Kiva Confections has released its Camino 'Proud' gummies for the fifth year in honor of Pride.
The product features reimagined packaging and a brand new Passionfruit Punch flavor with Limonene, Linalool, Beta-Caryophyllene, and Alpha-Pinene terpenes for a tailored, exhilarating effect.
Additionally, Kiva revealed its largest monetary contribution to date in the amount of $100,000. These funds will be allocated across four beneficiaries in support of the LGBTQ+ community, with an emphasis on championing the transgender, nonbinary, and gender-expansive people who are in most need of greater access to essential care. These organizations include:
- FOLX HRT Care Fund in partnership with the National Black Trans Advocacy Coalition (BTAC)
- The LA LGBT Center's Transgender Economic Empowerment Project (TEEP)
- The Transgender Law Center
"Cannabis has always been intrinsically intertwined with the LGBTQ+ community,'' said Kristi Palmer, co-founder of Kiva. "As a company that stands for inclusivity and acceptance, we are thrilled to partner with the FOLX HRT Care Fund and BTAC, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Transgender Law Center, and GLAAD this year. These organizations are making a profound impact at a pivotal moment in history, and we are honored to play even a small role in helping propel their missions forward."
Whereas previous year's Camino Proud packaging focused on the celebratory aspects of Pride and the LGBTQ+ community's legacy of marches, parades, and protests, this year Kiva has chosen to feature a Bay Area landmark, The Pink Triangle. Since 1996, this symbol has been erected during Pride weekend atop San Francisco's Twin Peaks. Nearly an acre in size, it can be seen for 20 miles. The Pink Triangle brings attention to the past persecution of those in the LGBTQ+ community and reminds us to ensure that it never happens again.
Originally pioneered in 2018 by Kiva's lead product developer to pay homage to her LGBTQ+ community, the Camino Proud gummy is dosed at 5 mg THC per piece, with a total of 100 mg THC per package. The Passionfruit Punch Camino will be available for a limited time at select California dispensaries and via Kiva Direct beginning May 20. The product retails for $20, while supplies last.
