The cannabis concentrates market has been exploding in recent years due to the increased popularity of dabs and vapes. Now a North American cannabis oil, edible and concentrates producer just announced they’re releasing a line of dab sticks made by the same company that manufactures two of the three biggest gaming consoles on the planet. Game on, dabheads, because the manufacturer of Playstation and Nintendo will be making a dab stick.
Who better to manufacture a dab stick than the same people who make Playstation and Nintendo consoles?
Nutritional High has officially gone into business with KMG International, an oil company, and manufacturer based out of Hong-Kong. According to a press release Nutritional High put out this morning, KMG will be designing and producing the dab sticks. They’re in the middle of patenting their designs.
KMG’s work in the video game and computer console industries gives it the manufacturing know-how and precision to make something as intricate as a dab stick. Additionally, their international reach—they’re currently in 15 countries and are valued in the billions—give them the resources to make a lot of product. Plus, KMG has experience in similar industries: They’ve been producing e-cigarettes since 2010, and have manufactured vape cartridges as well.
It looks like marijuana and video games are a match made in heaven on the production side, too. In the meantime, you can buy Nutritional High’s concentrates, edibles and oils sold in Colorado for the time being.
TORONTO, June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nutritional High International Inc. (the “Company” or “Nutritional High”) (CSE:EAT) (OTCQB:SPLIF) (FRANKFURT:2NU) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with Hong Kong-based KMG International Ltd. (“KMG”) whereby KMG will provide design and manufacturing services to the Company for its proprietary extract delivery device (“Dab Stick”). KMG has significant experience in consumer product design and production, with strategic extensive relationships across Asia.
The Dab Stick is a portable device that will allow users to “dab” cannabis concentrates wherever they choose. Dabbing refers to the flash vaporization of cannabis concentrates through exposure to an ultra-hot surface. Cannabis concentrates including oils, waxes, shatter and others are one of the fastest growing segments of the recreational cannabis markets in the United States. According to BDS Analytics, concentrates saw the most growth in dollar sales among product segments between 2014-2017, and this is expected to persist as users move away from flower. The Company filed patent applications for the Dab Stick in the United States and Canada on October 30th, 2017 and anticipates filing a similar application in China in the near future.
KMG has been active in Asia for over 57 years as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and has worked under license for Sony PlayStation, Nintendo, Logitech and others, in projects that require precise tooling and efficient manufacturing. KMG is a preferred vendor to major retailers in Europe and North America, and in 2010 KMG entered into the electronic cigarette and cartridge industry, developing significant expertise in producing value-added products in these market segments.
Jim Frazier, CEO of Nutritional High, commented, “We are pleased to share this development and look forward to developing our relationship with KMG going forward. As a company, we seek to provide value-added products to the marketplace and we believe with the Dab Stick can be a significant conduit to this.”
We look forward to giving all our money to one company from now on.
