Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA


PHOENIX, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TILT Holdings Inc. (“TILT” or the “Company”) (NEO: TILT) (OTCQX: TLLTF), a global provider of cannabis business solutions that include inhalation technologies, cultivation, manufacturing, processing, brand development and retail, today announced the Pennsylvania launch of “H” by Ricky Williams, the former NFL player’s medical marijuana brand. The purpose-driven brand will be distributed to dispensaries throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for medical marijuana patients through TILT subsidiary Standard Farms.

Motivated by his own personal journey with medical marijuana and healing, Williams’ brand, more widely known as Highsman, launched in November 2021 to inspire greatness and promote wellness in athletes and sports fans. The brand is now available in five states with Pennsylvania marking its second state launch in partnership with TILT. The initial product collection offering includes flower 8ths in:

  • Pregame, energizing and attention-grabbing sativas;
  • Halftime, balanced and restorative hybrids; and
  • Postgame, restful and recovery-focused indicas.

“This brand line, more specifically marijuana, has profoundly and positively impacted my life,” said Ricky Williams, founder of “H” by Ricky Williams. “I introduced these products to break through the stigma of marijuana and improve access to those seeking to be the best versions of themselves. Thanks to our partnership with TILT, we can introduce even more patients to the benefits and healing properties of medical marijuana through our brand.”

“TILT’s differentiated brand-partner model allows us to collaborate with some of the most innovative and impactful brands in the U.S. and introduce them to new markets,” said Gary Santo, Chief Executive Officer of TILT. “I am proud to be working with Ricky to bring this authentic brand to patients in Pennsylvania.”
