Cannafornia strikes deal for Florida Super License, has opportunity to become one of 22 Florida Licensees

A Florida super license provides for unlimited nursery, cultivation, manufacturing, delivery, and 35 retail stores

January 14, 2020 —

CEO of Cannafornia, Paul King, told us earlier today, “Cannafornia has made a name for itself in the most competitive market in the world, California, where there are over 6,000 active licensees, and a long history of illicit growing and selling. Despite all the challenges, Cannafornia has emerged as one of the state’s top producers of greenhouse cannabis, with a brand who’s vibrance has attracted one of the largest followings of any cannabis brand in the world, from the streets to social media and everywhere in between.”

King continued, “Cannafornia has been able to achieve profitability in a tough market where up until January 7th, the Metrc system hasn’t been enforced, allowing for black market operations to continue to thrive while white market suppliers get burdened with taxes.

Despite all the challenges, Cannafornia has stuck to a lean management model where salaries are kept low, stock options are given to all employees, and the team is solely focused on the long term growth and profitability of the company.”

Cannafornia has stayed head-down and focused the past several years to establish itself in the California market. With its track record of success, Cannafornia was able to secure a deal for a Florida super license, allowing the brand to expand to the most important state in the country. With its sunny climate and super license structure, there exists a wonderful opportunity for an operator that is able to execute quickly and efficiently.

King summarized, “The timing of the opportunity is once in a lifetime in Florida, this unique set of circumstances won’t happen again. Over time it will develop and look more like California where the competition is fierce. We’re not scared of that challenge either; we did it before and we’ll do it again. But the time is now; with the knowledge we have, cross that with being a first mover in the Florida market, it’s hard to overstate how special the opportunity is. I’ll never have another one like it in my lifetime, and I’m fine with that, because I’m going to make this one count.”

King explained his funding to date. “We never raised more money than we needed, always keeping share holder dilution in mind. We’ve done a good job of that. Now we’re going out to raise for Florida, and if we’re able
to secure the funds needed, we will be going full speed ahead in Florida.”

King concluded, “I’m happy about the shake up of the market recently. It simply tells the truth and clears the noise. There were too many over hyped Canadian companies. You don’t grow plants in greenhouses in the cold. It’s inefficient. It’s that simple. Thanks to the shake up, which we’ve been eagerly anticipating, those companies can’t afford to make moves in places like Florida, and that leaves few players that have the operational expertise and the fundraising ability to execute. I feel like we’re in a very very good spot to capitalize and that’s exactly what we plan to do in 2020.”

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jul 9, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jul 9, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 9, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
