Containing high-quality, full-spectrum distillate extracted from select outdoor cultivators, Green Bee’s products have proven to be effective and popular in California, as well as highly prized, winning the 2021 Weedcon Cup, the 2020 Think Dirty Clean Beauty Awards, and in April 2021, Green Bee Botanicals Renewing Serum won first place at the 17th annual Emerald Cup Awards. The Emerald Cup Awards is considered to be the most important and influential cannabis contest in the world, with Rolling Stone naming it “The Academy Awards of the cannabis industry”.
Green Bee Botanicals products are currently sold in over 55 cannabis dispensaries across the state of California and is available online for home delivery through recognized delivery services across the state.
The Chairman and CEO of Ayurcann Mr. Igal Sudman stated: “This new partnership presents a great opportunity to bring a well-recognized and trusted brand to the Canadian market, and we are proud to announce another remarkable growth opportunity for Ayurcann.” Mr. Sudman further commented: “There is currently a lack of cannabis topicals that speaks to the needs of female consumers, and I cannot think of a product line that does this better than Green Bee Botanicals. Their award-winning formulations paired with Ayurcann’s high-quality extraction and efficient manufacturing create a flawless combination.”
Bridget May, Green Bee Botanical’s founder and in-house formulator stated: “Green Bee Botanicals is really a unique brand in the space because our products are designed for women’s facial skincare and there is virtually no one else is doing in the regulated cannabis space today. Ms. May continued: “With our unique products and brand messaging, Green Bee is able to bring new customers to cannabis products who wouldn’t otherwise be entering these retail spaces. Some California retailers we work with have teased that Green Bee is a ‘gateway brand’ that attracts clients who come in for our cosmetics and massage oil but who then discover other cannabis wellness products that are great for sleep, anxiety, pain relief and all the other great things cannabis is good for.”
“While women still make up the majority of our customers, men went from 10% of our customer base in 2019 to 25% in 2020 and now close to one-third in 2021 so far,” explained Green Bee Botanicals’ co-founder, Kim Howard. “Not only are men’s grooming and skincare the fastest-growing segments in the global beauty industry, but men still make up over 60% of cannabis customers overall, according to Headset. They’re buying Green Bee products as gifts and increasingly for themselves.”
