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.

Lars Nielsen
CEO, Cantiva ApS and Relief ApS

I have worked closely with the Team at 3C for more than a year, and they have exceeded my expectations. Whether they are helping cultivators optimize operations, or assisting retailers with sourcing organic products, their working knowledge of the entire value chain is evident in all that they do. They have demonstrated - with ethics and integrity - an ability to understand client needs, develop solutions and mobilize resources efficiently, effectively and in a timely manner. Simply put, the Team at 3C Consulting is world-class.

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.

Safe and Effective CO2 Extraction Methods

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.

How To Prepare Your Cannabis Business For Mergers And Acquisitions

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.

Veterans continue to push for research and access to medical marijuana. The VA has been very slow to take the initiative to conduct internal studies. Coordinating these studies requires working with multiple government agencies and this road block has diminished much of the effort from the VA. A recent victory has allowed VA doctors and pharmacist to speak to veterans about their medical marijuana use. Veteran organizations across the country see the potential of the plant and are in support of increasing access and research. ow.ly/WZIw30hXqM4 ... See MoreSee Less

Calaveras County California bans cannabis operations causing an uproar. In 2016, the county passed Measure C that provided a framework for permitting and regulating medical cannabis cultivation. The county has since collected millions of dollars in licensing fees and tax revenue from cannabis farmers. County supervisions just passed an all out ban leaving hundreds of registered cultivators out of luck for state licensure. Many legal actions are in the works yet the majority of the counties voters have consistently voted down cannabis initiatives, including Prop 64. The chances of a 2018 growing season look slim. ow.ly/71ty30hXxtm ... See MoreSee Less

Canada's cannabis stocks are starting to look like a bubble. 3C's CEO Nic Easley was quoted in a recent VICE article saying “There is so much hype and overvalue that a lot of investors who get into this now will get taken and robbed.” In 2017, the three largest publicly traded companies increased in value by 200% each. Money is flooding in and the market cap is growing. The three largest companies had a combined market cap of $14.5 billion at the end of 2017. While these same companies sold a total of around $110 million during the same period. With regulations yet to be finalized and new competing counties on the verge of entering the global export market it's hard to justify these valuations. ow.ly/KDb830hXo2i ... See MoreSee Less
