Through GCI Corp.’s direct relationship with Californian farmers, we have access to voluminous supply of premium, craft cannabis — today, not tomorrow or within the next six months. We’re already working with legacy producers who have established distribution footprints as well as processing best-practices. Focused in Humboldt, Mendocino, Trinity and Nevada counties – brands like Emerald Grown and Puff Cannabis benefit from the cool air of the mountains, constant sunlight of California and the nutrient-rich soil that has been cultivated for decades. We believe California is THE key global market for cannabis and are thrilled to have a management team and advisory board who have deep experience in all aspects of the industry — from cultivation to regulation.

Through GCI Corp.’s ownership of Homeblown Glassworks Corp., we acquired the enduring, globally recognized brand of PUFF, as well as global distribution company Westone Distribution. Through this acquisition, we have access to every vertical of cannabis accessories from bongs, pipes, grinders, rolling papers to the coveted and culturally-rich community of artistic or ‘headie’ glass. Our three shops in Vancouver, coupled with our global distribution network provide us with a completely vertically integrated business — with a proven track record of over 20 years. We also have strong relationships overseas and experience and expertise in supply-chain as seen in our proprietary glass line, Hydros. This gives us a considerable jumpstart on emerging markets where we can quickly establish a retail presence for accessories and glass.
