CannaKorp, the Massachusetts-based manufacturer of a patent-pending cannabis pod-based vaporizing system, the CannaCloud, is raising $2mm in a private placement for accredited investors, according to a Form D SEC filing from July 5th. The equity offering follows earlier capital raises of $1.6mm in a convertible note seed round in early 2016 and an oversubscribed $4.1mm Series A equity round in Q4.
According to the filing, the company has already raised $411,400 since June 21st from 6 investors, including $51,900 from a non-US investor. CannaKorp will earn revenue not only from the sale of the CannaCloud devices but also from royalties related to the pre-ground portion packs sold by licensed cannabis companies.
