“It’s been exciting to watch the Oklahoma cannabis market take off. With its thriving retail landscape and growing consumer base, we’re confident Old Pal will be well positioned to support patients needs and our partners.” Rusty Wilenkin, Old Pal CEO + Co-founder.
Andrew Berman, former CEO of Harborside,Inc., a top dispensary in California, brought the parties together and acted as a strategic advisor to both sides. “Old Pal is one of the great brands to emerge from California since adult use began in 2018 – it’s a brand I got to know quite well while running Harborside,” said Berman. “Its focus on delivering quality cannabis at a fair price always creates a positive experience for its customers. This value proposition, combined with Globus’ deep understanding of the Oklahoma market, will be a powerful combination serving Oklahoma’s cannabis community and patients.”
Old Pal launched in April of 2018 with the promise of providing classic shareable cannabis to the masses. Since then, the brand has become a household name in California and Nevada. Old Pal has grown to a top selling brand in both markets, currently holding 16% of total cannabis market sales in NV, while in CA the brand ranks second place for flower sales by unit volume, both according to BDS Analytics data from September 2020.
Globus Distribution’s goal is to provide simple and turnkey solutions for brands like Old Pal to expand into the Oklahoma market and beyond as Globus continues to grow their licensing footprint in other states. This will allow national brands to accelerate their expansion by working with one partner like Globus in multiple states.
“Our team is extremely selective about who we work with and we are excited to bring quality Old Pal products to the Oklahoma’s medical marijuana patients,” said Heather Fry,
