DENVER, April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The next evolution of drinking with friends has come to the Midwest and East Coast. Keef Brands, founded in 2010 in Boulder, CO as one of the original cannabis-infused beverage companies and now ranked by BDS Analytics as the country's number one cannabis beverage brand, is proud to announce a major expansion into Missouri, Ohio and Maine.

"Now is a prime time for Keef Brands to make its way across the country and introduce new markets to our revolutionary wave of consumption," said Keef Brands CEO Travis Tharp.

Keef brings people together as they connect over the shared experience of enjoying infused drinks."

The cachet of cannabis beverages is on the rise, with sales up 40 percent from 2019 to 2020 according to recent Headset data. Less experienced cannabis consumers and medical patients in newly legal markets are turning to beverages as an approachable, familiar way to experience the plant, while others are embracing cannabis beverages as both a social libation and alternative to alcohol.
The expansion follows a benchmark 2020 for Keef Brands, during which the company celebrated its 10th anniversary. 2020 also saw Keef Brands earn the largest year over year growth of beverage market share (by dollars sold) in 2020, according to BDS Analytics, and a partnership with BevCanna to position Keef Brands' expansion into Canada later this year.
Along with this most recent expansion to Ohio, Maine and Missouri, Keef Brands is widely available at more than 1000 dispensaries and delivery services in California, Colorado, Arizona, Oklahoma, as well as Puerto Rico.
