Arizona Tea Gets in on the Cannabis Market
Arizona Beverages is now focusing on another plant besides tea... The company announced that they have made a deal with Dixie Brands who sells cannabis infused foods, drinks and creams.
According to CNBC, Don Vultiaggio, chairman of Arizona Beverages said in a release:
“The cannabis market is an important emerging category, and we’ve maintained our independence as a private business to be positioned to lead and seize generation-defining opportunities exactly like this one. The cannabis category is an ideal space to bring the flavor and fun of AriZona into new and exciting products.”
They plan to start out with vape pens and THC-infused gummies; based on those sales, they might expand their products even further.
CNBC reports that Dixie, which currently operates in six cities in the U.S., will now begin to manufacture and distribute their products under Arizona's brand name through licensed dispensaries.
As of right now, there is no word as to how much they will cost or when the products will be available, but I'd guess they are planning on charging more than a $0.99...
