“We have successfully continued to build our business around our HoneyStick brand of Vaporizers, which are engineered for use with Cannabis oils and concentrates. We also saw growth in our private label business, directed to dispensaries and extractors of the same product classes,” said Kevin Frija, CEO of VPR Brands. “Increased sales of our own branded products helped grow our margins in the second quarter.”
“In the second quarter of 2017, VPR Brands was able to add new distribution channels, increase its private label business, and greatly grow the HoneyStick brand of vape products in terms of its sales and brand awareness. This is reflected in VPR Brands’ increased revenues for the second quarter. We continue to innovate and capitalize on opportunities within the Vape and Cannabis markets,” said Dan Hoff COO of VPR Brands.
Although our sales are not segregated by brand or product category, our primary revenue source is from vaporization devices specifically created for use with medical cannabis and recreational marijuana. These devices are specifically created for use with extract oils and concentrates which are vaped, providing optimal results and the best experience for patients and recreational users. Vaporizers are far more convenient and discrete compared to traditional cannabis use methods. These units are compact, easy to carry and concealable. Modern cannabis vaporizers do not emit distinct and lingering odors that are affiliated with traditional marijuana use. We believe that portable vaporizers are the fastest growing delivery mechanism for marijuana. Our team is currently working with other market leaders within the cannabis growth and extraction industries to innovate and further educate the marketplace on its advantages.
