Wildflower Brands Inc. Featured in Exclusive NetworkNewsWire Broadcast

May 6, 2019

NEW YORK, May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkNewsAudio – Wildflower Brands Inc. (CSE: SUN) (OTCQB: WLDFF), a public cannabis company developing and designing brands that focus on plant-based wellness and health products, today announces the broadcast of its exclusive audio interview with NetworkNewsAudio (NNA), a NetworkNewsWire (NNW) Solution that delivers clients unparalleled visibility, recognition and brand awareness in the investment community.

William MacLean, founder and CEO of Wildflower Brands, joins NNW host Stuart Smith in a discussion about the company’s growth and global ambition to provide premium hemp-derived and CBD-based products to consumers who are looking for a different approach to health care.

“There is a very strong movement globally away from the pharmaceutical chemical type of medication to one that’s more based on holistic health, which essentially involves a lot of plant-based remedies,” MacLean explains, noting people want to develop a stronger immune system in order to live healthier, more balanced and fulfilling lives. “Consumers are looking for a different answer to the wellness side of their health.”

MacLean said he saw a great opportunity to develop high-end CBD products nearly eight years ago when it became apparent there was a strong shift in Canada toward medicinal marijuana.

“There were no well-established brands that really addressed the needs of the consumers,” he said, adding his goal from the beginning was to develop extremely effective, high-end products under a brand that could connect with all consumers.

“Cannabis will be mainstream in the future. It is a plant that has a deep imbedded history with humans and there’s a reason why this magnificent plant plugs into our endocannabinoid system like a lock and key,” MacLean says.

Wildflower initially launched its product line in Washington state several years ago, learning along the way that it was critical to be in on the ground floor in order to gain market share. California’s newly emerging legal cannabis market beckoned, and Wildflower moved quickly to establish a foothold with a company that held 17 medical and recreational cannabis-related licenses from cultivation, manufacturing and processing to delivery and retail.

Wildflower products can be found in over 300 retail outlets in the United States and in approximately 170 regulated cannabis stores in the Washington state market. In Manhattan, New York, the company’s high-end CBD product line are available in more than 20 retail stores like the Alchemist’s Kitchen. Sales from BuyWildflower.com in the New York market alone account for over 40% of Wildflower’s online revenue.

Wildflower’s push to expand globally is moving quickly as multiple distribution companies from around the world are courting the company, he said. The recently signed agreement with Two Towers, a major wholesale prescription medical and over the counter wellness distribution company in Poland, will expand the reach of Wildflower Wellness brand’s CBD+ line of products there. Tariff codes for importing Wildflower products into Poland are secured, which will eventually open the door into other European Union countries.

Wildflower’s organic growth and strong foundation is supported by a group of private investors and a consortium of institutional investors.

“I see us being a leader in the industry. I really see [Wildflower] being a global brand that will be recognized as a premier wellness brand,” MacLean says. “And right now, there is a big movement on the health side of cannabis, specifically CBD.”
