The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD) has planted a partnership seed with the cannabis industry.The Atlanta-based retail giant joined Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and Amazon Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) in securing online distribution channels with American Cannabis Company Inc., a full-service business-to-business consulting solutions provider, and seller of ancillary products to the cannabis industry.
ACC, which is based in Denver, said Thursday that its SoHum Living Soils potting mix and Dr. Marijane Root Probiotic, manufactured by Earth Alive Clean Technologies, will be available online for these major retailers.Products like SoHum can be used for growing anything — not just marijuana. The company’s pitch involves “living soil,” which is made up of a proprietary formula of natural and organic ingredients unrelated to cannabis, that helps plants growth without mixing — only water needed.Terry Buffalo, CEO of
American Cannabis Co., said in a news release that the company spent years perfecting its SoHum Living Soils potting mix blend and fine-tuning the messaging around the brand itself.”This fully amended, pH-buffered potting mix will continue to disrupt the agricultural markets as a ‘Just Add Water’ super soil that acts to eliminate the human error element from cannabis and non-cannabis crop cultivation,” he said.”ACC will continue to evaluate other online sales platform opportunities as they present themselves. We are committed to getting our products out in the market and into the hands of the cultivators who can truly benefit from these solutions that we provide.”
