Kelowna, BC, Oct. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Flowr Corporation (TSXV: FLWR), through its subsidiary The Flowr Group (Okanagan) Inc. (collectively “Flowr” or the “Company”), announced today that it has initiated product shipments to the Ontario Cannabis Store (“OCS”), the province’s sole legal online retailer for recreational cannabis, in anticipation of the scheduled October 17, 2018 opening of the adult-use market.

The shipments fulfill OCS’s initial purchase order with Flowr and include five strains of premium cannabis packaged in a variety of stock keeping units including 3.5- and 7-gram jars and 1-, 3- and 5-count packs of pre-rolls.
“We’re very pleased to be supplying Flowr’s premium cannabis to the Ontario Cannabis Store,” said Tom Flow, Flowr’s Co-Founder and President. “Our flower is grown in facilities with proprietary designs and cultivation systems in the world famous Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, then hand trimmed and craft cured to provide consumers with an outstanding sensory experience.”
Flowr previously announced its selection as a supplier to the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, the province’s sole legal cannabis wholesaler. The Company also recently announced that it had begun direct sales of its FlowrRx brand cannabis to medical clients through its website.
Flowr is headquartered in Markham, Ontario and is constructing both an 85,000 square foot cultivation facility and, through a strategic R&D alliance with the Hawthorne Gardening subsidiary of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG), a 50,000 square foot research and development facility in Kelowna, British Columbia. Flowr recently completed a C$36 million fundraising and listed its shares on the TSX Venture Exchange.
