NTRR Scouts Opportunities in Underserved Cannabis Financial Services Sector
MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
With cannabis sales spreading across the country thanks to growing
legalization and regulation of the herb, Neutra Corp. (OTCBB: NTRR) is
investigating new opportunities arising in the fledgling industry's
financial services sector.
Nearly all banks remain hesitant and unwilling to work with cannabis
startups, since possession and distribution of the herb is still illegal
under federal law. Cannabis entrepreneurs may produce an airtight
business plan but find themselves unable to secure a loan or even a
checking account, even as demand for these businesses swells in the 23
states where cannabis sales have been approved.
To fill the void, private firms are stepping in, providing equity
financing in cannabis-friendly states as well as alternative capital
such as debt, convertible debt, venture capital and angel investments.
In return, the financiers gain ownership of a portion of the company.
These firms, such as Los Angeles' KindBanking, are providing a lifeline
not only for cultivators and dispensaries, but for ancillary businesses
such as equipment manufacturers, edible product makers, media outlets
Th growing demand for these financial services could open potentially
lucrative new opportunities for Neutra Corp., says company CEO Sydney
"There is a service gap here that we can potentially capitalize on," Mr.
Jim said. "We are considering providing a payment platform that could
help meet the needs of patients and suppliers alike."
By providing technologies and services designed to ensure safer, more
reliable access to cannabis and other nutraceuticals in approved
markets, Neutra Corp. is working to achieve unprecedented growth in 2014
alongside Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTCBB: CBIS), Medical Marijuana Inc.
(OTCBB: MJNA) and Terra Tech Corp. (OTCBB: TRTC).
