In an email, CEO Isaac Dietrich stated:
At its core, technology enables people to do more with less and when applied to the cannabis sector, will enable patients to more effectively communicate, allow businesses to make data-driven decisions to better serve their customers, and empower the industry to operate in a safer and more efficient manner. We’re incredibly grateful and excited for this opportunity to share our vision for the cannabis industry at one of the largest gatherings of technology enthusiasts, investors and media in the world.
