OUR STORY

Elevate Trust. Inspire Confidence.

Our goal is to elevate trust in cannabis and inspire confidence in the plant across consumers, patients, investors and entrepreneurs alike. 

This inspired confidence and why for cannabis is different for everyone. For most, it hits close to home, including our own Andrew Bowden, an investor first, and now CEO.

When Andrew Bowden’s mother was diagnosed with triple-negative stage 3 breast cancer in 2016, he began searching for something to help her eat and sleep through the pain from treatment. 

Thanks to the support of her family, her determination, and Item 9 Labs product, she survived three different, arduous routes of cancer treatment. 

Seeing the positive effects cannabis had on his mother’s battle with breast cancer, Bowden joined Item 9 Labs Corp. as a board member in 2018 and was appointed to CEO in 2019. His goal is to give the same opportunities to others who need help. 

“Cannabis is truly a medicine,” said Bowden. “This is what will help future cancer patients thrive and enjoy the rest of their lives. I want to see everyone live life to their fullest, pain free.” 

Since Bowden’s appointment to CEO, Item 9 Labs Corp. has seen nine consecutive quarters of revenue growth. And, his mother, Mary, is now five years cancer free.

DIRECTOR

“We had been looking at the cannabis space for a few years, trying to determine our best entrance that would mitigate the high risk. We knew that by partnering with a solid franchisor we wouldn’t have to go through the School of Hard Knocks and dug into cannabis franchises.

We found a few that were just selling a business plan, no long-term support, and then discovered Unity Rd. The team has a depth of history on both the retail and cultivation side with awards to back them up. We felt most comfortable with Unity Rd. versus other routes into this nascent industry.”
