Right now, hemp-derived, Delta9 THC-infused beverages are legal to sell in Minnesota in almost all retail locations--except liquor stores because of a glitch in state law. But, we're ready for the change coming soon... Apply to be one of the first liquor stores to carry Crooked beverages.
LEGAL? SAFE? YES
In Minnesota, food and beverages containing certain kinds of THC can be sold at any retail store, restaurant, or cafe in Minnesota as a result of a new law in 2022. Minnesota Statute 151.72 contains testing, labeling and enforcement requirements, but the bottom line is that if the THC is Delta 9 and taken from Hemp, the food or beverage can contain up to 5 mg of THC per serving and be sold in any customer-facing outlet. This regulation is separate from high-potency adult use cannabis that is still not legally sold in Minnesota. The low-dose, Hemp-derived THC market will continue to allow open access if and when Minnesota passes a law to legalize high-potency adult use cannabis.
HEMP BASED MARKET
Became legal in July, 2022
Few consumers sales restrictions (allowed to be sold in liquor, restaurants, bars, convenience, delivery) - Your business qualifies to sell our products today!
No special Federal Tax rules, which means you don’t have to worry about profits causing the tax issues of other THC products
State-by-state expansion possible & federal Farm Bill, likely to expand nationwide
ADULT USE CANNABIS MARKET
Hemp derived THC market expected to operate in parallel to adult use recreational market
Adult use market is anticipated to have highly restricted consumer sales
No federal tax exemptions / Restricted banking and insurance
Costly regulator compliance and raw materials will restrict growth and profits

PROPOSED CHANGES TO MN LEGISLATION WILL HELP...
Legislation moving through this year is set to correct the liquor store blockade. The bills for full cannabis legalization are keeping the low dose, hemp-derived market, adding a minimal licensing requirement, and setting up local governments to enforce state-based regulations. It should be a big win for all retailers who want to provide high-quality products in compliance with state law.
We are confident this change for liquor stores is coming, and we want to work with you to get ready. In fact, we think liquor stores will be the go-to place for Minnesotans to buy THC beverages this summer, especially after everyone knows the full cannabis marketplace is on its way. Let's do this together.
We are offering liquor retailers the opportunity to offer gift cards redeemable for our beverages - with SAME DAY delivery!
Buy here and meet your drinks at home… its a legal thing (show the gift card and gift card display)
This allows retailers like yourselves to measure interest while making some money along the way. Interested
ECONOMICS - IT PAYS WELL
Our wholesale prices are competitive, although making drinks with real fruit, packaging them in child resistant cans and wrapping them with pretty packages is pricey. We believe it will pay off. We are making it possible for spa’s to sell our 4 packs for walkout customers which is 100% legal and highly encouraged as it is sure to perform as well as your top selling lotions and other beauty products! You can be up and running with as little as 6 cases (one of each SKU) that's also our minimum order - but you'll sell these fast and most operators are buying 3X that each week. Plus, we deliver weekly so we can also bring you more when you run out!
