Listen to the podcast:

In today’s podcast I interview David Metzler, CEO of CBD Capital Group, where we discussed how CBD Capital Group best assesses their companies in the CBD space as well as current trends in the CBD market.

When asked how CBD Capital Group assesses companies within the CBD market, David went on to explain some of the key factors they look at first. “We’ve looked, since we started a year ago, at probably 45 companies and have put out 4 term sheets out, did our first deal in April of 2019 and in August we got out second deal lined up and are closing that now. We have a fairly deep understanding of the marketplace. One of the easiest properties to figure out success is just revenue, but we believe that’s not enough. We look at a couple different things in our evaluation framework. We look at what is unique about the product, what is the product quality like and then we look deeply into the supply chain. We have relationships within the supply chain, so if we’re not satisfied with company but their revenue and customer support systems are there, we can apply our expertise to help them redo their supply chain and get high quality CBD with better potency and quality. The other factors for us are competency of manufacturing and delivery of the product to the customers, so we go pretty deeply into the customer experience.”

David also went on to discuss how they look at  the different forms of CBD, whether it is CBD isolate, full spectrum or broad spectrum and where he sees the market heading. “We’re not doing isolate anymore. One of our board members is part of the Hemp Round Table, and if you’re on the inside track and watching what the FDA is going to be doing in the next quarter, most everyone agrees that isolate is going to end up in the pharmaceutical grade, and thereby cut off from mass consumption and have patents involved, with GW Pharmaceuticals being the leader in that. So we believe in full-spectrum CBD. The isolate also adds a lot of chemicals into the product. So broad spectrum and  full spectrum are where we are focussing, we’re sourcing from \Kentucky and we know exactly where the farms are.”

David also went on to discuss the SAFE Banking Act and how that will affect the industry as well as the ways his company has looked to address these banking issues early on. “We realized before we started CBD Capital Group, that merchant processing was going to a problem for a long period of time going forward. Even with the Farm Bill passed last September, it is still almost a year later.  The SAFE Banking Act is going to help a lot there. But what we’ve decided to do was focus on relationships. So all of the companies that we’ve bought and are buying, we have a company in the space and they are processing at below market rates for us. We created that relationship early on so that none of our companies and our money is at risk because we are using this merchant processing solution. For the industry as a whole, there’s companies paying 5% to 6% for merchant processing. Our rates are sub 3, so that’s a huge advantage that we have and our companies have. We’re still super excited that the SAFE Banking Act will pass, because it will only mean that more banks will open up and more banks in the space means that more institutional capital will come into the space.”

David went on to discuss some of the investor trends he and CBD Capital Group have noticed in the market so far as well as some of the largest red flags and opportunities to be aware of moving forward in the industry.

CBD Capital Group announced back in July that it had acquired Medix CBD, a natural medicine and wellness company.

“After evaluating the potential of many U.S.-based cannabidiol (CBD) brands, we are proud to announce the acquisition of Medix CBD for a multitude of reasons including profitability, the company’s unique SEO model and a strong founding story that aligns with our values,” said CBD Capital Group Co-Founder and CEO David Metzler. “We look forward to growing alongside Medix CBD as we combine our ability to raise capital and business guidance with the company’s vast potential and high-quality offerings.”

The CBD Capital Group management team has created or managed over $1 billion over the course of their combined careers. The Company’s primary goal is to become an attractive acquisition target or IPO at a $400 million to $800 million valuation. CBD Capital Group plans to achieve this by acquiring profitable CBD companies ranging from $1 million to $10 million in annual revenue. Though these lifestyle companies typically have limited exit opportunities by themselves, their combined value is highly attractive to mega brands, Private Equity (PE) firms, or in an IPO. After each acquisition, CBD Capital Group supports these businesses and their respective existing leadership teams through expertise in operations, recruiting, finance, marketing, supply chain optimization, retail distribution, and legal strategy.
