"Tim and Ralph are early industry pioneers that built an avid following for their proprietary naturally grown strains when recreational cannabis was legalized in Colorado," said Andy Williams, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Medicine Man Technologies. "Given their many years of underlying cultivation experience, Tim and Ralph have perfected their formula for growing cannabis naturally with a focus on utmost quality using environmentally sensitive grow practices that many consumers enjoy. Their combined cannabis knowledge even led them to begin producing CO2-extracted cannabis oil that they later turned into a company called O.penVAPE, now the leading cannabis personal vaporizer in the country. Adding their deep retail, cultivation, and product development experience to the Company will prove very beneficial as we continue with our plans to vertically integrate our business and look for future cross-selling opportunities from our expanding operations."
"Colorado HB 19-1090 has ushered in the next phase of development for the Colorado cannabis industry by permitting outside investors to invest in the Colorado cannabis space," said Tim Cullen, Chief Executive Officer of Colorado Harvest Company. "Following the passage of this law, the time was never more right for us to join the outstanding team at Medicine Man Technologies, who is now free to invest in the industry, given the synergies involved. Their growing team of Colorado cannabis pioneers is very impressive, and we are happy to be aligned with their joint efforts, all soon to be under one roof. Furthermore, the management team at Medicine Man Technologies is incredibly accomplished, and they are executing successfully on their plan to bring financial discipline and a clear strategy in their efforts to build the region's premier cannabis company. We are delighted to join them in this next leg of growth."
