Who are we

 

Desert Cannalytix is building a state-of-the-art testing lab in Las Vegas that will ensure safety within the CBD/Hemp market. The operation of this lab will facilitate high caliber products free from harmful substances and contaminants for its customers that can furthermore be sold with accurate labels and descriptions to its consumers.

We saw the need for accurate and reliable testing in Nevada's emergent cannabis industry and we are responding with a technologically driven facility backed by the most advanced tools, sophisticated software, and the most devoted experts.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Cannabis and CBD testing is a $2 billion market in the U.S. estimated to further grow by over 10.4% CAGR by 2027.
  • Focus on Nevada ($500M market) where there is high demand for transparent cannabis and hemp testing testing.
  • The only testing laboratory in Las Vegas dedicated strictly to serving the CBD/ Hemp industry.
  • CEO/founder Malorie La Fuente has extensive background and experience in pharmacological analytics. In addition, she has comprehensive familiarity with the strict standards and applications to operate an efficient and quality scientific testing laboratory.
  • Proprietary Desert Cannalytix tracking application allows for transparency in the testing process in addition to streamlining lab operations and workflows.
  • Operate a technologically advanced laboratory that will be powered by the use of robotics and automation.
  • Aims to set the benchmark for analytical precision and accuracy for Cannabis and CBD lab testing in Nevada and the U.S
  • Because compliance and safety are at the heart of the cannabis industry's success, well operated testing labs are the most necessary and secure segment. Regulations cannot be followed without a reliable source for testing products.

 

 

While a relatively new sector in the growing U.S. cannabis industry, the cannabis testing lab segment has been marred with issues that are stunting its potential:

  • There is currently no laboratory strictly dedicated to CBD and Hemp testing in Las Vegas.
  • The ratio of cultivators and manufacturers to testing labs is disproportionate causing a bottleneck like effect for getting products on the market.

 

 

Correcting the vague laboratory testing and quality assurance standards for cannabis in the state and establishing a CBD/Hemp testing facility would require an aggressive strategy that would allow us to set these standards ourselves.

THE DESERT CANNALYTIX APP

Currently in development through the Desert Cannalytix app the users will be able to make payments, view lab reports/certificates pdf, view the status of a sample.

Our tech will streamline the lab-testing process by 
using barcode technology to track every step.

 

  • We started developing an innovative results tracking platform that utilizes a barcode technology to track processes. This app is designed to be transparent to enable better and more reliable monitoring. More features are planned to be added during development.
  • We have secured partnerships with technology and tools providers for the equipment necessary to run an effective CBD/hemp laboratory. So far we have two of the most trusted analytical equipment providers, Perkin Elmer and PathogenDX on board as vendors.
  • We are currently working on a lab prototype and are planning to work with company Merj Architecture, which specializes in the cannabis industry.
  • The company is also beefing up the team with the potential hiring of lab consultants to assist in the initial setup and ensure laboratory accreditation.
  • During operations, additional lab technicians and a courier will be hired to transport specimens from our customer facilities to our lab.
  • The Desert Cannalytix team is currently seeking standard local and government licensure required to start a CBD/Hemp lab.
  • Additional accreditation from relevant agencies, including an ILAC certification, will be sought upon operation.
 

CBD testing involves sending a sample to a
specialist analytical laboratory that has the expertise
and equipment to test CBD products.

 

 

  • To start, we have strategically set our focus on Nevada, where hundreds of millions worth of cannabis and CBD are sold each year.
  • Being the only lab in Las Vegas dedicated strictly to service CBD/Hemp market will allow Desert Cannalytix to focus on a high-growth market segment in the state.
  • We recognize our room for growth. Our tools and technology will enable our business model to scale beyond state borders and eventually tap into the billion-dollar industry across the country.

DEMAND

In Nevada, there is a great demand for accurate and reliable cannabis testing due to the cases of “lab-shopping” and fraudulent activities that have marred the local industry in recent years

The lack of standardized laboratory testing gives us a unique opportunity even as a new entrant to lead the way in the sector and set the standard, not only in the state, but in the entire U.S.

CUSTOMERS

The company will transact mostly with qualified, licensed and Desert Cannalytix vetted cannabis establishments such as:

 

 
  • We are the ONLY lab in Las Vegas strictly dedicated to serving the CBD/Hemp market.
  • This gives us a much larger market to penetrate as the number of cannabis testing companies in the state of Nevada primarily deal more with cannabis for local distributors and manufacturers.
  • Recent scandals about results tampering, manipulation and lab-hopping, have led to the closures and suspensions of some of these labs.
  • Being led by an industry expert with over a decade in pharmaceutical data analysis as well as other lab testing sciences and technologies immediately places the startup in a comfortable position among competitors.
  • We have begun new service offerings, partnerships, and geographic expansion to increase their market share and customer base.
  • Our proprietary app also sets us apart from competition who depend on third party platforms for results tracking and other digital services. There is an opportunity to overtake these platforms as most of them don’t have a physical lab.

 

SCALABILITY

  • The company plans to open up services to different sample types and expand operations to other states.
  • Amongst current advisory board members, we have a couple in key states awaiting recreational legalization of cannabis. Once legalization occurs, Desert Cannalytix will have the connections to expand to locations such as New York City and Memphis, Tennessee.
  • Would start expansion by providing compliance testing for booming segments such as organic/eco-friendly products, plant-based products.
  • The Desert Cannalytix app will also be licensed to other laboratory customers in the same industry.

 

 

Desert Cannalytix is set to earn profit by providing services through its testing laboratory, the proprietary CRM App, and delivering required metrics & analytics.

By offering a full set of services, the company 
corners a wider earning opportunity.

FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS

In the first year of operations, Desert Cannalytix is looking into a profit of 5.24% with a conservative projected revenue of $550,000 and net profit of $28,842. By the third year, after securing a significant share of the local market, we are eyeing $3,093,750 in revenue and net profit of $706,303 (22.80%). After gaining enough footing on the fifth year, we expect to generate $20,418,750 in revenue with a net profit of $6,280,808 (30.80%). As we increase revenue year by year, we will allot a significant portion in growing our operations to cater to an expanding clientele and sustain business growth.

Hi Robert, We appreciate your interest! 
To answer your question, no, we are not operational at this time, but that's actually what this funding round is for. We have prepared and negotiated the necessary regulatory requirements and contractual agreements to move forward.

The allocation of the use of proceeds among the categories of anticipated expenditures represents management’s best estimates based on the current status of the Company’s proposed operations, plans, investment objectives, capital requirements, and financial conditions. Future events, including changes in economic or competitive conditions of our business plan or the completion of less than the total Offering, may cause the Company to modify the above-described allocation of proceeds. The Company’s use of proceeds may vary significantly in the event any of the Company’s assumptions prove inaccurate. We will retain broad discretion in the allocation of the net proceeds from this Offering, reserve the right to change the allocation of net proceeds from the Offering as unanticipated events or opportunities arise and could utilize the proceeds in ways that do not necessarily improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our Common Stock. Additionally, the Company may from time to time need to raise more capital to address future needs that we may not have anticipated as of the date of this Offering Circular.
Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This offering contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. We caution investors that any forward-looking statements presented in this offering, or which management may make orally or in writing from time to time, are based on the Company’s beliefs and assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company.
