1906 "Drops" product released to excellent reviews and strong sales
BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / February 11, 2021 / AmeriCann, Inc. (OTCQB:ACAN), a cannabis company that develops state-of-the-art cultivation, processing and product manufacturing facilities, announced that 1906, a leading national brand, has launched its respected cannabis products out of AmeriCann's flagship development, the Massachusetts Cannabis Center ("MCC").
1906 was established in Colorado five years ago and has recently expanded to Illinois, Oklahoma and now Massachusetts. AmeriCann's MCC provided 1906 with a product manufacturing solution with scale to participate in the rapidly expanding Massachusetts market.
1906's signature line of fast-acting, swallowable pills (known as Drops) range from 2.5-5mg of THC and 2.5-25mg of CBD per dose, carry no taste or aroma, have zero calories, and are gluten- and allergen-free. Available in six formulations, Drops address adults' most important and pervasive everyday wellness needs: better sleep, reduced anxiety, sustained focus, more energy, brighter mood, and increased libido.
1906 Drops recently debuted at more than 20 dispensaries in Massachusetts, a major milestone for introducing the East Coast to low-dose, fast-acting cannabis formulas designed for daily self-care. Massachusetts is a booming market that registered $700 million in sales last year-up 56% from 2019-despite the halt of recreational sales for two months due to the onset of COVID-19. The commonwealth also stands out among U.S. cannabis markets for having the highest average purchase of more than $95.
"AmeriCann identified the need for quality low-dose products in Massachusetts," stated AmeriCann president Tim Keogh. "We selected 1906 as the ideal partner to meet this important consumer category. 1906 Drops appeal to a rapidly growing segment of cannabis consumers in an attractive, convenient form."
The Massachusetts Cannabis Center is located on a 52-acre parcel in Southeastern Massachusetts. The MCC project is permitted for 987,000 sq. ft. of cannabis cultivation and processing infrastructure. 1906 Drops are produced and distributed at Building 1 of the MCC. AmeriCann receives 15% of all gross sales produced from Building 1, including wholesale sales of 1906 products.
"The Massachusetts Cannabis Center provided an ideal launching pad for 1906 in the Northeast," said Peter Barsoom, 1906 co-founder and CEO. "Having quality cannabis cultivation and manufacturing together on one campus is a great combination for producing a quality product at scale."
