Luff Enterprises Launches National E-commerce Platform Under Herbal Dispatch Brand

Vancouver, British Columbia – Luff Enterprises Ltd., (CSE: LUFF) (“LUFF” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced sales on its recently acquired cannabis marketplace herbaldispatch.com (“Herbal Dispatch”).

LUFF has engaged over 50 licensed producers as potential suppliers with over 30 of them qualified as approved vendors with 127 SKUs approved for sale on the marketplace. It is expected that another 10 vendors and 170 SKUs will be added to the site in the coming weeks making Herbal Dispatch already one of the largest purveyors of medical cannabis products in Canada.

Medical cannabis sales in Canada show a lot of promise, with Health Canada reporting 257,059 registered medical patients at the end of December 31, 2021. They placed a total of 859,581 orders in the same year1 . Veterans Affairs Canada also reported annual medical cannabis coverage for veterans totalling $119,000,000 in fiscal 2020-2021 with it expected to grow to $321,500,000 by fiscal 2025-20262 . The Company believes its capital-lean and highly-scalable business model will capture a meaningful portion of this market.

LUFF CEO, Philip Campbell commented, “This marks an incredibly important milestone for LUFF, with Herbal Dispatch officially commencing sales in our home market of Canada. The pre-registration campaign has been overwhelmingly positive with over 32,000 engaged email recipients, 6,500 new unique accounts, and almost 1,000 members pre-registered and eligible to purchase from the site. We are excited to see strong early momentum in our customer registration. With the preliminary product offering available on September 27, 2022, we expect this to accelerate further.”
