Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 28, 2021) - Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (CSE: EMH) (OTCQX: EMHTF) ("Emerald") announces that its partner, FlowerPod LLC, has completed product development related to a new form of cannabis consumption, a first-of-its-kind cannabis vaporizer puck, created a new brand called HUUETM, and established a partnership with Grenco Science, the leader in advanced cannabis vaporization technology, to provide a go-to-market strategy. As announced by Emerald in May, FlowerPod exclusively licensed the use of Emerald intellectual property relating to the cannabis puck concept for all US states, with an option to expand globally (excluding select medical markets including Canada) upon meeting certain milestones.

FlowerPod's intent with its innovative HUUETM plant-based vaporizer pucks is to fill a void in the market with an environmentally-friendly flower consumption format that is portable, user-friendly and provides a consistent dosage with every vaporization experience. HUUE™ bypasses the barriers to entry for new and goal-seeking cannabis users by providing a convenient (fast form factor; no grinding or mess), dose-controlled, and discreet delivery system. It simplifies the cannabis experience by creating five puck varieties catering to prominent social needs, including Productivity, Socialization, Anxiety, Pain and Sleep, with 3 SKUS available at launch - (Un)Wine, GSD, and ROFL.
Based on Emerald's initial prototype design and development collaboration with Emerald, FlowerPod designed its compact flower pucks for use with Grenco Science's G Pen Dash dry herb personal vaporizer. Compact and lightweight, the Dash features a glass-glazed stainless steel heating chamber combined with a clean air source and integrated air path for unsurpassed flavor from the HUUE™ experience. FlowerPod is device-agnostic and plans to launch its HUUE™ products with other vaporizer devices in the future.
"We believe this innovation in the dry herb vaping space is extremely overdue and that it will do for cannabis what pods did for the coffee industry, introducing incredible benefits of cannabis in an easy-to-use, clean convenient format," said FlowerPod Head of Communications & Lead Investor, David Salinas. "The mission with HUUE™ is to introduce an entirely new set of everyday cannabis consumers to the market by simplifying the cannabis vaporization experience. Our partnership with long-standing industry titan Grenco Science will be game-changing for accomplishing that."
"Grenco Science is excited to partner with this revolutionary brand and bring HUUE™ into our growing portfolio of partners. The HUUE™ pucks will forever change the way people use plant-based vaporizers. We look forward to helping grow HUUE™ into a leading global brand in the industry," said Chris Folkerts, CEO and founder of Grenco Science.
As part of the license agreement, Emerald provided FlowerPod with a repayable loan of US$350,000. Emerald received 19% equity ownership of FlowerPod and will receive IP license payments.
"It is gratifying to see the maturing development of this product concept from our original ideation, patenting and engineering through to FlowerPod's manufacturing, elegant branding, and strategic sales and marketing initiatives for HUUE™ that are now coming to fruition to soon launch this unique cannabis product line," said Riaz Bandali, President and CEO. "Emerald's focus on science-driven product innovation and intellectual property development provided the right foundation for this development, and we look forward to seeing the results of the HUUE™ product launch."
