Dispensary operator and cannabinoid product developer Trulieve this week launched a drink powder called TruTonic in its Florida dispensaries. TruTonic is made with the same process Trulieve uses forits TruPowder line of “nano-encapsulated,” flavored cannabinoid powder products.
TruTonic combines tropical flavors, fast-acting relief, and mild carbonation in a pre-dosed 5mg package, Trulieve said in a statement.
“At Trulieve, we’re dedicated to meeting and exceeding patients’ needs at every end of the cannabis experience spectrum. TruTonic delivers the reliable and rapid-onset experience many patients are looking for with a fat-free, sugar-free and low-calorie edible,” Trulieve chief marketing officer Valda Coryat said.
TruTonic offers a “fast-acting, long-lasting” alternative to smoking or vaporizing cannabis, the company said. Users can add the powder to water to dissolve it and create a fizzing, seltzer-like beverage. The nano-based formulation allows patients to feel the medication’s effects quickly while the discreet packaging and lower dose ensures patients can find relief any time of day.
Trulieve’s TruNano encapsulation process employs “sonication” technology, a method using sound waves to “achieve incredibly small nano-sized cannabinoids, which are then encapsulated,” according to the company.
This process “allows for water solubility, increased bioavailability, and a faster onset than a traditional, distillate-based edible medication,” Trulieve said. The company said its non-strain-specific powder “packs a powerful punch” for patients seeking “flavorful, discreet, and fast relief, such as those suffering from chronic pain or muscle spasms.”Advertisement
TruTonic is now available in Trulieve dispensaries across Florida in Black Cherry and Florida Orange flavors. Each unit will contain 10 pre-packaged 5mg THC doses.
