According to media reports, the new one-gram 510-thread vape products are a part of the company’s Cannabis 2.0 product line. Commenting on the launch, Angelo Tsebelis, CEO of WeedMD, said that the launch of new flavored vapes is part of the Cannabis 2.0 portfolio’s expansion plans in its Saturday brand products. He further added that they are looking forward to improving the market appeal for their products while also keeping commercial growth plans.
Vaporized products like vapes are in high demand in Canada since the Senate passed the Cannabis Act in 2018. As per reports, Cannabis product sales for the first seven months of 2019 accounted for more than C$524 million. These numbers are expected to grow with even more fervor as the number of legal outlets grows in the coming months.
WeedMD also reported an 8% growth for the third quarter of 2020, with sales amounting to a healthy C$6.3 million. The company maintains that its branded vape products are in the Top 5 of the total number of vape brands, which stands roughly at 30. Before the launch of Saturday branded products, the company had launched Pedro’s Sweet Sativa and Ghost Train Haze – both from its Color Cannabis brand, which received a healthy reception.
