RESERVE is the first SLANG product to be offered in Florida under its strategic partnership with Trulieve announced in February 2019. Pursuant to SLANG’s agreement with Trulieve, Trulieve has an exclusive license to produce and distribute the SLANG portfolio of products in Florida. As Florida’s largest fully integrated medical cannabis company, Trulieve is offering RESERVE at all 29 of its licensed dispensaries across the state.
“Our Trulieve relationship is off to a great start. This product launch is an important milestone, and the first of many we look forward to reaching in Florida,” said Peter Miller, CEO of SLANG. “We expect RESERVE to be very well received in Florida by medical cannabis patients who are seeking a strain-specific, repeatable experience at an affordable price.”
“Expanding patient access to high-quality, natural relief in safe, reliable, and innovative forms is an important factor in deciding who we partner with and what products we offer to patients. Our partnership with SLANG allows us to continue providing patients with an expanded variety of high-quality medication,” said Kim Rivers, CEO of Trulieve. “We know patients in Florida will benefit greatly from their award-winning products.”
First launched in California earlier this year, the RESERVE product offering was created to fulfill a demand in the market for a curated selection of top strains available at a competitive price. The RESERVE line uses both botanical and cannabis terpenes to deliver memorable moments to the quality-conscious consumer.
Three RESERVE strains are available in Florida, including Jack Herer, Master Kush, and SFV OG. RESERVE is filled with high-quality, high-potency distillate and is available in both half-gram and one-gram O.penVAPE cartridges with accompanying 2.0 batteries.
RESERVE is an extension of the O.penVAPE brand, which has been the #2 best-selling cannabis brand in the United States since 2014, as reported by BDS Analytics. Through its strategic partnership with Trulieve, SLANG also plans to introduce its Bakked, District Edibles, and Magic Buzz product lines to Florida’s growing number of medical patients. Availability of products is subject to regulatory approval by the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
