VANCOUVER, March 28, 2018 /CNW/ - Globally recognized health disruptor dosist announced today plans to collaborate with Hiku, Canada's first vertically-integrated cannabis brand house. The leading brands will join forces to provide Canadians with cannabis education, a cutting-edge retail experience and access to the benefits of dosist's proprietary dose-controlled vaporizer, the dose pen™ and its six targeted formulas.
The relationship will initially focus on a series of educational and interactive events designed to empower Canadians to manage their own wellness through natural cannabis solutions. The like-minded brands have recognized the opportunity to inform Canadians about the best practices in controlled and responsible consumption, while showcasing the positive benefits cannabis can have on Canadians' overall lifestyle.
"Hiku and dosist are committed to helping consumers understand and access the benefits of cannabis in a safe manner. We both understand that consumers will want accurate information, lots of choice and creative, sophisticated retail experiences post-legalization," said Alan Gertner, CEO of Hiku. "We're excited to introduce dosist's exceptional products to our customers soon, and in the meantime, work together to educate, inform, and normalize cannabis for Canadians."
Following the legalization of dosist's cannabis products in Canada, consumers will be able to purchase the highly innovative and intuitively designed dose pen™ at Hiku-owned licensed stores. Select locations in key areas will feature an immersive dosist retail experience, where Hiku will be the exclusive retailer of dosist products. Education will inform a key aspect of the retail experience from interactions with sales clerks, to materials available and how the product is displayed.
"We can't think of a better partner to help us connect to a new, curious, and passionate audience that celebrates the wellness benefits of cannabis," said Josh Campbell, President of dosist. "Our targeted formulations and precise dosage are the keys to normalizing cannabis and returning it to its rightful role as a non-toxic wellness tool. We are excited to make this available to Canadians through Hiku's beautiful and inspiring retail spaces."
