Tasty Buds has had an amazing response since their 2019 Dragons Den Episode on October 31st. With a $150,000 $CAD investment for 15% of the company from Manjit Minhas, Tasty Buds continues to position itself as a stand out brand that relates strongly to the cannabis industry.
“Since the episode, we have picked up more customers, retailers, and distributors and we are continuing to grow our brand recognition across Canada.,” says co-founder Scott Symons.
With the brand power and following we currently have, Tasty Buds is entertaining the opportunity to enter the medicated market. With interest from LP’s, cannabis brands and CPG companies, Tasty Buds is looking for the next steps to enter new markets as a 2.0 version of the brand.
“Our focus has been to create a confectionary brand that we will take into the global cannabis consumables market,” says Symons. “We are working towards growing the brand recognition internationally, as we have seen great response from the U.S. and other countries. We plan to enter these medicated markets with a line of products containing CBD/THC.”
Launched in October 2018, Tasty Buds were the hit stocking stuffer of the year in the cannabis space. They are now sold in over 420 retailers across Canada. Handcrafted in Vancouver, Tasty Buds are a novelty chocolate cluster that look exactly like cannabis buds.
They do not contain CBD or THC. This locally made confectionery company is well positioned for growth given today’s news about the legalization of cannabis edibles.
