MBLL is the exclusive wholesaler of non-medical cannabis in Manitoba and sells to authorized private Cannabis retailers in the province.

- Unique and/or new products that currently are not offered
- Underserved products, product categories or sub-categories.

- Brands with demonstrated performance in other markets
- Historical legacy market brand recognition
