Bhang Partners with INDVR Brands in Colorado
Las Vegas, NV, December 14, 2021 – Bhang Inc. ("Bhang" or the "Company") (CSE: BHNG) (OTCQB: BHNGF), a global cannabis CPG brand company with an award-winning portfolio of products, has entered into a strategic partnership with INDVR Brands, Inc. (CSE: IDVR) (“INDVR”), a premier cannabis brand house and infused products producer, to bring Bhang’s products to the state of Colorado.
“Bhang was in Colorado for several years until a legislative change forced a pivot,” says Jamie L. Pearson, Bhang’s President and CEO. “I’ve explored many opportunities since we left and have patiently waited for the right fit. Experiencing the sophistication and competency Hugh Hempel [INDVR’s CEO] and his team bring to operating cannabis manufacturing and distribution made this an easy decision. Our two companies complement each other well and I’m excited to get going.”
The new licensing deal is part of Bhang’s ongoing expansion plans, providing the company with access to another state and additional revenue generation. “Our strategy continues to be a three-legged stool,” Pearson adds. “Number one: Continue to dominate in California and Canada. Two: Expand Bhang’s penetration and awareness in other markets. And three: Innovate for more shelf space and market share. This opportunity with INDVR falls under number two, and we are excited to announce more news around ongoing product innovation soon.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Jamie and the entire Bhang team,” states Hugh Hempel, INDVR’s CEO. “Bhang’s products are widely recognized as the top cannabis-infused chocolate in the world, including the #1 selling cannabis chocolate edible in Canada. We are excited to be able to offer Bhang to our Colorado-based customers soon, and plan on pursuing other available jurisdictions in the United States.”
Bhang recently announced the launch of a new hot chocolate SKU at the Hall of Flowers event in Palm Springs, along with a hard candy SKU coming in the new year.
According to Hempel, INDVR anticipates production of Bhang SKUs to begin in January 2022, and expects to report revenue figures generated from this strategic partnership in its Q2 2022 financials.
