DPH BIOLOGICALS LAUNCHES MICROBIAL NUTRIENT ENHANCER DESIGNED TO UNIFORMLY COVER BULK DRY FERTILIZERS

DPH Biologicals

DPH Biologicals, a leading developer and supplier of agricultural biologicals, has launched Envelix TM Prime, a patented, biological nutrient enhancer designed to uniformly cover bulk dry fertilizer, delivering a robust biological consortium paired with fertilizer in a single application. “Envelix Prime enables both retailers and growers to seamlessly unlock the value of biologicals on a broader scale,” said Mick Messman, DPH Bio President & CEO. “Just one pound of Envelix Prime evenly covers a ton of dry fertilizer, giving retailers a way to differentiate their fertilizer blends with biology while giving growers a single-purchase, single application route to enhanced performance and an increased return on their fertilizer investment.” Envelix Prime contains naturally occurring beneficial bacterial and fungal microorganisms designed to accelerate and maximize fertility release using a patented carrier to adhere microorganisms to the fertilizer prill. In a tissue sample taken from a 2023 corn trial at the V3 leaf stage, Envelix Prime increased nutrient uptake of several macro and micronutrients when applied to MESZ fertilizer, including: An 18% increase in phosphorus, A 10% increase in sulfur. A 9% increase in boron. An 8% increase in copper. Envelix Prime is DPH Bio’s first product to be powered by Prime™, a one-of-a-kind, patented spore priming technology that germinates beneficial bacteria faster, and in harsher conditions, enabling more consistent biological performance. In a recent corn trial, Prime enabled more than 70% of spores to germinate at temperatures as high as 98.6 degrees, while those without Prime germinated less than 10%. Additionally, nearly all spores with Prime germinated in high salt environments, while those that were not treated with Prime did not germinate. Envelix Prime mixes seamlessly with MAP, DAP & Urea, offering improved flowability and less bridging at application. “We are excited to get Envelix Prime out on the broad acre this fall enabling many growers the opportunity to experience the benefits of biologicals for the first time. This integrated approach requires no change in practice for the grower and, with the addition of Prime, we are confident that growers will consistently see the benefits this dynamic product unlocks both in the field and to their bottom line,” said Messman. Envelix Prime is available now to retail partners and fertilizer blending facilities.

JasmyCoin Holders Jump to Raboo Presale Amid Dogecoin's Rising Wave

Total Media

Dogecoin and JasmyCoin price share different trajectories while still offering good trading opportunities. The current Dogecoin forecast is bullish, while JasmyCoin price action continues to sizzle. However, one new contender has emerged in the form of AI/SocialFi meme coin presale sensation Raboo, which analysts can go on a 100x tear in 2024. Read up to find out why experts predict Raboo could outperform even the most bullish JasmyCoin price prediction, and Dogecoin forecast this year. New contenders coming for Dogecoin’s crown Dogecoin lays claim to being the OG meme coin, creating the blueprint for every single meme coin within the $57.6 billion sector. Dogecoin has come a long way from being an ironic take on the “wild west” era of the crypto world, growing to a $20 billion market cap. Early Dogecoin investors have made millions of times over their initial investments, especially those that sold at Dogecoin’s all-time high of $0.73 back in 2021. Today, Dogecoin serves as an “index” for the meme coin market. However, the current Dogecoin forecast is bearish due to its large market cap, which severely restricts its growth potential. The Dogecoin forecast for 2024 is one of limited gains, with more capital flowing into lower-cap opportunities that have larger room to grow. The most bullish Dogecoin forecast predicts a 3x to 5x gain for the token should the next bull run materialize. JasmyCoin price prediction for 2024 looking up JasmyCoin has turned in almost a 950% YTD figure as of press time, firmly outdoing the Dogecoin forecast within the same 12-month period. Here’s the cool thing about JasmyCoin: despite the 10x growth in the past year, The current JasmyCoin price is still 99.2% from its February 2021 all-time high of $4.99, indicating a potentially limitless growth trajectory. That is, of course, if JasmyCoin bulls continue pushing prices as they have over the past year. If they manage to do so, JasmyCoin could outperform the Dogecoin forecast for 2024. However, JasmyCoin has a $1.78 billion market cap, with early holders selling off in favor of projects like Raboo. Raboo presale surges into Stage 4 with a 60% rally Crypto presales offer a can’t-miss buying opportunity, considering it is during this phase when token prices are going to be as low as they possibly can be. Especially meme coins with an innovative utility like Raboo. Finding presale opportunities with the potential for 100x gains like Raboo can be a needle in a haystack. But now, prospective investors could get in on a low-cap blue chip at a price of just $0.0048. Raboo is a meme coin featuring AI-powered SocialFi utility. Using Rabooscan, the platform’s AI-enabled meme generator, users can create memes and NFTs designed to engage the Raboo community and grow it by attracting new joiners by disseminating them through social media. In doing so, users can earn Raboo tokens in exchange for their efforts. With the meme coin market sitting at a $58 billion market cap—with limitless growth potential in 2024 and beyond—Raboo is a rare opportunity to get in on a legitimate 100x moon shot set to outperform both Dogecoin forecast and JasmyCoin price this year. Raboo users can also stake their $RABT tokens or provide liquidity for passive income, and its deflationary tokenomics ensures a constantly stable price with the potential to skyrocket in price at any given time. Conclusion With token prices available at just $0.0048, Raboo blows JasmyCoin and Dogecoin out of the water as far as upside potential in 2024 is concerned. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a project that could go all the way to the top this year—join the Raboo presale today. You can participate in the Raboo presale here.

Therma Bright’s Investment Case Just Got Stronger As Approval On Permanent Insurance Codes Gets Closer

TBRIF

Therma Bright (TSXV:THRM) (OTCQB:TBRIF), a developer of a wide range of leading edge, proprietary diagnostic and medical device technologies that address some of today's most important medical and healthcare challenges, appears to be positioned for major growth based on one important upcoming catalyst. For some background, Therma Bright (TSXV:THRM) (OTCQB:TBRIF) sells Venowave, a compact, battery operated peristaltic pump that generates a wave-form motion. When worn below the knee and strapped to the calf, the resulting compression of the calf causes an increased upward volumetric displacement of venous and lymph fluid. The Venowave is FDA approved for 10 indications, including: Management of Post Thrombotic Syndrome, Prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT / blood clots), treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency, as well as other conditions related to poor circulation in the extremities.It seems that the company is set to receive a newly issued, HCPCS Level II code to identify it’s Venowave device,which will be instrumental in driving revenue growth. HCPCS codes are a set of health care procedure codes used in the United States to standardize the reporting of medical procedures, services and devices. These codes are essential for billing and reimbursement purposes within the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and are also used by other healthcare insurers in the United States, including private insurance companies. Additionally, a preliminary Medicare Payment determination will be made for this new HCPCS code. If the Venowave is purchased outright, Medicare and Medicaid will reimburse $1,199 USD. If the unit is rented to the patient, Medicare and Medicaid will pay $78.05 USD / month for up to 13 months, for a total of $819.55 USD. These are very favourable numbers for Therma Bright when taking into account the manufacturing cost of Venowave. Additionally, private insurers such as blue cross blue shield, UnitedHealth Group, etc., also use these codes as guidelines to determine reimbursement payouts. Why is this so important? Previously, Venowave was placed into the E0676 HCPCS code. E0676 is a miscellaneous code with no set reimbursement, meaning that when Venowave is billed for under this code, Medicare and Medicaid, as well as private insurance companies will default to a $0 reimbursement. While it is possible to submit a package of medical necessity under this code, with a detailed explanation of the patients’ condition and why it should be reimbursed, the reality is that most physicians or prescribing parties will not go through this exercise as they are not reimbursed for the time and trouble it takes. Therma Bright experienced a similar situation with the temporary codes it was approved to sell Venowave under in 2023 – Without the prescribing party submitting a package of medical necessity, Venowave by default will not be paid for. Additionally, these reimbursement issues are a barrier to prescribing parties recommending Venowave, as they are not able to tell their patients if the device will be paid for. Physicians tend to shy away from prescribing devices in these categories, as they could leave their patient with a large unexpected medical bill, reflecting badly on the prescribing party. This new HCPCS code combined with the preliminary payment determination establishes a fixed payout for Venowave across public and private insurers in the United States, eliminating friction in payments as well as hesitancy by the prescribing parties in recommending the device. Therma Bright expects to receive this new HCPCS code and payment determination after the biannual CMS meeting which was held at the end of May, 2024. Venowave differentiates itself from other available compression products in a number of ways. Currently, pneumatic devices and simple products that squeeze the leg make up the majority of the compression market. Inexpensive portable compression devices simply squeeze and release the calf, and do not actively move fluid upwards towards the heart. Sequential compression devices are proven very effective, however they are not portable. Sequential compression devices have tubes attached to an air compressor which inflates chambers in sequence, providing sequential compression. Typically these devices can only be used while lying in bed, on a couch or in a similar position, and do not allow the patient to remain ambulatory. Venowave combines the best of both worlds, providing sequential compression without the use of tubes or wires, allowing the patient to remain completely ambulatory while receiving treatment. Additionally, Venowave is quiet, so patients can continue to receive treatment while they are sleeping or otherwise resting. Currently in the United States an estimated 25 million people are living with some form of Chronic Venous insufficiency. Most go untreated or rely on simple compression stockings for some form of minor relief, as proper treatment via sequential compression devices is too cumbersome and expensive. The issuance of this new HCPCS code and payment determination opens up these patients to the Venowave, a new and portable form of treatment that will not cost them anything out of pocket. This market alone, along with the management of Post Thrombotic Syndrome and prevention of primary thrombosis is potentially huge. Additionally, Therma Bright is working towards securing reimbursement for DVT prevention. While Medicare and Medicaid do not pay for DVT prevention, private insurers do. Therma Bright is confident that the issuance of this new HCPCS code and payment determination will help patients access Venowave for DVT prevention via their private health insurance, which is another huge addressable market in the United States. During the last year, Therma Bright has been meeting with potential distributors across the United States. Many have indicated interest in the Venowave pursuant to a positive outcome with regards to the HCPCS coding. Therma Bright currently has over 2000 Venowave units in inventory, which they expect can be moved right away upon the issuance of the HCPCS code. After these initial 2000 units are sent to distributors, placed on patients, and reimbursement received, Therma Bright conservatively estimates moving 500-1000 units / month. Given the high margin on Venowave, this will fare well for the company. As Venowave is a high margin product, the company is looking at the possibility of setting up a manufacturing operation in either the U.S, Canada or Mexico which would allow it to sell to the VA in the US. This would open up yet another large market for Venowave in the United States. For investors who may be interested in Therma Bright, it is important to note that Venowave isn’t its only product. The company also has respiratory health and consumer health product portfolios. The respiratory health product portfolio features the Digital Cough Test (DCT) app created by Therma Bright (TSXV:THRM) (OTCQB:TBRIF) and AI4LYF. The app uses artificial intelligence to detect multiple respiratory diseases by analyzing a person’s cough sound and has shown a high accuracy rate. The app is currently in the process of securing a 513g FDA clearance, which will allow the company to charge for Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) and be used for patient reimbursement. The consumer health product portfolio features devices designed for pain relief, cold sore prevention and insect bite relief. Disclaimers: RazorPitch Inc.

Lava Cake is the top cannabis strain on the market, new poll finds

NuggMD

Lava Cake is the cannabis strain whose effects are most popular with consumers, according to new consumer polling and analysis conducted by NuggMD, the leading telehealth platform for cannabis. The poll asked cannabis users their main goal for using cannabis, desired flavor/aroma, and desired effect. More than 6,500 randomized cannabis users responded. As a representative sample of all U.S. cannabis consumers, the poll’s margin of error is 1.2%. The top preferences respondents cited were: the goal of pain relief (25%), anxiety relief (23%), and stress relief (18%); a flavor profile of fruit (27%), sweetness (19%), and earthiness (18%); and the effects of relaxation (30%) and euphoria (24%). The full poll results are available here. The company then used its database of cannabis strains to identify popular strains that fit those preferences. While strains like Georgia Pie, Cheetah Piss, Mendo Breath, and GMO Cookies rank highly, Lava Cake is the only strain that meets all of those preferences, suggesting it is both the most durable strain on the market and the one that offers the most effects that consumers want. The poll also finds nearly half of all cannabis users hit it whenever they feel like it—the poll asked respondents when they prefer to consume cannabis, with a plurality, 48 percent, saying “anytime.” “Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Americans have become much more stressed out and anxious than previous generations, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence to see everyday Americans doing whatever they can to manage it all,” said Deb Tharp, head of legal and policy research at NuggMD. “Our polling data suggests that more Americans are using cannabis to mentally and emotionally handle the world around them than to escape from it.” NuggMD.com used first-party data to conduct this poll. It was a questionnaire sent via email to a random list of opt-in respondents, all of whom consume cannabis regularly. The poll was conducted in May 2024. The sample contained no NuggMD customers. About NuggMD NuggMD is the nation’s leading medical marijuana technology platform, serving patients in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. They’ve connected over 1,300,000 patients face-to-face with their new medical marijuana doctors via their state-of-the-art telemedicine platform. They believe every human being has the right to explore the potential benefits of medical cannabis and are fully committed to helping each patient explore every option in their journey to wellness.

Bacha Coffee offers a collection of more than 200 meticulously sourced Single-Origin, Fine Blended, Fine Flavoured, and naturally CO₂ Decaffeinated 100% Arabica coffees sourced from 35 countries around the world including Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Asia, and beyond. Bacha Coffee’s expertly trained Coffee Masters work with farmers to gather the best and freshest beans and then process them according to age-old traditional methods. Since each variety of coffee requires a different degree of roasting to bring out its unique taste profile, Bacha Coffee Masters hand-roast each harvest individually before gently air cooling them for the best taste and preservation. By sourcing coffee beans from diverse origins, Bacha Coffee celebrates the unique terroir and flavour characteristics of each region, offering customers an authentic taste that makes it a true haven for coffee lovers.

With unique and exclusive Coffee Rooms & Boutiques, Coffee Bars, Travel Retail, and Takeaway concepts, Bacha Coffee has since expanded exponentially across Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
