NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Cannabis legalization movement continues to gain momentum across the U.S., a new market has emerged of high-end consumers. Toast ™, a luxury, lifestyle Cannabis brand that provides a sophisticated consumer experience, is redefining how consumers enjoy Cannabis. Born in Aspen, Colorado, and bred on the pillars of purity, style, and luxury, Toast ™ establishes a new world order for the etiquette of recreational Cannabis use.
Toast ™ provides a trusted quality and refined experience in which each puff is like having a sip of champagne and each full Slice™ is like having a generous glass. Each Slice™ is developed using a proprietary manufacturing process and 100% Cannabis blend, which result in a consistent and ideal experience for the Toast™ consumer.
The Toast™ experience will activate the mind and relax the body while keeping the consumer in control - the ideal state of mind for making social connections. Toast™ presents consumers with an instinctive experience that allows them complete control over their level of indulgence. As a responsible leader in the Cannabis industry, Toast™ is committed to safe consumption practices providing a uniform and predictable experience, allowing users to more carefully monitor and regulate their intake.
Toast™ establishes a new etiquette for the Cannabis industry embracing how smoking Cannabis in controlled and mild doses can enhance a social experience. A recent study from Miner & Co. Studio stated that an "…overwhelming majority of Cannabis Consumers [polled] are consuming Cannabis and Cannabis products to enhance their daily and social experiences. 95% prefer a high that allows them to be 'present', 'mindful' and/or 'focused'…"
Punit Seth, Co-Founder and CEO states, "Toast™ has the hypothesis that our consumers want to enjoy Cannabis with the reliability, ease and potency of a fine cocktail or wine - that is, not like a drug but a lifestyle enhancement through social and responsible consumption. Market tests overwhelmingly supported that claim and that Toast™ is the only brand for the people who seek to share an elegant, fun, and controlled Cannabis experience with friends."
Toast™ is co-founded by a set of successful former executives including CEO Punit Seth (previously at Bridgewater Associates and Accenture) and Senior Advisor Chris Burggraeve (former Global CMO of Anheuser-Busch InBev). Together, the founders have harnessed their individual expertise in finance and operations, digital, entrepreneurship, and consumer brand building to elevate Toast™ to the forefront of the Cannabis marketplace. The founders have a shared mission to help shape the burgeoning Cannabis market (estimated to grow to $50B) into one that encourages social and responsible consumption.
"Cannabis is starting to lose its taboo and slowly but surely becoming societally acceptable. As a direct result of the mainstreaming of Cannabis, brands like Toast™ will be the standard bearers for responsible, beautiful, and consistent usage." Eddie Miller, Co-Founder and Chief Business Development Officer stated.
Toast™ will be available at The Original Leaf in Aspen, CO. starting on February 10th, 2017 and be available in other select dispensaries across the state.
