In addition, AMA will provide turn-key marketing and promotional services for the term of the Agreement.

For more than 15 years, genetics bred by DNA have won more than 200 awards in all categories at the most prestigious cannabis events around the world, making DNA a global standard in breeding and growing truly best-in-class strains. Such awards include the High Times ‘Top 10 Strain of the Year’,  which was inducted into The High Times seedbank hall of fame in 2009, and the High Times Trailer Blazers Award, for contributions made towards uniting the fields of entrepreneurship, politics and medicine.

“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with such a world renowned brand in our new purpose-built, advanced cultivation facility. Through our strong distribution networks where our products are sold in state-wide dispensaries, AMA controls one of the largest market shares for wholesale branded goods in the state of Nevada,” commented Mr. Chris Rebentisch, USA COO and Founder of Infused. “We will welcome DNA into our first-class platform of education, sales, and customer service. We believe that the partnership between a world-class leader in genetics and a top producer and operator will set the standard for the highest quality products available in the rapidly expanding Nevada market.”

“I just can't wait to be able to land in Vegas and get the same fire we grow at home," said Don Morris, Co-Founder of DNA.  “We have always looked at Vegas as a key market and wanted to make sure we had the right partner.  With 1933's new state of the art facility and their commitment to education and quality standards, we will really be able to showcase our work and bring the very best in California cannabis to Nevada.”
