Next up on Davis’ list of exploding growth companies is NXT LVL, a California cannabis manufacturing company dedicated to creating cannabis extractions, concentrates, topical products, and more. NXT LVL is poised to service the currently exploding medicinal cannabis industry with a branded line of personal care products that set the bar for quality and purity in a rapidly changing environment. NXT LVL’s ability to produce top quality products on a large scale and maintain consistent quality will be the distinctive factor in the success of the brand.

NXT LVL will take advantage of strategic brand partners to achieve consistent growth through such key activities as medical research, contracted manufacturing, and marketing. State and local regulatory changes adopted in January of 2018 have made it difficult for many established brands to compliantly operate in the Southern California area. NXT LVL is positioned to immediately bring several top-quality and renowned brand partners into production at their 5000 square foot facility in Desert Hot Springs, CA, which is currently scheduled for completion in Summer of 2019.

Davis brings 40 years of innovative problem-solving skills and forward-thinking initiatives to his engagement as CEO of NXT LVL, along with extensive familiarity with current market conditions that favor private investments in the cannabis as well as art and culture sector.

Where did the idea for NXT LVL come from?

The first idea I brought to life had been a company that I started named Reviv3 Procare. Seeing the problem of hair loss and thinning in men and women for so many years and coming up with the solution that worked. After working for many years with trained chemists using all natural ingredients that I had clinically tested with results that came back to increase hair strength by 300% With that i brought it to market and is currently selling in global markets.

With being a fitness and health finnatic experiencing the benefits of CBD and whole plant cannabis, the vitamins, minerals and cannabinoids that allow the body to recover faster and naturally I’m on a mission to bring the healthiest, all natural, CBD and Cannabis to the market starting the company NXT LVL. Where we manufacture and distribute the highest level products available.
