We keep looking for fresh evidence of a bottom that can hold in a number of cannabis plays, and an interesting candidate right now for that kind of action around a key technical level is Curaleaf Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:CURLF). That key level is $6.25/share, and the stock is knocking on its door once again for the fourth time in 6 months. To make matters more interesting, the company just announced that it has launched its initiative with the Veterans Cannabis Project (VCP), an organization that advocates for legal and supported access of medical cannabis for veterans through the Department of Veterans Affairs, in Oregon.
According to the release, customers can now purchase a custom-designed Veterans Cannabis Project pre-roll product, with a portion of all proceeds benefiting the VCP. Each box includes five pre-rolls (total of 2.5 grams) of UKU flower – one of Oregon’s top-selling flower brands – and will be available for $13.

We are proud to be able to support our veterans as they look to improve their quality of life.”

As noted above, CURLF just announced that it has launched its initiative with the Veterans Cannabis Project (VCP), an organization that advocates for legal and supported access of medical cannabis for veterans through the Department of Veterans Affairs, in Oregon.
While this is a clear factor, it has been incorporated into a trading tape characterized by a pretty dominant offer, which hasn’t been the type of action CURLF shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -5% on above-average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities.
“As a veteran myself, I was grateful to be made aware of how medical cannabis can help me,” said Doug Distaso, VCP’s Executive Director. “There are millions of veterans, but federal law makes it illegal for Veteran Health Administration physicians to recommend cannabis as a treatment. This is something we are looking to change. Our partnership with Curaleaf will help veterans gain legal access to cannabis.”
At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $2.3M, CURLF has a significant war chest ($230.6M) of cash on the books, which compares with about $34.9M in total current liabilities. CURLF is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $117M. In addition, the company is seeing recent top-line growth, with sequential quarterly revenues growing at 11%. This may be a very interesting story and we will look forward to updating it again soon.
