The CBD-infused food and beverage markets are set to become big business — expected to reach over $5 billion by 2026. Companies of all sizes, including many already existing and established companies, are entering the market with CDB food products, intended for mass distribution.
On July 19, 2019, Koios began production of several test batches of its Fit SodaTM product with crystallized CBD supplied by Keef Brands. Upon completion of this production, the company will be distributing the products from the test batch to select existing clients for trial purposes.
Additionally, Koios has consumer trials planned with individuals in its local community. Feedback derived from these trials will be utilized to further develop the proposed CBD beverage and prepare it for commercial production and distribution under the Fit SodaTM banner. The water-soluble CBD crystals supplied through Keef Brands have, according to Koios, shown consistent potency and efficacy results in Keef’s internal evaluation efforts of numerous water-soluble CBD solutions over the past year.
Koios is also the sole owner of Cannavated Beverage Corp., a subsidiary that develops beverage products and formulas for the growing CBD market.
