Hydroponics, Inc., a technology-enabled provider of global agricultural supplies, data and analytics, and procurement for large scale, commercial cannabis farms, announced the acquisition of Grow Shop Hydroponics.

Hydroponics, Inc. has numerous partner-farms in the desert, and Grow Shop Hydroponics is located next door to over one million square feet of canopy.

Alston continued, “This acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to world-class cannabis supply chain best practices. Not only is this transaction immediately accretive for our existing platform and shareholders but it also affords us the opportunity to better serve existing and future cultivators who place a premium on a seamless and economical procurement cycle.”

Hydroponics, Inc. is a 10-year old company with a rich history in the California cannabis industry. Acquired through a sidecar investment firm funded by notable CEOs, entrepreneurs, and family offices, the investment and operating team identified the opportunity to disrupt and professionalize the supply chain utilizing Hydroponics, Inc. as its platform. Since the acquisition, the Company has expanded its geographic footprint into 15 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, augmented the management team with procurement and data experts, and developed best-in-class agricultural solutions and analytics for large-scale cultivators.
