Fundamentally, I'm a trader and my decisions are day to day 60% of the time. I look over... More

  • First Time Media And Marijuana Mix: STBV Partners With GrowLife In New Studio Build 0 comments
    Jun 7, 2013 8:23 AM | about stocks: STBV, HEMP, PHOT, MJNA

    During the past 6 months, the marijuana industry has been expanding through recent developments in the United States. Recently, Strategic Global Investment (OTCPK:STBV) has taken a leap into the marijuana industry by partnering with GrowLife, Inc. (OTC:PHOT) to create GrowLife Studios: San Diego. GrowLife studios allows for a multi-channel media network for the marijuana industry. STBV has set aside their largest studio space within STBV headquarters to begin production.

    Strategic Global is now set up for multiple streams of revenue in a quickly expanding industry. States like California and Colorado have legalized marijuana allowing for a large expansion opportunity for hemp and medical marijuana producers. 15 other states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. In the past 6 months, many marijuana producers such as Hemp, Inc. (OTCPK:HEMP) and Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTCPK:MJNA) have seen outrageous amounts of growth. GrowLife itself has had a 725% increase in its first quarter revenue of the 2013 fiscal year. Furthermore, GrowLife's revenues in Q4 of 2012 also saw record highs, all due to the rapid expansion of marijuana.

    This creates a win-win scenario for both GrowLife and Strategic Global Investment by allowing expansion through the marijuana industry, and expansion for Strategic Global's technology & media. It allows STBV to market GrowLife, while GrowLife will attract an entirely new customer base for Strategic Global. According to an article from Medical Technologies, a 2011 study expected cannabis to be a $1.3 billion market with an expected growth to $8.9 billion in 2016.

    STBV is the first company to align digital advertising with the multi-billion dollar marijuana industry through GrowLife Studios. According to a press release from Internet Advertising Bureau, digital advertising hit historic highs in Q3 of 2012 of $9.3 billion. With the expanding digital advertising industry pairing up with the expanding marijuana industry, there is potential for exponential gain. GrowLife's Chairman & CEO Andrew Fellner stated, "An ability to align our company with the 'green rush' that has the potential to be a great opportunity for our shareholders. It is our intent to provide GrowLife and any partners of this project with the best production quality… In doing so, we expect to acquire a long-term customer and related revenue."

    Senate Bill 566

    A recent article in The Daily Chronic states that the Senate Bill 566 has been given the "green light" allowing the bill to be read by the California State Senate. The Bill redefines the definition of "marijuana", by excluding the term industrial hemp from marijuana. With existing laws making it illegal to engage in various transactions of marijuana, this bill will make the industrial hemp market legal opening up a whole new sector for companies like GrowLife, ultimately benefiting their new partner, STBV.

    Through the recent partnership with GrowLife, and recent development of GrowLife Studios: San Diego, STBV is on its way toward record numbers. Both the digital advertising and marijuana industry are expanding at rapid rates. STBV is creating a recipe for success by allowing these expanding industries to combine for the first time.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
