The Green Market Report hosted its first Psychedelic Investing conference on January 24, in New York City. This panel was moderated by Lewis Goldberg, Managing Partner at Communications firm KCSA. He was joined by Ronan Levy of Field Trip Ventures and Brian Quigley of Green Sky Strategies. They spoke about the similarities between the emerging psychedelic companies and the early days of the cannabis industry. Levy was at the forefront of the legal cannabis industry in Canada when he co-founded Canadian Cannabis Clinics and CanvasRX Inc, which was acquired by Aurora Cannabis in 2016. His new venture will create clinics that will focus on psychedelics-assisted therapies.  Quigley is the Co-founder of Green Sky Strategies. He and his partners Jim McAlpine and Ophelia Chong have created a Cannabis Strategy team that combines deep cannabis industry and consumer experience with proven Fortune 500 strategic thinking. The group is looking at psychedelic investments.

KCSA Strategic Communications is celebrating its 50th year this fall and the company is saying it’s the strongest one yet. KCSA has a roster of companies in the tech space, financial services, and life sciences, but the company has really come on strong in the cannabis space.

“Few firms in our industry can say that their 50th year in business has been their strongest. The entire KCSA team is responsible for our exceptional performance and this significant accomplishment,” said Todd Fromer, President & Managing Partner of KCSA. “The team we have built is second to none, offering diverse backgrounds and skillsets, as well as a high level of enthusiasm and a commitment to excellence. The partners of the firm—Jeffrey Goldberger, Lewis Goldberg and I—believe that KCSA’s rebrand, coupled with our commitment to incentivizing and rewarding talent, positions us for continued growth well into the next 50 years.”

The company offers both public relations and investor relations, representing companies like Acreage Holdings (which boasts former House Speaker John Boehner as a board member) and Aurora Cannabis (one of the largest cannabis companies in Canada). Other top cannabis clients include KushCo, iAnthus, Medicine Man and Golden Leaf.

KCSA said that the last 12 months leading up to the anniversary has been transformational for the firm, as it completed a brand refresh, as well as experiencing exceptional growth with an increase in revenue of 35 percent and more than 25 new executive hires in 2019.

The cannabis team is lead by Lewis Goldberg and Phil Carlson. Goldberg also produces the Green Rush weekly podcast along with KCSA Managing Director Anne Donohoe. The podcast has been running for a year.
“The Green Rush is the must listen to podcast for the business of cannabis. Lewis and Anne are both knowledgeable and ask smart, fun questions,” said Matt Hawkins of Cresco Capital Partners. Listeners should be warned that Goldberg delivers a heavy dose of “Dad jokes” within the show as the hosts talk to some of the leading executives in the industry.

Investors are feeling bullish about the cannabis industry, according to a new survey released by KCSA Strategic Communications. Titled the Cannabis Investor Survey, KCSA polled over 250 retail cannabis investors about their investments and outlook on the legal cannabis industry in the United States.

Of those surveyed, 51% have a net worth between $100,000 and $500,000 while the other half (49%) have a net worth over $500,000.  According to the survey, 90% of retail investors are making money off of their stocks, and 40% say that they own stock in 10 or more cannabis companies. Roughly 50% are pulling money from other investments to invest in cannabis.

“Cannabis has graduated from being viewed as a high-risk, exotic or fringe investment, to a mainstream staple of retail investors’ stock portfolios,” said Todd Fromer, Managing Partner at KCSA Strategic Communications. “Our survey suggests that individual investors are selling their positions in traditional stocks in order to invest in cannabis stocks.”

While some may see cannabis as a way to make quick money, most retail investors say that they are in it for the long run. Approximately 80% of respondents say that they plan to hold on to their investments for between 1-10 years. Nearly half of those surveyed (40%) say that cannabis makes up more than a quarter of their overall investment portfolio.

Though cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance, most investors don’t seem to mind. Roughly 84% of respondents say that cannabis’ federal status has no impact on their decision to invest. Retail investors are also unafraid to invest in cannabis companies that touch the plant.

Approximately 44% say that they are invested in a medical cannabis company and 40% report to have investments in adult-use cannabis. While hemp-CBD may be the hottest thing in the health and wellness market, 37% of respondents have investments in the sector. Despite the legal benefits of investing in ancillary cannabis companies, only 24% have a financial stake in one.

The takeaway from this survey is that investors are exceedingly confident in the long-term success and stability of the cannabis industry. Instead of cautiously putting money into ancillary companies, most retail investors seem to be diving head first both adult-use and medical cannabis while shying away from “safer” investments. According to Lewis Goldberg, a managing partner at KCSA, that trend will only continue.

“Cannabis investors appear unafraid,” says Goldberg. “As they continue to invest without fear of federal illegality of cannabis and without concern regarding companies that touch the plant, we expect this sentiment will only grow as more and more states expand medical programs and pass recreational use laws.”

Scaling our cannabis cultivation to support our wholesale business as well as to supply our four dispensaries in Nevada will enable us to meet demand from the growing cannabis market.

Innovative Packaging for Modern Medicine

Santa Ana, CA, June 6, 2018 / AxisWire/ Kush Bottles, Inc. (OTCQB: KSHB) (“Kush Bottles” or the “Company”), a leading provider of packaging, suppliesvaporizers, hydrocarbon gases, solvents, accessories and branding solutions for the regulated cannabis industry, today announced that it has launched a new division, Koleto Packaging Solutions, that will bring new, FDA-compliant packaging solutions to the pharmaceutical and veterinary industries.

The global pharmaceutical packaging market is expected to reach USD 158.8 billion by 2025. Kush Bottles plans to utilize its expertise from its industry-leading cannabis-focused packaging business to supply packaging solutions to these two new markets. The new division will be run by Edd Pratt, Executive Vice President, and is expected serve pharmaceutical companies and veterinary clinics across the United States.

Kush Bottles’ CEO Nick Kovacevich commented, “As a leading provider of packaging solutions to the cannabis industry, we have an unrivaled track record of creating products that are elegant, while remaining compliant with all of the various state and local regulations. This expertise makes us uniquely suited for scaling our institutional knowledge into other heavily-regulated industries. Virtually all of our products are related to other industries and we see important applications for our child-resistant containers that adhere to stringent FDA regulations, which we believe makes these products relevant to pharmaceutical and veterinary clients. Additionally, our expertise in incorporating customizable branding into our packaging solutions will help clients in these industries achieve a one-of-a-kind look and feel for their products. We believe that entering these new market verticals will allow us to leverage our existing knowledge and infrastructure to significantly expand this underserved market from a packaging innovation perspective.”

With tens of billions of dollars poured into pharmaceutical research, and new products coming to market every day, it can be challenging for companies to keep up with effective and appropriate packaging. Kush Bottles believes that to date, there has been little creative and innovative packaging solutions available for those products. Far from a one-size-fits all mentality, Koleto Packaging Solutions will be able to provide child-resistant packaging and state-of-the-art solutions for nearly any product or device.

“In speaking with many of the key stakeholders, such as the manufacturers and distributors, we see an opportunity to address how packaging in pharmaceutical and veterinary industries are handled, stored and used and aim to create a solution that fits the end-users’ specific needs,” continued Mr. Kovacevich.  “Our priority is finding packaging solutions that ensure the quality and safety of all pharmaceuticals while addressing the problem of stale innovation.”

Mr. Krane was first elected to his first two-year term on the NCIA’s board in 2014. The board consists of 18 elected directors, plus the executive director, and has oversight over the association’s strategic direction and budget.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to serve on the NCIA board for a third term. The next few years will be some of the most critical the cannabis industry has faced, as we are likely looking at our best opportunity ever to make changes at the federal level on critical issues like banking and 280e reform, and possibly even to end federal marijuana prohibition,” Mr. Krane said. “Those of us who have worked on this issue for decades recognize how crucial the upcoming years will be for this industry and it is imperative that organizations like NCIA be well be a leading, well-funded body that is focused on the task at hand.”

Mr. Krane has been a leader in the cannabis industry for more than 20 years, first on the advocacy side, serving as associate director of NORML from 2000-2005 and executive director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) from 2006-2009. In 2011, he co-founded 4Front, which quickly earned a reputation as one of the industry’s most successful consulting companies. He also serves on boards of the New Jersey Cannabis Industry Association, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Association, and is a Trustee of SSDP. He also writes a regular column for Forbes, and co-hosts the popular Marijuana Today podcast.

Santa Ana, CA, May 31, 2018 /AxisWire/  Kush Bottles, Inc. (OTCQB: KSHB) (“Kush Bottles” or the “Company”), a leading provider of packaging, suppliesvaporizers, hydrocarbon gases, solvents, accessories and branding solutions for the regulated cannabis industry, today announced it has signed a lease for a new warehouse facility in Las Vegas to meet demand from the consumer market as well as support the current and new businesses entering the industry or expanding operations.

With the 13,000 square foot facility, expected to be operational mid-June, Kush Bottles expects to minimize the time taken to receive and distribute packaging and supplies, streamline its logistics and access more storage space for high-demand products with rapid turnover times, such as exit bags, cartridges, and pre-roll tubes. By opening its first local distribution facility in Las Vegas, the Company aims to become a stronger partner to some of the most advanced cannabis cultivation and retail facilities in the industry, which are located in Nevada. This warehouse will complement the existing Kush Bottles hazmat facility used today to service the Las Vegas and greater Nevada market with a variety of hydrocarbons, in which businesses use to turn cannabis plants into oils.

“The new Las Vegas facility will further solidify Kush Bottles’ commitment to the city’s thriving, local cannabis community and strengthen our own mission to be the go-to partner for cannabis companies as they scale their operations,” said Kush Bottles CEO Nick Kovacevich. “The fluctuating demand from the tourism and organic growth in the cannabis market means that a lot of our partners are having a difficult time forecasting their packaging and supply needs. By having a local facility, we give our clients the added flexibility of faster delivery as well as offering on-site pick up if that’s what their business dictates.”

As one of the busiest tourist destinations in the country, people from all over the world are being exposed to cannabis, sometimes for the very first time, through Las Vegas dispensaries. With consumer demand at an all-time high in Las Vegas, retailers in the state have already sold nearly $200 million in cannabis in the first six months after the legalization of its adult-use cannabis sales, fueled by both tourists and locals. ¹

Public relations company  KCSA Strategic Communications has taken the lead among New York media companies to get involved with cannabis industry companies. As a result of this commitment, KCSA has launched a new podcast called “The Green Rush.” The podcast has been launched in conjunction with a dedicated public relations branch with investor relations and a social media cannabis practice. The new website created for this new arm will serve the specific needs of leaders in the cannabis industry across the entire supply chain.

KCSA is using “The Green Rush,” hosted by Managing Partner Lewis Goldberg and Managing Director Anne Donohoe, as a platform for conversations with industry leaders, the media, cannapreneurs and public advocates about the big issues facing this dynamic industry. The company has been working with clients in the cannabis space for more than five years and has deep institutional knowledge as well as access to decision-makers, investors, entrepreneurs, and analysts who are writing the rules for this new marketplace.

 

“The Green Rush is real. With nearly 300 publicly listed cannabis companies, tens of thousands of retail investors, and a seemingly insatiable appetite in the mainstream and trade press for stories about cannabis companies, the opportunity to help shape this industry was too interesting to ignore,” said Mr. Goldberg. “While the cannabis industry is still very young, and sits in a regulatory gray area, we believe that we are only at the very beginning of defining this growing industry.”

KCSA has always been a forward-looking public and investor relations agency, and it is with that in mind that they decided to launch this practice, headed up by Mr. Goldberg on the public relations team and Managing Director Phil Carlson from the investor relations team.

“Companies need the ability to tell their stories effectively to investors, market participants, regulators, legislators and even consumers. KCSA has a proven track record of working with entrepreneurial companies, C-suite executives and boards to define and deliver a clear message, call to action and then measure the impact that we have on a company’s bottom line,” continued Mr. Goldberg.

Mr. Carlson added, “The appetite among institutions for information about publicly traded cannabis companies has never been greater. While there is a massive reticence to invest institutional dollars in this sector, the flow of capital from high-net-worth individuals, family offices and general partners at hedge funds and private equity firms into cannabis companies is accelerating. Facilitating access to these types of individuals and capital is the type of value that our cannabis practice brings to our clients every day.”

“The Green Rush” podcast is a weekly, 30-minute show and can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and other popular podcatchers. Mr. Goldberg and Ms. Donohoe will be speaking with lawmakers, investment bankers, CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors, among others who are transforming cannabis away from the shadows of the black market into a thriving, legitimate industry.

Initial guests on “The Green Rush” include Alan Lien, Founder and President of Solis-Tek, Alan Brochstein, founder/creator of 420 Investor and New Cannabis Ventures and Debra Borchardt, Co-Founder, CEO, and Editor-In-Chief of Green Market Report.
