We are issuing an update directly to your email address - If it didn't arrive - please email me at


2020 Update!

I wanted to send along an update that was distributed to previous successful crowdfunding investors:

I wanted to give you a heads up – we are projecting that we will be able to start receiving cash into client accounts in the March timeframe. Our first revenue stream will be the deposit and transfer of cannabis cash. We will be charging fees for deposit and transfer.

This will mark the initiation of revenues from the Cannabis ecosystem that you invested in.

We are currently designing the “Canncoin” as a revenue sharing token that will get a revenue share from the fees we will be charging on the platform.

This coin will likely be on the ethereum network, so you should all have a wallet set up that can receive the coin. We will be registering the coin with the SEC – so this might take a little while, but you should think of the coin as an investment, as it will be the mechanism by which you will receive dividends, as our ecosystem builds in revenue.

The other component of your investment is the shares you purchased in Geopulse Exploration, Inc (“Cannco”). Geopulse is a public company, (ticker: GPLS). Some of you have mentioned the desire for more updates, we regularly publish press releases to the market – so you should set up a google alert for our stock. We have to be careful regarding our disclosures as some of our work and developments is proprietary, and we don’t want to disclose too much of our strategy to our competitors – who are watching our every move.

 We have just begun an auditing process for the Company to become fully reporting with the SEC. This step will give us a broader audience within the public markets and that will help the shares move higher.

The “Equity” component of your investment has risen 100% in recent months, and I am confident that as we ramp revenues the shares will respond even more. I have recently done an analysis of the Cannabis coins that launched in the market around the time you invested in Cannco and I am pleased to report that we are currently the highest valued enterprise in the space – most of the cannabis coins are down 90% from their highs. Many of the competing companies have gotten mired in SEC investigations and other issues and have run out of cash, and we are on the cusp of launching our ecosystem – this should be a good year.

We will be publishing press releases regarding developments under Geopulse Explorations Inc. first because it is a regulatory requirement. As always I am available at if you have any questions or requests.

If you want to have a chat with me directly about a potential investment or anything else, just drop me a line.

Best regards,




End of Summer Update

Dear Investors:

I wanted to provide an update – we have been active here in California working on developing our products for the Cannabis industry as well as working with tech developers to design and build the products we will be launching. Our stable coin has been approved for use by an FDIC insured bank - we think we will be the first offering this product and service to the cannabis industry. We will keep you posted as we make progress with these efforts.

 As far as our Token issuance from the Crowdfund - we will be tracking those here at the Company until they are issued. We are in the process of designing them and deciding how they will be registered and where they will trade. The Security Token space is nascent and developing - your tokens will be some of the first available in the STO space, but be patient so we can make the best token product for you.

We are also in the process of designing a stable-coin, that will be used as a means of exchange in the Cannabis industry. Your canncoin tokens will likely be receiving a dividend from the revenues generated from those fee-generating businesses.

Again – thanks for your interest and looking forward to providing more updates to you soon.



Closing of the Offering

Hello everyone!  It's been a busy couple months since the closing of our StartEngine campaign, and we wanted to Thank you all for participating in our offering – we appreciate your sharing in our vision for the benefits technologies can bring to this industry and we're excited to update you on our progress!

Our team recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Howard Marks – CEO of Start Engine, where we learned firsthand about his vision of the future, and you guys are it!  He is creating a community and ecosystem to solve the problems companies face in raising capital in the U.S., and you guys are the pioneers that are trailblazing a new way to support growth and entrepreneurship in the United States – thank you for helping bring that vision to reality... not just for CannCo, but for the entire Start Engine community in general.

Here at CannCo, we have been making great strides as well, building our team and preparing for our initial product launches and the beta test of our first stablecoin enabled B-to-B products. We will be sharing details soon.  We recently finalized our partnership with an FDIC-insured bank to act as custodian for our stablecoin, which will make us one of - if not the first - FDIC-insured digital payment system for cannabis in the world.  We are onboarding our first customers now and we can't wait to share more over the coming weeks as we roll the product out.   

We've also received a number of inquiries about when shares and tokens will be delivered.  As a reminder, your equity investment in CannCo entitled you to both shares in the company and Tokens, which have yet to be issued.  The shares were issued to you at the close of our offering, by book-entry conducted by Start Engine, who acts as the transfer agent for your investment.  Your Start Engine Account should now show the shares, and if you are having trouble seeing them or logging in to your account, please contact Start Engine's technical support and they will be happy to show you.  Regarding the tokens, we are still in the process of designing the securities that will ultimately become your Security Tokens. We, along with the rest of the crypto community, have been awaiting "No Action" guidance from the SEC, which, according to industry attorneys, has been forthcoming for over a year.  As soon as the guidance is issued, we will finalize our token structure and deliver those to you as well.  Until then, you have been issued a SAFE agreement, which is a contract guaranteeing you the tokens when they are issued.  We will update you with more detailed information as it becomes available.

We will be announcing developments on this channel as well as our social media channels and other means, so please follow our social channels and feel free to reach out to us directly as well.  Thank you all again and we look forward to sharing more exciting news soon!



In order to support the exponential increase in activity at the CannCo offices, we have made some exciting new hires!  

To help scale development and ensure our products are secure, reliable, and loved by our customers,  James Iacabucci, has taken the role of CannCo’s Chief Technology Officer.  Prior to CannCo, Mr. Iacabucci co-founded Xtiva Financial Systems, where he architected and helped build Xtiva into the leading incentive compensation tool for the broker-dealer and wealth management community.  Twenty years later, Xtiva now boasts over 90 enterprise customers, processing over $400 billion in production across more than 150,000 brokerage books.  As CTO of CannCo, James is leading the designing and development of CannCo’s blockchain empowered solutions, including a dedicated development team at Applicature, a world-class blockchain software firm with 80+ employees at offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Kiev.   

Additionally, Bret Johnson joined the CannCo team February of 2019, as VP of Business Development, where his roles include oversight of Brand Development, Marketing, Sales, and Customer Acquisition.  Bret brings 10+ years of industry experience and relationships to the CannCo team and is actively building CannCo’s exclusive community of merchant clients.  As a highly active and visible member of both the cannabis and blockchain communities, Bret is representing CannCo in public forums both at home and abroad. In 2018, Bret organized and produced the world renowned blockchain conference, ChainXChange, in Las Vegas, featuring Steve Wozniak, Bob Shapiro, Paul Krugman, Tom Lee, Michael Terpin, Alex Mashinsky and many other financial leaders and technology pioneers.

Exciting News!

Hello everyone!  Just a quick update to fill you in on some exciting developments on the CannCo front!  Our team has been extremely busy in the first quarter of this year, making big strides and reaching exciting milestones in the tech development, operations, marketing and investment arenas.  


On the investment front, we recently surpassed the $535,000 mark, which was the second milestone we had set for the Company during this RegCF campaign.  This means that everyone who has invested will be receiving an additional token bonus!  As of the time of this writing, we’ve reached $572k in total investment, which has been contributed by almost 700 of you (698, to be exact!), for which we’re grateful and humbled beyond words.  

We’re also excited to announce that we’re in the process of launching our Series A investment round, which will be structured as an SEC Regulation D, 506(c) offering, targeting $5M-$10M in investment, at a slightly increased valuation to the current raise. . 


On the product front, we’ve made a number of exciting developments, as well.  Initial sections of the B2B merchant marketplace prototype were completed last month and are currently being shown to CannCo’s beta test partners for feedback.  CannCo is also in the process of integrating with PrimeTrust, the FDIC-insured trust bank that will custody USD assets for CannCo’s ecosystem stablecoin.  We hope to onboard our initial beta partner clients into the CannCo-PrimeTrust token service in the coming weeks and will update you all again as soon as we do!

To test this payment infrastructure, CannCo has been actively engaging a select group of beta test partners, who represent some of the most innovative and influential businesses in the cannabis community.   To date, CannCo has received beta requests from over 50 companies and has approved six applicants so far, consisting of two cannabis brands, one distributor, one cultivator and two extraction lab.  We expect to approve 14-19 more participants in the coming weeks and will announce all of the beta partners once the selection process is complete.  


On the social front, CannCo recently attended the 31st Annual Roth Investment Banking Conference, in Laguna Beach, CA.  This year marked the first time Roth added a “cannabis day” to their annual conference, during which an exclusive group of cannabis industry leaders presented their companies to the 4000+ investment funds and family offices in attendance.  CannCo was honored to be included in this initial group of cannabis companies invited to attend a Roth Conference.

Also during the first quarter of 2019, CannCo also identified two pieces of pending California legislation to become actively involved in supporting.  The first bill, SB34, was introduced by CA Senator Wiener, and aims to ensure free access to medical cannabis for at risk patients.  CannCo is supporting SB34 by engaging it’s social community and the communities of CannCo’s strategic partners, totaling over 1 million cannabis supporters, asking them to contact their local senators or assembly members, and encourage them to support the measure.  More recently, CannCo reached out to the offices of Phil Ting and Kevin McCarty, in an effort to support AB953, a bill recently introduced by the two Assemblymembers.  AB953 would allow legally operating cannabis businesses to pay their state and local taxes using cash-backed “stablecoin” cryptoassets.  As proposed, AB953 would require any business seeking to pay taxes with cryptoassets, to use only specific USD-backed stablecoins, with underlying assets banked at an FDIC-insured banking institution.  CannCo’s ecosystem stablecoin, the CannCoin, will meet this definition exactly, as every single CannCoin in circulation will be backed by $1 USD on deposit in a custodial trust account at PrimeTrust, a federally insured financial institution.  To further assist the State in their efforts to be able to accept tax payments in cryptocurrency, CannCo would require that all payments to State and local authorities be executed through CannCo’s account management portal, which will be GDPR and FinCEN compliant and will require that all users be biometrically verified before every payment. This level of identity management will help ensure that the State is properly attributing tax payments. We are working diligently to become more involved with AB953 and ultimately the State's tax collection and revenue reconciliation processes and look forward to updating everyone on that front soon!

As always, follow us on social media and subscribe to our email updates for the latest news and developments!

SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
