FIGR expands beyond their origins in the East Coast, reaching the West Coast for the first time
TORONTO, April 8, 2020 /CNW/ – Figr Brands, Inc. (Figr), a vertically integrated legal cannabis company, announced today its products are now available for sale in British Columbia, marking its first entry into Western Canada in its move to becoming a national brand. Three of the company’s cannabis strains, FIGR No. 17, FIGR No. 8 and FIGR No. 7, and its Craft Cartridges that are compatible with any 510 battery device, are available for purchase through BC Cannabis.
“While entry into a new provincial market is an important step for us, this is also a challenging and uncertain time for Canadians as we navigate the evolving COVID-19 environment,” said Harvey Carroll, President of Figr Brands, Inc. “For us, that means implementing a variety of measures to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, consumers and community. It also means continuing to provide a consistent supply of our cannabis products with the support of the rigorous processing procedures we are known for.”
As consumers in British Columbia are introduced to Figr products, they can find product information, including where and when the cannabis was harvested, how long it was cured, its terpene and cannabinoid profiles, and more, using the track-and-trace platform, SENTRIâ„ , available to consumers through the Figr Budtender app* or online via Figr’s website (www.figr.com/quality).
Figr’s products are now available in five Canadian provinces through retail locations and online stores, including Prince Edward Island (Prince Edward Island Cannabis Management Corporation), Nova Scotia (Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation), New Brunswick (Cannabis New Brunswick), Ontario (Ontario Cannabis Store), and British Columbia (BC Cannabis Stores).
