Get ready for a smokin’ good time.
The Marijuana Show, the first-ever reality show about investing in the Cannabis industry is coming to the Cannabis World Conference & Business Expo in Los Angeles (Sept. 13 – 15) in search of the next Marijuana Millionaire.
This hit show landed on Amazon Prime and was coined, “Shark Tank for Pot” by CNBC, and with over 18 million offered by accredited investors over two seasons, Wall Street Journal exclaimed, “They Smoked Shark Tank.” For season three, producers are projecting to offer $20 million in capital, plus they are launching an equity fund called, “High Finance Fund” to provide additional investment options.
Two lucky finalists on the show include California based companies, Spare and CannTrade: D’ontra Hughes, Founder and CEO states:
SPARE: A virtual financial services platform that drives foot traffic, sales and revenue to local retailers whilst solving many of the problems with banking. A platform for disadvantaged communities such as the unbanked and cannabis dispensaries to get financial services as cheaply and efficiently as possible.
Mark Restilla, Co-Founder of CannTrade states:
CannTrade is a secure wholesale cannabis marketplace & CRM designed to promote trade and help businesses grow. The marketplace allows verified buyers and sellers to transact directly, while data analysis, lead generation, and client management tools help businesses increase their bottom line.
Wendy Robbins and Karen Paull created The Marijuana Show in the summer of 2014. The show’s concept was created initially as a means to help entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry create a blueprint to success and investment. The popular series skyrocketed into a widely critically acclaimed television show with over 250 million press reach, over 18 million in funding offered to contestants, two full seasons, and distribution on Amazon Prime with projections to reach 10 million viewers in 2018.
