West Virginia is expanding its cannabis market with the introduction of a new partnership for the state, Trulieve & SLANG.
Trulieve, one of the largest operating cannabis seed-to-sale companies, has partnered with SLANG in other states, and seen successes in doing so.
Currently, there are several thousand patients approved for medical marijuana in West Virginia, and this partnership suggests many more thousands will be on their way soon.
In this article, we’ll cover the new partnership for Trulieve & SLANG, what it will bring to the state, and why it matters for West Virginia cannabis!
What Does the Trulieve SLANG Partnership Mean for West Virginia Medical Marijuana?
Trulieve is the largest seed-to-sale company out there in the cannabis space.
With its recent acquisition of Harvest Health & Recreation Inc., the Florida based company Trulieve now has around 150 retail locations in 11 states, over 3 million square feet of cultivation space, and 8,500 employees.
You could say Trulieve is like the Amazon of cannabis, growing larger and more expansive along its way to market dominance.
For Trulieve to move and operate within a new state, there obviously needs to be a market demand for it to be profitable, and Trulieve apparently sees a strong future in the West Virginia cannabis market.
With several thousand patients already registered for medical marijuana, and possible recreational legalization on the table of discussion for 2022, West Virginia is poised to be a new market that Trulieve is likely wanting to get into, before the getting is good.
Partnering with SLANG says a lot for the cannabis giant, because while Trulieve might be the largest seed-to-sale cannabis company, SLANG is a global leader in cannabis consumer packaged goods.
Trulieve can grow, SLANG can process and box, and consumers will end up with high-quality cannabis products that capture the efficiency and price point of large scale manufacturing and processing.
What the Partnership Says about the West Virginia Cannabis Market
Obviously, companies that move to partner or capture portions of a market, believe there to be a profitable market to capture.
So it goes without saying that both Trulieve and SLANG are looking at West Virginia with high hopes, and probably even higher profit margins.
SLANG offers a wide variety of products and packaging, and Trulieve offers the big-boy business model of large-scale cannabis cultivation and sales.
A move to a relatively new cannabis market is neither a jump in hopes of profitability, nor is it a chance to capture a new market before it becomes available, it’s a smart decision to solidify their position as a provider of West Virginia cannabis products.
Ultimately, while partnerships like this can sometimes create stronghold monopolies for smaller states, as long as prices remain affordable and the market stays competitive, there will still be a lot of room for cannabis businesses of all sizes to enter the market.
