Nitin Khanna’s Cura Cannabis Solutions aka Select
Nitin Khanna started investing recreational and medical cannabis in 2015 by way of Cura Cannabis Solutions. The company has since been growing rapidly and is one of the largest and best THC vape cartridge producers in the world.
The company has grown from a humble 15-person operation to a big workforce of over 125 staff members within just one year. Currently, Cura Cannabis Solutions has processing facilities in Nevada, California, and Oregon.
The company has announced a significant development that will expand its brand in Oregon, California, and Nevada. Nitin Khanna highlighted the medical and lifestyle benefits of CBD in this article for Medium. Clients who want the other advantages of using cannabis plant without necessarily being high learned a lot from this.
Cura Cannabis’ vape cartridges (under the label Select Oil) can be primarily CBD or THC. Here at DabConnection we like their THC cartridges. Select is known to be one of the most consistent brands delivering great quality oil. CBD cartridges can help relieve chronic pains, inflammations, anxiety and sleeping problems.
CBD can also be used to substitute opiate-based painkillers that are incredibly addictive. The company also has CBD and THC carts for all the times of the day. On the CBD end it includes peppermint for morning energy, grapefruit for afternoon revival, and lavender for evening relaxation.
Nitin Khanna’s Other Investments
Nitin Khanna recently invested $5 million in iSOS Inc. The software company provides services like smart attendance, inventory management, and cashless transactions among others. Nitin Khanna is also one of the Board of directors of VendScreen among others.
He advises many companies in the social, mobile, and cloud spaces.
Nitin Khanna’s no longer CEO of Cura Cannabis
Khanna stepped down as the CEO of Cura Cannabis in mid 2018 and was replaced by Cameron Forni. This happened after news that he allegedly had reached a civil agreement over unsubstantiated allegations. It should be noted that none of the claims are verified and Nitin has never been prosecuted criminally for anything. This means there is a high likelihood people are just after his money. If someone really wants to get justice they typically pursue a criminal claim and that was not pursued in this case.
Into the future…
Given Nitin’s incredible track record we hope he continues to be successful and one day returns to the cannabis space. Select Oil has consistently made excellent quality vape cartridges for both THC and CBD and it continues to grow.
