The newest additions are part of the company’s expansion in the Centennial State. Earlier this week, Medicine Man said it will acquire Colorado Harvest Company an operator of three cannabis dispensaries, and entered a binding term sheet to acquire five Starbuds dispensaries.

Under the deal announced Thursday, Medicine Men Technologies said it will buy four dispensaries for $37 million, consisting of $18.45 million in cash, the issuance of 3.1 million common shares with a price of $2.98 each and a deferred cash payment of $9.22 million.

Three of those newly purchased dispensaries are based in Denver and the fourth is in Aurora.
