8020 Admin posted a press release InvestmentPitch Media Video Discusses AREV Brands' Preparation for Launch of WOLLAMMO to Cannabis and Hemp Cultivators - Video Available on Investmentpitch.com in AREV BRANDS INTERNATIONAL LTD.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 13, 2019) - AREV Brands International (CSE: AREV) (OTC PINK: AREVF), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, BC Bud Depot, is now packaging WOLLAMMO™, in preparation for sales to cannabis and hemp cultivators. WOLLAMMO™ is comprised of wollastonite, a unique rare earth mineral with unique properties that allow it to break down into calcium, magnesium and silicon in a highly bio-available form that balances soil PH throughout a plant's growth cycle.


For more information, please view the InvestmentPitch Media "video" which provides additional information on the company. If this link is not enabled, please visit www.InvestmentPitch.com and enter "AREV" in the search box.

This allows cannabis plants to uptake silicic acid, promoting strong cell walls that better resist insect feeding and spore penetration, thereby supporting increased growth and elevated product yields. Wollastonite has been certified for organic farms in the USA.


AREV has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent to partner with Vertical Exploration (TSXV:VERT) to distribute Vertical's wollastonite from its world-class St-Onge Deposit in Quebec, which hosts a historical deposit of 27.5 million tonnes averaging 37% wollastonite.


In February 2019, Vertical announced the successful completion of Phase Three trials involving cannabis grown with wollastonite as a soil additive at BC Bud Depot's licenced Research and Development facilities in Vancouver, BC. In the Phase Three trials, BC Bud measured and recorded significant improvements in root mass, powdery mildew control and pest elimination.


Most notably, powdery mildew, the most common fungal blight to affect Cannabis sativa, was virtually undetectable with wollastonite admixture above 10%. An admixture above 10% wollastonite also correlated with sharp reductions in the presence of thrips and fungus gnats, insect pests with a sub-soil life phase in which the wollastonite crystals lacerate and impale their soft bodies. At a microscopic level, wollastonite's needle-like structure penetrates soft-bodied insect larvae and pupae, interrupting the life cycle without the use of pesticides.


The harvested plant biomass is currently being analyzed to ensure no heavy metals are present, prior to being launched online on September 30th, at www.wollammo.com.


AREV Brands produces and delivers functional compounds and ingredients derived from verified genetics processed through its world-class extraction systems. AREV is revolutionizing the current delivery method of terpenes, cannabinoids and flavonoids, premium ingredients and formulations used in products targeted for sale in the natural health, medical, functional food, nutraceutical, sport nutrition and bioceutical markets.

8020 Admin posted a press release AREV Prepares WOLLAMMO(TM) for Market in AREV BRANDS INTERNATIONAL LTD.

VANCOUVER, BC - TheNewswire - September 12, 2019 - AREV BRANDS INTERNATIONAL LTD. (CNSX:AREV.CN) (OTC:AREVF) ("AREV Brands") is pleased to announce that WOLLAMMO(TM) a BC Bud Depot product, is being packaged in preparation for sales after finalizing extensive testing on hemp and cannabis. WOLLAMMO(TM) is comprised of wollastonite a unique rare earth mineral composition from the Verticle Exploration St-Onge Deposit. The deposit is very high quality and clean compared to others in the world. The harvested plant biomass is being analyzed to ensure no heavy metals are present. While waiting for the final results AREV through BC Bud Depot is preparing to supply this fantastic solution to solve a problem the expanding cannabis and hemp cultivators have. The product will soon be available September 30 online at www.wollammo.com


AREV will enter into a Distribution Agreement with Vertical Exploration, whereby Vertical will supply its St-Onge wollastonite to AREV Brands for direct distribution to both small-scale craft growing operations and potentially larger-scale Health Canada approved companies directly involved in growing and processing cannabis and hemp.


Vertical's high quality wollastonite has been shown to be beneficial to cannabis plants in a variety of ways. In February 2019, Vertical announced the successful completion of Phase Three trials involving cannabis grown with wollastonite (CaSiO3) as a soil additive at BC Bud Depot's (BCBD) ACMPR-licenced Research and Development facilities in Vancouver, BC. In the Phase Three trials BCBD measured and recorded significant improvements in root mass, powdery mildew control and pest elimination. In every case the most optimal results occurred with an admixture rate of 10% to 15% wollastonite to the growth medium. Most notably, powdery mildew, the most common fungal blight to affect Cannabis sativa, was virtually undetectable with wollastonite admixture above 10%. An admixture above 10% wollastonite also correlated with sharp reductions in the presence of thrips and fungus gnats, insect pests with a sub-soil life phase in which the wollastonite crystals lacerate and impale their soft bodies. At a microscopic level, wollastonite's needle-like structure penetrates soft-bodied insect larvae and pupae, interrupting the life cycle without the use of pesticides.


WOLLAMMO(TM) has unique properties that allow it to break down into calcium, magnesium and silicon in a highly bio-available form that balances soil PH throughout the growth cycle - this allows the cannabis plants to uptake silicic acid and promotes strong cell walls that better resist insect feeding and spore penetration, supporting increased growth and elevated product yields. (see Vertical's February 5th, 2019 news release)


AREV Brands and Vertical believe there is a significant market opportunity for WOLLAMMO(TM), and that the anticipated distribution partnership will be lucrative for both companies.


Further details regarding the Distribution Agreement will be provided as soon as all terms of the Agreement have been finalized between AREV Brands and Vertical. This transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

8020 Admin posted a press release AREV in Negotiations to Acquire 50% of Lighthouse Genomics Inc. to Strengthen Position for National and Global Trade in Genetic Assets, Lighthouse Tasked with Documenting Rare Genetic Forms in Arev's Extensive Genetic Catalogue. in AREV BRANDS INTERNATIONAL LTD.

Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire -September 11th, 2019 - AREV Brands International Ltd. ("AREV" or the "Company") (CNSX:AREV.CN) is pleased to announce that it is negotiating to acquire 50 per cent of Lighthouse Genomics Inc. Lighthouse will remain an independent operating entity with voting control and an agreement to provide AREV holdings with preferential access to genomic analysis to inform AREV breeding operations with advanced genetic science.


AREV, a cannabis integrator, conducts extensive breeding research and development to produce proprietary genetic assets through its holdings in BC Bud Depot. The Lighthouse acquisition complements the Company's purchase of its largest holding, BC Bud Depot assets, which include a seed bank considered to be a world-class genetic resource, as previously announced September 7, 2018. The strategic investment in Lighthouse Genomics Inc. strengthens AREV's position as an international leader in cannabis genetic research and breeding.


AREV's programs operated by BC Bud Depot will utilize Lighthouse's proprietary technologies to accelerate breeding of new genetic assets through oversight of the genetic basis of traits in cannabis. Lighthouse's industry-leading technologies include the Lighthouse Cannabis Assay(TM) (LCA), which captures 40,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) selected for high relevance within the cannabis genome. The LCA is considered the most comprehensive SNP genotype array chip for cannabis currently available worldwide. Lighthouse has also produced a proprietary bioinformatics software pipeline to analyze and interpret data produced by LCA genotyping or by Whole Genome Sequencing. These data-capture and analytic technologies provide AREV with an unprecedented opportunity to apply strategic genomic intelligence to producing rare and stable traits in new genetic assets, developed with speed and precision far surpassing conventional plant-breeding practices.


Timothy Harvey, CEO of Lighthouse Genomics, stated, "Genetic oversight is an indispensable tool for developing cannabis varieties with production efficiencies and rare chemical signatures that target specific desired outcomes. We offer tools and techniques that allow cannabis companies to lead and compete as the industry transitions to a science-based era. The Lighthouse Cannabis Assay(TM) can be used to screen populations to detect infrequent allelic forms, and to select breeding partners for reproductive stability in genes that encode for traits not commonly expressed in the broader population. The LCA captures data from approximately 5000 genes of interest, including dozens of cannabinoid and terpene synthase genes, precursor genes and genes associated with crop yields and flower size. We provide AREV the opportunity to analyze the allelic forms and frequencies that underly hidden diversity within the cannabis gene pool - in other words, to prospect for value on the genetic frontier."


Harvey noted that Lighthouse continues to support companies industry-wide while maintaining a rigorous data security and protection policy. "Only Lighthouse bioinformaticians have access to our genome database," Harvey stated. "However, all clients benefit as our database grows. Extensive genotyping by a company such as BC Bud Depot causes the Lighthouse database to become a more precise tool for measuring genetic novelty and expressions of value in the cannabis genome. This partnership is a benefit to all existing and future clients of our company. AREV is contributing to the advancement of cannabis science."


Mike Withrow, CEO for AREV Brands International, states, "Acquiring of 50% of Lighthouse solidifies our leadership in the field of cannabis genetics. This is a high-magnitude acquisition allowing us to pair BC Bud Depot's vast genetic reservoir with Lighthouse technologies, to maximum advantage. Our enhanced breeding programs will ensure that BC Bud Depot genetics continue to raise the bar for quality in the industry. We will select our cultivation partners based on their ability to bring out the very best in these strains."


As previously announced April 11 2019


BC Bud Depot moves to improve the variety and qualities of cannabis strains made available to the medicinal and recreational markets by Licensed Producers in Canada. BC Bud Depot contracted Lighthouse to conduct Whole Genome Sequencing on the first ten select BC Bud Depot cultivars. Lighthouse has provided BC Bud Depot extensive consulting and two forms of reporting: a Genetic Assets Overview (now known as the Genetic Assets Population Report) providing oversight to the entire tested BC Bud Depot gene pool, and a Genovar Report for each individual plant sequenced.



As previously announced in May 2019


Lighthouse has issued certification documents to BC Bud Depot for the master plants of 10 genovars, clone groups that share the common genome of the individual plant tested in the certification process. The BC Bud Depot genovars are elite lineages selected for traits desirable in master breeding stock used for producing seeds and new cannabis varieties.

And AREV needs to get on the Vancouver exchange. Way too early to talk about Toronto.. Judging by the many stocks on the VSE, I can see absolutely no reason why AREV would not qualify. A VSE listing would be a small step up from the CSE.

I believe that the focus on California is a good thing for AREV. I was reading an article that says oversaturation and a difficult market in Canada will mean many cannabis companies will never turn a profit. They will just become like the many junior mining companies that tried and failed over decades to become a success. I think the successful rise of AREV will mean minimizing it's Canadian cannabis operations and concentrating on US states that have approved cannabis already. And California is great in that they can grow crops on outside land which is what AREV will have access to if the LOI for the 100 acres partnership goes thru.

I have tried finding info on the company Silvertree Investments of Los Angeles, Calif. that AREV used to identify the two companies in that State for a potential partnerships. We should get news on that within 2 weeks. Would seem Silvertree Investments is a very small firm as I can't find anything easily on them. Can't even find a website for them. Sometimes too small is too small. Hopefully not in this case.

Timothy Harvey, CEO of Lighthouse Genomics, stated, "Genetic oversight is an indispensable tool for developing cannabis varieties with production efficiencies and rare chemical signatures that target specific desired outcomes. We offer tools and techniques that allow cannabis companies to lead and compete as the industry transitions to a science-based era. The Lighthouse Cannabis Assay(TM) can be used to screen populations to detect infrequent allelic forms, and to select breeding partners for reproductive stability in genes that encode for traits not commonly expressed in the broader population. The LCA captures data from approximately 5000 genes of interest, including dozens of cannabinoid and terpene synthase genes, precursor genes and genes associated with crop yields and flower size. We provide AREV the opportunity to analyze the allelic forms and frequencies that underly hidden diversity within the cannabis gene pool - in other words, to prospect for value on the genetic frontier."


Harvey noted that Lighthouse continues to support companies industry-wide while maintaining a rigorous data security and protection policy. "Only Lighthouse bioinformaticians have access to our genome database," Harvey stated. "However, all clients benefit as our database grows. Extensive genotyping by a company such as BC Bud Depot causes the Lighthouse database to become a more precise tool for measuring genetic novelty and expressions of value in the cannabis genome. This partnership is a benefit to all existing and future clients of our company. AREV is contributing to the advancement of cannabis science."


Mike Withrow, CEO for AREV Brands International, states, "Acquiring of 50% of Lighthouse solidifies our leadership in the field of cannabis genetics. This is a high-magnitude acquisition allowing us to pair BC Bud Depot's vast genetic reservoir with Lighthouse technologies, to maximum advantage. Our enhanced breeding programs will ensure that BC Bud Depot genetics continue to raise the bar for quality in the industry. We will select our cultivation partners based on their ability to bring out the very best in these strains."


As previously announced April 11 2019


BC Bud Depot moves to improve the variety and qualities of cannabis strains made available to the medicinal and recreational markets by Licensed Producers in Canada. BC Bud Depot contracted Lighthouse to conduct Whole Genome Sequencing on the first ten select BC Bud Depot cultivars. Lighthouse has provided BC Bud Depot extensive consulting and two forms of reporting: a Genetic Assets Overview (now known as the Genetic Assets Population Report) providing oversight to the entire tested BC Bud Depot gene pool, and a Genovar Report for each individual plant sequenced.



As previously announced in May 2019


Lighthouse has issued certification documents to BC Bud Depot for the master plants of 10 genovars, clone groups that share the common genome of the individual plant tested in the certification process. The BC Bud Depot genovars are elite lineages selected for traits desirable in master breeding stock used for producing seeds and new cannabis varieties.

I have another 2 investments on this site, and then noticed AREV is on as well. This is a fantastic way for me or any other shareholder to keep informed about AREV, and am looking forward to upcoming comments, news, and information about the Company. Thanks, this is fantastic! Please keep us informed about any shows or speaking engagements upcoming.

And AREV needs to get on the Vancouver exchange. Way too early to talk about Toronto.. Judging by the many stocks on the VSE, I can see absolutely no reason why AREV would not qualify. A VSE listing would be a small step up from the CSE.

I believe that the focus on California is a good thing for AREV. I was reading an article that says oversaturation and a difficult market in Canada will mean many cannabis companies will never turn a profit. They will just become like the many junior mining companies that tried and failed over decades to become a success. I think the successful rise of AREV will mean minimizing it's Canadian cannabis operations and concentrating on US states that have approved cannabis already. And California is great in that they can grow crops on outside land which is what AREV will have access to if the LOI for the 100 acres partnership goes thru.

I have tried finding info on the company Silvertree Investments of Los Angeles, Calif. that AREV used to identify the two companies in that State for a potential partnerships. We should get news on that within 2 weeks. Would seem Silvertree Investments is a very small firm as I can't find anything easily on them. Can't even find a website for them. Sometimes too small is too small. Hopefully not in this case.
