Hill Street Beverage Company (BEER) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Michigan-based DeHydr8 MI, LLC.

DeHydr8 will bring Hill Street’s usage rights to cutting-edge DehydraTECH™ technology for the manufacture of THC products to the Michigan cannabis industry for use in the manufacturing of edibles, infused beverages, topicals, tinctures, sublingual products, and concentrates.

Michigan ranks among the top five states in the US for cannabis sales and growth is soaring. Michigan is on track to surpass $1.5 billion in annual cannabis sales in 2021.

“Michigan is the ideal market for this partnership, which dramatically accelerates our commercialization of the DehydraTECH™ technology”, said Craig Binkley, Co-CEO of Hill Street.

“Following our transactions with the Lexaria group of companies for global usage rights to DehydraTECH™ intellectual property for incorporation into adult use CBD and THC products, we have already recorded our first revenues from licensees operating in California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts and Oklahoma. Add Michigan, and we are present in some of the largest cannabis markets in the world”.

“With this new partnership, Hill Street is also making our important B2B strategy a reality for the Company,” continued Craig Binkley. “As we continue our expansion in the US, our approach will be to assess each legal state to determine the overall market potential based on scale, regulatory environment, existing relationships and competitive situation.”

Hill Street chose to partner with DeHydr8 because of its cannabis market knowledge and strong relationships in the state.

The Dehydr8 Team is comprised of top legal counsel in the cannabis industry combined with premier marketing and sales professionals. DeHydr8 has existing relationships with leading medical use and adult use extractors and manufacturers as well as recognized experts in wellness provisioning and R&D.

“This move furthers our growth agenda to expand the Company’s commercial opportunities in three key areas: beyond Canada into global markets, beyond beverages into cannabis technology and beyond B2C into B2B scale opportunities,” said Lori Senecal, Co-CEO of Hill Street.

“We’re thrilled to be working with DeHydr8 as their expertise helps us deliver on all three of these growth strategies. In addition to the strategic fit, we felt a powerful connection with this dynamic group and a shared passion to team-up and win.”

“Working with Hill Street and their executive team to move the market and lead the industry with internationally recognized IP is an amazing opportunity.” said Todd Webber, founder of Dehydr8.

“Culture is a key ingredient to success and the culture we have created between these two executive teams, from the very first meeting, has been outstanding. We had a level of trust and respect right from the first conversation that has allowed us to achieve great strides in short order. We couldn’t be more excited to get started”.

Patented DehydraTECH™ technology improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the bloodstream, delivering a host of competitive advantages and providing better, more predictable experiences for consumers.

“We’re delighted to see that our partnership with Hill Street is delivering the intended vision,” said Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria Bioscience Corp.

“As Lexaria aggressively drives ground-breaking scientific advancements and extensive R&D, Hill Street is rapidly advancing commercialization of the DehydraTECHTM platform. This new relationship with DeHydr8 provides direct benefits to all by driving scale, royalties and commercial gain”.

The initial term of the licensing agreement with DeHydr8 is for two years and the territory is currently limited to the state of Michigan.

Hill Street Beverage Company is a non-alcoholic beverage and cannabis solutions company.

DeHydr8 is focused on delivering the premier fast-acting and most bioavailable technology, DehydraTECH™, to manufacturer partners in the US market for application in Cannabis 2.0 products.

Hill Street Beverage Company Inc. (BEER) is up 16.67 per cent, trading at C$0.07 per share at 10:45 am ET.
