Sublime Canna Closes $6.2M Series A
Proceeds will expand production capacity and launch new products
OAKLAND, Calif. – May 1, 2018 – Sublime Canna, an innovative cannabis manufacturing company, recently closed $6.2 million in Series A financing to increase production and launch new products to meet the growing demand for high-quality, legal cannabis products in California.
It was a big change in mindset for a bootstrapped and self-funded company like Sublime to move forward with a Series A. We realized that when we began hitting milestone run rates we would have to do a series A financing to fund expansion.
Alex Fang, CEO
The proceeds raised through the financing will be used on capital expenditures – new machinery, more state-of-the-art technology, and skilled staff to increase production capacity – as well as the purchase of raw materials for new products. Upcoming launches include Sublime’s next generation premium vape cartridges and the debut of THC-infused edibles, including low-dose mints this summer.
Sublime Canna is the first institutionally funded extraction company in California, Fang said. The company has been expanding rapidly, doubling its revenue from 2016 to 2017. According to GreenWave Advisors, an industry analyst firm, California’s legal cannabis market is projected to bring in revenue of $5.2 billion this year.
Sublime Canna also recently announced the creation of the Sublime Foundation to provide cannabis products to military veterans struggling with opioid addictions. The company has also partnered with renowned Bay Area Chef Dennis Lee, of San Francisco’s Namu Gaji restaurant, to lead its edibles manufacturing.
