The Clear, a legacy national cannabis brand of innovative distilled concentrate products, exhibited and celebrated its 10th anniversary and the expansion into its 10th state at MJBizCon from Nov. 15 through 18 in Las Vegas. 

In collaboration with pre-roll manufacturing and technology company RollPros Inc., the Clear demonstrated a new cannabis innovation, Blackbird, the world's first fully automated “hand-roll” machine. 

“Over the last decade, our unwavering commitment to product consistency, product safety, technological advancement and consumer experience established the foundation to support our brand’s expansion across 10 states. Our next launch will be Mississippi — a feat we’re extremely proud of,” said Richard Batenburg Jr., chief executive officer of Clear Cannabis Inc. licensor of the Clear brand. 

“To properly expand, scale and provide our loyal customers with the same great products – regardless of where they’re located – we’ve implemented the innovative Blackbird machine to dramatically increase throughput for our premium TWAX hand-roll-style joints.” 

Specifically designed to tackle the quality, consistency, and labor challenges associated with manufacturing cannabis pre-rolls, the Blackbird Rolling System uses TruRoll technology, gravity, and volumetric filling to produce over 750 consistent, uniform, and rolled pre-rolls per hour. A pioneer of the Blackbird Rolling System, with over 60 Blackbirds currently in the market, the Clear is one of the first major brands to utilize this technology to support its state expansion goals by delivering high-quality, rolled pre-rolls that only the Blackbird could produce. 

“We’re honored to showcase our Blackbird technology alongside the Clear as two joined entities entering new cannabis markets at the forefront of innovation,” said Tyler Vaughan, director of sales & marketing at RollPros. 

“Our Blackbird TruRoll technology – which can roll two precise TWAX joints every nine seconds – is uniquely equipped to continue the Clear’s business initiative of providing consistent quality across state lines and consumption formats.” 

The multistate cannabis brand also demonstrated proprietary automated vape cartridge-filling and capping technology from cannabis engineering and development company Detroit Dispensing Solutions. The CFS-1800 vape cartridge filling machine employs an industrial-grade robot to fill cartridges, pods, and disposables with speed, precision, and reliability at high capacities while maintaining the lowest dispensing temperatures in the industry. 

“Like the Clear, our company will commemorate a major accomplishment at MJBizCon – and we looked forward to sharing this impactful moment with their team,” said Chris Joseph, CEO of Detroit Dispensing Solutions. 

“At the conference, our company will celebrate our technology’s 10 millionth cartridge filling since inception, thus showcasing the advancements we’ve made over the last 10 years of designing and engineering production equipment for the cannabis industry.” 

Ranked No. 2 cannabis concentrate brand in Colorado, the most competitive cannabis market in the world, by BDSA, the Clear’s growing portfolio of consumption formats and proprietary manufacturing processes ensures its customer base receives the highest-quality cannabis in its new state, Mississippi, as well as nine other states throughout the country. 

The Clear line, which includes vape cartridges, infused, hand-rolled joints, and microdose gummy products, is available in California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, and Oklahoma (availability of various products by state and retailer). The national cannabis leader has plans to roll out additional consumption formats and expand into emerging markets throughout the east coast in 2023.
