We are here to blow Cannabis wide open. We dedicate half our portfolio to companies led by women and people of color.

Due Diligence and Education are the cornerstones of our technique.

Our portfolio represents a carefully-vetted list of companies engaged in all areas of the industry, solidly managed and poised for growth.

We spend all day every day pondering Cannabis. For our investors, we pass this knowledge along by actively educating on this ever-evolving industry and where each investment fit into the larger scope.
