CIHG is a U.S. holding company that will target existing cannabis companies to become partners as wholly owned subsidiaries. The selected profitable U.S. companies
will have at least $30 million in total annual NOI together.
The holding company will issue its shares of stock to the member companies as owners – shares that will transfer to public shares after we go public. Following acquisition, growth and expansion capital will be provided to the member companies as well as many other value-added benefits.
With these acquisitions, the holding group, as stated above, will become a fully-vertically integrated cannabis company and go public and trade in the U.S. on the OTC and soon after going public on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
About the Member Companies
The potential member cannabis companies in CIHG include operating companies that are clients of our U.S. cannabis CPA and Legal firm partners.
These member companies are in states that have legalized marijuana and permit local companies to be acquired by holding companies. These states include the following:
Arizona ● Arkansas ● Connecticut ● California ● Colorado
Delaware ● Hawaii ● Louisiana ● Maryland
Minnesota ● New Hampshire ● New Jersey ● New York
New Mexico ● West Virginia ● North Dakota ● Ohio Oklahoma ● Pennsylvania ● Rhode Island ● Illinois ● Maine Nevada ● Oregon ● Puerto Rico ● Utah
Our targeted member companies will have the following characteristics:
The first step in acquiring each member company will be a CPA recommendation and a CPA review to ensure that the company is following generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP or U.S. GAAP) as we are a public company on the OTC and then audits as required to go public on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
Overall, the operating performance of our target companies will be (1) reviewed by a CPA prior to filing to go public on the OTC and (2) audited by a CPA prior to filing to go public on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
Initial Shareholders of the Holding Company
Initial shareholders of the holding company will be founders, seed capital investors, initial member companies, advisors and next stage investors providing second tranche funding for member companies to grow and expand.

CIHG’s research addresses the climate in the U.S. that offers investor a factual overview as follows:
Trump’s attorney general, William Barr, has expressed support for pursuing a legislative fix for conflicting state and federal marijuana laws, testifying at a Senate hearing in August 2020 that he would prefer for Congress to pass something like Gardner’s bill instead of maintaining the status quo. The House passed an amendment to spending legislation in June 2020 that would protect all states with legal cannabis programs from federal intervention. The proposed laws would prevent interference from the U.S. Justice Department in states where marijuana is legal, protect cannabis industry employees from federal prosecution, and protect banks servicing cannabis companies from federal banking penalties. Gardner’s bill “to allow federal banking for cannabis companies a major move by the federal government” (Sept 12, 2020).
