The Company

DIEGO PELLICER WORLDWIDE

The Worldwide Leader in Property Acquisitions and Leasing in the Emerging Cannabis Arena.

WHAT WE DO:

Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. is focused on acquiring and developing legally compliant locations for the purpose of leasing to licensed operators engaged in the cannabis business.

We profit from the lease payments of our real estate holdings and from the sale of our branded, non-cannabis products.

Finding, acquiring and leasing locations that are both geographically desirable (good neighborhoods, visible locations, architecturally beautiful buildings, ample parking, etc.) and legally-compliant (properly distant from schools, parks, churches, etc.) is a complicated business – one that we have mastered by assembling a world class leadership team, board of directors and advisory panel.

Being first is more important than being best. Thankfully, Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. has mastered both. We’re #1 ranked for the search term “premium marijuana” and we’ve already secured valuable locations.

WHAT WE DON’T DO:

1. Grow Marijuana.

2. Process Marijuana.

3. Sell Marijuana.

4. Profit directly from the sale of Marijuana.

Our tenants are stand-alone, independent businesses. Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. has no ownership in them. Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. has executed merger agreements with some of its tenants whereby it has the option to acquire the tenants business if and when it becomes legal to do so. There is no guarantee the options will be exercised.
