It is really remarkable the number of business avenues the cannabis industry unlocks. Of course, people know about growers, processors and retailers. However, these marijuana businesses need lawyers, accountants, security and maybe even consultants of various types. Additionally, enterprising entrepreneurs often see a niche to fill within the industry as we have seen with trimming machines and kief extractors. One company that has stepped up to fill a need within the industry is Grow Condos, who offer growing space within warehouses, supplying cannabis cultivators with the location, supplies, equipment and know-how needed to grow marijuana. Grow Condos and other up-and-coming and established businesses will be networking at this weekend’s Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference (OMMBC) this weekend.
Grow Condos purchased a 15,000 square foot warehouse in Southern Oregon, that the company manages for marijuana growers. The company found that they had a successful model that had a demand in areas with state-licensed cannabis production system. The company, which did a reverse merger with a company called Calibrus in July of last year, is publicly traded on the OTCQB market under the moniker GRWC. Unlike many publicly traded companies within the cannabis industry, they do have assets and income already.
I had the opportunity to have an email exchange with their CEO Wayne Zallen, who told me that they are looking to expand into Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and across the nation where there are state-licensed marijuana growers. When I asked what he wanted those in the cannabis community to know about his business, he responded, “We are excited about our new project in the Pioneer Business Park in Eugene, Oregon, of approximately 42,000 square feet of warehouse condominiums. We can offer our customers a turn key operation or just supply them with the equipment that they need to build their own custom operation.”
While I don’t see “Big Marijuana,” like Marlboro or Budweiser, I do see the cannabis industry following in the footsteps of microbreweries and local wineries, microgroweries if you will. If you are in the cannabis industry, or thinking of joining, keep the perspective that you have to put in hard work to survive while we knock down prohibitionary barriers across the country and you can succeed. Of course, networking with successful companies and entrepreneurs at events like the Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference doesn’t hurt.
