COAST announced its latest partnership with Midwest Food and Tobacco Group (MWFTG) on May 12 for a long-term distribution deal, which gives COAST the opportunity to expand beyond its strong West Coast footprint. COAST is currently distributed in 1,500 stores but expects this partnership to help it hit 5,000-plus by end of year.
“We had been searching for the right CBD smokes brand when we stumbled across COAST,” said MWFTG Director of Business Development Kurt Lauden. “We were instantly drawn to their team’s passion and drive. After working with them for the last few months we believe that COAST has the highest quality smokes on the market and the community and buzz they have created online is second to none.”
COAST was excited to work with the company whose distribution efforts span over 3,000 locations across South and North Dakota, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, where it sees an engaged and sophisticated customer base from its active Instagram account.
Founded in 2019, COAST is a California-grown organic smokes company offering users a guilt-free smoke break alternative. COAST works closely with third-generation hemp farmers in California to bring the highest quality, handcrafted hemp blends to its customers.
