Virdi, LLC (“Virdi”) is pleased to announce the closing of a $7.5 million equity purchase by Beacon Hill Brands (USA) Inc. (“BHB”), which positions BHB as a significant equity stakeholder in Virdi. As part of the transaction, BHB will have the right to appoint two of the five members to Virdi’s Board. 

Prior to the agreement, Virdi held limited exclusive rights to the Vessl® technology in the cannabinoid space for the U.S. and Canada. Pursuant to the transaction, Virdi purchased expanded global rights to cannabinoids and extended the field of use to include psilocybin applications where legal. The transaction positions Virdi to exploit the Vessl® technology worldwide across multiple revenue streams including both owned-brands and third-party use.

Walter D. Apodaca Jr., CEO of Virdi, LLC, stated, “We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Beacon Hill Brands (USA). The closing of this transaction comes at a very exciting time as Vessl® is being adopted by some of the largest CPG companies in the world. The expanded rights will position Virdi to do the same with major players in cannabis.”
