New Cannabis Company steals top talent and investment from California Wine Industry
Former Naked Wines Exec Team receive investment to launch direct-to-consumer cannabis

NAPA, Calif., Dec. 19, 2017 /CNW/ -- The Cannabis industry's footprint is extending significantly into California wine country this week as Big Moon Sky, California's first online-only dispensary providing curated cannabis products shipped direct to your home, announces big milestones in fundraising and gathering talent ahead of the recreational cannabis boom expected in 2018.
Leveraging over two decades of experience in the wine industry, Big Moon Sky's founders created a safe and secure marketplace to purchase highly curated, artisanal cannabis products for Californians.
Until now, the wine industry has focused heavily on how cannabis will impact wine sales as cannabis is viewed as an alternative to a glass of wine. The Bigmoonsky.com launch demonstrates that the cannabis industry is also going to poach top talent and investment dollars from wineries who share many of the same obstacles as cannabis producers.
"The two biggest headaches when buying marijuana and marijuana products are the overwhelming number of options for a beginner and the deeply alienating culture surrounding the industry," says Zack Crafton – one of the founders, "and Big Moon Sky seeks to solve both of these problems."
Crafton leans heavily on his experience as the Head of Operations for NakedWines.com - a business that grew to over $80M in its first five years and quickly became the country's largest 100% direct-to-consumer winery.
"The same barriers that plagued the wine industry for years will be obstacles for the burgeoning cannabis industry. We plan on removing those barriers for our customers."
While the company remains secretive around specific business plans, they are accepting limited investment proposals from qualified investors. Email [email protected] for more information.
