Acreage Holdings, Inc. (“Acreage”) (CSE: ACRG.U) (OTC: ACRGF) is buying New Jersey’s Compassionate Care Foundation, Inc. which is a vertically integrated cannabis nonprofit corporation. The deal is subject to state approval and the amount of the deal was not disclosed. However, the state of New Jersey did state that Compassionate Care reported $4.9 million in revenue in 2018, badly trailing Curaleaf’s $19 million in revenue for 2018.
“I’m thrilled to finally welcome CCF into the Acreage family,” said Kevin Murphy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Acreage. “This reorganization will result in increased access to affordable medical cannabis for New Jersey’s existing patients in short order. Moreover, we have long believed that upon adult-use legalization, the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions will be the preeminent cannabis market in the U.S. and Acreage is best positioned of any U.S. cannabis company to benefit.”
