OAKLAND, Calif., and BOCA RATON, Fla.Bloom – Bloom Farms, a leading California cannabis company and creator of premium hemp-derived CBD products, and Greenlane Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: GNLN) (“Greenlane”), a leading distributor of premium vaporization products and consumption accessories, today announced an agreement through which Greenlane will be the exclusive distributor to smoke and vape shops for Bloom Farms’ CBD line.
Bloom Farms is one of a select group of high-quality CBD brands Greenlane offers to its retailer customers. Greenlane currently serves over 7,000 independent smoke shop and regional retail chain operators with an estimated 11,000 retail locations that in turn serve millions of consumers.
Bloom Farms premium CBD line offers consumers a “California Pure and Simple” experience. Leveraging the Company’s deep roots in California cannabis, Bloom Farms creates products made with high quality, uncut, hemp-derived CBD vape oil and tinctures from organically grown hemp. Both are naturally high in terpenes, have a full cannabinoid profile, are created from sustainably farmed hemp and are meticulously formulated. The vape oils contain no fillers such as the MCT, PG or VG found in most CBD vape oils on the market today. The line initially includes three tinctures and a selection of 19 vaporization products including disposable vapor pens, vapor oil cartridges and batteries that will appeal to a broad range of consumers.
“The rollout of our CBD line in partnership with Greenlane is a huge step forward for Bloom Farms and will make one of the most highly regarded brands in the industry available to millions of consumers,” said Sallyann Nichols, President of Bloom Farms CBD. “We chose Greenlane because of their extensive network of retailers and because we share many of the same values as a business — a commitment to the highest standards in sales and customer service, product quality, and professionalism.”
“Bloom Farms’ California heritage brand and its experience and performance in California made this an attractive partnership for Greenlane. Bloom Farms will be a great addition to our industry leading product portfolio and be a great fit for the accounts we serve,” said Aaron LoCascio, Greenlane CEO.
In addition to acting as Bloom Farms exclusive distribution partner to smoke and vape shops, Greenlane will also make Bloom Farms CBD products available through its company-owned Higher Standards stores in New York and Atlanta. Bloom Farms sells its CBD line through its own website (www.bloomfarmscbd.com), numerous e-commerce platforms, and select premium boutiques, pharmacies, spas, hotels and health clubs throughout the United States.
“Bloom Farms has deep roots and a powerful brand in California cannabis that has made us a leader in vape and enabled us to enter the flower market and quickly became a top ten seller in the state,” said Mike Ray, Bloom Farms’ Founder and CEO. “Now we’re bringing the same values, commitment to quality and access to the California lifestyle to retailers and consumers across the country with our premium CBD line.”
Since 2015, Bloom Farms has had a 1:1 program in place to address food insecurity. Through a network of food banks, the Company provides one meal to a person in need for each of its products sold, including its CBD products. To date, Bloom Farms has provided over 1.8 million meals.
