There are many people who are very determined to develop the Cannabis Industry because they were enlightened with the benefits that it can give to many people especially in the country. Altitude Organic Corporation risked into new territory for the medical marijuana industry- that of creating a dispensary brand, reversed with high-quality business consulting and marketing services, to be chartered by independently owned & operated dispensaries. Chief Executive Officer (CEO)/President Brian Cook urbanized the idea of licensing the Federal trademark, “Altitude Organic Medicine” (AOM), to dispensaries who, in return, receive services that many small businesses find cost-prohibitive – national brand recognition, joint marketing services w/ other AOM brand dispensaries, legal support, combined purchasing power for all approved AOM partner products & services, medical consulting, graphic design assistance, commercial real estate placement, and operations support.
Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, although it has been legalized in 16 states and Washington, DC. Altitude Organic Corporation cleverly designed itself to be one of the few businesses within the industry who conduct operations legally under federal, as well as state, law.
In 2010, understanding the need for additional capital infusement and skilled business acumen, Cook guided Altitude Organic Corporation into a venture partnership with the A mergence Group of Scottsdale, AZ, which advises and supports start-up businesses that “introduce edgy, disruptive, and/or innovative technologies in the world market.” After making Altitude Organic Corporation into the first publicly traded medical marijuana management company in the world earlier this year, Cook was chosen to head The Emergence Group as CEO. Additionally, Cook serves on the Board of Directors of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), a medical marijuana advocacy group based in Washington, DC. Cook, who has always believed in the positive aspects of organic, soil-grown marijuana, maintains that Altitude Organics product is stronger, longer-lasting and sweeter-tasting than non-organic product. Because organic marijuana does not need to be flushed in order to eliminate any possible chemical taste, it burns clean, yielding an earthy, natural-tasting smoke. Fertilizers, pesticides or hormones, as opposed to hydroponically produced marijuana, which comprises the majority of medical marijuana current being cultivated and sold to patients.
