DETROIT, Feb. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Gage Growth Corp. (“Gage” or the “Company”) (CSE: GAGE) (OTCQX: GAEGF), a leading high-quality premium cannabis brand and operator in Michigan, announced that the Company will launch products from Pure Beauty (“Pure Beauty”), starting Friday, February 11th.

“We are excited to be introducing Pure Beauty products and experiences to Michigan and with Gage, a state and a partner we feel incredibly aligned with. Michigan is culturally and artistically thriving, so we feel confident it is a population that will embrace our products and ethos. And we know Gage can consistently execute to our high standards—so the Pure Beauty consumer in Michigan is getting the same experience as the Pure Beauty consumer in California—while also advancing our shared values around the environment and social justice,” said Imelda Walavalkar, CEO of Pure Beauty.
“Brand recognition drives success in the cannabis industry, and Pure Beauty has generated an impressive following through its exceptional products and distinctive brand identity,” said Fabian Monaco, CEO of Gage. “Partnering with leading brands like Pure Beauty will continue to elevate and diversify one of the fastest growing cannabis markets and provide Michigan customers and patients with unparalleled cannabis experiences.”
In the coming months, Pure Beauty’s full selection of pre-rolls will be available in Gage dispensaries. In-store activations to celebrate the brand launch will take place at Gage retail locations in Ferndale, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo (Stadium Dr.), Lansing and Adrian.
