California is the country’s largest legal cannabis market and offers tremendous potential for MCOA with this acquisition that includes cannabis nursery, manufacturing/distribution and cultivation licenses. “The acquisition of VBF Brands Inc. perfectly encapsulates MCOA’s strategy to expand our business by organic growth and acquisitions of synergistic and often undercapitalized assets existing today in the cannabis industry,” said Jesus Quintero, CEO of Marijuana Company of America. “We are confident that providing this entity with capital and operational depth to the already impressive operations will increase the capacity and greatly bolster our position in the California cannabis market.”
