Social consumption pioneer and innovator launches five soda flavors
OAKLAND, CA (June 18, 2019) – The next evolution of drinking with friends has arrived in the Golden State! Keef Brands, a leading developer, producer and distributor of cannabis-infused beverages, edibles, concentrates and more, has launched its award-winning portfolio of cannabis-infused sodas, Keef Cola, in Northern California. Keef Cola reflects a revolutionary wave of social consumption, as the quality of taste-making sodas are poised to attract savvy cannabis consumers, while the approachable flavors reminiscent of soda fountain staples also welcome the canna-curious to pop the cap and take a sip.
First introduced nearly a decade ago in Boulder, CO, Keef Cola is made with high-quality CO2 cannabis extract and pure cane sugar. Each 12-fluid ounce bottle contains 10 milligrams of THC. Five bold and refreshing flavors will be available at select dispensaries throughout Northern California for responsible adult-use. What sets the product apart is its fast-acting effects and the ability to bring people together and make social connections while enjoying infused beverages. Keef Cola will also launch in Southern California later this summer.
“We’re thrilled to be back in the California marketplace,” said CEO Erik Knutson, who in 2010 with his brother Kelly Knutson co-founded Keef Brands as one of the first companies to infuse soda with cannabis. “Connecting with California consumers, both the canna-curious and experienced enthusiasts, helps us further our mission to strengthen a positive cannabis culture and community. By offering another way to consume cannabis in the form of high-grade beverage products, we are able to complement social, positive and healthy lifestyles.”
Keef Cola flavors now available in Northern California include:
- Keef Cola Original: The original Keef beverage, a staple flavor that has consistently delighted consumers for years. True to its name, Keef Cola delivers an original cola taste similar to those found in timeless, old-school soda fountains.
- Bubba Kush Root Beer: Winner of the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Edible; this flavor also mixes extremely well with ice cream to create an infused root beer float.
- Blue Razz:A blend of raspberry and blueberry flavors, creating the ultimate berry soda.
- Orange Kush: Refreshing and tangy notes of orange citrus flavor.
- Purple Passion: Classic grape soda flavor with carefully calculated amounts of sweetness and fizz.
Keef is working with CannaCraft to manufacture and distribute the products in California. In addition to the soda line, Keef Brands include Keef Shots, Keef Sparkling, Keef Life – a lightly flavored, low calorie beverage, and a branded concentrate line of distillate PAX pods. Keef is currently available in Colorado, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. For more information, visit keefbrands.com.
