Ltd. dba Apothecary Botanicals.
“This is a huge milestone for Geyser Brands and something that we have been working toward for many months,” Thatcher stated in the release. “The license allows us to add value to existing consumer health care brands by providing them the platform to add CBD. It also reflects our business model to focus our licensed producer on delivering scale through manufacturing and distribution. I wish to congratulate the team at Apothecary Botanicals and Geyser for all the hard work in obtaining this license. We are moving forward full steam with our vision and there is plenty more to come in the future.”
