While some investors still view the marijuana market as a new industry, the mammoth potential of the cannabis industry — both in the United States and worldwide — cannot be discounted. While marijuana has not yet been legalized in the U.S. at the federal level, 29 states as well as the District of Columbia have, so far, passed laws or initiatives to legalize or regulate it, and the industry has been growing at an unexpectedly high rate. Some savvy companies are safeguarding against the risk of violating present federal laws by capitalizing on the growth of the cannabis industry in a hands-off way, serving marijuana-related companies without touching the plant themselves. One such company is SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING).
As discussed in a recent article (http://dtn.fm/msS5J), SinglePoint is building an acquisition portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with a focus on innovative technologies. Within the marijuana industry, the company is pursuing different opportunities to build corporate value and maintain diversification. SingleSeed, SinglePoint’s marijuana vertical, is serving cannabis dispensaries that are currently hampered in their operations due to the present lack of banking options for businesses within the marijuana industry. SingleSeed is engaged in providing mobile payment processing solutions, text message marketing and business tools to marijuana dispensaries, with a long-term goal of building SingleSeed.com into a hub where dispensaries can purchase the products they need to conduct business. It is also planned that SingleSeed will offer consulting services for cannabis businesses that need assistance in getting a foothold and becoming successful in their strategies.
SinglePoint’s own strategy further involves the utilization of marijuana-related technology through its investment in Convectium, which is a successful equipment, branding and packaging solutions provider to the marijuana industry. Convectium has developed the very first cartridge and vape pen oil filling machines created for wholesale distribution to cannabis dispensaries. The 710Shark and 710Seal machines offered by Convectium, currently sold through the EquipCanna.com brand, can fill and package more than 100 cartridges or disposable vape pens in 30 seconds, revolutionizing the inefficient traditional method of hand-filling cartridges. Convectium additionally operates a consumer brand that includes HazeSticks and BlackoutX, with a customer reach that encompasses more than 52 countries.
SinglePoint recently signed a reseller agreement that enables the company to begin onboarding “high risk” merchant accounts, which includes more than 100 types of businesses. Cannabis businesses are currently counted among these high-risk business types, along with enterprises like auctions, gambling, vape pen sales, online gaming and others. Serving SinglePoint’s diversification strategy, this move will enable the company to provide payment solutions to cannabis businesses as soon as the marijuana industry becomes bankable. Offering payment solutions to various verticals in this way enlarges SinglePoint’s target market and paves the way for enormous success in catering to an underserved market.
