Cannabis companies are using increasingly refined acquisition tactics to create vertical integration.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (XETR: TH8) has developed a refined acquisition strategy, assessing more than one hundred targets before settling on a select few to acquire. Cresco Labs Inc. (CSE: CL) (OTCQX: CRLBF), one of America’s leading multistate cannabis companies, has recently announced its agreement to acquire CannaRoyalty Corp. (OTCQX: ORHOF), giving it control over a vast distribution platform. In Canada, HEXO Corp. (TSX: HEXO) (NYSE American: HEXO) has been given approval to acquire Newstrike, as the country’s vibrant industry consolidates following recent dramatic growth. For those without vertical integration, companies such as DionyMed Brands Inc. (CSE: DYME) (OTCQB: DYMEF) provide vital support services, including logistics and distribution.
