Fluent Pensacola Broadens Access for Florida Medical Cannabis Patients; Company Also
Announces Plans to Open Up Three Additional Florida Retail Locations in First Half of 2023

MIAMI, Jan. 18, 2023 /CNW/ - Cansortium Inc. (CSE: TIUM.U) (OTCQX: CNTMF) ("Cansortium" or the "Company"), a vertically-integrated, multi-state cannabis company operating under the Fluent brand, announced the grand opening of its 29th medical cannabis dispensary in Florida and 32nd retail location nationwide, along with plans to open three additional store locations in Florida in the first half  of 2023.

On January 20, 2023, Fluent will host its official grand opening of Fluent Pensacola, which will feature deep storewide discounts such as 50% off all Fluent products for the entire grand opening weekend[1]. The new 2,500 sq. ft. medical cannabis dispensary will carry Fluent's full house of brands, including: Smokiez edibles; BLACK Line, MOODS and Fluent Care tinctures and vape cartridges; raw cannabis flower and pre-rolls from Fluent Flower and Freedom Town Holdings; and Fluent capsules, extracts and topicals. The store will also carry a wide selection of consumption devices such as approved vape batteries, along with daily rotating doorbusters and deals Monday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

With an emphasis on convenience for patients, Fluent Pensacola's online ordering platform makes shopping for medical cannabis smooth and easy. In addition to ordering through the website, medical patients can also place orders over the phone with the Fluent Pensacola staff. Patients on-the-go can bypass stepping into the store and utilize the dispensary's convenient drive-thru express pickup window for their medical cannabis orders.

The new medical cannabis dispensary is conveniently located in the Drummond Park neighborhood in northern Pensacola at 301 East Nine Mile Road and just blocks from The Home Depot and Walmart Supercenter off of Pensacola Boulevard. It is also well positioned near a bustling retail strip and multitude of restaurants, and sits across East Nine Mile Road from the Winn-Dixie grocery store.

"Our new Pensacola store, located on a major thoroughfare in the city, not only broadens patients' access to high-quality flower and medical cannabis products, but also delivers a first-class retail experience to customers and expands the number of Floridians we employ to more than 540," said Fluent Cannabis Care Director of Sales Victor Bindi. "Just a mile from Pensacola Boulevard, this location is in a quickly developing area of the city that provides easy access to a number of communities, and can service the needs of Escambia residents all the way from Ferry Pass to Century. With the fastest-gaining market share in Florida and plans to open three additional retail locations across the Sunshine State – including one additional location in south Pensacola on Chase Street – we will continue to prioritize our Florida strategy as we look to provide the best cannabis and service to more patients, create good-paying jobs in local communities and bring value to our investors."
