As the year comes to an end we are grateful for all the accomplishments we have made to date. We spent the weekend moving into Orthogonal's new space. 16 acres of land around us to explore growing hemp and many other plant products. As many of us our getting ready for the holidays. We are in full swing as many of our portfolio companies our fundraising. Last time I checked, thinking about 11 of them. We are busy working on deploying psilocibin.com which will be a partnership of companies that believe in the same culture and integrity as we do. This is a domain we own that will be informational in the plant medicine movement. Maui Raw is getting ready for Expo West as we bring our products to the mainland. Every food buyer in the US will be there and we are ready to show them why we won best product on Maui this past month. Many of our portfolio companies especially Randy’s Remedy are waiting for the Farm Bill to pass in short order. We know that the next Trillion dollar business will follow in this order of ingredients; hemp, cannabis and mushrooms. As Oregon gets ready to put psilocybin on the 2020 ballot we see the landscape of federal legalization of Hemp and Cannabis to be on the horizon and empathegon medicines after that. We are putting the last pieces of our Form1A together as we get ready for 2019. We’ve learned some very valuable lessons as Orthogonal will be managing partner and controlling equity holder in all of its new partnerships. Our baseline is honesty, integrity and ethics. Culture is everything to us. As I review term sheets the one thing that resonates with me when I speak to investors is All In. We don’t look at how much money we’ve raised or any conditional statements. This is All In for my partner and I and my family. We are in this for a very long time, our money and personal shares are on the line every step of the way. In the next few days we will be announcing an AMA call for all of our investors and the public to ask us questions of what we are doing and where we are going. I will be in SF, NY and LA in the next 11 days. Please reach out to me if anyone wants to meet live and direct. Mahalo!
