Larry Schnurmacher, Phyto’s founder and Managing Partner

We are speaking to individuals and family offices that want to invest in the cannabis industry but are still unsure of the laws and fear that risks are unable to be mitigated as with other investments. Over the last few months, many have decided to accept these unknowns in order to get involved early and capitalize on the future of this fast-growing industry.

Phyto II has begun deploying capital, investing in two portfolio companies: Marijuana Doctor, Florida’s leading doctor network; and Flowhub, an industry leader in compliance seed2sale and POS technology. Phyto Partners is the lead investor in Marijuana Doctor and will hold a seat on the Board of Directors.

Phyto has been incredibly helpful and we’re proud to count them as investors. Phyto has an extensive network of industry stakeholders and a deep understanding of the marketplace, with this background, they are a valuable asset.

Kyle Sherman, founder and CEO of Flowhub
