Greenlane Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: GNLN), one of the largest global sellers of premium cannabis accessories, child-resistant packaging, and specialty vaporization products, today announced the launch of VIBES™ Cubano Cones and a new VIBES apparel collection featuring six unique designs across 25 items. VIBES Fine Rolling Papers is a joint venture between Greenlane and Berner the extremely influential rapper, serial entrepreneur, and founder of Cookies. Cultivated and crafted in France, and then cut and kitted in the Dominican Republic, VIBES offers a curated assortment of premium cones, rolling paper and branded accessories with a mission to create the ultimate smoking experience for connoisseurs.
“We created and curated VIBES papers for the connoisseur with the goal of bringing true innovation to the industry. With the introduction of The Cubano, we have innovated upon the standard width and size of a traditional cone. We believe The Cubano uniquely compliments our generation, culture, and my cannabis brand: Cookies. I couldn’t be more excited to roll out The Cubano globally,” said Berner, CEO and Co-Founder of VIBES Rolling Papers.
The Cubano Cone is longer than a king size paper and significantly wider in diameter. Each cone is meticulously hand rolled with a structure capable of maintaining its shape when packed while the draft angle ensures it burns consistently all the way through. The Cubano is available in all three VIBES paper blends, Ultra Thin, Hemp, and Rice, and can hold up to 8 grams of dry material. As with all VIBES paper products, The Cubano uses all-natural acacia tree gum for a perfect seal. They are currently available in limited quantities through select authorized retailers, and vibespapers.com.
VIBES launched in 2019 and has gained a strong reputation for producing superior quality papers and connecting with consumers in an authentic way. VIBES apparel and accessories have allowed the company to make the jump from rolling papers to establishing itself as a genuine lifestyle brand.
In addition to its new Cubano Cones, VIBES will drop a new apparel collection on its website VibesPapers.com on Friday, July 31st.The collection consists of six new designs: GOAT, Cheetah, 3D, Joint Cloud, Queen, and Block spread across 25 items including shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, fleece pants, and more.

BC Craft Supply Co. Ltd. (CSE: CRFT) announced its first purchase of premium artisanal organic cannabis. BC Craft has purchased 29kg of BC Original Glue, which is pure organic, hand-trimmed, dried flower produced by Coast Mountain Cannabis. The flower will be packaged in beautiful 3.5 gram jars and in premium pre-rolls. BC Craft partnered with Indiva Limited under a master processing agreement (“MPA”) that was announced on May 13, 2020, to facilitate the processing and sales of premium cannabis procured through BC Craft’s vast network of artisanal craft cultivators. Under the MPA, Indiva brings state of the art processing, sales, and national distribution, which will allow micro and small scale cultivators access to the national recreational market and greater visibility for their brand and quality craft product.
BC Craft offers preferential payment terms for flower, with a 50% deposit and 50% payment within 30 days, thus allowing the Company to partner with premium small scale craft cultivators nationwide. BC Craft’s CEO, Matthew Watters stated, “Many of our suppliers have faced significant challenges when entering the regulated market. We chose these terms because while it is reasonable and advantageous for the Company, it also helps the cultivator. Most small batch cultivators are family run businesses and at BC Craft we believe that they deserve to be paid on time and at a fair price.”
CMC is a licensed boutique indoor cultivation facility located in Pemberton, B.C. nestled in the heart of the British Columbia’s Coast Mountain range.

As champions of their community and the surrounding environment, they pride themselves on being a craft, ultra-premium producer, employing the best talent in the industry, and delivering a superior product and experience to their customers.
Matthew Watters, CEO further stated, “This is a pivotal moment in BC Craft’s vision and mandate to bring the highest quality artisanal cannabis into the legal market and serves to validate the Company's long term business model.”
Zylö Therapeutics Inc., developer of the transformational Z-pod™ topical delivery platform, announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Grapefruit USA, Inc. (OTCQB:GPFT) to supply its Z-pod™ system as the technological underpinning of Grapefruit’s Hourglass™ time-release cannabinoid topical cream.
Zylö’s patented Z-pod™ system is formulated such that it enables a Patchless Patch™ product concept, whereby a topically applied cream provides ‘patch-like’ sustained release of a payload—such as cannabinoids or lidocaine—but without the hassles, inconvenience, and disposal issues of a patch. With certain payloads, the Z-pod™ delivery system also increases dermal penetration, improves stability, and/or enhances overall bioavailability.
Grapefruit, which holds licenses in California and Illinois to manufacture and distribute cannabis products (see www.grapefruitblvd.com), has exclusivity initially in these two states and has certain rights to expand the territory of exclusivity to other states and to Canada and Mexico. Canada has a well-established legalized cannabis marketplace, and it is anticipated that Mexico will legalize cannabis in the near future.
Grapefruit plans to introduce Hourglass™ on a limited basis to the California retail market by the end of the third quarter and to ramp up production and delivery of the product shortly thereafter. The architecture of the Hourglass™ delivery cream provides Grapefruit with the ability to formulate variations of its Hourglass™ product concept by loading the cream with unique blends of cannabinoids that its customers deem to be efficacious for a given application or desired result.
Scott Pancoast, Zylö’s CEO and founder, stated “We are enthusiastic about this partnership with Grapefruit and believe their Hourglass™ Topical Delivery Cream will be a game-changer in the recreational/medicinal full-spectrum cannabis market given the extraordinary advantages over traditional methods of consuming cannabis. We look forward to a long and expanding relationship with the Grapefruit team.”
Added Bradley J. Yourist, Grapefruit’s CEO, “We are excited and proud to have completed the developmental phase of Hourglass™, our breakthrough full-spectrum cannabinoid time-release topical delivery cream based on Zylö’s patented xerogel silica delivery system. We have developed an incredible collaborative working relationship with the Zylö team of scientists, which is evidenced by the scope of our agreement. We believe that Grapefruit’s Hourglass™ topical delivery cream is a truly disruptive, breakthrough technology, one that fundamentally changes the way individuals will use cannabinoids to obtain their unique benefits. Destructive and socially distasteful smoking of cannabis flowers and consumption of edibles that are metabolized unevenly are simply no longer necessary to enjoy both the medicinal and recreational benefits of cannabinoids. Furthermore, Grapefruit’s Hourglass™ Topical Delivery Cream offers cannabis users a heretofore unattainable level of discretion and anonymity. For example, fellow airline, train or ship passengers, concert goers, and movie or theatre attendees will not be able to detect any telltale odors normally associated with cannabis use.”
