LOS ANGELES, CA, March 31, 2020 /AxisWire/ — Driven Deliveries Inc.(the “Company” or Driven) (OTC: DRVD), California’s fastest growing online cannabis retailer and direct-to-consumer delivery company announced today, that over the last 10 days the company has experienced record growth and demand with a greater than 100% increase in sales. Following California’s decision to deem Cannabis deliveries an “essential business,” Driven is increasing infrastructure to provide California customers safe access to legal cannabis through the government mandated quarantine.

“Driven Deliveries was founded on the bedrock principle of enabling universal access to cannabis to California’s population,” said Driven Deliveries’ CEO Christian Schenk. “Driven is the only service that provides deliveries to 92% of California’s population, giving millions of people access to on-demand legal cannabis from the security and safety of their own home during this very difficult time”.

Driven Deliveries’ proprietary logistics system, acquired from Budee Inc, designed to expand efficiently based on demand in a given area, performed flawlessly during the surge in demand. “Our major launch came earlier than expected,” said Sal Villanueva, President Driven Deliveries. “The operations team has done an amazing job integrating Driven’s 3 brands on a unified platform giving Driven the ability to rapidly support the additional demand,” he added.

The impact of coronavirus has required Driven to scale its driver network to meet the increase in demand. In an effort to comply with Government orders to stay home, Driven expects further growth as people continue to incorporate delivery services into their new routines.

Finally, Driven continues to innovate in ways to make delivery both easier and safer. Driven’s delivery system allows consumers to leverage electronic payment methods as well as cash, making it significantly more convenient than other options. In addition to the extra steps being taken to ensure safe deliveries through the use of protective disposable gloves and continuous sanitization, Driven is also exploring new ways that technology can be used for a contact free delivery while still meeting the ID verification requirements.

Driven Deliveries understands that anxiety and stress are increased around the country, and that both medical and recreational customers want access to cannabis without the risk of exposure associated with visiting a dispensary.

About Driven:

Driven Deliveries, Inc., is the first publicly traded cannabis delivery service operating within the United States. Founded by experienced technology and cannabis executives, the company provides e-commerce solutions, online sales, and on-demand cannabis delivery, in select cities where allowed by law.

Patient and Business Cannabis Conference Highlights the Lifestyle Brands Driving the Emerging Cannabis and Hemp Marketplaces + Elevates Cannabis and Hemp Industry Opportunities at Cox Convention Center  3.22-24.2020

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – March 4, 2020 /AxisWire/ Oklahoma Cannabis Expo [OCE] is the most exclusive and inclusive hemp, CBD and medical marijuana expo in America. The OCE is not only priceless to patients, but ‘inner circle’ industry exposure for professionals, and education for all. OCE showcases a goldmine of the most knowledgeable and successful professionals in the hemp and cannabis industries— all focused on elevating the industries, and furthering access, education and opportunities. A disruptive force in the 72B American cannabis and hemp markets, OCE aims to serve as a blueprint for the future of hemp and medical marijuana conferences — and conferences in general, as legalization marches across the United States. 

The Founder: Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran, the owner of Millennium Grown, an event production company that specializes in the hemp and cannabis arenas, and as well, is the founder of OCE. She created the expo because she saw a need to incorporate education around the plant with tremendous professional opportunities. The Mission: to elevate the B2B experience with decision-makers, while also having B2C elements for those wanting to enter the industry, with a focus on the patient. The OCE will feature emerging and sophisticated cannabis brands and experts who will explore ways that people can incorporate hemp and medical cannabis into their lifestyles, their business, their investments. The OCE will also showcase companies and service providers who capitalize on opportunities for hemp entrepreneurs, elevate the cannabis experience for patients, and provide inner circle networking for the ambitious cannabis professional. Additionally, attendees can expect live music, entertainment and concessions. 

The Next: Over 200,000 people, and 8% of Oklahoma citizens, are now medical marijuana patients after only one year since legalization, and that means “Patient Purchasing Power” [PPP]. PPP — to those who are ahead of the game and innovative within the hemp and medical cannabis industries — means massive opportunity. Knowing where to be involved, when, with who is now the inspiration for those taking the long view in their cannabis career. For patients, it’s critical to know which expo or conference to attend to get up-to-date medical information from the leading licensed medical professionals can mean success or failure in their goals to improve their health and wellness.

Tommy Chong, comedian, actor, director, activist states: Being a part of the OCE and bringing education, information and some laughs to people about the potentials of hemp and cannabis is an honor. Oklahoma has embraced the plant, patients have legal access and industry opportunities are everywhere.  It’s a great example of citizens legalizing and capitalizing on many levels. Laws are changing and minds are changing and we are all learning that this is a very important medical option, but it is also an incredible opportunity for farmers, small business owners, and investors. Totally the green rush, with silver linings: changing laws, saving lives and preventing incarcerations over a plant.

Carolyn Gerin, Author, Activist, Founder: Cannawise.co; Co-author: Road Map for Revolutionaries: Cannabis is an economic, cultural, and healing force in America, and shows no signs of stopping as long as citizens, lawmakers, policymakers, and businesses demand and fight for legalization. State by state, we see the country opening hearts and minds to the plant as legalization marches forward, and all the way to the polls. Cannawise.co is proud to co-lead the National Cannabis Industry Associations Marketing and Advertising Committee MAC2020 (Election 2020) team — we promote change through activations, campaigns, media, strategic partnerships, and data capture to move our message into action to inspire people to show up at the polls (and run for office). The upcoming presidential election will be a game-changer for our industry: by pulling together as a community and industry — as activists and change agents — we can flip the script of what we are experiencing now. My agency, Cannawise.co is proud to have branded yet another great cannabis industry thought leader and community builder: the OCE. We are thrilled to support the great state of Oklahoma and the OCE for their tireless work in bringing cannabis awareness to the heartland, and bringing forward abundance, prosperity, healing, and market leadership.

Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran, owner of Millennium Grown and Founder of the Oklahoma Cannabis Expo states: Tackling issues of stigma and legalization in our home state, the Oklahoma Cannabis Expo [OCE] is educating patients while showcasing tangible market opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs to create prosperity and job creation. We aim to create a next-level conference: where top, legitimate, hemp and cannabis brands percolate in one curated eco-system. When people know where to go, who to work with, what to buy, and how to responsibly serve and dose cannabis, the industry (local and national) becomes coaligned with patient needs and everyone wins.

New York City – March 3, 2020 /AxisWire/ The Green Market Report (GMR), the cannabis industry’s leading financial news outlet, releases its first Psychedelic Trend Report.  This nine-page, 3500-word report was created as a result GMR’s first ground-breaking, sold-out event on the emerging psychedelic market it held in NYC in January. This original report looks at the trends and companies that are paving the way for new looks at old treatments. You can download the report at greenmarketreport.com/reports.

As more municipalities and states begin to decriminalize various psychedelic products for medical treatments, the investment world has taken an interest in the emerging industry. Many cannabis industry leaders and investors have begun crossing over into the psychedelic world to start new companies and pursue new medical treatments.It was the interest in this evolving industry that caused the Green Market Report to host its first Psychedelic Investing Summit in New York City.

We have heard from our readers at Green Market Report that there is a great deal of interest in this emerging field of psychedelics and the companies that are leading the way. We’re also seeing that some cannabis investors are adding psychedelic investments to their portfolios. As we tried to research this industry, we found that information was lacking and that is what prompted us to hold our Summit and write this report.” Debra Borchardt, Co-founder & CEO of Green Market Media

This report gives a brief introduction to the uses of psychedelic treatments, the potential patient populations and the legal landscape for these compounds. It also highlights companies like Mind Medicine Inc., Atai Life Sciences, Field Trip Health and Eleusis Ltd., which are each pursuing different paths for treating patients. The report also covers the research being performed by companies like Back of the Yards Algae Sciences and the investment goals of companies Green Sky Strategies that is putting money into these endeavors.

Green Market Report will be hosting its next conference The Economics of 2020 Cannabis on April 3, in New York City featuring one panel on psychedelics and following that it will host another Psychedelic Investing Summit on July 30, in San Francisco. The report is available now on the Green Market Report website.

Papa & Barkley’s “Declaration of Clean Cannabis” defines what consumers should look for in its cannabis and CBD products and invites the industry to join the movement for transparency and clean standards 

EUREKA, Calif. – Jan. 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Papa & Barkley, the #1 California cannabis wellness company best known for its award-winning topicals and tinctures, released its Declaration of Clean Cannabisa set of principles that define the rigorous steps that their products undergo from soil to shelf in order to produce clean cannabis wellness products with premium ingredients. As the cannabis industry is still evolving at the national level, Papa & Barkley has the opportunity to lead the industry by example, while also educating consumers on what to look for when researching and purchasing cannabis and CBD products.  

We believe in clean cannabis as being at the core of what we do,” said Adam Grossman, Founder and CEO of Papa & Barkley. Our mission is to unlock the potential of cannabis to improve people’s lives, and we are committed to sourcing clean cannabis and making great products using best-in-class production methods.  

The Declaration of Clean Cannabis includes five key principles: 

  1. Organic and regenerative farming practices – Choose trusted farm partners in the U.S. who use native soil, organic and regenerative farming practices when growing both cannabis and hemp plants.   
  2. Solventless Avoid solvents and chemical extraction methods that yield isolates or distillates; employ a solventless whole plant infusion process that maintains the integrity of the plant and creates more effective products.  
  3. Whole plant infusion – By infusing the whole plant, it maintains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, chlorophyll and valuable phytonutrients; naturally infused into products without the use of chemicals or adding terpenes.
  4. Clean ingredients – Supporting ingredients such as carrier oils, essential oils and beeswax are clean, conscientiously sourced and made with no residual chemicals. 
  5. Triple-tested by third-party – To ensure the product is clean throughout the process from soil to shelf, its crucial to test the product at three stages – the input cannabis plant material, the infused oil and the final blended product. 

“We applaud Papa & Barkley for challenging others in the cannabis industry to assess their supply chain, self-regulate and triple test to provide clean cannabis products,” said Aaron Riley, President of CannaSafe. “Their principles for clean cannabis ensure product efficacy, and we’re proud to work with Papa & Barkley and be a part of the movement for leading the standard of clean in the cannabis industry.”

Leaders in Mainstream and Cannabis Media Speak to the Evolution of Billion Dollar Sector and What’s Next in 2020

With a focus on the millions pouring into the cannabis space by big business and investors and how it shapes the industry, the two-day-long event explores; 

  • how to raise money and build a media company;

We couldn’t be more excited to have some of the cannabis industry’s top writers, publicists and business people to help uncover why this new beat is important to business, policy and politics, social justice, economics and culture.” 

Program highlights include CBNC’s Timothy Seymour on his personal experience in the world of business and business reporter, Dan Adams, the Boston Globe’s first dedicated cannabis reporter on exposing shady cannabis operators informed by the Globe’s

Kristin and her team always recruit an inclusive lineup of accomplished speakers who push me to look deeper and consider new perspectives — the kind of wisdom I can’t wait to share with my readers.”

CNBC’s Jane Wells To Interview CEO of PLUS Brands, Jake Heimark

Los Angeles – August 29, 2019 /AxisWire/ After a sold-out event in Chicago, The Green Market Summit brings its business acumen and data partners to Los Angeles for two days of cannabis brand industry analysis held from September 11-12 at the historic Montalban Theatre, 1615 Vine Street, Hollywood CA. The keynote interview between CNBC’s Jane Wells and the CEO of PLUS Brands, Jake Heimark is taking place from 4:00 to 5:00 PM on day one directly after an appearance by Melissa Etheridge, Founder of Etheridge Farms.

Hosted by the Green Market Report, the cannabis industry’s premier financial news organization, this two-day event will feature a deep dive into the many aspects of branding within the cannabis industry. 

Exclusive industry information will be shared on the celebrity effect on cannabis branding featuring musician and Etheridge Farms Founder Melissa Etheridge, how to manage brand perception for public companies, the world of luxury cannabis, how to work within the media and regulatory guidelines for cannabis brands, how data can help advance your brand, CBD branding, branding at the dispensary level, and we will hear from professional athletes that now have their own brands.

“Our conferences are unique within the glut of cannabis events in that we zero in on one topic and then dig in with both hands,” said Green Market Media Co-founder and CEO, Debra Borchardt. “This makes it more valuable for our attendees because they walk away with real value-added information. You can’t get this type of nitty-gritty detail from a general topic cannabis conference.”

The audience will include cannabis industry insiders and leaders from the state of California and beyond that want to learn branding secrets that would cost thousands of dollars from consultants.

Port Richey, FL – July 31 /AxisWire/ MagicalButter.com of Pasco County, Florida has earned a spot on the 9th Annual 50 Florida Companies to Watch list, a statewide competition that identifies companies expected to see significant growth over the next several years. GrowFL, an economic development organization, announced the honorees on July 31st, 2019.

MagicalButter invented the world’s first countertop Botanical Extractor (MB2e), designed for infusing the essence of healthy herbs like cannabis, lavender, and moringa, to name a few, into butter, oil, tinctures, lotions, and more.

The top 50 companies were selected from more than 500 nominees. All honorees are considered “second-stage” companies — those with six to 150 full-time employees and $750,000 to $100 million in annual revenue. Elements they share include: strong management team, competitive market position, strong community involvement, innovative products, and empowered employees.

“These stand-out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow,” Dr. Tom O’Neal, GrowFL executive director, said in announcing the honorees. “They also all have critical intellectual property or a niche position that gives them a competitive edge in their markets.”

MagicalButter’s CEO, Garyn Angel, saw a need for an effective and affordable decarboxylation method for health conscious consumers who wanted to make herbal products at home, and invented the DecarBox in 2017. This high-grade silicone shell and digital thermometer probe was the first of it’s kind and created a new category in the industry.

The cannabis edibles market has more than doubled since 2011, according to ArcView Research and BDS Analytics, and could be worth more than $4.1 billion in Canada and the United States by 2022, making it a promising opportunity for investment. Demand for MB2e has risen in parallel and MagicalButter has expanded to Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

MagicalButter not only caters to recreational consumers, but has also carved out a unique niche as a cannabis culinary resource for chefs, business owners, and patients across the globe. The MB2e helps consumers easily integrate cannabis into their diet.

MagicalButter has also developed a line of hemp-derived CBD products in the pet, beauty, and wellness categories. Hemp is a new and fast-growing category that MagicalButter is set to dominate.
