High Times Parent To Acquire California Cannabis Delivery Service
Press | Global Newswire
Cannabis’s Title Brand Will Be Able to Deliver Products in the World’s Premiere Market
Los Angeles, June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hightimes Holding Corp., owner of High Times®, the most well-known brand in cannabis, has announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Mountain High Recreation, Inc., a California-based cannabis delivery service. The primarily stock based transaction will bring cannabis distribution infrastructure and personnel to the High Times® brand ahead of the rebranding of the first High Times retail store.
The closing of the deal will provide Hightimes with distribution depots servicing the Northern and Southern California markets, and a platform for launching its own products.
“This year our team is expanding to include two important sets of consumer experts – successful local cannabis operators who possess a level of customer intimacy you won’t find in large multi store operations, paired with accomplished retail professionals who have led and built some of the most successful multi-billion dollar brands in retail, Peter Horvath, Hightimes Holding Corp.’s Chief Executive Officer said.
Chelsea and Ken Cordoba and their Mountain High Team bring years of experience providing high quality cannabis delivery to California and they truly know their customers and how best to please them. Together we are launching High Times delivery in California where we will bring the best assortment of quality cannabis products to your doorstep safe, and fast, with exceptional value.
While we have been planning this for quite some time now, the recent impacts from the pandemic have accentuated the need for a high quality cannabis delivery solution for California consumers. We are excited for consumers to experience our take on this.”
“Delivery has always been part of our plan for how you will shop our stores. Customers are agnostic about where they complete the transaction,” Hightimes Holding Corp.’s President, Paul Henderson, said. “We’re in the process of transferring ownership of 5 operating stores and 7 new stores across the California market, and we wouldn’t think of servicing that audience without a superb delivery solution in the equation.”
The closing is scheduled to occur prior to September 30, 2020 with the start of High Times branded operations to follow quickly thereafter.
