CEO Of Popular Marijuana-Vape Startup On Changing The Industry

  • Published on Mar 4, 2019
  • Pax Labs CEO Bharat Vasan says that nothing in consumer packaged goods in the next 50 to 100 years will be bigger than marijuana.
    Pax Labs CEO Bharat Vasan says the Pax Era - which is used for cannabis oil - is the fastest growing part of the business. Vasan says it has a Keurig-type model. Pax produces the vape pens and the empty pods and its partners fill the pods with cannabis oil and distribute them.
    Vasan says the company is currently raising its first price round since splitting from its sister company nicotine-vape firm Juul. Juul has since reached a $38 billion valuation based on an investment from Altria in the company in December of last year.
    Pax has received equity financing from institutional investors such as Tiger Global and Tao Capital.
    When asked about a possible IPO in 2019, Vasan said that they would like to list on a US exchange. He feels that American companies are leading the way in cannabis. But as Canada has gone through this wave of legalization there are American companies listing in Canada. Vasan hopes that Pax can be an American company listing on a US exchange and adds "maybe sometime this year, maybe next year, we'll see."

    Such a shame that UK entrepreneurs are being left behind and excluded from this new industry. I would love to get involved in the cannabis industry, having been a grower and consumer for years. Unfortunately, however, by the time the UK legalises, the market will be dominated by more established brands and products from the US, Canada and other nations that are taking the lead. I wish this company great success, vaping is definitely going to play a huge part in the cannabis market. I love to vape oil over flower, and over smoking, but it is very difficult to obtain here in the UK unless you make it yourself, and even then you are generally limited to sativa strains, which almost exclusively dominate the illegal market, unless you also grow your own, and I don't fancy having my front door taken off its hinges by the police again anytime soon, especially now that I have children! This does really look like a great and convenient product and I could certainly see it appealing to new and returning consumers, particularly with the easy of use of the pods, and the 'Juul' inspired design. This is definitely a winner and I can only hope that I will get the opportunity to try one sometime soon!

    The problem is the following:
    pax3 isn't even a good Vaporizer and it costs a lot. probably the most people will start with a good and cheap fenix and stay on these brand. The side that wants to spend much money will buy a storz&bickel device.

    you should put attention on your product for people who would unintentionally bringing it, e.g on vacation, to country that still ban weed because they might be put into penalty of jail or even death. it really still happening today e.g for people bringing cannabis oil
