Kush Bottles, Inc., a dynamic sales platform that provides unique products and services for both businesses and consumers in the cannabis industry, announced today it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with JKD Brands to effectively penetrate the Alaska market. JKD Brands, an established distribution leader in the state of Alaska, will now be providing the cannabis market with Kush Bottles' premier products including child-resistant containers and bags, as well as all other packaging, labeling, and accessory options.
Alaska was the fourth state to commence legal adult-use cannabis sales. Ranked by CNBC as one of the top 10 most visited states in the U.S., Alaska has seen a surge of tourism recently, including an estimated 1.9 million out-of-state visitors coming to the state between May and September in 2016 – the highest visitor volume on record, according to the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, & Economic Development.
Given its geography, Alaska presents logistical challenges for most U.S. distribution companies. This new partnership enables both Kush Bottles and JKD Brands to remain dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, the highest quality products, innovative custom design solutions, and competitive prices while better servicing Alaska's burgeoning cannabis market.
Jim Dyer, Co-Founder of JKD Brands, commented, "We are delighted to partner with Kush Bottles as we grow market share in Alaska's underserved cannabis market. Kush Bottles is the nation's most respected provider of packaging, supplies and accessories to the cannabis industry and it brings nationwide strength and industry expertise to our collaboration. Furthermore, Kush Bottles' recent additions of CMP Wellness and Trinity Terpenes give JKD Brands access to a wider array of top quality products. We are excited to launch this partnership and provide premium quality cannabis products to the state of Alaska."
Nicholas Kovacevich, Chief Executive Officer of Kush Bottles, said, "We chose to partner with JKD Brands because their knowledge of the local Alaska regulatory, logistics, and market conditions is second to none. JKD's management team brings substantial local and state knowledge, with the support, capabilities and know-how of an established national partner. We are confident they are the right partners to extend Kush Bottles' reach into the Alaska market."
