Curaleaf, a leading international provider of consumer cannabis products, has announced the launch of Zero Proof, a new brand of THC drinkables in fast-acting, sessionable and easy-to-use formats. The brand’s inaugural product offering, Squeeze, is now available at all Curaleaf locations in Illinois and is expected to become available in Arizona in the coming months.
Zero Proof Squeeze follows Select’s popular THC-infused beverage enhancer, Select Squeeze, originally launched in March 2021. While similar in functionality and effect, Zero Proof Squeeze has been reformulated with natural sweetener to provide a significantly lighter taste and balanced flavor profile for enhanced mixability. The beverage complement offers a uniquely controllable and customizable experience with an easy-to-pour dispenser and compact design delivering 2.5mg THC per dose for discreet enjoyment on the go.
Utilizing nanotechnology, Zero Proof Squeeze provides a truer-to-flower experience with effects felt in as little as 15-30 minutes, significantly faster than traditional edibles. By turning cannabis oil into tiny water-soluble molecules, the THC compounds dissolve evenly into any beverage and are more rapidly and efficiently absorbed into the bloodstream. At launch, four delicious, low calorie and gluten-free flavors will be available including Dash of Cherry, Dash of Orange, Dash of Lime and Dash of Sweet.
“Zero Proof exemplifies our commitment to providing high-quality, consistent consumer products in familiar and approachable formats that model traditional consumer packaged goods,” said Matt Darin, CEO of Curaleaf. “Curaleaf has been on the forefront of creating sophisticated cannabis experiences which we believe will ultimately redefine the way people socialize. We’re proud to bring Zero Proof Squeeze to our patients and customers in Illinois first before expanding to additional markets.”
According a new Gallup poll, the rate of alcohol consumption in the U.S. continues to decline with 62% of adults under age 35 reporting they drink alcohol, down 10% from two decades ago. Zero Proof is the latest addition to Curaleaf’s brand portfolio that seeks to redefine how people socialize by delivering a fast-acting, sessionable alternative to alcohol.
