A few Thoughts about the Industry and our Business Model
We believe the future of the cannabis business is in what we call the “Weedery” model, remarkably similar to the model to that of the century-old wineries that surround us at Estrella Ranch. This model is why we coined the phrase “Estate Grown Weedery™”. We envision thousands of small farms around the country sharing their craft one-on-one with the consumer. The growers will share their passion for the cannabis plant with visitors, explaining the different profiles and the effect of consuming a particular strain. The farmer will establish operations so they can sell directly to the consumer via “weed clubs” after harvest. We will see everything from the small to the elaborate cannabis weddings and events. We envision cannabis eco-tourism, weed and wine tours, and a most pleasant “bud and breakfast” experience.
We see research that will improve lives and changes in the banking system laws essential to help distributors and retailers and support consumers’ safety. We expect federal legalization and interstate commerce to be established so the entire country can benefit from the latest innovations and advances in the sector. But most importantly, we see the future directly on course with our vision, and our goal is to be well-positioned when it happens.
Bill Hodson, CEO of LiveWire Ergogenics, states, “2021 has been an exciting and action-packed year for our company. We maneuvered through a complex and costly cannabis application process, overcoming all legal and environmental hurdles that make California special while establishing the largest cannabis market in the country. We have met all requirements, finalized all required buildouts and improvements for the initial cultivation area of our Estate Grown Weedery™ at our Estrella Ranch in Paso Robles, California.
Our affiliate company, Estrella River Farms, located on Estrella Ranch, has delivered the first harvest to our processing partner’s facility to integrate further the white-label and private label “Estrella Weedery” for entry into retail distribution, creating a new channel for the sale of our value-added products. We expect to recognize increased revenue based on the relationship to show in Q2 of 2022. These additional steps will establish and increase the value of the Estrella brand and, in combination with our tightly controlled low overhead, will give us a competitive edge and increase revenue and net profits.

We can now enhance the value of the harvest and react dynamically to price fluctuations in the industry. To take advantage of the exceptional quality of sun-grown cannabis and generate higher revenue, ERF partnered with Phire Labs to convert its biomass into connoisseur-craft extract products manufactured and distributed by Phire that will command a higher value. This will allow ERF to utilize Phire’s exceptional manufacturing process and distribution channels to process the harvest into easily consumable retail products. In addition to using ERF’s raw materials to produce its connoisseur-craft extracts, Phire will also manufacture ERF’s private label product featuring Estate Grown Weedery™ for distribution through its established distribution channels.
