About mCig, Inc.
mCig, Inc. (MCIG) is a technology company focused on two long-term secular trends sweeping the globe: (1) The decriminalization and legalization of marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes (2) The adoption of electronic vaporizing cigarettes (commonly known as "eCigs") by the world's 1.2 Billion smokers. The company manufactures and retails the mCig(R) line of products including the mCig(R) 2.0 -- the world's most affordable vaporizer priced at only $10 to the mCig(R) 3.0 -- one of the most advanced personal vaporizers on the market. Designed in the USA -- the mCig(R) provides a superior smoking experience by heating plant material, waxes, and oils delivering a smoother inhalation experience. The company also owns Vapolution, Inc. which manufactures and retails home-use vaporizers such as the Vapolution 3.0. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, VitaCig, Inc. the company manufactures and retails the VitaCig(R), a $5 nicotine-free eCig that delivers a water-vapor mixed with vitamins and natural flavors.

The company believes that a well regulated marijuana industry is emerging as more states follow the lead of Washington and Colorado in legalizing marijuana. A similar trend is developing within the eCig industry following the first acquisition of an electronic cigarette brand (Blucigs) by a traditional tobacco company Lorillard Inc. for $135 million followed by another acquisition in February 2014 by Altria Group Inc. of Green Smoke for $150 million. Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog estimates that eCig sales may rise from $1 Billion in 2013 to $10 billion over the next three years.
mCig, Inc. (MCIG) has positioned itself as a first mover at the intersection of these two trends and hopes to create shareholder value by making the mCig(R) one of the leading choices for electronic consumption of plant material. - See more at: http://www.mcig.org/investors/investor-opportunity-subpage/
