TORONTO, Aug. 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Beleave Inc. (CSE: BE) (OTCQX: BLEVF) ("Beleave" or the "Company") is proud to announce that it has been selected by the Ontario Cannabis Store ("OCS") for sale of its Seven Oaks brand and will be available for recreational sale after October 17, 2018.
"This is great news for our team here in Ontario," said Beleave CEO, Andrew Wnek. "OCS has been diligent and thorough in their application and approval processes. Our selection as an official supplier is further evidence of our best-in-class products and responsible leadership. This adds to our extensive distribution network which already includes British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan."
The Company worked closely with the OCS to finalize an agreement that provides its cannabis at a competitive price, while not compromising on the quality and standards for which Beleave is highly-regarded.
Beleave will package and sell three strains of its cannabis products under the Seven Oaks brand at launch and will continue to expand options for consumers as new varieties become available. The brand is guided by the principles of responsible and safe access to recreational cannabis for adults who like to maintain productive and active lifestyles.
With nearly forty percent of the Canadian population, Ontario represents the largest market for distribution and sales of medical and recreational cannabis in Canada. Beleave already operates a network of medical cannabis clinics in Ontario under the Medi-Green banner. "We will be expanding that network with new locations this fall and anticipate a more aggressive strategy as we approach Spring 2019," added Wnek.
Beleave applauds the OCS for recognizing its high-quality products and including it on the official suppliers list. The Company looks forward to working with them in the future to ensure professional and responsible access for Ontario residents.
