Apex plans to utilize the money from the funding to boost their progress in cannabis, to transform the company into a national operator, and to launch Bushel44, a platform for hemp businesses.

"As the markets mature, companies are eager for traditional business management software solutions. Our platform not only delivers on those needs, but leans on our 30 years of combined industry experience to solve the nuances and pain-points of wholesale cannabis supply chain," Apex Trading CEO and founder John Manlove, said in a statement. "With hemp in its infancy, we're excited to leverage that technology to help this new industry, though on a much larger scale."

Vikas Desaim of New York-based Welcan Capital commented, "Apex Trading checks off all the boxes with a platform that drives efficiency for customers, years of experience in multiple markets, a track record of success, and leaders that constantly drive for innovation to stay one step ahead of the competition."
