goodblend™ Texas, a retail brand of Parallel, one of the nation’s largest privately-held multi-state cannabis operators, today announced the launch of the first cannabis capsules for patients registered in the Texas Compassionate Use Program. These capsules are the fifth medical cannabis format option offered through the company’s Surterra Wellness branded product line, and the fourth first-to-market product innovation that it has launched in Texas in the last eight months.
“goodblend is proud to be the first medical cannabis dispensary in Texas to offer medical cannabis capsules to patients across the Lone Star State,” said Marcus Ruark, President of goodblend Texas. “The new cannabis capsule format reflects our commitment to innovating our product offerings and enhancing accessibility to help improve the quality of Texans’ lives. Capsules have been used for a long-time in medicine, so patients new to cannabis will be familiar with this delivery form. With more people in Texas turning to medical cannabis, we are meeting the needs of our diverse patients by offering a large variety of product options under a brand they know and trust.”
The capsule format provides patients with a precise, concentrated dose of a calibrated level of THC and CBD oil per capsule. The cannabis capsules, only available via goodblend Texas, are available in three terpene blend families, with each child-resistant package containing 60 capsules.
The launch of this new cannabis product format in Texas follows the recent news that Parallel invested $25M in a new state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation, production, and retail facility in San Marcos. This financial commitment expands Parallel’s ability to meet the growing demand for medical cannabis products in Texas. The planned 63,000 square-foot facility is expected to create hundreds of new jobs in the San Marcos region. The company also recently introduced its goodblend™ retail brand, which reflects Parallel’s intent to lead the way to the future of cannabis by providing patients a trusted, consistent and seamless way to connect and learn, and to access innovative, high-quality cannabis products in a variety of formulations.
