PUF Ventures Inc. (CSE:PUF, Frankfurt:PU3, OTCPK:PUFXF) (“PUF” or the “Company”), an advanced Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) license applicant, is pleased to provide an update regarding its spin out company Cannvas MedTech Inc.’s (“MTEC” or the “Cannvas”) Plan of Arrangement which closed on January 16, 2018.

The shareholders of PUF as at the record date of October 4, 2017 were eligible to receive one MTEC share for every seven shares of PUF held. The Plan of Arrangement closed on January 16, 2018, and the MTEC shares were distributed in anticipation to a listing on the Canadian Stock Exchange (the “CSE”). The Cannvas executive team has been working closely with the CSE and is in the final stages of listing.


“The pending listing on the CSE for the spinout of our non-core asset Vapetronix, which is now Cannvas, is another prime example of how to create value for our shareholders,” said Derek Ivany, President and CEO of PUF. “I believe Cannvas is on its way to become a leading health sciences company within the cannabis space. I congratulate Shawn Moniz and Steve Loutskou for their hard work and dedication with Cannvas, and I look forward to the company’s public listing to unlock real value to PUF shareholders.”

In the first quarter of 2018, the executive team at Cannvas made considerable progress to position the company as a leading business technology company within the health sciences industry. Cannvas designs and builds customer-centric technology platforms that enable partners to harness the power of data to truly understand their customers. Their first product to be launched in 2018 is a dynamic educational platform for the cannabis space. Here are additional milestones achieved by the Cannvas team:

  • In the final stages of listing on the CSE;
  • Setup several complimentary online brands: Cannvas Creative, Cannvas Data, Cannvas Connect, and techonesixty,
  • Cannvas Creative, a marketing and branding agency which offers services to clients to achieve growth that outperforms the market, has been generating revenue since January 2018,
  • Secured various digital assets including several hundred domains,
  • Initiated discussions with several leading organizations within the health sciences and technology sectors to establish partnerships,
  • Participating in several medical advisory and health innovation boards.

Shawn Moniz, CEO of Cannvas, and Steve Loutskou, Chief Operation Officer, Global Markets, continue to work diligently with various government agencies working toward the listing on the CSE and other partnerships and networking advancements within the health sciences sector.

On April 4, 2018, PUF announced a second spin-out of non-core assets for its wholly owned subsidiary Natures Hemp Corp. (“Natures Hemp”). Like the Cannvas transaction, the Natures Hemp transaction will be completed by way of a Plan of Arrangement and a listing application to the CSE.  Natures Hemp is a biotechnology and consumer products company that is unlocking the true value of hemp. By developing a new generation of plant-based, nutrient rich cannabidiol (CBD) food, beverage and healthcare related products, its goal is to introduce a premium brand of quality CBD products with an emphasis on health and wellness. The Plan of Arrangement will have to be approved by the shareholders of the Company and the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

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.
