veteran-owned american weed co. joins petalfast’s california portfolio

Irvine, Calif. (March 1, 2023) – Petalfast, a route-through-market platform for the cannabis industry, announced its partnership in California with American Weed Co., a Veteran-owned company with a special mission: to legalize cannabis for Veterans nationwide. American Weed Co. joins a growing portfolio of brands represented by Petalfast nationwide.

Inspired by the legendary military units of World War II, American Weed Co.’s one-of-a-kind product offerings include indica-leaning Bombed Buzz, sativa-leaning Devil’s Dawn, Rockets pre-rolls, and a first-to-market CBN sleep joint Armored Angel. Unique in the industry, the company’s product lineup uses all natural “terpene stacking” to ensure their branded flower and pre-rolls taste, smell and have the same efficacy every time. American Weed Co.’s innovative product design comes from a proprietary infusion methodology developed by their award winning Chief Product Officer, aimed at revolutionizing the industry by providing consumers with consistency. Additionally, both brands available have a regular version at around 20-25% THC, as well as a higher THC version at around 35-40%.

“American Weed Co. is an innovative, forward thinking brand that does not shy away from pushing boundaries and taking strategic steps to ensure that Veterans across the country have secure access to the medicine they need,” said Petalfast CEO Jason Vegotsky. “It goes without saying that we are honored and excited to work with a brand that is both unique and charitable. We believe that we have the tools to advance their cause and elevate the profile of their incredible product selection.”

With their diverse product offerings, American Weed Co. Co-Founders Ryan Brooks and Sean Gilfillan aim to not only meet the needs of Veterans turning to cannabis for medicinal support, but all consumers who want a consistent, quality brand they can trust. American Weed Co. will be donating up to 10% of their net profits per year to Stop Soldier Suicide, where every dollar donated goes towards saving a Veteran’s life, and where Sean sits on the advisory board.

“We are so excited to partner with the amazing dispensaries, delivery services and folks on the front lines of the fight that have great relationships with Petalfast,” said American Weed Co. Co-CEO Sean Gilfillan, who is a former US Army officer and US diplomat. 

Ryan Brooks, Oscar-winning producer and American Weed Co.’s Co-CEO added, “As a voting member of the National Cannabis Roundtable in Washington, D.C., our mission is extremely important. Petalfast is a perfect partner because of their support for our mission, world class team, and passion for this industry.”

The addition of American Weed Co. comes amidst significant growth for Petalfast, which in recent months announced its expansion into the Arizona and Massachusetts markets, as well as new partnerships nationwide. Since its 2020 launch in California, Petalfast has built a diverse portfolio of high-profile cannabis brands to highlight the most creative product offerings and help both emerging and growing brands sell into and through retail channels in competitive markets. The Company’s collaborative platform approach to distribution and field marketing is a key differentiator, significantly changing how cannabis brands can launch, scale and establish themselves in select markets.
