Even in light of this news, CRLBF has had a rough past week of trading action, with shares sinking something like -18% in that time. That said, chart support is nearby and we may be in the process of constructing a nice setup for some movement back the other way. Over the past month, shares of the stock have suffered from clear selling pressure, dropping by roughly -25%. What’s more, the company has seen interest climb, with an increase in recent trading volume of 56% above its longer-run average levels.

“As we continue to build our national retail brand and consolidate the five dispensary brands we operate around the country under the Sunnyside* name, we remain focused on ensuring that we deliver against the promise of what Sunnyside* stands for—wellness, education and convenience,” said Charlie Bachtell, Cresco Labs CEO and Co-founder. “New York has a growing medical cannabis patient program of more than 114,000 people who look to dispensaries and their cannabis product forms to treat a variety of qualifying conditions and critical illnesses. With Sunnyside*, we aim to provide a best-in-class shopping experience through ongoing education, product availability and technology. The ease of home delivery provides the convenience that many living in New York will appreciate with the benefit of the quality and consistency that regulated, third-party tested, cannabis products can provide. Home delivery plays a critical role in our ecommerce strategy, and we are excited to offer this service to reach medical cannabis patients in our communities with the right products they need.”

Earning a current market cap value of $1.17B, CRLBF has a significant war chest ($108.2M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $60.6M in total current liabilities.

In addition, the company is seeing recent top-line growth, with sequential quarterly revenues growing at 19.6%. This may be a very interesting story and we will look forward to updating it again soon.
