TORONTO, May 23, 2019 /CNW/ - SLANG Worldwide Inc. (CNSX: SLNG), ("SLANG" or the "Company"), a leading global cannabis consumer packaged goods company with a robust portfolio of renowned brands distributed across 2,600 stores in 11 US states, is pleased to launch its latest vaporizer product, the Firefly 2+. Responding to demand for its sold-out predecessor, Firefly 2+ enhances the flagship product's purpose-built dry herb and extracts technology and premium experience while broadening accessibility with a lower price.
The critically acclaimed Firefly products leverage the most advanced portable technology available to enjoy the benefits of dry herb and extracts without smoking. The hardware's dynamic convection heating technology, activated in only three seconds, creates an absorbable on-demand vapor, offering the plant at its freshest and highest fidelity. The free mobile app customizes the heating technology across the widest available temperature range (200-500°F) for dry herb and extracts. Vapor purity is supported by the hardware design: Firefly's award-winning designers crafted the hardware from the same high-grade alloys used on NASA spaceships.
The release of the new Firefly 2+ reinforces SLANG's leadership in vaporization products across all price points, from ultra premium to entry level, value price segmentations. Firefly was acquired by SLANG in 2019 and has been inventing the most advanced purpose-built technology for cannabis since 2011.
SLANG Co-Founder and CEO Peter Miller said, "As a leader in premium portable vaporizers, Firefly stands out for its technical innovation and unparalleled design. SLANG is thrilled to help more customers around the world discover the Firefly 2+ and enjoy new Firefly products to come."
Firefly co-founder and Chief Technology Officer MJ Williams said, "The Firefly team invents simple elegant vaporizers for truly great cannabis experiences, and our newest Firefly 2+ will help connoisseurs and new consumers alike do just that."
Firefly 2+ will be available for purchase online and in retail stores around the world starting May 28. The product retails for US$249.
