West Island Makes First Delivery of General Listing to OCS

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 16, 2022) - West Island Brands Inc. (CSE: WIB) (FSE: 39N0) (OTCQB: WIBFF) ("West Island" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to our news release of December 21, 2021, West Island subsidiary, RoyalMax Biotechnology Canada Inc. D.B.A West Island Culture, has forwarded its first shipment of OUESTTM brand premium Montreal cannabis to the Province of Ontario. West Island has been approved for a general listing of two SKUs in Ontario. The Ontario Cannabis Store (the "OCS") has approved the listing of West Island's Platinum Cake and Grandpa's Stash strains. The first delivery was 71 kg. of Platinum Cake premium dried flower, with THC levels over 30 percent and a strong terpene profile. Delivery of Grandpa's stash is expected to begin in the spring.

West Island CEO, Boris Ziger, states, "West Island is building on the success of first entry of OUESTTM brand premium craft cannabis into Ontario, 'Sweet Demon'.
