CANNABIS & LIQUOR WHOLESALE ("Wholesale" or "B2B")

1CM Inc has successfully opened 4 distribution centres that sell Cannabis, and/or Liquor products to other regulated licence holders. 1CM Inc is currently developing additional B2B distribution centres to achieve its market penetration goals.

Since opening in January 2023, the B2B Cannabis division has managed to achieve a wholesale penetration rate of 18.6%, as it supplies 33 of the 176 licenced cannabis retail stores in Saskatchewan. 

B2B Alcohol wholesale sales to on-site permit holders including hotels, and restaurants has also been growing rapidly and should contribute to revenue growth in the future.

1CM Inc has been successfully able to grow its B2B revenue in cannabis, alongside alcohol revenues and is working to drive additional revenue growth by increasing its B2B market share.

TECHNOLOGY ("One Cannabis Market" or "OCM" or "Tech")

1CM Inc realizes the value of technology in improving the customer service experience and democratizing vice markets. With OCM our tech stack has always prioritized the customer experience. To that effect we have developed the 1CM Loyalty app, now live on the Apple App and Google Play Stores. This technology provides customers with decentralized loyalty tokens and utilizes NFT based coupons within our age-gated member community. Providing marketing channels to otherwise inaccessible or underserved consumers like tobacco/nicotine consumers. OCM has also developed a B2B e-commerce portal for its wholesale customers to browse, add to cart, manage their available credit, make payments, and check out. As soon as orders are placed, customers are sent an ASN (advanced shipping notice) which includes the descriptions and embedded images of the products purchased. The ASN can be automatically uploaded to their POS (point of sale) system, all of which significantly reduces the effort spent ordering and improves the service experience.

Our vision is to be Canada's leading vice consumer staples retailer and wholesaler.
