One of Canada’s cannabis giants has revealed the new generation of cannabis products for the country’s legal marijuana market.

On Thursday (November 28), Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC,TSX:WEED) unveiled its line-up of new wave cannabis products during an event dubbed “Flower Forward: The Future of Cannabis,” in which the company revealed the look of its new line of vape pens, infused beverages and chocolates.

At the event, marijuana enthusiasts got the chance to smell, taste and feel some of what so-called Cannabis 2.0 will have to offer.

The new product offerings indicate a shift for Canopy Growth from a cannabis firm to a tech company, Canopy Growth President Rade Kovacevic told the Investing News Network (INN), and the products give the company a chance to expand its existing market.

According to Kovacevic, the transition to 2.0 will represent an equal footing in the sales race between licensed producers (LPs) and the unregulated market in Canada.

“It’s the first time that the legal industry has had an opportunity to compete with the black market … while allowing us to create new products that we believe will disrupt not only the cannabis industry, but the beverage alcohol industry as well,” Kovacevic said.

The executive told INN the initial launch will present consumers with over 30 new products in the market. Additionally, the company is working on 20 more products for the 2.0 stage.

A large portion of the new offerings is made up of the company’s beverage lines. There’s the Tweed Ready to Drink line that are pairs tonic, soda and ginger ale with some of Tweed’s most popular strains of marijuana.

There’s also two sparkling water lines, Houseplant and Quatreau, that offer up to 2.5 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and well as a half-and-half option of 2 milligrams of (cannabidiol) CBD and 2 milligrams of THC.

“I think there’s opportunities to convert people from the illicit market to the legal markets through these products,” Kovacevic told INN. “You have products like our beverages … (that) don’t necessarily exist in the illicit market. And so I think they’re a great opportunity to bring new people into the sector.”
