SpeakEasy Announces Strategic Plan to Release Multiple Consumer Brands Over the Next 12 Months

SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd., a holder of a federal licence to cultivate, process, and sell cannabis under the Cannabis Act is pleased to announce it has created a strategic plan to release multiple consumer-facing brands over the next 12 months. The brands will represent SpeakEasy’s agricultural foundation and core principles – product quality, respecting the culture and achieving a competitive price point that will rival our competitors and the black market.(1)

Founder Marc Geen, states, “We’re excited about taking the next step with our business, after receiving the sales licence for extracts in early September 2021, the Company has started the brand-budding journey. We’re looking forward to releasing brands that tell the story of authenticity within an emerging industry that is dominated by too many faceless offerings and has yet to really capture the true cannabis enthusiast from the black market.”

Brand Positioning
Speakeasy invested in a comprehensive discovery study to identify under-served areas of the market. The study brought back 3 key points that were consistent across the nation. Simply stated – consumers want real “premium” quality, consistent quality and availability, and economically priced options. These 3 key points were identified as the most important areas that are not being capitalized on with the current offerings.

Using data collected from the market, SpeakEasy was able to establish each of its upcoming brand’s position in the recreational market. This research reinforces the Company’s agricultural strategies from day one – greenhouse products will serve middle market consumers and it is a segment that is currently saturated.

Brand Launch Strategy
SpeakEasy has been continually dedicating time and resources to ensure the Company’s brands have a successful launch across Canada. Recently, the Company hired a Manager of Marketing and Sales who comes from a successful background of marketing and sales for one of the largest live entertainment companies in Western Canada. LOI’s have also been signed with a National Sales Teams that will grant SpeakEasy access to strong market knowledge, existing relationships, and front of line sales support. Additionally, the team brings with them in depth relationships that will make up the complete marketing mix of – in store, online digital, public relations, and events, while being rooted in culture.

Three Distinct Market Segments that Offer the Company Immediate Opportunity in the Canadian Cannabis Industry

Brand Opportunity One: High-End Craft Indoor Flower
The first brand will enter the market with 4 high THC legacy strains. This brand narrative highlights SpeakEasy’s deep roots embedded in “BC Bud”. Through the rigorous strain selection process, we have been able to achieve THC levels of over 25%. It’s a common goal between SpeakEasy’s growers to achieve up to 30 % THC levels with select strains.

Brand Opportunity Two: Alive Extracts
The second brand will be built around SpeakEasy’s robust outdoor supply chain to create products that will compete with Cannabis 2.0 pricing in the lucrative and expanding extract market. These products will be heavily targeted to the expanding dab culture and pertain to products offering such as live resin Vape, live resin sugar, terp sauce, diamonds and other forms of high THC extracts.

Brand Three: Economically Priced Flower & Extracts
Our third brand will take advantage of favorable growing conditions and being one of the largest outdoor licenced growing facilities in Canada. The brand will enter the market with 3 products: dried flower, pre-rolls and ratio-based extracts. Each product will be competitively priced.

Founder Marc Geen further states, “We understand that there are still huge gaps in product offerings and some sections of the industry have yet to emerge. While the industry talks about a glut of product, we see this as a result of poor quality, backlog of stale products, and lack of product innovation. This is ‘Cannabis 2.0’, and since day one, we have always stated that this is an industry that’s no different than wine; it’s agriculture as an art.”
