Terra Tech to Take Complete Ownership of Nevada’s Cannabis Dispensary

ME Staff

Cannabis-focused agriculture firm Terra Tech Corp. (OTCQX: TRTC) has agreed to acquire the remaining stake in the Blüm Reno dispensary in Nevada.

Under the agreement, Terra Tech will increase its stake in the Reno, Nev.-based dispensary to 100% from 50%. The acquisition includes the Blüm dispensary’s cannabis licenses as well.

Additionally, Terra Tech’s ownership in the building which houses the dispensary will increase from 50% to 100%.

The agreement is subject to the approval of the Nevada Department of Taxation. The company expects to receive within 60 to 90 days.

“This purchase allows us to have complete ownership and control of the Reno Blüm dispensary, which provides much-needed cannabis products to the local medical and adult-use markets, at a price that we believe accurately represents a fair value,” Terra Tech CEO Derek Peterson said in a statement.

“[The deal] also settles the lawsuit with Heidi Loeb Hegerich and we are pleased to put this matter behind us and look to the future. We continue to execute against our growth strategy in Nevada, and have recently shipped our first products from our new Sparks, Nevada cultivation facility to our retail Blüm dispensaries across the state. These will be marketed to our customers and patients under our premium IVXX brand,” Peterson added.
