Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: NEPT) (TSX: NEPT) announced Friday an advertising and creative deal with magazine publisher American Media LLC.

The aim of the collaboration is to boost the development of Neptune’s brands in the U.S., such as Forest Remedies and Ocean03, the company said.

American Media operates media brands including Men’s Journal, OK! and Us Weekly and has a total circulation of 5.7-million-plus and reaches more than 53 million readers monthly.

Pursuant to the agreement, American Media will promote and advertise Neptune’s consumer-facing brands in the U.S. and in turn, Neptune will issue 3 million warrants to Amerian Media, with each warrant enabling the holder to buy one common share of the company at a price of $8 per share.

Dylan Howard, American Media's senior vice president of corporate development, said the company is excited to partner with the cannabis company.
