Pivot Continues To Build Technology Portfolio

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 17, 2018) – Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE: PVOT) (OTCQB: PVOTF) (“Pivot” or the “Company”), and its wholly-owned medical cannabis products division, Pivot Green Stream Health Solutions Inc. (“PGS” or “Pivot Green Stream”), are pleased to provide its shareholders with a Corporate Update.

Since Pivot’s entry into the cannabis industry, we have accumulated the following four patented or proprietary technologies to deliver cannabinoids into the human body that avoid exposure to carcinogens from smoking:


BiPhasix Transdermal Delivery System (semi-solid topical cream);


Thrudermic Nanoparticulate Transdermal Delivery System (gel or patch);


SolMic Micelle Water Soluble Oral Delivery System (oral dropper bottle); and


RTIC Cannabis Oil-To-Powder System (powder for infusion into food and beverages).

Each of Pivot’s technologies will allow the Company to develop and monetize dozens of products in various strengths and concentrations (with or without THC) addressing many unmet medical needs and favouring a healthy lifestyle. The pipeline that Pivot is developing will enable it to deliver meaningful doses (e.g. better bioavailability) of cannabinoids, unlike current products marketed today.

Pivot’s products will have a shelf-life that will enable them to remain fresh and stable and have clinical data to support efficacy and safety claims in order to be used to manage a particular health condition. As well, each of our technologies allow for the smell and taste of cannabinoids to be greatly improved. Lastly, our products will be manufactured in a world class facility of pharmaceutical grade using only the purest of cannabis extracts.

Pivot will develop its products in markets where cannabinoids can be sourced and formulated without restriction. The Company recently announced that it will develop its cutting-edge cannabis products in Israel and in Germany, working with world class scientists to bring our impressive pipeline of products to market in 2018.

Dr. Patrick Frankham, Pivot’s CEO, states that “we are proud of the progress that the Company has made during the past few months. As the market prepares for legalization, it is Pivot’s belief that only products that are doseable and have high bio-availability will differentiate themselves from those delivered using simple tropical or vegetable based oils. Our intellectual property portfolio easily distinguishes us from our competitors.”

Technology evolutions and fluctuations in the market are forcing companies to adapt their business models to remain competitive.

“Today’s economy is changing, which means businesses have to adapt to survive. But having invested thousands, even millions of dollars in their enterprise IT systems, companies don’t want to have to flush that and start from scratch to support a necessary business transformation. This is where the TEC IT Master Plan comes in–it details what adjustments are needed so that the current infrastructure is flexible and scalable enough to support a company’s current and future business objectives,” said Michael Thaw, Vice President of Selection Services at TEC.

The TEC IT Master Plan is a systematic approach to assessing and adjusting a company’s enterprise IT architecture so that it supports current and future business objectives. More specifically, the service helps organizations:

– Align current and planned business processes to the architecture
– Mitigate potential risks and gaps in their systems
– Limit manual processes and data management
– Eliminate data duplication and redundant or obsolete applications

New Botanical Company Sets a High Bar for the Organic Standard

Naturevibe provides the highest standard for organic products while still offering competitive prices

RAHWAY, NJ, January 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Naturevibe Botanicals is one of the most exciting and innovative brands to enter the market of highly pure and organic products that have become a daily necessity for so many of us. From botanical extracts to spices to essential oils, Naturevibe focuses on integrity and purity of everything it produces. The company takes many additional steps to insure quality, while still producing one of the most competitively priced product lines in the market today. What makes Naturevibe different then many others in this field is that they take a sourced-based approach. The bar is set high for the raw materials that go into each and every product Naturevibe produces. The company works only with farmers who are totally committed to organic and in some cases fully biodynamic farming. If there is an interest in a particular product, and they cannot find the right farmers to work with, the product simply will not be produced.

“Well-being is the crux of our brand. We sell only what we use and as a result only manufacture and supply products, which we know our customers can trust without an iota of doubt about the quality,” said Rishabh Chokhani, CEO and Founder, Naturevibe. “It is heartbreaking at times when someone on our team comes up with a great idea, but we simply cannot produce it, because we cannot find a source that meets our standards.”

On the other hand, when Naturevibe finds a great opportunity they take it. Due to this strategy, the Naturevibe line of products has expanded tremendously. Naturevibe’s products include superfoods, essential oils, botanical extracts, spices, bulk teas, and holistic capsules. The company offers bulk purchases for their organic products, and even the opportunity to become a retailer. Popular products also include the Naturevibe line of superfoods, spices, essential oils, herbal raw powders, capsules, bulk teas, and much more! In the near future, Naturevibe customers can expect aromatherapy products as well.

“We began with a very narrow focus that expanded as organic farming proliferated,” said Rishabh Chokhani, CEO and Founder, Naturevibe. “It was a slow process and it was worth it. Part of our core mission is to be able to guarantee that all of our products are gluten-free, contain no preservatives, have no artificial chemicals, and are privy to ingredients which are only found occurring naturally in nature and we can stand by that.”

About Naturevibe
We, at Naturevibe, aim to provide the highest quality of organic products worldwide, thereby encouraging people to choose a healthy, nutritious, chemical-free lifestyle. We offer a wide range of products which not only add flavour to your food, but also boast of tremendous medicinal properties which prevent and treat innumerable diseases.

Our inherent belief is to only manufacture and supply products which we, ourselves are ready to consume without an iota of doubt about its quality. For more information, to become a retailer or shop, please visit: or email us at

Neighborhood Ventures Launches First AZ Crowdfunding Investment Offering in Tempe

Neighborhood Ventures (NV), Arizona’s first Crowdfunding real estate company, is pleased to announce the launch of its first investment offering: Venture on Wilson in Tempe, AZ.

PHOENIX, AZ, January 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Neighborhood Ventures (NV), Arizona’s first Crowdfunding real estate company, is pleased to announce the launch of its first investment offering: Venture on Wilson in Tempe, AZ.

Venture on Wilson is a 12-unit mid-century modern, garden style apartment community located in Downtown Tempe. The property was built in 1960 of block construction on just over 1/2 acre of land and features (10) 1 bedroom and (2) 2 bedroom floorplans with an average size of 583 square feet. John Kobierowski, Co-Founder and VP of Real Estate at Neighborhood Ventures, states:

“According to U-Haul’s recent move report, Tempe is the fastest growing city in both the state and country. Much of the economic activity and population growth for the city has been concentrated in the North Tempe/ASU Main Campus corridor which is just blocks from Venture on Wilson. Given these macro-economic drivers and strong market fundamentals, Tempe was a natural fit to launch out first investment offering.”

Jamison Manwaring, Co-Founder and VP of Investor Relations at Neighborhood Ventures, states:

My Freedom Services Launches a Unique Parole Assistance Program

My Freedom Services, an administrative support-consulting firm assists inmates to achieve parole release on time, saving taxpayers money.

NEW YORK, NY, January 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — My Freedom Services, founded in 2017 addresses the needs of inmates to get out of prison on time, saving taxpayers’ money for needless extended incarceration. This improves reform and applies to those who follow the rules! The founder was released out of prison on time because of assistance he received. He then decided to create his own company to do the same for others. My Freedom Services is an administrative provider that helps inmates prepare their parole board packages by working with their friends and family.

Its Founder identified serious problems while preparing for his own parole release during incarceration. He found that; inmates were ill-informed due to rumors, and illiteracy ran rampant at a 70% rate. There existed language barriers even within their respective ethnic groups. He began helping fellow inmates who followed the rules, participated in reform programs and took responsibility for their crimes. The success of his own efforts for himself is attributed to a formal education, ability to speak multiple languages and support from outside the prison. This facilitated his parole board package’s success. When asked “Why would you help other inmates?” He said “They needed it. They heard what I had achieved quickly within three months. And, the word about the success, spread like fire.” He did what he could by helping them fill out forms, and talked to them about how he spoke to the board.” He also reported “Rumors were all inmates had regarding parole parameters beyond outdated material distributed within the system. The information is very controlled inside the walls of prison facilities, and many times, inmates ended up serving more time than was necessary because they got it wrong, missed a deadline or weren’t adequately prepared at their first parole date. Conversely, if they do all the right things, stay out of The Box (Solitary Confinement), don’t join gangs, and participate in the reform programs available, they should qualify to be released on time. But, if they don’t express themselves well, or receive family support on paper, they prepare a weak case. Many times they served more time than was necessary.” The founder sums up with his opinion “Delayed incarcerations cost taxpayers money because it is big business, and it is all part of the Prison Industrial Complex.”

My Freedom Services provides a solution to a piece of this larger problem by moving inmates out in a timely manner. This company is not a legal service provider. It is strictly administrative working with assigned family members and friends in conjunction with their inmate. The key to My Freedom Service’s success is its ability to reach inmates who need help on the inside, work with their supporters on the outside and guide them all through the parole board package preparation process in a successful way.

My Freedom Services, was founded in 2017,
