TILT Holdings’ Jupiter Research Announces Partnership With The Blinc Group

Collaboration to Include Bespoke Vape Products and Partnership on Vaporization Regulatory and Compliance Legislation

MASSACHUSETTS:  TILT Holdings Inc., a foundational technology cannabis platform comprised of assets to support brands worldwide, announced that its subsidiary Jupiter Research has partnered with The Blinc Group to offer bespoke vaporization devices to its clients as well as collaborate on industry innovations, cannabis vaping regulatory and compliance issues.

“Jupiter has always taken pride in being at the forefront of innovation,” said Mark Scatterday, interim CEO at TILT and Founder/CEO of Jupiter.  “As the market continues to grow we are excited to announce our partnership with The Blinc Group, enabling bespoke solutions for our clients and leveraging their expertise when it comes to vaporization regulatory and legal compliance legislation.”

Blinc’s Co-Founder and CEO Arnaud Dumas de Rauly is the Chairman of the International ISO committee on Vaping Standards, Chairman of the European CEN Committee on Vapor Products, former President of FIVAPE in the EU, and a renowned expert in inhalation technology, regulations, manufacturing and distribution.

“We look forward to working closely with Jupiter and bringing additional value and expertise to their extensive network of clients,” said Mr. Dumas de Rauly. “I am excited to see what the future of cannabis vaping landscape holds when two companies like Jupiter and Blinc work closely together to help shape the new standards and set an example for regulatory compliance as a whole.”

In addition to working on bespoke products together for key clients, Jupiter plans to leverage Blinc’s extensive quality control, regulatory and compliance expertise to remain at the forefront of vaporization legislation, ensuring safe and compliant consumption across the United States and internationally.

In January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ended its ‘state of emergency’ general public advisory against vaping, due to the sharp decline in e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury cases being reported. The focus and scope of efforts to address the unregulated businesses and unlicensed storefronts is still an important factor in maintaining safety in the industry. The Blinc and Jupiter partnership represents an opportunity to accelerate and foster industry innovation and collaboration beyond vaporization.
