Having just announced our ninth Brand Partnership, we’re looking forward to leveraging Kellen’s proven expertise in business development as we continue to grow our Brand Partner network in Nevada and beyond."

"I believe Flower One’s execution is second to none," O'Keefe said. "The company has proven its ability to not only leverage its extensive commercial agriculture experience, but also insert best-in-class processing and manufacturing. From a seed-to-shelf perspective, Flower One has established an industry-first, turnkey solution for cannabis brands seeking access to consistent and reliable high-quality cannabis."
