Zinger Key Points
  • Flora Growth and Me Raw forge a deal to distribute premium CBD and cannabis accessories in Poland.
  • The deal paves the way for Flora to potentially expand into neighboring EU countries.
  • The partnership sets the stage for reaching over 1.3 million legal cannabis users in Poland by 2026.

Flora Growth Corp. FLGC, a Canadian-based cannabis company and leader in consumer-packaged goods and pharmaceutical distribution announced a distribution deal with Me Raw Trade Ltd. This agreement marks Flora’s entry into the Polish market, leveraging Me Raw’s expertise in navigating the evolving cannabis laws within Poland and the broader EU landscape.

The partnership focuses on the distribution of JustCBD and Vessel brands, promising to enrich Poland’s retail landscape with high-end cannabis and CBD products.

Top cannabis brands will share valuable insights at the upcoming Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Florida on April 16-17. The two-day event that returns to The Diplomat Beach Resort will be a chance for entrepreneurs, both large and small, to network, learn and grow.

Rapid Entry Into Poland And Beyond

Under this exclusive arrangement, Me Raw will distribute these brands across Poland’s dispensaries, smoke shops and other retail outlets. The deal, valid for one year with an option to extend, also opens avenues for white-label services with top regional brands. 

Flora retains the right to widen Me Raw’s distribution to include several neighboring countries, enhancing its footprint in the rapidly growing EU cannabis market.

Expansive Potential

The significance of this venture underscores Poland’s emerging cannabis market. With legal cannabis users potentially reaching 1.3 million by 2026 and the medicinal market valued at €2 billion ($2.14 billion) by 2028, the timing seems precise. The region’s vape and vaporizer sector, alone poised for dramatic growth, further stresses the strategic merit of Flora’s expansion.

“Poland is an exceptionally fast-growing cannabis market in the EU and the country has gone to great lengths to become a leader in cannabis regulations in the region,” Clifford Starke, Flora’s CEO said in a press release. “Through Me Raw, we are engaged in conversations with large-scale retailers across the region who are now beginning to adopt a wide range of CBD products and cannabis accessories for which Flora Growth excels.”
