Green Peak Innovations
Vertically Integrated Medical Cannabis Company Rapidly Expanding Nationally
Green Peak Innovations is vertically integrated, meaning GPI manufactures medical cannabis products in its production facility and distributes to its dispensaries in locations across the state. In September 2016, Michigan signed legislation to establish a licensing framework for medical cannabis operators, with Green Peak being one of the very first companies to receive pre-approval for vertical integration. GPI’s vertical integration ensures the highest level of product quality and patient experience throughout the supply chain from “seed to store.” A vertically integrated model also ensures the highest levels of regulatory compliance.
