HUUE, a Stamford-based cannabis company, will be launching a new cannabis vape product. The product uses fresh-pressed dry cannabis leaves for vaporizing. Experts say that cannabis is way healthier than consuming substances via combustion.
HUUE lead investor, David Salinas, is planning a rapid expansion among legal cannabis states, including Connecticut. He believes that the company’s unique innovation technology could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
He said they are also open to partnering with established cannabis companies to offer their products in the form of patented pucks. However, in a related story, the recently enacted vape mail restriction in the United States is expected to severely impact the cannabis business, as it covers cannabis vape items.
The vape mail ban, or the “S1253: Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act,” prohibits the shipment of vaping products by the US Postal Service, including UPS, FedEx, or DHL, and requires delivery services to check IDs and obtain the signature of adults at points of delivery.
Business insiders have pointed out that the limits imposed by this bill are similar to those already in place in the legal cannabis industry, but they would impose extra difficulties.
Before the postponement was announced, he also stated that many of them were already conducting age verification. However, he also said that this could be a considerably more challenging assignment to tackle.
