Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the company, which recently opened its 13th RISE dispensary, has licenses for 50 retail locations across seven highly regulated U.S. markets. Established in 2014, GTI employs more than 350 people and serves hundreds of thousands of patients and customers each year. Revenue in 2017 exceeded US$20 million, with the company on track for continued growth in 2018.

Ben Kovler, Founder and Chairman, stated: "Listing on the CSE provides access to capital to fuel the company's strategic growth. But it doesn't change our focus on capital allocation and execution to optimize shareholder value. We will continue to move the business forward while providing the best possible customer experience."

Pete Kadens, CEO, added: "The opportunity to touch the lives of more customers through expanding our brand distribution footprint and the RISE retail experience is extremely rewarding. We have the right infrastructure and people in place -- and we will work to maximize GTI's potential for the shareholders who've entrusted us with their capital."
