Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – December 14, 2021) – INDVR Brands, Inc. (CSE: IDVR) (the “Company” or “INDVR Brands” or “INDVR“), a premier cannabis brand house and infused products producer, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Bhang Inc., a global cannabis CPG brand company with an award-winning portfolio of products. Management from both companies have collaborated to bring Bhang’s products initially to Colorado, then expand discussions around other available jurisdictions in the United States.
INDVR, through its relationship with Bronnor Corp., is one of Colorado’s premier Marijuana Infused Products producers, with a state-of-the-art, GMP-compliant, 25,000 square foot facility. Through INDVR’s partnership with Bronnor Corp., INDVR is currently manufacturing numerous SKUs across multiple product lines, including gummies, chocolates, vapes, tinctures, and pre-rolls.
Integrating Bhang’s well-recognized, industry-leading portfolio of products is a perfect synergy for Bronnor and INDVR. Bhang has delivered delicious, consistently-dosed and highly-awarded products to consumers in multiple U.S. states, Canada, and Europe for over a decade. Bhang’s iconic gourmet chocolates continue to be among the top-selling edibles internationally.
“We are thrilled to be working with Jamie and the entire Bhang team. Bhang’s products are widely recognized, including the #1 selling cannabis chocolate in Canada,” states INDVR CEO, Hugh Hempel.
Bhang CEO, Jamie L. Pearson, states, “Bhang was in Colorado for several years until a legislative change forced a pivot. Since we left, I’ve explored many opportunities and have patiently waited for the right fit. I am honoured to partner with Hugh and the INDVR team to bring Bhang products back to Colorado. Experiencing the sophistication and competency they bring to operating cannabis manufacturing and distribution made this an easy decision. Our two companies and teams complement each other well, and I’m excited to get going.”
Management anticipates production of Bhang SKUs to initiate in January and expects to report revenue figures generated from this strategic partnership in Q2 2022 financials.

Cannabis is legal in certain States in the United States (“U.S.”), however cannabis remains illegal under U.S. federal laws. INDVR Brands intends to conduct its U.S. cannabis operations in a manner consistent with the applicable State laws and in compliance with regulatory and licensing requirements applicable in the applicable State. However, the readers should be aware that any change in federal guidance on enforcement actions could adversely affect INDVR Brand’s ability to access private and public capital required in order to support continuing operations and its ability to operate in the U.S.
Unlike in Canada which has Federal legislation uniformly governing the cultivation, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis under the Cannabis Act (Federal), readers are cautioned that in the U.S., cannabis is largely regulated at the State level. Notwithstanding the permissive regulatory environment of medical cannabis at the State level, cannabis continues to be categorized as a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act in the U.S. and as such, cannabis-related practices or activities, including without limitation, the manufacture, importation, possession, use or distribution of cannabis are illegal under U.S. Federal law. Strict compliance with State laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve INDVR Brands of liability under the U.S. Federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any Federal proceeding, which may be brought against INDVR Brands. Any such proceedings brought against INDVR Brands may materially adversely affect its operations and financial performance in the U.S. market.
