Diego Pellicer – The Premium Marijuana Brand
Being first is more important than being best. Thankfully, Diego Pellicer has designs on both.
Diego has already the #1 ranked result for the search term “premium marijuana” and has secured
multiple first rate locations in Colorado, Washington and Oregon.
A UNIQUE BUSINESS MODEL
Diego Pellicer Worldwide (Diego)) is a real estate and cannabis development company focused on developing Diego Pellicer as the world’s first “premium” marijuana brand. Diego is building and leasing custom designed facilities for the cultivation (growth) and retail of both high-quality cannabis and non-cannabis products in states where the sale of cannabis is currently legal.
The company’s initial focus is to secure and develop legally compliant real estate locations for the purposes of leasing them to state licensed companies in the cannabis industry. Select leases that Diego and its tenants enter into contain a pre-negotiated agreement for the acquisition of the tenant’s company at Diego’s sole discretion, once marijuana has been sufficiently legalized, or other conditions justify the acquisition. During the early stages of its business plan Diego does not grow or sell marijuana or marijuana infused products. The Company was founded in 2012 and began trading on the OTC in 2015.
In the fast growing and turbulent marijuana industry littered with small start-ups, Diego Pellicer Worldwide Inc. (Diego or DPWW) has established a unique business approach.

THE TIME IS RIGHT
“Legal marijuana is the fastest-growing Industry in the U.S.”
“The marijuana industry could be bigger than the NFL by 2020”
Luxury Locations throughout the U.S.
DPWW seeks to establish growth and retail locations in all states where such locations currently are, or will be legal. DPWW has so far secured six such locations in Colorado, Oregon and Washington, has begun the build-out in these locations with two of them already operationsl. Once operations commence, the tenants in these states may profit directly from cannabis sales. DPWW does not participate in these revenues. Current state laws and federal regulations do not allow interstate cannabis sales. For these reasons, DPWW does not grow process, sell or profit directly from cannabis until legalization on a Federal level.
