DARIEN, Conn. — Tobacco and vaping product manufacturer E-Alternative Solutions (EAS) has debuted Forth Cannabidiol (CBD), a line of hemp-derived CBD tinctures.
The products are designed specifically for adult convenience-store consumers who make impulse purchases during their visits, the company said.
"We at EAS are thrilled to announce the addition of Forth CBD to our family of innovative, market-tested and compliant brands for the convenience-store retail channel," said Jacopo D'Alessandris, president and CEO of EAS. "Just like our best-in-class vapor products, Forth CBD offers adult consumers the highest-quality ingredients tested for quality and purity by third-party labs, and a variety of flavor, strength and format choices to meet their individual needs."
Forth CBD tinctures contain full-spectrum CBD, meaning they have the total extract of the cannabis flower, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and all other cannabinoids. The tinctures come in two formats: those with 300 milligrams of CBD, which come in Original Hemp, Strawberry Lemon and Cool mint flavors; and those with 600 milligrams of CBD, which come in Citrus Berry and Peppermint flavors.
"In addition to our expanding lineup of CBD and vapor products, EAS brings the tools to help retailers effectively merchandise and sell their goods and unmatched compliance expertise," said Jeff Brown, vice president of sales for EAS. "We work to drive shoppers through retailers' doors and help wholesalers and retailers better manage new business categories."
EAS also offers Leap Vapor, an e-cigarette brand with products made with nicotine salts. The vape comes in a variety of e-liquid flavors, such as Strawberry, Arctic Berry, Creamy Mint, Mango and Watermelon Kiwi, all of which are available in rechargeable and disposable models.
Based in Darien, Conn., EAS develops, markets and distributes vaping products and CBD oils. EAS is a sister company of tobacco manufacturer Swisher International, Jacksonville, Fla.
