Boston, MA, 04/01/2014 (medicalmarijuanareporter.com) – Advanced Cannabis Solutions Inc (OTCMKTS:CANN) is in the business of providing services to the regulated cannabis industry in the United States. It leases space for growing and facilities such as real estate and equipment for licensed marijuana producers to support the production. The usage of marijuana in the United States is fast being legalized and the market is expected to grow by over 60% in 2014 to touch $2.4 billion. Legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington and the relaxation of laws relating to medical marijuana in other states has resulted in booming demand for marijuana growing facilities and infrastructure. Advanced Cannabis has been formed to meet a part of this demand and will initially acquire property in Colorado.
Cannabis Solutions Inc (OTCMKTS:CANN) has benefited from the boom in marijuana stocks as can be seen from the 52-week low of $1.50 and the 52-week high of $64.64. It currently quotes at $29.99 and all of this without much tangible evidence of business and revenues. However, the company hopes that its plans for Colorado where sales of marijuana and expected to be in the range of $400 million-$600 million in the current fiscal should yield results. For instance specialist commercial real estate in the state are currently leasing at $15 per square foot as against the average price of under $5 in the Denver region.
This is a high-risk investment because Cannabis Solutions Inc (OTCMKTS:CANN) has no economic moat and therefore no protection against competitors replicating its business model. Moreover, the legal standing of marijuana under federal law is unclear and state laws are a mixture of various degrees of legality. Moreover, for the first quarter of operations ended 30 September 2013, the company has shown negligible revenues and expenses consisting mainly of professional fees. In the absence of any meaningful financial data, this is a high-risk investment and you should consider carefully before risking your money.
