One of our recent favorites, Discovery Gold Corp (OTCMKTS:DCGD), has been back on the move, breaking out to new fresh highs. If you aren’t familiar with this reverse merger story, you might do well to take a closer look. This was a relatively pristine shell that jumped nicely into the heart of the cannabis patch. And it has been adding talent to the team in several steps to build out the brain trust. Its latest move was its announcement last week that it has added Dr. Jeffrey Sharkey to its Strategic Advisory Board.
According to the release, “Dr. Sharkey will assist the Company in its State, Federal, and International government affairs and regulatory efforts. Dr. Sharkey is a nationally recognized marijuana and hemp government relations consultant based in the State of Florida. He was directly involved in the development of legislation creating the state’s medical marijuana legislation in 2014 and each year’s legislative expansion of the program. He is the founder and President of the Medical Marijuana Business Association of Florida which has provided rational policy guidance to policy makers and assists individuals with identifying and securing new business opportunities in the state’s expanding medical marijuana industry.”
Discovery Gold Corp (OTCMKTS:DCGD) bills itself now as a reverse merger play with a cannabis theme, taking on the DBA of GRN Holding Corporation. This new identity emerged in the clear public light after the company announced that it had added venture and financing industry veteran Justin Costello to its Strategic Advisory Board. In this capacity, Mr. Costello is expected to help guide Cannabis Global Inc.’s strategic planning, investments and partnerships in the rapidly growing cannabis industry.
Mr. Costello is the President and CEO of Discovery Gold Corporation (OTC PINK: DCGD) of Seattle, Washington, a fast growing, publicly traded new entrant into the cannabis marketplace. He also manages and is the CEO of GRN Funds, LLC, a private equity and hedge fund that secures banking resources for small to medium businesses and ancillaries.
“We are excited to have Justin Costello join the Cannabis Global Inc. team. His expertise in strategic planning and venture capital will help our growing company to identify potential acquisition partners and the best sources of capital to allow us to meet our aggressive growth plans in not only the industry hemp sector, but also within other areas of the cannabis industry,” commented Arman Tabatabaei, CEO of the Company. “We welcome Justin to Cannabis Global family.”
