Evaluation Process

Our evaluation process involves identifying and becoming deeply knowledgeable about legal cannabis industry sectors which are fragmented and consolidating and then looking for opportunities in those sectors that can grow both organically and by acquiring and integrating similar businesses.



Whether you are an existing enterprise or just in the concept phase, working with like-minded strategic partners can be the difference between having mediocre success and achieving market dominance. You have worked hard to bring your vision this far. Advancing your vision to the next phase will require a strategic partner with a synergistic vision to achieve the results you desire.
With over seven decades of private and public finance experience, the First Harvest Team can be that strategic partner you need in order to accomplish your goals.

We see a world where visionary entrepreneurs and like-minded advocates can succeed together by bringing innovative medical cannabis based therapies to market.
