Organigram will offer its products as part of Feather Company vapes this fall, making it likely the first LP to announce its vape-product plans. The Organigram/Feather vapes will come in three different systems: closed-system vapes (such as pod systems), disposable vape pens, and 510-thread compatible cartridges like those popular on the illicit market.

- In perhaps the first white-label deal of the coming legalization 2.0, not-licensed company Ace Valley (an offshoot of an Ontario brewery called Ace Hill) partnered with extractor MediPharm Labs to launch a line of vaporizers. All production and sales will be handled by MediPharm, while Ace Valley will design all branding and marketing. This is similar to a dry-flower deal Ace Valley already has with Flowr.

- Italy announced plans to import 400 kilograms of MED over two years and called for tenders. Aurora won the last such call.
- Aurora’s Cam Battley expects much of his company’s product will be for export to Europe. Other LPs are equally enthusiastic about the prospect of dominating international cannabis, but they’ll face bans on REC exporting/importing, UN uneasiness, and critics claiming their optimism is unfounded.
