Selling in California and Colorado, Cheeba Chews manufactures more than 50K pieces of its cannabis-infused candy each week. The company’s kitchen was originally in the home of CEO James Howler, but it has progressed since 2009 to a more automated process that has more scale and creates a more consistent dosage.
The company has had to use an engineering firm to design equipment to put the product into the packaging, which was reinvented as well to conform with Colorado regulations limiting dosing in the adult-use market to 10mg per serving. Interestingly, the company, which has 30 employees, is entirely self-funded.
