New York, NY – September 15, 2022 – NuLeaf Naturals, one of America’s top pioneering cannabinoid companies, has launched a new CBD gummies line. Desperate for a good night’s rest, more consumers are turning to CBD and CBN gummies for their sleep issues, especially as natural wellness trends have increased since the pandemic. Various cannabinoid products are available from the well-known industry developer and manufacturer of organic cannabinoid products in the form of oils (for humans and animals) and herbal capsules. To meet the growing consumer demand, cannabis companies Hempshire Group (TSXV:HMPG) (OTCPK:HMPSF), HEXO Corp (TSX:HEXO) (NASDAQ:HEXO), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NASDAQ: CGC), Tilray Brands Inc (TSX:TLRY) (NASDAQ:TLRY), and Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQ:ACB) (TSX:ACB) are also expanding their CBD products line.
The Hempshire Group (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) is the largest North American manufacturer of hemp cigarettes, with expertise in “seed-to-sale.”
The Hempshire Group (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) just reported that it has finalized a binding purchase deal with European exclusive master distributor Montagnaria Group AG for MOUNTAIN® Smokes destined for Europe and the European Union (EU) for US$1.25 million.
The purchase agreement is the next step after Hempshire (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) announced in a press release on September 7, 2022 that it had just been given approval to market MOUNTAIN® Smokes in Belgium. Due to member state reciprocity, Hempshire (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) now has access to the whole EU.
In accordance with the terms of the purchase agreement, Montagnaria will pay a minimum of US$1.25 million over the period of one year, commencing in September 2022 and ending in August 2023, for MOUNTAIN® Smokes. All purchase orders issued in accordance with the Purchase Agreement must be paid 50% at the time of issue, with the outstanding sums payable before Hempshire (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) dispatches the order.
The purchase agreement was executed to enable MOUNTAIN® Smokes to be distributed in a standardised and efficient manner throughout Europe and the EU. Montagnaria and Hempshire (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) are carefully working together to ensure that the MOUNTAIN® Smokes product conforms with each member country’s specific “local” legislation, including any appropriate warning labels and packaging in the local language.
By placing its initial test orders in 2021, Montagnaria was able to place MOUNTAIN® Smokes in over 400 retail locations and smoke shops throughout Switzerland. Montagnaria also had a big impact on Hempshire’s (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) ability to obtain Belgian government authorisation for the sale of MOUNTAIN® Smokes, which opened the door to the entire EU. Montagnaria will establish European warehouse and fulfilment facilities in order to support retailer accounts, convenience stores, and smoke shops throughout Europe. In order to create a sales and distribution plan for all of Europe, Montagnaria will work closely with Hempshire (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF).
“Penetrating the US$261 billion tobacco products market in Europe is one of our top priorities.” said Hempshire President and CEO Martin Marion. “Montagnaria’s binding financial commitment to MOUNTAIN® Smokes highlights their excitement and belief in the product, and their expectations of a successful European roll-out strategy. We intend on dedicating significant resources alongside Montagnaria to help facilitate brand awareness, consumer demand, and sales in each European country where we introduce MOUNTAIN® Smokes.”
The second quarter of 2022 was revolutionary for the company. During the quarter, Hempshire Group (TSXV:HMPG) (OTC:HMPSF) and Hoist Capital Corp. merged. The business created by Hoist and Hempshire U.S. union is well-positioned to dominate the market for tobacco- and nicotine-free smoking alternatives. It continues the operations that Hempshire U.S. had previously handled.
