Stem Holdings, Inc. Opens its first Nevada Operation in North Las Vegas

BOCA RATON, January 8, 2019

– Stem Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: STMH CSE: STEM) (the "Company" or “Stem”), a vertically-integrated cannabis corporation with operations throughout the United States, is thrilled to announce that the Company is opening a cultivation facility in Nevada. Located just a few miles off the Las Vegas strip, the opening of the Nevada facility marks an important milestone for the Company.  

"We could not be more excited to launch our Nevada cultivation operation in Las Vegas,” explains Stem’s CEO Adam Berk. “We are very proud of the family of brands that we have developed under Stem’s umbrella, and are confident that our high-quality cannabis products will be well received in Nevada’s cannabis market.” 

One of the brands that Stem will introduce to Nevada is the historic TJ’s Gardens variety of cultivars. Utilizing an organic growing methodology known as regenerative no-till living soil, TJ’s Gardens is recognized as the Pacific Northwest’s premier cannabis cultivator. In addition to winning over 40 awards at numerous competitions throughout the past four years, one of TJ’s Gardens most recognizable strains, TJ’s Durban Poison, was named “Best Tasting Bud on Earth” by the renowned High Times Magazine. TJ’s Gardens will introduce its proprietary products to the Nevada market through the Travis x James brand, which produces high-end flower and great tasting vaporizers. 

Stem’s new Nevada facility includes space for cultivation, an edibles kitchen, and an extraction lab enabling Stem to introduce other flowers, edibles, and extracts brands into the Nevada market.  Through the Company’s state of the art kitchen, edibles under the Cannavore brand will be manufactured including, but not limited to, products such as caramels, gummies, hard candies, honey, and soda. Additionally, Yerba Buena flower will be used in Stem’s pre-rolled joint multipacks known as Fuegos. Also being introduced is Stem’s extracts line named Dose-ology, which will provide consumers with CBD and THC tinctures. 

“Opening our cultivation operations in North Las Vegas provides us with a unique opportunity to grow our brands,” says Stem’s National Director of Business Development, Dr. Geoff Ostrove. “Las Vegas receives over 44 million visitors each year. Combined with cannabis consumption from the local community, it is anticipated that Nevada is going to see over $500 million in retail sales each year from the cannabis industry. We plan on playing a major role in helping Stem reach its sales forecast by producing some of the most recognizable cannabis brands on the Las Vegas strip.”
