Building a premier, vertically-integrated cannabis company with a national presence, high-quality products, and strong brand recognition.
A passion for cannabis combined with a desire to produce premium, high-quality products led brothers, Ankur and Vishal Rungta, and long-time friend, Joel Ruggiero, to launch their multi-state business, C3 Industries (C3I). The company, comprised of cultivation and manufacturing facilities and retail locations, is dedicated to masterfully crafting, branding and selling premium cannabis products in legal medical and recreational markets.
C3I launched in spring 2018 with a state-of-the-art, 36,000-square-foot indoor cultivation facility in St. Johns, Oregon. Within six months of opening, C3I’s premium indoor flower brand, Cloud Cover Cannabis, became one of the top five indoor flower brands in Oregon.
With the passage of medical cannabis regulations in Michigan and the company’s demonstrated success in Oregon, C3 Industries expanded its operations into Michigan in Aug. 2019 with the first of 15 – 20 dispensaries, branded High Profile, planned throughout the state. In addition, a new, state-of-the-art, 35,000-square-foot Cloud Cover Cannabis cultivation and manufacturing center will open in Webberville, Michigan, in the fall of 2019.
C3I is currently in the process of licensing and constructing recreational cannabis facilities in Massachusetts, where the team has secured sites and/or approvals for a 37,000-square-foot cultivation and manufacturing facility as well as multiple dispensaries.
C3I is headquartered in Ann Arbor, home of the Rungta brothers’ alma mater, the University of Michigan.
