LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Jun 4, 2015) – mCig, Inc. ( OTCQB : MCIG ), a leading provider of technology, products, and services for consumers, dispensaries, and growers within the global medical and recreational marijuana industry, announced on Thursday, June 4, the agreement to become the Master Distributor of the full line of patent pending CannaPod products. This unique partnership was formed as part of the collaborative efforts of the expanding mCig Sales Team and the Construction Division. As part of the CannaPods Master Distributor agreement, the mCig Sales Team will be acquiring 200 pre-qualified and prepared bids valued at roughly $40 million from the CannaPods existing sales pipeline. In addition to acting as the Master Distributor for the CannaPod product, the mCig Construction Division will act as the exclusive “preferred builder” for all customers who would like on-site assistance.
The modular cannabis building industry is exploding, and CannaPods, with their patent pending best-in-class technology, partnered with the mCig Sales Team and Construction Division, are positioned to dominate the marketplace.
“We are constantly striving to find new products and services we can provide to cannabis growers large and small, and we knew there was a clear need for a better solution for all growers who want durable, scalable, efficient, and tightly controlled growing environments. We saw the opportunity to partner with CannaPods and felt that their pending patent and commitment to creating the best modular construction products in the cannabis industry made them the type of partner we wanted to work with at mCig, and immediately took action to make that happen,” Ron Sassano, Head of mCig’s Construction and Engineering division stated.
“We are looking forward to letting our larger, more experienced sales team aggressively work to close the deals in the pipeline and expect to finalize at least 10% of them, which would immediately result in a few million dollars in revenue to kick off the initiative, and these leads are just the tip of the iceberg as we will be bringing CannaPods to national cannabis events for people to see and feel the product in person,” Mr. Sassano added.
CannaPods are poised to make a big impact in the $3.5 billion cannabis industry, allowing start-ups and existing businesses alike to reduce costs, improve their product, and increase their speed to market.
Growing high quality medical-grade marijuana is extremely challenging. The growing environment needs to be tightly controlled in order to successfully cultivate a crop which will satisfy customers. This environment needs to be as close to perfect as possible. If one environmental factor accidentally shifts just a little bit, an entire crop can be lost. Outside contaminants can easily ruin a multi-million-dollar crop overnight. A perfect growing environment is something every marijuana grower is constantly striving for, because the better the environment, the better the product and the higher the yield. CannaPods provide growers the ability to create the perfect environment, immediately, anywhere in the world.
CannaPods are turnkey, customizable, fully modular ISO clean cultivation rooms which use the best building materials on the planet to give growers the ability to create that perfect growing environment for their plants.
CannaPods allow pinpoint control of air temperature, water temperature, humidity levels, CO2, and ventilation.
CannaPods give growers the ability to maximize yields and increase crop quality by creating a reliable and consistent grow room environment 365 days a year in any climate. They can be built and stacked to any desired size, constructed within days, and can be easily set up and moved to any location.
CannaPod grow units are made from advanced space-age building materials and are built to last decades, unlike hoop tents and other common grow unit systems which degrade quickly. CannaPods composite technology provides better thermal efficiency, significantly reduced utility costs, fast and easy assembly, and exceptional strength characteristics. CannaPods are built to last decades.
Financing on all CannaPods products is available to qualified applicants.
