Sativa Investments (NEX: SATI) CEO Geremy Thomas joins DirectorsTalk to discuss the opening of its flagship store. Geremy explains why they have chosen Bath for its first store, what products consumers will be able to purchase and how this store will differ from other retailers.

Sativa invests in well-placed ventures within the dynamic regulatory environment of the Medicinal Cannabis sector. The Company’s pan-European, end-to-end, seed-to-consumer investment strategy focuses on the production, testing and compliance, research and development, including pharmacology, commercialisation and sales and marketing of Medicinal Cannabis in jurisdictions where it is regulatorily permitted. Sativa has committed to an independent legal review prior to each investment to verify compliance with the prevailing regulatory environment.
