Bringing Mindys to California, and to an audience that seeks and appreciates artisanal cannabis creations, was a natural progression for a brand thats thriving in multiple other markets, said Cresco Labs CEO and co-founder Charles Bachtell.

Mindys is well positioned for success in the California market because of Crescos multi-acre cultivation facility in Carpentaria, its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Mendota, and its access to the recently acquired Continuum distribution platform.
