OTTAWA, June 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HEXO Corp (“HEXO”, or the “Company”) (TSX: HEXO; NYSE: HEXO) is proud to launch new 30 gram medical flower format for its popular high-THC strain Tsunami under HEXO medical cannabis.
HEXO has been dedicated to providing Canadian clients high quality medical cannabis since 2015. A year ago, the Company updated its medical packaging to comply with the Cannabis Regulations, resulting in smaller product formats. HEXO is proud to launch a new 30 g format offered in a resealable, odour-proof and child-resistant pouch.
“We know our medical clients have been waiting for this opportunity to purchase a higher volume of cannabis without excess packaging,” said HEXO CEO and co-founder Sebastien St-Louis. “Our Tsunami flower benefits from enhanced humidity controls for maximum freshness and to promote ideal bud density.”
The move to a larger format and a new type of packaging is an important step on HEXO’s sustainability journey and provides medical clients with a more discreet option for high volume orders.
“At HEXO, we have a long history of medical cannabis. We offer our clients free shipping and absorb the federal excise tax on their behalf,” added St-Louis. “This product is being offered exclusively to medical clients and we look forward to continuing to roll out additional strains in this format soon.”
