KELOWNA, British Columbia – The Valens Company Inc. (TSX: VLNS) (OTCQX: VLNCF) (the “Company” or “The Valens Company”), a global leader in the end-to-end development and manufacturing of innovative, cannabinoid-based products, announced the launch of vape cartridges under a custom manufacturing agreement with TREC Brands for its WINK brand premium product portfolio.
The 510 thread cartridges, WINK Onyx and WINK Chalice, are the first set of vape products to be introduced to WINK’s carefully curated collection of unique products. The cartridges contain high THC, custom formulations crafted using a broad-spectrum CO2 extraction process, offering consumers terpene-rich cannabis extract, free of carriers and additives. WINK Chalice is a Sativa-dominant blend with a smooth earthy and floral flavour profile with a hint of spice, while Indica-dominant WINK Onyx offers potent floral and citrus notes with an herbal undertone.
All WINK cartridges are compatible with a 510 thread vape battery and are made with a ceramic or electroplated mouthpiece, stainless steel frame, and glass casing designed to deliver maximum performance. Both are currently available at retailers and online in Alberta, and are expected to be available in Ontario in the coming weeks. TREC Brands will donate ten percent of profits from all sales of WINK products to community-based initiatives that put the people and planet first. Specifically, the WINK brand donates to organizations supporting social services and homelessness.
In addition to WINK, The Valens Company will also manufacture vape products for two other existing TREC brands, Thumbs Up Brand and Blissed, with the potential to later produce other innovative products in partnership with the company.
