About Medicine Man Technologies
Established in March 2014, the Company secured its first client/licensee in April 2014. To date, they have provided guidance for several clients that have successfully secured licenses to operate cannabis businesses within their respective states. It currently has twenty-seven active clients in twelve states and Puerto Rico, focusing on working with licensees and clients to 1) utilize its experience, technology, and training to help secure a license, 2) deploy the Company’s highly effective variable capacity constant harvest cultivation practices and deployment of its newly created Cultivation MAX service line eliminating single grower dependence, 3) avoid the costly mistakes generally made in start-up, and 4) stay engaged with an ever expanding team of licensees and partners, all focused on quality and safety that will ‘share’ the ever-improving experience and knowledge of the network. With their acquisition of Pono Publications and Success Nutrients that included the IP of Joshua Haupt, MDCL’s new Chief Cultivation Officer, the Company is launching several new service lines including Cultivation MAX wherein they provide cultivation guidance to underperforming grow operations in exchange for compensation related to the improvement factor as well as cost containment for these clients. With their recent acquisition of the Denver Consulting Group, the Company expects to derive additional value for its clients through the combination of that group’s experience and success in the industry with its own. The Company intend to continue to grow revenues utilizing internal as well as externally generated values that may be properly implemented into its brands development concept.
