Sounds good bubble man. Context is very important... I hate fake news also.
I NEVER have and NEVER will listen to FAKE NEWS!
Hey, did you listen to the Zoom call? Very interesting products. Even offered to give shareholders a box of Bill Walton chocolate bars.
How would a stock buyback work? Never been a part of anything like that before.
Heard something about stock buyback.
No, I didn't catch it. I'm going to reach out to our investor relations team and see if they have a recording. I'll post it here if I find it.
Smart investors are not falling for BS fairytales!
I called around to some GrowGeneration stores this morning and they don't have the product on the shelves yet. Something to do with packaging issues to make it legal to sell retail in the US.
However, from speaking with some of my industry contacts, it sounds like the Commercial Sales Division at GrowGeneration has already started peddling their products on a commercial level to farmers and cultivators. That's probably where the bulk of their reported sales have come from so far.
I would advise caution to you when considering any sales estimates from company's in the cannabis space. I spent 3 years working as a Marketing Executive in that industry and things always move slower than anticipated. Ie. If a product is expected to hit shelves in June it won't hit shelves until September.
Also, "Harvest Season" ends in October, so if their mycology kits don't hit GrowGeneration shelves by then it will dramatically impact their sales forecasts. Won't be a deal breaker, but the seasonabl reduction in foot traffic will make their sales come in well below estimates. And based on what I'm hearing from the stores, it is looking increasingly unlikely this product will hit shelves in time.
It was a sinking ship for a long time and GrowLife, the Cannabis company is dead and buried. But they took the little capital they had left in January and purchased Bridgestone Mushrooms. That's who they are now, Bridgestone Mushrooms, not GrowLife.
Since then they have been focusing on a strategy to sell mycology kits in retail stores. They've partnered with GrowGeneration to do this, but I made some calls and the product still hasn't hit shelves. The folks at the GrowGeneration stores are expecting this to arrive in September or October. The stores I talked to about it are extremely excited to start selling these mycology products as there is a huge demand for it with their customers.
I've heard rumblings of some packaging issues to be able to legally sell the products on a retail level in Oregon and I'm assuming this stretches to other states. This is the biggest stumbling block. If they can get past it, this stock has massive upside potential.
They are also using GrowGeneration's commercial sales division to promote their Mushroom products to farms and cultivators. The partnership with GrowGeneration is massive as it gives them national exposure at both a retail and commercial level.
My plan is to continue to call their stores and once the product officially hits the shelf I'll be sizing up my investment considerably. They will have positioned themselves as "America's Mushroom Company" in a mushroom industry that is poised to be the next boom.
You do what you want ihorchu and sounds like you were burned by these guys in the past. Hopefully you can catch this at the bottom and ride it to the top to recover what you lost.
Acquisition already happened and SS have not changed so it will be only a symbol change later on is my understanding and our shares will be continued to be retained by us. The fact that this already completed acquisition without major change in SS (still tiny at 40M) and that this company will be profitable by end of this year is amazing in OTC world so this wont be trading in subpenny for long. Blast off anytime now
stockrider, in the PR they mentioned: "before the end of 2023, the Company plans to drop the GrowLife name and stock symbol to become Bridgetown with a new stock symbol". Will our shares in PHOT automatically change to the new stock symbol or will they fold PHOT and we would be SOL? I've never gone through a stock symbol name change before and want to know that I'm protected.
Read the PR closely, company is already on its way to make $3M this year (not 2024). With a conservative 5x multiplier for valuation which is still low for this industry it puts valuation at $15M. With 40M in OS that puts fair pps valuation at $0.35-$0.40. Current market cap of $160K is a big joke, shorts going to be toasted on this real soon when they get squeezed and chase this in multi pennies to cover their naked short positions. This gem is yet to be discovered by whales, watch how fast pps moves when they do with this tiny OS
stockrider, what do you think the stock price will go to if they post annual sales over a million for 2023? They will probably do 3million+ in 2024 and ramp up to 10million in 2025 at 50% margins, based on their recent reporting. I think they are strategically poised to meet or exceed those numbers in their reported timelines.
Read this MarketScreener article a few days ago and it says that "before the end of 2023, the Company plans to drop the GrowLife name and stock symbol to become Bridgetown with a new stock symbol that reflects its focus on the mushroom industry and enter 2024 with a public profile that represents our evolving brand."
What will this mean for PHOT shareholders? Will they receive shares under the new stock symbol or will we be just SOL?
Dream on, this has been shorted to $100K market cap now, watch this explode to 0.05-0.10 quickly with current tiny OS of 40M. Even with pps at 0.10 market cap will be still tiny at only $4M
Nobody wants a perpetually non-performing POS!

Game Changing Growth
GrowLife is growing again but, as always, we want it faster. We must continuously remind ourselves that we are building an industry and not just a company. I have been waiting to complete our first half of the year to blog as a follow up on the Feb 24th blog posting of 2017 GrowLife Roadmap. However, I cannot continue to watch the market, and especially our sector, decline without speaking up. The bottom line is that our industry is being reshaped by a political tug of war between the Federal Administration and 30 States that have legalized Cannabis. These are growing pains.
In this posting I will address some key questions that have been floating around several bulletin boards about the Company:
- Where is GrowLife headed?
- What is the Company’s vision? Why?
- Why did GrowLife form an advisory board?
- When will we have a shareholder meeting?
- How can shareholders stay best informed?
