant growth, most notably in the area of cannabinoid extraction and formulation from cannabis as we anticipate new federal regulations in the Cannabis Act later in 2018.

Mr. Mason adds, “Over my many years of working with consumer goods I have considered myself a pioneer, introducing innovative new product entries and sales methodologies for numerous products including beverages. From consumer-goods and innovative technology to processing opportunities, NSE’s continued path to vertical integration is evidence we are on the right track. Along with the qualified NSE team, my experience with licensing and distribution and introducing new categories to market will be leveraged as we continue to expand our global footprint.”

Naturally Splendid Director and President of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance, Russ Crawford states, ‘With the positive vote on the second reading of Bill C-45 in the Senate on March 22, 2018 and Referral to Committee, the implementation of the new Cannabis Act is that much closer. In regard to industrial hemp specifically, we are anticipating the inclusion of a section of the Act referring to industrial hemp specifically allowing for whole plant use and the extraction of cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) from hemp.

Crawford adds, “NSE is positioning to capitalize on a large number of opportunities inherent in the extreme versatility of industrial hemp as a plant-based protein and omega source, superfood as well as a host of additional applications. Beyond that, if plant utilization legislation will change as we anticipate, NSE can play a meaningful role in supplying raw material for the production of CBD and other extracted cannabinoids as well as retail products containing cannabinoids.”

“We are very excited to appoint Doug; his expertise and consumer-product knowledge will be extremely beneficial to our business and shareholders. Doug has demonstrated exceptional leadership, enthusiasm, a strong commitment to the Company’s success and continual focus on delivering results. For these reasons, we look forward to working together on this compelling opportunity. “states Naturally Splendid President and Director, Craig Goodwin.

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.

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.
