“Our first goal is to provide effective medicine, in licensed compliance, to our home state patients,” says company president, Patrick Moran.
DALLAS/FT. WORTH TX – A new line of cannabis products medically compliant with the Texas Compassionate Use Act is only the beginning says a North Texas-based company that intends to take their products and Texas-centric brand nationwide as the end of marijuana prohibition picks up steam throughout the country.
Texas Cannabis® plans to announce company developments as part of an investment panel discussion led by company CEO Patrick Moran at the Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo Texas, from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, February 27 and 28, at the Ft. Worth Convention Center, 1201 Houston Street. Information and tickets are available at swccexpo.com, or by calling 1-888-729-8199.
“We are working closely with town representatives who have embraced our plans.
Texas Cannabis®, established by AcquiFlow, is led by Moran; the visionary behind the very first legal cannabis company in the state of Texas. Stemming from multi-generational industrial-farm family, he and his associates have sights set on the long-term goal of proudly representing the state throughout the nation with high quality cannabis based products.
“Our first goal is to provide effective, compliant medicine under Texas’s Compassionate Use Program” (or CUP as the regulations are known). As part of the company’s debut, Moran will announce development of a state-of-the art cultivation, processing & dispensing facility; which will produce low THC, high CBD based oil to be packaged as tinctures, capsules and sublinguals for the 150,000 already-diagnosed intractable epileptics that CUP serves. The Texas Department of Public Safety has announced it will issue the first licenses June 2017, three months ahead of it’s September 1st legislated deadline.
According to Moran, products serving Texas’s intractable epileptic patients are the beginning of a longer term plan to build a ‘true Texas’ organization that pays homage to the state’s agricultural-economic roots and takes advantage of emerging opportunities by legal cannabis consumption across the country. According to the ArcView Group, sales within the legal marijuana industry are expected to hit $6.7 billion dollars nationwide in 2016.
Moran’s announcement will include company developments of investor interest including the state-of-the-art renovation of a 100 year old cotton gin on the Shawnee Trail (an historic Native-American trail that became Texas’s earliest cattle drive), adjacent to the legendary Chisholm Trail. Located in Gunter, Texas; modern commercial developers refer to this swath driving North of Dallas as “The Golden Corridor” because of it’s elite real estate, including the Dallas Cowboys’ new training facility/entertainment complex and other Jerry Jones projects.
“We are working closely with town representatives who have embraced our plans. This path is a literal roadmap of multiple Texas industries that serve the national greater good. As the state makes history by helping develop the legal cannabis industry’s economic infrastructure, it is the natural location for a brand that pays homage to our very deep and loyal Texas roots.”
Through AcquiFlow, crossbreeding is underway in a sanctioned state for the development of unique strains, specifically to meet Texas’s current standards and to prepare for legislated expansion into more patient categories. “Our tagline is grown by Texans for Texans,” Moran said.
As the CEO of AcquiFlow, which has three subdivisions including grow lighting sales & distribution, industrial hemp, and a commercial greenhouse operation, Moran is not new to the legal cannabis industry. “Ownership of these companies allowed us to gain invaluable hands-on experience and insight into legal cannabis including cultivation expertise,” he said. Moran is also the co-founder and president of the Texas Cannabis Industry Association (TCIA).
