The Clear products are now available in nine states with more on the way including Colorado, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Montana, Missouri, Michigan, Massachusetts, and Oklahoma.

The complete list of awards and categories is available on The Clear’s website. A few of the notable competitions and recognitions with nods to recently launched brands like TWAX and Endo include:

In late March, The Clear earned industry recognition in Rooster Magazine’s annual THC Classic, a cannabis competition in Colorado. The star of the show was The Clear cartridge in Lime Sorbet, a Sativa-influenced flavor from The Clear’s signature Elite line with first place in the Flavored Vape category.

TWAX, an infused pre-roll line that was launched by The Clear in 2021, with TWAX mini pre-rolls that launched in 2022, also received recognition. TWAX Blueberry, a premium distillate-infused pre-rolled joint with all-natural flavor innovated by The Clear, received second place in the Infused Pre-Roll category for the 10th annual THC Championship 2022.

The Clear’s Endo line, an enhanced live resin vape cartridge, was launched last April. Endo Blueberry, a unique craft concentrate with an all-natural sweet blueberry dessert flavor, won third place in the Hydrocarbon Vape category in the Rooster 710 Showdown 2022.

The Clear placed again in the Las Vegas Cannabis Awards this year, earning second place in the Disposable THC Dominant Vape category for their signature Elite Lobster Butter oil – a nod to a brand staple since inception.

The Clear was also awarded in the High Times Cannabis Cup: People’s Choice 2022 competitions in Michigan and Colorado. The Clear’s Elite Lime Sorbet cartridge took third place in the Distillate Vape Pen category in the Cannabis Cup Colorado and Elite Grapevine took third place in the Distillate Vape Pen category in the Cannabis Cup Michigan – wins judged by consumers in the states.

With new product categories in appealing new flavors such as The Clear’s Dripcees fast-acting vegan gummies that just launched in August, more industry recognition for superb current products and upcoming exciting new products is expected.

The Clear™ New Gummies Edible Line Launches in Missouri Market in Partnership with COCO Labs

The Clear Dripcees fast-acting gummies will be available in Missouri late-August

DENVER – August, 16, 2022 ­– Legacy national cannabis brand The Clear™ has partnered with COCO Labs – Missouri’s premier medicinal marijuana manufacturer to produce a new line of cannabis gummy edibles called Dripcees™ available in stores across the state in late August.

“COCO Labs is honored to be the first manufacturer of the Dripcees brand” says Craig Smith, Partner & CIO of COCO Labs. “We are proud to utilize our state-of-the-art facility in the development and expansion of The Clear and COCO’s product line. Dripcees are expertly crafted to keep the consumer in mind with health and wellness at the forefront. Customizable dosing and inclusion of minor cannabinoids give the consumer peace of mind for medicating and effects.”

From the company that brings you The Clear’s industry-leading vape and infused pre-roll products, Dripcees by The Clear are fast-acting, vegan gummies for the modern cannabis consumer. Dripcees Gummies are infused using premium distillate and enriched with specific ratios of cannabinoids designed to provide unique experiences.

Each piece is scored with lines to help consumers split it by hand into as many as four smaller pieces for microdoses. Dripcees are produced in the shape of The Clear’s iconic Drip-C logo and come in three delicious, all-natural flavors, with more great flavors to come. These current flavors include Dripcees Tropical Coconut ‘Enjoy’, THC only gummies, Peaches N’ Cream ‘Sleep’ gummies with THC, CBN and CBD, and Strawberry Watermelon ‘Recover’ gummies with THC and CBG.

Dripcees also use a special cannabinoid delivery system designed to improve how your body absorbs cannabinoids that makes them fast-acting – effects can be felt in as little as 15 minutes. This unique proprietary cannabinoid-delivery technology is Lipid In-vivo Transport (LIT) – one of The Clear’s fast-acting and bioavailability increasing infusions.

“Missouri is a rapidly developing market in the cannabis space” says Seth Wiggins, Chief Business Officer, Clear Cannabis Inc. (CCI). “A new gummy line from a national brand like The Clear will offer consumers a unique experience incorporating popular minor cannabinoids, a fast-acting delivery system and complemented by what we excel at – amazing flavors.”

Dripcees Gummies are expected to be available at retail stores the week of August 22nd statewide including in central Missouri, Kansas City and St. Louis, starting at COCO dispensaries.
