YAK edibles is creating a paradigm shift in the medical marijuana industry. The first major branded product line in the category is revolutionizing how medical marijuana is being marketed in California.

San Francisco (PRWEB) April 18, 2010

This weekend, more than 30,000 attendees at the International Cannabis & Hemp Show 2010 taking place at San Francisco’s Cow Palace Arena, will be introduced to the nation’s first retail branded, complete medical marijuana product line.

YAK edibles, will be launching their branded product line which will undoubtedly create a paradigm shift in the way medical marijuana is delivered, packaged and branded. There are a total of eight products in the YAK edibles product line, with more in development.

Recent legal changes in California Proposition 215, exempts patients and defined caregivers who possess or cultivate marijuana recommended by a physician from criminal laws which otherwise prohibit possession or cultivation of marijuana.

YAK edibles management team consists of former computer, consumer electronic & healthcare industry veterans who have more than 20 years of brand building, packaging and retailing experience. They have taken their experience and applied it to a new growth category: medical marijuana.

“YAK edibles can deliver a quality product to the patient in an efficient manner with branding, packaging and pricing which resonates with dispensary’s caregivers. More importantly it’s beneficial to the patient, because the quality and availability of product is consistent throughout the state at affordable pricing,” according to a company spokesperson.

YAK edibles is launching a broad line of eight products, including; YAK Brownie, YAK Fudge, YAK Mini Cookies, YAK Greenie, YAK Sensi Star (cookie in star shape), YAK Haute Chocolate (instant hot chocolate drink), YAK Mocha Juana (instant coffee drink) and their best selling YAK Cannabis Extract Capsules.

The YAK Extract Capsules have proven to be very popular, because it gives the patient a perfectly measured dose of cannabis medication. It is a discrete way to medicate, when you’re on the go or just don’t feel like sweet snacks.

Each YAK edible product has specific levels of active medical cannabis flowers, depending on the patient dosage requirements.

YAK edibles is expanding its in-state distribution through dispensaries and making the YAK edible product line available to patients throughout California.

Registered patients can view and sample the YAK edible products this Saturday and Sunday (April 17th and April 18th) at the Cow Palace’s International Cannabis and Hemp Expo 2010 in San Francisco. This is a revolutionary trade show, as it is one of the first to offer consumption of medical marijuana on site, at a major trade show.

YAK edibles will display its products at booth 0-21, Prop 215 Outdoor section in the South Hall.

ABOUT THE “REGULATE, CONTROL AND TAX CANNABIS ACT OF 2010

YAK edibles supports the “The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010”

This California bill would control and tax cannabis in California and could generate $1.4 Billion in revenue per year in taxes. These funds could go towards jobs, public safety, healthcare, parks, roads, transportation and more. Controlling and taxing cannabis would save the state over $200 million that would have been spent on arrests, prosecutions, and prison for non-violent cannabis consumers, according to estimates by NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.) Furthermore this could generate an additional $12 -18 billion a year for California economy from spin-off industries like coffeehouses and tourism. More importantly, controlling and taxing cannabis will weaken the Mexican drug cartels, and enable police to focus on violent criminals, and replace dangerous street matter with safe, regulated cannabis sales outlets, putting street dealers and drug cartels out of business.
