Following Minnesota’s new regulations that allow medical cannabis patients to purchase cannabis-infused edibles, Goodness Growth Holdings has introduced gummies to its Vireo brand.
The addition of edibles into Minnesota’s medical cannabis program offers an additional and sought-after delivery method for patients.
“Minnesota’s medical cannabis program allows for people with a variety of different medical diagnoses to seek relief using medical cannabis,” said Kyle Kingsley, M.D., Goodness Growth chairman and CEO. “The more options we are able to offer our patients, the better we are able to meet their different medical needs. And patients can rest assured that our gummies, like all of our products, are tested by licensed, independent quality assurance laboratories to ensure they meet strict standards for purity, potency and quality.”
Vireo’s gummies are designed to meet the needs of a variety of cannabis patients. At launch, the gummies are available in 10-milligram THC formulations and in Key Lime, Concord Grape, Hawaiian Pineapple and Oxnard Strawberry flavors. An additional formulation, with equal amounts of THC and CBD and in Alfonso Mango flavor, is expected to follow. Vireo gummies are available in all eight of the company’s Green Goods dispensaries in Minnesota.
The launch of Vireo gummies in Minnesota comes after the company’s launch of edible gummies and chews under the HiColor brand in Maryland in late 2021, where it has since expanded to include seasonal flavors and new formulations, and the expansion of HiColor brand to the New York market in June 2022.
