Statistics by the New Frontier Data valued the US cannabis market at $8.3 billion in 2017. However, as the nation gears to decriminalizing cannabis use, the marketed is estimated to triple at a compounded annual rate of 14.7% to about $25 billion in 2025.

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Say goodbye to drab, institutional interiors and trippy accoutrements—top-tier designers are making the face of marijuana more beautiful, smart, and inviting

Since California voters passed a proposition to allow the use of medical marijuana in 1996, 30 more states and Washington, D.C., have followed suit. Of those, nine have also legalized it for recreational use. In October of this year, Canada became the second country to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide. (Uruguay did so in 2013.) And with it’s emergence from the shadows of the law, marijuana is getting a total makeover.

Canada cannabis legalisation: ‘We know the world is watching’

Canada cannabis legalisation: ‘We know the world is watching’

14 October 2018

Ron Throgmartin admits he is “not a marijuana smoker”, but as a businessman he sees an opportunity in commercial cannabis real estate.

He ran his own property firm for 20 years and is now chief executive of Diego Pellicer. The firm develops and leases property for marijuana businesses and has just opened its second US retail outlet with the help of designer Jill Savini, former creative director of the original Apple store.

Ron says he plans to expand into Canada, but he’s “cautious” and sees more earning potential in the larger, neighbouring US market.

“At one point the US will federally legalise cannabis and when that happens, Canada will become an afterthought.”

He also believes legalisation will eventually concentrate industry control into the hands of larger, probably tobacco corporations.

“Their model’s dying so if they don’t find something to transition to they’ll be in trouble.”

So unlike other firms, Ron says he’s in no rush to have weed legalised in the US at a national level.

“[I would like] more time for Diego Pellicer to become a bigger company so we can be a candidate for acquisition from bigger corporations who we can’t compete with.

“I’m always thinking about tomorrow and next year.”

Peek inside a Seattle cannabis tour

Peek inside a Seattle cannabis tour

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

There are monastic brewery adventures in Germany and Belgium, and winery tours from Napa Valley to Bordeaux. Welsh cheese treks and Vietnamese street food jaunts beckon the more adventurous. And now, there are cannabis tours, too.

In at least nine states and the District of Colombia, consenting adults over 21 can purchase marijuana for recreational use. (Finding a place to use it is another hurdle, but more on that later.) So the idea of a different sort of vacation was appealing.

Like many adventures these days, mine began with an internet search: “Seattle marijuana tours.”

Seattle’s entertaining Kush Tours popped up — a 3½-hour adventure for $150 plus an Amtrak train ride to get me there. They also offer advice on 420-friendly places to stay, such as the Bacon Mansion, a B&B on Capitol Hill, as well as hotels with smoke-friendly courtyards, if not smoke-friendly rooms. The Bacon Mansion is a convenient 15-minute walk from the new train line that runs from the airport to the University of Washington, with stops in the SoDo — south of downtown — neighborhood.

The tour rendezvous spot was Diego Pellicer, a high-end SoDo marijuana store that looks like a fancy jewelry design boutique, all glitzy glass and tiny sparkles on display. It was super fancy, with gold-wrapped “canagar” Cohiba-sized joints for easily more than a grand, if you really want to get decadent, but offerings for bargain shoppers, as well.

Reverse stock split ensures listing compliance as company implements new business strategies

Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc.

October 4

SEATTLE, Oct. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. (OTCQB: DPWW) the premium marijuana brand and management company, today announced a 20-to-1 reverse stock split. The reverse split will ensure that the company is compliant with the rules and regulations of the OTC Markets: see, Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 17, 2018. With the pending implementation of the reverse stock split, the company can fully execute its new, easily scalable business model, positioning DPWW for quick expansion into 29 additional states that have legalized some form of marijuana use. The reverse stock split is subject to approval of the Financial Industry Regulatory Agency (“FINRA”).

“No doubt. The cannabis market has changed significantly since the inception of Diego Pellicer,” said Ron Throgmartin, chief executive officer, Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. “We’ve seen shifting trends in cultivation operations, retail stores and products. We know this sector and we continue to evolve our business model to dominate in a more competitive market. Diego Pellicer’s licensed stores continue to experience sales growth in the country’s most aggressive retail markets by leveraging management’s extensive industry expertise and the premium Diego brand.”

Next Level Business Model: Premium, Trusted Brand
The Diego Pellicer model has evolved from a lease-based, landlord business into a national premium branding, licensing and royalties model. A significant advantage of this model is the ability to rapidly expand to new markets, establishing upscale company stores and offering the finest-quality products. The new model also includes developing exclusive, branded cannabis products that will be available at company stores and beyond its branded retail locations.

Diego Pellicer Management Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. that launched in August, provides turnkey operations including management expertise, personnel, technology, branding and marketing for any existing or future cannabis store in the United States. This ensures a consistent, luxury brand that customers can trust no matter their location.

Already, Diego Pellicer Management Company has proven successful. The Company negotiated additional rental income with its existing stores, increasing cash flow. This cash flow position reduces the need to borrow capital for operations making it possible for Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. to focus on expanding the brand.

The brunch, the ear buds, the bi-coastal workwear…consume the city like a native New Yorker and get ready for cannabis luxe.

When the time comes, New Yorkers can expect some pretty exciting shopping: this summer, Diego Pellicer sold a gold leaf “cannagar”, or cannabis cigar, for a stratospheric $10,000.
