#40: Husband & Wife Created First Publicly Traded US Company That Sells Marijuana

August 30, 2018

Amy and Derek, the co-founders of the publicly traded Terra Tech Corp. and Blüm dispensaries swung by the Foodbeast office to talk about creating what High Times refers to as "the closest thing to a Starbucks in the dispensary world."

In just under a decade's time, Amy and Derek have built a publicly traded cannabis company with a market cap of $125 million as of August 30th, 2018. We chat with them about the early days of their relationship, founding a company that sells a product that the federal government doesn't deem legal and ultimately, what innovations we can expect in America's budding cannabis industry.
