After 25 years of creating signature craft soda flavors and featuring fan-submitted photo labels on every bottle, Seattle-based Jones Soda Co. entered a new category with the Mary Jones brand of cannabis-infused sodas.
Mary Jones 10 mg Cannabis-Infused Sodas are available in Jones’ fan-favorite varietals of Root Beer, Berry Lemonade, Green Apple, and Orange & Cream.
Every flavor tastes like the Jones Soda original, thanks to Jones flavor scientists who have spent more than two decades as innovators in flavor and have now adapted their iconic recipes for cannabis, the company says. These sodas are sold in single-serving 12-ounce glass bottles with a four-pack carrier.
The new Mary Jones products also continue Jones Soda’s tradition of using photographs submitted by consumers on their bottle labels and printing quotes from fans under the bottle caps. These traditions of getting fans involved with the brand through self-expression, along with unique flavors like FuFu Berry and partnerships with partners from UFC champion Julianna Pena to Sub Pop Records, have built a community of passionate fans that has continued to grow.
Mary Jones keeps things do-it-yourself (DIY) by offering a custom T-shirt builder enabling fans, influencers and budtenders to create individualized designs to wear or list for sale on the MaryMart commerce site where Mary Jones shares profits with creators, it says.
Other Mary Jones products scheduled for launch in California later this year include a 100 mg cannabis-infused soda packaged in a 16-ounce, 10-serving can; a 1000 mg syrup cannabis tincture designed for mixing with other drinks, using as a food topping or sipping; carbonated candy 2.5 mg tablets for flavorful microdoses on the go; and 5 mg cannabis-infused gummies shaped like miniature Jones Soda bottles with a fun mini-four-pack carrier for a build-it-yourself downloadable DIY project, the company says. Plans are underway for additional products as well as expansion into other legal adult-use states, it adds.
"Jones Soda is a legendary brand built from bold flavors and doing bold things,” said Bohb Blair, chief brand officer for Mary Jones Cannabis Co. and chief marketing officer for Jones Soda Co., in a statement. “Whether you’re a canna-newbie or a cannaseur, our sodas are the most exciting flavors in cannabis today, and our product roadmap will keep our fans delighted by what's to come.”
In California, Mary Jones has partnered with Kiva Sales and Service (KSS), distribution and sales; Tinley Beverage Co., cannabis beverage manufacturing; and SōRSE Technology, emulsion and formulation.
Mary Jones sodas are available at launch at California dispensaries including Sweet Flower locations around Los Angeles, Green Goddess in Venice Beach, and Embarc in northern California.
