(MRMD:OTCQX) (the “Company” or “MariMed”), a leading multi-state cannabis and hemp operator focused on health and wellness, is pleased to announce that its award-winning brands Betty's Eddies and Kalm Fusion are now available in Puerto Rico’s medical cannabis program.

Marni Meistrell, Co-founder of Tropizen said, “We are excited for the opportunity to offer MariMed’s proprietary, high-quality products that allow patients to dose in a way that is precisely suited for their health and wellness.

Containing full spectrum cannabis oil, they are available in a variety of flavors, including berry, orange, lemon, lime, grape, and peach mango.
Kalm Fusion is a brand of lower-dose cannabis infused products including “Chewable Tablets” and “Powdered Drink Mix” containing THC, CBD, and 1:1 formulations that allow patients the flexibility to conveniently and dependably choose their desired intake. Containing no artificial flavors or colors, Kalm Fusion tablets come in a variety of flavors like black cherry, orange cream, fruit punch, pineapple and mint.
