Ezequiel Pavlotsky, VBR Brands’ director of International Sales, has been in Europe all year representing HoneyStick brand at every major cannabis expo to build brand awareness, expand its network of distributors, and form new industry relationships that help VPR Brands emerge as a global business.
The Company has expanded its European Master Distributor list with the addition of Near Dark in Germany, a large B2B distributor for the entire region. VPR Brands’ direct-to-consumer online presence continues to grow as more of its SKUs are added in the United Kingdom on Amazon UK.
“Country by country, all the hard work is starting to pay off,” stated Pavlotsky. “Having a permanent presence in Europe is making a tremendous difference, as it puts us closer to our distributors and related trade events. The EU market is growing rapidly and we are seeing huge advancements in awareness among expositors and visitors. It is fun working within this evolving industry and meeting people from different countries and cultures who have cannabis and now HoneyStick in common.”
The Company has also formed distribution partnerships with B.O.B. Headquarters (BOBHQ) and Humble & Fume, both of Canada, and AllGrano Distribución in South America.
“Working with B.O.B Headquarters as well as Humble & Fume to service Canada’s growing market for cannabis accessories was a great addition as it allows us to better cater to our wholesale as well as retail inquiries from the region, ” said Dan Hoff, COO of VPR Brands. “We are excited about all of our new international partners and look forward to working with them to promote our HoneyStick brand in their respective countries.”

About VPR Brands LP:
VPR Brands (VPRB) is a technology company whose assets include issued U.S. and Chinese patents for atomization-related products that encompass technology for medical marijuana vaporizers and electronic cigarette products and components. The company is also engaged in product development for the vapor or vaping market – including e-liquids, vaporizers and electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes) – which are devices that deliver nicotine and/or cannabis through atomization or vaping and without smoke and other chemical constituents typically found in traditional products.
Although VPR Brands’ sales are not segregated by brand or product category, its primary revenue source is from vaporization devices specifically created for use with medical cannabis and recreational marijuana as well as cannabidiols (“CBD”). These devices are specifically created for use with extract oils and concentrates which are vaped, providing optimal results and the best experience for patients and recreational users. Vaporizers are far more convenient and discrete compared to traditional cannabis use methods. These units are compact, easy to carry and concealable. Modern cannabis vaporizers do not emit distinct and lingering odors that are affiliated with traditional marijuana use. VPR Brands believes that portable vaporizers are the fastest growing delivery mechanism for marijuana. The company is currently working with other market leaders within cannabis growth and extraction to innovate and further educate the marketplace on its advantages.
