TORONTO, May 08, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE: CANN) (OTCQX: HERTF) (“Heritage” or the “Company”), is thrilled to announce that it is entering the recreational cannabis market in New York, with RAD branded vape and concentrate products becoming available to New York consumers this summer.
Heritage continues to target the legal markets in the US with an asset light model and has signed a manufacturing and distribution agreement with a local partner that will primarily produce and sell products using Heritage’s innovative formulations and flavours that have achieved success in other markets. The initial launch will be 6 SKUs and Heritage plans to add additional RAD products including live resin, rosin, and infused pre-rolls, as well as expand product offerings with additional Heritage brands.
