Jones Soda Co. announced the expansion of its Mary Jones brand of cannabis-infused sodas with a new 100 mg THC product slated for California that will come in the same four Jones fan-favorite flavors as the popular 10 mg THC sodas that launched the line this summer.
The new cannabis beverage will be packaged in 16-ounce resealable, child-resistant, multi-serve cans designed for consumers to pace their consumption as they wish, and to share with friends, the company says.
These boldly packaged “tallboy” cans will deliver THC-infused versions of Jones’ Root Beer, Berry Lemonade, Green Apple and Orange & Cream sodas that have been among the company’s top sellers for 25 years, it notes. Each flavor tastes exactly like its mainline Jones Soda counterpart, thanks to award-winning Jones flavor scientists who have customized Jones’ signature craft soda recipes to accommodate the addition of THC emulsions, it says.
“The launch of Mary Jones 10 mg bottles was one of the most successful brand launches we’ve seen at KSS, with deliveries to more than 120 retailers in the first 60 days,” said Brooks Jorgensen, president at Kiva Sales & Service, in a statement. “We’re excited to build on this success with the upcoming launch of Mary Jones 100 mg cans, which will meet the demand from consumers looking for higher-dose sodas that taste great.”
Mark Murray, president and CEO of Jones Soda Co., added: “Our strong Mary Jones launch validates the strategic decision we made to enter the cannabis industry in order to leverage our brand equity, diversify our portfolio, and move into a profitable high-growth category to drive the company’s future. With our ambitious product roadmap and new partnerships enabling us to expand to other states, I’m confident that our Cannabis Division will be instrumental in our growth in 2023 and beyond.”
