NightFood (NGTF) Announces Completed California Production of Half-Baked™ THC-Infused Cookies, Sights Set on Additional States
TARRYTOWN, NY, May 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), a brand development company pioneering the projected billion dollar nighttime nutrition category, and developing unique properties and products in the marijuana/cannabis/CBD related snack space, today announced that the first production run of Half-Baked™ branded products has been successfully completed under license in the State of California.
The Half-Baked brand THC-infused cookies each contain 10mg of THC and will retail for approximately $5. As originally announced on April 20, 2018, the product is on track to be available at retail before the end of May.
“This is the birth of a leading national edibles brand in the marijuana space. That’s how we view this initial production run and pilot launch,” commented CEO Sean Folkson. “As more states continue to follow suit and pass marijuana legislation, we see an increase in the value of the opportunity and in the value of the Half-Baked intellectual property.”
The Company is currently engaged in talks with additional prospective Half-Baked licensees in both Colorado and Washington State. Management believes that licensing the trademark to qualified partners in certain specific verticals and geographic locations is the quickest and most impactful way to achieve widespread distribution of Half-Baked products.
“Savvy entrepreneurs understand the critical role powerful branding plays in the land-grab stages of a fast-growing consumer category,” continued Folkson. “In our talks with prospective partners, the value of this brand name is undisputed. We've already received comments from the USPTO regarding our registration, and there remains little doubt that the trademark will be granted in relatively short order.”
Plans are for the Half-Baked brand to include regular snacks that would be legal and immediately eligible for national distribution, as they’d contain no THC or cannabis in any form, in addition to lines of cannabis-containing snacks.
Subsequent to filing the Half-Baked trademark application in January, the Company acquired HalfBaked.com. In the coming months, the Company intends to launch the HalfBaked.com website to support the launch and development of this leading consumer cannabis brand.
An investor conference call is being coordinated for the week of May 28, 2018, during which the Company will provide updates on revenues, new product development, and other recent activities. An announcement will be made prior to the call providing investors all details necessary to attend the call and submit questions for management.
