Apothecarry Takes Top Prize at Arcview’s Los Angeles Winners Fund Pitch Competition


Receives $50,000 Prize for Luxury Cannabis Humidor and Storage System

LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2017 /Weed Wire/ — Apothecarry Brands, the maker of the luxury Apothecarry storage and humidor system designed to safely keep Cannabis at its freshest using state-of-the-art humidity controls won the $50,000 grand prize for best pitch at Arcview’s Los Angeles Winners Fund pitch competition. Primarily funded by The Arcview Group and managed by NeWay Capital, The Winners Fund offers innovative Cannabis startups the chance to win financial investments at each of Arcview’s Shark Tank-style investor pitch events. Apothecarry graduated from Canopy, Arcview’s partner accelerator program, before pitching at the Arcview Forum and receiving the Best Pitch Prize.

“Winning the Arcview pitch prize is meaningful on a lot of levels. As a black woman, I was warned a million times how hard entrepreneurship would be, especially in the Cannabis space. The mentorship and advice I received while participating in the Canopy accelerator program allowed me to prep my business for scale, drill down on the opportunity, and grow my brand. It hasn’t been easy, but to win that prize, voted on from the investors in attendance was an amazing validation – and knowing I am the first black woman to do so makes it that much more special,” said Whitney Beatty, CEO of Apothecarry Brands.

The Apothecarry Case is a sleek and sexy storage and humidor system designed to safely keep Cannabis at its freshest, most optimum quality while providing luxury tools for the discriminating connoisseur. The wooden case features a secure key and combination lock and includes:

*4 humidity controlled glass jars with re-writable labels
*4 food grade silicone dab jars
*1 rolling tray
*1 3-chamber grinder
*1 stainless steel dab stick
*A storage nook for lighters and papers
*And elastic straps to hold oil canisters upright and to hold pens, pipes, and vaporizers.

“Apothecarry is firmly focused on the rise of the upscale cannabis consumer, which has been one of the fastest growing demos in legalization. We believe this is the direction of the new cannabis industry to come, and we are excited to have a “pick & shovel” business in this space,” said Ms. Beatty.
