Jones Soda Co. has expanded its Mary Jones brand of cannabis-infused sodas with a new 100 milligram THC product. The sodas will come in the four popular Jones Soda flavors as the popular 10 milligram THC sodas. The new cannabis beverage will be packaged in 16 ounce resealable, child-resistant, multi-serve cans designed for consumers to pace their consumption as they wish and to share with friends.
“Our strong Mary Jones launch validates the strategic decision we made to enter the cannabis industry in order to leverage our brand equity, diversify our portfolio, and move into a profitable high-growth category to drive the company’s future,” said Mark Murray, president and CEO of Jones Soda Co. “Building on our initial success, this new higher-potency 100 milligram product unlocks a valuable category with a higher value product aimed at a more mature cannabis consumer. With our ambitious product roadmap and new partnerships enabling us to expand to other states, I’m confident that our Cannabis Division will be instrumental in our growth in 2023 and beyond.”
These boldly packaged ‘tallboy’ cans will deliver THC-infused versions of Jones’ Root Beer, Berry Lemonade, Green Apple and Orange & Cream sodas that have been among the company’s top sellers for 25 years. Each flavor tastes exactly like its mainline Jones Soda counterpart, thanks to award-winning Jones flavor scientists who have customized Jones’ signature craft soda recipes to accommodate the addition of THC emulsions.
This new 100 milligram product introduction follows the successful California launch of the Mary Jones brand with 10 milligram cannabis-infused sodas in June. The line has surpassed market forecasts with rapid placement in more than 150 dispensaries, including MedMen locations scheduled to begin carrying Mary Jones 10 milligram and 100 milligram products this month.
“The launch of Mary Jones 10 milligram bottles was one of the most successful brand launches we’ve seen at KSS, with deliveries to more than 120 retailers in the first 60 days,” said Brooks Jorgensen, president at Kiva Sales & Service. “We’re excited to build on this success with the upcoming launch of Mary Jones 100 milligram cans, which will meet the demand from consumers looking for higher-dose sodas that taste great.”
