Lehua Brands Transforms CA State Fair Award-Winning Cannabis Strains into Delicious Beverages and Slushies (THC-Free) for CA Cannabis Exhibit

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via CannabisNewsWire — The CA State Fair Cannabis Awards and Lehua Brands, the official beverage of the Awards, proudly present special edition TerpTonic beverages in collaboration with four of California’s most acclaimed cannabis cultivators. These special edition TerpTonic beverages and slushies will be available for purchase at the Lehua Brands booth (#13) within the CA Cannabis Exhibit at the CA State Fair in Expo Center Building One. Quantities may be limited.

The cultivators and their award-winning strains include two Golden Bear “Best of California” winners, Esensia Gardens (Buddha’s Hand) and Greenshock Farms (Passion Orange Guava), and two Gold Medal winners, Booney Acres (Gelonade) and Emerald Spirit Botanicals (Pink Boost Goddess).

“The CA State Fair Cannabis Awards is delighted to offer adult fairgoers the opportunity to experience these exceptional flower strains in a truly novel format,” said Cultivar Brands CEO James Leitz. “Lehua Brand’s beverages and slushies deliver the unique flavors and aromas of the plant, with enhanced CBD, but no THC. Lehua’s TerpTonics offer an ideal means to educate the consumer by experiencing the natural herbal complexity of the cannabis plant.”

TerpTonics are formulated with no artificial flavors or sweeteners and only four essential ingredients: cured resin extract derived from the freshest cannabis flower, Cirona Lab’s specialty water-soluble emulsions, pure mineral water and terpene-infused CO₂ gas.

  • Cured resin extract, TerpTonics’ core ingredient, is extracted using Lehua’s patented PhenoTech CO2 extraction technology, from single-source, single-strain premium cannabis flower grown by these award-winning cultivators.
  • PhenoTech’s extraction process substantially preserves the chemical composition (aka the “chemovar”) that is native to each flower; everything unique to each strain is preserved in Lehua’s extract and each strain-specific TerpTonic.

“Lehua’s technology, knowledge and expertise, built over more than a decade of experimentation and innovation, ensure that the consumer tastes the plant, not the process,” said Jon Fitzgerald, CEO, Lehua Brands. “Our mission is to create products that push the boundaries of traditional consumer experience. True to this mission, Lehua uses science to preserve nature.”

All Lehua beverages and slushies served within the CA Cannabis Exhibit were manufactured in accordance with the rules and regulations of the California Department of Cannabis Control and satisfy the state’s requirement that hemp-based products have less than 0.3% THC by weight.
