This substantial increase in the Company’s overall revenue stream is related to both internal revenue source growth as well as the Company’s Canada House Wellness (CHV) Master Licensing Agreement as announced in July of this year.
The Company reported cost of goods and services totaling $459,280 during the three months ended September 30, 2018. This is compared to $297,185 during the same time period in 2017. The increase is primarily due to an increase in overall product sales volume.

While the Company continues to grow its organic revenues, the Master Licensing Agreement as noted was responsible for a large portion of this revenue growth however, organic growth still increased to $3,782,921 in the nine months ended September 30, 2018 from $2,485,479 as related to the nine months ended September 30, 2017.
We continue to prove out our path to profitability model and demonstrate strong organic as well as one-time revenue growth as we conclude our third consecutive profitable quarter, followed closely by achieving our seventh quarter of consecutive revenue growth.

Joshua Haupt, Medicine Man Technologies Chief Operating Officer added, “With this exceptional progress and the lack of any debt, I am very excited about what our future holds as we move into 2019. With our Grow Ohio Pharma client’s Zanesville Ohio facility coming online coupled with our Calypso client’s Erie Pennsylvania facility planned for operational status in the second quarter of 2019, we have many new opportunities ahead for the Company. I also look forward to attending next week’s MJ Business Conference in Las Vegas Nevada and connecting with my many colleagues in the industry.”
