A Patent With Potential to Disrupt the Global Tobacco Industry
Vireo Health: A 10 State Cannabis Operator
CEO of Vireo Health, Kyle Kingsley M.D, speaks about the cannabis company’s patent that covers the protective effects of cannabinoids when mixed with tobacco.
“Vireo Health is a 10 state cannabis operator in the United States focused on vertically integrated opportunities and the highest yield states such as New York, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Maryland and Arizona.
Vireo Health has a position in scientific leadership which leads to disproportionate intellectual property opportunities like the recent patent that we were granted in the United States. The patent covers the protective effects of cannabinoids when mixed with tobacco. This has the potential not just to save lives but also to disrupt the nearly trillion dollar global tobacco industry.
We’re really in states that are early in the process, just getting started with the consumers. We actually have five full time positions on our team. Vireo is also stacked with appropriate legal teams and scientists and this drives a lot of opportunities in the MSO space. There’s also a great engineering team and partnerships on tap. They’re going to drive the next generation of processing equipment.
We are also excited about the next generation of packaging and the next generation of consumer products in the cannabis space.
Vireo is pretty uniquely differentiated as a multi-state operator because of our scientific and medical focus. I think that’s going to lead to advantages for us over the other multi-state operators. I’m not aware of any other companies that are so focused on replacing this terrible triad. We want to replace opioids, tobacco and alcohol. Building real replacements for that excites me as a physician and as a business person obviously if you can do those three things you’re looking at a pretty remarkable business.”
