Item 9 Labs Corp. CEO Sara Gullickson Recognized as Influential Cannabis Leader Named Among Women to Watch in 2019
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sara Gullickson, CEO of Item 9 Labs Corp. (OTC: INLB), recently was selected by Marijuana Business Magazine for its Women to Watch in 2019 list. Covering the international cannabis market, the 22 featured women were recognized as preeminent leaders who merit attention in the New Year.
Gullickson was highlighted as an intrepid entrepreneur who established her own cannabis consulting firm Dispensary Permits at age 26. She now serves as CEO of publicly traded company Item 9 Labs, a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative cannabis products.
In her Women to Watch interview, Gullickson provided advice for those interested in entering the market, “Slow and steady wins the race. I see so many people trying to get rich quick. If you work hard, remain dedicated to your core values and make savvy business decisions, profits will follow.”
Item 9 Labs operates an indoor cultivation facility zoned on 50 acres in Arizona. Under Gullickson’s leadership, Item 9 Labs will serve as a parent company for multiple brands, including Dispensary Permits and Dispensary Templates, as well as the management of Strive Wellness of Nevada, a cultivation, processing, and distribution facility in Nevada.
This week, Item 9 Labs was featured in an Arizona Republic article showcasing the top companies in the state’s booming medical marijuana program. Item 9 Labs is currently in the final stages of completing a 10,000 square-foot expansion that will double the size of its Arizona facility.
“We are one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Our patient base is very healthy … and the licenses from the business model standpoint are very high-valued. Arizona is attractive to out-of-state groups because you get full vertical integration,” Gullickson stated in her interview with the Republic.
As CEO of the rapidly growing venture, Gullickson’s goal for 2019 is to acquire additional marijuana licenses in up to ten markets, including: Arizona, California, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington state.
