Toronto, Canada, October 26, 2020 – WeedMD Inc. (TSX-V:WMD) (OTCQX:WDDMF) (FSE:4WE) (“WeedMD” or the “Company”), a federally-licensed producer and distributor of medical-grade cannabis is pleased to announce it has commenced shipping its Color Cannabis-branded 510 vaporizer cartridges (“vapes”) to Canada’s largest retail distributor, the Ontario Cannabis Store (“OCS”). Color vapes landed in the “Top 5” status when compared to over 30 available vape brands during its first week of availability, according to OCS-provided data.

WeedMD’s legacy cultivars Pedro Sweet Sativa and Ghost Train Haze vapes are produced at the Company’s state-of-the-art extraction hub utilizing WeedMD’s own terpene-rich biomass. Additional strain-specific offerings, such as Mango Haze and Black Sugar Rose, are scheduled to follow soon.

“The initial success of our Color vapes in Canada’s largest retail market is a significant milestone for our team and reflects the increased brand recognition and strong consumer interest in our quality-derived products,” said Stephen Ng, Chief Commercial Officer. “Our terpene-rich products under Color and Saturday are garnering national appeal as we prepare to launch a broader portfolio of products from our best-in-class cultivation and production platform.”

In addition to Color vapes, WeedMD recently launched a new cultivar ‘Black Sugar Rose’ coming this fall, as well as strain-specific pre-roll products, nitrogen-infused packaging and a brand partnership with PAX Labs Inc. for its PAX® ERA® and ERA PRO™line of strain-specific vapes. The Company also announced it is the exclusive Canadian supplier and distributor of acclaimed U.S.-based wellness house Mary’s Medicinals, with topicals production slated to commence at WeedMD’s extraction hub in Aylmer, ON later this year.
