Lifeist Wellness Inc. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, CannMart Inc., has started an agreement with SQDC, the exclusive retail distributor in the province of Quebec. SQDC will offer six Cannabis edible products offered by CannMart and will be one of the principal distributors of edible cannabis products in the province of Quebec.
The purchase order from the SQDC is for six Rilaxe branded edibles products spanning full-spectrum CBD to 2:1 (CBD:THC) formulations including infused baked beets, dried cauliflower, and dried figs.
