Innovating in the Cannabis Market

by RaeAnne Marsh

Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Carefree, Ariz., Tech-Holdings is an innovator in the hemp and cannabis industries, and has developed and patented a proprietary, fast-acting delivery system technology that allows for the products to act within seconds, not minutes. The company owns a portfolio of national brands in these industries and is a leading manufacturer of hemp-derived cannabidiol all-natural beauty and wellness products.

“The advice we received was to build the business with a sustainable approach to supporting legislative change and social equity,” relates founder and CEO Steven L. Trenk. “We focused on developing brands and products that would provide meaningful health, wellness and beauty products for both therapeutic and psychological benefits that could appeal to both the medical and adult use cannabis markets.”

Among the biggest challenges he found in starting and growing his company were protecting its propriety technology; finding reliable, licensed partners for its THC products; and identifying distribution partners for its CBD products. Trenk shares, “We met these challenges by assembling a world-class technology team — which included one of our principles, Tony Alfiere, the inventor of the technology, as well as a talented and experienced cannabis PHD chemist to work with our team to prepare the supporting documentation and responses to the patent process, as well as an experienced and knowledgeable patent attorney. The THC/CBD we are currently negotiating with has a multistate THC operator with licenses in multiple legal states and which has a very aggressive plan for building THC brands and national distribution channels for CBD products.”

Tech-Holdings currently offers The Gold Q, Quigley’s and 420 AntiDōs.

Regarding Tech-Holdings’ recent product release of 420 AntiDōs, which helps control the psychoactive effects of cannabis, Trenk says, “We believe in the safe and responsible use of cannabis for its medical benefits, as well as its abundant health and wellness properties. However, the nature of the plant makes the duration of its effects unpredictable. 420 AntiDōs empowers the consumer to end their experience at will and at their own convenience.”

The company has a strong commitment to social consciousness and allocates a percentage of earnings from all of the company’s brands to support industry activism and philanthropic organizations.
