Some patients in Ontario will be able to receive their pot on the same day if they order from Entourage Health Corp. (TSX-V: ENTG) (OTCQX: ETRGF) (FSE: 4WE)’s Starseed Medicinal platform.
On Wednesday, leading cannabis operators Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (TSX: FAF) (OTCQX: FFLWF) and Entourage announced they signed an agreement where Fire & Flower subsidiary Pineapple Express Delivery Inc. will offer same-day delivery services for Entourage patients in certain regions in Ontario.
As of mid-May, patients signed up to the platform Starseed Medicinal Inc. will be able to pick a same-day delivery option and then receive real-time tracking notifications by text message to get their products delivered.
Fire & Flower CEO Trevor Fencott said the company has over 40,000 deliveries per month.
“We continue to add additional value to our recent acquisition of Pineapple Express as we deepen our relationships with key licensed producer partners both in the recreational and medical delivery channels such as Entourage and its Starseed Medicinal network,” Fencott said.
Fire & Flower stock went up by 3.61 per cent on Wednesday to $3.12 on the Toronto Securities Exchange.
Entourage’s adult-use product portfolio includes Color Cannabis, Saturday Cannabis and Royal City Cannabis Co. The company also has supply agreements with Shoppers Drug Mart and is the exclusive Canadian producer and distributor of Mary’s Medicinals.
Entourage is the publicly-traded company of Entourage Brands Corp. –formerly WeedMD RX Inc.– and CannTx Life Sciences Inc.
“As leaders in medical and adult-use markets, we understand the importance of timely and consistent access to quality-crafted cannabis products,” CEO George Scorsis said.
“Pineapple Express with its proprietary software, combined with its extensive mobile operations and experienced focus on customer service were key factors in establishing this partnership to provide upgraded services to our patients.”
Entourage stock stayed flat on Wednesday at $0.70 on the Canadian Venture Exchange.
