Is this cannabis’ “Diet Coke Moment”?
Los Angeles, California — Award-winning SoCal cannabis brand KushyPunch releases the very first sugar-free cannabis gummy on the market, delivering a game-changing new edible option for consumers with strict dietary requirements.
This new lychee sugar free THC gummy is a healthier take on their iconic and top-selling 100mg strawberry sativa gummy, which was recently featured at the top of a Los Angeles Times round-up on edibles.
Containing just 2.5 calories per dose, and with a low glycemic index and insulin response, this gummy is geared towards those looking to minimize sugar intake without compromising on taste or quality.
“Coca-Cola spent more than 20 years working on Diet Coke. They wouldn’t release anything under their brand name that was less than perfect,” starts Ruben Cross, founder and CEO of KushyPunch.
“We applied that same mentality to our new sugar-free gummy. We wanted to get this exactly right before it became part of the Kushy brand.”
KushyPunch’s sugar-free gummy has been a long time in the making for Cross, who was recently named one of High Times’ top 100 cannabis industry professionals. His initial foray into cannabis in 2014 was spurred by a desire to create a consistent, healthy product for patients with specific dietary needs and limited consumption options.
“When I looked at the edible market back in 2014, I saw a lot of high calorie, high carbohydrate, high sugar products that were really inconsistent in their THC levels and very vague when it came to dosing,” Cross told leading cannabis publication Leafly in 2018.
