Bhang Cannabis-infused Chocolates Now Available in Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan
MIAMI, Feb. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bhang Inc. (“Bhang” or the “Company”) (CSE: BHNG) (OTCQX: BHNGF), a global cannabis CPG brand company with an extensive, award-winning portfolio of products, announced today that its cannabis-infused milk and dark chocolates are now available for sale in Canada through its joint venture with Indiva Limited (TSXV:NDVA) (OTCQX:NDVAF). Bhang’s chocolate can be purchased in Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan and will soon be available in Manitoba and Nova Scotia.
As previously announced in April 2018, Indiva and Bhang have a 50/50 joint venture to produce and distribute Bhang Chocolate. Through the joint venture, Indiva creates Bhang Chocolate in its state-of-the-art facility based in London, Ontario. Each chocolate contains 10 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and comes from sustainably sourced cacao. Chocolates are scored into four pieces, so they are perfect for sharing. Looking ahead, Bhang and Indiva intend to bring cannabidiol (CBD) chocolates to Canadian consumers later in the year.
We’re fortunate to have established partners like Indiva to help us provide Canadian consumers with the highest quality of edibles available in the recently launched Cannabis 2.0 market. Deloitte analysts estimate that the Canadian market for edibles, extracts and topicals could be worth C$2.7 billion annually, with cannabis edibles accounting for C$1.6 billion alone.
Jamie Pearson, Bhang President & CEO
We see significant opportunity in the Canadian market and are proud to bring our exceptional chocolate to our friends up north.
