THAN THE SUM
OF OUR PARTS
THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT
The beauty of the cannabis plant is that its component parts, the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds, all work together synergistically to produce effects which are far greater than any one component can produce alone in isolation – this is the entourage effect.
This is reflected in our team and business at AltoVerde, which clearly sets us apart, combining unbeatable individual experience as trailblazers in cannabis genetics, cultivation, extraction, cosmetic and food formulation, processing, shipping, distribution as well as in clinical research. We know that by all working together, along with our partners, we can achieve far more than we could ever do alone.
This gives us the confidence that we will grow our company to be the leading, vertically integrated, horizontally diversified cannabis company in Europe.
