TACOMA, WA / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2020 / IONIC BRANDS CORP. (CSE:IONC)(OTC PINK:IONKF)(FRA:1B3) ("IONIC BRANDS" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired selected assets of WW Agriculture, more specifically the Dabulous economy brand of infused products.
The Company originally entered into a Letter of Intent ("LOI") to acquire WW Agriculture on June 20, 2018. Under the terms of the LOI, the Company's licensed partner, Ionic Washington, began to provide co-manufacturing services including but not limited to the sales and manufacturing of a newly developed brand called Dabulous extracts. While the Company was unable to complete the acquisition of WW Agriculture due to economic challenges in 2019, we continued to co-manufacture and sell the Dabulous products. Since July 2018, the Company has positioned the Dabulous brand as its economy extract brand allowing the Company to service not only the premium consumer segment of the market but the critical economy segment. The Company now has a broader scope of products to capture a more significant share of retail shelf space in the Washington market. The Company will be launching the Dabulous product line in the Oregon market in August 2020. The Company sold 198,036 units and generated $1,759,208 in sales in 2019 from the Dabulous brand.

Ionic Brands Chairman and CEO John P. Gorst commented that, " while we will always remain true to our core brand strategy of premium cannabis products with the Ionic and Zoots brands, we recognized in early 2019 the value of providing a broader range of products priced for a more cost-conscious consumer was important to grow revenue. We are excited about the potential growth of this particular consumer segment."
