Flowr® Premium Cannabis Products Now Available in Manitoba

With Addition, Company Sells in Five Provinces

Kelowna, British Columbia, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Flowr Corporation (FLWR.V) (FLWPF), through its subsidiary The Flowr Group (Okanagan) Inc. (collectively “Flowr” or the “Company”), announced today that its premium cannabis products are now available for sale through licensed private retailers in Manitoba.

“We’re proud to have Flowr brand cannabis available to consumers in Manitoba and to be working with Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries.  Making Flowr’s products available in Manitoba will help meet the significant demand retailers have experienced while giving consumers there a premium, non-irradiated option” said Tom Flow, Flowr’s Co-CEO.

Currently, four (4) strains of Flowr’s premium cannabis are available in 3.5 and seven (7) gram jars in Manitoba.  The Company previously announced supply agreements with provincial authorities in British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Ontario, sales through a private dispensary in Saskatchewan, and a medical cannabis supply agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart.

Flowr’s premium cannabis products are grown in the world-famous Okanagan Valley in the heart of British Columbia.  The Company’s cultivation facilities are constructed to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards and Flowr employs proprietary designs and systems to create a highly controlled growing environment that it expects will enable it to produce a large portion of its premium cannabis without requiring irradiation to meet Health Canada standards.  Flowr’s cultivation team employs exacting protocols throughout the growing process then carefully harvests, hand trims and craft cures its products, seeking to deliver a premium experience for consumers.
