Actor Seth Rogen is urging young people to stay home and smoke marijuana rather than risk spreading the coronavirus by going out — and he’s getting praise for his recommendation from a top Canadian politician. After British Columbia Premier John Horgan put out a call for Rogen and fellow Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds to use their influence to discourage risky behavior amid the pandemic, the comedian tweeted a message urging young people to practice social distancing while consuming cannabis. People of British Columbia! Please do not go out to parties and BBQs and other large gatherings! The COVID is still out there! It’s more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you! “Please do not go out to parties and BBQs and other large gatherings! The COVID is still out there!” Rogen said. “It’s more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you!” Horgan quoted the tweet and thanked the actor, linking to the province’s COVID-19 information website that also encourages people not to “pass around drinks, smokes, tokes, and vapes.” “Now is not the time for sharing anything that’s been in your mouth,” the site from British Columbia’s provincial health officer states. But while Rogen’s general recommendation was well taken by the top B.C. elected official, some cannabis enthusiasts have argued that people should consider refraining from smoking it and instead consume using alternative methods given the potential additional risk to the lungs at a time when the virus that targets the respiratory system is spreading. NORML  gave that advice in a post  in March, saying that “because COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, some of you may wish to limit or avoid their exposure to combustive smoke — as this can put undue stress and strain on the lungs.” “Alternative delivery devices, such as vaporizer heating devices can significantly mitigate combustive smoke exposure, and of course, the use of edibles or tinctures can eliminate smoke exposure entirely,” the group wrote to supporters. Rogen, who co-owns the cannabis company Houseplant, has been known to leverage his celebrity for advocacy purposes in the past. For example, he released a PSA last year that promoted expungements efforts and  highlighted issues that stem from having a criminal record . On a more casual note, Rogen and Snoop Dogg  offered advice to first-time cannabis consumers  last year in a joint appearance on Howard Stern’s show, emphasizing the need to take it slow in the beginning. Rogen also became an outspoken activist for research into Alzheimer’s after he witnessed his mother-in-law develop the disease. In 2014, he opened his testimony before a Senate committee hearing on Alzheimer’s research by joking that he wasn’t there to discuss the topic some might expect: marijuana.

TORONTO – Captor Capital Corp. (CSE: CPTR; FRANKFURT: NMV; STUTTGART: NMVA; USOTC: CPTRF), (“Captor” or the “Company”) today announced that it entered into a joint venture (the “Joint Venture”) with California based Three Habitat Consulting Holdco Inc. (“Three Habitat”), which owns and operates a retail chain of dispensaries in California under the brand One Plant. Captor and Three Habitat have set up a joint venture company called Captor Retail Group Inc. (“CRG”), which will be owned 51% by Captor and 49% by Three Habitat. Under the terms of a contribution agreement entered into between Captor and Three Habitat (the “Contribution Agreement”), Captor will contribute $2mm in cash along with its two Chai branded dispensaries in Santa Cruz and Castroville in exchange for its 51% interest in CRG. Three Habitat will contribute its seven One Plant dispensaries to CRG in exchange for its 49% interest in CRG. Of the seven dispensaries being contributed to the Joint Venture by Three Habitat, the retail dispensaries in Salinas, Atwater, and El Sobrante are licensed and open for business. The locations in Antioch, Goleta, Lompoc, and Palm Springs are currently under construction and are expected to be operational soon. Adam Wilks, COO of Three Habitat, will assume the role of CEO of Captor Retail Group and will manage the day-to-day operations of all nine dispensaries, as well as oversee the transfer of the dispensary licenses to CRG, as well as the construction and licensing of the four One Plant dispensaries that are currently under construction. Mr. Wilks brings more than a dozen years of experience, in the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry having worked with brands including Yogen Früz, Pinkberry, Cold Stone Creamery and Buy N Bulk. Mr. Wilks currently oversees Three Habitat’s chain of dispensaries and real estate portfolio in California. Advertisement “We are thrilled to join forces with such a strong partner that shares our corporate culture. Our focus remains on profitability as well as sustainable growth, as we continue to connect to our customers in a meaningful way,” said Captor Retail Group CEO, Adam Wilks. Once all dispensaries become operational and CRG holds all of the requisite regulatory licenses, Captor will hold an interest in 51% of 9 operating cannabis dispensaries in northern California. To the extent that any dispensary license is unable to be successfully transferred to CRG, the party who was supposed to contribute the relevant dispensary to CRG under the Contribution Agreement will have their equity ownership in CRG scaled back on a proportionate basis. There can be no assurance that the requisite regulatory approval will be received to permit the transfer of all nine dispensary licenses to CRG.“The acquisition is in line with Captor’s strategy of building a leading cannabis retail, e-commerce, and delivery hub in the lucrative, but less competitive and costly Northern California market. The resulting retail footprint of nine stores will make Captor one of the largest retailers in Northern California,” said Captor Capital CEO, John Zorbas. “We are confident that with Adam Wilks leading our fantastic operations, this acquisition will strengthen Captor’s position as one of California’s leading cannabis retailers.” Upon Captor and Three Habitat making their contributions in accordance with the Contribution Agreement, Captor intends to move its Mellow Extracts business into the One Plant location in Antioch, California. As such, the licensing efforts in Costa Mesa, California, the current location of Mellow Extracts have been abandoned. It is intended that all extraction and edible making equipment that belongs to Mellow Extracts will be moved into a 10,000 sq ft. space attached to the One Plant location in Antioch. That location is currently zoned to allow cannabis manufacturing and processing, and Captor will commence the licencing application process once the extraction and edible making equipment has been moved to Antioch. Captor will retain 100% ownership of Mellow Extracts and its ownership will not be transferred to CRG as part of the Joint Venture. CEO of Captor, John Zorbas, stated, “The decision to move Mellow Extracts to Antioch is a strategic one. We wanted to create a centralized hub for retail, manufacturing and distribution that is within a 90-minute drive to majority of the future CRG dispensary locations. We intend Mellow to be a main supplier of oils, concentrates, and edibles to all of our dispensaries and it made sense for us to move Mellow from southern to northern California.” There can be no assurance of when the manufacturing and processing licences will be received by Mellow Extracts, or if they will be received at all. About Captor Capital Corp. Captor Capital Corp. is a Canadian cannabis company listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange, the OTC, and the Frankfurt and Stuttgart stock exchanges. Captor provides recreational and marijuana-based products to consumers, as well as other high demand cannabis-based goods for consumption. The Company follows a strategy of acquiring cash flowing established companies and organizations with growth potential that require capital to scale. Captor currently has a number of revenue generating cannabis assets including the CHAI Cannabis Co. dispensaries in Santa Cruz and Monterey, CA. The Company also owns Mellow Extracts, based in Costa Mesa, CA (launch date to be determined). In the months preceding its entry into the Southern California market, classy Portland dispensary brand Serra playfully stirred anticipation. At meticulously selected intersections around Los Angeles, striking wheatpaste posters popped up, evoking traits the company wants consumers to associate with its brand—happiness, relaxation, relief, focus, energy, and creativity—interpreted in a bold, highly imaginative visual style with a surreal edge, inspired perhaps by the irreverent Italian concept magazine Toiletpaper. Fresh, forward-gazing, and fun, Serra’s West Hollywood store promised to be something genuinely different in a town spoiled with interesting dispensary concepts. “Right from the beginning we wanted to be fun, we wanted to be cheeky, we wanted to be sophisticated, we wanted to be artful,” said Serra’s founder and Brand Director Cambria Benson. “The goal was to be a brand that pushes the boundaries while helping to destigmatize the plant for a new group of people.” Advertisement Serra launched its flagship store in May 2016, in Portland, Oregon’s Old Town Chinatown. Housed in an 1889 historic landmark, the location was among the first “elevated” dispensaries to position itself as a safe, open cannabis experience. The balance of tight product curation, clear language, and intentional, elegant design attracted consumers intimidated by the average pot shop at that time. A Serra product line soon followed with a statewide roll-out, rounding out a cohesive concept that set a bar so high it still stands largely alone today. Serra | 8151 West 3rd St. | Los Angeles, California 90048 The Los Angeles location soft-launched in March, becoming the ninth dispensary from Groundworks Industries , the vertically integrated parent company Benson formed with her husband, Spencer Noecker. Groundworks also is behind Oregon’s popular 1960s-themed Electric Lettuce dispensaries. In addition, the company oversees cultivation and extraction facilities as well as distribution throughout Oregon. When Benson viewed the West Hollywood site in 2017, the space was a rundown former auto body shop nestled between The Grove and the Beverly Center, with a surplus of affluent cannabis consumers within its radius. She immediately saw the building’s potential. “I fell in love with it from the get-go because of the green living wall on the side of the building,” she said. “Once we saw all the natural light inside, and of course all the parking, we knew this was the space [for Serra].” These differentiators and a respect for the legacy of buildings made Benson and her team go against advice to bulldoze and rebuild on the valuable plot of land. “We love taking a building’s unique heritage and using that to inform something beautiful and new,” she said. “It’s important that we make our stores feel unique to the local market while also acknowledging we’re becoming part of the history of the building.” Although the team wanted the new store to reference the brand’s flagship location in Portland—reflective brass and gold surfaces, abundant natural light, intuitive layout—Benson wanted the West Hollywood location to feel distinctly Californian. “Once we had the space, I went through my list of dream local designers. We thought it was important to work with people who knew Los Angeles and understood the city’s aesthetic.” One design studio topped her list: Commune . Founded by principal designers Roman Alonso and Steven Johanknecht in the early 2000s, Commune consistently has ranked among the most influential interior design studios in the world. Counting the likes of the Ace Hotel, Google, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as clients, the firm has earned a consistent spot in Architectural Digest’s AD100 and the Elle Decor A-list for an elegant-yet-playful take on California Modern. “I had respected their work for a long time,” said Benson. “They have a unique approach, always value the historic aspects of the property, and bring a sense of California cool without being overdone.” Alonso explained, “Serra wanted a design inspired by multi-brand, luxury specialty stores and not necessarily other dispensary experiences,” but he was quick to point out no one wanted the finished design to feel “pretentious or precious.” “It had to offer comfort,” he said. “Casual elegance is a hallmark of Los Angeles. It’s ingrained in the lifestyle here, and it was our goal to carry this through into the design.” Commune built on Serra’s minimalist palette by introducing white oak and Carrara marble alongside the firm’s signature brass details and intentional splashes of International Klein Blue. “The finishes were already in the brand identity,” Alonso said. “We just dialed up the execution a bit.” The store is divided subtly into product categories, with the plant taking center stage. U-shaped flower bars are lined with wood and glass boxes housing nugs on ornate plates, labeled clearly by effect. Around the periphery is a confectionery bar with little edibles from Serra, Satori, and Atlas arranged as if they could be individually picked and boxed (“One day…,” Benson lamented). A refrigerator showcases Cann, Lagunitas, and new infused aperitif Artet, followed by a wall of skincare products and topicals, and a light selection of vapes by the point of purchase. As well as being a strong curator, Benson thoroughly enjoys forming collaborative partnerships, particularly with companies from outside the cannabis industry. Serra has created products with Stumptown Coffee, Woodblock Chocolate, and Jacobsson Saltum, which she feels has been a key method of raising awareness and building trust with new consumers. “We want to create good products with people we love, and partnering with brands people know and trust helps them feel safe exploring cannabis,” she said. This spirit of unconventional collaboration is on display in glass cabinets by the entrance of the store, where a rotating selection of local artists showcase abstract glassware and luxury smoking accessories. “We wanted to have products that fit the way we live,” Benson explained. “All the objects on our shelves look like art objects, except you can either smoke, store, or grind with them. I’m really excited that there’s more mainstream design brands getting on board with cannabis goods, accessories, and paraphernalia.” While Serra is hitting all the right notes, the timing of the West Hollywood launch was fraught with challenges. March’s COVID-19 lockdown restrictions certainly took some of the wind out of the dispensary’s sails. Then, the WeHo location was in the heart of Southern California’s first major protest against police brutality at the end of May. When mg visited the store a few days later it was boarded up—as many retail businesses in the city were. Benson disclosed the flagship store in Portland had been looted. The losses to her businesses were difficult, but they are surmountable. Benson insists the Black Lives Matter movement’s message is of far greater importance than material losses to a commercial entity. “Those things can be replaced and rebuilt,” she said. “We just want to keep our employees safe and keep the focus on amplifying the voices of people of color and striving for an equal society. The past few months have been a learning experience and a necessary push for improvement and accountability as a business.” She added Serra has increased its ongoing efforts to support organizations that work for inclusion and equality in cannabis and beyond, such as NuLeaf, NAACP, Urban League, and Social Justice League. “This is just the start,” Benson said. “We will continue to reflect, learn, and engage with our employees and communities to create thoughtful initiatives that provide meaningful change.”
