Marijuana stocks continue to trade volatile and Tetra Bio Pharma (TBP.CN) (TBPMF) has been one of the top performers recently. The shares rallied 22% last week and Tetra is well positioned to move significantly higher.

We recently highlighted Tetra Bio and want to provide an update on the company after last week’s move higher.

Continues to Strengthen Management Team

One of the major focuses of Tetra this year has been on its management team and earlier this month, the company added Dr. Bill Cheliak to its Board of Directors.

Dr. Cheliak is CEO of Panag Pharma, a Canadian based bio-tech company focused on the development of novel cannabinoid based formulations for the treatment of pain and inflammation. He has over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur and brings extensive deal making experience to the company. Dr. Cheliak currently serves as a Director for Solarvest and is Vice Chair of the Government of Canada’s Networks Centers Excellence Standing Selection Committee and Chair of the NCE Monitoring Committee.

Earlier in May, Tetra Bio further strengthened its management team after it announced that Robert Bechard was appointed to the position of Vice President, Finance and Business Development.

A Focus on Cannabis Biotech Treatments

The addition of Dr. Bill Cheliak to the Board comes one-week after Tetra Bio signed a definitive agreement with Panag Pharma for the development and commercialization of novel cannabinoid based formulations for the treatment of pain and inflammation.

Per the definitive agreement, Tetra will have exclusive access to sell the ocular and topical drug products in North America with right of first negotiation for outside U.S. and Canadian territories. In addition, Tetra has a right of first negotiation for future cannabinoid-based products.

Tetra will work in close collaboration with Panag’s team of experts to ensure a rapid and successful development leading to marketing authorization. Panag will continue work in the development of novel products for unmet medical need and Tetra will take the lead in commercializing these novel drug products.

Positioned to Execute

The signing of a definitive agreement follows the submission of a provisional patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a pharmaceutical drug formulation to treat various forms of cancer and ocular disease

Tetra is focused on developing cannabinoid based pharmaceutical treatments for indications that are multi-billion-dollar opportunities and we think these steps have significantly improved the company’s position within the biotech sector. This is a stock to watch and one we suggest putting toward the top of your radar screens.

Marijuana Stocks Cannabis Stocks

Marijuana Stocks, especially Cannabis Companies with strong ties to Biotech have been increasingly front and center on Wall Street’s main stage.  Marijuana Stocks and the Cannabis-Biotech sector continue to evolve and grow into the mainstream powerhouse we know it can and will be. We have identified a small Cannabis-Biotech start up that deserves your attention.

InMed Pharmaceuticals (IMLFF) is a Vancouver-based pre-clinical trial Cannabis-Biotech company that has not only developed a proprietary cannabinoid manufacturing system yet in the process created a highly sought after database, which has mapped the different compounds of cannabinoids to the various diseases that it can address.

This cannabinoid database was designed by (IMLFF) to assist them in their investigative studies and has currently become a core asset as other Cannabis Biotech companies have come knocking on their door willing to offer a hefty sum for this information. Most medical marijuana processors are using THC and CBD because they are easy to extract in large quantities, however there are more than 90 diverse cannabinoid structures that (IMLFF) has plugged into its system. The bioinformatics algorithm has taken those different compounds and screens them against approved drugs, diseases and genetic properties of diseases. It then selects specific cannabinoids that might help regulate that particular disease.

InMed Pharmaceuticals (IMLFF) has created this database “tool” & is saving time and money in the drug research process. It has already helped (IMLFF) to identify two treatments for rare diseases. One for a rare children’s skin disease called epidermolysis bullosa (EB) that has no approved treatments and the other for glaucoma. Chief Executive Officer Eric Adams said, “It’s a very devastating disease and we found out in early testing that this set of cannabinoids treat the major symptoms of this disease giving them a tremendous amount of relief, but it may also reverse the disease, which is something no one has really talked about before.”

Startup Cannabis-Biotechs like InMed Pharmaceuticals (IMLFF) will continue to grow as Marijuana Stocks / Sector continues to evolve into mainstream markets.

Biotech Buzz Could Focus On Cannabis

San Francisco will be a hotbed for biotechnology this week. The annual JPMorgan Healthcare Conference kicks off on Monday the 9th and goes through Thursday the 12th. But this isn’t the only conference and there will surely be thousands of investors in the city to attend all kinds of presentations being made, which are focused on biotechnology & healthcare. Outside of just JPM’s conference, the crowd around Union Square also consists of the Biotech Showcase, which sets up at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square; and the OneMedForum across Post Street from the St. Francis.

There’s also the StartUp Health Festival on Montgomery Street and other conferences. Considering that thousands of people who aren’t going to invitation-only conferences like JPM, it would stand to reason that attention will be on the industry in full force this week.

Recently Vitality Biopharma (VBIO) announced that it would be presenting at the Biotech Showcase on Wednesday January 11th. The Showcase hosts over 2,800 attendees, over 5,600 one-on-one meetings, and will be expecting to see over 550 investors present.

Biotech Showcase™ is an investor and networking conference working to provide private and public biotech and life sciences companies with an opportunity to present to, and engage with, investors and pharmaceutical executives in one place during the course of one of the industry’s largest annual healthcare investor conferences. Investors and biopharmaceutical executives from around the world gather in San Francisco during this week, which is widely viewed as setting the tone for the coming year…so JPMorgan is just the tip of the iceberg during San Fran’s biotech invasion.

“Biotech has historically outperformed the broader market during The J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference,” biotech analysts at the firm wrote in a note to clients ahead of the event.

And we aren’t the only ones who could be seeing the potential “writing on the wall.” One of the presenters at the conference has even said, “…there’s a growing interest in medical cannabis among traditional health care institutions. This is a growing part of what is becoming mainstream health care.” As we said last week, even though we focus specifically on marijuana stocks, the biotech aspect of VBIO could be something to pay attention to heading into this week, considering the historic impact that the JPM conference (starts today) has had in the past for companies that have a stake in the space.

We said that this week could shed some light on many biotech companies including those involved with cannabis. Now we see that VBIO will be at ground zero, not just as another biotech company that could benefit from the shockwave but management will be in the exact location and presenting to the exact audiences.

Company CEO Robert Brooke will provide a 30-minute overview of Vitality Biopharma’s business during his presentation and will be available to participate in one-on-one meetings with registered attendees.

Event: Biotech Showcase Conference
Date: Wednesday, January 11, 2017
Time: 8:00 a.m. PT
Track: Room 8 (Ballroom Level)
Location: Hilton San Francisco Union Square, San Francisco, CA

    Vitality Biopharma, Inc. (VBIO):

    Technical Update

     

    We’re heading into a new week and continue to keep Vitality Biopharma Inc. (VBIO) in our main spotlight. Canna-biotech has been something we’ve reported on in detail and VBIO is heavily involved within the space.

    Over the last few weeks, we’ve highlighted several key points about the company and the potential of the market but what could be even more exciting is the technical pattern that could be developing:

    There are a lot of technical indicators flashing on this chart that could be catalysts for a continuation trend as VBIO keeps pressing to break upper resistance levels on its chart.

    Granted that since we’ve begun covering the company, VBIO has managed to climb roughly 50%. Even with this being the case, there has been a noticeable level of resistance around the $1.45-$1.47 area on the chart to where there could be a potential short squeeze scenario in the making.

    VBIO has seen a significant jump in momentum over the last few weeks. Since we alerted it, we’ve now seen our newest cannabis biotech feature rally to highs of $1.47 so far. Keep in mind that we picked up coverage on this company just as it was hitting a bottom during a pull-back period. Prior to this VBIO was trading as high as $1.84 during more recent months & as high as $2.25 during the summer. So if this is your first time seeing VBIO in brief, check out the full report here:
