“Since announcing our brand partnership strategy earlier this year, we continue to attract some of the most exciting and unique brands in the space,” said Gary Santo, CEO of TILT Holdings. “1906 marks another stellar addition to our growing roster of brand partners, and their willingness to enter into multiple markets with us reinforces the value proposition we offer our partners as well as 1906’s faith and trust in TILT’s ability to deliver. Our team continues to perform at a high level, and as we seek to create value for our shareholders, I could not be more proud of our ability to execute.”

“1906 is committed to making cannabis accessible, easy and unintimidating for all users. We’re thrilled to join forces with a partner who has the expertise and operational systems to help us reach more patients as we continue our eastward expansion,” says 1906 Co-founder and CEO Peter Barsoom. “TILT has brought a host of impressive brands to the marketplace—they have what it takes to help us scale production and distribution in key states.”
