Jersey City, New Jersey-based Pangaea Health and Wellness is granted $100,000 to Cognitive Harmony Technologies Accelerator, an accelerator program by cannabis business veterans, in order to put five social equity cannabis entrepreneurs seeking a cannabis license through its program, according to a NJ Cannabis Insider announcement. The winners will be selected by the accelerator, NJ Cannabis Insider and NJ State Veterans Chamber of Commerce, according to the announcement on NJ.com. The goal is for applicants who have been negatively affected by the War-on-Drugs to go through the mentorship program and have a better shot at a license, according to the announcement. Pangaea Health is also providing 20,000 square feet to host the incubator. Applications are due July 19.
