Not for distribution in the U.S. or to U.S. Newswires
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Blissco Cannabis Corp. (CSE: BLIS)(OTCQB: HSTRF) (FRA: GQ4B), (“Blissco”) or the (“Company”) is a Canadian wellness cannabis brand based in British Columbia and licensed producer, processor, and distributor of premium dried cannabis and cannabis oil. Today, the company is pleased to announce that it has been approved by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) as a cannabis supplier. The approval allows Blissco to begin supplying Saskatchewan retailers with cannabis products and includes, but is not limited to, supplying premium cannabis products to the Saskatchewan Independent Cannabis Retailers Network (SICRN) members.
“We are excited to receive approval from SLGA and delighted to become a supplier of premium cannabis products for SICRN’s member stores. Each Canadian province has a unique cannabis distribution model. Allowing producers to ship directly to retail stores in Saskatchewan creates efficiencies in the supply chain and thus, lowers costs for both retailers and producers,” said Damian Kettlewell, Blissco CEO.
“SICRN is developing stronger relations with Health Canada licensed producers so we can order directly from them and have their product shipped directly to our stores, lowering our costs. We are excited to work with Blissco to enable our growing member base the opportunity to purchase premium dried cannabis and pre-rolled products and eventually cannabis oil products as well,” said SICRN Vice-President Jim Southam.
SICRN (Saskatchewan Independent Cannabis Retailers Network)
SICRN is a non-profit industry association founded in 2018 that represents 33% of the private retail cannabis stores in Saskatchewan.
