The Cannabist Company Expands Retail and Wholesale Partnership with Rapidly Growing Vaporizer Brand, Airo

Airo Brands Proprietary Vaporizers and One-of-a-kind Oils Now Available at All Five West Virginia Cannabist Locations

The Cannabist Company Holdings Inc. (NEO: CBST) (OTCQX: CBSTF) (FSE: 3LP) (“The Cannabist Company” or the “Company”), one of the largest and most experienced cultivators, manufacturers and retailers of cannabis products in the U.S., announced today an expansion of its partnership with Airo Brands, an industry-leading, multi-state cannabis company focused on proprietary, cutting-edge vapor delivery systems and one-of-a-kind oils.

The partnership expansion is the first to introduce Airo’s unparalleled vaporizing experience to West Virginia through the Company’s five Cannabist dispensaries. Airo is also available through the Company’s wholesale channels. The vape brand will continue to roll out across the Company’s dispensary and wholesale network in markets such as Virginia and Pennsylvania over the next few months, pending regulatory approval. The Cannabist Company first teamed up with Airo in November of 2023 in Delaware, with its cutting-edge vaporizers and oils quickly becoming top-selling products at Cannabist locations state-wide.

“Our partnership with Airo has been extremely successful in Delaware so far, and our customers are really enjoying the unique experience while using the products. We couldn’t be more excited to expand this relationship into West Virginia and are looking forward to continued growth and collaboration with the dynamic Airo team,” said Volley Hayhurst, VP, Operations, The Cannabist Company. “Industry collaborations, like Airo, are great examples of how we are increasing the utilization of our state-of-the-art cultivation and manufacturing facilities, building our wholesale reach, and bringing the best and broadest range of products possible to our patients.”

“We’re thrilled to expand our reach into the West Virginia market thanks to this collaboration,” said Richard Yost, CEO, Airo Brands. “The Cannabist Company’s quality cultivation facilities, efficiency, and strong retail and wholesale footprint are allowing us to maintain our product growth strategy and commitment to elevating the cannabis experience for customers and patients by providing unique and high-quality vape products.”
