Canopy Growth Corporation has launched its first line of CBD vapes and consumers will soon be able to purchase them at Circle K convenience stores.

The product line, called whisl, features interchangeable pods in three formulas, each containing 200 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD with no THC

The three pods are marketed as Tune In, for focus, Intermission, for relaxation, and Fade Out, for sleep.

“At Canopy Growth, we are pioneering the concept of using CBD to help consumers manage their moods at any given time of day,” said Andy Lytwynec, vice president, global vape business at Canopy Growth. “With whisl, we want to empower consumers to quickly achieve focus, calmness or prepare for sleep with a modern CBD solution that is fast-acting and can fit seamlessly into anyone’s daily routine.”

While the vapes are currently available for purchase online through Canopy, they will be on the shelves of more than 3,000 Circle K convenience stores nationwide beginning Oct. 1. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $39.99 for the starter kit and $19.99 per package.

While whisl is Canopy’s first line of CBD vapes in Canada, the company sells hemp-derived CBD products in the U.S. through the First & Free and Martha Stewart CBD brands.

It’s also not the first venture into cannabis for Circle K, which operates 15,000 stores across North America, Europe and Asia.

In January, Circle K, owned by Quebec-based company Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., began carrying cannabis gift cards for retailer Fire & Flower. That deal followed Alimentation Couche-Tard investing just under $26 million in Fire & Flower, obtaining a 9.9 per cent stake in the company.

In June, the Circle K and Fire & Flower began opening co-locations across Alberta. The partnership has Fire & Flower eyeing global expansion as new cannabis markets emerge, including in the U.S., according to the company’s latest quarterly report.
