(“Nutritional High” or the “Company“) (CSE: EAT, OTCQB: SPLIF, FRANKFURT: 2NU) is pleased to announce that its distribution partner and licensed operator in Southern California has received a one-year provisional distribution license for adult-use and medicinal products.

This license helps secure our position as one of the largest distributors of edibles in the State and puts us well on our way to becoming the largest distributor of cannabis products overall.”
