“The Company has completely shifted its focus to service the cannabis sector and is increasing its investment into our award winning HONEYSTICK brand,” said Kevin Frija, CEO of VPR Brands, LP. “We’re excited about our new trajectory and believe that our focus on the HONEYSTICK brand will lead to increased sales of our branded products, which should translate into increased margins and ultimately, profitability.”

"The first quarter was a true transitional quarter, where the Company made the switch from distributing popular vaporizer brands and liquids, to building, expanding, and focusing on the HONEYSTICK brand and further expanding its presence in the cannabis space. I believe this transition was in the long term best interest of VPR Brands LP and look forward to the further emergence and expansion of the HONEYSTICK brand as well as our portfolio of cannabis business," said Dan Hoff, COO of VPR Brands, LP.

Although our sales are not segregated by brand or product category, our primary revenue source is from vaporization devices specifically created for use with medical cannabis and recreational marijuana. These devices are specifically created for use with extract oils and concentrates which are vaped, providing optimal results and the best experience for patients and recreational users. Vaporizers are far more convenient and discrete compared to traditional cannabis use methods. These units are compact, easy to carry and concealable. Modern cannabis vaporizers do not emit

Our team is currently working with other market leaders within cannabis growth and extraction to innovate and further educate the marketplace on its advantages.
