- Retail subsidiary, Oasis Cannabis, achieved a 110.2% increase in net revenue year-over-year, alongside a 131.9% increase in the number of transactions processed. Gross margin for the dispensary was 48.1%.
- Oasis Cannabis achieved its highest single-day net revenue on 4/20 at $96,791.
- Branded wholesale division, City Trees, recorded a 188.7% increase in year-over-year net revenue, achieving a second record month in a row, and a 47.8% gross margin.
- The Company finalized its plans to bring City Trees products to New Mexico through a collaborative partnership with Albuquerque-based Herbal Edibles Inc. This partnership marks the Company’s first market entry outside of Nevada. The Company also plans to bring Herbal Edibles’ gourmet, organic, non-GMO edible products to Nevada later in 2021.
The Company’s Nevada retail and wholesale subsidiaries both achieved their highest revenue month to date in April 2021 for the second month in a row. At the Company’s dispensary, Oasis Cannabis, net revenue increased by more than 110% year over year, driven by a 131.9% increase in the number of transactions processed. The 4/20 cannabis “holiday” also marked the single highest revenue day for the dispensary, achieving $96,791 in net revenue at a 51.9% gross margin with over 1100 transactions. “Between increasing vaccination rates among locals, tourists making their return, and our team operating at their best, we’re seeing Oasis perform at its highest level ever.” noted general manager Lissa Lawatsch.
The Company’s manufacturing and wholesale division, City Trees, also achieved record revenue in the month of April 2021, with its best performance in the company’s history. The brand sold and shipped $640,390 in products – a 188.7% increase in revenue year-over-year, and a 27.5% increase over the previous month. This result was achieved in part by increasingly efficient production standards that allowed the brand to ship over 12,900 grams of bulk THC distillate and 39,000 units of its finished products in the month of April. The brand continues to grow in popularity across Nevada, seeing rapid sell-through of its products at its dispensary partners. Driven by these successes, the Company finalized its arrangements with Herbal Edibles Inc. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and its products will be released into the market in May 2021, starting with three of its award-winning tinctures. “The New Mexico cannabis market is primed to grow exponentially in the coming year,” noted Company President & COO Andrew Glashow. “We believe the state’s well-established medical program will bloom into a thriving adult-use market as well, and we’re excited to have products of our outstanding caliber made available to the good people there.” The Company expects City Trees to continue growing its foothold in the region through innovative product development and uniquely high quality and consistency.
