High Tide, a retail-focused cannabis company, has purchased nine operating retail cannabis stores from Choom Holdings.

With the deal, High Tide expands its services to Vancouver and new markets in Alberta.

“Choom was one of the original and long-standing brands in cannabis retail with a presence across the country and a similar brand personality to Canna Cabana. This will make the integration of Choom into the Canna Cabana brand seamless,” said Raj Grover, CEO of High Tide. “While Choom had 17 operational stores before entering CCAA proceedings, we can acquire the nine locations that we want across three provinces.”
