DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Todd Mitchem, chief revenue officer of O.PenVAPE, the nation's largest cannabis brand, will moderate a panel of experts at the Northeast CannaBusiness Symposium, 9:20am to 10:50am on Saturday, March 15, Courtyard Boston Downtown, 275 Tremont St., Boston, MA 02116.
The event is produced by the National Cannabis Industry Association and the panel discussion will focus on the testing and extraction science of cannabis. Mitchem was chosen not only because he represents O.penVAPE but because he has participated in and moderated many panel discussions during his career as a corporate leader prior to making the switch to the cannabis industry.
"I am very proud of the work of the NCIA. The fact that they have invited me to moderate this expert panel is humbling. This is an important forum for O.penVAPE and those who want to learn about the cannabis business", noted Mitchem.
Known as the "Google of Cannabis," O.penVAPE is the market leader in the manufacture of medicinal and recreational cannabis oils which it produces through affiliates using CO2 extraction or Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE). Since February 1, 2014, O.penVAPE sells four-to-five units every minute of every day at $25 to $55 each. While in Massachusetts, Todd also will be talking with potential licensees in the state who wish to license the O.penVAPE brand.
"As Massachusetts continues to prepare for cannabis use and regulations, there are many entrepreneurs interested in the CO2 extraction process, which is the most natural and effective way to extract beneficial oils from plant matter," Mitchem said. "O.penVAPE sees great potential here."
Mitchem said O.PenVAPE, as the market leader, has established networks with successful licensees in Colorado, Washington and California, with Oregon beginning operations soon. O.penVAPE is poised to develop partnerships as soon as possible in Massachusetts. Mitchem will be conducting meetings to vet O.PenVAPE business licensees in the state.
"As the national leader, we have the systems, structures, leadership and professional outlook in place to ensure the success of our affiliates," Mitchem said. "We understand the importance of communicating that cannabis use is an adult product that should be used responsibly, so its medicinal and recreational benefits can be put to good use."
O.penVAPE is the largest national cannabis brand in the United States and has been featured on CNN, CNBC, The Wall Street Journal, and many news outlets around the world. O.penVAPE, through affiliates licensed to sell its cannabis filled cartridges, vaporizer devices and related products, distributes is products for use with cannabis oil in states that have legalized cannabis sales. O.penVAPE, with branding licensing agreements, distributes its products to legally authorized cannabis operators around the United States. With the tag line, "It's what's inside that counts," O.PenVAPE leverages knowledge from it's affiliated Colorado-based labs, Organa Labs and Bakked. These two state-of-the-art cannabis oil extraction facilities extract cannabis oil and fill cartridges for the Colorado market. The knowledge gained by these organizations is then shared with branding licensees nationwide who, with authorization from their respective states, also extract, fill, package and distribute O.penVAPE branded products in their states.
