ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 2, 2001 under the name Altus Explorations Inc. (Altus) as a company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of oil and natural gas properties. The company has not been able to secure sufficient financing to act on oil and gas investment opportunities as they were identified. Therefore, we did very little business and showed very limited activity, with no profitability. In September 2010 we chose to enter the expanding field of training of peace and law enforcement officers as well as other professionals involved in the fields of security and safety oriented civilian training at both the individual and corporate levels. and entered into an agreement, in principle, to purchase Canadian Tactical Training Academy Inc. from UWD Unitas World Development Inc. (UNITAS), a private Canadian company. We refer to this asset purchase transaction as the Acquisition. On October 1, 2010, Altus entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the Agreement) with Unitas. Pursuant to the Agreement, Altus issued 80,000,000 shares of common stock for the acquisition of 450 shares of common stock of The Canadian Tactical Training Academy Inc., representing 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, which were held by UWD. On November 4, 2010, Altus changed its name to Canadian Tactical Training Academy Inc. (CTTA) (the Company subsequently changed its name to Earth Life Sciences Inc. on June 2, 2014) and increased the authorized share capital from 40,000,000 to 250,000,000 shares of common stock and then further from 250,000,000 to 450,000,000. On December 4, 2018 the authorized share capital was increased 500,000,000 common shares.
INVESTMENT IN MARIJUANA AND/OR HEMP PRODUCTS
The Company is considering a project in the marijuana market. Several companies have entered this market attracted by the potential for growth. The Company became interested in the marijuana business in 2016. The Company subcontracted the writing of a business plan, the first draft being available on June 1, 2017 and a final draft available on July 23, 2018. The draft business plan had covered the following subject areas:
|TABLE OF CONTENTS|
|I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY||3|
|II. BUSINESS STRATEGY||5|
|III. MARKETING STRATEGY||8|
|IV. OPERATIONAL PLAN||17|
|V. SWOT ANALYSIS||20|

|XI. ADDITIONAL RESOURCES||37|
|XII. PRODUCT PROFILES||40|
|XIII. PRODUCT MOCKUPS||45|
The Company contemplated the production of cannabis plants in various locations. Meetings were held with knowledgeable practitioners in Denver, CO, the Okanagan and Montreal, PQ on several occasions.
There are numerous business issues in the contemplation of an entry into the marijuana marketplace:
|Recreational marijuana legalization|
|Personal recreational use|
|Medical marijuana uses and legalization|
|Marijuana businesses may not be able to secure bank accounts or transfer funds|
|Federal vs. State laws and or Provincial|
|State marijuana laws and rules are not uniform from state to state and they can and do change constantly|
As well there are severe legal and disclosure issues:
|Marijuana is federally illegal|
|Investors risk criminal liability and the cannabis businesss assets are subject to forfeiture|
|IRC 280E – cannabis companies are unable to deduct expenses|
The Company is considering the various aspects of the marijuana business and will not enter this space until satisfactory answers are in hand. Although there appears to be several companies entering the marijuana space, and investors seem to have an appetite, the Company is being careful and has not entered into any agreements or contracts in growing, preparing, inspecting, advising, shipping, purchasing, sampling or selling any marijuana preparations.
The following is a discussion of status hemp plants in the United States and Canada. (Any discussion on hemp plants has to include the comparison to marijuana.)
Difference between marijuana and hemp plants:
Hemp vary from marijuana in its appearance, function, cultivation and applications. Marijuana leaves are either broad leafed, a tight bud, or look like a nugget with hairs, and it resembles a short fat bush. Hemp has skinny leaves concentrated at the top with a few branches below and the plant tends to be skinny and tall. Hemp plants originally were grown to make rope. In the 1800s it was customary and sometimes mandatory to grow hemp pertaining to its use in the military. More recently marijuana plants have been crossed with hemp plants and now contain cannabidiols (CBD) oils
Marijuana plants contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is considered a drug and is responsible for the high (psychological) effects, with marijuana plants containing from 5-30%. Hemp (to be legal) has a THC level of less than 0.3%, essentially eliminating any effect to get a high.
Marijuana plants can also have a high cannabidiol (CBD) content. Hemp plants do not normally have a high CBD content if any at all. Both marijuana and hemp plants containing any amount of CBD are treated as Schedule I drugs under the Controlled Substances Act in the United States. About 30 states have various regulations for the distribution of marijuana and hemp products exceeding allowed limits. On October 17, 2018, CBD became legal for recreational and medical use in Canada.
Market for the Company:
The main purpose of hemp plant extracts is in the belief that various ingredients are beneficial for your health. In addition to sub threshold amounts of THC and CBD content, there are ample amounts of essential fatty acids - omega-3 (ALA) and omega-6 (LA) from a plant-based source. It is interesting to note that vitamin E in the form of tocopherols are naturally present in hemp plants guarding against oxidation of the fatty acids. Fatty acids deteriorate in the presence of air.
The Company has met with several potential partners in the United States and Canada. Various pieces of land have been identified as prospects having a good water supply and suitable soil conditions. The Company is very excited at the possibility of growing hemp in the spring of 2020 partnering with landowners and farmers. The Company has access to a grower, extractor, retail sales expert, that is available to participate either as an advisor or a vendor.
After appropriate consultation, the Company has decided to postpone its entry into the marijuana market until federal regulations are put in place. There are several groups and organizations presently in the marijuana space and we will watch their performance first. We are devoting our energies into the hemp marketplace.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
RISK FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH OUR BUSINESS
You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below and the other information in this annual report. These are not the only risks we face. Additional risks and uncertainties that we are not aware of or that we currently deem immaterial also may impair our business. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business, financial condition and operating results could be materially adversely affected.
Much of the information included in this annual report includes or is based upon estimates, projections or other forward-looking statements.
Such forward-looking statements include any projections or estimates made by us and our management in connection with our business operations. While these forward-looking statements, and any assumptions upon which they are based, are made in good faith and reflect our current judgment regarding the direction of our business, actual results will almost always vary, sometimes materially, from any estimates, predictions, projections, assumptions, or other future performance suggested herein. We undertake no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of such statements.
Such estimates, projections or other forward-looking statements involve various risks and uncertainties as outlined below. Again, we caution readers of this annual report that important factors in some cases have affected and, in the future, could materially affect actual results and cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed in any such estimates, projections or other forward-looking statements. In evaluating us, our business and any investment in our business, readers should carefully consider the following factors.
WE HAVE A LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY.
We have a limited operating history upon which an evaluation of our future prospects can be made. Our business history has been limited to oil and gas exploration, mineral exploration and the training of law enforcement personnel and personal security. Since inception, our operation has been generating losses and we cannot give assurances that we will be successful in generating profits in the future.
We are regarded as a new or start-up venture with all of the unforeseen costs, expenses, problems, and difficulties to which such ventures are subject to. We cannot give assurances that we will be able to raise the financing necessary to maintain our current operation. Therefore, you may lose your entire investment in us.
BECAUSE WE HAVE HISTORICALLY INCURRED LOSSES AND THESE LOSSES MAY INCREASE IN THE FUTURE, WE MUST BEGIN GENERATING A PROFIT FROM OUR OPERATIONS. IF WE DO NOT BEGIN GENERATING A PROFIT WE MAY HAVE TO SUSPEND OR CEASE OPERATIONS.
We have never been profitable. If we do not obtain additional financing or begin generating revenues within the next year, we will have to reduce or suspend or operations. In order to become profitable, we will need to generate significant revenues to offset our cost of revenues, sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative expenses. We may not achieve or sustain our revenue or profit objectives and our losses may continue or increase in the future in which case you might lose your investment.
WE HAVE A LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY AND IF WE ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL IN CONTINUING TO GROW OUR BUSINESS, THEN WE MAY HAVE TO SCALE BACK OR EVEN CEASE OUR ONGOING BUSINESS OPERATIONS.
We have no history of substantial revenues from operations. We have yet to generate positive earnings and there can be no assurance that we will ever operate profitably. Our company has a limited operating history and our success is significantly dependent on increased sales and new product offerings.
We will be subject to all the risks inherent in the establishment of a developing enterprise and the uncertainties arising from the absence of a significant operating history. We may be unable to increase sales or operate on a profitable basis. We are in the development stage and potential investors should be aware of the difficulties normally encountered by enterprises in the development stage. If our business plan is not successful, and we are not able to operate profitably, investors may lose some or all of their investment in our company.
Significant investment risks and operational costs are associated with our exploration, development and mining activities. These risks and costs may result in lower economic returns and may adversely affect our business.
Mineral exploration is frequently unproductive. If mineralization is discovered, it may take a number of years until production is possible, during which time the economic viability of the Project may change.
Development projects may have no operating history upon which to base estimates of future operating costs and capital requirements. Development project items such as estimates of reserves, recoveries and cash operating costs are to a large extent based upon the interpretation of geologic data, obtained from a limited number of sampling techniques, and feasibility studies. Estimates of cash operating costs are then derived based upon anticipated tonnage to be processed, the configuration of the ore body, expected recovery rates, comparable facility and equipment costs, anticipated climate conditions and other factors. As a result, actual cash operating costs and economic returns of any and all development projects may materially differ from the costs and returns estimated, and accordingly, our financial condition and results of operations may be negatively affected.
BECAUSE OF THE EARLY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT AND THE NATURE OF OUR BUSINESS, OUR SECURITIES ARE CONSIDERED HIGHLY SPECULATIVE.
Our securities must be considered highly speculative, generally because of the nature of our business and the early stage of our development. Since we have not generated any revenues, we will have to raise additional monies through the sale of our equity securities or debt in order to continue our business operations.
BECAUSE THE MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK IS LIMITED, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO RESELL YOUR SHARES OF COMMON STOCK.
There is currently a limited trading market for our common stock. Our common stock trades on the OTC Bulletin Board operated by the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. under the symbol CLTS. As a result, you may not be able to resell your securities in open market transactions.
BECAUSE THE SEC IMPOSES ADDITIONAL SALES PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS ON BROKERS WHO DEAL IN OUR SHARES THAT ARE PENNY STOCKS, SOME BROKERS MAY BE UNWILLING TO TRADE THEM. THIS MEANS THAT YOU MAY HAVE DIFFICULTY IN RESELLING YOUR SHARES AND MAY CAUSE THE PRICE OF THE SHARES TO DECLINE.
Our shares qualify as penny stocks and are covered by Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker/dealers who sell our securities in this offering or in the aftermarket. In particular, prior to selling a penny stock, broker/dealers must give the prospective customer a risk disclosure document that: contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; contains a description of the broker/dealers duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to violations of such duties or other requirements of Federal securities laws; contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask prices; contains the toll free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions established pursuant to section 15(A)(i); defines significant terms used in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and contains such other information, and is in such form (including language, type size, and format), as the SEC requires by rule or regulation. Further, for sales of our securities, the broker/dealer must make a special suitability determination and receive from you a written agreement before making a sale to you. Because of the imposition of the foregoing additional sales practices, it is possible that brokers will not want to make a market in our shares. This could prevent you from reselling your shares and may cause the price of the shares to decline.
TRADING OF OUR STOCK MAY BE RESTRICTED BY THE SECS PENNY STOCK REGULATIONS WHICH MAY LIMIT A STOCKHOLDERS ABILITY TO BUY AND SELL OUR STOCK.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted regulations which generally define penny stock to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and accredited investors. The term accredited investor refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse.
The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the SEC which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customers account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customers confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchasers written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in and limit the marketability of, our common stock.
WE DO NOT EXPECT TO DECLARE OR PAY ANY DIVIDENDS.
We have not declared or paid any dividends on our common stock since our inception, and we do not anticipate paying any such dividends for the foreseeable future.
\We do not currently have a shareholder rights plan or any anti-takeover provisions in our By-laws. Without any anti-takeover provisions, there is no deterrent for a take-over of our company, which may result in a change in our management and directors.
OUR BY-LAWS CONTAIN PROVISIONS INDEMNIFYING OUR OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS AGAINST ALL COSTS, CHARGES AND EXPENSES INCURRED BY THEM.
Our By-laws contain provisions with respect to the indemnification of our officers and directors against all costs, charges and expenses, including an amount paid to settle an action or satisfy a judgment, actually and reasonably incurred by him, including an amount paid to settle an action or satisfy a judgment in a civil, criminal or administrative action or proceeding to which he is made a party by reason of his being or having been one of our directors or officers.
ITEM 2. DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY
Descriptions of properties are contained in the Business discussion in this Report.
ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
From time to time we may be involved in litigation incidental to the conduct of our business, such as contractual matters and employee-related matters. Currently, we are not a party to any material legal proceeding or litigation, whether current or threatened, nor are any of our officers, directors or affiliates, a party adverse to us in any legal proceeding or litigation.
ITEM 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS
No matters were submitted to a vote of shareholders.
ITEM 5. MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS AND PURCHASE OF EQUITY SECURITIES
Our authorized number of shares is 500,000,000.
On June 2, 2014 we declared a reverse stock split and each shares of common stock outstanding were replaced by one fortieth of a share of common stock. No fractional shares were issued. As of that date and following the reverse split of the stock, we had a total of 632,277 common shares issued and outstanding.
On April 25, 2014, we converted $55,000 of convertible debt into 184,375 shares of common stock (pre-split 59,000,000 shares.)
As of December 31, 2014, there were 169 holders of record of our common stock. As of such date, 816,656 common shares were issued and outstanding.
On June 10, 2015, the we declared a further reverse stock split and each shares of common stock outstanding were replaced by one eighth of a share of common stock. No fractional shares were issued.
On July 15, 2016, we converted $45,000 of debt into 45 million restricted shares giving rise to stock=based compensation of $1,305,000.
In December of 2018, the Company issued 62,000,000 common restricted shares at a price of $0.001 per share giving rise to stock-based compensation of $399,938.
At December 31, 2018 the Company had issued shares of 332,817,339.
Our common shares are issued in registered form. ClearTrust LLC, 16540 Pointe Village Drive, Suite 210, Lutz, FL, 33558 (Telephone: 813-235-4490; Facsimile: 813-388-4549) is the registrar and transfer agent for our common shares. We have no other exchangeable securities.
We have not paid any cash dividends on our common stock and have no present intention of paying any dividends on the shares of our common stock. Our current policy is to retain earnings, if any, for use in our operations and in the development of our business. Our future dividend policy will be determined from time to time by our board of directors.
ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS AND PLAN OF OPERATION
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
TWELVE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2018 AND 2017
Our net loss for the year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $437,993 compared to our net loss of $6,788,863 for the year ended December 31, 2017.
Pursuant to the issuance of 62,000,000 common restricted shares at a price of $0.001 per share, the Company calculated stock-based compensation expense of $399,938.
In 2018 the Company expended $nil on the White Channel property (2017 - $3,3668) in field exploration and development. In October of 2017 the Company decided to terminate exploration and development on the White Channel property and wrote off the acquisition costs of $6,750,000.
Office and general consisted mainly of filing and transfer agent fees of $4,538.
Consulting fees were incurred in proposals to enter into marijuana and hemp projects, and preparation of a business plan.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
If we are unsuccessful in obtaining financing and fail to achieve and sustain a profitable level of operations, we may be unable to fully implement our business plans or continue operations. Future financing through equity, debt or other sources could result in the dilution of Company equity, increase our liabilities, and/or restrict the future availability and use of cash resources. Additionally, there can be no assurance that adequate financing will be available to us when needed or, if available, that it can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If we are not able to obtain the additional financing on a timely basis, we will be unable to execute our business plans, and will be required to scale back the pace and magnitude of our oil and gas prospects drilling and development initiatives. We also may not be able to meet our vendor and service provider obligations as they become due. In such event, we will be forced to cease our operations.
During the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2019, we project cash requirements of approximately $100,000 as we continue to restructure our activities.
Our estimated funding needs for the next twelve months are summarized below:
Estimated Funding Required During the Twelve Month Period Ending December 31, 2019
|Operating, general and administrative costs||$||50,000|
|Mining Claim costs||50,000|
PURCHASE OF SIGNIFICANT EQUIPMENT
We do not intend to purchase any significant equipment over the next twelve months ending December 31, 2019.
APPLICATION OF CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Our financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by managements application of accounting policies. We believe that understanding the basis and nature of the estimates and assumptions involved with the following aspects of our consolidated financial statements is critical to an understanding of our balance sheet, the statements of operations and stockholders equity, and the cash flows statements included elsewhere in this filing.
ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The financial statements are attached to this report following the signature page. Management prepared financial statements have been prepared for the year ended December 31, 2018 and 2017. The Company has engaged the auditors to audit management prepared financial statements.
ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE.
In February 2016, we retained BF Borgers CPAs to be the Companys PCAOB auditor.
ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as required by Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(b) as of December 31, 2018 (the Evaluation Date). Based on that evaluation, the Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the Evaluation Date as a result of the material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting discussed below.
Disclosure controls and procedures are those controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act are recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SECs rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Notwithstanding the assessment that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective and that there were material weaknesses as identified below, we believe that our financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 fairly present our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows in all material respects.
Managements Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. The Companys internal control over financial reporting is a process, under the supervision of the management, designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Companys financial statements for external purposes in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:
|●||Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the Companys assets;|
|●||Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of the financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and the Board of Directors; and|
|●||Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the Companys assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.|
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
The Companys management conducted an assessment of the effectiveness of the Companys internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2018, based on criteria established in Internal Control –Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). As a result of this assessment, management identified a material weakness in internal control over financial reporting.
A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Companys annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
The material weakness identified is described below.
entity level controls establishing a tone at the top were considered material weaknesses. As of December 31, 2018,
the Company did not have a separate audit committee or a policy on fraud. A whistleblower policy is not necessary given the small size of the organization.
|2.||Due to the significant number and magnitude of out-of-period adjustments identified during the year- end closing process, management has concluded that the controls over the period-end financial reporting process were not operating effectively. A material weakness in the period-end financial reporting process could result in us not being able to meet our regulatory filing deadlines and, if not remediated, has the potential to cause a material misstatement or to miss a filing deadline in the future. Management override of existing controls is possible given the small size of the organization and lack of personnel.|
|3.||There is no system in place to review and monitor internal control over financial reporting. The Company maintains an insufficient complement of personnel to carry out ongoing monitoring responsibilities and ensure effective internal control over financial reporting.|
As a result of the material weakness in internal control over financial reporting described above, the Companys management has concluded that, as of December 31, 2018, the Companys internal control over financial reporting was not effective based on the criteria in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by COSO.
Changes in Internal Controls
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

None of our directors, executive officers, promoters or control persons has been involved in any of the following events during the past five years:
|1.||any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time;|
|2.||any conviction in a criminal proceeding or being subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offences);|
|3.||being subject to any order, judgment, or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities; or|

SECTION 16(A) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP COMPLIANCE
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who own more than 10% of our common stock, to file reports regarding ownership of, and transactions in, our securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission and to provide us with copies of those filings. Based solely on our review of the copies of such forms received by us, or written representations from certain reporting persons, we believe that during fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, all filing requirements applicable to its officers, directors and greater than ten percent beneficial owners were complied with.
CODE OF ETHICS
Effective February 27, 2004, the Companys board of directors adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that applies to, among other persons, members of our Board of Directors, our companys officers including our president (being our principal executive officer) and our companys chief financial officer (being our principal financial and accounting officer), contractors, consultants and advisors. As adopted, our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets forth written standards that are designed to deter wrongdoing and to promote:
|1.||honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships;|
|2.||full, fair, accurate, timely, and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that we file with, or submit to, the Securities and Exchange Commission and in other public communications made by us;|
|3.||compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations|
|4.||the prompt internal reporting of violations of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to an appropriate person or persons identified in the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics; and|
|5.||accountability for adherence to the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.|
Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics requires, among other things, that all of the Companys personnel shall be accorded full access to our president and secretary with respect to any matter which may arise relating to the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. Further, all of our companys personnel are to be accorded full access to our companys board of directors if any such matter involves an alleged breach of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics by our Company officers.
In addition, our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics emphasizes that all employees, and particularly managers and/or supervisors, have a responsibility for maintaining financial integrity within our company, consistent with generally accepted accounting principles, and federal, provincial and state securities laws. Any employee who becomes aware of any incidents involving financial or accounting manipulation or other irregularities, whether by witnessing the incident or being told of it, must report it to his or her immediate supervisor or to our companys president or secretary. If the incident involves an alleged breach of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics by the president or secretary, the incident must be reported to any member of our board of directors. Any failure to report such inappropriate or irregular conduct of others is to be treated as a severe disciplinary matter. It is against our company policy to retaliate against any individual who reports in good faith the violation or potential violation of our companys Code of Business Conduct and Ethics by another.
Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 14.1.
The Board of Directors currently has no standing audit committee, compensation committee, or nominating committee.

|EARTH LIFE SCIENCES INC.|
|NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS|
|December 31, 2018|
NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF BUSINESS
Earth Life Sciences Inc. (the Company) was incorporated in the state of Nevada on November 2, 2001. Originally the corporate name was Altus Explorations, Inc. On June 2, 2014 the Company changed its name to Earth Life Sciences Inc.
On October 1, 2010, the Company entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the Agreement) with UWD Unitas World Development Inc. (UWD), a privately held Canadian incorporated company. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company issued 80,000,000 shares of common stock for the acquisition 100% of the issued shares of Canadian Tactical Training Academy Inc (CTTA). The Company operations consisted of the training of law enforcement, security, investigation and protection for officers and individuals. During the year ended December 31, 2015 the Company discontinued the operations of CTTA and returned the shares of CTTA.
On June 12, 2015, the Company, through an option agreement, issued 225,000,000 shares to Mr. Song Bo, to earn the mineral rights for the White Channel mineral claims located in British Columbia. The Company embarked on mineral exploration program. During the year ended December 31, 2017 the Company terminated the exploration and development of the White Channel property.
The Company has been considering an entry into the marijuana market, starting in 2016. The Company developed a business plan and is contemplating an entry into the marijuana and/or the hemp marketplace.
These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company is unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. The continuation of the Company as a going concern and the ability of the Company to emerge from the Development stage are dependent upon managements successful efforts to raise additional equity financing to continue operations and generate sustainable significant revenues.
These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The Company will require significant additional financial resources and will be dependent on future financings to fund its ongoing operations as well as other working capital requirements. There is no guarantee that management will be able to raise adequate equity financings or generate profits from operations. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Companys ability to continue as a going concern.
Management of the Company has undertaken steps as part of a plan with the goal of sustaining Company operations for the next twelve months and beyond. These steps include: (a) continuing efforts to raise additional capital and/or other forms of financing; and (b) controlling overhead and expenses. Management is aware that material uncertainties exist, related to current economic conditions, which could cast a doubt about the Companys ability to continue to finance its activities. It is to be expected that the Company may incur further losses in the Development of its business and there can be no assurance that any of these efforts will be successful.
NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US GAAP) and are expressed in U.S. dollars. The Companys fiscal year-end is December 31.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates and assumptions. Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to the determination of impairment of long-lived assets, expected tax rates for future income tax recoveries and determining the fair values of financial instruments.
Equipment is recorded at cost. Additions are capitalized and maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Gains and losses on dispositions of equipment are reflected in operations. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets.
Impairment of Assets
The Company reviews the carrying value of its long-lived assets annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical carrying value of an asset may no longer be appropriate. The Company assesses recoverability of the carrying value cost of the asset by estimating the future net cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. If the future net cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the assets carrying value and fair value.
Other Comprehensive Income
The Company reports and displays comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements. During the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company recorded unrealized foreign exchange gains of $nil and $nil respectfully.
The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.
The Company recognizes the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting this standard, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority.
Basic and Diluted Loss per Share
Basic loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution that could occur if potentially dilutive securities were exercised or converted to common stock. The dilutive effect of options and warrants and their equivalent is computed by application of the treasury stock method and the effect of convertible securities by the if converted method. For the years presented, diluted loss per share is equal to basic loss per share as the effect of the computations are anti-dilutive.
The Companys balance sheet includes financial instruments, specifically accounts payable, accrued expenses, and payables to related parties. The carrying amounts of current assets and current liabilities approximate their fair value because of the relatively short period of time between the origination of these instruments and their expected realization.
ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy that distinguishes between (1) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs) and (2) an entitys own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available in the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The fair value hierarchy consists of three broad levels, which gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:
Level 1 - Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities
Level 2 - Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, including quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates); and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
Level 3 - Inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.
Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of December 31, 2018. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments.
The Company follows ASC 605, Revenue Recognition -The Company recognizes revenue when it is realized or realizable and earned. The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) the product has been shipped or the services have been rendered to the customer, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured. The Company provides services to companies on a time and materials basis and recognizes revenues upon billing of time and materials at which all services have been completed and there is no warranty or returns on services.
Deferred Income Taxes and Valuation Analysis
The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740 Income Taxes. Under the asset and liability method of ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations. No deferred tax assets or liabilities were recognized as of December 31, 2018 or December 31, 2017.
Net Income (loss) per Common Share
Net income (loss) per share is calculated in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. The weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period is used to compute basic earning or loss per share. Diluted earnings or loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares and diluted potential common shares outstanding. Dilutive potential common shares are additional common shares assumed to be exercised.
Basic net income (loss) per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding at December 31, 2018 and at December 31, 2017.
Share Based Compensation
ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, prescribes accounting and reporting standards for all share-based payment transactions in which employee services are acquired. Transactions include incurring liabilities, or issuing or offering to issue shares, options, and other equity instruments such as employee stock ownership plans and stock appreciation rights. Share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, are recognized as compensation expense in the financial statements based on their fair values. That expense is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide services in exchange for the award, known as the requisite service period (usually the vesting period).
The Company accounts for stock-based compensation issued to non-employees and consultants in accordance with the provisions of ASC 505-50, Equity – Based Payments to Non-Employees. Measurement of share-based payment transactions with non-employees is based on the fair value of whichever is more reliably measurable: (a) the goods or services received; or (b) the equity instruments issued.
Share-based expense for the periods ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 totaled $nil and $nil, respectively.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02). ASU 2016-02 will require lessees to recognize on the balance sheet the assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by those leases. Under ASU 2016-02, a lessee will be required to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with terms of more than 12 months. Lessor accounting remains substantially similar to current GAAP. In addition, disclosures of leasing activities are to be expanded to include qualitative along with specific quantitative information. ASU 2016-02 will be effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 (with early adoption permitted). ASU 2016-02 mandates a modified retrospective transition method. The Company does not expect this amendment to have a material impact on its financial statements.
NOTE 3 – CONVERTIBLE NOTE PAYABLE
As at December 31, 2018, the Company had a convertible note payable totaling $32,720 (2017 - $32,720). The convertible note was issued in 2011 and has no interest rate and no fixed terms of repayment. The Note is convertible into common shares at $0.001 per share. Currently, the note could be converted to 32,720,000 shares.
NOTE 4– COMMON STOCK
As at December 31, 2018, the Company had 500,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common shares authorized.
NOTE 5 - INCOME TAXES
The Company is subject to United States federal and state income taxes at an approximate rate of 35%. The amount taken into income as deferred income tax assets must reflect that portion of the income tax loss carry forwards that is more likely-than-not to be realized from future operations. The Company has chosen to provide a full valuation allowance against all available income tax loss carry forwards, regardless of their time of expiry.
No provision for income taxes has been provided in these financial statements due to the net loss for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017. The potential tax benefit of these losses may be limited due to certain change in ownership provisions under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code and similar state provisions.
