California-based edibles company Plus snagged two million dollars
in a Series A financing led by The Green Opportunity Funds. The Series A Preferred Stock will be used to develop an automated production line and general corporate purposes. Matt Schmidt of The Green Opportunity Funds
will join the board of directors.
“We are at an inflection point in the cannabis industry in California as recreational sales are set to begin next year,” says Matt Schmidt, President of TGOF Corp. “New consumers are starting to enter the market, and Plus has already demonstrated they have the right product portfolio to cater to these new entrants. I’m thrilled to join the board as Plus continues to grow rapidly.”
Plus is the manufacturer of a cannabis-infused product that launched in 2016 with its first product, Plus Gum and has since expanded its portfolio to include Plus Gummies. The company’s a focus is on providing healthy, tested and consistent cannabis experiences. Since its founding in 2015, Plus has advocated the application of cannabinoids for medical treatment to increase the quality of life for medical patients within California.
“Since launching Plus Gummies this spring, we have been overwhelmed with requests to continue to broaden our product line,” says Jake Heimark, CEO and co-founder “We’re excited to explore new opportunities with the same emphasis on innovation, consistency and testing that we have applied to Plus Gum and Plus Gummies.”
The company initially tested its products in Denver but then moved the company to California where the products are sold throughout the state. There is one review on Leafly that says, “Unlike the tropical, this gum has a good flavor and is fast acting. I’ve enjoyed many 4 hour buzzes and this is the gum to have.”
“Our patent-pending production process reduces the taste and smell of cannabis in our products,” says Justin Gwin, Chief Research Officer. “Our team is thrilled at the opportunity to continue to develop techniques and products that improve how consumers experience cannabis.”
