Former Grassroots Cannabis Co-Founder Rejoins Cannabis Industry As CEO of Big Plan Holdings

CHICAGO–Joshua Joseph, one of the former Co-Founders of Grassroots Cannabis – which sold to Curaleaf for $850 million in July 2020 – has officially returned to the cannabis industry. Joseph, along with a partner, recently entered the Maine cannabis market with an investment made to Silver Therapeutics of Maine which includes three dispensaries and one grow and processing facility. They anticipate the openings of the three dispensaries in 2021 and are on the search for a state allowed fourth dispensary location.
Joseph will bring his expertise to the Company while sitting on the Company’s Board, assisting in roll-up strategies, sourcing tuck-in acquisitions, and capital raising across the country.

While spending the last year remaining focused on Frontline Real Estate Partners which he is the majority shareholder in, while also solidifying his Nashville-based family office, Big Plan Holdings, Joseph has spent considerable time investing in and advising multiple cannabis and CBD companies nationwide, including a women-owned luxury beauty and lifestyle subscription box, 3rd Eye Hi.

“After taking some time to grow our family company, it is incredibly exciting to be returning to the cannabis industry. We are thrilled to become part of the growing cannabis communities in Maine and are looking forward to additional strategic market entry points,” Big Plan Holdings’ Founder, Joshua Joseph, said. “Our goal is to find our next new location as soon as possible.”

To further capitalize on the rapidly growing cannabis industry, a wholly owned subsidiary of Big Plan Holdings acquired a single tenant property located in Macomb, Illinois that features a long-term lease with Windy City Cannabis. Joseph also invested $6.5 million in the multi-state operating (MSO) cannabis company, Ascend Wellness Holdings.

In a press release issued today,
Joseph (pictured) looks forward to continuing to expand his work within the cannabis and CBD industries across the nation.
