After 25 years of creating signature craft soda flavors known for featuring fan-submitted photo labels on every bottle, Jones Soda Co. is entering a whole new category with the new Mary Jones brand of cannabis-infused sodas which made their U.S debut in the Golden State in June.
Four Flavors of Liquid Cannabis Goodness
Mary Jones 10 mg cannabis-infused sodas are available in Jones’ fan-favorite Root Beer, Berry Lemonade, Green Apple, and Orange & Cream flavors. Every flavor tastes like the Jones Soda original, thanks to Jones flavor scientists who have spent more than two decades in the taste trenches and have now adapted the iconic Jones recipes to accommodate the addition of cannabis ingredients. These delicious sodas are sold in single-serving 12 oz glass bottles with a four-pack carrier, making them perfect to bring to a party or share with friends.
“Jones Soda is a legendary brand built from bold flavors and doing bold things,” Bohb Blair, Chief Brand Officer, Mary Jones Cannabis Co. and CMO, Jones Soda Co, said in a press release. “Whether you are a canna-newbie or a cannaseur, our sodas are the most exciting flavors in cannabis today, and our product roadmap will keep our fans delighted by what is to come.”
Maintaining the Passion
The new Mary Jones products also continue Jones Soda’s tradition of using photographs submitted by consumers on their bottle labels and printing quotes from fans under the bottle caps. These traditions of getting fans involved with the brand through self-expression, along with unique flavors like FuFu Berry and partnerships with partners from UFC champion Julianna Pena to Sub Pop Records, have built a community of passionate fans that has continued to grow.
Distribution Plans Beyond California
In California, Mary Jones has partnered with Kiva Sales and Service (KSS), distribution and sales; Tinley Beverage Company, cannabis beverage manufacturing; and SōRSE Technology, emulsion and formulation. Mary Jones sodas are available at California dispensaries including Sweet Flower locations around Los Angeles, Green Goddess in Venice Beach, and Embarc in northern California.
Other Mary Jones products scheduled for launch in California later this year include a 100mg cannabis-infused soda packaged in a 16 oz, 10-serving can; a 1000mg syrup cannabis tincture designed for mixing with other drinks, using as a food topping or sipping; carbonated candy 2.5mg tablets for flavorful microdoses on the go; and 5mg cannabis-infused gummies shaped like miniature Jones soda bottles with a fun mini-four-pack carrier for a build-it-yourself downloadable DIY project. Plans are underway for additional products as well as expansion into other legal adult-use states.
