PORTLAND, Oregon, Oct. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PRESS RELEASE — The Arizona cannabis market is about to get a little sweeter! Grön, the women-led producer of delicious, handcrafted cannabis-infused edibles, today announced the launch of Pips – candy-coated chocolate pieces infused with full-spectrum cannabis extract – to the Arizona cannabis market. The beautifully delicious Pips are made with Fair Trade Certified chocolate, high-quality cannabis, and are available in four distinct flavors. The initial launch of Pips will be exclusive to Verano-owned and operated Zen Leaf dispensaries and The Flower Shop, a woman-led dispensary brand, with additional retailers coming online soon.

Pips are bite-sized chocolate pieces covered in a colorful, crunchy candy coating all around a crispy center – creating an irresistible snack-worthy edible. Infused with 5mg THC per Pip and available in a variety of cannabinoid ratios with 20 Pips per bag totaling 100mg THC, the versatile edibles can serve as a microdose edible or as an infused alternative to your favorite candy.

“Pips represent more than just a line of edibles, they showcase our commitment to innovation with truly unique forms and flavors. Our team is thrilled to launch Pips, as it supports our mission to bring purpose-driven cannabinoid ratios to the Arizona community,” said Christine Smith, founder and CEO of Grön. “We’d love to thank our partners at Verano for their continued support of our expansion efforts in Arizona. As a woman-led brand, we’re excited to partner with The Flower Shop, a woman-led cannabis dispensary, and continue to amplify the voices of strong women within our industry.”

Grön initially launched in the Arizona cannabis market in late 2021 with their Sugar-Coated Pearls, and has since become one of the leading edibles brands in the state. The launch of Pips completes Grön’s selection of edibles in Arizona, which includes their best-selling Sugar-Coated Pearls, MEGA Pearls, and Fair Trade chocolate.
