High Tide intends to integrate the stores into its Canna Cabana brand.

The parties expect the transaction to close in the coming weeks.

Following the closing, High Tide will own 136 stores nationwide.

High Tide is a retail-focused cannabis company with brick-and-mortar as well as global e-commerce assets.

High Tide (HITI) is up by 4.41 per cent trading at $2.84 per share as of 11:38 am EST.
