California cannabis leader continues multi-state expansion with the launch in Arizona in early 2023
SALINAS, Calif., Jan. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lowell Farms Inc. (CSE:LOWL; OTCQX:LOWLF) is set to debut its award-winning cannabis products at recreational and medicinal dispensaries in Arizona. The California-born innovator in cannabis cultivation and creator of the iconic Lowell Smokes brand has partnered with cannabis operator The Pharm, LLC to launch multiple products in 2023.
“Arizona was the fastest state in the nation to begin retail cannabis sales after recreational use was legalized in 2020, and that speaks to the demand for quality products and celebrated brand for which Lowell Farms is known,” says Lowell Farms Inc. Chairman of the Board George Allen. “As we enter into 2023, Lowell Farms remains committed to multi-state expansion and putting our award-winning brand in front of every consumer as we work toward legalization at the national level.”
The strategic licensing agreement made between the two cannabis leaders will see Lowell Smokes at The Pharm’s two dispensaries: Sunday Goods Tempe and Sunday Goods Phoenix. Following its debut, the legendary Lowell Smokes products will be available to dispensaries state wide on a wholesale basis.
“Throughout our history we have sought to partner with brands that break ground in this industry, and we are very excited to welcome Lowell Farms and its celebrated brand, Lowell Herb Co. to Arizona,” says The Pharm’s CEO John Haugh. “This is an ideal partnership, as we share a common goal of delivering a one-of-a-kind cannabis experience for consumers while working together to bring about positive change and fairness in our highly regulated industry.”
Arizona in 2021 became the country’s second-most lucrative cannabis market, behind California, with $1.6 billion in cannabis sales. Lowell Farms’ entry into the market comes on the heels of its recent expansion into Massachusetts, Michigan, and Illinois, and the introduction of Lowell Smokes at Colorado and New Mexico retailers.
