Ex-advertising agency executives launch a minority owned cannabis & spirits platform

The first media platform connecting brands  with the growing cannabis & spirits audiences

New York, NY (February  9th, 2021) – Flavor Fix, the first media platform catering to cannabis and spirits, has launched. It’s built to educate people on cannabis, CBD and spirits, as well as let brands connect with this hard to reach audience. Kaya Herb House, the first legal dispensary in Jamaica has partnered with Flavor Fix to be their launch sponsor.

“Flavor Fix is a great idea that is perfectly timed.”, said Bali Vaswani, Founder of Kaya Herb House, “You’ve got cannabis legalization forging ahead in the states.  The reality that it is extremely difficult to advertise brands and products in these categories online, and the fact that no site currently offers anything to people interested in both cannabis and spirits.”

Uniquely Connecting Brands with Customers

An AdAge.com paper called Why Cannabis Audiences Are the New Gateway to Growth for Big Brand mentions  the value of the growing cannabis market and their affinity for alcohol.

Enter Flavor Fix. There are well established media platforms in cannabis and others in spirits, however, none that cover both multi-billion dollar industries and that collect data on the affluent audience that overlaps each category.  This allows Flavor Fix to have twice the amount of site traffic and build a much bigger audience than WeedMaps, Leafly, Flaviar, Merry Jane, VinePair and others alike who focus on only one of the industries. This gives them the ability to add value like helping customers pair strains like Mimosa, Gelato, and Wedding Cake  with cocktails like Old Fashioned, Cosmopolitans and Mai Tai etc. Flavor Fix also has a cannabis and spirits influencer network that helps expand their audience/reach and gives brands a unique way of advertising.  This is essential to helping brands be successful online, because advertising cannabis, CBD and spirits brands on Google and Facebook is a challenge.

“Human behavior shows that people like a little toke with their wine, beer or liquor of choice.” said, JJ Smoak, Flavor Fix’s Head of Content,” We cater to this lifestyle by expanding our concept of content into premium handmade wooden products.  Our high-quality products bring flavor to your dinner parties and personal at-home smoking experience.”

High Quality Handcrafted Wooden Products

Flavor Fix makes handmade wooden products like Cutting Boards, Stash Boxes, Rolling Trays  and Flight Paddles in small batches.  This gives Flavor Fix a tangible presence in the home and makes them a valuable part of the party.  Once their products become a household regular, Flavor Fix builds a stronger connection with their audience than other media companies who don’t have a tangible and intimate expression of their brand.  Flavor Fix offer brands like Kaya to do unique advertising campaigns on their platform that include custom branded, hand-crafted products.

Executional Experience

Flavor Fix’s founding team are ex-advertising agency executives with years of experience advertising alcohol brands with Rémy Martin, Diageo and others.  They created Flavor Fix due to an influx of cannabis and CBD clients who found it difficult to advertise cannabis and CBD brands online.  This team has helped spirits brands navigate the regulated world of alcohol advertising and are using Flavor Fix to do the same for CBD and cannabis brands.  The audience overlap also makes Flavor Fix uniquely positioned to help grow the non-alcoholic CBD and cannabis beverage segment.  A recent study by Grand View Research said that the global cannabis beverage market size is expected to reach USD 2.8 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 17.8%. Flavor Fix will be a platform that introduces alcohol connoisseurs to this delicious offering.

“The founding team has brand building, advertising, and deep SEO & Content experience,” said Mr. Chichester, Flavor Fix, Advisor and Investor, “ They have found SEO advantages over the leaders in the space and built a platform that will out rank their competitors organically on search engines like Google.  Their creation of an Influencer network for this space shows their foresight. The fact that they consider their wooden products a type of content play is genius. Plus, the majority of the founders happen to be people of color, which is unique in both advertising and the cannabis industry. I think that’s pretty cool.”

CenturionPro unveils powerful and affordable mini buckers

The industry’s broadest range of buckers just got broader

Maple Ridge, BC, CanadaCenturionPro Solutions Inc., the cannabis and hemp industry’s leading manufacturer of elite harvesting solutions, today released its latest ground-breaking innovation, the CenturionPro Mini Buckers.

Expanding on the company’s vision to develop a superior bucker for every harvest, the Mini Buckers are powerful yet affordable solutions to streamline small to medium sized operations. Inspired by the best selling GC1 and HP1 Bucking Machines, with the ability to process wet and dry plants, the GC Mini and HP Mini benefit from the same brand-name parts and exceptional construction as the highly sought-after de-stemmers, but scaled down for enhanced portability and affordability.

The market’s most cost-efficient bucker at just $3,695, the GC Mini cuts flowers from the stem, rather than popping them off, which prevents large crown buds from breaking apart. The de-budder accepts stems up to 3/8” in diameter and will process up to 20 lbs/hr wet (4 lbs/hr dry).  GC stands for ‘Gentle Cut’, as the industry’s first machines specifically designed for destemming dry and delicate cannabis plants.

With variable speed control for enhanced versatility, the HP Mini was modelled on the seminal HP1 Bucker. HP stands for ‘High Performance’ and represents CenturionPro’s workhorse line of buckers. Priced at $8,495, the HP Mini utilizes two rollers that pull stems into the bucker which allows operators to continuously feed the machine for more efficient de-stemming. Mini but mighty, the powerful de-budder accepts stems up to 1/2” in diameter and can buck up to 125 lbs/hr wet (25 lbs/hr dry).

 

“The best and broadest range of buckers just got broader”, says Karl Lundgren, VP of Marketing at CenturionPro Solutions. “As cannabis and hemp markets expand globally, we are committed to helping growers of all sizes maximize their harvests.  Harvesting is incredibly labour intensive, so small cultivators needed a solution to streamline the task and boost profitability.” The Mini Buckers are perfect for everyone from home growers to micro licensees, showcasing the company’s revolutionary harvesting technology at an unbeatable price point.

CenturionPro has a history of ground-breaking innovation, underpinned by unparalleled support and product quality, with the GC Mini and HP Mini backed by two-year and five-year warranties respectively. The Mini Buckers are specially designed to carefully and comprehensively strip stems to preserve flowers, dovetailing perfectly with the company’s coveted commercial trimmers.

Delta-8 THC now reported by LightLab 3 Cannabis Analyzer

For Immediate Release    

Media Contact: Ashley Serafin

[email protected]

NEW LONDON, NH – April 29, 2021 – Orange Photonics is pleased to announce that the LightLab 3 Cannabis Analyzer now reports Delta-8 THC (D8-THC), an increasingly popular cannabinoid found in hemp-derived cannabis products. In addition, Orange Photonics is releasing a new Mobile Monitoring feature which gives users the ability to track sample test progress and view results from a smartphone.

LightLab 3 users can now monitor Delta-8 THC levels in cannabis products alongside the 11 other cannabinoids LightLab reports, offering a clear picture of the cannabinoid profile for a particular product.  “Product differentiation is a key aspect of a successful cannabis or hemp product line.” says Stephanie McArdle, President of Orange Photonics. “LightLab 3 users have a competitive advantage by leveraging real-time data to drive product value, and support quality, consistency and innovation. Delta-8 THC is a trending cannabinoid; its release is indicative of Orange Photonics’ commitment to keep pace with market developments.”

“Delta-8 THC is challenging even for laboratory testing equipment since it is so similar in structure to D9-THC.  Despite LightLab 3’s significantly lower cost and simpler operation, we are pleased to be able to measure Delta-8 THC on the platform.” explains Orange Photonics CTO, Dylan Wilks. “This is possible because our platform is dedicated to cannabis analysis, so it can be optimized in ways that general purpose laboratory equipment cannot.  In a sense, LightLab offers the best of both worlds: lab-grade HPLC technology combined with cannabis specific enhancements that make it easy for anyone to use.”

The new Mobile Monitoring feature release gives LightLab 3 users the ability to remotely track testing progress from start to finish from a smart phone.  The Mobile Monitoring feature is available on every LightLab 3 Cannabis Analyzer.

Leading U.S. CBD brand Premium Jane announces launch of delta-8 products

Leading American CBD brand Premium Jane has recently announced the launch of a range of hemp-derived delta-8 products. The products, which are available now for online order via Premium Jane’s official website, include a line of 625mg delta-8 Gummies as well as a potent line of 1000mg delta-8 tinctures.

Delta-8 is a structurally unique cannabis-derived compound that produces subtle effects on the brain and central nervous system. The ongoing rhetoric around delta-8 products is that they can work in much the same way as medical cannabis products, albeit with far more subdued psychoactive effects.

“One of the goals since day one here at Premium Jane has been to emphasize product research and development,” says Premium Jane co-founder Jeff Yauck. “Delta-8 is one of the most exciting avenues of recent hemp-derived product development, and our team has worked tirelessly to deliver formulas that are as user-friendly as they are effective.”

While research on delta-8 is limited, early indications suggest the compound may be beneficial for a wide range of ailments. And while the cannabinoid can produce a subtle “high” at excess doses, the effects are expected to be far different that standard THC.

“With this new delta-8 range,” Yauck says, “customers can expect the same exact level of quality, expertise, and craftsmanship that Premium Jane has always stood for. This is an incredibly exciting new avenue for us, and we are beyond thrilled to finally launch the delta-8 product lineup.”

Since delta-8 THC can be derived from hemp, a plant that is legal under U.S. Farm Bill legislation, brands like Premium Jane are taking the opportunity to supplement their range of products – which, up until this point, have consisted mostly of CBD formulas.

To browse the company’s current selection of delta-8 THC products, which are available now for online order to select U.S. states, readers can visit the official Premium Jane website at www.PremiumJane.com.

About Safe Harbor Financial

Safe Harbor Financial (formerly Safe Harbor Services) was established to help bridge the gap between those operating cannabis-related businesses (CRBs) and financial institutions.

Oregon CBD releases the first federally compliant CBDV rich cultivars to the US hemp market

Independence, OR – Hemp seed producing powerhouse Oregon CBD announced their release of two triploid CBDV rich cultivars this week, the firsts of their kind.

CBDV, or cannabidivarin, is one of hundreds of known cannabinoids that until recently has had little presence in the cannabis plant. Lauded for its potential medical benefits, its use by the casual consumer have yet to be fully discovered or embraced.

For the breeders at Oregon CBD, coaxing the cannabinoid out into the open has been a top priority for years.

“We started our varin breeding project after discovering what could basically be described as blips on a chromatogram five years ago,” comments Oregon CBD Co-Owner Seth Crawford. “It’s been a long journey, but we couldn’t be more excited to bring this novel cannabinoid out into the market.”

CBDV is chemically similar to CBD, but according to Crawford elicits calm, focused energy, coupled with muscle relaxation, and is the target of multiple pharmaceutical research commercialization efforts. Crawford describes their two varieties as capable of producing large, richly aromatic flowers that remain below 0.3% total THC even as trimmed flower.

For industrial hemp growers, the company’s claims that dried and trimmed flowers will remain below the federally mandated total THC requirements of 0.3% total THC is big news. Studies have shown the CBD gene produces THC at rates of around 25 parts CBD to 1 part THC, meaning any flower that contains over 7-8% CBD will most likely contain over 0.3% total THC.

According to Oregon CBD the answer is breeding varieties with half of their total cannabinoids as CBDV and around half of the remainder as CBD. Their research has shown total THC percentages are cut in half with the varin (CBDV) cannabinoid present and plants that are able to reach total cannabinoid percentages in the teens.

“Even extremely low CBD producing varieties that may only hit 7% total cannabinoids still have the risk of going hot,” says Crawford. “The rules of standard deviation show a percentage of the population will still hit over 0.3% unless you have a variety that maxes out around 5% CBD. No one wants a variety that low.”

In addition to being high in novel CBDV, their two new offerings Forbidden V Seedless and Pine Walker Seedless are labeled as triploids. The long celebrated and traditional triploid breeding process produces plants with 3 sets of chromosomes instead of 2. Triploids used in other crops such as grapes, hops, bananas, citrus, and watermelon are sterile, and also boast a variety of increases in production and aroma.

“Triploids are the future of cannabis,” adds Seth. “We saw between 30 to 100% production increases in our triploid field trials last summer, and even after coating them with pollen we found a maximum of around 3 seeds per plant. Not to mention a variety of added aromas you just don’t get in their diploid counterparts.”

The science behind breeding triploids is fairly straight forward. Cannabis in the wild has 2 sets of chromosome pairs, a copy from each parent. In rare-documented cases plants can mutate into tetraploids which have 4 sets of chromosome pairs. Tetraploids in other agricultural crops exhibit slightly larger fruits and flowers but few other differences. The magic, according to Crawford, is when a tetraploid is crossed with a diploid to produce a triploid.

“Anything in nature with an odd number of chromosome pairs is sterile,” adds Seth. “And for growers this means seedless flowers even if they are exposed to pollination. Seeded cannabis crops are essentially worthless on the trimmed flower market and a severe hit to biomass producers.”

Oregon CBD, which brands itself as an industrial hemp seed research and development firm, hosts what they call a laboratory based and field trial backed breeding program – while its new offerings maintain both USDA Organic and NSF Non-GMO Certifications.

For a market faced with “hot” CBD saturation and farmers experiencing heavy pollination issues around the nation, federally compliant CBDV rich triploid cannabis genetics could just be the answer for an industry in turmoil. For consumers it might just be the next big buzz. Only time will tell.

The product, Cannabis Businessowners Policy (CannaBOP), provides admitted coverage tailored to the unique needs of cannabis industry business owners.

There are currently 130 registered nonprofit medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Arizona, with 301,000 qualified medical marijuana patients1. With the legalization of adult recreational marijuana use passing in the November 2020 general election, the volume of business licenses, as well as consumers, is poised to increase significantly in the coming year.

 CUSTOM CONES USA

Dateline: [FIFE, WASHINGTON, March 2021] — In an ongoing effort to have the most comprehensive selection of cones, tubes, industrial machines, and packaging for the pre-roll sector of the hemp and cannabis industry, Custom Cones USA is proud to now offer the Mega Industrial Cannabis Grinder.

This high-capacity, industrial grinder is great for hemp farmers looking to scale production. Aside from just grinding for CBD oil extraction, farmers can also boost revenue by grinding and rolling any excess material into pre-roll hemp CBD cigarettes, which are growing in demand with the rest of the CBD sector.

Designed from the ground up for industrial hemp and cannabis producers, the Custom Cones USA’s pre-roll machines are some of the only machines in the industry designed specifically for hemp and cannabis.

The new Mega size and original industrial grinder feature a high-torque, low RPM motor, which grinds your hemp or cannabis flower without creating excess heat. Food processors, blenders, or grinding mills from other industries create a lot of heat during grinding, which degrades both cannabinoids and terpene content.

According to Grandview Research, the global CBD market was valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.2% from 2019 to 2025.

Harrison Bard, head of business development at Custom Cones USA, said that hemp/CBD farmers have been a source of growth for the company as farmers get equipped to venture into the pre-roll market.

According to a 2020 study of the pre-rolled cannabis industry from Bard’s Custom Cones USA, a B2B pre-roll supplies company, nearly 30 percent of pre-roll cannabis businesses survey were hemp/CBD cannabis manufacturers, taking their CBD flower/trim product and rolling it up into CBD-rich pre-rolled joints.

“As hemp farms dip into CBD pre-rolls and cigarettes, we have found there is a steep learning curve when you go from just growing the hemp to processing it into another product,” Bard said. “We try our best to be an education resource for our customers.”

Custom Cones USA takes an educational approach with all their clients and has machine and packaging options for farmers at any scale. Whether you are just starting up, scaling up, or expanding into new states – Custom Cones USA has a team of pre-roll experts ready to help grow your business.
