BevCanna Introduces Gruv Beverages
Vancouver, British Columbia-based BevCanna Enterprises is introducing Gruv Beverages, its new cannabis-infused ready-to-drink iced teas, reports a company press release. “The brand embodies the delight we have in connecting with others and ourselves. It sets the pace for reveling in the moment. It’s a lively and approachable brand – grooving to the music of life,” states the release.
Gruv Beverages will have two flavors: Matcha Green Iced Tea, and Ginger Mint Herbal Iced Tea.
The teas were formulated in response to the BevCanna’s research covering North American consumers and their preferences pertaining to cannabis-infused beverages and are meant to assist people with relaxation.
“Iced tea was among the top five performing concepts, among 25 product concepts tested,” said Emma Andrews, Chief Commercialization Officer at BevCanna. “We are also choosing to launch this brand with a balanced THC and CBD profile (1:1 ratio), in order to provide consumers with a mild, yet effective cannabis experience.”
The launching of Gruv Beverages in the United States will mark one of the first brands by BevCanna in the country. The company plans to launch its cannabis-infused teas in Canada after the anticipated legalization of infused products in Oct. 2019.
