“We are pleased to be able to offer our flagship O.pen brand to consumers in British Columbia,” said SLANG President & CEO Chris Driessen. “Vape carts have been one of the fastest growing categories in cannabis over the past several years. We are excited that Canada is now coming online where we expect to demonstrate brand excellence as we have done in market after market in the U.S.”
O.penVAPE is considered to be the #2 best-selling cannabis brand of all time in the United States by analytics firm BDSA since it began tracking legal sales in 2014.
SLANG-branded products are manufactured and distributed in the Canadian market by its investee company, Agripharm Corp. (“Agripharm”). Agripharm was one of the first licensed cannabis producers in Canada, in operation since 2014, and in 2015 became the first in the country to make use of supercritical CO2 extraction methods. SLANG looks forward to bringing more products to the Canadian market with Agripharm, including new live resin products similar to those recently launched successfully by the Company in Colorado.
