Earlier this month we shared a press release issued by Canadian MMPR LP CannTrust regarding its CANNCUP, a Keurig-compatible cannabis-infused coffee pod. CBC News shed some additional light on the product’s potential to come to market:
CannTrust, which is based in Vaughan, Ont., has applied for a licence to produce and sell the pod product to Canadian medical marijuana users.
“We’re ready to go, other than the fact we need approval from Health Canada,” says (CEO Eric) Paul, who is a trained pharmacist.
Paul is optimistic the new Liberal government, which has pledged to legalize marijuana, will expand the rules.
Health Canada told CBC News it’s aware of CannTrust’s request to bring cannabis pods to market. The agency is currently “working to determine if these pods would be permissible,” spokesman Sean Upton told CBC News in an email.
