The acquisition includes six dispensary licenses, five of which are currently operational and located in the cities of Addison, Buchanan, Camden, Edmore, and Morenci. The addition of Pinnacle expands TerrAscend’s retail footprint to 17 in Michigan and 32 nationwide.
“We are excited to strengthen our Michigan footprint with the acquisition of Pinnacle,” said Jason Wild, Executive Chairman of TerrAscend. “This acquisition strategically expands our presence along Michigan’s border, to areas that previously had limited access to Gage and Cookies branded retail locations and products.

The Company intends to rebrand each of the newly acquired dispensaries under either the Gage or Cookies retail brand. Each dispensary will carry the entire selection of Cookies and Gage branded products including, but not limited to Cookies, Lemonnade, Runtz, PowerzzzUp, Minntz and Grandiflora lines.
