Organigram develops technology to produce liquid, powdered cannabinoid products
In anticipation of the legalization of adult use recreational cannabis edibles in Canada, Organigram has developed a proprietary nano-emulsification technology that will allow for the production of both liquid and powdered cannabinoid products. In addition to the company's previously announced plans to launch a range of premium cannabinoid-infused chocolates, Organigram is planning to launch a variety of dried powder formulation beverage products in early 2020 in Canada. A key anticipated feature of the products to be developed by Organigram is the initial onset of the effects of the cannabinoids within 10-15 minutes. To determine the onset of effects, the cannabinoid particles have been studied at a size of 20 nanometers. Organigram, subject to the receipt of any required approvals, plans to conduct further testing to confirm the onset of action and duration of effect. At the same time, the company is also actively seeking a strategic partner with experience in beverage product development to take advantage of the liquid formulation it has developed.
