SANTA ANA, Calif. — Kush Bottles, Inc. (OTCQB:KSHB) (“Kush Bottles” or the “Company”), a leading provider of packaging, supplies, vaporizers, hydrocarbon gases, solvents, accessories and branding solutions for the regulated cannabis industry, today announced it has signed a lease for a new warehouse facility in Las Vegas to meet demand from the consumer market as well as support the current and new businesses entering the industry or expanding operations.
With the 13,000 square foot facility, expected to be operational mid-June, Kush Bottles expects to minimize the time taken to receive and distribute packaging and supplies, streamline its logistics and access more storage space for high-demand products with rapid turnover times, such as exit bags, cartridges, and pre-roll tubes. By opening its first local distribution facility in Las Vegas, the Company aims to become a stronger partner to some of the most advanced cannabis cultivation and retail facilities in the industry, which are located in Nevada. This warehouse will complement the existing Kush Bottles hazmat facility used today to service the Las Vegas and greater Nevada market with a variety of hydrocarbons, in which businesses use to turn cannabis plants into oils.
“The new Las Vegas facility will further solidify Kush Bottles’ commitment to the city’s thriving, local cannabis community and strengthen our own mission to be the go-to partner for cannabis companies as they scale their operations,” said Kush Bottles CEO Nick Kovacevich. “The fluctuating demand from the tourism and organic growth in the cannabis market means that a lot of our partners are having a difficult time forecasting their packaging and supply needs. By having a local facility, we give our clients the added flexibility of faster delivery as well as offering on-site pick up if that’s what their business dictates.”
As one of the busiest tourist destinations in the country, people from all over the world are being exposed to cannabis, sometimes for the very first time, through Las Vegas dispensaries. With consumer demand at an all-time high in Las Vegas, retailers in the state have already sold nearly $200 million in cannabis in the first six months after the legalization of its adult-use cannabis sales, fueled by both tourists and locals. ¹
