Red White & Bloom (CSE: RWB) (OTCQX: RWBYF) announced Monday that effective September 14, 2020, the company has officially closed its blockbuster acquisition of Platinum Vape (PV). Monday’s news follows the company’s September 02, 2020, Q2 earnings report, in which it firmed up the PV deal.
Platinum Vape is an American success story founded by the father-son duo of George and Cody Sadler.

PV products also boast an impressive 84% approval rating on WeedMaps.
“We are happy to have all the details of this acquisition now wrapped up and have this transaction closed. I think it was important to get this transaction completed and have the great team at Platinum Vape join us as we look to further expand our footprint in the U.S.,” commented RWB Chairman & CEO Brad Rogers.
“Cody and I are so excited that we’re able to execute on all levels needed to get this done. To be successful in this space, you need a solid team, and that’s exactly what we feel we are part of with RWB. The future growth for Platinum, combined with a company that has solid growth, low debt and great direction, is what’s needed to navigate through this space, and that’s what RWB has to offer. We couldn’t be happier with the decision we have made to be a part of the RWB team,” said Platinum Vape co-founder George Sadler in RWB’s September 2, 2020 press release.
