LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bhang Corporation (“Bhang” or the “Company”) announced today that it will host educational and sensory sessions in Toronto in advance of cannabis edibles legalization, to provide cannabis consumers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Bhang product line and ask questions about proper edibles usage.

To bring Canadians innovative cannabis products, Bhang partnered with Indiva Limited (Indiva) (TSX:NDVA) (US:NDVAF) to manufacture and distribute Bhang cannabis products in Canada. As announced on April 18, 2018, Indiva and Bhang entered into a joint venture to manufacture and distribute Bhang cannabis products including its award-winning chocolates, gums and oral sprays, isolates, vapes and vape cartridges and accessories. Bhang’s Canadian edibles will be made with Indiva cannabis and become available once edible sales are legal in Canada.

The educational and sensory sessions will be held at 180 Smoke Vape Store (180 Smoke) locations across Toronto. 180 Smoke, a leading Canadian vape product retailer, is to be acquired by Bhang’s California licensee Origin House (CSE: OH) (OTCQX: ORHOF) as announced on September 27, 2018.

“We are pleased to work with our business partners Indiva and Origin House to introduce Canadians to our award-winning product line,” said Scott Van Rixel, CEO of Bhang. “We’ve spent 9 years creating one of the most recognized cannabis brands on the planet anchored by our 8X cannabis cup winning gourmet chocolate bars. We are excited to bring future Canadian consumers the opportunity to learn more about the benefits and safe usage of our edible products.”

Bhang’s long-standing brand, history of operational execution, and innovative product portfolio were built on a strong foundation of quality and consumer safety. With a portfolio of over 100 cannabis and CBD based products, Bhang is uniquely positioned to introduce Canadians to a wide range of consumer products. The announced sessions represent the first phase of Bhang’s roll-out in the Canadian marketplace. Indiva’s Canadian wide distribution model and multi-provincial sales teams will be assets to Bhang’s growth in Canada.
