SLANG Worldwide Inc, a global cannabis consumer packaged goods company with a diversified portfolio of popular brands, announced that it has launched its industry-leading vape brand, O.pen, in Arizona through its strategic partnership with Trulieve Cannabis Corp., one of the leading and top-performing cannabis companies based in the United States.
SLANG’s O.pen brand, which is regarded as one of the most recognized and best-selling vape brands in the country, will be sold in Trulieve’s 21 retail stores located throughout Arizona. In addition, O.pen will be available in over 140 additional retail stores in the state through SLANG’s wholesale distribution channel. With the addition of this new market, SLANG brands will now be available across 13 key States and Territories.
John Moynan, CEO of SLANG, said, “The opportunity to enter the Arizona cannabis market with a long-standing partner such as Trulieve represents yet another key development in our national expansion strategy and serves to further elevate O.pen’s leadership position as the top-performing vape brand in the U.S. Trulieve has successfully established a leading presence in Arizona, and we look forward to driving O.pen’s brand performance in this high-growth market.”
Through SLANG’s longstanding strategic alliance with Trulieve, which dates back to early 2019, the companies have also partnered to bring O.pen products into Maryland, Florida and West Virgina with arrival in Pennsylvania expected soon.
“Since expanding Trulieve’s presence in the Arizona cannabis market with the opening of our new dispensary in Phoenix, we have been keenly focused on achieving our brand promise to deliver an exceptional customer experience, providing the right products at the right price in the right place,” said Gina Collins, Trulieve’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Our long partnership with SLANG and O.pen’s continued outperformance in each of our stores has helped us to succeed in this mission.”
