VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announce its new cannabis wellness brand, Wright & Well, will be launching in Oregon. The products are intended to help relieve pain and anxiety, and will be sold through a distribution network of 400 retail cannabis stores. The initial nine products include THC and CBD oils, analgesic topical gel with THC and CBD, pain balm with THC and CBD, massage oil with THC and CBD, and three types of capsules containing THC and Ayurvedic herbal formulations, blended with ingredients that have historically been used to treat arthritis and chronic pain.
“We are excited by the imminent launch of the Wright & Well product line in Oregon,” says Yield Growth CEO Penny Green. “With our new cannabis products, our goal is to reach as many people as possible who are suffering from anxiety, stress and pain. We plan to use the upcoming Oregon launch as a blueprint to launch this brand in other markets such as California, Nevada and Canada.”
Wright & Well branded products will be launching in the legal cannabis market in Oregon, and will serve the growing number of wellness-minded people seeking new ways to take control of their health. Sophisticated, familiar and intelligent, the new brand aims to demystify the world of cannabis and make it more accessible for a wider audience.
Yield Growth worked with an expert branding agency over several months to position the new brand. Wright & Well invites users to experience a sense of freedom—by looking and feeling their best, and by deciding to purchase from a brand designed especially for them. Familiar, sophisticated and thoughtful, the name is a homonym: when spoken, it is “Right and Well,” which evokes the idea of proper and healthy. “Wright” means “a maker of,” so Wright & Well also means “a maker of health.” The brand intentionally stands out from the others in this space, and is designed to cultivate affinity with a new, savvy group of consumers, making the decision to purchase an easy one.
“Wright & Well will appeal to people who are a step ahead in finding health solutions that are right for them,” says Bhavna Solecki, Director of Product & Content at Urban Juve. “The products will stand out in the marketplace because they are the first to use our patent-pending hemp root oil. Hemp root oil complements and enhances our products with therapeutic healing compounds that provide superior transdermal absorption due to the unique terpene profile.” Wright & Well products are formulated with proprietary formulas using carefully selected cannabis strains, and the pain balm, topical gel and massage oil contain hemp root oil.
