Item 9 Labs Presentation at Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference
–  DATE: Thursday, February 25, 2021
–  TIME: 11:30 AM Eastern Time

Bowden will provide an overview of the Company, including its award-winning products, the ongoing operations expansion and other key initiatives, as well as the growth opportunities resulting from the favorable regulatory environment. He also plans to speak in-depth on why franchising is the growth vehicle that will propel the cannabis industry forward and how the upcoming merger with ONE Cannabis Group (OCG Inc.) and its dispensary franchise brand Unity Rd. complements the Company’s overall growth strategy.

“The cannabis industry is ripe for the next growth driver to bring it to new heights, and that vehicle is franchising,” Bowden said. “Franchising significantly reduces barriers to entry for prospective entrepreneurs and for dispensary brands seeking national scale. It’s the most viable method for expansion due to greatly reduced capital expenditures, resulting in accelerated scale. For example, traditional multi-state operators need to fund all business development, whereas franchise brands can scale at a more rapid rate and at a lower cost.”

The Company’s Chief Strategy Officer Jeffrey Rassás will also be speaking on a panel with Jeff Zuber, partner at Zubler Lawler & Del Duca, and Kim Kovacs, CEO of The Arcview Group, on February 26, 2021.
