The Valens Company and High12 Launch DAIZE Premium Vape Cartridges
Kelowna, B.C., October 29, 2020 – The Valens Company Inc. (TSX: VLNS) (OTCQX: VLNCF) (the “Company” or “The Valens Company”), a global leader in the end-to-end development and manufacturing of innovative, cannabinoid-based products, today announced the launch of 510 vape cartridges under a custom manufacturing agreement with High12 Brands (“High12”) for its newly-introduced DAIZE brand.
The DAIZE brand line of vape products will offer experienced consumers unique and potent formulations with premium cannabis oil made from a curated selection of sought-after cannabis strains. The 0.5g carts, DAIZE Lemon Limo, DAIZE Mango Mercy, and DAIZE Alpha Berry, are the first products to be released under the new brand. All cartridges contain full spectrum winterized CO2 pure cannabis extract to preserve the plant’s flavour and aroma, with no fillers or additives.
- DAIZE Lemon Limo is sourced from premium sativa-dominant cannabis flower, rich in limonene and brings a fresh blast of citrus fruit with a hint of spice.
- DAIZE Mango Mercy is sourced from premium hybrid cannabis flower, rich in myrcene and tropical notes with light and earthy undertones.
- DAIZE Alpha Berry is sourced from premium indica-dominant flower, rich in alpha-pinene and reminiscent of ripe blackberries with piney notes.
All DAIZE vape cartridges are compatible with 510 batteries and are made with a customized high-grade stainless-steel mouthpiece and quartz glass chamber. The three products will be available online and at select retailers in Alberta and British Columbia in mid-November, with Ontario to follow shortly after. The Valens Company and High12 will continue to work together to optimize the DAIZE brand portfolio and bring various innovative vape products to Canadian consumers.
