In concurrent news, the Company’s flagship Dama Brand premium cannabis flower product team today announced the introduction of Dama Select specialty strains. The development team recognized that no two cannabis farms are alike and applied their extensive experience and attention to detail to focus on what makes a high-quality cannabis flower.
