Goodness Growth Holdings, Inc. has added cannabis-infused gummies to its Vireo brand in Minnesota, in accordance with the state’s new regulations allowing certified medical cannabis patients to purchase edibles.
"Minnesota's medical cannabis program allows for people with a variety of different medical diagnoses to seek relief using medical cannabis," said Kyle Kingsley, M.D., Goodness Growth chairman and CEO. "The more options we are able to offer our patients, the better we are able to meet their different medical needs. And patients can rest assured that our gummies, like all of our products, are tested by licensed, independent quality assurance laboratories to ensure they meet strict standards for purity, potency and quality."
At launch, the gummies are available in 10 mg THC formulations and in Key Lime, Concord Grape, Hawaiian Pineapple and Oxnard Strawberry flavors. An additional formulation, with equal amounts of THC and CBD in an Alfonso Mango flavor, is expected to follow. Vireo gummies are available in all eight of the company's Green Goods dispensaries in Minnesota.
The launch of Vireo gummies in Minnesota comes after the launch of gummies and chews under the HiColor brand in Maryland in late 2021, where it has since expanded to include seasonal flavors and new formulations. The HiColor brand also expanded to the New York market in June.
