The fresh-pressed herbs or “pucks” allow users to vaporize and inhale cannabis, which as in the case of nicotine vapes, are said to be a healthier way of consuming the substances than via combustion. Moreover, vaporizing dry herb is believed to allows cannabis connoisseurs to enjoy the plant’s full flavour.

“We believe that the more sophisticated way is to actually use the flower, but there really hasn’t been any innovation in the dry flower space,” said lead investor David Salinas, who also serves as chief growth officer for New Haven-based Digital Surgeons, and founded District New Haven, a $25 million technology and innovation startup ecosystem and real estate development.

After its initial launch in Massachusetts, HUUE is looking to mount a rapid expansion into other legal cannabis states, including Connecticut, which is expected to allow cannabis use for adults by the end of 2022. “I think the company had the unique innovation in this space where it could be [worth] in the hundreds of millions of dollars,” said Salinas. He added that HUUE could team up with established cannabis companies to offer their marijuana in the form of HUUE’s patented puck. “We can partner with any brand.”

The US vape mail’s effect on the cannabis industry

Meanwhile, the recent vape mail ban that has gone into effect in the US, is expected to also have a negative effect on the cannabis industry as it also includes cannabis vape products. “To the extent that they are participants in the industry who are selling vape products, it absolutely affects them,” explained North Carolina cannabis attorney Rod Kight, back in March about the ban.

Industry insiders have pointed out that the restrictions enforced by this bill are no different than those that the legal cannabis industry already has in place, however, they would add additional burdens. “A lot of them are doing age verification already,” said Kight before the delay was announced. “For some, this is going to be a larger project to take on.”
