The “Green Gold Rush”: The Opportunity to Invest is Now
Gone are the days of clipping coupons from weekly circulars. We are now in a gig economy where consumers crave the best deals now. From bargains on restaurants and travel to cars and furniture, there are deal sites for everything. But it didn’t start that way.
In 1997, Priceline took the world by storm with a site for finding the best travel deals. Since then, the company has revolutionized travel, with consumers now having a wide variety of options for locating the best prices, with sites like Priceline, Trivago, Expedia, and Hotels.com.
The stock market has rewarded travel deal aggregators with massive success.
In just the nine years since its IPO, Priceline (PCLN) has had a whopping 3,639% increase to reach a heavy hitting $2,067.99 in 2017. This year alone Priceline has offered a stellar 140% increase.
After its IPO in late 2016, Trivago (TRVG), went from a low of $10.88 to a high of $24.27—more than doubling early investors’ money.
Similarly, Expedia (EXPE) beat the market by a long stretch with a 152% increase, reaching a year-to-date high of $161. Those who bought Expedia at the outset of $46 have seen their money more than triple.
The gains across the board for these tech disruptors have been eye popping.
It’s obvious that consumers crave efficiency and access, and yes, the biggest bang for their buck, so it’s no surprise that sites designed to save people time and money are on the up and up, and are being adopted at a crazy rate.
Now stocks are up for new deals sites in a “budding” industry. After years of pent-up demand, the floodgates are opening and consumers and businesses are pouring in. The most notable is Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY), a Denver-based deals company currently growing like a weed.
Leafbuyer is the top resource for getting deals on medicinal and recreational leafy products, providing consumers, dispensaries, and accessory shops with the best options for the lowest prices.

Leafbuyer Technologies is not alone. Like the miners in the California gold rush in the 1840s, smart entrepreneurs are jumping in to stake their claim in this promising new industry. Dubbed as a “green gold rush,” the boom—estimated to reach $20 billion by 2021, according to Forbes—is quickly spawning numerous opportunities for growers, retailers, wholesalers, shippers, fertilizers, accessories, and edibles.
But Leafbuyer is different.
This company could very well be the best investment opportunity we’ve come across in years.
Praised as a “game-changer” by NBC, LBUY has become the definitive online resource for finding the best bud deals and specials. The company’s website, Leafbuyer.com, connects millions of consumers with dispensaries and suppliers all over the country.
Think about what Priceline.com did for the global travel industry, placing a world of travel deals at the consumers’ fingertips. That’s what Leafbuyer.com is doing to the industry, for consumers across the nation.
And investors are scrambling to take a “piece.” LBUY is currently being traded on the OTC U.S. stock exchange, making it among the top public-listed companies with proven growth available on the market.
Today, investors are kicking themselves for missing the ground-floor investments of big names of big tech stocks like Apple and Facebook.
In a few years, the fast-growing sale of legal grassy substances could leave many investors sadly reminiscing over the ground-floor companies that got away. Or, it could leave them basking in the rewards of the lucrative opportunities they took advantage of.
Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY) is on the verge of being recognized by “The Street” which could soon blast the company’s stock into the stratosphere!
In other words, smart investors may soon be embracing the ground-floor appeal of this new publicly traded company that’s being dubbed the “Priceline” of the budding industry.
Think about Groupon, a company that connects its subscribers with local merchants who offer a variety of deals. Well, during 2016, Groupon raked in a whopping $3.1 billion.
Groupon has done for the consumer coupon industry what Priceline.com has done for the global travel industry. It’s no small leap to assume that LBUY will soon be blowing away competition in this bud industry.
Let’s talk numbers. Leafbuyer.com has already grown into the industry’s largest deals network in the entire country, boasting 5 million users monthly. First launched in Colorado, LBUY is poised at the epicenter of the projected expansion of the green industry. It has already saved consumers over $5 million, with that number growing exponentially as the company expands rapidly into California, Florida, Nevada, Massachusetts, Arkansas, and North Dakota.
LBUY currently services over 250 of the 600 dispensaries in the Denver area, and based on its 1st quarter numbers, LeafBuyer.com is fast approaching a million dollar run rate. All that after targeting just one potential market.
The company is working with partners in each state, and plans to launch a nationwide marketing initiative in the coming months. With imminent expansion into 28 new markets, it will be plain to see how LBUY will duplicate its proven business model in fresh areas, turning it into one of the most influential players—and smoking any other potential resources.
LeafBuyer’s national network of deals and information already reaches millions of consumers every month.
Cayla Shortley, Director of Sales at LeafBuyer says: “We are excited to expand our platform to new and growing markets across the country. We are now beyond the tipping point. Our success in Colorado can be attributed to a customer-centric focus and intense grassroots marketing.”
“We have witnessed a strong demand for our online platform stemming from Colorado,” said Andre Leonard, Marketing Manager of Leafbuyer.com. “With the success we have had in the hub of the green gold rush, it was an easy decision that our next step would be to scale operations nationally to these new markets.”
Yes, we’re currently witnessing the first stage of the green gold rush!
The only question is…will you get in on the ground floor? Or will you wait until everybody knows that grassy stocks are a great investment?
There’s an old saying that goes, “when everybody knows it’s a good investment, it’s no longer a good investment.” Don’t be late to the game.
And that holds true now, more than ever. Smart investors know that timing is a critical factor when it comes to profit hunting. Everybody knows what they say about the early bird; he’s the one who gets the worm, or in this case, the bud.
Still not convinced? Consider the dot.com era in the ‘90s that turned Yahoo and eBay into leviathan successes.
Well, there’s another company that’s considered by far one of the most successful stories to come out of this boom: Amazon.
If you flip on any news station or check any financial site, you’ll know that Amazon is unstoppable this year. Jeff Bezos and company recently acquired WholeFoods for 13.7 billion, and they’re fast on their way to becoming a $1 trillion-dollar juggernaut.
But let’s break down the green opportunity. According to Forbes, recently sales in this industry grew by 30% to an astonishing $6.7 BILLION in 2016. They estimate North American sales are projected to exceed $20 billion by 2021. That’s an annual compounded growth rate of 25%. To put this in perspective, this growth rate is larger and faster than the dot-com era growth rate of 22%.
In other words, this represents one of the most exciting industries for investors that we have seen in more than a decade.
And if that’s not enough to grab your attention, why limit the opportunity to the U.S.? Canada’s recent recreational legalization promises to spark a brand new $22.6-billion industry. A new Deloitte study also suggests that the Canadian grass boom will easily eclipse the sale of beer, wine, and spirits…combined, thus refueling Canada’s lagging economy.
The November 2016 election in the United States was a turning point when we saw four more states voting in legalization, bringing the total number of recreational use states to eight.
Overall, there are 29 states along with the District of Columbia allowing legal use of medicinal product. This number could soon grow, with a number of state laws pending votes.
One of the biggest markets that will continue to have a huge impact on the industry is the state of California, which boasts the 6th largest economy in the world.
Billions and billions of dollars could potentially be made from sales in California alone. That, in conjunction with the passage of laws in states like Florida, means that more than half of the American population will have access to the green leaf industry.
Some smart entrepreneurs and lawmakers are pushing for green social clubs in Nevada, giving new opportunities to more than just bachelor parties looking to explore the Vegas Strip. It’s easy to assume that other states will follow Nevada’s lead, especially if the clubs offer states another stream of tax revenue from sales. What happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas.
Millions Americans will soon smartly start to rely on Leafbuyer.com to get connected to the best deals at dispensaries in their local areas. A variety of businesses using the company’s website are already thriving—and watching their sales increase exponentially.
A recent CBS News poll from 2017 shows that support for legalization is higher now than ever. It concluded that a whopping 61% of Americans agree with legalization. This is a 5% increase from last year, and the highest percentage that has ever been recorded in the poll.
The bottom line? A staggering 88% of Americans are openly supportive of this new industry. That’s almost 9 out of 10 adults!
Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational use, and while the naysayers said the initiative would never be a success, the numbers have proven them wrong, year after year. In just 10 months, the state saw one billion dollars in legal sales during 2016.
According to the Tax Foundation, nationwide legalization could generate up to $28 billion in additional tax revenues for federal, state, and local governments. Needless to say, this is a great reason for bureaucrats to lend their support in their respective states.
Analysts at Cowen and Co. estimate the budding industry could be worth $50 billion by 2026 if you include black market sales entering the legal market.
The fast-growing industry has helped many reluctant state legislators recognize the economic benefit and the tax opportunities that could reel in significant revenue for their states.
It’s simple logic. As more and more states legalize the product, more and more consumers will use Leafbuyer.com to find the best deals, and save “high” quality money. (OTC: LBUY)
Below you’ll see the market cap on some stocks dominating the green leaf market right now, and how they’ve performed in the past year. (Figures are as of March 17th, 2017)

AXIM Biotechnologies (NASDAQOTH: AXIM): $562 million, up 1,720%
Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CRBP): $450 million, up 431%
While many of these stocks look maxed out, LBUY is just starting to light up. And with the nationwide expansion of legalized products, Leafbuyer is perfectly poised to profit from an inevitable growth in revenue.
The boom is quickly going mainstream. Shares of LBUY could be ready to take off as more traders uncover what could be the first “green gold rush” in American stock market history!
