Jushi Holdings Inc. (“Jushi” or the “Company”) (CSE: JUSH) (OTCQX: JUSHF), a vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis operator, announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Franklin Bioscience OH, LLC, (“FBS – OH”), a licensed medical cannabis processor in Ohio. FBS – OH operates an 8,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art processing facility located in Columbus, Ohio. Additionally, the Company has launched a series of upcoming brands and products in the State of Ohio, beginning with the debut of its brand, Sèche, the Company’s fine flower line, which is currently available for purchase at partner dispensaries across the Buckeye State.
Jushi plans to follow the Sèche brand launch with the debut of Tasteology, the Company’s brand of premium, real fruit, cannabis-infused gummies and tarts, available in the following cannabis-infused gummies flavors: Blueberry Calm, Peach Balance and Mango-Pineapple Boost, and in the following cannabis-infused tarts flavors: Green Apple Balance, Sour Watermelon Boost, Blue Raspberry Calm and Mellow Mint. Jushi’s award-winning vaporization line, The Lab, in the form of .5g and .3g vape cartridges with rechargeable batteries, will also make its official Ohio debut in the coming weeks.
With the Company’s previously announced acquisition of OhiGrow, LLC, one of 34 licensed cultivators in Ohio, and Ohio Green Grow LLC (collectively, “OhiGrow”), Jushi expects to start its first cannabis plants this month at the OhiGrow facility in Toledo, Ohio. Jushi also expects to bring additional Sèche flower product lines, along with its award-winning flower brand, The Bank, to Ohio medical cannabis patients in the first quarter of 2022. Currently, the Company’s Sèche and The Bank brands are available at dispensaries across Nevada and Pennsylvania, and are also expected to launch in Virginia in September of this year.
