California: High Desert Town Bought by Cannabis Company

August 7, 2017


A Phoenix-based marijuana company, American Green Inc. (OTC:ERBB), has successfully negotiated the purchase of Nipton, California.

Located approximately 21 miles from Primm, Nevada, Nipton sits on the northern edge of the Mojave Desert and is poised to cultivate a new type of community in California’s high desert.


American Green, the second oldest and largest publicly traded marijuana business in the United States, plans on modernizing the 120-acre site, according to a recent press release.


"We are excited to lead the charge for a true ‘Green Rush,'” says David Gwyther, chairman and president of American Green. “The Cannabis Revolution that’s going on here in the US, has the power to completely revitalize communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century. This acquisition allows us to channel the myriad interests in cannabis production and consumption for an immediate positive impact to this community’s members and to cannabis consumers across the country. As industry leaders since 2009, we are thrilled to begin work on this first-of-its-kind eco-tourism experience for conscious cannabis consumers.”

An audacious gamble near the Nevada border, American Green purchased the tiny town for a stated $5 million with plans to turn Nipton into a hotspot for 420-tourism.


The company predicts Nipton will set a high standard for “energy efficiency and environmentally responsible tourism.” The cannabinoid-infused paradise will cater to inquisitive tourists seeking to take a leisurely tour of a cultivation facility, shop at a dispensary, relax in the town’s natural hot springs, or enjoy a ganja-friendly bed-and-breakfast.


On the outskirts of the Mojave Desert, Nipton is a timeworn mining community with a depleted population of roughly 20-sunbaked residents. Considered a ghost town by many, Nipton’s current business district has a general store and a five-room hotel — and that’s about it.


But not for much longer…


American Green’s high desert marijuana production facility/resort will initially focus on producing CBD infused water drawn directly from a nearby aquifer. Anticipated by the company to grow exponentially, American Green plans on providing a variety of commercial and recreational attractions once fully operational.

Per the company press release, visitors to the town of Nipton will enjoy, “CBD and mineral baths, cannabis-product retail outposts, artists-in-residence programs, culinary events, and Bed-and-Breakfast lodging to complete the charming small town experience. Company officials hope that this project will help to catalyze job creation and development within the town and surrounding communities, making Nipton a model for the cannabis industry’s role in stimulating and accelerating the rebuilding of struggling small town economies throughout the US where cannabis products have been legalized.”


Caveat: A publicly traded cannabis stock with seemingly questionable assets, Alan Brochstein of New Cannabis Ventures points out the company has just $191,000 in available cash on hand and the negative equity of $6.67 million.

About Monterey Bud: Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
