(“BRNT”), an Alberta based brand house and cannabis ancillary company that launched the top performing dried flower and pre-roll Alberta brand, Violet Tourist.
Under the Agreement, the Company will work with BRNT to immediately launch Violet Tourist branded cannabis 2.0 infused pre-roll in Alberta.

BRNT CEO, Gage Gorda said, “During 2020, BRNT commenced with a process to identify a new partner for our Violet Tourist branded products. We had serious inquiries from numerous LP’s in the Country, including some of the largest, but none came close to the product offering capabilities, speed to market, depth of relationships with provincial buyers and most of all internal culture and leadership than Heritage.”

“We are thrilled to have executed this Agreement with BRNT as it provides us with control of a brand in Alberta that has proven its ability to capture market in Canada’s second largest market by revenue. Without a cash outlay or issuance of Heritage shares, we secure exclusive cannabis 2.0 rights to Violet Tourist branded products in Alberta and retain control to expand distribution of the brand across the Country and into cannabis 1.0 formats over the duration of the Agreement,” said David Schwede, CEO of Heritage.
