Vancouver, British Columbia and Denver, Colorado--(Newsfile Corp. - February 9, 2021) -  INDVR Brands Inc. (CSE: IDVR) (the "Company" or "INDVR Brands" or "INDVR"), a premier cannabis brand consolidator and edibles retailer, proudly announces it has formally incorporated its wholly owned subsidiary the State of California with INDVR California and is in late-stage discussions with three independent distributors to begin supplying Honu edible products to approximately 400 retail locations throughout the State. This will mark the third state the Honu brand is manufactured and distributed in, after Oregon and Washington.

"With the edibles segment making up more than 20 percent of the cannabis consumed in California in 2020, we recognise now is the optimum time to introduce our HONU brand's cannabis-infused products into the fastest growing adult-use cannabis market in the world," said Joshua Mann, INDVR's CEO. "Our award-winning HONU products are currently doing exceptionally well in over 700 locations across Washington and Oregon. In December 2020, in Washington alone, the Honu brand sold over 206,000 individual edible units, and we look forward to providing a fantastic new product offering to Californians in the very near future."

The Company is currently obtaining necessary packaging approvals and anticipates its first shipments to California retail locations to occur during the second quarter of 2021.

Cannabis is legal in certain States in the United States ("U.S."), however cannabis remains illegal under U.S. federal laws. Cannabis One intends to conduct its U.S. cannabis operations in a manner consistent with the applicable State laws and in compliance with regulatory and licensing requirements applicable in the applicable State. However, the readers should be aware that any change in federal guidance on enforcement actions could adversely affect Cannabis One's ability to access private and public capital required in order to support continuing operations and its ability to operate in the U.S.

Unlike in Canada which has Federal legislation uniformly governing the cultivation, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis under the Cannabis Act (Federal), readers are cautioned that in the U.S., cannabis is largely regulated at the State level. To the knowledge of Cannabis One, there are to date a total of 33 states, plus the District of Columbia, that have legalized cannabis in some form. Notwithstanding the permissive regulatory environment of medical cannabis at the State level, cannabis continues to be categorized as a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act in the U.S. and as such, cannabis-related practices or activities, including without limitation, the manufacture, importation, possession, use or distribution of cannabis are illegal under U.S. Federal law. Strict compliance with State laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve Cannabis One of liability under the U.S. Federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any Federal proceeding, which may be brought against Cannabis One. Any such proceedings brought against Cannabis One may materially adversely affect its operations and financial performance in the U.S. market.

THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR PUBLICATION OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAW
