Plus Receives $2M Series A for Cannabis-Infused Products

The Green Opportunity Funds Leads Round

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plus, the cannabis infused products manufacturer, is pleased to announce the closing of its Series A financing (the “Financing”). The Financing was comprised of $2 Million USD of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Shares”), and was led by The Green Opportunity Funds (TGOF). Following the financing, Matt Schmidt of TGOF will join the Plus Board of Directors.

The net proceeds raised through the Financing will be used for general corporate purposes and for the development of an automated production line.

Plus launched its first product — Plus Gum — in 2016 and has since expanded its portfolio of cannabis products to include Plus Gummies. “Since launching Plus Gummies this spring, we have been overwhelmed with requests to continue to broaden our product line,” says Jake Heimark, CEO and cofounder. “We’re excited to explore new opportunities with the same emphasis on innovation, consistency and testing that we have applied to Plus Gum and Plus Gummies.”

“Our patent-pending production process reduces the taste and smell of cannabis in our products,” says Justin Gwin, Chief Research Officer. “Our team is thrilled at the opportunity to continue to develop techniques and products that improve how consumers experience cannabis.”

“We are at an inflection point in the cannabis industry in California as recreational sales are set to begin next year,” says Matt Schmidt, President of TGOF Corp. “New consumers are starting to enter the market, and Plus has already demonstrated they have the right product portfolio to cater to these new entrants. I’m thrilled to join the board as Plus continues to grow rapidly.”
