O.penVAPE and TGIG Introduce Medical Cannabis Oils to Nevada Consumers
TGIG Will Create 50 New Jobs and Patients Will Have Access to O.penVAPE Products
DENVER, CO, Mar 07, 2016 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — O.penVAPE, the world’s largest cannabis brand, in partnership with TGIG, a Nevada medical cannabis enterprise with a state-of-the-art production and cultivation facility, has begun producing and distributing O.penVAPE’s best-selling CO2 extracted cannabis oils.
Denver-based O.penVAPE licenses products and manufacturing services in the medical and adult-use cannabis industry. Through its network of licensees in nine states and Jamaica, it is the largest extractor of cannabis oil in the United States.
Demetri Kouretas, CEO of TGIG, said its valuable relationship with O.penVAPE will make it possible for patients to obtain cannabis oil processed through CO2 extraction, a pure and safer form of cannabis oil. His company has begun wholesaling O.penVAPE products to current operating dispensaries and plans to make O.penVAPE products available to all of southern Nevada’s 48 dispensaries by the end of the year.
“Employing the science and technology that O.penVAPE has perfected, we are manufacturing superior cannabis oil for customers who have been requesting a way to ingest cannabis in safer measured doses,” Kouretas said. “We researched partnerships with other manufacturers and selected O.penVAPE because we share with O.penVAPE’s leaders similar views about access to medical cannabis. We simply got along well.”
Chris Driessen, Chief Business Development Officer of O.penVAPE, said TGIG is one of two Nevada enterprises that have entered into licensee agreements with O.penVAPE. TGIG holds four Nevada state licenses, making it possible for them to cultivate cannabis, produce O.penVAPE cannabis oil, and distribute and sell cannabis flower and O.penVAPE products. Per Nevada law, TGIG’s license covers the southern portion of the state, which includes the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Mesquite, Laughlin and Clark and Nye counties.
This strategic partnership makes our premium products available to medical cannabis patients who are residents of Nevada. With our national reach and more than 42 million visitors to Las Vegas alone, we are particularly excited about the reciprocity in license which allows medical cannabis card holders from any state to legally purchase cannabis here.

Kouretas said that his business’s growth will allow him to create at least 20 new cultivation and manufacturing jobs this year. TGIG has already produced O.penVAPE RESERVE(TM) pure-oil offering and O.penVAPE strain-specific CO2 extracted oils in 250 mg cartridges. These products are now available at Inyo Fine Cannabis, 2520 S. Maryland Parkway, Ste, 2, Las Vegas NV 89109; Euphoria Wellness, 7780 S. Jones Blvd., Las Vegas NV 89139 and The Grove, 1541 E. Basin Ave., Pahrump, NV, 89060.
TGIG is a vertically integrated medical marijuana enterprise that has brought together a team of experts who bring an extensive depth of knowledge in myriad industries, such as medical and horticultural, as well as culinary and the cannabis oil industry, and is applying this experience to its operation. TGIG operates a state-of-the-art cultivation and production facility and is dedicated to curating its selection of strains so it can offer patients a high-quality alternative.
With products in over 1,100 dispensaries nationwide and in Jamaica, O.penVAPE has established itself as the leader within the cannabis industry. O.penVAPE appreciates a mutually beneficial relationship with its network of affiliates who are licensed to sell O.penVAPE cannabis oil-filled cartridges, vaporizer devices and other related products. Licensees in Arizona, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Connecticut employ O.penVAPE’s Organa Labs technology to manufacture cannabis oil through CO2 extraction. Now cannabis enthusiasts, as well as medical marijuana patients, have broader access to a pure, safer and more consistent product.
