VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Chemesis International Inc. (CSE: CSI) (OTC: CADMF) (the “Company” or “Chemesis”), is pleased to announce it will be entering into the cannabis infused beverages market. Chemesis will leverage licences and assets it has recently acquired to build out production, storage, and a transportation network for its cannabis infused beverages. The cannabis beverages category includes sports drinks, teas, sodas, coffees, shots, water, and other health and wellness beverages.
With cannabis sales projected to triple from approximately $5.4 billion USD in 2015, to $16 billion USD in 2020, according to a market research, Chemesis sees a significant growing opportunity in the beverages market1. Entering into the cannabis beverages market is the next logical step for the Company, as its current facilities and licenses allow this to be accomplished in a relatively short period of time. The Company can accomplish this by leveraging its state licenses for production, distribution, and transportation. Chemesis intends to provide white labelling services for companies, as well as introducing beverages for its own brands. Chemesis will be using the recently acquired Desert Zen Fulfillment facility for this expansion and anticipates products to be launched in Q1 2019.
“Entering into the cannabis infused beverage market is an extremely important step for Chemesis,” said CEO Edgar Montero. “The cannabis market is expanding into more product categories, and Chemesis is identifying opportunities that will build long term value and consistent revenues. Our existing licenses and facilities will allow us to expand our portfolio of products without the added regulatory delays. The company will continue to ensure it expands and creates a footprint in markets and product spaces that align with our ambitious business plan.”
