In November 2020, we took D8 Seltzer to market as the first nationwide legal hemp-derived THC drink. After countless store owners and retailers telling us NO. We took to the streets to get public approval.
We asked people of all ages, (21+ of course) their thoughts and opinions about a legal THC drink. To our surprise, the conversations went really well! It seemed as though the public was ready for the change. Everyone was genuinely interested and wanted more information, a few people even asked about putting our product in their stores. But then this posed another issue…
For those of you who do not know, beverages are very heavy, and this poses a huge issue for distribution. Many of the large companies such as Coca-cola, Pepsi, Nestle, and Anheuser Busch, control a lot of the distribution routes and territories which makes beverage one of the most difficult industries to be in. How are we supposed to compete with billion-dollar companies?
After pitching to what seemed like every distributor in the United States and being rejected. We made the decision to focus on direct-to-customer and direct-to-store and this is what happened.
