Publicly Traded Cannabis Companies and Industry Acquisitions
By The Real Dirt with Chip Baker
Brett Roper is CEO of Medicine Man Technologies Inc., one of the country’s leading cannabis brand development and consulting companies. Since April 2014, when he and Andy Williams established the company, they have consulted more than 27 companies in securing licenses and operating cannabis cultivation facilities. What makes Medicine Man Technologies extremely unique is that they are a publicly traded cannabis company. As a “penny stock” they only release shares of their company as part of a qualified plan, an acquisition or contract for services. As Brett stated, “We like to see people that work with us – for investor relations and public relations – have the same incentive that we have in growing our stocks value.” In June of this year, Medicine Man Technologies made headlines for acquiring Denver Consulting Group LLC, Pono Publications (Three a Light) and Success Nutrients. Listen in as Chip Baker and Brett Roper talk about what it means to be a publicly traded cannabis company, the future of cannabis company acquisitions, investments and more on this episode of The Real Dirt with Chip Baker.
