(“Goodness Growth” or the “Company”) (CSE: GDNS) (OTCQX: GDNSF), a physician-led, science-focused cannabis company and IP developer, today announced the addition of cannabis-infused gummies to its Vireo brand in Minnesota, in accordance with Minnesota’s new regulations effective Aug. 1 allowing certified medical cannabis patients in the state to purchase certain edible products containing cannabis.

“Minnesota’s medical cannabis program allows for people with a variety of different medical diagnoses to seek relief using medical cannabis,” said Kyle Kingsley, M.D., Goodness Growth Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The more options we are able to offer our patients, the better we are able to meet their different medical needs.

Vireo’s gummies are designed to meet the needs of a variety of cannabis patients.
