New York, New York, UNITED STATES


MIAMI, April 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ayr Wellness Inc. (CSE: AYR.A, OTCQX: AYRWF) (“Ayr” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated U.S. multi-state cannabis operator (“MSO”), today announced it has expanded its extensive product portfolio available at Liberty Health Sciences (“Liberty”) dispensaries statewide in Florida with the addition of its premium flower brand, Kynd.

Sales of Kynd began this week across Liberty’s 45-dispensary footprint. The initial launch includes six strain offerings, namely “Blueberry Headband,” “Extraterrestrial Bananas,” “True OG,” “Purple Trainwreck,” “Polyjuice #4,” and “Lemon Haze.”

“This launch marks our latest effort to bring our national power brands to each of our markets,” said Jonathan Sandelman, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Ayr. “This is a major step in expanding our high-quality flower offerings in Florida, following our launches of Entourage, Origyn Extracts, Secret Orchard, and Sun Gems over the past nine months. We remain committed to increasing the variety of high-quality products available to our patients across our 45-store footprint.”

“Kynd’s artisanal flower is meticulously crafted in small batches by highly-trained and passionate specialists, in order to deliver world-class strains that are pure, potent, and consistent,” said Jeff Finnerty, SVP of Marketing at Ayr Wellness. “Florida patients deserve high-quality whole flower experiences and will now have a variety of Kynd offerings to choose from.”

Kynd is also sold in Nevada and Arizona, in Ayr-owned and 3rd party retail locations. The Company plans to introduce Kynd in additional key markets throughout 2022.

The Florida medical marijuana market continues to show robust growth, with the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use reporting over 707,933 registered patients as of April 15, 2022.
