DENVER, Dec. 19, 2022 /CNW/ – PRESS RELEASE – Medicine Man Technologies, operating as Schwazze, a vertically integrated, multi-state operating cannabis company with assets in Colorado and New Mexico, reaches company milestone of 40 dispensaries across both states. On Dec. 15, Schwazze closed the transaction to acquire certain assets of Lightshade Labs LLC. The transaction included the adult-use Lightshade dispensaries located at 503 Havana St. in Aurora, as well as 2215 E. Mississippi Ave. in Denver’s vibrant Washington Park neighborhood. The consideration for the acquisition was US$2.75 million which was paid as all cash.
