CHICAGO, Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Cresco Labs announced today that CEO Charlie Bachtell will be speaking at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference being held in Toronto this week at the Arcadian. He will lead a discussion on how to execute unique cannabis business ideas in the fast-emerging industry.
As a leader in this industry that has been on the forefront of developing name brands, expanding across the United States and raising capital, I look forward to sharing my perspective with the audience. This is the premier gathering of entrepreneurs and investors in the cannabis industry today and I’m honored to be participating in this conference.
Cresco Labs CEO Charlie Bachtell
Cresco Labs is one of the fastest-growing companies in the cannabis industry today, making Bachtell a highly sought-after speaker at industry insider events. Most recently, Bachtell has been tapped to speak at the University of Chicago’s Booth Entrepreneurial Roundtable and the Cannacord Annual Growth Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. He will be following up this successful series of capital events with the Benzinga Conference on the 16th of August in Toronto.
Bachtell will be participating in a panel discussion about the most potentially lucrative opportunities in cannabis that are outside the realm of the actual cannabis plant and cannabinoid production.
“Cresco Labs has a suite of branded products because we see an iconic brand with name recognition and national footprint as the upside in this business as commoditization takes place,” Bachtell said. “Coca Cola doesn’t argue when the price of sugar goes down—when cannabis becomes just an ingredient, this industry will be like that.”
Cresco Labs recently announced a multi-state expansion which will give them the largest geographic footprint of any US based cannabis company. Their brands (Cresco, Remedi, Reserve and Mindy’s Edibles, an infused edible line with James Beard Award-Winning Chef Mindy Segal) provide a full suite of products including flower, edibles, vape pens/cartridges, and multiple forms of extracts catering to all consumers, from the novice to connoisseur and medically-minded to recreational user.
Cresco Labs is currently seeking additional investment to continue their aggressive expansion strategy. For more information, please visit www.crescolabs.com.
