What Happened

Vertical Companies, which has raised $65 million so far, will use the capital to build out its multi-state infrastructure and bring its brands to market.

Why This Is Important

At $58 million, Vertical managed to close one of the largest Series A funding rounds in the cannabis industry. The company operates in Arizona, Kentucky and California, but also has strategic partnerships that allow it to take advantage of markets in the U.S. and globally.

The funding will allow Vertical to grow and strengthen its position as one of the largest cannabis CPG companies in the U.S.
