The Valens Company Inc (CVE:VLNS) (OTCQX:VLNCF), a global leader in the end-to-end development and manufacturing of innovative, cannabinoid-based products, announced Tuesday the launch of a new higher potency cannabis-infused beverage Summit 10, under a white label agreement with A1 Cannabis Company.
Summit 10, a lemonade iced tea containing 10 milligrams (mg) of THC, is the third addition to Valens’ and A1's line of cannabis-infused beverages, according to a statement.
Available in a 355 milliliter (ml) bottle, Summit 10 differentiates from the previously released 2.5mg THC-infused Summit beverage, with a flavour profile of citrus and black tea and a higher potency level, Valens said.

Summit 10 was developed using SōRSE by Valens emulsion technology and is designed for consumers seeking a higher dosage product with faster-observed onset times and reduced offset times, housed in a resealable bottle for convenient and controlled consumption.
Earlier this year, Valens introduced its first line of cannabis-infused beverages in partnership with A1 Cannabis -- Basecamp, a CBD-forward iced tea, and Summit, a THC-forward citrus-flavoured water. Both have quickly gained popularity in the Canadian cannabis-infused beverage market, receiving acclaim for their differentiated taste and customizable dosing from the industry and consumers alike.
"As an anticipated addition to A1's cannabis-infused beverage line, we bring Summit 10 to the Canadian market, a reimagined THC-forward formulation with more potency and differentiated taste, but with the same quality consumers have come to favour in Summit," said Valens CEO Tyler Robson.
"As the Canadian cannabis-infused beverage market matures, it is our commitment to continue to innovate and differentiate for our partners using SōRSE by Valens, but also reinvent trusted products that offer customizable experiences in various potency levels and taste profiles to meet a wide range of consumer preferences. We are thrilled to launch Summit 10 as part of our continued collaboration with A1 Cannabis to introduce new products and increase our collective market share in the rapidly growing beverage segment in Canada."
Valens said Summit 10 is expected to first launch in mid-October in Alberta online and at select retailers, with British Columbia and Ontario to follow shortly after. Valens and A1 Cannabis, which is a subsidiary of Iconic Brewing, also expect to release a zero sugar Summit 10 beverage this fall.
