PCG is a multi-faceted consulting firm specializing in breeding, mapping and cataloging unique heirloom and land race medical cannabis genetics, with specific emphasis on developing and implementing sustainable, organic, highly efficient cultivation infrastructures, technologies, methodologies and techniques for the growing medical cannabis industry. PCG is comprised of seasoned medical cannabis growers and operators, botanists, scientists, horticulturists, and researchers that collectively have been consulting primarily in California for over 15 years. PCG has consulted and played a vital role in a private analytical study that charted and genetically isolated key strains for the purpose of data mining and archiving the medicinal benefits of those strains. PCG is aiming to bring its full support of knowledge, expertise, resources and contacts to oversee and help execute the needs of the Company and its clients. PCG is currently working with 33 medical cannabis entities. The services PCG provides range from day to day operations of non-profit retail store fronts, to small to large patient delivery services, to their cultivation counterpart, which includes indoor, outdoor and greenhouse cultivators, and preparing for IP rights acquisition, branding and licensing of genetics in the industry.
PCG is the primary consultant of collectives in California that hold branding agreements with Evergreen Licensing for the purpose of helping build an industry standard brand.
