SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nabis, the leading licensed cannabis wholesale platform in the world’s largest legal market, today announced an exclusive distribution partnership with California powerhouse StateHouse Holdings. The agreement, which involves StateHouse winding down its distribution arm while pivoting its logistics to Nabis’ technology-centered platform, is yet another example of the industry’s latest consolidation trend where self-distributed brands are outsourcing to simplify their business structures, increase efficiencies and prepare for scaling ahead.
“We have loved working with StateHouse Holdings for years, through the company’s iconic Harborside and Urbn Leaf retail locations, its standard-setting brands such as Loudpack and Sublime, and its deep and widespread commitment to California’s cannabis community,” said Jun S. Lee, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Nabis. “We are so honored to be a part of the StateHouse portfolio that will help drive the brands’ already impressive momentum, facilitate their scale and make it much easier for their 14 California dispensaries to consolidate orders and deliveries.”
As a part of the Nabis family, StateHouse will now leverage Nabis’ seamless logistics and warehousing capabilities in tandem with its unparalleled Marketplace technology enabling brands to communicate directly with wholesale buyers and track key data such as purchasing trends.
“For most modern cannabis brands, logistics and distribution, e.g. getting our finished products to retailers and on their shelves compliantly, is one of the most important priorities,” said Ed Schmults, CEO of StateHouse Holdings. “At the rate California’s cannabis industry is moving, brands need to realize efficiencies and best practices. We made the decision to work with businesses that will help us scale as fast as possible and we are confident our new partnership with Nabis will facilitate the important work ahead.”
The StateHouse brands now available on the Nabis Marketplace include pioneering labels like Loudpack and Kingpen, the world’s most awarded vape pen, in addition to consumer favorites Sublime, Key, Dimebag and Smokiez Edibles.
“Today’s cannabis industry owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to powerhouses like StateHouse,” said Nabis’ Lee. “These advocates played an essential role in the early days of cannabis activism, and my colleagues and I are incredibly excited to work alongside them as we move the global cannabis industry forward.”
