Ten Breast Cancer Awareness Organizations Selected to Benefit from Local Donation Programs, Nine States Launch Limited-Edition “Pre-Rolls With a Purpose” and More

Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CURA) (OTCQX: CURLF) (“Curaleaf” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated multi-state cannabis operator in the United States today announced a month-long, multi-state fundraising initiative in which proceeds will benefit ten locally-run organizations across the U.S. that cater to the unique needs of the women and families affected by breast cancer.


Throughout October, over sixty Curaleaf dispensary locations will be matching customer donations and will sell limited-edition products, including special-edition batteries in New York and pink “Pre-Rolls with a Purpose” in Arizona , Connecticut , Florida , Massachusetts , Maryland , Maine , New Jersey , Nevada , and Oregon . Proceeds will go to ten state-run charity organizations that focus on breast cancer awareness, prevention, and patient services. These organizations directly impact thousands of women through several different initiatives related to the cause, including education, research, and prevention, and providing access to patient services, financial assistance, community support, and functional items that support physical and emotional recovery. In compliance with each state’s local regulations, specific product offerings and donation details vary by market. For a complete list of Curaleaf locations participating in the program, products available, and the local organizations each state will benefit, please visit https://curaleaf.com/blog/in-addition-to-the-ribbon .

“At Curaleaf, we are dedicated to always doing the right thing for each other, our customers, and our communities. We have a bias for action and agility, and we celebrate the people who step up with determination and urgency to overcome obstacles and move us forward. The ten local organizations that we’ve selected to support this month embody the same values and are capable of making a major impact in our communities,” said Khadijah Tribble , Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility at Curaleaf. “We are proud to honor our everlasting commitment to the fighters, the survivors, those at risk and those we’ve lost to breast cancer.”

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, aside from skin cancers. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer throughout her lifetime.

Curaleaf strives to provide compassionate guidance for patients and customers who make cannabis part of their health and wellness journeys with the goal of pairing the right products with the right people, so that everyone may consume cannabis with ease, clarity, and confidence. With flower reigning supreme as a top-selling category at all of our locations, Curaleaf is proud to offer “Pre-Rolls with a Purpose” – a special pink version of our popular cannabis pre-rolls made with flower that is grown to the highest standards by experienced cultivators. The Company saw tremendous success with this program last year, particularly in Florida where over $38,000 was raised for the state’s local charity, Badges of Courage.

Curaleaf is committed to building an eco-system of impact, policy and business that aligns with the greater good of the cannabis industry and the communities in which the Company operates and serves. The Company will announce its full social equity plan as part of its corporate social responsibility program “Rooted In Good” later this year.
