Available at SLANG's Burlington Ceres Collaborative Dispensary, New Alchemy Naturals Edibles Deliver Quick Onset and Consistent, Reliable, Consumption Experience
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 12, 2023) - SLANG Worldwide Inc. (CNSX: SLNG) (OTCQB: SLGWF) ("SLANG" or the "Company"), a leading global cannabis consumer packaged goods (CPG) company with a diversified portfolio of popular brands, announced today that it has launched its first line of fast-acting cannabis-infused gummies under its Alchemy Naturals all-natural THC gummy brand. Available in Vermont at SLANG's Ceres Collaborative located in downtown Burlington, and soon in dispensaries across Vermont via wholesale-Alchemy Naturals' new fast-acting gummies harness TiME INFUSION® (Thermodynamic Individual Molecular Encapsulation) technology from Azuca, expediting the onset time to between five and fifteen minutes.
Designed for a stackable, social and session-able cannabis consumption experience, Alchemy Naturals' fast-acting gummies aim to meet Vermonters' demand for a consistent cannabis edible that yields effects swiftly. In collaboration with Azuca, which develops best-in-class, rapid-onset delivery systems and advanced formulations, Alchemy Naturals' new gummies launched with two inviting flavors-Blackberry Lime and Cranberry Orange, in perfectly dosed 5mg packages.
"Azuca has invested a lot of time into research around creating a fast-acting solution for edible products in the cannabis industry," stated Brittany Hallett, VP, Marketing of SLANG. "Our Alchemy edibles brand has been widely recognized for its flavor and all-natural ingredients. The opportunity to add Azuca's technology to our already uniquely formalized gummies makes them even more desirable to our consumer base as it adds the additional layer of providing a consistent cannabis experience. We are confident in Azuca's research and have seen the success that they have achieved in bringing this technology to the high-demand THC edible market."
"We're thrilled to partner with Alchemy Naturals for the launch of its new cannabis-infused gummy," said Kim Sanchez Rael, Azuca Co-founder and CEO. "The collaboration combines our innovative TiME INFUSION® with Alchemys' commitment to high-quality, delicious products that support daily wellness. Together, we're revolutionizing the cannabis industry by delivering fast-acting, great-tasting edibles that provide a controllable and enjoyable experience for consumers."
Alchemy Naturals and Azuca recognize that one of the biggest challenges consumers face with edibles is the unpredictable onset time. In addition, the lag between consumption and effects may compel consumers to keep on eating the edibles-and then they've had too much. Alchemy Naturals aims to solve this problem by providing consumers with predictable, dose-able products they can trust.
While traditional edibles convert Delta-9-THC in the digestive tract to 11-Hydroxy-THC, Alchemy Naturals gummies contain individually encapsulated Delta-9-THC cannabinoids. The technology provides greater cannabinoid bioavailability that works at the molecular level to bypass the liver and enter the bloodstream immediately. For most, this means onset in less than 15 minutes and a Delta-9-THC experience that lasts two to four hours.
Azuca's infusion process also provides consumers with a true Delta-9 THC experience-a euphoric high akin to inhaling cannabis. This proprietary formulation gives an uplifting, lighter and more euphoric sensation than the heavy effect of traditional edibles.
