Tinley Beverage Company Inc (CNSX:TNY) President on Sativa-Type Infused Beverage Profiles
Tinley Beverage Company Inc (CNSX:TNY) (OTCMKTS:TNYBF) (FRA:45T) President Rick Gillis provides an update on the company’s expansion and an overview of Tinley’s beverage profiles. Tinley has completed construction on its bottling facility in Coachella, California. Gillis emphasizes the importance of taste in the beverage market and describes the ways in which infused beverages differ from edibles. Tinley uses nanoemulsion technology that allows for quick onset and duration of approximately 2 hours. Gillis reveals that most of Tinley’s beverages will have an uplifting, sativa-type effect but the company will also offer mellower beverages, with indica-type results.
Narrator: The Tinley Beverage Company is a Canadian-based company with operations in the United States. The company makes liquor-inspired, alcohol-free cannabis infused beverages for use in California. It also manufactures the Hemplify product line, which is available in retail locations in California as well as online in the US.
Tinley intends to leverage consumer and operational learnings in California to launch operations in Canada and Nevada, followed by other territories.
The Tinley Beverage Company trades on the CSE under the ticker symbol TNY.
Howard Glassman: Sorry. [laughter] I apologize, Sir. I have an 80-year-old, horny farting man next to me. I’m trying to be a professional. I’m sorry, Rick.
Ed Milewski: Where are you, Ricky?
Howard Glassman: Rick, we’re talking to Rick in California, are we not?
Rick Gillis: Yes, you are. We’re…we’re having a good time.
Howard Glassman: You know, well, we’re trying to have a good time. You know, why not? Ed and I are not going to live forever. Let’s talk about some news. You completed your planned expansion of the bottling facility in the Coachella Valley to produce your great-tasting cannabis-infused beverages. Do you mind if I ask you a question, before we get to the technical stuff?
Rick Gillis: Absolutely.
Howard Glassman: Can we just talk a bit about – because in Canada, we have not yet had the cannabis-infused beverage, although I know other companies are starting to think about it. What does it taste like, what is the effect like, and is it like an edible, and how is it different from an edible?
Rick Gillis: Well, that’s a great question. I mean, edibles are – they’re fast growing, for sure, but there’s a little bit of consumer confusion. A lot of times folks will have a bite of a brownie or a gummy, and they don’t feel anything, and there’s a little bit of consumer education that’s necessary, because edibles have to go through your digestive tract and it takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to actually start feeling the onset of an edible.
Now, you compare that to beverage: beverage acts just like alcohol. It’s digested right through the liver and goes right to your bloodstream. A quicker onset. That’s the fundamental difference between an edible and a THC-infused beverage.
Howard Glassman: So it’s – when you ingest it with a beverage, it’s more predictable, perhaps, and quicker?
Rick Gillis: That’s the goal. And that’s exactly what we have done with our new science and technology that we’ve been vetting over the last, call it, two months – 13 different science companies ranking from nano-emulsification to no sugar, we have nailed the recipe for Tinley Beverages where not only do we deliver on a great-tasting product – you have to try our margarita-like product line, or our Moscow Mule product, which is made by Coors. But they deliver on two very important fundamentals for a great beverage: one is, it tastes really good, and we have a recipe that delivers on that. We’re using some real great flavours and science that comes out of the beverage alcohol space, and we use a lot of the same ingredients that are used to make the alcoholic drinks that most people are quite familiar with.
So we’ve got a great-tasting product, and through the nano-emulsification technology, we’re getting an onset, initially you feel it in about five minutes; the full effect in that 15 to 20 minute time frame, with a duration that lasts close to two hours for the initial one.
Howard Glassman: And again, not having seen a bottle of your great-tasting Tinley’s cannabis-infused beverages, all of that – what I’m trying to get to is, all of those effects obviously are on the bottle. Can you – are some bottles have more effect, less effect? You know what I’m saying – is there a similar analogy to, a glass of wine has 14 percent alcohol, while a shot of vodka is 40 percent?
Rick Gillis: Well, obviously the more THC you consume, the stronger the effect. But it’s important to distinguish, in our portfolio, most of our drinks are going to be geared toward a more uplifting sativa effect. So you’re going to have two choices when you add your terpenes: one’s going to add a sativa for uplifting kind of giggly type effect, and then some drinks, you know, we launched products that are more like bourbon and cognac, probably going to have more of a chilling effect where you want to be more creative and relaxing. That’s going to use an indica-type terpene.
Howard Glassman: Okay.
Rick Gillis: But the idea is to really replace what people look for in a creation through a beverage alcohol; a similar experience can be derived through THC, and we look to exploit, more often than not, the sativa effect. We use a special blend of pineapple express, which are rare, and we do a custom blend working with a very, very well-respected terpene company, to have the special flavour proprietary to Tinley beverage company, we use in our drinks.
Howard Glassman: Well, I gotta tell you, Rick, as somebody that doesn’t drink alcohol, I can’t wait. I really can’t. I started reading about your company, and as I say, a few others that are in this space, and you know, it really is another part of this revolution that’s happened here in Canada and is eventually going to be happening all over America, and we certainly appreciate you taking some time with us today, okay?
Rick Gillis: No, it’s my pleasure. You basically took a page out of our founder’s mission. He likes the taste of alcohol, not the effect.
Howard Glassman: No, exactly. All the best to you, Sir, and take care. Hope to see you when you’re in Toronto sometime.
