Brad Rogers, CEO & Chairman of RWB commented, “This is a fantastic partnership for RWB, Platinum and cannabis consumers in California. We are very excited to be able to work with Adam Berk, CEO & Chairman of Driven By Stem and his team.

These folks are experts in the in-home delivery space and through this partnership, we have the opportunity to deliver Platinum to the homes of 92% of Californians with speed and convenience. This will certainly increase our brand recognition and avail Platinum to a significantly greater number of consumers in this previously underserved market” he concluded.
