ADCANN: Analyzing the Cannabis 2.0 Market in Canada: Beverages

Drinks powered by sorse tech

Through our partnership with The Valens Company and A1 Cannabis, our technology powered the first cannabis beverage to market in Canada!

“These products were developed using the SōRSE by Valens emulsion technology which transforms cannabis oil into water-soluble extracts while eliminating cannabis taste, colour, or smell. These beverages have a fast onset time, significantly reduce offset time, increased bioavailability of cannabinoids, and are stable enough to achieve more than a one-year shelf life.”

Check out the full overview of the current beverage market in Canada from ADCANN.

4/20, Powered by SōRSE – It’s About a Lifestyle, Your Lifestyle

sorse ops team celebrating 4/20

 For people who believe in the power of the cannabis plant, 4/20 is a day of celebration. Some people attend rallies to promote national legalization, some celebrate at concerts, and others simply gather with friends to share their ‘stash’.  While 4/20 looks a little different this year, for those who work in the industry, every day is 4/20 – including the employees at SōRSEAnd it’s busier than ever. 

Our team is comprised of people from all walks of life with different roles in the company – we are scientists, project managers, designers, product developers, regulatory experts, writers, and thought leaders. These are some reflections on 4/20 from members of our team #poweredbySōRSE. 


What Does 4/20 Mean to You? 

4/20 is not generally a special holiday in my book because CBD has become a regular part of my regimen, but it is a great time to reflect on how far the industry has come and where it’s headed. The more we understand about the plant, the more we realize that everyday can be 4/20. For me, 4/20 doesn’t symbolize a day to get highit’s about living a higher quality life. – Diana Eberlein, VP of Marketing 


4.20 sorse dogLifechanging at many levels. My wife and I were just reflecting how marijuana social norms have shifted so much during our lifetime. The Sixties was the time of “Turn on, tune in and drop out; the Seventies (my teen years) brought the war on drugsliterally vilifying all things marijuana. Fast forward to today, not only basically legal, marijuana is now considered a “vital” resource and medicine with dispensaries kept open and classified as “essential” services….Wow! What a long strange trip it has been! 4/20 is also Monte’s (our daughter’s dog) birthdayhe is turning two this year. – Scott Riefler, CSO 


4/20 is a time of celebration! To celebrate the legality of cannabis and to celebrate all the companies out there that are trying to make the word a better place though cannabinoid research. – Michelle Sundquist, Director of Product Development 


4/20 is a time to think about the past, present, and future of cannabis – with the hope that people will continue to embrace and accept all that the plant has to offer. – Dana Perkins, Corporate Communications Specialist 


The best excuse to use cannabis. – Jalen TimsMedical Applications Specialist 


How Has CBD Positively Impacted Your Life or Someone That You Know? 


A good friend I grew up with struggles with an eating disorder and substance abuse. Recently, she was diagnosed with epilepsy. The treatment program she is on the waitlist for will not admit her into the program unless she is seizure-free for 30 days. Since using CBD, she has not had a Grand Mal seizure. She is now eligible to be admitted into the treatment program! – Jalen Tims, Medical Applications Specialist 


One of my favorite stories is family friends who have autistic sons or daughters. CBD has helped with calming aggression and forming sentences with more structure and understanding. These parents have tried everything under the sun to help their children, and they are willing to try anything. CBD has been very helpful. – Emily Skrobecki, Process Engineering Manager 


One of my best friends has a 15year-old German Short-Haired Pointer, Ruby, who started having seizures last October – which was scary for everyone involved. There were some days where she was seizing multiple times. I suggested that my friend start giving Ruby CBD with her meals to see if it would help – and it did. Ruby’s last seizure was on 2/18 — she has been seizure-free for two months! – Dana Perkins, Corporate Communications Specialist
