Offering wellness benefits of raw honey and CBD in single-serving “snap packs”
LOS ANGELES, CA (MARCH 30, 2022) – Red Belly Honey, the world’s only full-spectrum hemp honey infused with CBD by honeybees, is proud to announce its recent launch in Erewhon markets with seven locations in the Los Angeles area. The honey is now sold in all seven Erewhon markets in single-serving packets for $4. Each on-the-go 6 gram, no-mess packet of honey contains 1.8 mg of CBD.
“At Erewhon, we’re always searching for the latest and best-tasting products to help our customers live better,” says Vito Antoci, VP at Erewhon markets. “We’re very excited to offer Red Belly Honey which offers supportive health and wellness boosting properties in their all-natural product. It tastes delicious and can be easily integrated into any regular diet. Red Belly Honey is a great fit and we’re excited to see it thrive in our stores!”
Certified Glyphosate Residue Free, Red Belly Honey is free from any pesticide or herbicide residue and the process is bee-friendly, supporting healthy hives. It’s unique in that the CBD is naturally infused into the honey by the bees themselves, resulting in a single-ingredient product rich in beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes, and free of any artificial emulsifiers or stabilizers. This unique patented process renders the CBD oils water soluble, which increases bioavailability for increased effectiveness. “We know there’s CBD in our honey,” says founder Joline Rivera, “but we didn’t put it there–the bees did.”
Citing the belief that food is medicine, Rivera says “I am thrilled to bring Red Belly Honey to Erewhon, where they believe nutrition is the key to a radiant lifestyle.” Rivera created Red Belly Honey as a way for people to enjoy the health-promoting benefits of CBD and pure, raw honey in one delicious single-ingredient product.
This is the first retail partnership for Red Belly, which cites a 44% reorder rate for first time purchasers and includes fans and investors such as Max Goldberg, the founder of Organic Insider, Eugene Monroe, former NFL pro and first-round draft pick in 2009, and Jen Welter the first female coach in the NFL.
ABOUT RED BELLY HONEY Red Belly Honey is the world’s first and only 100% raw, full-spectrum CBD hemp honey naturally infused by bees, not humans. Unlike any other CBD product on the market, Red Belly Honey partnered with BeeFuse Technology using the patented process in which the bees do the infusing before the honey is harvested. The bees are offered a full-spectrum “hemp nectar”, break it down in their bee belly and pass the cannabinoids to the honeycomb cells. This process increases the bioavailability of the hemp compounds for better absorption, and therefore, quicker results. The result is a pure, potent, and delicious raw honey combined with the natural benefits of CBD; the only natural product food infused with CBD by nature. Red Belly earned Food and Wine Picks 2020 recognition. For more information, please visit redbellyhoney.com or follow on Instagram @redbellyhoney.
