Casa Verde Capital, Snoop Dogg's Investment Firm, Raises $94.7M in New Funding

Casa Verde Capital has raised $94.7 million during its second round of investment funding, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing done by the firm done on December 21.

The investment firm was co-founded by Calvin Broadus, popularly known as Snoop Dogg, in 2015. The venture capital firm is based in West Hollywood, California, and it seeks to invest in the cannabis sector.

The second investment is more than double the size of the initial round of investment back in 2018 that raised $45 million. The firm is now worth at least $200 million.

“Cannabis has been deemed an essential business everywhere across the U.S. We had record sales in March, April and May, and the trend has continued. And now that we are getting into an environment where governments are going to be looking for additional sources of tax revenue, the potential urgency around cannabis legalization is going to be there, which is going to be massively positive for the industry,”

said Casa Verde Managing Director Karan Wadhera while speaking to TechCrunch back in July 2020.

The firm includes some of the industry’s well-known brands such as Eaze, Leaflink, Metrc, and Merry Jane, which is a digital publication.

9. Alone in Vegas
