Cannabis Global (MCTC) launches first official distribution of market-fresh THC-V beverages

Bethan Rose Jenkins, Cannabis News Writer/Editorial

Product beta testers are about to try something that could influence what cannabis consumers add to their dispensary shopping lists in the future — THC-V beverages. ‘THC-V’ is an abbreviation for ‘tetrahydrocannabivarin’. The phytocannabinoid is similar to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) at the molecular level, but is usually non-intoxicating.

Cannabis Global, Inc. is the name of the company that is making THC-V beverages available to the consumer demographic. Publicly-traded, this science-focused cannabinoid and hemp extract company is developing a range of technologies specifically designed for the infusion and delivery of plant-derived cannabinoids.

Distribution of THC-V beverages will be provided to product beta testers over a 30-day period in the form of infused teas and coffees. According to Cannabis Global’s announcement, the product development stage has already been completed; production for full general release will not be delayed during the beta testing period.

THC-V beverages company under utilizes a one-step dosing system

Three internally developed technologies have been merged into Cannabis Global’s manufacturing process for THC-V beverages; provisional patents have been filed on all three unique technologies.

Firstly, a specific process created by Cannabis Global was utilized to develop controlled-release nanoparticles that contain 70 percent THC-V — a process that took place inside a laboratory with pharmaceutical-grade production equipment. This technology allows for faster production and dosing among consumers, says the company.

“Secondly, Cannabis Global’s manufacturing process for THC-V beverages harnesses the power of an internally-developed powerization. Thirdly, it acts as a one-step dosing system  thisOur unique infusion and production technologies provide Cannabis Global with a product purity advantage as well as a clear path to low cost leadership,” said CEO Arman Tabatabaei. “The THC-V cannabinoids are synthesized and entirely free of impurities. While there were some upfront technology development and intellectual property protection costs, we expect our ongoing variable production costs to be less than half of any potential competitor. Via our technologies, we turn one of the cannabis industry’s most expensive items – pure THC-V cannabinoids – into a cost-effective solution that sets a new standard for product purity in the cannabinoid-based products marketplace.”

Currently, the range of THC-V beverages being produced by Cannabis Global include three separate and distinctive blends of coffee pods, and organic green, black and pu’er teas. All products will be fully compostable and packaged in single-serving formats for ease of consumption.

Technology for THC-V beverages to be used for other rare cannabinoids

“We think we have rewritten the exotic cannabinoid cost equation via our Project Varin.”

Those were the words of CEO Tabatabaei during a recent interview with reporters. He claims that Cannabis Global’s spectacular innovations in products and technology are thanks to the company’s ‘Project Varin’.

Since kicking off last year, Project Varin has successfully invented a range of new technologies to infuse and manufacture rare cannabinoids, with THC-V being the most successful effort so far. In the future, Cannabis Global has set its sights on processing and infusing a range of other naturally-occurring cannabinoids; cannabigerol (CBG) is expected to be the next cannabis-derived compound used in the company’s drinks. 

It should be noted that the cannabinoid THC-V is currently not scheduled at the federal level. All THC-V beverages contain less than the acceptable federal tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) limit of 0.3 percent. Cannabis Global does not claim to cure, diagnose, prevent or treat any medical conditions or illnesses. Individuals aged below 18 are not advised to try the company’s THC-V beverages, all of which contain no impurities; e.g. herbicide residue, heavy metals, nitrates and pesticides.
