Headset Canadian Insights Sales Data confirms Auxly as the #5 LP in terms of national market share with 7.3% of total sales

Supporting further growth, the Company launches fall innovations including new products, seasonal flavors and new strains and formulations

TORONTO, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Auxly Cannabis Group Inc. (TSX - XLY) (“Auxly” or the “Company”), a leading consumer packaged goods company in the cannabis products market, today introduces a fall lineup packed with innovative new products, flavours and formulations designed to delight Canadian cannabis consumers. This new lineup is launching as the Company announces that it has achieved one of its key 2021 objectives by achieving the #5 position among Canadian Licensed Producers.

Auxly continues to expand its market share in the Canadian cannabis sector through the Company’s strategic growth of its innovative portfolio of branded products. A strong performance for the month of October has helped Auxly achieve one of its key objectives for the 2021 Fiscal Year – to become a Top 5 Canadian Licensed Producer by national market share. October data has vaulted Auxly into the #5 position among Canadian LPs, with a 7.3% share of the national market, as confirmed by Headset Canadian Insightsi. Auxly has continued to gain market share through continued leadership in the cannabis 2.0 segment - where it maintains #1 position in vapesii and the #1 position in the cannabis 2.0 segment overalliii – and its successful expansion into the 1.0 segment where strong consumer demand for the Company’s Back Forty and Kolab Project branded products has vaulted the Company into the Top 10 producers for both the dried-flower and pre-rolliv categoriesv.

Looking forward, Auxly today unveils a suite of new product offerings designed to excite and delight Back Forty, Kolab Project and Foray consumers. The product launches this fall include: new seasonal confections that evoke the cozy warmth of the holidays; brand-new innovations; extensions of existing product lines that take Auxly brands in new directions; new dried-flower strains; and new flavours & formulations for Auxly’s industry-leading vape portfolio.

“Every member of our team is delighted by the strong response from consumers to our products,” said Andrew MacMillan, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Auxly. “Our iterative process for innovation is rooted in consumer insights, and driven by the tireless execution of product development, sales and marketing. Seasonal trends are very much a part of our formula and this latest round of product innovations convey the coziness and warmth of fall. We’re thrilled with our continued growth and can’t wait to bring more exciting new products to Canadian cannabis consumers.”

Here’s a look at the new products joining Auxly’s core portfolio and launching this fall under the Company’s in-house brands Kolab Project, Back Forty and Foray.

Concentrates:

  • Kolab Project 232 Series Live Terpene Sticks (3 x 0.5g). Canadian consumers haven’t seen anything like Kolab Project Live Terpene Sticks. Called “infused pre-rolls” in States like California where they’re growing in popularity, Live Terpene Sticks are developed using a proprietary process that enables the combination of hydrocarbon-extracted live terp sauce with the best parts of premium cannabis flower; this creates a slow-burning combustible stick, bursting with flavour and potency. The live terpene sticks have potencies reaching up to 34% total THC and up to 4% total terpenes. Available now in Ontario. Launching this month in Alberta and British Columbia.

  • Kolab Project 232 Series Caviar (1g). Caviar is a live-extract made from fresh-frozen Sundae Driver flower that has been put through a hydrocarbon-extraction process. This product is similar to Kolab Project 232 Series Diamonds, but with Caviar the Diamonds are generously coated with flavourful terp sauce. Caviar is highly potent, reaching up to 84% THC and up to 7% total terpenes, and packaged into recyclable and resealable 1g jars to retain freshness. Top terpenes are Terpinolene, Myrcene and Ocimene. Available later this month in Ontario and Alberta.

  • Kolab Project 232 Series Live Rosin Jam (1g). Live Rosin Jam is the result of fresh-frozen Wedding Pie flower that is put through a solventless extraction process, producing a sticky, amber-coloured concentrate speckled with THCA crystals. Wedding Pie is a cross of Grape Pie and Wedding Cake. Top terpenes are Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene and Myrcene. The total THC potency reaches as high as 73% and up to 7% total terpenes. Available later this month in Alberta and British Columbia.

  • Kolab Project concentrates pair well with the competitively priced Kolab Project 232 Series Concentrate Pen, also new this fall. Concentrates are intimidating for many consumers, partly because of the complicated and often expensive equipment required. Kolab Project is removing this barrier to entry for the category with this high-quality device that combines the control found in a dab rig with the portability, discreetness, and convenience of a vape pen. Available in December in Ontario.

Vapes:

  • Back Forty Sour Apple (1g cartridges). Canada’s top-selling vape brand introduces a new 1g size of this popular vape cartridge that bursts with tart apple and sweet fruity flavour. Top terpenes are Limonene, Linalool and Pinene. Available now in Ontario. Launching later this month in Alberta and British Columbia.

Foray Caramel Apple Pie White Chocolate is a single square with 5 mg of THC and 25 mg of CBD. Available now in Ontario. Launching this month in Alberta and British Columbia.

  • Foray Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate spices up Foray’s signature premium milk chocolate with all-natural cinnamon flavour, and adds a balanced cannabinoid profile of 10mg THC and 10mg of CBD. Available this month in Alberta and British Columbia.

  • Foray CBD Blood Orange Soft Chews. Each one of these vegan soft chews is made with pure CBD isolate and no artificial colours or flavours, with 20mg of CBD and zero THC.
