Plus Products Re-Launches Best-Selling Limited Edition Gummies for Pride 2021, Collaborates with Transgender, Gender-Variant and Intersex Justice Project
SAN MATEO, Calif., June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQX: PLPRF) (the “Company” or “PLUS”), a cannabis and hemp-branded products company in California, today announced the return of its best-selling1 limited edition Rainbow Sherbet cannabis-infused gummies for Pride 2021. As part of its commitment to acknowledge, elevate and celebrate the intersectionality of race and queer life, PLUS is collaborating with the San Francisco-based Transgender, Gender-Variant & Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP) to donate a portion of proceeds from each tin sold to further their mission of ending the human rights abuses committed against Black and Brown TGI people inside of California prisons, jails, detention centers and beyond.
As we enter the month of June, a time to celebrate the progress made for LGBTQ+ rights, we acknowledge the intersectionality of queer life and race. Queer rights are civil rights, and we can’t elevate and celebrate the message of Pride without elevating and celebrating the Black, Brown and trans voices that founded – and continue to lead – the fight for dignity, life and equality for all.
Jake Heimark, CEO and Co-Founder of PLUS Products
There is still work to be done for full equal rights for all LGBTQ+ people, especially Black and trans LGBTQ+ people who face higher incidences of violence within the prison system and beyond.

“This will be the fourth year we have had the opportunity to partner with a local organization during pride month, and we have always been thrilled with the support we have seen for the product,” stated Mr. Heimark. “Last year we sold almost 60,000 units and are looking forward to exceeding that number this year.”
