"Our ongoing journey to transform Lifeist into a diversified wellness company with high-margin business units remains on track," stated Meni Morim, CEO of Lifeist. "In our second quarter results, we experienced growth across all our key metrics, including achieving another historic high gross profit. Though the path has been challenging, we are making continuous improvements and efficiencies are having an impact as we move toward our goal of profitability and positive cash flow."

"The growth in second quarter 2023 revenue was led by our Aus Vapes business which experienced a significant rebound in revenue having introduced new product categories, a new marketing strategy, and successfully relocated warehouse operations into a larger and more modern facility improving efficiencies after devastating spring floods. In addition, both of our main wellness businesses CannMart and Mikra continue to deliver solid results. CannMart has successfully established itself a leading cannabis brand within a short span of two years. Through innovation, strategic partnerships with provincial buyers, and unwavering support from our retailers, we are driving distribution and enhanced sell-through of our expanding portfolio of premium and mid-range concentrate products."
