Publicly-traded cannabis company Columbia Care Inc. CCHW CCHWF 3LP confirmed Monday its change in legal name to The Cannabist Company Holdings Inc. and will rebrand to The Cannabist Company. In addition to the rebrand, the company’s common shares and warrants will trade under the symbols “CBST” and “CBST.WT”, respectively, on Cboe Canada effective Thursday, September 21, 2023.
“The rebrand to The Cannabist Company marks an incredibly pivotal moment for us as an organization and speaks to where we are heading,” Jesse Channon, chief commercial officer, The Cannabist Company stated. “When we launched Cannabist, we wanted to create a brand that could evolve with the rapidly growing industry and serve as the hub for all customers, regardless of what brought them to our doors. As we’ve opened Cannabists across the country, it became clear to us that the ethos behind that retail brand represented our company as a whole — a passion for cannabis that we all share and fuels our work every day.
Channon will be one of many featured speakers at one of the biggest cannabis conferences in the world next week – the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Chicago. The CCO will likely discuss the rebranding news, and share more information about the company’s plans.
