Kush Bottles Inc (OTCMKTS:KSHB) is an interesting play in the cannabis patch. The company has the financials in place to present to the market a compelling story for momentum investors. But shares haven’t responded very well since its massive rip higher from August to October of last year, a period that saw nearly 300% in gains in just about 60 days. Since then, it has been a slow grind back lower. This is despite a simple profile that includes major top-line growth and an extremely strong balance sheet.
One thing we have seen of late is a company that is trying to expand and put its cash to use. For example, the company recently announced that it has begun to add personnel and resources to build the company’s presence in the state of Oregon. In addition, Kush Bottles has expanded its Oregon product line and now has more than 100 products approved for sale by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission
Kush Bottles Inc (OTCMKTS:KSHB) bills itself as a company that markets and sells packaging products and solutions for the medical and recreational cannabis industries in the United States.
It offers pop top bottles; child resistant exit, paper exit, and foil barrier bags; tubes; and polystyrene, polypropylene, or silicone containers to urban farmers, greenhouse growers, and medical and recreational cannabis dispensaries.

As noted above, the company is making a real effort to broaden its Oregon footprint. Kush Bottles CEO Nick Kovacevich commented: “Oregon is one of our most important markets, and I am pleased to be adding personnel and products that will enable us to provide better service and a wider range of merchandise to this vital region. Our goal is to become the leading brand in the state by offering a comprehensive selection of OLCC approved products, exemplary customer service, and customizable options that make us the clear choice for marijuana packaging and supplies.”
In an interesting additional note, the company has also issued a statement regarding the state of the marijuana industry landscape: “The cannabis industry continues to grow and evolve at a rapid pace,” said Nick Kovacevich, CEO of Kush Bottles. “In November, four more states approved recreational adult-use cannabis, with an additional four states approving cannabis for medical use. This now brings state legalized cannabis to more than 50% of the country. Although cannabis has yet to be legalized federally, it’s worth noting that the Department of Justice is prohibited from interfering with businesses or individuals that are complying with medical marijuana state laws.”
This statement reflects a growing unease among cannabis patch players with how the Trump administration may be working toward a process of federally interfering with the legalization wave over recent quarters and years.
