Partnership with Tarukino fast-tracks Caliva into cannabis-infused beverage manufacturing

SAN JOSE – January 14, 2019 /AxisWire/ Caliva, The Most Trusted Brand in Cannabis, has partnered with the world’s leading nano-emulsion technology provider, Tarukino, to bring premium beverages to the California market.

Caliva is broadening its existing industry-leading product line of branded cannabis flower, pre-rolls and vaporizer cartridges to include tinctures and beverages powered by Tarukino’s technology.

“We are thrilled to expand into the ‘Good for You’ product category with a new beverage line launching next year,” says Dennis O’Malley, CEO of Caliva. “After extensive diligence, we are confident that Tarukino is the right nano-emulsion technology company to partner with. We are excited to bring the best beverages in the market to California consumers in 2019.”

Tarukino, a technology-driven cannabis company based in Seattle, produces the top selling cannabis-infused drink in Washington state, Happy Apple. Tarukino’s Sōrse™ technology solves common issues with beverage consistency and taste by encapsulating cannabinoids in a water-soluble form that is odorless, tasteless, and disperses completely in water.

Caliva has secured exclusive rights to utilize Tarukino’s Sōrse™ emulsion technology in California to launch its new line of great tasting, consistent, effective, and shelf-stable beverages.

“The cannabis beverage industry today consists of products that smell like cannabis, taste bad, and have an effect onset that takes longer than 20 minutes. Tarukino solves all of these issues,” says Howard Lee, CEO of Tarukino Inc. “When we looked for a partner in California we sought out the best and most trusted brand out there – and that was clearly Caliva.”

Caliva will be producing beverages from both their San Jose and Brisbane facilities, and is expected to launch the first beverages in its San Jose retail store in Q1 of 2019.
