Toast has been rolling pre-rolls since 2017 and sets itself apart in the market by its commitment to innovation and superior quality. Toast uses thoughtfully selected genetics and high-quality flower to the craftsmanship and attention to detail in manufacturing to the beautiful packaging to create pre-rolls it calls a Slice. Massachusetts patients and consumers can select from the following options today with more to roll out in the future:
Toast Slices contain 100% flower, expertly rolled in hemp paper and topped with a specially designed filter to smooth the smoke. Toast Slices are the perfect product for the “cannacurious” and available in 2 varieties:
- Toast Original which has a 2:1 CBD:THC blend and Toast Reserve which has a 1:1 CBD:THC blend. Both products are available in a 2 and 5 pack.
- Toast Classic features some of the most coveted and potent strains on the market, which are chosen for their terpene profile and euphoric effect. Toast Classic is available in 0.5g and 1g in Sativa, Indica and Hybrid varieties and is made with 100% flower.
- Toast Infused is produced with a proprietary manufacturing process and ensures a smooth and perfect burn every time. Each 1.2g pre-roll blends 100% flower which contains a range of major and minor cannabinoids, premium distillate and aromatic terpenes ideal for the “cannaseur.”
“Our launch in Massachusetts has been our most efficient to date - showcasing the strong execution capabilities of Team TILT. The early response to Toast products by consumers, patients and the industry has been very positive. We’re excited to work with TILT to make Toast a leading pre-roll brand in Massachusetts,” said Punit Seth, Toast Co-Founder and CEO.
