VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 13, 2019 /CNW/ -- Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. (CSE: LDS), (OTCQX: LDSYF), (Frankfurt: LD6, WKN: A14XHT) ("LDS" or the "Company") announces that artwork has been finalized for the new CannaStrips™ packaging and has been delivered to the printer.
LDS and its subsidiary, CSPA Group, Inc., have been struggling with the numerous changes to the state packaging regulations which were passed in the last fourteen months. The CannaStrips™ packaging was delayed by the continuous regulatory changes to packaging size, verbiage, warning, and informational placements. The State of California has stated that the most recent changes to the packaging guidelines will be effective until 2020. Those changes have been incorporated into what the Company hopes to be the final CannaStrips™ packaging artwork and reviewed by CSPA Group's distributors, Sacramento advisers and corporate and cannabis legal teams to ensure compliance with California law. As of today, the artwork is in the queue to be printed. There will be three different variations of CannaStrips™ to be printed. First is the THC 10mg version which will replace the product that is currently in stores. That packaging required stickers to incorporate the latest regulatory changes to keep the product compliant pending printing of the final packaging. CSPA Group is adding a CBD version with less than 2% THC and a version named 80/20 (80% CBD/20% THC). All versions of CannaStrips™ will have ten individual strips to a package.
The Company's CEO, Brad Eckenweiler, stated, "The uncertainty of the state regulations has proven to be our single most challenging obstacle with regards to the production and distribution of CannaStrips™. The knowledge that we now have on the final version of the packaging regulations will make it possible to manufacture and distribute a volume of CannaStrips™ throughout California sufficient to meet the needs of every potential customer."
LDS President, Casey Fenwick, stated, "I personally spent time in some of the dispensaries for our product launch and I am more confident than ever that there is a significant market for CannaStrips™. The positive responses from customers in the first couple of weeks have confirmed that the market is ready for a smokeless, convenient and discreet method of cannabis use. The CannaStrips™ delivery system works, now our goal is to get them into every retail store in California as quickly as possible." The Company will continue to update the market as events occur.
