LANGLEY, BC, April 7, 2022 /CNW/ – Adastra Holdings Ltd. (CSE: XTRX) (FRA: D2EP) (“Adastra” or the “Company”), a Health Canada Licensed cannabis company focused on processing, sales, organoleptic and analytical testing, is excited to announce that its newly developed brand, Endgame, which was soft-launched last week, sold out in less than 24 hours of delivery to the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch (“BCLDB”). Endgame’s initial SKU delivery included two varieties of vaporizer cartridges: Mosa x Blood Orange and White Rhino x Raspberry Lemon.
“We are thrilled to bring Endgame, our first exclusive in-house brand, to market,” said Michael Forbes, Chief Executive Officer, Corporate Secretary and Director of Adastra. “Selling out on day one of launch demonstrates consumer appetite for a lower cost vaporizer that delivers on quality, flavour and convenience. With added production capacity, new orders are quickly being shipped to supply our customers.”
In early April, Adastra plans to deliver two new Endgame shatter products to the BCLDB: Black Cherry Punch x Jack Herer and Jack Herer x White Rhino. These hydrocarbon extracted cannabis concentrates are gaining popularity in the Canadian cannabis market for their full spectrum extract potency and flavour.
