BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE: BEV) announced that it is a sponsor of the Cannabis Drinks Expo, the first global expo for cannabis beverages. The Expo is being held on July 25, 2019 in San Francisco.
“As legalization expands, and consumption continues to become normalized, we intend to build a global presence for our products and brands” said Emma Andrews, Chief Commercialization Officer at BevCanna. “We’ve just released the results of our extensive North American-wide consumer study, focused on consumption preferences in the cannabis infused beverage space, and expect these findings to resonate with our industry peers in attendance at the Expo. It validates that consumers across multiple markets including California, New York and Canada have a strong purchase intent, especially for beverages and edibles that contain CBD. Consumers identify with the potential for CBD to reduce/relieve pain, to help them achieve a more restful sleep, and to relax/unwind at the end of the day.”
BevCanna is developing a range of ready-to-drink cannabis-infused beverage options in Canada, and is currently validating a unique and proprietary water-soluble powder through a joint R&D agreement in California. They are also working on GMP certification for their existing 40,000 sq. ft bottling plant near Osoyoos, BC, Canada. With additional Licensing by Health Canada, this will allow BevCanna to pursue global export.
“BevCanna is committed to taking on a leadership role within the cannabis-infused beverage landscape,” added Andrews. “By participating in industry-leading events like the Cannabis Drinks Expo, and meeting with potential JV or licensing partners, we continue to advance the nascent cannabis-infused beverage category.”
BevCanna is also a member of the Cannabis Beverage Producers Alliance, a unified body of manufacturers, industry professionals, and advisers who advocate for the safe, reliable and responsible production of legal cannabis beverages. The CBPA will also act as the voice of consumers; lobbying for the right to allow for responsible consumption choices within a framework of wide legal access, all the while ensuring public safety.
