Traders News Source a Leading Small Cap Research and Corporate Access Firm, would like to welcome you to one of the most successful trading groups in the market. Below we are offering an exclusive report on the cannabis industry that could provide significant gains going forward.
Projected Sector Growth for Medical Marijuana
Why 22nd Century Group (NYSE-MKT: XXII)? Because they hold the PATENTS!
22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT: XXII), is a plant biotechnology company focused on technology which allows it to increase or decrease the level of nicotine in tobacco plants and the level of cannabinoids in cannabis plants through genetic engineering and plant breeding.
Marijuana & Hemp
Cannabis sativa (marijuana, hemp) has been used for millennia as a source of fiber, food (oil and protein), medicine and as a recreational psychoactive drug. According to the Global Hemp Group, the industrial global hemp market is currently estimated to be about $800 million and will easily grow to be a several billion-dollar market within 5 years with a sufficient expansion of supply.
22nd recently announced its research collaboration with strategic partner Anandia Laboratories, Inc. in Vancouver, Canada, has resulted in new industrial hemp plants that have zero tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive component in cannabis. Anandia Labs is a Health Canada licensed company focused exclusively on cannabis breeding and testing.
U.S. Federal law requires hemp crops get tested for THC levels. Crops containing above 0.3% THC must be destroyed. 22nd Century has developed a solution to this problem by creating industrial hemp plants that contain zero THC.
The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Botanical Genetics LLC has approved an additional investment of approximately $800,000 in further cannabis research with Anandia Labs. The Company’s continued investment in Anandia Labs will be product-oriented and will focus on developing a range of next generation industrial hemp plants that contain optimized levels of important cannabinoids such as CBD, CBC, and CBG.
22nd Century will provide these proprietary hemp plants to the Company’s university research partners for optimization in various climates around the world. THC-free cannabis is an ideal agricultural crop and an excellent source of medically important cannabinoids; 22nd Century has the exclusive rights to commercialize the plants arising from this collaborative project in the United States. Again, this is patent protected technology that XXII owns.
This successful cannabinoid research at Anandia Labs is the result of one of many of the Company’s research activities relating to industrial hemp plants and to the extraction of medically-important cannabinoids for medical research. In conducting research in this field, Botanical Genetics operates its own laboratories in New York and collaborates with third-party research universities, commercial laboratories, and hemp/cannabis growers that possess all necessary licenses and permits to conduct their activities. 22nd Century currently owns or exclusively controls more than 200 issued patents and more than 50 pending patent applications (http://patft.uspto.gov/) around the world.
Tobacco and Smoking Cessation Technology
The World Health Organization estimates there are one billion smokers in the world and six million people die every year from complications due to smoking.
22nd Century Group, Inc., provides technology that allows for the level of nicotine and other nicotinic alkaloids in tobacco plants to be decreased or increased through genetic engineering and plant breeding. The company’s products include RED SUN and MAGIC regular and menthol cigarettes; and SPECTRUM government research cigarettes. It is also developing X-22, a prescription smoking cessation aid, which is a tobacco-based botanical medical product for use as a smoking cessation therapy; and modified risk cigarettes, such as BRAND A, which has approximately 95% less nicotine than conventional tobacco cigarettes, as well as BRAND B cigarettes that contain low amount of tar per milligram of nicotine.
In 2016, 22nd Century was the beneficiary of tens of millions of dollars of clinical trials that were primarily funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Based on these and previous independent clinical trials, countries around the world have identified likely paths to integrate 22nd Century’s VLN tobacco products as an ingredient in their respective tobacco control policies.
XXII may be on the verge of changing the tobacco and cannabis market spaces with their technology and products that have the potential to save millions of lives and billions in Healthcare costs. Analysts Chardan Capital Markets, reiterated on March 7th, 2017 a $3.50 price target and a “buy” rating on 22nd Century Group.
