TORONTO, June 22, 2023  — Hempsana Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “Hempsana”) today announced first quarter financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2023.

Randy Ko, Hempsana’s CEO commented: “Hempsana continues to expand its innovative product offerings to consumers across Canada with the launch of seven new SKU’s from ufeelu and two new brands: Caviar Gold and Craft Bangers. We believe that Caviar Gold and Craft Bangers will provide great dried flower options that have high THC potency (25+%) combined with high terpene profiles (4+%). We believe we have the opportunity to dominate the infused pre-roll market as we use a patented process to infuse our pre-rolls and moonrocks that provides consumers a consistent smoking experience as the patented process uniformly distributes the distillate into the flower. The main complaint that consumers have in the market today is that the infused pre-rolls do not burn consistently and that is what we have focused on, bringing to market superior infused pre-roll quality that allow users to enjoy a smooth and consistent smoking session just as they do with non-infused pre-rolls.”
