NNW’s Stuart Smith introduces Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD, to an interview that highlights the company’s innovative business model and strategic expansion plans within the legal cannabis industry. Athaide first provides an overview of TGOD, which provides a different business model than any other company in the cannabis space. It is a vertically integrated certified organic cannabis brand with both a domestic Canadian and international footprint. The company is one of two in its market focused on organic cannabis (with significantly higher production potential than its competitor) and premium quality products that are grown in real living soil (unlike others grown in rock wall) and free from synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticides. The company is engaged in production through purpose built high-technology greenhouses, Athaide says, explaining that the company is “really taking the best technology out there and cultural areas and, for the first time, putting them together to grow cannabis in a very high-tech, clean, pharma-like environment.” Fully-funded with one of the largest R&D budgets focused on plant genetics and optimizing consumer efficacy, TGOD intends to become a branded consumer goods company established as “the Whole Foods for the cannabis industry.” Well on its way, the company has partnered with Aurora Larssen Projects Inc. (ALPS), which recently built an 800,000-sq.-ft facility outside of Edmonton and is now assisting TGOD in construction of its 1 million-sq.-ft facility. Aurora Cannabis (ACB.TO) (ACBFF), one of the world’s most innovative cannabis companies, has invested more than $78 million into TGOD, validating its distinguished organic strategy, R&D, beverage divisions, management team and international expansion plans. To date, TGOD has completed several accomplishments, including raising more than $350 million in funding, integrating nearly 49 percent ownership in a Jamaican company with full seed-to-sale capabilities and moving forward with the building of its 1-million-sq.-ft. production facility. In addition, it is working on distribution agreements throughout Latin America and Europe to leverage TGOD’s 170,000 kilo production potential to ensure capturing the highest margins. With a strong strategic plan in place, widening legalization and pending expansions of its infrastructure both domestically and internationally, Athaide says TGOD is looking forward to taking its dynamic business model to the next level, pursuing opportunities for continued expansion, diversity and growth, whether they involve partnerships, joint ventures, acquisitions or the latest in disruptive technologies.
