Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgement or negative reactions, this is thanked to my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed.

The round was led by a private equity firm to support Alt Thirty Six‘s digital payment solution.

The company’s innovative platform eliminates the need for cash in the cannabis industry by using blockchain technology and Dash, a decentralized digital asset, to facilitate the transfer of funds at dispensaries and cannabis businesses.

Alt Thirty Six will use the funding to further drive company expansion, advance the platform’s technical functions and abilities, expand proper licensing in target states across the U.S., while maintaining focus on compliance and regulation. Ultimately, the capital will be used to help Alt Thirty Six achieve mass consumer adoption throughout the cannabis industry.

“We are committed to revolutionizing the cannabis space by increasing access to compliant digital payments, making transactions easier and faster for all cannabis businesses,” said Ken Ramirez, co-founder and CEO of Alt Thirty Six. “This new Series A funding round provides us access to the resources we need to help facilitate our vision for one of the fastest growing industries in the country.”

Alt Thirty Six‘s recent company announcements include a partnership with CannTrade, a leading provider of cannabis software technology, and the hiring of Chief Architect Jason Breidis, a payments expert whose work led to the acceptance of electronic payments at McDonald’s restaurants and is used to process billions of dollars in transactions.

“We fully support Alt Thirty Six‘s innovative payment technology and dedication to providing the cannabis industry with an alternative to cash,” says the private equity firm. “We are thrilled to lead this funding round. Alt Thirty Six brings a new, payments-focused element to our portfolio, adding tremendous value to the cannabis businesses.”

Bluegrass Farmaceuticals, a botanical therapeutics company, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with entertainer, icon and businessman Nelly. The partnership is Bluegrass Farmaceuticals’ first association with a high-profile public figure.

Nelly said, “A lot of people recognize me as an entertainer, but don’t know about all the other projects I passionately work on. Doing something that has a positive impact on people’s lives is extremely important to me. That’s why I chose to partner with Bluegrass [Farmaceuticals]. They’re creating products that will have an immediate effect on the lives of thousands… probably millions. I knew I had to be involved.”

Bluegrass Farmaceuticals produces natural health and wellness products including select botanical preparations and in-home technology for extraction and consumption of botanical therapeutics. The first devices designed to facilitate in-home extraction and consumption of Cannabis nanotherapeutics include High Note™, FizzyFreak™, NXtract™ & BudderFly™. Several other devices, botanical products and patches are under development and the company has filed several patents.

Bluegrass Farmaceuticals’ Chief Executive Officer, Dan Zhu (Danielle) Tumey, highlights the great match between Nelly’s profile and the unique mission of the company: “Unlike most cannabis-derived product companies, Bluegrass Farmaceuticals will only create ‘pharmaceutical grade’ products, and Nelly’s involvement with innovative ways of fighting health and social problems fits with our mission.”
