This opportunity provides Delta 9 access to the MHA membership to canvass and develop interest in establishing cannabis retail outlets and selling Delta 9 cannabis products on site in Manitoba hotels. Delta 9 will offer its expertise in the cannabis sector in various ways including educational sessions, cannabis point-of-sale systems, supply chain and product selection, marketing, procurement, branding and assistance in product ordering to build Delta 9’s brand as the partner of choice for cannabis in Manitoba hotels.
“We look forward to working with a Manitoba company like Delta 9 to help our members succeed in this new area of business.” said Scott Jocelyn, MHA President & CEO. “While not all hotels in Manitoba will be interested in retailing cannabis, for some of our members this will be a great opportunity to add to the mix of goods and services they provide in their communities.”
