Trulieve Cannabis Corp. expanded its partnership with Connected Cannabis Co., in which Trulieve will be the exclusive producer, processor and retailer of Connected-branded products throughout Florida.
Connected-branded products will be available later this year exclusively at Trulieve’s 111 Florida dispensaries. Trulieve already partners with Connected in Arizona.
“Trulieve is excited about expanding our partnership with Connected as we continue seeking ways to benefit our patients,” said Kim Rivers, CEO of Trulieve. “Connected maintains a portfolio of proprietary top-shelf strains that our customers and patients desire in other markets and we anticipate a similar response in Florida.”
Connected has been building a proprietary genetics portfolio of premium strains and meticulously cultivating cannabis at scale since 2009. With more than a decade of industry experience, it is known as a leading brand in the cannabis space and a pioneer in the industry.
“We’re proud to expand our successful partnership with Trulieve to bring our award-winning Connected and Alien Labs products to the East Coast,” said Caleb Counts, co-founder of Connected.
“We value their leadership as the top operator in the state and share their commitment to providing customers with the best products possible,” added Sam Ghods, CEO of Connected.
Trulieve offers a large selection of THC and CBD products in a variety of delivery methods, including edibles, smokable flower, concentrates, tinctures, topical creams, vaporizers and more. Trulieve also offers statewide home delivery, convenient online ordering and in-store pickup.
Trulieve operates in 11 states and is poised for accelerated growth and expansion, building scale in retail and distribution in new and existing markets through its hub strategy.
