June 19, 2019 – Vancouver, BC: The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announce that the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has given final packaging approval for 6 Wright & Well cannabis topicals and tinctures to be distributed in Oregon, in the United States. This approval represents the final approval before the products can be sold through cannabis retailers in Oregon. OLCC approval of 3 additional Wright & Well products is expected shortly.
According to Statista, legal sales of Cannabis in Oregon are projected to be close to USD$1 billion in 2021.
The initial 6 approved Wright & Well products are:
- Be Chill Tincture (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source)
- Be Better CBD Tincture (CBD: hemp source)
- Be Better CBD Extra Strength Tincture (CBD: hemp source)
- Be Relieved Pain Gel (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source)
- Be Free Pain Balm (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source)
- Be Loved Massage Oil (THC: Purple Hindu Kush, CBD: hemp source)
“The OLCC packaging approval is one of the most rigorous processes to complete before products can be legally manufactured and sold in Oregon,” says Penny Green, CEO of Yield Growth. “Now that we have successfully completed the process, we have cleared the final hurdle, and we expect manufacturing to be complete in early July, and sales to begin at the end of July.”
The products will be distributed in Oregon by Nova Paths, an Oregon-based cannabis licensed distributor that has established relationships with over 400 licensed cannabis retail stores. Targeted towards wellness-minded consumers, the products incorporate the highest quality CBD, THC, hemp root oil and terpenes to support a healthy lifestyle.
