TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, Fluent Beverages ("Fluent") proudly unveiled Everie, the first non-alcohol CBD-infused beverage of its portfolio. Everie is a refreshing and delicious 98 per cent pure CBD-infused beverage with all-natural flavours.
Proudly manufactured in partnership with High Park at its state-of-the-art cannabis manufacturing facility located in London, Ontario and backed by a leadership team with over 73 years of combined experience in beverages, a commitment to quality and a consistently positive experience is at the core of Fluent.
With that standard comes Everie's carefully crafted infusion – using CBD Isolate, a purified form of CBD – delivering 98 per cent pure CBD, with less than 0.05mg of THC per serving.
"We know that consumers are concerned about products that claim to be CBD-only, but which actually have significant THC content as well; specifically, with products coming from the unregulated market. To build trust with consumers, we need to ensure that we are delivering what is promised, and that is what Fluent is going to do," says Becky Lindsey, Chief Marketing Officer, Fluent Beverages. "Everie is made with CBD so pure that adult consumers can choose Everie with complete confidence – and no surprises."
Available in select Canadian provinces starting in December, Everie will be offered in ready-to-brew teas in a variety of custom blends that are specially grown on small estates. In early 2020, Everie sparkling beverages will become available.
Whether teas or sparkling, each will contain 10 mg of CBD per serving. Everie teas will be available in 3 gram biodegradable tea bags, featuring three flavourful blends: Lavender Chamomile, Vanilla Rooibos, and Peach Ginger Green. Everie sparkling beverages will be available in a variety of fruit flavours, including Lemon-Lime, Mango-Passionfruit and Watermelon-Dragon Fruit.
"We know adult Canadians are going to be faced with many new and exciting products to choose from come December 17th," says Lindsey. "We believe that our approach to flavour, taste, and CBD purity will make Everie the stand-out choice for those seeking to enjoy and explore CBD-infused beverages."
