Company Enters Mature Colorado Cannabis Market with High Quality, Award-Winning Product Line

WAKEFIELD, Mass., March 2, 2020 /CNW/ -- Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CURA) (OTCQX: CURLF) ("Curaleaf" or the "Company"), a leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the United States, will acquire BlueKudu, a Colorado-based producer of premium cannabis chocolates and gummies.

Founded in 2011, BlueKudu is one of Colorado's oldest and most experienced edible manufacturers.

"Colorado is the second largest cannabis market in the US, with sales surpassing $1.7 billion in 2019," said Joe Lusardi, Chief Executive Officer of Curaleaf. "With over eight years of operating history, BlueKudu has developed a strong brand for customers seeking premium cannabis products in a diverse range of flavors and formulations. BlueKudu's established production and distribution capabilities will allow Curaleaf to seamlessly enter the market and expand the Select brand presence in the state of Colorado."

With delicious combinations such as Toffee + Almond Milk Chocolate and Coffee + Dark Chocolate, BlueKudu has developed an award-winning product line that is currently available in over 200 retail locations throughout Colorado.
