About the Company:
The Company is based in Los Angeles, California. Through our operating subsidiary Better Business Consultants, Inc. DBA MJ Business Consultants, we plan to provide capital to our canna-business clientele, assume the role as landlord and lease properties to those canna-businesses, and provide consulting and technology to develop, enhance, or expand existing and newly formed infrastructures. We intend to create a nationally branded chain of cannabis retail stores under the "Pineapple Express" name as soon as federal laws allow, which will be supported by anticipated Company-owned cultivation and processing facilities, and will feature products from anticipated Company-owned manufacturers. As long as cannabis remains federally illegal our operations will be limited to consulting, product licensing, leasing to and investing in existing and new canna-businesses, selling industry specific technology, and providing ancillary support services. We believe that our competitive advantages include our wealth of experience, business model, exclusive proprietary technology, and key industry contacts in an industry that is foreign to most. It is our expectation that these factors will set us apart from most of our competitors.
