One company that has been working to establish a more diversified public image in the pot stock space is Green Thumb Industries Inc (OTCMKTS:GTBIF). As we have noted, one can make the case that this type of move is an important step toward differentiation in a space that is constantly at risk of homogenization. As a case in point, the company just announced its Dogwalkers brand has partnered on an awareness campaign with four animal rescue organizations: Foundation for TJO Animals in Massachusetts; TAPS No-Kill Shelter in Illinois; the Nevada SPCA in Nevada; and PetConnect Rescue in Maryland.
According to the release, “Dogwalkers are mini, pocket-sized cannabis pre-rolls and can be purchased at dispensaries located in Massachusetts, Illinois and Maryland. Each tin of Dogwalkers purchased benefits local animals in need.” Shares of the stock have tracked sideways over the past 4 sessions after putting in a strong show of support in the $8.50 area.
