India Globalization Capital (NYSE: IGC) Shows Potential for Strong Market Valuation Growth

  • India Globalization Capital recently acquired exclusive patent rights for the use of low-dose THC as a potential therapeutic agent for Alzheimer’s disease
  • No other publicly traded cannabis pharmaceutical company has a patent filing for a potential Alzheimer’s treatment
  • Costs associated with Alzheimer’s disease top $236 billion in the U.S. and $600 billion globally

India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IGC), a Maryland-based company, is currently preparing four products for medical trials, including Hyalolex for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is a fatal, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking.

Alzheimer’s is the leading cause of dementia and the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. Treatment outlooks have been bleak, as there is currently no cure, no way to prevent the disease, and no long-term treatment for the disease. However, India Globalization Capital may well improve the outlook for Alzheimer’s patients with a novel cannabis-based pharmaceutical therapy.

From an investment standpoint, IGC’s potential for market valuation growth is striking due to the size of the market for a successful Alzheimer’s treatment. Other companies in the cannabis space and also those focused on treatments for Alzheimer’s are valued in the hundreds of millions – and even billions – of dollars.

A definitive licensing agreement with the University of South Florida makes IGC the exclusive licensee of a U.S. patent filing titled, “THC as a Potential Therapeutic Agent for Alzheimer’s Disease.” The patent filing targets amyloid beta plaques, believed to be the cause of Alzheimer’s disease. The patent asserts that a newly discovered pathway allows low doses of THC to bind to amyloid beta plaques and keep them from accumulating on neurons, thus impacting the disease’s notorious cognitive decline. Be sure to view the CNN video on IGC’s website for additional information- http://www.igcinc.us/alzheimers-disease-1.

India Globalization Capital is preparing other phytocannabinoid-based pharmaceutical therapies for medical trials that target nausea and vomiting in AIDS and cancer patients; sleep disorders, anxiety and dyskinesia in Parkinson’s patients; and seizures in dogs and cats.

In addition, the company is developing treatments aimed at neuropathic and cancer pain, epilepsy, PTSD, end-of-life supportive care, and therapies for chronic neurological and cancer diagnoses.

India Globalization Capital is a first mover in the area of cannabis-based combination therapy and has filed for six patents in large market treatments including pain, eating disorders and epilepsy. Patents have been filed for a pain medication in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and upcoming filings include therapies aimed at PTSD, depression, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Algae Dynamics Corp. (ADYNF) Creating a Lucrative Niche Opportunity

  • Cannabis is fastest-growing industry in North America
  • Canada’s cannabis market is ripe for explosive growth
  • Algae Dynamics carving out niche in explosive market

The fastest-growing industry with the most consistent growth rate in North America is legal marijuana. A recent Forbes article says that the market could grow 700% by 2020 (http://nnw.fm/5lE7h). Investors have become acutely aware, which explains the movement in some marijuana stocks that have risen dramatically over the last 18 months.

According to ArcView, a well-known cannabis research firm, North American sales of legal medical and recreational cannabis soared 34% in 2016 to $6.9 billion. These markets are expected to continue to grow at a blistering pace of over 25 percent annually through 2021, reaching approximately $22 billion. Growth is expected to come from further jurisdictional expansion of legalization, plus rapid organic growth in areas where the drug is already legal. Mexico recently legalized medical cannabis throughout the country, and, in Canada, the number of eligible medical patients has been growing at a pace of almost 10% per month, according to Health Canada. Canada’s government has also introduced legislation to make recreational marijuana legal across the country by this time next year.

A professional consulting group hired to assess Canada’s proposed recreational marijuana market says that jurisdictions that regulate cannabis should expect “unbelievably high” sales growth in the first few years as criminals are driven out of business (http://nnw.fm/6wB6B). Not yet authorized to discuss findings on future Canadian cannabis markets because of contracts with Health Canada, a look at the group’s estimates for Colorado’s regulated cannabis industry suggests that Canada can expect its own markets to generate billions of dollars per year in direct and indirect economic activity. While every jurisdiction is different, Canada’s population is seven times larger than that of Colorado, where regulated marijuana sales skyrocketed 42 percent between 2014 and 2015 and totaled nearly $1 billion. Numbers out of Canada could easily be seven to 10 times as much as Colorado.

Many of the better known marijuana stocks have already moved in anticipation of the forthcoming windfall of business. The way to make money on this incoming avalanche of revenues is to find and exploit a niche market, which is exactly what Algae Dynamics Corp. (OTCQB: ADYNF) is in the midst of undertaking. Algae Dynamics is focused on the extraction of oils from hemp, cannabis and algae for use in unique health products and pharmaceuticals. The company has already engaged two highly respected universities to provide research into the various uses of cannabis and hemp oil extracts, which, in combination with other compounds, may prove effective in treating cancers of the colon-rectum, pancreas, breast and prostate, as well as for the development of novel pharmacotherapies for various mental health maladies.

With medical marijuana already legal in Canada, Algae Dynamics is carving out a lucrative niche in an explosive market and is positioned to succeed. However, the legalization of recreational marijuana could propel the company far beyond what one would normally expect. One would suspect the company of being prepared with product and processes to profit from recreational legalization as well. Cannabis sales in Colorado soared 42 percent in the year recreational use was allowed. Canada’s cannabis markets and Algae Dynamics’ endeavors could hit some amazing numbers and exceed even that eye-popping growth rate.

The fact that an establishment of this caliber trusts ORHub to be the source of truth for its entire operation speaks volumes on our ability to deliver a platform that efficiently collects surgical data to transform the business of surgery.” The launch of ORHub’s orthopedic service lines marks the first two of 10 major expansions expected for 2017.

About ORHub, Inc.

ORHub is a cloud-based software platform focused on delivering value-based medicine in surgical care. The company enables all parties involved in surgical care to work together to organize, deliver, measure and reimburse in a single uniform process. This allows for significant decreases in cost and improvement in outcomes by eliminating inefficiencies, duplication of effort, and errors and omissions that result from siloed processes in software and poor handoffs from one part of the care process to another. The need for ORHub is clear. Health care comprises more than 17% of US GDP at over $3 trillion dollars per year. With costs rising every year due to an aging population and more expensive treatments, providers are under severe pressure to become more efficient and reduce costs from payers who are aggressively reducing reimbursements and finally moving away from fee-for-service and toward performance-based reimbursement. ORHub enables providers to thrive in this new environment by addressing the single largest segment of health care, which is surgical care. ORHub replaces numerous legacy systems with a 360 degree system that is focused on tracking cost from diagnosis to discharge centered on treating a patient for a specific condition. ORHub has offices at Phoenix, Arizona; Newport Beach, California; and Bellevue, Washington. For more information, visit www.ORHub.com.
