The legal cannabis business is now a multi billion dollar machine. Since the legalization of cannabis in many US states, businesses have popped up to take advantage of interest and demand.

Domain sales based around cannabis have also been rife with names such as Kush.com selling for $500,000, and Extract.com selling for a reported $300,000.

Cannabis Delivery Company Amuse Launches on Amuse.com
Amuse’s homepage

It seems like generic domains are being used within the cannabis industry, too. Enter Amuse, “an ecommerce cannabis delivery service reinventing the way customers order and consume cannabis,” according to their LinkedIn page.

I mentioned Amuse’s domain, Amuse.com in a blog post earlier in the year but not much was happening with the domain. Now, though, Amuse.com looks to be up and running, ready for business.

I managed to get a little bit of detail from one of the founders of Amuse about the domain. According to them, they acquired the domain Amuse.com in January 2020 for an undisclosed fee. This was an outright domain purchase, which the founders sourced on their own (without the use of a buyer broker).

Before Amuse acquired the domain, it held a for sale notice, so it should have been fairly easy to get in touch directly with the owner.

As a brand name for the cannabis industry, I love Amuse. A cute, fun, accessible name. Coupling the brand name with the acquisition of the exact match Amuse.com gives the brand some added clout that will be vital in competing in the crowded cannabis industry.

Don’t get me wrong, Amuse.com is a fantastic name. But, too close to Abuse.com when you’re fighting for survival in a highly regulated industry.

Top 8 Domains Owned by Branded Holding Group

Branded Holding Group is a company that you may have come across if you've ever done any research into two-letter, or one-word .COM's. Founded by Roland Chemtob, Branded Holding Group is notable for owning some of the best names on the planet. The group looks to have sold some domains including Chief.com and possibly RG.com and Wonder.com, but they still own a vast number of premium names.

Here is my pick for the best names listed as owned by Branded Holding Group.

Leo Radvinsky – Another Venture Capitalist That Loves Domains, Namely Leo.com and LR.com

In the past, I've featured Paul Graham and Jason Calacanis on this blog. Two famous venture capitalists who recognize the part that domain names play in the success of a startup.

Jason has even acquired his fair share of top domain names. After selling 20.com a couple of years ago, Jason still owns and operates Inside.com - a popular curated newsletter service.

Today, I came across another venture capitalist who owns a couple of incredible domains - Leo Radvinsky.
