[dropcap class=”kp-dropcap”]H[/dropcap]ightimes Holding Corp. received a ticker symbol and approval to list publicly from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), according to a Feb. 20 press release. Continuing an active legacy—since 1974—through bold journalism, events and branding, High Times continues to be a leader for cannabis and cannabis-adjacent companies around the world.
The approval from FINRA represents the last major hurdle in the company’s effort to list in the public markets.
“This is a big step for the company and the High Times brand. The listing of the company’s stock will give us a trading currency that will assist us in furthering our acquisitional goals. There is no better time to roll out this next evolution as we enter the cannabis retail space,” stated Adam Levin, Executive Chairman of Hightimes Holding Corp. “With the lessons we’ve learned from other operator’s mistakes, great management, and the current state of the industry, now is the time for High Times to thrive!“

Stormy Simon took upon the role of CEO in January, and has been instrumental in the company’s new direction. Her years with Overstock.com paved the way for her latest projects with High Times. “This feels just like my early days in ecommerce—except in this case we already have an audience, and we’re dealing with the most well-known brand in cannabis,” Stormy Simon, the brand’s Chief Executive Officer, stated. “My history in ecommerce should help the company as we develop both our retail business as well as our direct to consumer delivery options in markets across the globe.”
High Times’ foray into the public markets marks its latest expansion into new territory.
