In the partnership, OBE supplies the cannabinoids, including full spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD as well as minor and rare cannabinoids CBG, CBN, CBC, THCV, and CBDV, and Buoyant Brands manufactures the products at its cGMP-certified Ohio facility. Product lines include single-serve and full-size functional chocolates, as well as artisanal gummies, combining natural ingredients with cannabinoids, available in a variety of strengths and flavors.
Going forward, OBE and Buoyant Brands will continue to develop new edibles with functional benefits, including a 'Get Well' special edition, 'The Feel Good Box', holiday gift box sets and a Valentine's Day special edition.
"The Buoyant Brands products are a welcome addition to our industry-leading product portfolio and a perfect fit for the clients we serve" says Nicole Brown, OBE chief commercial officer. "OBE has a proven track record of partnering with innovative companies to offer the highest quality products to our expanding global customer base. We are thrilled to take product innovation in the cannabinoid category to the next level, making it more accessible and simply appealing."
The new offerings with Buoyant Brands follow several successful OBE collaborations in 2020, including its HydroBond CBD water-soluble collection in partnership with Prinova, its solid oral dose tablet collection in partnership with Volunteer Botanicals, and Easysnap, the only one-hand opening and dispensing portion pack for liquid and semi-liquid products.
"We've always strived to make effective, truly functional products that surprise, delight and improve the lives of consumers," says David S. Samuels, president and CEO of Buoyant Brands. "We chose Open Book Extracts because of their high-quality cannabinoid ingredients, their extensive distribution network, and because we share many of the same values as a business — a commitment to the highest standards in sales and customer service, product quality, and professionalism."
