Toronto, ON, August 16, 2019 - The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “TGOD”) (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF), a leading producer of premium certified organic cannabis, is pleased to announce that it has completed its inaugural shipment to the Ontario Cannabis Store, marking the Company’s entrance into Canada’s recreational market. Ontario consumers will soon be able to experience TGOD’s acclaimed Unite Organic dried flower, the Company’s high THC signature strain, which will be available on www.ocs.ca as well as at select retail locations across the province.
“We are thrilled to introduce Unite Organic dried flower to Ontario adult consumers. Launched earlier this year with our Grower’s Circle, Unite Organic was highly praised by medical patients. Our small pilot confirmed that market demand for premium certified organic cannabis exceeds available supply,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD. “Today’s milestone gets us one step closer to achieving our vision of becoming the world’s leading brand for premium certified organic cannabis in both medical and recreational segments. We look forward to continuing to expand our distribution network as we ramp up production in the months ahead.”
In a recent study conducted by Hill & Knowlton, over 50% of recreational consumers stated that it is important that their cannabis be organic. TGOD’s cannabis is grown in the Company’s proprietary living soil, in accordance with all-natural principles and without irradiation. The Company’s growing process is also certified organic by both Pro-cert and ECOCERT, two leading organic certification bodies, providing consumers with a safe, consistent, and enjoyable cannabis experience.
Initially available to a small group of medical patients called the Grower’s Circle, TGOD recently opened sales to medical patients across the country. The Company has also signed supply agreements with Alberta and British Columbia.
