In The Press
Although this is my first Cannabis venture, I don’t anticipate it being my last. I know that I will be teaming with 3C when I go through this process again. I was previously the CEO of a 150 store retail pharmacy chain, so I understand the importance and value in selecting the right consultant. Our group would extend 3C our highest recommendation and our utmost confidence.

I have worked with many consultants in the past, but I have NEVER seen such a great team working so hard to succeed on an application. I am and will forever be impressed about you, and how fast and professionally you took the approach on this task.

Nic and 3C were a significant help to my indoor cultivation operation. Their unique knowledge allowed me to increase yields and develop processes that saved me time, energy, and money. 3C offered advice on nearly every aspect of my grow from propagation, ventilation and lighting to plant nutrition, pest control, and harvesting. I implemented the suggestions successfully and would recommend 3C’s services without hesitation. I will definitely utilize their services in the future, especially when I am developing my next site.

As more and more cannabis consumers are purchasing extracts, processors are continuously striving for better and safer extraction methods. While various extraction methods still exist, the current winner seems to be supercritical CO2 extraction for cannabis products.
What Is Supercritical CO2 Extraction?
Supercritical CO2 extraction involves using controlled temperature and pressure to create phase (or state of matter) changes in CO2 (carbon dioxide) for the purpose of extracting cannabis plant material while maintaining the integrity and amounts of terpenes found in the plant material. At the same time, it protects cannabinoids from decarboxylation during the extraction process. The phase changes (for example, from gas to liquid) in CO2 allow you to separate out plant material of different weights during the extraction process.
Just like any other industry as cannabis companies mature, valuable collaborations become apparent and big businesses enter the space. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are already happening in the cannabis industry and more cannabis business mergers and acquisitions are inevitable in the near future. Case in point, in October, 2017, Constellation Brands purchased a 10% stake in Canopy Growth Corporation for $191 million. Constellation Brands owns Corona and other beer brands. Canopy Growth Corp. sells medical marijuana in Canada and is planning to sell it for recreational use as soon as it becomes legal there in the summer of 2018. According to a recent article, “Canada’s cannabis players are looking to mergers to scale up and stave off competition.”
There is strong interest among pharma, agricultural and tobacco businesses to enter the cannabis market. In the U.S., however, federal law is currently keeping the majority of these large businesses on the sidelines. Cannabis businesses in the U.S. have a unique opportunity to prepare for potential mergers and acquisitions that will certainly get underway as soon as federal regulations allow.
