CANNABIS INVESTMENT OVERVIEW

Cannabis Grow Investment

Legal cannabis revenue will hit $23.4 billion in the U.S. market by 2022 and hemp-derived CBD products are projected to reach $22 billion in the U.S. that same year.  Early investment in emerging industries is the key to making money!  Aligning with trusted partners, who have proven records of success in cannabis, sets us apart. Our cannabis ecosystem is fully operational at all levels, and is scaling daily.  Our team creates soil-to-sale solutions for every level of the cannabis industry.

Problem

Social Equity is a part of most—if not all—cannabis legislation.  As states, cities and municipalities pass cannabis laws a portion of all licenses are set aside for social impact.  While the aim is to reverse the socio-economic devastation caused by the War On Drugs (WOD), the legislation falls far short of its intended goals for new licensees.  


The failure of social equity legislation to address the needs of social equity license holder creates the demand for a trusted, proven, fully-integrated, toward-thinking business that identifies and develops cannabis talent with sliding fee structure. 


The aim of Social Equity in cannabis is to produce and empower minority entrepreneurs, and individuals affected by the WOD.  As more and more states legalize cannabis, there is a tremendous opportunity to create an ecosystem that provides training to entrepreneurs of color and social equity license holders seeking entry at every level of the cannabis industry.
