Just in time for summer, Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. has announced the launch of RADsicles, a cannabis-infused frozen edible meant to help consumers beat the heat with an intoxicating twist.
In late December, Heritage Cannabis reported it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Canada-based Premium 5 Ltd.
Part of the Premium 5 brand, RAD, the frozen edible treats will be available in what Heritage Cannabis calls four “nostalgic” flavours: Grape, Blue Raspberry, Cherry and Cream Soda. A company statement does not specify a suggested retail price or the potency of the products.
The hope is to soon have the frozen pops on store shelves across Canada, but so far they will only be available in Ontario via the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS). As of this week, OCS had reportedly received its first shipment and products have been ordered and shipped into Alberta and B.C. For Canada in general, Heritage Cannabis reports that RAD is set to introduce 21 stock-keeping unit (SKU) listings across the country. The idea is to launch a number of new SKUs in the coming months.
“This will be an exciting summer for Heritage as we add to our portfolio of popular products with first-of-its-kind recreational and medical offerings, staying at the leading edge of product innovation in order to deliver consumers products they want, and capture and maintain shelf-space across Canada,” David Schwede, the company’s president of recreational, says in the statement.
