Em­blem to sup­ply B.C., Saskatchewan with weed

Stockwatch Daily - - FRONT PAGE - Mr. Nick Dean re­ports

EM­BLEM CORP.’S wholly owned sub­sidiary, Em­blem Cannabis Corp., has re­ceived ap­proval to sup­ply Bri­tish Columbia and Saskatchewan with pre­mium cannabis prod­ucts un­der Em­blem’s adult-use brand, Symbl.

In B.C., Em­blem has been ap­proved to sup­ply cannabis to the B.C. Liquor Dis­tri­bu­tion Branch (BCLDB) — the sole, whole­sale dis­trib­u­tor of non-med­i­cal cannabis for the province that will op­er­ate stand-alone, pub­lic re­tail stores and pro­vide on-line sales. In Saskatchewan, Em­blem has been ap­proved by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gam­ing Au­thor­ity (SLGA) to sup­ply cannabis to the province’s pri­vate re­tail mar­ket. A cu­rated range of Symbl-branded dried flower strains and pre­mium cannabis oils are ex­pected to be avail­able in both prov­inces over the com­ing months. “B.C. and Saskatchewan are im­por­tant mar­kets for Em­blem’s con­tin­ued do­mes­tic growth plans and we look for­ward to work­ing with each province as a trusted part­ner to sup­ply con­sumers with high-qual­ity cannabis prod­ucts that will meet their needs now and into the fu­ture,” said Nick Dean, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Em­blem. “Em­blem is fo­cused on build­ing a busi­ness for the long-term through prod­uct in­no­va­tion, de­vel­op­ing strong brands and en­hanced dis­tri­bu­tion. With sup­ply ap­provals in place across four key prov­inces — which also in­cludes On­tario and Al­berta — we con­tinue to ex­pand Em­blem’s foot­print and open up ad­di­tional mar­kets for our brands and prod­ucts.” “Lever­ag­ing Em­blem’s ex­ist­ing strength in the med­i­cal mar­ket, we’re ex­cited to in­tro­duce con­sumers in B.C. and Saskatchewan of le­gal age to Symbl. Symbl was cre­ated to of­fer a thought­ful brand ex­pe­ri­ence for those seek­ing cannabis for recre­ational use that fits within a bal­anced life­style,” said Maria Guest, chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer, Em­blem. “Symbl is the first of sev­eral brands that Em­blem in­tends to cre­ate to target a num­ber of di­verse con­sumer seg­ments. As Cana­di­ans be­gin to nav­i­gate the new cannabis land­scape, we be­lieve that Symbl will be­come an es­tab­lished source for prod­uct in­for­ma­tion and cannabis ed­u­ca­tion. We look for­ward to work­ing with both prov­inces to build the foun­da­tion for a safe and re­spon­si­ble mar­ket­place for con­sumers.” Em­blem has de­liv­ered in full its com­mit­ted quan­ti­ties to pro­vin­cial whole­salers in On­tario and Al­berta, meet­ing crit­i­cal dead­lines for the launch of cannabis le­gal­iza­tion on Oct. 17, 2018.
