Since 2012, an estimated 21,000 to 33,000 canna-businesses entered the U.S. market and 29 states plus the District of Columbia have legalized the sale and use of medically-prescribed cannabis or recreational adult-use. As more states follow this trend, the demand for cannabis-related products and services will continue to rise. For the Cannabis Industry to flourish, the right resources need to be in place to support this rapid growth.
Doyen Element’s mission is to bring stature and speed to the entire burgeoning cannabis ecosystem. By creating a “consultancy” that provides category defining business acumen and direct access to an experienced management team with hands-on operational experience, the Company will provide nascent and middle market cannabis ventures with the cross-functional know-how needed to quickly accelerate their canna-businesses.
Because Doyen Elements is a non-plant touching entity, the Company is uniquely positioned to realize the full prosperity of the booming Cannabis Industry.
GREEN CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS
Doyen Elements is utilizing LEED-Certified green construction and technology solutions to build grow facilities, including the innovative Syntheto-Foam System proven to be mold and pest resistant.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPEMENT
Doyen Elements works to actively research and develop cutting-edge technologies to benefit its business partners. The first of many patents to come is a national licensing agreement for Medical Cannabis Transdermal Patches which offer an alternative way to distribute CBD or legal cannabis into the body to support pain relief and other ailments.
Pending the acquisition of Hydroponics Depot, Doyen Elements will sell hydroponic grow equipment, climate-control systems, advanced lighting technology, plant fertilizer and other high-quality supplies to optimize production.
REAL ESTATE SERVICES
The new state-of-the-art grow facility in Pueblo, Colorado will be the first in what will be a collection of real estate assets Doyen Elements will own and lease out to licensed cultivators and dispensaries.
CONSULTING & MANAGEMENT SERVICES
The Company has over nine years of operational experience in the Cannabis Industry to offer industry-leading consulting and management services to existing businesses and fledgling states just beginning to tap into the industry.
Doyen Elements intends to radically improve the success rate of companies entering the quickly emerging Cannabis Industry. To accomplish this, funds will go towards completing the Equity Purchase Agreements of 16 long-standing, high-performing companies within the sectors of real estate, management consulting, research & development, industrial equipment, and green construction operations to provide a “one-stop shop” the Cannabis Industry needs to bolster growth through expert consulting and the infusion of "smart money."
Equity Purchase Agreement Companies
This community-supported project is creating upwards of 160 jobs.
One current project funds are being allocated to is the property in Pueblo, Colorado that is being transformed into one of the largest grow facilities in North America; a 234,000 sq. ft. building that will contain a cultivation facility, testing lab, office and infused products manufacturer to be leased out to legal cannabis tenants.
The Cannabis Industry is projected to double in size from $22 billion in 2017 to $44 billion by the end of 2020. An industry report by Business Daily indicates that sales of medical-use legal cannabis alone reached approximately $4.3 billion in 2016, a 26% increase in sales from 2015.
The ancillary company market size itself is extremely difficult to calculate due to the diverse range of offerings and types of businesses included, but it easily stretches into billions of dollars when taking into consideration the amount of money dispensaries and infused products companies spend on equipment and services to operate the businesses in the cannabis space.
Notably, 38% of ancillary service companies serve more than one state, with the bulk of this group involved in three or more states, according to a survey conducted by CannaBusiness Media. This makes ancillary businesses the highest percentage of multi-state businesses in the industry.
The addition of new Medical Marijuana (MMJ) states and the emerging recreational market will also create hundreds of millions of dollars in additional revenues for ancillary firms in coming years, making it arguably the most promising segment of the industry.
Ancillary companies are a large, often undervalued part of the Cannabis Industry even though it’s companies like Doyen Elements, who touch all areas of the industry except the actual cannabis plant, that are especially poised for national expansion because they do not face the same legal risks as businesses that touch cannabis.
Just like new laws and regulations have paved the way for the Cannabis Industry to flourish, a little known rule called Regulation A+ has made it possible for everyday investors, and the public at large, to gain access to investment opportunities in early-stage companies.
Now, both accredited and non-accredited investors who believe in Doyen Elements can get in on the ground floor of the emerging Cannabis Industry and watch their investment grow with the Company. Looking forward, Doyen Elements intends to file an application to have its Common Stock listed for public trading on both the NYSE-MKT Exchange and the OTCQX Over-the-Counter Market.
Doyen Elements brings together a leadership team that merges traditional business management with a sizeable, commercial marijuana operator with years of knowledge in large-scale manufacturing and distribution in the U.S.
