Halo Labs Inc. (“Halo” or the “Company“) (NEO:HALO) is pleased to announce it has launched its edibles line in Oregon, with the introduction of three edible products including single piece chews, a gummy ten pack and a syrup based drink. The Company has commenced sales of the gummy ten packs under the Drops™ brand, with Hush single piece chews and Hush Lean Back Syrup scheduled for release in stores by mid-November. The launch of edibles is a natural extension given Halo’s expertise in manufacturing high quality cannabis extracts and oils and provides the Company with exposure to the fastest growing sector in the cannabis industry with a higher margin profile than the existing Halo product line.
Summary of Edibles Business Update
- Halo to manufacture and distribute Hush Single Piece Soft Chews, Hush 4 oz Lean Back Syrup, and Drops™ 10-piece Gummy packs
- The initial 6000 units of Drops™ 10-piece Gummy packs have been recently distributed
- Hush Single Piece Soft Chews and Hush 4 oz Lean Back Syrup are scheduled for a mid-November launch
- New products are being developed to match changing consumer demand in line with fast growing market conditions
Halo recently initiated their edibles launch, introducing products in Oregon where the Company has already established an approximate 20% share of the wholesale concentrates market. The Company is launching two different brands with three products, Hush Single Piece Soft Chews 50 mg THC (Hush Gummy), Hush 4 oz Lean Back Syrup 1000 mg, and Drops™ 10-Piece Gummy 50 mg THC. Given the growth the fast growth of the edible’s category and Halo extensive distribution in Oregon, management anticipates that edibles will provide a meaningful boost to the current Oregon revenues.
Concentrates are the fastest growing sector in the cannabis industry encapsulating the edibles market, rapidly outpacing the growth of flower. According to a new report by BDS Analytics, the trending shift toward consumables will continue over the next five years, with flower’s share of total spending dropping from 50% in 2017 to just 36% in 2022. Edibles is forecasted to grow from 12% to 14% in that time frame. This growing demand for edibles compliments the consumer benefits of longer shelf life, easy to use and monitor dosing, easy to travel with, and discrete consumption; along with the manufacturing benefits of being efficient to mass produce, ability to generate unique designs, existing support of confectionary industry, and higher profit margins. Developing a line of edible products will generate higher overall margins for Halo while requiring nearly no infrastructure changes, making the move into the edible cannabis category seamlessly.
“The introduction of edibles to the Halo product line creates a new stream of revenues and profits which we expect will result in impressive margins that reflect the shifting consumer demographics. Given our Company’s expertise in the extracts and concentrate industry, edibles are a natural extension of our established business,” said Kiran Sidhu, Halo’s Chief Executive Office.
