KushCo Partners with United Pacific to Expand CBD Distribution Across 350 Gas Stations and Convenience Stores in the Western U.S.
KushCo’s Retail Services Division to Serve as Category Captain for Custom-Designed CBD Wellness Centers
CYPRESS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2020 / KushCo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX:KSHB) (”KushCo” or the ”Company”), a premier provider of ancillary products and services to the legal cannabis and CBD industries, has teamed up with United Pacific, one of the largest independent owners and operators of gas stations and convenience stores in the Western United States, with more than 350 locations across California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado.
Since 1955, United Pacific has been offering motor fuels products under the 76, Conoco, Shell and United Oil brands, and convenience items through the We Got It! Food Mart, My Goods Market, and Circle K brands.
KushCo will work with United Pacific to curate customized “CBD Wellness Centers” across 350 United Pacific locations. Each wellness center will feature custom displays provided by the brands and designed by KushCo.
The wellness centers, launching in December 2020, will vary in product assortment in accordance with each state’s respective CBD laws. The wellness centers will feature seven of KushCo’s CBD client brands, including: Willie’s Remedy, Social CBD, PureKana, Leafwell Botanicals, JustCBD, Higher Frequencies, and B Great. With 53 different SKUs across the sets, encompassing Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate, United Pacific will offer consumers a wide array of product offerings. All products featured in the wellness centers will be produced from hemp and contain 0.3% or less THC, in compliance with federal law.
With the United Pacific launch, KushCo adds its largest retail participant to date, following its foray into CBD retail services in 2019, when KushCo partnered with C.A. Fortune, a multi-billion-dollar sales and marketing agency to provide expertise and distribution in natural, specialty, and conventional grocery channels.
Over the past year, we have made significant inroads into the burgeoning CBD market despite regulatory and COVID-19 related headwinds that have impeded growth potential.
Nick Kovacevich, KushCo’s Co-founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
The United Pacific collaboration represents a massive new footprint for our brands and will provide an opportunity to meaningfully connect with millions of consumers annually. We will provide United Pacific’s store management team with the training and knowledge needed to position their CBD Wellness Centers for success.
Bill Mullen, United Pacific’s President, Retail, added: “We look forward to teaming up with KushCo to expand our CBD offer by introducing additional brands and meeting our customers’ needs. We have been excited about our customers’ response to our initial offer that we introduced in 2019. The introduction of wellness centers will solidly position United Pacific in this new and evolving category.”
