VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA (October 22, 2019) – 1933 Industries Inc. (the “Company” or “1933 Industries”) (CSE: TGIF) (OTCQX: TGIFF), a vertically integrated cannabis consumer packaged goods company, is pleased to report on the Company’s most successful brand launch to date.
Following a 30-day exclusive campaign with one of Nevada's largest dispensary retailers, luxury brand Blonde™ Cannabis made its mark in the state by selling out of every product during its debut. While the Blonde™ brand originated in Los Angeles, California, Nevada was selected for its launch in partnership with 1933 Industries' subsidiary, Alternative Medicine Association (AMA).
"Blonde™ has taken Las Vegas by storm and we could not be more excited about this relationship", remarked Ms. Ester Vigil, President of 1933 Industries. "The positive feedback from consumers has been overwhelming. Blonde™ has been developed as a premium lifestyle product, connecting with both new and discerning, quality-savvy consumers looking for remarkable experiences." Blonde™ cannabis flower, pre-rolls, live resin vape pens and cartridges will be available for order as of today via licensed dispensaries.
The partnership with Blonde™ will continue in California, once the Company completes the renovation of the Green Spectrum facility and sets up its own extraction equipment (news release dated August 15, 2019). "The team behind Blonde™ are adept marketers and branders and will be lending their expertise as we build a house of brands in Nevada, California and in other legal states across the US", added Ms. Vigil. "We continue to attract top name brands to our portfolio due to our reputation for producing quality products that comply with the strictest regulations in the country."
"The buzz about Blonde™ has met and surpassed our expectations. We knew that launching a cannabis brand in a crowded marketplace would require key differentiators based not only on quality cannabis and sophisticated branding but also on a healthy lifestyle and culture that respects the plant. We have an opportunity here to inspire, educate and combat the stigma around cannabis. We are excited to launch in California next month and to continue to collaborate with 1933 Industries as we build our brand," said Mr. Tim Gavin, Co-Founder of Blonde™.
About Blonde™ Cannabis
"Whatever satisfies the soul is truth" - Walt Whitman.
The passion we have for living our truth without stigma is something we practice every day. Because we couldn't find a modern cannabis brand that spoke to us, we created our own. Blonde™ is a modern, premium cannabis company which is truly unrelenting in its pursuit to deliver the highest quality all natural cannabis consistently, with a process that is as true to the whole plant as possible.
Like a good winemaker, we obsess over every detail to create a beautifully nuanced, balanced and distinct flavor in all of our products. Just as all of the decisions a winemaker makes throughout the process of growing, fermenting and storing wine impacts how the bottle tastes and smells, the process of growing, harvesting, extracting and packaging cannabis is everything, affecting its quality, strength, flavors – and your experience.
Our difference is live resin – fresh, not dried. It's like tasting fresh fruit after you've only ever eaten dried. Our newly cut plants are immediately flash frozen, so that the delicate monoterpenes, or natural fragrances and flavors that naturally exist within the plant, do not evaporate. We use a proprietary extraction process to ensure that the pure, live resin concentrates remain loyal in fragrance to the flower in which it came from, retaining the plant's original fresh, robust and unique flavors.
Blonde™ is dedicated to product quality and safety, above all. Blonde™ is responsibly made in the USA using single origin,100% pure raw materials and all of our products are certified clean, free of dyes and pesticides. Our premium craft cannabis products stay as true to the whole plant as possible, using the highest quality all-natural ingredients. Our plants are organically grown and every product batch is rigorously tested for purity. Our THC vape products are free of chemical additives and preservatives and do not contain vitamin E acetate, vegetable glycerin, or propylene glycol. All our products are made with ingredients that are known to be safe for consumers and our products are third-party lab tested.
The experience is exceptional.
And that's our truth.
