Why use 21UP molds?
This innovation was needed because individual candies, once out of wraps, can be just as difficult to identify as being “for adults only” as a sugary piña colada or rum and Coke. Although cannabis, unlike liquor, is non-lethal, kids should not be eating it like candy. (Too large a dose can make for an uncomfortable day of malaise even for an adult.) Also, parents or legal guardians could face prosecution if their child is exposed to anything meant for adults only.
“Keeping parents and kids safe is the goal here,” says Garyn Angel, founder and CEO of MagicalButter.com. His company makes the MagicalButter machine, the countertop botanical extractor he invented for making Magical Gummies and other cannabis-infused foods. “The 21UP Initiative is something we expect the industry and consumers to embrace, since protecting children is important to everyone. Every medicated food item bearing a clear ‘21UP’ notice makes it very easy to identify them.”
A team approach to safety
To encourage broad acceptance of this protective measure, we offer the use of our trademarked 21UP™ logo to any company making medicated products such as gummies, hard candies, lollipops, etc. We provide the completed molds at a 3 percent royalty and 10 percent net profit, plus production cost. This ensures our molds are the least expensive to buy and manufacture, helping to promote self-regulation within the industry. All packaging proudly bears the label “Made in USA.” Because ours is an industry that cares about people, we believe widespread adoption of the 21UP Initiative will be swift and viral.
Release of the 21UP Gummy Molds is slated for late 2016 at a retail price of two for $9.95.
