LOS ANGELES, March 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PRESS RELEASE — Hightimes Holding Corp., the owner of High Times, has announced the signing of an LOI to acquire the California-based cannabis holding company Humboldt Heritage Inc. and its subsidiaries Humboldt Sun Growers Guild and Grateful Eight LLC.

This acquisition provides High Times with cannabis growing, processing and product manufacturing capabilities direct from the most coveted cannabis community in the world, Humboldt County.

« This allows our cultivators’ and their artisan brands unprecedented exposure to consumers as High Times reaches millions of people all over the world. The farmers in Humboldt Country have been leading parallel missions to High Times over the past 45 years, » said Barry Nachshon, CEO of Humboldt Heritage Inc. « Knowing that we will be part of the High Times family, as well as a key manufacturing and supply chain partner as the company enters the retail and delivery markets in California is very exciting for our team. »
