Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) is making a highly explosive move up on accelerating volume since reversing off $0.0795 lows. When a stock such as TRTC heats up Investors pay attention; TRTC has a long history of big moves running from $0.25 to highs near $1.50 back in early 2014 with the rest of the sector.
The big move on TRTC comes after the Company announced a definitive merger agreement under which Terra Tech will acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of Black Oak Gallery, DBA: Blum Oakland, an established, retail medical cannabis dispensary in Oakland, CA.
Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) is a vertically-integrated, cannabis-focused agriculture company that manufactures state-of-the-art Growhouse equipment that is now sold word-wide through its subsidiary GrowOpTechnology Ltd. Through its own growing facilities and its alliance with hydroponic farmers the Company sells its Edible Garden produce to supermarkets such as Demoulas and Shoprite supermarket in states such as New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.
TRTC is also a great place to be when pot stocks heat up considering its performance the last time that happened; recent catalysts for another run on pot stocks include DEA being told by California judge to stop interfering with dispensaries, 6,000 non-violent drug offenders released Nov 1st, New York opening medical MJ dispensaries January, Australia lifting ban on medical MJ. Another really big one is Canada’s new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who has been promising legalization immediately in Canada.
We have been covering TRTC for years; the Company was initially incorporated as Private Secretary, Inc. on July 22, 2008 in the State of Nevada. The Company planned to develop a software program that would allow for automatic call processing through VoIP technology. On January 27, 2012, the Company filed an amendment to its Articles of Incorporation changing its name to Terra Tech Corp and a new pot stock was born.
The Company is run by Derek Peterson a former Vice President at Morgan Stanley. He left Wall Street because he saw a huge opportunity in medical marijuana. His vision is setting up growing facilities in various states to grow herbs such as basil and thyme with plans to switch to Marijuana production as state laws permit.

TRTC acquisition of Blum Oakland is a game changer for the Company; Blum Oakland, which holds over 42,000 registered patients, has been operating since November 2012 and services close to 1,000 patients each day. The acquisition includes Blum’s fully integrated supply chain, which consists of a sophisticated onsite cultivation facility, its portfolio of proprietary strains, as well as its high volume retail storefront. Trailing 12-month non-GAAP revenue for Blum Oakland is over $14 million, which tracks the revenue reported by Blum Oakland in its associated sales tax and marijuana tax reporting and payments.

The anticipated closing date for the merger is not later than March 31, 2016. Blum Oakland and all of its shareholders are obligated to close the merger by that date, while Terra Tech retains the option to cancel the merger through March 1, 2016, pending further due diligence.

He continued ”In addition to enhancing our cash-flow, this merger positions us to capitalize on the new regulatory landscape in California, which will change significantly with the implementation of the Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act in 2016.”
