The CSPA Group Inc. has been test marketing the core product in selected retail stores in California and the initial results have been very positive. The new product line Rêveur (the French word for Dreamer) will focus on the higher upscale luxury market using only fresh frozen organically grown cannabis strains processed at minus 50 degrees Celsius preserving all the natural terpenes and flavonoids. The Company has produced 15,000 grams of Rêveur Live Resin products in February. The Rêveur product launch will begin March 15 2018, with deliveries to strategically targeted retailers throughout California.
The product launch has been affected by the most recent testing requirements in California, which have created time delays in all accredited laboratories for the cannabis required testing. The new testing requirements are for concentrations of THC, THCA, CBD, CBDA CBN, CBG cannabinoids, twenty-two Terpenes, twenty residual solvents, herbicides and pesticides. The current timeline on a full spectrum laboratory result from a third-party accredited laboratory is running 10 to 15 business days. Brad Eckenweiler, CEO of LDS, stated, “In our manufacturing process we are now running four full spectrum testing protocols at four intervals in the process. First test prior to processing, second test on first pass extraction or crude product, third test upon distillation, and fourth test on the final product. We are confident that these protocols will benefit our customers and the industry.” These new testing requirements have added additional time to production and additional cost, full spectrum test cost are running between $650 to $850 per laboratory sample. The results are critical at each level of testing to allow the material to continue in the manufacturing process, because as the material becomes more concentrated the results become more finite in ppm (parts per million), which may effect the suitability of the final product for the market place. The Company is looking forward to the larger market distribution of the Rêveur product line. The CannastripsTMproduct line has also been test marketing flavours for final formulation this month and based on those results the new formulation decisions will be announced and the much anticipated launch will be scheduled.
