The General Cannabis story is layered and dimensional, but also remarkably straightforward. We do things by the book. We are transparent, honest and fair. We are publicly traded in the U.S., and our SEC filings are as thorough as a $4B company. We do all of this, and more, in an effort to raise the standard of integrity and legitimacy in our industry, and our investors have validated that effort by trusting us with their capital.
General Cannabis Corporation is the comprehensive resource for the highest quality service providers available to the regulated Cannabis Industry. We are a trusted partner to the cultivation, production and retail side of the cannabis business. We do this through a combination of strong operating divisions such as consulting, security, financing and the distribution of important infrastructure products to grow facilities and dispensaries. As a synergistic holding company, our subsidiaries are able to leverage the strengths of each other, as well as a larger balance sheet, to succeed.
