Award-Winning Brand Launched Into 60 Stores In First 3 Months of Expansion, and 13 Accounts in the Last Two Weeks
COSTA MESA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 24, 2019 / California cannabis brand Orchid Essentials (CNSX: ORCD), which launched in California in mid-January, 2019 has experienced rapid growth within the state and market response to their lineup of high-quality vape products has been strong. Within three months of its initial launch, Orchid has landed on shelves in 60 new retail locations including Urban Pharm, The Leaf El Paseo, and One Love Beach Club to name a few. Orchid has landed 13 new retail accounts in the last two weeks alone, setting a very healthy pace for its retail expansion. Not only has the Company seen week-over-week growth and consistent re-orders with the new accounts, but it is also expanding its events and marketing team, increasing the amount of in-store events and retail touchpoints.
Co-founded and managed by Corey Mangold and Rene Suarez, Orchid's mission is to create the highest standards in the cannabis industry and be committed to safety, efficacy, and quality. True to this mission, Orchid uses natural terpenes, and ensures that its materials are thoroughly screened for pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, and bacteria while also ensuring high-potency cannabinoid and terpene levels. Mr. Mangold is also the co-founder and Principal of Gigasavvy, a booming creative marketing agency, while Mr. Suarez is a former partner of Space Jam, one of the largest vaporized e-juice brands. Orchid's commitment to its mission of quality and safety combined with the stellar experience and a track record of its co-founders and the market response to its products poises the Company to be a leading national brand in the cannabis industry.
About the expansion in California, Mr. Mangold comments, "The expansion we're seeing in California has been eye-opening, but what has been most impressive is our sell-through rate at the retail level. According to managers/owners of some of our California retail accounts, we are in some cases the best selling vape cartridge and in some, the best-selling product across all categories. We expect this growth to continue as we ramp up our sales and in-store marketing efforts."
The fast-growing cannabis brand became one of the top-selling brands in the first quarter it entered the Oregon market, according to BDS analytics. The growth Orchid is seeing in California is yet another milestone for the brand that indicate that its goals of growing in California, just as it did in Oregon, are on track. After merging with Earny Resources, Ltd. in 2018 to go public in Canada, Orchid began trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange earlier this year as Orchid Ventures, Inc. under the ticker symbol ORCD.
