The roll-out, which starts with the distribution of 1 million gummies, is part of a distribution deal struck in February with Infinity One LLC, which has plans to sell the hemp candies via supermarket chains, pharmacies and convenience stores.

"The Canna Candys brand, using Hemp Oil extract, will establish a presence for our products in multiple retail locations, a presence that we will build upon to establish consumer recognition and trust in multiple markets to pave the way for additional product rollouts in the near future," said Pau Chu, CEO of Weekend Unlimited, in a statement.
