Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 11, 2019) - Weekend Unlimited (CSE: POT) (FSE: 0OS1) (OTCQB: WKULF), a lifestyle cannabis company, has launched the sale and distribution of its WKND! branded products in Oklahoma. Through a brand alliance with Ruby Mae's, Weekend will move forward with a line of edibles products, and Ruby Mae's will produce a line of flower products.
The lineup of products includes the company's hand-rolled, pre-rolls that are available as cone-shaped "Quicksticks", with each joint containing one-quarter of a gram of premium Oklahoma flower. The line of premium cannabis-infused edibles includes dark and salted dark chocolates, escape hard fruit crystals in a variety of flavors, and soft crystals, the company's unique take on cannabis-infused gummies.
The company's new line of prefilled WKND! vape cartridges, which contain pure cannabis distillate with cannabis-derived terpenes, are available in the company's three proprietary flavors: Bliss, Escape and Now.
These vape cartridges are expertly crafted to express unique effects and flavors.
Chris Backus, President and CEO, stated: "We have done the groundwork in Oklahoma and put tremendous relationships in place, led by our sales team and our partnership with Ruby Mae's, announced on September 17th, giving us reach to 250 cannabis retail stores. As we have previously mentioned, Oklahoma is a wide-open market with terrific potential and production of WKND! branded products has been completed so that we can deliver at the retail level."
In less than a year, Oklahoma's medical marijuana industry went from nonexistent to one of the largest and most valuable cannabis markets in the nation. According to tax receipts released by the Oklahoma Tax Commission, sales of medical marijuana in the state stood at just over $258 million through the first 10 months of 2019 and are on pace to eclipse $350 million by the end of the year.
Chris Backus added: "This is a significant milestone for the Company, our Oklahoma sales team is made up of three experienced sales representatives now in the market with WKND! branded products, in addition to Ruby Mae's sales channels. The local team we have put in place has done tremendous work to understand the needs of the Oklahoma market, what consumers are looking for and we pride ourselves on the ability to be responsive and develop WKND! branded products that meet and exceed that demand. This branded product line illustrates our agility, building upon our Washington State experience and building toward a strong presence throughout Oklahoma and beyond."
In October, the company launched its WKND! Wellness hemp derived CBD online retail shop for USA customers at www.wkndwellness.com. Its "Made in USA" hemp-derived CBD portfolio includes body butter, full-spectrum tincture, cooling gel, and capsules, which represent the top selling product types in the hemp-derived CBD industry.
Management believes that with a presence in both the U.S. and Canada, and a unique entertainment and education division (Weekend Live!), Weekend Unlimited is well-positioned to launch and scale the brands that will define recreational cannabis.
