Tempo, a producer of vibrantly natural, functional beverages, has announced its recent launch of a line of cannabis-infused wellness shots. The new 2.5-ounce wellness shots are infused with 25 milligrams of high-quality hemp-derived CBD. The shots also feature natural ingredients such as teas and fruits, crafted to support and enhance the body’s natural functions.

“We’ve been really excited about the innovations happening in the better-for-you beverage category over the last few years,” said Ryan Crane, Founder, and CEO of Tempo. “While interest in cannabis-infused beverages has been surging, we saw an opportunity to take a more purposefully clean and functional approach. We wanted to create a beverage packed with superfoods that were simultaneously convenient for the active, on-the-go professional. We all look for better solutions to improve our daily performance, manage stress, and to relax – and we should be able to use these products, conveniently, amidst the ups and downs of our busy lives,” he added.

This new launch builds on the company’s experience in functional beverages, including an established line of unsweetened sparkling teas currently sold in all Whole Foods locations throughout Illinois. The new cannabis-infused varieties were created to fit the daily routines and use cases of modern-day, active consumers.

“Our FOCUS shot is designed to enhance productivity and can be taken around demanding tasks such as work or travel, whereas our RECOVER shot is built for those that prefer CBD and other functional ingredients after an intense workout or at the end of a long, stressful workday,” explained Crane.

Vibrancy, credibility, and authenticity are three pillars upon which Tempo has established its move into the cannabis space. The new wellness shots feature high-quality CBD, as well as a variety of other premium superfoods blended in a clean way, without junk or additives.

The company has positioned the shots for retail distribution across specialty food service locations, convenience stores, as well as online. “Lifestyle channels also give us a chance to build our brand and increase customer trial around targeted experiences such as co-working spaces, or fitness classes,” added Crane. “That’s where our product is resonating most closely with consumers.”
