New Glacial Gold™ Products
Three New Vapes SKUs Approved in British Columbia
Nextleaf is pleased to announce that the British Columbia Liquor and Distribution Branch ("LDB") has approved three new vape SKUs, including two new flavours: Sunshine Punch and Sparkling Grape. The Company anticipates the product will launch first in the province of British Columbia ("B.C."), followed shortly by Saskatchewan, and nationally for medical cannabis patients through www.Mendocannabis.ca ("Mendo").
Distilled CBD 100 Oil & Distilled CBD 200 Oil
Glacial Gold™ Distilled CBD 200 Oil is a first in Canada's adult-use and medical markets, with the highest amount of CBD in a single unit (5700 mg), highest potency of CBD available in an ingestible oil format (200 mg/g = 20 %), and best dollar value per milligram for CBD in Canada.
The Company has received the initial purchase order for Glacial Gold™ Distilled CBD 100 Oil and Distilled CBD 200 Oil, and expects both products to be available in December for B.C. and Saskatchewan, as well as nationally for medical cannabis patients through Mendo.
Glacial Gold™ continues to see strong sell-through and consistent demand within the first three months in market. The Company is pleased to provide the following key metrics:
- Since the initial launch of seven SKUs in September the province has accepted five additional SKUs for a total of 12 provincial listings in B.C.
- Over $1,000,000 of wholesale gross sales to the province of B.C.
- 2/3 retail penetration rate with Glacial Gold™ products already sold in more than half of B.C.'s 370+ government and private retail locations

The Session THC Vape features a full potency THC profile for cannabis enthusiasts who seek a more elevated experience and connection. The Anytime 1:1 Vape is formulated with a balanced THC and CBD profile for consumers looking for a more moderate, go-to vape. Flavours include Glacial Fresh Mint with refreshing alpine aromas found in the B.C. backcountry, and Berry Lemonade, reminiscent of fresh-picked berries from the Fraser Valley.
