Advanced Container Technologies, Inc. Strikes Deal with Grassfire Distro

Wednesday, 24. February 2021 15:00

CORONA, Calif., Feb. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Container Technologies, Inc. (Ticker: OTC:ACTX), stated it entered into an agreement with Grassfire Distro. Under the terms of the agreement, Grassfire Distro will sell and distribute Advanced Container Technologies’ products in the state of Oklahoma.

Grassfire Distro is one of the leading providers of cannabis products and accessories in the state of Oklahoma. The company offers flower, pre-rolls, nutrients, and now the ACTX line of packaging, including exit bags, retail containers, and its patented Medtainer system.

Oklahoma is now the biggest medical marijuana market in the country on a per capita basis, according to Politico News. Sales in the state have quickly surpassed $1 billion since legalization, and about 10 percent of the state’s population have acquired medical marijuana cards over the last two years – by far the highest percent of any state in the nation.

To meet that demand, Oklahoma has more than 9,000 licensed marijuana businesses, including nearly 2,000 dispensaries and almost 6,000 grow operations. In comparison, Colorado—the country’s oldest recreational marijuana market, with a population almost 50 percent larger than Oklahoma—has barely half as many licensed dispensaries and less than 20 percent as many grow operations.

“What is happening in Oklahoma is almost unprecedented among the 35 states that have legalized marijuana in some form,” according to Politico. “Oklahoma’s program has generated a hefty amount of tax revenue while avoiding some of the pitfalls of more intensely regulated programs.”

Advanced Container Technologies, Inc. CEO Doug Heldoorn said he believes that the partnership with Grassfire Distro will lead to increased sales opportunities for the company. “Having our products offered through one of the largest and most respected distribution companies in the state is good for our business,” Mr. Heldoorn stated. “Since we offer products needed throughout the cannabis eco-system - from growers and distributors to dispensaries and consumers – we anticipate increased demand for our products throughout the Grassfire Distro network.”

ACTX sells a variety of packaging solutions for the cannabis industry, including the Medtainer – a unique, air-tight packaging system that features a built-in grinder. Originally engineered as a solution to grind and store medications for pediatric and geriatric patients, the Medtainer has now been adopted into diverse markets including culinary, cannabis, and veterinary medicine. The product is manufactured with FDA-approved medical grade plastics and is certified child resistant.
