OAKLAND, Calif.– Jones Soda Co. (OTCQB: JSDA) (CSE: JSDA), the original craft soda known for its unconventional flavors and user photo-submitted labels, announced an exclusive partnership with Kiva Sales and Service (KSS), the industry-leading sales and distribution platform offering dispensaries a complete suite of curated, best-in-class brands, to launch its new line of cannabis-infused beverages, Mary Jones, into the California market.
“We couldn’t be more excited to share Mary Jones with our fans, budtenders, and retailers throughout California,” said Bohb Blair, CMO, Jones Soda. “Partnering with KSS has allowed us to hit the ground running and ensure timely distribution and service to the top dispensary locations throughout the state.”
Mary Jones is the first cannabis product portfolio to leverage 25 years of a mass market-established equity across brand, beverage, flavors, and fans. The portfolio uniquely fills a gap that exists in the market between micro-dosed, health claim-driven brands and high-potency terpene flavor profile brands by offering both new and experienced users a welcome alternative for cannabis moments and social occasions.
“We are humbled to welcome the Mary Jones and the Jones Soda family to the Kiva Sales and Service portfolio. Mary Jones is a truly unique offering in the California cannabis space and brings what I believe to be the new leader in infused soda pop, ”commented KSS President Brooks Jorgensen. “We could not be more excited about the future of this brand.”
At launch, Mary Jones will feature a line of 10mg THC cannabis-infused sodas sold in single dose, 12-oz bottles, with a four-pack carrier ideal for social occasions and sharing. All products are available in Jones’ fan-favorite Root Beer, Berry Lemonade, Green Apple, and Orange & Cream flavors, with a rotating selection of seasonal and limited-edition flavors planned for future release. The Jones flavor science team designed each of these products to perfectly recreate Jones’ popular mainline soda flavors, delivering crave-worthy beverages.
Kiva Sales and Service has extensive experience in elevating groundbreaking products, while offering a visionary approach to connect with new, untapped cannabis consumers. This new partnership will accelerate the expansion of Mary Jones’ products throughout California through strategic deployment of distribution resources, and an integrated sales approach between Mary Jones and KSS sales teams.
