Company Looking to Aggressively Enter the $1.5 Billion Colorado Cannabis and CBD Products Market

DENVER, CO, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – The Pocket Shot Company (OTC: PCKK), a ten-year-old publicly traded specialty alcohol beverage distribution company, based in Denver, Colorado, today announced that its Pure Harvest Cannabis Producers, Inc. subsidiary, based in Santa Monica, California, has executed two Letters of Intent (LOIs) to enter the Colorado cannabis market, which is estimated at more than $1.5 billion dollars annually.     

Pure Harvest has agreed to acquire the assets of both Sundance Gardens of Denver and SKM Wellness Products of Dumont and to retain the management team, for combined cash consideration of approximately $700,000, assumption of certain liabilities, and 2,250,000 shares of common stock.  The owner operators of these businesses hold a combined 7 licenses, and bring a portfolio of strains and value-add cannabis products that are well-suited for manufacturing in California and other adult-use and medically approved states.

Upon the closing of these transactions, Pure Harvest will secure initial revenue generating operations in Colorado with 15,000 square feet of licensed operating cultivation, an infused products laboratory, and a cannabis dispensary licensed for both medical and adult-use as well as the talent to operate and scale the Colorado business to meet the market opportunity. 

“We are extremely excited to be able to enter the robust $1.5 billion a year Colorado cannabis and hemp market by partnering with two highly experienced cannabis operators,” stated David Lamadrid, CEO of the Pure Harvest Cannabis Group and the Pocket Shot Company. “We plan to become a multi-state operator (MSO) and vertically integrated producer and purveyor of the highest quality cannabis and hemp products available on the market.  With the founders of both Colorado companies joining our management team, we expect to be able to accelerate the development of Pure Harvest branded line of products.”

The management of both Sundance Gardens and SKM are expected to operate and manage Colorado operations under employment contracts as key members of the Pure Harvest executive team.

Although legislation is pending in Colorado to allow full ownership of cannabis licensees by publicly held companies, until Colorado law is changed, Pure Harvest will proceed with the acquisitions as a purchase of operating assets in the manner that is currently allowed by the regulatory authorities in Colorado. The Letters of Intent (LOIs) are non-binding, subject to due diligence, require the approval by the Marijuana Enforcement Division of the Colorado Department of Revenue, and the preparation and execution of definitive agreements.
