Mr. Daniel Stern reports


Lifeist Wellness Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary CannMart Inc. recorded strong unit sales growth in 2023 across both in-house brands Roilty and Zest Cannabis.

"CannMart achieved significant growth in 2023 with its in-house brands, Roilty and Zest Cannabis," said Daniel Stern, chief executive officer of CannMart. "Roilty became the second bestselling concentrate brand in Canada, showcasing impressive unit sales and capturing additional market share across key provinces of Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. Zest Cannabis also outperformed market growth in Ontario and Alberta, driven by innovative products and an expanded SKU count. The brands' steady month-over-month growth and expanded distribution efforts position CannMart for continued success in 2024."

Roilty 2023 highlights:

  • The big three (Ontario, Alberta, B.C.): second bestselling concentrate brand with 13-per-cent market share;
  • Ontario: second in category with 11-per-cent market share with a 1,154-per-cent year-over-year increase in concentrate unit sales driven by the addition of new stock-keeping units (SKUs) across the provincial boards;
  • Alberta: second in category with 15-per-cent market share and a 334-per-cent year-over-year increase in concentrate unit sales;
  • British Columbia: fourth in category with 6-per-cent market share and a 354-per-cent year-over-year increase in concentrate unit sales.

Roilty posted an average of 20-per-cent month-over-month increase in overall unit sales across the portfolio in 2023, experiencing steady brand growth and market share capture through expanded distribution efforts. It also beat industry trends across several cannabis categories in 2023, posting an 82-per-cent increase in total unit sales in 2023 versus 2022. Roilty specifically dominated in live resin and was the No. 1 selling live resin brand in Alberta and No. 2 in Ontario. In 2024, year to date, Roilty shatter sits in the No. 2 position in both Ontario and Alberta, while sugar wax, which currently ranks No. 1 in both provinces, was No. 1 in Alberta and No. 2 in Ontario for 2023. In 2024, Roilty will introduce new SKUs in Ontario, Alberta and Quebec, and is expected to build upon the strong growth posted in 2023.

Zest Cannabis also showed strong growth in 2023. Unit sales for Zest prerolls increased in 2023 compared with 2022 driven by new product availability growing from three SKUs available upon the brand launch in July, 2022, to 15 SKUs in December, 2023. After 18 months in operation Zest has several top-performing products and ranked 34th out of 82 brands across Alberta and Ontario combined in 2023, placing Zest in the top 25 per cent of brands by unit sales in the subsegment for infused prerolls.
