VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA/ April 4, 2019, IONIC Brands Corp., formerly Zara Resources Inc. (CSE: IONC) is pleased to announce that the Company is advancing into the cannabis-infused beverage market with two highly sought-after coffee patents.
IONIC BRANDS is entering into the infused beverage market with secured patents in the single-serve coffee and beverage pod market. CEO John Gorst states “single–cup coffee is a +$4.5 billion market and the National Coffee Association has estimated more than 40% of Americans own a single-cup coffee maker. Securing these patents is a great foundation for IONIC BRANDS to enter into the cannabis-infused beverage industry and is complementary to our current premium luxury Cannabinoid products. We also see substantial development potential of new revenue streams through licensing infused coffee and tea brand partnerships.”
As recently announced on April 2, 2019, the patents position IONIC BRANDS to exclusively benefit from patented technology and provide strategic intellectual assets in the cannabis-infused beverage market, which is anticipated to keep pace or exceed other edible markets. The patents (62/037,827 & 15/837,623) are among the first cannabis patents in US history. These exclusive patents are for brewing cannabis infused coffee, tea and cocoa from CannaCafe which are granted in the US only. Cowen and Company recently released a report in which it pinpoints Starbucks as the likely first major chain that will market products featuring cannabinoids (CBD). Arcview Market Research indicates that “the consumer appeal is propelling concentrates toward an estimated $8 billion in retail sales by 2022, outpacing growth in traditional flower sales.”
The original method patent was filed in August 2014 and issued on December of 2017. Since then Imbue LLC, CannaCafe’s parent company, has been granted approval for two additional utility patents, one for cannabis coffee, and the other for cannabis tea. The applications cover all commercial based extraction methods including but not limited to CO2, ethanol, and heat. Their ISO certified product is tasteless, 100% water soluble, and includes known cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. Chris Bhairam of CannaCafe commented, “having worked with dozens of very successful cannabis companies in the past, we are extremely pleased to close a deal with IONIC BRANDS. They have perfected their craft, and strategically identified new markets for targeted growth. I look forward to seeing them scale and cementing themselves at the top of the industry as a trusted manufacturer of premium quality cannabis products.”
