VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RavenQuest BioMed Inc. (CSE: RQB OTCQB: RVVQF Frankfurt: 1IT) (the “Company” or “RavenQuest”), one of Canada’s most innovative cannabis producers, is pleased to announce it has signed a joint venture agreement with the Not-So-Gentle Tea Company (“NSGT”) to develop, market and sell teas and similar products infused with THC and CBD in Canada.
“We are very excited to be working with the Not-So-Gentle Tea Company,” stated George Robinson, CEO of RavenQuest. “Like RavenQuest, NSGT has chosen a focused approach with a select number of high-impact products. NSGT brings an established brand with visually stunning marketing and a focused target market which is synergistic with RavenQuest’s audience. RavenQuest and Not-So-Gentle Tea Company will introduce a truly unique brand of teas and specialty beverages for discerning consumers who know what they want.”
“RavenQuest’s commitment to quality will be a fantastic fit with NSGT’s similar approach to the specialty beverage market. As Canada’s legalization of edibles and beverages draws near, specialized tea is a great initial foray into the beverage segment because many recreational stores have limited space for bottled inventory. Our teas will provide a perfect solution for consumers wishing to access cannabis infused drinks in a discreet, accessible fashion which can be stocked easily by any store, small or large,” Robinson continued.
About the Not-So-Gentle Tea Company
The Not-So-Gentle Tea Company was founded in 2017 for a unique tribe of people with complex palates who love strong, bold teas and know what they want. NSGT teas appeal to those who love espresso, rich, dark blends of coffee, full-bodied red wines, strong cheeses and strong-flavoured beer. Not-So-Gentle Tea Company has three powerful tea blends; one black, one green and one herbal.
Ryan McLellan, CEO of NSGT, commented on the JV, stating, “Not-So-Gentle Tea enters the cannabis space with a focused approach and the right partner. We are thrilled to enter this partnership with RavenQuest BioMed, a likeminded company who believes in delivering high quality, artisan-style products to discerning consumers. George has been a delight to work with and we can’t wait to share our unique THC and CBD-infused teas with all of Canada.”
