PHOENIX — Item 9 Labs Corp. (OTCQX: INLB) (“Item 9 Labs” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated cannabis dispensary franchisor and operator that produces premium products, today announced that CEO Andrew Bowden, Chief Strategy Officer Jeffrey Rassás and Chief Franchise Officer Mike Weinberger will present at the Sequire Cannabis Conference held on April 20, 2021.

The Item 9 Labs team will provide an overview of the Company, including its award-winning products and franchising capabilities, expansion of its cultivation site and other key initiatives. They will also speak in-depth on the value of the recently completed merger with ONE Cannabis Group (OCG Inc.) and its dispensary franchise brand Unity Rd., and how the combined offerings can accelerate the Company’s growth in the current favorable regulatory climate.
“With consistent, positive advancements in the cannabis industry, the U.S. market is poised for substantial growth,” Bowden said. “We believe our dispensary franchise concept coupled with our premium products positions us to benefit both financially and geographically.”
As the Unity Rd. franchise network expands, Item 9 Labs plans to develop or partner with cultivation facilities in states where Unity Rd. franchise partners open cannabis retail shops. This move will give Unity Rd. operators front-of-the-line access to a reliable product supply chain and eases barriers to entry for Item 9 Labs products in new markets, allowing for increased revenue in product licensing, wholesale, and franchise royalties.
Bowden added, “Franchising is the most viable method for dispensary brands to expand nationally because of greatly reduced capital expenditures, resulting in accelerated scale. Traditional multi-state operators need to fund all business development and expansion, while franchise brands can scale more rapidly at a lower cost because shops are locally owned and operated by their franchisees.”
