From Production to Packaging to Branding to Distribution – Chemistree Is Quietly Building A Cannabis Empire
The run-up to cannabis legalization in Canada drew investment interest from around the world. Over the past three years, the investment world has been mesmerized as Canadian cannabis stocks experience gains of up to 375% .
Now that Canada has officially legalized cannabis, and the market has matured, investors are looking south for a new profit opportunity. That market is the United States, and it makes the Canadian Cannabis Market look very very small.
Just how massive is the US cannabis market? Forbes Magazine reports that the Canadian medical and recreational markets combined will pull in a total of $5.4 billion by 2022. Meanwhile, the U.S. adult-use market ALONE will generate $15.7 billion by 2022. 
In Other Words, the Canadian Cannabis Boom Was Nothing Compared to What Might Await
Investors in the U.S.
In The United States,thirty states (and Washington, D.C.) allow the use of medical cannabis and nine states (plus D.C.) have legalized recreational use. Those numbers are likely to grow in the future.
That’s why major companies, such as Constellation Brands and Coca-Cola, are seeking to dip their toes into the market, according to Forbes… And it’s why more and more investors are eyeing early-movers like Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF).
Why is Chemistree drawing attention?
Chemistree has been quietly purchasing valuable assets in California and Washington at cut-rate prices.These assets not only position Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) as a cannabis market leader with a head-start in production, packaging, branding, and distribution, but also make it a prime acquisition target as larger,well-funded companies inevitably enter this rapidly expanding market.
1) Chemistree Acquired an Award-Winning Cannabis Brand That is Widely Known as One of the Country’s Highest Quality Strains!
Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) acquired Sugarleaf, a Washington-based premium cannabis brand. Two of the brand’s strains – White 99 and Presidential Kush – have won the prestigious Cannabis Cup competition in the ‘Best US Hybrid’, ‘Medical Hybrid’, and ‘People’s Choice Cup’ categories.
Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) is moving at breakneck speed to expand the reach of Sugarleaf’s award-winning products. They can now be found in over 50 retail stores, and the company plans to double this by the end of 2018 and quadruple it in 2019.
Chemistree has alreadybuilt a distribution network before most companies have even built products. Sugarleaf products are already in 50 plus retail stores across Washington. The company has strong retail partnerships with popular Washington dispensariessuch as 20/20 Solutions and The Joint, among others. Once these distributions networks are established it will be extremely difficult for new cannabis companies to win shelf space.
2) The Company Acquired Prime Real Estate in America’s Hottest Cannabis Market – California.
After conquering Washington, Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) closed a deal for 9.55 acres of prime real estate in Desert Hot Springs, California. This land is in an area designated specifically for cannabis cultivation.
When fully built out, the land will be able to support over 200,000 square feet of cultivation and processing buildings. These facilities will also be able to handle edibles, vapes, oils, concentrates, and tinctures.
This property purchase anchors Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) in one of the United States’ fastest growing cannabis markets. The California cannabis market is expected to hit over $5 billion in 2019 and is potentially larger than the entire Canadian market.
Chemistree’s management team has a collective track record of raising over $150 million in financing, being part of $130 million buyouts, and building companies with revenues over $50 million.
They’ve used this experience to successfully raise $4.5 million in private financing in July – which was more than double their initial goal of $2.1 million. That funding then allowed the company to purchase the Sugarleaf brand and the company’s massive California property.
That’s an indication that the company can raise funds AND make intelligent buying decisions that grow the company’s value.
So is the American Cannabis Market Set to Emulate the Canadian Market … But on a Bigger Scale?
Over the past three years, Canadian cannabis investors have seen their fair share of success stories. Some of the highlights include:
MedMen enterprises Inc. (CSE:MMEN) (OTC:MMNFF)
Market Cap: $2.6 billion
A top retailer in the US cannabis market, MedMen is one of the largest full-scale cannabis holding companies in the indutry. Memen secured a first-mover advantage by defining the next generation of marijuana businesses and creating a new investment category: cannabis as a consumer product. 
Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (TSX-V:N) (OTC:NXTTF)
Market Cap: $408.1 million
A leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the US. Curaleaf is a major player in the US cannabis consumer markets. The company owns and operates 28 dispensaries, 12 cultivation sites and 9 processing sites with a focus on highly populated, limited license states, including Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York. 
Namaste Technologies (TSX-V:N) (OTC:NXTTF)
Market Cap: $408.1 million
A testament to the power that e-commerce can bring to the cannabis industry, Namaste Technologies began as a company selling cannabis-related products and services before acquiring its sales license back in July.
The next major industry in America is forming right now in front of our eyes and forward-thinking companies such as Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF) are ahead of the curve and uniquely positioned to dominate this new potentially multi-billion dollar opportunity.
The US market is also ripe for consolidation. Just look how unconcentrated Colorado’s retail cannabis market is relative to other industries. Using the HH Index, you can see that Colorado Retail Marijuana’s 101 rating places it at the bottom end of an unconcentrated market. It’s not just unconcentrated, it’s super unconcentrated.
Why is this important? Because highly segmented markets create huge opportunities for larger firms to swoop in and buy up smaller companies that have valuable assets like Chemistree (CSE:CHM) (OTCQB:CHMJF).
The moment of truth has arrived for American cannabis investors. American cannabis companies are making moves, building brands, seizing market share, establishing distribution networks, and buying assets. The battle for American cannabis dominance has begun, and it seems to have started before everybody was ready.
