Nutritional High Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement With Extract Solutions

TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nutritional High International Inc. ("Nutritional High" or the "Company") (CSE: EAT, OTCQB: SPLIF) is pleased to announce an exclusive distribution relationship in California with Extract Solutions, Inc. (“Extract Solutions”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Calyx Brands (“Calyx”).

Under the one-year, auto-renewable agreement effective immediately, Calyx will distribute the manufacturer’s Hella Dank brand of ice-water hashish concentrates.  According to data published by BDS Analytics*, sales of solvent-free concentrates have exploded, reflecting consumer demand for healthier products. For example, rosin and live resin have grown by 190% and 284% respectively year over year, while concentrates that utilize hydrocarbon extraction methods such as shatter and wax have fallen by 37% and 33% year over year respectively. Hella Dank products are made exclusively through a clean, solvent-free process using water, ice and minimal agitation, and have generated strong initial sales orders from top retailers statewide.

“We only make products in a few categories, where we strive to be the absolute best,” said Igor Ainbinder, CEO of Extract Solutions, the manufacturer of Hella Dank brand. “Above everything else, we are an ice water hashish company. There are no additives or chemicals used in any part of the process. Our ingredients are simple: water, ice, sustainably grown cannabis and a high degree of skilled craftsmanship.”

Hella Dank produces an artisanal five-star liquid grade melt hashish as well as a five-star hashish rosin. They also produce a four-star bubble grade hashish, to meet distinctive consumer needs and price points.

“We’re seeing a range of consumers embrace Hella Dank artisanal hashish products,” said Dakota Sullivan, CEO of Calyx Brands. “Younger consumers who are comfortable with dabbing and own a rig are flocking to Hella Dank’s beautiful five-star hashish and rosin. Older consumers looking to spice up their enjoyment of smoking are adding Hella Dank’s four-star bubble grade hashish on top of a bowl of flowers.”

Hella Dank is currently available at select premium dispensaries throughout California and will be exhibiting at the Calyx Brand’s booth at Hall of Flowers in Santa Rosa.
