SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vibe Bioscience Ltd. (CSE: VIBE) (the “Company” or “Vibe”), a vertically integrated cannabis retailer and cultivator, today announced that it has been granted a delivery license by and for the City of Sacramento, California, allowing Vibe to deliver cannabis products to California’s Central Valley. The Company plans to launch its delivery service on Friday, June 7, 2019.
“At Vibe, we are on a mission to provide convenient and easy distribution of legal cannabis products to improve the Vibe by California™ customer experience.

Vibe has commenced a two-phase capital upgrade of the recently acquired Alpine facilities and operations in Sacramento, aimed to increase cultivation capacity, as well as improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the cultivation process. In addition, the improvements are expected to enhance the customer retail experience by reconfiguring the product pick-up area for online and mobile orders, which will help to reduce customer wait times.

Unlike in Canada which has Federal legislation uniformly governing the cultivation, distribution, sale and possession of medical cannabis under the Cannabis Act (Federal), readers are cautioned that in the U.S., cannabis is largely regulated at the State level. To the knowledge of Vibe Bioscience Ltd., there are to date a total of 33 states, plus the District of Columbia, that have legalized cannabis in some form. Notwithstanding the permissive regulatory environment of medical cannabis at the State level, cannabis continues to be categorized as a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act in the U.S. and as such, cannabis-related practices or activities, including without limitation, the manufacture, importation, possession, use or distribution of cannabis are illegal under U.S. Federal law. Strict compliance with State laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve Vibe Bioscience Ltd. of liability under the U.S. Federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any Federal proceeding, which may be brought against Vibe Bioscience Ltd. Any such proceedings brought against Vibe Bioscience Ltd. may adversely affect its operations and financial performance.
